Two More Cards

Hey there everyone!! I'm back again with a few Creative Imaginations cards to share.

I created this card by cutting 1 1/2" squares from 2 different sheets of Bazzill's Cancer Awareness glazed cardstock. I painted each square with one of the pink hues from the Luminarte Twinkling H2Os Think Pink kit. The glaze acts as a resist and allows the ribbons to pop against any added color. I adhered the squares to the card base and then stitched around them to create a quilt.

I painted the ribbon from Unity Stamps Embracing Hope kit and painted it with Luv-U-Pink Twinkling H2Os, then stamped on pink Bazzill cardstock. I trimmed around the ribbon, lightly spritzed with Apple Blossom Luminarte Shimmering Spray, added penwork and then adhered to the card using foam adhesive. I stamped the title, also from the Embracing Hope kit, onto pink Bazzill, trimmed and adhered with foam adhesive.

I created this card using Creative Imagination's Devotion Collection and Unity Stamps Enchanted kit designed by Marah Johnson. I embossed the stamped image, cut around it and adhered to the card with foam adhesive. I used Luminarte Twinkling H2Os to paint the edge of the oval and butterflies. I really like the sparkly effect!

As always, I thank you for taking the time to stop by!! Have a scrappy day!

Featured on Scrapidees Blog

I am thrilled to announce that I am the Guest Blogger on Scrapidees blog (a French sketch blog). Here's the sketch that I created for the DT. You HAVE to visit the site and see what the ladies over there created...they rocked it out!

I had fun playing with products here! I used Authentique's Journey collection, lots of different Cheery Lynn Designs dies, and masking.

I even added a little freehand doodles!

How fabulous is that Basically Bare chipboard dress form? I cut strips of film ribbon and layered the along the bottom and then added a die cut flower and butterfly wings and some rhinestones.

here's a close-up of some of the die cut flowers...

As always, thank you for stopping by!! Have a great day!

What's With All The Cards??

It's been a while, probably a month, since I last created a layout. What's up with that? It probably has a lot to do with the fact that I need to change printers and don't have any inspiring pictured printed out...or maybe the fact that I've been on sort of an altered item kick...or just enjoying card making. I don't really know, but here are 5 more cards. I made these for Paper Craft magazine's WCMD contest.

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope to have some layouts to share soon!!

Gift Wrapping With Petaloo

It's the first of November and you know what that means...Christmas will be here in a flash!! I'm getting a head start on my Christmas gifts...OK, so I haven't actually started shopping yet, but I've created these darling packages to wrap my gifts in. I used Quick Quotes Cherry Truffle line and inks, May Arts ribbon, and Petaloo flowers and sprays to decorate each package.

For this package, I recycled a Maya Road tin. This will look fabulous filled with white chocolate covered pretzels or some other delicious treat.

I purchased a chipboard box from Walmart and can't believe how little time it took to make it look like this using fabulous products and a hot glue gun. I even added a little sparkle to the flowers using stardust stickles.

This is a tiny gift bag that just perfect for presenting someone with a cash gift or gift card. Clever right?

Last, but not least, I used paper, flowers, and twine to add flair to this fabric covered gift. Fabric is great to use on those oddly shaped items.

Thanks so much for stopping by the blog today. I hope you have been inspired to create your own holiday gift's easier than you think!
