SISC #37: Luscious Lace, the Fabric of our Lives!

It’s Thursday! Which means it’s time for another StampInsanity Challenge!!! This week our challenge to you is to create a project using lace and/or fabric! The possibilities are endless! And, what's really cool is that BOTH Wards are playing along this week! Here is my offering to the challenge…

Lace-1

I had really hoped to find some cream colored lace in my Mom’s HUGE stash…but we couldn’t find any at the time. So I opted to layer 2 types of beautiful trim for this Holiday card.

Lace-2

This is one of the 2 fabulous new Holiday Princess Maddies. I love them both…but here is something so magical about this one. She’s called Renaissance Princess. Totally up my alley!!! I guess it’s the candle and her pretty cape. I am so pleased with the way her hair came out. Doesn’t it look like it’s glowing from the candle? Would you like to see the rest of this pretty new digi set?

Holiday Princess Maddie 2010

I plan on using this candle Maddie throughout the year, for sure!

Lace-3

I used 3 pretty papers, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink on the card. It’s just a sweet, pretty card that I look forward to sending to someone special…if I can part with it! Am I the only one that makes a ton of cards, and then hordes them for myself???

Now it’s time for you to visit the rest of the fantabulous Groovy Gurlz! Have an inspiring day!!!

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!
