Hi everyone,

I am sure you are all as busy as I am right now, but I am enjoying myself.   My card base is 5x7 and I used 1 1/2 scallop square punch to make my background and added stitching around the squares. The ribbon strips at the bottom of the card is from the dollar store. I used wall decor and more to  cut the chair at 4". I drew the pads on the chair and colored it in with copics ,again adding stitching. Tilda is also colored with copics and I added stickles to the lace and ribbons in her hair.I added the metal gems with the irock in the center of the squares. The prima floweres were painted with copics and a pink glitter pen. I added a brad in the center. I then added a wobble onto Tilda and put her on the chair.  Thank you all for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone.

Jolly Holiday's

Hi Everyone,

Todays card was made for the Just Magnolia challenge white plus one other color. The card base is 5.5x4.25 and I used the eyelet border punch along the bottom of the front and back.. I didn't measure the layers but I used my big shot with the cuttlebug snowflake folder. On the top layer I used stickles and green dots. Sorry again the photo is not showing how pretty it really is. the bottom layer is only the snowflakes no glitter. I have to learn the names of the Tilda stamps so I can at least let you know the one I used. She is colored with copics. I used the cuttlebug on the ribbon but it didn't show up much at all. Finished off the card with a bow, green gems and some stitching. Thank you for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone!

Let It Snow!

I have used a combination of items on this card. The card base is 5x7 with a layer 6x4.75 DSP. I used a magnolia christmas stamp. I put a lot of dazzling diamonds on the image but the photo is not showing it has any. So sorry you can't see how pretty it really is.  I used create a critter for the little rudolph. I drew in the eye and mouth adding a red rhinestone for the nose. Added more rhinestones in top right corner and on the sentiment. I finished it off with a sheer ribbon with sparkles in it. I am adding this card into eight challenges.

A Taste of Christmas

Hi everyone,

Today's card is a very simple one. The card  base is 5x7, the layer is 4.75x6.75. The DSP was so pretty that I didn't add any more images to it. I did take a stylus and dry embossed some of the area's to make it show up better but the photo doesn't give it justce. I also applied some dazzling diamonds to the center pods but it doesn't show up well either. I added the ribbon and the sentiment is again from Pink by Design. I am entering this card into the Totally Gorjuss challenge, they are asking for traditional Christmas colors. Anything Goes Challenge is emboss it. I did use the stylus to dry emboss so I think it should apply to this card. Elephantastic Challenge is make a card with a butterfly or a Christmas card. Thanks you for stopping by for a visit, happy Creating everyone!

Paper: very vanilla. Recollections Christmas stack

The ABC Challenge is H for holidays. A Spoonful of Sugar challenge is snow/snowflakes. The card base is 5x7 and the snowflake layer is 6.75x4.75.

I then painted some glitter all over it and added some stars. My reindeer is cut from Christmas cheer cartridge at 5". The top layer was cut in white and I used my copics to color  him in. I added a bit of white on the antlers and black gel pen on the face. The modern lable punch was used to cut the sentiment out. I then added the metal brads using the irock.

The Season Of Giving

Hi everyone,

I have made this card for  for More Than Favors challenge, Lexi's Creations challenge, Incy Wincy Designs challenge, Craft You Passion challenge, Iris's Spot challenge, Dottie's World challenge and the theme for them is anything goes.  Charisma Cardz challenge theme is Christmas. Crafty Cardmakers challenge is stitching. The card base is white but for some reason it looks more on the pink side in the photo. I am really quite please with the magnolia Tilda coloring. I find the more I use the copics the better it seems to work on my images.  I colored the Magnolia Tilda and the poinsetta stamp with copic markers. I used stickles on some of the background to give it some sparkle. The snowflake is a sizzlet die and cut  using the big shot. The snowflake didn't seem to show up like I thought it should so I used stitching to make it pop a bit. I also used the stitching around the card layer.I like using doodles and ribbon on my cards so very seldom will you not see any. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating everyone!

You are my Sunshine

Hi Everyone,

I made a couple of cards the same today but changed the faces. The paper was already decorated and all I needed to do was add a tourquise layer behind it to make the picure pop. I then punched a circle and added a face to it. The top face was the baby faces and the bottom one was the princess faces both from Peachy Keen Stamps. I used my irock and added metal stones on the flower centers and the birds eye. The stamp was Scrappy moms stamp. This was so easy and quick and I think it looks really cute. I am entering this card into the ABC challenge this week and it is using flowers. Thanks for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone!

Fall Leaves

Hi everyone,

The sun is shining here today and it is a beautiful fall day out. I love this time of year not too hot and not too cold. Just perfect! lol! Fantabulous Cricut has a challenge and we need to make a project with at least one leaf. I made this card very simple and plain for a friends birthday. Men don't like to much on thier cards so this is perfect for him. The base is cut at 5x7 and the inside layer is cut at 5x5.5. I stamped the leaves with expresso ink. I used my irock for the metal orange brads. I distressed the outside of the kraft CS with the expresso ink. Easy peasy card to make, but I think it still looks good even though it is very plain. Thanks for stopping in to visit me. Happy creating everyone!

Sweet 'n Sassy

Erin Lee Creative is having a Laughy Taffy Sassy Challenge. LOL! That is a mouthful! I also used the sketch from Stamps R US challenge. The card base is 5x7 scored at 5". The second layer is a texture paper cut at 3x4 and the tan layer I used the paisley cuttlebug folder for the background and it is cut 2.75x3.75. I cut the girl out with my Rock Princess cartridge and all layers were cut at 2.75. The pillow was cut from the everyday paper dolls cartridge. I added some prima flowers and gems in the centre of them. I had picked up a rhinestone word hello on sale and cut the top part of the E off it was double layers and used it for the gemstones top right corner and bottom left corner. I did put some glitter on the flowers, crown, shoes, picture corners but the photo really didn't show there was any. I finished it off with ribbon and faux stitching around the card. I think it turned out really cute and sassy! Thanks for stopping by and visiting, happy creating everyone.

Dinosaur Birthday!

Hi Everyone,

Emma at My Creative Time challenge this week is a combination of doing a RAOK and using Every Day Paper Dolls cart make a card or project using an animal.  For my RAOK My sister is deaf and they have a new deaf church that was looking for all kinds of donations that would help them get started. I donated lots of printer paper, card paper, DSP etc. They were so thrilled to receive it all and it also made me feel good doing it for them. Now for my project I made the cute little dinosaur using Paper Doll Dressup. I used my gypsy and welded two of them together. The card base and the layer were cut at 5". I used white gel pen to make the marking show up on the dinosaur and added some neutral thread as a bow. It was one of the simplist cards I have made so far.

Thanks for stopping by and visiting me, happy creating everyone.

Sprinkles of Fun!

My friend Cat Over at Cat's Creative Corner told me I should join in on the Color Me Copic challenge b/c I had more copics to use than she did. I used a 4x4 white for the card base and used the cuttlebug folder textiles to the background. I added DSP cut at 3" for the green layer. I used the tinkerbell cartridges with the crikits gel pens and then cut after using the cricut. I used glitter paint for the wings and the dust. I found out you really need to line up the cut your doing properly to get the cut just right. The sentiment is from Scrappy Mom's and then punched out with the large oval scallop. I added some rhinestones as a finishing touch.

Thank you for stopping by to visit me. Happy creating everyone.
