Washi Tape Wednesday 6/28/17

Hello Crafty friends,
I hope you are having a great day.  Today I want to share with you a card I made using some of the 2 inch washi tape that Fun Stampers Journey sells.

I started the card, by using a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock measuring at 5 3/8 x 4 1/8.  I then took the Mother Nature washi tape and placed a strip on either side of the cardstock.  There will be a strip in the middle that does not get covered.  That is ok.  That is where I wrapped a piece of Pineapple Smoothie Gingham ribbon around and tied a bow.  That is how easy it is to create a very simple background paper.
Fun Stampers Journey has five more choices of 2 inch washi tape.  You can check it our here.

Supplies Used:
Stamp: Happy Sentiments
Paper: Whip Cream Cardstock, Pineapple Smoothie Cardstock, Watermelon Fusion Cardstock
Ink: Black Licorice
Ribbon: Pineapple Smoothie Gingham Ribbon
Accessories: Rainbow Drops
Tools: Summer Pretties Punch

CYCI #162 Sketch Challenge

Hello Crafty Friends!
Today we have a new challenge over at the Can You Case it Facebook group.  It is a sketch challenge and I always love sketch challenges.
Here is the card I created:

I used Rich Coral Cardstock, Whip Cream Cardstock and Under the Sea Pattern Prints to create the base of my card and layers.
I then stamped the crab from Snappy Birthday using Rich Coral ink on Whip Cream Cardstock and detail cut him out.  I also stamped the sentiment on another piece of Whip Cream Cardstock.
Before I added the crab to the card, I used the Hazelnut Blend Pan Pastel (coming July 1st) to create the background of sand.

I hope you will join us with this challenge:

Faith Friday 6/23/17

Hello crafty friends!
Today, I have a Bible Journaling page I want to share with you.

I love the way this page turned out.  I wanted it to be dramatic because of the subject of the verse. 
To create this page:
1. I die cut the Color Cross die out of a piece of scrap cardstock.  I then held it in place with a piece of washi tape.
2. I then took the Pomegranate Splash PanPastel from the Mother Nature set and created the shadow around the cross.
3. I took the Cranberry Bliss Silk and brushed it on starting at the die cut and working out.

Supplies Used:
Dies: Color Cross
Silk: Cranberry Bliss
PanPastel: Mother Nature
