Papercraft Star Challenge #18, Thank You Theme


Well, Hello everyone. I can finally say it is starting to feel a little like fall here in Northern California. Oh how I love fall. I especially love it when it gets dark early, My family thinks I am nuts but I feel like I am more productive at night. Silly! Silly!

Anyways, I want to share with you all a challenge that I completed today. This was a challenge that really did challenge me too. It is from Papercraft Star, What a fun place to go with some really neat challenges. This specific challenge was "Thank you theme" and you must use dry embossing ,Use a cricut or other die cut and use metal on the project. Well, Here is my project. I am really happy with the way it turned out. I used my Cricut "Doodlebug" cartridge and printed it out with Jillibean Soup DP(Chicken Noodle is the name of it. ). My card stock colors are Riding Hood Red, Going Gray & Daffodil Delight from Stampin Up! I dry embossed the Going Gray with D'vine swirl Embossing folder and the Daffodil delight panel with My ultimate fave Embossing folder, Swiss Dots. For the metal, I added 6 brads.
So, There you have it. My creation for the Papercraft Star challenge. I had so much fun with this challenge, I cant wait til the next one!!
Well, I am off to do some more creating, I hope everyone has a wonderful Fall evening and I will see you all real soon!

Mojo Monday Challenge #161

Happy Tuesday friends. I am sharing with you all here yet, another challenge that I completed. If it wasn't for challenges, I would probably have a pretty darn boring blog. I love love love challenges, If I ever get into that creative rut, I turn to a challenge and it just goes from there. So, with that being said, Mojo Monday challenges are one of my most fave challenge blogs.

For the base of the card, I used Vanilla. The next layer is Brocade Blue. The DP I used was a scrap from my scrap stash and I haven't the slightest idea what it is called or who it is made by. Sorry bout that one, but if you know, Let me know.) The ribbon is "Bluebird" from Stampin Up! The little yellow tag is one that I found in my die cut drawer, It looks as though it is close to Summer sun. I used the sentiment "Thank You" from the Short & Sweet stamp set from Stampin Up! I added some bling to the tag in green. For the flower, I layered some summer sun and punched it with my oval punch, Then the next layer is a scallop punch in the DP and then a final layer in Brocade Blue and added a brown prima flower with a green brad in the middle. Oh, and I punched the DP with my eyelet border punch. So, there you have it. My creation for the Mojo Monday challenge. I hope you enjoy my creation! Well, I am off to do some more creating so I will see you all real soon! Have a wonderful night!!

Witche's Hats, Goodie Boxes

Hello everyone, Just a quick post to share with you all the goodies boxes that I have put together for a Halloween Party that my family is going to on Sunday. I found this great Tutorial on You tube ,The tutorial was given by "StampwithTami" and she also has the tutorial on her blog. How darn cute are these? I made about 20 of them. Yes, a little time consuming but still adorable. I loaded them with candy for the kids and I think they are going to love them! So, just thought I would share with you all. Thanks for droppin by and we'll see you all soon!!










Yayyyy, It's Friday!


Happy Friday all my stamping friends. I am so looking forward to a fun filled weekend!
How about you all? Any big plans? I started of my weekend by completing a challenge over at Charisma Cards challenge Blog. This challenge was to create something with more than 2 folds. So I created an accordion fold card. My color scheme on this was Pumpkin Pie, Bravo Burgundy, Old Olive and summer sun. I sprayed the green flowers with Olive vine glimmer mist. I wish the camera would have picked up the sparkles of the mist but it is there! My DP is from Echo Park and is called "Playground". I also used a bit of Stampin Up! DP. The sentiment is from "Best Yet" stamp set from Stampin Up! and I put it on Vanilla card stock that I cut out with my Labels 4 nesties. The flowers are also on scallop circle nesties. I finished it off with 3 brads (from my stash) in the bottom right of the creation. There you have it. My multi fold creation. I hope you enjoy what you see and don't forget to leave me a message so I know that you were here. Have a wonderful Friday and I will see you all real soon!

2 more challenges down!


Happy Thursday friends. I have 2 more challenges that I want to share with you all. They are from Inspirational Card sketches & Color Throwdown. For "Color Throwdown" the colors are . These were great colors to work with!
For the flower in the center I used my Stampin Up! Die Flower, Daisies # 2. I love daisies so this is by far my fave die. The DP I used is from a 6X6 Stampin Up! pad. This pad has Blushing Bride, Pear Pizzaz, Peach Parfait, Concord Crush & Poppy Parade. I love the 6X6 pads because there usually isn't any waste and it's perfect for card making. I did add a button in the middle of the flower and added some hemp twine into the button holes.
So, there you have it. My 2 challenges.
I hope you enjoy my creation, Please don't forget to leave me a comment so I know you were here. Until next time, Happy Crafting!!

ABC Challenge




Hello everyone, Well, it is Sunday night and I have one more challenge creation to share with you all then it is off to be for me (it is 11:15pm.) I am pooped!
This challenge is from The ABC Challenge Blog and this challenge was to create an Easel card. Easel cards are so darn cute and easier to make than you may think. The image I used on this cutey patootie card is from CC Designs. I lovey love love CC Designs images. So fun to color in and so darn adorable. Don't ya think? See how I added the ribbon around the sentiment. Now we all know we have tons of ribbon scraps so I thought this was a good way to use some of them. Although I would have to create about a billion cards to use all of my scraps but, Hey, It's a start! LOL!
The DP I used is from Echo Park Paper Co. It is called "Sweet Summertime" by Crystal Wilkerson. I absolutely love this paper!
So, what do you think? I would love to hear your comments!!!
Well, It's off to bed for me! I will see you all real soon!!

The challenge over at Kraftin Kimmie was to make a celebration card and that is what I did. Mine if for a Happy Birthday. I colored her in with my Copics and you cant tell too well, but I colored in the cup cakes with my Spicas. I just love those Spicas. My DP is that from a 12X12 stack and my card stock colors are Lovely Lilac & Melon Mambo from Stampin Up! and White from Wausau.I also used my corner punch and punched out 4 corners and added them to the Melon Mambo. I also embossed the melon Mambo with my Traffic Jam Embossing folder.
For the 2nd. challenge, It is a sketch challenge from Sketch Saturday. I had so much fun with these 2 challenges. Now, Who to give the card to? Hmmmm, when is your birthday?
