Sketch N Scrap Card Sketch #106

Hey crafty friends!!
Happy Wednesday!!
Today starts a new card sketch challenge over at 
Here is a look at the second card sketch for September courtesy of Lisa:


Here is my take on the sketch:


Yep! Halloween on the brain! lol! I went looking through my paper pads and found one that had some fun bright colors as well as a silver glittery paper scrap. I layered the patterned papers on my card and then stamped my greeting onto some white cardstock, layered it on top of some black cardstock and then popped it up with foam tape. I finished it off with some silver stars. So super easy but I think it turned out great!! It's pretty flat too so gotta love that when it comes time to mail it :) 

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by and take a look at my latest creation!
I appreciate it so much!
Don't forget to swing by the Sketch N Scrap blog and take a look at what my talented DT sisters made with the sketch. I hope you decide to play along, I would love to see what you create!

The challenges that I am sharing my card in are:


and

Here is a look at the card that I created for the above challenges:


I cut out some patterned paper with leaves and some Kraft cardstock using the Card Mat Dies from Jaded Blossom. I cut off a portion of the patterned paper and layered it on top of my Kraft cardstock, matching up the stitching. I embossed my greeting with white embossing powder onto some orange cardstock, layered it onto some teal cardstock and added it to my card. I wrapped some twine around, tied a bow and then added everything to my card base. I stamped out that sweet little girl from Stamp Anniething and colored her in with my Copic markers. Once I had her colored in, I cut her out using my Scan N Cut 2 and popped her up onto the front of my card with more foam tape. I finished off my card with a few sequins. I think she is absolutely adorable!!

A Harvest of Blessings

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are having a marvelous Monday!
It's raining off and on in my area so that makes it a perfect day to try and get some crafting done right? I was able to pull out some supplies and make a quick little card for a few challenges.


I started out with a cream colored A2 card base. I cut out a scalloped layer from some blue cardstock using a die from MFT (all supplies are listed at the bottom of this post). I used another die from MFT for my cream top panel and layered a fence and some rolling hills on top. I stamped out my images and colored them in with my Copics and paper pieced his little sweater. I stamped my greeting at the top with some brown ink and placed my mouse and apples on the panel. I wrapped some twine around the bottom and adhered my image panel on top of the blue scalloped piece.

The challenges I will be entering this card into are:

Envelope Punch Board Tote

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a marvelous day!
I have been struggling a bit lately with my crafty mojo. I can't seem to find it. :(
I've looked everywhere! lol! Since I can't seem to get the creative juices flowing lately, I decided to try a tutorial from Split Coast Stampers that I have had bookmarked for awhile, called
 Envelope Punch Board Tote. ( <<< clickable link for tutorial). They are super cute and could be made for any type of occasion. I thought they would be perfect for a little Halloween treat.

 Here are the ones that I made:


Each tote takes one piece of  6x6 paper. I thought that was pretty cool! I have a ton of that lol! I decided to take 2 sheets of patterned paper from a Doodlebug 6x6 pad to make mine. After I had the totes made, I stamped out some images from an older Stampin' Up set (not sure if it is still available), punched them out with a circle punch and layered them onto a black die cut circle. I added some google eyes for a bit of whimsy and popped up the image piece with some foam tape onto the front of my bag. I closed my bags with a little bit of tulle tied in a simple knot. 


I decided to fold the side flaps down on mine and secured them with a little bit of wet glue and added a sparkly enamel dot for a little decoration.


Inside I was able to fit two fun size candies in each one. 

Have you ever lost your crafty mojo? What or where do you go for crafty inspiration? 

I will be entering my project into the anything goes challenge over at

Thanks so much for stopping by today and taking a look at my latest creation!
I hope you have a great crafty day!

Hey Jack!

Hey crafty friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Monday!
Today I wanted to stop in and share a fun little 3D project that I made to add to my Halloween home decor this year. 


I decided to cut out this sweet little Jack O Lantern from the Haunted Forest set by SVGcuts.com .


I pulled papers from various stacks and my stash of loose cardstock and started building the pumpkin as well as decorating. I added some blingy ribbon to the hat brim for a little sparkle and added a big brad to the center of my flower. It still looked like it needed a little something though so I took some thin wire, curled it, added some bats and adhered it to the inside if my hat with some hot glue. 


 I think he turned out so incredibly cute! I added a little electronic tea light that runs on a timer to the inside and already have him displayed in my living room hehe! Too early?? 


I will be entering this project into the following challenges:

Jump For Joy

Hi crafty friends!
Today I would like to share a project that I created using some fabulous dies and stamps that can be found in the Dies R Us Store

I'm really looking forward to Fall so I felt the need to make a Fall themed card. 
Haha!


 I created my card base from some Kraft cardstock and layered some fun patterned paper on top. I then started building my scene onto a piece of white cardstock. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Hillside Borders for my grassy hill and some distress inks to make the sky a light blue. I stamped out that sweet little fox and all those leaves from Lawn Fawn's Jump For Joy Stamp Set, colored them with my Copic markers and then used the Jump For Joy Dies to cut my images out. I think it turned out so super cute!!


Here is a quick peek (with links) at the products that I used on my project that can be found in the Dies R Us Store.

Boo!

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I love all things Halloween and couldn't wait to get a jump start on a little goody bag.


I cut this fun bag from my Cricut, assembled it and then started decorating. I used some fun polka dot paper from the Not Too Spooky 6x6 paper pad and added it to the front of my bag. I used the Scallop Circle Dies and a piece of pattered paper from the Not Too Spooky 6x6 paper pad and added that to the front with some foam tape. I stamped out that super cute Bride of Frankenstein image from the Spooktacular Stamp set, colored her with my copic markers, added a spider, used the Stitched Circle Dies to cut it out and added that on top of my scallop. I added a strip of star paper to the top of my bag and added a mini clothespin to help keep the bag closed. I finished my project off with a twine bow and a glittery Boo!

I do have a bit of sad news to share with you all today. Today is my last post as a design team member for Pink & Main. I have been on the team for 2 wonderful years but feel like I need to take a step down. I've struggled with this decision but feel at this point in time, it's the right one for me. All good things must come to an end right? A huge thank you to Michelle for having me the last two years! It has been an amazing experience and I wish Pink & Main and all of my DT Sisters much success!! Hugs!!

Thanks A Bushel

Hi crafty friends!
Today I am back to share a project that I created using some fabulous dies and stamps that can be found in the

I thought it would be fun to create a little Fall themed thank you gift box. I know it is still Summer, but I'm ready for Fall lol!

I started out by stamping and cutting out all my pieces.


I used the Lawn Fawn Scalloped Treat Box die and cut out two pieces from some wood grain looking paper  to make my box. I also used the Lawn Fawn Thanks A Bushel stamp set to stamp my images and then used the Lawn Fawn Thanks A Bushel Dies to cut them out. I assembled my box and colored my images and this is what the final product looks like:




I added my greeting using the Thanks A Bushel stamp set and tied it to my box with some baker's twine. I think it turned out so cute!

Hello crafty friends!!
I hope you are having a wonderful Wednesday!
 Today I am back with another project that showcases some of those awesome 


I am using the new box card die for my project today!! Yay!!


I thought it would be fun to pair up the box card and those cute little "flying" bees! I created my box card using the Box Card die and cut it out of some pink cardstock. I used some floral paper scraps for the top flaps and some fun checkerboard type paper for the bottom panels. The checkerboard paper came from the Spring Flings Paper Pad. I used the Don't Worry stamp set and stamped out those fun images and colored them in with my Copic Markers. After they were all colored in, I used the coordinating Don't Worry dies to cut them out. I placed them into my box card, using acetate for the bees. I tied a bow to the front flap of my card using some crochet thread and added my greeting to the front flap as well. I think it turned out super cute!!
