~* Let It Snow! Christmas Card *~

Aloha!
I made this card last nite.  I used the super duper adorable "Eris Catching Snowflakes" image from Little Blue Button Stamps.  I just had to get her!  She reminds me of one of the gorjuss girls :).  I colored her up with my Copic markers and then I added Frosted Lace Stickles to the white parts of her clothing.  I also glossy accented her crown.  I used papers from the Everybody Loves Christmas by Bella Road - Echo Park Paper Company.  I also used some of the stickers from the collection.  The wood letters are from a kiddie craft kit.  All the trims (except the mini pom pom trim) and the candy gems are from The Piece by Piece.  I added a halfback pearl from my stash.  
I am entering this card in the Little Blue Button Stamps Monthly challenge No11 Nov.10th-Dec.8th Christmas is here!  The challenge is to make a card or any project you like Christmas inspired , you have to use at least one image stamp (it doesn't have to be with LBBS stamp).
Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful weekend!
*hugs* and Much aloha,

~* Prima Delight Afternoon Tea Card as Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet *~

Aloha!
Sharing another project that I created as a Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I started off with a corrugated card base.  I used the papers from the Prima Delight collection by Jodie Lee.  The edges are distresed with my fingernail.  The image is The Greeting Farm's Hatter Bean that I colored up with my Copic markers.  I added Stickles to her as well as atyouSpica pen. 
I used a bunch of the yummy trims from My Paper Passion on Zibbet including the natural crochet lace on the top, the rose trim, the box pleated trim with satin peach trim in the center, the mini white halfback pearls, the natural crochet trim that I tied into bows on the top lefthand corner and the bottom righthand corner, the dark pink halfback pearls on the bottom, and the pink gingham eyelet lace on the bottom.  I also made that flower in the upper lefthand corner using the box pleated trim and two other laces that I cut into the circular shape flowing the flower design on them.  
I also embellished the card with Stickles, pearls, flowers, a button, mini pompom trim, and Webster's Pages heart trim.
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful day :)!

~* Shabby Chic Altered Walmart Ornament as Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet *~

Aloha!
Sharing an altered Walmart glass ornament in the shabby chic style.  This project is a Design Team project as the Guest Designer of My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  It was super quick and easy to make.  I just added the gorgeous crochet trim and mint green braid trim from My Paper Passion at the center of the ornament.  I added a rosette trim from my stash over the seam.  I added baby Prima roses around the top of the ornament, knotted some trinket pearls and let it dangle down, and also tied a bow with some yummy crochet trim from My Paper Passion.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day :)!

~* Shabby Altered Glass Bottle as Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet *~

Aloha!
Sharing an altered glass bottle that I created as a Guest Designer for My Paper Passion on Zibbet.  I layered on several of the gorgeous trims that she sent over for with my Guest Design Team package.  I also used the metal heart pendant that she sent over and I added a Webster's Pages bunny cameo onto it.  I tied the metal heart pendant with some Target Dollar Bin white twine that had gold accents.  I also tied two baubles from her store around the neck of the bottle.  I decorated the cork of the bottle with some flowers and the tiny white halfback pearls from her store.  I added the delicate crochet trim and dark pink halfback pearls around the neck of the bottle.  I also tied burlap twine around the bottle and some trinket pearls.

Have a great day :)!

~* Shabby Chic Afternoon Tea "Thanks" Card *~

Aloha Sweet Friends!
This project is for Graphic 45's November Challenge - Thank You Cards.  I made a shabby chic afternoon tea card using Graphic 45's A Ladies Diary.  I started off with a Recollections corrugated cardboard card base.  I added the designer papers, distressed the edges with my fingernail and with gesso.  I curled the corner of the paper.  I also did something different this time.  I colored up the teapot and teacup image with my Copics and then added Crackle Accents to the images.  At first, I thought I ruined the paper, but I like how it came out.  I made a banner with the images from the collection and stamped "thanks" using Studio G stamps.  
I added bits of laces and trinket pearls that I tied in knots and beautiful flowers and a stickpin I made.  
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a great day :)!
*hugs* and Much aloha,
