dream catcher

 
 
Detail of butterflies.
 
 

 
Dream catchers seem to be trending right now and this one is so soft and feminine.
 
I made a circle from wire and covered it in lace.
 
I used my favorite butterfly die along with a medallion die and added three of these glittery beauties fluttering among the lace.
 
For the center of the ring I embossed the bird pair with aged pink powder. I added a nest using sparkly gift bag filler.
 
Very sweet for an accent in a baby girls room.

Hello Poppies!

Hello!  Lisa here on this wonderful Friday, and I have a super easy clean and simple card to share with you all today...



Supplies Used:



This card was a very easy clean and simple card to create.  I started my stamping my poppies onto my cardbase and coloring in with Colored Pencils.  I then stamped just the 3 larger flowers onto separate cardstock, colored in, and fussy cut.  Once I was done I popped them up with foam adhesive on my cardbase, and added the sentiment. I also added some sparkle with a Wink of Stella pen, as I just couldn't help myself, hehehe!

I hope you'll join us in this weeks challenge: Favorite Colors

Happy Crafting!

Pinks and Blues

The SweetStamps challenge this week is to use your favorite color(s).

 Anyone who knows me could guess- Pink or Blue....so I used both.  I want to describe how I made the background.
 I used Peerless Watercolors for the background- painted them on Watercolor Paper. I used Geranium Pink, Royal Crimson and Sky Blue..  One it dried, I stamped a portion of the script in Nassau Blue on the background-here and there. I used the Rose flower from the stencil and added embossing paste, then added some texture paste around the flower thru drywall tape.  I added some dots with White Dye ink and Nassau Blue.   I daubered ink over the embossing paste with Pink and Blue inks. The rose was painted with Peerless watercolors.
 A little Washi tape, burlap with Gesso and Nassau Blue ink and some ribbon finish off the card.

Items I used on the card from the SweetStamps store can be found here:

It's never too early to think about Christmas especially when you're making the items yourself so I (Roxie) have two Christmas trees to show you which were created with Globecraft and Piccolo supplies.

The following Globecraft and Piccolo products were used:
adhesive - Enamel Embossing Powder Fluid
tree base -Plain Christmas Tree Piccolo Accent S109, Mossy Glen Enamel EP , trunk - Mermaid Tears Enamel EP
bow - Lil Flowers, Leaves, Birds & Bows Accents A128, 24k Gold EP

 The following Globecraft and Piccolo products were used:

For both trees the Glastique Gloss Finishing Glaze 1 oz. was used to stick the shapes to the embossed base then the entire base was covered with the same glaze which became an adhesive to hold it all together.

Tree one is an ornament that hangs and 2 is a refrigerator magnet.

I hope you enjoyed a little Christmas in May!

See The World

Hello Sweeties!
This weeks' challenge is
Favorite Color(s)
I adore bicycle theme projects so I thought what better color
for Claire's bicycle than BLUE since it's my all time favorite color.
I used Copic markers to color the image and blue to stamp 
my flourishes as well.

I hope you'll join us this week for our challenge!
Have a fabulous day today~
