Uniquely Special

My Besties/Willow Wisp Fairy 3D digital Decoupage Image

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I am sharing with you a card I made for one of my Neighbors daughters. I wanted it to be special and unique as her High School Graduation card. I am known for being different so I went with what I had in my heart. And as I cut and put this My Besties/Willow Wisp 3D Fairy together I knew I wanted to design a special card for her new adventures she had in mind to take.  And I wanted her toknow that "Jesus Love Her" and Joy, Faith and Believe God is with her on her new Life's Journey would be important nuggets for her to hold on to.

Card Recipe
I hand cut with scissor the 3D Willow Wisp Fairy digital image and put it together with pop dots. Added some extra touch putting glitter in and there. Also decorating some of the image with Ranger Pearl drops. I embossed a sheet parchment paper using an Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug embossing folder. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the edges. I also used the same corner punch for the outer edge of the card. I have my Willow Wisp 3D Fairy on a Spellbinders Oval die then placed on a Spellbinders Shapebilities/Gold Label Four die .  The word sentiments are created on Word.doc in different Font Styles set on size 12 Font, some are in bold. The "Jesus Love You" Sentiment is from an Inkadinkado Stamp set I ordered a long time ago from  I added some Stickles to my flowers.
I would like to enter this card into the following Challenges:
My Besties 3D and More #12 - Anything Goes with a My Besties
My Besties Aussie #6 - Use Die Cuts
My Besties Friendship #14 - Anything Goes with a My Besties

Steampunk ahead with My Besties

Hello Everyone,

I am here today sharing with you a new 3D Decoupage Sheet that was added to Sherri Baldy's Scrapbook Stamp Society Store. You can find her Here.  This is how she come when you print her.
I love playing with My Besties 3D images and even more so when a Steampunk 3D Sheet is available. I do cut my with a pair of scissors by hand. I do know some of you crafters out there use your Cutting Machine to do this. I have one of the original Cricut Machines but it does not have that capability.  I am more than happy to share a YOUTUBE Video done by one of our My Besties Crafters, Janie who gives her instructions using a Cricut Explorer link HERE.

I had fun putting all my embellishment together for this Steampunk project. My gears are by Spellbinders. The Vintage tricycle is by Memory Box which I double layered. My flowers are made with Spellbinders which I cut out to make spiral flowers and glittered the edges.

Here is a picture of the Spellbinder Shapeabilities  Floral Motif dies that I used cut up and turned into these beautiful spiral flowers. I also wanted to share a crafting tip on cleaning out some of those intricate dies that have all those little cuts and become tedious on cleaning. I am using a baby bottle nipple brush and it does a great job. I got tired of poking each one out and thought of trying the baby bottle brush idea.

I Hope  you found your visit enjoyable and some of it helped you pick up a new trick...until our next visit. Happy Crafting
