Scrappy Mom Guest Designer: Sneak Peek Card #3

Hello to all my bloggy friends out there. I am so excited because today is my Friday!! I took tomorrow off to prep for a craft show I am doing on Saturday. I am here to show you my sneak peak card #3 as guest designer for Scrappy Mom Stamps. I used the "That's Entertainment!" stamp set for this card. I decided to use the sentiment, (That's a fact Jack). This sentiment comes from one of my FAVORITE movies ever!! I don't know if the wonderful ladies over at Scrappy Mom's got this from the movie I am thinking of, I will have to find out. Do you know what movie I am talking about!? It's an oldie but a goodie, it's called Stripes, with Bill Murray, do you remember it?? I seen this sentiment, and thought of the perfect card for it, here it is.
This sweet little image actually came from a Christmas file called "Santa's Helpers" from Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbons. This set has a lot of cute little toys in it, it's very versatile. My paper is from Crate paper and truthfully I have been hoarding it because I thought it was to cute to cut up, lol. I just love the vintage feel it has! I stamped my sweet little face of my jack in the box using a Peachy keen stamp. I hope you all enjoy my sweet little card, thank you all for stopping by.

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-16: Anything Goes

Well hello again, this is my 3rd post of the day, no my blog did not get hijacked, I just have been busy crafting!! I am here to show you my card for the anything goes challenge over at Peachy Keen Stamps challenge blog. Here is my card......

I used my PKSC-16 April 2013 kit, to make this card. I also used the svg file that goes along with it to cut out my jar. I decided to wanted to mimic the on jar on the top left, so that's what I did. I used a little heart punch that I got along time ago in the dollar bin at Walmart. I added some Natural bakers twine by Timeless twine, around the rim of my jar and just tied a simple bow. This card was super easy to make and I just love how it turned out. Thanks for stopping by make sure to check out my other two creations from earlier, they are 3D creations ;) I am not going to be saying goodbye for long I have a feeling, hehe!!

Good morning and happy Monday all my bloggy friends. When Monday rolls around so does the fun at the FCCB blog. This weeks challenge is to Create a 3-D project. Here is my project.....
I used my Cricut Imagine to make both projects. The purse came from the "Best Friends" cartridge, I just changed the paper pattern. The decorations on the purse include: Buttons, bakers twine by Timeless Twine, Strawberry Cupcake, prima rose, stickers by AC, sequences.
My sweet little notebook was decorated using the "Better Together" cartridge. My little peach is cut at 2.5". Other items used include: Scrappy Moms Stamp set "Charmed Life", button, Strawberry Cupcake bakers twine by Timeless Twine, AC glitter tape, sequences.

I want to thank you all for stopping by and hope you will find time to join in on the challenge.

Scrappy Mom's April Guest Designer!!

TGIF, my sweet bloggy friends!! What a fantastic day for me, not only is it Friday but this is my 1st post as a Scrappy Mom guest designer. I will be posting projects over the next couple of days using two new sets of Scrappy Mom Stamps. Here are the new stamp sets.

Are they not just fabulous!!
For my 1st project I decided to use the "That's Entertainment" Stamp set. I am a HUGE movie buff so this set just made my day when I seen it!!! I used the sentiment "I'm late, I'm late for a very Important Date", and what are the odds that I had the sweet little bunny from Alice in Wonderland to go along with it. My little bunny came from the set called, Curiouser and Curiouser by Lettering Delights.
I just love how this card came out, this was and still is one of my favorite Disney Movies so I was really excited when I seen this sentiment.

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-15 :: Photo Inspiration

Happy Wednesday my sweet bloggy friends! Today has been a pretty mellow day for me, I had the day off, so me and my little peanut have just been hanging out. He is a sleep right now, so I figured I would get crafty while he were sleeping. I made a sweet little card for the current challenge going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps. Here is what I came up with.....
I used my PKSC-16 April 2013 SOMK to stamp these sweet images and sentiments. I then colored them in using my Spectrum Noirs. I added some Raspberry Pink bakers twine from Timeless twine with a cute little yellow button. Other items used were, coarse white glitter, AC glitter tape, DCWV solid cardstock, black gel pen and pattern paper by K&Co. I think it turned out pretty cute, what do you think!? This was the 1st time I was finally able to use this cute set. Here is the photo I used for inspiration.
I used I think all of the colors and I also used the flower in the pic as inspiration as well. I want to thank you all for stopping by and taking a peak!! Have a fantastic night everyone!!

Peachy Keen Challenge 13-14 :: Just Cards :: Siblings

Hello again for the 3rd time today, hope everyone's day has been going well. I had the day off today, to bad it's been really gloomy here and they are talking about possibly 8 more inches of snow (big sigh). I am here to show you a card I made for the Siblings card challenge going on over at Peachy Keen Stamps challenge blog. I made this card with my sister Cassie in mind, she is the tweedle to my dumb, hehe. You will understand once I meant by that once you see this card !!
I told you she's the tweedle to my dumb!! I used this Curious and Curiouser cut file set from Lettering Delights for these two little cuties. My face stamps I got from the PKSC-11 November 2012 SOMK. All my papers were misc. scraps that I pulled from my scrap bin. I went through all my scraps this past weekend and sorted them by colors and patterns, lol . If you know me, you know I am very OCD, plus I am truly trying to use my scraps before I keep cutting new paper. Anyways I hope you all enjoy this sweet little card, I hope my sister does too.
Thanks for stopping by!! If you would like to see my two other post from today head here:

FCCB:Challenge #155, Use the color yellow and a triangle

Hello to all my sweet bloggy friends, I hope everyone had a fantastic weekend!! Mine was very short lived had work stuff all weekend :( I guess I can't complain, I only have to work Monday & Tuesday then I get Wednesday off.
Well since it is Monday, that means it's time for another challenge over at FCCB. This weeks challenge is a color and shape challenge, the color being yellow and the shape a triangle. Here is what I came up.
Anyone who know me, knows I love bright cheerful cards. I decided to use the sweet little bird from the, Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I used my gypsy when cutting this little cutie out, so I could use the hide feature. I knew I wanted to use my Peachy Keen critter faces to stamp by birdies face. My sentiment comes from the Scrappy Mom stamp set, Charmed Life, this is one of my favorite sets. My banner was cut out using my metal dies from My Craft Spot. A majority of all the papers used are from AC, love this brand of paper. I hope you all enjoy my FUN & bright card. I hope you will all find time to join in on the fun, can't wait to see what you create.
