Store news and Silks

Hello dear friends !!! Well it is Monday !! I so hope everyone’s week is starting out great !!!

I got a little play time in yesterday that I would like to show you but first I wanted to let you know that Susana’s Custom Art and Cards store is now open again today !!!

Susana is up and running again and boy does she has some awesome new products in store. Here are just a few to mention.

New 6x6 Paper Pads (Jillibean, Memory Box, Simple Stories, Pink Paislee, Lilybee & more!!!)

New Dylusions Products – Includes Stencils, Sprays and Stamps!!!

NEW Memory Box Dies – These are Fab!!!

New Couture Embossing Folders

New Spellbinders

New Kraft’n Kimmies

New Vintaj

And here is what I have used on my project today

New Luminarte Mica’s and Silks

I have to say I had such a blast with these silks !!! OMG !!! These are just so awesome !!! If you click on the link for the Silks above there are some tutorials by Marti on different things to do with them but I wanted to try it on some wood !!! Oh check it out ! I think this product is just amazing. I so love it, only 1 coat of paint here on this box and no streaks nothing ( I am not a good painter so this is awesome) I used Blue Flame on the box. Then I used Ginger Peach on the Crinoine  which I got from the Funkie Junkie.  These silks took the crinoine wonderfully !!! I also used the Ginger Peach on white paper and stamped the saying over it. These silks can be used on just about anything (paper, wood, fabric, clay and so much more)


Here is a different view of the box


And here is a couple more ways I used it. I put some Blue Flame on white paper and ran it through one of my embossing folders and then took a sanding block and sanded the embossing some. Then I also used it on the seam binding I have laying on the card front here. I am telling you this stuff is wonderful !!! I know I am going to get me some more colors to play with. This product is just wonderful.


Sorry I ran out of time to make this into a card but so wanted you to see what you can do with these silks.

Hopefully I can finish something else I started with the silks this week and show it to you this weekend. But you all need to so go check out all the new products Susana has, she has been quiet busy !!!!!! And keep an eye out tomorrow on the Follow Your Heart Blog for the fun begins tomorrow and you don’t want to miss out !!!!!

Hello dear sweet blogging friends !!! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend !!! Same ol for me but did manage to get a card made yesterday. I tell you working all these hours sure has put a damper on my crafting fun. It is like I am only able to get on the net once a week and that is so not me lol But we have to work to pay the bills and pay for our habits don’t we??

Well anyway the card I made is this adorable Glinda from Krista Smith for my granddaughters birthday.  I so love coloring her images. I have colored her with my copic’s and spica glitter pens. I also used diamond glaze on her eyes and lots of glamour dust.

This gorgeous paper I got from Susana’s Custom Art and Cards and I so love this pad. It is Bo Bunny’s Serenity Collection. I didn’t add any layers for I didn’t want to cover this sheet up at all. I painted the paper behind the image with red glamour dust glitter paint.

The corner dies are from Whimsy Stamps and the ticket die is from My Favorite Things. I used a Magnolia leaf and border die and the branch punch is from MS. The flowers were coated with crystal glamour dust glitter paint.

I have not entered a challenge in ages with my work hours but after coloring this image I saw where Saturated Canary Challenge  is to use Twine and so I am going to enter this card there.


I had colored this image a while back and so I just stuck it in a frame today.  Actually I made a couple of them so will give them to the granddaughters.


Well that is it for me for awhile. I do hope you all are doing well and again so sorry I don’t get around to blogging much but I do appreciate those that do stop bye and leave me such sweet comments. Love ya all!!

Happy Birthday Nathaniel !!



Happy Friday !!!!  Well it is a Happy Friday if you don’t have to work tomorrow lol

Today is my youngest grandson’s birthday and I have struggled trying to get a card made for him but just had to stay up and get it done lol

I have used Edwin here and colored him with my copic’s. I have used these gorgeous papers from Maja Design. I am so thrilled that there is a place we can purchase these in the states now. So love there papers.

I have used some dies from Tim Holtz and have used the distressed stains to color the bracket from grunge board. The #3 was hand cut using grunge board and also colored it with the stains and put some crackle paint on it.

The banner is from Whismsy Stamps as well as the new corner die. I used some glamour dust on his wings. 
My little grandson always loves it when I make him things, guess that won’t happen after he gets a little bigger but right now  he thinks everything is awesome lol
