Happy Everything

For my OCS Post Scroll down or click here
 Thanks again for stopping back to my blog, I have one more card to share with you.  A Birthday for my friend who will be celebrating in November.  I wanted it to be bright and cheery not winter or Christmas look to it.  I haven't used my Birdbrain images in a while so created with them.  I also wanted to share my love of flowers, sparkle, hope you can see it there.  Wink of Stella is a favorite of mine now.  Oh and my long time friend, Lori introduced me to the Lil' Inkers dies, oh I love these too.  They are so awesome, stitched around the edges.  I will be putting more on my wish list.  Thanks friend!  I added my flowers and some bling, copic markers were used.  Thanks again for stopping by.

Double Dutch Fold Christmas Cards

 Hi friends, and welcome back, I have been playing around with some different folding cards.  I seen a few around and wanted to share what I have created.  The tutorial I started with is from the amazing The Outlawz Challenge, thanks to them my first one is really my second attempt, as the first real one is a 5x6 and I thought this one would work great also as a A2 size card. 
 I am using my paper pack from Heartfelt Creations, love this paper.  I had a few details here and there, but for the most part pretty simple.
 This is the first card I made and it is 5x6 once it is completed.
 I added some spellbinder border on the bottom, some pearls.  Used my wink of stella pen to give a few places some sparkle.

 Entering my cards in the following challenges:
Anything Goes with a Twist - #3ATG with Shimmer/Sparkle
Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - #33 Use your Imagination
Sister Act Card Challenge - #79 Anything Goes

Happy Birthday #216 4CC

 
 Hello and welcome back to my blog, today our challenge is hosted by our wonderful chick Tamie over at 4 Crafty Chicks is Birthday, and I wanted to try something a wee bit different.  It didn't work out as planned, but I will show you the card I made.  
What I did was stamped the flowers using black versafine and added clear embossing powder and heated it up, the paper I used is Vellum.  The texture on there is great, and then I cut them out with Spellbinders and started to curl the petals on the flowers so they have dimension using my stylus.  Started to look great.  
 Then as I am putting them together the black ink/embossing powder is fall off.  So little flicks of black everywhere.  So not sure that it works on the Vellum very well.  I finished the card anyways, to show you how I did this.  I used some spellbinders and some gold brush card-stock and added a butterfly.

Fun Crafting


 Hello Friends, I have been busy getting my cards together and a few other projects to sell at the local craft sale on October 25th.  I am using the card boxes for a few door prizes too.  I like how the Starbucks coffee gift card holder looks, you could make these pretty fast.  The card boxes hold 4 A2 cards with envelopes, and the 3.5 x 3.5 cards in the bottom one.  I would next time make the cards 3x3 or 4x4, the envelopes were hard to make the correct size.  The Christmas Tree was using 1/2 inch stripes of paper, you could make this with scraps or whatever Christmas paper you have.  I like the double sided Bo Bunny Paper that I have in my scrap bin. 

 Thanks again for stopping and I hope you get into your craft room and get crafty!
