You make me happy!

Standard

Good afternoon crafty people,

I would like to share a card that I made for Freshly Made Sketches challenge blog: #429 – A Sketch by Judy

VBN-This-buds-for-you-Mar20

I followed their sketch:

 

I used the Stampin’ Up set called “This Little Piggy.” I personally adore this stamp set, and totally have not used it much.  Stamped it onto Kraft card stock and colored it with Prismacolor colored pencils. Dies by Sizzix. Embossing folder by Cuttlebug.

Thanks for poppin’ in! Stay safe, stay home and do art!

Thank you for your comments.

Peace,

You Wood Do That! Haunted Design House!

Standard

Good afternoon Friends,

I wood like to share my “Wood” project with you all. Over at the “Haunted Design House” challenge blog their theme is “Wood.”

So here is my creation:

front-1-wood-challenge

I covered a curio cabinet with Graphic 45 paper. The lace trim behind the ornament is from Stampin Up!

To make this ornament I used “Crowned Angel Pendant” from A Gilded Life. They are a new company from Spellbinders. I put metallic Rubz, rhinestones from SU, half pearls from Pizazz A Plenty, and Journey Sparkle Glitter. I sealed it with Journey Glaze. I used metallic Rubz on the metal flower behind the Angel. The lace is from stash, that I glued to a circle punch out of cardstock. I used Tim Holtz’ “Vintage Photo” ink on it to Age it.

I used a Martha Stewart clay mold for the owl. I then put on Rubz, Journey Glitter and to seal it I used Journey Glaze.

 

frontskulls-wood-ch-hdh

This is the center of the cabinet. The top Skull Key I received from Lisa Hall, long time ago. The center skull is glass and I received it from Creepy Glowbugg. The bottom one is from Micheal’s it’s a Tim Holtz.  You can see more of the paper here. I used the Halloween stack “Steampunk Spells.”

 

frontcorner-hdh-wood-ch

Left side of cabinet. I do not remember where I got the corner pieces? But the glitter half moon and star was a Jolee’s from Micheal’s.

 

 

 

 

 

 

right-side-hdh-wood-challen  This is the right side of the cabinet.  The gold glitter flourish is a Jolee’s as well.

I bought this ornate scissor charm from “Violet’s Scrapbook” store. I don’t remember on the moon charm?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

full-cabinet

 

Here is the finished piece hanging on my wall. You can see my chunky wood Poe ATC up there, and my covered book that I made in Texas with Patti, at a Spellbinders class.

I first sanded down the cabinet, then painted it black. After I Mode Podged the papers on, I used a Stampin’ Up! sander to sand down all of the edges and on the wood to remove and scuff up the wood. Then used Tim Holtz’ “Vintage photo” ink on the edges of the paper and on the scuffed wood. I replaced the handle on the drawer with a knob from Lowe’s.

 

To the DT’s at HDH, I hope this is not to frilly for ya, and makes you throw-up! 🙂

I would like to enter my altered wood cabinet into:

Monochromatic Yo from the Leia Collection at Ike’s Art!

Standard

Good morning Friends,

I have a card to share with you all, using an Ike’s Art image, from the “Leia Collection.”

Monochromatic-challengeThe Ike’s Art image I used for this Monochromatic card is called “YO.” This is just one of the adorable images from the “Leia Collection”

The 'LEIA' CollectionAll of these images can be found in Ike’s shop click here!

 

I colored my image with Copics. Then with “Brushable Glue” that I painted on with a paint brush, I added “Neon Flamingo” glitter and “Pretty Princess” glitter from Sparkle N Sprinkle.

Neon FlamingoPretty Princess

The back ground DSP is retired Stampin’ Up papers. I used retired “Pleated ribbon” from SU. The card stock is also Stampin’ Up called “” and I used a Spellbinders’ die cut on it.

I created this card as a DT card for Ike’s World Challenges. However the challenge is over in a couple of hours. I honestly thought we were taking a summer break so I never posted this card.

I have spent a month in Texas with a good friend, and I was not on the computer much. I could have posted this from Texas, by having my mom email me the photo, but I did not pay attention; and for that I do apologize to Ike, and everyone else for not posting this sooner. But I do hope you all will pay a visit to Ike’s Art shop and look around she does have some awesome digis.

Here is the link to Ike’s World Challenges.

You not be able to get a card made in time for the challenge #19 “Monochromatic” but go to the challenge blog and check out what the other DTs have created, they really do, do some amazing art work, it’s totally worth your time to just hop on over there for some inspiration, or to just be wow’ed!

I am back home, for now… leaving again July 16th for a week. I have some exciting information coming up very soon. (No I am not pregnant!) So tuned!

Don’t forget about us on Facebook. Ike’s Art Fan Page link is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/IkesArtFanPage/

Go sign on to Facebook then add that link in your browser! Share your Ike’s Art with us!

I would like to enter my card into:

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,

20 Winks!

Standard

Good morning Friends,

It is a great day here in Sunny Florida, the weather is just perfect! I hope it is good for you all? Well today I  have an altered tag to share with you all! I have used the digital image from Rick St. Dennis called “20 Winks” Follow the link to get yours!

If you are a Rick St. Dennis Facebook follower, then you saw my preview of 20 Winks:

20winkscolored-WMWell I created a tag with here:

20winks-Tag-March-2014

I have used a pre-cut Ranger Tag. Then sprayed Dylusions spray inks. I felt that if I were to use back ground stamps, the image might get lost in with them; this way the focus is on this totally BEAUTIFUL fairy! I used a sentiment stamp from Stampin’ Up! that reads ” Now and then it is good to pause in our PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS and just be happy.” I felt this was a good sentiment to go with this image because NAPPING  makes me Happy! I used a Fiskars grass punch for the bottom. So what do you think of my tag! I used Copics to color in my image.

 

Check out my post on Rick’s blog “Sparkle and Glitter.”

On the side-bar of Rick’s blogs there are button badges to click and they take you to magical places! So when you go to “Sparkle and Glitter” then you can see them all!

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

The DSP is a pack of in-color papers, I used “Gumball Green.” The back-side of the polka dots is the printed words that you see behind the image. I used  “Gumball Green” ribbon also. The butterfly and swirl bling is from stash.

The bling is for you Susan, I wanted it blingie and funny!

Sweet Valentine! using Piccot- a Rick St. Dennis image!

Standard

Good morning Friends,

Happy Valentine’s Day!

I am here to share with you a sweet Valentine card I created:

Be-mine-mime

I have used a digi stamp curtsy of Rick St. Dennis called “Piccot” (Follow the link to get yours.) I have colored her with Prismacolor pencils.

For the base of the card I used “Wisteria Wonder” card stock and embossed it with Stampin’ Up’s! Honeycomb Textured Impressions Embossing Folder #129378 (It’s actually on SALE right now!) The ribbon is “Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon” #131152. The senti is from the set called “Occasions Alphabet” #123598 I stamped it using “Wisteria Wonder” ink. #126985

The ring in the BG was cut using Tim Holtz’ die cut “Weathered Clock.” using retired SU Valentine’s DSP. I punched a heart out and put it behind the rose, because the bud seamed to get lost in the BG. (The punch is SU.)

Rick St. Dennis has some more of these type clowns check out his Zibbit store! Rick has also added several NEW images to his store he has over 700 images to choose from. He will even do custom work for you with out ripping you off price wise, like I have seen some of the digi vendors do.

Why dont you all come out and show us your RSD creations on our Facebook Page click here!

Check out my post on Sparkle and Glitter’s blog click here!

I hope I get some dark chocolate today! How about you? Is there chocolate in your future? Or did you already eat some?

Have a super Sweet Day my Friends!

Peace,

KristyLee
