Createful Hearts Digis & Designs - Challenge #6

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you that Createful Hearts Digis & Designs has begun a new Anything Goes challenge today! So that means I want to share with you what I did for this project, using one of Mary's images (of course!).

I went with one of Mary's newer images, Cynthia 1920 Chic. I'm telling ya, this Flapper Girl is so pretty! One of my faves! Now let me show you what I did with her:
Of course, the first thing I did was to print and cut her out with my Silhouette. Then I decided on what colors I wanted her to be in, using my Prismacolors. Then I used different colors of Stickles to put "dimension" on the beads in her cap. Once finished with her, I cut out another piece for a "frame" around her, and mounted that on top of a black card base. I added some wedding applique from the Facebook Group, Lighthouse stop n' shop.  There's a ton of lace in there, for very reasonable prices! 

After that was done, I simply added a sentiment and she was finished! I hope you like her!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Christmas Card

Hello, everyone! I wanted to drop in today and share a Christmas card with you. I love Shabby Chic, so when I saw a challenge posted in a Facebook group, I decided I'd go for it. But I wanted this one to be a Christmas card, as I just bought this gorgeous paper and die cut from an online store called Crafty City. I love this new designer cardstock made by Prima. This one is the Sweet Christmas paper pad. Here is my card:
I wish the glitter on the poinsettia would show up better, because it sure is pretty! First, I made the poinsettia following the YouTube channel of Archana Joshi, tutorial LINK HERE. I then took some white as a base for the card, making it an A2 card. I cut out some paper from the pad, and distress the edges of it, then mounted it onto the white. I then cut out the girl image and mounted her on top of the 2nd layer. I used my Big Shot to cut out the blue and pink branches you see up there (also from Crafty City.  I added snowflakes, pearls, a pearl trim, and a pink rose trim to the card. Lastly, I added a white rose to the bottom right of the card (what's Shabby Chic without at least one rose, right??). The rose was also from Crafty City.

I entered this card into the Facebook Page Play Creative. You do have to join the group to participate. I have also entered it into The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog, #42, Anything Goes + Christmas - Twist: Add Snow. I have snowflakes. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #148 - Ribbons & Lace!

Hello, everyone! Today I want to share with you this week's Challenge #148 over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges - The theme...RIBBONS & LACE! I love ribbons and lace, don't you? And this week our sponsor is the amazing
Prize: 3 digital images

For this challenge, I'm using the Water Fairy image. I think she's a lovely little fairy, so tiny that she's able to sit on a very delicate flower. So I wanted her to look delicate, too. I think using Ribbons and Lace for her was a perfect combination! And I decided not to go with the usual pinks, pastels...I wanted the flower to stand out, without overwhelming her. :) 
I used my Silhouette to cut her out, and then colored her up with my Prismacolors. I thought about using markers, but I felt the pencils would give me more of the control I want in combining the colors. I then took a white card base and added 2 pieces of designer paper, adding the sentiment and the elements for the theme, plus I added some flat pearls.

She was very fun to do! I hope you will join us for this week's challenge! See you there! And thanks for stopping by! Please follow my blog!

Outlawz Color Challenge - November 7th

Howdy, crafty pardners! Today begins a new Color Challenge over at The Outlawz! Our Sponsor for this month is...........
$12 in Gift Certificate

And this week our very own DT Member, Kimberly, has chosen the Photo Inspiration! Here it is:
Let me tell you....one of the Design Team Members made her card using bench die cuts...and it was awesome! Why didn't I think of that? Haha. Seriously, check the DT inspiration cards! :)

I love this image I got from Createful Hearts Digis & Design! This one is called Pumpkin Patch Kitty.   I think this little kitty is wanting a fresh, homemade pumpkin pie, don't you?? 

I used my Silhouette Portrait to cut her out, along with the white leafy pieces up there. I printed out the sentiment from my Silhouette, but just used my Trimmer to cut it out. I simply layered pieces together and added a few embellishments, and she was done!

I hope you will join our Color Challenge this week! And thanks for stopping by!
