#100DayProjectWithDanYellScraps Weekly update II + GIVEAWAY

#100DayProjectWithDanYellScraps Weekly update 2 


So after a brief pause in my 100 day projects (you know to have a baby) I am back with some cute tips, and projects. 

So let's get digging in and take a gander and see what I was up to this week!

Day 22 - Partial embossing border! How Cute is this?!?! You can check out the slide show video I created to show how this was done. I was inspired to create this watching GinaK via Stamp TV






Day 23


Today's tip - How many times have you sat down to create a card and BAM - you've creators block. Not on ounce of Mojo! Sometimes pinterest is nice, but you don't have all those awesome measurements, you have to GUESS! That's no fun.
So CTMH has this AMAZING set of How-To-Books. They are filled with cutting guides and samples! The particular book i am working from is called WISHES! As you can see here, I was able to cut my paper collection to create set of cards (20, 2 each of 10 designs to be exact)

Day 24

Day 24 of the #100dayprojectwithDanYellScraps 
Checkout my completed set of cards using the WISHES how to book - I created 20 cards! 2 each of the designs below! The wishes book took away that creators block and really helped getting that mojo going! 



I want to spotlight three of the cards from this set! These are cards are unique because - while stamping I forgot to include the word "YOU" So instead of cutting more white daisy and re-stamping - I added the "You" directly on top of the sentiments, in versa mark ink and then heat embossed it in CLEAR embossing powder - I am absolutely in LOVE with how cute these turned out!!! Just goes to show there is almost always a 'FIX' to every 'mistake' 😜






Here is a Quick video going over the cards, what I used to create them and a special GIVEAWAY!


Day 25

Wet Look Embossed Background! 

Another tip/technique inspired from Stamp TV

So here I took my Chevron Embossing folder and inked it with some versa mark! I ran this through my cuttlebug, and then sprinkled it with clear embossing powder! I did this with several embossing folders, using LOTS of my cardstock scraps. I now have LOTS of bases to play with while crating cards.


Thank you for stopping by!
Have a happy, crafty day!

    #100DayProjectWithDanYellScraps Weekly Update

    What happen this week...

    This week has been so much fun over on DanYellScraps facebook page! Seriously, I have posted all kinds of tips and tricks and techniques. Some I have just tried for the first time myself. Some are simple and well known, and others are just like say WHAT! Holly Crafting Batman, I had no idea that could be done! 
    I am so happy I took on this challenge - I encourage you to do the same! 

    So let's jump into the recap:

    Day One: Applying Ink to your stamps.

    How do you apply ink to your stamps? Do you take the pad to the stamp? Do you take the stamp to the pad? Do you tap, twist, rub, or wiggle the ink on?
    Here's my results - read all about it over at DanYellScraps Facebook Page

    Supplies Used:
    • Dreamin Big stamp set, 
    • retired gypsy ink, 
    • glacier ink. 
    • 2x2 blocks. 


     Day 2: Stamp Casting!

    Stamp casting is neat way to take your stamp and turn it into a 3D embellishment! 
    I used an acrylic stamp and also tried this with an embossing folder. 

    You can read the step by step over at DanYellScraps Facebook Page. 

    Supplies used:
    • Paper Towel
    • Water
    • Stamp - CTMH Wreath Stamp

     Day 3: Turning Stamp Casting into Artwork

    So now you have your stamp casting or embossing folder casting dry and ready to use on your project. 

    After misting my casting with some re-inker and allowing it dry, I ran it through my cuttlebug with a faux stitch die - i did this to help bind the layers together.

    #100DayProject With DanYellScraps

    4th Annual Community 100DayProject



    I had no idea this was thing, until yesterday! Have you heard about this, or participated? It is really huge over on Instagram. 
    This year there is a theme - "The theme chosen for 2017 is “Where Dreams and Darkness Meet”. The theme highlights the long, dark winters in our northern region which can be interpreted creatively in a number of different ways. The theme is meant to inspire – it’s up to participants whether or not they want to use the theme. Having a theme is just another way to engage in the project, change things up, and get the creative juices flowing."
    For DanYellScraps the theme will be a new project, tip or technique each day for 100 days. 
    A new Project, Tip, or Technique every day for 100 days
    Each day a new post will appear on my Facebook Page DanyellScraps  So make sure you like the page and follow along each day. 
    I will keep it fresh, and post the entire weeks projects, tip, or technique as one blog post each week.
    We will flow with card making, stamping, layouts, really anything that goes with papercrafting! 
    Some of these will be quick, and some of these will be work in progress! 
    Some of these will be considered a first draft in the creative process.
    The first Post on DanYellScraps will be 9pm Eastern - you can catch a Sneak Peak now. 

    I will see you over on DanYellScraps, and back here on Saturday to catch up on the week long projects. 

    Want to join me!?!?!
    Post all of your creative projects on my facebook page - I will add them to my blog post each Saturday!
