Itty Bitty Bats!!! ....


I recently hosted an "Itty Bitty" swap for my FSJ downline.

What are Itty Bittys you say???
Well it's similar to Card Candy ... 
handmade elements that are ready to add 
to a card, scrapbook page, or other project.

I had been wanting to play with these bats for a while 
and with Halloween coming up I pulled them out!!!

I love them!!!

Look at the dimension that I made them ... 
popping up their heads, glazing their eyes, or adding googlie eyes.


I can't wait to turn this into a card!

ENJOY!!!!

Praying for You ....



The picture of this card does not do it justice.
So much yumminess on this vine.

It actually started out blue ...
Dipped it in Liquid Color and Silk on a Gel Press.


Here 's the close up .....

After I added all of the color then I heat set.
It got stiffer and curled up.

I absolutely LOVE this!!!

Rediform Revisited ....


Do you remember how to do the Rediform Technique?

The easiest way is to grab a Post-It note pad and 
add Post-Its to section off your cardstock.
Use a sponge or dauber to add color and block off the sections.

For this card I used one of my new favorite FSJ stamp sets ...
Chosen Family

I used Beach Ball, Limeade Splash, and Lavender Fusion inks.

Beach Ball
Limeade Splash
Lavender Fusion

I love how happy this card makes me.

Try doing a rediform card today and if you do post a link in the comments ...
I would love to see what you create!!!!

ENJOY!!!!

Rocks and Wood ...


I love creating little projects that you can finish in 15-20 minutes.

These are no exception to that!!!!

I collected rocks over by Lake Michigan a few weeks ago 
searching for the flatest of flat rocks.
I also had a few wood discs left from another project.

I stamped these with the flowers and sentiments.

See the white dots around the edge?
A trick to get those nice and repeatable ...
use your BLOOM TOOL!
The stylus head dipped in paint makes the PERFECT dots!!
I added our acrylic paint and turned these into beautiful
little pieces of art.

A trend right now is to paint the rocks and hide them out for 
others to find and spread kindness.

I found a fun video on rock painting below.
I hope this inspires you to spread a little kindness ... we all need kindness right now!


ENJOY!!!!

Hello Love ....


I had watched a video about stacking die cuts on top of each other for depth and dimension.

So these hearts in the lower right are all different thicknesses. 
(not sure that you can tell from the picture)

I really like how this turned out though.

Still very clean and simple!

ENJOY!!!

Fun with Pan Pastels ....


I had been watching a video that RG did where he "erased the Pan Pastel"
Brilliant .... I just needed an eraser.

The next day while back-to-school shopping with Chase,
I picked up some erasers ....

VOILA!!!

I love the look ... stamp, add Pan Pastels, blend with Colorless Blender,
and erase what you'd like with a white eraser ... LOVE!!!

ENJOY!!!!

Paris in the Summer ....


When I think Paris, I think the Sumer of 1990.
I had a fabulous summer that year that included Paris.

I was at the top of the Eiffel tower and though ok ... I've now lived!!!
Check that off the bucket list.

This general card just makes me smile.

ENJOY!!!
