I started with Only Orange cs as the base. I layered with Brilliant Blue cs and again with Only Orange cs. I stamped small shells onto the orange cs with pumpkin pie ink. I layered a strip of bright colored dp with the brilliant blue cs, cut crooked on one side of both papers. I stamped the fish bowl with black stazon on GP white cs, cut out the bowl and layered with the brilliant blue cs. I used the distressing tool around the fishbowl. I stamped the fish with black stazon, colored with BIC It Markers and SU markers, cut out 2 fish and used 3D dots. I stamped the seaweed with garden green ink, pumpkin pie ink for the the small shell and brilliant blue for the big shell. I stamped the sand with creamy caramel. I also used a sponge with bliss blue ink to make it look like water is in the fish bowl. I added mini rhinestones for the bubbles. I then decided to use my copic marker around some of the images. I added Diamond Dust to the shells and sand. The fish bowl is raised using 3D squares. I used a medium oval punch on brilliant blue cs, then used a small oval punch on pumpkin pic cs and a small oval scallop punch. I stamped the sentiment with black stazon. I added an octopus button next the layered ovals. I also added a mint green fish clip and tied a ribbon. I hope this is not to busy.
I made this card at 3:30 in the morning.

I needed to make a card using a mermaid for the owner's daughter because she just adores mermaids.
I started with barely banana cs as the base for a tall card. I layered with bazzill greenish cs along with DCWV Nursery glitter dp. I used a ticket corner punch on the corners and added mini gold self stick beads. I also used a piece of green sticky mesh ribbon across the seams of the dp. The image is stamped with black stazon. I colored the mermaid with my primascolor pencils, blending stumps and mineral spirits. I used stickles for the hair and the fin and used a 2 way glue pen for the body and the leaves, then sprinkled diamond dust on it. I added felt flowers, prima flowers and big rhinestone brads for the centers of the flowers. They are raised with 3D dots. The mermaid is layered with the same cs, used the ticket corner punch on the barely banana cs and it's raised with 3D squares. I used a rectangle punch on the green bazzill cs and a small rectangle punch on GP white cs and hand wrote the sentiment with a black sharpie.
I wanted to make a scene card, just didn't have the time even though I knew when her birthday was 5 months ago. Of course, I waited 'til the last minute to do it.
Accessories:ticket corner punch, stickles, diamond dust, 2way glue, 3D dots and squares, sticky mesh, rectangle punches, black sharpie, felt flowers, primascolor pencils, blending stumps, mineral spirits, rhinestone brads, mini self stick brads
Paper:Barely banana, green bazzill cs, GP white cs, DCWV Nursery DP
This was a last minute gift idea for my daughter's kindergarten teacher. I made this last night to give her today at graduation.
I cut the dp to size of the mat that came with the Dollar Tree frame, glue the dp to the mat. I cut a piece of DCWV lime textured cs into 2 pieces and adhered with 2 side tape.
I had these pre-made tags, so I flipped them over and stamped the letters with red stazon using my Headline Alphabet set. I randomly put self stick rhinestones on to cover the holes of the tags. I stamped the heart, hand wrote with a blue sharpie "Mrs", cut out and put a 3D dot and attached to the top. I drew a black line for the string so it looks like the girl is holding it. I stamped the kids with black stazon onto GP white cs and colored with colored pencils. I added prima flowers and brads for the centers and used 3D dots to attach to the frame.
I had fun making this frame especially being this is my 1st one. I think I'll make another one, maybe with a shorter last name.

I needed to make a birthday card for my dad's 80th birthday, he used to play all the time, but now he teaches young kids how to golf so I thought I would make another golf card for him. I also made the same card for my DH's grandfather who will be 85yrs old.
I started with purple bazzill cs as the base. I used tangerine cs and used the SU Mat Stack for the piercing on top and the bottom. I layered with DCWV dp and again with purple bazzill cs. I stamped the monkey with black stazon on GP white cs, used a large circle punch. I used one of my daughter's bracelets to trace onto purple bazzill cs, then cut out with scissors. I colored him with BIC It Markers and outlined with a Cool Gray Copic Marker. The image is raised with a 3D square. I also stamped the sentiment with black stazon onto GP white cs, then used a medium circle punch. I also used a larger circle punch with the purple bazzill cs. It is also raised with a 3D square. I also decided to use liquid applique for the golf ball.

My oldest sister bought these wolf panels about 2yrs ago, asked me if I could make something with them. I finally got around to doing it....I'm going to surprise her by sending this to her without letting her know. All fabrics are made with 100% cotton. I figured I had the extra time because I was on vacation and it took about 16hrs total. See what I can do when the kids are at daycare?

This was an order from a vendor of mine. He wanted something with footballs, but the only thing I liked and found had a mixture of sports on the fabric. I'm hoping it would work. I used all 100% cotton fabrics and the design is Trip Around The World, by Eleanor Burns. I've been making a lot of these because they are so easy.
