To Paris with Love

It’s Thanksgiving weekend here in Canada.  We have a lot to be thankful for.  At least I know I do and I am looking forward to some yummy dinners with family and friends.

Today our challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges is to create a project that is not a card.  It could be a layout, an ATC, a bookmark, altered project, the ideas are limitless.

Lately, thanks to Swap-bot.com, I have been making a lot of ATC’s and altered envelopes (or Mail Art as the group calls them).  Today I am sharing a mail art with the theme of Paris/French.

I created this envelope with my envelope maker first of all.  It’s 5×7.  I then stamped some french script from hero arts all over the inside and out.  I then had some other french stamps from Inque Boutique that I used to stamp on it and then went through my stash looing for anything with a french feel to it.  I found some die cuts, some France stamps and some swirls.  You can’t see it, but on the back is a big postcard of Paris 🙂  I have been to Paris and absolutely love it.  I hope to go back again one day.

I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the rest of my team has created and also to play along with us.

A Snoozy Elf and A Classy Lady

Our challenge is a simple anything goes for this week and you have the chance to win 3 digis from Rick’s Store.  This week I am playing with 2 of his images, the first one is called Snoozy Elf

I just really thought he was so cute!  I used some DP from the 12 Days of Christmas line from MME.  I colored with my copics and I added some bling.  I thought it would be fun to give the little jingle bells some added shine so I went over them with my glossy accents!

The next image is called Waltz.  I thought she was very dainty and classy and for some reason, she inspired me to make an ATC.  I haven’t done one of these in  a very long time.  I just used a bunch of little things that were already on my desk

I used my TH inks for this one.  I colored her with my copics and then went over her with some modge podge.  I inked the ATC card and then went over it with my french script stamp.  I then added some ripped up paper that was sent to me in a swap.  The sentiment was one that was sent to me in a different swap.  i had that little rose in a bucket from…somewhere and then some little seed pearls.  I then went over everything with modge podge and a finally spray with some spritz for a bit of glistening shine!  I really like how she turned out.

I hope you will stop by the blog to see the other DT creations , including some from Rick’s DT who are joining us this week! There is some great mojo flowing on that page!

Happy Crafting everyone!
