Heartfelt Wishes Treat Bag

Here's another project I created for the Crafter's Companion March HSN appearance.  These little mice from the Moonbeam Meadow collection are so sweet, and were fun to color.  I thought they would be cute on a treat bag and would be perfect for upcoming weddings/ anniversary parties.

Tiger Lilies

I've got a lovely card to share with you today, that I created for Crafter's Companion resent segment on HSN.  I was thrilled getting to sneak a peak of this on t.v.  The flowers were stamped using the Sheena Lily stamp and colored with the Spectrum Noir markers.  Since I colored these as tiger lilies, did you notice that I used the Tiger Stripe embossing folder on the backgound?  Just a little tongue in cheek humor for you!  And, my pearls are a perfect match, because I used the markers to color plain white pearls.

Bee Well Soon

Texture and mixed media are the "buzz" words now, and Core'dinations papers are the perfect paper for this trend. Not only is the paper great for tearing, embossing, and distressing to add texture, but many of the papers have an aged look already, like the Tim Holtz Shattered Collection that I used to create this Bee Well Soon Card.
