You are in someone's prayers

Today I am sharing my take on this month's DT challenge at Just Imagine/Kreaxions.   THis month's theme is flowers. 
I started but cutting 2 5 inch circles using my Kreaxions circle cutter and then marked the punch lines with the circle stencil.  I then punched one circle with the #304 and one with #904 to create the doilies.  I added a butterfly using the #604 punch.  I then stamped my sentiment using my Dare 2B Artzy 13-130 Prayers 4U stamp 

Hope you enjoyed this project.

Sassy Greeting Card

IMG_2193


Today I am sharing this card I created using Graphic 45 papers and Kreaxions/Just Imagine punches.  I tried something different with this card, I traced and used the Star Template without any punches. I then added some "punchouts" from punch #901 as corner accents.  I love how this card turned out.   I hope you are inspired to get punching and creating.

She turned her Dreams into plans

Hi Today I am sharing another project i created.  I am just starting to play with mixed media and having a little fun!

To create this project I started by gesso-ing my canvas.  I then used light modeling paste with several stencils I have.

After letting the paste dry, I added alot of different Glimmer Mists.  I then broke out some of my Sin City Stamps and stamped some swirls on the canvas.  I then added my quote.









 I then Stamped my "girl" image using a Prima stamp and colored in the image.


I hope you have enjoyed this project and are inspired to create!

Creating a Resist Butterfly Garden Card

Today I am sharing this card I creating using Sin City stamps.  To Create this card I used Sin City Stamps Love of Butterflies and Art Journal 2



I also used my mixed media papers, card stock, Gelatos,  Versa Mark, and  Embossing Powder,

 
I started by stamping the flourish from the Art Jounraling 2 set with Versamark and then embossing with Black embossing powder.









I then stamped the butterflies with VaresMar and emossed with White embossing powder.
I then "colored" my background with Gelatos 
I then blended the Gelatos with a baby wipe.  Because the stamped images were embossed they create a "resist" look!
I finished off my card by matting onto black card stock and ading a greeting on the inside of the card!

Today I am sharing a few projects with you! First off I want to share my take on this month's Dare 2B Artzy challenge - Turquoise and Purple!  To create this card I started by cutting my Artzy Doodles papers into banners and adhering them to my card. I then punched a circle from the Wild Orchid Artzy Doodle papers and a scallop circle from white card stock. I used my #16-193 Happiness Blooms stamps on the scallop circle.  I inked the vine with my Wild Orchid Ink and then stamped the image 2-3 times onto scrap paper before  stamping the image onto my scallop circle.  I then stamped the Thanks  using Paradise D2BA ink.  To finish off the card I added a white ribbon bow.
