Lots of Wings

Happy Thursday... It's another day at just-a-scrappin.com our challenge for the week was to do a garden theme I decided to do change up the challenge and do a fantasy take on the idea. I love fairies and of course butterflies and birds. We have a hummingbird that always comes around the backyard so I took that inspiration and came up with my creation.
   Using my new collection of toys which is distressing paints,ink pads and markers from Tim Holtz and perfect pearls I just stamped and colored and painted.

Using jet black stazon ink I stamped my fairy onto clear vellum and used assorted colors of perfect pearls to fill her in I let it dry completely and then cut her out. I did the same on the butterflies and humming bird and the little birdies but I painted the butterflies with spunsugar and seedless perserves my humming bird and birdies were colored in with assorted colors of disressing markers. I then added a flowering sunflower and a strip of grass.

  I hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to stop by just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com and see what the other girls created. Enjoy the sunshine and maybe spend a few minutes in your garden spot and create something special.

Spring is in the Air

It's another challenge at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com This week was anything goes using spring colors. I decided to work with pastel themed colors and mulberry paper. This is what I came up with from an idea in a challenge magazine from Papercrafts The concept was changed for what I had in my scrapping stash. I used buttons and fabric ribbon and floral embellishments instead of assorted felt circles.I also glittered and stickled a butterfly stamp from the Tim Holtz collection. Then adding a butterfly ribbon strip to the corner and a strip of washi tape to the bottom edge I finished my project with a Happy Birthday sentiment and added a few rinestones to finish up the center of the flowers.
I hope that everyone enjoys the great Spring weather we're having I sure hope that you all have a little sunshine where you call home and don't forget to stop by and check out all the great projects that the girls came up with this week.

Suuny Days

This weeks challenge over at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com was anything goes but to add the element of the sun. I decided to scrap a few pictures of our Vegas trip that I still have to work on and I choose a few pictures of myself and my cousin in front the Lexor. I had to add the main element of the sun so I placed a transparent embellishment of the sun with the illusion of it rising sun over the pyramid.
Using a strip of typed cardstock to the center of my page,to finish my layout I added a few chipboard embellishments.

Happy Spring

This weeks challenge over at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com was to make an easel card, I choose a seasonal theme for my card punching lavender butterflies and using assorted spring themed stamps.
I also added a trim of ribbon and a few embllishments and glitter glues to add color to my brad.
Using u-tube as a starting point for a little direction on how to start a easel card (I don't really do cards) I found a easy way to understand how to do this challenge.

Using a peach color cardstock I trimmed to 41/2 x 81/2 using a scoreboard I scored at 4 1/4 and 6 3/8
folding in 1/2 on the first score and the second score was folded in the opposite direction I then added adhesive to the flap of the fold.

Using a butterfly punch from ek sucess I punched out mini butterflies and with the negitive image I inked the corner of my card I also added a brad to the center and a few purple pearls to the fold to keep my card in the shape of the easel With my stamps I added my greeting to the botton corner and with an idea of fluttering insects I double stamped my image to the center of the top side and then added a stripe of green ribbon that kept to my spring theme.

Hope everyone has a blessed Easter and enjoys all that the Spring has to offer us with pretty flowers in bloom and the birds singing outside their kitchen windows and as always remember to stop by just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com and see all the wonderful creations from our design team.

Just a Sweet Flower

It's another challenge for the just-a-scrappin design team. This week we were to use the color orange and felt on a lay-out or a card. For my challenge I wanted to just do something fun and cute so I went into my stash of cartridges and found the Disney Classics. Flower was my favorite character in the movie Bambi, he was just so cute and shy I just think he was super adorable.

This is how I completed my design. Flower was cut at 4.50 and his floral bunch is where I used the color orange I added some shimmering green stickle to the center of each bloom and I also had a floral stem left over from an older project that I added to the page I placed red stickles to the stem and a felt butterfly which was stamped in black and traced with glitter stickles also I let the butterflies dry before cutting them out I also did the same with the floral stamp and just used 3-d foam dots to add some deminsion.

So don't forget to stop by just-a-scrappinblogspot.com to see all the great designs the team came up with and have a great time creating something with felt and the color orange

HAPPY AS A BEAR

Today's challenge over at just-a-scrappin.com was to create an unusual bear without the color brown and to add rolled flowers or quiling to the project. Thank you Walt Disney for the most unusual bear that I know Winnie the Pooh. Using my cricut I cut Winnie at 3.25 and his little friend the catapiller at also 3.25 my floral stems were cut at 3.50 and the sun was at 3.75 Instead of cutting all of the layers to the bear I decided to color him. I also added assorted glitter stickles to the elements to each of my pieces. My flowers were rolled and then I sprayed them with the fireworks sprays (I just found them last week at Joanne's and love them ) I hope that everyone has a great "Bear of a day" and don't forget to stop by just-a-scrappin.com to see what everyone created and try doing a cute bear for that someone special.
