Round & Rawwwww

First off, I must apologize for the pictures.
I created this wheel for my youngest son's teacher's daughter.
(Wow, say that three times.)
My son's teacher is so amazing to him and he's a little rascal.
My time was very scarce and took me forever. Had to have it just right lol
 I snapped quick pics at the end to get it to school.

I got this ferris wheel from Make it Crafty quite a while ago.
I've never made it because...I have three little boys and Daddy
 would not be thrilled with me making them a girly wheel. :(

oh, I digress....

So little man lovesssss dinosaurs and so does this little girl. 
Ohhhh,, yesssss.
I also have this polkadoodles Dino pack I bought and it'd be perfect.

I tried to find a nice mix or girly/dino. 
It turned out much darker than I would have liked but the little lady loved it.
That's all that matters. :D




I added little dino buttons with the button part cut off, in the chairs.
The little characters come pre-colored on as digi in the kit.
I chose pre-colored. They are too adorable.
I inserted to a Word Doc, copied, pasted and flipped the image, 
fussy cut them out, then hot glued them with a Popsicle stick in between. stuck the stick in the base and secured the bottom.
I added a ton of rhinestones to glam it up and the sweet little green and turquoise blue blooms from

Azure Hellos

Hey Hey, Dorinda here with today's post.
I've used tons of the newest goodies.


I began by coloring my flowers in the paper pack tones
Copics:
B39, 99, 32
Y28, 26, 32
G29, 16, YG13
Cut out a few flower and leaf pieces using the included dies.
Then I friskited my image and sprayed the back; using B99. 
I then used a burlap cloth, soaked gently with colorless blender. 
Held on area for 3 secs and created an awesome back. 
After, I sprayed Y26  just around the flower area.
I attached all my pieces, attached it to my Slendid Azure Paper.
With the Washi Sticker; I cut it in half on the narrow side to create a thinner strip.
Attached by sentiment, then worked the tape into it's proper place. 
It was a super easy, super fun card to make.
I love how it turned out.
See ya soon,
Dorinda

Pencil love

I think I mentioned a bit back how I am trying to expand myself; using other mediums.
I've always love the freedom and control of pencils.
 I've tried the water color ones and even actual water color pans.

When I attended Jennifer Dove's Boot Camp last November, I received a tin of Aqua blends Essentials. 
There are beautiful colors that can be used for skin and who doesn't need that? 
(I might add, Boot Camp was AMAZING!! If you can, go.)
So, when I had a chance to play with some pencils from Crafer's Companion, I was all on board.

To add to my Aqua Blends, I tried the florals
These colors are just splendid.
Now, I might add, since I'm not very knowledgeable,
 I kinda wait until I have a nice variation before I play.
I know, they can all be mixed...

Ok, now I have two Aqua Blend tins.

I took A Polkadoodles Stamp, "Tulip" I've been waiting to try and
I sat down to color.
First, I want to say; the colors are rich and vibrant
But when I added water, Oh my, They came to life.
The blend was so nice; without leaving streaks or lines.
Loved them!!!




Ok, Addiction happening.
I wanted more.

I got the tin of Color Blend Essentials, (Yes more skin :D)
Now, first let me say...I got lazy and printed her on the watercolor piece left from tulip.
Don't do that.

I could not get the tooth down enough
BUT
look at the colors!!!
and like the Aqua Blend, they were a delight to play with.


I hope you enjoyed today's version of my pencil mania.
Until next time.
Big Hugs,
Dorinda

Woodland Fae

I've got a little beauty from Faery Ink today.

She's called Destiny Woodlands Fae

I really love monochromatic. So, I thought, hmmmmm. what about the same colors used throughout.

Granted, they are different color groups but wanted to give it a try.

I really like how she turned out but now, I wish I would have added some pencil to really define all

that gorgeous detail.



Copics used:
Skin: E71, 21, 11, E000, RV10 YG61
Twigs: E77, 71
All other areas: E77, YR27, BG96, YG95, 93, 91, YR20

The Power of a Die

I'm here today to share with you how to created gorgeous cards using only a few
Creative Basic dies.

I've used 

Picnic Quilt Embossing Folders


I've flipped the Picnic Quilt  embossed paper around so it's debossed, 

cut my Fancy Squares & Little Things Die Set flowers out of the white cardstock.

then out in multiple colors, added two pieces of pop squares and pearls to the colored flowers

 and inserted them in the cutouts. I finished it off with a cute little edge border with  

Basic Cutting Edge Borders 

Hope you enjoyed today's card.


Big Hugs,

Noor UK deliciousness

Happy Helllllooooosssss

Yes, I'm so excited!!!

PPCF is celebrating Noor UK with Tracy Payne.

Ok, so everyone knows Tracy Payne. (If not, get out from under that rock!!!)
I have loved her work from the first time I saw it.
Well, what you may not know, is that she has a Noor UK shop
where you can get all the types of goodies she uses on her projects.
She even has a monthly themed collection that SHE puts together for you.  
Now that's excitement because sometimes, I am just not good at that.

This is what I'm excited about!!
I got to play with some of her products for our celebration.
Almost everything on my card, you can find at Noor UK
(minus the ribbon, bow and image)

I am over the moon with her products.

For my project I've used one of her personally picked box of goodies
plus some items that I already had.
