Thanksgiving Diorama 2015

It's time for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts and it's gonna' be another fun one!!!!  Sheri has challenged us this week to "Include a Tag Shaped Item in Your Project."  The past few years I've made a diorama at Thanksgiving and Christmas, so I thought this was the perfect time to make one for Thanksgiving.  

 I just love these swirly cuts from Phrases and Celebrate with Flourish from Cricut!  The leaves are also Cricut cuts from Flower Shoppe.  The tags are a Cricut cut also, but now I can't find them in the subscription search to let you know which cartridge. I guess I was lucky to find them in the first place!

The gold ribbon came from Wal-Mart.  I've had it for a LONG time!

After lots of inking, gluing and other fun stuff, voila'! I love it!

I had lots of messy fun inking these tiny little leaves, but I really wanted them to be multi-colored like most of the real ones.  I like how they turned out!  

I hope you'll join us this week at My Sheri Crafts!  See you there!

Jo's Scrap Shack - anything goes
Hiding In My Craftroom - freestyle

Halloween Treat Bags

Isn't he a cutie?  There is also a p, a cat, a bat and a spider.  I won't be making the spider, but hopefully there will be more pictures coming of the others.  I need 4 treat bags, so these are perfect!

A Wobbly Penguin Birthday

This week at Twisted Thursday the twist is "Birthday Card"  Now how easy is that???    Our sponsor again is

I used their "Let It Snow" Penguin for my super simple card:

He's colored with Spectrum Noir alcohol markers.  The original stamp says "Let It Snow" above the penguin, but I just didn't use that and used him as a penguin who is super excited about a birthday....

 and made him a wobble!  I made my own "action wobble" with fine wire and wrapped it around my needle nose pliers.  It works pretty well!  My grandson played with him while I got the rest of the card ready, so it's kid approved!  LOL

Come on over and join us for this super simple twist this week!

My Sheri Pink & Pretty

The challenge this time around at My Sheri Crafts is "Pink & Pretty".  I love that theme!

I used some fantastic freebies I got with my latest issue of "Card Making and Paper Craft" magazine.  The stamp and embossing folder were both included.  I mounted the stamp on 2 Spellbinder's diecuts, cut out a "Hope" ribbon, added some gems and a bow and there it is!

It doesn't show up very well in the picture, but the ribbon is cut twice, once in silver foil cardstock and once in the pink.  The silver shows up in real life and ties in with the silver gems.

I hope you'll come on over and join us!

My First ATC!

Hello!  This week at The Outlawz Twisted Thursday our theme is "Anything Goes With A Twist" and the twist is "Artist Trading Cards"!  Our sponsor is the ever fabulous 

I've never made an ATC before, so I was kind of intimidated by this oh-so-simple simple concept of a 2 1/2" x 3 1/2 " tag!  But, I did it!
I colored this cute "Hello Kitty" digi from our sponsor, then grabbed up some scraps of paper on my desk and went to town!  I have 2 pieces of embossed paper, the lavender base is embossed with an Embossabilities music note folder and the border is one that came with my last "Card Making and Paper Craft" magazine.  Gotta love those freebies!!!

I used the red feather because that fancy phone reminded me of those old, delicate, fancy phones in the old black and white movies and when I thought of that I thought of the feather boa house robes the ladies wore and those high heeled house shoes with the feathery puffs on them.  Funny what triggers your memories!

Come on over and check out all the fabulous inspiration from the rest of the team.  See you there!
