Thanks a Bunch!

Here's my second post for today! Made a simple thank you card. Used a circle punch for the flowers and a button in the middle. I used a paper piercer to punch the holes for the stems and hand-stitched it with embroidery thread. That was fun.

Made an easter card using a new stamp I got from a stamp set from Taylored Expressions! I've wanted a stamp with "cuppie" for a long time! And I like that there's a "peep" in the basket too! Yum!

Made my first card using "Yoshimi" from the most recent release from Sister Stamps! I didn't want to attempt to fix it but I realized after the card was done that I colored her headband black! :( I think I must have been tired while coloring and I really thought it was her hair! I only noticed while looking at someone else's sample. Oh well, I still had lots of fun with this card! Hard to tell in the pic but I used pop dots for the fans to give some effect. And used embossing folder for the first background and paper punch cherry blossoms I got from an RAK.

Challenge: Sketch For You To Try - sketch

Thanks for visiting!
Hope you're having a great day!

Edit- Yay! I was informed, (in the comment below) I colored Yoshimi correctly! :) Phew! So it is her hair, not part of a headband.

There's a Bun In The Oven!

No not for me...yet...but I thought I'd just make this card and keep on the side. I had to get this stamp set too from Lawn Fawn again!! I popped up the little bun to give some dimension.

You're My Stud-Muffin

Made a simple card using a new stamp set I purchased from Lawn Fawn! I like most of their image because they have smiley faces! :) I popped up the muffin and added googly eyes! Thought I'd make it a little fun. Made a mistake with the hand drawn stitching again! :( Oops!

Today at Lollipop Crafts, it is Sponsor Spotlight. This week our wonderful sponsor is Karber! Here's a little info about them:

KARBER is a company created by Karla Barradas and Berenice Rendon. All began for passion to art and crafts, as friends we decided to join our different talents. In July 2010 that journey would lead us from hobby to a business and “Karber Digital Images” was created.  Recently, Karber Digital Images expanded to offer it's customers rubber stamps available through Sparkle Creations Store (http://www.shop-sparklecreationsrubberstamps.com/category/karber) and therefore,  have changed their name simply to Karber Stamps.  Visit Karber Stamps store at http://www.karberdigital.com/ or their blog at http://karbers.blogspot.com/.  

I used one of their digi images called "Balloon Bear". Super cute. I used the layout for my card from hereI just noticed after I uploaded the pic that it is crooked! Oops! :O You still have time to participate in our challenge this week, with the theme being "With love, create a Valentine's project- anything but a card. Please check out the rest of the DT creations here.

Hope you all  had a wonderful Valentine's Day!

Finally got to do a card challenge for fun! Not too satisfied with this one...could not find the right papers too match! :( Also, this is my first time using this cute TGF image too! I still have a lot of uninked stamps from 2011! :( 

Challenge: All That Scraps - Anything Goes

Besides the majority of time that I'm papercrafting, I try to squeeze in time for other crafts, one being plastic canvas! I haven't finished something for ages! :( I decided to make a bathroom toilet paper/tissue holder! Here's how it came out...

Wishing you a day that sparkles

Made a card using Anya Princess no. 2. Finally remembered to use her and happy because I believe this is my first "princess" card too! Since the sentiment has the word sparkle in it, I put stickles on the dress and the hearts. Couldn't find any princessy DP. :( 

Hope you're all having a great weekend! Thanks for visiting!

Happy Holidays!

I'm having fun making Christmas cards because I know I'm getting a head start! :) I don't feel rushed. Used a cute Pink Cat Studio stamp and also recycled the "string" from an old gift bag. (A secret: I like to use recycled  ribbon/string because they come in different styles and sometimes you can't find it in a craft store.) Just something different and I'm trying to be "green". :)

Thanks for your visit!
