Tricks or Treats?


Little Darlings Challenges

Happy Wednesday Everyone!!!  It is time for another Little Darlings Challenge and we've got a super fun theme for you this time...Fall or Halloween!!!  The DT had a great time with this challenge and you can see all of their inspirational artwork at the Little Darlings Challenge blog.  You can go from there to their individual blogs to get the details of their project.

Today is also the release of the new Little Darlings 'Halloween and Autumn' collection of stamps. We've been showing the sneak peeks for a week and the DT did a FANTASTIC job.  Today you can get your very own stamps and join in on the challenge fun.  We can't wait to see what you do with these stamps! 

Here's my project...

Tricks or Treats?

This awesome image is 'Tricks or Treats' and she was soooooo much fun to color!!!  She is my favorite image in this collection and a must have for your Halloween stamp collection.  I paired her with dp's from a BoBunny collection from last year.


I took the idea of this easel card box from someone else...but I'm not sure if I'm supposed to say who just yet.  I didn't have a template so I had to wing it.  The easel card measures 6" x 6".  The box measures 5.5" x 5.5".


The black and purple flowers on the card are from both Magnolia and WOC.  The purple/green flowers on the card and front of the box were handmade using some flower punches.  The black ribbon is from American Crafts.

 

This is the inside of the box.  You can fill it with trinkets, craft supplies, Halloween candy, etc.

Here is a closeup of the card front and the image.  I colored the image with Copic markers.  It really was a lot of fun to color...especially that big ol' hat.  Love it!

Well, that is it for me today.  Thank you so very much for stopping by.  Thank you also for your sweet comments that you always leave.  I really do enjoy reading them.  I do hope that you'll let me know that you were here today :-)

Ciao,

Angie

Hocus Pocus...


La La Land Crafts
- Inspiration Friday -

Welcome Everyone!  It's finally FRIDAY!!!  That means it's time for a little inspiration from the La La Land Crafts DT.  This week we're showing you different ways to use 'embossing' on your cards/projects.

In all honesty, I don't do a whole lot of embossing.  I have a bunch of embossing folders, SB dies that I could emboss with, and embossing powders (although I have no idea what I did with my heat gun!!!).  And still...I NEVER think about embossing!  Don't we all have things laying around our craft space that we just never get around to using?  Or even think about using?  I think we get into habits in our lives and in our crafting and we tend to do the same things over and over again.  So, I'm really happy that this challenge came along because it forced me to dig out my embossing folders.

Here's my card...

Hocus Pocus 

This little sweetie is Magician Luka from La La Land Crafts.  He arrived in my DT package and I just had to ink him up.  I was in the mood to make a Halloween card for a boy and he is just perfect!  I just love him all dressed up in his magician's costume!!!  My son has a magic set and every so often he likes to show us a magic trick before going to bed.  If he had a costume he'd be in absolute heaven!!!

The dp's and the sentiment are from Pink Paislee's 'Hocus Pocus' collection.  They were also in my DT package and I LOVE THEM!!!  Purple is one of my favorite Halloween colors.  You'll have to look closely at the orange layer to see my embossing.  I rubbed over it with Ranger black soot to show off the embossed pattern.  Since it's a 'boy' card, I wanted to keep the embellies to a minimum.  The corner pieces are from WOC and they started out silver...I colored them with a black Copic marker.  The gems and black web ribbon are from my stash. 



I colored the image with Copic markers.  Here are the details:

Copics:
skin - E0000, 000, 00, 01, 11, 13, R20, 30
hair - E41, 42, 43, 44, 50, Y21
star & hat band - Y11, 21, YR23
shirt - YG21, 23, 25
hat - N0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
bunny - E30, 31, 50, R20, 30
shorts - B32, 34, 37
boots - E30, 31, 33, 44, 50
shadows - W00, 1, 3, 5

Well, that's it for me today!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll leave a little note to let me know you were here :-)

Magnolia Mini World Binder...


Magnolia-licious DT Blog Hop
Magnolia Mini World Binder

Happy Monday Everyone!  Today we have a FANTABULOUS show for you!  Have you seen the new Magnolia Mini World Binders from Magnolia-licious?  They are sooooooooo awesome!!!  My mini's have been accumulating in one of my shallow craft drawers and it was getting to be very difficult to see what I had and to find what I wanted to use.  I couldn't wait to get my binder after Diana told me about it!  Now that I have it and it is all organized, it was well worth the wait :-)

So, since all of the Magnolia-licious DT girls have their binders (and we all love them), it was decided that we would show you what all you can do with them.  They aren't JUST for organizing ya know!!!  Why not make a craft project out it?  That's just what we did!

The challenge was to cover the Magnolia Mini World Binder using whatever materials we wanted, but 90% of the stamps had to be by Magnolia.  The DT has done a GORGEOUS job with this challenge!

As for the Hop, if you've come my way via Patti Jo, then you're on the right track!  If not, then you can catch the beginning at either the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog or you can go directly to Cheryl's blog.  Either way...ENJOY THE SHOW!



Mini Tilda's in a Giant Garden


I decided to, once again, go way back to my scrapbooking roots for this project.  I treated the front cover as if it were a scrapbook page.  The dp's are from BG's 'Urban Prairie' collection.  I've had these 12x12 papers for...like...EVER!  I don't often use 12x12 papers anymore.  These colors are soooooooo perfect for my style.  Since this project is for me and I'll be keeping it in my studio and referring to it often, I wanted to use papers that I absolutely LOVE to look at.  I think it's very important to surround yourself with things you love...even in your craftroom!  Well.....ESPECIALLY in your craft room!  How can you be creative if you're not inspired?  How can you be inspired if you're not surrounded by beautiful things?


I covered the side of the binder in a coordinating pattern.  The back, which I didn't photograph, has the same pattern paper as the front cover.  They were all mounted on black Bazzill cs and all edges were distressed.  I ran the front and back dp's through the sewing machine and added a little stitching around the border, but it doesn't show too well on camera.  In this pic you can see some of the dimension on the cover. 



In this pic you can see another view of the dimension on the cover.  You can also see a sneak peek of the inserts with all of the labels and stamps organized inside. 



Here's a better view of the first page of stamps and labels.  I have a lot of mini stamps and this part seemed like a daunting task at first.  I brought all of the materials from my studio to the kitchen nook and worked there for only a few hours.  This way I wasn't too far from my son while he was working with his new Lego Master Builder Academy (he's a huge Lego fan).  Once he's completed the academy, we'll be able to tell people that our 7 year old has his MBA!  Haha!  Anyway, I had sort of an assembly line going with the stamps and labels and the time flew by very quickly.  Now its done and I'll only need to add some here and there when the new releases come out.



I tried to reduce the overall frame of vision by drawing the eye into the center with this frame that was cut with my Go Kreate 'XXL Square Frames - Frilly #2' dies.  I was very careful when placing the dies on the dp because I wanted to capture a very specific area for the scene that I wanted to create.  I had it stuck in my head that I wanted to use a variety of mini Tilda's and position them so that they looked as if they were living in a giant garden.  I hope it looks like that to you too!  HaHa!

That gorgeous, actually bright pink, 3-D flower ribbon is from Webster's Pages 'Bloomer Deluxe Card' and it's available at Love To Stamp.  I LOVE these 3-D ribbons!  They add so much dimension to projects.  On this project, it created the foundation of the garden and gave the images a place to sit/stand.  I added a bunch of flowers from WOC, Petaloo, Kort & Godt, and KaiserCraft in 'Fairy Floss' and 'Sage'.  These paper blooms from KaiserCraft have turned out to be my new favorite flowers.  On a single card you get a variety of flower types in a close variation of the same color.  Because you get different flower types in a single package, you don't have to buy bunches and bunches of flowers to get a beautiful grouping.  They're extremely versatile and add a ton of texture to your projects.

On the left side of the scene, I added some pink chandelier glass by Magnolia.  The buttons, heart doily, and pearls are from my stash.  There are several Magnolia DooHickey Dies that were used throughout too:  Leaf & Swirl Die; Tilda Lace; Swirl Butterfly, and Doily Flower.  You can find the largest selection of DooHickey dies at Magnolia-licious.  Their customer service is fantastic and shipping is immediate.


This little cutie is #3012 Mini Tilda with Stuffed Animal.  She is currently available at Magnolia-licious.


Here she is as #363 Tilda and Her Bunny. She is also currently available at Magnolia-licious.



And finally, #275 Tilda with Lace Jeans. She is also currently available at Magnolia-licious.

All 3 Tilda's were colored with Copic markers, but I failed to keep track of the colors :-(

Well, that's all I have for today!  I hope you enjoyed your visit.  I know there were a lot of pictures, but it is a very detailed project.  Anyway, your next stop is the fabulous Sharon!  Have fun!

Ciao,

Angie

Marci with Snowman...


La La Land Crafts
Inspiration Friday

Hello Everybody!  Wow!  This week has BLOWN by!  There were hurdles every step of the way, but I got through them all.  I'm still having a bit of trouble in the pain department, but hopefully that will just disappear as abruptly as it started.  The doctor says everything is ok...so it must be...right?  Man do I hate getting old!  How is it I can wake up feeling worse than I did when I went to bed?  And I have a Sleep Number bed, which really is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept in!  This 'getting old' thing is really not for me.  I may have to go on a never ending search for that ol' fountain of youth.  Where to start?...where to start?

Anyway...........I've got another card for you for LLLC's Inspiration Friday!!!  This week we were asked to 'use a doily'.  Huh!  I can do that!!!  But I challenged myself to do something differently this time.  Here it is...........


Marci with Snowman

This little cutie is Marci with Snowman and she's available right now at La La Land Crafts.  I just love this image!  I paired her with some gorgeous new dp's from BG's 'Nordic' collection.  Cs is by Bazzill.  The doily was cut using a Dia-Namics die and a coordinating dp.  I cut it into 2 pieces so that I wouldn't be wasteful :-)  Heck, you only get a couple of each pattern in the 6x6 paper pads and I wasn't going to use more than I had to!

The beautiful red snowflake ribbon is from RRR.  It was a part of a 'ribbon club' package that I had gotten.  I love how it POPS on this card!  I think I bought that ribbon buckle at WOC.  I know I bought the silver corner piece there.  The little joy charm, it's holder and the glittery snowflake are from my stash (which basically means that there is nothing left to indicate where I got them).


The image was colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's.  Here are the details:

Copics:
skin - E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, R20, 22, 30
hair - E41, 42, 43, 50, Y21
carrot - YR04, 23, 65, E43

DI's: black soot, weathered wood, faded jeans, broken china, vintage photo, walnut stain, barn door

Well, that's it for me today!  I hope you all have a wonderful day and weekend.  Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit!

All For Me!

Hi Everyone!  I have another fun little project to show you today.  I'm actually combining two DT challenges this time, which I don't like to do.  But, I haven't been feeling well lately and something had to give.  So, my project today is for:

PaperPlay Challenges

The theme at PaperPlay Challenges is 'Punches and Dies'.  This was an easy one because I LOVE using my punches and dies on all of my projects.  Check out the DT projects for ideas for your own projects.  You can enter to win a great prize!  Can't wait to see what you come up with :-)

and

Little Darlings Challenges

The theme at Little Darlings Challenges is to make a project using 'red and brown'.  Hmmm...I wonder who chose that???  hehehe :-)  I sure hope you'll enter the challenge with a project of your own.  You can use whatever stamp(s) you like and the winner gets a $10 merchandise gift voucher to Love To Stamp.  If your project is the winner and you used a Little Darlings image, then prize is DOUBLED!!!  Be sure to checkout the DT projects for inspiration! 


All For Me!

This sweet little boy image is from the Little Darlings Christmas Collection and it's called 'All For Me!'  He is currently available for purchase at Love To Stamp, so head on over and get yours!  There are four Little Darlings Christmas stamps and they are all ADORABLE!!!



I colored the image with Copic markers, but didn't keep track of the colors...Sorry!  The dp's are from the BG 'Wassail' 6x6 paper pad.  I think it's from a couple of years ago, but it's still one of my faves.  I love rich browns, reds and greens and this paper pad is filled with them.  I didn't use any cs on this tag...only the dp's.  The image and it's scalloped background were cut using SB nestie dies.  The heart swirls were cut using my favorite Magnolia DooHickey die 'Heart Swirl'.  I think I've been using this die on every project that I've made recently!  You can get this die, and many other DooHickey dies, at Magnolia-licious...the best place to get all of your Magnolia products!


The gorgeous gentle lace that is tucked behind the image was found in one of my ribbon drawers.  It was just a bit of scrap that was left over from another project.  The ribbon is actually a gorgeous blood red velvet, although it doesn't show too well in the photo.  The flowers are from both WOC and Love To Stamp - Cranberry Paper Blooms from KaiserCraft.  I just LOVE these flower packs!  In each pack, you get a variety of flowers in different sizes and slightly different shades of the same color.  They're absolutely wonderful to combine with each other or with flowers from other manufacturers.  Lastly, the sentiment tag is from a SU kit that I've have forever.  I attached it with a bit of string tied around the velvet ribbon.

That's all I have for today!  I hope you'll come back tomorrow for a little something with a La La Land image.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Ciao,

Angie

Corner Bookmark...


Hi Everyone!
  I hope all is well with you!  I hosted my monthly card class this morning and we made a corner bookmark.  I just love making these!  They're kinda quick once you get your image colored and they're very showy. 


Here it is...I hope you like it :-)


Mini Tilda with Pony Tail


The star of this project is the sweet little #3021 Mini Tilda with Pony Tail and she's sitting in front of #509 Mini Bird Background.  Both images are currently available at Magnolia-licious in both mini and regular size.  I think they're both fairly popular images so you may want to head on over there right away to reserve yours.  Their customer service is fantastic so you may even have yours by the end of the week!




The image and its scalloped background were both cut using SB nesties.  The dp's are from the BG 'Sweet Threads' collection.  You can get the 'Sweet Threads' 6x6 paper pads at Love To Stamp for only $4.50/each right now!  The swirl was cut using my favorite Magnolia DooHickey Die - Heart Swirl, also available at Magnolia-licious.  I cut it into a couple of pieces and then attached them where I thought they looked best.  The ric-rac is from American Crafts and the cheesecloth is from my stash.  The bottom of the bookmark was cut using a MS punch.  I added a ton of star dust Stickles for some sparkle.




 This is how it looks on the corner of a book.

The images were colored using Copic markers.  Here are the details:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 30, 31, 41, 43, 44, 50
R20, 30, 81, 83, 85, 89
RV00
N0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9
Y11, 19, 21
G12, 20, 94
YG61
B0000, 00, 32, 34, 37
C1
W3

Well, that's all I have to show today.  I hope you had fun stopping by.  Have a wonderful day :-)

Halloween Treat Bag...


La La Land Crafts
Inspiration Friday

Hi Everyone!   I'm a little late in the day with my post.  Sorry!  This week at La La Land, we're making 'Anything but a card'.  That's not an easy task for me either.  I really enjoy making cards...I know exactly how much space I have and it's usually a square.  That's simple.  But when it's not a card, I struggle with what to put where.  So, I decided to make a Halloween Treat Bag and used a card front for the front of the bag.  Pure genius for someone who has a hard time thinking outside the box...or the square!  LOL!

Halloween Treat Bag


My DT kit included this ADORABLE 'Buccaneer Marci' (thanks Irina).  I just couldn't wait to work with her!  She's such a doll!  I paired her with dp's from Graphic 45.  The bag is just an oversized paper lunch bag that I had in the kitchen cabinet.  I aged it a bit with Vintage Photo DI and then simply rolled the top down.  The gold snaps and coin are from my old scrapbook stash.  The tag was cut using my Magnolia DooHickey 'Vintage Tag Die'.  I used my SU scallop punch for the trim around the image.  The black lace webbing is from RRR.



I colored this little cutie with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's.  Here are the details:
Copic Markers:
skin - E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, R20, 30
hair - NO, 1, 3, 5, 7
DI's: antique linen, walnut stain, black soot, vintage photo, weathered wood, shabby shutters, peeled paint
Well, that's all I have to show today.  Thanks so much for stopping by.  Please feel free to leave a little note to let me know that you were here!

Boxing Tilda...


The Official Magnolia Inspiration Challenge
(TOMIC)

Hi Everyone!  Welcome to the 14th challenge over at TOMIC!!!  This week we have a really, super cool theme for you...'make your own background paper'!  My goal was to spend $0.00 on this project and use only that which I already had in my studio.  This was a challenge I tell ya!  Whenever I'm faced with the unknown, I go to the craft store for inspiration and end up spending money.  This time, I searched my studio for inspiration.  And I found it in my spray misters!

You can catch all of the details of the challenge over at TOMIC.  You can see all of the spectacular DT creations and find out how you can enter to win a fantastic Magnolia prize :-)  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Here's my take on the challenge...


Boxing Tilda
When I saw this little cutie pie, I knew she was going to be the first that I would ink up.  I look at #220 Boxing Tilda and I'm reminded of all that I've fought for over the years and all that I've been through to get to where I am now.  It hasn't all been pretty, but I wouldn't change any of it.  I'm a firm believer in our experiences shaping us, the good and the bad.  I like who I am now and I love my family and my life...just the way it is.  You get nowhere in life if you don't fight for what you want.  That's what this image symbolizes for me.

Anyway, back to the challenge at hand...yes, I made these papers!  There is a close-up below.


I thought of this Boxing Tilda as a winner...a gold medalist, and wanted to use gold and black to show her off.  So, I first took my watercolor paper and sprayed it with water.  Then I diluted some Spiced Marmalade - Ranger DI with water and sprayed it on the paper, followed by black Maya Mist.  Once it dried I gave it a coat of a silver shimmer Maya Mist and then more spiced marmalade to brighten the yellow.  While it dried, I treated some cheesecloth similarly.  When everything was dry, I cut them to size and adhered the cheesecloth to the paper with Aleene's Decoupage.  I took another piece of the paper and stamped a SU 'Victorian Tapestry' stamp in black. 

Oh yeah!  That corner piece was silver until I took my black Copic marker to it!  Love my Copics!!!

The image is colored with a combo of Copic markers and watercolor with Ranger DI's.  Here are the details: 

Copics:  EOOO, 00, 01, 11, 13, N0, 1, 3, 5, 7, 9

DI's:  black soot, spiced marmalade, scattered straw, vintage photo, pumice stone

The ruffled black ribbon is from Really Reasonable Ribbon.  The flowers are from both Magnolia and Kort & Godt.  There are more details below...


The spiky little flowers are from Kort & Godt.  I saw them on Hanna's blog a short while back and asked her about them.  I love them so much that I bought 4 packs!  I gave them a treatment similar to what Hanna had done, but in colors to match my card.  I used the Maya Mists and DI's that I used on the papers and then I topped them with a bit of yellow Stickles for extra sparkle.  You should see them IRL.  They're really gorgeous.

Well, that's it for me today.  Thank you so very much for stopping by!  I hope you'll take a moment to leave a little comment to let me know that you were here :-)

Pilot Luka...


La-La Land Crafts
Inspiration Friday

TGIF Everyone!  It's Inspiration Friday over at La-La Land Crafts!!!  Why am I involved???  Because I'm one lucky girl!  Let me tell you a little story...

At CHA in Rosemont in July, I had the absolute pleasure of meeting Irina Blount, the founder of La-La Land Crafts.  She had mentioned that she was going to ask me to join the DT, but then I announced my own rubber stamp line, so she didn't think that I would be interested.  Here's the thing...I may have my own rubber stamp line, but that doesn't mean that I don't enjoy working with other stamp lines.  And that's exactly what I told her!  So, here I am!  I'll be here every week for a couple of months, and then I'll be part-time after that.  I'm really excited about working with these images because they're just ADORABLE!

So, this week we were asked to inspire you with 'Stitching - Faux or Real'.  That's an easy one for me since I use my sewing maching on most of my cards.  I decided to ink up Pilot Luka since Irina 'gifted' him to me at CHA after I told her how much I love him :-)  Thanks Irina!  This was my very first time working with a La-La Land image and it was an absolute pleasure. 

Here's my card.  I hope you like it.


Pilot Luka
Isn't he just the cutest!  I just love that cardboard airplane.  That's something that my son would really enjoy.  So......I hope you can see my stitching.  It doesn't always show too well on camera.  I machine stitched all of the dp layers.  The dp's, btw, are from BG's 'Oliver' collection.  This is one of my fave boy collections of paper.  I originally purchased two 6x6 pads and I'm trying to make them last as long as possible.  Anyway, cs is by SU.  The Stampendous sentiment was stamped on a tag that I cut with one of the Magnolia DooHickey 'Dream Tag' dies.  Then I ripped it up a bit, crinkled it, and gave it additional age by rubbing the edge with some DI (I think I used both Walnut Stain and Vintage Photo by Ranger).  I also gave some cheesecloth some age with the same method, but I finished it off by spritzing it with water and rubbing it between my hands to take away the edges of ink pads.

I grabbed buttons from my stash and laced them with some natural string.  The gears are chipboard pieces from MIC.  I painted them with a silver paint pen and then rubbed them with a bit of DI for some age.  The image is painted entirely with watercolor with DI's.  Here are the color details:

Ranger DI's:  tea dye, tattered rose, antique linen, vintage photo, walnut stain, scattered straw, weathered wood, tumbled glass, shabby shutters, peeled paint, black soot, pumice stone

Well, that is it for me today!  I absolutely enjoyed making my first La-La Land project and I can't wait to get started on the next one.  You'll see it here next Friday.  Until then I'll look forward to showing you my other creations.

Thank you so very much for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed your visit and will take a moment to leave a little note letting me know that you were here.

Fill Your Life With Sunshine And Your Heart With Love...


Magnolia-licious DT
Back To School/Fall Colors

Hi Everyone!  Today the Magnolia-licious DT is bringing a super fun challenge theme to you.  Sharon got to choose the theme and she has asked for 'Back To School' or 'Fall Colors'.  You can get all of the challenge details on the Magnolia-licious Highlites Challenge Blog.  Hop on over there and check out the rest of the DT projects.  You're sure to be filled with inspiration to get you started on your own project for the challenge.  I can't wait to see what you come up with!!!

Now for my project...I was short on time, so it was a quick one.


Fill Your Life With Sunshine
And Your Heart With Love


Today I have a very simple bookmark/tag to show you.  I didn't have a lot of time, so a bookmark/tag was a great choice.  And, it fits the 'Back To School' theme perfectly.  I already had the base of the tag sitting on my craft desk.  I actually cut it out quite a while ago when I got the Magnolia DooHickey 'Old Swedish Lace' die from Magnolia-licious.  I just never got around to using it!

So, I picked out dp's from BoBunny's 'Vicki B' 6x6 paper pad, which is currently on sale at Love To Stamp.  Then I looked through my stamps from Magnolia's 'Winner Takes All' collection and I just had to use this sweet little #378 'Chess Tilda'.  I JUST LOVE HER GLASSES!!!  I don't ever remember seeing a Tilda with glasses and I think she is just the sweetest thing!  I have her sitting on #557 Soccer Bench.  The entire 'Winner Takes All' collection is available at Magnolia-licious.  You can also get the entire collection in Mini form!!!  Magnolia-licious has the lowest prices and best customer service.  It's the only place that I shop for my Magnolia's.

What else is on this tag?  I practically shredded some cheesecloth and scrunched it up behind the image.  I grabbed some orange string from my stash, wrapped it around a few times, and then split the ends.  I topped the knot with a heart button that I found in my button drawer.  The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I stamped it on some kraft paper cut with my Magnolia DooHickey 'Dream Tag' die.  The flowers and gems were left over from a Magnolia DT kit that I got many months back.  And finally, all edges were given a bit of age with some Ranger DI Walnut Stain.



I colored this little cutie with Copic markers.  Here are the color details:

E000, 00, 01, 11, 13, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 50
R20, 30, 81, 83, 85
RV00
W3, 5
N0, 1, 3
G0000, 12, 21, 24

That's all I have for today!  Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you'll leave a little note to let me know you were here :-)

Ciao,

Angie
