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.
Don't forget to stop by and check out all the great challenges from my design sisters and try adding a little Sunshine to one of your projects.

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

A Quilting we will Go

Hello everyone another Thursday at just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com.This weeks challenge was to include quilting patterns in our projects and to include wet or dry embossing to our projects.

I cut out squares with a deminsion of 3.5x3.5 and using my sidekick embossed small flowers with a little butterfly I also added stickle colors to my diecuts. This was a real brain teaser for mer because I have never been intrested in quilting so I really had to just take the sewing/quilting idea out of the challenge and think of it as a project that just had the ideas of the same patterns worked into it.

Hope everyone has a great week and don't forget to stop by just-a-scrappin-blogspot.com and check out everyones projects.

Supplies used were
12x12 DCWV Pattern paper from Tahiti collection cut into squares

This weeks challenge was to use snowflakes in a layout, card, or any project. I looked through my stash and did'nt find very much to work with so with a stamp and a few sheets of paper I came up with this project. Using two diffrent size punches I punched out the snowflakes from a 4 1/2 x 5 1/2 sheet of glitter paper and pop dotted them to my card. I did'nt have a traditional snowflake diecuts to cut from so I found my version of a heart snowflake from my sweetheart cricut cartridge and cut it at 4.5 and outlined it in glitter glue. I added my mini stamp and stamped in a few areas and then added stickle for some glitter effect. With a sheet cut at 4 1/2 x5 1/2 I used a few snowflake brads to attach my paper I loved this paper because it just used all the winter words that reflect this winter season.

Happy 2013 to everyone!!! Is it just me or did the hoildays seem to just past so quickly???
I hope that everyone enjoyed their families and loved ones through out all the festivieties that you celebrate. As for us we enjoyed friends and family but with a sad and heavy heart we also said goodbye to my mother-in-law who lost her battle with demintia just a few days before Christmas. We celebrate her life knowing that she is in the Lord's hands and one day we shall see her again.

For this weeks challenge we were to pick an element that we never worked with before for myself I choose paper folding and inking a blank sheet of cardstock.

Using an Ivory colored sheet from my Recollections pack I tried to teach myself via u-tube how to create a paper rose. I also added chalked butterflies from a Martha Stewart punch and placed glitter to add some bling to the bodies. My stamping choice was from the Heidi Grace collection of assorted florals and I also added a few butterfly inkings by Roanda. Using my ink pads in assorted colors I watercolored the images with a blending pen. To finish off my page I added a few gems to the flowers and also two green Prima flowers to the bottom of the rose on the top of my page.

I hope everyone stops by to check out all the other great challenges this week.just-a-scrappin.com
