Believe Tag with UmWowStudio

Happy Wednesday crafty peeps!  I've got a project to share with you that I created for UmWowStudio. For my project today I decided to go out of my comfort zone.

I created a feminine inspirational tag featuring the relief of the "Believe" sentiment from our Christmas Speech Bubbles chipboard.

"Be You-nique and Believe"

Believe. One of my very good friends always says this to me. It's funny how this one little word can have such a profound and calming impact. When I saw this in the Christmas Speech Bubbles, I knew I wanted to use in as part of the inspirational message on the tag.

Both of my chipboard elements were colored with some Smooch in Lettuce and a touch of Frosted Acadia. To accent the delicate features of the Leaf Stems I added some crystals from Prima in a variety of styles. I love the way the chipboard and flair created their own embellishment cluster!

A Holiday Card with Cheery Lynn Designs

Greetings and happy Monday, it's my day to host the blog over at Cheery Lynn Designs.

I created a holiday card featuring the Rustic Birdhouse die for my post today. The background includes the Card Maker Scalloped Rectangle, then the Horizon Coved Rectangle Boutique Stacker.

I placed the Horizon Oval Boutique Stacker in a horizontal position, then took the doily that was cut from the center of our Dutch Scallop Square. This was cut in half and glued behind.  This layer was adhered with foam squares for dimension.

A bit of cheese cloth was adhered behind the Rustic Birdhouse, then Branches were added on the left in different colors and under my bird. I tied a bit of string and made a bow to finish it. A small part of a Francesca border was cut and adhered below the house. Two of the Steampunk Corners were added to anchor the base.

Be sure to keep visiting, hopping and commenting to enter to win one of TWO prize packages. Each day is packed full of goodness and we don't want you to miss a thing.

Dream a Little Dream and Live in full Color!

When I received my Susan K. Weckesser goodies, I knew exactly what photos I wanted to pair with it! We had a really stormy month of June and I captured some rainbows that I thought were the perfect mix with the collection.  The kids had loads of fun talking about the pot of gold at the end of this rainbow!

I used the UmWowStudio Star Confetti Mask and some pearlescent embossing paste that I heat set for a bit of background texture.  For the two Layered Clouds on the right,  I base coated them in Gesso, then sprinkled white embossing powder on them and heat set. A touch of Lindy's Magical's in Tiffany LouBlue was mixed with a touch more gesso to tint them.

The Layered Cloud on the left I used some Art Anthology Stone effects in Bone, then added white embossing powder, heat set and touched a bit more Magicals on it.

I love the way our products work together so beautifully!  Thank you to Susan K. Weckesser for the opportunity to work with your lovely products!!!

Quick Quotes July Club Q

Happy Tuesday to you!  It's my day to host the blog and share my project at the Quick Quotes blog today.

My project features pieces from the July Club Q along with a few items from my personal crafting treasures.

I started my page with a few layers, then stenciled the title at an angle using Glossy White Embossing Paste which was heat set to provide the texture. The texture is so much fun!

The July Club Q Kit contains these adorable summer die cut shapes, the sun, the umbrella and the Palm Tree in white card stock.  I added Lemonade PowderPuff Chalk Ink and a touch of Orange Slice on the Sun. The Umbrella was colored with Blue Lagoon.  I added a bit of Stickles to my Palm Tree and to the edge of the umbrella also.

The kit also contains the orange button and the orange ribbon, the perfect finishing touches!
