August 29th Stay Crafty @Home Blog Hop by LeighSBDesigns!


This is a 2 month long "Anything Goes" hop that ends September 25th at 11:55pm pacific!  Leigh's blog hops are stress play when you want and how much you want!  All the details are HERE at LeighSBDesigns Inspiration Blog!  The linky party is there, too! 😉  I have been watching tons of Youtube videos and blog hopping and seeing some awesome techniques with die cuts and embossing folders.  Which led to me wanting to buy a TON of die cuts...well, you get the picture!  But I decided to make do with what I already have and experiment a bit.  Here is my first experiment using one square die to copy a look  I saw on a video.

I used Ike's Art's adorable Cubimals on this festive Christmas card!  I actually used two of the die cuts: one to make the windows and added another to that one for the frame.  I colored up the cuties with Spectrum Noir markers and added some shine with Golden high gloss medium and some shimmer with a Nuvo pen.  Never one to waste anything (classic definition of a hoarder I do believe!) I put some gold foil alphabet stickers on the panels left from the frames.  The patterned paper is from a pad I ordered from Hobby Lobby.  That went on some white cardstock and Ho Ho Ho it was done!  I hope everyone is enjoying the blog hop with Leigh as much as I am!  Tell a friend or two or three and come play!
