Easter Greetings

February 10th, 2013

Finally after a very long time, I am starting to create cards again.

I am starting with an Easter card using a one of 3 digital downloads from Crafty Secrets. See Sandy's post here.

This card uses one of the many images you will get with the "Pretty Vintage Easter Eggs" I slimply printed the image, covered it with Sookwang double sided tape and poured some Glitter Ritz Crystal Clear ultra fine glitter and burnished the glitter until it showed a sparkle.


I used paper from Prima's Meadow Lark Collection and matted the image with Beaded Oval die from Spellbinders.

Happy weekend everyone,

Marisa

Playing with Crafty Secrets

Over the past few weeks I have been playing around with some imagers from Sandy's CD3 which is now available for purchase. The images you find in this CD are so crisp and easy to use.

This first project was made using the bird image from the CD which I printed and inseted into a Coaster I purchased at Hobby Lobby.


For this next project, I used several images from the CD and inserted them into Key Chains that I purchased from Michael's.



OK, I will be back with the rest of my projects as they seem to be loading sideways. I though I had fixed this problem but it is back to haunt me.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone.

Marisa

Second attempt at loading the pictures for the rest of my projects. Well it looks like it finally worked and the pictures are not side wards. For this next project I used 4 images to cover up a wooden pencil holder that I purchased at the dollar store.





For my last project I made a Birthday card using the birdies stamp from "Birds of Joy" stamp set.

Bear with me today as I am using a new method of posting to my blog using Windows Live Writer. For some reason every time I use blogger to post the pictures I download get all messed up. So I hope this works better.

Crafty Secrets make is so easy to make cards especially is you are pressed for time with their line of Creative Scraps. Just last year Sandy started to produce the Creative Scraps double sided. There is just so many things you can do with them now.

Floral Art Frame

November 13, 2010

I simply love making stuff with flowers and when Sandy from Crafty Secrets sent me this "Floral Art" stamp set, I immediately new what I wanted to do with it. So here is the frame that I made using one of the 2 floral images from this small stamp set.


I stamped the images several times on white cs, then cut around the picture frame leaving some of the flower shapes to go over the inside border of the frame. The images were then colored with Copic Markers. I stamped the image 2 more times, colored and cut the individual flowers, distressed the edges of the flowers with a distressing tool and then layered it on top of the flowers on the left bottom corner of the frame. The inside and outside edges were distressed with Vintage Photo Distressing ink.


This is the close-up picture of the flowers that were cut and layered. You can see the layers and how it give dimension to the frame.

Little Blessings

September 27, 2010

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and enjoying cooler weather. I can't believe that summer is gone and now the rain is here.

I was able to spend sometime this weekend to work on some projects using the Little Blessings Creative Scraps from Crafty Secrets. I am having so much fun with these double sided sheets.

First picture is a little wall decoration for a little girls room. The sweet image of the little girls is just one of the many images available in this sheet. I used an oval shaped scalloped frame from the Sweet Chips collection of Crafty Secrets. I colored the frame in peach using Copic markers then adhered double sided tape to the front and poured some Mica flakes. I then attached the image to the back of the frame and added another image for the sentiment, some flowers and twigs that were dipped in Flower Soft.


This next picture is a card using another image from the Little Blessings Creative Scraps.

And here is a closer look of the image itself.


As you can see, these are such adorable images and they are so much fun to create with.
Have a great day.

"Crafty Secrets DT Challenge" - September Halloween

September 20, 2010

It's time again for another Crafty Secrets DT Challenge. For this challenge we are featuring the recent Halloween releases of Crafty Secrets. For this challenge I am featuring 2 Halloween Themed cards using The Costume Cuties Clear Art stamps. Once more Sandy has done an amazing job coming up with just the right images to create this stamp set perfect for Halloween.''

My first card is in the shape of a witches hat. I had so much fun creating this card. As you can see from the first picture below, I used the candy corn image to make the candy corn tassel at the bottom of the card. I just simply stamped the candy corn image 26 times, colored them with copic markers, cut them out, glued 2 pieces together and placed black string in between the 2 pieces. I then attached it to the bottom of the hat and added black pearls. After attaching it to the bottom I added some Liquid Embossing to give it some gloss.


If you lift the flap for the top part of the hat you have a sentiment that also comes from the same stamp set - "The Witching Hour"


And for the inside of the card I added some sentiments "Happy Halloween" and "Trick or Treat" witch also come from the same stamp set. The cute little innocent looking witch was stamped, colored with copic markers, cut and adhered with double sided foam. I also added a treat bag with some candies.


This second card is in the shape of a house. Once more I used the stamp images from "The Costume Cuties" and the "Halloween" Clear Arts Stamp sets. Once more is have the cute innocent little witch, then added the face of the moon and a witch flying on a broomstick.


When you open the door to the house you are greeted by a clown and 2 black cats.


Here is what the inside of the card looks like.


I sure hope you enjoyed these 2 cards I prepared for this special Crafty Secrets DT challenge. But that is not all, check out the projects of the rest of the DT members. I am sure that you will find more inspiration from them.

Little Blessings

September 17, 2010

Sandy of Crafty Secrets has come out with more wonderful Creative Scraps. For today I have prepared 2 cards using 2 of the images that are included in the Little Blessings Creative Scraps. These new sheets come double sided and the size of the front image matches exactly the flip side. So if you are planning on creating any double sided projects, this is the perfect thing to use.

This first card uses a sweet image of a little girl praying and the sentiment goes this way "I'm sending you a little prayer that God will keep you in His love and care". Now how sweet is that. I cut the image in an oval and mounted it on top of a black core cs that was die cut using the Beaded Oval Nestability from Spellbinders. The die cut piece was distressed to bring out the green part of the cs. After mounting the piece together I added some Sepia Liquid Embossing and let it completely dry. Once dry, I assembled the card, added ribbon to both sides and the corners that was die cut with one of the pieces in the Lattice Pendant die set. Background designer paper is from the Classic Paper Designs from Crafty Secrets.


Now this next card uses yet another image from this same set. The image was cut and then mounted on a die cut piece using the Lacey Squares die from Spellbinders. I added some glitter using the Clear Star Sakura pen to give a little sparkle to the card. I also traced the sentiment with the Clear Star. To the right of the card I used a Martha Stewart Border punch to make the strip and added some flower brads.


Now here is a sample of one side of the Little Blessings Creative Scraps. As you can see there are so many cute images to use.

On Monday the Crafty Secrets Design Team will be featuring some samples using new products that have been recently released. o don't forget to mark your calendars and come back to see what everyone has prepared for you.

Have a great weekend.
