Shabby Steampunk Top Hat


Hello everyone! It's a September IAR Designer Challenge over at the I Am Roses Challenge Blog today. The theme is Steampunk and the challenge is to include a Butterfly in your project. Soo.....here is my Shabby Steampunk Top Hat!


Most steampunk projects lean toward darker colors but I decided to go a shabby route. I created a top hat from scratch (i'll try and see if I can record a tutorial with the measurements). I used a plain cardstock base and layered papers from Prima. The mini gears are from Tim Holtz, so cute! The butterfly element was white and I sprayed it with Lindy's Stamp Gang Flat Fabio in T-bird Turquoise. 

All the flowers are from I Am Roses (White Spray, Pink Curly Roses, S10 Flowers, 1" Roses, Fern Leaves and Skeleton Leaves).


There is a wire coil in the white spray, I stretched it out and created a heart shape. Lastly, I trimmed a clock wood veneer in half and inserted it behind the flowers.

Hope you enjoyed this project. Come join in on the fun and enter to win some fabulous flowers over at the IAR Challenge Blog!

GOOD LUCK!!

Happy Owl-O-Ween!


Hey everyone! There's a new challenge up and here is my project share. I am in Halloween mode, here's another card for you today.

I'm using Jillibean Soup's Owloween 6x6 Paper Pad and coordinating Pea Pod Die Cuts. The new challenge is "Anything Goes w/an Optional Twist - Die-licious", use more than 1 die. For this card, I used three dies: Echo Park Sun & CloudsLawn Fawn Chit Chat Dies, Mama Elephant Landscape Trio. The sentiment is from Darcie's Heart & Home Owl-O-Ween stamp set.

I popped up several of the die cuts on dimentional foam dots. For added detail, I doodled some faux stitching along the border.



This was extremely fun using different dies to make this card. Give it a try and join our challenge over at the 7 Kids Challenge Blog.

Have a crafty weekend!

Owl Be Your Punkin' Forever


Good morning! I'm sharing my card using the Darcie's Heart & Home Owl-O-Ween stamp set. Several owls and sentiments are included but I chose these two. The owl is wearing a pumpkin. I colored it with my Copics and added some shimmer with the Wink of Stella Clear pen. These are absolutely my favorite word bubble dies, Lawn Fawn Chit Chat Dieswhich fits most sentiments.

The owl is nestled on some grass, I used the image from Lawn Fawn Critters in the Savannah, that I stamped multiple times. The  piece of designer paper is from Jillibean Soup Owloween and I used orange sequins from a Mixed Sequins pack.


I'm in Halloween mode now =) Can't wait to use more of the images from this set. Thanks for stopping by and have a gorgeous day!

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.

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!

Thanks for stopping by. Make sure to check out the current challenge over at the 7Kids Challenge Blog.
