BoBunny Madeleine Cards

Hello Crafty Friends! 
I'm just popping in to share a couple of cards I created using BoBunny's Madeleine Collection. Have you seen this collection yet? A beautiful mix of deep burgundy, pink, gray, green and gold...birds, cages and frames...
Delightfully beautiful and oh so shabby!

You can find it here


This cards was created with the beautiful "Symmetrey" paper for the background.
I used my Tim Holtz die to create the Rosette Flowers on this card.


BoBunny now has beautiful Mixed Media products! Stencils and Glitter Paste!
I used the Brocade stencil on the "This Makes Me Happy" card.

And Glitter Paste in Gold on both cards.


This card features stamping with the new "Stitches" stamp by BoBunny.
I've got a few stamps that are my faves and this is one for sure!


I've also used the "Sentiments" stamp to create my "hi friend' tag. I stamped it on vellum then placed it over a pattern paper die cut.

What are you creating with the Madeleine collection? I would love to hear about it!

Christmas Collage with BoBunny Tags

Hey All! Thanks so much for taking a peek at my blog today. I'm sharing two tags I created with the beautiful new Christmas Collage Collection.

Now who says tags have to be created with "tags?"
I used two Spellbinders Dies to create my tag front and back. I die cut the first one using the new BoBunny Chevron Dot paper.

I used the Christmas Collage Chipboard to embellish the tag along with some of the fabulous new Glitter Paste in gold. You can take a peek at them here and here

I created my own bow with seam binding and dyed it to match the paper. 

I used more BoBunny cardstock for the background on this tag.

More of the gorgeous Christmas Collage and some jewel flourishes!

All set to accent a package or they could also be used as a card and signed on the back.

If you are looking for a beautiful collection to start your Christmas Crafting with be sure to check out the Christmas Collage brand.

Close Ups- Artists Trading Blocks

Hi Everyone! Thank you for taking the time to stop in to see me today. I wanted to share more photos of the Artists Trading blocks I created a couple of weeks ago for BoBunny.

I used the "Souvenir" collection to create these blocks. I started with plain black cardstock and used file for Cameo to cut the blocks. It is a just a square box file. There are many tutorials on youtube on how to make your own if you don't own a digital die cutter. You can also use something like the Cuttlebug and this die by Sizzix.

The legs on this box are little wooden spools. I used some plain white tissue paper and the new Brocade Stickable Stencils. I love these stencils! They stick on the paper so no shifting! I also used the new Pearlescents with the stencil. I just dabbed it on with a sponge. Then I outlined the circles in a black Pitt Pen.

I layered papers cutting out images from this paper collection and collaging them. I also used a few different BoBunny Stamps along with their new stamp pads.  Some of the stamps I used are "Captured," "To The Point" and my very favorite "Stained Textures." You can find them here. BoBunny has stamp blocks too in a variety of sizes. I love those! 

The new ink pads and glitter pastes are awesome as well! I LOVE LOVE LOVE the ink pads. They work great for stamping and also work with a pad for distressing. I used several of the pads on my blocks. You can take a peek at the collection here and the glitter paste here.

The embellishments for my blocks came from the Souvenir collection. I used a lot of the chipboard and buttons. You can find them here.

These were a ton of fun to create! You can swap with other artists and start your collection. 

On this block I used some actual "Scrabble" tiles from a retired game. :)

 Love how the glitter paste looks. It's just like sprinkle glitter but without the mess! Genius really. Glitter in a paste. It dried clear on here so I was left with glittery gold!

On this block I fussy cut this hotel and wrapped it around the block!

I added a wooden mustache! It seemed to work! LOL

If you made it this far through my photo heavy post know that I truly appreciate it! I hope you enjoyed the inspiration and set off to create some blocks of your own!

Prima- September- BAP

Hi Guys! 
Trying to back into the groove of participating in the Prima BAP. I have great intentions of playing along each month but extra time to create is limited so I always miss the opportunity.

This month I pushed myself and squeezed a layout in based on the sketch. Have you seen it and are you playing along?

I used a past Scraps of Darkness for this page. This was from the April kit "His and Hers". As I have probably mentioned before red is my favorite color so this was a joy to create! 

I suppose you can tell I am now into this messy grungy look. Sometimes I am not sure if it looks great or is just a hot mess. :)

I've used a variety of mediums, mists, modeling paste, alcohol inks and ink for stamping.

A little washi tape to pick up the blue. I pretty much left it "clean" because my page is so busy and grungy I wanted a little freshness to rest my eye on.

Lot's of random stamping and fibers thrown in for good measure.

Just one more close up.

The photo is a copyright free one. I believe it's from Magical Moonlight. 

Thanks for stopping by!
