Believe Fairy...





Hello everyone... Today I have a new creation and this one is for the following challenges:
I decided to make an easel card because I just love to add my sentiment inside. My image is from Sweet Pea Stamps called Fly Butterfly by Ching-chou kuik. My papers are from my stash. I colored my image using Adobe Fireworks and Copics. I used one of my Sizzix dies for the corners on the front. I added feathers, prima flowers, a brad that says Believe, glitter and gold thin ribbon. On the inside I added a quote from the famous book Peter Pan by James M. Barrie. A couple of Prima flowers and two butterfly brads completed my creation. The DT member from Gingersnap Creations that I used for my inspiration is Debby from Debby's Stuff. I loved the colors that Debby used on her creation, the fairy image and the corners were such a nice touch.

Pool Party/Barbeque...


Oh my gosh! I have been busy all day crafting and I am so happy to come up with another new creation for today. I am entering it in the following challenges:
I used some papers from my stash and also created my own paper (red stripes) using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I used the apron template provided by Just Us Girls. I used dark blue cardstock for my base and my red stripe paper next. I had some denim fabric paper that I added as my pocket and stitched it with a zig zag stitch. My digital image is from Michelle Perkett called Penelope. I colored her using Adobe Fireworks. I added sun glasses to her face that I stamped and scanned in to my computer. I colored them with Copics. A sentiment, some glitter, fabric flowers with metal buttons, rick rack, an invitation insert (made in MS Word) and some ribbon completed my creation. Ok... what do you think?  

Just Breathe...

Night Time View

Day Time View
Well I had a busy day yesterday creating and I finished another creation today. This one is for the following challenges:
My papers are from DCWV called The Mariposa Matstack. My image is a stamp from All About Media and I scanned it and now it is a digital image that I saved on my PC. I colored the fairy image using Adobe Fireworks CS4. I cut her out and added glitter to her wings. I followed a tutorial from Splitcoast Stampers for the luminaria. I used my Martha Stewart lace border punch for the top and cut out my windows with one of my Nestabilities dies and my Cuttlebug machine. I used gold glitter vellumn in the windows and added some butterflies that I cut out and then added some glitter. This would be perfect for a wedding having a Fairy theme... Just add a battery operated tea light and enjoy.

Berry Happy Birthday!!!


Well, I managed to finish another creation for today and this one is for the following challenges:

I love doing easel cards so this challenge was so much fun for me. The image is from Phindy called Beary Beautiful. The papers are from my stash and I colored the image using Adobe Fireworks. I just love coloring with this software! It takes some skill but if you keep practicing you can get some wonderful shading. I used one of my Nestabilities dies to cut out the image. I added a polka dot brown ribbon, a hat pin that I embellished with beads, some gems and my sentiment. I did not mis-spell the sentiment but instead of using Beary I used Berry because I thought it went well with Die Cut Dreams theme. What do you think?

Get Well Birdie...

I colored the image with Adobe Fireworks and added a little feather and a pearl to his head. The trim around the house is from Bazzill Basic Paper called Just The Edge with swiss dot embossing. I cut a circle in the house for the door using one of my Nestabilities scallop circle dies. I used my Martha Stewart butterfly punch to create the butterflies and added gems and glitter. To finish my creation I added pearls along the roof top and a sentiment.




Alice In Wonderland

My image is from Michelle Perkett called Alice and the White Rabbit. I used other images from Lewis Carroll's book called "Alice In Wonderland". The watch, Cheshire Cat and keyhole images were found on the Internet. I colored all of my images with Adobe Fireworks and Copic markers. I chose papers from my stash and added hand stitching to the front cover edges. I used gold vellum paper and one of my Fiskars lace border punches. On the back of the book I added a sentiment from the book along with a pocket watch and the Cheshire Cat. Inside the book box I made some stationary using MS Word.

The POOL is Open!!!



Hello again... I have a new creation and this one is for Michelle Perkett's Studio Challenge and the Cupcake Craft Challenge. The DT's theme for MPSC this week is "Summer Theme" and the theme for CCC is "Summer Delights". I made a door hanger that I can hang near my pool. When I think of Summer I think of swimming.

I used Color Box Chalks around the edges of the door hanger, added some stickers and dew drops. I printed my sentiment using MS Word. What do you think?
