PWCO project - stamp on fabric

Good morning to you all!! I can't wait to share with you something fun I made. This fun project is my first time trying using Harriet the Hippo from the PWCO Safari Friends Collection.

I always wanted to try stamping on cloth, so I bought this little Gerber newborn baby shirt to try out. First, I lay a piece of cardstock in between the front and back, so it my coloring wouldn't got through between layers. I stamped the image with Memento Ink, then colored it with CopicMarkers. Since I had so much fun trying it out, after colored the image, I even drew some flowers. Sorry, but just got a little carry away and couldn't stop coloring :o)

I am also using my project for the following challenges:
Crafty Creations Challenge #77 - Happy or Sweet
Mami Doodles Challenge #7 - Anything Goes
The Stamp Man Challenge # 1 -Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge #62 - Baby/Child
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Cutie Patootie

Here is a closer view on this image coloring

After I finished, I wrapped it like a little piece of candy. I thought this will make a great gift for a little baby!!

Since this is my first try, I will try some more next time using the StazOn ink to see what happened after wash. Thank you for coming by today and see you soon!!

Wedding Gift Envelope for my friend's wedding

Happy Friday, YEAH....TGIF!!!
Also, today is my friends Clara & Ken's wedding day. Today's post is an envelope I made for putting wedding gift for them. I will be busy today (working for 1/2 day & attending wedding after). It's going to be a rush day for me, so please don't be surprise if you didn't see me visiting your blog, that is why. I also wanted to thank Regina for the idea. Thank you so much Regina :o) Also CONGRATULATIONS TO CLARA & KEN for starting another chapter of their lives!

Ok, here is the envelope I made last night with Magnolia's Bride & Groom.

I made a little insert and used ribbon to hold $$$.

Closer view on the flowers embellies. I sprayed Glimmer mist on these flowers. If you see them in person, they will look more sparkle, but didn't show that on these pictures though.

Here is a lay flat view so you can see the dimension of this envelope.

YNSC #21 - Easel Card

Good morning and happy mid-week. Yes, sorry to say but is only Wednesday. Weekend is still a few more days away, but at least is something to look forward. Before I go on, I would like to thank my blogging friend LINDA who sent me all sort of goodies earlier and the blue ruffle you see on my card today is the 'Hug Snug Seam Binding' Linda sent me. THANK YOU LINDA!! It was white and I sprayed it with the BG05 Copic Marker and wrinkled it. Then I sewn a gathering stitch to gather it into a ruffle trim. It really was fun making it into a ruffle trim!

Sweet November Fathom Calmsea Bag in a box

Good morning everyone. Instead of posting a card today, I would like to post some pictures on the bag in a box I made with another cute mermaid image I received from Deb's Creations in Australia. This Fathom Calmsea stamp set came with a mermaid and the lil seahorse. She is from the Sweet November Mermaids Collections. I even made a little charm with this lil seahorse with shrink dink plastic.

It's so much fun playing with the shrink dink plastic. They are so easy and so fun to use. I didn't put it in my oven, but instead just use my heat gun to heat it until it shrunk.

I am using this altered project for the following challenges:
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #41 - Anything but a card
Daring Cardmakers - Sea related theme
Creatalicious Challenge #12 - 3D project
For Fun Challenge - Favorite coloring (Copic Markers)

Closer view on this lovely mermaid image

This is the seahorse that came with the stamp set.

with the same seahorse image, I made a little charm with Shrink Dink Plastic

I hope you like what I prepared for you and thank you for stopping by today. See you soon :o)

Kraftin Kimmie Card - Cordelia Mermaid

Good morning all and sorry it's not the weekend yet, but don't worry as it's only 2 more days. Yes, I am counting the days and looking forward for that.

I would like to share with you a card today with a new stamp I received from Deb's Creations. This stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie Mermaid Collection (KKS Mermaid) called "Cordelia". I colored it as soon as I got a free moment at home. Not sure why, maybe it's because the Little Mermaid was my daughter's favorite Disney movies when she was little and I watched it 4 or 5 times every week with her (she never get tired watching the same movies), that is probably why I especially like mermaid images. Just can't wait to use it. I also added a little undersea scene with some Jolee's embellishment.

Here is my finished card with this image, isn't she darling? I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #67 - Mermaid
Wild Orchid Challenge Week 1 - Say it with Flowers
Ann's Creative Nook GCA #96 - Anything Goes
Drunken Stampers #24 - Water
Scrap it with a Song Week #13 - So Happy Together

Closer view on this image

See this little fish, this also comes with this stamp set. Can't use without it as Cordelia needs a friend form company!

Thank you so much for coming by today and hope you will come again next time.
