Fancy Folds #211 4 Crafty Chicks

Thanks again for coming to my blog, today, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge today is #211 Fancy Folds, so I tried something a wee bit different, not sure how much I like it, but here it is any way.  I folded the small piece on the front of my card and adhered my image onto it.  Hope this makes sense.  Then it didn't fold down right, so I added a clothes pin with a snowflake to clip it together.  Added a ribbon and brad.  I colored my image using Copic Markers. 
The stamp I used for the front of my card is from Wild Rose Studio called Snowman Hugs, and the inside stamps are from American Crafts-Clear Stamps.

4 Crafty Chicks #210 Real/Faux Sewing

Welcome back to my blog and welcome to the first week of September, wow summer sure has flown by fast.  I can't believe we are into the first week.
The challenge today at 4 Crafty Chicks is Real or Faux Sewing.  As I used to do so much sewing on fabric, it is also fun to sew on paper crafts.  Some like the faux sewing or stitching as some like to call it.  It is my turn to host the challenge, pop on over check out the design team creations and we are also having our Guest Designer Call, so lots of fun stuff going on over at 4 Crafty Chicks.
My cards, as I couldn't just pick one after making two of them, are pretty clean and simple this time around.  Some sewing around the edge, sentiment and some punched out leaves, I used the Bella Blvd-Thankful pattern paper and I also stamped a SU Medallion stamp and used clear embossing powder to enhance it on the solid card stock.  Thanks again for stopping and look forward to see your creations over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Till next time, happy crafting!

Spooky High Hopes Sneak Peek

Hello friends, Wow it is the first week of September, the time flies by.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by at One Crazy Stamper last month for our Inspiration month, and I hope you did get a chance to stop and see what the design team created for you.  Their talent is awesome.  So now onto September yes we are having a challenge once again, and we are releasing these wonderful stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  
 
The Challenge this month is Halloween/Christmas!
My first card this month is something I don't do very often so hope you can see what I tried to do.  I don't really do Halloween, but here is what I came up with.
I added trees and branches using the dies from Memory Box, and used Distress Ink from Ranger and my sponges.  I masked off a spot with Mask-it for my moon. I popped up my little hanging bat. High Hopes Rubber Stamp-Just Hanging Out. Of course I colored him using my copic markers.
Thanks again for stopping here.  I hope you get a chance this month to check out what One Crazy Stamper is sharing and play along, great prizes and always a fun New Release from High Hope Rubber Stamps.  Till next time, Happy Crafting!

Something Old, Something New

 Thanks for stopping to see what I am creating for our challenge this week at 4 Crafty Chicks, our Chick Lori's turn to host the challenge.  She has asked us to use "Something Old, Something New" on our projects.  I had so many ideas, but came up with this card.  Hope you like it, and take time to share your ideas/creations with the chicks.  They like hearing from  you too.  So pop on over to 4 Crafty Chicks.
My card first of all is new, but that isn't what I am getting at, haha!  My Old is the Stampin Up die I used for the image.  The new is my stamp from Heartfelt Creations.  I used another Spellbinder lattice on my card.  Used the Prima's Stationer's Desk Pattern Paper, added a ribbon/bow, some flowers, and popped my image up using 3D foam dots.  Inked the edges of the paper/image with distress ink - walnut.  Oh and the pin I just made is new too.  Colored the image using my copic markers.  I do hope you get into your craft room and create with us at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Till next time have a wonderful day!
