Ballerina - TTCRD, mixed media

This week's sponsor for the Through The Craftroom Door challenge is Gecko Galz!

Gecko Galz is a digital craft products shop that was started by a group of paper artist and designers who wanted products that they could not find anywhere else. They wanted to bring their love of paper arts and altered art works to others and inspire them with beautiful papers, stamps and ephemera. The idea of Gecko Galz came to fruition in 2012 when they opened their shop on Etsy and since then have offered hundreds of products, ideas and classes to others 

For my inspiration project, I decided to use the Ballerina Girls collage sheet to make a mixed media plaque using a Kaisercraft frame, chipboard filigree from Southern Ridge Trading Company, paints and waxes from Prima and Ranger, Nuvo drops, a Tim Holtz wing, and beaded stick pins.

Dogwood - die cutting, flower shaping

We recently found out our former neighbour has cancer. I made this card for her for us and our other neighbours to send to her. Our little street is dotted with dogwood trees, so I wanted to have them prominent on the card for her. The sentiment is from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps, the dogwood die is Spellbinders.

Rainbow Blizzard - embossing resist, shaker. embossing on acetate

For a fun shaker card, I decided to go a bit out of the box and use a winter stamp set for a non-wintery love fest card. I made a Distress ink rainbow with embossing resist using snowflakes from Newton's Nook! To me, "If snowflakes were kisses, I'd send you a blizzard" is the perfect love sentiment year 'round. Let it snow!
