June Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop: "Textures and Layers"

Hello bloggy friends! It's the last Wednesday of the month so that means it's time for the Bombshell Stamps Hump Day Hop! This month, I challenged the participants to make a project with "Textures and Layers." I made a mini page (6x6) featuring the focal image from the Growing Hearts set.

As you can see, I used lots of layers, and a few textures as well. Here's a closeup of my coloring of the image.

I colored her with my Spectrum Noir markers. I looooove the Turquoise set. You can see some of the layers I made with some Spellbinders dies....I embossed them for some added texture.

My second layer of paper (with all the swirly rainbow colors) was a lot of fun to make. My daughter was finger painting last week and I decided to join her. So I painted a big sheet of paper, so that I could cut them up for some projects. It has some lovely texture in it. Plus, I embossed on top of it with my Damask stencil from Dreamweaver, and their White Embossing Paste. You can see I also used a banner from the Bombshell Banner Sayings set.

You can click on any of the images to see them bigger. I had a lot of fun with this. Combining all of the different elements, papers, etc. I hope you like my project! Now it's time for you to hop along! Below is the full hop list. Enjoy! Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
