Don’t Divorce…Bury!

That title got your attention huh? So I have had this totally awesome stamp called “Burying Evidence” from Paper Candy for quite a while now… but I never got around to using it. She’s just so cool…I need her to be used properly… for her to be given a place on a really rad card. Well, I think I did it… and now I want to do a whole series with her. What do you think???

Bella's Lullaby 018 Now that I think about it, this card could even be used for this week’s TTIC! The oh-so-pretty pink mixed with the super-gross spiders?! That would definitely be an “Unlikely Friendship!” Here’s a close up of my leading lady:

Bella's Lullaby 019 I colored her in with my Spectracolor pencils. The Bury is done with Martha Stewart stamps (I know, right?). Paper from Provo craft and Reminisce.

I am loving this card. And I absolutely need to do more with her. Maybe you can help! What other things having to death, or burying or digging could I do with her? Gene thought of “Gold-digger,” which I think is a great idea! But what else??? Get on those thinking caps and leave me a comment with a fab idea! (please?). Thanks!

I just have to mention, that you to EVERYONE who has been leaving me such awesome comments. You push me to try really hard so I can keep impressing you. Yesterday’s comments blew me away. You are all amazing. Thank you so much for supporting my obsession with crafts!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
