100813 CKC Counterfeit Tutorials
Lots of yummy product this month, as usual, in the inspiration kit from Cocoa Daisy!
Let's start with some paper...
My Mind's Eye Sky's the Limits "Balloon Parade"
Super easy! I'll bet you have a balloon stamp somewhere in your stash!
Echo Park Beautiful Life "Quatrefoil"
I cut out the shapes from this vintage Basic Gray paper & backed it with other patterned papers.
Cocoa Daisy's own Little Triangles background stamp
I used the pink patterned paper to guide my cut-outs. Now I have the perfect little triangles mask!
Counterfeit Basic Gray Capture die cut pack filmstrip
This is a recent purchase & I am hoping to use it with patterned paper - excited!
Counterfeit Fancy Pants cork hearts & stars
I actually have some thin cork veneer sheets but they don't fit into the punches very well, so I simply used cork paper! Add a pop dot & we have instant dimension :~)
The Art Project kit included some Maya Road kraft circle embellishments, top left.
Punch, stamp (I cut out the circle from this stamp), and done.
The Color Box white ink is so nice & juicy - great for good coverage.
This month is my birthday (10-30) & I'll be 56!
More Cocoa Daisy custom stamps.
I have a favorite coffee mug that I keep on my scrap desk because it makes PERFECT stain circles!
None of my forgeries this month was particularly innovative, but it just goes to show you that you don't have to reinvent the wheel to be able to put together elements that are trendy & new!
