More fussy cutting goodness:

Enjoy the Little things

 Hey everyone!

Today I am sharing a card I created for 88 and Clear using Upon Grace Digital Stamps:


I used Tangy Peach Sugar Stock as my card base. I added layers of Sweet Cocoa and Rich Honey. I cut the circle from the Sweet Cocoa Sugar Stock using the Ring Layers Die. I colored the flowers from  Upon Grace with my Caliart Markers, fussy cut them out. I popped a few up along with the sentiment from Upon Grace. I finished it off with some spatters of Dazzling Pat:

Wild Child

 Hey there scrappy friends! 

Today I am sharing my take on cold case file #371 at CSI. I used papers from Echo Park So Happy, Simple Life and All About a Boy for the rainbow on this page of Austin:


I was inspired by the colors and rainbows along with the speech bubbles on the case file. I created a rainbow using scraps of patterned papers from Echo Park, then added machine stitching in matching thread to each.  I added some speech bubbles from Fancy Pants Be Different, which I stamped hearts and the date on. I also added a wood veneer sun from Creative Embellishments that I colored yellow with a Sharpie:


The monsters and arrows are diecuts from Fancy pants Be Different. I added some chipboard and stickers from that collection as well:


I added the word "time" using alphas from the Be Different collection. The "goes too fast" is a rub-on from Daisy D as is the "plays hard" in the above picture. I also added 3 Clouds from Creative Embellishments:


This layout was so fun to create and I love the outcome!
Hope you will play along with us this month as there are some wonderful prizes!
Thanks for stopping and have a great day!

Ice Cream & Popsicles

Hey there friends!

Stopping in to share a summer layout with you that I created for Creative Embellishments using the Icecream & Popsicles chipboard piece for my title:

I used Carta Bella Cool Summer from my stash for this page. I used acrylic paints on my title piece and blended the pink and peach together in the middle to create an ombre effect. I added a banner sticker and added some machine stitching:

I added acrylic paints to the cones from the Ice Cream Set. I also added a chipboard popsicle along with a sticker one:

I added in another Ice Cream Cone along with some sequins from Pink Paislee and hearts from Buttons Galore and More:

Summer is my favorite season and my favorite thing to scrap!

Enjoy...

 Hey everyone!

I am back to share a card I created for 88 and Clear using the More Summer Digital stamps:


I used Sour Pineapple Sugar Stock as my base and then added layers of Sour Watermelon and Sour Mist. I used Sour Mist Sugar Cube and the Layered Scallops Stamp on the Sour Mist Sugar Stock:


I stamped the trees using Tangy Apple Sugar Cube on Sour Lime Sugar Stock.
I stamped the tent using Black Taffy Sugar Cube on Sour Watermelon Sugar Stock. The trees and tent are from the Camp Out Stamp Set. I hand cut some small clouds and outlined them with a black marker. For my sentiment, I used one from the More Summer digi stamps.

Wanted

Hey there friends!
I am back to share a western layout with you using some fun chipboard pieces from Creative Embellishments. Back in 2011 we were in Estes Park, CO for a wedding and on the way home stopped in Colorado Springs. A bunch of us went to the Flying W Ranch and took in a chuckwagon dinner and western show. There was a small town to walk through there and I took these photos of Greg, Austin and Sierra in the jail and one of my son in front of the wanted sign:

   

Check out the look on my son's face. I love it! I used October Afternoon Sasparilla for this page. I added watercolor to my background and then added a patterned paper behind my photo and machine stitched it to my background paper creating a pocket to tuck in the tag with my journaling. All of the chipboard pieces I used are from the Cowboy Set. I added white gesso to the skull:

 

I left the wanted frame naked and added a border sticker around parts of it. I colored the sheriff's badge with a silver Nuvo Glitter Marker. I added a few word stickers:

   

 I added Lindy's mist to the gun and also added a gun sticker. I used ScraPerfect's Best Glue Ever to adhere the chipboard pieces to my page:

   

 I had a blast creating this page and it was fun going down memory lane! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Halloween Decor

Hey there everyone! I can't believe it's October 1st already!

It's time for a new challenge at Creative Embellishments

This month, I was inspired by the trees, purple and black in the photo and decided to create a Halloween home decor piece using one of the Large Tags as my base. I added Modge Podge to it and then patterned papers from Fancy Pants October 31st, Rusty Pickle (remember them?), My Mind's Eye Lost & Found and Creative Imaginations.   


I used acrylic paints to color the Creepy Trees and Happy Halloween. I added some sheer ribbon from my stash. I fussy cut the skulls from one of the papers:


I added stickers from Echo Park:


I used the tombstone, pumpkin, spiderweb and owl from Halloween Scene 2 and painted those with acrylic paints as well. I fussy cut the hat and placed it on the pumpkin:


Here is the inspiration photo and the challenge to go with it is to use stash:


I love how this turned out!
Hope you will play along with us this month as there is a gift certificate up for grabs!

Chuckwagon

Hey there! 
I am back to share another layout with you using some fun chippies from Creative Embellishments! These photos of my family were taken back in 2010 when we went to a chuck wagon dinner in Custer, SD:

   

 I saw the Chuckwagon chippie in the store and thought it was perfect for this page. I added white gesso to it. Then I added acrylic paints to the top and Tim Holtz Distress stain to the wagon part of it:

   

 I colored the cowboy boot from the Cowboy Set with the same Distress Stain and colored the spur with a Silver Nuvo Glitter Marker. I used October Afternoon Saparilla papers, diecuts and stickers:

 

The cowboy hat is from the Cowboy set and also colored with the same stain and added a few dots of the silver Nuvo Glitter Marker.  For my title I used alpha stickers from the Sasparilla collection. It feels so good to use my stash!

 

I hope I have inspired you to dig out some stash, add some chipboard and make it look new again! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

I added strips of one of the papers from the kit and machine stitched those. I added that cute bow and mason jar:


I used my circle punches and added lots of circles to my page. I also added some enamel dots:
