DICC #28


Hello! It's April 1st, so there is a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge for you! Our newest itinerary is from Patricia Hays. As usual, the challenge is to use at least 3 items off of the list. Here is Patricia's itinerary:


1. humorous or punny sentiment


2. no glitter


3. suitable for a child under 10


4. 2 or more patterned papers


5. sponging



6. masculine



7. clean and simple



8. pearls



9. punched or die cut embellishments

10. brown

I decided to make an Easter card for Phoenix. Shhhhhh!!! Don't tell him! I had this cute bunny boy from The Greeting Farm for, like, ever...so I just had to use this cutie for my cutie. I used #'s 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, and 10.


Isn't he a sweet? He's got hair kinda like Phoenix's to. I used my watercolor markers and Copics to color the image in. I sponged on some Evergreen Bough Distress Ink (yes, with a cosmetic sponge) around the edge of the white circle.

I kept is uber simple...only one patterned paper (which is insane for me!), a cool piece of yarn and 3 rhinestones, because Phoenix loves rhinestones!

Thankfully, I have the girl version of this bunny too...so I better get hopping and color her up for Rhiannon! Please be sure to visit the DICC blog to see what the rest of the Design Team has come up with for this itinerary. I hope you'll play along!

2 quick suggestions, you should also be sure to check out the Bombshell Blog today, as well as the Simply B Stamps Blog. There are some great things happening at both of those places! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

I'm glad to be the guest designer at DICC, and it's fun seeing what other stampers are doing with the itinerary.

Love is Love with Nathalie Kalbach and Friends

The Stampendous team is showcasing the fabulous stamps and stencils from Nathalie Kalbach this week, and some of Nathalie's friends have been joining us. There are 3 prize packaages up for grabs, and anyone can win! Visit the Stampendous Blog for full details. I have been thinking a lot about the recent tragedy to the LGBT community in Orlando, and I decided to use Nathalie's Urban Scribble set for today's project. I started off with the foam stamp (the blank side) and colored a rainbow on it using my Tombow Dual Brush markers. I sprayed the foam stamp with a little water to re-wet the colors, and get some nice splotches. I applied the stamp, then I went back with the detail stamp and inked it up with Tuxedo Black Memento ink.  Then, using the stencil that comes in the Urban Scribble set, plus the Picasso tool, I stenciled some pixelated clouds in the background. I hand wrote "Love is Love." I decided to not make this a card..but rather some
