Have a Heavenly Day

Thought I'd share with you today a couple of items I made with this super adorable stamp set from Clear Dollar Stamps. The set is called Angel Ballerina Stamp Set.
The first thing I made was the card. I colored the Angel with COPICs, and added stickles to her wings. I surrounded the image with little flat back pearls, fabric flower and rhinestone brads.
For the little basket I added some pink ribbon and the sentiment surround was made with Nesties Contemporary Heart Pendant. I added little flat beads for the bottom of the basket, so it would have some feet!!
All CDStamps used: Angel Ballerina Stamp Set

CS and Papers: DCWV & Bazzill
Ink: Memories
Markers: COPICs E00 E33 RV09 C3 YG13
Access & Embellishments: Ribbon, Stickles, Flat back pearls, Rhinestone brads and fabric flowers

New sets & more from Clear Dollar Stamps

One of the set I received from Clear Dollar Stamps from their August Release is this fantastic HUGE set called Under the Sea by Shawn Arnold!!

I decided that this would make a perfect shaker card scene. All the images were stamped and then painted with tombow markers. I also duplicated the images to make it dimensional. I also painted the background using tombows and my aqua painter. Once dry I covered it all in shimmerz. I then used some acetate to make the shaker box. The shakers used were some micro beads I had in my stash!! I finished it off with some ribbon crystals and a fish charm!! Sentiment, also from the set, reads Enjoy Every Moment".

I will be posting the perfect coordinating item to go with this in a few days!! So stay tuned!!

Papertake Weekly - My Guest Dt Spot Week 3

My third week of being Guest Designer at Papertake Weekly. This week they have a theme for the challenge. The theme is Four Seasons. For this challenge you can use colours or things associated with your fave season, winter whites, spring pastels, summer brights and gold etc for Autumn.
I decided to use Beach Maggie and use bold summer colors. Instead of a card I decided to make a journal. I chalked the clouds in the background and used gamsol around the image. For the image itself I used COPICS. I then added some flowers, brads and ribbons. Hope you enjoy it.
