Kissing Fish Valentine Card

This card was made using the Kissing Fish file.

I used DCWV water paper.  Sandpaper was used for 
the ocean floor.  I did Print and Cut in SCAL for the bubbles.
All other paper was from Recollections.

The inside of the card reads, 
"You were the best catch.
Happy Valentine's Day".

Love the Jayhawks

I made this Kansas University Snowman set from the
Joy, Peace, Love file from Scrappydew

 I cut chipboard 4x6.5, then covered it with red Recollections cardstock.  Then I cut
the Jayhawk background (3.5x 6) out of Collegiate Paper. 
Using my Cinch, I punched holes on the long ends at 3/4 of an inch.
The snowmen bodies were cut from Coredinations white texture cardstock.  
All of the other pieces were cut from Recollections.
I cut small pieces of fleece for the scarves and popped them out.
                                                   I used jump rings to bind them all together.

Snow Globe Card

Snow Globe Shaker Card
File from Scrappydew 

For the globe and snowman,  I used Recollection cardstock in silver, light blues,
black and brown.  Georgia Pacific white cardstock was used for the snowman.I embossed the background of the globe with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.  The background of the card is Stampin Up! confetti and was embossed with Sizzix Snowflakes embossing folder.  I used a light blue ink to highlight the snowflakes. For the outside dome, using SCAL, I used the background of the dome then centered the snow background and joined them, which created the "outline" of the dome.  I cut 3 pieces of chipboard and lined those up and glued them to give some depth. I glued the acetate between the chipboard and outline dome.  I put some white seed beads in and glued it all together.

Back from vacation!!

We were on vacation for the last week.  We had a great time, but I sure missed
my craft room and my cutters!  I was able to do some designing so that when
we got home I could cut, cut, cut!

 So here is what I came up with. 

I used a 16 x 20 piece of sheet metal then spray painted it with Valspar Satin Enchanted.
Using the Christmas House file from Scrappydew, I cut everything out of vinyl and layered it. 
My intentions were to make one for each of my kids!  HOWEVER, I am keeping this one for ME!

Fireplace and stockings

This card was made using the fireplace and stockings from the Santa's Presents file.

I used DCWV hunter green cardstock for the back.  The Christmas paper
is Colorblok Christmas Script, the mantle, stockings and fireplace insert was
cut from The Paper Studio, and the fireplace is Brick from Bazzill.
I used my Silver Bullet to cut all pieces.
For the fireplace, I dabbed Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink onto the Tim Holtz brick embossing folder by Sizzix and rand the Bazzill paper through. I scored random lines on the mantle and used the
Vintage Photo Ranger Distress Ink to highlight the lines.

Hip Hip Hooray!!

I know a special little girl who will be 2 very soon!  Hard to believe she will be 2!!  Where does the time go?
I used the Cupcake Hippo from  Using Icicle Stickles to add some sparklies to the cupcake and ran the bottom through my paper crimper. 

Just Hanging Out

Just a fun little Halloween card!

I used Co'ordinations smooth cardstock for the orange, 
black, purple, and gray, and Georgia Pacific white cardstock.
I made a wobbly spring for the spider and tied him onto his web 
with a piece of thread.

Scrappy Scarecrow

I made this scarecrow using Scrappy's Scarecrow.  The crow is from Scrappy's Fall Crows.  
You can find the files here.  Rob has TONS of great files!

Using my Silver Bullet and a 30 degree fabric blade, I cut the hat, shirt, and overalls out of
some scraps of fabric I had on hand.  
The body, shoes, and crow were made from Recollections paper.
The leaves were leftover from another project.
I purchased the hay bale from Hobby Lobby.
I used raffia, purchased at Hobby Lobby, for the straw hair and at the arms.
The raffia was a little too thick for my liking, so I used a long needle to separate the strands.
