This month I decided to make two cards using the same die sets. I just love this bunny and can think of so many ways to use it.
The first one is an easel card with our little friend happily sitting among the eggs.
For my second card, I have filled the basket with carrots, part of the Bunny Set.
The Spring Basket can be filled with just about anything you can think of - so have some fun and
For today's challenge Elizabeth Craft Designs are giving away a $20 Gift Card to use on
our website to 3 winners.
Just popping in with a quick Valentine's Day card that I can now share since I already gave Mac his card. It is rather clean and simple because, after all, he's a guy. It's a 5" X 5.5 " gate fold card that is held closed with a belly band.
I used lots of Elizabeth Craft Designs dies, stamps and paper for this one. Links are below if you want to shop.
I wanted to play along this month with the Paper Pros Challenge, we are an informal group of crafters who like to share our creations in the form of a monthly challenge. With Valentine's Day coming tomorrow, Love is the perfect theme.
There is a new release from Karen Burniston and her Coffee Cup Pop-Up is so much fun. It is designed to hold a gift card if you chose - but it can also be used without the gift card and that's what I have done.
For video instructions you can click here. I decided to double my fun for this card by adding two cups. Just follow Karen's instructions X 2.
My cards is a 5" X 7" with a top fold. It folds flat for mailing in an A7 envelope.
I cut out my cups and decorated them with the dies in the set - the circles on the front, the cute little stir sticks with the heart (how perfect was that?). I added the hearts that came from the sticks to decorate the front of the cups and then added the words using Word Sets 2 & 3. I got the "me" from merry Christmas. Add a few coffee beans and a label from the Katherine Label Pop-Up and it's good to go.
Today is the start of a new challenge at A Vintage Journey. I hope you will stop by to see all the great things the Creative Guides have made to inspire you. You can see it all by CLICKING HERE. Our challenge this time was "Melt It".
I made a simple yet colorful tag and used embossing powder in two different ways as my "Melt It" object.
This a rather simple tag with lots of color.
I began with a manila tag, then added Distress Oxide Inks, Candied Apple, Spiced Marmalade,
and Wild Honey.
I stamped on the phrase and little butterfly from the Elizabeth Craft Designs Plant, Grow & Bloom stamp set using VersaMark Ink and then some Bravo Burgundy embossing powder from Stampin' Up.
I cut a Dotted Scalloped Circle, cut in half. It was embossed with Karen Burniston's Butterfly embossing folder(discontinued) and then colored with Wild Honey Distress Oxide and then edged with Frayed Burlap Distress Oxide.
For the butterfly, I used the Elizabeth Craft Designs Butterfly 1 die set (discontinued). I colored the solid one with Broken China Distress Oxide Ink and the lacey butterfly was covered with VersaMark Ink and then covered with gold embossing powder - heated to melt the powder.
The final step was to layer everything and tie a ribbon on the top.
I hope you will join the fun and enter this month's fun challenge. You can do that by
