Flock and Honeybees and Sparkle! Oh My!!!!!

Happy Friday Everyone! What could be better than flock, glitter, sparkles and an adorable Honeybee!

Check this out! I have used a layer of Orange Glow Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets as one of my card layers. Which I layered over a black card base layer. Then I used a layer of Sunshine Yellow Deco Foil Flock Transfer Sheets for my top layer. But before this got attached, I first used Gina K. Designs Glitz Glitter Gel in Sweet Mango and applied this through a Honey Bee stencil called Chevron Arrows Background Stencil. I let this dry. Then using a hexagon die set in my stash I cut the opening through the Yellow Flock layer to allow the Orange Flock to show through. I then used some clear plastic, foam tape and that same hexagon die set to create my shaker housing. I then added a fun  gold shaker mix and sealed the shaker housing. I then stamped my sentiment and my bee with Versafine Onyx Black and used some Gina K. Clear Embossing powder to make the black a bit shiny and crisp. I then used a copic marker to color in the yellow on the bee and die cut the sentiment and the bee with matching dies. I then adhered them to the card with foam tape.
Scrapsalot carries this amazing flock in the store as well as the scortape and many of the other products I used. You can also check with Debra for availability on specific products,  and while you are there, here is a code for a 10% discount on your order! Just enter JUDY10 at checkout for your discount!

You Are My One And Only!

Hi Everyone! I am so excited to not only be a member of The Coffee Beans Design Team but also to be bringing you my first ever project using one of My images!!!! I am the illustrator of this image which is part of an image set called Dolphin Love! You can grab this set by clicking on the set title and it will take you right to it! So check this out!
I colored up this adorable dolphin pair with copics. The background was created using Distress Oxide Inks to create the ocean and sky. I then cut out the center so that you could not only see through to the sky and sea but also to create a super cute shaker! I really love this shaker pack which is from Doodles Paper Playground and it is called December Turquoise. I really adore how this came out and am excited to bring you more!
Be sure to check out The Multi Crafters Cafe and Sparkle Blends Shop!
So stay tuned!!!! Lots of exciting things are coming up!

More Flock!!!!

Happy Wednesday Everyone! Today I am playing with more flock! Check this out!
This is such a fun and simple way to use flock! I usedan older die from Heartfelt Creations that would cut the oval shape and had a matching die to create the frame. I used a piece of foam and used the flat sheets of scor-tape on both sides of the foam and then ran this through my die cut machine with the oval die. I then removed the paper from one side revealing the sticky part. I then cut strips of flock in different colors ad laid the strips with the fuzzy side being stuck to the adhesive. When I had the whole surface covered I then ran this piece through my die cutting machine again. I then removed the backing pieces and the flock had transfered to the oval! I then cut the frame from some gold metallic cardstock and adhered this to a black card base. I then used some more of the black flock and used a word die to cut out the word SWEET. But before I ran it through, I added score tape to the back of the flock sheet first so that it would be easier to adhere. I adhered all my parts and pieces with my favorite Scor-Tape. This came out so fabulously fuzzy!!! I really love this one.
Scrapsalot carries this amazing flock in the store as well as the scortape. You can also check with Debra for availability on specific products,  and while you are there, here is a code for a 10% discount on your order! Just enter JUDY10 at checkout for your discount!

Turner Syndrome Awareness Blog Hop

It’s A Girl Thing Blog Hop: Earn Prizes, Do Good

Hi All I am so happy to have been asked to participate in this amazing Blog Hop to promote awareness of Turner Syndrome. You are all invited to join me for the second annual Turner Syndrome Awareness Month Blog Hop hosted by Lori Kobular! Lori is a Board Member and longtime supporter of the Turner Syndrome Foundation, a nonprofit organization that strives to increase awareness and education of Turner Syndrome (TS).
How Does It Work?
Card Designers from many scrapbooking and card-making online stores each create a special card based on a mood board designed by Lori’s friend and design teammate, Donna Ellis. The mood board features butterflies, a symbol of TS women and girls, and the Turner Syndrome Foundation’s classic green. More than 35 volunteers are on board to create a card and share about the design on their blog. This year’s designers include Cathy Zielske, a graphic designer, YouTuber, art director, and columnist well known for her designs for Simon Says Stamp, an online scrapbooking and card-making store. Individuals are then invited to visit the blog posts, read about the designs, and leave a comment. Commenters are eligible to receive prizes from a list of more than 30 stamp and die companies!
Three lucky winners will receive access to one of Jennifer McGuire Ink’s Online Card Classes, technique and design videos for beginner and veteran card makers alike! Jennifer is a crafting instructor with more than 13 years of experience, reaching thousands of crafters worldwide through her popular blog.
Participating sponsors also include SheepSki Designs, Bugaboo Stamps, Scrappers Delight, The Artsy Stamper, Unity Stamps, My Favorite Things, Dies R Us, Newton's Nook, Whimsy Stamps, Sugar Pea Designs, Tailored, Expressions, Imagine Crafts, Frantic Stamper, Neat & Tangled, Stamplorations, and more! A full list of sponsors and prizes can be found at https://myturnersyndromejourney.blogspot.com/p/blog-hop-sponsors-2020.html.
The Blog Hop runs from February 1st through February 7th. Prize winners will be announced on the main blog on February 15th.
Here is my card made using the amazing set that has been designed for this. Check it out!
Why a February Blog Hop?
Lori hosts the Blog Hop annually in February because it is Turner Syndrome Awareness Month. Turner Syndrome is a leading genetic disorder affecting 1 in 2,000 women and girls. Lori’s daughter, Julie, has TS, so she knows firsthand the importance of raising awareness. Lori shares, “I am hoping that by raising TS awareness, the medical field will do more much needed research into how TS affects girls and women throughout their lifetime. ”
Julie was diagnosed with Turner Syndrome at six weeks old. TS is a lifelong condition that requires specialized care at every life stage. Unfortunately, many are not diagnosed until 15 years old or later. Lori and Julie’s story shows how a greater awareness can support all women and girls with TS.
Julie was born with an abnormally formed palate, an indication linked with TS, which led to aspiration (liquid entering the lungs). She was given a feeding tube and stayed in the NICU for a week after Lori left the hospital, a difficult time for a first time mom. When Julie’s feedings did not improve, Lori took her to a hospital with experience caring for girls with TS. There, Lori was given a special bottle that helped with feeding issues. Had more doctors been aware of the indications of Turner Syndrome, Julie’s first weeks could have gone very differently.
The Blog Hop connects card designers, scrapbookers, crafters, and more over a common cause: Turner Syndrome awareness. “Most of the comments that I received from the Blog Hop last year stated that they had never heard of TS. They were very happy to learn about it,” notes Lori.
How Can You Help Raise Awareness?
Join in on the Blog Hop online party! Visit https://myturnersyndromejourney.blogspot.comto learn more about TS, read Lori’s story, and find links to all participating card designers. Start commenting and earn great prizes!
All of the cards Lori is creating for the Blog Hop will be for sale on her Card for Charity Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/handmadecardsforcharity/. All proceeds will be donated to the Turner Syndrome Foundation. To learn more about the Turner Syndrome Foundation, visit www.TurnerSyndromeFoundation.org.
So please grab a cuppa and join in this Blog Hop, maybe win some prizes and help spread awareness!!! And as always, I can't wait to see what you create!
Hugs,
 
Judy

I Just Love The Warm Fuzziness Of Flock!

Happy Friday Everyone! Today I am sharing another Valentine, this one with flock!  Check this one out!
This is such a fun card to create. I used the Simple Heart Die from Sugar Pea Designs and die cut the the hearts to create the Heart Balloons. I also decided to create my card layers from flock as well and it gives the whole project this warm fuzzy feel to it. I then stamped the pug, the grass line and the sentiment from the Sugar Pea Stamp Set called For Pugs Sake using Memento Ink onto Xpressit cardstock. I then colored up my picture with Copics.  I adhered all my parts and pieces with my favorite Scor-Tape. I then used a thin marker to add more balloon strings to the other hearts.
