Fall box swap

I just finished making this gorgeous fall box for my partner,
Tiffany, on the CMB. I love the way it turned out with the sparkly
leaves, prima flower and butterfly, ribbon, netting from websters pages
etc. First I stianed the whole thing with a butternut stain then added
a 2nd coat with a varnish inside and out. On the ends I spray
painted with gold spray paint. Then I began making the layers
working the corners/edges etc with Th inks etc and finally added the
Once Upon a Time paper and embellishments. On the front is a T
that I both painted 2 tone and also glossed the front and added the
decorative key.
                                         Here's a front view
Here's the top
I used suede glimmer mist on the prima flower as well as
adding gold accents.

The ends both look the same

Challenge card for the CMB

Hello ladies,
Today I worked on a challenge card for the CMB June Bug grp
We were to use purple, a shaped card (not square or rectangle)
and ribbon. My dd has a bday coming up so I thought I could
make her card now and use it for this challenge. I used the
Wild card cricut cart for the card and curvey verses for my
stamped sentiment. I wove the ribbon around the outer heart
and tied it in a double bow, then added the sweet cream colored
rosebud trim. I also finished the inside and made a matching
envie, because I will be mailing this to her soon. Tell me what
you think of it!  Kathy



                                            With envie behind it

TH dress form tag with charm "dancer theme"

I made this for the swap at the CMB, I was going for the ballerina
look with it. I used numerous TH products including Crackle paint

glaze ( on dress form) Several TH inks etc. I made her Tu tu with
4 layers of pink netting, some sweet pink trim and a ribbon rosette
at the waist. I used a "Bloomers flower" from Websters Pages
on the corner and adhesive backed half pearls as well. You can't dance
without music so I used the music note paper as a background.
This was also my 1st time trying a shrinky dink, I made Ballerina Tilda
and colored her with stickles and alcohol ink.
 Thanks for stopping by......

Summer pin cushion swap and stick pins

I joined a summer pin cushion swap at the cmb, we were to use something
other than a tea cup and have a summer/beach theme. Also we were to make
4 stick pins for our partner. This is what I came up container is brass
and I used a gorgeous blue satin cover for the pin cushion. Along the edges are
tiny sea shells and at the end a profusion of sea shells, rocks, pearls, a button,
and flowers. I also made a fishnet off the side with a darling glass sea horse charm hanging from it. I love the way this turned out, hope you will too!
Thanks for stopping by......... Kathy
