Winter Edwin with Christmas Lantern

Hello Maggie Lovers,

It is a going to be a gorgeous week here in NH. Sunny, blue sky, beautiful foliage, and perfect temperatures. My nephew now has a name it is Connor, Scott. I went to see him again yesterday and he is just so cuddly.

Today I am featuring a mitten card with Winter Edwin with Christmas Lantern. I cover my two mitten piece with Maja Design- It's Christmas Time. I also paper pieced Edwin's clothing with the same paper. I colored Edwin's skin with E000, E00, R20 and hair E50, YR51, YR53. For his wings and mittens I used some fine glitter.

I used the So Jolly Sentiment and my flower paper shaper punch (from Stampn' Up). To embellish my card I used my new Cozy Big Snowflake a Magnolia Doo Hickey Die, ribbon, charm and Shabby White Frantage.

Here a a couple of closer views of Edwin:

Well now on to my DT card for CMC. The prize for this challenge is one winner will win a Free Copic Class of their choice or a $20 GC to SCACD. Join us for fall colors. Can't wait to see what you create.

Do you have some exciting plans for the weekend? Well thanks for visiting 7 Kids College Fund Store. You will find lots of inspiration from the DT; their creations are fabulous!

Today I would like to share another tag. I am addicted to the Prima Doll Stamps. I did not use a lot of embellishments for my tag. Instead I used my paper and stencils to give my tag a personality. I used Frantage for the tea cup  arrangement. And those tiny buttons on her blouse are liquid pearls.
For my doll I used paper except I did color her hair with Copic. I definitely need 1 hmmm maybe 2 more of these lovely doll stamps.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Prima Doll Tag

Happy Wednesday!

I hope everyone is having a great week. I really enjoy working with the Prima Doll stamps. I tried something a  little different and didn't color the image. I did color her hair with Copic Markers (E25, E3, E50). I paper pieced her outfit. I used a Prima tag and used several different stencils to embellish the tag. I added bling, ribbon, lace and flowers to complete my tag. Thanks for stopping by and I hope I have inspired you to create a new project.

The small one is the center of her flower - I put paper and glitter in this one and tied velvet ribbon then added to my flower. The one resting on the bottom right of the canvas - the bottom of the heart was covered with paper, the edges a hint of pink glitter and a wooden butterfly. I wanted to try different thing in each one. If you click here you can see the other heart which has frantage, mica, charm and white resin embellishment.
