Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #265 Create a Tag

 
                               

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #265 is to create a tag. I made the tag and then created a holder from a see-through business envelope. (see 'Window Envelope Tag Tutorial' by My Porch Prints). A fun project and something a little different (for me).

Bugaboo Sketch Challenge

 Bugaboo Sketch Challenge #815


Is she not adorable this gal from Bugaboo Stamps, titled Kiz Sitter 3! I think she is just so cute. I followed the Bugaboo  sketch for challenge #815 and came up with this creation. I think it shows up as a bit bland but quite like the real thing.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #263 Recycled Element


















Judy is hosting today's challenge, Recycled Element

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the 'Recycled Element' theme.

This card is for a brother's birthday  I used two washers I found in the garage. I thought they would make a reasonable decoration on the card. I am pretty sure my brother will recognize them (know what they are). I darkened them with brown ink. The ribbon is from my stash and the three tickets are from another project. I also printed off a clock picture I found online, cut it out, reinforced the back, and adhered it to the card. The decorative circle between the two washers is from a Tim Holtz die set.

Paper: Stampin Up  Early Expresso,  light tan paper,
Dies: Sizzix Thinlets 661184
Sentiment: Stampin UP
Ribbon: Recollections 'Trim'

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #261 Lot's of Layers


 
   Welcome to Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #261 Lot's of Layers

                 Jackie is hosting today's challenge!

As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece, some home decor, as long as it meets the theme. I choose to make a fun fold card for a stepdaughter, no stamping or ink required!

Hope this post finds everyone safe and happy. It has been a long haul and I cannot wait for things to return to normal (if there is such a thing). I totally dislike the mask yet realize it's importance, miss the visiting of friends and family from out of town, hate feeling like a criminal going down the wrong aisle, I just miss the normal!! Now having said all that I am happy, I am in good health and certainly wish to remain that way LOL.

Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #260 Create Your Own Background


Jackie is hosting today's challenge, Create Your Own Background


As usual, anything you care to enter is fine, a card, scrap layout, mixed media piece or home decor, as long as it meets the theme.


Crafty Cardmakers Challenge #260 Create Your Own Background, what a fun challenge this is. I created my background by filling a dish with foam shaving cream, adding a few ink drops of different green shades to it, and stirred it very gently. I placed my sheet of white cardstock onto the foam and this was the end result.
