Let's Dance Card

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge has a "inspired by music" theme this week.  It was the perfect excuse to go through my binders of cling stamps and see what I could find.  :)  I found an image of a vintage couple dancing by Time To Stamp (maybe).  Most of my cling images in binders are unlabeled and I'm relying on my memory.  I love images which have a sense of the "Roaring 20s which this one definitely does.  I used my Silhouette Cameo for the die cut sentiement (#315202).  I also used a music background embossing folder by Sizzix.  The flowers at top and bottom are washi tape from my many drawers of washi tape (I have a washi addiction....wink.)  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty....and turn that music up and dance!  ;)

Masking Challenge Card

The new Jane’s Doodles Challenge is “masking.”  I had not tried masking in a long time...so long I almost needed a refresher course.  I wanted to use the “Free As A Bird” set.  I decided I could put the clouds behind the bird plus clouds behind clouds by masking.  I had the perfect cloud tape (by KI Memories) in my stash (or is it hoard....wink).  Fun card which made me dust some masking cobwebs from my brain.  Thanks for checking out my card and remember to stay crafty....and careful if you walk under any birds today.  ;)

Snarky Piñata Card

E is for Evil is the new challenge at Sisterhood of the Snarky Stampers.  I looked  through my sticker book by Tim Holtz looking for inspiration when I spotted one.  It reminded me of a stamp set I had by Pretty Pink Posh (Piñata Party) which I thought would be perfect.  Plus the sentiment is one I can definitely relate to on certain days (but haven’t acted upon....yet....wink).  Card making might be the reason why I haven’t (snicker).  I also used the sketch at CASE This Sketch as my card layout.  Thanks for dropping in and remember to stay crafty.....grab a stick and go wild....only on a piñata though.  No one looks good in prison orange.  ;)

Latte Christmas Card

There is a fun challenge going on at Jingle Belles calling for cards which are predominantly red.  Since red is my favorite color I had to play along.  The large patterned red panel is from one of my Christmas 12x12 pads (along with the the plaid.). I created the black cardstock die cut cups using the Silhouette Cameo.  I stamped four sentiments with red ink (and mounted with foam tape).  Found a red plastic “merry” embellishment by Pinkfresh Studio for the finishing touch.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....get to making those Christmas cards (you will be glad you did in December....just saying from experience).  ;)

Tea Shaker Card

I love a challenge which makes me put on the old thinking cap....wink.  This is definitely the case with the current Mod Squad Challenge!  You have to have a coffee, tea or cocoa themed SHAKER card plus use a sticker.  I saw this tea sentiment in my Silhouette designs and liked it.  I do not have a lot of stickers (except for a few alphabet and Tim Holtz snarky sentiments) but found this banner one.  It is an “oldie” by Little Yellow Bicycle.  I stamped a teapot and teacup which were circle punched.  The shaker part of the card was created by die cutting a square once I had the layout of the card established.  I used red seed beads for the filler in it.  Fun challenge!!  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....put the kettle on for a cup of hot tea in your crafty space.

Coffee Shaker Card

Sharing a card I did for two fun challenges on a cold cloudy day in my neck of the woods.  I used the new sketch at Freshly Made Sketches for the placement of the elements on my card.  Mod Squad Challenges wants a "coffee, tea or cocoa" shaker card plus a sticker.  I used a cup image by Essentials by Ellen and heat embossed it with white embossing powder.  The sticker sentiment is by Tim Holtz.  I used sequins by Neat & Tangled (plus added a few black and white sequins to the coffee mix of sequins).    Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....and shake, shake shake those shaker cards!  I'm linking this card up at:

I Love You Card

I'm always up for a challenge and discovered a new one.  Jane's Doodles has started a bi-weekly challenge.  I'm entering this into the third one where the theme is "Love."  I used a cute stamp set called Seamus by Jane's Doodles.  I sponged a cloud background with an old Stampin'Up cloud stencil and Distress Oxide ink.  The die cut tree (#11648) and fence (#2678) were done with the Silhouette Cameo.
Fun card to make!  Thanks for dropping by and remember to stay crafty....and if you see Seamus the sheep...give him a hug for me.  :)

Anniversary Gift Box

I thought it would be fun to put a gift card to our favorite restaurant in this gift box for our upcoming anniversary.  :)  I know my hubby enjoys eating and I don't much like to cook so win win.  :)  I'm entering it in the Art Impressions "Give It Away" Challenge.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty....if it doesn't stop raining here soon, I'm going to be forced to put "floaties" on when I take the dog out.  Wink.

Valentine Candy Gift Bag

The current Art Impressions challenge is called "Give It Away."  I did a small gift bag and filled it with candy for a friend's granddaughter.  I used the new Art Impressions set called "Sending Love Cubbies."  I used my Silhouette Cameo to make the gift bag (#225306).  Fast, easy and fun project.  :)
Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....when you make candy gift bags you get to sample the goods.  Wink.  :)

Meowy Catmas Card

Sharing a fun Christmas card I did for some challenges.  I am determined to make Christmas cards all through the year and not be caught short like I was in 2019.  :)  How do you like the fireplace I created?  I had the best fireplace stamp with additional roaring fire but could not find it.  It was not stored where it should have been and has gotten "lost."  After spending an hour trying to find it, I gave up and decided to make a fireplace.  I remembered I had a brick stencil (and luckily could fine it....wink).  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....also remember to put your stamps back where they go.  ;)  


I Love You Card

What do you do on a dark and rainy winter's day?  I head to my craft room and "play" with rubber stamps, inks and my Silhouette Cameo.  I'll bet you thought I was going to say nap.  ;)  I was intrigued by the colors at the Color Throwdown Challenge this week.  They are navy, light blue, pink and white.  I pulled out stamps by Unity Stamp Company from my stash (or is it hoard).  I cut a heart die cut panel from pink cardstock with the Silhouette Cameo (Hearts Background #283761).  I used a Gina K Designs "In The Navy" ink pad and also a light blue and pink Spectrum Noir marker.  Light blue sequins for the finishing touch on a fast and easy card.  Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....use different color combos for added fun.  I'm linking these hearts up at:
