Coffee lovers...a day late!

I made this to enter into the Coffee Lovers Blog Hop for coffee day. I didn't make it! Oh well!
 I used MFP's Oh, Beans from 2012. I stamped the cups on dp and fussy cut and made my own dp with the background sentiment. Some more dp and a fancy cut out for my sentiment along with ribbon and a rhinestone brad. The edges were sponged with burnt umber.
Thanks for looking!

MPC Autumn challenge

Good morning and happy day to everyone out there in blogland!  My card was made for the Autumn challenge over on the Mountain Plains Crafters blog. I used the Unity August 2014 KOTM. I stamped the images in burnt umber on dp and watercolored the leaves. I then sponged the edges with burnt umber as well. A fun punched edge and some twine.
I have had a wild and crazy summer!  Lots of things happening in the Stang household.l

Mountain Plains Crafters Christmas in July Blog Hop

For my first card, I used Peaceful Wishes by SU!. Probably one of my all time favorite sets. I stamped the pine boughs first by painting on the spruce smooch paint. Heated it to speed drying and then stamped the pinecones in Color Box Saddle ink and the twigs were done that way, too with some real red for the berries. The sentiment stamp was painted with smooch paint, too. After it was all dry, I used the champagne Smooch Spritz for an all over shimmer. Comment for your chance to win these products shown in photo.
My second creation, I used this darling set from Unity...Snow Much Fun. I painted the trees in smooch spruce, the sled and bg done in the saddle ink and then a layer of champagne smooch spritz done over image.


Head over to Terri's blog next here.

SplitCoast Stampers CC476

I made this for the color challenge over on split coast.  The colors are wisteria wonder, pear pizzazz and primrose petal and for dessert, gold metallic rub.  Photographed weird! I used markers to color the stamps and then spritzed with water before stamping. Embossed image and then put gold metallic rub where I pleased. Didn't like the white in the bg so sponged on the pear pizzazz. Butterfly done in all the colors and some gold, too and then a clear coat of shine painted over it. Some sheer ribbon to finish it off and heated to distress it some. I used Unity Stamps...donna peony and art & possibility.


Launching of our craft blog~Mountain Plains Crafters

Good day to everyone in blogland!  So excited to be hosting our first challenge over at Mountain Plains Crafters. Today we chose to go with an inspiration photo I took of a beautiful flower arrangement at the Mirage in Vegas. 
Here it is below

In stazon I stamped my Inkadinkadoo tulips and then added the Unity itty bitty Big Summertime Bouquet on watercolor paper. Next, I used watercolor crayons and some reinkers mixed with water to paint my image. To increase the vibrancy of the colors, I clear embossed the entire image. The sentiment is from the itty bitty as well. So ribbon tabs and pretty brads and some distressing to finish it off. Play along with us and load your card up on our FB page Mountain Plains Crafters to be eligible to win a prize...winners picked a week from today.

Mojo Monday 339 sketch

Happy Monday to everyone out in blogland!!! Home and happy to get my crafting on! I decided to play in the Mojo Monday sketch challenge found here.   I used Unity's KOM for March kit. I love this dp that my neighbor gave me from Hobby Lobby. I used the cover page so I no longer know what it is called! I cut the butterflies out of the paper as well and layered them. The two strips are embossed with brick ef.

Have a lovely day!

Wishy washy believe

This was made for the mix challenge on SCS. I sprayed water all over my mixed media paper and then with a paint brush applied ink in only orange, distressed blue jeans and lavender. I masked for the black and did a mirror image for the lighthouse.
My sentiment is from a new set at Unity called Empowered Words by Donna Downey and the lighthouse is from MFP's Silhouette mini selections.
