Aurora Stamps

Just love these images but then fantasy is one of my favorite subjects and this lady does some great stuff. Here are a few of the items I have created with her images.




The card above is using the Daisy Sprite image, 
I added Lagoon Stickles to the inner wings of the sprite 
and also to the lower wings of the small butterflies.


 The card above was made with different shades of the blue colors and the backround paper I used was some that I made. I really love the sheer ribbon that has the sheer and solid mix together.

            
       The card above  is a cutie called Flying Kitten and the wording just fit this perfectly.


One of my all time favorites is the Strawberry Sprite and I have used this image quite alot.
Go on over and take a look at her images, I know you will fall in love with them. Here is her challenge blog -  http://aurorawingschallenge.blogspot.com/.

Gecko Galz April Samples

Okay it was so much fun making the samples for April since it is Easter time. 
With my grandson living with me, I get more into decorating now.
 For our Customer challenge project I chose to make a banner.

-The banner pieces were one of the $1 finds from Michael's and 
  I covered them with a colorful basket weave paper that I have had 
  in my stash for awhile. and then inked the edges in brown.
-The rabbit face was a chipboard piece that I forgot I had, I cut
  pieces fro the basket weave paper for the inside of his ears, pink

  pompom for nose and used a white pipe cleaner for whiskers. The

  eyes are blue circles with black circles inside and a white pen to
  make the highlights. I then glued it on to one of the banner pieces.
 -Images are from Easter Parade Icons and I put a doily under each
  one. Doily's were gotten at Michael's.
 -I strung the pieces up with white bakers twine.
 -Plastic eggs are from almost everywhere but make sure you check
  to make sure the holes are in the ends (some eggs don't have them)
-I am thinking of adding ribbon thru the holes on the four banner
 pieces, think they would look cute with bows hiding the holes.

For my Monthly Sample I chose too make a card 
(because I am a crazy card lady !!!)
         
                          
- Card base is made with a cream color card stock.
- Card front is a colorful basket weave that I had in
my paper stash....very Eastery
- Image is from Easter Parade Icons 2
- I covered the top of image with little paper flowers
and put rhinestones in the middle of each.
- Ribbon is a pink polka dot shear.
- Everything was inked in brown
