Pumpkin Time-Stamprints

For my October creation using Stamprints images I have chosen the pumpkin. This image is cute and works perfectly for Thanksgiving, Halloween or just autumn in general.

You can find this image at Stamprints Etsy. You can see more wonderful images and projects on the Stamprints Blog.

I started by printing the image and colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils. I tried to layer the colours to give the pumpkin some depth.

I decided to make this card a versatile card by just putting a cute “Happy” diecut. I think it could be used for Thanksgiving or Halloween.

I found some burlap style paper that I was excited to incorporate into my autumn-ish project! Here is the completed card.

Thanks for looking!

Shrinky Dink Earrings!

My boys and I are really into pop culture! I think that this shared love of pop culture puts me in the parenting win column but the I realized that I have at least one fail as a parent! This was realized tonight when my youngest asked me what I was making. My boys often see me creating projects for various design teams, gifts or for personal use but I guess I have never made anything with Shinky Dinks in front of them! I combined my love of pop culture, making jewelry and colouring to make Shrinky Dink earrings!!

I started by stamping my chosen Kindred Stamps onto Shrinky Dink film with my Momento ink. I let it dry for a few minutes and then coloured my images with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers. Once my colouring was dry I cut out the stamped image and left a bit of space at the top so that I could punch a hole into the plastic. That would be where I attach the earring hook or jump ring if used. I then used my heat gun to shrink.

The weird thing with Shrinky Dinks is that they always look bad before they look good! The above picture is during the shrinking process. Notice it looks twisted and not very nice. After heating a little longer you get the finished product.

Here is a picture of the Shrinky Dinks before and after the shrinking process.

You will notice that after shrinking the colours look a bit more concentrated so keep that in mind when choosing your colours.

This particular stamp shrinks to a nice size to be used as earrings or a necklace pendant.

Here are the completed earrings! I love how this turned out and now I have a sweet pair of earrings to wear in October. 😊

Rose Mackintosh on Canvas For Stamprint

I just realized that we are at the tail end of September. The month has been flying by and I have been so busy that I have’t done very much crafting. I did colour a few images here and there starting with this gorgeous image from Stamprints . You can find the image at Stamprints Etsy

I printed the Rose Mackintosh image 4 to a page and coloured them with Spectrum Noir and Chameleon markers. I decided to try different hair and skin tones and was originally going to make a series of cards but when I found some 4×6 canvases at the dollar store I decided to go that route. I used a red and black acrylic paint to create a drippy effect and left it to dry for a few days. Since I had coloured some of the small details on the image a golden colour, I wanted to add a bit of gold to the canvas as well. I achieved this with a Vicki Boutin gold glaze. I originally added a few streaks with a paint brush but ended up rubbing it on with a cloth. I let it dry a couple of days.

I used a dollar store stencil and some Heidi Swapp texture paint to create a bit of dimension. I laid it on pretty thick. Again I let it dry for a few days.

I cut the coloured Stamprints images to the desired shape and attached using a glossy ModPodge, and dried over night.

The last step of my mini canvases was to stamp my sentiments. I used 2 different stamps from Kraftin Kimmie, stamped onto regular paper. I tore the stamped sentiments to give then a bit more texture and then Mod Podged those as well.

Here are the completed canvases! I am quite happy with how it turned out. Next time I think I will lay my image down before the texture paint.

Tulips Vase-Stamprints

Hi I am back with a couple of projects that I have made using the ever lovely Stamprints digital images.

I chose a clean, simple yet very elegant image. The image that I chose this month is the Tulips Vase.

I printed two of the tulips images. I was undecided what colour combo I would do for my project so I used both of the images coloured.

Here is card #1!

And here is card #2

With both projects I used the same supplies but in different colours.

Here is my supply list: Tulips Vase digital image from Stamprints, Spectrum Noir markers, textured cardstock is by Bazzill Paper, enamel hearts Doodlebug Designs, Happy Birthday Stamp By Lawn Fawn, CTMH polka dot ribbon, white cardstock Recollections

You can find the Tulips Vase image as well as many other Stamprints images on Etsy here Stamprints Etsy
