DICC, Plus Betty, Betty, & More Betty!

Hello! It’s going to be a busy week for me, as Simply B Stamps has a brand new (and adorable!) collection to share with you. That preview kicks off today, as well as the first new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge of 2012! Today, our very own Lelia Pierce has her itinerary up today.  As always, to play along, you need to use at least 3 items.

1)  Monochromatic

2)  Stitching

3)  Metal

4)  Embossing

5)  No Designer/Pattern Paper

6)  Handmade Flower

7)  Distressing

8)  Sentiment

9)  Up Cycle

10)  Chipboard

If you visited the SBS Blog yesterday, you may have seen the card I am about to share with you. We have a new challenge up, and you can get all of the deets there. But, I also wanted to use that card for today’s DICC, so I waited to post it here until today. I used #’s 2, 3, 4, 8, and 10.

I know, I know…it’s Winter. But I really love that little turkey. And this Betty (Fall Frolic Betty) is just so joyful! I needed to use this image.

I used watercolor markers and Copics (for the skin only) on this image. Seriously, I love that turkey!

So, perhaps Leila wanted us to use actual “metal”…but I did “metallic” instead. I rubbed a bronze metallic pigment on to the embossed area. You can see it best in this photo. My stitching is a rub on.

On to the first preview for the new Jude and the Rockers Playtime collection. I have been waiting and waiting for this set to come out, because it reminds me so much of my little ones! You’ll see why…

This is Spelling Blocks Oscar. He is done with Copics and watercolor markers too. Like Oscar, my son loves to build. Like seriously LOVES it. So I just had to make a layout with pics of him doing one of the things he does best.

Please remember that you can click on this (or any other) picture to see it bigger. Here’s my Phoenix in his room making a rather long wall. It’s cool at first glance. But then, when I really looked at it…I saw this crazy hole that I swear, defies the laws of physics!

Do you see the arrow? It’s pointing to the crazy hole. I don’t know how he did it. It still confuses me. But I’m no engineer. He' was really proud of that hole!

In addition to the adorable Oscar, I used a mess of Glimmer Mists, a little journaling, a bit of doodling, some paper scraps and 2 stickers. I think it’s a playful layout, which is just what this new collection is all about. Just wait until you see the rest of the set!

Now it’s time for you to visit the DICC Blog and the SBS Blog, to see even more cool creations from the DT’s. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Holiday Spirit: Aurora Wings Challenge #73

Seasons Greetings! Today I have a project for the latest Aurora Wings Challenge which is "Holiday Spirit." I decided to take the theme as a two-fer. Not only is this a holiday card, but the "spirits" are flowing too.

I used the Wine Sprite for my card, and gave her a Merlot look. I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. Here's a closeup.

I found a lovely paper in my stash from Wild Rose Studio from their Holly Lane collection. For my sentiment, I had some pretty red glitter cardstock from DCWV that I die cut with an old alphabet set from QuicKutz. I also added some sequins from a few different Sparkle Blends from Doodles Paper Playground. The sequins and the sentiment were all glued on with On Point Glue from Imagine.

On my card base, I inked the edges with Antique Linen Distress Ink, and then Peeled Paint Distress Ink. After I adhered my background to my base, I added Rock Candy Stickles to the edges. This gave just a touch of sparkle.

So &quo…
