i miss you

Posted by Picasa
 One layer, one layer ....mmmmm....what to do, I struggle with this the most in my crafting, to me this is really hard.  This is what I came up  with for the one layer challenge at Stampotique Designers Challenge.  You may use any stamps in this challenge, but I love Stampotiques stamps.  I made this by stenciling the black checker board over my Stampotique stamp (Relaxin) after I had stamped and masked it, then stenciling the red heart and stamping the saying, it's all one layer, flaaaaat as can be.

Thanks for looking

Back to School

Posted by Picasa

Great news!!  I have been selected to be on the design team for Scrap It Girl!!! 

For  August # Challenge: What’s your #? Use your favorite #s or just random #’s on your project.   
 I thought I would go with the back to school theme. Since it's that time again.   I created a trio to work together to appreciate our teachers out there.  A little lunch sack to place a surprise in , hopefully a good one maybe a cupcake, yum!, a card so my youngest can write a handwritten thank you note on the inside and a little pencil holder filled with pencils for a gift.

I really like the background on the card and the pencil cup which is actually a tomato paste can,  I embossed black cardstock and then brayed over it with white ink, I kinda think it looks like a chalkboard. 
For the card I stamped the image, colored it in, die cut it out added some more die cuts with dsp a button  and apple with some extra numbers. 
On the pencil cup (tomato paste can)  I first put washi tape around the top and bottom then added a layer of gesso and glued down the embossed background paper, stamped and colored the girl again   I popped her on the can with some extra numbers, apples and a tag.  This is the perfect size for a pencil holder.
I stamped the bag with random numbers , die cut the top , added some dsp more die cuts and a tag with twine.  Super easy and quick.
