Be Your Own Kind Of Wonderful

Another card from this month's Card Making Workshop.  First, we used the Quatrefoil Embossing Folder to emboss only a portion of the flower paper from the La Vie En Rose paper and then sanded it which I think is just beautiful!  Then using the Your Own Kind of Wonderful stamp set to do the sentiment and the butterflies which were colored by the Water Colors Paints.

Love and Roses Card

We made this card and my Card Making Workshop this month.  It was cut out using the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge.  Using the Ink Blot stamp set and White Daisy ink, we stamped on the Cotton Candy cardstock then glued it to the back side of the card front.  The "Love" cut out was mounted on top of the card and then it is finished off with Sparkles and Sequins.

You're EARresistible Card

I thought the Kaleidoscope papers would be perfect to go with the bunny stamp on the Operation Smile Animal Greetings stamp set.  A really quick and simple card.  This card will be available to make (free if you have made a donation to Operation Smile) at my Paper Buffet (click on the Sign-up Genius link to see my class schedule) while supplies last.

Snow Globe Ornament and Container

My second upline, Joanne Walton, came up with this fun idea.  She had found clear plastic ornaments I believe at Michaels and while I was visiting a few weeks ago, we each planned our own projects. 

Her idea was to use only half of the ornament and to create a snow globe ornament.  We realized that this ornament was the perfect size to top our Kraft Containers.  So when I designed my ornament and container I was thinking of putting hot chocolate packets into the container.

I used the White Pines papers and several of our Cricut Cartridges to create the design.

I wasn't sure how to attach the ornament to the container, what I ended up doing was layering some pieces of 3D Foam Tape and then added some Hook and Loop Dots for easy removal and reattachment to the container.  I love how it turned out!

Reindeer Candy Cane Giftie

How cute is this?  I was inspired by my 2nd Upline, Joanne Walton, who made a similar one for her downline who attended the Ontario, CA Workshops Your Way event.  I used a cut from the Artiste Cricut cartridge for the envelope and the "ears" (a leaf) and circles for the eyes and nose from the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge.  To finish it off I used a stamp from the Merry, Merry stamp set for the sentiment which I mounted on the candy cane "antlers."  I just love how it turned out!
