Cut it Up Challenge #135 ~ Shape Card

Hi Crafty Friends,
We're making shape cards on the Cut It Up Challenge Blog.
I got an adorable file from our challenge sponsor, Fleurette Bloom called "Cutie Bugs."  I think they make adorable shape cards especially for the kiddos.
 I just duplicated the bottom petal and then welded the two to create an actual card that opens.
Everything was done on the Silhouette.
Here's a peek at the entire set.
Shape cards are so much fun.  I look forward to seeing yours.  Just follow the link above to enter our challenge.

I LOVE this patterned paper set, Happy Fall by Carta Bella.  I decided to frame the pumpkins using Jaded Blossom Stitched Rectangle dies.  The sentiment is from JB's Fall Signs.

The Merry Christmas Challenge #42

Hi Crafty Friends,

I just love being on TMCC team.  
For once, I may have most of my Christmas cards finished ahead of the rush.

I purchased an amazing  snowflake stamp from CAS-ual Fridays and used it to create this card.

I stamped the snowflakes on classic linen - gold pearl card stock and then heat embossed using silver sparkle.  The dies are from La-La-Land Crafts.  Once again is used some Mercury Glass card stock for the mat and added a few sequins to complete the card.

Remember that there is a new challenge EVERY week.  Next week Team Tinsel will share their projects.

You can join our challenge HERE.


Christmas Joy

Hi Crafty Friends,

I'm sharing a simple yet elegant (I hope) Christmas card on the
Paper Crafting World blog today.

I love the simplicity of this Poinsettia Silhoutte

I've used classic linen pearl papers in white and gold for the card base and mat.  I cut the poinsettia out of a pearlized red cover stock .  The sentiment is a La-La Land Crafts die which I cut from gold foil.  The polka dot paper if from the 6 x 6 stack, Gifts of Gold by Paper Studios (Hobby Lobby).
I plan to multiples of this card for our holiday mailing.

Always Fun Challenge #30 ~ Halloween

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is my final Halloween project.  Now to wait for the kiddos tomorrow night.

For this Always Fun Challenge, I made a small gable box.  It was going to be a treat holder but while at our LSS Crop, a crafty friend suggested that it would be cute as a tea light holder.  I tried it and I really like the results.

I did add clear plastic behind the cut out so it could still be a treat holder.
The box is a new Jaded Blossom  Gable box die and the ghost and spider are from Jaded Blossom's
Halloween Dies.
