EYE CANDY!!

OK so I have been BUSY creating and haven't been blogging! OOPS!! Sorry! So here are my latest creations for your viewing pleasure! : )

First up its ALL about MOM this week at Paper Popsicles! I worked with the super cute High Heel Shaped card that you can get right here. The first thing I thought when I saw this shoe was Carrie Bradshaw and Sex in The City, so I decided it needed to look super cool and blingy! I to make the shoe out of glitter paper, so I grabbed some Die Cuts With A View Glitter paper and traced the shoe onto it and cut it out. (I will say DCWV glitter paper is nice as the glitter is sealed and is not messy, but I do prefer the blingy shine of the DoodleBug sugarcoated paper better) I then made the heel of the shoe out of some DoodleBug Flocked black paper and glued that onto the shoe. At this point the shoe seemed to be missing something so I decided to sand the edges of the shoe and reveal the white core of the glitter paper. (TIP do this step BEFORE adding the flocked heel! I had to clean all the dust off the heel) Next I used a SEI gem and Making Memories glitter letters to add the sentiment.
Just think of all the fun cards you can create with this shape! I am thinking of making cards for my girlfriends as an invite to go see the new Sex and the City movie!
Next up is the digi image I got to work with -this cute mom and her "babies"! This image can be purchased right here! The image is colored with Copic markers, and I used Cordinations cardstock, Pink Paislee pattern paper, and I used my Martha Stewart loopy loop border punch. The ribbon is Making Memories with a ribbon charm from Maya Road. The sentiment is written with DoodleBug rub-ons, and both the sentiment and image are raised with Helmar zap dots.
Next up is a layout I made for the BoBunny sketch last week. I forgot to upload in time for the contest, but here is my layout. I used the new BoBunny Paradise line and created this from one of the ads they had posted to create from. Everything is BoBunny.
And YES I even made my own "flower" with BoBunny Double Dot ribbon! I created the flower and then for the center I decided to use a sea shell I cut from the BoBunny paper. This was SO quick and easy to make! I am sure you will be seeing more of these! ; )This is a layout I created for the My Mind's Eye challenge, and well I forgot one part of the challenge and therefore couldn't enter it! : ( Oh well! But I had fun creating it, and that is one more layout done! LOL! It didn't photograph well, but on the Basic Grey chipboard letters(which I used alcohol inks to color) I used a stamp with the same circles as the pattern paper and Versamarked the image onto the letters to bring the circles to the letters as well. I used My Mind's Eye paper and journaling card, Basic Grey chipboard letters, Ranger lettuce alcohol ink, Making Memories sticker letters and a Martha Stewart border punch.
With Mother's Day fast approaching I decided to get started on some more cards to give to the "moms"! I was excited to play with the new Basic Grey Kioshi paper so I made this card with the paper as well as a Basic Grey Opaline flower embellishment. I used Cordinations cardstock, My Mind's Eye ink, Kaiser pearls and Sheer Creations ribbon to finish off this card.
You know you have gotten into a creating groove when you lay in bed at night and think of ways you could have improved what you did! That's what happened to me last night! LOL! I was laying bed and thought of some more things I want to add to this card, so I am sure you will be seeing a similar version of this card with modifications! LOL!
And for my last creation today another card! I found these gorgeous Prima flowers and knew I wanted to make a card with them, then as I was walking around the LSS looking for paper to use with them I happened to look down and see them against this piece of the Basic Grey Kioshi and found my paper! LOVE when that happens! LOL! So I used Basic Grey paper, Cordinations cardstock, Prima flowers, My Mind's Eye ink (I must say that the 2 color wheels I have of this ink is FABULOUS and I ALWAYS find the color I need!) Basic Grey Opaline embellishments (I cut the green swirls off of flowers) and Kaiser pearls.I decided that the flowers could use a little something, so I grabbed my good old Stickles and added a little bit of Stickles on the edges of some of the flower petals. I just love the little extra shine to grab your eyes! (Sorry this picture is kind of blurry I just realized I didn't change the setting on the camera! Maybe if the sun comes out I can retake this one!)

So there you have my recent eye candy! : ) I hope you enjoyed it!

Wow, rockstar, look at you go! Love the bling on the shoe and everything else is gorgeous. I lay in bed at night thinking of new creations too. It makes great art, but lack of sleep can be rough.
