Merry & Bright

Happy Friday!

Today is a new 3D challenge over at Cardz TV.  

The DT challenge is to create a 3D Christmas gift box or bag.

I used this cutting file to create my pretty present.  The papers are from a Teresa Collins paper collection. 

I used Cardz TV stamp sets, Big Holiday Wishes & Naughty or Nice, for the tag.  I stamped the sentiment in Versamark and heat embossing with gold embossing powder.  The snowflakes were also stamped in Versamark for a tone-on-tone look.

Happy Thursday.

It's my day over on Miss Kate Cuttables' blog

It's almost Christmas...which means a new year..a new beginning...time for resolutions to make the coming year something great.  

That was the inspiration for my card....

Don't you just LOVE it?!?!?!  Eek!  I am so excited over how well it turned out. 

I used Cricut Design Space to create the focal image with Miss Kate's files, New Year Numbers & Happy New Year Title.  

I was able to flatten out the grouping of items that I selected to be able to print them.  I printed it on a laser printer and ran the panel through a laminator with gold Ranger foil paper.  

I cut the panel with a MFT's Jumbo Fishtail Banner die and trimmed out a layer from MFT Gold Shine Foil cardstock.  I used Versamark and MFT's Diagonal Stripes Stencil to gold emboss the card base.  The front panel was adhered with foam tape, and embellished with Pretty Pink Posh gold sequins.

Warm Hugs with MFT

Happy Wednesday!

We had a dusting of snow this morning...which makes me want to craft and drink coffee all day long.  Too bad I have to clean and feed the kids.  *laughing*

Before we head out for errands, I wanted to share a card for the current MFT color challenge.  

The colors of the challenge inspired my water colored panel.  I used MFT dye inks and my Ranger craft mat to create a watercolor piece.  


I used a set of MFT dies for the mittens and hat.  They were white heat embossed with MFT's Diamonds & Dots Borders stamp.  The balls were highlighted with Ice Stickles.  A few sparkling clear Pretty Pink Posh sequins rounded out the card.
