This chunky beaver is too cute!

I really wanted to make my kids some bookmarks for all their summer reading.
To play up the bucky beaver teeth I used a Smile word die from MFT Stamps because I thought this sentiment I created was would be hilarious to my kids.


I wanted it to be really fun and chose to make it into a shaker bookmark. This was an great opportunity to pull out the Fuse tool and put it to work. In hindsight, I wouldn't have used the seed beads, as they are just to chunky (duh!) but they really make it a lot of fun.


The background I quickly ink-blended with some red-toned Hero Arts inks, in order to give it a little interest. Then out came my trusty Copics to do some quick colouring on the images. 


The finishing touches like the silver grommet and red ribbon tie it all together. My favourite part is this awesome tag die with the maple leaf. I know I will be pulling that out often, if not for just the maple leaf die.

Your next stop is with Amber Trubiak at http://foreverambersart.blogspot.ca/

Happy Happy Birthday Using Hooray & Birthday Balloons | A Muse Studio Guest Designer

|

I am Guest Designing for A Muse Studio again today!
You can check that out here.
I used two gorgeous sets and had a lot of fun!

I feel like Birthday Balloons is a set that everyone needs in their collection. Its classic shapes and the coordinating dies are awesome for birthday cards.


Using the balloons I did second generation stamping to make a subtle background. These high quality red rubber stamps are perfect every time and make this technique so easy.

I also used the sweet bear from Hooray and a sentiment. I think the gold embossing details make the subtle colours of this card really pop.



Thanks so much for stopping by and thanks to A Muse Studio again for having me! Stay tuned for more projects all month long.

Paper Lanterns & Hello Gorgeous | A Muse Studio Guest Designer

|



I am over the A Muse Studio blog Guest Designing, please go check that out here!


Today I am featuring the Paper Lanterns and Hello Gorgeous sets. 
I love a good rainbow and this was so much fun to put together.

The coordinating dies made this really simple and quick to put together.
I did some heat embossing in black and quick watercoloring with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers.


Popping them up gave it a fun detail and dimension.

Thank you so much for coming by, 
and thank you again to A Muse Studio for having me!
I will be sharing more projects featured on their blog all month long, so stay tuned!
