Write Your Own Story...

Happy Sunday fellow bloggers...it's a hot one here in B.C. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!
 
Today, I have an uplifting card. Be the star of your own story...write your own story.

  
 
 
I chose the colors based on Dynamic Duo's Color Palette.
 
 
I used cardstock in warm pink and greens from American Crafts and DP from Hopscotch.
 
The theme of the card was based on The Lollipop Ladies Inspiring Pic:
 
I used the Stars EF from Cuttlebug and punched out stars with a star Marvy Punch. I used Stickles- Diamond in the centre of the embossed stars.
 
The Sentiment is from Gina K. Stamps- Great Sayings set.
 
 
I die cut the sentiment with Spellbinders Square Swatches.
 
Finished it off with pink ribbon and bling from my stash.
 
I'd like to enter the following 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…

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…
