Warm Wishes

Hello fellow crafters, happy Tuesday.  It's still winter here in New England so I thought this adorable Julie Nutting doll from Prima Prima Julie Nutting Doll Cling Stamp Warm Wishes 501 would help make us feel warmer.

I combined the doll with a snowflake doily die cut I also purchased from 7 Kids.  I added the small snowflake die over top two inside portions from this same die, stamped one of the sentiments from the stamp set and added two folded velum envelopes on each bottom corner.

I enjoy making mixed media projects, some more simple like this one, some I just start by tearing strips of paper, placing them randomly and then adding textures, stencil patterns, stamps, chipboard and embellishments.
Happy crafting.  Please check out 7 Kids online store for these and many other crafting supplies.  Sandy

7 Kids February Challenge

Hello, welcome to 7 Kds February Challenge.   I attended the Prima Art Venture in Phoenix in January and one of the projects we did was with Iron Orchard Designs using their paper clay Pre Order Prima Paper Clay and their molds Pre Order IOD Vintage Art Decor Mould Baroque 6, Pre Order IOD Vintage Art Decor Moulds - "Escucheons 2".  What a great, inexpensive way to add design, dimension and architectural elements to your projects. 
The background is on Prima's Vintage Wall Deco Base painted with black, red, and copper paints Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Royal Red Paint, Prima Art Alchemy Metallique Steampunk Copper Paint. 
We used a script stamp and wreath stamp with black ink for additional interest.  I added a Wycinanka chipboard piece in the middle Wycinanka Let It Snow 14 and a tiny Prima metal flower in the middle.
Hung some of Prima's trinkets off the bottom with eye screws.

Look for these and many more awesome crafting items with 7 Kids.  Have fun crafting.  Sandy

Love and Flowers

Hello, happy Tuesday everyone.

With Valentine's Day coming up, many of us have our loved ones on our minds.  I combned the Key to Love stamp set from Clearly Whimsy Stamps Whimsy Stamps New Key to Love with the Tonic Studios Have A Beautiful Day Circle Frame die set.  Tonic Studios Sew Pretty - Have a Beautiful Day Circle Frame for the special day.  As flowers are also so much of Valentine's Day.  I used a floral paper for the background, fussy cutting a few of the flowers to place on the edges for some added dimenson.

Shop 7 Kids for these items and many other wonderful crafting selections.
Hope all of your enjoy your Valentine's Day!

Wycinaka Steampunk

Hello fellow crafters and especially steampunk lovers. 
I was so excited when I saw 7 Kids was carrying steampunk chipboard pieces from Wycinaka; I just had to have them all!  I have a number of sizes of cigar boxes and thought one of them would be perfect for a steampunk project.  I have a lot of papers with a steampunk theme and picked one to show off the chipboard.  I thought putting the corners opposite each other would add more interest; colored them with chalk spray from my stash.

Here is the inside of the box showing the chipboard on each side and one in the top left corner.  I added just a few mental embellishments and wood balloon as it just isn't steampunk without some metal.

This is the inside of the lid; I loved this chipboard piece and didn't want to add to much to distract from it. 

On the outside edges of the box, I used the same pieces as on the sides of the inside but used a chalk spray close to the color of the paper. 

This shows front edge of box.

Visit 7 Kids College Fund and see all the wonderful chipboard from Wycinanka and all the other wonderful items you can get for your crafting.  Have fun crafting.  Sandy

Whimsy Bears Love February Challenge

Hello crafters and welcome to the February Challenge with 7 Kids.
These bears from DoCrafts Forever Friends Forever Love'Big Heart' were a perfect choice to say Valentine's Day is just around the corner.  Used copic greys to outline the bears and their wings as I wanted the heart to be the focal point.  Then paper pieced bazzill for the heart and placed a 3D embellishment on top.

Used some valentine paper in my stash to cut the X Cut Rose Dollie die, placed a prima flower in the middle and stamped the accompanying sentiment onto heart dies for the corners.  The background paper and embellishments were also some from my stash.

Thanks for stopping by the 7 Kids College Fund challenge.  Please be sure to check out them out as there are always new items being added in the store.  Happy crafting, Sandy

Nature Sketchbook Napkin Fold Card

Hello everyone, happy Tuesday! 
I love Graphic 45 papers and since I just received the Nature Sketchbook collection, wanted to do a project showcasing the paper.   I thought this napkin fold card would show off one of the papers.  The base is a sheet of 12x12 bazzill paper covered with the Wildflower Bouquet from the collection.  Used a chipboard piece to complete the belly band closure.

When the belly band is removed, the card unfolds into this beautiful, colorful card.  The middle portion and the belly band are the back of the Wildflower Bouquet paper with one of the stickers and a dragon fly cut from the matching 6x6 papers.  The words are also from the sticker sheet; used 6x6 sheets for die cuts.

Thanks for stopping by.  Be sure and stop by 7 Kids College Fund store to see this paper and many more beautiful items.  Keep crafting.  Sandy

Gorjuss Girl and Friend

Merry Christmas fellow crafters.  Welcome to Dec 7 Kids Blog Challenge.
I have used a Gorjuss Girl stamp, colored her and her little fried with copic markers, placed her on top of a piece of plastic colored with alcohol inks.  I cut a wreath from Graphic 45 St. Nicholas paper Graphic 45 St Nicholas 12 x 12 Paperon my cricut, added red hearts instead of berries to match the hearts on her dress and some brads from my stash.  I placed the wreath on top of  Wycinanka chipboard, Wycinanka Elegance Bohemian Circle Frame, then put red lace on the back.
