Be Mine Canvas

Hi everyone! I hope you're surviving the dreadful cold! I can't wait until spring. I have been trying my hand with canvas' lately. I love working with canvas and getting my hands dirty. I used an 8x10 canvas, a brick stencil with modeling paste, Dylusions spray inks, Tattered Angels Glitter mist, Pan Pastels, and some flowers from Wild Orchid Craft. I am going to get a pic of me and my husband to fit in the middle. I just haven't made it to the photo center yet! :) So, as soon as, I thaw out from all this snow I will go get one printed off.
I hope you all have a Blessed day!

Hi everyone! I've missed you all very much! I haven't had time to sneak around and look at your amazing blogs for far toooo long! But hopefully I will soon.
I was able to whip this card together yesterday for my sister-in-law who is spending a year overseas serving in the Army. She has worked so hard, and is now a helicopter pilot! I hope she enjoys this card, and returns home to us safely.
I used the beautiful sketch over at Make it Monday with Kraft Outlet. I was low on time and creativity, so this sketch really helped me out! :)
Take care all, and Be Blessed!

Christmas Canvas

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas! I was hoping to get this posted yesterday, but with traveling and my computer battery deciding to die it just didn't happen. :)
I made another canvas for my husband. I used the stamp from Wild Rose Studio called Baby Jesus. So again, I had an idea in my head for this canvas and 21 retries and re-do's later, this is how it turned out! I just got some pan pastels in a couple of weeks ago and really enjoyed playing around with them on this canvas.
I hope you enjoy my project! And I will hope that I get a new camera soon. The pictures just don't do the metallic pan pastels justice. They are so gorgeous!

Some close up pics!

Used the following:
Gesso, Modeling paste, Perfect Pearl mists, Pan Pastels, Copics, Chalk

Have a Blessed day!

Building A Snowman

Hello all! Merry Christmas! I hope you are able to enjoy a lovely peaceful day surrounded by loved ones!
I have a card to share with you for the new challenge up at the 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog! It's always Anything Goes so I hope you will join us! 

Sadly, this will be my last card with this amazing team! I have decided to take a break from card making and crafting to concentrate more on family. Thank you Tabitha, Karen, Kelly, Rhea, Colleen and all the fabby DT teamies for letting me be a part of your team! :)

I have used the beautiful stamp Building a Snowman from Wild Rose Studio. I colored these cuties with copics and added some fluff mixed with microfine glitter.  I spritzed the small doily with perfect pearl mist and added some snow to the farm fence die cut using a snowpen. The flowers are from I Am Roses and the lace and ribbon are from my stash. The frame was cut using the elegant edges cartridge by Cricut.

A Christmas Carol

Hi all! It's getting really close to Christmas now! I made this Christmas card for Crafty Ribbons Advent Inspirations! I hope you will have a chance to check it out and join in! 

For today's card, I've used A Christmas Song by Crafty Sentiments! I cut out a mat for my image with my cricut cartridge Elegant Edges. The paper is from The First Noel DCWV stack. The stamen are from WOC and the charm and lace are from Hobby Lobby.

I made a small tutorial for the tree die cut. I first cut them out and stamped music notes on them. Then rubbed vintage photo and peeled paint on my mat. I spritzed with water and ran the trees through. I did it again to make my colors darker. The last pic is of the tattered florals die cut. I did the same process to make the flower except I used a script stamp and barn door distress ink.
