For Samantha

I made this cute little door hanger for a male friend of mine's daughter. I thought it was perfect as he calls her "Princess" all the time. I used my new "Night Night Ellie" from MFT. The printed paper is from Basic Grey's Porcelain paper pad. I adhered a piece of paper from the pad to a chipboard coaster, trimmed it and sanded the edges. Next, I stamped Ellie on a piece of plain white cardstock from GKD and paper pieced her pajamas and slippers. I masked Ellie and used the star stamp from the set and added little stars all around her. I mounted the white cardstock onto another piece of printed paper and the stuck it on the coaster. I lined up the three words on a clear mount and stamped them with memento tuxexo black ink. The moon was stamped directly on the printed paper and cover with a thick layer of yellow stickles. Her hair and skin were colored with copics prior to the paper piecing. I found I had a big empty spot so I added some MFT glitter flowers colored with copics, and added a glitter brad in the centre. I then added four blue swarovski crystals around Ellie, for a little more bling. To finish I punched a hole in each top corner, fed throught some ribbon, from MFT of course :) secured it with a couple of brads. I took it to her father who will give to her when she comes for the weekend. Hope she likes it. Susan

Goodluckabella

I made this card for "A Year of Bellas Swap" over at SCS. I mailed them to the hostess a few days ago and then found out the swap was on hold due to the mysterious disappearance of the hostess, so I figure it is okay to post it. The bella was colored with copics, and spica glitter pens. The layers were cut using my mega curvy label nestabilities. The ribbon I some I had left over from last year that I had purchased from Micheals. The bottom Hunter green layer was run through my cuttle bug with the traffic jam embossing folder. Two patterned paper pieces were added along with six green bella glitter dots. Once assembled the card front was adhered to a plain white card stock card. Thanks for looking, Susan
