New Pin Up Digi Stamp

I got this Pin-up from Victoria Case when I got the other one. I decided to make a card with her. Although I am sure this is not the only time I will use her. LOL. My daughter says she wishes her butt would look like this Pin-ups but I told her, in the real world nobodies butt looks like that!!! That's why I added the wish charm!!!

Remember to join me starting October 1st for a month long Halloween showcase. See sidebar for more information!

Happy Creating!!!

For the inner Pin-up girl in all of us!

I fell in love with this Pin-up girl(she is a digi stamp) I found over on Victoria Case!!! Oh my goodness, she is not the everyday Pin-up that you would normally think of but she is perfect for the more curvy women of the world. I know everyone, no matter what body type you have, has an inner Pin-up and low and behold I have found mine. Love her!!!!! I got her with one thought in mind...using her on cards for my Hubby when he is gone on deployment next year. LOL

Vintage Beauty

So its that time of the week again. Time for Terra's weekly Tuesday Challenge. This is the third week that Terra has had this challenge on her blog smeared and smudged and so far I have been the only one participating, which is good for me, but I would like a little competition. Go on over and check it out. This weeks challenge was to use cardboard somewhere on your card. That's it. She offers some pretty cool prizes also, and most of them are items to use in future challenges, so you have a head start on that if you win.!!!

Journal for Gutter Girlz Challenge(prompt#29)

It's that time again. Time for the Gutter Girlz Challenge, which of course I look forward to every month. This month the Prompt is I'm not ur Bitch..Bitch, The song is U and Ur HAND by Pink, and the product/technique is Lipstick. When the challenge was issued i immediately thought about doing this journal for my daughter, and then the more I thought about it the cooler it got in my head. So I went for it. I found these journals at Michale's a few months ago in the clearance isle for 49cents so I picked up a few. My friend Terra gave this tutorial over on the Bombshell forum for making decorative paper with paint so I ran with that idea also. The stamp I used on the paper is from SU from their Just Jawing set. I thought about the song and remembered a part of it that I believe every parent would like for their daughter to have enough self confidence in themselves to be able to say to a boy when they venture out on their own,(of course according to my hubby my daughter has to be married before she can date! LOL), so I put those verses of the song on the inside cover for her to remember.

I think everyone at some point in their lives needs something or someone they can vent to. I also know that there will be times when you need to write everything down before you can talk about it, therefore the journal for my daughter. So here is the Journal. I would love to know what you think.

Chipboard Mini Book

This is a project I made with two purposes in mind. The first being a mini project issued for DT Members over at Scrapbooking and Crafting Friends ning group. We received a lovely Digi Stamp set from MyGrafico. Such a lovely set too. The second being a challenge issued by Terra over on Smeared and Smudged. Her Tuesday challenge was to use safety pins on your project. I have these "light bulb" shaped pins and thought they were a great way to Jewel up a crown. I made the crown with layers for a 3D effect on the front of my mini book. I'm not sure the pictures so that very well. I also used Metallic effect perfect pearls from Ranger products to give it that little something extra it needed.

Golden Eye

Happy Saturday everyone! Hope you are all enjoying this lovely weekend. There is a challenge over on the Bombshell group on PCP for movies. There are some awesome creations over there already, you should check them out. I thought long and hard about which movie I wanted to work with and while browsing one day I saw this eye and though James Bond Golden Eye! So I printed out the eye I wanted and decided that I didn't just want a printed out eye so I used this product called Omni Gel over the paper. I love the effect that Omni Gel has. I also used the sexy lady from the Butterfly Queen set from Bombshell Stamps. The "dress" on the butterfly was colored with SU watercolor pencils, then used Ranger Ink Perfect Pearls in gold on her. I love the shimmery shiny effect they leave.
Well the longer I looked at this card the more I wasn't happy with it so I am adding a 2nd pic with the new and improved card. You can never have enough gold!!!!

Hello everyone I hope you are all having as great of a day as I am. The weather is lovely, well for me anyway, so nice and cool and windy.... Love it! I wanted to share some exciting news with you all. The owner of the place where I go to maill all of my things that I send out, Goin' Postal, has kindly offered me a spot in her store to sell my cards!!!!!! I always leave my envelopes open when going in because whe likes to look at my creations. The last time I went in she asked if I would like to put up some cards to sell and of course I jumped right on that train!!! I made 8 to start, 4 halloween and 4 fall/thanksgiving. Hope you enjoy, now off to the pictures...

Because everyone LUSTs for Gold and Girls!

I made this card for a challenge issued over on Smeared and Smudged. I fell in love with this stamp as soon as I saw it so wanted to use it for something like this. The PP is some that I made using thick embossing powder and stamping in it. I then took perfect pearls and rubbed it on the top getting the "liquid gold" look. Love it. I also used the perfect pearls on the center of the flower and the game tiles so that they shimmered! Enjoy!

Retro Cowgirl Goodie Package

As I was sitting in my craft room the other day wondering what I wanted to work on, my son mentioned cowboy cookies. YUMMY. Anyway after we made some I though wouldn't it be cute to make a little goodie package to be able to send them to friends and family or give away to neighbors. So that got me thinking... they are cowboy cookies but we all know its the cowgirls that rockso what better way to show that than to use the Retro Cowgirl stamp set from Bombshell Stamps!!! LOVE IT. This is what I came up with.

Necklace for my Girl!!!

I recently started dabbling in Jewelry making. Here is a necklace I made yesterday for my daughter. Yes I know the materials I used are not the same but that is what I wanted. I wanted the key charm to stand out so it is silver while the rest of the necklace is muted. I love the way it turned out and I had to wrestle her to the ground to get it off of her just to take a picture so I am sure she loves it too!!! Hope you enjoy! Sorry about the picture quality, it is overcast today!

Dream a Little Dream

Happy Friday All,
As I was walking through the crafting store the other day I happened across this Mermaid charm in the jewelry section so I picked it up thinking I can do something with this...then I found the charms that spelled out dream and who doesn't dream, at one point in their life, of being a mermaid so this is what I came up with. The patterned paper was something that I had on hand, I never walk out of a store that sells patterned paper without some, its an obsession!!!! LOL Anyway here is my Dream card!
