SSS Wednesday Challenge - Sparkle and Shine

Happy Thursday and  thanks so much for stopping by! 

Today I am joining the wonderful SSS Wednesday Challenge DT! The challenge is Sparkle and Shine!

Here is my card...

I finally bought a Fuse Tool and let me tell you, I love it!! I wasn't patient at first with it (I didn't wait the 15 minutes to heat, lol) but after I got the hang of it, I was rolling! I cut the ice cream part out of a page protector and sealed part of it up, filled it up with some TCP Relish Mix and sealed the rest to keep the sequins from falling out (you do have to work rather quickly as the tool can burn the plastic VERY EASILY and QUICKLY). 

I added my sentiment using PS- Bold Buzzwords on some acetate with StazOn and finished the card by adding some pattern paper, Glossy Accent to the cherry, foam adhesive to the back of my cone and a few more TCP Relish Mix to my card.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a fabulous day!

SSS Wednesday Challenge- Get In Shape

Hi crafty friends, just wanted to stop by and share a quick post of a project that I made for SSS Wednesday Challenge.  This week they are featuring Lawn Fawn products and asked for no rectangle or square cards.

So, with that being said here is a little 3D bag I made for this week challenge...

I cut my bag using the Lawn Fawn Goodie Bag die. I then stamped a cute background (to the front and back of my bag) using the SSS Alphabet Background stamp with some SSS Goldenlocks ink. I cut a tag out of vellum using the Lawn Fawn Tag You're It die and stamped it with a coordinating stamp set Winter Gifts.

Finally, I just stamped my sentiment on my tag using A Good Apple from Lawn Fawn and tied a big bow to close my Goodie Bag.

Hope you enjoyed today's little project, Thanks so much for stopping by!

TCP FlairTastic Friday: Wearable

Hi and welcome to another TCP FlairTastic Friday! Today's TCP flair feature is about wearing your flair!

Here is my project...

I decided to jazz up a few headbands that I bought for my daughter.  The TCP flair couldn't have been any more PERFECT!  The colors and designs went so well and all I did was pick my flair and hot glued them right to the center of my flower. So fast and easy!

Christmas in July: Tags

Happy Thursday friends!

I shared a Christmas card with you last week and today I am sharing some Christmas tags! It's never too early to think about Christmas, at least for me, the sooner I get things done the better as my little one's birthday falls 13 days before Christmas!!

I used the CTMH Artiste Cartridge to cut my tags (pg. 69) and bows (pg. 55).  I added some TCP Green Patterned Pop Flair and TCP Red Patterned Pop Flair to the center of my bows and stamped a small sentiment using the CTMH Countdown stamp set with StazOn. To finished my card I added some ribbon and TCP Jolly Holiday Relish Mix.  

These were so fun and super easy to make (especially the bow, it came together super fast)! Thanks so much for stopping by!

FlairTastic Friday

Happy Friday and welcome to another TCP FlairTastic Friday! This Friday we are showcasing TCP Flair on greeting cards!

Here is my take on my card...

I started by stamping out a few arrow images from one of the stamp sets that comes with the CTMH Cricut Artiste Collection with some Honey, Sunset, and Pacifica Ink. I then layered a piece of vellum on top and stamped the "hello" speech bubble (same stamp set) with some Black StazOn.

I finished the card simply by adding a TCP Orange Patterned Flair, twine and TCP Something Shiny Sequins.

Please stop by TCP blog to view the other amazing projects from the design team! As always have a FABULOUS weekend!

Christmas in July

Happy Tuesday, thank you so much for stopping by!!

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made using the CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge and a coordinating stamp set.

This cartridge collection is fabulous and if you haven't seen the cuts this cartridge has, click here to take a look!

I used the cartridge to cut a frame (pg. 62) and used the Perfect Fit- Frames Flair stamp set to stamp my image on the frame with some Cranberry Ink. I then cut the tree (pg. 31) and stamped my image with the coordinating stamp set that comes with the CTMH Art Philosophy Cartridge bundle with some Pear Ink.

This cartridge has some fun borders that you can cut out, I took the border on page 63 and cut it out using some fun CTMH Silver Glitter cardstock. Using the same stamp set as my tree, I stamped my sentiment on some vellum with some StazOn. I finished my card by adding some foam adhesive to my images and some TCP Winter Sequins Mix.

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a wonderful day!

Father's Day gift

Happy Monday!

I forgot to share this post, so it's a super late Father's Day post! I made this for my husband and I loved it so much that I had to share it with you!

For my card, I used the SSS Medium Dots Stencil with some Wendy Vecchi embossing paste in which I added some SSS Inks (Maliblue, Doll Pink, Goldenlocks) to match the colors of the paper that I used for my candy tin.

I used the MME Up and Away Paper Pack to wrap my nuggets and my tin. I also used the CTMH Artiste Cartridge to cut my rosette and used the Perfect Fit-Dad Holiday stamp set from CTMH for my sentiment.

That is all and thanks for stopping by! Have a super Fabulous day!

FlairTastic Friday

Hi and welcome to another FlairTastic Friday! I really hope you enjoyed last Friday's projects, but in case you missed it click here to take a look!

Today we are showcasing flair as a "display".

I have a metal frame that I purchased from Joann's and I turned it into a mini calendar (hopefully this will help remind me of things that I need to do). I love it, especially because it sits right on top of my work station where I can SEE!

I simply took the Simple Numbered flair from TCP shop and turned them into magnets (magnets are coming soon to the shop).  I really love this calendar and you can totally customize you number flair with color or style, the possibilities are endless!

That is all I have for you today, thank  you so much for stopping by!

Wedding card

Happy Thursday!

Today, I am sharing a wedding card that I made for TCP Blog using the CTMH Cricut Artiste Cartridge!

When this cartridge came out I fell in love with it. It has so many great cuts, which include tons of 3D items, boxes, labels, cards with envelopes, phrases and much more (check out the handbook here).  I cut the frame (pg. 60) and the phrase (pg. 61) from the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.

I cut both images twice, once out of black and once out of a light grey cardstock to help add a little shadow. I also cut a few stripes of pattern paper to add to the left side of the card and a stripe of CTMH Cotton Candy cardstock to help add some color.

I finished my card by adding a heart flair from TCP Watercolor Hearts and some TCP Something Shiny sequins.

That is my card for today, thank you so much for stopping by! Don't forget to stop by the shop to take a look and pick up some goodies!
