Cupcake Challenge

Once in a great while, I get the opportunity to create a card for Taylor's Cupcake Challenge. I was cleaning out my studio and trying to get a little more organized and spotted these beautiful Graphic 45 papers. I knew that these papers were the ones I wanted to use for this week's challenge. I stamped the image with an older Stampin Up image then colored it in with a combination of Copic markers, glitter gel pen, pearl-ex powders and glitter. I think it really makes the image sparkle. I used one of Ideology's fragment tags for the butterfly image then glued a second butterfly to the top of the fragment for a little dimension. I love the colors and how the card came together.

Winter Dreams

What fun it is...to celebrate the winter season with a new project. This box is a spin-off of the wonderful boxes that Linda Albrecht does. I love the new papers from Basic Grey and the folk-art look to it. Using a styrofoam head and smashing it a bit, I covered it with gesso and made indentations for the eyes and mouth. The hat is a sock top from an orphan black sock I had. A little paint, a lot of styrofoam and some embellishments and the end result is this whimsical piece.

Oh What Fun...

Another quick post to show you my mini gift tags that I'll be teaching for my next class. I love the new Tonic punches that give a quick little punch to your projects. Lots of techniques from embossing to shrink plastic, this is another great way to play with papers and stamps. The other project is my first of twelve tags that Tim Holtz is showing on his blog. He is showing some great techniques and its a fun way to challenge yourself and see what you can do. Hope you enjoy the view.
