Happy Birthday

Hello! This is Kim and I am sharing this birthday card today using the adorable Party Mouse set. I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored in using Copic markers. I created the background with the markers also. I wanted to make this a fun birthday card so I used a variety of patterned papers and added the heart embellishment.

Happy Birthday Mouse Tags

Another project?  Well yes!!  :) 
This one is a bit simpler than what I have been trying out lately!
Today's project is geared towards kids/children. 
I have a few birthday's coming up and I wanted to make my own tags for the special birthday recipient!   The tag is colorful and fun!!  Who wouldn't shake those stars around?!?! 

The base of the tag is a wood veneer tags.  I simply traced the tag onto patterned paper and trimmed accordingly.   I used mod podge to adhere the paper to the tag.  I didn't want the paper to be my focal point, so I covered it with a thin layer of Golden Gesso.  Once it was dried, I applied a small of Faber Castell Glass Bead Glitter Gel to the edges.  While that dried I colored, fussy cut and create my shaker photo frame.  

See told you it was much simpler than my other creations!  
Hope you are having a great weekend. 

See you soon!

A Cameo in Sepia: Technique

Hello, Josette here for Tuesdays project.  I love the look of Cameos and the stamp by Sweet stamp is the perfect image for this technique.  Lets Take a look and I will share the technique highlights.

Full details on the technique will be showcased on my Blog later this week, so stay tuned.  My blog is: Little Bits, stop by in a few days and I will have a photo tutorial posted.  

But I will share the process here.  Using 140# cardstock, I brushed a mixture of Distress ink and water loosely onto the paper and dried.  Then I used a dark brown Archival ink to stamp the image.  After completely dry, I brushed in more of the distress ink to fill the shadows.  In this photo I used Gathered Twigs as it bleaches with purple and teal tones.  The next step was using a liner brush, painted household bleach onto the stamped image and let dry naturally.  All that was needed was a tag and a bow.  Perfect!!

Here is the close up of the Cameo, I love the various browns with a hint of color!

Thank you again for visiting, and be sure and stop by my blog for detailed information on this technique. 
Happy Crafting,

Thinking of You

Hello! This is Kim. I just received some fun products and had to put them to use. I started by making the background with the Tangrams stencil using Sweet Stamp' Ink Spots. I then used the Field Flower Silhouette's stamp set to stamp the floral image and die cut using a scallop die and popped it onto the card front using 3d tape. The sentiment was heat embossed using white embossing powder and adhered to the card.
