- I played then with a rays stencil and some Nuvo Glitter paste

Wishing you warmth and love - New Release !!!

Hello, hello
it is a great honor and pleasure to be guest designing for SumMoreFun :) Their designs are absolutely gorgeous!

For you today I have a very elegant card I made using the new High Tea set!
It is absolutely adorraabbbleee! You can make so many projects with it! From cards to tags and why not, albums :)

Today I have a sneak peek :)) just to tease you.

My card is made as a miniature art journaling page :)
I used washi tape, music sheet, gesso and acrylics, mixed media sprays and s piece of vellum in order to get the background for my lovely tea cup.

The tea cup is printed and colored using Promarkers. I also added some Glossy Accents just for the effect. I cut using an exacto knife, the upper part of the cup so that I can insert the tea bag.
I think it really adds a little extra something to the whole concept.

The sentiment is also from the set.

But, as I mentioned before, this is just a sneak peek. You will get to see the whole set on Friday, July 19th.

Until then, you can go here -> www.summorefun.com and check out the other amazing supplies!



Stay tuned for the 19th :) Huggies all and stay safe!





Petals for the Pittman's - PolkaDot Orchard Fundraising

Hello, hello
Is there a perfect time to help the others? Well I guess not! I think every day is the perfect day to do this!



What I want to share with you today is a very special project! It is a card made for a fundaiser to help the Pittmans' during a very difficult time n their life. - Larissa Pittman is a very talented crafty friend - you can find her over the Muffins and Lace blog.
More info about this can be found here -> Pittman’s Go Fund Me

As a short overview 

' Larissa Collins Pittman is a cherished part of our crafty family. Her bio is inspiring when you look and see how many amazing companies she has worked with, sharing her time, energy, and love of this incredible crafty journey. And whether you realize it or not you have been enjoying her work for years, seeing her projects for so many of the companies we all love! She needs our help and as one of the most caring communities we know, we are reaching out to all of you to help us help her. 

Larissa has been facing her own health issues. Gary, her husband, has been a police officer for over twenty years. He was in the process of trying to find work closer to home so that he could take care of her, when his own medical needs began to surface. He has had many hospital stays, lots of ups and downs, astronomical medical bills, and is still battling, every day, to just be able to be at home and try to regain his health. They are out of money, yet the medical bills continue to mount. Please help us to help them!'


The fundraiser is organized by Jessica from Polka Dot Orchard who has collaborated with different crafting companies and artists. Together they came up with a set of amazing digital stamps - which is also available BUT for a limited period of time - that you can purchase from here -> Etsy shop.
ALL THE MONEY GAINED FROM THE PURCHASES WILL GO DIRECTLY TO THE PITTMANS!

And this not all! There is a crafty link up with PRIZES!!! sponsored by very talented artists and theit companies 
More details HERE - > Polka Dot Orchard.




So now, this is my inspiration card using Tidy Inks Poinsettia.

It is a super easy card but I think it is perfect for Christmas :)
I used a few supplies because I think that the Poinsettia stamp is way too gorgeous to be crowded with other elements :)

I colored it with Carioca colored pencils and I added the Nuvo Drops - red color and some Nuvo Glitter with the brush :)
Added the sentiment and a white lace doily, a piece of pattern paper and that is it!
Hope you will get inspired and you will purchase this stamp and all the others from the set!






Thank you for your support and prayers for the Pittmans' :)
Until next time, stay safe and take care!

All the money will go directly to the Pittmans.
