A pretty fairy

Happy Friday everyone!  For us here in Canada, this is what we refer to as “May Long”…as in May long weekend or Victoria Day and unofficially the beginning of camping season!  I unfortunately am not camping this weekend, although my husband is heading to our farm in Saskatchewan to open it up for the year!

We have a fun new challenge for you at Brown Sugar Challenge blog..this week’s theme is WASHI!  Break it out and use it up everyone!

Our sponsor this week is All Dressed Up.  They have such lovely images!

My image is called Flower Fairy…I think she is just adorable.

So again, just using some DP from my stash bin.  My washi is from Simple Stories and it is the 2 strips of yellow dots on this card!  My sequins are from Neat and Tangled  (sweetheart sequin mix) and the sentiment is from Stampin Up (butterfly basics).  I colored the image with my copics.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to stop by the blog to play along and see what the rest of the DT has created to inspire you this week!

Love is in the Air

With Valentine’s day coming up so soon, you had to know that I would be posting another Love project.

Our challenge is up at Red Carpet Studio this week.  One of my favorite movies……LOVE ACTUALLY  is our theme!  We would like to see a project about love, something that you love, a place you love, something that you love to do, oh the love choices are endless for interpretation!

love, actually

 

This week we are lucky to be sponsored by Paper Nest Dolls! 

The Paper Nest Dolls

 

I’ve got a tag for you today.  I love to play with layers and techniques so I thought this would be fun.  I got this from a make and take class I did at a scrapbook convention one year.  I just loved playing with different mediums  and making them all come together.

There is some stamping and inking and modge podge (oh who doesn’t love MP).  I really love that mesh overlay.  I don’t play with mesh nearly enough.  Paper images and some pearls and lace for that vintage feel.  I wanted to give it some pop of color so I added some diecut hearts from my stash.  Just a lovely vintage Parisian feel to this.

I hope you will play along with us at RCS this week for a chance to win a great prize from our sponsor!  Show us what you love!!!

Old St. Nick

Ahh another blissful Thursday!  It is snowing like mad here in Calgary.  Has been all day yesterday and again today.  I like a White Christmas as much as the next person but this is just getting ridiculous!!!  My son’s Christmas concert is today as well, so quite looking forward to that.  I hear that his class are ‘gingerbreads’ 🙂

We have another fun challenge for you at 4 Crafty Chicks this week.  I have been having such a great time with the ladies and these challenges.  Hard to believe that I only have one more after this one! 😦

Our challenge this week is distressing…adding that little bit of fun texture and dimension to your projects.  I decided to create a bit of a vintage tag for the challenge this week.

HPIM1321

This tag is actually going onto a page in my December daily.  I basically just wanted to start creating layers, so I cut the tag out of some cardstock and then used my Tim Holtz distress inks to color.  I distressed the edges and added a vintage music stamp to it.  After that, I just started creating some layers with a bunch of different embellishments I had around.  I inked up some lace, added some stickers, die cuts, tags and I had a cute little wooden star that I added some distress ink to as well as some smooch spritz.    Finally just some ribbon from my box and a button to hold it together.  I hope you like it and will come and play along with us.  The girls have created some wonderful projects for your inspiration this week.

Core’dinations online crop

So Core-dinations is having an online crop and I thought I’d give it a shot.  You have until November 10 to do the various challenges on their DT blogs.  If you want to play along, here is the master list http://www.coredinations.com/index.php/2013/10/31/master-challenge-list/

 

So for Katie’s stamped tag challenge, I made these two tags.

 

HPIM1293

the blue tag: I used a core’dinations core tag from their pastel pack.  I embossed it through my cuttlebug, then distressed it (with my core’dinations sanding block which came in one of my swag bags from the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival with Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine.  Core’dinations is always such a great sponsor).  I then inked it with my TH distress ink.  I punched out a couple of green leaves from the Tim Holtz Distress pak  (2.5×4.5 mat stack pak).   The flowers were from my stash and the sentiment is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.

The Christmas tag I used the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors Collection.  I used a Sizzix die then ran it through my embossing folder and added a bit of distressing.  The DP is from Echo Park and the image & sentiment were in my stamped image box from a swap ages ago.  The poinsettia is from Recollections and then I added just a bit of color with my copics and some stickles for sparkle.

I hope you like them and don’t forget to play along.  There are lots of Core’dinations packs up for grabs!

Frosty Christmas

Hi Everyone! I’m late in getting this post up as I’ve had a very busy week with a trip to Vegas with my BFF and then the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival afterwards!

We have a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges which is being sponsored this week by Scribbles Designs

sd sponsor

 

Our challenge is The Great Outdoors, so anything that you would find outside! A pretty easy challenge to be sure.  I did this cute Christmas tag  with a frosty snow capped tree which I though was just so cute!

HPIM1247

I inked the tag first with some Tim Holtz distress inks and then stamped over it with some snowflakes and my sentiment.  I added some shimmery spritz as well. After coloring the tag, I added some white stickles for snow and some little blings

Please stop by the blog and play along with us, to win some great images from our sponsor.

Love Tag

Hey everyone!  It’s a new challenge at Creative Corner Challenges for you this week.

This week our challenge is Love and Hearts.  Create any project that has hearts or has a love subject and link it up for us to see.

For my project this week, it’s a shared collaboration really.  I received this tag as a note for a swap.  I liked the look of it, but I really wanted to build on it, so I just started adding more embellishments to it.  Nothing like layers and layers right.

001

 

I started adding some charms, and flowers and bling and ribbon and I think it just looks adorable.  I hope you enjoy it and please stop by the blog and join our challenge this week as well as to see the other great creations by the DT for you this week.
