Flowers I Made

I had fun making these supper great crafts. While blogging I found some talented ladies making these. Check them out at the link below. One of the flowers I didn't save the link so I can't give her the credit. I'm sorry I don't remember the crafter's name and site.

These are some paper and acetate flowers. The 2 flowers on the top are made from light weight brown paper bag. The products used for this are Adirondack color wash terra cotta, glossy accent and the center is a clear pebble this is a link to the video that I CASED (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqVkcKgxls4) The flowers to the left are made of paper and acetate. I punched out 5 petals from and oval punch. I inked one with color box ink, sprayed memories mist-mango lemonade then I stamped manuscript background stamp in black ink, and the top middle was embossed with my cuttlebug and then I brushed on perfect pearls and vintage photo on the edges. The last flowers are made of acetate, alcohol inks, versamark and black and gold ep.(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h8JupOwM-5w) In all these flowers I used brads to hold them together. Some were embossed, alcohol inked and sanded. Thanks for looking, if you like leave me a comment.

Color Challenge

This is a color challenge for She-She on Memories Always Forever -MAF. She challenge us to use the colors- purple, orange, black and green. I don't usually do Halloween but tried this and liked the way it turned out. The caption on the transparency is 'BOO TO YOU'. The skull is a Tim Holtz grunge board inked with acrylic paint with glossy accent over it. The flower was one I cased from Velma. It is made out of light paper bag smooched up and sprayed with gold shimmering mist and place on top of a frame, added buttons and ribbon. Oh the transparency is embossed with black ep.

A "Yard Sale" Haul

What you see here is the haul I got from a fellow craft person. She was downsizing and I got to be a part of her parting moments. Well let me tell you what I got. In the first picture standing up is a chipboard colored calender set, several file folder packet by Rustic Pickle, a brand new grommet tool kit, 4 CD cases of unmounted stamp sets (dress, ribbon & rick rack, labels, My Sentiment exactly letters) a set of unmounted leaves, Stampin up! Mat Pack, Christmas ball stamp set, small paper bags, a sizzix cutter, a container of form letters, so sponge dauber (12 piece) I had a wonderful time looking through all the craft items she had. They were very organized and she was so much fun. She has even been to my Church on several occasions and we talked much longer than I shopped but I enjoyed it a lot. Thanks to my "Friend in Crime" I was able to to get some craft goodies, some of which I have wanted for a while and I feel in love with last night.
