Easter Cross Cards

Hello all!  Here are the cards that I gave out to all the family for Easter.  I know, I am a day late, but I didn't want to spoil the surprise by posting these before they would have gotten them!
 This SVG file is from Pretty Paper Pretty Ribbons and it is called Easter Cross.  I think it looks like a gorgeous stained glass window!  All of those pieces are placed separately, which does take a bit of time, especially when making 10!  I popped up the cross on some foam tape for a little extra dimension.
 I kept the rest of the card simple, no sentiment on the front as I didn't want to detract from the beauty and reverence of the card front.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Happy Easter!

Happy Easter!  Today on the Trendy Twine blog my DT sisters and I have lots of Easter projects to inspire you.  Here is what I created.
I used Grape Fizz Trendy TwineLimeade Trendy Twine, and Tickled Pink Trendy Twine to wrap around plastic Easter eggs.  I started by hot gluing the two egg ends together with hot glue to make sure they wouldn't come apart.  I also used hot glue at the tip of the egg to secure the twine end, then I painted half of the egg with mod podge and wrapped the twine down to the center of the egg.  I flipped the egg over and repeated the process from the other end of the egg and then coated all of the twine with mod podge so it would stay secure.
The basket that I placed the eggs in is from SVG Attic's SDS Hop To It set.

Outdoor Birthday Card

Hello crafty friends!  I am back with yet another birthday card.  No surprise there!  I seem to be making them all the time!  This one is for my husband's grandpa.  
 The layout of this card follows DCWV's stackaholic card sketch for March.  The papers I used are from their new Luxe Lodge stack.  It is full of great outdoor prints and some of the papers have a metallic copper treatment on them.  I used Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine and the sentiment is from KaiserCraft.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Sweet Birthday Wishes Card

If you have been following my posts for the last month, you have seen me use DCWV's Confetti Stack A LOT.  I just can't help it!  This is my absolute favorite stack right now!  This card uses those papers and was for my niece's 4th birthday.
 I used the Hello Sweet stamp set from Pink and Main for the sentiment and a full bow of Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine.  That yummy cupcake is cut from SVG Cuts' Breezy Backyard Lever Cards kit.  I embellished it with heart brads, gold stickles and homemade enamel dots.  It is popped up on foam tape.  The confetti at the bottom of the card is part of the Confetti Stack!  It is in little pouches in the back of the stack :)
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

You're So Sweet Card

I just wanted to share these cards with you in this quick post.  I was so blessed to win last month's challenge at Pink & Main stamps!  I was able to get some wonderful stamps with my prize GC.  Here are two cards that I created using the Hello Sweet stamp set.
 I used papers that my friend Lisa sent me.  Thank you, Lisa!!  They are from a 6x6 Dear Lizzy Neapolitan paper pad.  I used some Lemon Tart Trendy Twine and homemade enamel dots for embellishments.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Leprechaun Hat

Happy St. Patrick's Day!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  I created this cute leprechaun hat to give to my boys.
I made the hat from SVG Attic's JGW Top O the Mornin set.  I used papers from DCWV's DIY Stack: Paper Plants.
I wrapped Twisted Lime Trendy Twine around the hat band and tied a bow to finish it all off.  It matched the papers I used perfectly!  Cute treat box complete!

Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:

Unity Blog Hop~Graduation Card

Welcome to the Unity Stamp Co. Growing In Unity blog hop!  I am so excited to be part of the hop today!  Here is the card that I created.
I love to craft ahead.  I hate procrastinating when I know that I will need cards for certain events.  This is one of those cards.  We always get invited to a few graduations and the Totally & Utterly Amazing KOM set has stamps perfect for the occasion.  Both the sentiment and hats stamps are in that kit.  I matted them with several layers of patterned paper and cardstock, added a bow of red crinkle ribbon and three sequins at the bottom.
I would love it if you would like my Facebook page, Beth's Beauties and/or follow my blog to stay updated on my creations!

Confetti Birthday Cards

Hello all!  Guess what?  I am back with more birthday cards!  I go through so many of these that I seem to be making a ton.
 All of these gorgeous cards were quickly made using papers from DCWV's Confetti stack.  That stack is a must have.  Seriously!  The sentiment panel and gold detailed vellum are parts of the stack too.
 I wrapped Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine around it, added the cupcake with a die cut small doily underneath, then glued some sequins on.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Easter Bonnet

Good morning!  It is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I am sharing a fun Spring hat that I created.  
I started by making the hat from Gaby's Garden.   Then around the brim, I added rose leaves from JGW Motherly Moments and swirls from SDS Flourished Spring.  I added roses in two different sizes from the Be Mine set on both sides of the hat.
Here is a view of the beautiful bow, which is part of the Gaby's Garden set.
On the right side, I added a butterfly, which was cut from the Welcome Spring set.  
The small dark coral flowers are from the JGW Tiki Luau kit and made the perfect finishing touch for the hat!  All the papers I used on this hat are from DCWV'S Dear Jane stack and it was displayed in their booth at CHA this year!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine~Best Wishes Bee Card

Hello friends!  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  This month we are showcasing projects that use Bumblebee Trendy Twine.
I created this card for my son who recently participated in his school spelling bee.  I gave it to him the morning of the bee as a good luck card.  I used the Bumble Bears file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  I added Bumblebee Trendy Twine on the tips of the antennae and as a bow on the bear.
I used more of the Bumblebee Trendy Twine and braided a section of it to use as a divider between the patterned paper and the embossed yellow paper.  I also wrapped some of it around the sentiment flag.
And how did my son do at the spelling bee, you may be wondering??  Well, he won 1st place!  


Here is what I used from Annie's Paper Boutique:
