Tea Party Tag

I am participating in a tag swap over on the Facebook group "Artsy Addicts". The theme of the swap is Tea Party.

For my tag, I started with a manila cardstock base and colored it with Trunk Bay and Teal High Heal Glimmer Mist. Then I covered the entire tag with white lace and glued it down using Helmar 450 quick dry, because I knew it would dry clear and be undetectable behind the lace.

To embellish the tag I cut out a tea cup shape on my Cricut using SEI papers and decorated my cut with tiny pearls, Prima flowers and the gorgeous crystal swirl resembling steam is Prima e-line crystals.

The lace trim across the bottom of the tag is also Prima.
Hate to post and run but so much to do so little time - I'm sure many of you know how that is :)
Before I go, just wanted to remind you that this is the last week of the Tattered Angels sale so stop by Your Memories Here to save big soon!

Ladybug Love

Hello and Happy Tuesday everyone! It's a soggy day here, perfect for staying in and working on something crafty.
Today I wanted to share with you a lamp shade that I made for my daughter's bed room. Do you remember Lilee's Ladybug room?
Well she needed a new lamp shade to match because her old one had farm animals on it :)
So I bought a plain white shade and dressed it up using red with black polka dot ribbon.

I glued the strips of the ribbon using Helmar 450 quick dry, covering the entire shade in ribbon.
Then I took a white Prima flower and sprayed it with Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist and glued it along with a Prima leaf to the lamp shade.
I finished it off with a yellow button center that I glammed up with some yellow Stickles and a cute ladybug button.

Lilee just loves it and that makes me happy! I love when I can make things for my kids and they appreciate it. I know someday they are going to prefer "store bought" like all their friends have, so I'll enjoy them wanting 'Mom to make it' for as long as I can :)

Addicted to Mists

Hi everyone, my name is Kristina and I'm addicted to Glimmer Mists.
Did you see the canvas back pack I made on my Ustream show (either LIVE or the recording)? This one here:

Well, now I'm misting everything! I made two more little canvas bags for our upcoming Florida vacation. I'm thinking the girl's can use them to tote around their beach findings.

On this one I used Teal High Heal, Trunk Bay, and Hula Hoop glimmer mists. I used the sea horse Glimmer Screen from the "Under the Sea" set. First I sprayed the center of the bag with the light green Hula Hoop and then laid the sea horse stencil on top and sprayed with the Trunk Bay. I let it dry a bit and then I created a mask out of chipboard by tracing around the outside of the seahorse stencil and cutting it out. I placed that over top of my seahorse image on the bag and sprayed the whole thing with the Teal High Heal chalk mist.
When my bag was all dry I used some Prima Alencon lace and glued it around the top of my bag (you could sew it, but who has that kind of time?)
Can you see that gorgeous sparkle of the glimmer mist?
Well then I was on a roll and had to make another.

So on this bag I used the sand dollar Glimmer Screen and followed the same process as above except I placed the screen on the raw canvas first, then misted with Sun Sisters (which is such a beautiful warm yellow) then created my chipboard mask, as I had done with the sea horse bag and then sprayed all over with Alaskan Salmon chalk mist.

I made this canvas flower using the same method as those seen during my Ustream, by cutting the canvas out on my Cuttlebug with the Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and misted them with the Sun Sisters and Alaskan Salmon. I finished it off with a Prima gemstone center. This flower is pinned to my bag so that I can remove it if I want to.

I can almost hear the waves crashing in the background ;)
If you're feeling like creating a tropical getaway bag, grab some Glimmer Screens and some Glimmer mists and get spraying! All Tattered Angels products are on sale at Your Memories Here for a super, unbelievably low price this month (or while supplies last)
