Freestyle Fridays

Hello Freestyle Fridays Fans.  We are coming to the end of another week and it's Regina's turn to dazzle us with her creativity.

Her simple mission was to use glossy paper.  That was all the instructions she received and look at what she did.  To see the full version you'll have to head over to her blog here. I'm sure your jaw will drop just like mine did.  Please be kind and leave her little comment.  It will only take you minute. 
See Ya Next Week!

Freestyle Fridays

Hello and welcome to another edition of Freestyle Fridays.  Sometime back in the summer I made the card below and just this last week realized I had not posted it yet. 

It started with Coastal Cabana, followed by a layer of Shimmery Paper stamped in Coastal Cabana with the French Script background stamp.  The sentiment "my friend" was stamped with Strawberry Slush.  On Glossy Paper I embossed with white embossing powder the flourish from Flowering Flourishes and brayered Strawberry Slush all over it.  Once the brayering was done I wiped the Glossy Paper with a paper towel to bring out the white embossing.  Before adhering this layer ribbon was added, Black Satin and Silver Organdy, and put on some Jewels Basic Rhinestones to give some bling. 
Before we get to Regina's mission for this week I would like to introduce you to a new addition to our family.  Meet Jake! 
Right now he is all of 4 months old.  A Siberian X he is all legs which makes me suspicious he may have some Greyhound in him.  He really looks up to Frankii and watches him very closely.  Hopefully he will only pick up the good habits... he is teething something awful and actually likes to suck on my thumb.  His favorite thing to do at the moment is chase leaves and he's got lots to keep him busy. We are having a blast watching him grow and learn. 

********REGINA’S MISSION********

For this week Regina your mission will be to use Glossy Paper.  That's all your getting because I know you can do wonders with that. 
See Ya Next Week!

Regina's mission this week was to do something with a fall theme.  From the sneak below she did not disappoint!  Trust her to come up with something creative and very artistic.

Go to her blog post here  to read how this creative endeavor came to be.  Although it took a left instead of a right she added such imaginative details that you can almost smell fall in the air.
As some of you may know Regina is a frequent contributor to Craft Project Central.  She is giving away a free one month subscription.  Leave her a comment for her submission this month here and she'll let you know if you've won by October 14th.  Be sure to leave her your email address so that she can get a hold of you.
See Ya Next Week.

Freestyle Fridays

Since we've begun Fall I just had to make a card with a sunflower.  And yes, I've used a retired set.  I got the idea from  I keep a binder with ideas of cards that I've seen here and there and this was an old one.

I started with So Saffron and added a background that I had laying around from another card I made quite some time ago.  It's stamped on Very Vanilla using the French Script background stamp in Early Espresso and sprayed with Gesso to lighten it a little.  I then made two circles using Nestabilities in So Saffron and Very Vanilla.  On the Very Vanilla I stamp the Sunflower from Serene Sunflower in So Saffron.  The center was stamped in Early Espresso.  Using a Q-Tip I added gold Stickles.  The leaves and stems, from the same set, were stamped in White Craft Ink on Early Espresso. It's actually quite shiny in real life.
********REGINA'S MISSION********
Your mission this week Regina is to create a project using a fall theme.  You can make it a card, a basket, a vase, a box, etc.., in any color combination that suits your fancy. And knowing you, it's going to be spectacular.
See Ya Next Week!
