New Squigglefly challenge...

HI, there is a new challenge over at the SQUIGGLEFLY CHALLENGE BLOG this week....the challenge is a ONE LAYER CARD. I have used the image FIRECRACKERS by Sandra Caldwell. Isn't it just perfect for this time of the year!
The sentiment is from CDD-Celebrate Freedom stamp set. I inked it in black, red and blue-then went over it with a black marker pen to make the actual image stand out again.

A CUTIE BUG card to share with you....

Hi all, I real quick wanted to share a card I made last night with you all. There is a new challenge over on the FRESH BREWED DESIGNS Challenge Blog and it is Red, White and Blue. Luckily I have printed my image out on white paper, as the designer papers from Bo Bunny's Anthem Collection have more of a cream color to them. I have used FBD digi image: CUTIE BUG with SPARKLER from the CUTIE BUGS SECTION.

I used the CRAFTIN DESERT DIVA's stamp set CELEBRATE FREEDOM which was absolutely perfect for this card, and little image!! I also used a couple of skittles from DoubleClick Connections on my card.
Thanks for stopping by!

 For the new challenge on THE STAMPING BOUTIQUE go HERE.

Hello all!! Time for a new Challenge over at CARDZ TV!! This week, the 3-D Team has whipped up some fantastic Fathers Day inspiration for you, to get your MOJO going!! I decided to make a 3-D "Tool Box" for my daughter to give my hubby...

                                                              Here is the side view....
                                     (We will probably pack the drawers with a few candy bits...)

For my creation, I have used:
CARDZTV Stamp Set-YOU'RE THE MAN (Happy Fathers day-and Mr. Fix-It)

The Cutting Cafe's File: Dresser Box Template-Cutting File
I simply left off the top decoration, and added some crimping to some additional drawer covers, along with a strip on the bottom two drawers to make it look like the drawer pull.

Cricut Cartridges-Boys will be Boys (tools) and Elegant Edges(top sentiment box)

Hope you like it!! I hope you have some fun creating a 3-D project of your own, and make sure to enter it in the challenge at CARDZ TV!

Hi all-this week at THE CUTTING CAFE we are sharing the CARD IN A BOX SET and CARD IN A BOX EMBELLISHMENT SETS....I needed a graduation card, so it was perfect timing!

The graduates school colors were yellow and brown and they were the "Hornets". So, I got busy making my box yellow and brown, and added little hornets from the schools images.
The little yellow balloons are part of the CARD IN A BOX EMBELLISHMENTS SET.
The circles were made with my SU 1/2 circle punch and added randomly. The two hearts on the sides were my SU heart punch, which I just added brown strips to.

Make sure to check out all the DT Inspiration on the 7th over at THE CUTTING CAFE BLOG.
Have a great weekend! (ITS ALMOST HERE!)
