My Creative Time Designer's Challenge - Miss Kim





















Happy Saturday Everyone. I am so glad it's the weekend. :) This card is for the Designer's Challenge over at My Creative Time (Emma) and Miss Kim is the hostess. She chose to do a Tic Tac Toe challenge. Your project has to have three items in a row, horizontal, vertical or diagonal. You can also do anything in addition if you choose to.

My sweet son, embossed the card and cut out the die for me :) Hey, got to give credit where credit is due right?

I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder on Kraft card stock, Emma's sweet postage frame die, those darling rabbits are from Emma's stamp set Hello Spring. The patterned paper is from a 6 x 6 paper pad called Harvest Lane by Simple Stories. The buttons and pearls are from my stash and I added stickles to the bunnies to bring them to life.

Check out Emma's project and all the Designer's projects. They did an amazing job, as always.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by my blog. I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend. Enjoy.

Bunny Leprechaun




















Hi Everyone,

Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here to share my project this month. Since Easter is right after St. Patrick's Day, I thought I would make this cute bunny card. He is delivering eggs and a pot of gold. I got the image from Create a Critter, I sized him to 8", copied him and welded him to make the card. I then cut two layers, one in black and one in pink and adhered them to the base of the card. I used wire for his whiskers. I got the leprechaun hat from Paper Doll Dress Up, which is sized at 5 1/2", I used gold stickles to jazz it up. I made a little basket out of burlap by just adhering the sides with glue, the handle is jute. I used the stamp set called Hello Spring which is from Emma at My Creative Time for the eggs, the stamp set comes with those cute dies. I used pink and green ink to stamp on the eggs.

The pot of gold is also from Paper Doll Dress Up and that was cut at 2 1/2". I also added gold stickles on top for gold nuggets. I used pop dots to adhere it to the burlap basket.

Thank you Sheila for having me again. I enjoy my monthly projects :) I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. See you soon.

Stamping with Bleach


Hi Everyone, Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room here for my turn on the Bugbytes. Thank you Miss Pam for having me.
I thought I would do an oldie but goody technique, which is stamping with Bleach. I learned this years ago and had an aha moment when I was thinking of what to do. It might be new to some of you who have never heard of it or tried it. 
Don't worry, it doesn't ruin your stamps, you just wash them off with a little soap and water. These images are from an older stamp set from Stampin' Up. I'm so sorry, but, I don't know the name of it. It's funny because, I organized most of my stamp sets in CD cases and forgot to name some of them. :( Shame on me.
















I folded a couple of pieces of paper on my table and put a piece of paper towel on top. I figured I didn't need a lot of bleach so this was fine. I poured some bleach onto the paper towel. I stamped, just like you would stamp in ink and Viola. These images are embedded so the image isn't crisp with the bleach, but, I liked the look of it. One image is a flower, one is a dragonfly and one is leaves.
















The base of the card which is an A2 size card,  is card stock from Stampin' Up, the mat is Designer paper from a 6 x 6 paper pad called Away We Go from My Mind's Eye. The ribbon is also from Stampin' Up. I added a brad to the ribbon. I didn't put a sentiment yet because I'm not sure what I'll be doing with the card yet. :) Well, that is my project for today. Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend, see you soon.
