Our SCS challenge this week was to make a card with pieces that went over the edge. Great challenge! I used this adorable little girl from the Crafty Secrets Little Dolls Image and journal notes. The sentiment was cut from the bottom of the journal part of the page. Now to find an envie just a bit bigger so I can mail this! :)

Today is leftover day. I am trying to use up the "stuff" on my stamping desk. I made several different pieces of chipboard to show customers different techniques. On this card, I colored the chipboard with ink then embossed with clear embossing powder~ it is nice and shiny.

I made this for the CS challenge this week on SCS. I just love the journal books~ they have adorable pics on top with coordinating journal areas at the bottom. Check them out here. The challenge was to use orange~ perfect for bringing in the fall a bit early.

I am in love....with this new set by Crafty Secrets called Halloween Fun. It just has such an amazing variety of sweet halloween stamps~nothing too scarey. :) I made the circle card using my CM circle templates and "bound" the card with the gingham ribbon. I stamped the girl on shimmery CS with Brilliance ink. I bent the swirl from the halloween set to make the border. Thanks for looking. :)

I just fell in love with this set by My Sentiments Exactly called Little Birdie. It has lots of different sayings to put in the swirl. I did some faux stitching and added a little sparkly chipboard I made using ep and dazzlings diamonds glitter. The alphabet was $1 from Michaels for the word friend~ can't beat that. Thanks for stopping by! :)

Who doesn't love beads? I love these sticky letters by SU~ they are like sticky strip but letters. You fill in with larger beads then dump on micro beads to fill in the cracks. I made this for the Dirty Girls challenge from SCS by Jenn Balcer. She showed an inspiration picture and here is what I ended up with.
Stamps- SU print bkg, SU All about U
Ink- stazon black
Accessories- organdy flower- unknown (received as RAK), SU sticky strip letters, caledon satin ribbon, rhinestone brad

I just love this set called Bug's Life from Crafty Secrets. I love that each set contains main images, sentiments and fillers. I paper pieced the bug house and used my sewing machine for an "intentional" whimisical sewing pattern. I added bling to the mushroom and glittery chipboard. I think this fun side of vintage is my favorite~ now off to learn the correct color of bugs~ as for now I color them to match the dp~ how scientific is that?
