This is a card I created for Addicted to Stamps. I used the Gothic Bride digi image by Heather Valentin which can be found HERE.

I used copics to color the image, vintage purple lace, black ribbon, a strand of pearls I dyed with Tim Holtz's Adirondack alcohol ink in the color of slate. I added some roses by iamroses (large roses) & Wild Orchid Crafts (small green roses). I distress the card using Tim Holtz's Dusty Concord. The background paper I purchased at Michaels is from the Recollection brand. I really love the way she turned out and had a lot of fun creating this card.

Wishing all of you a Happy Halloween!!!!

Thank you for stopping by.

Just a quick cute mail update.
This is what I sent off to my pallie AngelAoi from Youtube.

I forgot my camera at home so I had to use my cellie to take the pics. I use Fotoflexer to edit my pics.

Happy Halloween~Glitterella's Sweet Treats

Hello Friends!!!

I'm SUPER DUPER excited to share with you my very first design team project for Addicted to Stamps. I used the lovely Glitterella The Good Witch by Sherri Baldy. She is super adorable.

I used copic markers to color her, added stickles, various embellishments & trims I had in my stash from last year. The paper roses & orange pompom trim, burgundy velvet trim, and bling I adhered to the side of the jar are from Recollections. I used gold wire ribbon I found at my $1 store. I love the gold glitter on it. It's sooo sparkly. :)

I hope you enjoyed my project. Please feel free to leave me a comment. I enjoy hearing from you!!!!



Happy Monday Friends!!!

Hello Friends!!!!

I joined the Your Paper Pantry Upcycle Lunch bag swap for October. It's a Thanksgiving theme. After watching a few videos on Youtube I was inspired to join YPP and sign up for the upcycle lunch bag swap.

Here is my creation:

I used a Vintage Thanksgiving image, burlap fabric, Tim Holtz distressing inks (tea dye, walnut stain, & orange marmalade), organza ribbon trim, leaves rubber stamp, Recollection's rhinestone brad, and my handmade fabric & lace flowers.

I used this Fall leaves paper from the DCWV Autumn mat stack from last year and a sheet of this lovely apricot color cardstock. I found a gratitude quote and printed it out and adhere it to the bag. The quote reads~ Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings. ~William Arthur Ward

I used a foam pumpkin die cut I had in my stash and printed "Happy Autumn," and my info is printed on the back.

Here is a close up my handmade fabric and lace flower. I added the Recollection's orange color rhinestone to the center. I found this beautiful tapestry fabric at my local flea market and thought it would be perfect for creating flowers. I'm so glad I didn't pass it up.

I really enjoy creating this swap. It was a lot of fun. I hope my swap partners will enjoy it. If you enjoy crafting come over and join Your Paper Pantry. Lots of fun swaps to join.

Hello Friends!!!

I participated in another mail art swap last month on swap-bot. This is the envelope I decorated for my partner. She likes the color green so I tried to stick to this color scheme but I also incorporated a few other colors. I love the butterfly girl and the vintage paper doll image I used. I just had to include them in my mail art. They are sooo adorable.

I enjoyed putting this swap together for her. I used various digital images for collaging & also some scrapbook papers in my stash. I enclosed a package of various images & journal labels. I hope she likes my swap.
