Easter Card

 Good Day Everybody,

Hope you all are doing well. Today I am sharing my Easter card I created for International Art & Soul  challenge #129 Easter Chick and Rabbits.

To create this card I used a cute little Rabbit cutting die that came with a carrot shaker. I adhered googly eyes to the rabbit to make it more fun. I used a Happy Easter stamp from my stash. 


Thanks for stopping by. Head over to  International Art & Soul to check out the teamies to see what they created and join in the fun Easter challenge chicks or rabbits. #129.

Furry Friends Theater Card

Good Day everyone,

I hope you are all doing well.  Today I share a card that I created for a crafty friend who lost her beloved furbaby, Paddington. He is such a sweetheart, he crossed over to the rainbow bridge about a week ago. It is so hard when we lose our furbabies, they are our children and such a huge part of our lives. 
This card is for the Furry Friends Challenge #118 at International Art and Soul. I hope you get a chance to join in the fun. I love interactive cards they are so fun for any occasion. I also created a birthday one as well, both photos are below. 
I will have the tutorial up on YouTube Channel soon. 

This card I created for my mom's birthday.

Holidays Here and Aboard - Christmas

 Good Morning everybody,

Today over at International Art & Soul we have a new challenge up - Holidays Here & Aboard Ch. #111.

We would be so happy for you to join us for this fun challenge for any project you create. You can submit any Holiday crafty project cards, altered items, canvases, scrapbook pages or anything else you would like to share with us. 

So what's been going on?? WELL, I have collaborated with Kimmy Murray in the first of many design paper collections and we are so happy to bring to you our first paper collection designed by Salty Beach Scrapper Designs. This is such a beautiful collection. Right now for the first collection, Like Bees to Honey, you can find on etsy -

The card I created for the challenge #111 - Holidays Here and Aboard is a Christmas card using paper designed by Salty Beach Scrapper which will be out in July 2021. The name of the paper collection is The Beauty of Christmas. So this is a sneak peek of the a few of the papers and cut aparts within the collection. 

My card was inspired by a card I seen on pinterest.
I thought it was a really cool design. However, I added a few items to it that 
were not shown in the photo on pinterest.
I adhered the design paper to the cardstock and then cut out the circle. 
I fussy cut the tree, bells, and flowers with candle shown on the inside. 

In this photo it shows the circle that was cut out attached to the arm and it has a magnet so it
closes easily. I also fussy cut the lantern and I placed some flowers beneath the clock 
to make it look 3D.

Once you open the arm I added the sentiment inside and another wreath sentiment inside the circle.
I think it looks so pretty.

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. 

Click here to join the Intaas Ch #109 - Graduation 

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.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you can join us for the challenge. 

Have a great Day!!

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     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.
