Testing out some new products

I am so excited to be here with you today! Not only do I get to play with the amazing Victorine Originals and Raisin Boat stamp sets, but today I'm also going to show you some of the awesome other products that have now been added to the online store! As soon as you're done reading this post, head over there and get some - you won't be disappointed!

I had a page kit that I needed to put together, and I knew that these new products were the perfect match.


The first product I used was the Memento Dew Drop 4-pack of Inks. The dew drop shape is so handy for inking all the edges of whatever shape I had. It made quick work of my duck, rain drop and water splatters. I used colors from multiple sets as I like the ink to coordinate with the paper.

When I make a page kit, the layout just looks so much better when I doodle or outline the elements and the pictures.

I think this layout is even one step better because I outlined with the super cool Kirarina Wink Glitter Markers. I think I must have all the colors now!


I went around the edge of the duck, but then I added some squiggles (technical term there) to certain parts to give the duck more life. With the rain drops and splatters, I used multiple colors to make the water "reflect" the duck. I also outlined all the letters in the title and around the pictures.

Can you see (believe) how well these glitter pens do on EVERY color of cardstock and patterned paper I tried? It was amazing! I am totally hooked. Go visit my Halloween Mood Board creation to see how they pop off the page when used on black cardstock - it's amazing! (Link is below)


After assembling my layout, I added one extra perfect product for this layout! To make the water seem more realistic, I used the blue Pearl Pen to put water droplets all over my page! Look closely and you can see some on the water splatters and the duck.




I hope you enjoy this layout as much as I do! May your day be full of crafty goodness!

Boo! from me....

Hello & Happy Thursday Everyone!
Theresa here from Theresa's Crafty Creations
and it's my day to take over the blog!!

YAY for me... 🙌

I thought I would show you a FUN
Halloween Treat box I made for my son -

He's to old to go trick or treating (according to him)
 so I thought I would surprise him with a treatbox
that he can enjoy without leaving the house! LOL





I thought the Vampire was perfect for my son!
 I'm using the totally adorable Halloween Kids Stamp Set 
there are (6) different images in this set and a couple
different sentiments as well -- they're all so cute! - 

I started out with some Scrap Halloween Cardstock from DCWV
and a treat box die - The box was pretty simple to make
I needed to cut 2 halves out and adhere them together
to make the box - both sides have a little window so
I put 2 tiny pieces off acetate on the inside of my box
This way the candy won't fall out!

I colored my Vampire with my Zig real brush pens
on some watercolor paper then cut it out with my 
Brother Scan N Cut machine - I attached the little
guy to the front of my box - Then took another
Scrap piece of paper and Stamped the sentiment
on it using some Memento Tuxedo Black ink -
then I found a stitched tag die that would fit
around my sentiment, die cut it out, made a small
hole at the top of it so I could put an orange eyelet thru -
Found some FUN Trendy Twine and put it through my
Tag and holes in the box and made a bow --

Now it's ready for some candy!!!

Thanks for your kindness..

Good Morning,

Today is my day to take over the Victorine Originals Blog. In keeping with the "Harvest" theme I chose to use Pumpkins On A Vine for my inspiration today.


Card Recipe:
Pumpkins were stamped onto a piece of patterned paper using a rust colored ink and then a green pencil was used to give a lil color to the vines and leaves. 3 strips of different colored washi tape were applied to a piece of kraft colored cardstock then I used a stitched edge rectangle die to cut down the layer for an A2 sized card base. I used a sentiment from Elegant Sayings that I embossed in gold embossing powder at the bottom

Don't forget there is still time to enter your "Harvest" themed projects into our challenge...
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have a few days left to enter your project/s that follow this theme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

Mixed Media Fall Tag

Mixed Media Fall Tag

Hey Crafty friends
Amy here with a neat tag I made using
Victorine Originals
Bird Cages stamp 74843-K



I recieved some crafty fun mail with new products I was dying to use.
So i had to jump right in and play.
We are always excited when we recieve Happy mail.
I started off by using Gesso on my tag to seal it.  I then added modeling paste using a stencil to get a wonderful texture.
I painted and used an opal magic wax to color and bring out the texture.
I stamped only using one of the bird cages from this stamp.
I was trying to be a little different.
These Bird cages are Beautiful.
I distressed the edges of the paper around the bird cage by ripping the paper and then adding Tim Holtz distress Ink.

I used my punches to punch out leaf shapes.
The one leaf you have to attach to a solid paper for the backing. I decided to wrap a peice of wire around it to add a new touch.
I cut the butterfly out of a banner I had.
Added a lil color and gems to make it sparkle. I then added everything to my tag and arranged them. I added flowers to make it pop and be more fall like.
The flowers were a perfect color.


For all the details and a list of products used go to my blog at thetigerhaven
My tag can also be used as more inspiration for our challenge going on right now.

Here is the amazing and fun Mood Board


Isnt it fun?
You can use anything to inspire you from the board.
A picture, a color, an object in a picture or even the theme we added to this one, Harvest.
So much to inspire you
