WOC #41 Creature Comforts

Happy Monday...wow where does the time go?!  This last week has been a longggg week!  Seeing how it is busy season (AKA Tax Season) at work I pretty much spend all of my time at the office, good thing I really love numbers besides being crafty! ;)  I hope this week goes by much faster (that means we are one week closer to the April 15th deadline....although this year it's April 17th thanks to the government)! LOL!  Also this past week my hubby and I have been busy preparing for the building of our new home.  We met with our architect and now I am even more exciting for our building adventure.....we have an awesome architect! I am so looking forward to the seeing the house plans that are in the works!  My dream home is well on it's way to becoming a reality!  YAY!

Today is another Wild Orchid Crafts Challenge Day!  Yippy! :)  WOW we were so happy to see all of the gorgeous entries during our past challenge!  Just a friendly reminder: In order to qualify for the prize you need to follow the WOCC Rules. Now onto this week's fun.....This week we would LOVE to see your creations featuring ANIMALS!
My card features the beautiful Designing Dreams from the Odds & Ends Sampler by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  This was the project that came from the sneak peek that I shared with you all -->here<--.  Papers are from Echo Park's For the Record Collection and Victoria Garden Collection.
Designing Dreams was colored with Copics and pastel pencils.  She was then cut out using a SB Labels 14.  Edges were inked with TH Mustard Seed Distress Ink.  Then edges were blinged out with a Want2Scrap Rhinestone Sticker.....however you can also use WOC Self Adhesive Rhinestones for any edge that you have.  Images was accented with Star Dust Stickles and Illuminate Smooch.

Copic Colors Used: Skin: E000, E00, E11, Hair: Y26, YR24, E25, E33, E53, Shirt: Y21, Y26, Y32, Pants: E71, E74, E77, E79, Kitten: W1, W3, W5, E41, E42, E43, Kitten's Collar: Y21, Y26, Y32, Flower: G28, YG11, YG25, YG67, R81, R83, R85, R89
Metal Decorative Corner Accents were coated with white paint.  I love how easy it is to coat these beauties with any color paint to have them match any creation that you make.
Wild Orchid Crafts arrangement consists of a 40mm Trellis Rose (airbrushed to match card color theme), 25mm Wild Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, Gypsophilas, 15mm Rose Leaves, Stamens, and a Decorative Crown Pin.  Flowers have been glitzed with Star Dust Stickles.

Spread your wings and fly.....

As promised, I have a SCACD Fairy card to share with you tonight!  This is Friendship Rose from the Fall Flora Fairies Set.
After I colored her I realized that I colored her almost exactly as when I made -->this card<-- with her!  I've made my shaped card using a Go Kreate die.  Papers are from the Memory Box Rhubarb Tart Collection (which is currently 20% off at SCACD).
Friendship Rose was colored with Copics and pastel pencils.  Her wings and hair bow were glitzed with Star Dust Stickles.  The dew drops on her dress were made with my Viva Decor Transparent Gloss Gel Pen...love the dimension one gets from using Viva Decor products!  This cutie was popped up onto a SB Labels Six that was embossed with the Craft Concepts Carved Rose embossing folder.  Then I used my SB Tags 2 to make the flourished frame.
Wild Orchid Crafts flower arrangement consists of: Rose from the Organza Rose Trim, 25mm Roses, 20mm Roses, Sweetheart Blossoms, Gyposphila, and Small sequin butterflies.
The Rose was colored with Copics and pastel pencils.  This gorgeous rose stamp comes along with Friendship Rose!  Two stamps for the price of one...gotta love that!  All of the fairies in the Fall and Spring Flora Fairy Stamp Sets come with a free flower stamp!
And one more angled view for dimension!  Now spread your wings and let your inner fairy fly......head over to the SCACD store to get your very own BRAND NEW Spring Flora Fairy Stamp Set and while you are there make sure you pick up a set of the Fall Flora Fairies too!  They are all so adorable and very versatile!

WOC #40 - Anything Goes

Welcome to the first Wild Orchid Challenge for 2012!  Since it's the beginning of the year and everyone is still recuperating from the holidays we thought we would start out with an easy challenge for you all....this week's challenge is ANYTHING GOES!  It doesn't get easier than that! :)  Make sure you read the Wild Orchid Challenge Rules -->HERE<-- so that your entry qualifies for the lovely prize!
Unfortunately this Christmas was sad for our friend's family.  Our friend lost his mother due to cancer on the early morning of Christmas.  This is the card that I made for him and his family.  Papers are from Kaisercraft Chanteuse.  MS punch border has been blinged with Self Adhesive Rhinestones in pink.  Top right corner was accented with a metal decorative corner.
Image and sentiment are from the Verve Forever in our Hearts collection.  I love the sentiments that this stamp set as.  Small Sequin butterflies were popped up with foam tape.  Image edges were glitzed with Star Dust Stickles.
Wild Orchid Craft flower arrangement consists of: Carnations, 15mm Roses, 10mm Rose, Sweetheart Blossoms, Gypsophilas, Stamens, and 20mm Leaves.
The inside of the card uses more of this beautiful Kaisercraft paper!  I love this flocked frame!  Sentiment was cut out using a SB Labels 22 and was airbrushed while still in the die.  Then I took the scroll from the SB Fleur de Lis Motifs set and created a beautiful frame for this sentiment.
I hope that this card let our friend know how much we are thinking of him during this difficult time!  His mom truly was an amazing person who is no longer suffering and is now in peace.

Make sure you head over to the Wild Orchid Craft Challenge Blog to see what the other amazing DT members have made!
