Bling bling

I've been seeing a lot of projects that use embossing paste and the effect looked so cool! I wanted to try some out. After I ordered it, I saw this challenge over at the Simon Says Stamp blog called 'Let's Be Clear.' So I decided to use my translucent embossing paste and mixed it with some gold pigment ink. Using the SSS large morocaan stencil, I layed the paste on. It looked like a light brown color and I was worried how it would turn out. But when it dried, it looked amazing! Here's  what I came up with:

After sooooo long....

I can't believe it's been over a month since I blogged, since I've created anything! 

Today, I'm sharing something a tad different. I attempted to make a gift bag and, I have to say, I loved creating it! It doesn't sound like a lot of fun, or at least to me it didn't, but I LUUUUUUUVED making it! 

I love the pink against the cool colors. Pretty cute, huh?

Cupcake - For You card

And I'm back with yet another post. I'd be so proud if I continued at this pace.

Anyway, here is another card I created today for two challenges: the Avery Elle August challenge and the Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge. I used the sketch from the Avery Elle challenge and the colors were pulled from the Tuesday Trigger. 

Are You Our Next Guest Designer?

And here's what I created: 

I used vellum for the sentiment banner.I tried to add the polka dots on the cupcake liner with a toothpick and the little sugar speckles with my paper scorer. You can't really see the sheen from the glossy accents on the flower so here's a bit of close-up. 

I really love this card. It looks so much better than I had imagined it. 

Hope you enjoyed.

I'm back with a new card that I created for the Mama Elephant challenge as well as the CAS(E) this Sketch challenge. Here is the inspiration photo and the sketch: 

And here's the end result: 

How cute is that little giraffe? I absolutely love the lil' fella. 

That's it for today. Hope you enjoyed.

Leafy congratulations

Hello everyone! 

I guess this whole thing about being regular at blogging isn't really happening. I haven't been creating much lately so haven't had anything to share. 

Today, I finally went through some of the challenges and I made something for the Paper Smooches challenge. It was inspired by a project Jennifer created for Hero Arts. Here's what I came up with: 

I really like the colors that were picked for this challenge.I think they were perfect for the card. The only thing I think is missing is some glitter on the colored leaves. I've been eyeing the Wink of Stella pen for a while but I think it's about time I bought one. It would definitely be useful, especially at times like these when I'm travelling and can't decide what to take (and make sure I don't add extra weight by packing too many supplies.)

Thanks for stopping by.
