Hello Everyone,
Here we are about to enter February and I am still working on Christmas projects. I even have a few Halloween projects sitting on my work table. LOL!!! Hope no one minds a little Christmas in January...




This box was purchased at Micheal's. I sprayed with "Red Hot Poker" mist by Lindy's Stamp Gang. The paper collection is "Holiday Past" by Graphic 45, which includes the collage images. The sticker are all by Recollections. The knob is by Tim Holtz.



The number 12 is an adornment by Tim Holtz. I inked them with alcohol ink in green and added silver studs that were inked red. Using score tape I added the sequin trim around the edge of the box.







The last touch was adding a book to showcase my twelve days leading up to Christmas.



Thanks for Reading!!!

Hello Everyone,

Here is yet another project made with my Sweet Pea stamps. This stamp is called "Cheshire Cat Illusion " by Ching-Chou Kuik. I stamped the image on heavy weight card stock that I purchased from "My Favorite Things." I love this card stock...I believe they are called perfect panels and they are great for copic coloring. I embossed the image with translucent powder. Then I went to work with my copic markers. I stamped out the sentiment and added. I used black soot distress ink to darken the edges of the card stock. I used Tim Holtz's Baroque die to give the card stock it's shape.

I created this card using one of my favorite stamps from Sweet Pea. The image is embossed and colored in with copics, stikles, and glimmer mist. The sentiment is from MFT(My favorite things)


Happy Creating!

Hello Everyone-

Here is another card I made using"Ching Chou Kuik's" fantasy stamp collection. This particular stamp is called "Jeweled." I purchased this stamp through "Sweet Pea Stamps." It is a personal goal to make a card with each stamp that I purchased. I am notorious for buying stamps and then never using them. I bought about 50 of these stamps, so my readers can expect more cards featuring these stamps.

This card has a bit of a Holiday feel...I am still making Christmas projects in January. I stamped and embossed the image. I colored it in with various copics and glimmer mist. I stamped brown flowers on top of brown card stock for a two tone affect. I stamped green diamonds on top of green card stock for another two tone affect. I cut out a scalloped trim with one of "My Favorite Things" Die-namics. Added red trim, flower, and leaves. The sentiment is a Tim Holtz sticker that I popped up on dimensionals.


Here is a closer look at the colored image...I also used stickles to add glitter to her tail.

Hello Everyone-
Here is another altered canvas project. I made this for my friend Lacie. She is definitely a fashionista, so I used Graphic 45s Fashionista paper collection.


I purchased the canvases from Aaron Brothers. They are joined together with some brass hinges I got from Home Depot. I covered each canvases with a layer of gesso before I added the paper and embellishments. I used Tim Holtz grunge letters to spell out her name. I colored the letters with Rub and Buff and added some bling.




All the flowers I used are from: I am roses. You can connect with them by browsing my favorite places to shop. I also added some tissue tape and bling.

Hope everyone is having a great week!
