CCC: April

Hey everyone! Have you stopped by the Christmas Craft Creations blog to play along with this month’s challenge? Our theme is Tartan/Plaid.

For my card I started with some buffalo plaid from Miss Kate Cuttables and paired it with some green polka dot paper also from MKC and some green foil cardstock. The ornament is from a Stampin Up punch that I cut out about 6x to give it some thickness and height and then added a sentiment from my stash. I hope this inspires you a little bit for your own project and that you will play along with us as well!

2CCC: #52

Ok one and all! We are up and running over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies with this month’s new challenge! We are being sponsored by Jan’s Digi Stamps.

We are sponsored this month by Jan’s Digi Stamps and they generouslyprovided images to our DT use on their inspiration projects.  

I used the Merry Chris-Moose digi for my Christmas in July card. Our theme is actually ANYTHING GOES but I thought it would be fun!

I colored him just with my copics. The DP is from Miss Kate Cuttables…i thought the buffalo print went so well with his shift! I also added just a little bit of glitter paper for an added accent. Our DT has some really great projects for you to see using a variety of images from the shop so be sure to check them out!

CCC: Tag or ATC

Wow! Last week of May! This year is flying by isn’t it! OK…I’m here to give you your reminder for our May challenge at Christmas Craft Creations!

This month it is tags and ATCs! A nice little change right? They still have to have a Christmas theme to them of course.

I created this cute little ATC coin! It’s the same size as an ATC but in a rounded shape and oh so easy to make!

The DP is from Miss Kate Cuttables! She doesn’t just have these amazing die cuts you can buy but papers as well!

After cutting out the circles about 6 times I glued them all together to make them nice and thick . I then cut out the DP and added it to the top layer. I wanted a bit of a buffer between the DP and my sentiment die cut so I just added a nice red piece of cardstock. The die was one I picked up a long time ago so I don’t even remember who it is by.

I hope you enjoy it and come by the blog and enter our challenge with your ATC or tag. We are looking forward to see what you create!

The Wine

We are at the halfway point in our Pile it On challenge of Orange/Black/Purple.  In case you forgot, we are being sponsored by Ike’s Art this month.

For this week’s card I went with a bit of a fun Halloween card using the colors.  The image is from Miss Kate Cuttables and I flattened it in my cricut explore and then cut it out.  The sentiment was a free one that I got online from LoveSVGonline.com  They have sooo many free images that you can use, it’s crazy!

I added a bit of glossy accents and some wink of stella, just to give it some sparkle and shine.  I also thought it would be fun with some enamel dots.  The DP is just from my stash.  I hope you think it’s fun and don’t forget to play along with us!

Entered into these challenges:

As You Like It: CAS or Fun & Fancy (and why) – I always struggle with CAS cards as I like to add lots of layers and bits and bobs..this is a bit on the simpler side and still (I think) a fun card without all the frills and bits.

Go Green

Hello all….

Green is my favorite color so I love ST. Patrick’s Day.  However, I don’t have a lot of supplies for the day so I don’t make a lot of cards.

I did give it a shot with some old stuff I had in my holiday box.  The paper is from Reminisce and some Imagination Project from 2005.  I don’t even think they are around anymore.

The image is a freebie that I got from Miss Kate Cuttables called Happy Pot O Gold 🙂  I just did a flatten in my design space. The ribbon is just from Michaels and the stamp is from Stampin Up (Greatest Greetings)

I created this for the Paper Play Sketches challenge this week.

UYS Challenge # 239 – Heritage

Ok, so it’s been awhile since I’ve posted on a challenge at UYS..ack!  Life does seem to feel busy and yet not….until it’s time for things like this and I have nothing prepared because I was doing so much other stuff!

Anyway, our challenge on the blog today is the theme Heritage…it could mean some old papers and supplies you have yet to use, or perhaps an old photo that you found, maybe it is some vintage looking ephemera that would look great on a card….what does it mean to you!

For me, I found some crazy old paper from over 20 years ago that I have been hoarding obvously!  So I finally decided to use it with some old pics from my 3rd trip to the UK back in 2000!

The British paper is so old I can’t even remember who makes it anymore!  The dots and stripes I believe is from Simple Stories…

The die cuts are from Miss Kate Cuttables, thickers for the alphas and then some internet fonts for the journalling.

Make sure you stop by the blog to play along with our challenge this week and to see what the other DT have created for you!
