Embroidery Hoops Gone Wild {Clipart}

7 Mar

I thought it would be fun to make up a little digital stamp of an embroidery hoop that I could stamp anything I wanted on…

Then I got a little crazy and colorized it…

And that’s when things really started to get wild… 🙂

I added some digital fabric and embroidery…

Frozen Birthday Fun

6 Feb

I just finished up a special order item for a special little girl’s Frozen themed birthday party, so I thought I’d share…

Here’s the banner…

click on the image to view it in all its full size glory 🙂

Frozen Birthday Banner - The Life of the Party

First I created each of the pennant designs with images from the movie (there are 8 in total)…

Here is an example of one…

Frozen Pennant 1 - The Life of the Party

I cut each pennant out and mounted them onto white glitter card stock, then trimmed them with scalloped scissors.

I created the letters separately so the pennants could be reused in different orders and to say different things…

Here is an example of the letters in case you’re interested…

Frozen Letters - The Life of the Party

I cut white glitter snowflakes to back each of the letter circles just to make them a little more interesting…

I used dimensional tape to adhere each of them…

Then onto the finishing touches…

A couple of punched & glittered silver snowflakes added to each pennant…

And a rhinestone at each point…

Because I always seem to need to include a rhinestone somewhere…

Then just needed to string them all together with some pretty white ribbon…

Frozen Birthday Banner 3 - The Life of the Party

And finally time to hang it up and bask in its beauty 🙂

What do you think?

I can’t believe how popular the Frozen them has become!

I hope the birthday girl enjoys her special day!

Oh yeah…

I made some cute cupcake toppers for her too…

Can’t forget to give you a peek at them as well!

Fishy, Fishy

8 Mar

I don’t know why, but I am very amused by the McDonald’s commercial for their Fish McBites…

That silly line “Fishy, fishy” gets stuck in my head every time I hear it…

Okay…yeah…I do know…simple things… 🙂

The other night, one of my daughters made a video of me and my husband making fools of ourselves singing it…

But I won’t share that here…or anywhere for that matter!

Anyhoo…

I am going to give credit to Mickey D’s and their Fishy, fishy jingle for the inspiration for this card!

Most of the paper I used is from the DCWV Mango Frost collection…

I made the air bubbles…I used some little white plastic stickers that I covered with glue and sprinkled the glitter on…

I used Spellbinders dies to cut out the fishy and to make to splish splashy looking frame behind it…

The fishy is one of my digital stamps…

I tried to find out where he came from, but had no luck…if you know, let me know and I’ll give credit…

I colored him with Copics…

I am still debating on whether to add Paper Glaze to his eye…I usually do, but can’t decide if it would be too much with the glitter bubbles and all…

I kept the fish pun going on the inside of the card…

I feel like the pictures aren’t doing this little guy justice…something seems off with the colors no matter what I try…

Oh well, he looks great in real life!
