Perfect Pear Party!

Hi Just For Fun Bloggers! 

I have a Stamptangled Pear for you today...my, my. I love pears....the fruit and any pear stamps. I am delighted to have this really cool pear to work with and hope you are inspired by this card.

The pear is colored using colored pencils and cut out. I then cut around it onto black card, using a 1/8" border and adhered the two together. The background was created onto watercolor paper using gesso and gelatos watered down and blown around. When dry I stamped another new stamptangle background in opposite corners. In one of the circles from the stamptangle I put the "thank YOU". The pear is popped up using pop dots and a ribbon attached.

Voila! It's a Perfect Pear Thank You....

Paper Clay Charms!

Stamps are just for cards...

This week I've used a couple JFF stamps to make some Halloween charms for a charm swap I'm hosting.



I shaped the paper clay into balls and partially flattened them.
 
Next I pressed the web stamp into the clay and then the spider.
 
You have to let the charms dry for quite a while before moving onto the paint stage.  I usually let my charms sit for 2-3 days to be sure they are completely dry.
 
Paint the entire charm (front & back) with black acrylic paint.
 
After the paint was dry I swiped on Brushed Pewter Distress Paint skimming just over the top of the charm.
 
I filled in the spider with Ruby Stickles Glitter Glue then finished the charm off with a red eyelet.
 
After the Stickles has dried they are ready for action!
 
 
Hope you have a wonderful weekend!!

Dragonfly Fun...

I sure hope you are enjoying all the Stamptangled cards you have been treated to these past weeks.  I know they are really fun to work with.  

I have a Stamptangle Dragonfly for you today!





I pulled out an alcohol background from my stash and used a die to cut the bell jar and stand. I mounted this onto a second piece of darker green card using pop dots. I colored the dragonfly using colored pencils and formed the wings a bit before attaching onto the darker green background. A few stickle dots were added within the jar and a criss-crossed ribbon. 
Voila!

With a Little Love...

 
Hope you are having a wonderful week...
just want to send you all a little love!
 
I made this card by stamping the StampTangle Heart onto a sheet of glossy cardstock that had been inked with several shades of red Alcohol Ink.  I then added a few deep red accents with my Spectrum Noir marker and went over the black lines with Black Diamond Stickles Glitter Glue.
 
The heart was then layered onto another piece of glossy cardstock which was also inked with AI's.
Finally I matted on a red card base and added the sentiment - with Love.
 
Have a wonderful weekend!!

Good-Bye Summer. We'll Miss You.

Happy Labor Day, to those in the U.S.
Tomorrow marks a momentous occasion in my little family.  I'll be sending off two freshmen:  one in college; the other in high school.  These are big transitions, especially considering that they were educated at home for the past ten years.

My heart just might break a little!

This is a card that I made to celebrate the end of summer.  Dream Girl seems so carefree.  I want to hang onto that feeling a little while longer!

I stamped the Dream Girl image onto a blue background, then again onto black, green, white, and peachy-yellow card stock.  I pieced the image back together and glued it in place.
The hem on her dress was stamped onto white card stock, then colored in with Sharpie markers.

Next, I cut an oval from patterned paper.  I "grunged it up" a little, using a very light touch with a  large brush and dark ink and placed it over the main image.
