Artfully Sent meets Frozen

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...Well today when Helen came over she said she had a Great Grand daughter Kaydence that was turning 6 on Sunday.  Happy Birthday Kaydence!  So I ask my usual questions.  What is her favorite thing.  Answer: Frozen.  So that is where we started.
Anna is her favorite.  Helen wanted to make her a pop-card so we used Artfully Sent and found one that work.  We used the Love Bug card.  I just ungrouped it and deleted everything but the card base and inside with the cut makes.
I used the Cut then Print for the Anna and we also cut out some snowflakes from Frozen too for the inside.

For the front we used the Happy Birthday sentiment from page 36 of the Artfully Sent handbook #M10678E for the Explore. We cut it down so there is a border around it. The 6th is from an image search cut out in carnary along with the cupcake frosting and candle flame.

Wine Bottle Make Over

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I have not shown you any of my Home Decor lately.  I happen to have a couple of empty wine bottles and I have seen them covered with twine and other things.  So when I saw the ones on page 8 of the new Seasonal Inspiration 2 idea book I knew I wanted to make one.  So this is what I did.

I used the Glacier Extra Thick Twine and wrapped it around the center of the bottle.  It took the entire packet.  The flower ribbon is from my stash and so are the bigger flowers.  The center of the flower are Bling Gold Gems.  The burlap ribbon is also from my stash.  I still have a clear one to do so you will have to wait for that one.

Don't forget that I am doing a fundraiser for Relay for Life Clayton.  I am donating 2% of all my sales for April 2015 so be sure to join in and help out.

Wavy Bloom D1651 and Blossom Paper Pack

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I love the new Seasonal Inspirations 2 idea book.  It has things that make you very happy in it.  I have fun shading in the flowers for Wavy Bloom D1651 from page 12.  I used the Blossom Paper pack and backed it with Black and Chrystal Blue and place it on a Daisy White card.  I use some Washi Tape from my stash folded it in half to make it thinner and made some tails too.

The flower is stamped in Black then the fun begins.  I use our ShinHan markers Light Orange, Pastel Green, Marigold.  On the leaf I used Leaf Green, Sap Green.  I cut it out and shaped it then I used a glue dot to attach it to the card.  I used the Bling Gold Gem in the center of the flower.  I stamped the sentiment in Black and it was done.  This was a fun and fast card and as you can see you could make it too.

Thanks for stopping by!

Hostess Rewards C1613 Paper Bird

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...I just love this Hostess Rewards C1613 Paper Bird stamp set it is so versatile. I can see many uses for it.  I used the Jackson Paper pack and made a manly card.
How do you get a Hostess Rewards stamp set you ask?  Well its simple just place an order for $150.00 of more and you can purchase any of the Hostess Rewards stamp on pages 5-10 in the Annual Inspiration book or pages 4-5 in the Seasonal Inspirations 2 book.

I sponge the bird in Pacifica on Daisy White cardstock and then sponged over it in Chrystal Blue. I cut a triangle in Colonial White and a larger one in Outdoor Denim the Greetings is stamped in Chrystal Blue and sponged over it in the Chrystal Blue to, that is hard to see in the picture.  I used some sequins from my stash. I use a Black sparkle for the bird's eye. I popped the bird up on 3-D Foam tape

April Stamp of the Month Typed Note S1504

April's Stamp of the Month Typed Noted S1504 is a fun one.  I was playing around with the Fundamental Paper pack and decided to use it with the SOTM.  The Typewriter is so cute I knew when I was done that I would have to take pictures of it using one of my old hand crank telephone with the mouth piece.  I love antiques!  
You can get the SOTM for only $5.00 when you purchase $50.00 or more.  You can also buy it outright for $17.95.  This month you can also purchase the Deal of the Day and that will qualify you for the SOTM too.  

I made an assorted batch of note cards.  I think they turned out cute and I love the Fundamental Paper pack too.  That is the on of the new Washi Tapes on the side of each card.

Here is a Thank you card with a Pixie Typewriter.

This is the Birthday one with a Chrystal Blue Typewriter

A Hello Card with a Pear Typewriter.

Just for you card with a Canary Typewriter.

I used Daisy White. Kraft cardstock for the cards.  

Inks were Pixie, Canary, Chrystal Blue, and Pear.  

When you order on my website this month I will be donating 20% of my sales to Relay For Life Clayton.
