Cereal box magically becomes card holder!

I entered into a challenge over at My Scrap Room
We had to alter a cereal box into a card/envelope holder for Christmas.
We had to use Christmas theme, poinsettia, ribbon, felt, and  a stamped image.
 
 
 
 For my poinsettia I used Mark's Finest Papers stamp set.  Has a beautiful poinsettia.  I fussy cut several layers and then put them together with Scrap Dots.  Give them some height.  I used Distress stickles and Liquid Pearls to jazz them up.
 I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, outlined stamped it withTim Holtz Snowman Blueprint tag & die cut it.  My felt is the little leaves on the poinsettias around the sentiment.
Add string pearls from Wild Orchid Flowers. (that's also where the small poinsettias came from)
 Here's a close up of the fussy cut poinsettia's
 

I LOVE how it turned out.  I'll definitely put this to use immediately!
Hope you'll go check out Gina's site.  They have tutorials, swaps, photo gallery like all ning sites.

Stacked Pumpkins Class

Fall is in the air!  The painters were excited to paint this great 16x20 Social Art-networking Design!  The did a fabulous job!  They learned how to use their paintbrushes to create thin lines as well as thick ones.  Dry-brushing technique.  The #2 round brush is perfect for the vines surrounding the bottom of the pumpkins.

 We had some first timers and some seasoned painters. Everyone had a great time!

Happy Birthday with Paper Artsy stamps/masking

I was inspired by the current challenge at Paper Artsy-masking.  I've created this card using a different kind of masking. I brayed paint onto my gelli plate and this pushed the Paper Artsy flower stamps into the paint. Then I pulled the print. Wow!! The stamp pulled the paint off creating a negative space. I hightlighted the stamps with watercolor pencils. Did some additional stamping with Paper Artsy vine, then stamped The Happy Birthday sentiment from Stampin Up.  Added 3 die cut flowers on top with dimensional s to finish the card. I LOVE how it turned out!! I hope this inspires you!!!
