Hello Everyone,

I guess you could say that I am completely addicted to Ching-Chou Cuik's stamp collection by "Sweet Pea Stamps." With this card I used the Ocean Fantasy stamp(embossed) and colored with a combination of copics, glimmer mists, and stickes. I used coordinating card stock in pink and green. Hope you enjoy.

Hello Everyone,

Here is my first entry for "In A Sweet Pea Dream" flower challenge #5. Enjoy...




For this card, I used Ching-Chou Kuik's Dance of Butterfly stamp. I stamped the image with black archival ink and embossed with clear powder. I used a combination of copic markers and glimmer mist that I painted onto the image. I used diamond stickles on her tail. I added prima bling that I colored blue with alcohol ink. I added ribbon, butterflies, and a flower from "I am Roses."

Hello Everyone,

I know that it is November now, but I had to post these. I started these before Halloween and just recently finished. These boxes were purchased at Michael's craft store. They came unfinished and I decorated and embellished each one in a different style. Hope you enjoy!!!



This first box is my favorite. I sprayed the box with "Screaming Banshee Black" star burst stain by Lindy's Stamp Gang. The spray is still available but is limited edition. I highly recommend picking up the set of spays...I just love them. After the box was dry I added Basic Grey designer paper and leaf ribbon. Flowers are from I Am roses, they were also sprayed with stain before added. The changing face is a sticker set by Recollection. I made the frame from white polymer clay and a clay mold I created. The sentiment is a stamp set from Oxford Impression. The charms are Industrial Chic.




This box took the longest to make. I spent a lot a time making the box look weathered. I used several coats of crackle paint and sprayed with the "Screaming Banshee Black" star burst stain by Lindy's Stamp Gang. All the images and sentiments are collage sheets from Alpha Stamps.


I painted this box with a green shimmering acrylic paint. I added gold leaf. I mixed glass bead gel with brown acrylic paint to make it look like the coffin is covered with dirt and added moss. The cross is made with polymer clay. All images and sentiment are from Alpha Stamps.

Hello Everyone-

Here I have folded light blue card stock in half. I placed a Tim Holtz mask over it and sprayed with blue glimmer mist by Tattered Angels.

The black flourish stamp is from Tim Holtz. The stamped image is from The Greeting Farm, her name is Dahlia. I stamped her in black archival ink and heat set with clear embossing powder. I then used my paint brushes and colored her in with various Tattered Angels glimmer sprays.

I stamped and punched out the word "Thanks" and added with pop up dots. I added Prima bling and a flower in her hair.

This project was created using a pack of mini canvases I purchased from Aaron Brothers.I attached each canvas together with hinges. I glued grunge board alphas to each canvas and covered with foil tape. I applied several coats of acrylic paint,moon shadow mist, rub n buff, and glitter spray paint. I covered the back side of each canvas with paper and distressed. Hope you enjoy...
