Pearly Sparkles ~ October Post ~ Halloween, Spooky or Cute

Hi Crafty Friends,

Welcome to October and my Pearly Sparkles monthly post.

Our theme is Halloween.  Your project can be spooky or cute, your choice (maybe a bit of both?)

I used one of The Rabbit Hole Designs stamps as the focal point of my card.

Isn't this a great stamp?  I love TRHD sentiments, they always bring a smile.  I decided to heat emboss the image and sentiment onto patterned paper.  I really like the effect.  I added a few die cuts from La-La Land Crafts and a button with twine.  This card just makes me smile.

I hope you'll join us this month.  Just follow the link above.

Die Cuttin Divas Challenge 439 ~ Tags

Hi Crafty Friends,

Our Die Cuttin Divas theme is TAGS.  Tags are so much fun to make and there are so many varieties to create.  Today I used Jaded Blossom's Wine Tag Die .

I also used Jaded Blossom's Balloon Dies and Mini Tag Dies 2.  The sentiment is from JB's  Wine O'Clock set.  I think this will look so cute on a bottle of wine.  The perfect gift for your wine-loving friends.

I hope you'll join us this week.  Just follow the link above.

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.
