Another Creation from the My-Besties Card Kit

There are still so many goodies left from the kit that I wanted to
show how you can make something other than a card with it soooo
I made a box for candy or whatever you want to fill it with!

I colored the 'Filled With Love" stamp with different colors from
the last card.  That's what I love about stamps!  You can color
them to match your paper or theme.  I paper pieced the bag
using the matching paper and then stuffed it with the lollipops,
and the gauze from the kit.

You can see the 3D bag a little better in this picture.
I used a solid paper for the back just to save paper
for another card.  Since I attached the image off
the box a bit, I covered the back of the image 
with the beautiful rose paper that I used on the
bag so it looks good from all sides.  I just cut
the box by hand and cut an opening with a die
cut and inserted a piece of acrylic for the window.
I popped a doily on the inside and used my circle
punch to make a finger pull on both sides of the
box.  The Winter Wonderland kit can be found
here.  Some of the embellishments in the kit may
vary.  Thank you for stopping by!

My-Besties August Card Kit

It's never too early to start preparing for Christmas and if you
know me then you know that I do not use traditional colors
to decorate my house.  Christmas is one of my favorite holidays! 
The kit includes many trims to choose from.  I added the blue
flowered trim on the right side.  I added the glitter to the flowers
and her hat and there is still a lot more left.  The rope has wire
in it so you can bend it to any shape you want.  Love that!
I cut the diamond bling on the top left from the trim that was 
included.  I used 3 of the 8 papers.  I stamped up the image and 
colored her up with my Copic Markers.  This stamp is adorable and 
you can use her over and over again.  I will post the Copic colors 
that I used at the end of the post.  I did use clear Wink of Stella on
the fur of her hat, shoes and gloves but it doesn't show up.  I fussy 
cut her and popped her up on top of the mesh and layers of paper.  
You can purchase this kit here!  I hope that I have inspired you
to start on your Christmas card making and why not start
with this kit!

Happy Birthday Month!

It's been awhile since I posted or even had a chance to do 
any card making.  I've been very busy with ministry and
celebrating my birthday all month!  Oh what fun!
I hosted a 12 hour Summer Crop so I
finally had time to COLOR!  I sure missed it!
I have been wanting to color this Sherri Baldy My Besties
stamp.  I love the big hat and hair. This is a clear stamp
#MYB-0935.  I used my Copic Markers to color her.
The sentiment is a Sizzix die.  The flowers are from
I Am Roses.
Thank you for looking in!  I will be doing some
Bible Art Journaling in a few days and so I will be
posting my journey as I start this adventure.
Have a wonderful and blessed weekend!

Clever Chole Card

I wanted to share my latest card.  I colored her up 
a few weeks ago but wasn't able to put her on a card
until today.  She is a My-Besties stamp.
Her name is Clever Chole #MYB-0025.  You can
find her here.  I used "Simple Stories diy boutique" 
paper line and the new Tim Holtz die cuts that
included word "enjoy"!
Thanks for looking in!  I hope you have a 
blessed week!

It's a good day to have a good day!

I belong to a group on Face Book that offered this digi free
to it's members.  It is a Polka Doodle image called Eden.
I was intimidated at first because of all the background 
scenery and flowers but ended up enjoying the process.
It really was fun to color up all the flowers and
landscape.  My lighting wasn't that great so I am
not completely happy with her but I still like her.
It looks like I blended the hair a little too much.
I guess it gives another reason to try her again.
I made her into a card and added a butterfly so I
could enter her into a contest over at the Polka Doodle
blog.  Again it wasn't easy because the image is
busy so you have to keep it clean and simple.  That
does not describe me.  I tend to keep adding stuff.
I put glossy accents and blue glass glitter on the
butterfly to brighten it up a bit.  I also crocheted a very
small beige butterfly on the bottom left of the card.

Miss Mopsy Stamp and Sweet Afternoon Paper

I think this Miss Mopsy stamp is adorable and I had to try to 
color up her hair.  Let me know what you think.
I used Teresa Collins paper line called Sweet Afternoon.
I also used the buttons that came in the coordinating
diecut sheets.  I added some flowers and distressed the
edges of the papers.
The wood embellishments are from Queen and Co,
I won them at a Scrapping Crop last year.  I put
some pink paper behind the cutout section of the 
wood to add some more pink!  I hope you like it!

Happy Mother's Day to all the Mom's out there!

I hope that you had a blessed day celebrating Mother's Day!
I am blessed to be the Mother of 7 children.  I had a 
relaxing day and my daughter and husband went out
of their way to make it a special day for me.
I was missing my Mother who left this world 5 years ago.
I miss her so much and so I went into my craft room and
started to color this pretty stamp.  I loved her the moment
I saw this stamp working at CHA in Sherri Baldy's booth
for the My Besties line.  I love the hair.  I think I choose
stamps with lots of hair to color.  If your interested in the 
colors that I used to color her up just leave me a comment.
I also used the gold glass glitter that I got from Sherri too.
I decided to add it to the wand and in the crown jewels.
The paper I used is from the Tilda line and it is called
Apple Bloom!  I got the paper from Traci the shop
owner of Art Attack Supplies.  She has great prices
for the Tilda paper lines which I love!  
I just layered up some of the different papers that
I die cut and the bright pink die cut is from 
My Minds Eye.  I added the wooden "wish"
to wish you all a Happy Mother's Day!

Milk Box with My Bestie Dancer

I love this Sherri Baldy My Bestie img601 because
of her eyes and her hair which was so fun to color.  
So much fun!  She is beautiful.  If you would like 
to purchase her, you can find her here.
I left the top open so the receiver of this gift can open it up 
to get the handmade goodies out.  I just added the chubby
cloths pin to hold it closed.
The paper is a Tilda paper line.  You can't forget to 
add some flowers and layers to the stamped image.
I cut out the opening so you could see all the beautiful
resin pieces and crocheted flowers but sealed it with
a piece of thin plastic to act as a window.  The ballerina 
is a die cut from the Tilda paper line.
