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!

Going Wild with Washi Tape

Hi everyone!

I'm Christina, from the Crafty Card Gallery Design Team. This months challenge was to create a card using a new technique. I decided to use Washi Tape with layers of gesso and acrylic paint on top. The beauty of this technique is - you can still see some of the tape after adding the mediums. I also switched it up a bit, and used burlap as my foundation.

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to leave a comment.

#1 Dad Easel Card

Hi everyone! It's me, Tonya and this month we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12x12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3"x6" cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and error…I tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6"x6" cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6"x11" with folds at 4", 4",1",1",1" from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.

I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card. 

Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father's day card finished and need to create one more. :-)

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! :-)
