Witchy Poo Halloween!

Hello, gel-a-tins fans! Jessi here, and today I am showing you another card using the wonderful Halloween stamp set, Witchy Poo! I am loving this stamp! There are countless options with this set!

Here is the card I made using the witch and bats stamps from the set:

Once I saw the flying witch, I knew that I wanted to create her with a full moon behind here. And to add some more details, I added the bats to the card. (Also, I added a foam dot to one of the bats to make it 'pop' of the card.

To finish the card, I added the sentiment.

Thank you for stopping by today! Please don't forget to join our blog and Facebook page to see more Gel-a-tins creations and to showcase your projects as well!

Have a great day!

Hallo-scream Fun!

I cannot wait for Halloween! Just a little more than one month! Yippee! So meanwhile, let's get in the Halloween mood by making a card with Gel-a-tins "Witchy Poo" Stamp set!  This set is so much fun to work with!

I started with the background of the card. The spider web stamp was perfect for just that. To form the background, stamp the image over and over to cover the area.


The next stamp was to use the banner image included in the Witchy Poo Set two times to make detail that goes across the bottom.  I fussy-cut the banner out and adhered to the card.

 The last step is to add the sentiment onto a banner and add to the card.

This card includes lots of layers and to make them pop, I used foam dots to the layers.

Thank you for stopping by today! Hope you find some time to create! We would love to see what creations you make using Gel-a-tins!

Have a great day!

Circles of Love for Lily Bee!

Happy Tuesday! I am excited to  share this card with you! I just finished it this morning and could not wait to share.

I love the Double Dutch Collection from Lily Bee Design and Spellbinders Circle Die-cuts:

I felt that the card needed some dimension, so I used foam dots on a few of the circles to make them POP off the card!
The sentiment is made using Lily Bee Alpha Stickers and a stamp from Stampendous. To finish the card, I added a couple brads and wrapped Trendy Twine around the bottom of the card.

Thank you for stopping by! Hope you have a great day!

Market Street BLOCK PARTY

So on this lazy Sunday, I managed to create a card for fun! It has been a hectic few weeks and it felt great to craft with no expectations! So I decided to join the September BLOCK PARTY at Market Street Stamps!

Using the Pawprints on Our Hearts stamp set from Market Street Stamps, here is the shaped card that I came up with:

I LOVE how this cute puppy turned out. I was attempting to use the back of the stamp to "color-in" the stamped image. But the stamp sort of caved in, resulting in the bare spot on the puppy's tummy. I thought that was a great look. So I found some paper with the light tan coloring and created this dog! The final touch was to paper-piece the ears.

The background is made using the pawprint stamp over, over and over again. Using Thicker letters, I spelled "WOOF" and used a small die-cut for the sentiment.

Trendy Twine Fun and Sticky Fingers!

Happy Wednesday, Trendy Twiners! How are you liking the Chocolate Sprinkles projects so far?  I know I have added some to-dos to my list of crafty projects!

So when I was told the which twine would be spotlighted this month, my first idea was I wanted to make a twine bowl. My craft room is done in the blue/brown color combo.  And I needed a small container to hold little buttons or embellishments for whatever project I am working on.

Well, lets just say after multiple tries, I finally gave up on that idea. But I still needed a container. So off I went to the craft store and came home with a small glass vase.  After several twirls of twine and globs of mod-podge, here is my project:

It is time-consuming, but very simple to make! To finish the project, I wrapped Chocolate Truffle Twine a few times around and added the button. Viola!
Don't you just love the Chocolate Sprinkles color combo?! I do! Don't forget there is a chance for you to win this lovely twine! There is still plenty of time to join our September Challenge! Get the details HERE!
Thank you for stopping today!

Yes, I know I said damask! But it shouts flower to me. Here is my card:
I choose do to the card in bright cheery colors. With it being a 'thinking of you' card, I figured it would brighten the recipient's day!

I absolutely love the quality of the Gel-a-tins stamps! It was so easy to stamp a crisp, solid image! To add another pop of color, I added yellow buttons to the 'center' of the flowers. The sentiment is stamped on a diecut and adhered using foam dots to add some dimension to the card.

Once again, thank you for stopping by today! I cannot wait to show you more project from this amazing stamp set!

I decided to use my Slice machine to cut out the onesie. To add some texture to the card, I added dry embossing to the bottom corner. To finish the card I wrapped a few buttons on the twine.

Gel-a-tins Wedding Fun

Hello, Gel-a-tins fans Thank you for stopping by today! We are switching it up a bit today. With the fall approaching, the wedding fever starts to spread. With that in mind, I am showing you a simple, but elegant wedding invitation using our damask stamp set.

This stamp set would be perfect for any formal occasions coming up. Are you having a dinner party for the holidays? Need to send out cute invitations, but don't want to spend an arm and leg for them? Why not make your own!

I shared this tip before, but to make sure the image stamped crisp, I first used Versamark ink and then applied the choosen ink color to the stamp.

Once again, thank you for stopping by today.
