My mother gave me a thin piece of wood and said you can use it for crafting. It was from some wood scraps she had. The other day I pulled the piece of wood out. Sometimes it is fun to just create for no rhyme or reason. Here is what I made.
I decided to enter my creation in a few challenges.
Way back when I remember making plenty of snow angels. It seemed like when I was a kid we got a lot more snow then we do now a days. I always tired to slip out the angel without messing it up to much. Kinda hard though when your wearing snow boots, and a bulky coat. I would manage a decent one from time to time. Those memories gave me the inspiration to create this card.
I placed a Action Wobble under my snow angel thanks to my swap buddy Kim who sent them to me.
Cricut cart used: Winter Frolic
Pattern paper used: Bo Bunny Powder Mountain Collection
Millie made 2 beautiful Christmas cards. I just had to put them on the blog. I believe she used Stampin Up products to make these cards. I know you can't tell by the picture but there is glitter on the large pine tree. Gorgeous cards Millie!
A little while ago I placed a order with My Favorite Things. I wanted to see what their paper was like. Which I have to say it is wonderful. Nice and thick. Great for card bases and to even add layers. I absolutely love their paper. Next I got a some dies. I have wanted the dies that make the piercing around the edges. So I got the square dies with the piercings around them. They work great. I walked up to Millie's place and showed her some of the squares I made with the dies and gave her a few sheets of paper. When I handed her the paper she started working out a card in her head. Next thing I know she came down to my house with a card she made using the papers and a die cut I gave her awhile back. It is such a sweet card I had to post it. Thanks Millie! Love the card!!
I decided to give the Silhouette Challenge a go. This challenge is using a print n cut design on your project.
Millie gave me a MS butterfly border punch for our monthly card swap. When I found the print n cut design "house of 3 butterfly" design id #9600 with a butterfly on it I just had to do it. I used the border punch underneath the design across the middle. It is such a cute punch. Thanks Millie!
Yesterday I pulled the cricut out and made a few cuts for this little hoot owl card. I used the sentimentals cricut cart for the cuts. I think I only used this cart once before. After using it for this card I realized there are some cute images on this cart I haven't even used yet.
Owl and the little stamp cut came from sentimentals cricut cart.
Special delivery sentiment is a Close to My Heart stamp.
Roses were made using the Sizzix Flowers, 3-D Bigz die.
4mm rose buds came from Wild orchid crafts.
Leaves with the roses came from a ek tools flowers and leaves large punch.
Pattern paper is from Prima 6x6 paper pad Lyric.
Stick pin I made with beads from my stash.
Paper layer the owl sits on was cut with Spellbinders Celebrations pierced rectangles die.
Edges of the image and papers were inked with Tim Holtz vintage photo distress ink.
I also added some stickles to the flowers and leaves but it is hard to see in this photo.
I didn't have a lot of beach cuts on the carts I have but I did find a sandcastle on the Doodlecharms cart.
I had some neat nautical paper from Websters. I just loved that whale in the ocean so I let the paper work for me. Of course I had to add some glitter to the sand castle. Add glitter whenever or however you can....LOL!
Sorry I am a little late getting the last of the March swap cards posted. I have been working on a couple SpongeBob & Patrick die cuts for the school. Ok so now onto the cards. This is Millie's cards.
This sweet ladybug card has a wonderful layered look. I like all the layers and the embossing is great. Sweet card Millie!
Here is what Millie did with the heart die that Kim gave her in the Feb. card swap. Beautiful card Millie. I love the colors.
Now on to the goodies Millie sent me.
As you can see Millie went with the ladybug theme this month. The little ladybug tin is filled with mini candies. Yum! A ladybug tin cup for storing all those craft supplies. Some ladybug socks to warm the feet.
A ladybug card with pretty flower clips. A ladybug paperclip. A note pad with sparkles. A ladybug stamp.
Thanks Millie for a great batch of cards and goodies this month.
Time to start the March card swap. Finally it is March and the snow is melting a bit. It is still ice underneath but it is coming along. The birds are chirping. Spring is on its way. Yipee!!
Now onto the March swap cards. This batch is mine. I will post Kim's next week.
The Spellbinder die cut Kim sent me last month is on the front of this tea cup. I wanted to do something different then a card using the die cut. This is what I came up with.
I bought the pattern for the tea cup box at the Silhouette store.
Tea cup box is by Lori Whitlock, design id #53794.
Heart die cut is Spellbinders swirled heart.
Patterned paper is by MME Honey.
I put this tag inside the tea cup box along with a few bags of Red Rose tea. What's a tea cup without some tea right? The sentiment stamped on the tag is the one Kim sent last month with the heart die cut. I stamped it on the bottom part of the tag. Added some bling I got at Michaels in their dollar bin. I also used the MME Honey pattern paper.
This little tag I made is just like the one I put in the tea cup except I added some different elements. First off I want to say I learned how to make this tag and bow watching a you tube video by Live Love Scrap. There may be other video's out there showing how to do the same thing but Live Love Scrap is the one I watched to make this.
I used Webster's pages pattern paper.
Stampin Up envelope punch board
Freckled Fawn paper clip
The ticket is from Making Memories
The Hello stamp is from Bo Bunny
The bling in the center of the bow is from Queen & Co. Twinkle goose bump.
Of course I had to tie everything together by making a card with a tea pot on it.
The teapot cutting pattern is from Kadoodle bug designs.
Teapot art work is by Melissa Deuss.
Embossing background is Sizzix Hero Arts textured impressions Dot Swirl
(Love this folder)
Sentiment was just printed off the computer not a stamp.
Flowers on the teapot are made using a small EK flower punch.
Small pearl flower centers are from The Paper Studio.
Now on to the goodies I sent them.
I put this cut little teacup stamp inside the tea cup with the tea and tag.
The sun is shining here today. I wish you all a great day.
