Hi friends! Hope you had a great weekend, it has been super cold here, think -16 degrees and such; yesterday we had wind gusts up to 30 mph with snow. Brrr!! And yes, we were out in these chilly temps multiple times - we're crazy. ;)
But today I found some time to create a little treat sack for my secret santa gift, the recipient LOVES pink...and it's even better when it's filled with treats, don't you agree?
I folded the bottom portion of the sack up and adhered with sticky tape along 3 sides, this created two small pockets - I LOVE making these! I used inspiration from ctd423 for my colors. The poinsettia was embossed with sparkle embossing powder on vellum and colored with Copics, the center of each layer is red feathering out to pink; the center is yellow, I added some yellow liquid pearls for a bit more dimension. The leaves were cut with MFT layered leaves dies from both vellum and Echo Park polka dot paper. I sponged the edges of the sack with Picked Raspberry.
Thanks for popping in; hope you have a great week!

Hi friends! Guess what? I found time this long weekend to stamp... JUST FOR FUN, goodness, that sure felt good!
I was thinking of Christmas ideas for my co-workers so I had asked several what their fave colors were AND what their colors were for their Christmas tree. One said their fave color was purple or blue - when I checked the new JUGS challenge, I knew immediately what I wanted to create. Just look at all that insane gorgeousness (photo below), seriously...jaw-dropping gorgeous IMHO!
I had already cut these silver circles using MFT's stitched circle dies so I set about making this card, nope - wasn't what I originally had in my head at all, but I still love how it turned out. I did some serious water coloring - you know, where you smoosh the colors on your craft mat and dip the images in. :D Only after embossing the images with Hero Arts sparkle embossing powder.
Can you see all that sparkle? Even better than a clear wink of stella pen (IMHO)!
I used a piece of Ranger water color paper for the background and added some whipped spackle through a Memory Box stencil; once dry I smooshed on more distress ink, mounted the water color paper and black/white graphic paper to a bit smaller base card so I could allow the silver circle to hang off the edge but still fit in an A2 envelope. I used Press 'n Seal to pick up the flowers once arranged, unfortunately when I was putting them back down (after applying glue), the Press 'n Seal touched the silver circle and left a little design element. HA, that's okay, it's homemade and that certainly proves it, yes?
Thanks for stopping by; hope you have a GREAT week!
