April Showers

Happy Wednesday!  I am the host of the current challenge at Frilly and Funkie!  My challenge is April Showers  because of the rainy weather we see here during April.

For this challenge create a shabby chic or vintage project inspired by the word showers. Think rain, storms, umbrellas, baby showers, wedding showers whatever comes to mind and start creating.

I was inspired by baby showers and created a beautiful cover page for a scrapbook to honor the new arrival: 


I started with a variety of inky backgrounds created in a play session with the new Distress Oxide Inks and used them to layer up a background.
I then die cut a few butterflies who also received an inky bath and then I embossed the top layer with a metallic mix of embossing powders. 

I added a few new embellishments including the sentiment and the image.
I had some old buttons, doily and rose trim leftover that I pulled out a add to the background.
An the final product which was just a lovely shabby mix of bits and pieces my favorite kind of project.  All ready to be attached to the cover of a scrapbook.

Now please get inky and join us in the challenge!  The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join us in a Guest DT spot here at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.


Thanks for stopping by!

ATC Collection

Hi!  I have been playing with new stamps! I love the new farm animals from Stampers Anonymous and started playing around with them on a series of ATC's.  A Vintage Journey challenge is the Magic of Three  which had me thinking of a trio of ATC's. I overshot that by one and ended up with four.  




I have a few more scraps of cardstock that I started and have to finish up in my series of ATC's.  The tamps are all Stampers Anonymous and the inks are the new Ranger Distress Oxide Inks.

Have a wonderful weekend!

Count Me In

It's time for the funkie side of the Frilly and Funkie Count Me In challenge!   Jenny is the host and here is her description of the challenge:

"Numbers are a huge part of our everyday lives so it is no surprise they are also often included in our creative ones too. For this challenge you need to use your choice of numbers to add that special 'sum-thing' to your vintage or shabby chic project. Make them count as part of the design, not just a last minute addition!"

I just received the new Tiny Houses and couldn't wait to start a village.  


I started with two houses, my new distress oxide inks and a mix of old an new stamps. 
Each house gave me plenty of play time with the distress inks and stamping with many of my favorites stamps.


I die cut the houses from mixed media paper.  I left them flat and did all my inking and stamping and then assembled the houses.

The best part is that once you start a village you can keep adding on!



The team will choose their top four picks with the winner being invited to join in as a Guest DT spot  at Frilly and Funkie and the next three will receive badges to display on their blogs. Everyone who enters and follows the rules will be entered into the draw to have the chance to win a $25 spending spree at The Funkie Junkie Boutique.


Hope you are inspired to take out your numbers and create something to share with us!
