Golden Ivy

Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to get out the heat gun
and do a little embossing.
The stamps I am going to use today
come from the wonderful world of

Sheena has a great line of products
called Paint Fusion. You can use paints with her stamps. Or as I did, use embossing powder.

You can purchase these items from

Here are the two stamps I used.

I started out with a piece of black chipboard.
Stamped the ivy images with VersaMark,
then dusted them with gold embossing powder.
Pulled out the handy dandy heat gun,
and voila, gold outlined leaves.

To give the leaves some color, I took a tiny
paint brush and dabbed some Pearl Ex
in the centers. ( If you use a brush stroke, the
Pearl Ex will go all over the place).

The colors I used,
644-Reflex Violet
685-Spring Green

I took the heat gun and went
over the powder to help it set.
After that I used the tiny flower from
the Berrie stamp and embossed them
 over the the leaves.
That's it!

Very easy, and something you may
want to try with your kiddos.
"( You use the heat gun!!)"
"( Never let children around)"
"(unattended heat sources)"
Always be safe!! 
:)  :)
Stamp something out, and let them color it in.
Place it on the Fridge, and you have
a masterpiece for life.

I hoped you enjoyed the post today.

Sweet Pea Stamp

Hi everyone

This week I am having fun with my favorite
Stamps from Crafter's Companion.
I love working with any of the fairy stamps.
There are Flower Fairies And Fairyopolis products
to pick from.
 Today I thought I would combine them both.

This adorable stamp is from the
Flower Fairy Friends.
It is called Sweet Pea.

I started out with the Fairyopolis card stock.
The card stock and rubons, came from

One piece I used for the card and the
 purple butterfly piece I ripped around the edges
 and placed it down using a good liquid glue.
I stamped the image on the card stock using Stick n Spray on the wonderful Rock-A-Blocks system. Then colored it in with the New Spectrum-Noir  markers. 
I colored two sets.  Cut the wings out of one set, then
attached them with small clear pop dots,
 To give it a 3-D effect.
Placed that down on the purple card stock
and added four Picture Stickers.
The butterflies are from the Fairyopolis Kit.
Just place them on the project and rub down.
Easy as pie!! (if you know how to make pie)
Here is another picture of the Project.

I hope you like it.

There are all kinds of fun prizes to be had
all this month. There is still time to make a project
and enter it in the contest.
So dig out all your crafting supplies,and Crafter's Companion stamps, make a mess, and have fun.
We would love to see what you come up with.

Fairy Dust

Hello Everyone,

Over the weekend I received a cute little stamp called
Silver Fairy from Whimsy stamps.
I purchased it from a great company called
Super prices and fast shipping.
Tell them I sent you.

I stared out with some
I wanted to make a gate fold card.
So I pulled out
This tool makes it so easy to score the folds
and make the card.
I stamped out the fairy on bleed proof
paper and colored it  in with my
These markers are alcohol based
 and come in over 160 colors.
Super easy to blend and create the effect you want.
I cut her out and placed her on
 a layer of gold and black card stock.
Then stamped the Birch Tree from the
Magnolia stamp set on the black paper
 with white chalk ink.

I found a great product called
When you put it on something, it dries
 to a hard glossy finish.
You can also use it as a glue.
It works fast and hold very well.
 Here I used it on the wings .

On the front I added some prima flowers
and little leaves I cut out with my Big Shot
Machine using the cuttle bug leaf shape.
The middle of the card was cut out with
 the new Heartfelt Creations die called
Decorative Chateau Gate.
From Spellbinders.
Here are a couple more pictures.

To finish up, I punch butterfly wholes
 to string the ribbon through,
And tied bows to close it up.

I had a great time making this for you.
I hope you like it.

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.
