Birthday Tag Card

Im behind, and i am ashamed! lol  Here is my Tag Card for Teddybo Challenge Blog, for the Fairy Tale Friday installment.  Dont you love this image of teddybo pointin...? I did up this tag with the prima printery papers, and did it all in creams, whites, tans, brown, khaki.  Cutting out the flowers with fabric was fun and yet a challenge, as its muslin i think and it was trying to fall apart on me...but i do like the effect that it gives with the raggity edges.  I love to touch the flowers on the card its so soft and fun.

Woohoo!!! It’s Teddy Bo and Co’s first birthday! and to celebrate we are having a birthday blog hop.

There are some fabulous prizes to be won, including vouchers and candy, and there is also a chance to win a Teddy Bo and Co digi stamp from each member of the DT.

Here is my contribution to the Hop, I made 2 items with the cute new images this week, both projects were colored with promarkers. I added diamond stickles and glossy accents to them both as well! For the card project i cut out the hearts and then i rubbed them with a rounded end of a pen to make them "puffy" and added the stickles and faux stitching to the edges. Machine stitching on the card as well. 

For the heart project i covered a piece of card board with some simple stories paper, cut and rolled the Die-Namics rolled flower die from mftstamps.com  I added stickles to the centers of the brown flowers and to the balloons in the image, along with glossy accents for a pop of shine and sparkle! The scrabble tiles i found at the thrift store (keep your eyes out for them they are so cheap to buy ) and on a plain tile i colored a heart and added some stickles.  So cute! Be a great valentine for someone special!

Remember you can win a prize from my blog, make sure you are a follower of my blog, leave a comment for a chance to win! Blog hop ends January 23, so you have plenty of time to enter!

Darcys Diaries is OPEN!!!!!

  Yeah!!! Its finally here! The grand opening of D'arcy's Diaries! Aren't they just Fabulous??? We on the DT for D'arcy's Diaries are just head over heals in love with these images! As you will be able to see by stopping over to www.Darcysdiaries.com and checking out this new line of digital stamps!
 I made this vintage type card with the  fairyD_TB_girl_04 image. Colored with promarkers , Umber, antique pink were the 2 colors i used. highlighted with a Gelly roll pen. I aged the tags and the snow flakes in a coffee/vanilla mix and baked them in the oven. I added some stickles to the little snow flakes and some buttons and twine!
 This journal i used the FAIRYD_TB_girl_02 image. I printed 2 cut out the wings and the heart on one , colored the other image with promarkers, added the colored pieces of the wings and the heart for a 3D effect, added stickles of gold on the wings and around the image. The heart has pink distress stickles. I painted this 99c journal after mod podging scrapbook paper on the front and back covers. I layed the white paint on then took an old credit card and scraped it off to make it a thin layer, giving it an aged effect. I added some die cut sticker strip from a paper pack i had, and then glued a line of the rolled rose fabric strip over the top. I punched a hole in the edge and tied a ribbon to each cover so that it can be tied shut. I added the printed sentimens of "my heart journal" in a childish font for fun! Ready for anyone to start a journal today! (you can find it in my etsy store!)
 I loved these images for the opening so much i decided it would be fun to make one of my albums with them. This is a 5x5 paper bag album. I do ALOT of them for special orders! This Album will also be listed in my Etsy Shop click on the side bar  under the ETSY logo and it should take you there.I used lots of ribbon, all the images and i die cut all the flowers. Its a Spellbinders Shapeablilities flower creations die.  I used the die to also be my stencil to stencil a high light on the flowers giving them some demention. Since im into journaling now i decided that it should be a journal album. I came up with and printed off the Me , Myself , and I theme , hand stamped the journal on the tab. machine sewing through out. Lots of brads and rhinestone.
 Here is a journaling spot on the second page and a pull out tag behind this sentiment of Dancing to the beat of my own drum. You could tuck a picture on that page as well, there are a couple sewn in tabs.
 page four has another sentiment of Listen to my Heart with a place to place a picture on the fifth page with another pull out tag for journaling.
 Here on page 6 is a large spot for a picture with sewn in photo tabs and a large pull up tag big enough for another picture or two or lots of journaling! Behind the sentiment and cute darcys dairies image is another large tag to match other other side again for more journaling or another picture! The sentiment reads....Stopping to smell the flowers....
 Page 7 has the cute darcys diaries image in the snow...with the senitment of Enjoying the simple things with a large tag behind in a pocket. Page 8 is a placement for a picture tuck it in behind the cute flowers and the sewn in photo tab.
The last few pages have lots of flowers  and polka dots! large placement for a photo beind the flowers and with sewn in photo tabs on the one side and the sentiment with the Darcys Diaries image, sentiment reads....The Creator of my own Destiny..... thought that was appropriate!

So here are a few examples of what you can do with the new images, they are fabulous and so fun to use, for all sorts of projects. keep us in your favorites and please follow me to keep up with the latest over at Darcys Diaries and Teddybo.com

Wild Thing Card Set

My Friend Melinda fell in love with this image and wanted me to make her up some cards with it! Its a Magnolia stamp, sweet crazy love...! I colored it with Promarkers, keeping it subtle because i was going to do a background that popped! I added a dotted background to the image, cuz i just like that way it looks and its me....and it adds more "texture" I got a suprise package from melinda the other day and in it was this roll of burlap!!! soooooooooo i thought how cool would it be to use on this card! The back ground die cut shape i did the shaving cream technique! how fun is that. Bailee my daughter and i  had shaving cream up to our elbows! lol You just spray some shaving cream on a paper plate then drop some of you inks on to the shaving cream, then swirl through the shaving cream. Press a sheet of card stock, i used stampin up into and press down . I did a whole sheet 8x12 in to the saving cream and had to lift and move around till the whole paper was covered. Let set a minute, then scrap off the shaving cream. And wow...look what you get, always something new every time. For the burlap, i had to think of how i was going to attach it to the card. I had all kinds of ideas but finally decided to just mod podge it to a colored piece of card stock and let it dry, it sticks to the card stock really well and easy with the mod podge. And then the colored card stock peeks through. I added some twine along with the sentiment wild thing you make my heart sing..from magnolia as well. I think Melinda will be pleased with these cards. I made her another suprise, i will post AFTER she recieves her order as i dont want her to sneak a peek before!
I will have some  more items to show in the next few days AND dont forget TUESDAY is the big Teddybo.com birthday blog hop and prizes and things will be given away, one from my blog! So keep checking back ok!

I usually am not a person for lots of flowers and frillys, im more of a layer, add a few buttons or such and im good! lol So i wanted to make this tag special and  go outside my comfort zone i guess..and this is what i came up with.  The teddybo image is colored with promarkers, I used the nonnas garden paper pack as you can see! some ribbons, buttons, crochet flowers and little roses.

New Teddybo Releases!

Here is my card for the new releases over at Teddybo.com
I picked this image to color up and make into a card
cuz it looked so fun with the texting theme!
I wasnt into texting , thought it was a waste of time
then when we signed up for our phones a few
years back the program had 3 talk and text,  so
since the 2 boys were set up for it the third phone was ME
So the boys and I text as i do with a few of my friends as well, not
like the kids do but i still text. Im no pro and dont know
all the things the kids know but I get by. 
This is my first attempt at rolled ribbon flowers! And i think they turned out
pretty darn good and i think they are cute!
