Be mine box card


I have a really cool box card to share with you today designed by Cheryl at Creative Kuts.



It even has it's own "envelope" the card part slips into this box cover, and when you lift the card out by it's ribbon the sides fall open.

It's a nerd thing!

I'm sharing a fun set of cards I made using the new It's a nerd thing set from Sunsational stamps
This card I found on the SIL store and I immediately thought of this set to go with it.
I put crystal effects on all of the glasses on the card fronts.  I used the negative cuts from the card to place over the bear, I thought he looked a little shocked so I tried to make it look like he's part of the circuit board.
This is what I put inside this card.

For the next card I found some paper with lines on it that looks like school paper.  I lined the main layer with a silver marker.  I like how the offset lined paper looks.


Here's a close up of the lizard, he's so cute. I put the tiger inside this card.


And for my favorite of this set! I used the rest of the pieces from the set on this card and put the snake on an action wobble.

Scribbles designs

I'm sharing 2 cards I made today using some images from Scribbles Designs. 
This first one was the freebie from this past Friday.
I stacked two so I'd have 4 envelopes.  I used a cute pencil background paper I had on my computer and added real buttons to the envelopes.

This was an idea I saw on facebook recently.  The designer used some splat type stamps to put the yellow in the light bulb, I used a cut file I have and just filled it with color and printed it inside the bulb.

I am adding this to the current challenge here

Treat bags

I have so much fun with paper, I think a little too much fun sometimes.  It's so easy to get lost for a day and ignore how bad my back hurts.  
Cheryl created these adorable treat bags and I just love them!



Besides, having an excuse other than "I just want candy" to buy candy is a bonus!



These are just so cute, I thought I loved the turtle, then I made the squirrel and then I made the frog...needless to say, I can't pick a favorite, can you?

Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons guest designer

Today I have the honor of being the guest designer at Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons.  They have some really adorable files, it was hard to pick what to make.  
I finally decided to use the owl lollipop holder and the birch tree trunks.

As you can see here, I inked the trees and used a gel pen on the owl's eyes and beak.
I created the snowy ground using a curve die I have in my stash.


For my next card, I made a shaker card using the sweet hearts box.  I didn't try to cut the hearts with the words on them, I am in need of a new blade so I knew it'd chew the paper up and not be usable.  So I just used the solid hearts and cut them in different colors and wrote the messages.


I used my Fuse tool to create the pocket and added some tiny hearts from my stash of nail art pieces.


I'm happy to have had this opportunity, if you'd like the files I used, you can click on the name of each one above, I linked them to the shop.
Here is a link to the blog so you can check out the regular posts and join the challenge!

Let it snow!




Scribbles Designs is our sponsor this month
The optional theme this month is add snow somehow.

I used the Let it Snowmen image.  The card base is one I got from the SIL store along with the snowflake swirls in the medallion.  
Aren't the papers this month super pretty?  I love them and the colors are great!


I used my gel pens to color the image for some added shine.  I kept the embellishments to just gems stones on the snowflake centers then each corner of the card.


I sure hope you will join us this month so you can get your snowflake paper and win some of these cute designs.


So head over and see what the Sleigh Bells have made for your inspiration and get to linking!  Be sure to stop back by on the 15th to see what else I made for this challenge, I'm a little partial to snowmen so I got a little carried away this month!

Add some sparkle




This is a tricky card to photograph.  I might have gone a little over board with the sparkle but, hey, you can never have too much glitter right?


I think he's just adorable!  I used my sil program to change the color of the Super image and created my background .
