Connie Hanks Photography // ClickyChickCreates.com // One-Layer Mother's Day card, simple stamping and watercoloringMakeItMondayCircle-Lav-Grn-APRILWelcome to another Make It Monday! This month has been quite busy with photo sessions (feeling super blessed about that!), so my crafting has been on the back burner, but I’m back with a great card today! I hope you enjoy it!

Back when I dove in head first into the world of scrapbooking and card-making (I was pregnant with my now 5-almost-6 year old!), I went through a big collecting phase and bought all kinds of yummy tools. Sadly, lots of it has been waiting to be used! When I was collecting, I was waiting for the “right” project or “perfect” photos to use with it. But now, I’m loving digging into my stash and finding old pieces to use in new ways!

If you’ve seen any of my crafty videos, you know I normally add lots of layers and dimension to my cards. But making one-layer cards? Way more challenging for me! I was inspired by Kristina Werner to create a card with all the prettiness in the center of a circular area, and yes, one-layer!

I cut out a circle from a piece of scrap paper and used that to mask off a circle in the (somewhat) middle of my card (A2 – 4-1/4″ x  5-1/2″).  I then stamped a few of the flowers (a very old set from Recollections) onto scratch paper and created masks to work with. I then started stamping onto my card, into the inner circle, overlapping the edge of the circular mask. I then used the flower masks to make sure the big flowers were front and center on the card. I stamped all of it using Staz-On so I wouldn’t have any problems with bleeding.

Then using a combination of Distress Inks, paint brush and water, I watercolored the flowers for a sweet and easy card! Once it was dry, I added a little Wink of Stella for some extra sparkle!

And I’m super excited my watercolor birthday banner AND bonus Mother’s Day banner is being featured as part of the National Scrapbooking Day 2015 Bundle!

You are SPEC-tacular! {Feeling Crafty}

Exchanging Valentine’s was always an exciting day when I was a kid. Not just receiving them on the day of, but the love and care that went into making them! As a kid, I remember choosing just the perfect box of Valentine’s from the grocery store. Picking my favorites to give to my best friends. Signing each of them and adding doodled hearts (oh wait, I still do the doodled heart thing!) ❤

Now, as a crafty mom, I love that my girls enjoy making their own Valentine’s, using stickers, markers, glitter and googly eyes! My 8-yr old had the idea to make paper glasses for all her classmates with the “spec-tacular” quote, but that proved a bit more challenging! So she settled for these cards we made on the computer and embellished after printing. Adding Stickles glitter glue and googly eyes gave these cards so much personality! We washi taped them onto mechanical pencils (a new fave amongst the 2nd grade trendsetters) and they’re ready to go! She was thrilled beyond belief to share these with her friends at school today!

True Stamp 2014 – 50% off for a limited time!!

What do all of these projects have in common? Any guesses? Did you say stamping? Of course you did!

You love stamps. How did I know? Because whether you’re a card maker, an art journaler, or a scrapbooker, stamps are cost-effective, versatile, and FUN! But do you ever look at your ever-growing collection of stamps and inks and say, “HELP!”?

When it comes right down to it, nothing is better for revving up that mojo than learning from “the masters.” Watching real experts demonstrate unique techniques and projects is a sure-fire way to rev up the inspiration. But who has the time or money to travel all over the country to take classes?

Well, you don’t have to! It’s back… True Stamp!
