New Stamps are Here!!!

It's finally Friday and we're chugging along like the little train that could!  I think I can... I think I can...  However, there is one thing that I would change:  I KNOW I can... I KNOW I can!!!  Why?  Because Jesus says that ALL things are possible for those who believe - and that we can do ALL things through Him as He gives us strength whoooo hoooooo!!!

Now for those of you who are fans of Victoria Case for SCACD, you are in for a real treat!!!  Even if you've never heard of her or seen her fabulous artistry, you'll enjoy today's ride for sure!

So... if you've stumbled upon my blog and would like to start at the beginning of the hop, you'll want to head over to Elaine's Blog where you will be 'wow-ed!'  If you've already been traveling along with us, you should have come here from Melanie's blog where you've feasted your eyes on some of the best coloring around!!!

I'm so excited that I finally get to show you what I've been working on!  This first image is called Wishes Do Come True by Victoria Case for SCACD.  I instantly thought of her being in a bottle, so I searched high and low for both paper and a glass container.  This is what I came up with...

Here's a little gift idea : )  The peanut M&M's are yummy cuz I tasted 'em while I picked out just the green and blue ones LOL!

Wishes Do Come True is stamped with Memento Ink, colored with copics:  Hair - E35 E34 YR21 YR20; Skin - E11 E21 E00 R20; Blues - B26 B23 B21 B000; Greens - G99 G94 G82 G40.

To make the jar look like glass, I recycled a piece of clear acetate from the packaging that a set of stamps came in.  If the jar was smaller, I would have used Diamond Glaze!

I LOVE the look of beads, so I made some jar 'charms.'  I also LOVE pearls and all things sparkly, so I've added some to the bow, the knob on the lid and as a corner embellishment on the card : )  Check out similar products HERE.

Yes... I actually did the inside - I know... mark your calendars on this momentous occasion hee hee.  Since the image is called Wishes Do Come True, I thought having a gift card holder would be appropriate!

Challenges Entered:  Party Time Tuesdays, By the Cute and Girly, Top Tip Tuesday,  Die Cut Dreams, Sir Stampalot, Bearly-Mine, Inky Impressions, Simon Says,  The Paper Shelter, Crafty Ribbons - Bingo (Handmade embellishments, ribbon, gems) Paper Playtime

...For my second project, I wanted to do 'quick and easy' with a little bit of a punch!
Here's my version of Happy Town by Victoria Case for SCACD.

Although I haven't baked them yet... the inside of this box will hold 4 yummy cupcakes!!!  Can you taste the moist, delicious, melt in your mouth (chocolate, white or yellow) cake with (chocolate or vanilla) frosting piled high???  YUM!

The easy peasy card to match!  Again, I stamped with Black Memento Ink and colored with copics:  B95 B93 B91 B00 B000; R29 R27 R24 R22 R21; G28 G24 G21 G40; E18 E17 E15 E13 E11 E00; YR24 Y17 Y15 Y13 Y11.  For some glorious shimmer, I've painted on a few coats of Ice Crystal Glamour Dust Ultrafine Glitter Paint!  The sentiment is computer generated.
