Delightful Dahlia Petals!

Happy Tuesday everyone!  Today will be a super short post as the flu bug is kicking my rear and I'm still not up to par yet.  Everytime I look at the computer it looks furry, lol, like it has fur---so if you got weird messages/emails from me that didn't make sense I PROMISE you I wasn't drunk.  Just sick and with poor vision right now, LOL and I apologize! Thank goodness for my treasure trove of projects I made last year for my 6 month stint as a Dirty Girl on the Dirty Dozen Team at SCS--it's saved me today as I haven't crafted in a few days.  I'm super hopeful to get back in the studio today and do some work and catch up a  bit.  I hope none of you get the sickie-ickies, not fun at all :(

But I did get 10 of my 12 Christmas trees down and put away thanks to hubby helping me.  I will finish the others tonight but hubby has to get the outside decorations---wayyyyy too cold out for me, brrr.  They are calling for snow and ice this evening but I'm praying its a non-event for us, lol!  And the Ravens won their game on Saturday so I'm hoping they beat the Steelers this coming weekend too--I would like a hometown team in the Superbowl this year :) (sorry to the PA fans)


-The Distress Inks 1 Class by Angie Hunt premiered yesterday at CMC!  If you sign up before Jan.24th you will get a discount on the total--see all the details at the Color Me Creative Classroom HERE!

-Check out the sparkly NEW fabulous Best Creation paper pads at SCACD--they are beeeeutiful and I need some too, lol!

Delightful Delilah Petals!

This fun gift set was made using a beautiful stamp set from Paper Trey Ink called "Delightful Dahlia".  This set is so versatile and so many fun ways to color.  I created a card with a 3-D version of the dahlia and a matching canvas coin purse.

I stamped the main dahlia image 3 times and colored it with copics using the "feathering" technique.  Then I cut out the different layers and popped them up with dimensionals for that fun 3-dimensional look.  Stickles on the petals add some sparkle as well.  The papers were from my very full scrap bin :) and then I added some matching pearls to the center of the dahlia and corners of the card.

I picked up a few of these canvas coin purses in my local craft store--they were only $2 each.  They are very fun to color!  I stamped with VersaCraft ink (which is for fabric and washable, works with copics too) and then colored with copics (V17,V12,V000/B04,B02,B00).  After I colored it I ironed it good to heat set the ink.  Then I added a matching pearl again but glued it on with a rhinestone/fabric adhesive so it won't budge. 

Hope you enjoyed this post today and sorry for the short post, my bed is calling me and my eyes need a rest, LOL!  See you tomorrow!


  1. Hello,
    Hope you're feeling a lot better today. I started yesterday and didn't feel like continuing to clean out my craft room yesterday or today. I slept all day yesterday and today I took a nap and finished reading my book on my Kindle. I feel better now and hopefully a lot better tomorrow.
    Take care and hope the bug leaves you real soon.
