 Things with Wings
I recently have been purchasing new supplies and I used one of my favorites on this card.

This card uses a combination of embossing folder and die.
The die is a new "Stampin' Up" called "Dragonfly Dreams" 
The dragonfly was embossed clear and sprinkled with 
Ultra Fine glitter.
The embossed paper was sanded to bring out all the fine elements.

You can find Pearly Sparkles here.
Be sure to come by and enter the contest or just get some inspiration.

Challenge #87 at Ike's Art World

Anything Goes With an optional twist Angels and Demons

   This challenge runs from Apr25 - May 09
The "garden" twist could go with any flower bed or vegetable garden.
I chose to use Ike's "1920 lady" from her digi shop Ike's Art.
You'll find many images that can be used in this challenge.
For this image I used:
Angel Front and Back



         
A friend of mine (Ginny) told me about a YouTube video on creating with a digi on a candle.
I decided to try this "something different".  It seemed easy enough...until you got into making a 4 x 7 Pillar candle.
I would suggest you start with something smaller until you get the technique down.
Other than that it fun and easy and could even be decorated.
Someone will be getting this for Christmas!
Give it a try and I think you'll like it.

New Home Welcome



My daughter recently moved into a "new home" (meaning different)
It's in the Historical District and it was built in 1920.
It's a beautiful little home with archway room entries and a fireplace.
I'm sure they'll love making new memories there.
 

It just so happened that one of my magazines had an offer of "Hunkydory" side step cards.  
This worked out perfect for me to make her a "Welcoming" card,
It was also a surprise to the family.

Anything Goes Somewhere over the rainbow


Mar 14 - 28     

Anything Goes Somewhere over the rainbow

Ike's Challenges have become "Anything Goes" with a twist.  It's fun to fit the twist in.

In my inspiration I knew immediately what I wanted to do.  
I used "Godshill" with a rainbow.


 The latest trend seems to be using acetate in our cardmaking.  I thought this would make an interesting card an hopefully inspire you to try acetate on a card.  

Recipe:
Rainbow ink pad used on Tim Holtz watercolor paper.
I printed the "Godshill" image on to the acetate and Ta Da one pretty and quick card.

I can't wait to see your designs so be sure to join us in this challenge, please.

Thank you!

Pearly Spaarkles March Inspiration

A new month is starting so it's time to play a challenge with
"Pearly Sparkles"
This month's theme is flowers.  A variety of ideas!
I chose to use some beautiful cherry blossoms after a favorite flower discussion.  




I kept it very simple and easy to mail in case I decide on the perfect occasions.  
Please join in this challenge and show us your flower card.

Back in Ike's World

It's time for "Challenge #83"
This will run from Feb 28 - Mar 14
Anything goes with an optional "focal sentiment"

I once again use one of her beautiful "Butterflies"
We have flowers blooming here in Florida and it's feeling like Spring.


I decided to use my new Prisma pencils this time.   I've been waiting to give them a go since I bought them.
The tulips were embossed and fussy cut then colored.  I debated coloring the bakground and the trial one I did made that look less airy so I opted for just the tulips.  The butterfly was also colored with pencils.

We'd love to have you join us in this challenge.  Color your beautiful Ike's image and join us.

Please leave me some love so  know you visited.

Happy 13th Birthday!!

My one and only granddaughter turned 13 over the weekend!!
I wanted to create her something special and after much contemplation
I decided that a grown up "Dress Card" would be perfect.


I thought it would be fun to use the term "Teen Years" instead of 13.
It's a special time in a young lady's life.
I hope she enjoyed the card as much as I did making it for her.

Aud's Sentiments Challenge

Aud's Sentiments  Challenge #173
Challenge will run Feb 9-20
Theme: Valentines/Love Sentiment

I chose to create a design that just wanted to come out of my mind.
Out it came and this is the result


I used a Darice Embossing Folder for the background added my Red and White heart punch
The "ribbon" effect is created with a scrap of red paper and a Martha Stewart Punch out.
I've had the metal heart for well over 15 years so don't even think about asking where it came from...IDKS
The Happy Valentine Day stamp was one I got out of the JoAnn $1 bin + stamped in red and embossed.
I hope you like it and will come up with something simple yet elegant on your own.  This is merely an idea of what can happen when you open up that pandora's box.  Love to see yours.

Please leave me some love letting me know if you like my creations.  It's always wonderful to hear.
Til the next challenge:  ~AngeL Hugs
