Gorjuss Poppy

Hello amazing people!  We are almost ending this challenge so I hope you make a few more cards so you have a great chance of winning our prize!
My card is Poppy from Docrafts Gorjuss Girl Collection and she is colored in Copics which was hard because she is tiny and red bleeds, lol  I love the bold red and blacks.
I also used Wild Orchid Crafts Poppies from our store to adorn her. 


Thank you for stoping by and checking us out and joining our challenge, we love
seeing your creations and look forward to them!
Have a fabulous day!

Cherish someone today


Tammy Louise here today with just how simple it is to create with the collection of Gorjuss mini stamps you can get from 7 Kids College Fund store for less than $3.00!!!  So she is called "Puddle of Love"  isn't she darling?  

Outside of scoring an A2 size of Cryogen Copic paper, stamping the image with my Mini Misti and going around the outside of the edge with a cute little stamp from the Key to Love clear stamp collection from the Whimsy section of the store, all I did was color her!


Clean and Simple!  Sometimes it's about making it the way you see it, that doesn't always need flowers, ribbons and bows for me!  I could make 10 of these in a day and use them for any occasion!  Maybe I will??  lol 

Everything you need for this project is available at the 7 Kids College Fund Store now!  And don't forget to join our challenge too!  There's still some time left to win!  

INGREDIENTS:

MEDIUMS:
Copic Ink: E13,21,00,000,R20 and R30
BV 20,21,25 and R81,83,85.  
I think I used E21,25 and 27 for the hair

Hope you've enjoyed the project, for pics and info on my blog! 
Until next time,
Hugs,
Tammy Louise

Love is in the Air

Happy heart day!  Well, I know it's just a little past Valentines Day but it can be Love for any reason with this                                                 bright multi media water colored card.  Don't you think?

     Before I go any further with today's project, don't forget to join us at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog                                                                       this month for a chance at the Prize!

Today's project is on a watercolor paper base, I embossed a Love sentiment that I think is large and lovely from the Whimsy collection of the store and water colored over it to show the resist.  I used spring colors that would coordinate with the love feeling of the card.

Then I broke out the new Hearts Plush Heart Memory box stencil and the Gesso to stencil a portion of the large heart over to the left side of the project.  I wanted it to be bumpy and lumpy and did so by adding some texture flakes and glitter.  Then I heat dried it so it would crack on the outside layer.  By doing this, the blue paint seeped into the cracks and gave it this beautiful texture.  

INGREDIENTS:
Time to pull out the chipboard!  Wycinanka is a fantastic, elegant and intricate chipboard to use!  The store selection is magnificent too!  You'll not be disappointed when you take a peak around for what will accentuate your next project!  I Gesso on all the pieces, air balloon and heart arrow then watercolor painted them to coordinate.  Glittered them up a bit.  The sentiment, of course was one of my favorites from the TLC Expressions.  The little hearts were used from the sentiment to add to the hot air balloon and the project was complete.

One of my favorites this year thus far!!  Join me in water coloring won't you?  It's a nice break from pen coloring.

MEDIUMS:
Kuretake Gansai Tambi watercolor

Hope you enjoyed today's Spring project?  

till next time,

Tammy Louise

Sparkle where ever you go

Goodness, is it February already?  Tammy Louise here with you today to share one of my first water color projects of the new year.  I'm in love with Steampunk!  As you can tell, this adorable stamp from Art Stamp called "Mannequin Steampunk goes perfectly with my Keytailed Dragonfly die set! 

All of the products less the water color paints are available at the 7 Kids College Fund Store.  Sometime it's about working with what you love even when it's in a clean and simple way.  A lot of my projects are loaded with embellishments but at times, I just want to get inky!

  I found some Strathmore watercolor cards and envelopes at Hobby Lobby and thought they would be terrific to try out a new pearlized paint set.  I Washi taped off the edges first and embossed the stamp with clear embossing powder.  I used turquois, pink, red and purple simply swiping the color on an angle from one corner of the card to the other.  

INGREDIENTS:  

MEDIUMS:  
Versafine black ink
watercolor pearlized paint

EMBELLISHMENTS: 
Recollections Pearls

INSPIRATIONAL THOUGHT FOR THE DAY:
Out of all the things you wear, your expression is the most important.
  
I'll visit with you again next week!  More info on my blog too. Handmadebytlc

Twisted Pop Up Card with Gorjuss Girls

Hello, Welcome to our blog today!

I want to share a card I made using a tutorial from Pinterest, they have a few variations of this card.  It looks like a regular card on the outside and when you open it a panel twists and then folds out to display a 4 panel ATC sized book

On the front of the card I used Wycinanka Chipboard Balloon and paper pieced it, then used my Copics to color in some areas. The florals are Wild Orchid Crafts and 1 Prima. The paper is Pion Design The Songbird's Secret, all of this is in our STORE

Here it is completely open. I love how it folds out so you can tell a story.  I put another piece of Wycinaka Chipboard on the inside, well not a great idea, looks fabulous but when I close the card it gets hung up on the chipboard.  Lesson learned. lol


Above you can see inside the fold out part, it is amazing how people's brains can create them, I was confused for a while but then once I got it, so easy!

A closer look at the balloon Chipboard and each of the panels



One of the cards from Pion Designs The Songbird's Secret




Here is a short video demonstration of what it looks like when you open it





Don't forget about our challenge, just click the top right card and it will bring you to it so you can enter your card to win $20.00 to shop in 7 Kids College Fund Your Crafting Supplies Store!

Have a awesome Weekend!
