Deborah here posting another creation I made for Crafty Card Gallery
to go with our theme – female birthday for the month of March.
I know it’s a bit late but before I posted had to make sure that my swap partner received it as I had joined Scraps Of Darkness and Scrap Of Elegance facebook page Doll Tag Swap.
I always wondered why everyone loved using these Dolls and so I thought, “I gotta see what all the excitement is about them”. And I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed coloring and embellishing this doll. There is so much versatility in using these Doll Stamps. This one was an image that was previously given to me by a friend but I did go out and purchase one from Hobby Lobby. (heheheheeee)
So here is my doll tag and supplies –
Stamp – Julie Nutting Doll stamp (I don’t know the name)
Paper – Authentique – Classique Pretty and Tags
Ink – TH Distress – black soot, spun sugar; colored with Copics
Accessories – ribbon – pink; seam binding – dyed using black soot; Lace; Prima Marketing – Gold flower center, Say it in Crystals;
Stickles – ice glade; Stampendous – Frantage embossing powder used Shabby pink (for the background)
**Stash – flowers
***Close Up – you can see the Frantage spread around the
tag and image.
***To get her dress to look poofy I folded up a piece of paper
like a skirt gluing that down first and then added the Lace
on top of the paper.

Welcome to this months card challenge from the Crafty Card Gallery.
Here is my project for this months challenge. I decided to do a traditional valentine on burlap, using Tim Hotz latest – “Technique Re mix”- from 12 tags, Feb. I was so inspired after finishing my creation that I had to share a smaller version for this months card challenge.

Welcome to this months Crafty Card Gallery card challenge. Theme: Christmas
This is my favourite time of year – from decorating the house to designing cards, it’s pure bliss.
Here is my card for this months challenge and tutorial to follow…
Background – Tim Holtz Watercolor Card Stock (I used the smooth side) or Strathmore mixed media paper (brown series)
Using a blending tool, blend various distress inks on paper. I used Antique Linen and Iced Spruce.
Next use a Mini mister or spray bottle and mist into your hand then flick the water onto the paper, and heat set. This gives the illusion of water droplets. This background technique is super fun and easy.
Stamp Crazy Birds in Black archival ink with Black embossing powder, heat set. I find this last step easier when colouring and it gives more definition. I used mixed media paper, because I was making a lot of them.
For the colouring of the Crazy Birds, I used Neocolor 2, water soluble crayons – they work well and come in various colors. You can also use Ranger distress markers.
There is an option for cutting out those Crazy Birds and accessories. You can either fussy cut them or use the Sizzix coordinating dies, which are super cute and easy to use.
I used the balloon string stamp from the Crazy Things stamp set and dies to create the “whip” and Holiday Joy stamp set/die for the antlers on the “dog”.
The beauty of having the coordinating dies, is you can add layers to the birds, to give them more dimension.
For a nice finish, glossy accents was put on certain areas of the birds to give dimension and crackle accents on the whip. The outlines around the background I used a Fabre-Castel Pitt pen (black-medium). For mounting onto card stock, any colour is fine. I usually try and coordinate them.
I just love playing with the “Craziness”, the possibilities are endless!
Thanks a bunch for stopping by and happy creating!
Ever since I received my Tim Holtz Crazy Birds and accessories – dies/stamps; I knew I would fall in love with them. They are so adorable and super fun to play with. These Crazy Birds came in handy for this months card challenge theme; Trees. Here is my card….
Handmade mixed media card
I decided to use a tree branch from Tim Holtz Sizzix Bigz die – Branch Tree -, used distress ink walnut stain with the Woodgrain embossing folder to create dimension on the branch. His wings/face are popped up for definition and I couldn’t resist to add a saying from the “Crazy Talk” stamp set – define normal – it just seemed to fit perfectly.
I just love to get in with all the craziness – the possibilities are endless.
Thanks for stopping by and happy creating!
