Wedding Favors Galore

The wedding is 2 1/2 weeks away and I finally finished the favors. I used the A Muse shimmer paper and the bride & groom stamp. The bride's dress was done with Angel Wing Shimmerz and I used lipstick Spica pen for the flowers. The groom's tux was colored with a black Spica pen. The favor was finished with white sheer ribbon. Inside the favor are Jelly Belly beans. The bags have a cross with their name and date of the wedding. Now I can focus on my other projects. Enjoy!

Sweet Lilly - Softpencil Anniversary Blog Hop

Lilly is so adorable. She is making her debut on newly purchased Iron Orchid Designs paper. The front of the paper is a daisy design and the back large polka dots which is very complimentary. I used Copic markers E51, Y11, YG0000, YG00, and for the dress and bow Prismacolor 929. For a hint of bling on the dress and the center of the flower I used Angel Wing Shimmerz and Mello Yellow Blingz. To finish Lilly's look she has beautiful pearl for the center of her bow and ribbon and a single flower were added to finish the card.

Enjoy your day and visit Cat next!

Wednesday -Mothers Day Flower Series

I tried out my new Heartfelt Creations stamps with the matching Nestabilities. Today begins a series of three different designs. The first is a sunflower. I used yellow Bazill paper to create the flowers and inked them to create the warm color of the flowers. For the middle flower I added beads and to give dimension to the smaller ones I used a clear glitter pen. Lastly, I added ribbon to complete the look. I used a Rosie's stamp for the sentiment. Inside I added a Bible verse. Enjoy the sunny day!

A Muse 9th Birthday

Here is my card for the challenge. For the background I used the Dandelion and the Sprinkles from the Cupcake Set and enclosed with Flourish Frame. To give the card a real festive feel I chose the Happy birthday groovy stamp. I added a little pearl bling. I learned this technique from my friend Connie; to bring all the colors together on the card I used small scraps of ribbon. Let's celebrate!
