Doll Tag Swap for Scraps of Darkness

Hello crafty friends, 
I'm back with a tag I made for the Scraps of Darkness Doll Tag Swap.  I loved using my Julie Nutting Mixed Media Doll Stamp -Mindy.
This beauty is going to Sarah R in Canada.
I actually used two tags and cut them to make one oversized tag. I edged the tag with some paint and then layered on some papers and die cuts. I used a few embellishments in the flower, wood shape and fancy leaf. 

You'll be able to find the products that I labeled in the Scraps of Darkness Store.

Here's the my cutie pie Mindy tag:
I started off stamping my doll stamp with some archival ink and put on the wonderful paper from Blue Fern Studios Serendipity line - Contemplation. You can find the paper I used for my doll here.



and here are some close ups starting with the gorgeous Prima flowers which can be found here. They are called Prima Flowers - Slate:


Here you can see the background paper I used from Blue Fern Studio Serendipity Line -Reminisce paper. As you can see I went around the edges with the Prima Art Alchemey Paint.



I used some Prima dies to pop out of the top and bottom under the paper.


Here you can see the BoBunny Kraft Wood Shapes. I chose to leave it in its natural state.



Another shot of the BoBunny Kraft Wood Shapes coming out of the top of the vase.


Here you can see the purple liquid pearls and Waterfall stickles I used on her dress. I also used some pink stickles on her headband.


Here you can see I used some Waterfall Stickles and some bling from my stash to dress up her shoes.


Along the edges of the tag I used Nuvo Crystal Drops- Metallic Bright Gold and  Prima Art Alchemy Acrylic Paint:  Opal Magic Green Gold 


Here is another look at the full tag including some ribbon from my stash.

BoBunny Kraft Wood Shapes Elegant  
Blue Fern Studio Serendipity Line -Reminisce paper

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.
