Bunny Card

I have a fun project to share which was inspired by a few different challenges.  This sweet little bunny card was created using the Just A Note cartridge.  I created a pom pom with some Cotton Candy Trendy Twine and added it as the bunny's tail.  I also added a paper flower with a bling center which was finished off with a twine bow.
I used a Peachy Keen face stamp and some chalk for the bunny's face.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Mini Messages stamp set was added to a hand cut flag.

Trendy Twine Design Day

Today is my design day over at Trendy Twine and we are showcasing Bubblegum Taffy and Twisted Gumball this month, which are both on sale. For my project I created this money insert card using a manilla paper pocket and tag from Annie's Paper Boutique.  My project was embellished with Bubblegum Taffy with twine stitching on the bottom of my tag. I tucked in a doily behind some birthday themed card stock which was embellished with a strip of coordinating card stock punched with the Fiskars Apron Lace punch.  I stapled some ribbon on top of a folded scalloped circle and added a small twine bow.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Birthday Hugs stamp set was popped up on foam dots for added dimension.  A paper flower with a pearl center was used as an embellishment.  Some scattered sequins were the perfect finishing touch to my project.  Pop over to Trendy Twine for more pictures since I only have a sneak peek for you.
Hope you will come join our monthly challenge.  Also, remember to check out the store for so many crafty supplies including a few of the ones I used on my project.

Easter Treats

Happy Friday!  I am back over on the Trendy Twine blog today with some fun treats to share.  My daughter and husband both love chocolate covered raisins so I thought these would be the perfect Easter treats for them.
The cute little candy sacks and tags are both from Annie's Paper Boutique.  Lesley has so many different types of treat packaging in her store.  These flat bottom sacks were the perfect size to fill with the chocolate covered raisins.
The tags are just adorable, there are different Easter tags available here.  Since the tags are printable, it makes it easy to create a project.  I used the 2 inch EK Success scalloped circle punch for my tag and the 2 1/4 inch EK Success scalloped circle punch for the solid layer under my tag.
My yummy treats were finished off with Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine.  Don't forget to come link up your project for this month's challenge.

Craftin Desert Diva's Design Day

Hello everyone, it's my design day over at Craftin Desert Diva's and I have a fun project to share with you today.  I am loving the stamps from the new release, they are so fun and versatile!  For my project, I created a banner card, I used the Teenage Dream stamp set for the #Love sentiment.
The top layer of my card is pop dotted on foam so the rows of sequins fit perfectly between the two layers.  A small bakers twine bow was added as a finishing touch.
Remember to check out the store for all of the newly released stamp sets.  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Trendy Twine Group Design Day

Today is our group design day over at Trendy Twine and we have some fun projects to share following this month's challenge.  I created a gable box for some Easter treats featuring Bubblegum Taffy and Twisted Gumball Trendy Twine which are both on sale this month.  I faux stitched around the card stock using my white gel pen.
The kraft gable box, the Bunny Peep tag and the ribbon bow are all from Annie's Paper Boutique.  Lesley has some awesome crafty supplies in her store which make putting a project together a cinch.  A couple of coordinating flowers finished off my gable box.  I created a center for my large flower using some Twisted Gumball twine.
Come join our new Trendy Twine challenge going on this month.  Also, check out the store for some of the fun products I used on my project today.

Craftin Desert Divas "Anything Goes" Linky Party

Welcome to another Craftin Desert Divas Linky Party.  The theme is anything goes so I created a Disney layout.  I used the Sweet Treats cartridge for the "fun" cut and the Mickey and Friends cartridge for the Mickey Mouse, tag and "Disney" cuts.
My intent for this layout was to have plenty of large photo mats to display 4x6 pictures.
The Disney characters were individually cut from a 12x12 page and matted on black card stock.
A tag was added for some journaling.  The swirls were punched from a small punch in my stash and the tag was finished off with some ribbon and a Berry Trendy Twine bow.
Mickey Mouse was popped up on foam for added dimension.  He was the perfect finishing touch to my layout.
We have some awesome sponsors for this linky party: Fleurette Bloom, Love Bug Creations and Fresh Squeezed Stamps.  Stop by Craftin Desert Divas to check out all of the inspiring projects from the DT and join in on the linky party.

Thank You Gift Card Holder

This thank you gift card holder was created from the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge.  The flower was also cut from the same cartridge.  I enclosed a Starbucks gift card and added a clothespin to keep the gift card holder closed.  A small twine bow in Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine was added to the clothespin.  A sentiment from the Scrappy Moms Just Sayin stamp set was adhered to the flap on a hand cut flag.
I added a face stamp to the flower from the Peachy Keen Sweet on You stamp set.  A bit of chalk to the cheeks and some ink added extra dimension to the flower.
