Jet Spoon Birthday -- Things with Wings at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Things with Wings.



My mom gave my nine-month-old son a set of fun airplane-shaped spoons, and I couldn't resist using the packaging to make a card for her friend's great-grandson's first birthday!

I filled it with lots of microbeads & birthday-themed wood pieces. The frame border was hand drawn with a white gel pen.

I created the background by using the plastic packaging. I Inked the plastic in order to make a mask for the pop-up Jets, but I like the Technic so much I ended up using it to create my own background. I used to different blue distress inks.

Piggy Birthday -- Lots of Layers at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Lots of Layers.

For this shaker card, I the Piggy Bank 2 stamp & die set from The Stamps of Life. I was so excited to use this set and had a lot of fun with it. I used real coins: a USA penny, a Canadian penny, a Mexican peso, and a Vietnamese dong! Funny what you end up collecting; I've never even been to Vietnam!

Tea in the Watercolor Garden at the UnstampaBelles

Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Tea in the Garden, with the optional twist of Watercolour Wonders. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!


I used watercolor paper and a die/embossing folder that came from a Papercrafting magazine. I colored the raised portions with Stampin' Up! watercolor crayons. I used the coffee cup sticker as a mask before watercoloring the background, and then removed some of the pieces to reveal the white paper. The sentiments are also gold stickers.


Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!
