Purple ATC

 The theme for 9ATC Group is Purple. I adhered some purple translucent paper I made some time ago to dark purple yardstick.
 I stamped a decorative image to the left side with dark purple StazOn ink, it left a very faint image.
 Stamped a larger image with black StazOn ink to the bottom of the paper.
 Used some previously inked papers to punch out dragonfly shapes.
















Embellished the stamped image and the punched our dragonflies with purple metallic and glitter Gelli Roll pens. Added a purple rhinestone to the "A".


Comfort Quilts

 Our group is making quilts for homeless veterans who are being given tiny homes through a local program. I made these scrappy quilts with lots of love:

Advent Calendar

I found an advent calendar kit from years ago and decided to decorate it for my granddaughter. I assembled all the pieces and painted them red. Painted the numbers gold. Added a decorative striped paper to the drawers before adhering on the numbers. Adhered a large scrapbook paper to the center and added some rub-ons.


I thought it would be fun to replace the drawers backwards into the calendar after each one has been opened, so I added 3D Christmas stickers to the back of each drawer.
Now to find something to place in each drawer before giving her the calendar.



Christmas Card


Stamped a poinsettia image with gold StazOn ink on heavy vellum paper, cut out and added red glitter Gelli pen dots. Stamped saying with black India ink onto gold paper, added a red ribbon and layered onto a white card. Attaced the cut out poinsettia.

I used blue acrylic paint over card stock, then blended in some blue/teal mica powder for a base.
 I used a peacock embossing folder to emboss the atc, then highlighted the top with gold metallic-rub ons.
















used a gold Gelli Roll pen to highlight the raised peacock outlines
















Painted the outer edges and one heart with gold Lumber paint. Added two small yellow rhinestones to the peacock eyes.
