Festive Friday Hop!!!!

Image
Good morning everyone and welcome to the second Festive Friday Blog Hop 2012.   It has been a challenge for me to create Christmas cards when Valentines day is so close and all you see everywhere is heart decorations and Christmas is so far away, but it was so nice to give out the cards I made last year to my friends and family, now I get to make a lot more and more people will get these. 


Hope you enjoy looking at all the cards made by everyone, so please make sure you  start at the beginning of the hop -  So make sure you start with Terri's site  http://terrisproul.blogspot.com/2011/11/festive-friday.html.


Did you come here from http://www.stinkydogdesigns.blogspot.com/ ?, if not please go back and start from the beginning. 

So I got a personal die cutting machine, and decided to play with it - after all it is my first time I make my own shapes - I had the chance to play around with some ink pads, some other products to make these cards.  I've been told all my life that practi…

Masquerading around!

A friend asked me to make her a mask for a fund raising event and the theme is mardi gras - so this past weekend we had a pretty bad storm on Friday- so I decided to make the mask, well once just wasn't enough, so I made a total of six.  I decided to use sequins in different colors, mod podge, hot glue, mardi gras bead necklaces, some gems I had on hand, and some paper. I did painted one - but after I used the mod podge glimmer in gold - it covered the paint - it was my first time using this new mod podge product - it was ok, no problem there, now I know that it actually looks like paint when it dries - unlike the other mod podge products that dry clear.

There were no patterns to follow, just did whatever came to mind at the moment, now I liked the end result on all the masks, but my favorites are the ones I used the white paper with black felt flowers.

Leave a comment and tell me what you think, this is the first time making these type of masks, and have to admit it was fun to j…

This is the first hop for 2012, looking forwards to making cards all year long.  Make sure to stop and look at every one's Christmas cards, enjoy!


I'm so sorry for the delay but had computer problems at home today.  Here is my card, it is very simple but I like the ornaments.

Ring of Hearts!

Well finally got my shipment from Fire Mountain Gems.  I didn't pay attention to the size of the swarovski rhinestones I ordered, but turns out they were the perfect size for the ring I got.   Here is a picture of all the materials I used for this ring. 










Mod Podging Around!

So I wanted to share other projects I have done in the past using wood frames, acrylic & glitter paint by Plaid; sequins, paper, glitter, Quick Snippers and mod podge. 
Now I am not or have I ever used the sequins that come all strung together, the ones I use are all lose and have tons and tons of these in different colors. So I decided to use them on these frames, now how long it took, who knows, all I know is it was a really long time, and it actually helped me to relax.
I didn't do any sketches, once I started it all just took shape on it's own.  I Love each of these frames, but my two favorites are the multi color with different designs, and of course the one I made for my daughter's picture of her sweet 15th bday.  




I have added two other frames that are my favorites, these two are "butterfly in flight" and the "Family Memories"; these are done using papers, the butterfly one I also used the foil you get with your take out mexican dinners that is …

Decoupage Rose Fabric Pen

Image
I like to decoupage- so I try it on everything from wood to plastic to glass to just abut anything.  I made a pen for my sister it was covered with fabric - it was white with flowers outlined in black so I gave it color by using glitter mist - not sure the name but it looked like a pretty rose color, then I used Martha's new glitter paint - Well below you will see the steps and a brief description of how I did my sister's pen which is just like the one in this post.
