Rock a bye Baby!

 Hello everyone.
Here's a card I made for Lili of the Valley. I used their NEW gorgeous papers. This collection is called Timeless Victorian. The stamp I used is Balloon Basket. I just love these stamps so much. They are so much fun to color. You can add a lot of detail to your coloring or not with these stamps. On this image I wanted a very soft look, so I didn't do any heavy deep coloring. I did, however, add lots of glitter, around my image and going along the edges of each layer.

Prima Mixed Media Canvas!

 Hi there everyone.
I have something a little different that what I normally create, to share today. A little bit of mixed media. I LOVED making this. I just love these Prima Julie Nutting stamps. I paper pieced the dress but I used my Copics to define the creases in her dress and to give her some rosy cheeks! I took a blank canvas and spra painted it with some chalkboard paint. I love the shabby chic look it gives. I have so many ideas for projects using these stamps. They are really different than what I'm used to and right now "different" is a good thing. :)
I'd like to enter this project in the Prima Picks Contest this month, too.

Stitching Challenge at WOC!

Hi there everyone.
Boy, what a busy weekend! I had to work of course and I had an Origami Owl Party.. which was so much fun! Today my kids are off of school --so it's a "Jammie/Crafting Day!"
Here's my card for Wild Orchid Crafts. Our theme is Stitching. I used faux stitching since I don't have a sewing machine. Still gives a great effect... so don't feel like you need to run out and get a sewing machine. I always do faux stitching on my cards.
Well I'm off to get a few things done. This is the card we will be making at my class THIS Wednesday at This and That in Chino Hills. If you are in the area you should sign up.. there's still time!!!!

A new find!

 Hi there everyone!
I absolutely LOVE this card. This image is gorgeous and I loved every minute coloring it. I am so happy I found these images by Aurora Wings. I can't wait till I color the next image. I used my Copics to color and used my liquid pearls to fill in the pearls all over the image.

I have a few new classes I'm going to be teaching in the Southern California Area. I'll be working on a page with class updates and photos/supply lists/dates and times. So keep an eye out!

Hope you like my card. Have a great weekend.
 --Today is my Monday :o( I'll be workin' all weekend. Wahhhh!!

Anything Goes at Magnolia-licious!

 Hi there my crafty peeps!
Today we have a new challenge over at Magnolia-licious. Our theme is Anything Goes. I have never colored this Magnolia image and being so close to Valentine's Day I though I'd give it a shot! Of course it's out of stock at Magnolia-licious. BUT-- there's so many cute Valentine's themed stamps. So check them out! I actually water colored this image. I have used my DI in a while and after being so inspired by Jenny Hodges at CHA I just had to get these bad boys out! 
I hope you will join us at Magnolia-licious this week!
Have a fabulous day!
