7 Kids Crafts: Beary Merry Christmas

Hello Crafty Friends,

I hope you're having a lovely day. Today I decided to work on a Christmas card using this 'beary' sweet stamp. You can find a wide selection of Dreamerland Crafts stamps here.
This Dreamerland Crafts stamp is called Beary Merry Christmas, the die is called Snowy Sky Scene Die by Hello Bluebird and the snowflake paper is called Winter Wonderland by Doodlebug Designs and the sentiment is by The Greeting Farm, Secret Santa stamp kit. To give the snow some depth I used Distress Oxide Speckled Egg. If you shop at 7 Kids Crafts use this code at checkout for a special discount:  GRSWYCSUFB

7 Kids Crafts: Many Thanks

Hello Everyone,

I think I'm getting hooked on making slimeline cards, they are perfect for cash, for a check or just to write a long-winded message like I like doing sometimes. heehee For my card I wanted to make it look vintagey (I know that can't be a real word) but with a pop of color. I colored the Stamping Bella Daisy Squidgy with Caran D'Ache Water-soluble colored pencils. On top of the dried watersoluble color pencil/watercoloring, I then used a little bit of Polychromos to add depth. The slimline die is by Mama Elephant called Creative Cuts, Slim Card Basics. The letters that form the word "many" come from the Altenew set that I've been hoarding for a while called Tall Alpha die.

7 Kids Crafts: Make Waves

Hello Everyone! I hope you're having a fantastic day.

Today I worked on a card featuring this pretty mermaid by Maria Medel who has done these stamps exclusively for 7 Kids Crafts Store. This set is called Making Waves. I colored her with Karin Brushmarker Pro and a little bit of Polychromos. The Slim Card Basics die is by Mama Elephant. There are also some fun slimline dies by Whimsy Stamps in the store.

When I think about Slim Line cards I always think about money envelopes so I think
they would be a fun way to give a cash or check as a gift.
