Peacock Beauty at D2D

It's a true beauty icon for this week's freebie image " Peacock Beauty" and  a perfect sentiment at Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge. If you weren't able to play last week's challenge, you can still get this and other fab images at Designed2Delight digital stamps store.
For my card, I designed a simple yet elegant card. I decoupaged its lovely plumes and applied glitter. I punched one side using Martha Stewart Optic Dot edge puncher and placed a ribbon on the other side attached with a pearlized buckle.

Stand proud and be glad 'cause there's beauty in us all!

Strawberries freebie at D2D

I hope you're having a berry sweet day 'cause it's strawberries freebie this week at Delightful Inspiration Progressive Challenge! This image really look luscious and sweet! Love also the plant swirls and flowers along with the strawberries. Visit Designed2Delight digital stamps for new fun summer images for your collection.
When I think of strawberries, I see shiny red color, so I made a red Stepper card. I included also Sitting Kaela from the Ladybug Kaela set of Designed2Delight available for purchase. She looks really sweet and is one of my favorite D2D images. Here's my card:

To make the strawberries shiny, I brushed PVA glue over the image and when dried, it made the red color really bright. I added some die-cut swirls and printed different sizes of flowers from the strawberry image. The sentiment is a freebie from Tlc Creations printed on polka dot paper and framed using Beaded Circles from Spellbinders.

Have a sweet day!

All in the Ocean Challenge at MPS

With summer season in most parts of the world, the "All in the Ocean" Challenge this week at Michelle Perkett Studio would have one rushing to the beach and swim to the inviting splash of the sea. And when we think of ocean, I imagine the loveliest of its creatures we call "mermaids". There are lovely mermaid images available at MPS and I instantly fell in love with this one called Tutti Frutti. With all the intricate adornments on her hair and body, I can only imagine the careful selections of details Michelle Perkett has put into her designs. You can check out and purchase some of her creative works here.
For my card, I made an easel card with scallops using my Marianne Design Creatables stencil LR0112 to create the effect of Tutti Frutti inside a giant shell. Here's my finished card:
I glued some mini baby pink craft balls bought from a local craftstore on her hair and body and carefully applied just a bit of Pebeo crystal touch coloring paint on them to look like pearls. The other accessories were colored with Tria marker pens, Twinkling H20s and glitter.
I also added some transparent bubble stickers in different sizes and on the biggest one I inserted the word "Hi".
For my favorite part to embellish-the tail, I glued some very small hexagon metallic paper which I found at a bookstore. I think they were made from scraps, like the holes in doughnuts made into something else. My daughter, Athena, always wonder how I could find and use the very small of things for my craftworks. I bought this last year and I thought this would be perfect for the scales on the tail. If there is none available at your place, you can also use a very small circle puncher and metallic paper and have the same effect. See how it glows:
I have the perfect sentiment also to go with this, a freebie from Whenthescraphitsthefun:
 Have a great summer!
