Man Up!

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

Over at the Simon Says Stamp and Show the theme this week is Men Only. Here’s a very manly card I made using a cool stamp from River City Rubber Works. The text stamp is from Stampers Anonymous. The background is vintage math book paper and I also added a piece of vintage tape measure.

Blow a Bubble

Tuesday, September 27th, 2011

The vintage children’s books I use for alot of my solder pendants sometimes have very tiny but cute art in them. Too small for even 1″ square pendants I thought I could find a way to make some teeny pieces with them. So recently I got some flat backed round glass bubbles that are about 3/4″. I soldered around the edges and back and they are perfect. Like a little window with a tiny surprise inside it. I adore the way they turned out!

These can currently be found in my Etsy shop.

Have a Magical Day!

I adore the Pure Innocence stamp line from My Favorite Things, it’s one of my faves, I’d love to own them all :)

Here’s a card I made for the MFT weekly sketch challenge. I took the little girl holding the pumpkin and drew a jack o’ lantern face on the pumpkin and added a witches hat to her to take it from being a more fall image to Halloween. The sentiment stamp is from the Pure Innocence Fairy stamp set. The papers are from Cosmo Cricket.

Beware of Black Cats

Friday, September 23rd, 2011

Actually I love black cats, I’ve had two in my life and loved them both so much!

Here’s a Halloween stamped ATC. The cat is stamped on pattern paper and I’ve layered a sheet of mica on top, holding it down with photo flips. I added rhinestones for his eyes.

BOO!

Make a Splash!

Sunday, September 18th, 2011

For my birthday this year my hubby got me lots of great stamps, one was an adorable mermaid set from “There She Goes”. I’d never gotten their stamps before but I will be getting more, I love them! I used a few from the set to make my niece’s birthday card. I colored the images with a combination of paper piecing, colored pencils and markers. Adding glitter glue to her tail. The outside says “Make a splash” and the inside says “on your birthday!” Isn’t she cute!?

The label dies and witches legs are die cuts from Silhouette and the patterned paper is from Cosmo Cricket.

Playing with Dominoes

Thursday, September 8th, 2011

I’m listing some new domino charm jewelry in my Etsy shop this week. And right now I’m working on lots of great new collage art Halloween soldered glass pendants. There are already some in the shop but I’ll listing a lot more in the next week or so, so be sure to check back :)

I love this Poe charm, great for Halloween or anyone who loves to read.

And of course Alice is always one of my faves. In addition to the domino charm there are also wooden game tiles  with vintage text.

This one is nice and creepy for Halloween, the headless horseman. “Ichabod………..”

And this cute one has scrabble tiles that spell out “BOO” and a cute ghost shaped jingle bell.

Dashing Through the Snow

Wednesday, September 7th, 2011

Here’s my card for the latest Lawnscaping challenge, the theme this time is embossing.

Photobucket

I chose to do both wet and dry embossing on my card. I embossed the bunny from Lawn Fawn’s Winter Bunny in white on craft cardstock, I love this look, it really pops. I added some subtle color to his scarf and the sled with markers. I also heat embossed some liquid applique on his tail for a little puff. I used the swirl embossing folder from Cuttlebug for the snow and my background paper, adding glitter to the embossed swirl on the snow. The sentiment is from the Lawn Fawn Critters of the Sea set.
