Miss Lilly Summer - DT Project for LBBS

I'm here with my 3rd and final project as a guest designer for Little Blue Button stamps.  I have had a blast with each of my projects and I decided to make something big for my final one.

I used some chipboard pennants from Fancy Pants which I have had in my stash forever.  I covered them in paper from the Endless Summer stack from DCWV (also an oldie).  I decorated each of the banners with a doily from Michaels and a spellbinders out of the patterned paper.

Then they were decorated with flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and some acrylic flowers and butterflies.  All the laces are from my stash and then I also used some iridescent flat back pearls from MB Treasurista.

I absolutely love the way it turned out and Miss Lily Summer is so adorable.  Below is close up pictures of each of the banners.  Be sure to stop by my youtube channel for a video of it.

Miss Lilly Summer was coloured up with Copics (colours listed below).  I added some glitter with Wink of Stella on her skirt and the ribbon on her hat and then I added some crystal accents on her sun glasses.  I decided to make the popsicle into a fudge-sicle - mmmmm!

Hope you have enjoyed my projects for Little Blue Button stamps - head on over to their website and get yourself some of these stamps and digi's for yourself!!

Happy Papercrafting!

Accordian Bean

I was playing around with different folds for cards and came across the accordian card fold from Splitcoaststampers.  The card base has been sitting on my desk for weeks just staring at me - so finally I matted it up and added some super cute Beans from the Magical Bean kit (which you can still buy right now at the Greeting Farm or Not2Shabby).

 It is so adorable!!  I added some black doily dies from My Favorite Things and some spellbinder shapes with the stamped sentiment.  All the paper is from the Citrus Stack from DCWV.

You can see the sparkle from the Wink of Stella on the images and the black doilies.
Check out my youtube channel from a close up look!
Here is the colic marker colours that I used on these two images.

Miss Lilly Glasses - Guest DT for LBBS!!

Hi Everyone!

I have my second project for Little Blue Button stamps and I am so super excited about this one.  I decorated an envelope from the DCWV Vintage Collector line and she is adorable!!
I coloured up Miss Lilly Glasses with my Spectrum Noir and Copic markers and added some paper from the Authentique Sweetness collection.

For the base on the envelope I used one of my new dies from Mama Elephant which has a scallop card base and a stitched layer for inside.  I die cut some floral paper from the Vintage Collector and a vellum piece for the inside.  The sentiment "Just Eat Ice Cream" is fussy cut from the Authentique collection and I added a sprinkling of sequins all over.

The marker colours that I used are listed below and for some additional interest I added diamond stickler to her headband and her dress and glossy accents to her glasses.  I really do love the way this one turned out.

If you would like a closer look please visit my youtube channel to see the video on this project!

Guest Designer, Little Blue Button Stamps - Yah me!!!

Hi Everyone!

I am so happy to be coming to you today with a project for Little Blue Button Stamps.  I was chosen to be a guest designer for the month of June and will be sharing three projects with you.

So, for my first project I started with Sweet Geisha Charlie and I wanted to alter an item.  I chose a paper mache note pad holder that has been in my stash for quite some time.  I started by colouring it with black gesso and then covering it with patterned paper from the Bo Bunny Enchanted paper line.

She turned out so sweet.  I coloured her up with Copic and Spectrum Noir markers and added some glossy purple with a Sakura gel pen.  I used the Tim Holtz Ornate frame for the background and stood it up with a picture frame backing that I pulled off of one of the Micheals $1.50 ceramic frames.
Added some little white doilies from my stash and decorated with roses from Wild Orchid Crafts and cherry blossoms from I am Roses.

Check out my YouTube channel for a closer look and a list of marker colours used.
Stay tuned for more projects before the end of the month - thank you so much for stopping by.
