Swinging By

Hi everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and I have a card to share.
I used the Audrina-Swinging By stamp to create my card.



I started this card with a standard A2 card base and created the grass by adding texture paste to the Chainmail Stencil. I then ink blended the green over the texture and the blue for the sky.
I stamped and colored Audrina with Copic markers and stamped her sentiment onto the background.
I added the tree limb cut from the Twig Frame Builder Die and the leaves from the Woodland Dies.
To finish, I pop dotted her to the card, lining up the rope over the limb.

I hope you all liked my card for today and thanks for visiting!

You are Super!!

Hello my crafty friends!!  Nicole here today to share some Stamp Anniething inspiration with you!!
I pulled out the "Save The Day" Grab and Go Box and created a masculine themed card that would work perfectly for this month's Stamp Anniething theme challenge!!  This card is a bit larger than an A2 card.  The final measurements were 4.75" x 6".  I had so much fun playing around with the stencil and creating scenes for the windows.  Everything I used is from that box except for my solid  cardstock.  


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Bokeh Technique Background

Hi everyone! This is GiGi from The Cricut Bug and it's my day to post a Technique Tuesday.
I have a tutorial to share of how I created the background of my card using the Bokeh Technique.





I started with a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2 inch piece of white cardstock.
I used the Stamp AnnieThing Inks in Caribbean Blue, Heather, and Shocking Pink to ink blend the background.




After the background was ink blended I used the Bubble Stencil, dabbing on white Acrylic paint with a sponge.


After it was dry, I rotated the stencil to the opposite side and did this process again. This gave the bubbles a layered, pixelated look.
I cut out the background using a scallop rectangle mat along with a strip of white for the sentiment.
I stamped and colored Sofia and her bubbles using Copic Markers and mounted her on pop dots.



I hope you all liked my project for today and thanks for visiting!
Have a great day!

Fishing Father's Day Card

Happy Thursday my crafty friends!!  I have a masculine themed card to share with you today as a part of this week's theme challenge with Stamp Anniething.  Each month there is a new challenge with a "theme" and June's theme is "masculine card or project".  One week a month the Stamp Anniething Design Team creates a few projects to go along with the challenge theme.


I figured I would double up and use this as a Father's Day card!!
Here is what I came up with -


I started off by stamping and coloirng my image from "Stephen - You Are Reely Awesome".  I then masked it off and did some ink blending and for my water I used the "Wave Edge Stencil".  I cut out that layer with the rectangle from "Shaker Basics Set 1".  I also added another layer of solid cardstock cut with the "Shaker Basics Set #1" and added the letters D A D using some stamps and dies from the "It's a Little Strange" Grab and Go Box.

Here's how to play along with the Monthly Challenge - 


- Create a new project using the above sketch with Stamp Anniething products

-Share your creation at Our Facebook Group HERE by July 3, 2020.

a Fun Little Challenge during this "social distancing" time!

HI everyone! Annie here! 
During this social distancing time, I was able to play around and push myself a smidge with some things I have never tried before. Mainly, GLASS!

A few of the DT and I teamed up with Jennifer Dove and Barbara Sproatmeyer to do a collab of a combo of an Whimsy Stamps image and a Stamp Anniething Image.  We just had to make water a part of our project and let our imagination go wild!   And boy did we ever!

Needless to say, when I first heard of the challenge, my imagination got the best of me and I bit off more than I could chew.  In my head, I had the MOST fabulous scene created.... Our Kelsey Fairy, sitting on the little Mason jar filled with fireflies overlooking a gorgeous enchanted waterfall.  Being my first time attempting many of these elements (water fall, glass, fire flies).... I did not execute it AT ALL as I pictured it.  So... scrapped that idea (but you can see it below).. and tried another, less full scene project. 




That brought me to Julie, Ahoy Matey standing in FRONT of the BIG mason jar stamp with her buried pirate treasure in the sea.  Ok I admit, I love the scene in the glass jar, but as you can see.... I was still learning how to do the glass effect.  Definitely a step up from the Fairy image!



So now I was on a roll and enjoying trying this glass effect out... so I went to a third project!  I took Madison and put her IN the Jar, as if she was in a pool of water.  I tried to do some reflective water on the bottom of the jar as the light would hit in the pool.



As you can see, Im still learning myself on new techniques and things to try in the Copic and coloring world!  I had fun, and I definitely saw an improvement in my technique the more I did the jars.  Just goes to show you, practice does indeed heed improvement.!  It will be a REALLY fun idea for me to come back to this in a year or so and do my Fairy scene again and see how much I've improved from this year to that! 

Hop on over to the other challengers blogs to see their wonderful creations!
