On the Lookout with Colorado Craft Company

Hello and welcome!
Yesterday I spent the day crafting at a monthly crafty crop that I attend with a friend, it's about an hour from where I live.  This time I was playing with a new to me stamp set called "On the Lookout" from Colorado Craft Company.  Here's another look at my first card:


So for this first card, even though this stamp set is meant for Christmas, I turned it into an everyday card by using the main image from the stamp set and then covered the Santa hat on the sofa with a shortened version of one of the sentiments.


I don't have the matching die so I fussy cut it out and colored it with alcohol markers and colored pencils.  For the background I used a piece of patterned paper that looked like wall shiplap to simulate the wall behind the image and then matted the partial sentiment on a black mat.  (The image and sentiments for both cards were stamped in black and heat embossed them in clear.)

After the card was assembled I added pastel and clear jewel gems from Memory Box to finish the card.


Now here's a look at my 2nd card, which I did make as a Christmas card:


The background patterned paper in red with snowflakes from Scrapbook.com and matted on black.


The image was colored with the same markers and pencils and fussy cut.  The sentiment was heat embossed in white on black card stock then trimmed into a banner.


After popping the image up on foam tape, I added a few snowflake sequins to the sentiment banner, then popped it up on foam tape too.


I hope you enjoyed my cards for today.  I had so much fun creating at the crafty day with this new stamp set.  I just had to get it because my dog Zoe spends most days doing this exact thing - looking out the front room window.  Here's a little picture of her on her daily lookout:

Fuzzy Santa & Penguin Holiday Tags with Woodware Stamps

Hello and welcome!

Here's a short post today sharing 2 tags made with the latest Woodware Stamps release from Creative Expressions.

I used 2 new mini sets called "Woodware Clear Singles Festive Fuzzies - Mini Santa" and their "Mini Penguin" set as well.

I stamped them and added them to a partially cut circle die to make a top folding gift tag!
So quick and easy, because there's already a circle as part of the stamp around these adorable critters!

I colored them with Zigs and colored pencils!

Just Us Girls Challenge #594


Hello and welcome!  There's a brand new photo challenge this week at Just Us Girls, hosted by Nancy and here's what she chose:


Here's a closer look at the photo:


For my card I used newly released stamp sets from Memory Box's 2021 Summer Dreams release.
The anchor is a stamp with matching die, stamped in Hero Arts Navy ink.  I also used that navy ink for the background and behind the heat embossed sentiment.  Here's a closer look at the card:


The stripes were made with the Memory Box "Jumbled Line Collage" die and I backed the opening with red paper from Memory Box's "Berry Red" card stock pack.

Lastly I added some clear water droplet gems.


I hope you will have time to participate this week.  Be sure to stop by the JUGS blog to see what our amazing July guest Chrissie Stokes, and the whole team have made to inspire you!

Thanks for stopping by!
