A Life's Journey

Hello, Our challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday challenge has started and the theme for this week is Anything Goes with the twist of Anything Goes. Stop by and see what the girls have created, everyone did an awesome job with their card. The images I used are from make it crafty they are called sailing leaf and Notti. I merged the two images together. My papers are from my scraps box.  Burnished around the edges using Brilliance ink color Mediterranean blue and lavender.
I colored the background with pearlesent and shimmer chalks, I used one set was jewel tones and the other was shimmers. Made by pebblesinc. After I was done with the chalks I sprayed my art paper with blair fix #105 very low odor matte fixative to make sure I would have no smudging. Stickles glitter glue color firefly. Diamond glaze to give a water effect. Sprayed extra silver spray glitter from flora crafts. The sentiment is from The Angel Company.
The die cuts I used are spellbinders nestabilities labels 10.

 Add some glass colored leafs  on a string of green pearls. This was a fun card to make and the fantasy of the card even made it more fun.
Cherry Lynn designs exotic butterfly small.

 Memory box delicate vine. Punch was from punch a bunch called flower #2 for the mini flowers used yellow and lilac sparkle paper then added pearl pen ink color lilac.

These are the copic markers I used to color the images. Here is a close up of the images.
Thanks for taking the time to stop by. Hope you enjoyed my card.

Little bIt of Magic

The challenge at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday has started today. My card was so much fun to make. I love doing cards like this. The twist for this week is to add Lace, Ribbon or Twine to your card or project. Stop by and check out the other designer cards. Our sponsor for the month of February Is
 Make it Crafty
 The images I choose to use for my card are Sapphire Sitting Fairy image and Stairway to Heaven
image. My images are from Make it Crafty.
Here is a side view of what the Triple Easel card looks like. It is not hard to make. The paper I used for my background is from Stitchy Stamps it is one of their paper pack that they sell called Garden Fairies Meadow Paper. So I printed it out on my computer. I did cut it a little larger them the right size but I did not want to cute the tree down any more.
The Stairway I tried to make it look like water was running down so I used colors BG15, BG13, BG11, BG10. I add some White Liquid Appliqué and heated it so it would puff up a little. I also put some Diamond Glaze to give it some shine. For the Ivy on the gates the color I used G85, G82, G21. I added some stickles glitter glue star dust and yellow. I wanted something to make the gate a little stronger so I cut a small piece of Transparency and glued it to the back.
 Here is a little closer look.

  Now for Sapphire I used R85, R83, R81. Skin E50 E00. Belt and Trim Y15, Y13, Y11, Hair C9, C7, C5. Eyes E35, Wings BG10 and some Sticklers glitter glue Star dust. I add a strip for the front area for her to sit on because I made to just a little to big for the front panel and I do not remember what the name and who makes that strip :( sorry. I used some glitter brads and also some Stampendous sticklers for the middle of the flowers. To finish my card off I added a bow.
How to make a Triple Easel Card. I used Martha Stewart score it. Here are the measurements, I used tin paper but you would want to used a good card stock for your frame.
Cut 1- 5 1/2 x 11
Cut 3- 5 1/2 x 5 1/2
Score 5 1/2 and 2 3/4 Yellow large easel
Score 2 3/4 and 1 3/8 pink, purple small easel
The 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 you will set a side.

 I did them in colors so you will be able to see each layer.

 The yellow larger of the papers, CUT 5 1/2 by 11 now score it at 5 1/2 and score it at 2 3/4.

Now the pink paper.
  Measurements for the pink paper are score at 2 3/4 and score again at 1 3/8. Fold toward the inside of the card.

 This is how the yellow and pink look as far as size.
 Measurements for the purple are score 2 3/4 and score again at 1 3/8. Fold toward the inside of the card.

 Green paper is for the back of the card.
 I hope this helps with the different papers. It is just a matter of cutting your papers and scoring them at the right spot. This is how the placement of the papers will go.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Any questions let me know.
I like to enter these challenges

Dance yourself silly

Welcome to the Scrapy Land Challenge #36. The theme for this challenge is Tie One On, include a bow. (die or ribbon) plus use any brand of low profile or steel ruled die Scrapy Land sells. Scrapy Land has over 40 brands of dies.  You can see them all here. Please link your project back to this Scrapy Land Challenge Blog.  It would also be extremely helpful if you would list the brands of dies used in your project. The challenge closes on Sunday, Feb 28, giving the Designers time to choose the Winner and the Top Three.  The winner will receive a $15 gift certificate to the Scrapy Land store. Please limit the number of entries to five. The image is from Art Impression called Dotty unmounted golden oldies UMU2778.
The card I made is a Bow Card. You can get the template from Sandra's Scrap Shop. The link is . #91: Bow card template. You can find all kinds of different templates for different kinds of cards. I have seen this card made at different blogs but all I have seen is the front view, I hope what I show you will show you how easy this card is to make. After I cut out all the pattern pieces. Burnished all the edges with distress ink color brushed corduroy and peacock feathers. Them I sewed around the bow edges and thought that turned out pretty good. The sentiment on the outside is from The Angel Company.
The paper I used is from The Angel Company called The Sands of Time. Added white Tulle in between the bows. These are the dies cuts used for the card. I want to make another one with some fancy designer paper that looks like ribbon. This one took a little longer because it was the first one but the next one should be pretty fast.

Spellbinders Die-Lit Tropical Flourish

Cherry Lynn Design Southern charm Valance

Cherry Lynn Design Tropical Flourish,
Spellbinders Shapeabilities Flutters S2-010

Spellbinders Classic Diamond die
This is a top view looking down into the card. Added some turquoise and white ribbon.
Here you can see the Cherry Lynn die better. I did have to cut it down a little to get it to fit. 
 This is how thick the card looks when it is finished so it will have to be put in a larger box/bag. I would not mail it, give it to someone you love. 
Love that Butterfly.
 Here is how the bottom looks. The way Dotty is dancing I wanted to add some sparkle so on the Tulle I put some Stickles colors shamrock, sea glass, crushed pineapple, cool mint and raspberry tart.
 This is the inside of the card. The sentiment is from Hero Arts.
 These are the copic markers used to color the image.
 Here is a close up of the image. I paper pieced Dotty dress and panties.
 If you should stop by Sandra's shop and pick up the bow template and have any questions feel free to email me if you have any questions. Thanks so much for stopping by.

You are my Sunshine

Good morning everyone! Hope you have lots of sunshine. The sun is shining beautiful today her in Wisconsin. We have another challenge for you over at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday and for this week the twist is show some love. Our sponsor for the month of February is Make it Crafty and the image I choose to use is call Aleisha.
 Cut out a 5” circle with black card stock, cut out in white card stock the Cherry Lyn designs Doily English tea party die then cut the image out with spellbinders exquisite circles.  Adding some Pearl pen color yellow.
  The lace is from Wild Orchid crafts. The pearls I have had. I sponged around the exquisite circle die cut with brilliance sunflower yellow ink. My ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
The Orchid is from Cherry Lyn designs B280. I tried to add some color to the Orchid somewhat like my real ones I had in the yellows but it did not turn out quite the same.
For the inside used a EK success punch called Swiss cheese. Applied  some 1/2”  scor-tape behind the circles then applied some clear glitter so it would become sparkly. With the clear glitter it would pick up the color of the  paper behind it.
These are the copic markers I used to color the image. Here is a close up of the image.
I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by.
