JessicaLynnOriginal New Stamp Releases!

Hello, Everyone! Welcome to another Brand New Stamp Release, You're Never Too Old to Dream, by JessicaLynnOriginal! These are so adorable! I loved the movie Tangled...in fact, even my husband did! So when Jessica came out with this new acrylic stamp release, I thought...oh my goodness! This is going to be fun! (Be sure to read to the end...there's a special offer!)

For my 1st project, I went with making a tag. I layered the black foundational tag with 2 small printed tags, using the colors of her dress. I then put a lavender "bling" ribbon in a diagonal manner, added pearl drops, and all the characters. I stamped the hearts on last, because I wanted to put them around the lanterns.
I made a 2nd Tag with this set also. Here it is: 
So with this project, I used 2 tags...a small one and a large one. These tags are from a company called Whisker Graphics. I used my Tim Holtz ink oxides to color both tags: Bone China, Pickled Raspberry, and a little bit of Walnut Stain. A quick and easy way to get a great background!

Now let me share with you a card I made using her 2nd New Stamp Release, Miracles Take Time. 

This card was super fun to do! Although it's more of a CAS, it still has some "style" to it, with the background embossing and stitching. And I adore those mice!! They are so cute! 

Now the 2nd card from this set:
This card came out so much better than I thought it would! The carriage is made from ovals...a die cut, actually. The paper was strong enough that it just simply embossed the leaf pattern of the die, but I was able to take the oval out. I also used the leaves from the die onto the side of the carriage. Circles were made for the wheels, and I hand cut the stem and the leaf. The couple was colored in with some Prismacolors, and some colored markers, as well as the mice. I added the sentiment in, and a flower on top of the oval "window".

NOW FOR THE SPECIAL: Anyone who buys both sets of these steps, will be offered this FREE DIGITAL over the weekend!

Prize: 3 Digital Images

I decided to make a Tag using the Yarn Lover Rose image.  Here it is:
Isn't she a cutie?? So for my dies, I used my Silhouette to cut out the tag, and my Big Shot to cut out the doily, the 2 mats behind the doily, and the little branches. I used colored markers to color my image in. 

She was fairly simple to do, but I love the look of the tag! I sure hope that you will join us in our challenges this week! And thanks for stopping by!

ScrapbookingwithM.E. Boutique Mini-Album Swap!

Hello, crafty world! I want to share with you today an album I made for a Swap in the ScrapbookingwithM.E. Members page Tag Mini-Album Swap! It was so much fun to do! While I won't go into the details of how I made it....I will say that I used the Silhouette Portrait to do most of the cutting, including the tags. I have put it in my Facebook Projects Page, Crafts by Jeanie. Please check out this page, as I have several items in there of different projects I have made.

Now here are glimpses of the album:




I also made some pins for my swappie, and a few other things.

Outlawz Color Challenge Nov 21, 2017

Hello, crafty world! Today I want to share with you this week's Color Challenge with The Outlawz. And this week's amazing Sponsor is:
Prize: $12 Gift Certificate
So for this week's Photo Inspiration...picked by none other than yours truly...is the Color Orange with your pick of 2 other colors, and the Twist of Thanksgiving or a Thankful card. Here is the Photo Inspiration:
Aren't the colors beautiful in this? So I decided to use the pumpkins and leaves as my inspiration. I used a digital made by JessicaLynnOriginal. It was a free digital Jessica had on her Facebook page. I had downloaded and almost forgotten about it. Then with the photo inspiration, I thought this would be perfect! 

I colored the pumpkin with my markers, but then came in and did some shading with my colored pencils. I added the leaf appliques that were made by KPKre8tions.   I made the base of the card in green, then the mounted piece in yellows and oranges. I then added all the elements of the card and added a sentiment.

I hope you join in on this week's challenge! And be sure to check out the Design Teams cards, too!

Thanks for stopping by!

Createful Hearts Digis & Designs - Challenge #6

Hello, fellow crafters! Today I want to share with you that Createful Hearts Digis & Designs has begun a new Anything Goes challenge today! So that means I want to share with you what I did for this project, using one of Mary's images (of course!).

I went with one of Mary's newer images, Cynthia 1920 Chic. I'm telling ya, this Flapper Girl is so pretty! One of my faves! Now let me show you what I did with her:
Of course, the first thing I did was to print and cut her out with my Silhouette. Then I decided on what colors I wanted her to be in, using my Prismacolors. Then I used different colors of Stickles to put "dimension" on the beads in her cap. Once finished with her, I cut out another piece for a "frame" around her, and mounted that on top of a black card base. I added some wedding applique from the Facebook Group, Lighthouse stop n' shop.  There's a ton of lace in there, for very reasonable prices! 

After that was done, I simply added a sentiment and she was finished! I hope you like her!

Thanks for stopping by!

Shabby Chic Christmas Card

Hello, everyone! I wanted to drop in today and share a Christmas card with you. I love Shabby Chic, so when I saw a challenge posted in a Facebook group, I decided I'd go for it. But I wanted this one to be a Christmas card, as I just bought this gorgeous paper and die cut from an online store called Crafty City. I love this new designer cardstock made by Prima. This one is the Sweet Christmas paper pad. Here is my card:
I wish the glitter on the poinsettia would show up better, because it sure is pretty! First, I made the poinsettia following the YouTube channel of Archana Joshi, tutorial LINK HERE. I then took some white as a base for the card, making it an A2 card. I cut out some paper from the pad, and distress the edges of it, then mounted it onto the white. I then cut out the girl image and mounted her on top of the 2nd layer. I used my Big Shot to cut out the blue and pink branches you see up there (also from Crafty City.  I added snowflakes, pearls, a pearl trim, and a pink rose trim to the card. Lastly, I added a white rose to the bottom right of the card (what's Shabby Chic without at least one rose, right??). The rose was also from Crafty City.

I entered this card into the Facebook Page Play Creative. You do have to join the group to participate. I have also entered it into The Merry Christmas Challenge Blog, #42, Anything Goes + Christmas - Twist: Add Snow. I have snowflakes. 

Thank you so much for stopping by!
