AHSC # 17

Hi Everyone!
This weeks Atlantic Heart Sketch challenge i made with a few of my favorite colors and all the littles ones are returning to School, i made this fun little card. I used a 2nd generation inking on the lace stamp (from the Artbooking Cricut Collection) and i used a Honeycomb set from the last idea book (you can still buy it :-)

Here is the sketch i worked from:

You're a Delight! Apple.




 Here is another look of the lace i stamped. For an uneven 2nd generation stamped image i flipped my versamat with the foam side up and then i placed my scrap paper on there and when i stamped down i kinda did a rock n roll with the block and pressed down harder on some spots, right after i stamped my image on to the card before it dried (if it does and it is dye-based ink...just huff on it a bit). Added a some embellishments and WASHI tape.

Thanks for reading and Please feel free to comment, i love to read them!

Condolences

Here is a card i made last week. It was made with a new stamp set and the retired paper pack called Avonlea. Shabby chic is one of my favorite styles and i love to mix hard and soft textures like paper and glitter or lace with metal. I am not sure if you have ever used an edge distresser before..you must. I used to use scissor before, now i really love using for most of my shabby chic projects. 


Isn't fun to discover new tools? It isn't a Hoot! Until next time my friends.

Atlantic Heart Sketch Challenge #15

It is that wonderful time of the week where i can show you the newest sketch from Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge (AHSC)
This Week the Designer Michelle posted a fun sketch and i really wanted to copy it just right. I decided to use Cricket Craft Room with the Art Philosophy Cricket Cartridge. I was able to manipulate the images to match this weeks sketch, it was fun and all i had to do was load the cricket and hit cut, it turned out great, my tip would be to make a few of the same cuts just in case you might need to redo a piece or 2 like i did, i took my favorite 2013 summer colors in cardstock scraps, I used an awesome retired stamp set featuring Dinosaurs. I love taking "boy" stamps and making them work for girly stuff.

Here is the Sketch 15

Here my Dino Card
I have a little tip for the excess glue, if you want to check out my product review post last week ---Link---

Rub and Remove Eraser

Have you ever had some excess glue from sticking down piece of paper and you have some glue that runs out or your tape runner leaves a little bit of glue at the edge? Save your fingers from rub burn!!

Here you can see in the first picture that there is a little glue from my ATG gun that went over the edge a little bit

I took this little handy Rub & Remove Eraser or just glue eraser..lol

ok so this picture makes it look way larger then it actually is..it is about 2"x 2". the one you see in the picture will be a year old next month, it is still is perfect working condition. I keep this wonderful little life saver beside my versamat, beside my bone folder.

I used the edge or the corner of the eraser to rub gently in a circle motion and the glue peels off leaving your art perfect.


A word of advice do not use this on glue that is super fresh, it will rub off the paper too, if you can't tell i have does this a few times.

If you would like to have one your self, contact your CTMH Consultant or if your in Canada please check out my shopping site to get your own. Shipping times have been reduced to under a week now..Isn't that great news!

Until next time folks!
