The Crafts Meow Challenge!! =)

The Craft's Meow Monthly Card Sketch Challenge.

                                                               This is what I created!! =)

I used the Simply Delightful and Happiness is stamp sets by The Craft's Meow!! I LOVE these stamps!! I was actually LUCKY enough to get to meet Lisa at the Color Connection workshop in California at the Mission Inn. It was so fun to meet her and to get to learn about her company!! I have LOVED creating with her stamps and if you haven't heard of her please go check out her site at
I stamped my images on sticky back canvas and then embossed them with black embossing powder!! =)
I layered the center flower which consists of 4 stamped pieces and used dimensional adhesive to pop it up!!
 I colored them all with glimmer mist. The two outside flowers with mustard seed and sun sisters and then the largest one with trunk bay and patina, the 2nd largest with old lace and snow queen, the third largest with mustard seed and sun sisters and the littlest flower with lipstick pink glimmer glam. I then topped all of them with felt die cut flowers with baby button centers!!  It LOOKS FABULOUS in real life!! =)
I stamped the sentiment on a sticker. All of the paper is from the Cosmo Cricket line Up Cycle.

Moxie Fab Stamp It Challenge!! =)

I wanted to use glitter so I stamped on acetate and then used helmar gemstone glue and covered the image on the back side with different colored glitter just filling in the image!! I left the empty spaces bare and then added a dictionary paper to the acetate so that the dictionary paper would show through the open spaces!! I LOVE the way it looks!! =) I then used Maya Road trim, pins and chipboard to add the final touches!! The rose trim is by American Crafts and the Springtime stamp is by Studio Calico!!

I used a La Blanche butterfly stamp and stamped on acetate and used helmar gemstone glue to cover the back side of the image and then added the various glitter colors to decorate the butterfly!! I then used Webster's pages flower trim and Maya Road trim, pins, and chipboard to finish it off!! The springtime stamp is by Studio Calico!!

Here is a close up of the butterfly stamped image!! =)
So shiny without any of the glitter flaking off and making a mess!! =)
                       " BOTTLED UP FUN!!"  =)
On this last card I stamped and then embossed a Unity Stamp. I stamped and embossed the balloons on colored cardstock and then cut them out and popped them up on dimensional adhesive. I used an Ellison jar die cut and cut it out of acetate then inked the edged to give it dimension. I wanted to play on the idea of BOTTLING UP the fun!! =) Then you can us it for a Birthday, Summer, Spring or whatever occasion you want to bottle up and cherish.  I used Webster's Pages Paper and LOVE the fun and colorful look!! I also used Webster's Pages trims to decorate the top of the jar!! THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS DAY!! =)

The Play Date Cafe Challenge #89!! =)

Welcome to this week's challenge 
at The Play Date Cafe!
This week, it's soft and subtle with the
Jax's suggested colors of....
Here is what I came up with!! =)
This is my first time to play with this challenge!!
 I used mistable canvas paper from Prima to make my flower and the leaves!!
I painted the leaves with a mint acrylic paint and then used Ranger perfect pearls on top!!
I painted the flowers with cream and then used a pixie dust blingz paint on top!! The glimmer of the flower in real life is just stunning!! I used a Tim Holtz button with a mint gel for the center of the flower. Then I used a stamp on Core`dinations cardstock and frayed the edges. I glued it to a Taupe ribbon and then added two cream jute bows on either side and added pearls to the center of the jute!!
I LOVE the way that it turned out!! The base strip paper is a Webster's Pages paper and it is a Mint, and Taupe stripped paper on a cream base!! It was PERFECT for this challenge!! I then used a darker brown behind it to make it pop!! THANKS for stopping by and have a FABULOUS DAY!! =)

Here is the card that I came up with!!
I am a newbie at stamping, but I bought this set of mini single stamps and had to make masks to layer and color all of the individual stamps. I think for my FIRST EVER masking card this turned out pretty good!!
 I know I'll get better and better; I can't wait to perfect my skills!! I used distress inks and archival black ink for my card!! I added a piece of eyelet fabric and then punched a pretty eyelet border. I really am HAPPY with the over all design. I also added a jute bow and a pearl to the center. Then added a pretty gold iridescent glitter to the centers of the flowers!! =)
