Things with Wings

It's Monday and time for a new theme at Make My Monday! This week we are hoping you will join us with a project that has wings. My winged creature is the bee.

My tag was cut from a piece of watercolor paper that I covered with gelatos. The image of the Spring lady is a Character Construction stamp by Catherine Moore. She was colored with chalks and cut with the matching CC die. I then stamped two more bees onto the tag. Don't you love her beeskep hat!?

Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful week!!

Tea or Coffee

Our theme this week at Make My Monday is Tea or Coffee. The theme was picked by me. I love coffee - but ended up making two tea projects!

First is an Alice in Wonderland tea party tag. I used Graphic 45 paper for the background of a large Ranger manila tag. All the other embellishments and the image are from my stash.

My second project is a card. The background paper is from Basic Grey and the teacups are a new Tim Holtz die. I just love these teacups!!

We hope you will join us at Make My Monday and link up your tea or coffee project. Thanks for stopping by! Now I'm off to get a cup of coffee!

It's Monday.....

Make My Monday, that is! And our theme this week is Leaves or Trees. Here is my take on the theme.

I used an old piece of BoBunny paper to cover a tag. I inked the edges with brown chalk ink and fussy cut the tree from paper by Catherine Moore. Next, I adhered the tree to the tag and added these cute animal stickers and flowers. Then I glued on the wood veneer piece and my tag was complete!

Please join us at Make My Monday - we'd love to have you link up your project! Also, check out the beautiful work by my fellow dt members.

Moxxie May Blog Hop - New Spring Lines

Hey! It's May and a beautiful time of year to share with you our 2015 Spring Releases! Make sure you read to the bottom to find out how to WIN one of these fantastic NEW lines!!


I used the new All Star Baseball line for a scrapbook page I made. This new Moxxie line is perfect for both baseball and patriotic projects! The b sides of the baseball papers are red, white and blue with stripes and stars.

The page I made shows Rocco (my great-nephew) and his Dad at a Colorado Rockies baseball game. Since the photo was taken at a baseball stadium, there were lots of people in the picture that I didn't want on my page. To eliminate the extra people, I cut around Rocco's dad on one side and placed the large baseball sticker above Rocco's cap.

I began with a black cardstock base, a layer of red cardstock and the b side of Home Run. I then added a piece from the b side of All Star Cutouts. I added the large baseball, word stickers and the baseball mitt (which I fussy cut) from the sticker sheet. The red "All Star" strip is from the cutouts sheet. Lastly, I glued on a wooden hashtag veneer from my stash.

Vintage

Fellow design team member Fliss has chosen a wonderful theme for this week at Make My Monday! It's Vintage week and we hope you will join us with a project of your own. You can link your Vintage piece up here.

For my Vintage collage, I dug around in my stash and pulled out items that I've had forever! I began with the reproduction manila paper and layered a transparency on top. Next, I added a cabinet card woman, the pen, and the Special Event ticket. I chalked the woman's cheeks and hair to give her some color. Finally, I mounted the collage onto blue and black cardstock.

Thanks for stopping by! The design team has done lovely samples - please check them out at Make My Monday.

Away with the Fairies

Hi, Joan here with my tag for this week's theme at Tag Tuesday. I tried this and tried that - not happy with the results - until I spied this mushroom ephemera piece in a drawer. I cut the piece to tag size, inked the edges with brown chalk ink and punched a hole at the top.


I know that fairies like to dance in the moonlight inside a ring of mushrooms and so I had my tag's background!

I fussy cut the violet fairy image (from Gecko Galz) and pop dotted it to a large white flower. A simple tag, but I'm happy with the result.

Thanks for stopping by!

Earth Day

The theme this week at Make My Monday is "Earth Day".

To make my card, I began with a dark green cardstock base. Next, I added a piece of sprayed scrap paper. The main piece is packaging - I save everything! I stamped on the piece with a Tim Holtz stamp. The edges of the papers were inked with brown chalk ink. The bee and flower stickers have been in my stash forever. The "Hello Sunshine" banner is from Jillibean Soup.

We'd love to have you join us with a nature related project or one that is about environmental awareness. Check out the great samples by the design team and then use the linky at the bottom of the post to add your project.
