LOVES ME

Good Morning! Well, today I am going to showcase LOVES ME from the FAIRYLICIOUS COLLECTION. Victoria Case did a fantastic job with his collection. Doesn't she make you want to get ready for spring?

I stamped the image with TUXEDO BLACK MEMENTO INK and colored her with COPICS. Her wings are highlighted with STICKLES. The lace, ribbon and butterflies are from my stash. To finish it off I added some KAISERCRAFT PEARLS.

This card has lots of pretty sparkle, but I couldn't quiet capture it in the picture.

Hope all of you have a wonderful weekend! Thanks for visiting, I really do appreciate all of you.

CRYSTAL ROSE

Good Morning !!! It's Friday. (YAY) I hope all of you had a wonderful week and have a fun weekend planned.

This week I have created a card out of my comfort zone. I have some beautiful CRAFTERS WORKSHOP STENCILS, but cannot always figure out a way to use them. Well, this week one of my crafty DT members has done a tutorial here that you must see. So, thought I would give it a try.

First, the beautiful image is CRYSTAL ROSE from the FAIRYLICIOUS COLLECTION by VICTORIA CASE FOR SCACD.

Now to the card. First, I stamped my image and masked her. There is a great tutorial on masking here. Then used the CRAFTERS WORKSHOP STENCIL - BUTTERFLY MEADOW and adjusted the placement as needed. This is the first time I have used a stencil and an airbrush. It was definitely something new for me, but I really like the idea of using stencils for backgrounds. I plan on playing some more to see what I can come up with. She is colored with COPICS and her wings are accented with STICKLES.

This angle shows the sparkle from the embellishments and the dimension.

Just a reminder the tutorial for using stencils is on the store blog. Please be sure and check it out.

DAPHNE'S TEA PARTY

Good Morning and Happy Weekend!! (YAY)

I have another adorable image from the New Adventures of Lili and Poppy. I just love stamps that have a dog or cat. This cute little stamp is Daphne's Tea Party.

She is, of course, colored with Copics. The flowers in her hair and the place mat are highlighted with Stickles and Kaisercraft Pearls. The precious little cat was colored with Prisma Pencils. The flowers are from my stash.

The beautiful DP is Kaisercraft Paper Pad - Lil' Primrose. The little tab on the side is also from the paper pad. There are several papers in the back that have little punchouts.

In this picture I was trying to capture the beautiful raised embossing that is on some of the paper in this pad. The paper is so beautiful and with the little tab I really didn't need to add any other embellies, but I just love flowers.

I hope you enjoyed my card and thank you for visiting.

PEACE

Good Morning! It seems like forever since I have posted. I have been super busy, as well, as being under the weather. Hopefully, things will calm down soon so I can play and try some new techniques.

This adorable image is "GIVE PEACE A CHANCE" from the Sylvia Zet "THE NEW ADVENTURES OF LOLI AND POPPY". Isn't she cute? Going to give away my age here - I can remember the flower child days and bell bottoms and peace signs everywhere.

She is colored with COPICS and highlighted with STICKLES. I did do some stitching on this card because I thought it called for it.

Here's a different angle. The embellishment in the corner was made using the POPPY STAMPS DIE - SMALL TILDA SWIRL. I cut it out with pink and orange and layered it and put a embellie from my stash in the center with a rhinestone. The border is a MEMORY BOX DIE - MERIDIAN BORDER. Before I used the Memory Box dies I only used SB for background, but after using these dies and see how clean they cut I use them a lot more. To finish my card off I used rhinestones from my stash.

Thank you soooo much for visiting my blog.

IF THE SHOE FITS

HAPPY FRIDAY!!!!

Today is the day for the cutest release ever and we are having a blog hop so you can see all the cutalicious images. This image is "IF THE SHOE FITS" from the Victoria Case for SCACD FAIRYLICIOUS COLLECTION.

You should have arrived here from the super talented Mary's blog . If you didn't start at the beginning the order is on the store blog.

Now on to the card. Isn't this image just the cutest - I love the little cricket and the happy expression on her face when the shoe fits. I know how she feels - shhhh! I have a shoe fetish. (lol) She is colored with COPICS. The clam chair is also colored with copics and I used Fun Flock for the cushion. The beautiful sparkle and glitz on the chair and wings is GLAMOUR DUST ULTRAFINE GLITTER PAINT - ICE CRYSTAL and CELEBRATION PINK. The flowers are from my stash and I used the MEMORY BOX ELEGANT SCROLL DIE underneath them for a different look rather than leaves. By the way, Susana has the MB Dies back in stock. To finish off the card I used my BOW EASY to make the pretty little pink bows and KAISERCRAFT PEARLS.


I wanted to show you a closeup of the shell. The color came out perfect, it actually looks like a shell. I first used the GLAMOUR DUST PAINT - ICE CRYSTAL after it dried (it dries quickly) I applied the Distress Crackle Paint - Clear Rock Hard Candy after it dried I applied another coat of the paint and another layer of the crackle paint and then sponged on a little DELICATA - GOLDEN GLITZ which really gave it the shell color.

Now to continue on with the Blop Hop please go to the super creative Lou's blog. Be sure and check all the blogs - you don't want to miss seeing even one image of this release.

All of you have a wonderful weekend!

ELANIA

Good Morning! I have been so waiting for this day to show you this super cute image. ELAINA is from the SYLVIA ZET NEW ADVENTURES OF LOLI AND POPPY FOR SCACD release. Just wait until you see the entire set - it is a must have.



I really had fun coloring her. She is, of course, colored with COPICS. Did you notice on the closeup her lower body? She actually looks like she has fish scales. I tried to capture the picture in the closeup, but it is so cool looking. The Distress Crackle Paint - clear rock candy is fun to play with. The sand was made using ULTRAFINE FLOWER SOFT - SAND AND WHITE with a little DOODLEBUG GLITTER SUGAR COATING - LILY WHITE. Her fins are coated with DIAMOND GLAZE.





This is just another angle to show the fish and waves.

REMINDER: Be sure and check out LORRAINE'S and CRYSTAL'S blog for more sneak peeks.

TOMORROW IS THE BIG DAY FOR THE RELEASE !!!

BE SURE AND COME BACK FOR THE BLOG HOP - YOU WILL SEE SOME UNBELIEVABLE PROJECTS - I AM ALWAYS AMAZED AT ALL THE DIFFERENT CREATIVITY.
