I absolutely love this card! For this card I used Prima's Annalee paper. I used spellbinders marvelous squares, Lacey Squares, and bitty blossoms. I put the third and the fourth Marvelous Square dies together to cut the beautiful blue paper. I used the Lacy Square die to cut the pink paper. I tucked the extra pieces from the Marvelous Square dies into the corners of the Lacy Square cutout. I used the largest blossom in the Bitty Blossoms and the two leaves that aren't stuck together. I cut the blossom, embossed it and airbrushed it with RV09 Copic marker. For the leaves I colored the light green G82 on a white piece of Gina K card stock. I then cut the leaves, embossed, and airbrushed them with G85.

I thought I would do a post with some of the jewelry that I have made. As you can tell I really like to do all kinds of crafts. Hope you enjoy
For this necklace I used three strands of wire with beads at different places to creat this light and beautiful necklace. I could do a tutorial if you would like. Please leave me a comment if this is something you are interested in.
This necklace is created with seed beads and drop beads.
This necklace uses some beautiful pink beads interspersed with crystals. I really love this great pendant!
This bracelet is made up of many seed beads. It looks really complicated. It was really quite easy it just took lot of time!
This necklace uses a variety of turquise, tigers eye, and silver.

For this card I used the panda from the stamp of the month kit for April. To color it I used my Copic markers Colors R29, R30, g 82, G 85, and I went around the edges of my stamp with C10. I cut the red paper with my Spellbinders Labels one die. I used the third die from the center. I used the second largest die from my Decorative Labels One die set on white card stock. I used the largest Labels One die to cut the gray card stock. I stuck a piece of the red crinkle paper down to the front of my card and sewed it with my sewing machine. I love how this little beauty turned out!

Thanks again Emily for this super cute technique! 'Tis the season for FUN with TGF!
Make it a GOOD night with this sweet customer feature from EMILY DeVLIEGER!
When I was growing up, I remember having several night lights. My Dad used to take me along with him on shopping trips to a store called "Venture" which was much like a Target store. I seemed to come home with one every time we went to the store. I remember having a Care Bears nightlight- think it was one of my favorites!
I received this cute idea via email from Emily DeVliegerand decided to include it as our Customer Feature for February!
Here's a quick little "how to":
1. Stamp greeting farm image on vellum I used black memento ink. It does take a little while to dry. You can hurry it along with a heat gun.
2. Apply versamark ink to frame (I got my farm at michaels for a dollar) put embossing powder on the versamark. Emboss now apply versamark to your frame again. Have a red rubber stamp ready to apply images in the embossing. Heat a small area till the powder is melted press red rubber stamp in that area. Repeat until you are the whole way around frame. If you do not like simply heat again and the embossing powder will become molten again.
NOTE only use red rubber stamps as the clear ones will melt. I used Midnight Emerald Obsidian embossing powder from Lindy's Stamp Gang.
3. Color stamped image. I used Copic markers.
4. Measure and cut your image to fit in the frame and then glue it in.
5. Tie twine around bottom of frame for decoration.
6. Glue frame to nightlight ***NOTE: ONLY USE AN LED NIGHTLIGHT they do not get hot the other kinds of nightlights are not safe for this project. Use an LED nightlight with as flat of a front as you can find. I used a GE waterfall nightlight I found at my local grocery store. You may need to build up the glue till your frame can sit straight.
Such a sweet idea! I have a little one begging her mama to try this out using the new Valentine's Anya :) Just may have to!
Thanks again to EMILY and don't forget, guys, YOU can be featured in the TGF Newsletter as well as earn FREE STAMPS for your projects! Thanks so much
Double the fun with TWO Customer Features this month! Our 2nd project is by EMILY DEVLIEGER:
We are loving seeing your submissions for the newsletter Customer Feature! Thanks for keeping the ideas rolling in- it always fascinates me on how much y'all can do with our stamps!
First up, we have an adorable dress up toy made from muslin material by EMILY!
First, I Stamped The image of Anya from the sunshine kit onto muslin fabric that I picked up from Hobby Lobby. I bought a quarter of a yard and that was plenty. I used craft ink from Stampin' Up! in the color close to Cocoa.
I colored Anya with my Copic markers. I colored her hair with E 57 and her little swimsuit with V17. When coloring stay a little bit from the edge as the markers will bleed a little bit further. I used spellbinders grand Caliber dies to cut her out. I used the third die from the smallest in the set. To cut the fabric you place the spellbinder on the fabric and then put a piece of paper behind the fabric and then run through your cutting machine. If you do not have a cutting machine a simple pair of scissors will work as well. Put the fabric wrong sides together.
Sew around all but about an inch and a half. Turn fabric to right way. Stuff with stuffing (poli-fill). Sew rest of Anya's body pillow shut by hand. Sew a piece of Velcro (prickly side) to Anya's tummy. Stamp Anya's clothes on felt. Dry from far away with your heat gun. It will melt if you get to close. Cut out clothes . PLAY!
So super cute! I know my 7 year old would love one of these! Thanks, EMILY!
I love the Spellbinder Marvelous square dies! They are so elegant. For this card I used all the dies except the largest and the smallest. I started by stamping my flower image ( Unity Stamp Co) on white card stock. I then cut the layers out of various colors of card stock. I embossed them after I cut them. I masked the flower image and airbrushed the center of my first layer. I embossed the front of the card with Spellbinders embossiblity circles. I then airbrushed that. Cut the tag out with the Spellbinders ribbon banner embossed and airbrushed it. I used Copic B93 for all my airbrushing on this card. This card was simple, and so beautiful!
For this card I really wanted to try a new Copic technic. I love how it came out for the little dragons skin. For this card I used Whimsy stamps Dreaming Dragon, the Spellbinders I used were circles large and circles small, fancy tags, Lacey circles and ironwork accents corners. I put two corners together to form the beautiful squares! I used some gauze fabric behind the dragon to add some softness. The vision stamp is from Unity Stamp company. I airbrushed the fancy tag with Copic R59. Sorry I did not keep track of the colors I used for the dragon. I will make sure to do that next time.

Here is a new card I made with the Kit of the month from May 2012.
I used a new spellbinder called Marvelous Squares. I love this die set! I then airbrushed the middle. I colored the flower with my Copic markers.
