Hey Big Spender...

OHHHH... how much more could I love this Sugar Daddy set from Bombshell? I LOVED coloring it and embellishing it and just giving this guy his personality! It was really fun to make the money look like he was just throwing it all around...(my kinda guy...LOL) and holding his winning hand!

I used crystal effects on his eyes,nose and tongue to give them a realistic look. I added the rhinestone ribbon slide to compliment his flashy wardrobe and here he is... in all his glory! Thanks for popping in and have a great day!

Look at Me...Using a DIGI!!!

I DID... I USED A DIGI!!! They are not my forte... but I Love the stamps and the people at In Style Stamps. I made this card using the BUTTERFLY image... and its a digi! I cut a piece of designer paper to 8.5 x 11 and i put it in the printer and said a prayer. I got my file ready to print and VIOLA!!! Out it popped... THEY WAY I WANTED IT TO! So I then cut out the butterfly, added some helmar 3 d glue dots to the body and the antennea and popped the wings. I used crystal effects on some of the flowers and flitter on the others. I put a sparkley gem in the middle of some of the flowers and used a rub on for the sentiment... and check it, I got my water mark on there too! Yeah me! Thanks for popping in and be sure to check out all of the fun digi and rubber stamps at IN STYLE STAMPS

Another Amazing Sweet Pea Offering

This is a stamp that Sweet Pea Stamps are the details:
Elaine Cox's sheet 14 (plate 84)

I just adore these stamps and I love all of the unique artists that are offered at SWEET PEA STAMPS. Elaine Cox's designs have caught my eye because they are so very detailed and I LOVE that !I also love to detail them more after I have colored them in. For this image, I colored her face and hair with copic markers,and the water was done with water color crayons. Then I used glitter and gel pens to accent the water and her tail. I also colored over her tail with Shimmerz and I added Crystal Effects to the water for some extra shine. For the pearls in her hair, I used my viva decor pen. I used Nesties in the background for the pink lattice circles and here is my creation. I  used some cuttle bug strips to emboss the top and bottom to make it look like bubbles. Here is my creation and I hope that you love this! Thanks for popping in!

WoodWare Anything Goes ... Even Glitter Alligators?

I LOVE to do anything goes... I LOVE thinking outside the box and here is what I did. I stamped the alligator from JUNGLE PALS onto acetate with stazon ink in jet black. Then, on the same side that I stamped on, I filled in various areas of the gators with crystal effects and dumped glitter on it and repeated the process with different colors and glitters and here is what I came up with. I used pop dots to life the acetate alligator panel off the paper so the light would show through and I covered the dots with the leaves that I cut out. I added the leaves under the panel too and got out the stickles and jazzed them all up! This was really a fun technique and it was funny too because Milo, my 15 year old Jack Russell STILL has glitter on him... and so does my hubby...(but that can be our little secret!)
Thanks for popping in!

Paper Makeup's M4TW Challenge

Ok, so this time, the challenge was challenging for sure! It was to make a card with NO LAYERS!!! How is that even POSSIBLE, I thought? can be done. I used this super cute apple set and I alligned all of the apples onto a clear block.Then, I stamped them all at the same time onto my card. Then I added the sentiment seperately. I colored the apples with copic markers and then added crystal effects to make them look shiny and delicious! I used glitter pens for the green lines and added some bling in the corners. SOOOO... it can be done... ya just really gotta think. Please make sure to play along with this challenge and then upload your creation to the Paper Makeup blog so we can admire your hard work! Thanks for stoppin in! Have a wonderful weekend~!

Tall, Cool One... DRS Style!

I made this card a little bit ago and I wanted to share it with y'all... now that the weather is getting nicer!(LOL)
I stamped the beer mug image and I cut it out with my nesties. While it was still in the nestie, I added some sponging for a really cool effect. Then I colored the image with copic markers and added crystal effects to the mug. Before I did that, i painted the beer with SHIMMERZ so it would look all sparkly! Then I added the liquid applique for the foam. The dimension that stuff gives is FABBY! And watching it fluff as you heat it... DIVINE!!! I cut another piece of paper with my nesties and cuttlebugged it with the bubbles for the beer bubbles. I added some ribbon and ... THEN... on the inside... the most fun sentiment. It says "Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy!" and guess who said that??? Ben Franklin... That cracked me up! After I added some fun ribbon and mounted it on black paper... I called it a card and here it is! I hope that you enjoyed this one... on me!

PMS Monday Challenge... Sketch Challenge, That is!

I did this card for the sketch Challenge over at Paper Makeup stamps. I LOVE this monster... Dreck... or is he an alien? Anyway, here he is and I just love him! I used the sketch on the PMS blog to create this card. Please check it out and know that you can play along with any of our challenges! Just use the handy dandy Mr. Linky to link up your creation! Then, on Sunday before the new challenge is issued... we do a SUNDAY SHOWOFF and feature the cards that were linked up! Cool, huh?
I colored Dreck with copic markers and I used crystal effects for his eyeball... I did that before too... I think it looks so real that way!(LOL) Then I cut the 3 circles and inked them up and adhered them together. For the purple strip, I painted it with SHIMMERZ and then punched the lacy edge... monsters can have a soft side too!I tied the ribbon at the top and added the sentiment to the lower right side with a rub on... maybe that is how you DO say hello where Dreck is from. At least he is a polite monster (or is he an alien?)Please Check out the PMS blog and be sure to play along with the challenge! Thanks for stopping by!
