My Recent Projects


 So I have been making projects just have not posted. I'm lagging man! Lagging! Anywho, here are my current projects. I have so many more to make! All before Christmas! Aye! I have not had time! I might just have to take my projects to my dad's and work on them there! LOL! k, here they are!

A little box I bought from the $1 Tree. I used black acrylic paint and gold paint.  I cut and punched out the eyebrows, eyes, mustache and nose. I used chalk for the cheeks and also use a feather, bling and gold trim. 
I actually found this perfect to store my tiny little nutcrackers. I forgot about them because I had wrapped them in tissue paper and were in with all my other nutcrackers so it was easy to lose them. BUT now I won't! Jajajaja!

Here is the other mini album that I made using one of those $1 minis.

Here are some little gift tags I made. They are so freaking cute!

Halloween Series: Part 3

Hello. Well, I have been absent from all my social sites for a pretty long time. I had a family emergency and am completely exhausted and drained.  My 82 year old father was hospitalized with pneumonia and at his age it is very dangerous.  After a week at the hospital my dad finally came home but is still very weak and I have been taking care of him; I have been helping him get his strength back and slowly but surely he is getting there.  Hence, I have not been crafting or had the time to come and visit. =( I miss it and I hope you guys understand and be patient with me. Hopefully soon things will get somewhat normal.

So now that I have given you my current life story, lets get on with the 3rd part of my Halloween series.

 This is the last of my Halloween cards...for right now.  I used scraps from the last two cards and it measures 4x5 1/2.
 The vintage cat and sentiment stamp I bought a year ago. I used my embossing pad and black embossing powder to add some dimension to the cat. As for the sentiment, I just used archival black ink.
I kept the inside of the card simple like the other cards that I made.  I left plenty of space for the person to write what they would like.

I hope you liked the card and I hope to have another video sometime next week.

Also don't forget about my giveaway! I will be announcing the winners on the 12th of October! You still got time to enter! Go check out the video and follow the instructions.

Thanks for stopping by and see you guys later!

Wub you lots! Susi

Halloween Series: Part 2

Here we go again! LOL! Here is the second card I make for the series.

 I used another greeting farm image and pretty much used the same technique as the previous card.
 I used dimensional dots to pop up the little witch.
 The cat and the sentiment are also a dimensional sticker.  I also added googly eye to make the card look more dimensional.
The inside of the card is nice and simple.

Thanks for stopping by and see you guys next week!

wub, Susi ^-^

Sushi's Halloween Series and Giveaway Information

Hi guys! Well let me start by talking about the giveaway. I promise that it's going to happen! What's been holding it up? I wanted to have my images ready to go (they are ready) but I had problems with Pay-Pal, which should be cleared up in two weeks (that's what they said). But I have decided not to wait for that. I will be doing the giveaway now than later. So you guys who read my blog and FB will get the info first! Woohoo! =) I was going to make a vid but didn't get a chance to make one today but I had to say something! There will be 3 winners! Yes, 3!  So here are what they will be: One-the 3 DDLM cards that I made, two-the 3 'regular' cards that I made and three-a print of my DDLM painting (which is almost finished). The rules? Well, I think I know what I want you guys to do but I'll wait to list them when I make the giveaway video on YT, FB and here. Stay tuned for that! Hopefully it will be up by tomorrow.

O.K...so that's that. Now for the next announcement! Again, you guys who read my blog and FB will be the first to hear about this! LOL! Aye, you guys are so special! I will be doing a Halloween Series! I'm super excited about that! I have all my Halloween stuff out and I want to make everything under the sun! I'm not sure if I will be making one video a week or more than that but I think I will do them until I run out of ideas! Jajaja! I already recorded 3 process videos and edited one, which I will post after I finish writing on my blog, FB and Linda's and my Spanish blog. Now for the pictures from the first video that will be posted. Here we go!

 I used a digital image that I bought a while back. This was the first time that I used it and I wub how it came out!
 I used my video, "No Copics no Problem," tutorial to color her in and then used stickles to glitter her up.
 The collection I used was from last year that I got on clearance.  The spider was a ring that I cut up to use it as a embellishment.
This is the inside of the card.  The spiderweb border was a sticker! It's a big deal because I didn't know it was a sticker! I only found out because some of the backing was coming off! LOL!

Well, hope you guys enjoyed the card and hope that you will enjoy the rest of the series! Thanks for stopping by! =) Hope to see you guys for the giveaway post and continue to watch my Halloween series!

I'm Going Nuts!

I'm hating my pay-pal right now! Seriously! I go to get everything ready for the Sushi Dolls and I have other things to do before I can even set that up! Ughhh! So then I think of doing etsy but there again I need some things that I can't get until tomorrow! Ughhh! Estupid! =( So who knows when it will be up! WHHHHY!!! So that explains why I have not done anything else. I have been trying to get this going pero nada. So right now I think I'm going to clean up and get things started for a swap I'm in and my kids swap. Sheesh! I could have been doing that if I knew that I this whole paypal thing wasn't going to happen! =P Anyway just wanted to touch bases. =(

Also go check out Lina's new ning site. I just joined and so far I'm still learning how it works. She has a lot of groups on there and it's free!

August Mixed Media Contest


 Hola mis peeps! So after much tribulation, I decided to make another project but this time really follow the rules! =D I had painted 3 8x10 CANVAS that had a sunset with Dia de los Muertos pumpkins thinking I would be able to enter them but as it turns out I couldn't.  *the violin playing in the background* So I just thought to myself that I would make a page.  But then Bona announced a mixed media tag swap and I already had ideas running through my head! So why not? I'm hitting 2 birds with one stone!  The sponsor for this month's contest is Faber Castell Design Memory Craft!  I also followed ALL the contest rules. ALL 1-9! Woot woot!!!! O.K enough babbling. Off to my tag!

The inspiration came from one of my besties pins on Pinterest.  From there I drew myself an image and then paper pieced her (Yes, I hand drew her myself.) For the background I used acrylic paints, stamps with archival ink, hand-made glimmer mist, made the clouds with my hand-made stencil and finally a FABER-CASTELL PITT ARTIST PEN (f.y.i I ADORE these pens! I have been using them on my paintings and my mixed media projects. They don't smear or smudge!!!!!)
