Gift Wrap containers


Hi Everyone,

Todays project is made for Made by Momo's challenge and it is to make anything but a card. The blue one is a candy bar wrapper and the poem is from a joke poem that can be downloaded from the internet. sorry I can't remember where I got it.  I cut the snowflake with the snowflake sizzlet die with my big shot. The little box was made using a splitcoast stampers tutorial. I will be happy to get the gypsy update Nov 1st  then I will get the tags bags boxes and more free download. I am really excited about that one. I added a flower stamp and ribbon on them both, and a rhinestone in the flower center. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating everyone.

Paper: SU DSP
Ink: pretty in pink, regal rose

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!

Stamp Set: Inkadinkadoo Autumn set
Ink: SU expresso

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.

Snow Much Fun!

Hi Everyone,

It's nice and sunny out today but it is cool! I made this card for a couple of challenges. Winter Wonderland challenge is give it a vintage look and A Spoon full of Sugar challenge is winter wonderland. My card base is a white 5x7 and the first layer is cut at 5x7 and embossed with the cuttlebug folder snowflakes. the picture is an open stock that I used orchid opulence to destress the outside of after I ripped the edges.I added snowflake ribbon and 3 rhinestone purple brads. The sentiment is from the Pink Cricut Design winter stamp set. I used a spicka sparle pen to add extra on the snowflakes. It really is so pretty but the photo does not do it justice.Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creations 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.

Flower Thank You!

Hi Everyone,

I wanted to share with you this card I made for a very sweet neighbour of mine. She was going through her stash and getting rid of things she didn't use any more. Well I was fortunate enough for her to think of me when it came to her card stock. She gave me tons of heavy white and cream colored CS. I was just so thrilled I wanted to espress my gratitude to her. I am a paper horder so this is one of the best gifts anyone could give me. Thank You Hazel! The card base is 4x4 scored at 4". I added the border using the border punch. I stamped the flower first onto the white cardstock and then onto the DSP and cut out around the flower and glued it to the white image. Certainly celery was added to the leaves and to finish off the card I used a pink ribbon and added the thank you stamp. It was a very quick and easy card to make. I am entering this card into My Pink Stamper challenge. The challenge is to make something for someone so I thought this would be good to use for the challenge.

Thank you for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone.

Hi everyone,

Todays card was made for Emma's My Creative Time challenge. This weeks challenge was to make a shape card using create a critter and include the color orange. The orange is in the worm and his antena. I used my gypsy to weld the apples together and cut it at 6" the worm was cut at 2". The label was sized to cut with the apple so it would fit nicely, although it is a bit bigger than I thought it would be. The sentiment is from the Pink Design stamps everyday.
