Featured Artist ~ Susie Moore

Mar 23, 2012

I’m thrilled to show you the tag and mini hanging Susie Moore created using my Antiquated Collection stamp sets. Susie created the tag above using the Perfumery  stamp set. The altered flowers with their bold color are perfect to accent the side of the perfume bottle. And you know I love the glittered edges of the tag. Then the pearl accents on the crown complete the tag perfectly.  Goodness, my stamp set, glitter and pearls could it really get any more perfect? Then the mini wall hanging shown below features the ATC Misses’ Aprons stamp. Look at all the awesomeness Susie has going on here… the flower accents on the apron are adorable. And all the pearls and baubles she added to the wall hanging complete it perfectly. I tell ya I cannot create a thing...

Here is the wall hanging I created with scraps kept from my Cocoa Daisy June Kit. I provided Tricia with a PDF of all the templates I created in this piece.

Cocoa Daisy Layouts…

Jun 1, 2009

I finally get to share the layouts I created using this months kit by Cocoa Daisy. As you can see the June Kit and the Add On Kit are very versatile. It was loads of fun playing the Daisy Divas once again. I used Vintage Photo Distress Ink to darken the Eyelet Cardstock. Traced a dinner plate to create the circle out of patterned paper, cut out leaves and butterflies from a piece of Webster’s Pages patterned paper using a craft knife, attached Maya Road green pom pom trim around the edge, created a scallop border using scallop scissors and a paper piercer, accented the horizontal strip with self adhesive pearls then used my sewing machine to add additional texture by sewing a straight stitch along the circle and horizontal strip. I wanted this layout...
