Tree Top Dreams

Happy Friday and Happy Halloween!  Are you trick or treating today?  Just gonna go through the kiddos candy when they get home?  Yeah, me too!

Today A Day For Daisies is revisiting some fall images.  This weeks review is full of sweet autumn images of native girls and squirrels.  They are all so adorable!   I am showcasing Tree Top Dreams today.


I printed this little beauty on kraft card stock and colored her with Prismacolor pencils and oms.   I sponged lightly around the panel with Pumpkin Spice from a VersaMagic Dew Drop.

I cut two tags from patterned paper using a punch and stamped the sentiment, an older wood mounted stamp from my stash, on one of the tags.

Amazing creations await you with the ladies below!

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!  Boo!

O Holy Night

Wow, now this is a gorgeous new set!  I adore the church scene and loved creating a card with this!


For the second November release, here is my creation!


I stamped the image on navy card stock with Versa Mark and embossed with Detail White embossing powder.  I used Liquid Pearls in white and glitter to give the image texture and dimension.  I also added Stickles to the moon for some sparkle.   I cut out the image with Deckle Edge Rectangles from Spellbinders and sponged inside the die with white ink so really give it contrast to the edge.   I stamped the sentiment on white and curled the edges before I popped it up on the corner.
The creations the Bloom Brigade have to share today just blow me away!  This is a must have set for your Christmas cards this year!

Wow Wow Wow!

It’s the November release from Power Poppy! Oh, what goodies we have in store for you!  Packed full of holiday goodness, this month stamp sets will get you in the swing of the holidays!
Today begins the sneak peek of Bough Wow Wow!
Two beautiful festive boughs grace this set designed by Marcella Hawley.  I chose this one:
I wanted to make this into a tag.  I love holiday tags. They are such a beautiful finish to a gift!
I started with a kraft shipping tag that I bought in Staples.  I spritz it first with water, then dropped reinkers on it, Adirondack Cranberry and Oregano.  I let the colors run all over the tag.  When it was dry, I sprayed it with Glimmer Mist in Vanilla for extra sparkle and shine. 
The image was colored with Copic markers and trimmed closely.  I added Stickles to one ornament and Glossy Accents to another.  The snow topped ornament got treated with Marvy Liquid Applique.
The Bloom Brigade has wonderful samples to share for todays November release kick off-so get to ‘em!

The Stockings Were Hung with Care…

Fridays always bring another sample of the latest release from Power Poppy…and today I have an image from the Poinsettia stamp set. 
I stamped the stocking image on white cardstock and colored it with copic markers.  I used red flock on the stocking and Marvy Liquid Applique on the cuff and sparkled the center of the poinsettia with a Stardust Gelly Roll pen.  I cut out the image and counted it to a tag I die cut and used a brad to “hang” the stocking. 
Just a sweet little tag that would be perfect on a gift bag! 
These Bloom Brigade ladies have more lovelies to share!

Dancing Pumpkin Head

Happy Friday!
I haven’t been blogging for a couple of weeks and I hope you miss me!  I’ve been suffering with a pinched nerve in my neck that shoots down my left shoulder and arm and has really had me in a pickle!  Between therapy and the anti-inflammatory I have been taken for a month now I am finally starting to get some relief.  I spent all day in my studio and managed to get several projects done, whew!

Without further ado, here is a new image from A Day For Daisies, called Dancing Pumpkin Head 1.  My goodness, these new image are so cute!


I printed my image on kraft paper and colored it with Prismacolor pencils and blended with odorless mineral spirits.  I shaded the edges of the panel with Brushed Corduroy from a Distress Ink pad.
I found this adorable paper in my scrapbook paper stash and cut it down to fit my card.  I stamped the sentiment from an old wood mounted stamp and added a spider button embellishment.    How cute is she?!

Please check out the adorable samples from our design team and pop on over to the ADFD blog to see all of the images!
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!

October Power Poppy Hop

It’s that time of the month when you get to hop around and see all of the beautiful creations the Bloom Brigade has to share from all of the new October sets from Power Poppy.
I chose another beautiful image from the Bottlebrush Holiday stamp set.   Colored with Copic markers and cut with a Spellbinders die…shaded with the die still in place, and same with the sentiment.  I painted over the bottle brush tree with glitter paint and added dimension and shine to the turquoise ornament with Glossy Accents.  
I deliberately added tons of air bubbles to the Glossy Accents to give the ornament the vintage hand made feel.  No, no I didn’t.  But I’d like to think I did, lol!  The patterned paper is from the Basic Grey Jovial pad.
I really love all of the new sets and I hope you hop around and see them all!
