Twilight Blog Hop! Plus a New DICC!

Greetings fellow Twi-hards! Greetings! I have TWO projects today! First, I have a new Twilight project to share, and then a new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge card.

Tonight is the night! It is the release for Twilight: Breaking Dawn Part 2! I cannot believe that the last movie is finally being released. Will you be at a premiere? I am going to a marathon, though unfortunately  I won't be able to see all of the movies. I'll only be watching the last 3. But it will be loads of fun, none the less.

I decided that since this was the last movie, I needed to do one last Twilight hop. One more hurrah before it was all over. So, I asked which of my fellow Twi-friends wanted to hop along with me. Happily, there were 6 gals that wanted to join me. So there are 7 awesome stops in this Blog Hop. And we all made some fabulous, Twilight inspired projects! I am the first stop on the hop, so if you are just starting to hop, you are in the right place! Here's what I came up with.

Originally, I wasn't planning on making a card. But I came across this image that I had colored a while ago (from the now defunct Artful INKables), and it just kinda called out to me. Plus, I had just purchased the ribbon, and I needed to use it.

The "Fanpire" was also from Artful INKables, and the banner is from Bombshell Stamps (Banner Sayings...a bit cut up!) It's hard to tell but I popped up part of the banner.
Did you know that Twilight was the reason I started blogging? It's true! So I owe these books a whole lot. I have forged a lot of friendships because of this series, and I am forever grateful. I love all of the ladies that are hopping with me today. And I am so happy that our friendships have remained, even after the hype of Twilight had died down. Now, you are going to be WOWED during the rest of this hop! Wait until you see all of the awesome projects my dear friends have made! Here is the entire hop list.

And now it's time for a brand new Desert Islands Crafters Challenge. This time, we are sponsored by Stitchy Bear. Our itinerary was created by our newest DT Member, Scatty Jan. As always, you need to use at least 3 things that are on the list.

Scatty Jan's Itinerary
1. Christmas
2. Green/Red (main colors)
3. Shaped Cards
4. Twine
5. Buttons
6. Sparkle
7. Kraft Paper
8.Stitching - real/faux
9. Pearls
10. Flowers

This image is called Endless Love from Delicious Doodles. I have always wanted a dragon...not as a pet, but as a companion. I recently read a book to my kidlings called Loveabye Dragon and it was exactly what I always dreamed of... I really need to buy this book. But I digress...

Seriously...isn't this image beautiful? I used numbers 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7, 9, and 10 from the itinerary. And I colored the image with my colored pencils. And just a wee bit of chalk on the edge.

I hope you like my creations today! Please be sure to not only visit all of the Hoppers in the Twilight Blog Hop, but also the rest of the DICC DT. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a fang-tastic day!

OOOh, that marathon sounds like so much fun! Lovin' your "Fanpire" card. Can't wait to see the film but so sad it's over. The DIC card is scruptious, too.

Have to say, I'm not a Twilight fan but my daughter is. I recognized the card straight off though. The dragon card really, really appeals and I love the way you colored that dragon.

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.

Arnold Grummer and Stampendous Collaboration Part 1

Hello! This is an exciting post for me because I am part of a 2 week "Earth Day" blog hop between Stampendous and Arnold Grummer. If you have visited my blog before, you know how much I already love Stampendous. But Arnold Grummer was new to me. They make paper making supplies. This is something I have never done before. And truthfully, I was never interested in doing. I thought it was so much work to make one sheet of paper, it would take all day, etc. But, when I was asked if I wanted to be a part of this hop, I thought about it and decided that I love trying new crafts, so I should give it a shot. And guess what? I had a blast! My daughter (who is 10) and I decided to tackle this project together, and we came up with 4 beautiful sheets of paper in just over an hour.
 I think that once we play with the process a little more, and organize the flow of our work space, we could probably make the sheets a little faster, but I was really happy with what we accomplished in a pret…
