Friday Friends with Flair and Inkspirational!

Standard

Good afternoon Friends,

I have another Birthday card that I created today. Lots of Birthdays are coming up! I am also playing in Unity Stamp Co’s Friends with Flair Friday.

And I am also playing in the challenge blog “Inkspirational” for their sketch challenge #54.

Here is the sketch:

Challenge #54 copy

Here is my card:

FWF-friday-4-18-14

I have used Unity’s stamp set called “Array of Bottles.”  {from the itty bitty collection}. I used Copics to color my image. And used Pool Party and sponged the background.

IB-683-ARRAY-OF-BOTTLES

I did not use the sentiment it came with, because this is a birthday card. I used the sentiment from the set called “How YOU Doin’.”

How YOU Doin' - IPK 143

 

I used a Stampin’ Up’s! embossing folder, on yellow card stock. Then I sprayed it spray inks. The ribbon is also from Stampin’ Up!

Thank you for your visit, and I love your comments! Thank you! Stay Crafty my Friends!

Peace,

Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Harmony Mermaid with Glitter!

Standard

Good afternoon Friends,

I have a card to share, I am going to use this as a Birthday card.

SNS-challenge-April-2014

I have used “Harmony Mermaid” she is a digi stamp that Sparkle N Sprinkle sells. She was created by Michelle Perkett. Follow the link to get yours. Sparkle N Sprinkle also sells Michelle Perkett’s images in rubber as well. Click here for Sparkle N Sprinkle’s store.

I colored my image with Copics, that I picked up from Sparkle N Sprinkle. Then with their “Brushable Glue” I painted on the glue then added my glitter. I do my glittering in sections, don’t want the glue to dry up on me. And all you need is a little bit of the brushable glue, it goes a long way.

For the mermaid’s body and tiara I used “Raspberry Soda.” (Follow the link to get yours.) This glitter is considered “Semi-Transparent” and like the name suggests, it means you can see through it. (Which is what I wanted for her body.)

For the mermaid’s hair I used “Lacy Lilac.”

Lacy Lilac G1033

For the water I used “Waterfall.” How apropo right! LOL! Moving on…

Waterfall G1071And I also used “Lavender Iris” (this on is also semi-transparent) on the tips of the flowers.

Lavendar Iris G1061Here is what Sparkle and Sprinkle’s Brushable Glue looks like:

With all of this sparkle who needs bulky bling? Okay don’t get me wrong, you all know I love bling! However, I am mailing this card.

I have linked up all the words and the pictures to take you straight to the product.

B-day card for a Princess using Jess College Fund digi stamp!

Standard

Good evening friends,

I have created a Birthday card for a friend of mine that goes by the screen name of “Eternal Princess.”

You all might not like my card I made, but I am pretty sure she will, and about half of the folks that visit this blog will like it also.

So here it is:

Saras-Bday-card-Jess-colleg

See I told you some of you are saying gross I don’t like skulls! LOL! And the other half are probable saying “I don’t like glitter!”

Well, I am also playing “Jess Challenge” the challenge is to use your favorite embellishment. Lately my favorite embellishment has been loose glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle!

I am also entering this card into Sparkle N Sprinkle‘s challenge. The challenge is Anything Goes using their loose glitter or flocking. To play their challenge click here!

Now for the deets:

I have used a digi stamp from “Jess College Fund,” called “Queen.” (Follow the link to get your Queen.) I colored her with Copics.

I used Sparkle N Sprinkle‘s “Brushable Glue” then added “Neon Flamingo” glitter to the dress. For the crown I used “Guava Nectar” glitter.

snsbrushableglue

Guava Nectar sns

 

Neon Flamingo G1084You can click on the names of the products or you can click on the photos to be taken to each place where you too can get some awesome products!

I used a Cuttlebug embossing folder, then lightly rubbed Colorbox ink pad in “Orchid” on top of it. The DSP is a single sheet I picked up at Micheal’s. I used pop dots to pop up the embossed paper. I used a Spellbinders Nestabilities called “Floral Ovals,” and on the frilly part of the cut-out, I colored it in with a glitter gel pen. Doesn’t show up  in the photo though. With a Stampin’ Up white pen I added in some dots.

I think the skull is adorable and it’s a “Jolee’s Boutique” 3D sticker called “Skulls with Bows.”

I typed out the sentiment and used a Stampin’ Up! punch on it.

Well there ya go.

To recap:

I am entering in:

Jess College Fund challenge: use your favorite embellishment.

Sparkle N Sprinkle challenge blog: challenge anything goes use loose glitter etc…

Wishing you were here Unity Friends with Flair!

Standard

Good evening my friends,

This morning I woke bright and early and made a card for Unity Stamp Co’s Friday Friends with Flair.

Then I had to run off and do errands, home now, and I can post and then go visit all of the players to Unity’s FWF.

So here it is:

Rhonda2014

This stamp is a “itty bitty” from Unity Stamp Co. called “Lil’ Bunny Wishes.” This stamp set is NEW on their site (follow the link to get your, and guess what they are having a sale and this is on sale.)

LIL-BUNNY-WISHES

 

As some of you may know that my friend Patti, came and visited me for a week and we went to Sparkle N Glitter and took a Gelli Plate class? What you don’t know is that I am now so addicted to playing with my Gelli plate! I have been looking for things I can add to the plat,e and for things to cover. Let me tell ya, return envelopes are fun to “Gelli Plate-up.”

Okay, so with a few different Gelli Print papers, I paper pieced Lil’ Bunny. Using a .03 black Copic I added back in her lines and the dots. Colored in her eye a bit more, this is due to the fact that I need to re-ink my Black Stazon pad. I even paper pieced her eyes so they would not be the color of her head. I added pink paint to her cheeks and mouth. The back ground was also made on the Gelli plate using a stencil that Patti gave me. The shear orange ribbon is from Stampin’ Up! Card stock from stash. I am mailing this card to a friend, I do hope she likes it-and no not Patti.- LOL! Sorry Patti.

Thank you for your visit and for your comments! Stay Crafty my Friends!

Happy Easter w/ a RSD image

Standard

Good morning Friends,

Ricks St. Dennis has started up a new challenge group on Facebook. It’s an Anything Goes challenge but you must only use an RSD image.

Here is my card:

Easter-card-with-bird-eggThe image the I used is called “My Little Chickadee.” (Follow the link to get yours.) I colored it w/ Copics.

The card base is SU CS. Then I made a Gelli Plate paper using various texture methods, and a tree stencil that my good friend Patti gave me.

The trim on the side is “Natural Trim Ribbon#129287 from SU. The sentiment stamp is also from SU, it’s a retired set.

I am so addicted to making these Gelli Print Papers! And it’s all Jill’s fault at Sparkle N Sprinkle! She is a great teacher and Patti and I had a super great time in her class.

Hope you all have a wonderful Easter, thank you for stopping by and thank you for your comments!

Good morning Friends,

I have another Unity sketch challenge card to share with you. Here is there challenge for March-April:

marchapril unity challenge

Here is my card:

marapril-sketch-2014

I have used the itty bitty stamp set called “Lil’ Bunny Wishes.” This stamp is on sale right now, follow the link. I have colored her with Copics.

The paper under the sentiment and the paper for the sideways banner is paper I made using my new Gelli Plate, I took a class at “Sparkle N Sprinkle” with Jill, (It was wonderful.) These 2 pieces are actually ones I made in the class. I just typed the senti and printed it on the Gelli paper.

For the side strip, I used “Sparkle N Sprinkle’s”  2″ wide double sided tape, I had to trim some of it off. I punched the flowers with my Stampin’ Up! punch out of the top part of the wax like paper, added them randomly, then used various colors of “Sparkle N Sprinkle’s” glitter to the flowers.

I personally adore this bunny I think she is just so cute!

Thank you for stopping by, thank you for your comments! Stay Crafty my Friends! and a Happy Easter!

Good evening Friends,

I have another card that I made today to share with you, it’s a Birthday card, I am adding this to Unity’s Friends with Flair, and their Month long challenge, and also to Sparkle N Sprinkle.

MarchApril-challenge-sketch

I have used Unity’s itty bitty stamp called “Happy Birthday.” (Follow the link to get yours, it’s on sale for only $2.99)

IB-694-HAPPY-BIRTHDAYI used Stampin’ Up’s! card stock in “Raspberry Ripple” #126842

ANGIE-1067A-VICKI-CATHERINE-LEICA-GIRLS

At Sparkle N Sprinkle I took a Gelli Plate class with Jill, she is awesome! I came home and made a whole bunch of papers. I used one here for the back ground. On the side I did a cool technique that Jill thought us, the bottom layer of Velvet glitter is GM- “Cloud Nine.” Then on top for the swirls and flowers I used G- “Pretty Princess.”

Blinged out Easter Egg using Sparkle N Sprinkle’s Velvet glitter!

Standard

Good evening my Friends,

My friend Patti came over to visit me for a week, during one of the days she was here we went to my LSS called “Sparkle N Sprinkle,” okay actually it’s not really local, it is about a 3 hour drive one way. But so worth the drive, I love that store, but I get into trouble there. LOL! Well Patti and I took a class called “Glitter and Flocking.” We learned lots of neat things, and we even made a reference book. SNS sells this wonderful tape, it’s strong and comes in several sizes. After leaving the class we went to Micheal’s and I bought a bag of paper mache eggs…..

This is what happens when you have lots of glitter and tape!

SNS-glitter-n-tape-egg

I added tape and glitter all around my egg. I then used a Tim Holtz small screw w/ an O and screwed in the screw part, on top then added ribbon from stash, and did the same for the bottom of the egg, but attached chain with a jump ring, and also used jump rings for the 2 beads and the Cross.  The plastic baby chicken deco, I picked up last year, it’s from Recollections.

Check out “Sparkle N Sprinkle,” for all of your glitter, flocking, embossing needs. Plus they do have rubber stamps. And so so much more!

Thank you for your visit and for your comments! Stay Crafty my Friends!

Peace,
