Celebrate Graduation

 Hi Everyone,

I hope you all are doing well today. This month is when we celebrate those who have graduated from High School, or Colleges. So at International Art & Soul our theme is - Graduation. 

I choose this theme cause I know lots of people will be creating graduation projects for family, friends and others who will be graduating this month and next month.  Congratulations to all of those who worked hard and earned their diploma's and Degrees. Wishing you all much success.   

For my projects I created a tag to place on a gift bag and a small box for a necklace for my daughter when she graduates.

For my tag I used Authentique - Accolade paper. 
This is one of my favorite graduation papers as it's black with cream and gray, it's so classic.
I simple cut the base cardstock into a tag shape and layered.
I created the banner and used the stickers from the paper collection for the 
Congrat's word & 3 flatback silver gems along with some
gray, cream and black seam binding.

I also created a little box to place either a gift card or a jewelry. I thought for a boy/male
items this little box would be perfect for cufflinks. 
The celebrate is from a metal die I had in my stash.

Bunny Card for Inaas Ch. #104

 Hi everyone,

Can you believe March is almost over? I am amazed how fast time is going by, before we know it summer will be here. I know some of you are still getting snow, but here in N. Texas its sunny and in the 70's. Yay! However, I know rain will be upon us soon, and I am okay with that. lol

Well today over at International Art and Soul we have a new Challenge, it's the Bunny Ch. #104. I created a cute little bunny card using the Stamp Of Life Bunny Fold It Die. I just thought this was so cute and perfect for this challenge. 

I plan on creating a video on my youtube channel to share I made this little card. I would like to send this to my great niece Sophia, I think she would get a kick out of it. lol 

Here is a little bit of information on how I created this card, is I cut out the base and then cut out the bunny die several times using different color glitter papers and paper pieced them together.  Then I added the little bouquet of flowers for him to hold in his hands but the flowers are covering them up. lol  

Once I finish up the video I will post the link here for you in case you are interested. here is what die look like 















And here is my little bunny card.  I just love how it turned out. I like how the glitter paper sparkles and really adds a nice layered look to the cracked egg. lol  For the ears & his little tail I used pink felt paper I had in my stash .

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas (Natural World At Christmas)

 Hi everyone, 

Today up on the International Art & Soul blog we have a new challenge #103 - Natural World At Christmas hosted by our team member Sall. What a great challenge. 

So for my card I created a beautiful serene scene of freshly fallen snow in a backyard with a window looking outside. Inside near the window are beautiful frozen roses enclosed inside glass display cases. The paper line I used is by Ciao Bella, Frozen Roses paper collection. It totally reminded of that Christmas song, "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you goooo...lol     Anyway, I hope you you join us for this fun festive challenge.

Off To Dinner, Inaas Challenge #102

Good Morning!

Happy Valentine's Day!!  What are you doing today? Are you going out on a date? Having a nice dinner with loved ones? or Stay in for a little celebration?  Hubby & I decided to treat ourselves to go out for an early Lunch/Dinner.  I am really excited as we have not been out to dinner in a while but I think the weather may be bad here in Texas as I am sure where ever you like its been freezing cold as well. 

Since we are on talking about going out to dinner for Valentine's celebration over at International Art & Soul we are having our Inaas Challenge #102 - Off To Dinner hosted by Hazel our sweet design team member. What a fantastic them right?? I have to admit at first I didn't know what to do, but after looking over my stamps, it was super fun to decide what direction to go in. I went with a classic having wine at  dinner. But there are so many stamps you could use, tea stamps, recipe stamps, save the date, invitation to dinner stamps, all dressed up and the list can on. So I hope some of suggestions give
you some inspiration to join us for this fun theme.  CLick on the link here to join us Inaas - Ch. #102 Off To Dinner

Here is my card creation - 

For this card I used the stamp set by Repeat Impressions but I don't remember the name of the stamp set. I used 2 different paper pads as they went so well together, they are just was so pretty I couldn't resist. The fist one is one from Michael's Craft Store - Dark Florals by Craft Smith (Hot Buy) and the other one is Blue Fern paper - Timeless. I used black cs as my base.

Hearts With Love Slimline Card

 Hi everyone,

I hope you are well and having a great Sunday. Today's card is themed Hearts, so naturally I created a Valentine's Day card. I was given this KS Crafts slimline Die "With Love" as Happy Mail during Christmas time from my crafty friend Kimmy Murray.  I really think all the tiny hearts are so cute. lol  I also like the word dies that come with it. 

I created the card as an easel card so it has 3 panels and folds up nicely. The second photo below shows you how it folds out and then you set the top portion on the bottom panel, see the 1st photo. 

For this card I used my scraps from Simple Stories paper "Kissing Booth" I had a few sheets left and some chipboard ephemera and die cuts so I used those to embellish the from and bottom panel. Along with some silver glitter paper from Recollections. 

This card is for the International Art & Soul Challenge 101- Hearts.

That Winter Feeling

 Hi everyone,

I hope you all are staying safe, warm and healthy no matter where you are.  : D

I have another Wintery type of card for you and it's created with Stamperia Blue Land. I couldn't help it, lol, this paper is just so pretty.  I love the images of the little stickers I used for the card and they match the paper so well. The white deer on the tag so pretty, as it walks through the woods on a snowy day. The 3 circles are so full of wintery bliss with the night sky in one as the white horse runs through the snowy night sky, the second has glistening snowflakes falling and the last one has such a wonderful sparkle to catch the eye. 

Over at International Art & Soul we have a new challenge up and it's "Winter",  This is our Challenge 100 Winter theme. I hope you can join us. 

Most of everything to create this card I had in my stash. Supplies I used -

Stamperia paper collection - Blue Land

Recollection - silver glitter paper

Really Reasonable Ribbons - white ribbon (I don't remember the name)

InLoveArtShop - Merry Christmas Stickers pack 46 - https://bit.ly/3lZGm6e
