Happy 2nd Blogiversary To Me!!

Two years in the books.  When I started this blog I wasn't sure I'd be dedicated enough to update it often.  I didn't know if I would want to keep crafting at such a high capacity in the future (Note to my past self: I do).  Some things have changed, but some things haven't, and I'm really happy to still be as passionate about the art and the shop and the blog as I was when I started two years ago.

I of course made a card to share for the event.

I chose this because I believe that I'll always find the passion for my art.  I hope that everyone has something they believe in as deeply.

It's Such A Sweet Sweet Fantasy Baby....

....when I close my eyes, you come and you take me....oops sorry got carried away singing there.  When I saw that the Hobby Cutz Challenge this week was Fantasy, I got instantly inspired, and not just by one miss Mariah Carey, either.  PLUS, Hobby Cutz is having a DT call right now!  I'm really excited--wish me luck!!

I loooove Tinkerbell.  I'm having issues with the background showing up despite taking about a hundred photos of it, but it's actually a shimmery blue ombre effect.

A close-up of Tink, the flowers I made and the die-cut frame.

I wanna thank Hobby Cutz Challenge for the opportunity to join their DT!  Thanks everyone for looking, have a great day!  Laters!

Wild Thing

Hi everyone!  As I sit here jamming to early 90s rock, I'm in a great, creative mood.  The card I'm sharing today was created with one of the newest digis from The Stamping Chef, I'm A Raver.  She can be purchased here through the shop link.  Isn't she fun??

I'm entering in these challenges:

Thanks so much for looking guys!  Have a great weekend.  Laters!

NEW Challenge With The Stamping Chef - Monochromatic OR No Coloring Allowed!!!!

Time to put those thinking caps on, crafters!!  I had to get really creative for the newest challenge at The Stamping Chef!  With digi stamps, you obviously think about COLORING!  But since the challenge was either Monochromatic or NO coloring, I wanted to jump in head first and try to NOT color my digi at all!  And I did it!!

I paper-pieced the dress and wings on my FAVORITE TSC image, Lost Fairy.  I colored and dyed the cardstock myself before gluing it on, plus I added glitter and Glaze pens for detail.  I put a rhinestone bindi and flower in her hair instead of coloring even her skin tone.  Yay me!  Plus since EVERTHING is mauvy pinks, it's monochromatic.

This card, although I love it, was a bit half-hearted for me to finish.  When I started this card I would look at the Fairy digi and smile, because she looks, to me anyway, like one of my favorite actresses from one of my favorite shows, Glee.  But you all probably know that on Saturday, one of Glee's stars died, Cory Monteith, and he was dating my aforementioned favorite actress, Lea Michele.  Doesn't the Lost Fairy look a bit like her?  So looking at it to finish the card broke my heart a little bit.

Don't forget to enter the challenge on the Stamping Chef Blog.  Thanks so much for looking.  Laters!!
