Wishing You Love

I just had to get my Copic Markers out and Color!!!
Sherri the owner of My Besties has blessed me with many
of her stamps and so I was excited to get a chance to color.

I used my Tilda paper which is not easy to do because
I like to hoard it.  They probably won't bring this one back.
I also used my new dies that I got at my local Scrapbook
Store.  This stamp is called Wishing You Love!
I colored her up late last night and made this card.
I know it's a bit early for Valentines Day but I
was in the mood for lots of pink.  If you would
like to have this stamp or chose from many others
you can shop here!

Shabbylicious Friend

In keeping with the Gone Artsy theme this month of New Beginnings,
I made this card to represent "New Friendships".  I used Fabscraps 
12x12 "Shabbylicious Collection" Shabby Bird Double Sided 
Paper - GA562 that has the bird on it. I also used 
Fabscraps 12x12 "Shabbylicious Collection" Chic Mix 
Double Sided Paper - GA563 the Damask side.
 I distressed the edges and in between the paper I added 
some gathered crepe paper.
I added some flowers that I had in my stash and popped 
the Friend word bead on it. I also threw in some pink feathers.
I hope that you will go and check out the Gone Artsy
zibbet store.  Deb has been adding lots of new items
to the store and you can get 15% off her already low
prices by using my discount code DTSPL15.

Jewelry Cuff

I am a little late getting on the bandwagon of making a fabric cuff
but since I have these lovely laces from Gone Artsy's zibbet store...
It was time to give it a try.  To fit in the theme for the month
I chose flowers which signify "New Beginnings" and since
I had never made a cuff before it is a new beginning for me!
First I stitched a base from 2 pieces of muslin.  I added
some laces from my stash and used the Double Edge
White Embroidered Lace Trim (GA155) from the store.
I also stitched on some pearl white and off white beads.  
I took a Tim Holtz metal piece and bent it slightly to fit
my wrist.  I added some Pink Iridescent Texture Paste
(GA532) in various places on the metal piece.  I printed a
floral picture onto fabric and stuffed it to pop it up.  
I added the Faux Pearl and Rhinestone Cup Chain (GA287) 
to each side and one on the bottom.  I used E6000 glue
to attach it to the metal piece.
There are 2 snaps on the back and I added the Mini Doily 
Applique Two (GA473) topped with buttons to finish it up.
If you use my discount code DTSPL15 you will receive
an additional 15% off your order.   You can find everything
you need to make your own cuff here!  Please check out
Gone Artsy's store, blog and Face Book page.
Thanks for stopping by!

Who doesn't love a crown?

I love crowns!  
This is my first project for Deb the owner of the
Gone Artsy Zibbet Store.  I used her beautiful 
Bridal Applique on the front and sewed down
some beads here and there.  I attached 
a shabby flower that I made using her
ostrich feathers, doily lace and beaded trim.
I also did my first live show for Deb on Ustream
if you would like to watch how I made it.
You can find the link here!  You can find everything
I used in the Gone Artsy store and much, much more.
I spray painted the chicken wire pink after
I shaped it into the crown.  
I added her beautiful laces around the back
and beads to bling up the back of the crown.
It's amazing what you can do with some
chicken wire and lace!

I made another Paperclay Snowman with a Tutorial

The new snowman is in front.  This was before I
glittered him up.  I made the white one last year.
The one on the right is the one I purchased from
the store.
Here he is all glittered up.  I still have to put
him up on a box but I wanted to share him
with you.  I did a tutorial on my You Tube
channel and you can find it here.  It's not
the best but it was long overdue.
I hope that you will try and make one or
more.  He would make a great Christmas gift
for someone!
 If you have any questions just leave
me a comment.  Next on my list is a Santa!

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!
