PCC #110 and Gelli fun!

Hi Everyone!

I had 2 HOT days without any visitors. So I stayed close to the air conditioner and got some crafting time in. :)

Here is the PaperCrafter Corner inspiration cover for this week.

I was drawn to the colorful bathing suits. I knew I had a Unity bathing suit stamp that hasn't seen any ink soooo.....

I masked and stamped the suit then colored them in with Prismacolor pencils. 

While shopping this week I picked up some paint from Walmart to use with my Gelli plate. I picked up a few Decoart Andy Skinner at Pat Catan's too.

Two of these prints are happy accidents. When I took off the lids of the copper Ranger dauber the dauber and some paint fell out of the bottle. I grabbed the stencil and applied the paint with my fingers. :) The excess created a second print. BONUS!

Here are the cards I made from them.....

The note and birthday are the accidents. All the cards use Unity stamps and Spellbinders.

I hope you have a great creative week!

Hi Everyone!

I wasn't sure I would get a card done this week, but I did :)

This is a great summer image from Papercrafters Corner. For my card I decided to just us the orange color with white.

I used scraps of orange paper, Spellbinders' embossing folder and label die, and a Unity stamp. 
Quick and easy. 

Hopefully I'll see you next weekend. It's my Florida sister's last week here. :(

PCC #108

Hi Everyone!

I'm still without a desktop and if I don't get busy, I'll be without a laptop too.'s week 108 at PaperCrafters Corner!

There are so many possibilities with this image. I chose the ice cream cone. I even had some Dear Lizzy paper with ice cream cones in it.

Once I realized I didn't want the patterned paper to cover the whole background it came together quickly. The stamp I used, of course, is Unity.

I finally broke down and bought a Gelli plate. I bought the 3x5 just to see if I liked it. I don't. I LOVE IT! It's so much fun trying to figure out what will happen. I bought some index cards from the dollar store to practice on.

My favorite one was the blue print using a DCWV stencil.

I even used paint to color the Unity stamp. You'll probably see more of these Gelli prints in future posts. 

That's it for me this week. It's hot and time to make dinner (without using the oven).

Have a GREAT week & keep cool.

PCC 107

Hi Everyone!

I still don't have my desktop. But at least this week I can use the family laptop. 
This weeks inspiration was a little harder for me.

So I just used the colors. The technique I used for the background is very easy. Take an acrylic block and add ink straight from the ink pad. Give it a spritz of water and stamp it on your paper. You can repeat it as many times as you like.

 Here is another card that I made using 2 sizes of acrylic blocks. 

I hope you decide to join in the PaperCrafters Corner challenge this week.
