Hello everybody!!!!! New challenge at digi Doodle Shop this week, and and and!!! good news! I can add links to my posts again!!! WOOHOO!! I was thinking about getting new blog! So glad this is fixed! So here is my card for our challenge , if you look closely you can see "little artwork" of my 2 year old on this card! She drew little line on the baby's hand with magic marker! I really liked this image so decided to use it anyway. My 2 year old is a little monkey, she closes the door on my craft room and quietly tries to "craft" when she doesnt think anybody knows she is there! LOL I try to keep my important stuff away from her reach but sometimes I just can't catch everything.
New challenge at Stamptacular Sunday ! This week we want to see Christmas Glitz. Here is my card for this challenge.

Today I have a new project for you!!! I made this candle today! I love it! This is so easy and so much fun! The hardest part is to colour the image on the tissue paper. I used this wolf image from Digi Doodle Shop. Well I love wolves, but this could be a great gift for any wolf lover teehee!

OK I totally forgot to post my card for our new challenge at Tickled Pink stamp challenges (I should get my brain back by Sunday evening LOL, then I will have a minute to breathe and relax).
So this week we have a sketch for you at Tickled Pink stamps, please come on over and check it out, it's an awesome sketch by Kellie Winnell I got to use Kira image, I love it so much!!!! And yes, I coloured the little bit of her wing with hair colour because at that point I thought it was hair teehee.
Hello friends! Today I would like to show you how you can make necklaces or embellishments from your favourite stamps using shrink plastic! Supplies needed:
Your favourite stamp
Copic markers (I think colour pencils work as well, my kids used them on their matte shrink plastic, I used the shiny clear shrink plastic so I would say only markers would work on that)
Hole punch (if you are making necklace out of them)
String, beads (if you are making necklace)
1. I stamped my images on the sheet of shrink plastic, I had few sheets sitting around without instructions so I was pretty much guessing as I went. I used Palette ink, it's a hybrid ink pad, it said it was OK to stamp on glass or shiny surfaces as long as it was heatset afterwards. I think if you use staz-on ink pad you dont need to heat set.
2. Here are my stamped images on the shrink plastic. After I stamped the images I cut them out fairly close to the image, but it's not really necessary because when it shrinks that space around the image shrinks as well. 3. I coloured my images with copics. I coloured on the other side of the stamped image because I chose not to heat set my ink, since this will be baked in the oven. I punched the hole at the top of the image (I made these necklaces for my daughter's birthday party). 4. I lined my cookie sheet with aluminum foil (just to be safe and not wreck my cookie sheet) and placed the shrink plastic images on the cookie sheet. I heated the oven to 300F. and baked the images for 2 minutes. 5. This is what the image looked like when it was baked. 6. Little comparison of images before I baked it and after it was baked. 7. I added 2 jump rings to the hole in the finished piece with pliers. I placed the finished piece on a string (it's leather cord) and added few caps and beads and knotted the cord. 8. Here are more images I made into necklaces for the party. 9. Images after baking. 10. Finished necklaces.
Well that's it!!! This was very easy and very addictive! You dont have to use them for necklaces, if you dont punch the hole you can use them as little embellishments on your cards or projects.
I tried to use heat gun on some of them, but it's not for me! LOL. it's hard and scary when it starts shrinking, and I burned some. So baking was the way to go for me!
Hope you enjoyed it and have fun if you choose to try this!
My name is Martina. I am SAHM to 5 great kids, in my free time I love to make cards, stamp, read books, go to gym, and try new things. There is way more stuff I like to do, but it would be a novel if I wanted to name them all LOL.
Hope my creations will inspire you. Thank you for visiting and for all your lovely comments.
