Giraffe Baby Card - Rubbernecker Stamps


Hi and I hope you are well.
I received some new Rubbernecker stamps and thought this little giraffe would make a great baby card.  What a haul that was... I received nearly everything on this card in my package from the giraffe stamp, the star die, the background stamp and the letters.  I love getting new stuff, it really kicks the mojo into gear!

Color My Flowers - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and wow, where is the time going, here we are in October already!  
Today's project is a card I did awhile back and am just getting it blogged now, using the a few different dies and a stamp from Elizabeth Craft Designs. 
I spattered Tumbled Glass Distress ink onto the card base and before gluing the circle down, I sponged in more Tumbled glass so the circle area would be highlighted.  When finished colouring the flowers, I added some dots with a white gel pen.

Poinsettias - Elizabeth Craft Designs

Hi there and I hope all is well with you.  
Today's project is versatile and you can use these glittery poinsettas for so many things such as a gift tag, a placard for a holiday dinner table and when those are done, you can remove the tag portion, wrap a gold string around the leaves and use the flower as a tree ornament.   It's easy to create and there is a tutorial here over at the Elizabeth Craft Designs blog on how I made it.  Admittedly for this project, I had glitter everywhere... in my hair, on the table, on my clothes but  I love the Elizabeth Craft Designs glitter and using it with the double sided transparent tape makes any project do-able and so pretty.  I used clear acetate for the flowers & leaves and after the glitter was added, heated each piece slightly with my heat gun and bent it a little to give some shape.

Feathers - Rubbernecker Stamps

Hi there and I'm glad you popped by.
Today's card is a little different for me but I quite like the look of it.
I don't know why I have it or even when I bought it but I found a package of heat resistant acetate in my stash so thought I might give it a go.  The card is quick and easy, yet it has a stylish look.  I simply used Versamark to stamp the feather onto the acetate and then sprinkled the gold embossing powder onto it and heated.  When finished, I took my scissor and cut around the feather and glued it down.  I really like the intricate lines of the feather and they embossed beautifully and with the acetate, there was no bending of it - I'm sure plain acetate would work as well and you could then easily shape it so the one edge curved up and stayed in place instead of stacking several foam dots like I did.

Batty for You - All Dressed Up Challenge

Hi there!
A new challenge begins today at the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog and the theme is always Anything Goes with the only rule to enter being you use an All Dressed Up image.  If you don't have any, they can be can either be purchased at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop or by downloading one of several cute freebies offered on the blog.
For today's card, I've used the Batty For You digital stamp which I thought would be timely because Hallowe'en isn't too far away.  I printed off three different sizes of the bats and kept the sentiment part of the image separate.
I found the most lush paint I've ever used and it was a total mistake.  I went back to my local scrapbooking store to find some Hallowe'en colours of the Viva Inka Gold, saw the Violet and Rose colours and grabbed them without paying too much attention.  They were in the pile of Viva products, right?  I do that stuff all the time but this time, it worked out for the better... anyway, I got back home and was so annoyed when I opened it and it was paint, not paste.  I didn't want to go back to the shop so thought I'd give it a go and try to smoosh it onto paper.  This paint gives the most incredible look... I've taken a close up so you can see it, it has the prettiest shimmer ever!
You can find these silly bats over at the All Dressed Up Etsy Shop but I'll warn you, you won't be able to stop at just one!
Be sure to head on over to the All Dressed Up Challenge Blog where you can see all kinds of inspiration from the rest of the girls on the team.  Join us for some fun and wonderful creations at the Facebook Fan PageFacebook Challenge (there is a theme for this one) and there's also a Pinterest page to view some more gorgeousness.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week!
