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,

Deborah xxxx


You are the Bee’s Knees

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share a card for Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month’s theme is CHA inspired. Since I had some of my projects in some of the booths at CHA and I had used digital images/vintage theme I chose to go that route with my card.
I started with a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock from the Kraft and Black Cardstock Paper Pad which I folded in half…3″x6″…to create a card base. I gathered up scraps of patterned cardstock that had a vintage, pinkish, valentinish feel. Which I cut, punched and adhered to the front of the card.

The girl image I found on Tammy Tutterow’s blog and best part it is free. I love the mischievous look on the little girl’s face. I sized the image down and fussy cut out. Next I printed out some butterfly wings that I purchased from Altered Pages and I fussy cut those out too. I adhered the wings to the back of the girl and then glued her to the card base. The wings I added a little Stickles to the wings and punched a crown out and glued to the little girl’s head. I also added flat back pearls to the crown.

I finished off the card with bits of lace and trim and a button. Also on the scalloped edge of the cardstock I added sequin and more flat back pearls. The sentiment I printed from the computer. The plan is to use this card in a Valentine’s Day card swap that I signed up for over on Instagram…fingers crossed she likes it. 🙂
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Celebration Seeds

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya and I would like to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery and this month’s theme is flowers. What I created isn’t a card but a little gift bag which you can put a card inside, gift card or something fun.
I started out with a 5″x7 1/2″ Large Paper Bag which I cut the “flap” off and punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch. Cut and adhered a 5″x5″ piece from the Take Our Breath Away Gypsy Moments Cardstock and ink the edges with green chalk ink. Then I adhered a Black Bookmark off center of the bag.

I cut the Best Wishes image from the Seed Packets on Ivory Cardstock. I love this collection. You can leave it as is or add paint/color to the image.

I used pop dots to raise the image off of the bag. I also used thread,l tulle, lace, pearl sprays, paper flowers and buttons to finish off the bag. I hope you like what I created and if you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:
Other Supplies:Pink and Lime Green Thread, Lace, Tulle, Buttons, Paper Flowers, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Pearl Sprays, Chalk Ink

Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for the month of October we had to either use pumpkin/jack o’lanterns or chocolate. 
This is what I came up with for my card. The base is a folded 6″x6″ piece of purple cardstock. I cut and layered patterned cardstock/scrapbook paper which I adhered to the base of the card.

The Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch image is cut from Echo Park’s Chillingsworth Manor  Poster  and Tickets sheet of cardstock. I distressed the edges and then inked. Then added pop dots to the back to give it some “height”. 

I cut three thin strips of orange tulle and made mini bows out of them. I adhered behind the image along with some black and white polka dot flowers and some mini lime green balls picks that I had bought at Christmas but never used. I also added sequins, dew drops and black lace.

I finished off the card with ric rac and buttons. I’m really pleased with how the card turned out and was very easy to make.

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

It’s Your Day

Hi everyone!!! It’s me Tonya and I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. The theme for this month is either black and white or penguins. Well, I do have some penguins stamps but decided to go the black and white route.  I used the backside of the Wind Flame with Thermal Icing , Black and White Glitter Border Swirl and Black Glitter Swirl on White cardstock from the Robin’s Nest to create the base and decorate the front of my  5″x8″ card along with some other scraps I had laying around. The corset diecut is from Gina’s Designs which I painted with white acrylic paint and once dry I added extra fine glitter to the top of it. Next I added gathered lace to make a skirt and last but not least I printed out “It’s Your Day” sentiment to the card.

Super easy card to make!!! It could be used either for a bridal shower or wedding card.

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!
