Hello Crafty friends and Happy Wednesday to you all!
Today I have a sweet card I made for Club Scrap using the beautiful new October Deluxe Scandinavia Club Kit. I'm LOVING all the stamps in this set, and on my card for today I used Scandinavia Art Nouveau & Jumbo Unmounted set to stamp with.

To start with I layered my card using the 12" x 12" grey sheet of card stock, love this one, as it has a little weave embossing on it , its layered with the 12 x 12 pink card stock from the kit as well. Then I chose the DARLING 12" x 12" print and layered it with just the pink. For my main stamped panel I used the Mini Misti tool and that way I could place my stamps as I went, and keep stamping using different color pens.

Flowers were done using the 12" x 12" printed sheet and Cheery Lynn's Shasta Daisy die. I then distressed the edges using SU! cool Caribbean ink pad. For the centers of my flowers I used Really Reasonable Ribbons embellishments. 
Lastly I punched out some branches using the Martha Stewart punch.
I had a lot of fun stamping these darling stamps up, and using the Mini Misti tool to do it. Love how it keeps everything in place, so you can stamp multiple times. Also LOVING Club Scraps sweet design paper with the darling animals on it. I had to place the top panel over to the side, so you could see the sweet owl on this paper. Cant wait to share some of my other projects with you all using this darling release.
Hope you enjoyed my card for today, and thank you so much for stopping by!
Hugs to all,

Sweet Christmas Tag

Hello crafty friends, today I have a sweet Christmas tag I created for Really Reasonable Ribbon using some of their gorgeous ribbons from this months club, and then some embellishments as well. I picked 2 ribbons and then the lace from this months kit. Love them all!!!

On my tag I chose to use Graphic45 design paper to cover this large tag, then cut one of the design papers that had little tags and added this one using the foam tabs, and that is where the Santa and Sentiment came from. I had some red Poinsettia's that I had cut extra for my card yesterday and thought they would be cute on this tag, so I added what I had left. I also added some 8mm pearls, metal leaves, and green leaves to the cluster of poinsettia's. I added lace across the bottom, and then used the large diamond satin to tie through the hole, and then used the other satin to create my bow.

I had a lot of fun creating this sweet little Christmas tag, as it took very little time, and was super easy to make. Love when you can make tags fast, and they turn out cute! :)

 Poinsettia's -Were done using Cheery Lynn's Poinsettia strip die. I cut out a coordinating design paper from the same stack called "Merry & Bright" from Pebbles.

Stamens were used, and are the RRR gold ones. I punched holes in the poinsettia flowers so i could put the stamens through and hot glue them together, this was done last. Leaves  I used 2 different sizes on this card.

Cheery Lynn Friendly Felines

 Hello crafty friends and Happy Monday to you all! Today's card was created for Cheery Lynn Designs using their DARLING dies! I LOVE these Friendly Felines, as they are super cute, and fun to color up. I also used some other dies as well on this card for today.

My card measures 6" x 6" and I used a dark grey for the card base, then orange for the layers too. The design paper is super sweet and perfect for Halloween. Its Pebbles TRICKS and TREATS paper stack. On each layer I used a lavender thread to do the sewing on the machine. Each Feline was distress using inks. And put together using one of my favorite glues from Cheery Lynn called "Best Glue Ever" I did however use a copic on the middle kitty, and then distressed his face,tail,and legs. I also added some white gel dots for fun.

My sentiment is from The Project Bin and was stamped in a purple ink, and then I distressed the circle using the die for the frame and then distressing, that is why it has 2 shades. Circle was cut using Cheery Lynns LPC4 Circle pierce and cut die set. Then I also used 2 dies behind it, they are B888 Flourish frame cut in a black and white coordinating design paper. Then I cut the DL314 Quadrafoil Square Doily using a grey card stock.

All dies were cut using the Big Sister Die cut machine.

Ribbons and embellishment are from Really Reasonable Ribbon. Layers were done using foam tabs for 3-D look.

Have a Creepy Halloween

Hello Crafty Friends and Happy Friday to you all!
Today's card was designed for The Project Bin Stamps & Really Reasonable Ribbons Challenge that started today. I also used some of Cheery Lynn's super sweet die's!

Aww and I have to share the newest member to our family. His name is Gizmo named by my oldest Daughter Britney! heheheeh We thought he looked like a Gizmo so its perfect for him. He also LOVES the craft room, and spends lots of time down here with me, except he isn't crafting, he is getting into stuff, and having fun! :) 
of course in the photo below he is resting under the lights on my work area..hehehee little cutie!
For my card today, I started out by using the Halloween Tricks and Treats by Pebbles stack, laying each layer with black and orange card stock, and then sewing each layer including the sentiment layer which I stamped using the The Project Bins "Creepy Halloween" set in black ink, on white card stock and dusting around the edges with orange and black from Tim Holtz distress inks. All sewing is done in white thread on this card.

Next I cut out the Cheery Lynn Friendly Felines using white card stock and colored with copic marker, and dusted in the darker color. Eyes were colored and nose using copic markers too. The Twisted Tree was cut in a brown card stock, making it super easy and fun for my card :)

Bows were created using Really Reasonable Ribbons Swiss Black Polka Dot Satin, and then the spider ribbon from Septembers Ribbon Assortment. I also used Really Reasonable Ribbons Foam tabs for layering the popped up layers.

Thank you for stopping by and have a super awesome Day!
Hugs to all,

Welcome Baby Treat Bags & Diaper Cake

Hello everyone and Happy Tuesday!
Today I wanted to share these darling Welcome Baby Treat bags & Diaper Cake that I created for A Special Baby shower I did this past weekend for my Son and his Girlfriend who are due to have our grandson this December 25th. We are all so excited! I used Really Reasonable Ribbon to create both the Diaper Cake, and I made 32 of these super sweet treat bags and had a lot of fun creating them. They have candy bars inside them, for a Fun little treat.

So for the bags I used what I had , thank God I had 36 of these..hehehehe, I then used dies to cut out the fancy label and the Cheery Lynn Pierced stacker die. I then used SU! punches for the scallop circle and the circle. The little stamped sentiment is an old SU! stamp.

To layer each of the die cuts, I used Really Reasonable Ribbons Thin Foam Tabs. Then to close the flap on the top I used Scor-Tape in the 1", as it made it easy to do 32 of these. The big brown bow was done with Really Reasonable Ribbons brown Satin Ribbon, and next I used what I had left of the sweet baby hands blue grosgrain ribbon,  And for the centers of the bows I used brad buttons that I had a ton of in my stash.

Really Reasonable Ribbon Supplies Used:
Thin Foam Tabs white
Scor-Tape 1" to close the flap
Double Faced Satin Ribbon
Baby Hands blue grosgrain ribbon
polka Dots 1 1/2"

This is one of the diaper cakes I made for the shower, it uses the Really Reasonable Ribbon Brown Satin Double faced as well. I also used the Baby Blue and brown Polka Dot Grosgrain and used the solid sides of those by just flipping the ribbon over and using the backside, as I needed it to be solid for this cake.

I hope you enjoy my post for today, as I really had so much fun planning this fun shower. I will share a couple of other photo's in my post here for you all! Hugs!

Here are the Proud Momma and Daddy to be! So exciting! You can see the bags and the diaper cake to the right side :)
