Happy New Year

Hello!  I have another project to share with you that was created for DiscountCardstock.com.

Happy New Year

Oh yes... it's amazing how fast this year went.  And even more fun to realize the New Year is upon us to enjoy and celebrate with friends and family.

This fun card was created with a variety of metallic cardstocks from DiscountCardstock.com.  I used my Cricut to cut a lovely pink martini, olive and all!

Here's a shot of all that metallic glory!

Paper Pretties Challenge - PWC186

Hello!  I'm so excited to be posting today as a Guest Designer for Paper Pretties!  I'll be participating in the November and December releases and challenges.

It's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge - PWC186.  This challenge is to create a card to Ring in the New Year.

New Year's Cocktails

OK... you'll need to be VERY imaginative for this card.  Picture, if you will, a frosty and decidedly adult beverage in a fancy glass.  Now... pretend that's what this is... a delicious adult beverage.  Did my imagery work?!?!?  I'll tell you, my family just didn't see it at all.

I stamped the tree from the O Christmas Tree stamp set, upside-down.  I added a snowflake to the bottom (er, top) of the tree (I mean, glass) to give it a base.  It's plausible, right?

I covered my lacey glass with a coating of Glossy Accents after coloring in a bit of lemony liquid.  A snowflake (or rather, a lemon slice) adds appeal (sorry... bad joke) to the top of my glass.

So, what do you think?

Be sure to stop by the Paper Pretties Blog for more inspiration and details on how to participate.  I think prizes are a part of the deal too!

It's time for another Paper Pretties Challenge - PWC185.  This challenge is to create a project with Snow as the theme!

Let It Snow

This couple is darling, aren't they?  I stamped the Snow Snuggles couple and colored with copic markers.  I gave the sky a few blasts with my airbrush to add in a bit of color.  When I was satisfied with the coloring, I held my clear Atyou Spica pen in the airbrush and added sparkle over the entire image.  It's so shimmery in real life.

Winter Wonderland

I stamped my Snowman Scene (I-651) with a grey ink.  It's such a soft look... a little dreamy.  I layered on teal papers and added a clear snowflake shape.  This would make a great holiday card because it's easily mass-produced... my favorite kind of holiday card!

This was a blast to create!  I stamped the ship from the Ahoy Matey set, colored with copic markers and carefully trimmed.  It's bobbing in a sea of cardstock, with the ripples of waves made from a rick rack die.  Fun, right?

Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge - Shiny and Bright

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a card or project that is Shiny and Bright.  The project can use metallic papers, crystals, or metal-toned pearl pens!  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

Snowflake Brooch

This week, I opted to make a brooch, using Snowflake Jewel (C-975) as my basis.  I think what drew me to this particular image is all the potential to add crystals.  In addition, the shape is lovely and the proportions (1.5" x 2") makes for a perfect sized fashion accessory.

The steps to create a personal piece of jewelry are very easy.  I stamped the Snowflake Jewel (C-975) image on black cardstock with Versamark ink.  I embossed with silver embossing powder.  I filled in some of the open spaces and the smaller dots with Silver pearl pen - but you could easily add smaller Swarovski crystals.  I glued SS12 Crystals and teardrop crystals (8 mm x 4.8 mm) into the snowflake.  To seal everything, I covered the entire front (not covering the jewels) with Glass Effects Gel.  I adhered a pin back onto the reverse side with Glass Effects Gel.  In fact, to make this an incredibly sturdy piece, I coated the entire back side of my snowflake with Glass Effects Gel and then pressed the pin back into the wet surface.  The finding slipped into the layer and is securely embedded into the shiny exterior.

Here's a picture of my daughter modeling the brooch.
I think it's the perfect scale pin to dress up a scarf or a winter coat.
I'd love it if you stopped by to visit the other designers for more inspiration.  And don't forget you can join in our fun!

Brew Your Coffee

Have I mentioned how much I love sketches?  I do!  They are the perfect way to start a project.  With sketch in hand, I pick my main image and hunt down the perfect patterned paper.  I had fun coloring the Brew Your Coffee image in bright colors.  It's just darling in reds, yellow and green!  And I followed the sketch to a T.

This week our challenge was to create a holiday tag.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

A Gift for You

I really love to create tags.  Their small size packs a big design punch on a gift.  I stamped Prancer (F-819) on a manila tag.  After coloring with copic markers, I added a little cream and red Pearl pen as details.  I carefully trimmed and layered on another tag made of patterned paper.  Super fast and simple.

Winter Luminaria

Hello!  I have another project to share with you that was designed for DiscountCardstock.com

Winter Luminaria

I felt inspired to create a luminaria when I saw the lovely richness of the Posh Hemlock Felt cardstock.

I started with an 8.5" x 10.5" sheet of Posh Hemlock Felt cardstock.  I kept this very simple by cutting a stand of pine trees with my Cricut approximately 2.5" from the bottom of the cardstock.

Before I scored or adhered the sides / bottom of the box, I added a panel of Clear Translucent Vellum to the inside of the box.  Then, I carefully scored the cardstock along the "long side" at 2", 5", 7" and 10".  I flipped the cardstock and scored at 2" to create the bottom.

Add a battery operated flickering "candle" to make this a stunning addition to your home decor all winter!

Lisa

Paper: Posh Hemlock Felt cardstock and Clear Translucent Vellum 40# from DiscountCardstock.com

Doesn't this guy look like a major league ball player?  I just love his stance!  I stamped and colored with Copic markers, keeping the design fairly simple.  A Nestabilities circle die was transformed into a baseball.

This week our challenge was to create an ornament.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

Poinsettia Ornament

Oh my word!  This was a fun challenge!  I made this ornament in one afternoon and had a lot of fun doing it.

For the ornament itself, this started as a clear, plain glass ornament.  I painted the outside of the ornament with red paint.  Once it was dry, I coated the entire outside of the painted oranment with liquid glue.  I used Mod Podge.  I coated (and wore) with glass microbeads.  I set the ornament aside to dry.

To create the topper, I stamped the Poinsettia Topper Sm. (H-644) once on red cardstock and the Poinsettia Topper Lg (J-643) twice - once on red cardstock and once on green cardstock.  I added some highlights to the flower and leaf petals with Copic markers and then coated with Mod Podge.  I sprinkled liberally with the glass microbeads and allowed to dry.  I should note here that I didn't cut out my flowers / leaves until I had coated with the microbeads and allowed to dry.  That ensured that the beads coated the entire image.  I trimmed from the cardstock and layered on my ornament.

Here's a view from the top of my ornament:

This will be a beauty on my tree this year!!!  Look at all that shimmer!

Outlines Rubber Stamps Challenge - Gift Card Holder

Hello!!!  It's Monday and time for a new Outlines Rubber Stamp design team challengeJoin the Design Team in our weekly challenges with a chance to win a $25 Gift Certificate each week!  Please check out the details of how to play and win on the Outlines Blog

This week our challenge was to create a gift card holder.  I hope you'll create along with us this week!

Jolly


I used to worry about giving a gift card to someone.  I'd feel guilty because it wasn't a gift, something they could open.  It's silly, really, because I LOVE gift cards.  I get to shop guilt-free when I get one and love that I get to pick!!!  So, to make myself feel better about giving them, I create pretty and innovative gift card holders to make the recipient feel loved.

I stamped the Season (D-315) image with Strawberry ink and die cut with a circle Nestability die.  I colored the stars with a copic marker and added Holo Iridescent Glitter Liner.  To hold my gift card, I made a small "library" card style pocket and cut a small notch in the front.  It's integrated into the design of the card... sneaky, right?

Here's a view of the gift card pulled out:
