Fancy Folds #211 4 Crafty Chicks

Thanks again for coming to my blog, today, 4 Crafty Chicks Challenge today is #211 Fancy Folds, so I tried something a wee bit different, not sure how much I like it, but here it is any way.  I folded the small piece on the front of my card and adhered my image onto it.  Hope this makes sense.  Then it didn't fold down right, so I added a clothes pin with a snowflake to clip it together.  Added a ribbon and brad.  I colored my image using Copic Markers. 
The stamp I used for the front of my card is from Wild Rose Studio called Snowman Hugs, and the inside stamps are from American Crafts-Clear Stamps.

4 Crafty Chicks #210 Real/Faux Sewing

Welcome back to my blog and welcome to the first week of September, wow summer sure has flown by fast.  I can't believe we are into the first week.
The challenge today at 4 Crafty Chicks is Real or Faux Sewing.  As I used to do so much sewing on fabric, it is also fun to sew on paper crafts.  Some like the faux sewing or stitching as some like to call it.  It is my turn to host the challenge, pop on over check out the design team creations and we are also having our Guest Designer Call, so lots of fun stuff going on over at 4 Crafty Chicks.
My cards, as I couldn't just pick one after making two of them, are pretty clean and simple this time around.  Some sewing around the edge, sentiment and some punched out leaves, I used the Bella Blvd-Thankful pattern paper and I also stamped a SU Medallion stamp and used clear embossing powder to enhance it on the solid card stock.  Thanks again for stopping and look forward to see your creations over at 4 Crafty Chicks.  Till next time, happy crafting!

Spooky High Hopes Sneak Peek

Hello friends, Wow it is the first week of September, the time flies by.  Thanks to everyone who stopped by at One Crazy Stamper last month for our Inspiration month, and I hope you did get a chance to stop and see what the design team created for you.  Their talent is awesome.  So now onto September yes we are having a challenge once again, and we are releasing these wonderful stamps from High Hopes Rubber Stamps.  
The Challenge this month is Halloween/Christmas!
My first card this month is something I don't do very often so hope you can see what I tried to do.  I don't really do Halloween, but here is what I came up with.
I added trees and branches using the dies from Memory Box, and used Distress Ink from Ranger and my sponges.  I masked off a spot with Mask-it for my moon. I popped up my little hanging bat. High Hopes Rubber Stamp-Just Hanging Out. Of course I colored him using my copic markers.
Thanks again for stopping here.  I hope you get a chance this month to check out what One Crazy Stamper is sharing and play along, great prizes and always a fun New Release from High Hope Rubber Stamps.  Till next time, Happy Crafting!

Happy Birthday

 Hello friends, our challenge at 4 Crafty Chicks today is brought to you by our good friend Tamie and she has asked us to create something "Masculine"  She sure knows how to make me work that girl.  I have troubles with man cards, as I don't get to add flowers....hahaha but I did get to add ribbon with little balls on them.  Not sure what they really are called.  I have a name for them, but better not put that on here. Wink, wink!  My card today, is for my brother-in-law's birthday, he is a golfer guy, and I thought it was pretty funny.
 The bugaboo image still makes me laugh every time I see it.  I colored my image using copic makers.  Added some glossy accents to his glasses.  I used the dogglebug design inc. pattern paper.  Added some dots on the bottom corner, and popped up the happy birthday with some 3D-foam dots.
Thanks again friends, for stopping and play along with the chicks challenge, Tamie has sure brought her A-game with this challenge.  
Till next time, enjoy that crafting!
