Verve card. Galatians 6:9

Hey there everyone. 

I have another fabulous card for you for Verve Stamps. 

I used the Pink Paislee Hope Chest paper collection. It is gorgeous. The card is standard measurements. I used some Vintage photo distress ink around the edges of all the paper and elements. There is alot of layers in this card....
I used some of the paper goods that go with the collection too. I used a Leaky Shed chipboard circle that I painted with some gesso. I also used some gorgeous trim from Websters Pages and some satin ribbon I had in my stash. I tied a bow with some seam binding and hid it under the Manor House Creations flower and the Kaisercraft chipboard leaf. I also cut in half a doily that I layered all the paper and other goodies on. 
I used vintage photo distress ink to stamp my sentiment which is the Galatians 6:9 stamp. 

Here is another photo. 

Here is a list of products I used. 
  • Pink Paislee Hope Chest 6x6 pad.
  • Verve Stamps Galatians 6:9

Lindy's Stamp Gang Eggstreme contest entry.

Hello everyone. 

I am so excited to share with you my entry for the LSG Eggstreme contest.

You can see the video tutorial here.

I had a vision but once I started creating I was so stumped. I almost threw out the egg. But I decided to go a little darker then I wanted but I love how it turned out. 

. I got the egg at the craft store. It is huge. I knew I wanted it to be big so I can display it for easter. For the egg I painted it with gesso and then used a mask and some spackling.... its like moldeling paste just cheaper... hehe. I started off using a lot of light color sprays but it was not turning out so I went a little darker with the sprays. 

 I used the Kaisercraft 75 cent collection. I used some of the die cuts and stickers. I used a Cheery Lynn doily die cut. I used some trim that I received from a friend. The flowers are from Manor House Creations. I sprayed them with some Lindy's. I painted this wood candle stick with black acrylic paint. 

Here are some more pictures. 

I hope you guys have a wonderful day. 
Thank you so much for stopping by. I love reading your comments.

Altered Bird Cage.

I have done it again. My new favorite altered projects to do is bird cages. 

I made this one using the Prima Divine collection. I used a lot of embellishments from the collection as well as some from other Prima collections. I used some flowers from the Divine collection and some flowers that are Wild Orchid Crafts. I used lots of lace. 

The Bird cage is for sale in my etsy shop. You can see the listing here.

It is a lot of fun altering these bird cages. I have to hold back on a lot of embellishing. I just love how it looks on the candlestick. 

Here are some more photos. 

I hope you are inspired to alter your own bird cage. 

Thank you for stopping by. I really appreciate it.
