WW DT: Let it snow -Christmas Card

 



 Dear Scrappers,

This is my October post for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog:

For this month's challenge, sadly, we don't have a sponsor.

I used an sketch from jingle belles rock: merry-sketch-mas and chose the I chose the Winter Chickadee digital image for my card from :

I found some inspiration in the challenges bellow for my choice of papers and used a negative ornament cut (Sizzix and Hero Arts) from a previous project.
I decided to make a shaker using page protector as transparency and foam tape:


I didn't have read pearls, so I decided to complete the look by coloring the ones I had with permanent marker.

I stamped the inside of a CTMH white card with a Christmas sentiment using Candy Apple distress ink. I cut a piece of embossed cardstock to fit the outside of the card (it had Santa's image, so I liked it for this look) and some peppermint stripped printed paper for the center strip. 

I colored the Chickadee image and finished the shaker using some pearls and other Christmas fillers for the inside. I mounted all pieces together and used double side tape to add to the card.


I assembled the card using the sketch as a simple guide using double side tape, and added the colored pearls as final touch:





The outside of the card:


The inside:


A closer look at the shaker part: I like to move it!

DT CraftWell: Shaker Flower Paperclip Bookmarks

 







Hi, 

This is my next post for Craftwell. 

For this project, I used The Fancy Flowers Kit (Queen & CO). I followed the kit's instructions for color combinations and assembly instructions after using my SNAP for die cutting the pieces.

First, I wanted to make a bunch of flowers to revamp my Whooo's Making the Right Choice? Poster Board:


But then I decided to make them bookmarks by adding jumbo paperclips to their back:



I like this option so much better as it highlights the shaker parts of the flowers. I might use as little gifts for my children teachers soon.

I could still use a few to put in my poster board by attaching them to thumbtacks. This shaker kit is so much fun to play as all the other Queen & CO kits.

Other Companies:

 I hope you enjoy it this fun project and please follow Craftwell as well.

WW DT: Meowy Christmas Card

 



Dear Scrappers,

This is my August post for Winter Wonderland Challenge Blog:



The sponsor this month is: 


I chose the meowy christmas digital image for this challenge, which is super cute.

I used my Tattered Lace tag die to cut the printed image and turned it around to cut the other side as well:


I used a nice Tattered Lace printed cardstock that I had from the magazines, which coordinated well with the wintered themed image. I used a CTMH card kit and picked a nice background with similar colors to the TL printed paper. I then, fussy cute the sentiment from a second printed digital image, outlining the words with a metallic gel pen:


I colored the digital image with more gel pens and used 3D foam squares to assemble the sentiment tag and the colored image to the background paper.



I used the sketch:





Materials and tools:

Tattered Lace tags dies
Tattered Lace printed background paper
CTMH card kit
Metallic and assorted gel pens

DT CraftWell: Hello NYC, My Favorite Place Mini-Album

   





Hi, 

This is my next post for Craftwell. 

For this project, I used my last month SCT (Scrapbook and Cards Today Magazine) sampler kit. I love all the travel themed papers included and soft pastel color scheme as well as the included die cuts, with a touch of gold foil to make this summer project special:


I'm planning to put a little picture of us in the heart opening...

I specially love the taxis printed paper. It goes so well with NYC, even with the UBer trend.

I only needed to make the binding with my Krockadile and cut the corners of the paper with my Krumper (I think that is how it is called). For the binding, I made loops of green elastic cord and tied several coordinated ribbons to them:


For the title, I diecut the sentiment: "Hello" using two lovely colorful papers from the kit:


Working with kits from the same company makes it easier to combine papers, and embellishments without worrying about matching them.
