Happy February! New DICC Challenge

Happy February! And, Happy Birthday to Desert Islands Crafters Challenge! We’ve been at it for a whole year now, and it’s been a lot of fun! In honor of DICC’s birthday, we decided to go with a birthday themed itinerary, created by our very own Leila.

1) Birthday
2) Balloons
3) Cake
4) Presents
5) Confetti
6) Party Hat
7) Birthday Sentiment
8) Candles
9) Cupcake
10) Bright Colors

As always, you need to use at least 3 items from  the itinerary. I used #’s 1, 2, 5, and 10. What’s more, is that I have a very special sneak peek for you! I get to share the newest version of Lola, from Simply B Stamps. She is from the new Birthday Teens collection, which we will officially start to preview on February 4th. I love every incarnation of Lola, but this one is for sure one of my favorites!!!

How joyful is she!? And adorable! I love her balloons, her sweet face, her plaid skirt. And coloring her was a ton of fun too!

I used watercolor markers for her, and a little chalk for the background. You can see that I embossed confetti by using a Fiskars texture plate, and I applied chalk to that as well.

My sweet sentiment, “a card to give you a little lift,” is from Create with TLC. They have beautiful sentiments and images, and many of them are free! I encourage you to check them out. It’s a wonderful blog.

So there you go. Happy Birthday to DICC! Please be sure to check out the rest of the creations made by the DT on the DICC Blog. And if you would, please visit the Bombshell Blog today for my February Hump Day Hop theme! Stop by here tomorrow, because there is going to be a Strange Skin Blog Hop! You won’t wanna miss this hop!!! We have a crazy cool group debuting some of their newest images. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

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
