Make it Monday

Today I took a break from sewing, scrapbooking and card making. I have an awful cold so I cuddled up on the couch this afternoon and crocheted! The hardest part was finding something to watch! Hopefully tomorrow I will be feeling better so I can get back to my list! I am dying to make a jelly roll race quilt top!  I have a boot topper pattern for sale in my Etsy shop!

Halloween Card

I made this cute Halloween card today using a Darice spiderweb embossing folder and a stamp from Art Impressions. These are two of my favorite companies to work with! Daric has so many craft supplies at bargain prices. I had to contact customer service a few months ago and they were wonderful! Check them out at your local craft store or Here.

Try to Dye

I have been wanting to dye my own fabric for awhile and I finally tried it! It was great! Time consuming but great. I love that I can have control over my fabric! Here is a photo of what I made.

I labeled each one with what I used. As you can see it really didn't matter if I used 1 or 2 cups of water. I thought using more water would give me lighter colors but not at a one cup difference.
If you would like to see how to do this please leave a comment below and I will make a video or tutorial!

Another TriFold Card and another Art Impression Entry

Why do I always have to do things in multiples? I made my first trifold card this morning and now, before I head to bed, I feel the need to make another! Oh well, here it is!

Art Impressions FUN FOLDS Challenge

I recently discovered Art Impression stamps and I have to say, I LOVE them! They have a wonderful Website and lots of ideas! As I was reading their blog this morning I came across a card Challenge! I am ALWAYS up for a challenge!

The challenge was to try a "Fun Fold". They give you a tutorial on how to make one but you can use any. They have created stamps specifically for folded cards! These people think of everything !

In honor of the Fall and Halloween approaching, I used one of my many new Art Impressions stamps and created this card. It is my first fun fold and it came out great!

Also, a big "thank you" to TheCraftyKitchen over at Youtube for her tutorial on how to make a fun fold card!
