Peachy Keen Challenge

Hi Everyone,

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm joining in on the Peachy Keen Challenge Sketch.
Here is my card. Oh my goodness, I think it came out so cute. I had an idea when I saw the stamp set that Peachy Keen is giving for the prize, which is PK-281 Valentine Cupids. I have this set so I decided to use the cute mouse.

I stamped the darling mouse and cut him out. I cut off the wings, bow and tail. I colored him with Copics, added some accents with a white gel pen and put some glossy accents on his nose. I added a jute tail, a candy cane from the Very Merry Tags cartridge, which I cut out in red and white, layered the white one on top of the red one and added red marker just around the edges and red stickle stripes. The adorable hat is from the Winter Wonderland cartridge, I cut it out in red and added some Snow Writer from Peachy Keen and some Frosted Lace stickles.

The base of the card is Kraft cardstock from Paper Trey Ink and the patterned papers are from the Christmas Combo Printed Matstack from DCWV and the sentiment paper is from The Homemade Christmas stack from DCWV. I hope you like my card as much as I do ;)

Don't forget to check out all the beautiful creations from the Peachy Keen Designers.

Thanks for stopping by and as always, thank you for all the sweet comments.

Christmas Gift Card Holders

Hi To All My Crafty Bloggers,

This is Lisa from Lisa's Craft Room bringing you my design for this month. Thank you Sheila for giving me the honor. WOW, I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week already. I am definitely not ready for Christmas.

But, I did decide to create these gorgeous gift card holders. I don't know why the red looks orange :( must be either my lighting or my camera, sorry. Well, this adorable gift card holder is from Emma from My Creative Time.

This is what they look like all cut. Aren't these cardstocks so pretty? They are from DCWV, the Homemade Christmas Stack. I wish they were double sided. I didn't like the inside being white, so I die cut other patterned cardstocks and adhered them together. They are thicker, which is nice because they are extra sturdy. I also used the Stitched Oval Die, the Scallop and Stitched Circle Die, the Gift Card Sentiments stamp set, and the All Around Christmas stamp set, all from My Creative Time.

On the First one, I tied a bow with white Tulle, the second one, has a red bow tied, the third one has red and white twine with a bell, the fourth one has red, white and green curly ribbon tied and the fifth one has a gold twine type and I added letter beads to say HO HO HO.

These are the stitched circle and scallop dies cut.

I hope you liked my project today. I would like to wish you all a Wonderful, Healthy and Happy Thanksgiving.

Throwback Thursday

Hi my Blogger Friends,

Gee, it's been a while since I posted, I've been so busy. I'm so happy I have Friday off because of Veteran's Day. Thank you to all our troops for protecting our country.

Well, it's Throwback Thursday with Emma at My Creative Time. She is asking for us to make a child friendly project. I decided to use A Child's Year, I love this cartridge but I don't use it much, I think that will be changing. I used my Gypsy to weld the shape from the Elegant Edges cartridge to make it a card. The base is Kraft cardstock and the layer is Hawaiian Shores, both from Paper Trey Ink. I inked the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink, Tea Dye. The buttons are also from Paper Trey Ink and the twine is from the Twinery. The sentiment is from Emma's stamp set, Follow Your Dreams. I also did some doodling.

I think it came out cute. I've been visiting alot of blogs and have been trying to comment as much as I can. I am seeing some amazing talent. Thanks for stopping by, see you again soon.
