Football Birthday Card

Hello Crafty Friends, boy was this hard for me!!!  I don't know why simple and clean cards are sooooo hard for me to make oh and masculine one at that.  This Card is for our Teenage Grandson so it really needed to stay simple and masculine for him.  It took me all morning but I achieved it... finally lol

I knew I wanted it to be a football card of some sort because this is his first year in Football and he is so dang good that he got chosen to move up to the Varsity team at the near end of the season (he is a Freshman) So Huge accomplishment that he has worked hard for.  So as you see it had to be a football Card!

The Background was a free Digi-image I found online that I just sized to fit my white A2 card as the smaller layer.  The Football is from Cricut Wrap it Up Cartridge.  Page 70 of the handbook.  and I ran it through my Tiny Bubbles folder on my cuttlebug to emboss before adding the white layers to the ball.  The sentiment is a Vellum piece that came just in time.  As I was making this card the doorbell rang and it was my latest Black Friday order from HSN.  The kit is called Hot Off the Press Complete Vellum Collection.  Wow, Love Love Love this kit!  Anyway as soon as I saw this this Happy Birthday Vellum sentiment in Red with hints of blue in the background I knew it would be perfect!  Our Grandson's Football Team colors are Red & Blue.  so I cut out the sentiment flag from the velum sheet and then  cut a larger flag shape from Kraft card stock to make a shadow behind it.  I added a blue Brad on either side of the sentiment and Voila. 
For the inside I cut a piece of green cardstock as a mat for the smaller white layer that I inked the edges in Tim Holtz Walnut Stain.  I cut a strip of the stripe vellum that matched the background sentiment flag on the front of the card.  I stamped 2 sentiment stamps from different companies to get it to say what I wanted....
Hustle, Hit, NEVER quit!  is from Scrappy Moms set called Game Day
Happy Birthday Stamp is from Craftin Desert Diva's set called Happy Celebrations
Both are stamped in the Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress Ink

I will be entering into these fun challenges:

Vellum Oval Roses Card

Oh My Gosh, let me start off by telling you how much I love this new HOTP Vellum Kit I just got from HSN. Wow wow wow!!!  So I Created this Birthday card for my Sister/Mom (She Raised me when my Parents Passed) and I love the outcome!
I used a Blue Cardstock for the Background Layer on my White card base.  I then added a layer of pattern paper from Colorbok Rosewood Stack and inked the edges in blue.  The entire center focal consists of 3 pieces. The Beautiful colorful Vellum Layer which I cut out and then backed it with a white cardstock layer to make it pop more cut to the same frame shape.  I then added the beautiful Black Coordinating Dazzle onto the oval and Rose and WOWZERS!!!  I am in love with this focal, can you tell?  hahaha  To Finish off the front I simply Stamped The Birthday wishes Sentiment stamp from a set in my stash I believe was from Cardmaker... anyhow I stamped it in versamark and heat embossed with Zing Black glitter embossing powder. 
For the inside I used more from the same pattern paper sheet and stamped the sentiment and also the pretty rose in the bottom left corner in Memento Black tuxedo ink from the HOTP stamp set - Artful Affirmations.  I hope she loves this card as much as I do.  <3 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by today to visit my blog and see what I am up to in my Crafty Cave.  Wishing you all a beautiful and Crafty Day!

Purple Snowman Tags

More tags I created using the Cricut Very Merry Tags & Just Because Cards Cartridges along with my Frosty Forms Die Cuts
For the base I used a tag cut from Cricut Very Merry Tags cut from Recollections light purple Cardstock.  The pattern paper layers are from my scraps that I cut down to fit and used my WRMK corner chomper to round the top corners.  the bottom Scallop came from Cricut Just Because Cards... Perfect for my sentiment from my brand new HOTP Christmas Collection set  stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  The cute little Snowman is from Spellbinders Frosty Forms die set cut from White Card Stock.  The bow is cut from some purple pattern paper along with the little over sized hat I cut from SCAL2.  I used Purple Glitter glue to enhance the hat.  I embossed Snowman and inked with blue ink.  I also put some purple sequins from my stash at the bottom on either side of the sentiment and added a drop of Purple Glitter Glue to cover the hole on each.  I ran a  sheer Light purple ribbon through the top for hanging it on a gift.

Birthday star card

I made this card for one of my Brothers and didn't want to fight myself to keep with the simple and masculine theme, as I always like to go over the top!!!  So I created this card with a fun Cardmaker's Instant Card Art kit from HOTP called Jewel Colors.  It is filled with fun Ready made die-cuts.  was fun to figure out which papers to choose from my stash and just put this card together quick and easy :)
I used a white 5.25 X 6.50 card base, I added a layer of Dark Blue Cardstock and then a layer of Pattern paper that I picked up from Paper Wishes a while back.  I then added my Die-cut elements from the kit, but first I inked the edges of each piece with a dark Blue Ink.  I took the border strip from the kit and adhered it to the Birthday sentiment tag.  I then added a Light blue brad and metal flag to each side of the sentiment tag from my stash.  I decided to go ahead and add a larger brad of the same color to the top of the sentiment tag.  I then glued the 3 stars onto the bottom area of the card. 

For the inside I cut strips of the same papers I chose for the front of the card, inked the edges in blue and added some more die-cut elements from the kit.  I have two more December Birthday cards to create for 2 of my other Brother's this month.  I better search thru my other kits as I really struggle with simple masculine cards for some reason!  Oh and the fact I have 9 Brothers, you would think I could do these with ease by now!!!

I love tags and these were so fun to make.  I wanted to use up some of my recent scraps so these tags were born lol.
For the base I used a tag cut from Cricut Very Merry Tags cut from Recollections Red Cardstock.  the pattern paper layers are from my scraps that I cut down to fit and used my WRMK corner chomper to round the top corners.  the bottom Scallop came from Cricut Just Because Cards... Perfect for my sentiment from JustRite stamp set - Noel Christmas Ornaments set  stamped in Brown Stampabilities pigment ink.  The Beautiful Reindeer is from Spellbinders Frosty Forms die set cut from Kraft Card Stock.  the bow is cut from the same red recollections cardstock as the tag.  I embossed Deer and inked with brown ink.  I added some Red stickles to his nose.  I also put some red sequins from my stash at the bottom on either side of the sentiment and added a drop of red stickles to cover the hole on each.  I ran a red Grosgrain ribbon through the top and tied a red & white Twine bow around the base.  I also used Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink to ink the edges of my pieces.

Merry Christmas Vintage Truck Card

Hello to all of my Crafty Friends Stopping by to see my project today.
I must tell you I scrap lifted this card from Mary over at Cardz TV.  Oh my gosh as soon as I saw hers I fell in love.  Of course my card has different papers and a couple other small changes but for the most part it is very close to the one she made and shared in her video.  I love Mary's Cards so much and her videos are always great too.  You can find her video that inspired this card by clicking HERE
 
Items I used:
Red Recollections Card stock for Card Base - top fold 4.25" X 5.5"
My Christmas Papers are from Authentique Believe collection including Green for Tree which is cut from Cricut - Winter Frolic
The green dotted paper is a scrap from my stash
Red Truck Cricut - Just Because Cards is also cut from Red Recollections card stock
The silver accents I wanted to look like chrome and are cut from this foil sheets pack I picked up at DT (Dollar Tree) Boy I need to go get some more of that :)
I also cut a second door Handle from silver foil to use for the back bumper piece, in the video Mary colored that on along with the headlight she added.  I also cut an extra small circle (tire rims) but out of Grey like the window and cut it in half to use for the front headlight.  I went over it with a silver Cricut marker to give it some shine.
There was a tiny sliver piece that I didn't see Mary use, I added it to the front edge of the window to give another chrome accent... not sure if it was supposed to go there but I liked how it looked lol. 
I cut the wooden rail out of Recollections Kraft card stock.
I popped up the 2 fenders on foam tape.
I drew the door on like Mary did and also around lots of my cut pieces to accent them better using my Spectrum Noir - EB2
Merry Christmas stamp is from Desert Craftin Diva's - Happy Celebration Set & is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
On the Inside I used some of the same papers to accent the top of my white sentiment mat
plus I cut another tree Cricut - Winter Frolic at 1 1/2" this time
I also inked the edges of all my pieces with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink
Sentiment Stamp is from Crafters Companion - Sheena Douglass Christmas stamp set
& is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink.
I also made an envelope to match!  Using an envelope cut from Just Because Cards (Page 68) and sizing it to fit an A2 card... I do this on the computer (Dimensions 10" X 7.25") so not sure it would work from the cartridge cut on Cricut expression or lower.  I also trimmed off the flap cut in a matching pattern paper to add more cuteness to the envelope by just attaching to the flap only.

Happy Fall Owl Mesh Wreath

Finally I finished my Fall Mesh wreath for Thanksgiving.  Just in time to take it down in a couple of days to get ready for Christmas decor lol.

I found the wreath frame at DT about a month ago.  I found the wide multi colored mesh at WAl-Mart.  I really liked the pretty colors from Orange and yellow that flowed into purple and pink.  I found the very pretty shiny orange mesh on clearance at Michaels the following week... I put all of that together with pipe cleaners and left them sticking out all over the entire wreath waiting until I could find some pretty wired fall ribbon.  That was not so easy on our small town as everything fall got pushed out of our local stores to make room for Christmas.  Ugh I was so frustrated.  So my Hubby and I had an eye appointment last week out of town and I thought ok perfect I will go find some pretty fall wired ribbon to finish up when we are done.... Nope, that didn't work out too well because  I had not p,annex on getting my eyes dial acted and not being able to see afterwards lol.... Oh well!  So I had no choice .... I went and searched my stash in hopes of finding something to work.  I ended up finding some spools of burlap wired ribbon ... One in green and the other in pink... So that is what it got lol
For the center part I found the cute Fall leaf chalkboard on clearance while in search of my fall ribbon, lol. I  thought the reddish purple glitter would match well with the colors in the wide mesh.  I decided to color up the cute Fall Owl Digi-stamp from Desert Crafting Diva's with my spectrum noir markers.  I cut it out with my ScanNCut 2 before I colored it in.  I wanted to have it say Happy so I went to my Cricut and did the word Happy and then added to more shadow layers to go behind and mesh with the way Fall is matted with colors.  I wasn't that happy with the letters I cut to go on top for the word happy... Ugh the more I looked at it the more I said no way in my mind.  So I decided to go around the letters with coordinating puffy paint... Ugh FAIL!  So I decided to dig out some fall chipboard letters and added those to the fall mats instead.  I may add some things to it next year when I can find fall stuff again but for this year (a Couple of days... Lol)  it will work.

Fall Acorn card

Another Fall card, this one is for my Awesome Hubby!
I used Kraft card stock for the front layer adhered to a 110 lb. white card stock card base for a 4.25 by 5.5 portrait card.  The top layer of orange I ran through my Cuttlebug to emboss with the Darice Fall leaves swirl folder... Love that folder for fall!  At the bottom I used some fall plaid pattern paper from my stash.  The center strip is a Green burlap wired ribbon.  The acorn with leaf is cut from Cricut Autumn Celebrations cartridge.  I embossed the top acorn cap with CB simply squared folder.  The sentiment is computer generated.  I added a bow of Rafia around the stem and I die cut the 3 brown swirls from my new Spellbinders set - Jewel Treasures.
For the inside I used some paper scraps from the front and cut 3 more brown swirls to embellish.  The Happy Thanksgiving sentiment is stamped from Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations stamp set.  The bottom acorn leaf swirl is from a stamp set in my stash that I got in a cardmaker kit years ago, sorry I don't know the name.

For the Envelope I used my WRMK 123 Punch Board and some Fall Pumpkin Pattern Paper.

Snow Man Shaker Fuse card

I love snowmen... I am not a big fan of the snow in real life lol, but Snowmen are my favorite Christmas d├ęcor!!!  I fell in love with this simple Fuse Tool shaker card.  I added a stamped sentiment "Merry Christmas" from Craftin Desert Diva's (CDD) from their Happy Celebrations set which can be found by clicking here.  This is such a fabulous stamp set to have for card making through out the seasons and card giving occasions!

I didn't stamp it too straight unfortunately but oh well still love this card.  This one I adhered to a green stripe card stock and love the way it turned out making the edges look... so cute!  Reminds me of how the old postcards were.  I also added some dew drops on either side of the Merry Christmas Sentiment.

I wanted to point out that I cut down the shaker cards.....  they originally come as a trifold card but I like to cut apart all three panels so my kit stretches further.  I just use it as a card front on a regular card stock base.  The material is like a soft plastic and very flimsy... so for me not only does it need the card stock base to firm it up... but I get three card fronts out of one card!!!  Or I can use the extra fronts to cut shapes out of to add more fuse-able pieces to my other card fronts.

Here are both of the shaker cards I made with the red snowman fronts adhered onto Green Stripe Card stock bases.  The second card I used Green Brads instead of the dew drops.  There are 6 shaker card fronts in this kit... 2 each of 3 designs.  Plus 6 more regular cards, once I cut them in Half I can double it!!!  I hope you enjoyed all of my Shaker cards from this fuse kit over the last several days.  I used up all of the shaker fronts but I will be making more fuse cards soon with what is left in my Holiday kit.  I am sure I may even turn some of them into my own shaker designs!!!

Fuse Christmas Tree Shaker card

Another fun Christmas Shaker card made with the Fuse.  This time it is an adorable Tree shaped Shaker.  It is so fun and easy to put these cards together.


I love my Fuse Tool by We R Memory Keepers.  I bought the full kit during the summer with the purple fuse tool from HSN and had fun playing with all of the goodies I got.  Recently, because I chose Auto ship when I ordered... I received the Holiday fuse kit.

Fall owl center step card

Here is another fun center step card I made using another adorable Digi-stamp from Craftin Desert Diva's (CDD).  Oh my gosh this owl is so cute and was so fun to color with my Spectrum Noir pens.

The Count your Blessing stamp (Hey Pumpkin Set) is also from CDD as well as the sequins. The background behind the owl is done with Wild honey distress ink painted on as a water coloring... I mixed a little walnut stain to add the dimension... Just a little bit though.   The bottom flourish is from Spellbinders (Shapeabilities Die D-Lites - Flourish Trim)  as well as the flourishes on each side panel (spellbinders metal tags and accents).  At the bottom the small leaves are cut and embossed from a  Spellbinders die ( Jewel Flowers and Flourishes Shapeabilities) and then I rubbed the raised embossed veins with a very light blue ink.   I also added 4 orange buttons from my stash. For the side panels, I wanted something to go over the flourishes besides the sequins that I added to each swirl so I decided on a Cricut leaf cut from A Child's Year cartridge.  On the top layer I cut from a fun fall paper with tiny leaves on it.  I used my brown Cricut marker to draw out the veins and the outline of the leaf... I really like how it turned out.  I also cut a blackout layer a little bit larger in Brown to layer it onto.  The papers used for the two side panels and the bottom strip plus all three flourish cuts and the leaves were all cut from my Fall Paper Scraps stash.... I love being able to utilize my scraps for new cards!!!  I think that is about it for this one.... Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to in my little crafty cave.

Holiday Ornament Shaker Fuse card

I love my Fuse Tool by We R Memory Keepers.  I bought the full kit during the summer with the purple fuse tool from HSN and had fun playing with all of the goodies I got.  Recently, because I chose Auto ship when I ordered... I received the Holiday fuse kit. 
 


I am in love with the whole dang kit!!!  so I decided to make some Shaker cards for Christmas out of some of the fun designs included. 
I wanted to point out that I cut down the shaker cards, they originally come as a trifold card but I like to cut apart all three panels so my kit stretches further.  I just use it as a card front on a regular card stock base.  The material is like a soft plastic and flimsy...  so for me not only does it need the card stock base to firm it up... but I get three card fronts out of one card!!!  Or I can use the extra fronts to cut shapes out of to add more fuse-able pieces to my other card fronts.  For this card, as you can see the brown card front in photo above is just plain, so aside from the fuse-able bauble ornaments and words I fused on... I also added a few large snowflake sequins adhered with glossy accents and lots of dots with my white gel pen to look like snow.
Here are both of the shaker cards I made with the brown fronts adhered onto red Card stock bases.  There are 6 shaker card fronts in this kit... 2 each of 3 designs.  I will be back soon to share more of the others with you.  I also must say... I love the sequins they added with this kit!  So shiny and bright plus the cute little silver snowflakes are a great added touch for my Christmas cards.  I am so very Happy with these shaker cards and the Fuse tool is so fun to play with.  Thanks for stopping by to look at my work.

Happy Hedgehog Fall Center step card

I had so much fun creating this card.  The adorable hedgehog is a free Digi-Stamp right now over at Craftin Desert Divas (CDD) plus they have many other cute ones to choose from at a low price. 

I am getting better with my Spectrum Noir Pens I think.  I didn't have a bright yellow marker for the sunflower in her hair so I used one of my sharpies in a large colorful set I picked up at wally-world.  I also used distress ink (Wild Honey) to color the orange background behind her, I masked the image for this technique.  The Happy Fall Y'all stamp is from CDD Hey Pumpkin Set (click here to find this set).  The Label is from Cricut Wrap it Up Cartridge which I added 2 small orange brads to.  The Sunflowers are just dimensional stickers.  The leaves with acorns and the banner pole (not sure what to call it, lol) are cut with metal dies.  I also added some sequins from my stash then added a pearl to the center of each with fabric puff paint.  The tiny sequins are from CDD, Corn Maze (Sequins found Here).

Oh and the card base itself is a wide center step card I created myself, I love this card style.  Thanks for stopping by to take a look at my project.  I hope you all have a wonderful and crafty day!

Unbe-leaf-able Fall Card

Hello crafty friends.  I think I am finally getting back in a fun creative groove.  Today I made this Fall Leaf card.  I used items from 3 different companies that I love.  The "Lattice Flourish" edge'able is new from Consumer Crafts... I hand cut the center pattern paper to add to the fall look I wanted.  The "Flourish Leaves" are an svg file from Little Scraps of Heaven which I added a larger backing layer for each leaf.  And last but of course not least my favorite stamp company Craftin Desert Diva's is where you can find that Unbe-leaf-able stamp..."Hey Pumpkin" stamp set.  I just made it curve the way I wanted as I stuck it to the stamping block... I love the way it turned out.  I also used some tiny flat yellow sequins, also from CDD called "Corn Maze".  I then added a dot of orange puffy paint to each sequin and also in groups of 3 on the other 2 leaves.

The stamps on the inside are also from Craftin Desert Diva's "Hey Pumpkin" stamp set. The bear is stamped with Wild Honey distress ink and the others (Sentiments inside and out) are stamped with memento black tuxedo ink.  Also on the inside I used the pattern pieces I cut off from the front and backed them with pieces of brown card stock I cut with my new ScanNcut2... if I haven't told you before... I Love this Machine!!!.

Christmas Owl-idays Card

Trying to get my crafty mojo back this week.  I decided to make a Christmas card using some Craftin Desert Diva's Stamps and some of my other new products (& a few old products too).

I made this an A-2 sized top folding card with ivory card stock.  The plain green and pattern green papers are from a 6x6 Authentique stack I picked up at the scrapbook expo that I went to with my good friend Cheryl Scrappinmini a few months back.  The red and Ivory card stock are from Recollections.  I used my brand new Crafter's Companion Embossalicious folder "Seasonal Music" to emboss the Ivory layer that I then took my Tim Holtz blending tool and went over the whole thing with walnut stain distress ink covering the corners and edges darker.  I then took abandoned Coral distress ink with my blending tool and went over corners and edges again blending in toward the center.  I rolled the left corner and rubbed that underside corner with walnut stain as well.  For the centerpiece of this card I used Craftin Desert Diva's  (aka CDD) "Simply Holidays Wordart".  I also cut the svg backing file for this stamp...provided by Tara from CDD in the Facebook share group!  I cut one in red to stamp onto with Tuxedo Black Memento ink and I cut another larger one in green to layer onto which I used foam tape to pop up this entire piece.   I used a white gel pen to color in the dots on the word snow and the fuzzy stocking pieces.  I also used an adorable owl stamp from CDD "Owl-idays" peeking out from behind the rolled music sheet.  I cut him out with my new SNC2, colored him in with my new Spectrum Noir markers and used glossy accents for the rim of the hat.  I also used some fun CDD "Merry Mix" sequins that I won a month or so back (playing bingo I think) for one of the new release party weeks... Thank you Tara... Love them!!!
Oh, and last but not least for the front I added some black enamel dots to the three corners of the music sheet and one medium sparkly one to the top of the little owl's hat that I also won from another company .

For the inside I carried over the same fun theme using some of the same papers as the front to add some trim strips.  I used a spellbinders die cut for the ornaments down the strip stamping each one with an owl face again from CDD "Owl-idays" stamp set.  I placed 1 of each color of the sequins to top off each hat and used a dark green sharpie to dot the center of each sequin.  I used the sentiment Happy Owl-idays from that same set.  At the bottom right corner I decided to use 2 stamped ornaments from CDD "Chill Out" stamp set onto coordinating papers.  I used my SNC2 to cut them out and inked them and cut inside piece out by hand ..... tricky but can be done lol

I am entering my project into these fun challenges:


Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you all have a wonderful and crafty day!

3D Mourners Hat and Guest Diva

Good Morning Crafty Friends, I am so happy to have been asked to be a
Die Cuttin' Divas "Special Guest Diva"
 for
http://diecuttindivas.blogspot.com/2015/09/challenge-232-3d-projects.html
Woot Woot... I feel so Honored and so excited!
 
So I wanted to create something really cool and had put this off since last year and decided it would be perfect for this fun 3D Challenge!!!
 
 
The svg cutting file is from SVG Attic and can be found here - JGW Raven Quest
There are a few other cool patterns in this file set that accompany the hat file.

I cut the Hat Pieces out of a thin chipboard with my deep cut blade on my Cricut.  I used this tutorial to assemble - http://needlesnknowledge.blogspot.com/2014/10/mourners-decorated-top-hat-assembly.html and found that it went together very easily. 

I then painted my hat Black with just plain Black Americana Acrylic paint.  after I let it dry I took a light green ink pad and smudged smears all over the hat to age and distress it.  I added two buttons to the fancy piece instead of using the circle cut pieces from the file.  I didn't have the color of buttons I wanted to use so I just took 2 white ones and used my purple sharpie marker to color them and get the color I wanted :)  I then added them to fancy piece on hat with foam tape.

I then took some black wire edged ribbon I bought at Costco several years ago and folded it in half and wrapped around the hat. then attached with hot glue for the hat band.  I also created a bow tie looking bow out of same ribbon and attached to hat band.  I die cut some swirls out of purple cardstock and glued those to the hat and added several pretty light purple sequins to those.  I added to real feather's that matched the purple buttons.  I then cut the rolled flower (included in this kit) out of a slightly lighter purple cardstock.  after rolling for assembly, I curved and tattered the petals and added a pretty white glittery dome shape to the center of the flower.  I then cut the skull head once out of the thin chipboard and once out of glow in the dark white vinyl.  I had some scraps leftover from a previous project I worked on recently... I love the added touch it gave!  I hot glued the skull head to the rolled flower and voila... all done.
I am very happy how well this project turned out and have to say I was a bit intimidated by it and now realize it was a piece of cake.  Great file... Thanks SVG Attic.
I will be entering this project in these fun Challenges:
Jo's Scrap Shack - Anything Goes
Little Scrap Pieces - Show It Off Saturday Linky Party

For my Projects today:
I created a fun summer card and tag set.  I wanted it to look like a picnic spread out with the ant stealing the slice of watermelon and the watermelon looking like an uh-oh face as it's carried off.  I created this set with my brand-new Cricut Explore Air that I won from Cricut Lover's Guide to Design Space.  It was donated from Cricut.  I am so so happy and so very thankful to have won this absolutely wonderful machine.  Plus the luxury of creating and cutting right from my iPad oh my goodness I'm in heaven.  OK onto my projects and the supplies I used.

The card base is a standard 5.5" x 4.25" which I added a yellow pattern paper to.  The funky mat is from formal occasion cartridge - blue tag.  I cut this in 2 layers, The back is just black card stock and the top layer being from a beautiful summer stack that my step daughter gave me as a gift years ago that I've been hoarding ha ha.  It is a beautiful metallic foil paper that looks like a picnic tablecloth and ants crawling around on it.  It is from momenta - called summer fun.  The watermelon slices are from Cricut Simply Charmed ... love that cartridge and I added peachy keen faces to both.  On the card I wanted an uh-oh face and I went with simple Sallies & on the tag I used one from basic paper dolls.  I chalked the cheeks pink and dotted them with white gel pen and I also faux stitched around each of the watermelon slices with white gel pen.  The ant is from Cricut Nate's ABC's cartridge which I also enhanced with white gel pen.  For the ant's eye I added a clear gem that I colored with a blue sharpie marker before I adhered it on to him.  The beautiful stitched grass is from Desert Craftin Diva's - Outdoor Landscape Die.  I also used their stamp set Short & Sweet Tags to add the "Thanks" sentiment & flag stitching for the card and the "For you" sentiment on the tag.  Tara provides the SVG cut outs for those stamps free.  The seeds are an SVG file from could KaDoodle Bug designs named watermelon mouse.  I also added white gel pen to the seeds for enhancement.  
The tag base itself is from very Merry tags cartridge.  Summers the bounty stamp is from my stash maker unknown.  On the yellow edges of the card I stamped a border stamp from a card maker kit and then added red sequence with a dab of red glitter glue inside each one.  I also added some green dew drops around the outside and a couple scattered on the picnic blanket which look red because of the background.  
 
I added one dew drop to the tag as well.  To finish off the tag I added some ribbon that I recently won in a challenge from Karen over at little scrap pieces ... I love this ribbon.  I then added a red button from my stash tied on with some green and white bakers twine that I picked up at dollar tree the other day.
