Baby Bum Shower Cake

A good friend of mine asked me to make a baby shower cake for her friends sister last month. She showed me some samples, and I couldn't wait to make it! The baby bum is so cute hiding under a blanket. I made some cute little baby feet from fondant, as well as the polka dots and blanket. 

I added some pearl dust all over, to give it a nice shimmer...

It matched perfectly with her plates and napkins too!

Mermaid Prima Doll Tags

This was my first attempt at playing with Prima's Mixed Media Doll stamps by Julie Nutting. There are so many to choose from, but I thought the mermaid would be fun to play with. I created 2 different styles of tags, one bright and playful, the other with a vintage vibe.

For the vintage one, I started with a bit of stamping, then ripped a piece of Tim Holtz kraft glassine paper and crumpled/inked it. I used modeling paste with a chicken wire stencil over it and added some liquid pearls for bubbles. The mermaid consists of papers from Authentique. I added some tuile ribbon from SU finished off with a couple tassels from Prima. 

The fun bright tag had alot of layers on it. I started by ripping pieces of scraps from Bella Blvd. Molly line. Then glued them, added some stickers from the same line, then brushed on TH crackle paint. The gorgeous mermaid is so glittery! I added  tiny star glitter (MS) to the tail and some Dazzling Diamonds (SU) on her body, finished off with a flower in her hair and some enamel dots for bubbles. I really love these, and plan on putting the on a layout someday soon!

Love that glitter!!!

Button Tree Canvas

I've always wanted to make a button tree canvas of some sort, so I finally did it! I picked up a canvas from the dollar store, can I just say Dollar Tree is amazing!!  This is a 9x12 canvas, I covered with Bo Bunny Double dot cardstock. Then I painted a tree with black paint, and added Tim Holtz crackle paint on the trunk. I loved how that turned out,  it looks like a real trunk, all 'barky'.

Then I just glued away....tons of buttons, flowers, crocheted doilies and flowers until I was satisfied. I also drew some curly branches with a thin sharpie, then added some liquid pearls all over and sprinkling down from the tree. The 'grass' is a wide green crochet trim from Bo Bunny. I finished it off with some cute epoxy sayings. I love how bright and cheery this is, makes me want Spring to come even faster!!

Mermaid Mixed Media Canvas

I've been so excited to finally share my project with you all! I got to play with one of the new Prima doll stamps, and I picked the mermaid one. I had an idea a while ago, when I found some pretty green/blue sequins, to add them to the mermaid's tail. So I decided to try a mixed media canvas. This was my first attempt doing something like this! I started by sponging yellow ink for the sun, then 3 shades of orange to create a sunset. I used one of my new stencils from CW called Rosetta and spritzed a shimmery peach over it. For the water, I ripped pieces of cardstock into wavy strips, spritzed them with some blue shimmer and added some swirls and stickles. The sand is some crochet trim with sandy sequins. I added some splashes with liquid pearls and stickles, as well as some TH crackle paint in some areas to add some shine. The mermaid took quite a bit of patience to glue on all those sequins, but I love how it turned out, and looks like fish scales! I wanted to make her kind of look like Ariel, with red hair and purple 'clam shell bra' Very Happy I added the 'Discover' sticker from Heidi Swapp as well.
