Happy New Year!!

Hello 2017!!

I just wanted to jump on here and share a quick little New Year's project before the day is over!

I tried to get something made up prior to today, but as you all know, it gets super busy this time of year! So I decided to take advantage of the afternoon while my little one was napping.

I used My Creative Time stamps and dies to create this super cute shaker card!
I used the My Creative Time MORE Stitched Circle Dies to create the shaker part. I built up the frame by adhering around 8 layers together. I used the My Creative Time Number Fun Dies & Add Ons to make the 2017. After adhering half of the layers together, I used some clear string to hang the letters in the middle of my shaker part. 

So, not only do all my pretty sequins and beads shake...but so does the 2017!

Supplies:
Papertrey Ink White card stock
Bazill Black cardstock
Amy Tangerine Stitched 6x6 paper stack
My Creative Time MORE Stitched Circle Dies
My Creative Time Number Fun Dies & Add Ons

I hope you all had a wonderful New Year! 
Thanks for stopping by!

Merry Everything!!

Merry Christmas crafty friends! 

I was able to sneak off into my craft room again this week, and decided I needed to make one more Christmas project this year. So I've just got a quick shaker card to share with you!
This jolly little Santa is from the My Favorite Things BB Jingle All The Way. I colored him with various Copic markers.

The shaker frame was created with the My Favorite Things Die-namics Stitched Square Scallop Frames. To make the shaker, I cut the frame with my Big Shot 7-8 times and then stacked all of the fames together. I find that this gives the shaker material lots of room to move around. 
(And don't mind the sequin that is stuck to poor Santa's head...I couldn't get it to move, so he's stuck with it there!)

I used the My Favorite Things Die-namics Basic Stitch Lines on my patterned background paper. And finally my sentiment is from the BB Jingle All The Way stamp set. 
Supplies: 
PaperTrey Ink White card stock
Echo Park I Love Christmas 6x6 paper stack
My Favorite Things BB Jingle All The Way
My Favorite Things Die-namics Basic Stitch Lines
Pretty Pink Posh Sequins

Thanks so much for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful Christmas today!

Jaded Blossom Guest Designer :: there's snow buddy like you

Hi there crafty strangers! I know it's been forever since I last posted anything. Nearly a year! 

But today I am honored to be a guest designer for Jaded Blossom! I still absolutely LOVE my Jaded Blossom stamps and dies, and have continued to grow my collection even though I've been on a hiatus! 

Anyhoo...Candace and Michelle from Jaded Blossom are hosting guest designers all month long on their blog, and today is MY day! So what are you waiting for, let's get to it!

For my project, I created some super cute little goody bags. One of the things I love about Jaded Blossom is that you can create tons of projects with their stamps and dies. And like today...you don't even need to turn on a computer or cutting machine.
For my treats today, I decided to use the Jaded Blossom Goody Bag Dies. This treat bag is the perfect little size for just about anything! 

Aren't these little snowmen just the cutest!
 The snowmen are from the Jaded Blossom Snowman Dies and their cute little faces are from the Jaded Blossom Snowman Faces (Add On) stamp set. The die set includes everything you need for these little snowman...plus a few other options as well!
 For my sentiment tag, I used the Jaded Blossom Flag Dies 2 to create a flag for my candy canes. In order to have the flag wrap all the way around, I just placed the cutting plates at different ends of the dies on my Big Shot to make the flag longer. The sentiment is from the White Christmas stamp set.
And of course, I had to add some glitter! Well, not the messy kind...but easy to clean up glitter paper! I used my Big Shot to cut dies from the Jaded Blossom Winter Dies set for the snow at the top and my snowflakes.

That's it from me for today. I hope you enjoyed my guest designer project! 

Don't forget to check out the rest of the designers this month on the Jaded Blossom blog. And remember, head on over to the Jaded Blossom store to check out all of the stamp and dies they offer.

Jaded Blossom Guest Designer :: Merry Christmas!!

Good Morning!!
Today I'm honored to be a guest designer for Jaded Blossom!

I want to give a special thanks to Candace and Michelle for such a fun opportunity! 

Now...I know Christmas is over, but I just have to share this super cute little Christmas treat bag! Luckily for all of us crafters, all the Jaded Blossom stamps and dies go together perfectly! 

I started with the Jaded Blossom Goody Bag Die and some PaperTrey Ink card stock to make sure my bag was nice and sturdy. 
The little Polar Bear Ice Cap is from SVG Cutting Files. Isn't he just the cutest! I used one of the tags from the Jaded Blossom Mini Tag Dies 2 set for my sentiment. And the "Merry Christmas" comes from the Jaded Blossom Merry and Bright stamp set. I love how quick and simple using this die set is. And it's soo super cute, that you don't really have to add anything to it!

Pretty Cute Stamps :: Gift Giving Challenge

Good morning! It's so nice to be back in my craft room, and just in time to get some Christmas projects done! 

Today's card is one I am entering into the Pretty Cute Stamps Gift Giving Challenge
I created the card base in Silhouette Studio by welding some circles together. I used the offset feature to make the additional layers. This adorable little chickie is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Cute Chicks cut file.
But of course, it's almost December, so I had to make this little chickie into a Santa chick! The hat is from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Santa Birdie. I just resized it to fit. The gifts are from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Birthday Critters cut file.
I used the Pretty Cute Stamps Dear Santa stamp set for my sentiment. I stamped it with Versamark Ink and embossed it with White embossing powder. I trimmed it up and used the WeR Memory Keepers 1/8" corner rounder to round the corners. To finish of my Santa hat, I used some Liquid Applique on it and then added some Pretty Pink Posh sequins to the card.
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock
Echo Park Christmas Cheer 6x6 paper pad
Pretty Cute Stamps Dear Santa
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Cute Chicks cut file
Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons Santa Birdie cut file

Thankful for you :: My Creative Time

Good morning! I've got a new My Creative Time project to share with you, and it's just in time for Thanksgiving!

For this super cute little thankful card, I used the My Creative Time Stitched Squares Inside & Out die set to create one of the background layers of the card. This one was roughly 4 1/2" and then I added 1/8" to each side to create the actual card base.
I used the My Create Time Stitched Starburst die set to create the middle layers. I cut them both out of the background layer so I could inset the additional layers.
This adorable little raccoon is from the My Creative Time Fall Friends stamp and die set. I masked off the stamps to create this little scene and colored it in with Copic markers. I used some WOW! Gold embossing powder to stamp the sentiment from the My Creative Time Belly Band Sentiments stamp set. And a few different colors of enamel dots finished it off!
Supplies:
PaperTrey Ink Dark Chocolate cardstock
Echo Park Reflections (Lori Whitlock) 6x6 paper pad
Echo Park Reflections Fall (Lori Whitlock) 6x6 paper pad
