Welcome my friends and new followers! Today I would like to share a card I made for our new challenge at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge blog. The Challenge is ANYTHING GOES!! I sure hope you enter our challenge to win a gift certificate to 7 Kids College Fund Store. There are a lot of new products coming in from CHA 2014.
My image is Kaydance by Elisabeth Bell for Whimsy Stamps
She was colored in Copics and I rubbed some distressed inks around her, stamped in versa mark a few pretty lines and then frantaged in Aged Ivory. I used the new Prima papers Princess!
Did you notice her frame,, boot,, and a lovely heart? Those are chipboards from Southern Ridge and I love how nice they are. I frantaged them too in Aged Aqua and Shabby pink. The heart natural.
I used WOC roses and some leaf dies to make my corner arrangements.
My sweet friend that gave me this metal post card, I love you is inscribed on it, I love it!
The top edges are Magnolia Doohickey envelope dies and some pleated tulle. I used the leaf dies but added a Memory Box Elegant Scrollwork die also.
Here she is up close
I hope you have time to peak in at the challenge over at 7 Kids College Fund Challenge Blog and see what my teammates made. It is so fun when my friends enter the challenge, good luck to you!
Items from the 7 Kids College Fund Store that I used on my card above
Now I want to share something else with you all.
My friend and 7 Kids teammate Karen Gauthier from Thoughts From The Girls blog makes amazing printers trays using Magnolia stamps. After I saw her Christmas one here on her blog last December I just fell in love with it. Karen said she would make me one and so I sent her the supplies and this is the one she made me in only 1 week!
She is very detail orientated so I want to show you close up photos of the sections.
look at the lovely umbrella, that is 2 dies she combined. Then a sugar and cream die to go with my spoon I sent her to use, see the background paper, how perfect it all goes!
In 2 corners are 3 separate Magnolia images from different collections.
More Magnolia images combined with other things to create the cutest scenes and so girly.
Look she is so sweet and the layers behind her are beautiful!
So then my naughty but nice friend Karen Gauthier sent me her Christmas Tray without telling me!! I was astonished and it is so beautiful and I will cherish this tray!! Thank you so much Karen!!
There is a ton of dimension in this tray, the colors are superb.
Here is a closer look at the resin pieces, dies and tiny tulle bows she added with Magnolia images.
Those florals are out like a cone, beautifully done!
So many elegant pieces and colors that are festive for the holiday.
Here are both of the trays on my shelf in my craft room together. I would love to display them in my living room but I am afraid my kids will pick at them and then they will be ruined. They are safe and sound on my shelves as are many of your artworks my friends!!
I am very grateful for my friendship with Karen as we work together beautifully. I also treasure you all and love to share gifts with you, I have everyone's gifts displayed throughout my craft room so I can enjoy them and remember how generous you all are!
Thank you for stopping by today, I sure hope you enjoyed the photos!
