MOJO Monday & Baby Wipe Technique

I decided to try a new technique tonight and I did a video to capture it. I was very happy with the end result. Why not use that as inspiration for this last week's MOJO Monday 466

Without further ado......


From this.......                                                                       To this......









I made a few different items when trying out this technique. I can't wait to get more reinkers so that I can try other color combinations.


How did I do it?????? Watch and see....it's just so easy. 




I hope you enjoy your day!

Happy Crafting

#WWYS80 // Swirly Bird

#WWYS80
What Will You Stamp #80
Swirly Bird
w/ a little Flourishing Phrases




This is the first time that I have done the What Will You Stamp? 

I've looked at the site several times. But finally I participated and in time too. Sometimes I do this on my own. I'll pick a random stamp set, and just say..."Nicole, make something with this". Kind of a fun way to use stamp sets that you forget about or set to the side. 



I really love this stamp set soooo much. It's so versatile. You can do background paper, designs, flowers, suns, birds, kites, sailboats, there are just so many options. It's crazy.

Teen Tuesday with Sara #002

Well with the end of summer vacation and the start of school, you can imagine some things got pushed aside. What you ask???? Well Teen Tuesday of course. Sara just didn't have time for it the last couple of weeks. Also my mom had hip surgery so we've been visiting her, she lives a couple hours away, so we've been up with her for a few weekends. 


But....tonight....Teen Tuesday with Sara lives on. 

A little Halloween Treat with Jar of Haunts from Stampin' Up!


Sara did such an interesting thing. This is a new stamp set to her, and she wasn't sure what she would like. She said that she tried out each of the stamps on a scrap piece first to see what she really liked. I've never done that, but I think it's a great idea.

Another thing I like that she did that I've never tried, is the Designer Series Paper all the way to the edge, but on a white card. I just love it!! Great job Sara!!!

MOJO Monday 464 & Jar of Haunts

FINALLY!!!!!!

I think things have slowed back down a smidge and I've had some time to get back to doing Mojo Monday. 

I had to take advantage of using some of the new things from Stampin' Up! that are in the holiday catalog. 

So....without further ado.....
MOJO Monday 464

             from THIS......                         to THIS!!!!!!
 



I did decide to also decorate the inside of the card with another new holiday stamp set called "Cookie Cutter Halloween". I love this stamp set because there is a Christmas equivalent and the gingerbread punch can be used for these Halloween items as well as the Christmas ones. 



I'm not a huge Halloween person, but I'm loving these new holiday stamp sets so much, I'm getting very inspired to do some holiday gift bags for Halloween with sweet treats for friends and family. 




Have a super amazing day
Happy Crafting :)
