ok!  that was a pain!  I'm going to find that cable and put it somewhere where I know it will be (I took these with my iPhone and [long, boring story here]...).

first we have a black cat bookmark (so cool), a Maleficent necklace (love that SO much), and a Sven Tsum Tsum!!!  isn't he adorable?!

next, some Disney villain stickers, Marvel stickers, and what looks like Spider-Man confetti.  I may have to break my rule of not making ATCs for myself and make a Spidey one with some of those little bits Cheesy

my partner went to Disney World last month and was kind enough to bring back some park maps to help me plan my future trip!

while I really do love everything in my package, these have to be my favorites.  they're little examples of her amazing ability to paint that I get to keep forever; Hocus Pocus ATCs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

and lastly, everything came in this great zippered bag.  that's Jack Sparrow on there!  love it!

thank you SO, SO much, Artmomto5.

me first!  Cheesy

I got a lovely envelope in the mail today from noooitaremybirthday.  she chose my fantasy creatures theme and made this awesome mermaid card!  I love her tail fins because they kinda remind me of seaweed or kelp.  and her hair is so pretty!  it makes it look like she really is dancing (it's titled "Sea Dancin'")!

the background is really neat because it's textured.  it's kinda hard to see in the picture, but it's there.  Cheesy  the back of the card says it was made using markers, paint, gelly roll pens, and gelatos.  I just love it.

it came in a card wrapped with a couple pieces of fabric ribbon, and it also included a few washi tape samples (I've been wanting some!!!) and creature mail stickers!!!

thank you SO much, nooo!!!  so happy to have you back in swaps!!!

in my excitement and need to share, I was trying to find the September gallery for these cards from August.  -_-  awesome.

so the first card from spikefan is pretty much a mix of two themes; favorite characters and Harry Potter.  Bellatrix is definitely one of my favorite HP characters, especially in the movie.  Helena Bonham Carter MAKES that character.

isn't she GORGEOUS?!  I absolutely LOVE HER!!!!!!!!!!

then there's this card; the card that had me screaming, jumping up and down, and nearly in tears.  it's my man, Marilyn Manson.

isn't it stunning?

I can't stop looking at these cards.  not to say that I don't love all of my cards (this round has been fantastic and I loved seeing some "new blood" in here (I didn't look to see if any unfamiliar names had been doing the ATC swaps before I came back)), but when it comes to drawings of people, I am always blown away because I just don't understand the concept of how it's done (I suck at drawing people).  oh and paintings too!!!  especially in watercolor...JUST HOW?!

this has been so much fun.  I can't wait to see what September brings for us!!!

I MADE A THING!!!!!!!!!!!!

I haven't been making much besides ATCs (and stuff for a swap that I can't post), so this is a big thing for me!!!  especially since it's the first one I've ever made!!!  lol

on my list I have a Teesha Moore style cover for a binder that I keep my ATCs in.  I'm one patch closer to that cover.

you can see the post I made about it here.  the edges aren't as wonky as they look in the pic, that's just where it kinda rolled or whatever.  it's wavy.  lol.  but it'll straighten out once it's attached to another patch.

5  Red Riding Hood TM patch! in Completed Projects by Krafty_Karasu on: September 04, 2016 05:28:15 PM
my first ever Teesha Moore patch!!!  and I love it!!!

I was in the August round of the ATC swap where I did a Red Riding Hood themed card.  I got the idea from an invitation I found online.  I made paper cuts for the ATC, then I made the pieces from felt and stitched this up.  and I love how it turned out!!!

isn't it cute?!  now I only need...some more patches to make a cover for my ATC binder!  Cheesy

all these watercolor cards are exactly why I bought another watercolor set today.  the one I got at Michaels is like...chalky?  it's perfect for certain projects, like the pocket letter swap I'm in, but not for making the pretty things I'm seeing here.

the gems I used are from nail art kits.  so yeah, they're tiny.  Tongue

I got a card on Saturday!!!  I was silent on this until today though because yesterday was a Skyrim binge day.  Cheesy  I think I only checked Facebook maybe twice.  and that was on my phone (this site is too hard for me to look at on my phone and I don't know my password.  lol).

for my Weird America theme, emilywilde made me a card depicting Powell's City of Books in Portland, OR.  the NW entrance has a statue known as "The Pillar of Books" that actually contains the ashes of a man who loved the store so much, he wanted to be buried there.  the ashes were previously stored on a shelf within the store.  talk about a dedication to reading!

so cool!  thank you for sharing this with me, emilywilde!!!

looks like it made it through the mail!  lol

I'm so glad you like it.  Smiley  when I saw that Pinterest board, I spent hours going through the pictures again and again and again.  I've started falling in love with calavera makeup and sugar skulls over the last few years, and when I was at Michaels the other day, I picked up that cat stamp (yes, it's a stamped image).  I went through that board again, and came up with this idea.  there are tiny jewels in places where the shape on the image matched rhinestones I have, then I filled in the other areas with markers.  on the card, it was otherwise boring.  all that yellow space.  I looked through the board AGAIN, and found a picture that had a design like that around the outside.  I figured I could do something similar, and there you have it!

here's the pic I took so you can see the little jewels:

I tried to lighten it up a bit, but now the orange around the outside looks darker than it is.  *sigh*  but you get the idea.  Wink

new card!  Grin

from kartiana, "Tank!".  it's from the theme song for Cowboy Bebop.  if you're curious, here's the song.

it totally fits the style of Cowboy Bebop, and the song is great.  and so is the show/movie!!!  and then of course there's Ein, the Corgi!!!  lol

thank you SO much, kartiana!  I love my card!!!

Craftster is being weird.  to anyone that has messaged me in the last three days; I'M NOT IGNORING YOU!!!  Craftster just isn't letting me know about new messages for some reason.  Cry  anyone else having trouble?

I did get three new cards today though.  I will send messages and post pics in a minute!

ok!  here we go!

first that surreal card is fascinating.  I don't think I've seen anything like that before.

second, my new cards!

from rockingbearranch for my crow theme

kinda reminiscent of my user name, eh?  a crow on a spool of thread.  kinda tells me the crow is crafty.  Wink  and a little key too!  you snuck another of my themes in there.  lol

from pottermouth (a fellow Spawn fan!!!) for my Spawn theme

love my new Spawn card!!!  I've actually been a fan since the live-action movie (as rough as that could be to watch).  I moved on to action figures and such later, AFTER I got the idea of what Spawn was about.

from Susie Apple for my Halloween theme

isn't that little ghostie ADORABLE?!  and look at the candy corn background!!!  she even sent a vampire extra!  how cool is this guy?!

thank you all SO much!!!

now I'm off to work on more cards.  I got a little behind.  :-/  stupid job...

that fool card is AWESOME!  lol

and that night sky...WOW!  I'm seriously impressed with what people can do with watercolor (I too am questioning if it's watercolor because I never know unless someone tells me).

my turn again!

I got a lovely weird America card from loca4crafts today!  THANK YOU FOR NOT PUTTING GLITTER ON IT!!!  lol.  I don't know if I could have handled that today.  as much as I love glitter, inventorying Christmas glitter picks at Michaels makes me loathe glitter for a while (and that's exactly what I did today.  thank the gods they don't have their full stock of those picks yet.  but there are glittery Halloween ones to do tomorrow).  lol.  but then I get over it and I'm all "OMG GLITTER YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!".

first there's the front picture.  a card about the Oregon Country Fair. (loca4crafts says "it promotes sustainability, peace, and is basically a big hippie festival"):

next up, a mudman.  "the mud people wear very little clothing, cover themselves in mud and wander around the OCF grounds acting like cavemen":

then we have a couple of people dressed up as cute monsters and the wooded setting the OCF takes place in.  pretty isn't it?

unfortunately the last picture was slightly stuck to the inside and tore a little.  but that's ok.  the damage isn't too bad and you can still see the pretty trees.

thank you SO much, loca4crafts!!!  that's two very nifty/weird things from Oregon and Washington so far.  I NEED MORE!!!  FROM EVERY STATE!!!  lol
