Once again I've made a card for one of my co-workers. She and her husband do the Harley Davidson thing. LOL I make that sound like it's so cute...really, it's so cool! ;) For this card I decided to still keep it girlie for her. I found this fun Betty Boop image free online. I added the sentiment. I made some fun stick pins and added a "charm" that says "Celebrate". I added one rose and some gems. I wanted a little more texture so I added some cheese cloth. Not sure if you can see them, but, I also added some "tickets" from a punch I have that I punched some map from.
Last night I wasn't feeling well...so, I figured instead of going out with friends I'd stay home in my craft room. I looked up some fun new ideas and found these cool necklaces and a neat wind chime all made using shells. I'm not sure where they came from, but I have all of these bigger shells I can't really use on my cards since they are so heavy...so I wanted to do something with them. Here is what I made.
This was my first thing... I decided to make a necklace that represents BSU's (Boise State University) Football Team... I had to drill a hole into the shell, actually, I had to do that with all of the shells I played with. I used a black sharpie and wrote BSU, created the "charm" to dangle added gems, went over the letters with clear nail polish and then added a football bead and a bow.
This next necklace I made I used a larger shell. The butterfly I found at a garage sale. I added the blue and gold to the wings then panted over that using a glittery nail polish. I added beads and a chain.
This last one took a bit longer, there were a lot of holes I had to drill, plus using twine instead of metal...not fun! LOL I think this one is pretty self explanatory...Lots of shells, twine and some beads. I sort of want to decorate the big shell...just not sure how I want to...any ideas?
Thanks for looking!
Pile It On – (winners announced on Wednesdays) –
Tonight I was feeling the need to make a card...just because! So, since it seems like it has been so long since I've used one of my many Bugaboo Stamps, I chose to play with one of those. I used their fun theme which is this picture:
I used several different DPs, some flowers, a glittery shell, some gems and a seahorse charm. I was wanting to add some stickle glitter to her fin, sadly, I can't find it...I still have some things I haven't unpacked, just not sure where it all is. LOL
Here is another birthday card I made to have at work. This one is using an image from Wink Wink called Unicorn Rainbow, you can find this in a set called Beauty. I useed two round dies (one scalloped), some butterflies punched from a border punch, some flowers, pearls and a bow.
Thanks for looking!

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is a tic tac toe board. We are being sponsored by Fabrica Fantasy. The pre-colored image I used was "Summer Lynx". I placed this image onto some rainbow digi paper and added the word digitally as well. I then printed the image out, I added some "stitching" around the image and added a couple solid colors of cardstock. I added a bow and some gems, then decided to "pop" the image by added a butterfly on top of the butterfly with a pop dot, and made his head pop as well.
On this card I used two DP's, and a few different colors of card stock. I used a few different punches to punch them all out. I added ribbon and lots of gem flowers. I created the background myself using colored pencils.
