Hello Butterflies - Thermoweb

Welcome back!  I've got some pretty butterflies for you today with some alcohol inked EVO panels, Deco Foil and Adhesive Transfers!

I actually created this one a while ago and started this post and forgot about it!  I'm not sure how because Iove this one, but I did.

I alcohol inked a couple panels of EVO paper and while the ink was still tacky, I added some foil to it using some of my used sheets.  I sprayed Glitter Dust over the yellow panel. In fact, I haven't done this in a while and think it's time I got my alcohol inks out again and played a bit!

I used the Oh Hello Adhesive Transfers from Therm O Web for the sentiment directly onto the alcohol inked panel.  I love that you can apply the adhesive transfers with or without heat!

Then I die cut the Flying Butterflies from the yellow panel and glued the frame to the blue panel and then added the butterflies, popping up their wings using varying thicknesses of foam tape.

That's me for today!  I hope you enjoyed it and you'll come again soon!

You're Grrreat! with Miss Ink Stamps

Welcome back!  Today I'm sharing this one using Miss Ink Stamps Jungle Friends stamp set along with the Big Paws Stencil!

I started with a Gel Press print using the Big Paws Stencil and then stamped, cut and colored the big cats from Jungle Friends.

I decided to double up on that Wonky Square Frame from Avery Elle... I cut it in dark and it was too dark and white was too stark but using one as a shadow was just right with that background and helps my felines to pop.  And of course the sentiments on that set are Grrreat!

Thank you so much for stopping and I hope you'll come again soon!

Crafty Elves Countdown to Christmas - January 2023 Edition

Welcome back!  It's time for the first Crafty Elves post of the year and we've got lots of great Christmas inspiration for you!

Every 25th of the month my fellow Crafty Elves and I share the Christmas Cards we made for the month.  And this month is special because we've got a special guest joining us!  So after you're done here be sure you visit Debra, Michael, Misty and our special guest, Chris Franco!  And when you visit Chris make sure you say Happy Birthday to her! 

So here's how I was inspired:

January in my world means lots of extra hours at work, so I am finding myself a little behind.  So I have one card for you this month but it's a good one I think!

During the last Coffee Lover's Blog Hop I won a gift code to the Ink N Splatter shop and I knew right away what I wanted!  This adorable Snow Wonderful Snowmen set is just super adorable!

I stamped, die cut and colored this snow couple image and had a gel print handy that I created with a beautiful Snowflake Mandala stencil from Gina K Designs.  And I cut a frame using the Avery Elle Wonky Squares dies that I picked up over at Doodlebugs.

Thank you so much for stopping!  Don't forget to check out what everyone else has for you today!  But before you go, let's see who is the winner of some Happy Mail from my December post:

Vanessa!  Send me your snail mail at bzscrapper66 at gmail dot com.

Thanks so everyone who stopped and visited and left some love and we'll do it again this month!

Come again soon!

Therm O Web Bake Me Happy Week with Rubbernecker Stamps, Trinity Stamps and Gina K!

Welcome back!  We've got some delicious inspiration up on the Therm O Web blog this week!  It's time to Bake Me Happy!

If you know me at all, you know that cake is my favorite!  I've used this great cake die from Rubbernecker Stamps...

As well as this adorable cake loving gnome from Trinity Stamps.  Pair them with a couple Gina K Designs stencils and lots of yummy Therm O Web Deco Foil and Glitz Glitter Gel and ... well... makes me want to break open a can of frosting.

I hope you'll join me over there for links and details!

And with this one I'm playing along over at Double Trouble Challenge Blog!  I've used stitches and met the twist with a magical gnome (honestly I'd say the cake is more magical than the gnome but and I'm also playing along with their partner this time around, The Fairy and The Unicorn Challenge! Be sure to head over and play along with both for extra chances to win!

Thank you so much for stopping!  I hope you'll come again soon!

Hey Wild Thing - Miss Ink Stamps

Happy Friday!  I'm back with another background I made using the A2 Masking stencils ... this time along with the Zebra Stripe stencil!  This time I added some Transfer Gel and Deco Foiled in Magical Shattered Glass... I LOVE it!

I didn't want to cover up too much of my background because I love it!  So I just made a big sentiment using the alpha from the EI EI O Dies along with a sentiment from Jingle Friends and added some flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping!  Come again soon for more inspiration!

Miss Ink Stamps - A Fine Art

Welcome back!  I had a play with the A2 Masking Stencil set again!  This time I used it along with the Art Deco Stencil for a fun rainbow background.

 I finished it off with some images and a sentiment from the Blooming Brushes set.  I kept all of the colors soft and this time I've included both the Copic colors and Distress Oxide colors that I used.

And I have a video for you:

Fun, right??

That's me!  Hope you enjoyed it!

Come again soon!
