Hello Crafty Friends,

Be sure to read through my blog, comment below and continue to Tiziana's blog. If you get lost along the way, you can find a list of Blog Hoppers at the end of each Blog.

 

Here are the Halloween projects I created for this month’s hop.

 

Up first is the card I created. 

I used pattern paper from We are Memory Keepers, Cake and Candles he Card Square die- Flip It's #2 from Sizzix to create the base of my card.  

Here is a picture of the card totally flat. 

 
I then used the Birthday Before and After stamp set from Lawn Fawn and colored with my Copics to make the birthday cake front.
Candles: B24
Flames: Y15
Cake: Y23, Y21
Icing:  G46, G43, G40
Decoration: YR18

I placed the cake on the front and stamped the sentiment with Black ink on the panel.  


 
I colored two of the cakes exactly the same, so that I could make a matching tag to place on the gift.

 
I used the Tag die from Spellbinders and the same pattern paper from We are Memory Keepers to create the tag.  I added a white organza ribbon to the top of the tag.
 
Here are both projects together.  Fun and festive for a man or woman.

Bitten by the Bug 2: Snowflakes

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 today and we are using snowflakes.  It has been pretty hot the last few days here in Southern California, so it is pretty easy to be thinking about snowflakes and snow and snowmen at this time.

If you know me, I had to use Olaf on my project, so I broke out my Frozen Cricut cartridge and created this door hanging.


 The large snowflake background is a wood cut out from the Dollar Tree, which I traced and cut out a blue glitter cardstock layer to put on top.

I then got to work cutting out different colors and sizes of snowflakes.   

I then die cut Olaf, put him together and placed him inside the circle of snowflakes.


I think he looks pretty happen between those snowflakes.  

To finish him, I added some sequins and an organza bow to the top.  He is ready to greet our visitors with a smile.

Now it is your turn.  Please create a project with snowflakes and join the challenge here.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Crafty Gals Corner-Challenge #215 Snow Much Fun


 

 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today is a our first challenge of 2021 over on the Crafty Gals Corner.   The theme is perfect for me because I love everything snow, so of course I had to create a card using snowmen from Twinkle Lane Designs.

       

Here is the card I created using the Snow Family Digital Stamp.


 The base of the card is created with cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey and pattern paper from Bo Bunny.  

I colored the snow family with my Copics:

Bodies: B000, B0000

Holly on Mom and Dad's hat: G21, G20

Band on Mom and Dad's hat: R24, R21

Dad's Hat: C7, C5  

Dad's scarf: G05, G02

Mom's hat and scarf: R83, R81

Girl's hat and scarf: V95, V93

Boy's hat and scarf; B15, B13, B10

To finish the card, I added an organza bow with some white and sparkle twine.  I then added a few snowflake sequins I found in my stash.

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

Celebrate You Birthday Card

 Hello Crafty Friends,

I have a fun fold card to share with you today.  I love the layers of this card and the layout is perfect for a man or woman.

Folded it looks like a regular A2 card.  But when you open it up, it can stand on it's own.

 

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey, except the die I used to cut out the word celebrate.  It was from Queen and Company.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Ski Lodge Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

If you know me, I know anything that has to do with winter.  I love snowmen and decorate with them for Christmas.  I love snow, but have never had to live in it, so I am sure that would change if I had to.  Today is a card for the love of winter.


 I created the card with Whip Cream and Chambray Shirt Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then used pattern paper from Bo Bunny to create the layout on the card front.

I then stamped the image from Stay Cozy from Fun Stampers Journey with Black Licorice ink.  I colored the cabins with my Copics.

To finish the card, I added a piece of brown grosgrain ribbon from my stash and Journey Glaze with Sparkle Dust to the snow in the image.
