Let’s Play BINGO

Hello all!

I am hosting this week’s challenge at Use Your Stuff and we are playing BINGO!  I’ve created a fun bingo card to use on your project (a great way to get the MOJO going as well if you are stuck!).  Here’s the card , there are lots of fun items to play with.

Here is the card I created using the horizontal line of red, die cuts/cut aparts, hearts and doily

The DP is from American Crafts XOXO collection. The doily, die cuts and white foam heart are from recollections and the glittered hearts I cut using some Recollections glitter paper and my little $$ store heart punch.  I hope you like it and hop on over to the blog to play along and to see what the rest of the DT has created for you!

I heart you

I’m a bit behind the ball here!  Our new challenge is up on the Use Your Stuff blog and Tammy C’s challenge is to use hearts on your project.

That shouldn’t be too hard considering that it is getting close to Valentine’s Day and many of us are working on VDay related projects right!

Here is a card I created! I’ve been hanging around in the Cricut Design space this last week seeing what I can play around with and this was one of the cards that we could create!

The DP in the back is from Papermania in a collection called Red Hot.  I got this as a gift years ago and have been trying to use it up!  The heart hands are from the Cricut design space (i’m not sure which cartridge it is from as it was one of those Make it Now projects)  and then I went over it all with my wink of Stella pen for a little glitz.

I hope you like it and don’t forget to play along with us!

A wee Valentine

So today I am playing along with the Paper Play Sketches for this week.

I have a bunch of Valentine’s stuff that I haven’t used since well last Valentine’s day so i thought I would break it out.  I used the Love Me Do collection from My Mind’s Eye from a few years ago.

I used my Cricut to cut out the Cupid Bear from Teddy Bear Parade.  The sentiment is from Verve Stamps.

Just for some extra texture and dimension I used some glitter paper for his little toga and stickles for his nose and the bow & arrow.

I hope you like it and you still have some time to play along with the sketch!

Glittery Valentine

Can you believe February will be here soon?  My birthday is in about 2 weeks!  I’m celebrating with a bunch of my friends and having a wine and paint party….but that’s another story….

Our new challenge is ready for you at the Use Your Stuff blog!  Renee is challenging us to use sequins and/or glitter on our pages.  Now we all know that I have a love/hate relationship with glitter that I am not sure I will ever get over.  Certainly not at this point, so I decided to forego actual glitter and instead, cracked open a big stack of glittered paper that I had.  I really loved the red and knew it would be perfect for a Valentine’s card I need to send out to my Secret Cupid on the SCS site.

I totally CASE’d it off of this card from Pinterest!  I hope you like it and I hope to see you play along with us on the blog this week!

No Lion, I love you

Happy Friday…day before Valentine’s Day!  Tammy here with another fun image for you.  I picked this No Lion, I love you from the store because I thought it would make an adorable Valentine’s Day card!  I love the store example which is in pink and red (perfect for Valentine’s) but I needed mine to match my DP so I went with some yellow.

The flowers are from Walmart and the little pearl dots were in my stash.  I colored him with my Copics and the DP is from My Mind’s Eye. I just cut the hearts out using some of the left over paper.  I added just a bit of glossy accents on his heart as well.  I hope you like it and don’t forget to check out this adorable image in the store here.

Bling it on Baby

As you are reading this, I am basking in the Cuban sunshine, sipping alcoholic drinks, eating lobster (well maybe not since I’m allergic) and having a grand time finishing up my holiday!

I decided to go with a Valentine’s day card with the challenge.  It feels like forever since I’ve made one and goodness knows I’ve got the supplies.  I just decided to go with some bits and bobs from my stash.  I don’t know who the DP is from but the little die cuts are all from K & Company.  The doily is from the $$ store and the bling is all from my stash.   I’ve got some pearls, a dainty rose and a cute bling heart in there as well.  The ribbon is left over from my project last week 🙂

Have you been to the blog?  The ladies have blinged it out!  Go see! 🙂
