Going Batty Witch’s Boot

| Halloween, Sincerely,Rina, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hi Friends!

I am back today with my first Halloween project of the season. I have been wanting to make some Halloween projects but hadn’t found much time. However, the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers inspired me to get a move on.

This week’s challenge is H is for Pink Halloween! You can find all their challenges here.

So here we go! I whipped up this adorbs witches boot from Lori Whitlock. I got the file in the Silhouette store.

It’s not nearly as much pink as I normally would have liked but I love this paper. And the little bat ears have just the right amount of pink.

The collection is one of my own, Spooktacular Halloween. I embellished the shoelaces with a little witch’s broom. These are actually little broom sticks I bought for my sister’s Harry Potter baby shower repurposed for the perfect boot charm.

This boot is super cute. I added some ruffled crepe paper, light purple tulle and little bats to the inside. I also have a gold clothespin holding the word Spooky to the boot. That’s it for my embellishments!

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks so much for stopping by!

F is for Friends…who are troublemakers!

| card making, Sincerely,Rina, Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers

Hi Friends,

I’m back to share a project I created for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers #168- F is for Friends.

I am trying to use up all my scraps so this is a slim and small card. The card size is 3 1/2 x 5 1/2.

The paper collection is one of my own, Once Upon A Fairy, it’s one of my faves. The image of the women with groceries is from the Hungry Jpeg.

The sentiment I used is from My Favorite Things- Sassy Pants Best Friends clear stamp set.

I’m loving this little card. I left the inside completely blank and I used a ton of pop dots to create layers and pop out the images and background.

You can find this challenge and all there upcoming challenges at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers website.

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you enjoyed my project!

Mason Jar Box Card

| Birthday Card, Box Card, Silhouette, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends!

I hope you had a wonderful weekend! We spent time outside beautifying our yard…meaning I forgot to water my plants and they were desperately in need of water! LOL. My grandmother had a green thumb, I am hoping to get there someday, my struggle is over watering and under watering.

But I don’t have a crafting struggle!!! I am back to today with a Mason Jar Box Card that I made a birthday card.

Most of the design is from the Silhouette Design Store – Mason Jar Bouquet Box Card. I did add extra paper flowers that I had in my stash. I think they are flowers from Cricut Design Space.

I also add a tiny tag holder and stamped Happy Birthday on it. This is where I added space for a message.

I added some pearl accents, twine and a leaf ribbon for decoration. I also stitched the front of the jar with my sewing machine.

I hope you enjoyed my project and thanks for stopping by!

Day 6: 30 Day Coloring Challenge

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends!

Today I have my Day 6 cupcake project to share with you. You may be wondering, where is Day 5? Well, I actually haven’t finished that card yet! It’s in progress so will be coming soon.

I found that even though I colored the cupcakes in a certain order that my projects may be happening out of order!

Instead of cutting out my cupcake, this time I just colored the background with a blue caliart alcohol marker to make a super quick birthday card. Then I added some glossy accents to the strawberry, wink of stella and sequins!

I finished up with a blue rectangle with a vellum overlay for the sentiment.

As a reminder, I used the Colorado Craft Company Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake for all 30 days of the coloring challenge and I paired it with sentiments from My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments clear stamp set. I think this two stamps pair perfectly!

I hope you enjoyed my project & thanks for stopping by!

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Colorado Craft Company, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends,

Happy Sunday! If you are not following me on Instagram then you may have missed all 30 of my cupcakes. That’s right, I colored cupcakes for all 30 days!!!

And while it was fun and I loved using my alcohol markers (I have a mix of Spectrum Noir, Caliart, Promarker and Copics) as much as I did, I am glad it is over.

Here you can see all of my cupcakes!

Sincerely, Rina – 30 Days of Cupcakes

Right now I am working through all of my projects with these cupcakes. Some are going to be cards and a few I have my eye on for a birthday banner. I’ll continue to share my finished projects here…but it’s going to take me awhile!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Day 4: 30 Day Coloring Challenge & ALL Coloring up to Day 12!!

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends,

One more blog post today. This one has both my Day 4 coloring and completed card and ALL my coloring up to day 12.

First up, here is my day 4 card.

I love this little card! It measures 4 1/2 x 4. This is still the same stamp from Colorado Craft Company/My Sweet Friend but this time I stamped the bottom only and then drew the rest of the cupcake on the top.

I think this sentiment goes perfectly with this little cupcake or really muffin…lol. I also used a We R Memory Keepers star embossing folder to create the background.

Now here are all my cupcakes from Day 5 to today, Day 12!!! Cards will be coming soon!

Day 5

Day 6

Day 7

Day 8

Day 9

Day 10 & Day 11

For Day 10 & 11, I used the exact same colors. When I compare my chocolate frosting to Day 2, I am amazed at the difference. I really like how both Day 10 & 11 came out. Sometimes I think the strawberry looks better on 10 and the frosting looks better on 11 but then I swap. I don’t really know which I like better! But I can tell my coloring got better.

Day 12

And here we are at Day 12! I really liked the chocolate frosting so I decided to go back to yellow for some lemon frosting and really focused on shading. What do you think?

I think my strawberry and even the cupcake liner are way better on this last version also.

I have 18 more cupcakes to go! I cannot wait to see how my coloring looks by Day 30.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Day 2: 30 Day Coloring Challenge- My Sweet Friend Cupcake Card

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Birthday Card, Caliart, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things, Sincerely,Rina

Hi Friends,

I am finally back with my Day 2 finished card! I had posted the coloring of this cupcake with my Day 3 coloring & card but hadn’t finished the card but here it is.

It is a Double Z fold Card. This is my 3rd card with the My Sweet Friend Cupcake stamp from Colorado Craft Company.

It measures 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 when closed and when open it measures 5 1/2 x 11.

I used my Spectrum Noir and Caliart markers to color my image and then I added some Glossy Accents to give my strawberry a little sheen. I also added some tiny purple hearts with a stencil.

The inside of the card says “This Card is Sprinkled with Love” with space for a handwritten message and on the opposite side it says “Hello, Cupcake”. Both sentiments are from the MFT Sugar-Coated Sentiments stamp.

I also used the 2nd half of my Day 1 coloring to make a 2nd card.

It is a bit slimmer than the Day 1 card at 3 1/2 x 5. I decorated it the same way though with sequins and my stamped sentiment on Vellum.

My next blog post will have my Day 4 coloring & card and ALL my coloring up to day 12. Making the cards is taking a bit longer but I am definitely keeping up with coloring.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

30 Day Coloring Challenge/ Day 3!!

| 30 Day Coloring Challenge, Caliart, Colorado Craft Company, My Favorite Things

Hi Friends,

Today is Day 3 of the 30 Day Coloring Challenge that Katy Rac is hosting over at the DailyMarker.com. This is my first time participating in this challenge and I am loving it.

Admittedly, while I colored my Day 2 cupcake, I haven’t made the card yet! That is coming soon…

I did finish my day 3 coloring and the card. I just love so much how this one came out that I went straight to making the card. The card size is 4 3/4 x 5.

If you missed my day 1 post, I am using the same stamp for all 30 days. I am using the Colorado Craft Company- Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake. I decided to use this one for all 30 days because I so often buy a stamp and only use it once or twice so I decided to push myself to use the same stamp.

For my sentiments I am using the My Favorite Things Sugar-Coated Sentiments Clear stamps. I think this sentiment stamp is perfect match for the cupcake stamp.

I am also using a mix of alcohol markers. Today I used my Caliart markers for the strawberry and cupcake and I used my Spectrum Noirs for the frosting.

I used my MFT Die-namics Tag Builder Blueprints 5 to make the little tag for my sentiment and then I added some green and white twine for a pop of color.

I also added some Clear Glass Bugle Beads on the frosting for some little sprinkle like embellishing.

Hi Friends!

I am super excited to share I decided to try Kathy’s 30 day Coloring Challenge over at the DailyMarker.com.

I actually decided that I was going to use the same stamp for all 30 days and make 30 different card designs. Will it work? Will I get bored? Who knows??!!! But I’m going to try!

The stamp I am using is the Colorado Craft Company, Big & Bold: Sweet Friend Cupcake. I am also using the My Favorite Things: Sugar Coated Sentiments Stamp for ALL of my sentiments.

Today is actually day 2, but I am going to be behind in posting the actual finished cards.

So here is my Day 1 coloring & card.

And here is my Day 2 coloring. I will share the card tomorrow or I may batch cards and share 5 at a time.

There is still lots of time to participate. You can find the challenge here:

Alice in Wonderland Pop Up Card

| card making, Graphic 45, greeting cards, Pop Up Card

Hey Friends Hey!

I hope your Saturday is going great! I have a fun, fun project to share with you today. I am guest designing for the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers for the E is for Evil challenge.

Before I get to my project, I just have to comment on how much I laughed at this image. Every time I see it, I just laugh. LOL

Okay, okay. Now on to the project. I really like the Evil Queens for some reason, sometimes I think they are just misunderstood. You know, like in the musical, “Wicked”; the wicked witch is really the good gal.

For my project, my evil character is the Queen of Hearts. She’s on the inside of this super fun Alice in Wonderland card.

The paper I used is Graphic 45- Halloween in Wonderland. I love this paper and have been saving it for quite awhile.

And here is my fun pop up on the inside. I’ve been wanting to make a pop up for a mini album for awhile but decided to just jump into it for this challenge.

I love this card! I hope you enjoyed it to.

Make sure to play along over at the Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers. You can find all of their fun, snarky challenges here.
