ThingsCrafted Grand Opening Blog Hop

Welcome to the ThingsCrafted Blog hop. You should be arriving from visiting Kelly Marie Alvarez at the Lawn Fawn blog. If you're just joining us on the blog hop, you can head over here to the ThingsCrafted blog to start from the beginning!

A little background on ThingsCrafted: ThingsCrafted is a place where handmade design and customization come together to create a wonderful company who creates and encourages color, personality and community. ThingsCrafted was founded by Britta Swiderski, a designer with a background in the world of papercrafting and a history of working with awesome graphic design clients. ThingsCrafted provides custom products - starting with stamps - to suit your lifestyle all starting with handwritten designs. They all go from pencil to computer to your doorstep! We love to create stamps and designs for addresses, "made by"s for the projects you send to others, favorite phrases or shapes for project life and planner organization and so much more. 

I ordered a custom address stamp for my little family and since the queen of the house is our dachshund Penny that was what I requested to be incorporated into my stamp. :) My stamp is the Small Square size. 


ThingsCrafted also offers some pre-designed stamps for those that want to try something new and handmade but don't have a particular need for a custom stamp. I used the Fond stamp on this card. 


Here are links to the other pre-designed stamps at ThingsCrafted.

Little Tangles Challenge: Giving Thanks

Today I am happy to be contributing as a guest over at the Little Tangles challenge blog.  It has been too long since inking up some Neat & Tangled lovelies so I was excited to be asked to join in.  The theme this challenge is Giving Thanks.  How very appropriate for the upcoming holiday next week!


I white embossed the sentiment and details from Be Full on water color paper that was die cut with a stitched rectangle die.  Then I did a little watercoloring to create the background. I used Rusty Hinge Wild Honey and Scatter Straw distress inks with some water to create the fall colors.


After the panel was dry I matted it one  a piece of white card stock.  I used some cream colored burlap twine around a kraft colored card base then popped up the sentiment panel with foam adhesive.

Check out the other cards on the Little Tangles Challenge blog and play along!

Fall & Winter Candle Holders

Today I have a project that is not a card! There is a video showing how I made these candle holders over on the Lawn Fawn blog today or on the Lawn Fawn YouTube Channel. I created these easy candle holders with colored tissue paper and Mod Podge. This project is very easy and is fun to do with kids too...would make nice Christmas presents don't you think?


For the Fall candle holder I used torn pieces of tissue in yellow and orange for the background and cut red tissue paper with the stitched leaves dies from Lawn Fawn.  The winter one uses the stitched snowflake dies cut out of various shades of blue over a white tissue background. I used sparkle Mod Podge to cover the winter one for a bit of sparkle.


Here is a picture of them lit up in the dark.  Check out the video on the Lawn Fawn Blog or the Lawn Fawn YouTube channel HERE.

A Very Fawny Holiday: Bows & Holly Goodie Bag

Hello! I'm back for another day of Fawny Holiday goodness.  It's A Very Fawny Holiday Week on the Lawn Fawn Blog so join us for a week of holiday cheer and inspiration.  Today I have a little gift bag and card using Bows & Holly.


I used the Goodie Bag die and created a bag from some kraft card stock.  The images from Bows & Holly are colored with colored pencils blended with gamsol.  The Argyle Backdrops are stamped with red pigment ink for a vibrant background pattern and I finished off the goodie bag with some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.

Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn Blog today and all week long for more projects from the Design Team as well as girls from Lawn Fawn Headquarters and Lawnscapings Challenges.

A Very Fawny Holiday: Pa-Rum-Pa-Pum-Pum

Hello! It's Fawny Holiday Week over on the Lawn Fawn Blog! It's a whole week filled with holiday cheer and inspiration to jump start your holiday crafting.  Today I have a project to share using the new Snow Day papers along with an older holiday stamp set Pa-rum-pa-pum-pum.


I used the stitched rectangle dies to cut and layer some of the papers from the Snow Day Petite Paper Pack.  I picked the music paper because I thought it was appropriate to go with the cute little drum and I just love the snowy pattern too.


I cut a scalloped circle from vellum and sprayed it with Glitter Dust spray to give it some sparkle and layered it behind my drum.  I used Argyle Backdrops on my Candy Necklace colored card base.  I finished it off with some Peppermint Lawn Trimmings.  I added a bit of gold Wink of Stella to the drum sticks and clear Wink of Stella to the rims of the drum.  Even cute drums need some sparkle too.

Be sure to visit the Lawn Fawn Blog today and all week long for more projects from the Design Team as well as girls from Lawn Fawn Headquarters and Lawnscapings Challenges.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Joyful Buttons

Today I have another card I made after playing with the My Favorite Things stencils.  I used the Petal Pattern stencil along with Wendy Vecchi Gold Embossing paste on pattern paper to create the background panel.


I used the same stencil on the card base and applied white pigment ink to the kraft card base.  I picked out some red buttons to add to the pattern and added a simple sentiment on matching red paper.


Thanks for stopping by today!
