More Daisy's

just a few more for the store... this ones A-6 in real life.
This ones A-2 in real life.
that is a food doily under the Impress daisy diecut.
I'm thinking I need to find someone who colors hedgehogs and house mouse's with copics to see what colors they are using because, I like mine better in pencil still...
silk flower petals discombobulated years ago with a plastic button with the shank removed. May Arts ribbon. ctmh gingham pp. 3 1/2" square.
glanced back at the table as I was shooting the last card and thought ha, you should show the mess...
this is the aftermath of 5 cards Saturday, 11 cards sunday and 4 cards monday...
the time saving thing was I stamped all the daisy's I found and cut them out, found silk petals, found crochet blooms, found buttons etc... textured some various white & yellow cardstocks in things that looked like they could go with Daisy's gathered some tags and pre scored folded gift card size cards...
results in a basket filled with cards to haul to the store to see if they will work. didn't want to make too many with the secret sister theme on the daisy's in case they don't like the fact that MM letters magnets repel each other on the handle and result in uneven type on the stamped pieces... Probably be wed. before I have time to find out though. tomorrow's an ice run among other things.

Hollyhocks for Kim

This one was done for this weeks featured stamper challenge at splitcoast, Kim Luv Flowers, Congratulations Kim! one thing that struck me while I was cruising your gallery was how often and well you do a blue green color combo and then I came across this cardhttp://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...p;ppuser=85060
and I totally LOVED the softness of the colors, so since I had just received this stamp in the mail the other day and I "think" they grow in blue ( the ones in my yard are red ) I decided to use your card as the sketch/colorcombo jump start for mine. to keep the softness I colored this with chalks and a blender pen, changed the stamps and switched the ribbon to lace. (had to sew the panels my glue's not sticking really well now that its cold enough to snow)
This is 6" square in real life, the Image is from PSX stamped with versafine on some Neenah Earthstone ( which is actually specke-ly looking and not quite white or cream in real life) colored with su chalks and a tombow blender (that really needs replaced) and the Sentiments from an old old su set ( no clue on the name but the rubbers purple and the date on the block is 2006) that was die cut wish some Petite Oval dies. the flower panel is up on pop dots. the Check pp is from My Minds Eye, the handmade paper was run through an Craft Concepts budding vine embossing folder. the lace is vintage wrights hemming lace, the blues are from Bazzill, the green shimmer strip is from DCWV, I though the base was sage shadow, but its not the same shade as the samples that came to me via wish rak so, now I'm wondering if its some old color of CTMH. ( not sure)


Baskets of Hearts

Isn't this just so useful? I thought so, this basket filled with heart sprays ( kinda looks like heart shaped baby's breath) is from Northwoods, as is the tag sentiment and the filled with love sentiment on the tag below. Stamped it with Cocoa memento on an old old scrap of Basic Grey pp. then colored with copic's. the Hearts have some diamond glaze painted onto them with a tiny paint brush.
The larger piece of pink printed paper is from Cratepapers. the lace is vintage, the pink lace is actually elastic. the base is Bazzill and this ones 6" square in real life.
All stamps are from Northwoods, stamped with Memento and colored with copic, tombow & su markers, on a scrap of Making Memories check print paper and the tan pp is from Basic grey. the gingham ribbon's unknown, the burlap is from May arts and the chocolate hemp strings from Walmart. the button and pink clothes pin are from Pebbles. these were die cut with spellbinders dies and are lined on the back side with cardstock for support.
A no calorie Valentines Treat Basket. found this metal basket at Fred Meyers recently ( its not too big in real life.) Its filled with a bunch of Butterflies I found when I was trying figure out what to do the altered clothes pin below and rejected all of them on it... Im sure they will look great on cards or what ever she does with them.

Something different I guess. was thinking bridal shower hang it on say a bottle of tub bubbles or something? ( its a wine bottle tag die from Paper Trey ink cut in Neenah classic cream) the largest doily is from Cheerylynn ( Celtic Fire) {note, if you do not own a metal shim... buy one. it take a couple of time through the but turning the diecut to cut this then it takes a little while longer to pop all the holes clean with a stick pin) but, it will cut for me in a cuttlebug, I did tape this DCWV (thicker) printed paper to the die before I started. The Kraft doily and Dress form are also from Paper trey ink that were rak'd to me from Janice ( Thanks Chickie!) the tag sentiments from Northwoods. added some black gellyroll glaze pen to the heart and hung it on a tim holtz memo pin. the half pearl covers the sharp point of the pin.

Something interesting I came across on pinterest recently... was this way to get skinny mats for your spellbinders diecuts. so the housemouse image was die cut with that size of labels 8 then I glued the image to the pp I wanted to be the mat, then placed the die over the top of it, traced around the edge of the outside of the die. and cut it with scissors. its not as "perfect" as an actual die cut, but I tend to do distressed things so often most people probably wont even notice.
This image was something I horse traded for way back in the bad ol days of Pay it forward image swapping... he's colored with prisma pencils. ( Sorry, I don't remember its name or who sent it to me anymore) the sentiments from an Justrite charms set, the tag was die cut with an Memorybox die. the edges have some yes, you guessed it colorbox fluid chalk ink cream brown along the edges. the brads from recollections. the lace and ric rac are vintage and sewn to the card layers. the pp is double sided Basic grey. and this ones A-6 in real life.

One of my Christmas gifts this year was these portable lights. they have some HUGE lightbulbs in them and weigh next to nothing to lift, but because the lights are inside light boxes, I took my lightbox off the file cabinet near the window down and then just put up this memory screen for a backdrop. (to keep direct sunlight off too) So far so good, need to try shooting something in the middle of the night to see how these lights do in the dark.
