Spread A Smile Of Joy...

Spread A Smile Of Joy
 Today I'm hoping to inspire you with a CAS Christmas card that I made for our annual family Christmas Eve Dinner.  I used to make invitations and send them out to the whole family, but I haven't had the time in the past few years.  But this year I decided to make the time for it and I am so happy that I did.

I used the adorable CandiBean stamp 'Spread a Smile of Joy' along with the 'Christmas and Winter Sentiment' set.  Both are ON SALE now at amazing prices so get yours before they sell out!!!  
I chose to make a CAS card for two reasons...First, it has to go into an envelope and I wanted to it easily fit...and Second, they are not easy for me to make so I wanted a little bit of a personal challenge.  I am really happy with the result and I hope you like it to :-)
Here is a pic of all 10 invitations.  Yes, each one is hand colored! 

Thank you for joining us today!  Wishing you a spectacular holiday season!!!

Grown With Love - Journal Page

Welcome back to my blog!

It's been a while again since I've had a project to post.  This one took me quite a while to complete as I had only a few moments here and there to work on it.  But here it is!  I hope you enjoy it and find some inspiration in it :-)

I had this image in my mind of a country hill with a house in the background and a girl planting something in the foreground.  I looked through my stamps and settled on the LDRS CandiBean 'Grown with Love' and the background image of this awesome 'Greenhouse'.  I think they compliment each other very well :-)

Both stamps are available in the store now.  Just click on the links above!

 The background is painted mostly with gelatos, over a layer of gesso, which is coating a patterned tissue paper.  I'm hoping it looks a bit like a small hill in the countryside.

I first stamped 'Grown with Love' on the journal page and then on a separate sheet of Cryogen White card stock.  I colored her skin, hair and shoes with Copics, as well as the flower and pot.  I stamped and fussy cut her hat, dress and watering can from patterned papers.  I then cut out the image that was stamped on Cryogen, adhered it to the journal page, and paper pieced her hat, dress and watering can over top.  I ended up stamping a second image of the flower top onto Cryogen, coloring it with Copics, fussy cutting it, and adhering it a bit raised onto the journal page.

This pic shows the dimension of the image on the journal page.

This is a closeup of the 'Greenhouse'.  I embellished it a bit with some red and yellow flowers and a few trees in the background.

That's all I have for today.  Thank you so much for stopping by!

You are Magical...

Happy Friday Everyone!

I've got a fun canvas to show you.  I had this idea in my head of a little girl standing in the middle of an enchanted garden, so I started looking through my stamps to find the perfect little girl for this adventure.  

I chose 'It's a Celebration' from the LDRS Dollhouse collection.

I just LOVE the Dollhouse girls!  Their eyes are just way too awesome to describe.  These girls are quirky, fun and a bit moody...LOVE THEM!

'It's a Celebration' is colored with Copic markers.  I coordinated the colors with some Prima papers that I got in the classes that I took at CHA.  In fact, most of the flowers and sprays that I used are from there too.  Anyway, I roughly cut out the image so I could insert her right in to the enchanted garden.  

The sentiment is from the LDRS 'Enchanted Wishes' sentiment set.  I stamped it and then cut the words apart so I could arrange them separately.

Do you see the LDRS 'Dewdrop Circle' die cut in the upper right corner of the canvas???  The die cuts are so much fun to add to mixed media projects.  I layered two of them that were cut from thick cardstock and it gave the appearance of chipboard.

Here's a close up of the awesome 'It's a Celebration' image colored with Copics.  

Thanks for stopping by!  Be sure to jump on over to the LDRS store for these and other awesome stamps and dies!
