Princess Framed Art

We are doing my 13 yr old dd's room in a medieval theme (basically a grown up
She had won this Unicorn pic at the fair a couple of months ago, it was in one of those paper frames....(you know the kind) so I took it out, double matted it with Gold and Black (Club Scrap)
cut down a sheet of Disney paper (Cinderella's Castle-DCWV I think), gold embossed a yellow flower, added the Burgundy flower (her room is in Gold and Burgundy) made up the poem, printed it and the title using Boister Black font, cut out title, and embossed with thick Gold UTEE, stamped the swirls and fireworks (FireCrackerDesignsbyPamela) with VersaMark and embossed those with Clear Kaleidoscope powder.
Put it all behind a glass frame and she has this great piece of art for her walls....

a couple of cards...

Here's the card I made for my bil's bday...I used the Tumbling Scarecrow set, Word Charms and Borders, and Chicken Up on You sets. Technique for bg was done using Burnished Watercolors from TJ's last newsletter. I have unfortunetly LOST my newest newsletter...sigh...I'm hoping to find it under a box, or something...I thought I had put it in my box with other important papers...but no such know I just thought of something...I have another stack of important papers in my I HAVE to go look there!!!!! EUREKA!!!! I found it!! I can read it and try out some of the new stuff!! ok, on with what I did today.....

This card I made for a customer. I try to send single stamps, or late stamps in hand made cards..which I am currently out of..sigh....SO I made this one up this morning too, so I could send her the stamp set she ordered. I think it came out very nicely! I used the Hangin Around Scarecrow set. Thanks for looking at my latest eye candy!

First Card in the New Studio!

Decided I've had enough of unpacking boxes for today, and sat down to play with the new Military Guardian Angel Set....this is what I came up with..I love the little
The bg paper for the image was done some time ago, using a TJ technique (I think it was pearl ex and ink misters)Anyway, I love the way it came out. The blue bg is from DCWV, Old World Mat Stack ( I LOVE those papers!!) I stamped the star (from the set) all over the bg in white, and embossed it with bridal sparkle embossing powder (not that you can see them in the scan...)
Then pop dotted the Angel above the patriotic Christmas trees. Can't wait to get in here tomorrow,and play some afternoon the girls and I are going to start on organizing their while they are at school tomorrow, I'm going to PLAY!!! Til then!
PS-I added a few more sets to the sale page!!
