A little Batty for Halloween




I created a cute little Pillow box for the neighborhood kids for Halloween. So my boys are grown and in college. I loved to create little gift bags or tags for them when they were in school. So I thought I would create this darling little boxes for the neighborhood kids. It serves two purposes : 1) I am not home on Halloween because of work, so my son can just hand out the boxes that are filled and 2) the Moms in the neighborhood will see what my business is all about.
All products are FSJ except the pillow box. I created the box using We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board.

Elegant Wedding Card

This is my first post in a very long time. I still have been creating but life got in the way a little bit. My middle son graduated High School and then I turned around and my youngest graduated. My oldest son moved back home since classes are on online. Right after that, my youngest went off to college almost 3 hours away. So now I have 3 boys in college. 
I have decided to work more on my business and my creating, so here is my newest creation.

All supplies are Fun Stampers Journey. You can click on my link to go to my store. 
This card took me a little out of my comfort zone because it uses some Mixed Media products.


Using a stencil, I used modeling paste over my layer. Before it dried I sprinkled Sparkle Dust on the layer to give it a shimmer.

I used FSJ White Liner Sheet to cover the back of the silver mirror paper to diecut the intricate flowers. 



I diecut 3 large and 2 small flowers. One of each do not have white liner sheet because I popped them up.


Using Silver Ink, I stamped the sentiments from My Advice Stamp Set. I masked the "Mr & Mrs" using a post it, so that I would not stamp that.


My Layer was popped up on the base card which is an A2 tent fold.

Hope you enjoyed this simple but elegant card.
Thanks for checking out my blog.
Happy Kreating!!

Uplifting!! GIU Day 5




Well today is my last day as a GIU Girl :( I have really enjoyed showcasing my work and Unity Stamp Co.
I created this card to thank all of you for the comments on my work. It truly is "Uplifting"
Once again I am watercoloring. I used Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers to color my image. I then used a water brush to soften the sentiment. My cardstock is from Fun Stampers Journey. I die cut vellum paper using the doily die from Fun Stampers Journey.
I die cut the image/sentiment and popped the image up. I added some sequin for color pop.
My stamp set is " Always lifts you up" from Unity Stamp Co.. I stamped my image using Archival Jet Black ink.

Today is the last day to comment on my blog for a chance to win 25 stamps from Unity Stamp Co.
I will pick 2 winners. I will announce the winners tomorrow ( Sat 3/19) after 5 pm.
 Thanks for the great week and Happy Kreating!!

Beautiful GIU Day 4


Today, I wanted to create something fun. I saw this image and sentiment and thought it was perfect. It's a cute card to start my Birthday off right. Yes, I am lucky to have my Birthday on St Patrick's day and I feel Beautiful!!
The stamps come from Unity's KOTM 5/14 "Hey Girl" My cardstock is all Fun Stampers Journey. I used Archival Jet Black ink and Clear Pigment ink with Orbitz Bright Tangerine Dream embossing powder. I embossed the orange CS using Beach Towel embossing folder from Fun Stampers Journey.
I stamped the middle glasses twice and fussy cut and popped it up. I colored with distress marker and then used Journey Glaze and Sparkle Dust to give it some pizzazz.
I hope you are enjoying my creative streak. I just love using Unity Stamps.
Please leave me some Birthday love below for a chance to win 25 stamps from Unity Stamp Co.
I will pick 2 winners and the end of the week.
 Happy Kreating!!

Say Yes to the Dress!! GIU Day 3!!


   

With Springtime here, that means it's Prom Season. This cute stamp set reminds me of prom. What better way to celebrate with a few pretty dresses. I have been playing around with watercoloring lately. I created 2 cards with the same image but I used 2 different methods of watercoloring.
     The top image is colored using the Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers and the bottom image I colored with Twinkling H2O watercolors. The H2O card has a shimmer to it. The picture does not do it justice.

       I used basic watercolor paper you find at Hobby Lobby. The cardstock is from Fun Stampers Journey. Patterned paper is from BoBunny.  Die is also Fun Stampers Journey. I popped the image up with foam squares to give dimension. My image is from "Happy Girls, Pretty Girls" by Unity Stamp Co.
   
      Comment below for a chance to win 25 stamps from Unity Stamp Co.  I will pick 2 winners at the end of the week.

                          Happy Kreating!!
