"Dream" Card using "Forever Yours" January Kit from Frosted Designs!!!

Hello again friends!!!!  I'm here today with a card I made using this month's beautiful Forever Yours Kit from Frosted Designs!!!

The colors are truly amazing and the papers and embellies all go together so well!!!  
Here is my card:

These papers are "dreamy" indeed!!!!  I used a variety of papers from the kit to create my "base", then started adding on my desired embellishments!

The grossgrain trim in the kit goes beautifully with everything, doesn't it?!?

I finished my card with a stamped sentiment from my stash and a black card base!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in and have a LUCKY day :-)

Joy Layout using Simple Stories Cozy Christmas Collection!!!!

Hey there crafty neighbors!!!  I hope you are having a beautiful month! I'm popping in today to share a layout I created using lots of Creative Embellishments goodies and the December kit from Frosted Designs :-)

Here's a look at my daughters at a little place called "Christmas Town" here in Tampa:

I started my page by creating a  my background ( I didn't want to add too much as the paper already has some fabulous designs on it)!  I used the Distressed Burlap Stamp and second generation stamping for a subtle affect.

I then used the Circle Bokeh Stamp and a thin layer of gesso spread on using a palette knife to add more depth to my page!

My Punchinella Panel chipboard piece was inked with distress ink, then sprayed with Lindy's Stamp Gang Starburst Pearls for some shimmer, then tucked under my picture :-)
Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Have a LUCKY day :-)

"Fly" Mixed Media Canvas for Creative Embellishments!!!!

Hey there crafty friends!!!  I hope you are having a beautiful start to your new year thus far!!!  I'm popping in today with a mixed media canvas using all kinds of Creative Embellishments goodies!

Here's a look:

I started by creating my background using various acrylics, mists, and other mediums.  I even used the Punchinella Panel as a stencil to add some depth into my background!

I sprayed some white mist onto some glossy paper and stamped the Circles Bokeh Stamp into it and added some more pattern around the canvas!

I altered the Spread Your Wings title with some white mist and a purple gelato, adding a gradient effect!

The Steampunk Dress Form 2 was primed, then colored using various gelatos.  I added a tiny amount of Luminarte paint on the main piece, used a white Signo pen for accents, then sprayed the entire piece with homemade glimmer mist! DSC07953

I finished the canvas with lots of yummy flowers, using the Butterfly Flair to fill in spots and extend the message of the piece!

Well gang... Thanks so much for popping in and have a LUCKY day :-)

Altered New Years Hat for Creative Embellishments!

Happy New Years folks!!!!  I hope you had a safe and beautiful beginning to this wonderful year ahead!!!  I'm popping in today because it's the first... Which means a new challenge over at Creative Embellishments!!!

Here's a look at this month's inspiration photo:

I found a chipboard hat at my local Michael's and decided to dress it up for New Years!  Here's a look:

LOVE these wings!!!  They are stunning!!!!
I picked up this paper mache hat at my local Michaels for about a $1.00!
I started by priming my hat and coating it with black glittered spray paint.  I used my Cricut Explore to make a stencil for a 3/4 inch circle.  I mixed up some silver glitter and molding paste and added it through the stencil around the hat for a circle pattern!  

I primed my chipboard wings, then used gold pigment ink to color them.  I spritzed them with Perfect Pearls mist in Gold for added shimmer and shine!

I finished the hat with some gold trim, some clocks by Tim Holtz, and Thickers "DIY" numbers sprinkled with the same silver glitter!

Well gang...  Thanks so much for stopping in!  Have a LUCKY day :-)
