I've had a fun little project churning in my mind to make bookmarks for The Piglets' classmates. They have AR reading programs and track how many words they read each quarter, so I know they are all reading.
A shot of all of them (23).
I used CTMH's Frightfully Fun stamp set and BoBunny's 6x6 Fright Delight paper pad die cut using MFT Blueprints 13. The circles are Neenah Solar White cardstock diecut using MFT Stitched Circles STAX. I colored the images with Prismacolor Pencils (and a few with Copic markers. I just don't have very many markers yet. Boo.) After coloring each image, I brushed on water spritzed Distress Inks in Wilted Violet, Cracked Pistachio, Mowed Lawn, Peacock Feathers, Fossilized Amber, or Spiced Marmalade. I also used Spellbinders Lacy Circle dies with PTI Black cardstock and Bazzil Black cardstock to mat the images before adhering. The black ribbon and orange twine are some from my stash I was most happy to use up and both came from Michaeal's (the twine from the $1 bin!)
I had the most fun coloring images while hanging out with my sister (via FaceTime!). We like to spend some of our days crafting together, but since we are 3 hours away technology is our friend. Now I just have to pin her down long enough for me to make about 20 more for The Sultan's class. :D
I wanted to play along with the following challenges:
Just Us Girls, Halloween colors -
Cut It Up, Halloween Tags -
PDE Linky Party, Halloween colors -
and the CAS-USAL Chic Challenge Tic Tac Toe'ing
(Coloring, Spritzing [water and ink spritzed], die cutting) -
After finishing up my first round of Halloween projects, I wanted to shift and take a break. And I wanted to play along with the current CAS(E) This Sketch! challenge. (I plan to play along again with this one.)
Since I've also been wanting to use my MFT Whole Herd cow on a Christmas card, I thought I'd give it a whirl with this challenge. I had to cut this hat off of a snowman from my Paper Smooches Freezy Fellas set. Not the best fit. Lol. But I have a santa set on its way to me. (eek. I have a hard time NOT buying up every Christmas stamp I see. :-O I could pick out, at least, 10 more I would like to buy right now.)
Now that I look at it after a night's sleep, the hat looks really bad. LOL! But it was fun. When I get a new hat, I will try it again. :) The sentiment is stamped in Lawn Fawn Cranberry red ink using MFT's Grand Holiday Greetings stamp set. I used the washi tape in the top left corner to cover up a boo-boo. Ha! And the black strip to ground the Christmas cow. :D-
I'm also playing along with:
CAS on Sunday, Washi tape challenge -
and Christmas Card Challenge, Anything Goes -
Thanks SO much for stopping by to visit! Please do so again.
