I had done this about 6 or 7 years ago and had it in my own room since I LOVE winnie the pooh!! Everytime someone came in my moms house and saw my room they always questioned my mom as to how they thought her kids were grown up... haha guess it made the room look like it belonged to a small child.. which is why it was very fitting that when I decided to move in with my now husband that the dresser go to one of my dear friends little girls who adores pooh!! She loved it so much that she used to sit in front of it and lean in and give the characters kisses.. very cute!!
She just turned 4 and is ready to move onto a princess themed room soon so may paint a new scene for her on a new dresser and trade for it as my sons room is done in winnie the pooh now and his toddler furniture which we already purchased since we got such a good deal is pooh too so it will be fitting for him until he insists on something else.
I actually had lost these photos but god love my dad for keeping record of EVERYTHING I ever made for him or gave him a picture of... he had this picture on his computer so I stole it from him to post here.
It took about a month to complete working on it here and there after work every day... it was a colouring book picture that I found that I hand drew by eye from the picture onto the dresser and then painted. I was very pleased with how it turned out.
A cute little note card. I had just gotten this new stamp set and HAD to try it out right away but didn't really have a particular project in mind.. I also had a roller stamp background that I had bought for 50 cents at a flea market that I hadn't used either so I was goofing with it on a small piece of scrap card which ended up being the background behind my image! :) I like how this turned out. I added a bit of crystal laquer to the flower centers.
So I wasn't totally happy with my glitter card since the I didn't stick the diecut down very good so some glitter got under the left edge and lifted the diecut so I stamped this snowman and layered it on top.... still not sure I like it but oh well!!
This was done for a challenge on the PCP website for back to basics with stampendous. It is all glitter for the background and it was supposed to be stickers but I used a die cut I made with my craft robo a few years ago that I had laying around.

Okay so I was SO disappointed with the pictures and I haven't seen my friend yet to give her this card so I actually spent lots of time attempting to get the sparkle on this card.... well this is as close as it gets in a picture I'm sure now.... still doesn't quite show it but at least you can see SOME of it now!! Original pictures are deleted and new ones up so if you read this post before and are thinking these are different pictures than the ones you saw you're not going crazy they are different!! haha oh... in order to see what I'm talking about though you do have to click on the pictures to see a more close up view!!
I have to say I LOVE how this card turned out!! The pictures do NOT do it justice at all. It actually has lots of subtle sparkle on all the layers that I added with my gel pens and the paper is papertemptress sparkly paper which I ADORE!!! I wish I could get the sparkle to show up in the pictures as you'd all be blown away by this paper!!
The sentiment is mounted in some hardware I found at the dollar store and then coated with crystal laquer to make it look like it has a little glass over it.
This card is very 3-dimensional!!
The image is a print and cut file I got from http://www.mywishcraft.blogspot.com/ and done on my craftrobo.
Luanne has some wonderful print and cuts!!
So I totally CASEd this card from Melanie Muenchinger (the designer of this stamp sold at Gina K. Designs). I did change a few things though (of course). I didn't use any ribbon, instead I used paper inked with some ancient page grey (same as the back layer). I also highlighted my leafy branches from my cuttlebug with some oyster twinkling H2O's as well as coating the rose with it. I LOVE sparkle!!! :)
I loved how this card turned out so much that I felt it worthy to give to my favourite craft shop owner (and friend) Dejah for a double celebration of her 40th birthday and the stores (Carousel Rubber Stamps in Dartmouth, NS) 15th birthday. She had a demo day for this celebration which was FANTASTIC btw!! :) I love her demo days!!
This one is pretty self-explanatory. Copper EP on ivory with some copper ink sponged around the edges of the layer and the card.
I did a bunch of these up to have on hand for all-occasions that you just need a card for last minute.
I made this for my father-in-law. He is not very good at drinking enough water and has run into some problems because of it so I figured if he had something to put on his waterbottle to flavour it up a bit it might encourage him to drink a little more. :)
This is only a section of the stamp. I had bought this while DH and I were honeymooning in Baddeck, NS. It is SO pretty there!! I was definately made fun of for having to buy a stamp as a souvenir on our honeymoon but it was worth it since it's such a gorgeous stamp and very easy to colour!!
