Bluebird & Azaleas Painting!

It's been a while since I got out my watercolors and painted something, but I had a really good reason to blow the dust off the ol' watercolor palette.  I asked Granny what she wanted for Christmas and she said she wanted a bluebird to match the Cardinal I painted her a while back.  I'm able to share this with you b/c there is no chance of Granny seeing this before Christmas!  Needless to say Granny doesn't get on the internet!
I painted this bluebird in a summer scene!  I love fuchsia azaleas and can't wait for spring to get here!

A Wedding Gift Box!

A friend of mine got married last month and I made this pretty little keepsake box for her, a matching card, and diamond trimmed mini photo frames (from Hobby Lobby).

Here are the ingredients for the card,
  • Aqua Mist cardstock - Papertrey Ink
  • White cardstock - Gina K Pure Luxury 80#
  • Faded text background stamp - Stampabilities
  • Aqua Mist ink - Papertrey Ink
  • Nestabilities square scallop die cut
  • Round Monogram stamp - 1-5/8" JustRite
  • Silver Dots - Mark Richards
  • Glasses stamp & sentiment - TPC Studio - Elegant Greetings
  • Scallop border punch - EK success
  • Clear 3D laquer (on glasses)
  • Angel Pink Ink - Memento
  • Silver embossing powder
  • Versamark pen

For these 2 cute litte frames I used the Aqua Mist cardstock and Justrite monogram stamp and my versamark ink pad to emboss their initials. I really intended this to be a nice placeholder instead of the image that came with the photo. She can keep it or put a nice wedding pic in it's place!


I printed these 3 words on my computer and used a sponge dauber to fill in with Aqua mist ink around the edges and Memento Angle Pink in the center.  Then embossed with silver on the little tweely.

The cardboard box came from Hobby Lobby.  I used a little wedding pack of embellishments (can't remember the brand).  I used PTI dot paper and some plain pink paper to wrap the box.  I used pink ribbon on the lid edge.  Somehow I didn't get a good shot of the sides of the box.  But I cut a label and stamped each side with a different shell stamp (from Flourishes) and embossed with silver and inked the edges with Aqua Mist, then used a silver dot on each end!

The cake was stamped onto Gina K cardstock with versamark ink.  (Cake stamp & sentiment - Paper Studio - from Hobby Lobby).  I embossed with silver and filled in with copics.  I cut it out and used pop dots to stick on top of pink label.  I also embossed the sentiment with silver.

The dress is part of the embellishment pack.  I went around the edges with Scribbles 3D paint in Shiny True Pink (walmart).
PS. sorry for the bad photo quality.

4x6 Box Template!

I have something to share with you today!  While crafting all of my Christmas goodies I found myself needing a box.  After searching for a while and not finding exactly what I needed I figured I'd just make one from scratch.  After a little work I came up with this template.  It's a 4x6 box 1" deep. I'll update this post to share photos after Christmas!  Below is a snapshot of the template made for 8.5x11 paper.  Here is the download link.... 4x6 Box Template by Tiffany Richards!  (Zip file contains .pdf & .png files)  PS. This is my first template!! =)  So, if I've made any mistakes please let me know so I can fix 'em up!!  See what I made with this box!!

I hope you find some use for it!  If you use if for anything, send me a pic and I'll post it to my blog!! =)

Been Busy Crafting!

I feel so bad for not having posted much lately, but I wanted you to know that I'm busy with lots of fun stuff up my sleeve! I'll be able to share some of it soon! But, some of it will have to wait til after Christmas b/c I'm crafting Christmas presents for my loved ones and they all read my blog! So you can see my perdicament (sp?)! =)

I thought I would share a few pictures I came across from last Christmas 2008 ...
This first photo is my 11' tree from last year!  It was Christmas everywhere you looked in my house last year! There wasn't one thing un-decorated!  Technically 2008 was our second Christmas in the cabin, but the first one with us living in it fully furnished and all.  2007 we were there but only had that red furnace and a blow up bed!

I made this yummy garlic cheese spread and then shaped it with my hands and stuck sliced almonds in to look like a pinecone, then finished it with rosemary sprigs!

This is me and my 3 girls!  From left to right; Emma (4 yrs), Isabelle (10 yrs), Francie (4 yrs)

While the family was there we grilled out and the girls got to have a little fun too! I let them really have at it for a few minutes, but I didn't want them to mess up their pretty Christmas dresses!! =)

Emma was really into it!  She did not want to let go!! =)
