Rick St. Dennis sponsoring The Outlawz Challenge

Hi everyone! It's Bonnie here today. Rick St. Dennis is sponsoring The Outlawz Greetings Challenge and I have the privilege of representing the EDT as a Guest Designer. Yay! The theme is Anything Goes so I chose to play along using Tipsy Tinpail who can be found in Rick's Zibbet  or Etsy shops.

I coloured Tipsy and Buddy with Prismacolor pencils and then fussy cut them leaving a narrow white border so I could capture the furriness of the hood and pompom. They were then popped up on foam tape to create dimension and shadow.

The card base is a deep red textured cardstock. A blue rectangle was cut for the sky and pattern was added with a swirly embossing folder. Treasure Silver wax was brushed over the embossing to highlight it and create movement in the background. The snowdrifts were cut from sparkly and shiny white cardstock. Each layer was embossed with polka dots and the top edges were inked with gray to allow them to show depth. Once the front two drifts were adhered with foam tape, Tipsy and Buddy were added over that.

Die cut clouds were brushed with Icicle Stickles and popped up on foam tape. Small snowflakes were punched from white cardstock and given pearl centers before being added to the sky. The sentiment was computer generated and printed on white cardstock which was then matted in black. Two lengths of blue and white baker's twine were added to the back of the sentiment which was then popped up on foam tape.

Thanks to The Outlawz Greeting Challenge for allowing me to play along with their Anything Goes Challenge. When you get a chance, pop over to their site to see the other wonderful Rick St. Dennis creations by their talented Design Team. Maybe if we are lucky, some of them will share their delightful projects on our Fans and Friends Facebook page.

Thanks for stopping by.

Birthday Glamour ....

Hello, good morning!  It's Deborah here with you today.  Rick has a wonderful series of elegant Hat Lady images available at his Zibbet and Esty shops; I have several of them on my computer.  I've made a birthday card to share with you today, it features the beautiful Deborah - you can see why I used it :)

I printed the image on to white card - I decided to have the image quite large as I knew it would be the focal point for the card.  I used Copic markers to colour her in.  I'm still learning a lot about colouring digital images, but Rick really helps as he provided shading lines so it makes it look like I can really colour!  Love it!  I coloured her hat green (my favourite colour) and decided to make her jewels red - you know, rubies!!  I added some shimmer to the jewels and to her fur collar with a clear Wink of Stella brush.  I layered her on to a red mat, covered the front of the card with some gorgeous green design paper and finished it with an elegant birthday sentiment.  For full details of the card go to my blog.

This is the second card I've made using one of the Hat Lady digis, and I think I'm going to do some more.  Thanks so much for visiting Sparkle and Glitter - see you again soon.

The Mad Tea Party Mixed Media Book Part II

Hi everyone. It's Bonnie here today to share the next couple of spreads in my chipboard Mad Tea Party book featuring a few of Rick's many fabulous Alice in Wonderland images. Since all of the backgrounds were created in the same general way which I explained here, I won't go into that today. Instead I will jump right in with the next two pages about The Mad Hatter.

The left page which is the backside of the Alice page was used to feature a quote from Hatter as well as a few related embellies. The quote, taken from the Lewis Carroll book, was computer generated and printed on kraft cardstock, matted in black, and popped up on foam tape. A hat tag was printed from an Etsy file, matted in black, and tucked under the quote. A small whimsical teacup button was attached to the right side of the saucer with a scrap of cheesecloth added for the steam. Small circles were punched from the harlequin washi tape attached to white cardstock. This pattern repeats throughout the book, lending continuity.

The right page uses the Mad Hatter  image which can be found in Rick's Zibbet shop. It was coloured with Prismacolor pencils and Goldenrod Stickles were added to the hat pins for a little sparkle. It was fussy cut leaving a white border, matted in black cardstock, and fussy cut again. before Hatter was adhered to the teacup with foam tape.

A small doily, another recurring detail, was placed behind him. A tea party ticket from Vectoria Designs was matted in black and tucked underneath him. More of the washi/white cardstock tape was added to give him a place to stand and bring that pattern to the page. A hat brad with its legs removed was adhered to the washi tape with foam tape.

The next 2 page spread is dedicated to the March Hare. The left side contains one of his quotes from Lewis Carroll's book. This was printed on kraft cardstock, the edges of which were distressed, and then edged with Vintage Photo Distress ink.

It was then matted in black and a scalloped border was punched from the washi tape/cardstock combo. A narrow pink ribbon was layered over that to bring some of the pink from the image to this page. Stars were punched from the harlequin pattern, edged with Black Pitt pen, and adhered to the page. Cheesecloth was added beneath the two corners of the quote layer. The final touches were to add a tiny piece of black scalloped border, three black enamel dots on the handle, and a resin hand pointing to the quote.

The right page of this spread features the March Hare, one of my favourite RSD images which can be found in Rick's Zibbet shop. I coloured him with Prismacolor pencils and fussy cut him leaving a narrow white border. He was then matted with black cardstock and then popped up on foam tape.

The March Hare was also layered over a small doily and a length of the harlequin tape was used to ground him. More small stars and a scalloped border were punched and adhered in order to tie the two pages together. yellow enamel dots were added to the cup handle and a clock charm was added to the bottom of a tea time sign.

That's it for those two spreads...can't wait to work on the next ones! Thanks for visiting today. Hatter, Hare, and I are delighted you did.
