Guest Designer - Glorajean!


This is Glora from Glora's Crafts and I was SO happy to have been invited to guest design for My Craft Spot today. I have followed Kimberly's blog for a long time and learned lots of awesome crafty tips from her. She sells stamps and dies but she also sells beautiful crinkle ribbon, baker's twine, sequins, etc. in her My Craft Spot Shop. You should definitely check her shop out if you haven't already.

I love cute little critters and punny sentiments and was excited to showcase a couple of creations using her Cute Critters stamp set. Both of these are A2 size cards (4.25" by 5.50"). I wanted them to coordinate so I used some of the same products on both of them. The patterned paper on both is from American Crafts Hip Hip Hooray 6x6 paper pad. I also used my corner rounder for the layered piece on each one of these and my Spellbinders Classic Ovals Die set for the oval background behind each critter.


For my ducky card I used the darling 'You QUACK me up!' sentiment from My Craft Spot's Cute Critters set. The adorable duck is a Peachy Keen CottageCutz set called Duck with Egg 4x4. I used some pretty crinkle ribbon and Valentine Cherry Cupcake twine.


To give my card a finished look I inked the edges, added Glossy Accents to the duck's eyes and chalk to her cheeks. I also used my Fine point Sharpie pen to make some accent dots.

Now for my second card:


 Isn't that skunk SO sweet? I think this little cutie would brighten anyone's day. The skunk is another Peachy Keen Cottage Cutz die called Stinky Skunk 4x4. I thought she was perfect to go with this cute sentiment from the Cute Critters stamp set. I stamped the sentiment on the My Craft Spot's Ribbon Banners Wavy Die.


I did more inking, chalking, and added Glossy Accents to her eyes. I also added some Prima Flowers. I added adhesive pearls to the middles and drew some stems and leaves onto them so it could be a little bouquet of flowers. I also added more accent dots with my fine point Sharpie pen.

I hope you enjoyed my cards. Thanks again to Kimberly for having me guest design for her. It was a lot of fun. Kimberly was also super sweet and has offered to let me give a set away to one of my lucky followers. All you need to do is leave a comment on my blog (HERE) letting me know which My Craft Spot stamp set is your favorite. 

Have a wonderful day! Hugs- Glora

  1. These cards are adorable and would brighten anyone's day. Thanks for sharing. Really can't pick a favorite stamp as they are all so nice. I really like the Banner sentiment stamps and think that these could be used for everything under the sun. The jar basics is simply adorable also.
