I'm excited to announce that I'm now part of the DECORATE TO CELEBRATE Design Team. The whole thing came about with some confusion on my part, but it all worked out. If you follow my blog at all, you know that I love to make 3D items especially if there's a party involved.
This week's sponsor is Lilian from Stamp Prints . She will be giving away some digital stamps to one lucky winner for this challenge #16 so make sure you link your projects to the Decorate to Celebrate site.
Here's my project:
I used the Beary Cute digital stamp set from Stamp Prints. I sized this cute bear to about 2". I made a whole sheet of them for these cute straw tags. I water colored the bears using my skin tone Tom Bow markers and a water brush. Then I painted in the dresses with pink watercolor paint. Once that dried, I made a mask for the bear leaving the dress area open. I then stamped white acrylic paint with a bubblewrap stamp (Elements for Lila Grey). On some of the dresses, I drew scalloped collars. The rest of the tag is pretty easy to figure out. I matted the sentiment (also included in the digi set) on black cardstock and then again on this gold print paper. Attached a portion of a white doily to the back. Added a clear button, gold ribbon scrap and white twine. Easy Peasy!
Kenny brought home about two dozen of these mason jars with the straw holes from work one day (someone was giving them away - WHAT?!). I was so proud that he snagged them for me. He almost never does that! The gold striped straws were left over from the engagement party last month.
I made a dozen of these for my coworkers' baby shower this week. It may be hard to tell, but these jars have chalkboard labels on them. Again...who wouldn't want these??

I'm also posting this on the WOYWW site. I stumbled across this site awhile back and I love the community and variety of crafters/artists that link there every Wednesday. We get a peek in the work desk of people all over the world. No competition...no contests...just friendship among each other. I haven't been linking very long, but already found some favorites. If you get a chance, go over to Stamping Ground which is where the linkage is. Take a peek, leave some comments and be inspired.
