Cheeky PinUp Card by Yasmin Tölche

Hello everyone! Yasmin here on the Marion Smith Designs blog today and I have a bit cheeky Pinup card to share with you all :)

This time I played a bit with the "Garment District" line and the 6x6" paper pad. There are gorgoeus elements in the collection that was perfekt for my little pinup girl. 

I love fuzzy cutting and I cut out this spool and a spool top. I also used some images found in the Garment district 6x6" paper pad. Punched out some leaves in a little left over Nirvana Collection paper piece and glued them on. Tucked some pieces with the white glitter stems in with the leaves. 

Products used on this card: 

This weekend I've had an amazing time on a crop with some fantastic girls.. Loads of scrapbooking, shopping and tons of good laughs! What's your weekend been like? 

Thanks for stopping by us today!

Mixed Media Canvas with Jelissa

Hi there friends!

Today I'm up on the Marion Smith Designs blog today with a mixed media canvas I created using MSD stamps, Garment District papers and also Junque and Gems embellishments.

Here's the canvas:

My background was created with a lovely blend of water colors, mist and glazes. And I've combined two different small stamp modules from the Curios Stamp set and used them as a repeating motif in my background.

And some close-ups:

A fussy-cut doll from Mad Tea Party

Junque and Gems goodies. I've also dabbed some liquid pearls to accent my stamped images.

A lovely flower from Curios stamp set which is the centre piece of the canvas. Had so much fun layering the colors!

And here's the start to finish video of how I put this canvas together:

And that's all I have for today, thanks for dropping by!
