Let’s take a look at my resin wooden coasters:

Now that summertime is here, eating and drinking outside happens more often. Having super coasters are a way sure to please your guest.

I used the new Altenew Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set to create these coasters.

Here’s how to create these coasters:

Paint each coster in the colors of your choice. Let it dry.

Stamp each sentiment from the Graphic Brushstrokes Stamp Set in the center of each coster using black ink suitable for wood.

Prep and prepare resin following the instructions in the box.

Pour the resin in the center of each coaster almost to the edge of the circle.

Add some glitter to the leftover resin. Use a popsicle stick and spread the glitter where you want it to be.

Wait 15 minutes then use a heat gun to clear out the air bubbles that will form.

Let each coaster dry overnight.

Christmas – Where Creativity Meets C9

Hello everyone!!  I’m here today with the Where Creativity Meets C9 Blog Challenge Design Team!! Our challenge this month is Christmas!!

Take a look at my tag:

For this tag, I used Concord & 9th Ornamental Dies. I die cut three red pieces and one white piece.  I used the additional die pieces to emboss the front of one of the red pieces.

Once all of the pieces are cut, put the ornamental tag together using Tombow Xtreme Adhesive.

To finish the tag off, add some glitter to the front of the tag and add sweater ribbon.

Lets take a look inside.

I love how this tag turned out!!  Nice and simple!!

What do you think?  Please let know below.

I can’t wait to see how you interpret our challenge theme this month.

winter

Take a look at my card:

For this challenge, I used one of my favorite stamps sets from Concord and 9th for 2016, Cozy Up!

These warm winter socks are perfect for the winter!!  I love wearing thick comfy socks in December!!  It adds to the holiday feel!!  LOL!!

All I did was stamp the image 4 times using Clearsnap Colorbox Wicked Black Ink and colored it with a limited edition of Caran d’Ache Discovery Set Watercolor Pencil in Cobalt blue and used an ADORNit watercolor brush to spread the color!!

Once the watercolor dried, I used a glue pen and added Ranger Distress Rock Candy Glitter to the top of the socks.

Nice and easy.

Here is how I created this card:

  1. I die cut my snowman out of different colors of paper. I put the snowman together.
  2. Then I draw a hill line on my cardstock.
  3. I stamped The Ton Stamps Holiday Lyrics using My Favorite Things Hybrid Ink.
  4. After that, I place Simon Says Stamps Stencil Falling Snow  on top of the cardstock and layered Wendy Vecchi Embossing Paste.
  5. Before the paste dried, I sprinkled some Distress Glitter Clear Rock Candy on top of the snow to give it some sparkle and shine.

Super fun to create!!
