Birthday Mixed Media Card

Hi All,

It's been awhile since I have been passionate about making cards.  I have only been able to get my Christmas cards completed and have been MIA as far as birthdays and any other holidays.  Something happened over the holiday break and I can't find enough time in the day to make cards again.  I am so excited.  My new passion, #MixedMedia cards.  I was watching a YouTube video from #MaremiSmallArt which peaked my interest again.  Thanks Marta for re-creating my interest in Mixed media and card making.


Products used in creating this card:
Hero Arts Stamp and cut Happy set:

Mini white mulberry flowers:

Metal frame: this was in my stash, here is a nice option:

Distressing tool:

Seed Beads: 

 Dylusions Shimmer spray:

Card base:

Hope you are inspired by my card creations.  Enjoy the inspirations. 
Thanks for stopping by.

Green with Envy

Hi all,
Just stopping by to post what transpired from the bead soup I posted in the last post.

I just did a "Green With Envy" as I called it bracelet. 

Lots of pretty green bling with some silver thrown in.  Love the little silver tone heart toggle clasp.  What do you think?

Until next time...

Hi All,
Just playing around with some of my patterned paper that I had lying around....

Came across this super cute Disney Winnie the Pooh themed paper.  Really simple card just cutting out three of the Tigger squares and finding coordinating card stock and ribbon  Easy Peasy...

For the sentiment, I used the computer and printed out my own.  Mounted it with coordinated card stock.  I do a lot of my own sentiments that way.  That way I can personalize the cards with what I really want them to say.

Here is a link to the exact paper I used:

These papers like this would work well for other Disney character themes:

Any kind of themed paper like this would work well in this type of card.  It makes it really easy if you are in a bind and need one yesterday....
Try it out, keep some on hand for those days when you need a card.

New and fun little bracelet

Hi All,

It is really fun when you sit down to create and have nothing in mind other than a bracelet and you come up with a pretty little gem like this...

This gem was made with 10mm blue aventurine glass beads and copper flower spacer beads and findings.  Very creamy aventurine beads with a pretty shine on the faceted beads.  Graced with the antique copper findings.  One of my favorites so far.

You can find it listed here on ETSY.

The bracelet would go perfectly with these items:

Until next time....

A few creations from the bead soup listed prior...

 Hi All,
I finally made it back to post a few of the creations that came out of the bead soup that I posted in the last post.  You can find the post Here.   All earrings take on a summer flair and would be perfect for showing off your favorite tank tops or summer dress.  

 The first pair are bright and unique.  Pretty little yellow round rondelle beads followed up with a nay blue pearl, hung from silver tone ear wires.  Great color combination.

 Another pretty summer yellow pair of earrings.  Pale yellow acrylic beads (light weight) on gold tone ear wires.  Simple, yet an elegant flair to the perfect outfit. 

 These are just cute, what else can I say?  Cute little cherry charms hung from gold tone ear wires.  Perfect for that summer barbecue.  Imagine these cuties with a cute pair of jeans or jean shorts

Last but not least, bright hot pink saucer rondelle beads with a pale pink pearl hung for the dangle.  Elegant and graceful.  Hung from silver tone wires.

Gotta love fashion and what a little pair of earrings can do to inspire a pop of color in your wardrobe and help in putting together the perfect outfit for your summer get together. 

I will add some more pictures from the bead soup posted on the 4th of July of what was created.  Hope you enjoyed this display.  Until next time.
