Summer Time!

You can probably tell, I love-love-love making little milk carton box houses!  LOL!!!

I designed and cut both the milk carton box and the roof for it on my Silhouette.
Papers are by Humbly, you can buy them here and here.

Backpack Marci of the new images from our latest release.  Sentiment is included with Marci stamp.  I paired up Backpack Marci with quite of our dies on my card - Heart Tree, Heart Fence, Tulip Border and one of the Butterflies from our Butterflies Set.

I die-cut two Tulip Borders, one from green paper and another one from pink.  I cut off Tulip heads from the pink one and glued them to the green one.

I die-cut two of the Heart Trees as well, one from green cardstock and one from the patterned paper.  I left all the pieces in one cut from cardstock and layered the patterned one over it.  I really love the effect.

Marci was colored with Copics.

Tea Time!

I had so much fun coloring our Tea Time Marci!  I painted little roses with Copics on Marci's dress to create the pattern.  I paired Marci with tea table from our Tea Time Stamp Set, another one of new stamps from our last Release.  Sentiment is included with Tea Time Marci stamp.

I used our Large Flourish Die again!  Seriously, I am having hard time not using it on my projects - it is pretty much a very essential one for me!

I used vellum to make roses with our Rolled Roses Dies (Large and Small&Medium).  Butterfly was die cut with our Butterflies Die Set from the patterned paper.

May your day be Special!

I just adore our Daisy Faerie Marci, she is just the sweetest!  On my card I sat her on the Teacup from our Tea Time Set.  See the cluster of daisies that I added to the teacup?  That's a coordinating stamp that comes with Daisy Faerie Marci!  Sentiment is from our Book Stack Set.

I used our Large Flourish Die and made daisies with the Water Lily Die.  Viva Pearl Pen in gold for the centers of the daisies.

I added Crystal Stickles to Marci's wings for that little bit of Magic :-)

Believe in Magic! {Altered Canvas}

Ever since we created our Daisy Faerie Marci stamp, I had an idea of making an Altered Canvas with her and I wanted it to look magical!  Not sure how magical my Canvas is, but I really, really, really enjoyed making it and I really, really, really love how it came out!

I painted canvas with acrylic paints in pink, yellow and white and then added some blue and green with bubble wrap.  I cut a doily in half for two corners, and misted it with shimmery glimmer.

Daisy Marci is resting on the Whimsy Mushroom.  Isn't she the CUTEST?!!  Oh, and did you notice those little mushrooms?  They are included with the Whimsy Mushroom stamp!

Daisies are made using our Water Lily Die.  I die cut four sets of flowers and it allowed me to make eight pretty daisies in four different sizes!  Viva Peal pen in Yellow for the centers.  Just perfect!

All the gorgeous leaves are cut from our Large Flourish Die.  I die cut four flourishes, two from green cardstock and two from dotted paper with glitter from Best Creations.

Heart Fence, Butterfly and Rolled Roses (Small&Medium and Large) are our Dies too!

I stamped the words in the sentiment (comes with Daisy Faerie Marci) separately on the ivory cardstock and outlined them with Memento Marker, then cut out.

This Altered Canvas is one of the projects for my upcoming WORKSHOP at Andie's Scrapbooking store in Bakersfield, CA.

When: Saturday, August 11th
10 am to 6 pm

We will also make a Trinket Box, a Gift Box and a few Cards at the Workshop!
It's a FULL day of CRAFTING FUN!

Wings - Just for You...

Well, well, well...  It seems like it's been ages since I shared some of my projects with you.  July was very hectic with preparations to CHA and I did make projects for our display, just didn't have time to take photos and of course I couldn't show anything with our new products until after the show!

I will share my new cards/projects with you in the upcoming days.  I would like to start with the card that features our new DIES!  Yep, no stamping here other than sentiment!

This card features quiet a few of our dies from CHA release and one die from our May Release:

I soooo love how this card turned out!  It's so pretty with all the sparkle from My Minds Eye and Best Creations papers!  

I die cut Wings from gold cardstock, I cut 5 (!!!) layers and glued them together to give them the weight.  Oh, and if you click on the photos you might be able to see embossed details on the Wings too!  So GORGEOUS!!!

Rolled Roses were die cut from pink colored vellum and I just love how soft it makes them look.  To make them even prettier, I placed pink adhesive peals inside of the roses.

Other items on my card are:
- Wooden Birdcage by Kaisercraft
- Paper Doily
- Lace and Ribbon from May Arts
