August SOTM blog hop - Wicked

Welcome the the SOTM blog hop for Aug. You should have come from Lisa Schaefer's blog . Next in the hop is Diana Soling's blog. There are over 60 consultants in this months blog hop. The stamp set is name Wicked and a cute Halloween stamp set.
My first project i kept with the Halloween theme. I used colors from our new Mischief paper packet. I used remarkable wreath(new), and stamped it twice, slightly twisting so it would be a fuller wreath. I embossed the cat in black. I used our milepost shapes (new). I inked it black and used it behind the main image. I stamp the sentiment and cut it out with spellbinder die. i didn't have my cricut cartridge yet.
On this project, I wanted to show you that you can use this stamp set with the Halloween theme. I made this for my hostess, she does passion parties and her group name is buzzing bee-uties. So i went with the bee theme. the honeycomb makes a great background stamp for any theme. I used the cork letters (new) to spell out her name and used sunflower ink to change their color.

(sorry about the blurry image. not sure why it is)

Here is the closeup of the girl. yes, this is the same image as the girl on the wicked stamp. I did some masking and cutting and paper piecing to make her look less witchy. Masked the bird and part of the dress, changed the hat and the boots, and now you just have a sexy gi

I hope you enjoyed this look into our new sotm. You can get this stamp set or $5 when you have a purchase of $50 or more. Plus CTMH has an extra, extra going on. To celebrate the new price for the SOTM, when you purchase Wicked, you get a free a size alphabet, typeface. How awsome is that?

July Blog hop - Kraft borders

Welcome to this months blog hop. You should be coming from Haley's Blog. Like always, I am the last in the hop. But you can go to the begining at Wendy's Blog

This month we are showcasing our Kraft Borders. I used two different ones on my card. The first one if the very glittery one in the center. These borders are adhesive, so it made adding glitter a breeze. Yes, this is meant to be the back, but why not take advantage of the glue. Doing this tho reminds me why i don't use glitter. It gets everywhere. and it multiplies. i dont know how it does it. you have one spec of glitter on you, you dont touch any more. and when you leave the craft room, you are covered. I read once that glitter is the herpes of the crafting world and its true.

I just thought i lost all my typing. For some reason it deleted all i typed. Thankfully it autosaved and i caught it before it autosaved again. My computer has been pissing me off today.

Ok, back to the card. The second border are on both sides. It comes in the kraft color but can easily be colored. Now it is a different color then when you color on white. I used the the same purple on this card, but the borders are darker.

These colors are inspired by an ad i found in my interior design mag.
Next on the hop isWendy's blog

Mojo 198 and a sneak peak

I actaully did a mojo monday again. its been awhile. i've wanted to do them, i looked at the sketches. But nothing. I finally did it tho. This is also a sneak peak to one of my swap cards for convention this week. WOOOO. Wed i leave, after i get an mri done.

I used , what did i use? don't you hate when that happens. Fanfare i think. total brain fart. I used my punch to make the 3d balloon. the basket, its the bottom of the cupcake from the wotg stamp from fanfare. I really need to make sure this is right. Yes, fanfare. I am way to young to have these sort of memories farts. The stamp in the bottom, its kinda hard to see, but it says 'chase the clouds'. Normally i would have used post it and masked it off, but since this was for a swap and i made 25, i cut the stamp. Its from card chatter - sympathy. The whole stamp say 'and chase the clouds away'. It was easy to cut the stamp apart and i can use it whole if i want to.

i'll be postingthe deets once i go back into my craft room. my memory isn't good enough to fill it out now.
