Crafty Card Gallery: Always and Forever

Hi everyone! I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day. The hubby and I went to Bluegrass Underground for a concert in Cumberland Caverns. Yep, music in a cave. The acoustics are incredible and the temperature inside is 56 degrees year round which I still think it is cold but yesterday the temps where 32 degrees and it actually felt warm once we got inside the cave. That was my Valentine’s Day gift along with a trip to Sonic afterwards for a Butterfingers Blast…yum! 
Anyway this month’s theme over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog is Valentine’s Day and I want to share the card I created. For more info and photos you can find my blog post HERE.

 Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Circus Love

Hi everyone! I found these scalloped cards I cut out from the Sizzix Scallop Card diecut several years ago along with a 4 1/2″x6 1/2″ pad of The Great Circus Company from Paper Studio. The set of Graphic 45 Cling Le Cirque 3 rubber stamps I had purchased at a great price at Tuesday Morning (2.99). Which of course I couldn’t pass up. 😉 I couldn’t decide on if I wanted to do Valentine’s Day theme cards or just wanted to keep them generic and finally wound up doing generic theme. So far this is what I came up with…I have a couple of more to do. 🙂

I stamped and used pastel chalks to color the images and then set the chalk with hairspray. Also I printed the sentiments from the computer and I inked all the edges with brown chalk ink.

I added sequins for a little bit of fun bling to the cards. Plus it is flat and should mail easily. 
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.

Key to my Heart

Hi everyone! I here to share a quick rolodex I created using my Sizzix Card, Telephone and Address diecut to cut a rolodex card from one of the sheets of 6″x6″ Mad Tea Party papers from the Tea Time Nesting Components Mixed Media Kits. I used scraps of patterned red cardstock to hand cut and punch hearts. I inked around the edges of the hearts and along with two strips of patterned cardstock I adhered all to the rolodex front. I printed the “daisy girl”  and then fussy cut her out. I adhered her to the corner of the card and added Stickles and a mini flower gem to the daisy.

I used the key stamp from the Paper Wings Productions Vintage Elements stamp set  and stamped on textured cream colored cardstock, fussy cut, inked over with chalk ink to give the key an old and worn look. I printed the sentiment from the computer, cut out and inked also with chalk ink. I adhered to the card along with a sequin, dew drop and red twine to the smallest heart to finish off this rolodex card.

I am submitting this project for the following challenges: Paper Wings Productions and Word Art Wednesday #169If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Sending Love Your Way

Hi everyone! I want to share a Valentine’s Day card I created for a challenge over at Canvas Corps blog. I started with a 5×7 folded kraft card as my base. I used a scrap of Black and Ivory Toile cardstock, inked the edges with chalk ink and then centered and adhered on the base. Next I added a black doily, strip of Red and Ivory Ribbon Stripe Cardstock and  a small strip of the hearts from the Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock to the card front. In the bottom corner I adhered the Happy Valentine’s Day sentiment from the same sheet of Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock.

I cut down a Kraft Coin Envelope (4 3 1/8×5 1/2) and punched a heart from the Red and White Mini Dot Reverse Cardstock which I adhered to the envelope along with a sequins and a dew drop. Next I splattered a Canvas Artist Trading Card with Cross My Heart Glimmer Mist and Bronze Glimmer Mist. Once the ATC dried I adhered it inside the envelope and added thread, dew drops and a sentiment from the Sending Love Words on Ivory Cardstock. There you have it a very simple card. I plan on giving this to my parents as part of their Valentine’s Day present. If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!

You Make my Heart Flutter

Hi! I hope everyone had an awesome Valentine’s Day. Mine was spent in a very cold house with no electricity because of a snow storm that came through the day before. I have determined that I would have never made it as a pioneer because I don’t do roughing it very well. I was so happy that it finally came back on Saturday…three days is way too long!!! The hubby and I wound up going out to eat on Saturday and to see Steep Canyon Rangers perform for our Valentine’s Day presents to each other.
Well, this is the card I created for the February Valentine’s Day challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog.  The card is made out of a 3.5″x6.75″ mini paperbag. I folded the top half of the bag underneath the bottom “flap” and then I cut slightly smaller than the bag scrapbook paper to cover all surfaces.
Next I use the Sizzix Bigz Beautiful Butterflies and the Hearts and Brackets dies to cut out two butterflies and a small hearts. Also I used two dress pins for the butterflies antenna. 

You can add candy, gift card or some other fun treat to the little bag card.

The sentiment I used the computer to print it off.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!


Sweet Treat Bags

Hi everyone! I’m back to share a really quick post on the treat bags I created for the swap I was in. They where super easy and quick to put together. I used scraps of cardstock, scrapbook paper, punches, piece of a paper doily, baggy or glassine bag and a Sizzix Rosette diecut and tada!!! All you have to do is add some candy!!! 🙂

I had received this little cupid image in a swap I was in several years ago. Its the perfect addiction to the top of the rosette. 

Thanks for stopping by, I hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

P.S. Be sure to stop back by Wednesday to see the altered matchbox I decorated. 🙂
