Announcement time

*~*~*~*~*~*~*~* BREAKING NEWS *~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
I am once again adding a NEW MEMBER to my Design Team!!

I'd like to introduce Taylor Usry * Musings of an addict! she posted her first project today and i must say it is FABULOUS!!! the other girls will have something up later today also so be sure to check out Catherine and Christine too!!

and now MY project for the day:
i used the Sketch over on SCS for this one - it is a new item in the store - acetate boxes the size of A2 cards (1/4 fold) and big enough to fit 8 cards and envelopes - perfect for giving gift sets!

i pulled out an oldie but goody from the first Pez-A-Doodle release - Butterflies A-Swirl. i have been doing so many projects lately with coloring i thought i would do one for those who don't necessarily want to or like to color. i inked the stamp with various colors of memento inks using the little dew drops - the shape makes it so easy to do this. then i stamped it and wah lah! a colorful image just like that! next i took my versamarker and highlighted the swirls and parts of the butterflies and brushed those with perfect pearls - forever violet and patina green - such delish shimmer!!! a few dabs of flower soft glue - OMGOSH YES the flower soft glue makes a huge difference - and a sprinkling of the new fuschia mix from the floral bouquet boxed set plus a bit of green on the leaves. then finished off with some quick dots of lettuce dimensional pearls which i also used on the corners of the box. the patterned paper is Stampin Up and i inked the edges heavily with bamboo leaves memento ink and my foam blender.
the memento inks and just about everything else are on sale right now so it is a GREAT time to stock up on lots of colors!!!
HUGE HUGS and a big welcome to Taylor - i LOVE her work and really look forward to having her on the team!!


  1. Oh wow!! I LOVE this!! I see another order in my future!!

  2. oh this is just gooor-just! I love how you used the dimensional pearls to add little dots in between the 'trellis' like stuff! and oh so yummy flower soft! i like this it's okay you got distracted into making it - BEAUTIFUL!

  3. Totally gorgeous... I am so jealous of the amount of time you are able to put into things and the gorgeousness of the work that comes out of it all.
