Gecko Galz Blog Hop

Welcome Everyone to the 3rd Annual Gecko Galz Tricks and Treats Blog Hop.

First I have a tag, which uses the following Gecko Galz products: images from Pretty as a Postcard and Darling Dragonflies. They were both fussy cut and edges inked. The tag was painted, stenciled, stamped and edged in gold paint. The word stickers are by Splash of Color (from Hobby Lobby), small white doily from Martha Stewart and rhinestones from my stash.

I also made a card, using papers from the Star Crossed and Wild Roses sets. The flower wreath is from a die cut sheet (12 x 12), which was inked. The individual flowers were cut out and layered into a free form wreath shape. More flowers were added beneath an image from the Pretty as a Postcard sheet. I also added teal sequins.

Zappy Dots Blog Hop

This is Day 4 of the Polka Dot Pumpkin Blog Hop. Below this post I've linked my fellow DT members' blogs so you can see the great things they have created using Zappy Dots.

My project today is a polka dotted jack-o'-lantern. I got this flat wooden pumpkin at Hobby Lobby and painted it orange. Then I added some punched circles (which I inked & pop dotted). The yellow is cardstock. I inked the pumpkin with brown ink.

Last I added a burlap flower with a fall leaf Zappy Dot in the center. I love how colorful and fun Zappy Dots are!!!

First photo is a close up of the flower. Second is the jack-o'-lantern.

Hop on over to the blogs of my fellow Zappy Dots DT members - here are the links.

Polka Dot Pumpkin Blog Hop

Welcome to the first day of the Zappy Dots blog hop!! I've created two projects to share with you.

My first project is a 7 Gypsies shadowbox with a picture of my nephew Milo dressed as a gnome. The papers and leaves are from my stash. The Zappy Dots flair buttons are from the Vintage Halloween set. Love these!!

My second project is a bird titled, "Time for Fall". The bird is from Michael's. I painted the edges, covered it with Gecko Galz paper and then inked it with brown chalk ink. I deconstructed some Prima flowers (took out the centers and only used half the blue flower). I applied fall leaf Zappy Dots to the centers of the flowers. The clock is also from Gecko Galz. The bird has a small black rhinestone for an eye.

The photo below shows the flowers in more detail.
