Wonder which Designer contains the Grand Prize this month?

I really had fun with the Witch's Brew stamp set this month!!!   It  works great on a layout as well as a card!  Here is a look at my layout, Pretty Scary!!

I created the background using strips of paper, stencils, the Journal Mixed Media stamps, embossing paste, Memories Mist and gesso.
The haunted houses, spider web, spider and bingo cards were all cut using my Silhouette.   


To add so sparkle and bling to the layout, I used 1/8" Tear-ific Tape with Orange Surprise and Purple Rain glitter.  Strips of Mon Ami Gabby Diamond Mesh was also used.  This really add pretty "Sparkle".  Once the background was complete I tore the top and bottom at an angle and distressed the edges before adhering it to the purple cardstock.

 To create the tag I stamped the sentiment with versamark, and embossed with Tinsel EP.  The tag was distressed with gesso.  

For the 2nd tag the sentiment was stamped with white pigment ink and smeared slightly with  my finger.  I then distress the tag with gesso.

The star of the layout!

She was stamped once on white CS, the 2nd time and 3rd on DP.  I cut the skirt, gloves and hat from different DP and pieced them onto the witch stamped on the white CS. HERE is a wonderful tutorial on paper piecing. I finished coloring the remaining areas with copic markers.  She was then fussy cut out and placed on the layout using pop dots.  The sparkle on her was done using a glue pen and Purple Rain, Spirited Green glitter.

Here is a look at a card I created using the same image.  I will share all the details in the next few days, please stop back by.

Thanks to you all for stopping by, if you would like more details on my project please visit my SNS gallery.

OTP Project

Good morning everyone hope your having a great week!!  I just finished a project that I received from Flying Unicorn September's Kit.  I thought several weeks before starting to work on this, and this is what I came up with!

I started off by covering the entire dress form with gesso and letting it dry.  Once dry I used a blue gelato and lightly covered it, used my finger to blend the color.  I then misted the entire form with Shimmez Paints Jeni B Blue.  Once the form was dry stenciling was added to the top with Shimmerz Texturez Patina and Tim Holtz's Dolly stencil.  While the stenciling was wet a light dusting of Sparkle N Sprinkle Sparkling Snow glitter was added for that beautiful "Sparkle"!

I really love how this turned out it is just beautiful and a perfect addition to my craft room! 

Thanks so much for stopping by and remember....Keep Stamping!!

Simply Beautiful

Good morning everyone, I would like to share a new layout with you today!

The background paper for this layout was created using stencils, embossing paste, stamps and gelatos.  The new Wonky Lines Background stamp was used on the background.  I also used the pretty Mon Ami Gabby diamond mesh to add some pretty sparkle.

To create some of the background and layers the Journal Mixed Media stamps were used.

This cute frame was cut using the Silhouette files.  
The butterflies were all glittered using brushable glueWaterfallBubble Gum and Lemonade glitter.

To create the sparkly butterfly see SNS tutorial for coloring on glitter.  It really creates a beautiful look!

The paper flowers were all distressed using gesso. 
To create the watermarks, I used a empty toilet paper roller, inked it with brown ink and stamped onto layout.  

The layers behind the photo were created using Travel Mixed Media and the Crackle Background stamp.  

You can find the complete details on how to create this layout on my SNS Gallery.

Have a wonderful day, and remember....Keep Stamping!

Sweet Holidays

Good morning all, hope your day is going great!! 
I want to share a project with you today, that I gave a sneak peek of last week. It is using one of Sparkle N Sprinkle's new stamp sets.  On this card I used the new Sweet Holiday set.

To create the icicles. use dimensional glue and Diamond Dust glitter.  Using a piece of acetate place glue onto it and then cover with glitter.  Let dry and peel away from acetate.

The cute little fence and snowflake was cut using Silhouette file.  The string of lights is from the Holiday House (Elizabeth Craft Design Pop N Cut).  

The images were all colored using copic markers.  To create the snow banks I used the Outdoor Edges dies from Elizabeth Craft Designs.  They were inked and glitter using Sparkling Snow glitter.
To create the background I used a gelli plate and Cuttlebug's snowflake embossing folder.

A look at the back panel.  The small trees are also from Outdoor Edges, they were glittered using a glue pen and Elegant EmeraldGolden Silver and Silver Dreams glitter.  For the big trees they were cut using Elizabeth Craft Designs Evergreen Pivot Card dies

The snowflakes was also cut using Silhouette files and glittered using
Silver Dreams glitter.  The pretty bling in the middle is Mon Ami Gabby's diamond mesh silver flowers.

If you would like complete details on this project please visit my SNS Gallery.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  May your day be blessed and remember.....Keep Stamping!!
