Warm Wishes And Cocoa

Today's project is a sweet scene, featuring stamps from Erin Lee Creative.  This set is available at 
Simon Says Stamp, and has the cutest images for sending warm wishes to your favorite little girl.  Isn't she precious?

I used a variety of coloring tools on these images.  To color the little girl and her pj's and the donut, I used Zig real clean color brushes; Flesh, Brown, Oatmeal, Sugared Almond Pink, Yellow and another brown color that I can't quite make out as it's worn off, but it's close to a mustard color.  I also used Copic BG10 on the mug and accented the mug, headband and hair with a white gel pen.  I also used a copper colored glitter pen from Kaisercraft as "sprinkles" on my donut.









Kaisercraft COLOUR GEL PEN SET CL101

I hand drew some tiny strands of lights and colored these with Copic marker R20 and a bright yellow gel pen from Kaisercraft.  My sentiment was inked using my Misti stamp positioner and Clearsnap Wicked Black ink.





For my pillow, I simply trimmed some Neenah cardstock and used my Ranger Ink blender tool to ink on some distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick.  I also applied faux stitching using my white gel pen.  My girl, pillow and donut are all popped up with foam circles and all my adhesives are from 






Look closely and you'll see that my donut is sitting on a paper "napkin".  The blanket or rug in the background is from the new Echo Park Paper "I Heart Crafting" Kit and was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder.

Coffee & Hearts Shaker Card

We all have our coffee loving friends, right?  Well, I have a coffee loving and crafting best friend.  Her name is Nancy.  I made this card just for her, on her birthday yesterday.  We are both super busy ladies but we try to make time now and then to get together for a cup o' joe or a crafting session.  It doesn't happen nearly as often as I would like!  We did, however, head to a concert last night to see Air Supply.  They were awesome!  Alas, that is a story for another day.

I like to think all my cards are special but when you are creating for your best friend, it's more so.  I used the Jillibean Soup Small Heart Shaker Card Set.  It comes with 8 cards and envelopes, along with 8 shaker hearts that have a peel off sticky backing on the backside.  These are not yet available at Scrapbook.com, however if you click the link, you can select to be notified when they are in stock.  I love them!  They are so easy to use!



I also used the Jillibean Soup Hug in a Mug shaker die and stamp set, also available soon.  I love the possibilities with that adorable heart and cup; gift cards, shape cards and more.




In addition, I used Ranger Ink distress oxide ink in Worn Lipstick for my cup.  I simply trimmed a piece of watercolor paper and dredged it several times on a craft mat that had been inked and spritzed with water.  Once dry, I splattered water droplets and blotted with a paper towel.






My paper is from the Echo Park Hello Faith collection.  Isn't that plaid lovely?




I have another tip for you as well.  Because the Jillibean soup cards come with the heart already cut out on paper, how do you then line up more paper and trim a similar sized heart so your shaker will fit?  I discovered one of the small heart dies in the Scrapbookcom exclusive heart nesting dies works perfectly for this.  You can then pop your shaker through the heart cut out on the card and the heart cut on your panel.






Although Jillibean Soup makes shaker fillers, I'm using Sparkletz from Buttons Galore and More.  All of my adhesives are by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, including the foam circles that I used to pop up my plaid panel and coffee cup.  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Stay crafty...... Terri

National Bubble Bath Day

Hey crafty friends.  Yes indeed, National Bubble Bath Day is a thing!  Who knew?  I had an idea to make easy bubble bath, Unicorn style!  Perfect for getting fussy kids into the bathtub.   Hop on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog for all the details, including that awesome bubbly label below, featuring the MFT Stamps set, Magical Unicorns.  


(FTC Disclosure: as an affiliate for various companies in the craft industry, I will receive a small commission for purchases made through my convenient affiliate links.  This does not affect your purchase price.)







If you popped over here from the Scrapbook Adhesives blog, I promised to share information on the font that I used for my label.  The name of the font is "Fantastic" and is part of a free font bundle available at The Hungry JPEG.  You'll need a program to unzip the file.  You can find many free programs online for this.  If you are not familiar with how to install the free font, once you've unzipped it and downloaded to your computer, there are instructions in the free bundle folder on how to do this.  I chose the Fantastic font as it closely resembled the style of pottery artist, Rae Dunn.  Once I installed my font, I simply created a word document, typed the text, "Unicorn Bubbles" using my font, then printed on Neenah Solar White cardstock.  I allowed enough room on my cardstock so I could stamp the unicorn, do some coloring and create the label with nesting dies.  I hope that answers your questions about the font!




I hope you find a little time to relax and do a little soaking today!  Thanks for popping in.  Be sure and head on over to the Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L blog.  You'll find convenient affiliate shopping links below, for many of the products that I've used today.  Have a great day!  

Terri


(Please note, the nesting dies that I used are not listed below.  You can find the Echo Park dies, here.)
