Stamperia Poppies ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello and welcome back! I made another page in my art journal to showcase the Stamperia Poppies Stamp from

     The night sky was done with some water and Dylusion's Paints, (Vibrant Turquoise, White Linen, and Black Marble) applied with my fingers. Then I used White Linen again to splatter the stars with a stencil brush.

     After embossing the Poppies onto white cardstock, I painted them with several layers of watered down Postbox Red, Tangerine Dream, Lemon Zest, and Polished Jade Dylusion's Paints, waiting for each layer to dry, before applying the next. Once they were completely dry, I used an X-Acto Knife and scissors to cut them out, and gave them a light coat of Wink of Stella (Clear).

     Before adhering the poppies though, I used the top right side of the Stamperia Wonderland to the top right side of my page, with white gesso. Then I went over it with Prima Marketing Metallique Wax (Vintage Gold) using my fingers. 

     The quote was done in Photoshop, and colored with Distress Inks (Hickory Smoke, Broken China, and Cracked Pistachio). 

     Finally, I stamped the Stamperia Grassland Stamp along the bottom with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink. 

      Thanks for your visit, and shop for these supplies and more!

Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Cards ~ FotoBella DT

     Hello again! I'm back with a set of cards made with the Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle from Each card (measuring 5" X 9") features something from the Noteworthy pack and wooden birdcages, using a variety of techniques and products, like the one seen below, coated with Bo Bunny Gold Stencil Paste and Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder.

     The background was done with Bo Bunny White Gesso, also lightly applied to the strip of gold burlap from my own stash, and colored with a few spritzes of Distress Spray Stains (Worn Lipstick and Fossilized Amber). 

     On the "So Grateful" card, I applied Bo Bunny White Gesso to all of the birdcages, following a light coat of Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder.

     The larger die from the Noteworthy pack, was inked along the edges using my Blending Tool, with Pine Needle Distress Ink. Then I popped up the bottom birdcage placed onto the smaller die.

     The banner pieces on the "Hello Beautiful" card, were inked along the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.

     Then I applied Bo Bunny Silver Stencil Paste to the large key from the Royal Stencil Set, the birdcage, and smeared onto parts of the paper, giving it some shimmer and translucency. 

     I'm saving this last card for the next St. Patrick's Day, to celebrate the first date with my husband. But to spell LOVE, I had to cut the LY from the "lovely" die, and used the leftover frame on the layer underneath. 

     The birdcage was coated with Bo Bunny Silver Stencil Paste, and a light coat of Ranger Verdigris Embossing Powder. Then I added more sparkle with some micro beads added to the flower centers. 

     So which birdcage technique did you like the most? I still can't decide between the Gold (shown on the first card) or the Silver Stencil Paste, (shown on the last card) with the Verdigris Embossing Powder. Thanks for looking, and get your Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle at!

Come Fly With Me Tag ~ Red Rubber Designs DT

     Happy Thursday! Today I'm featuring the Fly Fairy Unmounted Rubber Stamp from Red Rubber Designs, with a few other stamps on this vintage tag. She was colored with Distress Inks, after embossing with Emerald Creek Black Cherry Embossing Powder, so she smells great too! Then I added some fibers to her coat and hat, for some faux fur texture. My favorite part though, is the little button that I embossed onto black cardstock with EC Kettle Copper Embossing Powder, used throughout the tag, including the pin she's perched on!

     You can probably see the copper better in this photo, where I embossed "FLY" and the fairy dust from the Fly Fairy set. The rest of the sentiment, or song, was done with some old alpha stickers.

     This Frank Sinatra song, which I'm sure you're already singing, inspired the music notes, stamped with the Vintage Background Stamp, onto torn strips of white tissue paper. Before adhering though, I used Distress Inks to color the tag and flowers. By lightly spritzing the Dotty Flowers Stamp with water, after you ink it, you'll get a great watercolor effect!

     I finished it up with some fibers, for a fly-away look. Thanks for stopping by, and get these stamps and more at Red Rubber Designs!

1st Birthday Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Layout

     Do you have a little princess in your life? The Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss I Want It All Bundle combined with Gold Stencil Paste from is all you need to scrap your own diva, like this page I scrapped starring my adorable niece.

     The frames were cut from the back of the "peace" paper. Then I punched the sides of the "joy" sheet, adding Gold Stencil Paste to the edges, and along the strip of the "charm" paper.

     The Gold Stencil Paste was also applied to the one, from the Chipboard Thickers. Then I embossed "birthday" with Ranger's Sea Foam White Embossing Powder, onto a banner piece cut from the back of the "euphoria" sheet.

     Finally, I used one of the crowns from the Royal Stencil Set, included in the Bo Bunny Sunshine Bliss Bundle, to apply more Gold Stencil Paste.

     Thanks for looking, and shop for these supplies and more at!
