Double Easel

So I went to my Stampin UP card class on Tuesday and Susan had this great double easel card that we made.  I just love learning new fancy folds and techniques.  Totally fun!  Here is one that I created for the Stuck On U Sketches challenge this month.  It’s all about the key to your heart, so keys, locks and hearts!

ATC’s

I’ve got another couple ATC’s made for a challenge on Swap-bot.com.  The themes are Valentine’s Pink and Thank you.  I decided to create them with the new challenge at Use Your Stuff in mind.  Our challenge is to use Paint.  I don’t actually have a lot of paint but I did manage to find a few.

For the Thank you one, I used paint to color the bird and on the Valentine’s day one, I used some crackle paint on the heart as well as some white paint around the edges of the ATC which is a bit hard to see.  I hope you like them and don’t forget to play along this week on the blog.

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.

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.

It’s a Love challenge at Sarah Hurley

Okay…so there is a challenge up at Sarah Hurley Challenge blog where I am the guest designer this month.  My theme for the challenge this week is Love, Be my Valentine….

Here is my DT card this week

I used some of Sarah’s great heart & fleur de lis paper as well as her Queen of Hearts image from her Wonderland CD..very cute.. I cut the image out using my Cuttlebug and my nesties as well as the matching red piece which I then ran thru my heart embossing folder.   I cut the LOVE out using my cricut and the flowers and pearls are from my stash… The big red chipboard heart is from Kiki-Art…

I hope you like it, and don’t forget to stop by the challenge blog to get the deets on this week’s challenge

Vintage Valentine

Hi everyone!  It’s a new Tag challenge over at Challenge Masters, and this month it’s all about the love, romance and Valentine’s Day.  I had to make some tags for the Kinderstampo Tag Swap and so I thought that I would incorporate both challenges into this…

I am really loving how these turned out.  I love the vintage look but am not the best at re-creating it.  However, once I got started, I couldn’t stop and ended up making 12 of them…here are just a couple of samples.

For these, I just cut the heart shape out using my Cricut.  I then heat embossed it with an  old french script writing background stamp that I had..after that it was glimmer mist time.  I printed off some vintage sheet music from the internet, which I then distressed and ink with Tim Holtz inks for that vintage feel.  The cliparts are from the internet as well.  Just some free site I found by googling.  The rest are just bits and bobs that I had lying around in my stash, pearls, bling,  little fabric flowers, flowers that I bought from the wedding section at Walmart and then just inked and glimmer misted to give a vintage feel to.  I really love how they turned out!  If you decide to make some, please enter my challenge at Challenge Masters so that I can see them!  Click here to sign up to the free forum…

I entered these into the following challenges…
