Bo Bunny and more from the Scraps of Darkness Store

Hello my friends!

I'm so happy to show you what I've created with some goodies from the Scraps of Darkness store. I love BoBunny and Kaisercraft products.
I also got to play with a new stencil. Who doesn't love stencils!!!

Here are some closeups of what I made. Of course the subject is my cutie pie niece Kinslee. I love what her folks did with her hair!!

Here you can see I fussy cut a rose and put it in this cool pocket watch. Here is the link:

Marion Smith Designs - Junque & Gems - Pocket Watches
and I used Judikins - Diamond Glaze Dimensional Adhesive
to adhere the paper inside and the watch to the paper. 

Here you can see some wonderful venetian lace peeking out among the Kaisercraft and Prima flowers.
Here are those specific links directly to our store

Grandma Jean

My dad asked me to make a layout of one of his remaining pics of his mother, Grandma Jean.
The photo wasn't in the best condition and it was a pic of a pic of a pic... you get the idea.

I definitely wanted a vintage feel to it. My dad asked for the colors of peach and blue. I went with a type of teal blue. 

Some interesting facts about my grandma was that she was a Police Officer- Meter Maid back in the 50's in Little Rock, Arkansas. She was also allowed to carry a weapon. Later she went on to be a nurse. I think the photo is just lovely.

Here you can see the word chippie from Creative Embellishments.

This is what I used to paint on the above chippie.

Below I used one of my StencilGirl stencils. I love their quality and variety. Also you can see some Prima flowers and the most top notch butterflies handmade by Renea H. Here you can see all her other fabulous products. 

Here you can see where I used my Anna Griffin embossing folders and I used my Anna Griffin Minc machine for that blue swirl. The pin was handmade by a fellow Flying Unicamper.


Here you can see some more stencil work and playing with microbeads.. loved playing with the beads.

My dad was so happy with this. He wants to make copies of it and send it to his siblings.

Well thanks for looking and have a great day.
Happy Scrappn!

Christmas Cards

I signed up for a Christmas card swap over at The Flying Unicorn. Making these cards has been a delight and sure put me in the mood for Christmas. I'll show some samples below.

I used some of my Anna Griffin Christmas Dies to layer under her sentiment. 

Here I tucked in some leaves and cheesecloth that I had sprayed green.

Here you can see a little peek of the cheesecloth.  

And for the rest ....
Now here's a card I was trying the Prima Extravaganza Snowflakes Paste. 

Some close ups now one of the things I noticed when I put it on the flowers its that whatever dye was on the flower the paste turned colors.. so it didn't stay white like I wanted. I will try it on another flower to see what happens.

Now on the card it stayed pretty white, the paste that is.

And here you can see the Anna Griffin foil, some of the elements I used were from Anna Griffin and some were Prima Victorian Christmas.

I'll be posting more cards this week.

Celebrate Card

Here is the card that we learned about at camp and here is a mini- tutorial on it.
It's just adorable!!!!

Quilling is not for the faint of heart.. but these flowers are awesome.

Precut your leaves from your favorite die cut machine and special flower. There are many in the market.  You'll want to gather the flowers in the different sizes and roll up the edges. You'll glue the littlest into the next size up keep it squeezed together.

It will look something like this. From here you would lay it aside and let the glue be setting. 

Here you can see that you'll want to roll the edges. Tuck in some flowers and leaves. The coordinating papers really help so you can flip them over to alternate the patterns


Here you can see I placed a doily and used foam tape to add depth and dimension, so that later I could tuck in those pretty tags. Also go ahead throw on the bling. That step will then be out of the way.

Here you can see more of the round scalloped embellishment with the tags tucked in. Also layer a smaller circle on top of the scalloped piece.

Below you can see what  I used to paint the pretty chippie, from Creative Embellishments.

Here are some close ups for you:

Here you can see the 2 tags used. Tie some pretty ribbon to make a bow and adhere some pretty metal embellishments.

As you can see .. tucking in various elements adds depth to this wonderful card.

Thanks for looking and Happy Scrappn!
