500th Post Giveaway & Pink Paislee

YAY!  The big day has finally arrived...
is happening today!  First let me share my latest project from
This week at Pink Paislee we've teamed up the Color Wash Collection with fun finds
 from Prima Marketing. After sifting through all of the fabulous products, I narrowed down my selection to include the versatile Prima Mixed Media Album and Covers, along with tons of neat embellishments. 

For the cover I tried a couple of different techniques on each side; one side being designed with
 a resist pattern and the other side plain canvas. First, I spritzed the bottom third with 
Heidi Swapp’s Colorshine Citron followed by Seafoam and Blush. Next, I laid the
 Mini Flora 6X6 Stencil over the top and spritzed with Navy Colorshine.

I kept the embellishments to a minimum by first adding a Color Wash Watercolor Tag that was backed 
with a smaller piece of patterned paper and then spritzed lightly with Colorshine Blush and Citron.
 For the Prima Resin Butterflies, I added Navy Colorshine and then dabbed off the excess.
 The Wood Embellishment Leaves were colored with Citron Colorshine

The Prima Mixed Media Album works in perfect concert with the Color Shine Collection
It was easy to mix the base pages with all of the patterns of paper. Also included in the album 
set are cute cut-out pieces and cardstock stickers that you will see sprinkled throughout this book. 

This was the first chance that I’ve had to try out the Color Wash Clear Stamps and I love them!
 I stamped the background design onto one of the watercolor papers (from the Prima album) with blush
 and seafoam ink pads. I wanted a really crisp sentiment, so it was stamped with a black Staz On ink. 

There were so many amazing pieces to choose from in the Resist Canvas Sticker Collection
I had a hard time deciding what to use! I found that the resist areas show up better if you add several applications of Colorshine spray. There are four tiny pockets, as well as two larger pockets included
 in the clear page. I cut small strips of paper from the 6X6 Color Wash Paper Pad and then inserted
 them into the pockets. The Color Wash chipboard letters are a perfect addition to the exterior
 of the tiny pockets…just the right size and boy do they stick! 

Spritz, spritz, spritz…whether it’s on resist canvas, resin or wooden embellishments, the Colorshine
 sprays work their magic on just about any surface imaginable. And again, I chose to highlight the four-pocket-areas with chipboard letters backed with beautiful Color Wash patterns. 

I adore the layered Pink Paislee's Cluster Frames!
 I added it here with a little foam to the back, except for the top so that a photo can slide in. 

The final page was simply dressed in a beautiful ombre chipboard word and citron colored butterfly.
 And I mentioned earlier that I experimented with the canvas covers by using different stencils and 
spritzing effects. I like the fact that no matter how I colored the canvas, each side turned out
 unique and fun…you can’t go wrong! 

That's all for my mixed media mini let's get to the

Beautiful Birthday Shaker Card

Hello and welcome to my contribution to the  SCRAPBOOK ADHESIVES and HERO ARTS BLOG HOP

For my project, I have chosen to make this cute shaker birthday card!

Before we get started on the detail, here is a list of supplies that I've used: From Scrapbook Adhesives: Keepsakes Envelope Mix (I used 4" X 3.5") Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4 in, Dual Tip Glue Pen, Crafty Foam Tape Black and the E-Z Runner Grand Refillable Dispenser with E-Z Runner Grand Permanent Dots Refill.  From Hero Arts: Dress Up Stamp and Cut and Kelly's Flags Stamp & Cut
To begin, I added a few star sequins directly to the sticky part of the Keepsake Envelope.
Next I sprinkled some round sequins inside of the pocket.
I used the Extreme Double-Sided Tape 1/4" to close up the pocket.
I cut a piece of patterned paper the same size as the pocket and mounted it to the sticky back of the pocket.  
After die-cutting the dress bottom from patterned paper, it was pleated along the score lines and then…
