Hot Stuff! ***Scroll down for Blog candy!

I found this really cool new paper line at Target called Fresh Paint. Maybe it isn't new, but it was to me! I hadn't seen it before! They have all these yummy paper pads in hues of red, pink, greens, and oranges. They also carried these glittery chipboard letters. I decided to pull out my old Heidi Swapp foam stamps. (Remember that phase? I have every single foam stamp made. Now ask me how often I use them.......ok don't!) I stamped the flames on a transparency in red and orange pain. I also painted a heart on white card stock, glittered it, and cut it out. I did some sewing again. Seems I am having trouble keeping my stitches straight. Guess I won't quit my day job! I used my label maker for the work, stuff. The orange paper looks a little yellowy, but in RL it is orange.

Remember, my drawing for blog candy is this Sunday! Thanks for visiting me! Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Bitten By the Bug Challenge....and scroll down for some Blog CANDY!

The challenge over at Bitten by the Bug was to use the clipboard cut. I immediately thought of this cute chef set from Crafty Secrets. (Yes, I am ALWAYS thinking about food!) I cut the image out at 2 1/2 inches. I colored the top of the clipboard silver. I colored the images in with my Copics. The paper is by Flair and Lasting Impressions. I love that this paper is easily distressed with some light sanding. I also decorated the top of the can with another image from Crafty Secrets. I filled in the image with Crystal Effects. The hardware was from Archivers.
Don't forget to leave a comment for some blog candy! Drawing will be this Sunday!

Crafty Secret's Valentine

I covered this chipboard heart with Crafty Secret's Radiant paper. I also used the Crafty Secret's Altered art stamp set for the wings. I added some buttons, glitter,ribbons, and word stickers. I have this hanging in my dining room for Valentine's Day! Sorry for the quick post.....CCD tonight!

Well, I made it through my first day back at work........ I survived! My students asked me if I missed them.......OF COURSE I did!

You Stole my Heart!

I bought a bunch of images from High Hope's Rubber stamps. I colored this guy in with my Copics. The paper is again from KI Memories. How old is this paper anyway? I am proud of myself for pulling out some old stash! I also used my Copic Air Brush system. I am not a master at it by any means......
I added my white SU! ribbon and threaded it through a pink button. I added a teeny little heart and an even tinier button heart on the left of the sentiment.

I will be offering blog candy later this check back!

I have to return to work tomorrow.........*sigh* : (
