Another Week of Beautiful Weather

Look what was fluttering around in my garden the other day. How beautiful is this?Lst week. The challenge for Pile It On was to use at least 3 flowers. The purple color is for OCC,I missed because I didn't get this in by yesterday. I'll get this weeks finished and posted in time. You can check out OCC at http://www.ourcreativecorner6.blogspot.com/. The other challenge that I have for this card is the Mojo Monday for last week. Julie has great layouts every weekhttp://mojomonday.blogspot.com/. The image I used for this is a digital image from Soft Pencil Designs. Love their stuff. You need to check them out.

Recently Bo Bunny had a Design Team audition an I decided to give it a try. I hate to have to say tat I was not one of the lucky 8 that they picked. I'll try again next year though because I do love theyre papers and embellies a lot. Like love them. Anyway here are the three pieces that I submitted. I think they turned out really great. I can't wait to finish up the purse accordian album but summer is far from over around here. I used the Ppsicle line and Calypso line for this. The purse is one that I have had forever and I took the handle off and made some paper beads and added wood beads to make a new one.


Inside the purse. I made it so the note shapes lift up and you can put photos underneath.




The front and the inside again. A little closer up.





This was the layout I did. I just love these papers. The Calypso Line is perfect for summer layouts. I did machine stitching around the border and did a lot of hand cutting. One of my favorite things to do.




KayLynn was so happy when she realized that the life jacket would really hold her up.




I like the way all the flowers turned out on this layout. I embossed these from the back to shape them and added faux stitching with gel pens and then added rhinestones and liquid pearls and buttons. The butterflies are Heide Swap and I added color with alcohol inks.






I love the way this flower turned out. I dry embossed it from the back to make it stand out and then added some stickels and liquid pearls and a rhinestone.




I cut a mask for the top of the cupcake and then pounced the darker pink on to make the frosting dimensional and then I dotted it with liquid pearls.





Last week I posted this cute card I did for Pile It On http://pileitonchallenge.blogspot.com/ and I couldn't remember the name of the Digital Stamp Co. that I bought the image from. I Found it.


It is called Pink Petticoat http://www.pinkpetticoat.co.uk/index.php and they have wonderful Digital Stamps. Please go check them out.






Have a great week everyone. I plan to.

Love all your projects, especially the Soft Pencil card (of course I am biased!). Colored so nicely and love all the flowers! Thanks for playing with us at Pile It On!

Wow! Bo Bunny's loss. When you aren't picked, it has nothing to say about talent - I'd take you in a Ne York minute.

I saw your link at the Wendy Vecchi group and love to check out everyone's stuff. I'm SO glad I stopped by.

Thanks for sharing your ART!
