What's the Buzz? with Joy's Life Stamps

Happy Saturday!
I hope your weekend is off to a great start!
Today I will be showing you a super cute card made with the Joy's Life Stamps.

This week the design team is showcasing cards that have movement.
I decided to make a telescoping card


Here is the card opened:



These cards are so cute and so easy to make.
You can find the tutorial HERE

For my card, I cut the beehive out of the Sentimentals Cricut cartridge at 1.5". The bee was also cut from sentimentals but at 2.25". I then stamped my sentiment on the third piece and drew the flight pattern from the bee to the sentiment to give the illusion that the bee wrote the sentiment.

My sentiment came from the You're So Punny stamp set from Joy's Life Stamps.



Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation! I really appreciate it!
Don't forget to check out the Joy's Life Design Team page to get more inspiration on cards that move.
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Beautiful You!

Happy Wednesday!
Today I would like to share a card with you
that I made for the Unity Stamp Co. Challenge.
The challenge this month is to make a card using Unity/Ippity stamps
and it must have an opening/flap/window of some sort.
This is the card that I created for the challenge:


and the card opened:



 

I kept my card pretty simple so that the focus stayed on the colored butterfly.
I just made a circle in the bottom of the card with my circle punch and then stamped the butterfly above it and the sentiment beside it. I then stamped the butterflies again and colored one and used my scissors to cut it out and pop it up to where it peeked through the window.

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

Happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend!
Today I will be showing you my project for

or

As soon as I saw this sentiment on the Wild Life Puns set, I knew what I wanted to make.



Here is my treat box opened:


And a close up of that sentiment:


For my project, I used a nugget tin and lined the bottom with some white tissue paper. I then placed some graham crackers, some fun sized Hersey bars and marshmallows. Then I made a belly band to go around the closed tin, tied a bow with some ribbon, and created a tag with my labels four nestabilites and stamped my sentiment. Voila!

St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop



Happy St. Patrick's Day and welcome to the
St. Patrick's Day Blog Hop with the Joy's Life DT! I'm so glad you are here and I hope you wore green so no one pinches you today ;)

You should have arrived here from the very talented Sarabeth,
If you just happened to stumble across the hop today on my blog and would like to start at the beginning, just hop on over and see Joy at Joy's Life.

 For my project, I used the Happy St. Patrick's Day stamp from Joy's Holiday Occasions stamp set.


Top View:


Close Up of the Sentiment:


I decided to make a pot of gold for my project and I thought a altered paint bucket would be perfect! I made a  little border out of the green plaid paper and used a border punch on it and then attached it to my bucket.  I then cut my cute little leprechaun out of the Simply Charmed cricut cartridge at 3" and popped him up on the front of the bucket with some foam adhesive. For the top of my bucket, I used some spellbinders and then cut my clover out of the Designer's calendar cricut cartridge at 1.25" and popped it up with foam adhesive. I added some pearls around the border of my scallops. I tied a bow to the front of the bucket and added my little tag using the Holiday Occasions stamp set and added some more ribbons to the handle. Then I filled my bucket with some "gold" (Rolo's candies). I think it came out so cute and my hubby is going to enjoy eating all of those rolo's ;)

What's a blog hop without a little candy? I'm going to pick one lucky person to receive
the Holiday Occasions Stamp set from Joy's Life stamps :

Trendy Twine Tuesday :)

This was such a simple project to make. I made the little milk carton (directions can be found HERE) and then just decorated it.
