Here is the video:

Crafty Gals Corner Challenges #187

Hello everyone! And welcome to another challenge at Crafty Gals Corner! For this challenge, the theme is: Add a Shamrock/Clover
And here are our fantastic sponsors for this challenge are:

Prize ~ $12 Gift Certificate

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

Prize ~ 1 digital image (non colored)

So here is my image for this fortnight challenge: Saucy Fairy.  And if you follow my blog, YouTube Channel, Instagram, etc....this is about as saucy as I get! Lol. But I thought she still had some "demure" to her, so I decided to make her into an "Irish Fairy". *wink wink*

I really tried to put a lot of thought to this, because, for some reason, even though I have some Irish blood in me, green is a hard color for me to do. That's why when I saw this type of a cut card in my Silhouette Library, I got excited and figured she would be perfect for this card! So to "town" I went!

I used my Spectrum Noir and Prismacolors on this saucy girl, and added glitter glue (Stickles) to her hair and wings. I cut out the LOVE using Shamrock paper from the Silhouette (SIL), added hearts and flower, along with some lace. And she was done!

I hope this inspires you to try out the challenge too! Lots of great prizes to be won! 

Many Irish blessings (and God bless you!),
Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw

Outlawz Color Challenge - March 12th, 2019

 Hello once again from The Outlawz Color Challenge! I am delighted that you stopped by! For this month, we have the amazing and wonderful sponsor SheepSki Designs!  I love the image that I have chosen for this fortnight, and I hope that you do too! But first, here is the photo inspiration (picked by me!):
I just LOVE this picture! It's so girly! So I thought the image I picked for the challenge, was PERFECT! Here is my card called Scrappy Sandal:
Yes, I made the image extra large, just so you could see all the glittery goodness going on in that shoe! I used Diamond Glass Glitter. And see that bow? PERFECT....cause it's got sequins like the photo inspiration has in the shoes. 

I put Glossy Accents all over the shoe, a little at a time so the glue wouldn't dry, and then sprinkled the glass glitter as I went. I found a pretty little ribbon that I thought went well with the other papers and shoe, then added a sentiment and a flower.

I hope you will join us! And thank you for stopping by!

Blessings, Jeanie Ellis - Scrapbookingmamaw
