Paper Smooches Pals


For this card I used the Paper Smooches Chubby Critter stamp set. Starting at the bottom of the stack, and using a card I saw on the internet as an example, I stamped the puppy first.  I stamp and then trimmed off some of each of the top of each critter onto a thin piece of cardstock to use as masking later. You can see the masking piece still in place in my 3rd pic.  Then I colored with my copics and used a color combo that was more masculine. Used Bazzill cardstock for my card base with fussy cutting on one side. Love these adorable critters and am so in love in the way it turned out. Hope you enjoy it too!!
Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Week #131-For white space and layered colorful (like the kids' outfits) critters instead of mountains. The fiber to match the branches of the tree.

My Mind's Eye Follow Your Heart layout Page 2


I made this layout to match with the other page previously shown, using My Mind's Eye Follow your Hearts collection. Again, pieces of the papers that have been fussy cut and then adhered to a peach colored Bazzill cardstock.  Tons of fun! Also, used a left over Cricut cut word I had left over. Don't know the font offhand.
Challenges I am entering with this layout: 
Loved all the collage of patterns, including flowers and cursive title which are seen in my layout.

DCWV Candy Cane Lane & Holiday Glitzy Glitter Christmas layout

Paper Crafter's Corner Magazine Monday #127: Ornaments used in the upper right & Cursive titles.
Using the fabulous DCWV Stacks, Candy Cane Lane and Holiday Glitzy Glitter, I made this fabulous Christmas Layout.  The sketch was a little complicated but I decided that I really LOVED this Poinsettia paper and fussy cut the flowers from one sheet and added it to the other sheet.  May Arts silver glitzy string was put through a Xyron x for it to become sticky to attach to the page to make them look like ornaments.  The title was made using the Cricut Explore in Design Space with my Christmas cartridge for this beautiful sentiment in cursive. Other papers were added as well to follow the sketch. Hope you are having a wonderful holiday and enjoying your family and friends as I am.  God bless and Merry Christmas!

PaperCrafter's Corner Blog Challenge and Giveaway!!

    I was inspired by the magazine cover below! Such an adorable picture of the hustle and bustle of a busy shopping mall!! See all those packages the man is carrying? Well, that's what gave me the idea to make decorative packages for this week's challenge.
   The first package above is made with die cutting and inking the white poinsettias with Cranberry ink from Clearsnap. Tied with twice, once with red ribbon, and then twine. This makes it easy to get into the package by sliding the twine upward.
  The second is made from DCWV Candy Cane Lane (obviously) which has gorgeous glitter papers which I used to "Upcycle" a cheese box. This took the longest since I didn't have washi tape for the sides I took time to precisely cut and matchup the diagonal stripe paper cut to size. Using satin ribbon tied in a bow and an adorable striped button atop.
    The third is a die cut gift card holder with another die cut snowflake from glitter paper and decorative bling centered. Now I have 3 gorgeous packages ready for Christmas!!
Also, Paper Crafter's Corner is having the infamous 12 Days of Christmas for all of us Paper Crafters out there. Make sure to play along!!! Good luck! And Merry Christmas! 
Also, 12 days of Christmas here: Starting Dec.6th-Dec.17th!! Good luck everyone!

Anna Griffin Christmas Card of 2015

After seeing the first Christmas inspired magazine cover for 2015, I began working on getting my supplies out to play with to make some cards! This card is made from Anna Griffin images, and embellishments, all combined together. The layers include: a gold ATC card, rosette with an ornament on top, then a bow, and an angel holding a tree image. All of this is attached to the card base. I folded the rosette and arranged it all. I love the vintage feel and quality of her products, and it was a joy to use them. I felt that the Angel holding the tree reminded me of the tree on the cover and the rosette reminded me of all the circles on it. Hope you enjoy it!
