Holly Holiday Tags

Good morning friends

I have some new goodies - one is this pretty tag die from Hero Arts. I planned on making all my holiday tags this month, but so far I've only made a few. I am going to add some tags to my kids Christmas stockings, since they get those early. This die will also allow for lovely Hanukkah tags for Kelsey's stocking!

I think these tags will look so pretty packaged up in a flat cello bag.

C4C334 - Colour Challenge Card

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means there is a new challenge on the Crazy 4 Challenges Blog. Our April Hostess is Rebecca Ednie and the talented Teresa Kline from Paperie Blooms joining us as our Guest designer. 

Rebecca has this beautiful colour challenge for us:

I love this colour combo! Since I was in the mood to play with the Lawn Fawn Cactus set, I combined them with the Paisley Stage-It Stencil to create this pretty card.

Inside I used the Lots of Pops Pop-Up by Karen Burniston for Elizabeth Craft Designs.

Check out the C4C blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge. We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C334.

Stuck On You Anniversary Pop-Up Card

Good morning friends

I bought a set of beautiful sparkly embossing powders when at the Mesa Rubber Stamp Show and I love how they look on dark papers.

I have seen the cactus done with a moustache on Pinterest, so I thought I'd do the same and make an Anniversary card for our eldest daughter and her hubby.

The moustache is from the Props 1 set - but I refrained from adding a cowboy hat as well. For now - I know I won't be able to hold out for long.

Double Pop Mother's Day Card

Good morning friends

A friend and I found a few (cough)  12 x 12" paper stacks for a good price while we were out shopping together. I've been using one of the stacks a fair bit - the designs are large with glossy bits. It's quite a heavy weight and of course cracks if you try to fold it. But it works like a charm for flat panels.

This is our eldest daughter's Mother's Day card - she loves roses. The clear sticker came in the same paper stack so I added it to the front.

Inside, is a double Lorna Label Pop-Up! The card is a large 5 x 7", dictated by the patterned paper on the front. I knew I wanted to use the Big Shot so cut my inner panel to fit and doodled borders above and below.

This is my first time using the new Elizabeth Craft Designs COLOURED Soft Finish Card Stock. They generously sent the design team members two sheets of each colour and it's wonderful stuff. I have already ordered a handful of single colours and will eventually add them all to my card stock collection. It's white on the back which opens up all kinds of possibilities!

Little Pig Flat Valentine

Good morning friends

Yes, I still have Valentine's to share. I had been playing around with the Pop it Ups Character dies for Valentines and Virgil the Pig looked so cute I had to use him on a card.

Wouldn't this make a fun Birthday card with balloons instead of the heart and a birthday sentiment?

Latte Love Pull Card

Good morning friends

Today's share was made using scraps from my stamping table, and a new stamp set from Verve. There were two pieces of this pretty Paris themed glittered patterned paper, a half sheet of black card stock, half a doily, some pink card scraps and a die cut heart from a different project. And everything came together to make a card and help clear off the table. Gotta love that.

The sweet little coffee cup and stamped words inside are from Verve - this set was a prize I won from the Coffee Lover's Blog Hop, which was a lot of fun. The stamp set is one I will use a fair bit - there are so many cute images and words in the set. You can see the whole set HERE. Such an awesome prize!

I used the Spiral Circle Pull Card (SCPC) for the card base, and the notches still work to hold the card closed because they slide in behind the doily.  The recipient can simply pull the sides of the card apart to reveal the inside.

The top left heart was die cut into the cream stamped circle with a scrap of pink card stock in behind it. The second heart was die cut from another scrap of pink.

 I really like the Latte verse ... it's not the typical Thanks a Latte and I will get a lot of use out of this one.

It's Masculine Card Monday here on my blog and I have a Birthday card made with my pretty new embossing powders and the Lawn Fawn succulents. I love desert imagery so HAD to have this set when it was released last year.

It's hard to see in the photo, but the black band across the bottom centre is a die cut stitched strip.
