A Hanukkah Card with A Jillian Vance Design~

 Hi!
I'm guest designing for A Jillian Vance Design for the
month of December.  I'm creating with the Classic Candle
 Die.
  This is a mixed media card with a twist.


I have a tutorial on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog.
It is a step by step, so easy to follow.  The Classic Candle
Die
comes with lots of cute embellishments.  I cut the end
off the candle and made it a package. 


The card background is created with the Diamond Plate Stencil
 and distress oxide inks.  The sentiment is from the Light of
Christmas Stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you take a look
at the project on the A Jillian Vance Design Blog.
All adhesive used is by Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L.

Three Tags using You Matter by Darkroom Door~

Hi!
I have three tags to share using the NEW You Matter
Sentiment stamp by Darkroom Door.  It is lovely!!
You need this. The words are so perfect!!! 


I love these so much and enjoyed adding them to 
my projects!!!


I created a mixed media background for each ***pink tag***.  Yes, pink!!!
I'm an outside the box thinker here!!  Actually, it was what I had on hand.
I used Distress Oxide inks and the Sm. Brick Wall stencil and then
stamped randomly, using the Number Medley set and the NEW Mini Marks
 set.  The Sketchy Stars, Butterfly, Robin and Sitting Cat were
stamped with Archival black ink on white cardstock and trimmed out.
They are attached to the tag front with 3D Foam Adhesive Squares.
The sentiments are from the NEW You Matter Sentiments, embossed and
added to the center of the focal images.  Twine and material strips are added
to the tag hole. All adhesive is by Scrapbook Adhesive by 3L.
So cute and will look great on a package or homemade goody!!

Chickadee with Blue Knight Rubber Stamps~

Hi!
For the month of December the DT over at Blue Knight Rubber
 Stamps
will be sharing cards with a Winter Theme.  I'm
working with Chickadee.  I gave the sky a winter look using
Panpastels.


The background for the card is the Dictionary Page
 background stamp.  It is a great stamp!!  The moon is
put in with a stencil and then erased out.  Easy to do and a
great look.  Highlights are added using a paint brush
and white acrylic paint.


The sentiment is embossed, with white embossing powder, and
adhered to the front of the card,  The sentiment is from the
 One Line Sentiments/blessings.

Sunflowers by Darkroom Door~ An Art Journal Page.

Hi!
I'm showcasing my last project from the NEW RELEASE
by Darkroom Door.  This set is called Sunflowers!
So pretty!!  Great for cards too.



These are big images and that makes them perfect for an art 
journal page. Let me show you~

The background is created with watered down Distress Oxide inks.
The stencil is added next for the brick wall. I stamped the Sunflowers
in random spots doing one big one and four smaller ones.  I
stamped a large and small Sunflower and colored them with Distress
Oxide inks and then trimmed out.  Those were placed over two of
the stamped Sunflowers adding dimension to the page. 


The NEW Mini Marks are added along with numbers from
 the Number Medley set.  The Elegant Ladies Collage Sheets
were added (just pieces) in random spots.  The sentiment is from
the Sunflower set and is embossed on black cardstock and
added to the journal page.  The last thing I did was speckle the
page with white acrylic paint (using an old toothbrush). 
I just realized the four products that I got to work with go
so well together.  That is great designing Rachel!!!
