When You Wish Upon a Star- Saturated Canary "Fairy Wishes"

   Good Morning. For my card today, I colored up "Fairy Wishes" by Saturated Canary.  Is she beautiful. I just love all of Krista's images!
       "Fairy Wishes" is colored with copic markers and the beautiful gray-blues are Shin Han Touch Twin markers (BG1, 3, 5, 7 & 9). Suzanne Dean shared these colors with me as they are one of the few color combinations not available in Copics.   The design papers are from Pion.  Flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts. Navy blue lace, rolled paper roses and roses with pearl ribbon are from Live and Love Crafts. 

      Of course, I played with the Frantage again... still working to get the hang of it.  Lot's of bling on this image!  That's all for me today. Have a great day and, as always, thank you for your kind comments!

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:




Tale of a Rose- Crafts and Me Rubbah Challenge

     Hi- Happy Wednesday.. this is the first of two posts I have for you today.  Since it is Wednesday, it is time for another great challenge at Crafts and Me Stamps... Teresa thought up a lovely challenge for the Rockin Rubbah team... "Peaches and Cream".
     For my card, I colored up a new stamp by Janna Prosvirina called "Tale of a Rose".  She is in stock along with other brand new beautiful stamps by her.  Check them out HERE.
     She is colored with Copic and Touch Twin markers.  I played with the new Stampendous "Frantage"- that is the white and glitter embossing enamel you see around the image and on the Tim Holtz metal label.  Tracy Payne has done a wonderful youtube tutorial HERE  on how to use this fun product. There are even several Pinterest boards featuring projects using it- just search "Frantage" to check them out!  Frantage comes in several colors and they are on the way to me as I write this. Can't wait to play with the other colors.  In addition to the Frantage, I also added a "pinch" of Frosted Crystal Antiquities Embossing Powder by Ranger.
     The design paper is from Pion. The edges of the cardstock and paper were distressed with Brushed Courduroy and Vintage Photo inks.  Roses, crinkled seam binding, lace and pearls are from Live and Love Crafts (closed this week for onsite maintenance) and Wild Orchid Crafts.  Sentiment from LOTV and pearls from my stash. In retrospect, I should have used smaller pearls, but these were such a perfect "peach" color that I could not resist using them. The wooden heart is from Prima. I painted it with Picket Fence and White pearl paint dabbers and added glitter all over this card!
     Please stop by the Crafts and Me challenge blog to see what the design team has created to inspire you.  We would love to see your "Peaches and Cream" creations! Have a great day and thank you for your kind comments.
     I will be entering this card in the following challenges:

Dream- Crafts and Me Challenge

   Good Morning...it's Wednesday and that means another great challenge from the Rockin Rubbah Girls at Crafts and Me Stamps.  Our theme this week is...
   Well, that is not a hard one for me.  I just love all things pearly, lacy and flowery!!!  For my card, I colored up a beautiful image by Ching-Chou Kuik called "Love is Gone".  She is colored with copic markers (E89, 87, 84 & 81 and Y26. 15, 11)and spica pens. 
        The design papers are from Pion - "Fairytale of Spring." available at Live and Love Crafts. Each design is available as a 12" paper with four coordinating 6" squares so that matching papers is so easy.  I promise you will never want to cut them up!  Here is a pic below for those of you who asked about these delicious papers...The cardstock is from Bazzill.
     The lovely frame is a Sizzix die, "Fancy Rectangles."  I just got this die and love it. It cuts beautifully and the large opening means I am not only able to frame these larger stamped images, but I am also not spending hours trying to dislodge the little pieces still stuck in the die. It comes in a see-through plastic snap case so you have the die and storage all in one. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the crinkled seam binding and "Romantique" lace is also from Live and Love Crafts. Now you can't see my gorgeous lace but it is beneath the image.. I guess I got carried away with flowers and embellies...but I know you do see my pearls.. and there are a few on this card! I stamped "dream" on a matching piece of dp and attached to my card.


   That's all for today.  Please stop by the Crafts and Me challenge blog and check out the gorgeous cards from the design team. We would love to see your "lace and pearls" creations!  Have a great day.  I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
