 I am a crafter who is a hoarder of potential crafting items.  I hate to throw paper goods out.

Image is from Stamping Boutique, colored with Copics and Spectrum Noir glitter pens. I recycled the pink cardboard backgrounf from my embellishments package.  the doily is from a restaurant, and the buttin is from an old sweater.
Frame die is from Pretty Posh Pink
I'm not really infacial jewelry but I thought the star under her eye matched her top so well.......

WOW!  time is passing too quick,  I can't believe I haven't  had craft time in over a month. I really miss my de-stress time! Not to mention my to do pile is growing bigger and bigger.  

One of my favorite new stamp sets from Stampin Up, Teddy Bear.  I love the triple stamping,  you can make this bear look so real.  Next I want to try a black bear.

I used the We are Memory Keepers 3-D heart embossing folder, it really pops the background.  Other colors of DP are Dapper Denium by SU.

 i could not resist Tracy's new image, "PinUp Kisses"  Colored with my Copics, and Spectrum Noir Glitter on her bow!  All layers are raised, so this card has alot of dimension.  Do you hate having white foam or foam tape show under dark colors?  I do, but I found a new product, Cool Tac Foam Clear"  LOVE IT!!!  Adds dimension but you can't see anything but your creation.  And its soft so it compresses for easy mailing then pop backs up.  Cardstock is fro Stampin Up, rest from stash.


Challenges:
Paper Players: color challenge

I am so excited to share Stef's, aka Glitterbabe,  Engagemet Ring with you.  I cheated and used her precolored image,   anything to save crafting time, right?  I added shimmer with my Spectrum Noir Glitter Markers. 

 I love shaker cards,  and with the Fuse tool, you can make shaker cards so quickly and not have to worry about getting a good seal so nothing sneaks out. sEquins are from Pretty Posh pink, and stamp is from Stampin Up, Banners.  Stamped in Smokey Slate
