Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge #404 ~ 3D Project

Hi Crafty Friends,

Wow! Can you believe it's time to start crafting for Valentine's Day?
I decided to begin Vday projects with our Die Cuttin' Diva's 3D challenge.

I found this cute Pebbles 2-sided paper in my stash so I made this treat/gift box using the Jaded Blossom Gable Box die.  I also used LaLa Land Crafts Heart Lock and Key die set for embellishment.

Join in our challenge by following the link above.  Be sure to use a die cut and link back to the
Die Cuttin' Diva's blog.

Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge #403 ~ Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,

Have you found you can never have too many birthday cards in your stash?  Well, our DCD challenge this week will help you keep your stash full.

I chose a cute Stamping Bella image that I've had for quite awhile to create this birthday card.

I colored using Copic markers.  The die cuts include Spellbinders nesting pennants and Little B sentiments.

I look forward to seeing what you share.  Just follow the DCD link above to join our challenge.

My Time to Craft #388 ~ Winter Birthday

Hi Crafty Friends,
Our theme for this next challenge at My Time to Craft is Winter Birthday.
I made this card using some of my favorite dies and the La La Land digital stamp, Long Sweater Marci. Here it is:
I love using the white pearl linen cardstock.  I cut several of the dies out of both the linen cardstock and chip board to add some dimension.  I colored Marci using Copic markers with a touch of Signo white gel pen.  All of the dies were cut on the Gemini Jr.

Cut it Up Challenge #165 ~ How's the Weather?

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our Cut it Up Challenge theme is How's the Weather?
You can interpret it anyway you wish, weather icons, seasons, clothing, activities, etc.

Here's my card:

I used all La La Land Crafts stamps and dies on this one.  I colored Winter Molli using Copic markers.  For the scene I used Double stitched hills and Stitched clouds.  For the background I embossed one of the layering stencils from the It's Snowing set.  Yes, I said EMBOSSED!  It's a technique I've learned from Irina's make and takes - so much fun and I love the effect.

I hope you'll join in our challenge for a chance to win a $20 gift certificate from our sponsor,

Hi Crafty Friends,
Woohoo!  I'm so excited to announce that I am now a member of the
Die Cuttin' Divas design team.

Our January 1, 2019 challenge is a sketch challenge (you'll find the sketch below.)
Here's my first project as a DT member.
I enjoy giving coffee cards and personalized coffee mugs as gifts throughout the year so I know this card will be useful.
I used La La Land Crafts Coffee Cup die and also Stamp Annie Thing coffee bean stencil, La La Land Crafts coffee heart and skinny flag die, and Jaded Blossom's Java Time stamp set.

My Time to Craft #387 ~ Something New

Hi Crafty Friends,
Our challenge at My Time to Craft is Something New.  You can celebrate something new (home, baby, friend, etc.) or you can use something new.
I have purchased so many new dies over the last month and I just can't wait to use them so for my project I'm using my new La La Land Craft Club dies for December:  Retro telephone, and HELLO.
I think this Doodlebug Designs paper is the perfect background!
I hope you'll join our challenge by sharing SOMETHING NEW with us.

Cut it Up Challenge # 164 ~ New Year's Resolutions

Hi Crafty Friends,
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are looking forward to the New Year!
For last year's "Resolutions" challenge at Cut it Up Challenges I pledged to use my crafty planner to keep myself organized.  I want you to know that I have kept that resolution so I'm ready to share my new one for 2019.  I have been a designer on a Christmas card challenge team.  When it came time to mail out my cards there was no last minute scramble to have a card for everyone on our list.  I was so happy.  So, even though that particular challenge blog has closed down, my resolution is to continue to make Christmas cards throughout the year.  
Here's my first Christmas card for next year's stash using one of the Xmas Mice digi images from our sponsor, Kitten Scraps.
The image was colored with Copic markers.  I used Jaded Blossom's stitched rectangles for the mats and La La Land Crafts Christmas trees to embellish.
Follow the Cut it Up Challenge link above to join in our New Year's Resolutions/Goals challenge.
Don't forget to use a die cut!
Wishing you a very Happy New Year 2019!

Kitty Bee Designs ~ DT Spotlight

Hi Crafty Friends,

Today I'm sharing my December spotlight project for Kitty Bee Designs using Snow Penguin.

I just love this cute image!  I die cut the octagon from the mat and added dimensional tape to pop the layer up on the card base.  Then I flipped the cut out over and popped the image on it before adding it back into the mat. The Octagon dies are from Jaded Blossom. I used Copic markers to color the image and added some sparkle to the pom poms and snowball using Stickles Frosted Lace.  The sentiment is also from Jaded Blossom stamped onto a flag die from LaLa Land Crafts.

This is my final spotlight for Kitty Bee Designs.  I have loved sharing all of these fabulous images and am so thankful to Kel for allowing me to be a member of the design team.

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful New Year!

It's been a pleasure designing for Kitty Bee Designs using both the Kitty Bee Original designs and those from our sponsors.

For today's challenge I've used an image from the set 3 Funny Elves by Mmedel Illustrations.

I colored using Copic markers.  The sentiment is from Jaded Blossom stamped onto a die cut from the JB Word Bubbles set.
