Personalized Softball Home Decor Plaque

 Hello! Today I am sharing a personalized softball home decor plaque I made for my daughter to hang up in her room.

This really was not a difficult project to create at all. So easy that I am actually thinking about making one for each of the girls on my daughter's team.
I first started with the Creative Embellishment Baseball Home Decor piece and painted it with some yellow acrylic paint. It did take about 3 coats to cover it well so next time I think I might do a coat of Gesso first. Then for the stitching, I used a Decocolor Red Paint Marker. I painted mine yellow so it would be a softball but it could also be easily painted white with red stitching to be a baseball.


For my daughter's name and number, I used StyleTechCraft Glossy Craft Vinyl in Royal Blue. I cut the letters out using my Silhouette Cameo 4 on the glossy vinyl setting and then used StyleTechCraft Clear Transfer Tape to make sure I got all the letters lined up straight. All I had to do was place the clear tape over the top of the cut glossy vinyl, peel the backing off of the glossy vinyl and then weed out the areas of the glossy vinyl that I did not want. Then just transferred the glossy vinyl to the front of the softball.

To create the graduation cap a diploma, I used Maker's Movement Graduation Cap die set. It was super easy to assemble. On the top part of the cap, I used 3D Foam Dots to give it some dimension. For the rest of the card, I used my Xyron Tape Runner.


 Then for the sentiment, I used Maker's Movement Say It Loud stamp set and stamped it with VersaMark, and heat embossed it with gold embossing powder.


For the tassel, I used Embroidery Floss. To see exactly how I created it, watch my video above.

Father's Day Card For A Great Dad

 Hello! Today I am sharing a Father's Day card with an old truck for a great dad and since Father's Day is just around the corner it is a good time to get started on dad's card.

I first stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Truck Old Pick Up Stamp and then stamped it again on a post-it note and fussy cut it out so I could place it over the original stamped image to mask over the truck.
Then I stamped the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Gas Pump Stamp over it, so it would look like it was behind the truck. I colored the images in with colored pencils.
For the sentiment, I used the Crackerbox & Suzy Stamps Great Dad sentiment stamp.


For the silver matting, I used Rinea Foiled Paper Glossy Silver and embossed it with an embossing folder to give my card a cool masculine feeling. Then adhered it all together with my Xyron Mega Runner.

Easy Slimline Graduation Card

Hello! Today I am sharing a slimline card I made that would be perfect as a graduation card or if you just want to send someone some inspiration.


Some of the products I have used in this post have been provided to me by various companies. The opinions I share are solely my own. Affiliate links may be used where possible at no cost to you. However, I do earn a small commission when you click on my links and make a purchase from them. Thank you, and I appreciate your support!

I started with the TCW2311 Triple Squares Slimline Stencil from The Crafters Workshop. Then I used an ink blending brush to create an Ombre of blues. Then using the TCW2209 Beautiful Sentiments 4x6 Clear Stamps, I used a couple of the sentiments that I thought would be a good inspiration sentiment for a graduate.


I also stamped two of the butterflies from the same stamp set and colored them in with Copic markers. Then to give the butterflies some shimmer, I colored over them with a clear shimmer pen.
