Hunny Bunny Onesie


TGIF!  Deb here with my first post for Sunsational Stamps.  As soon as I saw the Hunny Bunny digi stamp, I knew that I had to put it on a Onesie!





I changed the format of the Hunny Bunny stamp in my Silhouette software to make it a cutting files.  I then broke the file down into smaller parts so I could cut each section of the bunny separately.  I'm soo glad I have an enormous supply of HTV and Onesies, I didn't have to leave the house to purchase any additional supplies!

Any of Sunsational Stamps digi files can be made into cut files in many electronic cutting machines software.

Have a great day!  Hope you enjoyed my version of the Hunny Bunny digi file!

Sewing Mends the Soul




As part of the 2017 Canvas Corp Creative Crew, we were challenged to show our style of creating on a 4x4 canvas.  Since I love sewing, and collect vintage sewing items, this was the perfect theme,  I started with a Canvas Corp 4x4 stretched canvas.  Primed it with white gesso, then the fun began.  I used pieces of the 7 Gypsies Seamstress paper collection as my first layer.  Then I added a small piece of an old sewing pattern.  I splattered some metallic white High Impact paint as well as some Navy Glimmer Mist on the background.  On the chipboard dressform, I heat embossed the bottom half with Brutus Monroe Pure Silver embossing powder.  The denim dress is just a dress I cut out of Canvas Corp denim, and added some frayed layers on the bottom half.  The bottom layers were sprayed with Tattered Leather Glimmer Mist with some Navy Glimmer Mist added on the edges.  The bobbin is just s clear plastic bobbin that I cut in half and embossed with the same silver embossing powder.  Then I wrapped some  burlap pieces around the bobbin and let the excess fall where it may.  The thimble is from  the 7 Gypsies Seamstress Collection also.  Then I cut pieces of canvas and did my stamping.

Thanks for looking and have a great day!!

Faux Rusting




Hi there!  Today I will be sharing my faux rusting technique that I used on my pick-up truck card.  The items you will need most of you will already have in your home.  They are: craft paint, mod podge, cinnamon (yep the spice), and a heat tool.



Since I am rusting small things, I'm using a q-tip to apply the paint and a toothpick to apply the mod podge.  Of course for larger items, you would use a paint brush.  The first thing to do is apply some paint to your object.  The color you use depends on the look you want.  Rust has many color variations, so you could use black, brown, yellow, orange, terracotta....you get the idea.  

Once the paint is applied, sprinkle some cinnamon on the paint.  Use your finger to really push it into the paint.

 Next, apply a thin layer of mod podge over the paint/cinnamon.

 Now, using your heat tool, start heating the painted area.  You will see the mod podge start to bubble and the texture starting to form.  Heat until the mod podge isn't white anymore.  It only takes a few seconds!


If you want more texture, simply add more cinnamon to your object while it's still warm, then sprinkle with cinnamon again, then heat set it.  The more layers, the more texture!  This technique can be used on most any type of material. I have not tested it for outdoor use, so I'm not sure if it would hold up or not.


Thanks asking about the tchnique I used, and if you have any questions or comments, please leave them below!

Happy Fall!

Hope you're having a great day after Halloween!  I here to share a step card I created using files from the Scrappy Dew Vault.  I have found an amazing amount of great files the Vault!

For this card I used Sprinkled with Love (which is in the Scrappy Dew Vault), and the sentiment is from Squirrely Fun.  For the centers of the sunflowers, I used Stampendous Fragments in Copper.  I think it gives the flowers just the bling they need.  The background paper is from Canvas Corp.  if you've never tried their paper before, you need to!  It's heavy weight and they have a lot designs to choose from!

Happy Crafting!!
