Welllll....I've been on vacation ALL week and finally got to spend a little time in my craft room on Friday! I made some candles for Valentine's Day that I took to my Flea Market booth. I hope someone takes a shine to 'em!
This last one really isn't a Valentine candle, but I still like it!
So I was using the sweet freebie from the Freebie Progressive Challenge over at The Outlawz to make this easel card. I thought I would stamp the sentiment on a red die cut I've had in my "leftover" stash for awhile and I used white chalk ink. It really didn't show up so I re-inked my stamp with black and stamped it again. I didn't see it at first, but then I realized I had made kind of a shadow stamp with the white! You can just barely see it in this picture, it mostly shows up by the flourish at the bottom:
Here is my card:
The beautiful paper and the outside stamp are freebies from Cardmaking and Paper Crafts magazine. The inside stamp is from Touche'. I just LOVE freebies, don't you?
I had some time to play with the cute image I got from the Freebie Progressive challenge over at The Outlawz this month. I have had it colored for a little while but just got my card made and posted to the challenge in the nick of time! The cute image is from Di's Digis.
I've colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers and added Buffalo Snow for dimensional snow and glitter on the little mouse's Santa hat.
I really did get this done in time for the November challenge, but every time I tried to upload my images, my computer would just wink at me at sit there! Here it is a week later and finally SUCCESS!
Hello! I hope you had a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving! There is always something to be thankful for! Today I am thankful for a new, fun challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. We are sponsored this week by the awesome and our theme is "Make a Tag" I used the cute "4 Snowmen Tag" from Bugaboo:
I found a tag diecut that I had left from a previous project, which is a Cricut cut from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More, a scrap of Christmas paper, a fun candy cane brad and some cute ribbon. Oh, there's a paper doily in there, too. I love using up scraps! (Cause I have way too much of them crammed here and there!) Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown!
Hello Everyone! Today I have a frame to share with you that I made for our challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Our theme this time around is "Winter - anything that makes you think of winter". I always think of snow and I love snowmen, so this was a no brainer for me!
I found this sweet saying on the internet, author unknown, and loved it! I know this is hard to read in the picture, it says "Snowflakes are one of nature's most fragile things, but look what they can do when they stick together."
The fonts are Elizabeth and Cricut Font. I made my background paper with a rubber stamp and white embossing powder. The snowman is a Cricut cut and this frame is a $1 find at a yard sale.
I added some simple snowflakes, also Cricut cuts, from white glitter paper.
Of course I needed some snow, so I put in some "Buffalo Snow Flakes" at the bottom. A few flakes are drifting around, though!
It's really hard to get a good picture of these frames because of the glare and reflection, but I love how this one turned out!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll pop over and join us!
Hello! Today I have a vintage Thanksgiving card to share with you for our new challenge at My Sheri Crafts. Sandy has challenged us to Create a card featuring a Pilgrim, Indian, Cornucopia, Pumpkin, Turkey, or Pie .
I found this cute vintage picture in my files from CWC.. It made up a super quick and easy card!
I added a little bit of glue on some of the leaves and the hatband, the used a pretty gold embossing powder.
The poem on the image is this:
A Pumpkin I bring you for Thanksgiving Day,
With wishes that plenty may e'er with you stay.
I added a strip of cloth trim and a scrap of leaf paper and there you go!
Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you will check out the DT's creations and join us this week!
This week at My Sheri Crafts Peach challenged us with the theme "Creepy Crawly - Make a Halloween project featuring creepy, crawly and/or flying critters!"
I've used and image from Bugaboo called "Goth Girl".
Just for fun, I colored her with my sparkle gel pens, except for her skin. For that I used a LG2 Spectrum Noir marker. The spider web and tag are Cricut cuts and I used the pen feature to write the sentiment on the tag and the inside.
I love that font for a Halloween card!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come on over and join us at My Sheri Crafts!
I got to use up some scraps for this one and found some super cute cork stickers that I've had in my stash and forgotten about! I've used tiny buttons for the juggling balls, also from my ages old stash, and colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers.
Hello! I have a new card to share and I love how it turned out. I made it for this week's challenge at Tuesday Throwdown, but due to internet trouble I wasn't able to my sponsor image downloaded in time for the challenge post! I'm telling you, I LOVE our new house, but I HATE our internet service here! But I'm trying to hang in there because fiber optic is on the horizon. Just 6 to 8 more months, they tell me.
Anyway, our sponsor is
The challenge theme is "Festive Pumpkins". I obviously didn't follow that theme, but I used a pre-colored image from our sponsor's Western Combos set and 3 of the digital papers that came with it. I love this set and I believe I'll be using them quite a bit!
The border is a Martha Stewart border punch. The metal star is cut from a metal garland. The card it's wound on is blank, so I have no idea who the manufacturer is.
I used 2 stamps from Close to my Heart to finish it out.
My apologies to Doodle Pantry for not getting a project included in the challenge this week!
Hello again! It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and I have such a fun project to share! Sandy has challenged us with the theme "First Day of Fall - Make a Fall Card or Project". The other day I was at Hobby Lobby and found some super cute "Pumpkin" blocks that said "FALL" on them and I a-l-m-o-s-t bought them, but decided not to. That very evening when I was catching up on email, I found My Scrap Chick had a cutting file to make the very same boxes with paper and right now it's on sale for $1(I paid $5)! I was so happy! I bought it right away and got started cutting!
Hello! I'm glad you're here because it's time for a new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown! We are sponsored this week by Robyn's Fetish and our theme is "Leaves". I've used our sponsor's image "Basket of Apples" for my card:
I've colored it with Spectrum Noir markers, cut it out with a Spellbinders die and inked it up with Tim Holtz distress inks. The stamps are from Pink by Design's "Bountiful Blessings" stamp set. The background paper is from The Paper Studio and the leaf brads are from Recollections. The inside "I'm thankful for you" is from the same Pink By Design set and the Happy Birthday is from Close to My Heart. Well thanks for stopping by and I sure hope to see you over at Tuesday Throwdown! Have a great, crafty week! I've entered this card here: Crafty Card Makers - birthday Deep Ocean Challenge - favorite season (I love Fall!)Aud Sentiments - anything with a sentiment
Welcome to my blog today! It's time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts and Sue has challenged us to create something for Christmas with at least 3 embellishments. I've made this super cute and easy card with the Cricut "Christmas Cards" cartridge.
It was so easy to make and I was able to use all scraps for it. My embellishments are 3 rhinestones, 1 ribbon and bordering with a silver gel pen. This was so fun I think I'm going to try some more with other papers!
Thanks for stopping by and now please head over to My Sheri Crafts and check out all the other great projects and join us!
Hello! Today I have a sweet easel card to share with you for our new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown. We are sponsored by
and our theme is "Easel Cards". I've used our sponsor's image "Blanket Flower"
I colored the image with Spectrum Noir markers, then inked up the edges and mounted it on a Spellbinder's oval. The card base is Cricut's "Folk Art Tulip Card" and I welded a square over all the fancy cuts to get a plain base. The papers are from Die Cuts With a View "Pocket Full of Posies" 6x6 pad. The bow is my first hand-tied triple bow!
The inside sentiment I made with the Write then Cut feature.
This scripture sentiment is from Just Rite's "Cast All Your Cares" stamp set.
I love how this one turned out and it's going to a good friend who is going through a rough patch right now.
Hello! It's Saturday! WooHoo!!! I hope you have plans for a great weekend. Part of what makes this weekend great is a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts! This week Glenda has challenged us with the theme of "Travel - Make a card/project with a mode of travel..car, truck, plane, etc" Not a travel theme, a MODE of travel. I used this great bicycle cut from Cricut and did a little inking:
I just have to say, I LOVE how this one turned out!!! The mat and tag are also Cricut cuts. The "Birthday Girl" stamp is from K Andrews "Take the Cake" set. The awesome papers are from K&CO.
I handmade the double bow from some old sheer ribbon in my stash and used a little bit of gold wire to attach the tag.
