Back to School

Welcome to Melonheadz challenge this challenge is Back to School.  I choose to make a sign that I put magnets on back. The sign is something I picked up at Micheals than painted. My daughter's favorite color is blue so used some Viva decor blue paint. I love this Back to school bundle. I colored the books and sign with my markers. The little items around the sign are acorns from my yard. The numbers were cut with my Silhouette.

Unity is having a FB challenge of using your Itty Bitty stamps. These two stamps were part of a grab bag that I got. I used some Washi tape to add just a touch of belittlement. I am not sure of this CAS but decided to go with it.

Ok, this card is kind of different for me. I tried to do more of a distressed feel. The blue one has paint than embossed than inked. The die cut was colored with Distress ink. My embellishments are buttons and Candi dots. The saying is from Unity. The colors were chosen to follow Unity's color challenge.

Inspired Stamps

This week we were asked to create a set of cards using one Scripture verse. I choose 1Thessolians 5:16-18. I used a simple color scheme and used different dies to change the look and different placement of the ribbon. The bottom card has washi tape.

Beach Owl

This is a image is from Kaboodle Bug Designs. I finally figured out how to do the cut and print on my Silhouette. I added glossy accents to his eyes and distress stickles to the sand. I inked the ball to give it dimension. It fits Cut it Up challenge of summer. The second challenge is Parade your Crafts with a Summer theme. I love nothing better in summer than spending time at the beach.

Flowers, Flowers, Flowers

Welcome to Melonheadz challenge. The challenge is to use lots of flowers. I used two different sets. My time is short so I used the colored version of both sets. Valentine's Day 2013 bundle & Mikella's deluxe embellies bundle are the two bundles I used. I think this would be perfect to cheer up some one.
