Desert Islands Crafter's Challenge is Back!

Hello! I am really excited about this post today! Why? Because Desert Islands Crafters Challenge is back! I'm hoping you've heard of our little challenge, but in case you haven't, here's the low down. On the 1st and 15th of each month, we will post a 10 item list. So if you were stranded on a desert island, and you had to use at least 3 of the items from the list, what would you create? To explain even further, here's the list for the next 2 weeks:
1. Things with Wings
2. Celebration
3. Let's Eat Cake
4. Spots or Dots
5. Stripes
6. Stars
7. Balloons
8. Your Favorite Color
9. Make it Sparkle
10. Anything but a Card

So, my project used #'s 1, 2, 4, 8, 9, and 10. I'd like to add, that we are sponsored by the fabulous Delicious Doodles.

I used the image called Venetian Beauty, and I colored her with my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I fussy cut her out and started to work on my background.


I used the Graduated Dot stencil from Dreamweaver Stencils (via Stampendous) along with some Dylusions sprays. I added a lovely scrap from DCWV to the bottom and Tear It! Tape from Imagine with fabulous burgundy glitter from Stampendous. 


I hope you will join us for our challenge. You have until the 14th of September....the new challenge goes up on the 15th. Please be sure to visit the DICC Blog to see what the rest of the team has created. 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
