#1 Dad!

Good Morning Crafty friends!

 I am excited to share with you my first card as a DT for

http://meljensdesignsdt.blogspot.ca/search/label/challenges



For Challenge #214 the theme is
 DAD


For this challenge I used Number one Dad Stitched.







I printed out the image on different DP’s from DCWV and

paper pieced them on the base image. The base was cut with Large Curved Rectangles Die from Spellbinders.  I colored around the wording in blue SN Marker and added some Distress ink and Liquid Pearls in blue.  




I love the different DP colors\shapes so finished it off with buttons and twines in the upper corner.Base CS is from Recollections.


I used the same DP's in the inside with a sentiment from Dapper Dad's Day sentiments.



I hope you have a chance to join in the fun this week-Be sure to check out the amazing creations from my teamies and leave them some luv!



Don't forget the fabulous 50% off sale that 

Melissa is having through to July 4th.

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…

Some Skittles finished them off.

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 designs...trust 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…
