Meet Dahlia

Wow...2 posts in one day! That's a first for me! This week is going to be busy for me, and I have to get 2 entries in to The Greeting Farm's Feb Farm Fresh Challenge. More chances to win some farm bucks to spend on my favorite stamps!

Here's a little box I made for a gift set of 3" notes. Sometimes it's so much easier to write a bitty note to say "thank you" rather than having to fill up a big page. And yet it still means a lot, especially since it's hand made. I colored up Dahlia with my Prismacolor pencils on Kraft paper (love that effect, don't you?), fussy cut her out, and popped her up on the box covered with some scrap paper and twine. The sentiment is from OA - My Favorite Things. I'm showing her below with the box open so you can see the rosy envelopes that match with the box cover. So cute!

Here's an initial pic I took of the box closed, but then I realized I forgot to color her tights...Oops!

Thanks for popping over today!

Shadow Box

It's been awhile since I've tried my hand at a shadow box card - love 'em and all the layers of depth I can achieve with them, but they take me a looong time...that could have a teeny bit to do with me being a perfectionist... :)

Today I created my shadow box with Stella from The Greeting Farm, for the Feb Farm Fresh Challenge. I hand-lettered the sentiment and rolled the flowers. Here she is!

Here's a partial side view, so you can see more of the depth:

This was a lot of fun to make. My recipe is as follows:

Hair: E31, E34, E37
Skin: R04, R11, E00, E000, R01, R20
Clothes: RV63, RV66, RV69
Eyes: YG15
Papers are from my old SU! stash

Thanks for popping by, see you again soon!

Movie Night

I can totally relate to the image on the card I made for this week's Bellariffic Challenge on the Stamping Bella blog...only in my case, it's cats not chickies!! The challenge was to use a die. Love that speech bubble!

For this card, I used Melissa Loves Movies which comes with the images and sentiment you see here. I colored her up with my Copics, and used a stencil die and Antique Linen distress ink for the wallpaper. The die is a big speech bubble from My Favorite Things.

Kinda makes you want to curl up with a movie and popcorn, doesn't it?!

Thanks for popping by, see you next time!

Hugs for all

I'm really loving no-line coloring! Today I used Stamping Bella's Heidi Needs a Hug to complete a sketch challenge. Here's the sketch:

I took a few plain rectangles or circles for me! This stamp set was perfect for doctoring the sketch up a wee bit :)

Here's my completed card:

I popped Heidi up on some dimensional foam, and the lone chick on double-dimensional foam. I love the way this turned out! It feels happy.
