Trendy Twine ~ Patriotic Celebrate Card

Hello crafty friends!  I am sharing a simple patriotic card on the Trendy Twine blog today.
I started with embossing the white background layer with a stars with swirls embossing folder and die cutting it out with a stitched rectangle die. I made a banner using Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine and patriotic washi tapes.
I die cut the celebrate sentiment three times to match the layers of cardstock I used as the mat on the card front.  The finishing touch was APB Peppermint Icicle sequins that I adhered with Glue Dots stitch glue squares.

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

Victorine Originals Challenge #5 ~ Summer Vacation

Happy Friday and welcome to a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog!  It has a theme of Summer Vacation.  This is the card that I created for inspiration.
I started with the Victorine Originals Mt. Rushmore stamp and stamped it using Versafine Onyx Black ink and my stamp positioning tool.  I then cut layers of patterned paper out of DCWV's Cartographer stack using GMD stitched rectangle dies.
I added some burlap ribbons, punched arrows and a fussy cut sentiment from the Cartographer stack and two gold brads for embellishments.  P.S.  See that South Dakota silhouette in the large arrow?  Yup, I actually thought far enough ahead to plan that detail LOL!
So, now on to the details on how to play along with the challenge...
Head on over to the Victorine Originals blog and check out their challenge post. You have two weeks to enter your project/s that follow the above theme and/or color scheme. They do not have to use Victorine Originals stamps on them. We can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Mouse Shaker Card

Hello everyone!  Today is my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog.  I have this bright shaker card to share with you.
 I started by stamping the V.O. Mouse With Umbrella stamp (also part of the Mouse Set 1) with Versafine Onyx Black ink on watercolor paper.  I used Crayola Watercolor pencils and an aqua brush to color in the image.  I made it into a shaker card using GMD double pierced circle in and out dies, acetate, foam tape and sequins.
I used a GMD stitched rectangle die for the front panel.  The papers I used are from Doodlebug Design Fun In The Sun 6x6 pad.  The sentiment is from V.O. Floral and Sayings stamp set and I added some GMD Watermelon Colors enamel dots around it.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Emoji Fidget Spinner!

If you have kids, more than likely you will have heard about fidget spinners.  My boys have been asking to get one and I was leery at first, but they really are fun for the kids to play with!
Here is the emoji fidget spinner that we got from Oriental Trading.  It is totally a win-win since it has emojis on it.

My oldest son is 10 and he had the easiest time spinning it.  He really did a great job in a short amount of time playing with it.
My 7 year old and 4 year old have smaller hands and it wasn't quite as easy for them to spin in the air.  They could do it, but it would spin longer for them if they held it on the table.
And just so you know, both my husband and I have played with it too :)  They are fun!

I hope you have a wonderful day!

The review of this product is based strictly on my opinion. Others may have a different opinion or experience with the product above. I was provided the sample free of charge by Oriental Trading Co. and I provided my honest opinion. No other type of compensation was received for this review.

Sewing Framed Art

Hello all!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I really was excited to make this project!  It is a vinyl saying with paper and lace accents in a frame.
The vinyl saying comes from the JGW Just Sew set.  I cut it out in black vinyl with my Silhouette Cameo and layered it on the patterned papers I chose from DCWV's Royal Gypsy stack.
I added navy lace hem facing around the bottom and used the thimble and diamond quilt block files from JGW Parlor Patchwork as well as the scissors file from JGW Just Sew to the left corner.  The finishing touch was a threaded needle that I wove into the lace.  I then placed it all into a 8.5x11" frame.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Happy Father's Day!

Hello all!  Happy Father's Day to all the dads out there!  The Trendy Twine DT has lots of Father's Day inspiration for you on the Trendy Twine blog today.  This is the card I have to share with you.
I started out by stamping the large "Father Calligraphy" stamp and die cutting around it with a GMD stitched rectangle die.
The papers I used on this card are from DCWV's Luxe Lodge stack.  I die cut the front edge of the card with a GMD pine bough border die and wrapped Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine around that edge.  That color of Trendy Twine is one of my absolute favorites!  It is so versatile and perfect for masculine projects.

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

Victorine Originals Challenge #4 ~ 4th of July

Happy Friday!  Today is the start of a new challenge at the Victorine Originals blog with the theme of 4th of July.  Here is the card that I created for inspiration!
I started by stamping the VO Firework Explosion stamp with Versamark on white cardstock and embossed it with white embossing powder.  I then die cut it out with a GMD stitched rectangle die and inked around the edges with Black Soot Distress Ink.
I then took Distress Inks in Festive Berries, Antique Linen, and Salty Ocean and created color bursts on the separate fireworks.  I used a paper towel to wipe the excess ink off of the white embossing.
Here is a close up of the details of the stamped panel on the finished card.
I added a layer of red metallic paper from DCWV's Bright & Pastel foil stack.  It is die cut with a GMD scalloped stitched rectangle die.  I added a sentiment from Victorine Originals' All Occasion Set.  It was stamped with Versafine Onyx Black ink and I used my stamping tool to align it.  
The embellishments I used were Stars and Stripes Trendy Twine and Patriotic Sparkle Enamel Dots
So, now on to the details on how to play along with the challenge...

Love Has Wings Butterfly Card

Hello again, today is once again my day to post on the Victorine Originals blog!  Two weeks ago I shared THIS butterfly card with you, and today is another butterfly card, but with an entirely different feel to it!
I started with a piece of white cardstock and stamped and embossed the gorgeous butterfly wing from the V.O. Wings Stamp Set.  Then I watered down black and yellow acrylic paint to splatter it over the white cardstock.  After that I die cut it with a GMD Scalloped Stitched Rectangle die.  The patterned paper is from DCWV's Country Floral stack and I die cut that with a GMD stitched rectangle die and cut a slit partway across from the right side to show the wing stamp.
To dress up the rest of the front I added Bumblebee Trendy Twine and an unbranded tag die cut.  I stamped a sentiment from the Wings Stamp Set and added three matte finish yellow enamel dots.
Are you ready to see ALL the awesomeness of the stamp set I used?  Here it is!
Yes, it is a huge set and oh-so-beautiful.  It measures approximately 8x8".

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

S'mores Gift Set

Happy Monday!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I have a niece who turned 3 yesterday and she loves roasting marshmallows.  I thought the S'more gift box and adapted s'more card from JGW S'more Fun would be perfect for her!
This s'more card was adapted from the gift card holder card that is in the file.  I simply omitted the middle pieces that would hold the gift card.  I used solid color cardstock (mostly scraps!) for it and inked around the outside of most of the cuts with brown chalk ink.
I added a 3 to the heart because it is for a 3rd birthday.  The bow of Cherry Latte Trendy Twine and some white gel pen stitching were the finishing touches on this card.
The s'more gift box holds enough supplies for 7 s'mores!  I used papers from DCWV's Adventurer stack for it.  I assembled it using Scotch Tacky glue.
The campfire tag is part of the file too!  I added it to the box with a bow of Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Deer Family Birthday Card

Hello all, I am back with another creation using Gina Marie Designs dies!  This one is a very masculine card.  It is for a birthday, but could easily be adapted for Father's Day.
I used the GMD Deer Family die set and GMD stitched rectangle with papers from DCWV's Luxe Lodge stack to create the scene on this card.
The sentiment is from Victorine Originals' Butterfly stamp set and I used my Hampton Art stamp perfect tool and Versafine Onyx Black ink to stamp it.  Adhesives I used include ATG, tacky glue and staples.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!
