Scrappy Moms Stamps March Release

Happy Friday!!!

Today Scrappy Moms Stamps is releasing two new fabulous stamp sets!!


Here is the first card that I created for this release using a new stamp set called:


Masculine cards are so hard for me to make. I thought this file of a man fishing in his boat would be perfect for a masculine birthday card though so I gave it a shot. I added my water layer to the very bottom of my white layer and actually let it hang off a little and I love the way that looked. I added a bit of glossy accents to the water and to the fish. I used some distress ink to create the clouds in the sky. For my greeting, I stamped that greeting from the Zodiac Cuties set and notched the ends and then attached it to my top card layer with a staple. 

Here is a complete look at both the sets that are being released today:



Awesome huh?

Stretch Your Dies---Day 4

Happy Wednesday!

Today I am back with another card that I made for the 
Stretch Your Dies class from Online Card Classes.


Today's class was about getting maximizing your card design and getting two cards by using the negative as well as the positive to create two cards with the same layout yet a different look on each. This technique was shown to us by Kristina Werner.

Here are the cards that I created using this technique:

Stretch Your Dies---Day 3

Happy Tuesday!!

Today I am back with another card that I made for the 
Stretch Your Dies class from Online Card Classes.


For my card I used a technique that was shown to us by 
Karolyn Loncon, which was masking a die cut to create and scene and then taking the same die cut and using it to dry emboss.  

Here is the card that I created:


For my mask, I used the large heart die from the Heart 2 Heart Love Frame set from My Creative Time. I created a little outdoor scene by using some Broken China & Peeled Paint Distress Inks from Ranger and then I used the same die to dry emboss to get that fun stitching around the heart.  I then stamped and colored the little girl using my copics. I fussy cut her out and then popped her up using some foam adhesive. 

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!!

Bitten By The Bug 2 -- Use A Frame


Happy Monday!

Are you guys ready for another fun challenge that starts today over at

This week we are challenging you to use a frame from one of your Cricut cartridges.

Here is the card that I created for the challenge:

To create my card, I welded two of the shadow layers for the wood frame together to create my card base. I then layered the wood frame on top and added the Winnie The Pooh peeking over holding the balloon. All of my images were cut from the Disney Pooh and Friends Cricut cartridge, except for the banner which is a die from My Creative Time. This card was so simple to make and took less than 30 minutes to put together. I was going to add a sentiment to the front but decided to keep the focus on Winnie and add the greeting to the inside of the card. Winnie The Pooh is one of my all time favorite Disney characters so I think this card is absolutely adorable but I may be a little biased since he is one of my favorites ;) 

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it! 

Don't forget to head over to the Bitten By The Bug blog to see what my Design Team sisters created! After you take a peek at their creations, I hope you will create a project and join us in the challenge!
 I would love to see what you make :) 

I hope you have a great crafty day!

Birthday Gift with Washi

Happy Saturday!
Today I get to show you a super simple favor box that I created and no patterned paper was used, only that gorgeous Washi tape from Love My Tapes
The tapes I used on my project are:


&


Here is my project:

I used the Candy Caddy From Jaded Blossom to create my little treat bag. I then laid out some strips of Washi tape onto some white cardstock scraps and used some balloon dies from My Creative Time to cut them out. I stamped a greeting onto the bag using a stamp from Scrappy Moms and then placed some of the Pink Chevron washi along the bottom edge. I popped my balloons up using some foam adhesive and then tied some strings onto the balloons. I cut the strings rather short with the hopes that they would appear to be forming the sentiment. Not quite sure if that worked or not but I went with it haha! After the bag was decorated, I wrapped each piece of chocolate with a piece of white cardstock and then more Washi.


I think these would make the perfect little party favors or even a simple but cute birthday gift for a co worker, neighbor, etc. 


Thank you all so much for stopping by!
I really appreciate it!

I hope you have a great crafty day!
