Hero Arts January Kit

There are some gorgeous ideas and beautiful elements in the new Hero Arts January Kit of the Month.  This is the first card using triple emossed Love stamp, the Heart die, the included pink glitter inlaid behind the diecut filigree heart.  Pink and silver Stickles and pearl drops, together with line stickers from Pop Up Etc almost finish this card,  a tiny serntiment in silver will be put on a strip to inlay in the 1/4 inch space at the bottom of the card.  There's just no way to capture the glitter    in this card.  It is so delicate and ornate. 

The card below uses the Spellbinders #17 labels.  

I liked this start playing with the new kit (below)

Bees and Things

This bright and sunny Ornament was the June 2017 Ornament Girls Club ornament designed by Stacy Lowry and her team. It is an egg shaped base, and so much fun to create.

4x4 books

Treasures for friends.  I made a couple of 4x4 chipboard books that stand up and have various pages for reflecting, or just enjoying.  These have acrylic covers over the photoprinted pages and are bound with one inch rings with my bind-it-all.  Charms and ribbons are from my stash..  MOST of the pictures, elements, papers, and embellishments are by Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen's beautiful (but discontinued) "Misty Autumn" digital scrapbooking kit.

Happy Birthday Die Background

Love this die.  It gives you hundreds of little pieces to inlay, or to use as a full cut background overlay. It is by Poppy Stamps and is called Happy Birthday Background (#990)  For this card I used Watermelon Wonder paper by SU, and shimmer white cardstock for the card base.  The rose is a sticker  I got from PopUps Etc, and it is stuck to watercolor paper and worked with watercolors.  Tonic dots and gold stickles and a ribbon complete this one.  Cut this several times out of different colors or textures of papers.  Put them in individual envelopes and then use the letters or the diecut for inlays.

Daffodil Sprite Address Book Cover

The adorable Whimsical Daffodil Sprite is on the cover of a new address book I just finished.  She's from Mitzi's sprite collection HERE  She's colored in copics, prismacolor pencils, glitter pens, and watercolor paints and is adhered to the cover acetate for this bound address book. I never make address books in the 1/2 sheet size, but the printer got started and this was where I ended up!  LOL.  This cover was created for the Aurora Wings January Challenge #62 "Anything but a card"

 Yellow photographs very poorly, but this little sprite is bright and glittezy and ready to welcome spring.

Butterfly Sprite May Calendar Page

The little Butterfly Sprite is off from her garden hiding place on this page in my 2018 Calendar I made for friends. The graphic of the lantern is by Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen, and the Butterfly Sprite is from Aurora  Wings Shop.  She is worked in purple prismacolor pencil, glitter pen, and posca white pen on a page designed in Photoshop for the month of May, 2018.  She's in the January Challenge #62 on the Aurora Wings Challenge Blog

New Year Wishes---and Thank Yous

These cards use stacking word dies (Thanks from Honeybee) a gift from my BFF....and Happy is from a two word set that has gotten separated from it's manufacturer's folder. I am pretty sure it is SSS Happy Birthday diset, though. (Simon-Says-Stamp-HAPPY-BIRTHDAY-Wafer-Die-SSSD111559)   I used glitter paper by SU and DCWV Tack Metallicsa.  These are on plastic release film and are double sided sticky when the Metallics washi tape sheets are diecut.  The card with the tree is a Tim Holtz  #66097 Woodlands and the deer are from Poppy Stamps #1934 Jumping Deer Trio.  Other stamps are Lawn Fawn and Avery Ellie sentiment stamps and even a Studio E single alphabet stamp.  I used stitched mats frames fro Spellbinders as well as Memory Box Wrapped Stitch Rectangles.  The snowy scene winter overlay photoback was designed by Karen Schulz. (Snickerdoodle Designs by Karen)  These are touched with snowwriter for dimansion.  The 2018 numbers (negative and positive) are from the Sidekick mini die cutting machine stamp and dieset with the purchase.  LOVE that little bitty machine for little bitty projects.
