A Beam of Sunlight

This sweet image is from QKR, normally I get the silly ones they have, but being a lover of butterflies, I had to have this one!!  :)  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I chose to keep this CAS, so it is only the one layer with some sequins and a bow to top it off.  I colored this with chalk.

another fun fold

This is an "Open Center Box Card", made using the pre-colored images and paper from a fun set by The Paper Shelter called Friends Over The Rainbow.  I found this idea on HEREYou can find the links for written measurements there.  For the front I used the same paper and also some dies.  My favorite thing about this card is that it is flat for mailing!

Golf Frustration

This fun image is from QKR, love this old guy!!  The two sided paper is from Stampin Up.  I also used a fun embossing folder and some twine.  I added some gold gems and some Glossy Accnets over his glasses and on the golf ball, otherwise, I kept this fairly simple.

Mermaid Birthday Gift

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided I needed to give it a try.  I purchased a small fish bowl and some glass gems, poured the gems into the bowl then got to work on the scene.  The images are from a Fred She Said set called Emma The Mermaid.  I printed out the images, then printed them again flipped so that I could have the fish bowl two sided.  I used toothpicks between the two sides so they could poke into the glass gems.  I used some hemp twine around the rim and cut out the word dies from a sticker sheet.

Dragonfly Double Slider Card

The first challenge of this new year over at Crafting With Dragonflies is "Anything Goes".  I decided I needed to use a Dragonfly die for the new year's challenge!  :)  I love the double slider technique!  For this one I didn't use any stamps.  I used dies, flowers, gems, pearls and ribbon.

This fortnight over at Incy Wincy Designs the challenge theme is "create a tag or any occasion".  We have two sponsors this fortnight Scrap N' Dipity and Limited Runs Stamps.

I did two projects, one for each sponsor.  My first project was made using the Limited Runs image.  I sort of went a little bit steampunk with this one.  I made it into a pocket card and added TWO tags.  I used a steampunk clock die, some cogs, gems, pearls and flowers.  The image was colored using glitter gel pens, I decided since the card came out so girly I added a bow to the robot guy.  LOL


This next card was made using a Scrap N' Dipity image, a frame die, embossing folder, some gems, ribbon, staples and a sentiment from Create With TLC.  I kept this very simple.

No Talkie Before Coffee!

I won a couple fun images from Dr Digi, I picked Caffeinated Craig and Caffeinated Colinda   You can also get the sentiment set (used on this card) for an additional .50 if you get the pair, or purchase it separately.

I colored the two images using ink and gel pen.  Coated the cups and eyes with Glossy Accents.  I added some Stickles on the donut.  For the card, I kept it simple, I used an embossing folder and ran the brown through the paper crimper.  My final touch was the twine bow.

BEAUTIFUL BIRTHDAY

Polkadoodles has some wonderful bundles, and they're on sale, then on sale a little more (30% more) by using the code CELEBRATE, this sale is good through the end of January.  I purchased this Top Banana Winnie Celebrate set.  It has papers, images, and so much more!!  I used this cute image and two of the papers from the set to make this card.

I added lots of layers to this card.  I used several dies, flowers, cheese cloth, heart shaped gems and a bow.

Friendship, Coffee, Thanks

As I noted in my last post, I won a $12 gift certificate to the Bugaboo shop.  This was from a fun little set called Chihuahua Puppy Set.  The sentiment is from Create With TLC.  I also used an edge punch and a sentiment die.  I added Glossy accents to the dogs' noses and googlie eyes just for the fun of it.  I did decorate the inside  with a couple simple layers, nothing too fancy.  For the layout I used the sketch from Stella Says Sketch.

Friend Cards

Today I won $12 from Bugaboo stamps.  I printed three of them out and made two cards.  Both cards include a sentiment from Create With TLC.

This first card has two fun "side peek" images on it.  I added some gems, DP and a edge punched strip.


This next one has a fun Princess image on it she is called Belle of the Ball.  I added die cut heart and square, some lace, a bow, some flowers, some heart gems and some flourish gems.

I survived the holidays!

I hope you all survived the holidays unscathed.  It know it has been a tough year for a lot of us.  I started my New Years Eve off right this year, since I drive for Uber and Lyft I decided to make it a goal to get people home safe last night.  During a slow moment I stopped at a location to 'relieve' myself and decided to buy a lottery ticket...I won $500!!  :)  Don't ask me if I'm going to go buy more crafting supplies!  Especially since I'm sure you already know the answer!  haha  I wish you and yours the best for 2018!

Now, onto my card...

I love this fun sentiment from Create With TLC!!  And isn't this such an adorable snowman image from QKR?  The background paper is from Bearly Mine, the digi tree is from Scrapbooks Gone Digital.  I added some flowers and bling.  I used blue and orange to color the image since I live in Bronco territory (that would be Boise State University).


Thanks for looking!  Happy 2018!
