Pickin' Apples image by Sugar Nellies

Sugar Bowl Challenge #3. Love & Romance Challenge and can be found here:
This adorable lil' girl is a Sugar Nellie Stamp from Funky Kits . ..
I just love them all . . .
Colored her with Stampin Ups Watercolor Wonder Crayons and used the Bling Bling Brads
I made by below. The Paper is the DCWV Sweet Paper.
Make Your own Bling Bling Brads.
why spend 3X's the amount for a lil'
glitter on a brad.. use up what You
have left over from the letter brads
and the old ones in your current stash.

Here I used all old brads and coated
them with a thick clear clue and
applied Martha Stewarts Glitter in
many different colors.

I used the pin cushions from the
products I purchase and save the
foam part to place my old brads.

Another Example of the Animal Prints Background using a homorous animal prints card with a Penny Black Stamp.

Make Your Own Backgrounds.

Making Your Own Background Prints.. Here is Wild Animal Prints.
Step by Step Tutorial.
1. Start by randomly drawing lines on card stock here I have used River Rock by Stampin UP.
2. Once Finished with the Stripes add shading in the form of a Z so some sides are light and some dark for added dimention..

3. Now you can add random dots by tapping the marker all over the images.. here you will start to see the finished product, you can decide to go deeper on the shading if you like.
4. Voila a Unique Do It Yourself Hand Made Background for that One of Kind Card.

5. Finished in Detail Wild About You. Using Natures Shilouettes by Stampin UP!

Feel free to try it... Its fun....

Pam Bassetts' SCS 4 Hounds
This was fun and somewhat lenghty but WOW!
I love here Ribbon Blossoms and she has a Tutorial
at SCS's now just type in Ribbon Blossoms.
Here I used Martha Stewarts Lace punch 3 layers
Stampin UP's Top Notes Diecut and the wording
hand typed. Stitched to finish off the look.
Give it a try... It takes anywhere from 30 to 50
5/6" strips of ribbon. Sheer is best.
GINA K's "Just So Hippy" Set on a 8x8 Scrapbook Page Layout.

Page Titled "U Rock Baby! "
I used all three Critters from the Just So Hippy Set, hand cut them out and gave them dimention by using foam tape. Each One is so individual and it really pulls the Page together.
Background Music Notes from Cuttlebug on Kiwi Kiss Card Stock and highlighted the notes with Versa Mark Pen so it will be more visible. Light shading on the bottom of the Bali Breeze Card Stock gives the base for the Card. Lime Green Stitching helps frame them all in.
What do You think?
Try it... These Critters are just streaming to be on a Pape Layout!

Handdrawn Zebra from a Baby Outfit

I got this idea from a Baby's Outfit when
I was at Cracker Barrel Resturant.

The Zebra is sooo cute I just had to try it.
Shading and Ink Colors are all Stampin UP's

Large Oval Punch and word ~adorable~
are retired Stampin UP's Warm Words.
