Crafty Chicks Love

Crafty Chicks

Welcome to the Crafty Chicks February Blog Hop!  We are a group of creative gals who met on the web and decided to come together and share our passion for paper crafting with you.

If you are coming from Heidi’s blog, welcome!

Since Valentine’s Day is just around the corner I thought I would make a Crafty Chicks Love mixed media piece.  I started with a 12″X12″ canvas and covered it with a vintage pattern and added some chevroness with a stencil.

 Then I cut up 9 3″x3″ pieces from different patterned papers and added a couple different blues in paint with my “Hearts all Over” Penny Black stamp.

 This piece certainly isn’t lacking any hearts as I added Donna Downey’s foam heart stamp with black paint then created another one with a vintage zipper I had laying around.  The zipper was a bit fussy on the curves but just make sure you really soak it with medium or Mod Podge to get it down.

 Then one more heart in the hand of this lovely who I found in a Cosmo Cricket Element Deck.  I finished it off by stamping the word love onto it.

Here it is in it’s entirety.  It is now available in the store for anyone wants to take her home.

Crafty Chicks Valentine “Bee Mine”

Crafty ChicksWelcome to the Crafty Chicks Valentine Blog Hop!  I have just become part of the Crafty Chicks group and I am pretty exciting.   They are a group of creative gals who met on the web and decided to come together and share our passion for paper crafting with you.  Each month there is a different theme and this month it is Valentines.  If you are coming from Scrappin’ Madge’s blog, welcome!

I thought I would make some wee Valentine’s Day cards for my project.  I decided to use a Webster’s Pages gorgeous postcard set for the base of my cards.  Actually, all of the paper products for this project are from WP.

I just took the postcards and folded them in half.  From front to back, they are so pretty.

I used a cheapy bee stamp I got at Micheals with black ink on patterned paper and punched it out with a 1 3/4 inch circle punch.

I then cut a small strip from the same paper and inked the word mine on it.  Both were applied with pop-up dots to a different patterned card stock (which I rounded the corners and inked first).

I also tied a little baker’s twine before attaching it to the cards.

I kept the inside simple, with just a little “For You” and the date.  So there is lots of room to write some sweetness.  I will have a few sets of these available in the boutique.

I also quickly whipped up a normal card to give you an idea of what else you could do with the same idea.
