Challenge Time!



Hello Disney and Crafty Friends!  Happy Easter!! Today we have a new challenge starting over at Scrapbook Blessings Club.  It is Anything Goes with the Design Team spotlighting a "Color Challenge". The colors to use are pink, green and white. Head on over here to see what the other Design Team members did.  I decided to make another Pop-Up Diorama card.  To see my original post, that includes the link for instructions, for this card head on over here.







Recipe:
  •  Sentiment by My Pink Stamper (set "Buggy Punnies")
  • Butterfly stamp by Close To My Heart (set "A Flitter" item A1108 -- retired)
  • Embossing Folder
  • Circle Punch
  • Liquid Glass by Close To My Heart
  • Ultra-fine glitter
  • Card stock from my stash
  • My butterflies have Liquid Glass and glitter on them  Unfortunately it does not show in the photo.
Once again, I left the inside blank (though I did emboss behind the open circle).  When making cards for my go-to card file, I like to leave the sentiment blank.  At this point I am unsure what occasion this card will be used for and who will be the recipient. Wondering what my "go-to" card file is?? It is where I keep cards that I make up ahead of time with no occasion or recipient in mind.  I like to keep these on hand for the unexpected need for a card.

I hope that you will join us over at Scrapbook Blessings Club for this month's challenge.  Head on over here to join in.  I can't wait to see what you create.

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

Let's Hop!

Hello Disney and Crafty Friends! Today is all about hopping.....a blog hop that is. As a Design Team member over at Scrapbook Blessings Club I thought that I would join in on a hop that they are part of.  The hop is "Create A Card Blog Hop".  I recently found a "new" favorite card to make. It is called a pop-up diorama.  I got my directions from Julie Davison on SplitCoast Stampers.  Head on over here to read all about how to create a pop-up diorama card.  It is much easier than it looks!

 This is the card that you saw over at Scrapbook Blessings Club and it was my first attempt.
 Inside

 This is my second card that I made using this technique. 

 Inside.....I left the message area blank.  I am not sure what I will put in this one.....maybe an image instead of a greeting.


This is my favorite!  It is the size of a gift enclosure card.  I just thought at a smaller size this card was extra fun!!  Plus out of an 8 1/2 by 11 piece of card stock you can make the above card and this one out of the one piece of card stock!

 Inside


Recipe:

  • Easter Wishes stamp set by Close To My Heart
  • Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge by Close To My Heart
  • Paper, stickers and ribbon from my stash
  • Stickles
  • Liquid Glass by Close To My Heart
  • Embossing Folders
  • Kaleidacolor Birthstone ink pad
  • Kaleidacolor Blue Breeze ink pad
  • Impress Pansy ink pad
  • Punches (circle and flower)
  • Chalk Ink
For these cards I really felt like I was "shopping" in my craft room!  I used a stamp set (Easter Wishes) and an embossing folder that I had never used before. SO fun!!  Also, I just love that the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge coordinates with the Easter Wishes stamp set.  I cut the eggs out on the Cricut and then stamped them.  I also used some ink pads that haven't been out in years! I used them on the eggs.

Thank you so much for stopping by and hopping along.  Should you get lost during the hop just head on over to the Scrapbook Blessings Club and the line up of blogs is listed.  Have a magical day!

Wordless Wednesday

My favorite time of the week has arrived. It is Wordless Wednesday hosted by Deb over at Focused On The Magic.  Be sure to head on over there and check out all of the great blogs that have linked up.

 The theme this week is:

Disney Royalty 



I recently returned from a wonderful trip to Disneyland!  It was magical! One of the highlights for me actually was in California Adventure.  I was walking by myself to the lockers and I felt someone come up behind me.  Well that someone was Pluto!  He put his arm on my shoulder and together we walked.  SO fun!!  Over at Disneyland I had much fun riding Big Thunder as many times as I possibly could.  I love that ride....The wildest ride in the wilderness!!  It was a great vacation and of course I can't wait to go back!!

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope that you have a magical day!!
