Craft Room Tissue Box Cover

I can't always think of things to make with stamps, other than cards or gift tags.  I don't do much scrapbooking these days.  So when I saw this image, I thought it would be perfect for my tissue box holder I had been planning to make.




I tried using my AG Minc with a glitter sheet, but it would not adhere to my toner, not sure why.  So I decided to upload the sentiment into DS and cut it out in glitter vinyl. This worked out perfect.

I used a heavy duty card stock for the base and then layers of purple and white.  This helps the box become a little sturdier.  I embossed the white layer so it wouldn't seem so plain.  I am loving the colors, my craft room is black and white, I think purple is a good pop of color.  Now if I could just buy the new Lilac Cricut Explore.

Bingo with Catch a Bug

Today's challenge is a Bingo challenge.

I used distress, die/punch, and bugaboo image.  This is June's Newsletter image, you receive a free image with each month's newsletter.  So jump on over to the Bugaboo Stamp Store and sign up.


This card was shared in one of my Cricut Explore groups, I wish I knew who shared it so I could give her a shout out.  This is a side step card, I made a few changes, like using the window box image and adding the flower vine on the sign post, plus a little grass in front of the fence.  

You can't tell by the picture, but I cut out two windows and added a piece of acetate in the center so it looks like glass.  The curtains are behind the glass.  Nuvo Crystal drops in Bright Gold were used for the little screw heads on the signs.  

I used a "wood slat"embossing folder from CTMH to create the look of wood.  My other wood grain folders embossing was too large to work with these little pieces.  Next time, I think I'll do a little slicing to add a little dimension to the top of the window frame.

Freebie Friday - Heartstrings

Today's card is the Freebie Friday image available at the Bugaboo Stamp Store.

The die cut "you" is an image available in DS.  I cut 3 white layers and glued them together to add dimension.  The stamped sentiment is from Honeybee "sentiment builder".  The background layer is Distress Oxide Ink in "Worn Lipstick".   I added a little sparkle to the wings with my Wink of Stella.

It's a Shell-e-bration!

I picked out this cute little mermaid to showcase on Bugaboo's Oldie but Goodie Thursday.  Partly because this was an image I won, during the big Birthday Bash last year, it is "Under the Sea Birthday Set".    You really need to take a look at all the wonderful images at the Bugaboo Stamp Store.

First I created a water background with my Distress Inks and watercolor paper.  The colors used here were Mermaid Lagoon, Peacock Feathers and Cracked Pistachio.

I cut a shell image from DS, the background of the shell is actually clear vellum, which I colored, by blending my Distress Inks onto it.  It looks like I bought it that way.  The ink blends really well onto the vellum.

The background is a circle image I created in SCAL 4, then uploaded into DS.  I added some sparkle to the bubbles with my Wink of Stella, clear.

I wrote my sentiment with my Explore, the font is Modern Calligraphy - Cigar Box Font.  I had to separate the letters and place them with the flow of the banner.

A few sequins for more bubbles and she was all done.

Humor Me Wednesday.

Here is an oldie but goodie from Bugaboo Stamps, "Frame It - Gus Golf".   I chose this image in honor of Father's Day, which is fast approaching.


I used chalks on the grass and sky in the background, then colored the image with my Prismacolor pencils.  This paper is from Graphic 45 "Good Ol' Sport" collection.   I picked this up at Tuesday Morning for a really good price.  Lately my TM hasn't had much paper to choose from, the word must be out.

Not much on instructions, the zig-zag is an image available in DS.  I don't have may dies with shapes, that's what I have my Cricut Explore for.  It's hard to see, but I added a little zig-zag impression along the edges.  These dies, don't cut, they only add stitching and other designs along your straight edges, you can find them at  Simon Says Stamp or My Favorite Things.  

Before you leave, take a moment to browse the Bugaboo Stamp Store and check out all the amazing images.
