Hello all! Welcome to the blog. Our new challenge is up at Use It Tuesday this week. It’s all about the stick….adhesive, stickers, tape, anything that sticks down. We want to see it.
For my project today I made this cute little pregnancy card.
For my ‘stick’ I used some good old fashioned glue, as well as some double sided tape for my rick rack. I also added in some adhesive mesh for dimension and a little Glossy Accents to stick down the stars and to add some shine to her head band. I hope you enjoy this week’s card and be sure to stop by the blog to play along with us this week. The DT has created some great projects for you to enjoy! Get your stick on!!!
Hello everyone! Welcome to Monday and a new challenge at Use Your Stuff. This week’s challenge is to use limited supplies…perhaps it is a CAS card, using some old supplies in a new way. Perhaps like me, you just want to use some little bits and bobs that are already on your desk.
For this week’s card, I used a candy cane striped embossing folder that was already on my desk from another project. So was this little piece of red cardstock, some bling, ribbon and a stamp set that I had used on another project.
A pretty basic but pretty card. I hope you will stop by the blog to see what the other DT has created and to play along with us as well.
It challenge day at Creative Corner Challenges. Our theme this week is Sing, Sing a Song. We want you to create a project inspired by any song, by any artist that moves you.
For my card I was inspired by the song ‘It Ain’t Easy Being Green’ by Kermit the Frog. I don’t know why but this song has been stuck in my head for days….
I created a really simple card for this one, using one of the images from our great sponsor this week, Scribbles Designs!
Here is my card
I also created this card with Tracy’s Core’dinations Core and Stamping challenge in mind. I used the Core’dinations Spotted 6×6 pack for this card and then did some sanding on it, to allow the white to come through. The DP was in my paper box and I received it from a swap ages ago. I added some ribbon and bling from my stash as well as a glittered starburst I found, just for some added texture. The stamp sentiment is from Stampendous Friendly Messages and is one of my favorite go to stamps.
I hope you enjoy the card. Don’t forget to stop by the blog and check out the other inspiration pieces from the DT and play along with this week’s challenge.

And here we have another card created for the Core’dinations online crop. The theme for Clare’s challenge was to use your core’dinations cardstock to make quick and easy Christmas Cards…believe me, you can’t get quick and easier than this. I think the whole card took me 5 mins to create. I used the white from the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors (this paper pack is getting quite the workout over the last few days!).
I knew I wanted to do a white on white card because I really love the look of them and what better theme than snowflakes. I decided to brush the dust off of my Christmas embossing folders and chose this snowflake one. I then used a sizzix snowflake die and my SU punches to set the sentiment. I did a bit of distressing on the edges and added some pearls and bling (oh those little blings are hard to work with!) to set it off.
Make sure you stop by and play along to win some great Core’dinations packs!
Ok so have 2 more cards for the Core’dinations online crop. These ones were a bit trickier for me because they were outside my comfort zone.
The first one is for Tami Mayberry’s CAS card challenge. Wow! CAS, not quite an easy task for me. I love to put layers and embellishments. However, I managed to do it.
I used some more of the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors stack for the punched border and the green one is from (I believe the Core Essentials brights pack. I long ago took the packs apart when I filed under color so I’m pretty sure that is it). I ran it through my cuttlebug (candy cane stripe). The embellishments I chose were some SU twine in white as well as this brad buddy wreath from HOTP that I found in my Christmas embellishment bag. The sentiment is from Stampin Up. I used 2 punches, one SU and the other is I believe Marvy Uchida.
For my second card, I chose Ellen’s create your own embellishment challenge. It was a bit trickier than I thought it would be but I figured it out! the base is from the Stacy Julian Happy colors (I try to use as much of the paper as I can ) I sanded it down a bit before adhering. I then took some of my scrap core-dinations pieces in green and then I punched out little circles. I then took those circles and (tried to) create a wreath! I just added a bit of ink on them for some dimension and then some red bling for the berries. The sentiment is one I found in my embellishment box that was sent to me in a swap. Then just finished it off with a bow
I hope you like them, and I hope you are playing along with some of the challenges as well
the blue tag: I used a core’dinations core tag from their pastel pack. I embossed it through my cuttlebug, then distressed it (with my core’dinations sanding block which came in one of my swag bags from the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival with Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. Core’dinations is always such a great sponsor). I then inked it with my TH distress ink. I punched out a couple of green leaves from the Tim Holtz Distress pak (2.5×4.5 mat stack pak). The flowers were from my stash and the sentiment is from Viva Las Vegas Stamps.
The Christmas tag I used the Core’dinations Stacy Julian Happy Colors Collection. I used a Sizzix die then ran it through my embossing folder and added a bit of distressing. The DP is from Echo Park and the image & sentiment were in my stamped image box from a swap ages ago. The poinsettia is from Recollections and then I added just a bit of color with my copics and some stickles for sparkle.
I hope you like them and don’t forget to play along. There are lots of Core’dinations packs up for grabs!
