Christmas Angel ATC Ornament

I  made this ATC Christmas ornament for my swap partner in Australia.  The background text is from a Christmas carol sheet combined with Hero Arts  CG222 Music Background stamp. I tried to keep the colours on the cool side by using some silver Stickles and Iced spruce distress ink.

I have entered this in the Simon Says "gift-spiration" Challenge

Thanks for looking and take care if you are effected by the snow storm traveling through the US and Canada. Looks like it will be a White Christmas for some,  here in Toronto we always seem to miss having snow for the holidays (I will still be dreaming of a White Christmas :)

Merry Christmas.

Shadow box ATC - Silent Night

Hope you are doing well. Just a super quick post before bed tonight!  I made these little ATC shadow boxes for our monthly ATC exchange at my LSS.

There is a little copic airbrushing on the snow and background along with a few yummy Hero Arts stamps. Added to the background is "all is calm" and "All is bright", its a bit hard to see but her little song book has Silent Night on the outside.

Have a great week! Thank you for peaking in :)

Whiches wardrobe dress form

Hope you are doing well.  I was able to squeeze in one more Halloween project this year.  There was an ATC swap at our LSS.  These ladies are super creative, its a pleasure to play along with them!
I used the Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers and airbrushed with Copic markers.

Wanted to add the name of a clothing company to the ATC which got me thinking ... Where do Witches shop for their clothes?  I poled my Husband and he just gave me a weird look so I also asked the girls at work. They came up with a few fun names like Witches and Broomsticks  and ended up deciding  on Black Cat Couture Company :)
added a few fun elements. Under the dress form there is a "made in Salem" tag ...

plus also the price on the dress is $31.00

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by today.  :)

Halloween Kiddo

With Halloween around the corner thought I would play around with this festive Kiddo stamp from Stampendous. called Cat, Candy Kiddo :)
Coloured with Copics along with  a little background airbrushing. 

Love this time of year :) here is a quick picture of our front door wreath dressed up for fall.

Little bit of copic coloring & Kraftin Kimmie

Hope you are doing well. Its Friday night of a long weekend and just got home from work. Trying to decide if I should spend the night cleaning or crafting. Hmmm ..... It's a tough decision but I think I will try crafting for a bit!
Made this card for a recent copic class. The clouds are hand drawn and used as a template with  added flocking made from  cotton balls sprayed with Goosebumps texture spray and glitter.

Thinking of you -- Heart card

Thought it would be fun to make a card full of hearts! Continuing to try and incorporate pattern papers on my designs. This card was great for using up those little scraps of paper that seem to multiply. Having a good size heart punch I think will come in handy for card making. Hearts like butterflies I love to add to any creation!

Huge hearts and hugs to you! :)

Just a quick post tonight of a card I made over the Victoria Day long weekend. The vintage material has been treated with Sewing Interface to give a firm look. The interface is added using an iron and it also makes it a lot easier to add adhesive to the backing.

Hope your weekend was a great one, enjoy your week! :)

Just a quick post of some ATC I made for a class last weekend. The images are from some super cute papers I picked up at my LSS. The paper is called Paradise from the C-thru ruler company and it was alot of fun to use. The backgrounds are created using distress inks along with some super light stamping and stitches. Also created a little holder for these ATC from a 3x12 sheet of cardstock. Thanks for peeking in today :)

I made this flower by stamping four classic bloom flowers on fabric and heat embossing with white embossing powder. Cut the flowers into long strips removing the center. Then reassembled the flower on a large glue dot pressing and pleating the fabric edge. Also added glitter and white paint for a speckled look.
