Papercraft Star 168


This week at
Papercraft Star

 and here are a couple of suggestions for you !

Fleur de lis
Our team really loved the postal aspect of this picture.
I chose a little tag.
But after I saw all of their gorgeous work I wish I had done that too !

Not my best editing there, *sigh*.

I have been including a lot of washi tape on the insides of my cards, because it is so easy !!

Hope you will join us this week at Papercraft Star.  We have been struggling, trying to find a good direction for our blog ....  more *sighs*

Papercraft Star 167


Challenge 167 opens today

Here is this week's photo ...

The really great thing about this photo is that there is so much to it !
Not just witches, brooms and cats, but I see leaves, a moon, a purse, and all those stripes, dots and checks.  I probably would have done a Christmas card, but I am just a sucker for Halloween cards still ...

Here is my witchy card ...

Stop by at Papercraft Star and see what our team is up to this week !!

Ooooo, and what is this I see ...

Someone got their Disney wristbands !!  Can you believe these are your tickets, your room key, and your dining plan.  Aren't they so cute !!

Guest at A Mixed Media Color Challenge


For the next two weeks, the Papercraft Star Design Team and I will be featured at A Mixed Media Color Challenge !!

This is actually my 4th attempt at Mixed Media, and this time I think I kinda got it.  At least a lot closer than I have been, lol.

Here are the colors for this week's challenge

I tried to stay as coral as possible.  I think I may have tipped over a bit into pink, but short of doctoring my picture, I am going to leave it as is.

I used paint, chalk, distress ink, regular ink, gesso, spray, and correction tape.  I included some old little pieces of something pretty I had around.  Had a wonderful time making this, it was really fun, but what a mess when I was done !

The flower behind is actually a sticker, and the one in front is a regular flower that has been gessoed.  The heart is a button.

I kept the end threads uncut and outside the frame, and added a couple of knots and a bead. On the bottom I have some washi tape, and correction tape.

 More correction tape, a pretty embossed piece of paper, more washi tape, and some button brads.

The stamped clock is one of Mona Pendleton's creations for My Favorite Things.  The package comes with several clocks, and she also has dies to go with them.  So so classy.

If you haven't tried Mixed Media yet, I suggest you give it a try and join us the next two weeks at A Mixed Media Color Challenge.  It is not as hard as it looks !
