Baby Wipe Technique using Daisy Delight

Hi, Guys!!!
Happy Monday!!  How is your Monday going?  I am busy cleaning and doing laundry.  I found time to get into my craft room for a few hours today.  I made a couple of cute cards with one of the newest stamp sets releasing June 1.  It's called Daisy Delight.  It's such a cute little set.  Here are the cards I made today.

I used re-inkers and baby wipes to create these beautiful colors.  I used Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Lemon Lime Twist, and Powder Pink.  I put drops of each onto baby wipes.  I made a video showing you guys how to create this technique which I will leave at the end of this post.  This technique goes a long way and you can create many, many, many cards.  The re-inkers are really inexpensive and you do not use a lot of the ink for this technique.  The re-inkers cost $3.25 right now but as of June 1, they will be increasing by 50 cents.  If you were thinking of purchasing some re-inkers you may want to purchase them now before the cost increases.  Click here if you want to purchase them 
I hope you guys are purchasing your retiring favorites while supplies last!  Have you seen all the clearance items too?  Lots of great deals.  Click here for the retiring list!  Click here for the clearance list! 
I also wanted to tell you guys I am almost at Silver title with Stampin Up!!  I only need someone to join my team and I will earn my Silver title!  I am so excited!  Would you love to join my team?  I have so many things I offer to my team and my customers.  You get so many extras's if you sign up on my team.  We will hold team meetings and our own private facebook group.  We will get together and exchange idea's and I will give you tips on how to grow your team too.  Please join my team here.  We would have so much fun together!!

Paper Pumpkin

Hi, Guys!!!
Happy Tuesday!!  I hope you guys are enjoying your day!!  I am getting ready to take my little guy to Soccer practice but thought I would pop in really quickly because it has been awhile.  I have been so busy with all kinds of things.  My oldest is turning 13 on the 28th of this month so I have been busy getting invites made and they all were sent out today.  Here is what I created with my Cricut machine.
I created this from scratch with my Cricut.  I used shapes to create this and it was so super easy to make.  My son loves them and I guess that's all that matters.  I also sent out new Stampin Up catalogs out in the mail to all my customers.  I can't wait for them to get them and see all the new goodies that are available June 1st.  If you are not my customer (why not?? lol) and you still would like a new catalog please let me know and I will mail you one out for free.  You can fill out the form at the top of my website or send me an email at craftswithchris82414@gmail.com and request your free catalog.  Don't forget when you place a qualifying order you will receive a free card kit in the mail.  If you're now familiar with my Card Club click here
I also have been busy creating some cards with the new In Colors and the new stamp set Colorful Seasons.






These are so pretty and these pictures do not show just how pretty these In Colors are.  You can get some of the In Color items now with the Eastern Palace Suites.  These bundles are only available through May 31st and there are two bundles to order from.  Click here if you want to purchase these products.

Woodland Embossing Folder with Vellum Cardstock

Hi, Guys!!
Happy Monday!!  How was your Monday?  Everyone dislikes Monday but I am ok with Monday.  I guess because everyone goes to school and work and I get the house to myself again.  I do think when I was working a full time paying job I actually got more work done around the house.  I spent most of the day filming and editing my latest video.  I showed you yesterday the cards that I made using the Woodland Embossing Folder and the inking technique I used with it.  Here is a picture of another card I made using that technique.
I used Soft Suede and Early Expresso markers on the trees and also the Sentiment was stamped with Soft Suede ink using the Wetlands set.  It's a pretty fun technique.  I will leave the video on how to make this card at the end of this post.
Tomorrow I get my pre-order from the new catalog delivered.  I can not wait to play with everything.  Starting June 1 you will be able to order everything out of the new catalog.  If you want me to mail you a new catalog fill out the contact form up above and I will get you one out right away for free.
There are also a lot of great things retiring that you should purchase now before the are gone for good.  If you want to shop the retired list check it out here.  Don't forget about the clearance items too.  Check those items out here

Lift Me Up

Hi, Guys!!
Happy Sunday!!  How was your day today?  I hope it was great.  Our weather was not the best today.  Rainy, cold just awful.  We all spent the day hanging out doing our own thing.  I was in my craft room most of the day. It was nice to be in my zen lol.
Yesterday I was playing with vellum and made these awesome hot air balloons using the Lift me Up stamp set and dies.
I embossed these all with clear emboss powder.  I have a bunch of colors used here.  I then cut these out with the coordinating dies and colored these in with inks and blender pens.  I tried a variation of colorings and found that the blender pens worked the best for the colors I wanted.
I then inked a piece of whisper white card stock with some of our blue inks ( I really can't remember what colors I used).  The clouds were cut with whisper white and I used our Heat and Stick powder (which is no longer available) and Dazzling Diamonds Glitter to create the sparkle.  If you do not have these you can use the Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Paper.  I did not have any of that on hand so I created my own.  I then popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I used a piece of Rich Razzleberry Cardstock and trimmed the ends and made a tail.  I used the Thoughtful Banners stamp set for the hello.  I put it on an A2 card which is Pacific Point.  I love how everything went so well together.  Don't forget you guys have til June 1 to get the discount on the bundles.  I will leave a link to the Lift me Up Bundle at the bottom of this post.
The retired list is getting smaller.  So many things are gone and I hope you guys got them before it was too late.  The clearance rack is filling up.  Lots of great things are there.  I hope you check that out too.
I also just started selling my cards.  There is a link at the top of my website that will bring you right to PayPal to pay for a set of 10 of a variety of my homemade cards with envelopes.  The price is $35 and this includes shipping and tax.  If you order a set you will get a nice little package from me in the mail.  I have been asked over and over again why I do not sell my stuff.  People want to buy my cards so now you all have the opportunity to buy them.
I am also working on a video of a pretty awesome card I made using the Woodland Textured Impressions Embossing Folder.  Stay tuned!!  Happy Sunday!!
