Julie Nutting Doll In Lace, Glitter and Bling

Hi All,

Deborah here posting another creation I made for Crafty Card Gallery
to go with our theme – female birthday for the month of March.

I know it’s a bit late but before I posted had to make sure that my swap partner received it as I had joined Scraps Of Darkness and Scrap Of Elegance facebook page Doll Tag Swap.

I always wondered why everyone loved using these Dolls and so I thought, “I gotta see what all the excitement is about them”. And I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed coloring and embellishing this doll. There is so much versatility in using these Doll Stamps. This one was an image that was previously given to me by a friend but I did go out and purchase one from Hobby Lobby. (heheheheeee)

So here is my doll tag and supplies –

Stamp – Julie Nutting Doll stamp (I don’t know the name)
Paper – Authentique – Classique Pretty and Tags
Ink – TH Distress – black soot, spun sugar; colored with Copics
Accessories – ribbon – pink; seam binding – dyed using black soot; Lace; Prima Marketing – Gold flower center, Say it in Crystals;
Stickles – ice glade; Stampendous – Frantage embossing powder used Shabby pink (for the background)
**Stash – flowers

***Close Up – you can see the Frantage spread around the

tag and image.

***To get her dress to look poofy I folded up a piece of paper
like a skirt gluing that down first and then added the Lace
on top of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by to visit us we appreciate all your comments.Hope you have a great day and stay Crafty!!

Hugs,

A Little Color Of Happy

Happy Friday All,

Deborah here sharing a Birthday card I made for this months theme – Female Birthday.  
Do you have any special “female” family members or friends you need a Birthday card for within the next few months?? Well the card I am sharing today is a card you can make using any thing you have on hand. As long as you have few sheets of patterned paper, punch, brads or color sprays.  
I made this easy card today using a square punch, corner punch and a border punch, and Recollections brads,a couple of DCWV paper stack and a A2 card (pre-embossed) from their card/envelope stack. I also used Prima Bloom Sprays. (All supplies listed below)
For the card I made below I did use a sketch from DCWV blog. 
Here is my card: 
I sprayed the outside of my card first with my Color Bloom Sprays, set aside to dry. 
I punched out 10 squares and used my corner punch on opposite side of the 
squares for the odd shape, and layered. 
I used the Martha Stewart Daisy Edge punch, wrapped pink twine around 4 times. 
Fussy cut the flower, the brown border flag with the
orange sentiment. Used 5 Recollections brads – 1 on flower & 4 on the
punched border. 
Supplies:

Papers – DCWV – Collage Art paper stack; the Celebration paper stack (Happy Birthday sentiment only); DCWV – A2 card/envelope stack (pre-embossed)
Inks – Prima Color Bloom Sprays – Cotton Candy, Soft Teal; Iris
Accessories – Recollections brads- Fall; Martha Stewart – Daisy edge punch; Corner punch;pink twine from stash

Happy Birthday Sweetie

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share my card I created for this month’s birthday theme challenge.  
I have been really into pastel colors lately and decided I would start with a pink piece of 8 1/2″ x 5″ which I folded in half to create the card base. I cut a piece kraft and printed cardstocks slightly smaller than the front and inked all the edges before adhering to the base of the card. 

Next I glued a mint green doily to the base along three scraps of patterned cardstock from my scrap stash and trim.

The cupcake image is a printable that I sized up. I distressed the edges and inked. I added a sequin and a Dew Drop to the top of the cupcake and tada…finished! ๐Ÿ™‚ If you have any questions about this card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Friday is awesome and enjoy creating!


Birthday Card!

Happy Ides of March!  And Happy Birthday to me!!!
This month’s theme is Birthday cards (since March is my birthday month).

I wanted to share a few cards with you… I’ve been on the design team over at http://cardadaychallenge.blogspot.com/  so I’ve been making quite a few cards lately… so these are a few of the birthday cards I’ve done for them…
So I’ll give you a few ๐Ÿ™‚

Wanted a simple black & white card with just some color.  Wanted to make the balloons pop, and have it be just a cute little card.  These are great adorn it watercolor sheets I picked up at CHA.  
Supplies – Adorn It watercolor sheet, Zig clean color pens, ATG, water & paintbrush.
I am obsessed with the Zig pens – I had bought the 24 set at the scrapbook expo – and now have bought the 60 set on Amazon (cheaper than I paid for the 24) – Zig

I thought this would be a great use of a  paper pack where all of the papers coordinate and the paper is double sided.  It needed more pop after it was done so I added some embellishments and wink of stella.  I used the deco foil with dies for the first time – super easy!!!
Supplies – Close to my heart Sangria paper pack, craft easy tear tape.   icraft Deco foil, i craft easy cut adhesive, wink of stella gold, queen & co pearls, banner dies from stamps of life & sizzix.  Birthday dies (Not sure of brand).

Elizabeth craft designs sticker,

Zig Kuretake Markers

Stampinโ€™ Up wildflower memory, sketched birthday
Detail white embossing powder, clear embossing powder

Zig Kuretake Markers
Watercolor brush

And I wanted to share with  you that I’ve been working on some “not cards no paper” crafts – I feel like I’m cheating on cards – but wanted to share with you that I’ll be posting some stuff with items I got at CHA – and I’m excited.  It’s been pretty challenging for me (outside of my comfort zone)… but I wanted to try something new (and do scary stuff – a la Year of Yes – a great book if you haven’t read it yet).
I’ve also gotten quite a few new crafting goodies (I bought the Mint, and some other cool stuff) so there will be some new things ๐Ÿ™‚
So stay tuned!
Have a great day!  I think I need to go find some birthday cake!


Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi all,

Deborah here with a Valentine’s Day share. I know Valentine’s is over, but our Theme for this month is Love/Sweets so I made a banner for Valentine’s Day and thought I would share.

For my banner I used an old tag that I traced on Kraft cardstock and then cut out. I placed eyelets at the top of the tags and ran lace through each one.
Supplies I used:
Embossing folder – dots
Paper – Blue Fern – Blush
Martha Stewart Punches
Prima – frames that I sprayed with color bloom sprays – cotton candy
Buttons from Buttons Galore
From my stash – lace, white pearls, feathers are from Joanns, wooden bird,
Vellum Valentine’s Day from Quick Quotes
Reneabouquets – butterflies (just gorgeous) & Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand & Glass Microbeads – Gold
Tim Holtz – Remnant Rubs – Botanical & Apothecary and Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy”
I shaded around each tag with PowderPuff – Very Berry.

I sprayed the frame with Color Bloom – Cotton Candy to give a little pink affect. 
I placed glue around the inside of the frame and then 
used Reneabouquet glass microbeads – Gold and let it dry. Also used the
TH Remnant Rubs “LOVE”inside the frame. Added a feathers and a button.
 Here I added a wooden bird I colored with a brown marker and added 
gold stickles to the wings. I also added sentiments from the TH
Remnant Rubs and drew a heart. The white butterfly is from Reneabouquets.
I used a Prima frame and added some pink paint on the from and added some 
Reneabouquet Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand on top of the pink areas. 
 Again I added TH Remnant Rubs female silhouette. A little pink flower
I had in my stash.
 On the first tag I used Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy” 
and a Vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes. 
There is a heart shaped button and a little pink flower from my stash. 
2nd Tag – has some feathers and heart shaped  button from Buttons Galore. 

Well I hope you found some inspiration today. With Easter coming up I think this might be a great idea to use as well, don’t you think?

Thanks for joining me today and for stopping by. Please poke around our site to see some other wonderful creations my teamies made, you definitely will get inspired.

Have a great crafty day, 
Deborah
