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,

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.

Celebrate Big!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya. I’m here to share a quick card I created. I cut a 4″x5 1/2″ base from white cardstock. Used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I had laying around, stamped Celebrate Big on a scrap of white cardstock and inked all edges of before adhering to the top of the card. The diecut I received in a swap over a year ago is from Spellbinders but I’m not sure which set it is from??? 
The last thing I added was some sequins and dew drops to the banner and a tiny flower which sequin and dew drop to the corner of the celebrate sign.

This is a very easy peasy card that you can knock out in only a short amount of time. It can be used for a birthday or retirement celebration.

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