Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today joining the Summer 2017 Coffee Lovers Blog Hop with Sunsational Stamps.
#summer2017clh To see the rest of the team's project please go here

My project today is using the Love You Latte  digital image set.  To make my project I used my Silhouette Cameo software to trace the images, make the lines black and shrink to the size I wanted to use. I then filled the page size of 6" x 6". I sent this to my HP printer and then went to work.
My card base is Recollections 110 lb card stock A2 size. I then used K&C Company Pastels Color Basics card & Mat pad which I cut down to 4 x 5.25. I cut the panel I printed to 3.5 x 5.25 and used double side tape to adhere it all. 
The sentiment I cut using my paper trimmer.

Joy Clair Land of the Free Home of the Brave

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here with my contribution to the Joy Clair Patriotic Blog Hop. 

I chose to use images from both sets the Flag and the 4th of July to complete this banner which is now hanging on the inside of our front door for all to see that drives past. 

To complete this project I stamped the flag 3 times using my stamp positioner so that I could restamp as needed to give good coverage. This is a big 4x6 stamp so that made life a bit easier having the positioner so that it would restamp in the same place each time. 

I then cleaned up my mess and started with the 4th of July stamp set, and stamped the larger Firework first and used WOW embossing powder and heat set it. I then stamped the smaller fireworks and heat set them with Silver embossing powder. I followed that with stamping the sentiments using Black Onyx Versafine Ink. Once I was sure everything was dry I used a tag die to cut out the banner images I had stamped, and then used my paper trimmer to cut the backgrounds a 1/4 inch larger all around. I used my hole punch to make 2 holes in each panel and strung it with some white ribbon lace. 

I hope you have enjoyed this project, be sure to hop along and see the rest of the teams projects and how they made them. Leave a comment on each blog and you will be eligible for a $25 gift card Joy Clair Gift Card.

Quick Quotes Fathers Day Mini Album Fun

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here with a Fathers Day project that let me just say, I started it three times before finally coming up with a plan I really liked and wanted to share. One of these days I will have to do a bloopers post. 

SO, Fathers Day was just a couple days ago, however I will not see my son in law until today so it worked out perfect with timing. 

I used the Quick Quotes Club Q June Anchor's Aweigh Collection to make this project and now I really love it and have to make another for myself. What was really great about this project is it gave me the opportunity to use my Canon Selphy printer again, and I love doing that. 
The first thing I did was grab all the pre-made tags from the kits, this made it easy to start as part of the work was complete. I do have tag dies so I could have made them myself, but hey... I'll do that for the next one. 

 I then used Anchors Aweigh QQP-AW100 and cut 2 strips that were each 3 inches high and 12 inches long to serve as the backing for the tags. I liked this paper as it has the really pretty aqua blue on the one side and a pretty sea shore design on the other. 

From there I grabbed my Joy Clair "Father's Day" stamp set and cut a white panel to put in the inside, and then stamped "Happy Father's Day" using Royal Blue Powderpuff Chalking Inks

I used a number die set to cut out the numbers 2017 and used my Xyron X to adhere them to the appropriate pages.

The chipboard sentiment is from AW802 Chipboard Set.

The Happy Happy Happy sentiment is from the Anchors Aweigh QQP-AW500 sentiment sheet. 

I hope you have all enjoyed this project, it was a fun one to make and hopefully my son in law will like it as well. He is in the Coast Guard and this Nautical Themed paper is perfect for projects I can make for him. 


Non QQ Items Used:
Joy Clair - Father's Day
Xyron X
Ms. Sparkle & Co. Double Stick Tape

Sunsational Fun with Fireworks!!!

Greetings friends and fellow crafters, LeeAnn here today with my Patriotic Inspiration. Fourth of July is coming up and making cards for the local recruiters office, I figured why not get busy. So, using Sunsational Stamps Digital Image called Fireworks Couple I decided to get busy. First I set up my printer to make 4 sets, then used my Scan n Cut to cut hem all out leaving a slight border. I do this so that I can file the extra images away for later use. 

In order to make my card I use Distress inks in Peacock Feathers, Mustard Seed and Seedless Preserves to make the background, Layering, smoothing and then let it dry. I then cut this panel to 3.75" x 5". I cut a white panel at 4" x 5.25" and my base is A2 size of 4.25" x 5.5". 

Today I used a combination of Spectrum Noirs and Bic Mark-Its as well as Sharpies and even a Wink of Stella and Luna to complete this project. 

I hope you have enjoyed this project. If you haven't checked out this months Challenge, please jump on over HERE to link up your project, our theme for this month is SUMMER. 

Dockside Fun with Dare 2 Be Artzy

Greetings friends and fellow crafters. LeeAnn here today as a guest designer with Dare 2 Be Artzy.
Today I am going to be using the On The Dock stampset to created my project.
For my project I used the Dock image and the Subway Art sentiment, I thought they would go great together.
To begin, I used my stamp positioner to stamp the dock in the lower left corner, I then turned the stamp around and used a little masking tape to not stamp over what I already did, and stamped the image again, lining up the best I could to have the dock extend off the edge of the paper. Using Mermaid Lagoon distress ink I colored the background in a sweeping motion direct from the pad to create a lake type view with high and low spots.
Using Rusty Hinge distress ink I colored the dock running off into the water a bit to give a reflection.
Finishing up I used Memento Black to stamp the sentiment.

I'm not sure about you but this makes me want to head off to the lake right now, if only the boat wasn't in the shop.

Thank you for coming by, please come again soon.
