GC108: Color Challenge The color of money

I can't believe it's my 4th week as a Visiting Artist over at Gingersnap Creations!! This week GC108: Color Challenge -The color of money is the theme.
I live in the USA and green is the color of money.
I painted a piece of cardboard with some Peeled Paint Distress Crackle Paint.

The pea pod vintage image I found on Graphics Fairy

I hand dyed the seam binding with a few green Tim Holtz's Distress Inks. The tag was made with the Tiny Tags and Tab Sizzix Die. I added a few gems and a butterfly I made with the SU! Beautiful Butterflies Sizzlet Die.
Can't wait to see what everyone makes!!!

Gingersnap Creations: GC106 Spicy Supply- Packing Materials!

Here is my Visiting Artist Project #2, for this week's Spicy Supply- Packing Materials over at Gingersnap Creations
I made a card for a friend of mine. One of the online stamp supply stores packs their shipments in this nice kraft paper. So I used that to make the tiny tags (Tiny Tags and Tab Sizzix Die) and the flowers (Tattered Florals Sizzix Die). I sprayed half with Cosmos Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist and the other half with Dried Marigold Distress Reinker mixture I made. The stamps are SU! and so is the Tulip dry embossed border. Thanks for looking! Can't wait to see what everyone makes!!

I'm a Visiting Artist @ Gingersnap Creations!!

I'm so excited to share that I'm a Visiting Artist over at Gingersnap Creations for the month of June!! This week GC105: Chestnut Theme Challenge - At the Mall. Here's my tag:

I found this fun vintage image of 3 sisters in a tiny car going to the mall over at Graphics Fairy.
I used the Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder from SU on the Crumb Cake cardstock along with a On The Edge Sizzix die to make the shape. I used another vintage embossing folder on the dress form.

The dress form is from the Sewing Room Tim Holtz Sizzix die. I used Worn Lipstock and Walnut Stain distress inks. I made the dress form a skirt and gave her a bead necklace.

I typed "We are off to the mall!" on PSE8 using my favorite typewriter font 1942 Report.
Thanks for looking, and I can't wait to see what everyone makes for the theme this week!!
