A few more cards from Extravaganza!

Here are the cards that I created for Extravaganza using the paper pack Dreamin'.  This is such a fun and versatile paper pack!!  SO sad that it has taken me 2 months to get these posted.......OH well, better late than NEVER!   I will try to give a brief description of each card below it.  My brain is a bit foggy today as I am trying to get ready to go out of town TOMORROW!  SO, if for some reason I cannot remember the name of a stamp set......I will come back and correct it once I know it!  

This first card uses a CTMH Clear Circle Card.  The cute little owl is from Hot Diggity and has always been one of my FAVORITES!!  I stamped him 2 times: Once in Chocolate and once in Goldrush.  I cut out the top half of the owl in Goldrush, added Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter then pop dotted it to the chocolate image.

This BLING on this card is using a button from the Bling Assortment.  To color the button I took Liquid Glass and Goldrush Reinker and mixed them together on a non porous surface then dipped (or you can brush the mixture on) the button in the mixture and let it dry.  It is hard to tell from this pic......but I spritzed a glimmer mist over the flowers using Rubbing Alcohol and Pearl Paint.

This SUPER CUTE bear comes from Beary Busy.  I just LOVE this guy!!  The sparkle on this card is hard to see, but you can click on the photo to make it larger and see it better.  I used Black Staz-On and VersaMark with Clear Detail Embossing Powder to stamp the outlined image.  I then used my CTMH Watercolor Pencils and Blending Pen to color him in.  To give it a finishing touch, I used Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter in the center of each flower.  

This is a 3x3 card.  The center BLING is from the Designer Rhinestone Brads collection.  I used Liquid Glass and Crystal Blue Reinker to color the Rhinestone Brad.  The flower was spritzed with Pearl Paint/rubbing alcohol for an extra bit of sparkle.

Another 3x3 card.  The flowers were stamped in Goldrush first, then rolled in Chocolate ink for a two-tone look then spritzed with the Glimmer Mist solution mentioned above.  The center of the flowers are Mocha Opaques, which are a MUST have in ANY embellishment collection!  The ribbon bow is from the Honey Mini Medley Collection.

And yet 1 more 3x3 card using blue sparkles from the Blue/Green Sparkles package.  Sparkles are such a fun and inexpensive embellishment to use on cards, scrapbook pages and paper projects.  I swear I am always adding them to each order that I place for fear I will run out!  The ribbon is from the Honey Mini Medley Collection.

I think this is the last 3x3 card in this group!  The butterfly is from the Flutter Paper Shapes and was spritzed with the Glimmer Mist mentioned earlier.  The body of the butterfly is made up of Opaques from the Mocha Opaques Gems.  

The flowers are from the stamp set Unscripted.  Again, the Bling was made by mixing Liquid Glass and Goldrush Ink then dipping the bling buttons in the mixture.  The ribbon is a bulk Chocolate Stripe ribbon that is a bit over 1 inch wide.  I used the brand new ruler from CTMH to create the zig zag stitching along the paper edges.  

This card and the one above and below are all 6x6 cards.  The resin flowers and hanging gem are from the Heirloom Assortment.  I used liquid glass in the center of each flower to adhere a Mocha Opaque Gem.  Stamp set used is Treasure Life and the ribbon is from the Colonial White Ribbon Collection.  I used an edge distresser to the edges of the Colonial White CS to add a bit more dimension and distressing.

Last but NOT least.....In the center of each flower I used a Ribbon Slide from the Foundry Metal Accessories, Bling Buttons and White Hemp.  Each of the flowers was dyed using Goldrush Reinker and Rubbing Alcohol.  The blue flowers that are stamped under the sentiment have liquid glass and prisma glitter added to the center of each one.  You can enlarge the photo to see them up close!  

OK  I need to run.....Hope that I have been able to inspire you to add a bit more BLING to your cards, pages and paper projects!  

Thanks SO much for stopping by!!  

I will have more to share next week!!

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!

I have once again let this blog go WAY TOO long without a post!  I really have NO good excuses that I can use.....SO I am just going to share a few more things that I created back in July for my Extravaganza Class that I taught.  Each of these cards were created using the NEW paper kit Typeset from the Autumn/Winter Idea Book.

First card was created using the stamp set Love Birds.  The Juniper Ribbon is from the Designer Ribbon Green Collection and the Pewter Buckle if from the Foundry Ribbon Slides.

The 2nd card uses the stamp set A Twinkle along with Licorice Opaques and ribbon from the Black Mini Medley collection.  The sparkle on the star was made by using Liquid Glass and Prisma Glitter over the cut out part of the star.

This card was created using the September Stamp of the Month Limited Edition.  The C is from the Dimensional Elements Monograms.  Sparkles and Black Ribbon from the Mini Medley collection finish off the card.  Simple, but sweet.

The base to this circle card is available in the Autumn/Winter Idea book to make creating Circle cards SO much easier!  The Butterfly is from the Flutter Just Blooms and the antennae are pearl stick pins that are included in the Bling Collection.  The pearls in the butterfly are the Pearl Opaques AND Ribbon slide is from the Pewter Mini Medley collection.

Last but not least.....Stamp set used for this card is Blue Ribbon.  All embellishments have been mentioned above!

Thanks SO much for stopping by today!!  I will TRY my hardest to NOT let 2 months go by without posting again!  I still have a few more cards and projects just waiting for you to see......

Hope these cards have inspired you to purchase the paper pack Typeset from my website OR from YOUR favorite CTMH consultant!!  

Happy Scrapping and Stamping!
