Self Love Canvas Banner

Welcome! Peggy here and I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas holiday!
Today I would like to share with you a project close to my heart.  I am sharing some love to someone special just because...
Today's supplies used are : 
Canvas Banner
DecoArt Acrylic Paint
Faber Castell Gelato
Golden Molding Paste
Putty Knife
Golden White Gesso
Prima Embellishments
White Cardstock
Copic Markers
Fiskars Trimmer
Sookwang Double Sided Tape 

I prepared my canvas with white gesso before stamping and let completely dry.  I chose to stencil first. I used molding paste and colored it with acrylic paints then using a putty knife I stenciled the background using Susan's Doodle stencil. 
 Next I stamped images on to the background with blue gelato's and purple acrylic paints.
I stamped my words from the Journal Doodles with a Heart collection onto white cardstock and colored in using my copic pens.

I strung them all together using  a border stamp from the same collection vertically hung.
Using prima's natural bark shapes I colored and glued them in place.

I hope you have enjoyed my banner! Have a wonderful New Year!!


Christmas cards with my eBrush by Craftwell

Hello crafty peeps! Seasons Greetings!!
Today I would like to show you my Christmas card made awesome by my eBrush by Craftwell USA. 

Supplies used today are: 
Spectrum Noir/Copic Markers
Patterned/Textured Paper
double sided tape

I started by fussy cutting my paper to be eBrushed. I chose EB5 spectrum noir marker to eBrush my large background paper where only the edges will show. Then I eBrushed Red R37 copic marker on my already red textured paper. I only sprayed the edges.  Next it was the ornaments turn for color on the edges.  

The only thing left to do is put it all together with double sided tape. 
Here is my result: 

Thank you for taking a look!



Tags of Peace and Joy

Hello, Peggy here and welcome to my tags of peace and joy. 
today's supplies used are: 
Susan K Weckesser Stamps World Of Christmas
Memento Black Ink
Tombow/Copic Markers
seam binding
Embossing tools and supplies

I stamped both tag World of Christmas stamps onto white cardstock with memento black ink. Next I colored each tag with markers. I stamped JOY and Peace also from the same set and embossed JOY in gold and adhered down to some seam binding.
I added texture with embellishments using art ingredients bronze micro beads and beaded trim. I also used beads as a trim on her collar. 

Here is the next stamp in this collection (World of Christmas). I colored the tag with my tombow and copic markers and added the Merry Christmas sentiment from the same set and cut it out. I happen to have a small flower piece of left over G45 paper I added to the top of the tag. 

A fabulous set of Christmas tags and sentiments!

Ornament in a box

Hello good day to you! I would love to show you my ornament today from a recycled soap (dove) box using my eBrush from Craftwell USA.

supplies used today are: 
Sharpie Pen
recycled box
designer paper
double sided tape
pearl string to hang 
embellishments as desired

I opened a box from the soap I currently do not need. It smells great.. lol 
Then I cut out the front panel to give me a small shadow box. 
I covered my box with designer paper and adhered the paper with double sided tape. 
I made a small hole at the top of the box for a small light bulb to fit into. (bulb from the christmas tree I will hang it on)

I had a tag from a graphic45 collection that I fussy cut and then eBrushed the sides to give a deep green edge. 
I glued lace edging to the tag front. I also glued the tag now cut into a frame onto the front of my box
I fussy cut all my paper and decided a partridge was going to hang in the center of the box. I attached it with a pearl string. Next I added gold embellishments on the front corners and placed a ribbon on the top.  I placed this on the tree and pushed a bulb through the hole in the top and I have a lit ornament.  I hope you enjoyed today's craft tutorial made possible from eBrush by Craftwell.
