Owloween Treats

Hello! It's time for a new challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog - "Anything Goes". I'm obsessed on how easy it is to use the WRMK Pillow Box Punch Board. I made birthday treats on a previous post, now I made these cute Halloween treats.

The paper is new from Jillibean Soup - Owloween and I used the coordinating die cuts Owloween Pea Pod Parts. I adhered everything with Glossy Accents. I still have plenty of paper & die cuts to make more!

Here is a quick and easy tutorial of how to make one of these HERE.

Come join us for this new challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!
Have a beautiful day!

You Can Do It!

Good morning! It's my turn over at the Avocado Arts Blog and I am sharing projects using the You Can Do It stamp set. How fun is this set?

Here we go!

Card 1: You Are #1
I made this cute baby boy birthday card. I joined the "You Are" and the "#1" images and stamped them on a die cut onsie. I wrapped a brown satin ribbon with a button for the center around the card. I used soft blues and brown for my color choices. I pretty much stuck to this color theme for all three projects.

Card 2: You Can Do It
For my second card, it has a gift card on the front. The card is a school theme using the "You Can Do It" sentiment. Just a little gift card for a bit of motivation for your first day of school. I had a notebook paper embossing folder and adhered it with dimentional pop dots. Using the "Pencil" image from the set, I paper pieced it 3x with patterned paper and inserted them in the gift card pocket to one side. It kind of makes it look like a pocket protector. I wrapped some twine and added a button around the pocket.

Project 3: One Smart Cookie
Lastly, this is not a card but I made a cute little cookie gift box. I just got this small box die and wanted to use it right away. The sentiment "One Smart Cookie" was perfect! I cut out a little banner for the sentiment and placed it on top of a rosette die. A brown satin ribbon is tied around the box for the lid closure. Cutest presentation for one cookie, would you eat it? LOL.

Those are my projects for you and I hope you were inspired to craft today! 

Party Favors

Happy August! I am using the We R Memory Keepers Pillow Box Punch Board. This is the easiest thing to make. Just follow the instructions and you can make so many sizes. These make the perfect party favors. 

The sentiments are from Lawn Fawn Awesome. I used the coordinating stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn Bannerific and Bannerific Custom DiesFor a simple embellishment, I just used a TH Rosette die with kraft paper. I am soo going to make these favors for a crop party. 

Just a simple and fun project for you today. If you haven't have this punch board in your tool aresenal, you are missing out LOL. 

Have a crafty weekend. Don't forget to join our current challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog!

7 Kids College Fund Challenge: Anything Goes w/Twist

Happy Wednesday! A new challenge is up over at the 7Kids Challenge Blog. The challenge is "Anything Goes - with an Optional Twist (Get Wordy)". Really simple, use a sentiment.

Today I created a Christmas card. What?! Yep, I started on holiday cards, yikes! I used this cute mini set from Lawn Fawn - Winter Owl. He is so cute and all snuggly in his scarf. For the Sentiment Twist, I used the one included in the set and cut it out with Lawn Fawn - Chit Chat Dies. I love these word bubble dies, I can use them with lots of sentiments in my stamp stash. The background is clean and uncluttered by using an embossing folder from Darice - Birch Tree. The green chevron paper is from Echo Park - Summer Bliss and I cut it with a landscape die. Lastly, I wrapped some baker's twine and added a button to the card.

Here is a close up of the scarf that I colored with the Wink of Stella Pen in Clear. A subtle shimmer is perfect. The End!

I {Heart} Mermaids

Good Morning everyone! It's Saturday...again and it's my turn on the 7 Kids Store Blog. Here's my card using Magnolia's Pisces Tilda. I love mermaids, and I just had to add her to my collection. She looks so cute just chillin' on her lilypad.

I colored her with my Copics but didn't have the right pink in my collection. So as an alternative, I used the pinks from the BIC Mark-It Permanent Markers 24 Assorted Mix. They blended beautifully. For the water, I used some green and blue shimmer chalks. Using Liquid Pearls in White Opal, I gave her a pearl headband. With a few taps on the back of the card while the pearls are wet, it flattens the peaks of the liquid.

The flower is from Petaloo Burlap Blossoms - Pistachio. It went well with the beachy theme. I pulled the silver sequins from the Sulyn Assorted Sequins Mix. I think the bling went well with the pearls and shells. I also added a string of pearls from an old necklace along with cheese cloth in the background.

This is my crafty share for you today, please take some time to join us at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog.

7 Kids College Fund Challenge - Anything Goes

Happy Hump Day! A new challenge begins at the  7Kids Challenge Blog.

It's "Anything Goes" and I used Hula Hula Tilda, Sun & Cloud Dies from Echo Park and Sequins! Tilda is colored with Copics and accented with Wink of Stella Clear. She's a little pale to be a hula girl, but give her time =)

The "Sunny", sun and cloud are all from the Echo Park - Sun & Cloud Dies. On the cloud I used a polka dot embossing folder for some dimension. These dies cut like buttah! I had to add sequins for a lil' sparkle.

Friends 4 Ever

Friends 4 Ever! Happy Weekend! I'm sharing my card using Write a Message Tilda. She's holding a chalkboard and you can put any message on it. I found the perfect sized sentiment from Woodgrain Backdrops from Lawn Fawn. She is colored with my Copics and her outfit is accented with the Wink of Stella Clear pen. 

The paper I used is Echo Park - Summer Bliss. I kept this card simple but wanted to add a flower embellishment, Petaloo Burlap Blossoms - Ivory. New to the store are sequins! Sequins are the new rhinestones =) I chose orange sequins from Sulyn - Mixed Sequins pack.
