Butterfly Card Using BIC Mark-It Markers

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I am here today to show you a card I made with a butterfly stamp and the BIC Mark-It Markers.  Here is my finished card!

 The butterfly is from Stampin Up called Stipple Butterfly.  I stamped it with Stazon black ink on white cardstock twice.  I used 4 BIC mark it markers for this butterfly.  I colored the butterflies with 2 shades of blue and went over it with light yellow to give it detail.   Some of the yellow turned green and it looks amazing!
 One of the butterflies I cut out and placed on top of the other to make it 3-D.
Here is the stamp and markers I used for this project!

Halloween Card using Inkadinkado Stamping Gear

Hi Everyone!  I picked up the Inkadinkado Stamping Gear Deluxe Kit over the weekend at ACMoore.  I used my 55% off coupon and couldn't resist buying it.  I must say I LOVE it.  It is really amazing what you can create with one stamp.   I was playing with it and LOVED the way this turned out so I made it into a Halloween card.   I used ONE stamp and 3 different colors to achieve this fabulous look.  Colors I used were:  Memento Tuxedo Black ink, Stampin Up Orchid Opulence, and Stampin Up Only Orange.  The sentiment is from Studio G.

 Here is the stamp I used along with the circle cog.
 Using the same stamp and circle cog, I used only 2 colors for this sample and stamped Happy Halloween from Hero Arts in the center. 
This product is FABULOUS and you may want to give it a try.  I cannot wait to make more projects with this Stamping Gear!!

Thanks for stopping by and happy crafting!

Altered Journal for Teacher for Back to School

Hi Everyone!!  Sorry for the lack of posts lately.  I have been busy with back to school stuff and sports!!  Now that my kids are going back to school, I will be posting more regularly. 

I have a project for you today that my child will be giving the teacher the first day of school.  I will also be entering this project in several challenges (see bottom of post).

I purchased this small journal yesterday at ACMoore for $1.00.

All cuts are from Cricut cartridges (see bottom of post).  I used my ATG gun and a glue pen to adhere all the cuts down. 
 The sentiment "My Teacher Rocks" is from My Creative Time.  The adorable face is from Peachy Keen Critter Faces Medium.  I applied Glossy Accents to the glasses to make them look glossy.   I also used my white gel pen to add white dots to the teachers name and apple.
 I also covered the pen with red and white twine.   And tied a bow with the same twine.  I used my ATG gun to adhere the twine to the pen.

I am so happy with how this turned out.  You know I have seen this apple and worm so many time and this is the first time I have cut it out!  I really need to use my carts more!! LOL

Cricut Cartridges:

  Recess - Apple
  Create A Critter - Worm
  Sesame Street Font - Sunny Days Font

I am entering this in the following challenges:
  Peachy Keen - Anything Goes
  Really Reasonable Ribbon- Back To School
  Fantabulous Cricut Crawl- Back to school (use school supplies)

Thanks so much for stopping by and Happy Crafting!!
