Happy Retirement Card

Hi Crafty Card Gallery followers!
Thia here from Blue Moon Creation with a card I created to share with YOU!

This card was created using duct tape. I wrapped tape in a zig zag pattern and then inked it with a variety of colors (tear drop ink pads). Then stamped it onto white Neenah cardstock. Pretty neat, right?
I used some twine and created a flower from scraps that I had laying around.
For the face of the flower, I used a mini bottle cap and some Spiced Sunshine Stamps.
The sentiment is from Peachy Keen Stamps Hillbilly Holler Set 3, which I believe is currently on sale.
So...I'm sure you all are wondering if my nails are really multi colored right now, since the color of our nails is this month's inspiration for creating a card. They aren't. I don't wear nail polish these days. So, I decided to get colorful, since my nails are lacking in color!
Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you over at my blogs too!

I'm so cool I sweat Glitter ~ Sue B

Happy day all!

Sue B here to share my take on this month's challenge. I have to say that it is good to be back. This month the challenge was if you have nail polish on your fingers or toes - do a card with that color in it... If you don't have any on now - use Blue, Pink (my current color) or something with sparkles in it..... on your card... Well, since I don't have nail polish on I went with option B but used Blue, Pink and Sparkles! I recently attended the Scrapbook Expo in Somerset, NJ and purchased my supplies just for this project. Here is my card:

Let me tell you that this was so easy! Krazy Kreations was at the Expo showing how to make your own glitter paper and how to color on it. Well I was a chicken and bought the glitter paper and the Outline Stickers (these are by Elizabeth Designs). I mounted the outline stickers on the white glitter paper, got out my markers and went to down. I like my little blue bird of happiness. As soon as I took this picture, I filled out the card for the parents of my son's girlfriend. They are so kind to our son, I wanted them to know we appreciate it. 

Thanks to Jenn at Crafty Card GalleryKrazy Kreations and Elizabeth Designs for the inspiration and tools to make this card. Until next time.....

What the World Needs is a Group Hug

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for this month is blue and tan and this is my take on this month's challenge. 

With all the craziness that has been going in the world I just wished that we could all get along and I thought this sentiment was perfect to convey what I wanted to get across. 
The base of the card is from K & Company's Julianne card making pad. I love the fact that the base and the rubber stamp I used from 7 Gypsies are a perfect complement to each other. I used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper to frame the hearts which I cutout from the Sizzix Hearts and Brackets diecut. I free handed a banner for the sentiment and adhered all together.

A very quick and simple card! If you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:

K & Company: Julianne Cardmaking Pad
Robin's Nest: Dew Drops
Sizzix: Heart and Bracket Diecut
7 Gypsies: Collections from the Journey Stamp Set
StazOn Ink

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!

When Your Giddy Up has Got Up and Left

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and I'm here to share a card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. This months theme is animals and this is what I came up with.
I used a pre-cut card base from K & Company's Julianne collection. I love the fact its cut to size and all you have to do fold. I stamped the Da Vinci Horse from Stampendous! onto a piece of Vanilla Fleur Glitter Cardstock  and adhered to the top of the card base  Next I cut out the "Old Dan" horse which is a free printable from Eclectic Anthology. I roughed up the edges of the printable, added part of an old zipper along the bottom of the printable and glued to the base. I printed the sentiments from the computer, cut out my own banner, used an oval distressed metal pick to adhere both sentiments to the card. I used Dew Drops to finish up my card.

I think this is a fairly easy card to do if I do say so myself. :-)

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Wednesday is awesome and enjoy creating!!!

June post - a new technique - Happy Father's Day

Welcome!  This month's theme was to do a new technique... so I tried something new..
I had seen some cute fathers day stamps from Jaded Blossom and wanted to order them.... so in looking at their stuff I found this cute remote from for a remote control to cut with my Cameo.
I bought the stamp set & the cut shape & proceeded to do for fathers day.

Here's the end result:

So this was a new technique for me - buying an SVG file and cutting it with my Cameo.  Also making the candy wrappers was new...

It did take me a little bit to figure out how to get it to size right, and I did have some issues with my Cameo (realized I had too much paper jammed into the blade housing so I had to clean my blade to get it to work properly again).

I realize I need to get some better adhesive as they came un-stuck and had to re-stick them all.  I also made all of the remote buttons with pop dots - so that was very time intensive - but I love how it turned out & my dad thought it was great.... so I say it's a win (plus I ate most of the leftover candy :))

Happy Father's Day dad!  Thanks for being so great!
