I am back with my second project for day 2 of the
I made this coffee mug layered tag with a porcelain paper butterfly.
I started by stamping the mug onto rose patterned paper.
I used STAMPlorations WINTER MUG
I colored the "gaps" on the cup with copper ink pen. I added highlights with white acrylic paint and I took a brown marker to color the "coffee" in the cup.
I stamped the mug 3 more times on white cardstock and glued all the layers together so that it has sturdiness.
I next stamped butterfly from
I colored and fussy cut the butterfly on the left. I stamped it 3 more times on white cardstock and 1 more time on black cardstock. I then flooded the top with Aleene's tacky glue. It took several hours to dry. So I had to be patient and drink several cups of coffee while I waited.
While I waited for it to dry, I used
to cut out some tags. One of white cardstock and one from the scraps left over from the cup.
I stamped sentiment on white cardstock using
The tags are layered on top of the mug. I punched a hole in the mug and tied all the tags to the mug with twine.

Here is my first project for the
I made a little porcelain paper pin.
I stamped on floral dp and fussy cut the cups out.
Then I put drops of glue on my acetate folder to hold the pieces down. Then I "flooded" the pieces with Aleene's tacky glue. This is a fun technique to do but you have to have ton of patience. This project took 12 hrs to complete.
While the individual cups were drying,I worked on the base of the pin. I stamped the image again onto white cardstock 3 times and onto black once. I fussy cut them out and glued the 3 white layers to the black one, with the black one on the bottom. That is so that it has a finished looking back. When the individual cups dried, I glued them to the base. I "trimed" each cup with gold acrylic paint. For the back of the pin, I took just a plain safety pin and put strips of black cardstock over it to hold it to the base.
I really like how the gold paint finished the pin off.
Here is a photo of me wearing the pin.
I am going to give a stacked teacup pin to one of the people who leaves a comment on this post. If you would like to order this stamp or any other STAMPlorations stamp, you can use the discount code below when checking out.

I started my double tag project by stenciling with
I colored it with a marker, sprayed with water and placed on cardstock.
I did it several times with different colors of marker each time.
This is the result. I used this paper to make tags and dragonfly.
I put a layer tulle in between the dragonfly layers and added glue and glitter.
I stamped and colored
I did burned glue technique. I put a generous amount of
Aleene's tacky glue to the center of the flower.
After the glue was burned I colored it with a sharpie marker.
There is still time to join our May Mixed Media Challenge.

is a color challenge: pastels.
I had a lot of fun making this tag. I used stencils and markers to make the cotton candy looking background. I glued aluminum foil to cardboard for the liner. I cut the cupcake out of pink and added glitter for sugar.

No card today, just some thoughts about John 14:6
Yesterday the youth at church were asked to share how they would tell others why Jesus is not just "A way" to heaven but the "ONLY way". They put
John 14:6 in their own words.
Here is what John 14:6 says
"I am the way
and the truth
and the life.
No one comes
to the Father
except through me."

Usually our mixed media challenges are anything goes. This month however there is a theme. THINGS WITH WINGS.
You can link up as many winged-themed mixed media project as you want as long as each project (NO CARDS) uses a stencil and is a separate blog post.
You can use non STAMPlorations products, but if you have kids who ask what they can get you for Mother's day, you can share your STAMPlorations wish list with them.
Prizes:$15 gift certificate for the winner -voted on by design team. And two randomly chosen winners will get a $5 gift certificate.
I am excited to share my project with you. The church I go to is having their banquet to honor women this weekend. Separate from Mother's day because not everyone has the opportunity to have children. We are having our banquet to honor women. Our theme is flowers. I made a little scripture easel decoration to go on the table that I'm decorating.
I used the following:
My table for the luncheon was sunflower themed. I used
STAMPlorations Sketched Suflower.
I die cut circles and stamped the sunflowers with black stazon ink. I water colored the sunflowers and then added gold glitter glue to the centers.
Do you see the little topper?
A photo of all the tables
The desserts were so yummy.
