"Production of time" altered can-woman


It's Aleksandra again with you today and I decided to make some more inspiration for you with Prima and Finnabair art supplies I had in my stash. I made an altered can-woman. I wanted to symbolize the time passing by from the old times to the new, modern times. I used paintbrush for the head of the woman as one of the oldest "inventions" and I made a can-woman out of it to symbolize the process of robotizing in modern age. I named my project as it fits - Production of time. She is holding a pen in one hand and a newspaper in other hand, again symbolizing old times with writing and modern times with mass printing. 

Hope you'll like my girl as much as I do. I also have today for you a video tutorial on my youtube channel so you can play a bit and make one of your own. All the supplies used in making that are available in 7 kids crafting supply store are linked bellow the photos.

Autumn Blessings

Amy here and it's time for my Tuesday 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card. I placed an order as soon as the new release from Stamping Bella hit the shelves and once those stamps were in my hot little hands I just had to ink some of them up. Tiny Townie Layla Loves Leaves completely stole my heart with all of her joy and exuberance and she needed somewhere special to live. So I masked her off and added the leaf pile and log from the awesome Little Bits Nature Collection set and finished off the scene with the Cave Kids Backdrop. I chose not to ink up the stream in the backdrop since I already had so much else going on and I love how such a simple change completely changes up the look of the stamp. I colored the whole scene to match the colors in this pretty Vintage Blessings paper from Simple Stories and I don't think you could ask for a more beautiful fall day than this.  :)   
Now don't forget the monthly challenge, there is still plenty of time to get creative. And because it is the special one year anniversary challenge the prize has been upped to an awesome $30 gift certificate!

Seize The Day!

Happy happy Monday, everyone! First off, a HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to Kelly and the 7Kids Craft Store! If you haven't joined in on the fun over at Facebook, it's been a serious par-tay. Kelly has been so generous with hosting contests and doing giveaways. Be sure to join in on the fun by searching for 7 KIDS Customers Create! 
Today I thought I'd share the card that I made for this month's Anything Goes challenge. You can find all the rules and details right here on this post.
My card features C.C. Designs Roberto's Rascals Viking Kids image:


I created the sentiment on my computer, because this little Viking gal looks like she's ready for a Monday. 😁 She was colored up with Copics, then placed with dimensional dots on to the die cut/sentiment paper. That beautiful sunrise is actually patterned paper that I discovered in my collection. Woohoo!
Come join in on the fun, this month's challenge is slightly different because there's an even bigger prize for the anniversary celebration! 💓 Here is the link to all the details, good luck everyone!

Beepin Awesome

We are having a special anniversary challenge this month 
  with extra fun and games in the 7 Kids Facebook page as well!

 
 You can find all the details about the celebration HERE.

As always the challenge is ANYTHING GOES and I wanted
to share my DT card with you today

 I used The Greeting Farm's Beepin Awesome stamp set
for the background and the sentiment. I embossed them in white embossing powder.
The boy is from The Greeting Farm's  Mega Mini Go Time stamp set.

I colored the background by blending several colors of Distress Oxide inks.
They blend so well!! Then I flicked water on it to create the cool distressed effect.  The two circles behind the boy were also colored with distress inks.  I  love how I can make my own colored paper to match :) It's BEEPIN AWESOME!!!!
Thanks for stopping by and don't forget to check out all the fun we will be having this week on the blog and Face book page. All info is HERE.
Happy Crafting :)
Michele

Have a sparkly day

Amy here and it's time for my weekly 7 Kids Your Crafting Supply Store card creation. These Fluffy Unicorns from The Greeting Farm have been sitting on my desk for a good couple months now. Every time I glanced at these fat and happy little unicorns they made me smile. So why wasn't I getting them on a card to spread that smile to someone else? I finally did just that and made sure the colors and papers were as bright and happy as this funny trio. I want to hug them and squeeze them and poke those little round bellies just like the Pillsbury Dough Boy, LOL! ;)  

Alrighty, well the August challenge just wrapped up but be sure to check back here tomorrow when September's challenge kicks off! Fun new stuff is hitting the store shelves daily and that $20 gift certificate that is up for grabs could really help to fill a shopping cart!

Hello, Good Looking!

Happy Monday everyone!I hope everyone is safe and sound this morning. It's Joni here with a card that I made, using C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps Roberto's Rascals Lumberjack Guys:

Isn't he a little charismatic cutie? One of my favorite all time patterned paper is wood grain. I am a total hoarder when it comes to it! I love using it for guy cards, simply add a couple of dots using any black pen, and it turns into planks of wood.

There is a set of 4 in this set, found at  7 Kids Craft Store:

I colored him up with Copics, then used a cute sentiment from the C.C. Designs Rubber Stamps Lumberjack Sentiments:

If you haven't shopped with Kelly, head over to her store right now and check out the amazing Clearance section that she has! It's a wonderful opportunity for you to try new companies, add to your collection of favorite artists, and experiment with fun new techniques.
Have a wonderful day everyone, stay safe out there wherever you are! 💓

Down the rabbit hole with Graphic 45 and Prima

Hi my dear crafty friends. Today I decided to bring you together two of my favourite brands ever - Graphic 45 and Prima or better Finnabair. I made my first ATC's ever. For those who are not familiar with the term ATC, it stands for Artist trading cards and are meant so that artist can exchange them between themselves. It's like a collectors kind of thing. Since quite soon there will be a Halloween time, I made 4 ATC's with Graphic 45 Halloween in Wonderland collection. I used a special, collector's edition bundle of that collection that is also available for purchase in Kelly's store. I also used some Finnabair rust and patina pastes and added some flowers. I made ATC's in which I cut a keyhole and colored them with rust and patina pastes and then embellished them. Hope you'll like them.












I used several products that you can purchase in 7 kids craft store:
