SBS Showcase ~Persephone Lola

Hi, everybody! I have my last showcase of the month to share with you! One more from the Gods in Love Collection! This one is such a sweet image.

I give you Persephone Lola:

I had to put this sweet little image on a container for sweets! I created this pillbox with a template and papers from Echo Park. I inked the edges with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink, added Flamingo and Black Liquid Pearls, and some pink lace. I then added all the flowers. The image is colored with Copics. 

Make sure to stop by the SBS Blog to check out more showcases this month! I hope to see you all for next month's showcases! Thanks for stopping by!

SBS Showcase ~Christian Hades

Hello, everyone! It's time for another SBS showcase! I have a wonderful one to show off today! It's Christian Hades from the Gods in Love collection.

I am so very happy with how the coloring turned out on him! Here he is:

For this card, I used some aqua and turquoise cardstock for the background. I used a "bubbles" border punch and some blue rhinestones. The sentiment was done digitally. And the image was colored with Copics.

All Hearts Altered Wine Bottle BOX Swap!

Hello, all!  


Today I have something fun to share with you! Over at the SBS Facebook Fan Page, we had a little Valentine's Day Swap. We were each assigned a partner to swap with. For the swap we had to decorate a wine box and fill it with goodies for our swap partner. My swap partner was the oh, so lovely and sweet, Melissa Varga!

Look at all the goodies she sent me! She overflowed the wine box! (There may be a few candies missing, as I could not wait till I took pics, lol.)

Thank You So Much, Melissa!!!

Simply Challenged Challenge ~Feb 10, 2014~

Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a lovely week! It's almost Valentine's Day! Have you got your V-Day projects and gifts ready yet? I have to work on the gifts for my children but I think I'm right on schedule. Lol.

Today I am sharing a card I made for the SCC challenge for Feb.

Ready for a new fun Challenge? 

Challenge theme: Crop your SBS image, use only the face on your image.  Crop it down to a circle, a triangle, a square, any way you want to crop it but make the face the focus of the image.

So come on by and join in!

This is my Blue Valentine. I used Pandora Rio for this card, and as you can see I cropped the image into a circle to focus on her face. I used Copics to color the image and I used the DCWV paper stack called The Juniper Berry Stack. I used some Magnolia flowers from Petaloo and Bloomer Ribbon from Webster's Pages. I used some rose buds from Wild Orchid Crafts, and a border punch from We R Memory Keepers. I added some heart embellishments from my stash then accented everything with Liquid Pearls in Bisque.
