WOC #33 - Stars that Sparkle

Another week has flown by....where does the time go?  It's so hard to believe that it's almost October already....brrrr it's already getting cold here in Wisconsin....I can say I definitely am not ready for winter yet....nor fall for that matter.  I got a little bit of crafty time in this weekend...between my CPA exam studying!  I also got some HUGE news to share....my mom and I now have our creations featured in TWO local retail locations!  I am so excited for this venture.  For those of you who are in Wisconsin (or are traveling through Wisconsin) you can find our creations at:

 Country Barn in Suring, WI; and
The Cracked Cup in Gillett, WI
  
Country Barn is a NEW retail store that has a huge variety of home decor and gift items!  I just got a bunch of birthday gifts purchased this weekend!!  The Cracked Cup is a local coffee shop that has a wide variety of handcrafted items for sale....so while you stop in to get your cup of coffee, tea, or cocoa you can stop and browse the amazing items for purchase!  I am so thankful that these two owners have decided to display our projects for sale, I'm hoping this turns out to be a very successful adventure!  

Now onto some crafty fun.....Today is another Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Day!  YAY...this challenge was sooooo much fun!  For this week's challenge we would LOVE to see your creations featuring STARS....and why not add some bling in there too, as stars love to twinkle!
For my creation this challenge I decided to make something altered.  I took a wooden plaque that I got from Walmart and altered it to display this cutie pie and amazing sentiment.  I got this lovely idea from my great friend, Kathy of Distressed Stamper, (her work is so gorgeous)!  Thank you so much Kathy for the inspiration!  The plaque was first painted with a mixture of pink and white acrylic paints.  Papers are from the Prima Sweet Fairy collection.
This features the cutie pie Wish Upon a Star from the Sample Edition #5 Collection by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  She is from an older collection, but I never got the chance to ink her up and knew she would be PERFECT for this challenge!  Of course she was colored with Copics, and accented with pastel pencils, cut out with a SB circle and popped up on a SB scalloped circle which was then accented with 3mm white self adhesive pearls and layered on top of cheese cloth.
I absolutely adore this sentiment, which I computer generated and cut out with nesties.  Flowers are beautiful WOC flowers and arrangement consists of:  35mm Trellis Rose25mm Wild RosesSweetheart Blossoms15mm RosesHip Rosebuds8mm semi-opened RosebudsGypsophilas5mm closed Rosebuds which all have been dazzled up with Diamond Stickles.  Corner has been accented with a decorative metal corner embellishment.
Stars were punched out with various punches, then filled in all of the star leaving a small edge with Glossy Accents, sprinkled on my 100 grit Silver German Glass Glitter, shook off the access and set aside to dry.  This glitter is absolutely amazing!! If you haven't gotten any yet, you really need to get some because it is absolutely GORGEOUS!  It's so sparkly in real life...this is by far the BEST glitter that I have ever used!!!  I can see using this A LOT especially for Holiday cards!
And an angled view to show you all the dimension of the plaque!  I hope you have enjoyed my sample for this week's challenge!  I can't wait to make another altered wooden plaque now :)

Head over to the WOC Challenge Blog to see all of the other girls AMAZING samples!  I also can't wait to see what you make for this challenge!

Little Miss. 3 Wishes was colored with Copics and accented with none other than my pastel pencils.  Her ribbon, pink trim on her dress, the fairy's wings, and the stars all got some beautiful star dust Stickles for bling.   Diamond Glaze was added to her eye.  Illuminate Smooch was used on the spots on the box for even more shimmer.  Sentiment is from the Emerald Faerie Garden collection.

WOC #32 - Christmasy Sketch

Happy Monday Friends!  Did you have a great weekend?  Did you order your very own Sylvia Zet for SCACD stamps?  Today I have another cutie from this fabulous collection!  Seeing how it's Monday it's also time for another Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge!  Woo-Hoo!  Today we have a fabulous sketch for you to play along with....the twist is that you need to make a Christmas card!  It's never to early to start your Christmas cards! :)
I promise I have used the sketch on my card....I turned the sketch and then went crazy creating with my WOC flowers! LOL!  I have used Winter Wonder who is a part of The Adventures of Loli & her Friends stamp set by Sylvia Zet for SCACD.  Isn't this image absolutely adorable for your Christmas cards?  I can't wait to make another card using this image with blues!  Papers are from Authentique Wonder Collection....I love the traditional-ness of this paper pad!
Little Miss Winter Wonder and her friend teddy were colored with Copics and shaded/highlighted with my pastel pencils.  I've used white flock for this cutie pie's hat trim, coat and boot trim, as well as on teddy's hat trim.  Diamond Glaze was used on the candle, teddy's eyes, and little wonder's eyes.  The snow falling from the sky as well as the ground snow was accented with my Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner.  I LOVE using these Glitter liners when you want dimension because it dries 3D instead of flat.  Image was then outlined with my Silver Stickles.
Of course you all know by now that I can't make a card without using Wild Orchid Crafts flowers! lol!  Flower arrangement consists of 30mm Wild Rose which has been accented with 100 grit Red German Glass Glitter, 25mm Poinsettias which have been accented with 100 grit Kelly Green German Glass Glitter, 15mm Roses (airbrushed) layered on top of Silver Padded Snowflakes, Silver Glitter Holly Berries, 8mm Semi-Opened Rosebuds, 5mm Closed Rosebuds, and Red and White Gypsophila.  I used Divine Twine and my Bow Easy to make the triple bow.  The MS punch edge is accented with 3mm self adhesive rhinestones and then layered on top of some gorgeous natural lace.
Upper flower arrangement consists of a 25mm Poinsettia again accented with 100 grit Red German Glass GlitterSilver Glitter Holly Berries5mm Closed Rosebud, 10mm Rose, and a Silver Snowflake Charm....WOC carries loads of these beautiful charms.  Make sure you check them out!

Now head over to the Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Blog to see the beautiful Christmas cards that the rest of DT has made!

Sylvia Zet for SCACD is HERE!!!!

Happy Friday Friends!  The day we've all been waiting for is FINALLY here!  Today you get to meet all of the Loli and Poppy stamps!  I hope you are enjoying the beautiful stamps that have been created by the newest artist at SCACD...Sylvia Zet has done an amazing job creating these exclusive cuties for SCACD!  If you've come from Danni's Blog then you are in the right spot, if not head over to Elaine's Blog to start the hop at the beginning...you don't want to miss any stops along the hop!

Today I have the honor of "re"-introducing you to Poppy, she was one of the two cutie pies who was previously sneak peeked by my fabulous DT sister Elaine over at the SCACD Blog.
I am totally in love with all of these new stamps!  I just can't wait to get home from work each day so I can color!!  The whimsical fun each of these images has is so adorable!  When I was creating this card I was feeling in a shabby chic kind of mood!  I've used crackle paint on the edges of the papers as well as the doilie and flowers for some added chic-ness!  Paper are from the gorgeous Authentique Uncommon Collection.  Corner resin pieces are from Melissa Francis.
Poppy has been colored with Copics and then I used my pastel pencils to shade.  Poppy's wings have been sparklized with Star Dust Stickles.  Her headband and shirt were treated with Illuminate Smooch.  Her eyes were given a coat of Diamond Glaze for the real-ness factor.  The entire image was then lined with my Viva Decor Hologram Glitter Liner.  The ladybug border was made with my MS punch and accented with some rhinestones....can you tell I am in love with bling?! LOL!  Poppy likes bling too....she told me so!!!!
 Here you can see the crackle paint on the flowers.  Dark pink flowers with pearl center are Delightful Day Prima flowers! I love these tulle like flowers....they are so fun and gorgeous all in one! The remaining flowers are from WOC.
 Here you can see the Doilie and paper that has been accented with my crackle paint.
And one more angle shot...hopefully you can see all the sparkle, shine, and bling on my Poppy image from here!

Now head to the SCACD store to get your very own Loli and Poppy stamp sets!  Loli has her own stamp set and Poppy has her own stamp set.  Each set comes with a FREE stamp!  If you purchase both sets that means you get TWO FREE stamps....how great is that!!!  For our European friends you can get your exclusive SCACD stamps at Quixotic Paperie!

Now head on over to the ultra talented Crystal's Blog, I know she has a beauty to share with you!  Enjoy the rest of the hop and Happy Shopping!
