My Pink Stamper DT Entry

Hi gals thanks for coming to check out my entry!!!! I just found out about 5 hours ago that My Pink Stamper was having another DT call for the 2nd term of this year. I'm so excited. Although I wish I had more time to do my project.... I was away from blogger for a few nights since I worked late. But its ok. For this challenge I decided to think outside of the box. An a very outside thinking it was. I used very unique ingredients to make my project. Since making a LO the last DT call got me no where I decided to mix things up.....

Here are the requirements....
*You will need to have a blog that you regularly post on for at least 3 months.
*You cannot already be serving on a DT that has product that is a conflict of interest (most DTs are just fine as long as they do not sell product that is similar to My Pink Stamper Original Cricut Stamps idea)
*Your project must be made just for this challenge
*Post a pic on your blog with a full recipe along with what the challenge is about
*This needs to be a new project that you make just for this challenge
*Only one entry per person, please
*You do not need to be a professional but you must have a love for the craft! :)
Challenge: Make a card, scrapbook page, or other Cricut project with your favorite Cricut cartridge using the following colors......
(other optional color of your choice)
On to my project:
I decided to do a decoden (means to decorate/ alter an item) :3 I'm sooo into that stuff now. Everything is so kawaii >-<.
I took a simple wood bird house and first painted it turquoise.

Then I made some deco pieces out of polymer clay and baked them for 20 mins...

Then I cut a wreath die cut. At this point this is the last thing I will add...

I took the deco pieces out of the oven then I decorated some of them....

The next step was to pipe the "icing" which was actually silicone...

Then, I put on the deco pieces on the silicone...

I also sprinkled some Martha Stewart micro marbles in orange

Last but not least I put on the die cut and it's ready for a christmas present for a bird lover :) which happens to be my mother-in-law. I wish everyone good luck in their projects.
These are other projects I have been working on.
A decoden jewelry box

Yes this is a fake handmade oreo

Another thing I was working on was chibis one of them is the green lantern :)

and a cake

DCD Challenge #24

OMG!!! Im' nearing 100 followers and is almost time for that blog candy give away!!!!

This week the DT was asked to make a shapped card. No squares for rectangles allowed. I made mine with the Paisley cart and my Gypsy. I welded the shadow. Also I'm happy to announce that this week I was sponsored by The Eyelet Outlet. They have really cute brads.

My Sponsors

I used the ladybug one to embelish her hair. The card is cut at 3.25 because it was a little too big for my mat. Although now that I think about it I could have just made the card like this  \ rather than this -

DCD Challenge #23 Summer Fun!!

This week the DT was asked to make something "Summer" themed. I decided to make a gatefold card and decorated the inside of the card. I find it fun to do that sometimes. As always (or at least for now) I used the die-cut from my stash. (Excuse the bad pictures. I lost my camera and took phone pics)

I dont know if you can see but there is a sun behind the waves.

And now is your turn to enter the DCD Challenge HERE!!!

Happy 4th of July!!!!

I hope everyone is enjoying their Monday morning. I decided to make a 4th of July card for my dad. I used my Slice with the Summer SD and the Words & Expressions SD. I made a gate fold simple card. It measures 4x4 closed and 4x8 opened. I cut an 8x4 piece of red cardstock. I scored 2" from both ends. Then I cut 4 pieces of cardstock 1/8" less. Same with the pattern paper. The title was cut at 3 1/2" , the rockets at 2" and 2 1/2". The inside sparkles were cut at 3".



I hope you enjoy this 4th of July. And hopefully you join me tomorrow for a DCD challenge ;)

This card is being entered in the following challenges:
