Primitive Sheep Grungy Tag

I felt like making a Primitive Hangtag over the weekend, and since I didn't have time to do much crafting after a full day of painting in my studio, this was the perfect solution to a quick prim craft project.

Primitive Sheep Grungy Tag

Just a simple grungy'd up hang tag that I stamped with a cute Primitive Sheep stamp, and then I embellished it just a bit around the edges with a black pen. Cute and prim, and super easy!

Simple Ditty Bag

I'm still kind of on a stamping kick where my crafting is concerned, so I created this Simple Ditty Bag using a recent stamp purchase to share with you.

Primitive Simple Ditty Bag

The Willow Tree is part of a stamp set that I got on Blitsy recently. I think the text sentiment came with that too, if I recall correctly. I grungy'd up the Muslin Bag first, of course, then I stamped it. Simple, cute, and prim. My favorite combination.

Twinkle Twinkle Primitive Card

After finding some great Primitive Rubber Stamps, which I blogged to you about last month, I finally got a chance to get back into my studio and put some of them to use. Although I used stamps that I found a few days after my other stamp purchase when I did this project. This was my first creation with some of the new stamps. It's a grungy Kraft card, which I turned into some Altered Art, primitive style.

Twinkle Twinkle Mason Jar Primitive Card

I created this using three different clear acrylic stamps. The Mason Jar is one, the Stars are another, and the text sentiment is the other. The Mason Jar stamp is small (this is a 4x6 card) and is by Dear Izzy. I don't remember where I purchased that one, but it comes with a few even smaller stamps that have text and so forth. The Stars and the text sentiment came together I got them from the Unity Stamp Company.

I stamped the stars first, then stamped the Mason Jar, and then the text. And to add the yellow to the stars I used a little watered down Tim Holtz Distress Paint. The grungy edges were created with a Walnut Stain Distress Ink, also by Tim Holtz. I decided it would be neat to use the stars to create a matching envelope as well. More stamped projects to come soon!

Primitive Rubber Stamps

I love great Primitive Finds, especially when they can help me do some more crafting! So I was thrilled last night when I saw these rubber stamps over on Blitsy. And I wanted to share my find with you.

Unity Primitive Rubber Stamps

The cow isn't so much primitive-looking, but I absolutely LOVE the sheep and the tree, and the house is cute too. So I know I'll have fun using these when they arrive. So stay tuned for that! In the meantime, if you want to get some of these stamps for yourself, hop on over via the link below.

And you better hurry. Items that are for sale on Blitsy are only there for a limited time, so if you want things from that site you have to buy them right away!

Happy Stamping!

I just wanted to share this fun gift I got for Mother's Day from my daughter. It's not necessarily prim, but it does have a wonderful vintage look that I love. And since we'll be moving in the next couple of years to "the farm" (as the Hubs calls it), I think he will live nicely in my farmhouse kitchen I will have there.

Vintage Rooster

And he's really the best kind of rooster...he won't make any noise! LOL.
