Making Spirits Bright with My Makers Movement

I just can not express how excited I am to be collaborating with My Makers Movement for some upcoming projects, including this one today. This is a great company, they have products for Paper Crafting, Jewelry Making, and have a great die cutting machine called the Crossover II, which I am now saving up for. This machine will cut paper, fabric, emboss, die cut, and the best thing is it is adjustable to handle the job you are doing.

So, on to my project for today. I used the oh too cute 16 piece stamp set called Beary Christmas and the matching dies. These little bears are just too cute, and so fun to color. I stamped them out using Memento Tuxedo Black ink which is alcohol marker friendly. die cut each of the bears and then used my Arteza markers to color each one.


For my background I used Distress Oxide inks in Wilted Violet, Broken China, Salty Ocean and Faded Jeans. I then spritzed some water on the panel and took it up using a paper towel.


Once I was satisfied that my ink was dry I thought it needed something else and took out my Sugar Glitter Bo Bunny Glitter Paste and Card Sized Star Confetti Stencil from MFT. I taped my stencil down and using a palette knife I spread the glitter paste onto my panel. I LOVE the way it turned out.



I grabbed a hillside die from my stash to create something for the ground level and then played around deciding where to put my bears. After doing this I realized the houses really need to come into this project. These homes are so cute, and I would not feel right leaving them out.


Stop on over at My Makers Movement and see what is there. There is something for everyone.
