Canvas Corp Brands 4 x 4 Canvas

Today I am sharing this adorable canvas I created for Canvas Corp Brands.  Each design team member was given a 4 x 4 Canvas Corp Brands canvas to create a project representative of their personal style.   I choose to feature my two latest obsessions  -- Birds and Butterflies!

I have been playing around with making slide show videos and made one of my creation process.  Hope you enjoy!

Love is in the Air!

Hello Chris here and today I am sharing this romantic greeting with you! I started by repeatedly stamping my Texture stamp onto the  Pomegranate Artzy Doodles paper.  I love the design it created! I then matted the Artzy Doodle paper onto black card stock.  I added a paper doily.

I stamped the heart and the greeting onto water color paper, and colored the heart, using Tattered Angels Festival Glimmer Mist. I fussy cut the heart and added a bow and a flower to finish off the card!

Bright Birdie Greetings!

  Hello!   today I am excited to share this super cheery card with you!  I started by stamping this adorable birdie from the Be Yourself Collection.  I then "colored" my birdie with my Tim Holtz Distress markers Old Paper, Tumbled Glass, Peacock Feathers, Twisted Citron, Fossilized Amber, Evergreen Bough) I then fussy cut out my birdie. But if you don't want to fussy cut, Dare 2 B 

Artzy has these coordinating dies!  I
 then cut a banner and stamped my greeting from the Flip Flop stamp set.  I added the greeting and the birdie to the bottom of my card and added a fussy cup flower and a border strip cut from the Blissful 

Blooms paper. I then added a few doodled dots to coordinate with the paper. Thank you so much, hope you are inspired to get stamping!

My Word for the Year

As a new member to the Canvas Corp Brands Creative Crew, I joined as many committees as I could.  I know always the overachiever!  But one of the main reasons I participate in Design Teams is to push myself.  The Fun and Games Committee groups is for helping with the monthly blog challenges.   
"This month our challenge is based on a popular topic – Word of the Year!  " You can check out all the details at the Canvas Corp Brands Blog.

For my word I choose SHINE.  I used to sit back and watch everything, content to be an observer.  Well SHINE is to remind me that i should be striving to stand out and SHINE! for all the world to see.  

For the challenge I choose to really step outside my boundries - first using mixed media and second using a color pallet that is way outside my comfort zone....pastels!!!! 

I used Tattered Angels Glimmer mist to re-color my Glass bead medium and my modeling paste.  

And did you see the stamps on there?  I stamped my Sequence Waste Stamp from Sin City Stamps using Tattered Angels Coal Chalkboard Mists!!!

Hop on over the the  Canvas Corp Brands Blog to play along and for a chance to win a prize!
