Green: Coloring with It & Feeling It

Ever have one of those weeks? Those weeks that can be written off a s a complete bust? That's how my week has been. I have the flu. And it sucks. I was so ahead with what I needed to do for my projects, and now I am miserably behind. And I still feel terrible. Thankfully, I had my project for this week's Dilly Beans challenge all set to go well before I got kicked in the ass with this horrid sickness. Allow me to share with you....."Green," our challenge for the week.

This is Nutmeg. And I think she's awesome. I actually had some extra moments, and my hands were feeling pretty good, so I broke out my beloved colored pencils. It's been forever since I've worked with them.

I am totally digging her hair. Oh. And I would like to point out, then when you visit the Dilly Beans Challenge Blog today, you will see the card I blogged about last week. Like a dummy, I switched what I posted....both cards worked for both challenges. And I inadvertently switched them. I can't even blame that on the flu! Wanna see the other card? Visit THIS post. 

Would you like to play along? Perhaps win some fabulous Dilly Beans images of your own? Then please visit the Challenge Blog. And please leave some love for the rest of the DT. They made some fabulous green creations this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!

Deco Art and Andy Skinner Blog Hop Finale

Hello! It's time for the finale of the DecoArt and Stampendous blog hop. Have you enjoyed yourself this week? I bet you've got some new techniques that you want to try. I know I do! I am super stoked about my project for today. And it solves a dilemma that we've had in my kids' room for a while.

What you see above is 2 pieces of PVC. And some fab DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics! So, what am I doing with PVC, you ask? Well, my mom bought my son a light saber(Darth Vader's) for Christmas, and he wanted to display it, but we weren't really sure where in his room, and how. I wanted something cooler than hooks, and we thought it would be neat to have the light saber vertical, instead of horizontal. Plus, there was a fab spot for it if it hung in that direction. So, my husband came up with the PVC pip idea, and I altered the pieces.



The end cap holds the base, and the small piece of pipe holds up near the end. And the 2 pieces are spaced out enough so that it's easy…

Winged Heart Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Collaboration

Hello! It is he final day for the Stampendous and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L collaboration. Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L is such a wonderful company with lots of great products. They generously supply the Stampendous Design team with 3D adhesive foam squares and other kits so we can pop up the elements on our cards and bring our projects to life. On my other card for this collaboration, I used the foiling kit (called the 3D Foam Creative Embellishment Kit) and I decided I wanted to use it again today.

I really enjoyed foiling the "merry" on my other card, so I wanted to do that technique again. But I added a bit of a twist this time. I took the heart from the new Wings Die Set and die cut a piece of foam from the Embellishment Kit. I only ran it through my Big Shot machine once, so that the pieces wouldn't fall out of the heart. I carefully pulled off the main part of the heart's front protective paper and applied blue foil to it. Then, while keeping all of the small bi…
