Crafty Gals Corner

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  The challenge is  Easter/Spring I had so much fun creating this Easter card with this sweet image from The Paper Shelter.

  

Here is the card I created.


 This is the first rocker card I have created, but it will definitely be making more.

I started with a 5 1/2 in circle with my Cricut to make the card base.  I then cut a circle a little bit smaller for the blue circle from Doodlebug Designs pattern paper.

I then die cut the scallop pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs with the Scallop Around die set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then die cut the image with the Journey Circle Die set from Fun Stampers Journey.

I colored the image with my Copics:

Egg: C1 COO

Stripes: V17, V15, V12, RV34, RV32, RVll, BG18, BG15

Bunnies: E55, E53, E51

Butterflies: YR02, E93

Bow Tie: YG13, YG11

Grass: YG17, YG13, YG11

Here is a picture of card folded.

 

To finish the card, I added the paper flowers from my stash to the bottom of the image.

Now, create a Easter or Spring card and join the challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.

Bitten by the Bug 2- Fairy Tale Challenge

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 with a Fairy Tale theme.  Think about all the stories you enjoyed as a child like Cinderella or Peter Pan.

Fun Fact: Did you know there are over 500 versions of Cinderella in many different languages and cultures.  

I chose to create a project for Peter Pan, because I loved these cute fairies.

I used a file from Miss Kate's Cuttables and cut the fairies from permanent vinyl.  I then added them to the side of a stemless wine glass to make a little light.

Now, it is your turn.  Create a fairy tale inspired project with your cricut and join us at Bitten By The Bug 2.

Love to Craft Challenge- Anything Goes

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

It is April 1st and that means we have a new Anything Goes Challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.  Today I have a fun fold card I tried out to share with you.

I love sloths and I love coffee, so this was a fun card to create.  This is the card folded up.  It makes a 4 x 4 square card when it is folded up.

Here is the card laying flat.


I used Echo Park's Coffee pattern paper in 6 x 6 sheets for the pattern paper.  I then colored the sloth with the coffee cup from Kindred Stamps with my Copics.

Here are the two ends of the card.



The sentiments are from the Echo Park paper pack.

I loved this new technique and will probably use it again.

Bitten By The Bug 2- Easter or Bunnies Challenge

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Welcome to a new project I created for the Bitten By the Bug 2 challenge for the next two weeks, with an Easter theme.  I love Easter and couldn't wait to create something beautiful. 

I used a free SVG from Love SVG to create the cross for the canvas.


I then cut the flowers from the Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cartridge and cut them at different sizes.  The leaves I cut from the Spellbinders Foilage die set in different shades of green.

 


I placed the flowers on the canvas and glued them on with hot glue. 

 

 

To finish the project, I added some Stickles to the flower petals and cut and placed a few leaves inbetween the flowers.

I love how it came out and can't wait to decorate for Easter.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment, then create your own Easter or bunny project and share it with us at Bitten by The Bug 2.

Stampin Friends Blog Hop- Monochromatic March

 

Welcome to the Stampin Friends Blog Hop.  This month and the theme is Birthday Celebration. If you are following along the hop, you should have arrived from Maureen Rauchfuss' blog.  Make sure to read through my blog, comment below and then continue to Jo Blackman'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 projects I created for our Monochromatic March theme.   

If you know me, you know I love pink, so of course I would pick pink for my Monochromatic color.

 

I used 2 different pieces of pink cardstock from my stash to create the card base.  I then stamped the flower from Cottage Bouquet stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey (retired) with pink ink.  I then stamped one whole flower on another piece of pick cardstock.

I added some pink satin ribbon to the left side of the card and to add interest I tied some pink bakers twine around sections of the ribbon.

 

I finished the card by stamping the sentiment from the same stamp set and added some pink pearls to the card front.

For my project, I wanted to create a small little box to match the card.  So I pulled out my small milk carton die.

I can't wait to fill this little box and give it to a friend.  I used the same supplies as above, but used grey ink on white cardstock for the flower I placed on the top.  I attached the flower to the box by wrapping some pink bakers twine around the top of the box and tying the flower in.

Here are the card and box together.  


Aren't they cute together?  I hope it brings a smile to my friend who receives it.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment and then check out all the other incredible projects from the other ladies this month.
