Makers Gonna Make

 

Welcome back crafty friends and happy Sunday! I hope you're all doing well and having a nice time and perhaps having some inky fingers too!

Today, I am back to share another Project Inspiration using CCC#135 Makers Gonna Make Digi Stamp. I had so much fun creating this card and most of all coloring those little pencils. This Digi Stamps is so fun and I believe you will have fun creating different things as well like tags, scrapbook layout, journals and most of cards to give away.



For this card, I couldn't pick just one color to make the pencil so I decided to go for a color pencil vibe. Aren't they so cute? I printed this cute pencils on a White Cardstock from Cardstockwarehouse and started coloring them one at a time. 



To color this pencils, you can either use colored pencils, watercolor, alcohol markers or any medium of your choice. But for me, I used my favorite go to Arteza EverBlend Markers. As you can see, they are super vibrant and in person it looks like a real color pencils. After coloring each pencils, it's time to have some fun! I love fussy cutting and this one is super easy to cut. Then, when I'm done cutting them I added a little bit of sparkle using the Arteza Gel Pens and adhere a foam tape at the back of each pencils.


To assemble this card, I cut a piece of Recollections Kraft Cardstock and adhere the pencils one at a time until I am happy with it. After that, I cut a piece of Recollections Green Cardstock and added the sentiment I printed earlier then attached it in the front. To complete the set up, I added one more pencil beside the sentiment for a little compliment. To finish it off, I attached it to the card base and were done!

I hope you like what I created today and you'll give it a shot!

Creepy Cute Friday Release #138 Art Your Heart Out

 



Happy Friday crafty friends and welcome back! Today, I'm sharing a Project Inspiration using our Friday release of CCC #138 Art Your Heart Out.
With this card I decided to use Digital Stamp Hand Drawn Kawaii Drip Cartoon Image No.346 as my background. The background made a good combination with our Beautiful girl. 



Isn't she lovely with her blue hair? Did you see the colors of her paint as well as the background? It matches right?

I combine CCC # 138 Art Your Heart Out and Digital Stamp Hand Drawn Kawaii Drip Cartoon Image No.346 to make this project. As always, as I colored it using my Arteza Ever Blend markers. I love how they blend so well even just using 2 colors from their Color family.




I hope you like what I made today and give it a try. Be sure to head over to Oddball Website and check out all the fabulous and fun digis they have!

Catch Up...


So to catch up... I meant to have this ready for last week but we decided to go away for a few days, now that travel within Victoria is a little easier. 

I always watch out for the new release from Oddball Art Stamps

The one last week from the Creepy Cute Chronicles! was

 CCC#136 Premium Spooky Mail (I am using this)

but CCC#137 Cozy and Crafty is now available too.

You will see a similar post on my blog, Calling All Crafters,  
along with other posts you might like...


I printed the 6 motifs and painted them all with my shimmery watercolours. I then cut them out and decided to make a simple pop up.

Step One:

Using two glossy black card blanks, I scored and folded one of them at 1.25 inches both sides of the fold, and then glued them together.


Step Two:

I attached one motif on the outside or front of the card.


Step Three:

On opening, the other images are revealed.




Did you know that Oddball Art Co has an event on Lizzy Love's shop ?

Would love to see you join in!!

The first prompt is to make a Gratitude ATC - what are you grateful for?

The last months have been difficult for all of us what with Covid, restrictions, lockdowns...

On top of this I lost both my parents in the space of 3 months - in August and October. How often did I wish I could fly back to the UK in those months?
But I am in Australia and they were in the UK.

I am so grateful for the love and support of my family and friends during this tough time.
I am grateful for all the mail that I have received from them - I had thought I could use one of the images from CCC#136 on my ATC...

I have found that my craft room has been my lifeline - getting messy with paint.
I am so grateful that I have that outlet...

Then I remembered Maya Angelou's quote
'This is a wonderful day. I've never seen this one before.'


I decided my ATC needed to feature this, a messy background and a paintbrush...
I remembered Lizzy Love's Clever Dexter image drawn for the
where the current challenge is 'kindness' - you might want to join in there too...


Happy Crafting!

Cozy and Crafty

Hello! 

Today I show you this card that I made with the Oddball Stamps digis for today's tutorial. 


The main images on this card are this week's freebie CCC137 Cozy & Crafty and images 131 Creepy Cute Girl Kendell Collector of Hearts and 236 Big Eye Girl Robot Anne Droid


To do it, I first colored the digis with my Finecolour and cut them with scissors. 


I punched out some trees on white cardboard that I shaded with alcohol markers and the grass that I inked with I-Zink Menthe ink. 


The white card stock panel in the background was inked with Distress Ink Forest Moss. 

I cut out the sentiment as a banner. 


Assembly is simple. Glue the different pieces of the background, with tape the cauldron and part of the banner and embossed with double-sided tape with foam the girls and the feeling. 

It is not complicated to do and it is quick to finish. 


I hope you like it and encourage you to make your own creations and share them with the hashtag #creepycutechr├│nicles. Remember that you have the discount code DTIRENE10 for your purchases at Oddball Stamps and that on the Wix page you have a very fun challenge open. 

See you!
