New Beginnings!!!


Hello and Happy New Year to everyone!!! I have my very first creation for the year 2011 and this one is for "The Dutch Dare Card Challenge". I used papers from my stash and one of my images called "Baby Mine". You can find this image and many more at my store "Pattie's Creations". I started out with white cardstock and added a piece of turquois paper that I embossed in my Cuttlebug. I colored my image with my Copics and cut it out with one of my Nesties. The sentiment is one of my dies also. I added ribbon, glitter flowers and 2 baby safety pins that I found in my stash of buttons. What do you think?

Bird Luminaria


Hello everyone... I have a creation for you today and this one is for the following challenges:
I decided to use the image provided by Sue at CDAC and I made a luminaria. I love to make these because they are so easy and they really look nice with a battery tea light inside. I printed the image out on vellum paper and cut the scallop ovals with my Cuttlebug and a nestabilities die. I used a different section of Sue's image for each window. I added a stamped border on the bottom and top and added a lace border on the top using black glitter paper. I also cut out two flowers with the black glitter paper and placed them on two sides of the luminaria.

Lady Rose Stained Glass


Hello again... I have a creation today and this one is for the following challenges:
I made a luminaria and used a free image by Jen Leeflang found at Nana Vic's Group in CDAC. The image is called Lady Rose. This image reminds me of a Medieval Stained Glass and is perfect for The Chestnut Theme Challenge at Gingersnaps. I colored Lady Rose using Adobe Fireworks. I then printed it out on to vellum paper. If you need my instructions for printing on vellum please let me know. I took a glass vase that has a crackle effect near the bottom, added some silk flowers inside and a few battery tea lights. I put a fine strip of double face tape around all the edges of the image and adhered it to the glass vase. This was a very easy creation and it makes a very nice luminaria that looks beautiful at night.

Mermaid Pattieboop


Hi everyone... I have a new creation and this one is for the following challenges.
I decided to make a Shaker Card since I never tried one. I had so much fun with this one. My image is from Pattie's Creations called Mermaid Pattieboop. This is one of my images and can be found here. The papers are from my stash. I cut out a circle, added acetate, and mounted it on foam board to create my window. I tried using glitter but that didn't work so I used tiny glass beads inside my window. They worked perfectly! I then added paper that I created in Photoshop and two fish with bubbles. I used my scallop circle from Spellbinders for trim around my window. A few splashes of water gels, a paper flower, some coral branches and my creation was complete.
