Hand carved stamps and something else I made. :)

I have a new addiction that goes right along with my scrap addiction. Hand carving stamps! I love it! Seriously it relaxes me. I used the Speedball Hand carving stamp set. Very easy to use and I really do think anyone can do this. So give it a try!

Featured artist!

Today I decided to try something new. I am wanting to start featuring other crafters for their work. So today let me introduce you to Ian.

Ian is a 7 year old cutie. He's also my son. ;) Today's art example is his Thanksgiving family project that he had to turn in for his 2nd grade class. Many members of our family helped produce it but to be honest it was mostly Ian and I. :)

So without further ado....

Ian's turkey features a number of art feathers.  We punched out some leaf shapes to spell out "Happy Thanksgiving" as well as our names.  The turkey has a necklace that features a drawling of Toothless from the movie "How to Train Your Dragon".  I found this completely adorable.   The bird's beck and that hangy thing that I'm too tired to google also has glitter glue on it to make it POP!  The feet have some dimensional help as well.  

That concludes our first featured artist and hope that you come back to visit us soon!  If you would like to be featured please send me an email with the title "Featured artist" to crazygal @

Thanks for stopping by!!

Halloween Banner

I’ve been slowing sticking my foot into the swap groups.  This past month Marie (ala ArtofMarie) hosted a Halloween banner swap. I’m sure most of you know how they work but for those who don’t.  Each lady/gentleman is assigned a letter.  They make enough of that very banner piece for everyone.  After the banner is done it should spell out something.  Ours spelled out Halloween.  But you couldn’t have guessed that. *chuckles*

So I was given the letter L.  There were restrictions to the size the piece could be but the bonus was to include the color black.  Not hard to do for Halloween.   I picked a Frankenstein shape for my chipboard.  I used my Cricut and a program that let’s me cut out svg files.  It turned out perfect! I then combined a combination of colors to make a nice bright almost neon green.  I applied a coat of acrylic crackle paint.  It turned out nice. 

IMG_2637 SEE!


I took some black cardstock and cut out some cut witches that I’d make have an awesome 3D look to them.  I also cut out some bats.  I took some orange cardstock with a pearl affect to it and made my letter L to place on top of a chipboard L of the same size.  I glued these all on.  I left some space at the top as we were instructed so people could hang their banner pieces.  I used some baby black rickrak to be my line and to add to Mr. Frankenstein.  :)



After that I applied some Studio G black glitter to his “bolts” These made him stand out really nice.  I also edged frank with some pitch black dabber paint by Ranger.  Over all I’m happy with the look.   Here is how he turned out!



Isn’t he cute?!


Once I received all of the pieces it was time to hang it.  I love how it turned out.  The ladies did an amazing job! I will make sure this is stored safely away so that I can use it yearly.  It really added that something that was missing.



See what I mean!
