Love lift us up...

Hello my crafty friends! It's time for a new challenge over at

Our theme this challenge is:


We have some amazing prizes from our sponsors:
Prize: $10 Gift Certificate
Prize: 5 Images
Prize: 3 Images
Prize: 3 Images

I used the super sweet HELIUM Digi from Paper Pretties. Just loved this guy...makes me giggle! LOL!

As soon as I saw him, I knew I had to make him "Floating" on air!! So I did a step card and used acetate on the center to give him the "airy" feeling. Loved how it turned out. CS & DP are from Recollections. Flowers and pearls are from Michael's. Satin pillow hearts are from the dollar store.

I colored him with SN Markers and paper pieced the balloon with DP from Recollections as well. I just lucked out it printed with "True Love" in the center. LOL!

I sure hope you join us this challenge and show us your love! 
Happy Craftin'!

TAGplorations~January Challenge

Woohoo! It's time for another TAGplorations Challenge!

This month's theme is WINTER and the optional twist is: TEXTURE PASTE
Here's my tag 

I started with the largest Manila Tags Die cut from MDF board and applied some pieces of cardboard. I then applied a layer of Gesso. Once dry, I applied Prima Platinum Crackle Texture Paste in random areas and let it air dry so I could get the crackle effect. 
I then used Lindy's Stamp Gang Sprays in browns and blues to add some color to my background. Then I added the Snowman I  created using different sized circles cut from scrap papers in my stash. I used Vintage Photo Distress Crayon on the edges for some highlights and dimension. I created his arms from the TH Bird Branch Die and tied the Sentiment (TH Christmas Word Bands) with twine. 

I finished with the Uppercase Alpha in the bottom as that's my wish...for Peace. 
And some Paper Smooches Stars Die cuts finished off my tag.

I sure hope you join us for this fun challenge and I…

STAMPlorations~ Give Thanks Blog Hop!

There's a big  happening over at STAMPlorations today!
We have a lot of designers with some wonderful GIVING THANKS makes and some amazing prizes! There's also a linky party for you to share your THANKFUL/GRATEFUL makes, so be sure to hop along and link up!
Today I have 2 tags using alcohol inks and the new Gratitude is the Blossom - Typografia Thankful and Something to be Thankful for - Typografia Thankful stamp sets. 

I created backgrounds using different warm colors of Alcohol Inks and cut them out using TAGplorations- Tags 1. I then stamped the Gratitude is the Blossom - Typografia Thankful and Something to be Thankful for - Typografia Thankful sentiments with Jet Black Archival ink and added some doodles using Metallic Sharpie pens. Some Skittles finished them off. 
Here's my Something to be Thankful For tag:
I also used flowers from the Large Dogwood stamp set and fussy cut them out for my Gratitude Tag

I hope you've enjoyed my hop on to Helen Gullett'…

STAMPlorations~ Sanna's Stencil Release Hop!

Woohoo! STAMPlorations is having a Hop showcasing the lovely Sanna Lippert's Stencil Designs!
Be sure to  check out all her amazing me, you'll LOVE THEM!! 
I used Trees 1 and Flowers 2 and made an art journal page:

I used my Mini Art Journal ..which was a kiddies MDF book. I applied DecoArt NEON acrylic paints  with a brayer. Once dry, I applied a little white gesso with the brayer to soften the background. I then created a Circle mask from acetate and used the same bright acrylic paints thru the FLOWERS 2 stencil . This mask allowed for me to create the "flower bubbles" on my page. 
I then used black acrylic paint thru the TREES 1 Stencil as I felt my page needed some black. I then used my Jane Davenport pen around my "bubbles" and doodled to highlight them.  I finished with my sentiment from Create Bold Sentiments set and the CUTplorations Uppercase Die set
I sure hope I've inspired you today and be sure to continue hoppin' as there ar…
