Pocket Letters

I am sure many of us who love to craft  have heard of the newest craze out which is Pocket Letters. It is like a combo of collecting, doing ATC, craft swap and being a pen pal all in one. 

The basic format is to create ATC (artist trading card 2.5 x3.5) sizes and use a 9 page trading card page protector. You create each mini card and then add it to the protector. Behind each card you put a small craft product (buttons, twine, gems etc) and then in one pocket you put a letter to your pocket pal. 

This is the one I created for one of my pocket letter pals with a Crafty Sentiments.
 
Such a creative way to use up scraps, RAK someone with goodies and make more crafty friends.  If you are interested in doing a pocket letter the founder of this idea, Janette Lane, created a website called Pocket Letter Pals and people around the world come together and set up swaps with other people.
 
Maybe I will see you there!!
 
Happy swapping

Thinking of You

Happy Saturday!  This is Julie, from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers with you today. I am using an always charming Crafty Sentiments Designs stamp.  This one is perfect for a warm spring day...
Isn't she sweet?  This is rubber stamp, Primrose - Garden Flowers.  I colored her with Copic markers, then cut her out with a Spellbinders die.
I love shaped cards.  I think they add that extra little something to your card.  I cut this one out on my Silhouette.
The daffodils are in bloom where I live, so Primrose is right in fashion!  Love her sweet hat and boots!  You have to check out this rubber stamp and so much more at Crafty Sentiments Designs!

Thinking of You -- a Tutorial

Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers with a Copic tutorial to share with you.  I'll show my technique for two-toned flowers using Copic markers.
I used the delightful Crafty Sentiments Designs rubber stamp, Sweet Butterfly.

This is the start of the two-toned flower.  I have a few petals blended with Copic markers, using Y02, RV02, and RV04.
Start at both ends of the petal, flicking towards the middle to blend the colors.  It will take several times to get the perfect blend.
This is the first time the two colors are mixed (picture below)
This next picture shows the colors after I've blended the petal several times.
Here's another example --first color applied
The colors are laid down (below), but not yet blended very well.
Now, the colors are blended together!
The flower is complete, and the whole Sweet Butterfly rubber stamp has been colored.

Please check out this blog regularly for more wonderful creations from a talented design team.

Hello

It's Julie here today from Muddy Paws & Inky Fingers. I can't believe I'm now 1/2 way through my 6 month guest designing gig here at Crafty Sentiments Inspirations.  I am having so much fun!
Today, I am featuring the sophisticated Lola.  
This is Lola - You're the Best.  She is a digital stamp.  I made her big, so she would be the focus of the card.  I colored her with Copic markers, then used a couple of dies to cut out the image and back it.  The tag is also a die.  
If you enjoyed this image of Lola, check out the other ones in the Crafty Sentiments Designs store.
