Chirp - Your Next Stamp Friday Fun Project

Happy Good Friday everyone!

Today is another Friday Fun Project at YNS!  I used an adorable digi called Chirp to be used on a tag for a teachers gift.

The best thing about digi's is that you are able to size the image to whatever your needs are to the project.  For this, I sized Chirp to tag size and colored him up with Copics.  I placed some chocolate eggs in the jar and added some fabric to the top and some twine to be wrapped around.  I then used an eyelet for the top of the tag for it to be strung through and using a mini clothespin, clipped the tag to the front.  Here is a closer look of the tag:

A Little Mixed Media with Veneer

Hello everyone!!
I know it has been uber quiet around here lately! With our house on the market getting ready to move this summer, we have been busy with preparing the home and every once and in a while, we are kicked out for a few hours too! :) I am doing my best to stay afloat and keep creating! I sure miss it on a daily basis.

Today, I have a card to share with you that I submitted for publication but unfortunately, was rejected.  I also gave a sneak peek on the Party Time Tuesday blog today.  I had a lot of fun creating this.  Masking, veneer, and colored sprays are all the rage and I jumped on board.  Speaking of colored sprays...  no need to spend a ton of money on these sprays when you can make your own with some inexpensive acrylic paint, water, some twinkling H2O if you want sparkle, and a mini spray bottle.  Just mixed enough paint with some water until you achieve the color depth you want. 

I used a mask from Crafters Workshop of chicken wire and used some washi tape to hold it in place to where I wanted it.  Then I used my watered down acrylic paint to spray the blue in the areas I wanted it. TIP: I found that masking on a larger panel for your card is easier and then you can cut it to size.  With the mask still in place, I sponged in some other colors where I wanted additional depth. My veneers were of chevrons and I used some Glossy Accents to adhere the wood to the panel pointing down to the sentiment.  The sentiment was cut using my Silhouette Cameo and dotted with more glossy accents to glue it into place.  The card was finished out with some rhinestones and popped up over the card base.

I hope you are a little inspired to get "mixed up" with some mixed media! Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous Thursday! Be sure to check Party Time Tuesdays Your Daily Dose out!  It's all about dies! Link up for your chance to win!

Chirpy - Your Next Stamp Friday Fun Project


It's the end of the week blogger friends! Yay!! I hope you all had a good one and now ready to enjoy some weekend time.

Today is another Friday Fun Project over at Your Next Stamp, and I am using the new digi release of Chirpy.  Goodness! Isn't he just adorable? Just makes me want to hug him, squeeze him, and call him George... :)

The image was colored in with Copics and the patterned paper is from MME The Sweetest Thing.  I used my score board and my Tonic piercing roller for the edge of the image layer before popping it up.  The card was finished with a few pieces of washi tape and some self adhesive pearls and rhinestones.  I do like how this turned out in a CAS way with that patterned paper! :)

Be sure to stop by and take a peek at the other fun projects members of the DT have created! Thanks so much for stopping by today and enjoy your Friday!

Welcome to the April YNS Digital New Release!

We'll be giving away 5 digi stamps from the stops on the hop, so be sure to leave comments along the way for your chance to WIN!!!!
 Winners will be announced on April 4th on the YNS Blog.
For my card, I am using the ever so cute new release of Tweet Family.  Aren't they so sweet?! The doting, loving parents overseeing their babies... :)

I printed the image on some Neenah cardstock and colored it in with Copics.  I used my nesties circle dot scallop die to cut out the image, and while it was still in the die, I sponged lightly around it.  The patterned paper is Cosmo Crickets' Tea Room which I layered over some SU! cardstock in Pretty in Pink.  The image is popped up over the ribbon treatment that is some crinkled satin and finished with a purple paper flower in the center of the bow. 

There is an awesome deal going on right now at YNS that you do not want to miss!
