Sweet Baby Card

Hello all!  I created this card a while back because I wanted a neutral baby card.  So often I focus on baby cards for either boy or girl and forget that there are plenty of people who choose to not find out what they are having.
The papers are from DCWV's Animal Crackers stack and Jewel Toned Textured Cardstock stack.  The stamp was a gift from my crafty friend, Lisa, and it was stamped on a small oval scalloped shape from SVG Cuts (sized at 1.5" tall x 2.25" wide).  I embellished with In The Navy Trendy Twine and two coordinating buttons.  I used the curtain fold technique with the brown animal print.  You can see the tutorial for that HERE.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Winter Barn Birthday Card

Today I have a masculine birthday card to share with you.  I thought it was a perfect winter card to send to my brother-in-law.
The papers I used are DCWV's Luxe Lodge and 6x6" burlap stacks.  I used Cottage Cutz stitched circle dies for the image and mat.  The barn scene stamp is from Victorine Originals.  I added some Nuvo Crystal Drops in white to look like snow in the scene.  A wooden button with Chocolate Truffle Trendy Twine in the top right corner added to the rustic look of the card.
The tree paper mat was cut using a Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle die.  The Celebrate was cut twice using a Tim Holtz die.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Warm Wishes Card

Merry Christmas!  Today all of my Trendy Twine DT sisters and I have some Christmas inspiration on the Trendy Twine blog. Stop by there to see all of their projects!  Here is what I created.
This card features lots of Holly Berry Trendy Twine on the layers of the scalloped rectangle die cuts.  I used a holly svg from SVG Attic's Winter Flurries set as the focal point.  Red sequins from the Frosted Cranberry Sequins were perfect to use as the holly berries. 
I punched a tag using a Fiskars punch and stamped a sentiment from the APB Let It Snow stamp set on it.  A bow of Holly Berry Trendy Twine on the tag was the finishing touch.  All patterned papers are from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack.

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

Non-Traditional Colored Christmas Card

I love all things Christmas.  And usually I stick to the traditional Christmas colors with my creations, but sometimes I love to just break out of the norm and totally get creative with colors that aren't "normal" for this time of the year!
 This card features a triangle patchwork tree from the stocking file in SVG Attic's Patchwork Christmas set.  The papers and chipboard button at the top of the tree are from BoBunny's Candy Cane Lane collection.  I stamped a zig zag from the Bo Bunny In Stitches stamp set around the front paper panel.  The bow of Raspberry Cupcake Trendy Twine was the perfect tree topper.
 The banner was hand cut and I stamped the sentiment from APB Merry Christmas stamp set.
I hope you all have a very Blessed Christmas surrounded by family, friends and lots of good food :)

Pig Birthday Card

Hello all!  This card is definitely one of a kind :)  One of my husband's co-workers loves pigs and when it was her birthday, he asked if I could come up with a card for her.  This is what I came up with!
The patterned paper for the mats is from The Paper Studio's Kirby Teesdale Studio matstack.  I used two sets of Gina Marie Designs dies for the mats...stitched rectangles and scalloped stitched nested rectangles.  The pig is an SVG from Miss Kate Cuttables.  I added some glossy accents to the mud for a little extra visual interest.
I used Totally Chocolate Trendy Twine for a bow on the pig's ear and wrapped and tied a bow with Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine towards the bottom.  The sentiment stamp is from Mark's Finest Papers' Friends set.

Trendy Twine ~ Olaf Card

Do you want to build a snowman?  I do!  At least build one on a card ;)  Today is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog and I have this Olaf card to share with you.
As soon as I saw that sentiment on the APB Let It Snow stamp set, I knew I had to make a card with the Frozen theme using it!  And when I saw THIS Frozen paper stack, it was a match made in Heaven!
I used a trim of Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine between the two patterned papers and added a bow on the right side.  Three Peppermint Icicle Sequins were a great finishing touch!  The Olaf die cut was a free file from HERE.  I cut the black base out of cardstock and the colored layers were all from vinyl scraps because they cut intricate cuts perfectly.

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

Christmas Notecards

Hello all!  Today is my day to post on the SVG Attic blog.  I created these 3x3" notecards for placing on gifts.  
I made two each of 4 designs.  The wreath and ornament are from the All The Trimmings set.  I embellished the wreath with Candy Cane Trendy Twine and the ornament with a narrow gold ribbon.
The stocking is from the Cookies for Santa set and the gingerbread man is from Santa's Little Helpers.  These two were complete just by adding some small buttons with mini glue dots.
The scalloped circle was cut at 2.875" and is from the SDS Fun in the Sun set.  The white stitched circle is from a manual die.  The patterned papers are from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Mario and Luigi Birthday Cards

Hello all!  Today is my oldest son's 10th birthday.  How the heck have I been a mom for a decade already??  Time sure flies, doesn't it!  He loves all things Mario right now as does my second oldest, who's birthday is on the 17th.  December is BUSY in our household to say the least.
 I didn't want them to have the same card, so I made both Mario and Luigi.  I made svg files for these out of basic shapes.  They are the same except for the mustache and the letter on the hat, just change the hat color!
The nose is popped up with thin foam tape, but other than that, everything is glued down, so the card is fairly flat.  I sure hope they love them!
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Cupcake Shadowbox Cards

Hello all!  December is such a busy month for birthdays in our family!  We have 3 ladies that have birthdays this month and I went ahead and made all of their cards the same.  Sometimes we just need to do streamlined cardmaking to stay ahead of it!
 This file was from the Silhouette Store.  I jazzed it up by using the awesome papers from DCWV's Vintage Collector stack.  I have always LOVED that stack and was so happy to create with it again.
The different layers are popped up with foam tape to create a lot of dimension.  I could have popped up more layers, but I still wanted it to be okay to mail.  The only embellishments I added were a rhinestone for the cherry and a bow of Chocolate Cupcake Trendy Twine.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

DCWV Winter Snow Globe Display

Hello all! Beth from the DCWV Social Media Design Team here.  Christmas is such a beautiful time of the year and I love to decorate for it!  Today I am sharing a snow globe that I created using the Light-Up Terrariums stack.
 I started with the hexagon terrarium (it uses both pages from the stack with hexagon shapes on it), folded all the score lines and added red line tape to the tabs.
 Then I took a large and small tree as well as the doe and fawn from the Holiday Village stack and hot glued them to the base.  I wrapped one of the strands of lights included in the Light-Up Terrariums stack around the base and trees and finished it off with some fake snow inside.  After that is when I adhered the top to the bottom.
 To make the snow globe base, I enlarged a file from Snapdragon Snippets or SVG Attic to fit the hexagon terrarium and used papers from the Gilded paper stack and Cranberry Christmas to cut with my Cameo machine.  The finishing touch was a bow of May Arts ribbon.
 I also added two of the small terrariums to my display.
The best part about these is that they can stay up even after Christmas is over since they fit in the "winter" category.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Quick Christmas Cards...Take 3

Happy Sunday to all of you!  I am back with my fnal installment of quick Christmas cards.  You can find my first post HERE and my second one HERE.  I just love how quick these were and I still feel like they turned out very nice.
The papers from DCWV's Christmas Plaid stack are what made these so easy to create!  Those sentiment panels were all included in that stack.
I used various dies from Gina Marie Designs' Stitched Rectangles and Scalloped Stitched Nested Rectangles to create the layers. (If you haven't checked out her dies yet, you really need to! They are super reasonable!!)
I accented the cards with Nuvo Crystal Drops, Rhinestones, and Candy Cane and Holly Berry Trendy Twines.
The panels with the words on are popped up with thin foam tape.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Trendy Twine ~ Peace & Joy Muslin Bag

Good morning!  It is my day to post on the Trendy Twine blog.  This month, we are featuring the 4"x6" Cotton Muslin Bags and Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.
The 4"x6" Cotton Muslin Bags was a great blank canvas for me to create with.  I stamped small stars and a sentiment on it from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set.  I glued a variety of sequins from the Frosted Cranberry Sequins into the center of the stamped stars.
I used a Blue Tag-It as a topper on the bag.  The Christmas Blessings sentiment is from the APB Merry Christmas stamp set and the To: From: is from the APB Merry & Bright stamp set.  A large red button and a tie of Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine finished off the top.
The focal point of the bag, however, is the star that I stitched on it using Frosted Cranberry Trendy Twine.

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