The DT members have been busy creating some fabulous projects to inspire you, so be sure to check them out, and leave a little love on the way!!
I received the gorgeous Flapper Twirl Girl image to use on my card. I wanted to go for a real Art Deco look with her. I colored her up with my SN markers, then added some Wink of Stella to the dress and headpiece, and gel pen accents to her beads. I stuck to my favorite color combo with this card, using a pretty patterned backing paper, and some geometric shapes for the foundation. I cut some feathers with my Cricut, then accented them with gel pens. I had some fringe left over from a fringe dress that I made years and years ago, that fit nicely with the scheme, as well as a blingy trim that I scored at the dollar store!! I’m very happy with how this all came together!

Hello there!! Today I have a card made with another gorgeous Aurora Wings image, Flower Ballerina . I colored her with my Prismacolors, and when everything kept going well, my stress at screwing it up increased!! The detail in this beauty was almost too much for my old eyes! I managed to get it done, though, and set to assembling a card. I thought the coloring was bad…..I can’t remember ever having so many issues putting a card together!! The papers I was intending on using just clashed terribly with the image colors, the dies I was going to use are lost in the mail somewhere, I didn’t have the flowers I wanted to use anymore…..blah blah. I buckled down and got to work. I die cut some sheer fabric out of a basic flower shaped die then heated the edges with my gun until they started to twist and curl….a bit of pink was added to the centers before I layered the flower shapes up with some pearl stamens. I decided to go with some solid card stock instead of messing with the print that didn’t match, and added a few strips of cheesecloth, some pearls and pearl sprays. Instead of matting the image, I punched one edge to bring some of the darker pink into the scheme of things. I didn’t have a stamp for the sentiment I wanted, so I used 2. I had to mask off some of the words, to leave the word “with”…..done that lots of times, what could be the problem??? Well, dummy me didn’t mask off the edge above and below the word, so right when I had everything all figured out, I had these 2 purple lines that weren’t supposed to be there!!! AAAARRRGGGHH!! Love = heart and some correction tape on the other boo boo. I was glad to be finished, and extremely pleased with how it turned out, especially with all the issues I had. I really think the finished product does justice to the beautiful image, and I hope the special lady who receives it loves it

Hi there! Today, I have a card made with Ching Chou Kuik‘s Gentle As A Breeze. There is a challenge in the Kit and Clowder Facebook Group where participants use this image to make a project. I actually made a card with this stamp previously, but learned that wine does not go well with coloring! I wasn’t happy with it, so I got my SN markers out and made this one With the colors of the image being so bright, I opted for leaving the rest of the card quite subdued. Some embossed paper for the background, a Poopy Stamps birthday die, pearls, and a few white bows was all this spring-like card needed I hope you like it!!

When I saw the color combo for the them at the Aurora Wings Challenge, I knew that I had to participate! I love the purple green and gold colors of Mardi Gras!! I was originally intending on doing one of the pansy images I have up into a card, but I went shopping and found this beauty, and had to have her!! Big Eyed Hydrangea Sprite can be found here or here. I love shopping at the new Aurora Wings store, it’s so easy to get around! I
I colored her up with my SN markers, and was so tickled with the finished result!! Let me tell you, I was holding my breath towards the end, hoping that I didn’t screw up!! I found some shimmery gold card stock for the back, layered the image with a green scrap and a doily; then cut some light purple flourishes out with a die. The bow and ribbon are actually 2 different ribbons, a sage green and a gold mesh. Then I punched and punched and punched little flowers, that I added gold glitter centers to, and arranged around the image with some punched leaves. A few gold dots and this card was finished!!

Hello, and Happy New Year!!! My blog has been down and out for over a month, but hopefully all the issues are resolved now!!! Just in time for a brand new challenge over at C.R.A.F.T.!! We’re starting the New Year with a fun recipe challenge
Our wonderful sponsor this week is
who have tons of adorable images to choose from!!
I’m using Hula Halina for my card. I colored her up with my SN markers, adding some definition to the hair with an ultra fine point pen. I found the bright summery hibiscus printed paper in my stash, and then matched it up with some bright stripes, from a completely different collection. The three flowers were cut with my Cricut, and I added some sparkle to them before popping them up on some foam dots. I hope you can join us, and make sure you check out the fabulous creations of the DT here.
Hello there!! I hope everyone had a great week, and is ready for the new challenge at Come and Get It Challenges Our theme this week is Lots of Layers – a great way to use up scraps, I find. The sponsor is
who have some fabulous images for the lucky winner to choose from.
I used Cat/Kittens from our sponsor. I’ve been practicing my fur coloring lately, and this was a great image to continue with I used my Spectrum Noir markers, with a few touch up/accents with a very fine point Micron pen. I work with a girl who loooooves kitties, and the color pink, so made this into a birthday card for her. I die cut the backing of the cats from a pretty pink polka dot print, then found 2 other coordinating prints for some of the other layers. I stitched around the edges of these pieces to add a bit of definition. Everything was matted on white card stock, which I edge distressed and inked. The flowers were from my stash, as was the ribbon (I was going to go with MORE pink for the ribbon, but the lime green really popped, and coordinated well with the flowers). I added some adhesive pearls to finish the card off.
Hello there! Hope things are going well for everyone out in blogland It’s Thursday already, and that means it’s time for a brand new challenge at C.R.A.F.T.
We have a fun, and popular, theme this week: Animals :) Our fabulous sponsors this time around are Digital Papercraft and Sassy Studio Design. Some fabulous choices in both of these shops!!
I was given Fairy Holding Bear, from Digital Papercrafts, for my project I colored this little sweetie with my SN markers, and (of course) glittered the wings up with some pink and purple glitter. I’ve had the background paper for ages….it’s actually adhesive backed, and I love all the bright teddy bears. I made a pink frame for the image, as well as a backing for the “look who’s 2″ strip, that I printed on my computer. After cutting these pink pieces with some wavy border scissors, I added little pearls to the bumps. I rolled some roses with the same pink. I cut a “2″ on my Cricut, and glittered it up with the same glitter as on the wings.
I hope you can dive into your stash of animal themed supplies and join us this week Be sure to check out my talented teammates projects when you stop by the blog!! Have a fantastic week, everyone
