Hi there! This is Kimberly from Kimberly's Crafty Creations ... KimberlyAnn207.blogspot.com. I have two amazing daughters and a brand new granddaughter. I've been married for 15 years and live in Central New Jersey. My favorite thing to do is crafting ... Cardmaking, scrapbooking, etc. I just started making shadowboxes recently and find I really enjoy them too! If I can get my Copic markers out, I'm a happy girl!
Today, I'm honored to guest post here at Little Panda Crafts. I'm going to share with you a card, with a coordinating Shadowbox, that I made for my older daughter, Jenna.
To begin, here is my card ... It features the lovely Queen of Hearts Marci stamp from La La Land Crafts. I used a digi stamp on X-Press it paper and colored her with Copic Markers. I used E00, E21 and R20 for her face, E17 and E18 for her hair. I used R35, R37 and R39 for the reds, N0 and N1 for the grays and Y23 for the golds.
I started by using a red card blank from American Crafts. I added a black layer that I embossed using an Anna Griffin Embossing Folder. Next came the pretty papers from My Minds Eye. I added some black ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon, three hand-quilled roses using a La La Land Crafts dies and three black Martha Stewart pearls.
I used Whispers black opaque Embossing Powder for the Happy Valentines Day on the front.
Inside, I stamped again using Zing Glitter Embossing Powder in red. I added a brad from Michael's Recollections, signed it in a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and that's it! All done! It'll be on its way to sunny California ! I notice that the glitter embossing powder isn't perfect but I suppose that's all part of the homemade idea ...
Next we have the coordinating shadowbox. This is also for my daughter, Jenna ... She has always been a huge Alice in Wonderland fan so I thought this was just perfect for her :)
I started by gluing the frame together and then painted it with FolkArt Blue Pearl Metallic acrylic paint. On the hearts across the top I put huge amounts of Martha Stewarts Sugar Cube Glitter acrylic paint. I mod podged a 6x6 paper from Prima Marketings Firefly collection to the base. I've been saving that paper for a "special occasion" so I'm glad I finally used it! lol
While all that was drying, I colored up Marci and my very first Luka! On Marci I used E00, E21 and R11 on her face. Her hair is E30 and E53. Marci's dress is colored in B32, B34 and C00.
On Luka I used E00, E21 and R11 for his face. His hair is E42 and E53. His adorable suit is colored in BV00, BV04, BG11, BG15, YG13 and YG17.
I painted the heart in the center and cut two Heart Doilys from La La Land Crafts. I also used LLLC's Rolled Flower dies, the Heart Border dies and the Leaf dies ... Sorry, I can't remember the exact names. I topped it off with one of LLLC's adorable butterflies!
