Shopping Our Stash #271

Hey everyone and happy Tuesday!!
It's time for a new challenge over at 

This week challenge #271 is....
Apple for Teacher
(use fruits/veggies on your project or make a teacher appreciation card)

Here is the project that I created for this challenge:

I recently purchased this cute little stamp set from the new Lawn Fawn release and this challenge was the perfect time for me to pull it out and use it. After I had my apples colored, I used a square bracket die to cut it out. I embossed a strip of red cardstock with my swiss dots embossing folder. I then added some white strips to the side that I had punched with a border punch. I added some ribbon and adhered my panel to a Kraft card base. I popped my image and sentiment both up with some foam tape for some more dimension.

Neglected items from my stash that I used on my card are:
---Stitched Oval Die---
---Doily Lace Border Punch---
---Nesting Squares Dies (bought over 6+ months ago and never used until now)---
---Swiss Dots Embossing Folder---

Be sure to head over to the Shopping Our Stash Challenge Blog to see what my design team sisters created. I hope you will decide to make a project and join us, I would love to see what you create!

Thank you so much for stopping by my blog and taking a look at my latest creation!
I really appreciate it!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Happy Haunting Treat Box

Hi everyone!
I hope you are having a fabulous Friday!

I wanted to pop in real quick and share a project that I created for the current challenge over at

I decided to make a little treat box for the challenge.

I used the Scalloped Treat Box from Lawn Fawn and heat embossed my greeting from the Booyah stamp set onto the upper panel. I used a circle die cut to create my moon, as well as my geometric shape, and used some distress inks to color it and some water droplets for dimension on my moon. I colored my witch hat with some zig clean color real brush markers for a watercolor effect and popped my witchy ghost and the speech bubble up with some foam tape. I finished off my little box with some purple star confetti. The stars can count as a geometric shape too now that I think of it lol! 

I will also be entering this into the challenge over at

Merry Christmas Gift Tag

Happy Wednesday!
I hope your day is off to a fabulous start so far!

Today I am back with a tag for Christmas that showcases some
 awesome stamps and dies from 

I thought it would be fun to make a bigger sized tag, (#6 or 5 1/4"x 2 5/8") than I normally make.  I created my tag out of some Gray striped patterned paper and simply cut off the top two corners at a slight angle. I added some more patterned paper along the bottom and used the small scallop from the Scallop Borders dies to create a fun little scallop in the red houndstooth at the bottom.  I used the Merry Christmas dies and cut out my sentiment in some dark red cardstock and placed it on my tag with the edges hanging off to add a little fun. I stamped the holly leaf from the Hollydays stamp set and used the coordinating die to cut it out. I finished off my tag with some red sequins and some bling, as well as a green button with a white thread bow.

I heard you were Dragon?? (A Get Well Card)

Hey everyone and happy happy Friday!!!
Woot! Woot!
I hope you have lots of fun plans for the upcoming weekend!

I'm popping in real quick today to share a card with you that I made for the current sketch challenge going on over at the My Favorite Things Challenge site.

Here is a look at the MFT Sketch #298:

and here is the card that I created based on the sketch:

I am in love with these dragons and have been patiently waiting for them to get back into stock lol! Once I got them in the mail, I just had to play with them! I colored in my dragon with some Copic markers and then fussy cut him out. I added a bit of chalk to his cheeks along with white gel pen freckles. I decided my little window needed something, so I added some little heart punch outs with wink of stella and glossy accents. Fall means cold and flu season right? I hope no one I know gets sick but just in case, I have one get well card ready to go.
