Stained Floss Card

So, I was watching the videos from Papertrey Ink's Stamp-A-Faire, and thought the staining techniques looked fun. I wanted to stain some floss in a bright color, so I decided to use mist instead of tea of kool aid to get a great green color =)



I dyed two pieces of floss, one white floss and one blue floss, with the same green stain made up from green mist and water. I dried them, and then used the technique I showed in this video, to pierce holes using a Papertrey die. I stitched with the one color of dyed floss, and then switched to the second color. I did not back stitch on this one, but instead I used a regular up and down stitch to incorporate both floss colors =)

Jellyfish Thanks Card


Today I'm sharing a card I made to enter into the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge:

I recently got this new Paper Smooches stampset, and I love the look of the jellyfish in it. So, I decided to use that along with some googly eyes to make it extra fun =)

You can watch the video below, or on YouTube


 

Here's a picture of the final card:

PS:  It's always such a hassle to search for and link the Copic Sketch markers with the Inlinkz system. So instead, I'll just list the colors I used here: Y02, Y06, R21, R22, R35 and W4.
Also, I haven't linked the googly eyes in the Inlinkz list, as they were bought from a local store.

Killer Whale Birthday Card

Hi everyone

I have a card to share today, that I made to enter into the current 10 minute Craft Dash challenge. 

The challenge is to make a birthday theme creation, under the 10 minute time limit =) Here's a video I shot while making my card:


  So, all in all the time it took me to create this was 8 minutes and 56 seconds

And here's a picture of my finished card:
