Summer Mini Album using CCC June Premium Membership

Hey there Crafty Creeps!

Celia from Paper Beats Rock Designs up today with a fun project share using Creepy Cute Chronicles June Premium Membership stamp Hello Summer.

I found a simple shell design at, printed it out and used it as a template for my pages and album cover. I meticulously cut out the inside of the shell to create and cut file like shape for the cover. I machines stitched along the edges of each piece to make sure they weren't going anywhere and give the cover added texture and reinforce the shell shape as I planned to put fussy cut stamped images on top.
I grabbed a chipboard anchor from my stash and dabbed on dark, light, and metallic blue onto it with my finger. After letting that layer dry, I came back with a gold-black and glitter paint on top. While those last layers dried, I coloured up the Hello Summer stamp elements and fussy cut them out. 
Once everything was ready I hot glued some tulle and gauze the the bottom left and top right of the album cover. I grabbed a camera from my stash and the anchor and tucked flowers around them both. 

Then I added my Skull-ocolada and three different types of Thickers to create my title. The word "sweet" was actually white and blended in too much, so I grabbed some acrylic paint, watered it down a little, applied it, and then dabbed it off with a paper towel while it was still wet. I ripped a small piece of scrap paper and layered it behind the word DAZE so it would stand out a little better and voila! Cover Finished!

I can't  wait to fill this little book with Summer Memories and countdown to Spooky Season! Only 148 days until Halloween, so make sure you're signed up for the Creepy Cute Chronicles and the Premium Membership to get your weekly dose of the heebie-jeebies sent right to your email along with inspiration from other crafters and those awesome Monthly Exclusives! 

Curiousity was here!


Today I bring you the tutorial of this super fast and easy to make card, where the leading role is taken by this week's freebie: CCC 108 Beware of danger

On this occasion I have chosen to accompany my card one of the papers from the “Pick Your Poison” collection and a freebie that came out several months ago, the CCC 58 Cutest Lil Heart.

The card is very simple and quick to make.

Once all the stamps and cutouts were colored, I took the blue paper with the pile of skulls from the Oddball “Pick Your Poison” collection and with a precision cutter I cut the drawing of the pile of skulls from the top (as if it were an envelope).

Then I assembled my card. I inserted the headstone with the CCC 58 Cutest Lil Heart bunnies into the cut made. I double-taped the skulls and flowers belonging to the Beware of Danger set to the front, and the climbing bunnies to the side of the resulting drawing.

I cut the card to size and glued it onto a colored cardboard base.
To finish, I framed the feeling of the set with the same colored cardboard as the base and pasted it in place.

This is the result.

I hope you like it, I encourage you to make your own creations and share them with the hashtag #creepycutechronicles

Remember that the freebie lasts for a week, after this you will have access to a new one, but the old ones can only be accessed as Premium subscribers (with all the advantages that this entails). And that you have the discount code DTIRENE10 for your purchases in the Oddball store, including any of the collections of papers with its own designs that it has.

See you!

Quick Summer Shaker Card

Hello everyone!

Eny here, and today I wanted to share with you a quick way to make shaker cards. I love creating shaker projects, but they tend to be laborious and use up A LOT of material. A few years back I watched a video from a YouTuber called Nurse Tara, where she created several of these in a matter of minutes. I was immediately hooked, and ever since, I use this more often than not, as my go-to way of making shaker elements. 

Firt, we decide what image we want to use. Today i will be coloring up OddBall Art IMG#155

Digital Stamp Big Eye Fairy Girl & Friend Sally & Charlie 

I used ArtNFly Alcohol Sketch Markers. I have been using these for about 2 months now, and I am in love! They are refillable, affordable and so fun to use.

To add detail, i created a pool border, with a very cool gray, and then used a darker shade to create the the "Stone" accents.

Make sure to blend your colors good, to create a shading effect.

I colored the pool a bright turquoise, with intense green accents, to really help the images "pop out" of the page.

Using the "blender" marker, i lay down a series of dots over the "water". This create a really effect, making it look like bubbles are filling the pool.

Now starts the really easy part of this whole project. Using a self sealing, the ones they sell at jewelry or baking stores (also available at many craft chain stores), I will be making my shaker element. I trim down my full card cover so it will fit inside the bag.

I place the paper inside the bag, making sure the image is facing the opposite direction of where the adhesive is on the bag. Fill the bag with your favorite shaker mix. Not too much though, we want the pieces to be able to move freely within the bag.

Remove the backing to expose the adhesive, and seal tight.

Your shaker cover is ready! You can now add to a card base, and add extra details like trim or a sentiment.

You can see a mini video of the shaker in action, by visiting my Instagram.

I hope you enjoyed today's quick pictorial, and that you try it out!

Road trip

Flower power hippy van
Hi there! Did you catch my last post about Spring?  What says the snow is gone and Spring is here, more then a road trip!   I have this secret desire to own a Volkswagen Van, and to drive off into the sunset.....well the van part it true!  This picture is the companion to The Spring picture in my altered journal it’s a digital image from Oddballartstamps (Flower power Hippy van). The background is acrylic painted scrapped randomly across a gessoed page.  I used washie tape to create a funky road and stamped on stars and a US map (stampers anonymous).  The gray exhaust flowers are acrylic paint through a stencil (brand unknown).  Sentiment was from a Recollection paper pad.
If a road trip isn’t in the cards right now you could use my code CHR1 for a free image Oddballartstamps when you buy two.
