Pick of the Patch with 7 Kids and Stampingbella


I can't believe I haven't shared this card that was made during a Live at 7 Kids weeks ago!  I so love the new Stamping Bella stamps and this little called Bundle Girl at the Pumpkin Patch.  Kelly is all out of this cutie but she does have a number of other adorable girls from Stamping Bella including Bundle Girl in a Pile of Leaves.

She would totally work for this card too!  I used the fabulous Sweet November Digital Stamp, Halloween Background Builders for the pumpkin patch.   


Everything was colored in Copics.  We created a gate fold during our LIVE.  If you'd like to see the entire tutorial please visit:  Made for Creativity

Vampires, Witches and Ghouls, OH MY!


I can't believe that I haven't gotten a chance to share this fun card I made using the new Sweet November Digital stamps from 7 Kids Crafts.  I adore this Vampiress Mircea.  Isn't she just lovely with her adorable bat?  I colored her with my Copics trying to get a fun and sparkly dress.  I'm wondering though if I should have put her in red.  I think that would have added a bit more contrast to my scene!  Make sure to check out all the new Sweet November Digis!

No Tricks - All Treats with Hello Bluebird and 7 Kids


Hi ya everyone!  Today I am sharing a card I made during a Saturday Night Live on Facebook!  My products were purchased at 7 Kids.  I used the adorable Hello Bluebird Stamp set called Little Haunters.  I also used Fireworks Sprays to create a watercolored background.


The little characters were colored with Zig markers on Arche's Watercolor Paper!  I used the absolutely adorable new Main Street die from LDRS Creative!  I love this diecut so much.  You can jazz it up or you can use it in silhouette form the way I did.


The sentiment was added in white embossing powder.  You can find the live demonstration HERE:  https://www.facebook.com/MadeForCreativity/videos/1536568649816138/

Welcome to a winter and Christmas day!  I've used the adorable Otterly Lovable Stamp set today along with the beautiful paper, Christmas Cottage.  I used the treeline stamp and die as well.  In addition I threw in the Hugs from the Cherry Blossoms Stamp set.


First, I chose my papers and stamps.  I inked the otters in Hybrid Raven ink and watercolored them with my pens.


I did the same with the treeline stamp set and chose a beautiful die from the Practically Oval Die set.   I glued down the otters and the treeline and then cut the black paper out with the gorgeous large die from the set.


Last, I adhered the layers and placed a white sheer ribbon around.  The sentiment was added too with Raven Hybrid ink from LDRS Creative.
