Happy Monday everyone! Its back to work time for me!! :( Oh well it was a nice holiday i can't complain!
This is another card kit that i have been dying to use! I love the Tilda and the paper!
I coloured Cherry Tilda with copics and cut her out.
My paper is PTI cream, green galore, dsp from kit.
I think i went a little embellishment crazy on this one! I used everything from the kit!! The ribbon, buttons, primas, doily, and dew drops are all from the kit!
I finished off the card with the sentiment that came in the kit as well! I just cut it into small pieces so it fit.
Well i hope you have a "cherry" day too:)

I coloured Tilda with copics and then cut her out.
I put some dew drops on the nestie and added the brad that came in the kit.

Happy Boxing Day everyone!! My family are out shopping and i am making cards! I hate shopping! ugh...
So i have a goal to try and get rid of some of these card kits i have lying around. This one has been coloured for a few months now...i never really knew what to do with it...so i just went with it!!
I coloured the frog with copics and cut her out with a nestie and mounted her on some elegant eggplant.
I then used the dsp from the kit and just started layering it..it is kinda busy but whatever! lol
I then used the ribbon and embellishments from the kit and went to town!
I put the sentiment on the inside it says "lip gloss, don't leave home without it". Not sure what i would use this card for though! ha ha
Have fun shopping if you are out and about!!

Ok this is by far the coolest thing i have ever made!! I am so excited to give this as a gift for Christmas! I wish i was giving it to myself though! lol
The paper is from the rockstar pack from DCWV. I then cut some of this cool flame paper i have had forever and never used it. So i cut the flames out and placed them on top.
I put a strip of real red on the bottom and stamped some stars from inkadinkado rockstar set. I then placed some of these cool skull brads i had along the bottom. They were hard to stick on though...i hope the stay!
I then printed out a Slayer logo i found online and a picture of Kerry King (the guitar player from Slayer) to put inside. I finished off the frame with my fave part of all. I wanted to get a goo punch from Michaels...not one Michaels around here had one!! So i used some of this pearl puffy paint and made my own blood:)
I may have to make one of these for myself!!! lol
The card uses the same supplies:) Have to have matching cards and presents ;)

wow this week has been a week of frames!! At least they are all done now:) I love making these!
This one was super easy because again this rockstar paper by dcwv rocks!!
I used some ribbon from the paper source because it matched the heart paper perfectly!
I used a lot of bling because the challenge on the corrosive challenge blog is bling!! So i added bling to the center of the stars and on the guitar.
To finish off the frame i used my SU heart punch and wrote their names in it and put some more bling on there:)
Be sure to head over to the Challenge blog and see all the other blingy projects!!

For my card i used a card kit i had because i was limited for time (story of my life lately huh??) This one was perfect though because is orange and i wanted to use a Greeting Farm stamp:)
I coloured Ian with copics. I coloured the cupcake and martini with copics too. I then cut them out and placed them on the tray! I may have to buy this stamp, its fun with all those accsessories.
I then cut him out with nesties and matted him on some real red. All the papers are from the kit.
I found some of these cool SU buttons that matched perfectly and added them to the top, and this SU ribbon was sitting on my desk so i used it too!
I finished off the card with happy birthday from teeny tiny wishes (i love this set, i think i say that every time i use it! lol)

Ok so i made this frame (you will see lots of these i am making my friends them for christmas!) for a secret santa i am in with bowling. I always like to make things:)
It was really easy! I covered the frame ($1.50 from michaels!) with some SU dsp, its kinda fuzzy...its cool! Oh and use SU sticky strip, it holds it really well!!
I then used some SU satin ribbon around the edges with some bella bon bons on them. I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch and put more bella bon bons in the middle of them.
