One of my Peeps!

Hi, everyone!  After creating my last barnyard card, I had some 'parts and pieces' laying on my desk from the 'Barn Dies' set from Divinity Designs and I envisioned a chicken!  I grabbed some red and orange scraps, cut the comb with the hay die and the beak is the cut-out piece from the barn door....if you can't visualize it, take a look at the die set HERE.  The two panels were cut out with the Double Stitched Squares Dies, the sentiment is from 'Hogs and Kisses', and the gingham bow was tied with a Bow Easy.  I was so happy to find a large googlie eye in my eyeball stash!!

Divinity Designs LLC September New Release

Hi, everyone!  It's time for another brand new release from Divinity Designs LLC!!  To see the entire new release and all of the gorgeous designer projects, plus find out how to win some goodies, click HERE!

Here are the products used to create my card and to decorate the matching purse hanger hook:

Divinity Designs LLC Perk Up Stamp/Die Duos Divinity Designs LLC Custom Letter Board Dies

Divinity Designs LLC Custom USA Map Dies Divinity Designs LLC Custom Clouds and Raindrops Dies

My card today features the new 'Perk Up' Stamp/Die Duos set, along with the Letter Board Dies set, tiny hearts from the 'Clouds and Raindrops' Dies, and medium thumb tack from the USA Map Dies set.  The coffee pot and cup were stamped with Stazon Jet Black, cut out with the custom dies, watercolored, highlighted with a white gel pen, then coated with a clear glaze pen.  The small letters, raised embossed areas of  'Coffee', hearts, and the black thumb tack were coated with the clear glaze pen as well.  The card base was scored with a Scor-buddy and the edges were inked for added dimension.

My second project is a decorated 'Purse Hanger' hook......to hang your bag onto the table edge instead of sitting it on the floor.  A circle was cut from ivory cardstock and edges sponged, the 'coffee' word was stamped with one of the sentiments from the 'Perk Up' Stamp/Die Duos set by using masking. The cup was watercolored and cut out like the card above.  After the tiny heart was added, Glossy Accents were used to fill in the complete space.  This was really easy to make, however, waiting two days to make sure the gloss was completely cured was NOT easy....I've ruined too many projects in the past by touching it to see if it was dry so I made myself wait this time! :)

Because of the awesome price, I purchased a handful of these hooks from the company from which I buy my magnet cards and storage boxes for my cutting dies, Stamp-n-Storage.  (Click on 'hook only' on the wastebasket page.)

Thanks for hanging out with us today!

Flip Flap Barnyard

Hi, everyone!  I recently saw this tutorial on SplitcoastStampers.com for a Flip-Flap Card and I knew I wanted to give it a try, using the fun farm-themed goodies from Divinity Designs LLC. Here are the items used: Farm Friends Stamp/Die Duos, Barn Dies, Farm Fence Die, Clouds and Raindrops Dies, Grass Hill Die, Grass Lawn Die; on the inside is a scripture verse from the 'Farmer's Prayer' stamp set.   I had to adjust the measurements to fit my pieces, but it worked out great!  (A piece of advice: make sure you don't glue things permanently until you know everything works just right.)  For my lever arm, I used one of the 'Bookmarks Dies' to shape one end only of the strip.

Pull the lever and the barn door will open to reveal what's inside!  How fun is that?!

Letter Board Magnet Gift

Hi, everyone!  Today I'd like to share a fun refrigerator magnet I created for my brother-in-law's birthday, using the Letter Board Dies set from Divinity Designs.  They love to cruise as much as Hubs and me, so I made a magnet for him to place on the fridge next to his cruise count-down calendar!  I began by stamping the scene in Stazon Jet Black with the largest image from the 'Bon Voyage' stamp set; the sky was sponged, then the panel was cut out and embossed with the Letter Board Dies set.  The frame and letters were cut from black cardstock.  After the letters and frame were adhered to the scenic panel, a clear glaze pen was used to coat them.  I added an extra layer of cardboard on the back then cut a square from a magnet sheet, with adhesive backing, to line the backside of the piece.

Dare To Get Dirty - Day Two!!!!

Hi, everyone!  It's day two of Dare To Get Dirty week over at Splitcoast!!  My card today is for (my former Design Team Sister) Sandee's DTGD19stampersandeeA challenge. To see the challenge details, check out the Dare To Get Dirty Forum. If you'd like to become a Fan Club member, click on this Joining the Fan Club link. Regarding my card, I began with a Soft Suede card base then swiped vertical lines with the matching ink pad to create a 'faux wood' look. The Chicken Wire Background Die was cut from black cardstock and popped up with foam tape. To make it more rustic, the rooster and sentiments from 'Rise & Shine' were stamped onto designer paper instead of cardstock. The words to the sentiment were stamped in sections, using masking, onto small die cut sections cut with the Log Cabin Quilt Die; the image panel was cut out with the Circles Dies set and matted with the Double Stitched Circles Dies set.  The panels were all sponged heavily on the edges. The fastener legs of the brads were cut off, leaving the heads of the brads which were glued to the burlap layer.
