Please help me welcome LISA

Lisa is a new member of my EDT and will be working both blogs but will be on the Sparkle and Glitter Team.
I had asked Lisa to do a GDT spot for me and when I got her samples back I was so blown away that I invited her to take a spot on the team immediately.
As many of you know I look for people who think outside the box, use digis in interesting ways and also who are highly talented in colouring, design, texture etc-I think you will agree with me that LISA MINKLER has all these attributes.
First here is a 3D ornament using my EEK A MOUSE digi:

Here is what LISA wrote about the ornmant and her process followed by MORE pictures:
*Printing image out 8 times and coloring each individually with Copic markers for later use in decoupaging. * Cutting out two Stampin' Up! Apothecary Accent pieces as the ornament base. * Fussy cutting around two of the colored images, foam mounting one to each side of the ornament base and then decoupaging certain aspects of the image. (Santa's hat, leg,, snowman's hat, mouse, elf's face and star) * Decoupaging twice over each section to add depth and layering. * Tim Holtz Festive Greenery was then added and a few bits of red Stickles for the berries, Snow-Tex for the fluff on Santa's outfit and Glossy Accents added for the snowy, icy appearance of the snowman.. * Silhouette Cameo was used to create a banner and sentiment of "Merry Christmouse" * Wire loop added to hang from the tree *Card with matching elements was then created to complete the set.

WOW huh? Imagine getting that Christmas Card/Ornmant...
Here is a littleinformation about our bew team member LISA MINKLER:
My name is Lisa, but I go by the nickname Bird. I'm a military wife to an incredible firefighter and mom to two freakin' awesome teenagers. Art and crafting runs in my blood as my entire family has some sort of wonderful talent and I think I come by the love of macabre naturally as Ambrose Bierce is a relative of mine and our family has always celebrated the fact that our son celebrates the same birthday with Vincent Price. If it's inky, sticky, glittery, textured, refined, shabby chic, country or eclectic, I love trying my hand it. Anything recycled or re-purposed makes my heart skip a beat and I absolutely love coloring images from amazing artists like Rick St.Dennis.
For her 2nd project, Lis knocked my socks off with her 3D LIGHTED Halloween decoration:

Once again a few words from Lisa about the project and then MORE PICTURES:
* Enlarging image to encompass most of an 8 1/2 x 11" piece of cardstock and then coloring each element with Copic markers. * Silhouette Cameo was then used to cut out a basic 3D home to use as the skeleton of the house. * Mansion image was then folded along decided lines and then carefully wrapped around the basic 3D house. * Windows were cut out using an X-Acto Knife * Accents added of trees, resident (Lucy), visitors (trick or treaters), tombstones, and gates and the softness of the moss and dead grass applied as well. * A hole is cut in the base to allow an small electric candlestick to stand inside the house and illuminate the structure at night. * All elements are attached to a lid that has been inverted and then sprayed with Tim Holtz Black Marble Dylusions Ink Spray.

This image is my Trick or Treaters for the EURO line and will be in the shoppe Halloween section very soon:

free Elf and some coool news

I had planned to make a quick little post using the elf digi that was a freebie in Rick's July newsletter, but while taking the pics of my  projects there was some "breaking news". And  cause we are talkin NEWS  letter here I's thought I'd also share it with all of you.

Over at I Brake for Stamps are a lot of Randi Dandi images now available in RUBBER
ofcourse the Randi Dandi digi's are still available there too.  Now digi's are great of course but I know a lot of you love rubber also, so I think it's great news.

here a card using the Alice Randi Dandi images, not all the images on this card are in Rubber just check it out here

Now back to the original post, the freebie elf. As you may already know Rick sends out a free news letter every month, and besides news there are also some extra's such as freebie digi images or discounts, so well worth subscribing to it, here

here my project,

It's a piece of cardboard, painted using acrilyc paint and bubble wrap, also made a mask out of a tim holtz swirl die.
added glimmer mist and glitter to make it look like the fairy dust the senti is talking about

the elf has the feather of an angel in his hand, and I coloured the cute guy with colouring pencils

 this pic is tryng to show you the glitter,  Always hard in a pic, and a closer look of the sentiment

Hope you like the the little elf project if you have any questions you can contact me here

Emma Hemlock

Hello! Alison here. Yesterday on the Airless Chambers blog I shared a project featuring the newly released Steampunk Peg. Today, I have a bit of a softer project using Emma Hemlock. She is also new and can be purchased only at I Brake for Stamps.

I promised yesterday more color....and that is just what I've given you! I loved coloring this Randi Dandi image. She has such an amazing headpiece on.

Here is Emma without her background. I colored her using only Spectrum Noir markers.

This is another 6x6 mini page. I have quite a collection of these going! I enjoy working on a 6x6 format. Did you notice the beautiful Damask print on the orange cardstock? That's one of my favorite stencils from Dreamweaver Stencils. It is just perfect for Halloween images. I hope you have enjoyed my two latest creations. If you would like to see more of my work, you can visit me HERE. Have a creep-tastic day!
