A real life Superhero!

Good Morning Crafty Friends!

I'm here to share a card I made for 
http://mywhimsicallittleworld.blogspot.ca/

I met Melissa Doherty in Simply B Stamps FB Group and she told us about a 3 year old lil' boy named Lucas. He's in St. Jude's Hospital in Texas and wanted home-made cards for his birthday. I immediately signed up! What is he into you ask? SUPERHEROES!

Paola is the creative genius from Paola's Papers  and My Whimsical Little World and she has the cutest
Superhero Digital Stamp. She is also revealing a Girl version today, so keep on the lookout for that Girly Hero!

So here's my card for Lucas and my first card as a DT Member for My Whimsical Little World

CS and DP are from Recollections and the star die cuts are from Sizzix and the Punch from Marvy. I also used my Circles Corner punch for some extra texture. Finished it with Stickers from my stash.

I colored this lil' hero with Prismacolor pencils. 

Here's the inside: (NOTE TO SELF: take a picture BEFORE writing in the card!! LOL)
Sentiment is from Unity Stamps and the mask and Emblem are die cuts from Michaels. Also used pierced cirlce from MFT's Die-namics Blueprints 3 set. 

Hope Lucas enjoys this card; and keeps smiling during his treatments. 

Please check out My Whimsical Little World on Facebook. Paola has weekly releases with fun challenges. 

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~ 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…
