Here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


When I was going through my card stash, I realized that I was almost completely out of birthday cards. I decided I would make a birthday themed card for this month's challenge. For my patterned papers, I used the Coral Couture Matstack from DCWV. I love the pretty colors and the patterns that are in this stack! The inside of the card reads, "Happy Birthday".

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog today and taking a look at my latest creation!

Card Harmony --- Gift Tags with Lawn Fawn & Mama Elephant

Happy Monday!
I hope your weekend was fabulous and that your day is off to a great start!

Today Kimberly and I are back with another Card Harmony post.
Here is a link to my blog post that tells a little bit about what Card Harmony is all about. 
We basically take turns purchasing stamps each month and then we both make a card using the same stamp set to see how alike or different our cards turn out. We add a little twist each month though to make it a little more challenging. 

This month our twist was to make 4 tags (one tag with each stamp set).

Here is my tag for the Lawn Fawn Winter Alpaca set:

For this tag, I used some embossing paste and the snowfall stencil from MFT to create my snowy background on my blue cardstock. I then used the Scallop Waves Dies from Pink & Main to create my snow hills. I colored that cute little Alpaca from Lawn Fawn with my copics and used the coordinating die to cut it out and popped it up with some foam adhesive. I finished off my tag with a bow cut from the Fun Size Scallop Stitched Bow die from MCT and some white ribbon. 


The second tag that I created was with the Winter Penguin stamp from Lawn Fawn:

For this tag, I cut out my base from a Spellbinders die, left it in place after it was cut and masked it off a little and did a little inking to create my skyline. I then stamped and colored in that adorable little penguin with my copics and added a few dots to his scarf with my white gel pen. My greeting came from the Oh Snap set from Lawn Fawn. I added a few sequins as well as some glossy accent dots and then added some twine to tie to the package. 


For my 3rd tag, I used the Snow Day stamp set from Lawn Fawn:

I once again used a spellbinder die to create my tag base. I added some faux stitching all the way around the green layer with my white gel pen. I stamped the tree and bird and colored them with my copics. I then cut out another tag from white and tore it and added some glitter for snow. I colored the bunny and then fussy cut him out and placed him onto the tag. I finished off my tag by adding some twine and bling to the tree. 


For my last tag, I used the Reindeer Games set from Mama Elephant:

For this tag, I used the tag dies from MCT and cut them out twice, once in white and again in red glitter cardstock. I added the word JOY by diecutting it out from a die by Paper Sweeties. I cut out a scalloped circle from red glitter and layered a white circle on top. I stamped that absolutely adorable little reindeer, colored in with my copics and then die cut it out and popped him up with some foam tape. I added a few sequins, ribbon and twine to finish it off.

Be sure to check out Kimberly's blog, Kimberly's Crafty Spot

I bet they are fabulous (like all her projects :) )!!

Friends Warm the Coldest of Days

Hey guys!
I hope you had a fabulous weekend!
Today we had a lot of family fun time and some Christmas activities. I made a card last night for the sketch challenge over at MFT Card Challenges and was able to get a picture of it today, thankfully cause there isn't much time left on the challenge :)

Here is a look at the sketch for the challenge #259:

Here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


I think this little girl from the Warmest Wishes set is just adorable! I colored her with my copics and then used the corresponding die to cut her out.  For my sky, I used the Snowfall stencil and some embossing paste to create a snowy sky. Before I applied my paste to my card, I mixed in some glitter so that my snowflakes would shimmer. I cut out my snow drifts using a die from Pink & Main called Scallop Waves Dies.

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

Christmas Cheer

Happy Friday Crafty Friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful day so far!

Today I am back with another Christmas card that features a fun little quote from the
Christmas Quotes stamp set from Pink & Main!


Elf is one of my favorite Christmas movies so when I saw the quote from Buddy The Elf in the Christmas Quotes stamp set, I knew I needed to make a card using it. For my elf, I used a SVG from a past Christmas Movies blog hop by SVGcutting files. I think this card is so cute!

Snowflake Christmas Card

Hey everyone!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!

Today I have a simple but pretty Christmas card that I made for a few challenges.
The first challenge is the December Card Sketch challenge over at Scrapbook.com.
I made my card using sketch #3 which is this one by Susan Stringfellow:


Here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:



My card was pretty simple once I had the papers I wanted to use all picked out. For that, I used some pattern papers that I have had in my stash for awhile now and am trying to use them up. I matched up some of my solid cardstock to the colors in the patterns and got busy layering up my card. Once I had all my layers on my card, I added some faux stitching with my gel pen. I used a snowflake die from My Creative Time to cut out my snowflake and then adhered glitter all over the flake. I added some bling, that I have also had for awhile, onto my snowflake and to the bottom and top corners of my card. I finished off my card with some twine. 

I'm entering my card into the following challenges:

Sweet Holiday Wishes

Happy Friday Crafty Friends!
I hope you are having a fabulous day!

Today I am back with another Christmas card that features 

For my card today, I based my design on the following sketch from Tsunami Rose:

Here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:

I love that little gingerbread man from the Cocoa Kisses stamp set so I knew I wanted to make something with him. I stamped him onto some kraft cardstock and red cardstock. I fussy cut him out of the kraft and then cut only the bow out of the red. I glued the bow onto him and then applied some liquid applique onto him for the icing. I love the way the liquid applique looks! Once I had him like I wanted him, I started building all the layers of my card. I added a bunch of faux stitching to the solid red cardstock pieces and added a few sequins for a bit of sparkle. I stamped my sentiment, also from the Cocoa Kisses set, with some green ink and fussy cut that out and placed that at the top of my card. I absolutely love how it turned out, I just think it is so fun and whimsical!

Merry Christmas Snowflake Card

Hey everyone! I hope your Wednesday is going great!
Today I have a card to share with you that I made for a couple of different challenges.

The first challenge is for the December Card Sketch Challenge over at Scrapbook.com. My card was based off of sketch #5, which is this sketch:


Here is the card that I created based on the above sketch:


 For my card, I used some awesome snowflakes from the Snow Sweet stamp set by Pink & Main and heat embossed them in white onto some white cardstock. Then I took 3 different distress inks and blended them all together over my snowflakes. I adhered that panel onto some silver glitter cardstock and attached that to my card base. For my greeting, I heat embossed a greeting from Lawn Fawn with some silver embossing powder, notched the ends and popped it up onto my card with some foam adhesive. Super easy and it is so much prettier in person. My picture definitely did not capture all the shimmer and sparkle. Sorry about that. 

The other challenges I am entering my card into are:

Holly

Hi everyone! I hope you are having a great day so far!

Today I am back to share with you a Christmas card that I created using the Holly stamp set from Pink & Main.


I love making center step cards, so I knew I wanted to make one for Christmas. One of the things I love about this type of card, besides the fun fold, is that your image really seems to be front and center and this cute little girl definitely deserves the spotlight. After I had her all colored in with my Copics, I used the coordinating Holly Die to cut her out. I popped her up with some foam tape for a little added dimension. I stamped the greeting, also from the Holly stamp set, onto a piece of white cardstock, popped it up on the bottom of my card and then added the little holly leaves on each side to help frame the greeting.
