My Time to Craft ~ Birds!

Hi Crafty Friends,
Our My Time to Craft Challenge # 406 is BIRDS.  We hope you have a good time with this one?
I just love The Rabbit Hole Designs caffeinated critters and the flamingo is just so much fun.
Here she is, happy with her coffee!
I used Whimsy Stamps shaker dies for this card along with a banner die from La-La Land Crafts.  
The caffeinated flamingo was colored using Copic markers and cut out using my Scan N Cut2 machine.

I hope you'll join us for our BIRD challenge.

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #438 ~ Just Because or RAK

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today's project for Die Cuttin' Divas is a coffee gift card holder that I'll use as a "just because" gift for a friend.

Isn't this coffee-themed paper fabulous?  It's from Echo Park.  The Coffee Slider die set is from Jaded Blossom.  I used the scalloped sleeve die from the companion set and used JB's gift card die on the insert.  The sentiments are also from Jaded Blossom.  I can't wait to share this sweet gift.

Please join us this week and share your RAK or Just Because ideas.

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge 437 ~ Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

We're celebrating BIRTHDAYS at Die Cuttin' Divas.

You can never have too many bday cards in your stash.
August was La-La Land Crafts 5th Birthday so the monthly Club Kit was a special edition created especially for birthdays.  I used two of the dies for this card.

There are just so many ways you can use these dies - this is just my first go at them.
The shaker window was created using Whimsy Stamps shaker maker rectangle die set.

I hope you'll play along with us this week.

My Time to Craft challenge #405 ~ Anything but a Card

Hi Crafty Friends,

Time for Friday's second post - My Time to Craft Challenge 405.

Although it's still really hot in my part of the country it's time to start thinking about fall and Halloween.  I used Jaded Blossom's Paper Bag Die for this cute little Halloween gift bag.

I'm such a fan of Authentique papers. I loved the way these went together.  I think the graphic is perfect for the sentiment from a set I found in my stash by Bug Bites (not sure if it's available any longer.)  Just some Crafter's Spool twine and a few gems and I call it ready to gift!

I hope you'll share your Anything BUT a Card projects with us.


Cut it Challenge # 182 ~ Farm Friends

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our sponsor, Scrappy Dew, has provided us with cute cut files to use for
Cut it Up Challenge Blog's  Farm Friends challenge.

This adorable little donkey is from Scrappy Dew's FARM Pack which is full of great farm files.

I used my Silhouette to cut the donkey and then used Jaded Blossom's Barn Dies for the rest of the scene cut out using the Gemini Jr.  The sentiment is from JB's Udderly Adorable set.

I hope you'll join us for this challenge and visit Scrappy Dew to see their fun and fabulous files.

Die Cuttin' Divas #436 ~ Sketch Challenge

Hi Crafty Friends,

It's time for Die Cuttin' Divas first challenge of the month.

You'll find the sketch for this challenge at the end of the post.

Here's my card.

I ordered an entire set of Crafter's Companion Circle Sentiments and loved that the sketch lent itself perfectly to the Birthday set.  It came with a cupcake stamp but I chose the beer mug from CC's advent calendar dies from last year instead since I wanted a masculine card.  The sentiment is from a Jaded Blossom set and the flag dies are from La-La Land Crafts.  The patterned papers are Doodlebug Designs.

Here's the sketch for you to follow.

I love sketch challenges because it's makes it easier for me to design around predetermined layout.
I hope you'll join us in this challenge.

Pearly Sparkles Monthly Challenge ~ Add a Ribbon and/or Bow

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to September!!! Oh my, how can that be?  Guess it's time to head to the shed to start bringing out fall decorations - woohoo!

This month at Pearly Sparkles we're sharing projects that have ribbon and/or bows on them.  
I love ribbon but I seem to go in cycles using it.

Here's another card I made using Zig Clean Color brush pens..  It's simple yet I think it's really pretty.  I love purple and turquoise and the pop of pink is just an added surprise.  The patterned paper and ribbon came in one of my Crafter's Companion kits.

I hope you'll join our monthly challenge.  Just follow the link above.

Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge 435 ~ Thinking of You

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas is THINKING OF YOU.

Along with birthday cards, I feel you can never have too many of these cards in your stash.

You know how much I love using Copic Markers for my projects but I'm trying to branch out and master new skills.  Today's card is a simple tag which I created using Zig Clean Color water color brush pens.  I love the way it turned out but I must admit that this isn't an easy technique for me because I tend to over-color! EEEK!  As Elsa says, I need to "Let it Go!"

This ribbon is some homemade crinkle ribbon which I made using bias tape and distress stain.

I hope you'll join our challenge this week.  Just follow the DCD link above.
