The Outlawz Color Challenge - May 23rd

Hello, fellow crafty pardners! I'm so glad you stopped by! Today starts the new Color Challenge over at The Outlawz!   And our sponsor for the month of May is Mari Digis Designs.

Here is our Theme for this week: Monochromatic! I love monochromatic! It can be any color, as long as it's in the same color family. Here is a sample of color:
One of our DT's used these colors, and it looks fantastic! Now on to my card:
I'm not one to really say, wow! I love the card I just made! But I really do like this one! The colors came together quite well! I was concerned that the butterfly colors wouldn't work, but they matched almost perfectly! 

Of course, I normally start out with coloring a digital if I use one, then make my card base. But in this case, I made my butterfly the day before. I had actually made 2, but only needed one on the card. I used a Tim Holtz butterfly die which has an embossing butterfly with the die. I used white card stock for the embossed part and black for the intricate die. (TIP: Placing the die onto a couple of folded fabric softener sheets and then running it through your machine will help pull the excess pieces away from the die once you cut it onto your card stock.) Once I had both pieces cut out, I adhered them with my Art Glitter Glue, then took colored Stickles in various places of the butterfly, including the body. After that dried, I used Glossy Accents all over the butterfly and sprinkled diamond glitter glass from Reneabouquets.  I let that set overnight. I wish you could see the sparkle in this butterfly!

I made the card base out of white and distressed it with TH distressing inks. I cut out a piece of printed card stock into the form of what looks like a "K" and a slim piece to put underneath it on the left side of the "K". I used my distressing tool to distress each side of the paper. 

I hot glued a piece of lace on top of the printed card stock, then some white twine in the center on top of that. I placed some white leaves and pearls sprays, then added the flower. Lastly, I hot glued my butterfly onto the card, next to the flower.

I hope you enjoyed this card! And I definitely hope you join in on the challenge this week!

Crafty Gals Corner Challenge #123 - Flowers

Hi, crafty peeps! Today has started a new challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner! I sure hope you can join us this week. This week is one of my favorite challenges: Flowers. I love making flowers, although my arthritis in my hands make it more difficult nowadays. Our sponsors for this week are:

Digital Delights
Digital Delights by Louby Loo
Prize: $5 Gift Certificate

Join us at Miss Daisy Stamps Create & Share Facebook Group to meet the artists, 
share fun & inspiration, receive freebies and special deals. See you there!

Let me show you what I created with my digital, Daisy Girl.  She was so fun to color...plus she has a flower already in her hands, so that made it easier to do the theme, don't you think? 😉 

I started first off by coloring her with my markers. Then I set her aside and cut out my base card and embossed the front of it, with flowers. I mounted a white piece of cardstock on top of that with gold foiled hearts (hearts and flowers go together, right?). I then cut out some flower petal layers and put them together, making 3 of them. Oh, before I forget, I used my Silhouette to print out designer paper and used it to cut my flowers out. I then layered everything together...Daisy Girl, flowers, sentiment, etc. And she was done!

I hope that you join us this week! Thanks for stopping by!

Outlawz Color Challenge May 16th

Hello, crafty pardners! It's so good to "meet" you here again! Can you believe that we're in the middle of May already?? Mother's Day has already come and passed! That means it's time for another challenge here at The Outlawz. Our sponsor for the month of May is Mari Digis Designs.

So, now on to this week's photo inspiration. This is such a lovely photo...the colors are unique and so pretty! They remind me of Spring. Here it is:

See what I mean? So many options! Now on to my project:

This image is called C12. Isn't she adorable? With the colors of the photo inspiration inspiring Spring in me, I decided to use the bright of colors as much as possible. I used my markers to color her. On the background of the tag, I used designer paper I had in my stash, then stenciled flowers on the background, and lastly added lace in angles. I also added flowers I made and rhinestone. A little glue glitter was used on her hat, clothes and shoes. I trimmed the outside of the tag with a corded yellow trim, adding lace and pearls to the bottom. On the upper right corner I added a hummingbird from Reneabouquets.

I hope you come by and join in on the challenge! It's anything goes...just make sure you use 3 colors or more from the photo. 

Thank you for stopping by!

ScrapbookingwithM.E. GDT #2 Project

Hello, crafters! I want to share with you my 2nd Project with ScrapbookingwithM.E. Boutique as one of their Guest Designers for this month! I had a lot of fun making this one! I will share links below for products used...plus you can check out my YouTube Channel for the video! Now on to my project!

I wanted to do something just a little differently than I've done before, and yet on the same line as a Home Decor. This one involved using 5-5x7" flat panel canvases. Here it is:
 Full View of Completed Project

Angled View of Project

I wanted to give this a feeling of a "garden", using the Botannical Ephemera by Tim Holtz. (All links will be given below.) I had a video of the actual process, and then things happened. I lost my process video with weather and unforeseen incidents. I wasn't a happy camper. let me tell you! So instead I shared how I did the process and also did a little tutorial in the video. Please be sure to check it out below.

My Process:
Each canvas was covered with the TH Paper Stash. I used my Art Glitter Glue to adhere lace around each of the sides of the canvases. I then used TH Distress Ink around the edges of the laces to give it more of an antique look to it. After sorting all the ephemera, I placed ones I wanted to be together in piles, and then started adhering them to the canvases. Some of them were glued on flat, and other pieces I used 3D foam to raise them. The frame on the very last canvas (last one on right), is one I cut out using a TH die and gave it a "glassy" look. The tutorial is on that. 

My husband got out his handy dandy tools and wood pieces, and put the canvases together for me. I also had him put smaller pieces of wood between the canvases that I wanted raised some. I knew foam squares wouldn't work for this. 

Here is my video. I hope you enjoy it! 

I hope you will check out the links to the boutique (both on Facebook and the Online Store), and also to my YouTube video! Here are links to the boutique and product below:

Tsunami Rose Designs DT Project Share

Hello, fellow crafters! It's time once again for another project share from Tsunami Rose Designs (TRD) I will share more links below. 👀 I love using this journal kit! It's called Kitten Memoirs, and since I have a kitty named Mittens, I thought it would be perfect to alter a cigar box and put pictures, memorabilia, and so on in it. Can you tell I love my cat?

So here is what I came up with:
Top View

Top Angled View

Front View

Inside Top View

Inside Bottom View

Another Top Angled View

Tags with Pockets

I love these papers! They print so clearly! Altering this was a lot of fun! I always use Gesso on my projects first, unless they're going to be completely covered with paper. As for this box, I wanted to leave a little white around the edging, hence using the Gesso. Once I painted it, I set it aside to dry so I could work on the papers I wanted to print out. I then covered the outside with some solid cardstock I had in my stash, and then used various cards and such for the decorations. 

I fussy cut a few pieces out and gave them a "glass" look by coating them with double embossing clear powder. Then I cut out my journal cards. I used one of them as a pocket for my larger tags (the one with the pink lace on front of it). All those were placed inside the cigar box.

Inside the box, I used TRD Kitty Memoirs paper to cover. I also decorated the inside of the lid. One of the decorations is a pocket with mini-tags. I also used silver glitter washi tape on the inside edge of the box and an applique on the inside bottom, just to give it a little more "pizzaz"!

Now, I also want to mention that I used some Prima mist spray to give the colors on the outside papers a little less of brightness to it. That was just to give it more of a shabby chic look to it. I was very pleased with the colors.

I hope you enjoyed this project! Please be sure to check out all the links below to Tsunami Rose Designs!

The Outlawz Color Challenge - May 9th

Hello, everyone! Today I want to share with you this week's Color Challenge over at The Outlawz!
This month our sponsor, Mari Digital Designs, has given us 3 digitals to play with, and we will give those digis to our lucky winner!
Here is the Photo Inspiration for this week:
Use 3 of the 5 Colors - Name the colors
Pretty colors! Very unique! Now here is my card for this week:
I used the kind of rusty/tan color, blue, and yellow. I used my markers to color her rather than my Prismacolors this time, as I'm trying to "stretch my comfort zone". After I colored her, I embossed my card foundation, then layered a lattice die cut on top of that. I then placed the digital on top, adhering her with 3d foam squares. I added flowers to add more color to the card.

I love white on white cards, with a pop of color! So don't be surprised if you see more in my future! ;)

I hope you join us for this week's challenge! It's always wonderful to see all the talent out there! Thank you for stopping by!
