Festive Ideas over at All Dressed Up November Challenge!

 For the Challenge over at All Dressed Up Stamps this month, I was able to use the beautiful image, "Angel Wings".  I love how feminine, soft and "Angelic!" she is-was a dream to color.

I used a piece of light yellow Mulberry paper - ya'll remember using that back in the day?- placed over a medium tone of blue paper.  This was so you could see the swirls of the fibers-made me think that the breezes in Heaven would be like these...I elevated her using dimensional dots for some depth.  I used Liquid Pearls, Nova Dots, and Stickles for her Crown and Blue Epoxy Dots for accents. For the inside, another sentiment on pine cone paper which I colored random cones and pine needles for interest. 
We would love to see everyone join in our monthly Challenge and inspire us with your projects!  These are individually voted on, not a random draw, and you could win some images for your creating!  Can't wait to see what you come up with!
Thanks, Carolyn

New Release of Christmas Images at All Dressed Up Stamps


This is the New Release for November from All Dressed Up Stamps-I'm using the image 
It's perfect for the Holidays!  
Thought I'd try and use one of my pre-scored Slimline Blanks so that I could use a new
Stamp with the "designed" trees as a background!  It worked perfectly- I just colored different shades of green with my copics.  I reduced the size of this cutie stamp so that it would fit but, as the 
images from ADU are digital that was an easy process.
I used dimensional dots to elevate the image for a shadow effect.  The Ho Ho Ho sentiment was also part of the clear acrylic stamp so Bonus!  A little bit of Posca white ink splattered on the card was a great snowy effect. The inside of the card was finished with a beautiful woodgrain effect paper and stamped with a perfect sentiment.

It's PUMPKIN PICKIN' time at All Dressed Up Stamps!!!

It's Pumpkin Pickin' Time in Illinois right now and we are knee deep in those gorgeous orange Globes!  Over at All Dressed Up Stamps, I got the privilege of using the digital image, Tractor Boy  on my card this week!  It truly depicts our life right now!  

I used Copic markers, Wink of Stella-Silver, and some paint markers to create this cute design.  I matted the image and used some designer paper with pumpkins on it.  There are many Seasonal images in the ADU Shop to make your special cards "come to life".  Check them out-our Resident Artist, Wendy Burns, is amazing and is sure to make you smile!

All Dressed Up Stamps' NEW RELEASE for June!!


Here in Illinois, the farmers all around us are working in the fields and the hobby farmers are working in their gardens....trying to keep ahead of the drought like weather!  I always love it when our resident artist at All Dressed Up, Wendy Burns, offers up some outdoor images to the DT!

This week I'm using the image "Wellie Boots" !  I'm often seen wearing rubber boots out into the gardens so it was perfect~ I picked colors my daughter likes (she lives on a farm also) as she will probably get this card to frame.  I use Copics in my work then stamping the sentiment on using my Mr. Misti.  The image was fancy cut so that I could take advantage of some landscape 6x6 paper pack image.  Great ones out there.

There are 2 other New Release images that were released today and then a month long Challenge that will start again on the 15th of each month.  Come join us for lot of creation!  Thanks for looking!  Carolyn

Down on the Farm with All Dressed Up New Release

Wow, It's already time to Welcome Spring into our lives and for this New Release over at All Dressed Up, I got to use "Spring Lamb" on my card!!  Since we live out in the country, I always get so excited to use an image I can relate to.  The original image includes the country girl perched on a wooden fence with a Lamb and Chicken in the pasture.

The rest of the "scene" was created using a combination of several stamps from my stash and lots of copic coloring. I also cut out some chickens from some Graphic 45 paper for dimension.

 On the inside (I always complete the inside with coordinating paper) I used the chicken paper along with a special sentiment block.

I hope you like it as well as I do!!!  Be sure to check out the ADU Shop with all the wonderful images and enter our Monthly Challenge coming up on the 15th--you might win some free images with your creation!  We'd love to get inspired by you!  Thanks for looking!
I'd like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

NEW RELEASE time at All Dressed Up Stamps!


Over at All Dressed Up Stamps, you can tell that Spring is right around the corner!  Our latest releases from our resident Artist, Wendy Burns, has drawn some seasonal images for all of us to use!!  This creation is called Spring Bike Ride and was such fun.
I colored him with multiple Copics, then fancy cut him out, added some clouds dies and a wooden sentiment.  The beauty of using a landscape 6x6 set/page from Paper Rose is that I was easily able to incorporate my ADU image.  I wish I could take credit for the gorgeous watercolor landscape print but I must be honest.

The inside of my card is just as beautiful, again using one of the other PR pieces of art.  I used one of those cardstock sentiments from a different series from my stash. 
We would love to see your creations in our monthly Challenge that starts on the 15th of each month and gives you a chance to wish some ADU Images as a prize so check us out!  Thanks for Looking!
