Hooray, It’s Your Birthday!

I love Stamping Bella stamps. I loved the old style Bellas, but I ADORE the new style! So I was happy, happy, happy when I finally got my ink stained fingers ahold of one!

I made this card for a good friend’s birthday, but it happened to fit two challenges this month, so yay! I’m entering this card in Stamping Bella’s Bellarific Friday and Markerpop’s “For the Girls” challenge.

Thanks so much for visiting me today!

SBC DT Project:Notecard with Crimped Envelope

I wish I could remember where I first saw how to make the crimped envelopes so I could give the proper credit, but it’s been years ago. I do love the look though, and I am falling in love with layered stamps.

The white notecard is 4in. by 4.5in. NOT 4.25in. Thank you so much for taking the time to visit me today and I hope you’ll check out the video on step by step instructions on how to make this cute card and envelope!

No Pink!!

My brother and his wife are expecting their first baby (a girl!) in October. I have many titles, but aunt isn’t one of them. I’m very excited to meet the little person who will finally give me that title. 😊

My brother and his wife both despise the color pink. Pink is one of my very favorite colors, so it was a real challenge for me to make a “baby girl” card and not include a ton of pink. I used several Unity stamps. The mother and baby image, the sentiment, and the background hearts are all Unity stamps. The little hearts around the sentiment (and the little pink I sneaked) are from the Lawn Fawn Boo-ya stamp set.

Foxy Love and a Coupon Code

imageIs this image not the cutest? I colored it with Spectrum Noir markers and then added the hat and veil. I also added a ton of wink of Stella to give it lots of sparkle.

I got this image from Jess Crafts and she was kind enough to share a coupon code, which will be at the bottom of this post.  You can find the image here:

Steampunk Fairy

Sherri Baldy’s images are just too stinkin’ cute! I’m usually a girly girl who loves cutsie critters. I refer to steampunk as my “guilty crafty pleasure” because it is so different from the girly, cutsie style I usually gravitate towards. Well, most of the time it’s different, unless you have someone like me who decides to combine the two.

I used one of Sherri’s digital images called Steampunk Fairy (img103) and colored her with my colored pencils.

Foxy Birthday Card

I’m not an organized person. I will never be an organized person. My craft room testifies to that fact. It looked like a disaster area. I thought about taking a picture, just to prove how chaotic it was, but was too mortified.

I’ve tried several times to “clean it up,” but within the first hour or two became overwhelmed, so I would just shut the door and save it for another day. But it was getting to me. Stifling my creativity. Saturday I decided that I was going to accomplish something, so I decided to tackle my craft table. I was just going to clean off my craft table.

I did. And that seemed to give me the boost I needed. I worked ALL DAY on my room. Cleaning. Purging. Getting things out of bags and boxes onto shelves and into drawers where they belong. It’s not done, but it’s soooo much better. Saturday night my three year old walked into the room, threw his hands in the air, and exclaimed, “Oh wow! I can’t believe this!”

It did the trick. I want to spend every spare minute I can in there creating. I’ve even been getting up earlier than my kiddos so I can have some alone time to create. In the early morning hours, before little people awake demanding my full attention (I wouldn’t have it any other way), I created this card.

This card is in response to three challenges currently taking place in the YouTube crafting community:

Friendship Card

Hello Everyone!

The Greeting Farm (whose images I absolutely looovvveee) is having a “friendship” challenge this month. I love challenges because I sometimes find myself in a creative rut. I find having a starting point, such as a theme, really helps get me motivated. I made this cute card using TGF Fun Anya stamp.

This was also my design team project for SBC (http://www.scrapbookblessingsclub.com/?m=1) , so it was two birds with one stone, so to speak. 😉

You can find the process video of how I made this card here:

You Rocket

If there are two things I love, it’s galaxy backgrounds and shaker cards. So I had a lot of fun combining the two. For this card I created a galaxy background using distress inks, white paint, and shimmer mists. The stamp set is called You Rocket from Pink and Main and the dies are the wonky stitched rectangle dies from Avery Elle. Thanks for stopping by! image

Hello!

Hello Everyone!

My name is Heather! I’m a stay-at-home mom and wife. I have a three-year-old boy and one-year-old girl. Although I absolutely LOVE my job, I do occasionally need a break from the diapers, tantrums, and endless episodes of Cookie Monster. Thank goodness I have my craft room to catch a few moments of “me” time, however fleeting they may be. 😊

When I was 11, my aunt gave me a scrapbooking kit for Christmas. Thus, my love of paper crafting was born. When I discovered stamping and card making, I was really hooked. Pocket letters have become my newest obsession and I would like to share my most recent one.

I absolutely love to color, and when I saw these little Alice in Wonderland themed girls from The Greeting Farm, I knew I just had to make a pocket letter! I also added a Julie Nutting Prima doll, colored up to resemble Alice. I kept it simple because I felt a lot of embellishments would distract from the coloring. Fun fact: The “skin” of the Julie Nutting doll is stamped on a page from the book Alice in Wonderland.

Thank you so much for checking out my little corner of the blogoverse. I also enjoy making crafty YouTube videos. My channel is Heather C. Crafts, if you would like to check it out, as well. 😊
