Clear Clouds on a Rainy Day

Hi everyone,
I am sharing a card that I originally made during my Stencils class. It was a great class by the way and I learned a lot of new techniques and saw a lot of fun products being demoed.

My card today uses a cloud stencil that  I got from Simon Says Stamp and the clear embossing paste. The paste goes on white and dries completely clear for a super cool look.

Be sure to watch the video to get the full recipe and see how it all gets put together. I think that it looks very much like rainy clouds!

Happy Easter 2014

Hi everyone!

Happy Easter! Today, my kids woke up to a small Easter basket filled with chocolate carrots and some Easter eggs from the Easter Bunny and some small gifts from me on the table. Needless to say, they were thrilled!

I am sharing the little baskets that I made using an SVG cut from the Silhouette Store.


These were so easy to put together. I used the Doodlebug spring paper pad and some cardstock from my stash and I just love how they came out.

Today, we are heading to my sister's house (a whole 2 miles away!) for an Easter egg hunt, bbq (did someone say carne asada?) and the kids are probably going to get a little slip and slide action in the backyard while I play with my 5 month old baby niece. It should be a super fun day and since my laundry is done, someone else is cooking and my house is reasonably clean, I can actually relax!

Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Cricut Bunny Card

Hi everyone,
I have a cute little bunny card to share. I had originally made the card for a sketch challenge and then changed my mind. I also didn't size my ovals correctly, they were actually eggs on the Easter cartridge but once I cut the scallop it hung off the side of the paper. Oh well, I guess that's what the Envelope punch board is for!

I was also experimenting with the Epiphany square punch and epoxy sticker maker. I show you guys in the video.

PDE Linky Party #8 Anything Goes

Hi everyone.
It's time for another challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy!
Here is my project:
I just love these Prima dolls by Julie Nutting. Of course they are meant to be all mixed media like and I have used some sprays here but overall I think that it still combines elements of my usual style. If you are every feeling in a rut try something new! I just love how it came out and I think I might put this card in the mailbox of a lovely friend who has been very supportive of me these last few months.

I hope that you will all find some time to join in the challenge!

And, of course, Happy tax day! (Only mild scarcasm intended!)

Party Girl

Hi everyone,
I am so in love with Prima dolls. I have just about every one and am actually using them for an art journal book that I started to help me get through a very rough patch in my life. They make me really late.
I used paper from Simple Stories and one of the mini card sized stamp sets from Julie Nutting. I used a studio calico butterfly that I used distress paints. I just love it! So much fun to piece these dolls. It's not my usual style but I think it's nice to break out of a crafting routine.

Thanks so much for visiting today.

Crafty Playtime Linky Party #7 3D Projects

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Crafty Playtime Linky Party. The challenge this week is to make a 3D Project.

I used Jaded Blossom favor boxes for the base of my project.
I used the print and cut function on my Silhouette and used a cut from Kadoodle Designs. My sentiment is from CardzTV Stamps. I put some yummy chocolate eggs from Cadbury. I had a hard time not eating these. Actually these are all that are left from the original package just enough to fill the container. I hope that you all have some time to join in the challenge.

Pow! Zap!

Hi everyone,
Today, I have a card that I made not using a single sheet of designer paper. I think the card would be very cute for a little boy.
I used the skyline from a Paper Smooches stamp set and the cute batman and the word bubble is from Pretty paper and Pretty Ribbons. I used the print and cut feature on my Silhouette which I love! The "pow" "zap" is from the Superhero stamp set from Jaded Blossom. I also used some yellow stickles very liberally for the windows. Super simple card but I just really wanted an excuse to use this cute Batman!
