Ribbons, Flowers and Buttons....oh my!!!!! 

This is my last week with JUGS as a guest designer and what a fabulous month I've had here!!! I can't thank JUGS enough for giving me this opportunity and I thank each of you (my blogger friends) for your kind comments and support.

This week's challenge is a 3-D challenge using ribbons, flowers and buttons!!!!  For my project I repurposed some old CD's and created this wall hanging. 

Throwing old CD's and DVD's in the trash is NOT healthy for the environment so why not create something fun and useful with them.  You can create these as single wall hanging too.  How about making one for a baby shower, bridal shower, birthday gift for a craft friend.  I'm sure you can think up lots of fun themes for making your own repurposed CD wall hanging. 

The supplies I used here were mostly from scraps I had from Valentine's Day. 

I'm teaching a class in how to make these next month for our Adult Eduation program. 

Have a great weekend and again, thanks so much for stopping by!!!

Hello blogger friends!!!

Here's a card I created using the sketch

The adorable image is Repeat Impressions #4305 (Fairy Kisses) and look how great the Webster's Pages "Lullaby Lane and Life's Portrait" papers look with this image!!!  The sentiment is RI #3924.  I used Copic Markers to color the fairies.  Other items used, MS butterfly punch, Nesstibilities circle dies, Liquid Pearls and Sakura Gelly pen for some shine in the wings.  My card stock is Gina K, Pure Luxury White and Sand.

Stamp of the Week at Repeat Impressions

Greetings blog friends,
I have to say, it is sooo much fun playing with the fabulous Repeat Impression Stamps.  Today, we're sharing "Mina" (#5701) with you and offering her as the Stamp of the Week!  If you click "The House That Stamps Built" blog, you'll be taken to the beginning of the hop with all the details of how you can add Mina to your stamp collection for 50% off.  This offer is only for one week, so if you like a bargain, (and who doesn't?), get on over there and pick up this fabulous stamp. 

I had a lot of ideas as to how I would use Mina on my card and I tried several layouts, but I settled with this one. 

The bg was created with CB EF "branches" that I inked up with Memento "Bamboo Leaves" before putting the GKD PL White cs in the folder.  The dp is Basic Grey "Koshi" paper.  I made panels using GKD PL "Lovely Lavender" CS then layerd the dp on it and stitched arond the edges.  Mina was stamped with black Versafine, once dry, I sponged TH DI "peeled paint", "mustard seed" and "milled lavendar" to color her kimono. I colored her face with Copic markers.  Once dry, I cut her out.  The final step with the image was to cover with Versamark, add superfine ep then heat emboss.  The sentiment is also from RI and it's #2501 - but I only inked the "Happy Birthday" phrase.

Please visit the blogs of Rock Stars Karen, Kendra, Makiko and Miriam for more fabulous inspiration for Mina (#5701). 

Thanks so much for stopping by and just a's not too late to play along with this week's What If? Wednesday F812 sketch, you have until 5 p.m. EST, February 21, 2012 - you could be the lucky winner of $25.00 worth of RI stamps.

The Animal In You

It's time for another Sunday CAS Outlawz Challenge and the challenge this week is to use an animal or animal print on your project.  Lots of fun creativity with this one. 

So, come on over to Outlawz and let your animal side out to play!!!

I really made an easy one this time - truly a CAS card.  The dp is from Basic Grey "Little Black Dress".  Stamp set is Mark's Finest Papers "Big Cats".  I colored the image with Copic Markers and cut and layered him with Spellbinder dies on GKD PL Kraft CS. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you all have a creative week!!!
