Getting kids crafty December Blog Hop

Hello, I recently became a designer for get kids crafty. Each month there is a blog hop with a different theme showing ways to get kids crafty. You can check out the Facebook page here Get Kids Crafty Facebook page

I'm a stay at home mom right now and I'm crafty so why not get my kids more crafty.  I thought this would be an extra fun way to do it.

 You can use your own crafting supplies, kids crafty stuff or anything you can find to be crafty with.  I hope all these crafts inspire you to be crafty with your kids this holiday season.

This months theme is fireplace/s'mores theme. 

I decided to create a s'mores stick sign as a ornament for our tree with my son Riley. He's 2 1/2 so together we created a fun ornament as a Christmas gift for daddy! 

Our first step was to find a stick outside to make our s'mores sticks. So we went on an adventure outside to find that. 

"I found it Mommy!" 

I wrote out "Daddy, I love you s'more much" in white crayon so that Riley could use distress inks over it and create a resist on the crayon. Watercolor paint could also be used.  Riley used two different colors of distress inks that he picked himself and he just sponged them on the paper. We used Carved Pumpkin and Lucky Clover distress inks.

Then he added cotton balls to the end of the sticks to create marshmallows at the end of the sticks. He loved this step! 

Riley then helped me trim the paper around the saying we inked up. 

He then helped me punch holes in the paper to add Ribbon to attach the paper to the sticks. 

Here is the finished craft!

The Rabbit Hole Designs Caffeinated Bear

 Hello and happy Tuesday!  I've got a fun card to share with you today here and over on my YouTube Channel.  I used the Caffeinated Bear from The Rabbit Hole Designs to create this card.  The background was cut down from some backgrounds I created recently with acrylic paint on my glass mat.   You can see the process of those background here over on my YouTube Channel After adhering the already done background to a piece of black paper to create a boarder. I of course cut it down so just a thin boarder was there. Then I was able to adhere the background panel to the card base with the advanced tape glider.   At this point I stamped the bear in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and then I was able to color the image with spectrum noir markers. I also added polka dots and details to the image using a sakura white jelly roll pen. I added the words Mom Life to the cup with a  black pen.   I adhered the caffeinated bear with some foam tape to add some dimension to the image.  For the sentiment
