Guest Designer Trudy Sjolander's Projects

Hi Everyone!
True :D here.

I used to be a regular on the Creative Charms team so when Midori asked if I would like to be a guest designer this month, I jumped at the chance! I LOVE Creative Charms!
Basic Grey spoiled me by sending me a huge box of their latest releases to play with. They won't be in the stores for shipment until October so I'm a very lucky girl to have them! Luckier still is how perfectly the "Picadilly" papers match Creative Charm's -Amber Vintage Flower Buttons and Amber Gradient Gem Stickers.

Ranger Ink also sent me some fun stuff to play with including some Perfect Pearls Sunflower Sparkle Mist which I sprayed on the entire card, concentrating more on the floral grouping and embellishments. Gotta love that extra sparkle!
Remember, you can click on the pictures to enlarge for a closer look. :)

My next project is done with Basic Grey's "Little Black Dress" collection which will be on the shelves in October also. See how awesome Creative Charm's - Vintage Velvet Poppies go with it? I removed the white brad from the center of the larger one and replaced it with a Grey Vintage Pearl Brad. I also added a few Black Gradient Pearl Stickers to the label.

I almost forgot to mention the pretty Black and Silver Dotted Leaves that came in one of the past Kits of the Month. I love the Kits of the Month because there are sometimes different items that are only available in the kits. ;)

My final card was done for a Clean And Simple challenge that starts tomorrow for one of my other design teams. I thought I would share it here a day early! :)
I illustrated the "Fuzzy Ducky" clear stamp for Clear Dollar Stamps.

See the sweet little cornflower blue flowers he's holding? I had to keep it clean and simple but I didn't think a single flower that matches his flowers would hurt. 
Here is a True :D tip: Buy extra white and clear embellishments so you can color them with your favorite medium to match what ever your little hearts desire. 
In this case, I used a blue Copic marker on a White Sparkle Flower for the exact color I needed. I also hit the center gem with a touch of yellow Copic.

Well...that's it for me today. 
Thanks Midori and girls for letting me pop back in and play awhile!

I would love it if you left me a bit of love below! :)

For a complete list of products used on these projects, head over to MY BLOG.
I am also giving away a Basic Grey's Picadilly Page kit before it is even available to the general public plus some extra goodies from my stash so come on over! :)
