Stuck on U Sketches -Die Cut Team - SNOWFLAKE challenge. A Canvas

Hello and hope this finds you having a super crafty day! Below you will find my CANVAS.

Over at Stuck On U Sketches (SOUS) the challenge this time is to incorporate a SNOWFLAKE into your work.

I thought instead of a card I would use snowflakes on a canvas. I found this really cool stencil from StencilGirl. I also found my super cool snowflakes stamps and badges from 3rd Eye. I used my Cameo to cut out my Snowflake. There were so many options to choose from, it was hard to stop at one. I should have chosen a bigger canvas to go snowflake crazy on!!

Here is the final product:

I will include some close ups so you can see all the fun I had. 

Supply list:
Paper Temptress  Lustre Package 
StencilGirl Snow Storm Stencil 
3rd Eye Snowflake Badge TEBS007 and Crystal SnowflakesStamp - TES-183
Tim Holtz Distress Ink : Iced Spruce

There ya have it. I hope you will join us for these next two weeks and pop a snowflake onto one of your projects. Is it snowing where you live? Do you have any great photos involving you or your loved ones in the snow? I can't wait to have you join us in this challenge. Make sure to check out the rest of the Design Team's inspiration. You will love it!!

Paper Temptress - Snowflake

Hello Crafters

Today's my day up on the Paper Temptress Blog.
The piece I'm showing today is the first half. The rest of the project can be seen when it goes live on my blog on Friday.
The focus on this piece is Snowflake.
I am using the Laser Lustre package to make these pieces. I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the scalloped circles and cut the letters with this pretty font that had snowflakes embedded into the letters.

In the close up you can see the two different Lustre papers I used.

In these next 2 close ups you can see my 3rd Eye Snowflake Badge and stamp and my Viva Decor Metallic Rubs on my StencilGirl Snow Storm stencil.

Look out below! :)

In the above you can see what I cut on the Cameo focusing on my Paper Temptress Specialty Papers. Paper Temptress papers can help you with any project you come across.
Check out the Paper Temptress store today!

Masked for 3rd Eye DT

Good morning my fellow crafters!!
I am bringing you a canvas. I loved the mood captured in this photo. There are hints of blues and purples..and one white feather and one black.. a fun balance to play with. I thought this was a fantastic photo of Jamie Gaston. She's a long time family friend. Devin Castle Designs captured this awesome moment.
This fantastic dreamcatcher can be found in the 3RD EYE STORE.

In this close up you can see the top of the Dream Catcher chipboard from 3rd Eye. I edged the canvas in Inka Gold Metallic Rub in Steel Blue. I added some glass beads on top of some cardboard. Along the edge of the canvas I used some washi tape.  In this corner you can a Prima Vintage Trinket. Check out the 3RD EYE STORE to see all the pretty chipboard.

Here you can see I painted the dream catcher in black gesso first  and then highlighted it with some steel blue metallic rub. Also I have a black feather peeking out from beneath the picture.

I lined the bottom of this canvas in black lace. You can see more cardboard, beads, feather and trinkets. I did also use a Violet metallic rub.

In this photo you can see the beautiful moth badge beside a Prima trinket and flower. I edged the badge with some black gesso.
There are so many beautiful flair buttons in the 3RD EYE STORE go check it out!!

In this photo you can see the chipboard stamp and some Prima crystals with some gears. I used a bit gelatos  and metallic rubs around the stamped image. Along the canvas there are bits of torn paper from my 7Dots Studio stash.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you have a wonderful crafty day.
Happy Scrappn!

Christmas Door Hanger 1st Project for 3rd DT

My first DT post for 3rd Eye. How exciting!!!
Are you looking for a little something different for your Christmas decorations? I had bought a door hanger a while back and when I saw my new stamps and chipboard I knew they would be a perfect match! I love snowflakes of all varieties. 3rd Eye products to the rescue!!! Check out the 3RD EYE STORE for so many wonderful chippes and more!

I painted the wooden hanger with the metallic rub and then  I stamped some snowflakes on some pretty silver paper. I also had to include Renea Bouquets Butterfly which is just splendid. Check our her Etsy shop.

From this close up you can see this beautiful snowflake chipboard. I put Inka Gold Metallic rub- Silver and then topped it off with a little bling. You can also see one of the flair buttons there right above.  You can find these snowflakes in the 3RD EYE STORE.

This snowflake I heat set some Shimmerz Enamelz on my pretty little snowflake. You can see some of the stamping underneath.

Here you can see the stamps a little better. I also included the stars and inked them in various colors and used some stickles. You can also see another beautiful flair button. Hurry on over to the 3RD EYE STORE and check out these snowflakes.

I am not able to hang a wreath on my front door but this little guy fits perfectly. I'm so happy to have something so festive and pretty to hang on my front door! Now what could you make with these snowflake stamps, chipboard and badges?

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you found some inspiration. Check out the 3rd Eye store today.
Happy Scrappn!

In this photo I used my heat embossing powder from Close To My Heart : Sunny Yellow and my 3rd Eye Stamp - Rose.

In the above photo ... I used my EXCLUSIVE StencilGirl  Stencil... and my awesome LAVA RED  InkaGold Metallic Rub! It worked beautifully with this stencil.

Using another EXCLUSIVE StencilGirl Stencil from the month of October;this time using Lime Green InkaGold Metallic Rub.  

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut my Graphic 45 paper to make this butterfly and the round circle image behind the photo and topped off the butterfly with Stickles. I also used Heidi Swapp Color Shine : Black Velvet on this cardboard as well as several Gelatos.

Paper Temptress ~ FAMILY~ a card...

Hello Crafters!
Hope this finds you doing well.
I was inspired by Contadina K's card. I wanted to make a simple but meaningful card. Thank you CONTADINA for the inspiration!!!
I used the Cryogen White as a base for this A2 card. I inked the bottom piece with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I chose from my Brown Bag Kraft Package #2. I used the Brown Bag paper for the inset.  I stamped some leaves(3rd Eye) on the background and then embossed the image using my Anna Griffin "Aviary" folder. I stamped the leaves onto Heavenly White 80#.
Below is my card titled Family:

PT Family

Here are a couple of close ups:

I used several Distress Inks to color the leaves. 
Hopefully as we enter into the Thanksgiving season we can all find things to be grateful for.
Remember Paper Temptress has a wide variety of awesome specialty papers.  Be sure to check out our specials.
We are also still undergoing OPERATION WRITE HOME. Might you consider joining us in making a card for our troops. More information can be found on our blog here.
