This week on Try It On Tuesday the challenge is Feminine and Fancy. So, I created this tag using Simple Stories “A Charmed Life” and Prima’s Doll die/stamp set.
I used Peachy Keen Clear Stamps “laugh taffy” to create the face. She looks so cute with the face.
Be sure to check out the other design team members creation at TIOT and come and play!
As most of you know I am a design team member for Scrapadabadoo. They have their own Ustream channel: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/scrapadabadoo-crafts. It will be another creative channel for everyone to get more creations from the design team and have lots of fun. We are all using the same gorgeous paper collection from Prima: Time Traveler and it will be a great way to showcase 4 different creations from one paper line. As well, other design team members will be posting small projects on facebook through out the day. It’s very exciting and I hope you can join us.
Here are some sneek peeks of the project I choose using the prima doll album:

Just wanted to share with you what I did with the Prima Rose Doily die. I took the negative parts to create this card using Prima’s collections: Stationary’s Desk, Cartographer and the metal die.
Negative pieces from inside the two roses and the leaves.
I also, used the packaging from some of Prima’s small flowers. It looks good like this and you could add a sentiment in the circle of the doily, but I choose to finish it like this:
I’ll show it on my show tonight for a better look. ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥

Here you could see I took a Graphic 45 tag I had and die cut a sizzix butterfly. I cut the butterfly 3x from light chipboard and then cut one from kraftex to hold it altogether. I glued Tim’s mirror paper to the front and added an oval mirror in the middle with glossy accents.
Added a coat of gesso to the back and rubbed steel blue Inka Gold Metallic Rub to the embossed butterfly.
Added some roses and a kratex butterfly to the front, as well as added distress paint/gesso to the wood piece.
I love the back as much as the front. I also, sprayed the back and seam binding with Lindy’s Salt Water Taffy. Have a great week. ~♥Hugz, Zandra♥
