This is a special Color Me Monday. I am releasing a new digi stamp called "Brave Chick".It is close to my heart, because my daughter fights a battle everyday with her Polycythemia Vera Mutation JAK2V617F, a rare form of Leukemia. But this little old stamp is not just for her, but for everyone fighting the good fight.
It's a opportunity to create a little card to brighten someones day, make them laugh, or remind them they are not alone. I hope this card and stamp are perfect for lifting the spirits of friends and loved ones.
May every woman who goes through the difficult trial of losing ones hair, and battling this horrible thing called cancer remember...
I saw this Rectangle Shadow Box Pendant-Locket and had to create a Halloween theme necklace! I thought the perfect stamp for this would be "Danse Macbre" by Stampendous of course . . . because I'm obsessed with skulls! It was really very easy to do!
Step 1: Stamp Danse Macabre with black StazOn onto Orange Iris Mylar Shimmer Sheetz. Cut to fit into Rectangle Shadow Box, and glue in place. Stamp Danse Macabre with black StazOn onto white cardstock. Add color with purple marker. Cut out and use 3 layers of foam tape to attach to inside of box.
Step 2: Glue purple scrap to inside bottom of box. Add Glossy Accents to attach rhinestone to purple paper. Next add Glossy Accents to paper and sprinkle with Stampendous purple micro glitter.
Step 3: Close door. Using silver StazOn, stamp Stampendous Tricky Words magic dust Stamp to outside of door. Then add orange rhinestones to finish. String beads and attach to chain!
