Coloring!

 P1050068

Hi Everyone! Here's one more (lol) and the last example this week from the Fun & Fast Notes.113500 This time, I took the Stampin' Markers and outlined the cup and flowers with different colors. I did not use a stamp pad! and did not color the sentiment only the image. I got 2 stamped images out of one outlining. Then using markers, colored the images. P1050069

I used the cardstock colors of Bashful Blue, Certainly Celery and Whisper White. I ran the Bashful Blue through the Big Shot using the 117335 Perfect Polka Dot.  Here's two different looks using the same color combos.

Tip: While your stamps are out, make a few versions using your colors and tools. Great way to help build up your cards so they are ready to send at a moments notice!

These and the little hedgehog from yesterday's posting are all ready on their way to a few folks as thank you's...this set is Fun and Fast ! Happy Crafting! ~Dee

Fun and Fast

P1050070 
Hi Everyone! Here's another card from the Fun and Fast stamp set. I used the color combinations of Pretty in Pink and Chocolate Chip. I colored the images with Stampin' UP! markers in matching colors :)

My postings for the rest of the week will be mostly discriptors because a limb fell on  and broke our phone/DSL line in yesterday's high winds. They said it will be SATURDAY! before it's repaired. Yikes! So I'm posting over my lunch hour.

Happy Crafting! ~Dee

All Spruced Up

P1050067
Hi Everyone! I forgot how much I like the Fun & Fast Notes stamp set 113500 (p70 in Idea Catalog). Especially now that I added a few markers to my collection. I used the Rich Regal collection 119701 to color in the tree.  I ran the chocolate chip cardstock through the Big Shot using a texturizing template from Backgrounds 114512 set. I don't think my photo shows it well, but the tree has Champagne Glass Glitter 120997 to Spruce it UP! Happy Crafting! ~ Dee

Handmade Gifts - Felt Flowers Revisited and Video

P1050019
 
Hi Everyone! I wanted to share how ADORABLE these felt flowers can be!! I just love all the uses: on hats, coats, bag accent, used in  place of a bow on a gift or on a headband. I like how they look just clustered in a basket too! P1050020

Oh for a little girl in the family! Look how pretty a few of they are on a headband :)
And I'm going to make a few in my nephew's HS colors for his basketball games. I can see making these for cheerleaders, fans, etc...to show team spirit in a fashionable way. I have a request to make one in brown for a friend's coat. I just can't wait to make more colors! I can get quite a few done in 2 evenings. I cut the felt one night then sew the next. Great project to do while watching your shows at night .

Materials needed:
Felt (local hobby or fabric store)
Needle
Hot glue gun
Pins or hairclips
SU Supplies
Big Shot die machine 113439
Circles#2 die 114526
