I'm so excited to get the chance to help launch this new division of digital stamps for my dear friend, Susana!  We go way back and Susana's team was my very first design team and if I'm honest, I should have never left!  She got me started on my road to papercrafting and the stamping world for me!  I owe her so much and love her muchly!  

If you've come to my magical place from the oh so talented Melanie's blog, then you're on the right track.  If not, head on over to Alex's blog and start at the very beginning.  I don't want you to miss out a single image!  There's so much talent here and they're gonna rock your world and set your weekend off on the right foot!

I'm so excited to present Aviana, but I've made her up as Luck be a Lady tonight!  


Isn't she just gorgeous? I can think of so many different ways to color her and different occasions to use her for!

Can't you just see her flying in and sprinkling good luck all around?  I sure can!

She's colored with copics and the papers are Carta Bella's Well Played paper pack and Core'dination's Shattered Collection Paper.  I added some Diamond Glaze to her hair bow and belt and Stickles in Stardust to her dress.

I used Floral Oval frame and scalloped oval dies from Spellbinders to cut her out and Classic Corner Dies from SCACD on the corner.  The metal fixtures are from some Tim Holtz hardware I had in my stash.

The dice are a variety of papers from the fun paper packs and the template I used was from here.  It's great because the boxes can open up for goodies.  Me, I'd fill it with some peanuts and chocolate!  I used the Art Nouveau Embossing Folder by Couture Creations on the Core'dinations paper and the dots are made with a McGill petite flower punch.

Here's one last look at her before I show you my next fun project!  I plan on entering this gorgeous gal in the following challenges:

4 Crafty Chicks - Bling
Craftin' Bouique Challenge - Anything goes
Paper Crafting Journey - Punch and/or die cuts
Simon Says Stamps - Anything Goes

And now on to my whimsical and fun, Flying Owl!  Isn't it a hoot?!

I love these fun, happy colors!  I know owls are brown, white, grey, black, you name it, but i wanted something light and fun!

She's colored with copics and has Stickles in Stardust outlining her, on her wings and on the sweet butterflies.  I thought the delicate  Classic Corner Dies from SCACD would be a perfect touch! If you look closely, you can see the gorgeous pattern in the Art Nouveau Embossing Folder by Couture Creations.

I added some handmade flowers from Spellbinders and the branches are from a Martha Stewart punch.

The gorgeous paper is from a K&Company pack from my stash and the seam binding is from Stampin Up.

The pearls on the butterfly are from my stash.

Doesn't she look so happy and fun?

I added some Diamond Glaze to her eyes to make them pop and I think they came out pretty great!

Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

Tuesday Throwdown Challenge Sponsored by Saturated Canary

Happy Birthday to you!  That's our theme over at Tuesday Throwdown and we're being sponsored by the oh so popular Saturated Canary!  I love their images and Krista was so generous and sweet in letting us show off some of her designs.  I combined a couple of my favorite things to do - color some Smokin Hot fun chick and make a fun 3d project!

This hottie is Smokin Hot and she's colored with copics and I added some Diamond Glaze to her eyes, lips, braid bead, cherry, and dripping ice cream.  I added some stickles to her suit and ice cream and used Nestabilities to cut her out.  The papers are from a fabulous BasicGrey paper pack, the baker's twine is from The Twinery, and the crust on the pie is from the Stampin Up scalloped edge punch.  I can't take credit for the pie or cake template and I'm so sorry because I can't find the source where I got it from.  I'm still looking and when I find it, I'll post the link.

Here's a back view of the template.  Cute, isn't it?

Here's the opening where you can hide whatever goodies you decide.  I decided on some Ju-Jus.  Thank your lucky stars because you almost got some more cream mints!

Here's a close up of her.  Isn't she stunning?  I love her ice cream cone and I like to think that her pie is a great lemon pie!  Doesn't that sound refreshing?

I'm entering her in the following challenges:

Color Me Creative - Anything Goes
C is for Challenge - Fresh and Bright
Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party by Craftin Desert Divas - Birthdays
Craft Your Passion - 3D
Creative Creations Challenge - Anything Goes
