Papercraft Business Challenge #6

Hi, crafters! How exciting! We're already on a new challenge - #6 to be exact! I can hardly believe this makes 6 months since we've started these. Once again, these challenges are always ANYTHING GOES; however, we offer twists as well. This one is no exception: the twist is Mother's Day! It can be a card, scrapbook page, mixed media, tag, a 3D project....Anything (family friendly, of course!)

The prize for this month is a great Lawn Fawn Mother's Day Border Die. 

Now let me share with you my project. It's something I haven't done in a long time, so it took me 3 tries to get the shape right. I thought a Tussie Mussie would be an awesome, elegant, classy way to give Mom a special way to hide a Mother's Day gift inside! Here it is:
Front

Back
I had to show the back of the Tussie, as the lace is so beautiful and elegant. I got it from a place on Facebook known as Pamela Joys House of Art and Design. 

So I started off by gathering some Prima paper I had in my stash, about a 9x9 sheet. I rolled it from one corner to the other, and shaped it into a cone as I went along. It took me 3 tries, but I finally managed it! I'm sure there's an easier way! Haha

I then glued it together and punched holes on either side of the top and strung my lace handle through that. To cover the inside to hide the lace "knots" to hold the handle on, I added more lace to the inside top. I then trimmed the top outside edge with my gorgeous lace and then with the dangly pearls. I added bling to the front of the tussie, and also added a hanging charm from the bottom of it with lace around that.

I sure hope you will join us for this month's challenge! We love to see what you create! Thank you for stopping by! I would love it if you would subscribe to my blog!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #164 - Anything Goes!


Hello everyone! It's time for another challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenges! This one is #164 - Anything Goes! This week we have 3 amazing sponsors! They are:



Polkadoodles
Prize ~ $15 Gift Certificate




Lemon Shortbread
Prize ~ 3 Digital images




OddBall Art
Prize ~ 3 Digital images

How awesome is that??!! Three sponsors for this week! So now I want to share with you my project for this bi-weekly challenge! My image is from Lemon Shortbread Digital Stamps called Butterfly Girl. And I absolutely love her! Since this is an Anything Goes challenge, I decided this time around I'd make a tag. I love making tags, and my supply of them are proof! Haha! So here she is:
                                          
Without going into a lot of detail, I simply cut her out and colored her in with my Prismacolors. I used my Silhouette to cut the open design tag out and covered the back of it. I also added lace, and colored a Scrapiniec Chipboard I got from Crafty City. I then added all my embellishments and my sentiment, along with some lace and pearls.

I sure hope that you come join us in this challenge! Lots of prizes to go around! And thank you so much for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge - April 17th, 2018

Hello crafters! I'm so excited to be sharing with you another Outlawz Color Challenge project! This month our sponsor is 
Our winner will get a $10GC!
And here is our photo inspiration chosen by fellow DT member, Kimberly.
Another awesome inspirational photo! Thank you, Kimberly! So you see, there are 5 colors, but with a Twist! Let's "Add Texture"! Here is the card that was inspired by the photo:
I used the image called The "O" Look. I love it! It's so cute!  As you can see, I have all the colors on the card. The texture I used was made by using an embossing folder, and the little shaker card I was given from someone through a swap.  Also, the raised stickers give it more texture. I used my markers to color him in. 

I hope that you will join us for this challenge! So fun! Thanks for stopping by!

The Outlawz Color Challenge April 3, 2018

Hello, everyone! Today begins a new challenge over at The Outlawz Color Challenge!  And for the month of  April we have the amazing sponsor

Our winner will get a $10GC!
Now let's take a look at our Inspiration Photo chosen by fellow teammie Ursula! 
I absolutely love the colors in this photo! And then the added twist....Add Metal! Wow! What a great combination! Now let me share with you my project. I decided I'd make a tag out of my digital:
I love this floral image. It's such a pretty image to work with. I cut out the tag foundation with a light chipboard piece, added paper and a decor on top of that. I colored my image with my Prismacolors. Of course, it needed some lace and trim, right?? My metal pieces are the butterfly and the metal leaves underneath the rose. Oh, FYI, I used the Gold metallic Prismacolor pencil for the metal bucket too. 

I hope that you will join us for the challenge this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Createful Heart Digis and Designs Challenge #13!

Hello, crafters! Today started a new Challenge over at the Createful Heart Digis and Designs Challenge Blog! We hope you will join us! This month, it's ANYTHING GOES with an Optional Twist: Add Lace. I LOVE lace! So of course, it was no option for me...I did it! So here's my card:
For my card, I decided to go with the Ahna digital. I love the vintage look, so this image was perfect for it. And of course, adding lace even better! While my lace is on the bottom of the card, I thought her neckline also looked a little lacy, so I left that with only a black edging. The cherry blossoms on the bottom right were flowers I had made, while the leaf applique was from KPKre8tions . She has some wonderful product there. 

I discovered something new (for me anyway). I'm now using Bristol paper to color in my images, and it actually seems to be working so much better than the paper I had before. So I printed her on the paper, colored her, and then hand cut her out (my SIL mat was messed up, so needless to say I sure missed it cutting out the digital for me!). 

I sure hop you will join us for the blog challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
