Prize #1: S4-324 Ribbon Banners

S4-324 Ribbon Banners

Prize#2: S5-021 Cherry Pickin’

S5-021-CHERRY-PICKIN'

Now for my project!  I made a card, using S5-021 Cherry Pickin’ to frame a water colored flower (Anna Wight’s Blossoms & Butterflies from Whipper Snapper Designs).   Each layer is dimensional, with the two frames both being raised up on dimensionals.  The sentiment (Anna Wight’s Blooming Expressions from Whipper Snapper Designs) was stamped and then die cut/embossed using S4-324 Ribbon Banners which was also raised on dimensionals.   The top frame was die cut/embossed twice.  Once with paper and then another time from cardboard.  The paper was then glued over the cardboard.

The stenciling and all the edges were inked with Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Some of the embossing was sanded down to add some texture and the seam binding was also dyed with Antique Linen.

Product Used:

Good morning!  Well, I finally did it  . . . I got all 12 tags completed.  I had such a wonderful time creating each and every tag.  I have to say that doing this project has completely rejuvenated me and I have new ideas flowing.  That’s a good thing!

Here’s T!m’s Smiley from millan.net Tag 12 and mine is below.

Tag12

The background was made with the Wrinkle Free Distress Technique using Broken China and Vintage Photo Distress Inks.  Gold Perfect Pearls mixed with water was then sprayed over the tag and dried.  I copied a page from one of my old Hymnals that was torn and halved already.  I completed the look by distressing the edges and sponging with Vintage Photo.  The flourish was stamped over the background and the music in gold acrylic paint.  Using a piece of the music paper, I stamped the sentiment “let there be Peace” and embossed it in gold.  A Memory Capsule was filled with gold beads and put in front of the sentiment.

The flower was made using my Faux Porcelain Technique using Cranberry Crisp paper and Grunge Paper.  I actually made the first flowers with Grunge Paper and they came out so dark (because I couldn’t decided on the color and kept playing) that I went with regular cover stock.  The leaves are made from Grunge Paper that was colored by misting with a Shabby Shutters/Forever Green Pearlized Distress Mist.

I hope you have a fabulous day, and thanks for joining me on the BAD Side for a little bit!

Happy Monday!  I hope everyone had a fabulous Thanksgiving and got to spend time enjoying family and friends . . . and doing what you wanted to do!  We traveled to northwest Indiana to visit my in-laws for Thanksgiving and returned home Friday afternoon late.  Then because Mallory was home and she always helps me decorate for Christmas, we started putting up the trees on Saturday.  Her favorite task is to set the Santa collection out.  Of course, this year it ended up in two places, since I can’t help but add a few new Santas every year.  Oh how I love my Santas!

It was a little bittersweet for me when we set up the Christmas tree.  I started collecting ornaments for each of the girls the year they were born.  I have also saved every little thing they ever made while in school.  Last year I boxed them up individually and marked their names on the outside of the box in preparation of them leaving home.  Little did I know then, that Katie would leave.  Sitting in the basement are her boxes of ornaments, a tree and numerous other decorations that I have decided to pass along to my oldest daughter.  I’m so excited for her that she will be decorating her first tree this year, even though I miss seeing all those handmade ornaments that I delicately hung on the tree every year!

Of course, all this decorating along with the weather we are having today (no snow yet), has put me in the holiday mood!  I couldn’t help but pull out Anna’s Snowman for Peace set today.  I guess it’s my way of hoping for a little bit of snow!

Snowman for Peace

I stamped out my scene, colored it with Copic Markers and then cut it out using Spellbinders Square Nestabilities.  Because I wanted to add a background, I left the image in the Square Nestability and used it as a mask for the outside edges.  I stamped the main images out on Eclipse Masking Tape, trimmed them out and masked the main images.  Once I had everything masked, I airbrushed the background with different shades of blue Copic Markers.  To finish off the main image, I added Ranger Glossy Accents to the snowman and Tulip White Puffy Paint for the snow, sprinkled it with glitter and let dry.  The ornament was also highlighted with Ranger Glossy Accents.

Good morning! Smiley from millan.net I’m still working on organizing, and promise that I’ll have pics for you when I’m done.  Even though it might be put away, things are still a bit untidy.  It’s amazing how rejuvenated I already feel.  You’ll see in a few days.

I did take a few minutes yesterday afternoon to finish up a card that I had already started.  I had to drop a few things last week to get ready for the Texas show, and this was one of them.

I just love these penguins . . . they are way too much fun!  I can’t decide if this one just fell, or had a little help.

Penguin Antics Face Plant

The image was colored with Copic Markers and then the snow was made with Tulip Puffy Paint with Polysparkle EP sprinkled over it while wet.  For the background, I embossed snowflakes in the same Polysparkle EP (which is hard to see in the picture).
I know black and white is not the typical holiday colors, but they just seemed to work here.

Good Monday morning!  Smiley from millan.net Hope everyone had a great weekend.  I got some much needed stamping time in . . . as the next few days will be filled with laundry, packing, etc., to get ready for my trip to Texas.  Of course, I’m gonna try a sneak in a little stamping time too!

Speaking of Texas, on Wednesday I’ll be flying to Dallas to spend a few days with Bev.  On Thursday, Bev and I (along with Sharon and hopefully Joan), will be driving down to San Antonio to work the Rubbernecker Booth at the San Antonio Rubber Stamp and Scrapbook Expo.  I hope some of you Texas girls come visit with us!  AND yes, I’m still looking for my

Speaking of Texas girls, my friend Anna Wight has a few new sets being released by Whipper Snapper Designs today!  When I saw the penguin set, Penguin Antics, I knew that was one I just had to have.  Here’s why:

Penquin Antics Bottoms Up!

Now it’s quite possible that this little fella had either not enough coffee with his Bailey’s or maybe too much nog with his Smiley from millan.net . . . Christmas Cheer . . . but somehow he has landed bottom up!  Okay, Smiley from millan.net along with me, but I just love the humor.
