Address Labels

This was a simple little project but I think it still works perfectly. I made some return address labels on the computer and printed them on sticky paper and then cut them out with a Spellbinders die for the Make it Monday challenge. I stamped grass (loving this stamp) and flowers with the PTI Garden Variety set. I bordered the bottom of my envelope to match. I think you could use whichever stamps to work with the season.  I blurred my address for privacy reasons.

Bookmarker Challenge

It's another day of snow and slush here : (
 Oh well more time at my paper crafting : )  This is a bookmarker for the challenge at Joans Gardens I decided to make my marker in the shape of a heart. You get to use up your scraps with this project and make something cute as a bonus. I covered the back and stamped a little something it to finish it. So that's it... hope I win!

Papertrey Ink March Blog Hop Challenge

It's that time again!! Here's the photo to spark some creations and enter the challenge at Papertrey . 

Here's my take on the challenge. When I saw the photo all I saw was lots of candy and springtime so I just had to make a candy holder with a spring theme. It was a fun cheery poject and brightened a snowy day here : )

I used MS dsp for the bottom. PTI Aqua mist and Lemon tart papers and a bit of Aqua mist ribbon. 
 Stamps used: P'TI Butterfly Kisses, Polka Dot basics, Garden Variety and Everyday Buttoon Bits
Cut the center with Nestabilities.
Filled a little ziplock with M+M's. 
Here's the back and sideviews.

Graduated color

I tried another graduated color project making a rainbow this time. It worked really good. Nice blend of colors and all. Definitely works!! I used the cloud die cuts from PTI and the bird and hearts are from the Little Bitty Bird stamp set. Embossed the clouds with a cuttlebug folder and finished with a SU smile sentiment. Now to enter it in the Make it Monday challenge

Here's my card for the Make it Monday challenge . Not sure if my colors are leaning toward sunrise or sunset. Maybe more sunrise?? I did my background with Copics and thinking I would like to try a "water ink" one as well. Looks like fun. I used the PTI stamp set Through the Trees.
Hope everybody is having a Happy Wednesday!!

Easter Card

The weather is gloomy on this Monday morning, feels more like winter is back with the snow and icy conditions so I decided I would get my card done for the challenge at Joans Gardens. Joan and Selma create a bit of a challenge because of the different components. It's always good to stretch the creativity. I really have to think to make it work to my liking. Here's what was required- Easter card -Embossed background -Colors for Easter -Flourish -Rhinestones. I got it all covered!!

Color Kissing Make it Monday

I'm back with another challenge post. To see all the details on Papertrey's Make it Monday challenge #57 click HERE. It certainly looks easier than it actually is to do. I was surprised that so many backgrounds just don't look right with certain stamps. I tried some script but found out that when I "kissed" it onto my stamp it came out backwards. So that was my trials and errors for this project. This card looks better in real than it does on the picture. 
I used PTI Text Boxed, Polka Dot Basics and Everyday Button Bits for my project. The rest is pretty straight forward.

Altered project

I'm back after a long break and a wonderful holiday in Hawaii. It sure has taken some doing to get me back in the groove of being home and into a routine of "things to do" but slowly I am getting back at it. I missed doing the challenges and my crafting. And so for a altered project for a challenge over at  Joans Gardens we had to use a recycled box, preferably round, color theme my choice, lace, and use pearls and flowers. So I think I got it covered. I used a Macadamia Candy can. Added MS paper. Glued on some May arts flowers and the pearls are in the centers. With the weather so warm and spring like I just had to go with an Easter project. Added a curly wire for a make shift handle and it's done.  Hope you like it!!
