Dana Tatar and Erin Reed both have great projects to share today .
Dana Tatar has a fun mixed media canvas.

Hi! Dana Tatar here today sharing a canvas that I created with some of my favorite Susan K. Weckesser products and several stencils provided by The Crafter's Workshop. This canvas measures 6x6 inches so I selected several mini (6x6 inch) stencils; Rib Cage, Beaded Curtain, Positive and Heartstrings Frags for this project.

I cut a vibrant section from a piece of Live In Color patterned paper and added some stamping using the Susan K. Weckesser A Little Bit Washi Stamp Set. I added more patterns to the background of this canvas using the Mini Beaded Curtain and Mini Positive stencils with a black pen and yellow Clearsnap Smooch.

I applied whipped spackle over the Mini Rib Cage stencil and then added a black crackle heart using the Mini Heartstrings Frags stencil. While the crackle paint was still wet, I sprinkled some pink glitter over the top for a pop of color.
I finished this canvas with a multicolored bow and some Diviney song lyrics that read:

Your skeleton is heaven but your heart's pitch black.
And I like ya like that.
Thanks for stopping by today! I'd also like to thank The Crafter's Workshop for the amazing selection of stencils!

Erin Reed has a lovely card that is so very special. 
A mommy group friend of mine just lost her mother, so as a gesture I made this card for her for our group to all sign.  I wanted to make this feminine and soft, to show our love for her, like giving her a hug with a card.
I used lots of layers here, the bottom layer of the card is a mauve colored cardstock that I then took the wonderful Vineyard TCW stencil and outlined the edges of the paper with brown ink creating my own patterned paper.

I then added in some other colors of cardstock and papers, but then I crated this little frame with the TCW Hand Drawn Frames Stencil.  I used a gold glitter paste to fill in the stencil as a mask, then after it dried I cut it out to size (about the size of an ATC).

I then took the the same cardstock as the little gold frame and stamped the wonderful pennant banner stamp from Susan K. Weckesser in brown ink.  I cut out the banner and left it in section of 3 or 4 triangles and then tucked them in and around the card as seen in the picture below.
