StampInsanity #7: Inspiration Pic

It’s Thursday again! Which can only mean one thing… It’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge! This week, we challenge you to work with this inspiration picture:

Pretty freakin’ cool right? I love the look of the makeup (on the model and off) and that jewelry is so fantastic! But those colors are really what inspired me…

Ok… so my blue is a little off… but you get the idea right??? Originally, I was going to focus on those bulls-eye jewelry; hence the use of my Nesties. But then I came across the other paper I used here… and it just came together in a totally different way! Which is totally fine by me, sometimes too much planning isn’t good right? Take a closer look at my girl Maddie:

I used my beloved colored pencils once again… and I love how she looks. Isn’t that a rockin’ dress???

Here you can see all of the dimension on the card. The extra swirl is cut out from the same Cuttlebug D’Vine Swirl pattern in the large orange rectangle.

Christmas in July with Imagine Crafts & Stencil Girl!

Hello! Have you heard? The Imagine AIRs have been hopping with Stencil Girl! If you have been here before, you know I loooove me some stencils, so this collaboration was very exciting for me! The teams are hopping for 3 consecutive Saturdays, and this is week 2. I have the entire list of hop links at the bottom of the post. Be sure you don't miss anyone! I decided to to create an extra large gift tag with my new stencils. Using red cardstock, I taped down the Journal Texture #8 Stencil  and inked it up with Golden Glitz Delicata ink . I promise you, this is the BEST gold ink you will ever use! The Journal stamp only has 2 diamonds on it (it's a 4x4" stencil), so after I inked up the first pair, I moved over the stencil, lined it up, and inked again. Next I wanted to do something textural with the Urban Insiders Star . So I took some evergreen cardstock, taped down the star, and slathered on some yummy Iridescent Green Creative Medium . After the medium dried, I ga

Two Huge Valentine’s Day Hops!

I am in not one, but two Valentine’s Day hops! Not bad for someone that doesn’t even like Valentine’s Day… The first is via Smeared & Smudged . It’s time for our monthly Member Blog Hop! The second was started by Taylor Usry . Please bear with me…this post is long because I am sharing 2 projects and the hop lists are huge. Let’s stat with Smeared & Smudged, shall we? My dear friend Alex and I collaborated on the theme for this month’s S&S Member Hop. Instead of making it a free-for –all, we decided to challenge our members a little…create something Valentine’s Day / love themed, but there is a catch.  Because we are Smeared and Smudged you can not use any of the following: No hearts No red or pink Nothing ‘cute’ unless you make it uncute of course :) Ok, so it’s not dark and scary…but it’s definitely not cute either. I used my colored pencils for the focal image.  It’s from Smeared Ink’s Smitten collection. The “pretty fly” is from the teir teen Style Sa
