Merry Little Christmas Challenge Blog- Anything Goes

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

I am so excited to be joining the Merry Little Christmas Design Team as well.  I love all things Christmas, so being able to create Christmas cards throughout the year will be so much fun.

So let's get started with my first Christmas card in July... 

This card was created using the Holiday Jars die set from Queen and Company. I bought the kit last year and I am just getting around to use it.

Everything on the card was included in the kit, except the scallop die I used for behind the jar (Fun Stampers Journey-retired) and the white card stock for the scallop and the sentiment strip.  I used some "faux" snow from Dollar Tree to put in the jar.

I love making shakers and Christmas is a great reason to make cute shaker cards.

Mix it Up Challenge Blog- Twist: Clean and Simple

 


 Hello Crafty friends,

I am so excited to be on the design team for Mix it Up!  This is a new design team for me, but I am looking forward to sharing my designs with you where.

This month's theme is Anything Goes with the twist: Clean and Simple.

Here is the card that I created, which to me is clean and simple.


 I used some pattern paper from my stash to create the background of my card. I then stamped the deer (retired stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey) onto white cardstock using a brown ink.

I matted this image piece on a piece of brown cardstock and tied a brown twine knot around the whole piece.

I finished the cars by die cutting the letters HB from brown cardstock using the alphabet die set from Queen and Company.

Then head over to Mix it Up Challenge Blog and share your clean and simple card.

Love to Craft Challenge Blog- Anything Goes

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We are in the heat of summer and what is better when you are on Summer Vacation but to craft and be creative.  I have recently been working on some Christmas ornaments and wanted to share my favorite so far.

I created this ornament using the ornaments from Dollar Tree. I then used Poly acrylic and white glitter to color the ornament white.  I then used permanent vinyl in black and red and cute the image out with my Cricut.

To finish the project, I added the red polka dot bow from ribbon in my stash.

I love the craft and hope you do too.  Let's see your projects. Join the challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog where anything goes.

Crafty Gals Corner- Challenge #232 Anything Goes

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we have a new challenge of Anything Goes at Crafty Gals Corner.  That means you can create a project of any theme and join the challenge here

For this challenge I received this "Tulips" digital stamp from Twinkle Lane Designs.

Here is the beautiful card I created with this lovely stamp.


The first thing I did was color the image with my Copics.

Stem and Leave: YG67, YG17, YG25

Blooms: R89, R85, R83

I tried something a little different for me with this image.  I left the tips of the petals white. I usually have to color every bit of an image, but I felt that the tulips may not necessarily have color on the whole petal.

I then created my base using some cardstock from y stash.  The "pattern" paper is actually some washi tape I put around a piece of cardstock.

I then added a piece of green that I die cut from Lawn Fawn's Grass die to the bottom of the image.

Lastly, I die cut and adhered this mini bow from Fun Stampers Journey to the bottom of the card front.

To finish the card, I added the sentiment that came with the tulips at the top.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment. Then create your own project and share it with us at Crafty Gals Corner.
