Hi all so I saw that Drew was having a challenge over on his blog for a Christmas card using thin layers. Well you know I have been into Christmas cards lately so I had to enter his challenge. Here is the card I made...
I love the colors! I used the Cosmo Cricket 8" x 8" Wonderland Pad, It has some really awesome muted colors for Christmas. I then used the Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge for the two reindeer's. The eyes are from Peachy Keen Stamps. Very simple card, but I like the way it turned out :) Ok well have a great rest of the weekend and Happy Crafting!

Episode 38 - Glitter Christmas

Hello everyone! :) Ok so I didn't get a chance to upload my video yesterday as I had stated. I went to Target and bought the new DS game Crafting Mama, I am such a game geek lol :) So I got wrapped up in playing that and totally forgot about the video. I filmed it tonight so I finally have it up now. I tried a new technique, I learned in the Paper Crafts magazine Nov/Dec 2010 issue. You make glitter borders with double sided tape, not that this is really a new technique. I just loved the look of it. I decided to make a Christmas card, because for some reason I have really gotten into a major Christmas mood. Maybe it had something to do with seeing all the cool new Christmas stuff at Walmart lol :) Well anyway here are the measurements for today's card...

Bright Blue card base - 5" x 10"
Green - 4 3/4" x 43/4"
Red - 4 7/8" x 4 7/8"
White - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"

I hope you enjoy the video :) Oh and also while I was filming we had a thunderstorm roll through so you will hear thunder and very heavy rain in the background lol :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Papercraft Star Challenge 18 ~ Entry :)

Hi all I hope you are having a awesome week so far, it feels like it is just moving right along :) Here is the card I made for the Papercraft Star Challenge 18. The theme is Thank you, with a few requirements: i.e Thank you project, Dry Embossing, Cricut cut or Die cut, also has to have metal. So for my card I did a "Thanks Sew Much!"

I used patterned paper from the K&Company Day Dreams pad. I then cut out the letter I from the Cindy Loo cartridge and added string around it to make it look like spools of thread. To bring in the metal element, I added wire shaped like a needle and added a little bow to it. I almost forgot the dry embossing so I added a strip of light blue cardstock to the bottom and embossed it with the, cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. I also cut out the little tag for the saying in the same blue and embossed it as well :) I was so happy with the way it turned out :) If you really like this card please vote for it :) Voting starts in 2 days and if I figured it right it will be on Saturday. You can either click the link above or when voting starts I will leave a link to the actual voting page.

My Camera is Here!! :)

I am so excited my new camera came today! :) I can't wait to give it a try :) I had planned on doing a video tonight but it got too late and I was too worn out to film a video... I spent the day out at my Grandparents cleaning to earn some trip money :) I will definitely be making a video tomorrow, Tuesday... I am thinking about trying to do videos on Tuesdays and Fridays... Tuesday would be Tune in Tuesday and Fridays would be TGIF! Thank goodness it's Friday!. I would add extra videos in when every, but I would like to try to at least do two videos a week, so be looking for that soon. I have decided I am out of the Halloween mood, because it is getting so close so I am moving on to Autumn/Fall/Thanksgiving cards :) Those would be more my style anyway lol :) Ok well I am definitely going to be a video tomorrow and as always. Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Papercraft Star Challenge 17 Entry :)

Here is the card I made for the challenge on Papercraft Star. The theme is from a Martha Stewart picture. I used the orange, yellow, black and white colors, in the card and the background. I cut out the little candy corns with a pair of scissors and stamped their little faces using Peachy Keen Stamps. Using a scallop circle punch, I punched one of the corners of the candy corn to make it look like someone had taken a bite. lol. I also added a spider web to kinda go with the spider, and did black and white ribbon to do the stripes. The white background piece I ran through my cuttlebug using the polka dot embossing folder. I then used sharpie markers to color in some of the dots. Then I used my gypsy to weld together the word "boo" and printed out on my computer the saying "You Monster!!!" lol. To finish it off I used stickles to add glitter to the little spider web and white gel pen to the eyes. I really love how it turned out :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Digital Camera Fail :(

Ok so tonight I sat down and filmed a video, with my digital camera. Well when I was done, I hooked it up and went to edit the video, not only was there no sound the video was awful. SO sorry there will be no videos until I get my new camera. I did find one, I like the looks of. So there will be videos again, I promise! Ok so I didn't have a video but I do have a picture of the finished project :)
I made Halloween treat bags for my little cousins. I used the Create a Critter pumpkin. I used my Gypsy to weld the blackout pumpkins together and cut that in black, for the size I think it was about 4" high. I then cut out the little pumpkin on the regular cut and then layer two, the little face. I cut the stem from the green layer and just glued it to the top of the pumpkin face. I then did some doodling and highlights. To finish I took a cello bag and filled it with some goodies and then placed it between the "card" and stapled it together. I glued on the pumpkin face to cover the staples and finished off with "Too Cute To Spook". I think it turned out awesome and I can not wait to see what my little cousins think :) Have a great day and Happy Crafting!

Two new cards :)

Hi all I hope you had an awesome weekend. I am still camera less but I am going to try to do a video tomorrow using my digital camera. I am doing some research right now for possibilities. Thank you everyone for emailing me back to my question of which camera you use :) Ok so on to my new cards. The first up is a card I made for my little cousin, she will be turning 7 this December so I thought I would go ahead and have it ready for her. I found this awesome blog. I think it might be in Norwegian? but she has the cutest free digi stamps. The blog is Bodil's Scrappeverde, When I saw the digis they reminded me so much of my cousins :) So here is the card...
I wanted to keep it very simple because I know she is just going to throw it to the side and head to the presents lol :) but I also wanted to keep it very girly. I also had to include her favorite color, purple. I colored her in Crayola markers. I think it turned out kinda cute. Ok now on to the next card.

I got the image from the same blog (link above) and I thought it screamed Halloween. I colored her with Crayola markers as well and I think it turned out great! If I do say so my self :) I cut the tree the same way as my Challenge entry at 5.5" in fact this is the design that inspired my entry. I also cut the witch hat, vultures, and tombstones from Paper Doll Dress Up. I embossed the red card stock with D'vine Swirls. Ok hope you enjoy and Have a great Monday! and as always Happy Crafting!

MPS Saturday Challenge Entry :)

Well I am a little behind, but here is the card I made for Robyn's Saturday Challenge, it is a winter theme this time around :). I decided to do owls, my favorite! The card measures 5" x 7", the tree is from Paper Doll Dress Up and is cut at 5.5", I randomly added Saukra star dust gel pen to the edges of the tree, to resemble ice. The owls are cut in random sizes all only about 1/8" from each other. I also cut the little hats and scarfs from paper doll dress up as well. I then used my computer to print out the saying "Whooo... It's Cold Outside". To finish up I added glitter paper to the bottom with a scallop edge and white gel pen to the paper to make it look like it is snowing. I really like how it turned out! Hope you enjoy it as well :)

P.S. I am sure you know this but you can click the picture to get a larger view :)

Throwback Thursday Challenge - My entry :)

Hello everyone I hope you have been having a great week :)... I have a card today I made for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge, the challenge this week is to make a shaped card, include orange and use the create a critter cartridge... so here is the card I came up with...

I used the milk bottle, layer 1 for the base of the card... I then cut out the little flame, printed out the saying "I burn for you"... after I came up with the saying, I thought I wanted to make it look like the edges had been burned, so I used my Tim Holtz distress tool on the edge. Then I sponged the edges in brown and black ink. To finish it off. I did some faux white stitching and added stickles, in star dust. Really simple but I like how it turned out... I had every intention of filming a video on the process I did, but... My flip broke again last night :( so I am in the process of seeing how to get that fixed. It is doing the same thing it did last time... so I will probably be using my camera for now so we will see how that goes :) Ok well as always have a great day and Happy Crafting!
