Good Morning Friends,

I am doing an extra Design team post today for Creative Inspirations Paint.

I painted in all the elements on the page. It was like coloring in a coloring book how fun is that and I love the shimmer of the paints

Here is a sneak peek of the card I made.  I think of summer when I see this card-- Where shall we go?














I hope you liked it. The girl image is from My creative time and the sail boat in the botttom left corner is from  My Creative Time  "you ae here"  stamp set-- stamped in Jennni Bowlin Brown sugar

This was in my mail today. I was pretty excited about it. I won two dies and one really cute stamp set (aren't they all).
Emma, from My Creative Time, packaged it really pretty to. This was perfect timing. My plan was to use Notebook doodles Cricut Imagine cartridge and  color in the shapes. Well this stitched restroom peeps die worked perfect.

CLICK HERE for the DL.ART THANKFUL THURSDAY #114  Christmas in July  CHALLENGE ends August 6



Hello again,

Another post!  A while back I got The Imagine cartridge Christmas wish. I had wanted this for so long and it was a really hard one to find. I am having fun using it today. Isn't that little critter from create a critter 2 - the cutest. Again I am using non traditional Christmas colors for this shaped Christmas card. For the shape I used Art Philosophy which I just got this past week. When this one came out I was really tempted to sign up for CTMH, but I had just purchased 3 other carts the week before.  Probably a good thing I did not.


The Noel was also from the CAC2. I used a total of 3 carts on this. Isn't that patterned paper the cutest?
All on top of Tim Holtz Kraft paper by Coredinations

Have a great day I may see you back here later or on your blog.

Inspired By: Anything Goes

Hi  Everyone, I hope you are inspired with today's inspiration 
challenge for you:
Even though the challenge is anything goes I am in the Christmas in July spirit. 


Here's some inspiration:



It is an ATC, with a tag tied on the top, I love how the paint shimmers.
I painted the evergreen  patterned paper to give it some shimmer and also to pull all the colors together.
I also painted my stamp and then stamped it I used the seasons and celebration stamp set from CTMH Art Philosophy set. I painted the joy stamp with the fuchsia and then stamped it. I love the free flowing design effect the paint gives. I added  fairy dust to the dots in the tree to give some contrast
At the very top, I used a Jeweled inspiration.  The thread I used to tie the tag on is is antique crochet thread that my Aunt left for me when she passed away. I will use this spool for tags until it is gone.


I JUST LOVE THESE PAINTS!!









I hope you have enjoyed my project and will play along with this week's challenge!!

Good Morning Friends,

I am doing an extra Design team post today for Creative Inspirations Paint.  I think I will be making jewelry from now on,(lol). Who would think this could be so easy? This is our newest product, resinesence. I made this in the morning went to the gym, came home and finished it in the afternoon. This new product is incredible.  It sets in about 30 minutes under UV light, mine took a bit longer because we had the usual coastal fog in the morning. Other than that I am thrilled with the product and I love how it came out.

Hi everyone,

It is another month for the PTI blog hop. never know if you will win , but it is always fun and I am always inspired by their photos and the designers on their site.






I used all the colors above and added the sentiment from PTI sketched shapes. The pure poppy images were actually leftovers from a flag I cut out  earlier in the month, that did not work for what I wanted, I was glad to get use these scraps. I punched holes of different sizes from the melon berry  and Hibiscus burst  and then added some viva pearls from a pen onto the simply chartreuse strip. I love  the CAS look and the font works perfect with the design elements.
I placed it all on top of an A2 Vanilla cream card stock.  I love how it came out!!

Hi Friends,

It was my last chance to get a circus project in for the Twinery challenge. I am so glad I have been cleaning up my art room and getting ready for the show. I can't believe how much stuff I forgot I had. That is too much anyway I was playing with all my twine and I just love these awesome colors and names butter cream mandarin, maraschino, and charcoal they all sound yummy except for the charcoal. Love my Twinery Twine.



I won these awesome "TheCrafts Meow" stamps from Stampin' Sisters in Christ, on one of their last challenges. I  always looked forward to Sunday to enter that one when I got home from church.

Hi Friends, 
This is a reminder that this is week two of the challenge, but I also wanted to share with you the other vase and flowers I made for the other side of my table for the show. I drove down to the beach yesterday after my gym workout and scoped out my spot for the show. What a gorgeous day, the ocean was turquoise underneath with a deep blue toward the top of the water. I have never seen these colors on our coast before, it looked more like a Hawaii beach and the weather was perfect to boot.  I realized I need to get outside more often, that might mean a bit less art room time, but this time of year I think it would be a good thing!!  


I made a total of 25 roses in the two vases,  I have everything for the show packed and ready to put in the car Friday.


DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge #113

THEME:  SUMMER


                                                                         
What do you think of, when you think summer? I think of hot bright colors, flowers, running, biking swimming, not to mention all kinds of water sports. Summer, is really a time of many out door activities.  I will be indoors for the show that is coming up. So I thought I would brighten up my display table with this hand made pail of hand made paper roses. What ever tickles your fancy and makes you think of summer is welcome in this challenge



Hard to believe these are really paper. I just love making them.



Both sides Have one pearl brad and one gem stone brad. I liked the look, plus it was the only ones I had that matched and were big enough. I may pop out tomorrow and get new brads, I think this is really pretty the way it is though--UPDATE~ I decided to leave them and I made the blue one similar



There are 9 flowers in this pail. I think I may do 3 more. I will most likely add some pale peach roses to it.

The papers I used are AC card stock
Graphics 45 Secret Garden
SVGCUTS.com
Mother's garden gifts




The challenge will be open until 11:55 PST  July 23, 2013.
3 entry limit



THE PRIZE:
6X6 PAPER PAD
BASIC GREY AMBROSIA


10 yards of red & white twine



and creative charms embellishments
