Scallop Border A2 Card - Fall

I made this fun Fall card with a decorative fabric flower to share today.
The fabric flower was fun to make and could be removed for a hair bow if so desired.
(That is a project for another day).
I used the Scallop Border A2 card , Flowering Flourished SU, Soft Suede ink, Autumn Spice Digital Paper from SU, Cardstock, Brads, Oval punches, Fall Fabric from Walmart, the new clear buttons from Epiphany Crafts and twine to complete this card.

ribbon of hope

hi there!  it's the last saturday in october, so i thought i would make a card in support of breast cancer awareness.  i love how it turned out.  i started with a gate fold card in kraft. then i stamped the flap with a background image from unity.  added the "hope" sentiment by susan weckesser.  then i inked the edges of the awareness ribbon #2 small and attached it to the flap.  added a little bling.  last i inked the edges of a piece of white cardstock and adhered it to the inside to write on.

i used a cool new (to me!) velcro closure.  makes it handy if you accidentally lose the band that goes around the card.  but who would do that??  

have a good weekend and hope you can spend some time getting crafty!

Bonne Fete Slider Card

I used a die cut sliding Pop Up card from Creative Cuts and More to showcase this beautiful French Flower Cart Clear Stamp Set by Stampendous.

I colored the image with Spectrum Noir Markers:

 Pink: PP3-PP2-PP1
Grey: BG3-BG1
Beige: EB2-EB1
Green: CG2-CG1
Purple: HB3-HB1
Brown: TN1-TN2 
Here's a closer look at it before you slide it open.

When you pull on the ribbon the card slides open.

Here's what it looks like when it's open all the way.

I stamped the inside sentiment with VersaMark ink and embossed with
Detail White Embossing Powder.

Thanks for stopping by today!
Have a great rest of the week!

Halloween Sliding Pop Up

Today I created a simple Halloween card to share with you using the
Sliding Pop Up card from Creative Cuts and More

Closed view
I made this card horizontal and used a spiderweb embossing folder I found at Hobby Lobby
Inked it with Gumball green. (everyone that sees it thinks its inked with black!!)
And I used the fun new stamp set Googly Gouls from SU

Here is the open version. I kept trying to put more in the center but it was just best plain.
I sooooo wanted a haunted house in the background but I couldn't find one that I could get the card to close
My silhouette cuts were to bulky and I didn't have a stamp of a haunted house.
So I went with the "less is more" but I had to use all the little guys in the stamp set on this card.
Too bad wigglie eyes are not flat!!!

Hope you like it..
Have a great day,

halloween treats

howdy!! it's almost halloween, can you believe it? me either. so i decided to make a little halloween treat box. because it will come in handy very soon!!

i started with a square bag #01 large in white. then i inked it up with some rusty hinge distress ink. i added some alternating patterned paper on the front of the box (mostly because i love the orange and white polka dots!) i added a few stars from a cool distressed star stamp from unity to the patterned paper. then stamped some pumpkins and the sentiment (both from studio g) on a little half cut out. attached it with the tiny attacher to some muslin that i had inked up. then mounted it with foam tape to the box. added a little twine and more muslin at the top and viola!!

have a good weekend and hope you can spend some time getting crafty!

Whoop dee dooo Birthday Bag

I have a fun birthday bag to share with you today!

This Large Square Bag is a great size for a gift card or small gift.

To make this gift bag I started with a Large Square bag die cut from Creative Cuts and More. 
I placed three clear stamps on my block to make it easier and quicker to stamp all over the die cut bag with VersaMark ink.

After randomly stamping all over the bag with VersaMark I embossed the images with kaleidoscope embossing powder.

Then I put the bag together with Killer White Tacky Tape.

I colored my image, Balloon Kiddo, by Stampendous with Spectrum Noir Markers. 
There are step by step coloring directions on my personal Blog.

 I punched the grass with my Fiscars grass border punch and adhered it to the bottom of the box.  
Then I fussy cut out the boy and adhered him to the bag.
The words are from Birthday Assortment clear stamps by Stampendous.

The finished bag would be a great way to give any small gift to a young boy!

Happy Crafting!

I love a FUN card!!

Hello, it is Noelle posting today!
I love the Sliding Pop-Up Card, it is one of my favorite cards!
Above it what it looks like closed, and below is how it looks popped out! 
I didn't use the layer because I just wanted the banners to show behind the balloons when they popped up when the card was opened!  The stamps are all by Unity.  Banner Moments, 10/12 SMAK and Whimsical Birthday.
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

Halloween Gable Box

Today I have a fun Halloween Gable Box to share with you.  
This would be fun to give to a friend full of Halloween candy!

I started by assembling a black Tall Gable Box die cut from Creative Cuts and More with killer white Tacky Tape.

I embossed a panel of Papaya core-dinations card stock with my Sizzix Pocket Watches embossing folder.  I used my Core-dinations sanding block to knock off the color on the raised parts.  Then I sponged on Black Soot Distress ink before adhering the papaya panel to the box.

I used Beacon Zip Dry paper glue to glue on Trick or Treat Color Fragments.
I stamped the Cling Halloween Magic image on a piece of smooth white cardstock and colored it with my Spectrum Noir Markers. 
 Hair: TN7-TN5-TN3-TN2
Dress: TN3-GB7-GB4-CT3-CT2
Greys: BG6-BG4-BG2
 Skin: TN2-TN1-EB1
and...I used some detail gold embossing powder on the watch and gear.

The fabulous ribbon is May Arts!

These Tall Gable Boxes are a terrific way to give candy, a gift card, or any small gift.  And they are so fun to decorate!

Thanks for stopping by!

naughty. nice. or not sure

Hello, it is Noelle posting today and it is already 11:00.  Blogger decided to crash my computer every time I tried to log on.  FYI: Un-instaling Google Toolbar has me back in action.
So this will be short!
I used the Four Pane Window A7 Scallop Card and I always think it is a fun card to make.  That giant gingham is by Bo Bunny and that is what started the card.  I used stickles and a Unity stamp set called naughty. nice. not sure.  
My problems with this card didn't start with Blogger it started with the paper!  LOL  I glued it on upside down.  All the trees were upside down so I had to peel it off and flip it over and glue it again and then I saw the light green trees so I flipped it over and saw the dark green trees.  Then I promptly decided this is the worst paper I have ever worked with and left it as it LOL  Whoever gets this card if they say the paper is upside down isn't it I will belly ache laugh and answer honestly, I have no stinkin' idea!  LOL
Thank you for stopping by today!!
