A Birthday Smile and an award

I know it has been a little quiet the last few days and I apologize.  Hopefully, this post will make up for it! : )  Before going into these two projects, I want to say Thank you to Olena for giving me this award!! It is nice to know my blog makes someone smile! You should stop by her blog... she does some awesome work!

I would like to pass this award along to a few people:

1~ Carolyn (I am still waiting to see the other award on your blog!) ; )
2~ Stacy
3~ Judy


This pendant is the start of something more to come over the next few months.  For this, I used Basic Grey's Ambrosia for the bg and added some Robin's Nest Dew Drops, Stickles, and Taylor's Tiny Twinkles.  For the sentiment, I used PTI's Mixed Messages and added a few pieces of the handmade paper by Amate Studios which is also the bg of my photo.  I then filled in the pendant with UTEE.  I finished it off with a multi-strand cotton string necklace.

Materials Used: Amate Studios, UTEE, Basic Grey, Dew Drops, Tiny Twinkles, PTI, stickles


To compliment this pendant, I made a card to match using the same dp for the bg and Inkadinkado for the main image.  I stamped the image and then added some Ranger Sepia Glossy Accents on the birds for dimension.  I cut out the main frame with my nestibilities and sponged in some color to soften the cs.  I dotted on some stickles to the dp for some added sparkle and a prima flower for an additional accent.  To bring in the handmade paper I layered a piece behind the flower and tied in a small piece into the ribbon.  I stamped the sentiment on the dp directly and popped up the second panel.  

Materials Used: Basic Grey, Basic Black, Very Vanilla, Inkadinkado, Birthday greetings, twill ribbon, Amate paper, MSC punch, Prima, stickles, dimensionals

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look!
