New Ooh La La challenge

Hi, everyone - starting today there is a new challenge up on the Ooh La La Creations blog. The theme is Signs of Autumn. We'd love for you to create an autumn themed project and link it up.

I just couldn't resist using this adorable little witch from the "Say it With Words" CD. I used the bookmark that is in the CD and layered it onto paper #4. Next I added a black cardstock layer. The card base is orange. The card was photographed on paper #3. I added some enamel leaves and an acorn that have been in my stash forever!

Check out the beautiful Autumn designs by my fellow team members - they are awesome! Thanks for stopping by.

Gecko Galz - samples & free digi image

Today I'm sharing my Gecko Galz projects for August.

First up are three cards I made using the fabulous Gecko hot air balloon images. The cards were quick and simple - I used a black card base for each and the same purple paper background. I added a balloon image and a Tim Holtz word ticket (or the word cut from a ticket). The balloons are from the Up, up and away sheets.

Next, I made a collage piece. I used the girl with wings image from the August kit called Curiosity Shop. I also used the moon icon. These were layered onto one of the Curiosity Shop papers. I added flowers, a bird cage, and a butterfly transparency from my stash.

Finally, I made a clown tag. The manila tag (from Ranger) was sprayed with inks. I sized the clown image in Photoshop, fussy cut and pop dotted him to the tag. I added a scalloped circle cut from the Trapeze paper (Life is a Circus paper set). I used a chipboard piece that says "this Rocks" in the center of the circle and added yellow enamel dots to the clown's shoes and hat. Some brightly colored fibers and an orange sticker that says "giggle" finish the tag.

Here is your free digi image from Gecko Galz - please enjoy!!

One for the Boys

The title of our new challenge at Ooh La La is "One for the Boys". My card is below. I used an image (called Fishin' & Relaxin') from the Boys to Men CD. The green checked paper is also from that CD, which is available at Ooh La La Creations for purchase. I stamped the fish and pop dotted them to the card. The word sticker is from Jillibean Soup.

Check out the fabulous creations by the rest of the design team. Please join us by creating and linking up your own card at Ooh La La Creations.

Ooh La La

Hi! Today I'm posting a card I made for the Ooh La La Creations blog. The pretty image caught my attention right away!

To make the card, I began with a light blue cardstock base. Next I added two darker blue mats of cardstock. The image I used is from the Shawn Jenkins collection. It's called "Nautical". Isn't it lovely?!

The layers are called Pyramid Decoupage, which I cut into the diamond shapes. The shapes get smaller as you build the image. The "Relax" button is from my stash.
