Lizzie Anne

*This is actually getting posted the morning after I had planned. Isn't life crazy sometimes!?*

Wow, this post was started this morning. I got side tracked and forgot to finish it up! So, sorry for the late post!! My article on Lizzie Anne Designs ran on Craft Critique yesterday so I wanted to give more details on my projects.

This first one uses the Fairy stamp with a Chritstmas twist. I used BasicGrey Dasher paper and used watercolor papers and re-inkers to color her in. I also added stickles once I gave her wings time to dry. I also used velvet ribbon which I think gave it the perfect touch!

  • Fairy, Christmas stamps (Lizzie Anne Designs)
  • BasicGrey Dasher DP
  • Cranberry Crisp CS
  • Stazon Jet Black ink
  • aqua painter and re-inkers
  • Marvy Giga and Mega scallop circle punches
  • Coluzzle oval template
  • Stickles
  • ribbon, pop dots

I just love this snowman one! Too bad Clinton got ahold of it and wrinkled it beyond repair! It was so easy though that I can remake it, or even a few more. The card is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and I just put the top half in the embossing folder to run through the Sizzix. I inked up the embossed snowflakes with Cloud White and added glitter to the edges and under the snowmen. Can't get much easier than this!

  • Cool Caribbean CS
  • Stazon Jet Black, Versamagic Cloud White chalk inks
  • Cuttlebug Snowflakes EF
  • aqua painter and re-inkers
  • glitter
  • ribbon, pop dots, edge distresser

I found this last project to be pretty humorous! Why? Because I do all of the stuff that would be in here for my hubby anyway (yes, he is spoiled!)! Between you and me, I only filled out the first 4 because I couldn't think of anything else to write! After I was done with it I gave it to my daughter to play 'tickets' with. Now, I really love the idea of this! It just doesn't really work for me. I embossed the black and matted the ticket with Tempting Turquoise. I then hole punched them all and threw them onto a ring I had picked up at Walmart.

Well, seeing as how this is being posted way later than I expected Happy Halloween! I hope any of you who are taking your little ones out to trick or treat have a good time tonight! Jolee is going to be a Doctor, Ava is going to be a Leopard, and Clinton is going to be a Pirate. I can't wait to get pictures!! I'll probably share some tomorrow!!

By the way, I'll be posting some blog candy this week (FINALLY!!) so keep an eye out!!!
