New challenge at LOC Challenge #131 Stars with Karleigh Sue and Sassy Studio

I would like to share my DT project with you. This week at “LOC- Left of Center Creative Challenges” our challenge theme is to use “Stars.” Our sponsors this week is “Karleigh Sue Digis” and “Sassy Studio Designs.”

I have used a Digital Stamp from “Sassy Studio Designs,” called “Space Princess Honey.”  (Follow the link to get yours.)

I created a hanger to let someone special know that they are a “Star!!”

Stars-challenge

I colored my digi stamp “Space Princess Honey,” with Copics. I used a circle die cut to draw in the Moon. I just free handed the plant she is sitting on. It’s just some random plant in a Galaxy far far away!

Over at “Kit and Clowder” this is the background technique being taught for this month’s “Create and Learn” class by Alyce Keegan.

All the card stock ant the ribbon is from SU. The rubber stamps (Starts and sentiment) are from Fun Stampers Journey.

This digi stamp was printed out on “X-Press It Blending Card.”

Here is a closer view of the Digital stamp:

My grand-daughter is here visiting me for a bit, and her name Leia. So when we are out in town, people ask her what her name is and she says “Leia,” they reply with “Like Princess Leia for Star Wars.” Since she is only 4 she has no idea what this means, so the look on face is precious. (She was not named after Star Wars however.)

So my Princess Leia wanted to color with me, so I printed her out this same digi onto regular copy paper and she used Prismacolor pencils to color:

I used the same Fun Stampers Journey circle die to make her moon, and at first she wanted a “Field,” so that is what I drew in. Then later she said that her image is sitting on water.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my post. Please leave a comment.

Challenge# 128 The Goblyn Workshop – Mixed Media

Good morning,

I have a Mixed Media canvas project to share with you all today. Over at the challenge blog “LOC – Left of Center Creative Challenges,” we have the sponsor “The Goblyn Workshop.

This week’s theme is: “Mixed-Media”

We at LOC do not mind who’s products or images you use, just nothing to overly done with flowers!

Here is what I created for this week:

MM-challenge.jpg

The girl is a rubber stamp from Julie Nutting doll. I colored her hair, skin, and bolder hat with Copics, the rest was paper-pieced. I sprayed some white dylusions spray on the skirt.  I used some tiny half pearls for a necklace.

The bolder hat is a rubber stamp from Tim Holtz, from the accessories for the “Crazy Cats and Birds.” All of my metal pieces, the bird,the heart, the cogs, skull, key holes, ect… That is all from Tim Holtz. I used some Fun Stampers Journey molding paste, and a stencil from “Stencil Girl,” to create my background.

Afterwards, I sprayed it with “dylusions” sprays. Then I added some “Rubz” to the background and the metal pieces.

The red thingy next to the doll, is my idea of a bouquet.

Thank you for taking a look, I would love some comments, let me know what you think.

Dont forget to link up your “Mixed-Media” project at: http://leftofcenterchallenges.blogspot.com/

Challenge #115 Anything Goes with Fun Stampers Journey

Hello paper crafters,

I am personally sponsoring our Left of Center Creative Challenges, challenge blog this week. It’s not running for a whole week like they usually do. It was posted late so you only have 3 days to link up but good news, you might win an actual stamp from me.

Here is a photo of the stamp the winner will receive.

Prize-LOC

This is a deeply etched red rubber stamp.

My card is not creepy or out of social norm, just made an easy going Valentine’s Day card. If you cant handle the normalcy of it, you can just by pass this post from “Dont be a Prude.” So here goes.

 

ch115-fsj.jpg

I have used the Fun Stampers Journey stamp set called “Cupid” item# AT-0037 $7.95.

I black embossed the cupid onto “Bubble Gum” card stock item# CS-0112, then added “Bubble Gum Silk” item# IP-0092. By the way, if you follow the link for the Bubble Gum Silk, it is not as dark as it looks online. It is however as it looks on my card stock in the photo. It’s that splashed look I used it on the corner piece and on the paper behind the heart. I distressed the edges of the corner paper with “Bubble Gum” ink, item# IP-0058.

To make the piercing on the heart I used a needle and spent about an hour…..

No way just kidding, who has time for that? Not me I did it the easy way and used our “Heart-Felt Bundle” die set, item# BD-0072. It come with several sized hearts and nesting piercing heart dies. We many  other styles of nesting piercing dies.

I used some of our Patterned Card Stock. Our patterned paper is CS weight and double sided. It’s considered Premium quality! And I agree!

I stamped our “Oatmeal Cookie” card stock item# CS-0023, with “Oatmeal Cookie” ink item# IP-0011; then popped the top layer up on pop dots. I used the stamp set called “Brush Strokes” item# SS-0205.

Topped things of with:

Journey Twine in “Black Licorice” item# AC-0004.

Journey Sequins- “Pink World” item# AC-0112.

Candy Apple ink item# IP-0017.

Gold Silk item# IP-0096.
