Princess Worthy

13 Jul
Following our theme on the Cheery Lynn Challenge Blog I have made this mostly SILVER card for you to see today.
The theme for this week on the challenge blog is
I took the ONE FREE WISH die and instead of leaving the moon shaped area opened, I backed it with lots of mixed pink printed papers.
The background papers are cut with the Scalloped Rectangle Stackers.
The very base silver rectangle is embossed with Black Eyed Susans.
I then took the Small Lace Butterfly and cut it in silver, cut it in half and placed it on the fairies existing wings to make the fairy extra fancy.
I using some embossing powder and a stamp to stamp the word to stamp the word PRINCESS and embellished the phrase with some Pretty Petals.
Overall, I think it is a different look from the silver and gold card you usually see, since this word work for a little girl.  I love the way it turned out.
I really like how the silver works with the black and pink.

Patriotic Summer Decor

13 Jun
Few things conjure up thoughts and memories of summer then 4th of July, don’t you agree?
I love 4th of July festive colors and indoor/outdoor decor but don’t have much of it.
I created this little plaque to start my own collection of 4th of July decor.
I started with a plain piece of wood and covered it with some paper from Authentique Paper’s Genuine line.
I then added to the background using the hearts from the stamp set called Gratitude and embossed them with Metallic Platinum Sparkle.
All the butterflies are from the wonderfully fun set called Build a Butterfly.
Each butterfly and coordinating smaller butterflies are embossed in the following 3 powders:
I love the way this turned out…what do you think?
Do you like to make things for the holidays?
What have you got planned for the summer?
I just hope to get through the day without melting!!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post.

Wednesday Wowzer

30 May
It has been a whirlwind of a week for me and things have calmed slightly enough for me to create for today’s post.
Today I am using one of my favorite {ippity} sets called:
I made this card to go along with the challenge over on the
I call this card a 4 square card.
By no means did I make the card up, but the directions I had from a well published book were so lousy,
I had yo recreate the card by sheer luck.
It gathers and closes and opens like a box lid.  Here is what it looks like on the inside opened up.
You can put what ever kind of sentiment or note you want to on the inside.
On the front you have 4 mini panels to decorate.
You can use it as a large panel or break it down into 4 small ones like I have.
What do you think?
Isn’t this a cute card and pattern?  And those flower stamps??  Get OUT!!  They are the best!!
Gotta love {ippity}!
I also want to point out the delectable goodies from these other companies I am using with this project.
All embossing powders are by Wow Embossing Powders.  Love the glitter ones especially!!
All paper is from Momenta. Kaleidascope
Square die and floral embossing plate by Cheery Lynn Designs.

Gel A Tins Stamps – Elefuntastic Card

12 Apr
Hello everyone..
I am here with a cute card today.  I am using Mojo Monday’s Sketch #236
Here is the sketch.
I turned the sketch and used it like this:
I am using the set called:
Here is my version of the sketch from above.
It think this is such a sweet set. There are so many possibilities since there are so many stamps.
I took one of the largest elephants and embossed it with a glitter embossing powder.  It created a nice effect for the background.
I am using all MOMENTA paper products.
All of these wild prints are from a paper pack called:
I also used some ABC stickers from a Momenta 12 x 12 Super Paper Pad.  If you don’t have a phrase that matches your stamps, make one up!  That’s what I always do!
I hope you have enjoyed my sketch tweak today!  Do you use sketches?  I am new to using them but I am hooked!
What sketch sites you do like?
I would love to hear what you have to say.

Wow Embossing TEAM POST – The GLITTER GIRLS!!

7 Apr

With my fun job over at WOW EMBOSSING POWDERS…we all have teams that we are on.

My team is called THE GLITTER GIRLS and today is out team post to WOW you.

For this layout, I used stamps from the two sets called, Is it a bird? and Call Me.

 I also used three different powders: Earthtone Olive, Earthtone Blueberry and Primary Bark.

These colors matched perfectly with Authentique Papers I used.  Since I took these pictures right before I headed up to the Authentique Paper offices, it is kind of nostalgic that I used their papers.

 I used the large stamp from CALL ME to add to the overall background of my base papers and for the papers I mounted my pictures with.

 For my journaling card I used one of the trees from the IS IT A BIRD? set.

 Also for the journaling card I used my embossing pad to adhere the embossing powder to the edge.

I hope you liked this layout!  I was so shocked at the shear innocence and beauty I caught in this picture of my daughter with the eleven-foot marble Christus statue.
The original was sculpted by the Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen.  You can read more about the statues history here.
I do have to share another of the pictures I took that day.  I could have used this one also, but the layout would have had a completely different feel.
Here is the picture I am talking about.
What do you think here thoughts are in the above picture??
Anyhow, I love the picture above just as much, again is shows the pure magic and innocence of a child.
Now, I would love for you to head on over to the WOW EMBOSSING POWDER BLOG and see what the other glitter girls have made.
They are all so talented, I promise you won’t be disappointed.
Have a great weekend all you lovely people:)
Ta ta for now!

“All DOLLED UP!” with Cheery Lynn Dies and WOW Embossing Powders

6 Apr
Today I am using my Cheery Lynn Dies along with some fabulous stamps and embossing powders from Wow Embossing Powders by the lovely Suzy West.
I cam across this adorable bookmark on Etsy:
I always look at things and think..ooh, I could do that even though I do not have the exact supplies the original was made out of.  With all my Cheery Lynn Designs dies, I knew I would be able to make my own version of this Japanese Kokeshi doll.  I also knew I wanted to use all of my WOW EMBOSSING GLITTERS and WOW STAMPS to accentuate the patterned papers I was going to use for the doll.
Here is my version…
My doll is much bigger than the bookmark and I have turned it into a plaque rather than a bookmark.
For the doll and clothing I used Scalloped Circle Stackers and Scalloped Oval Stackers.
I enhanced the dies and patterned paper with the Wow Embossing Powders and Stamps. You can see the sparly patterns on the dress and the background and I used one of the WOW STAMPS from the “CALL ME” for the doll’s hair.
The flower and lace embellishments are made with the dies called:  Queen Anne’s Lace, Buttons1 and the MediumMiniature Roses.
The final touch was applying the sweet sentiment attached to an individual Pennant.
I just love how this cute little doll turned out and I hope you do also.
