Thank you to everyone who joined me for Friday night’s CCWM show. I swear I am getting quicker! Three cards in about 2.5hours – well that’s quicker than normal!
If you are new here, let me tell you about Come Craft With Me. Every Friday, I (virtually) open the doors of my craft room, and invite you all to watch onward as I get crafty. It’s a LIVE stream, hosted on my YouTube channel, where I interact with viewers, create a few projects and have a good old giggle. Please subscribe to my YouTube and turn on your notifications so you never miss a show.
Let’s take a look at what I made! Not one, not two but THREE cards! First off, I was playing with my Picket Fence distress ink on kraft cardstock to make this fun background.
It’s a simple design, but I love how it turned out. The owl is from MFTstamps Forest Friends and the tree is from Mama Elephant Sunday Strolls stamp set. I also stamped the owl onto white card and coloured him in with some light coloured copic markers. The branch is from an older Hero Arts set – I think it was the perfect addition.
I grabbed my googly eyes – always a source of contention in my experience – but pretty much all the viewers seemed on board with adding a little whimsy to this cute critter. BUT big eyes, or little eyes!? That was the question. In the end, I outsourced my decision making to a viewer – and Nancy picked the larger eyes – Good choice, crafty friend!
Next up I wanted to use the FREE DIGITAL STAMP that Heffy Doodle was offering on their blog to celebrate World Card Making Day. We had some issues here, as I first tried to use my zig clean color real brush markers, but I am still such a noob with these – I had to get Craig to print another version for me – but it all worked out in the end!
I added a little ink blending to this card – spun sugar, picked raspberry & festive berries – and then used the Wishing and Sending stamp set from SSS. The perfect little greeting for this card!
By the way, if you make a project with the Heffy Doodle FREE DIGI STAMP, remember to use the tag HEFFYDOODLEWCMD when you share your projects – you would win a stamp and die set! More details over on the Heffy Doodle blog.
For my third card, i wanted to get smoochy! INK SMOOCHING of course! I was inspired by the letter box in the digi stamp to use these envelope stamps to create a resist background on this card. I used a paper smooches thanks die with some pink craft foam for a nice textured greeting.
