MCT: Try Me Tuesday!

Hi crafty friends!
Happy Tuesday!

Today over at the My Creative Time blog, it is Try Me Tuesday!
The technique that we are trying today is Ghost Stamping. 
In case you don't know (like I didn't), Ghost Stamping is when you stamp your images in white and then stamp again but slightly offset so that some of the white shows through. 

Here is the card that I created for this Try Me Tuesday:

For my card, I stamped the flowers from the Fun Pockets set, first in white and then again in black. I then proceeded to color them in with some markers. I used the Curly Label die and the Stitched Curly Label Die for my sentiment and then I used some white embossing powder to make my sentiment from the It's All About You set pop off of the kraft cardstock. 


This was the first time that I tried this technique and I love it!!
It creates such a cool effect! I really like how some of the white peeks around the flower as well as inside the petals and leaves. 

Be sure to stop by the My Creative Time blog to see all the fabulous Ghost Stamping techniques that my wonderful DT sisters created.

I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!

Carrot Box

Happy Sunday!
I hope you are all enjoying your weekend!

Today I am back with another candy box to send to my daughter and her friends for Easter.


 I cut out this super cute carrot box that I found from the silhouette online store.
Once I had everything cut out, I did some faux stitching on each of the sides as well as the carrot tops. 
After I had all the stitching done, I assembled my box. I used a stamp from My Creative Time's Happy Hunting set to put a fun little saying on the front with a cute little bunny from the My Creative Time's Hello Spring set. I added a little pom pom to the bunny for his cute little tail. :) To close my box, I used some of that gorgeous

Happy Birthday Kimi!!


Hi crafty friends!
Welcome to KIMI’S SURPRISE BIRTHDAY BLOG HOP!!

We are super excited to share her special day with you!
 If you just so happened to arrive at my blog and would like to start at the beginning, which is also the birthday girl’s blog, please hop on over to www.lovebugcreations3.blogspot.com. I’m sure she would LOVE your birthday wishes. If you arrived at my blog from Tanya at  http://www.scrappinkymomma.blogspot.com/, then you are on the right track.


I decided to make the birthday girl a card and a little treat holder.
For my card, I used a svg file from SVGcuttingfiles called cupcake girl. I used a peachy keen face on her and of course she wasn't complete until I added her sweet bow to her ponytail using some Princess Party Pink Rumple Ribbon from Lovebug Creations! Isn't she cute??



I decided that Kimi also needed just a little bit of chocolate to go with her card, so I made her this little nugget box. I added some doodling to the front of the box as well as to the flame. I finished off my box by adding a fluffy full bow using more of that


Here is a picture of the card and the box together:


Kimi, you are truly one of the nicest people that I know and I am so glad to have gotten the chance to get to know you! I hope you have a fabulous birthday! May it be filled with lots of love, laughter & wonderful memories (and lots & lots of yummy cake!!) 

Thank you so much for hopping with us!

MCT: Inspiration Wednesday

Happy Wednesday crafty friends!

It is Inspiration Wednesday over at the My Creative Time blog!
This is the day where we create a project based on something that has inspired us.
For the card that I made today, I was inspired by two things. 
1. My daughter's upcoming college graduation 
&
2. The many fabulous shaker cards that my wonderful DT sisters always make.

This is my first shaker card and I had so much fun making it!
I decided to make my shaker window by using the Stitched "Capture" Frame with Arrow Die Set. Before I added the acetate, foam adhesive and sequins, I stamped the Class of 2014 from the Follow Your Dreams stamp set. After my shaker was attached to my card base, I popped up a Graduation Cap from the Here's Lookin' At You set. Like I said, I had so much fun making this and I will definitely be making more of these in my future. 


Thanks so much for stopping by and taking a look at my latest creation!
For more Inspiration Wednesday, be sure to check out the My Creative Time blog to see the fabulous creations my DT sisters came up with :)

I hope you have a fabulous crafty day!
