Projects Galore & More!!

Happy, happy Saturday everyone! I don't usually post on the weekends but I had some deadline projects due that I had to share w/ ya! I'm home alone today since my daughter is out boating with a friend & my hubby took Riley to an RC Plane Show (that's their hobby) for the day. Riley hasn't been feeling well so this will be a fun outing for him with his dad!!

So I'm spending it reading & crafting & enjoying the PEACE & QUIET!! LOL Probably will take the doggies for a walk down by the creek and pick another bucket full of tomatoes & cukes from my garden--Riley is gonna sell some for me, cuz' they're comin' out my ears I tell ya, hee hee. And tomorrow we're off to Mt. Vernon for the day--hopefully the weather stays nice. Anywho onto my long post for ya today.............


**BLOG CANDY---if you haven't entered for my yummy blog candy yet, you have until tomorrow by midnight (EST) to do so right HERE !! Winner announced on Monday morn'!

**Susana's store also has some new Copic Bundles up for sale now put together by me, hee hee. She also has the BRAND NEW light Copic markers for sale as a set HERE (and they are in stock at the moment so run, lol)

This project was made for the Whiff of Joy "August Project of the Month" which was to create wedding favors. And since WOJ has such fabulous wedding stamps/sentiments it was easy peasy, hee hee. I used a few sentiments & the "Wedding Carriage" which I cut down a bit for my box. The brocade dp is by Making Memories "5th Avenue" and the small Bon-Bon boxes dp is by 'DCWV "La Creme".

This is a six sided box that you can use horizontally or vertically--you can find the instruction for this on the Scor-Pal site HERE. And if you don't have a Scor-Pal yet, what are ya waitin' for ---it's one of my most used & beloved tools!! Really easy to put together and I think it would be perfect for a slice of cake, a candle or other small present for the wedding guests. I colored the WOJ image with copics and then added stickles to her veil, flower soft in ivory & diamond glaze to the carriage. I wrapped the box with satin black ribbon to finish it off. This would be beautiful sitting at every place setting me thinks!

Of course I had to make a couple more gifts--these are Bon-Bon boxes & the instructions for these are also on the Scor-Pal site HERE! Very simple & quick to make--I punched holes in the tops & threaded ribbon thru to hold them closed. Perfect to hold a piece of chocolate or other candy. All my projects I made I used the fabulous Scor-Tape--super strong & durable, love it & totally recommend it! Now make sure & hop over to the Whiff of Joy site HERE to see the other POM's by the DT--they are all beautiful! And stop by HERE to see all the wonderful wedding stamps!!

My second project today is for the Copic Creations Challenge blog and today's challenge is to color eyes. InStyle Stamps is sponsoring and they have some awesome anime images to play with & give away. I got to work with the "Princess Clarissa"--isn't she a cutie? She's available as a stamp but it was sent to me digitally so I enlarged her quite a bit to make her eyes bigger for the challenge. (they have both regular stamps & digi images) The dp is some of my favorite (that I hoard) by K&Co. "Blue Awning". The sentiment is by Verve Stamps. Her eyes have a coat of diamond glaze on them, her dress has shimmerz (angel wingz) and her hat's ribbon was stickled :o)
I decided to make a tri-fold card for her--the inside was stamped with PTI's "Damask Designs" in Versamark Dazzle ink. which leaves a lil' shimmer.

For her eyes I used B95 & B91 then applied diamond glaze on top for realism! Now make sure to hop over to the Copic Creations Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT's fabulous samples & join in on the fun to win some goodies from InStyle Stamps too!

Alrighty, I'm outta here---I'll see ya back here on Monday!!
