Bearing Gifts

Today I’m featuring my first Reverse Confetti stamp! I have always loved their images, so when DriveByCrafts started carrying them, I was thrilled!

This set is called Bearing Gifts; isn’t it just so cute? A bear driving a car! Hee hee!

I stamped the image with Copic-friendly ink, and colored it with Copic Sketch markers. I chose to make the car slightly 3D, by stamping the front end of the car again, coloring it, cutting it out, then mounting it with adhesive foam squares. I also stamped a couple of the trees and did the same thing.

The patterned papers are both from Lawn Fawn petite paper packs: Knock on Wood, and Perfectly Plaid. I die cut them out using older Lawn Fawn stackables die sets.

This set is just so cute, I can’t wait to use it again! Have a great day, and happy crafting!

Magical Unicorn

Hello Everyone, 
It's Ceal here to share with you today a card featuring the Magical Day set by Neat & Tangled. 
To make my card I started with a top folding note card and a frame cut out using some patterned paper that was sent to me in my last Drive by Crafts order. I love how Annette sends a little paper with your order. 
I colored the images using Chameleon pens and cut them out with the coordinating Magical Day Nice & Neat dies. The images are popped up to give it dimension. To finish the card I added some sequins.
I also stamped a greeting on the inside that says "Have a magical day."
