Quick Quotes Christmas in July fun

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today with a Christmas in July project using Quick Quotes Paper and a few other fun items from my stash.  
To make this project I used a mixture of papers including Serenade (our new paper), Winter Bliss and Windsong.
To start this project I chose the paper I wanted to use. My base is from our new paper Serenade 4.25" x 5.5", I then cut another piece of the same paper at 4" x 5.25" so I could use the green flipside as my background. 
For the base that my sentiment is stamped on, and the stamped piece for the little girl I used Windsong paper, The sentiment piece is supposed to simulate carpet for the girl (colored with colored pencils) and tree to stand on. 
The tree is a die from my friend Kat, and I used Winterbliss to to cut the tree and flip flopped the pieces to get varied looks for each layer, and added a few metallic stars to finish it off. 

Please be sure to stop by and take part in this months Challenge 77 where the theme is Red, White and Blue. 

Thanks for stopping by, please come back again soon.

Quick Quotes Red, White and You

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today, it is the first Friday of the month and that means it is time to reveal the July Challenge. This month our theme is... Red White and Blue!

Be sure to stop back at the blog this weekend for the Challenge Winner Announcement for Friday Challenge 76 - "Masculine Cards or Projects".

I created a 6x6 4th of July project to sit on the mantel for years to come. 

Using Paper from several of the Quick Quotes sets I put this project together, and hope you enjoy it. 

Using Serenade QQP-SR103 I cut a 6x6 panel to cover my canvas.
Using Serenade QQP-SR102, Anchors Aweigh QQP-AW100, Adventure Awaits QQP-AD101, and a Pine Needle Die I ran each panel through my Big Shot and turned the cut upside down to simulate fireworks. 

I used my Canon Selphy to print a photo from our fireworks my husband set off this year. This machine is the easiest printer I have ever use. I just open the Canon Print app on my phone, choose the image I want to print and hit print. It goes to the printer and does its thing. 

I used Buttercup and Sunset Powderpuff inks to blend a sunset at the bottom of the 6x6 panel. I then used a small piece of the opposite side and stamped out Happy 4th of July using Royal Blue and Red Lipstick Powderpuff inks. I blended the Buttercup and Sunset along with Warm Grey over the top so that it would blend in with the background. This I cut with an oval die, and used foam dots to pop it up. 

I used double sided tape to adhere the fireworks, and the photo paper is actually a sticker.

I then found this flag banner that is leftover from a project my daughter did in middle school (11 years ago) and added it along the top. 

I really hope you enjoyed this project. I had a great time making it and again plan on setting it out each year.

Deco Foil and Stencils Oh My

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with a project I made for GinaMarie. This is my first time using Deco Gel and Foil and made a video showing the process. 

First tape down the stencil then stir the gel and spread nicely over your stencil. Remove the stencil and wash. Set the page aside to dry, Once your page is fully dry, add a sheet of DecoFoil over the page, place it in a piece of copy paper and run it through your warmed up laminator. When it comes out remove the foil and your card is ready to finish.

The base of the card is Recollections 110 lb cardstock in Gray.
The stamps are Altenew Build a Rose three step stamps that were included in a papercrafting magazine in 2016. I stamped these on Recollections 110 lb cardstock using Memento Dew Drops first layer Dandelion, second Layer Cantaloupe and third layer Tangelo. The outer edges are brushed with New Sprout. The Smile stamp came with the flower set as did the die. I stamped the word Smile using Memento Tuxedo Black. 

I hope you have enjoyed this project as much as I have enjoyed sharing it with you. Thank you and have a crafty day.

Where is your LIFE???

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with another two projects using vinyl from StyleTechCraft and Tape Technologies. I was browsing a group on FaceBook and there was a guy that was promoting his SVG files, really nice guy, and his files were free when you share his post via Twitter, FB or Google+. I have 2 files today that I was able to have fun with. 

Made using Gold #127

Made using Rose Gold, a new color

I really love working with vinyl and this Ultra Metallic vinyl from Tape Technologies is amazingly easy to work with. It cuts like butter with my Silhouette Cameo, and in three years it is the first vinyl I have been able to get accurate cuts matching the blade settings preset in the machine. Blade setting of 1, and I will also say, the blade is my original vinyl blade that I have had for 3 years. I have always used one blade for vinyl and another for paper, whether that has anything to do with it or not I am not sure. 

Color Chart for The Ultra Metallic Colors:

My husband is really happy with the new designs on the truck, Camping Life will be coming next for him. 

I hope you have enjoyed these projects.
