Gerbera Daisy Box

This is the red and black box with a gerbera daisy that I made for the youngest dd. 

The daisies are colored with copics and have some stickles for highlights. The papers are from bo bunny and basic grey. The gerbera daisy is from the angel company. The outside is covered with a high gloss varnish on it to seal it. There nail head stickers and pearls and tiny red rhinestones. Here's a close-up.

And the inside.

I have an ideas for a couple more so be on the look out.

Tiger box

I wanted to get this box done for Christmas but ran out of time. I will have to give it to my son-in-law next time I see him. I also want to get some done for my daughters. 

The tiger is from the angel company. I just love him. He is so regal looking. The dp is from basic grey.
Here is the inside.

It is to put two decks of cards in. I already gave my son-in-law the cards but didn't tell him about the box that was coming - just in case it took me a while to get to it. The box itself is a wooden cigar box.I did another box for Stamper's Quest and it has more detailed instructions here.
Off to work on the next box. See you soon.

Drummer Boy

I like the song "Little Drummer Boy" and this card goes right along with it.

This is a digi stamp from . He is all colored with copics. I tried to tone down some of the colors by coloring over the bright ones with C1. It did help some even though they are still pretty bright. The snow is shaved ice from Stampendous!. The corner punch is from EK Success. Added some baker's twine and a charm. This card is going to a family whose son and husband play the drums at our church.

Reading Fairy

I did this card for a challenge here that is already closed. Oh well. When I first saw it I wasn't going to do it because I don't do funny colored hair until I saw a fairy and knew that would work. So here is my entry that isn't an entry.
This is a digi stamp from Elizabeth O.Dulemba here. She is all colored in copics. The paper is digi from basic grey. Some ribbon and flowers and a few dew drops make this creation complete.

Inspiration Challenge

I finally got my inspiration challenge done - several days late. Here is the picture - 

And here is the card I made.

The set is called apple of my eye from the angel company. And there is good news - the company has been bought so some of these sets may be coming back! Yeah!
She is colored with copics. The apples are popped with foam tape and have diamond glaze on them - which by the way isn't quite dry but couldn't wait any longer to take the picture. Patience isn't always my best virtue. lol The flowers have stickles in the center. The green swirl is from memory box. The dp's are just some scraps I found in my stash and don't know who they all belong to. Hope you enjoy this little sweetie. I think she will go to my dd to encourage her during finals next week.

Iridescent Nativity

A woman at church who plans the decorations at church says some year she wants to do the church in black and iridescent. I can't quite image it but this card is for her.
This is more silver than iridescent but there is some of that in this card. It is the same card as here just a variation on the colors. This one has stickles all around the edges and in the swirls. Here is another view.
The stamp is from Stampendous!
