Gingerbread Girl Easel Card

This Easel card base was one I got from Shirleys Designs
I had to make one more card with this adorable Peachy Keen Stamp that I have Paper Pieced the Dress, Collar and the bows.  I stamped the entire body on white then rubbed it all over with  chalk to get her color.  The frosting hair and frosting squiggles are filled in with shiny purple puffy paint and the nose with pink puffy paint.  Cheeks are blushed with pink chalk with 3 dots of white gel pen on each and eyes are colored in with white gel Pen as well. And the white collar piece I used a almost pink puffy paint then sprinkled with pink glitter.
I cut the Tag from Cricut Very Merry Tags out of Kraft Cardstock, it is popped up on Foam squares to act as the holder when the card is open.  I used a white gel pen to dash around the edges and stamped with pink snowflakes.  I added coordinating colors of jute cord.  The sentiment Stamp is from Desert Craftin Diva's - "Happy Holidays" from Happy Celebrations Stamp set.  I also added a Pink Snowflake from My Craft Spot Die cut with pink bling in the center.  All of my layers are inked with Tim Holtz Walnut Distress ink.

Gingerbread Cutie Center Step Card

So of course as you can see... this entire card was centered around my new adorable Peachy Keen Gingerbread Dolls - Large Stamp (PK-417)  that I recently ordered.  I stamped her on Kraft cardstock and cut her out.  I then paper pieced her... I stamped certain sections again like the dress area on the purple Polk a dot paper... the frosting hair on pink and then again on purple so I could cut out the bows and even the collar area in white.  I am not much of a hand cutting person but paper piecing this little cutie was so worth it :) I used a white almost clear puffy paint for the collar then sprinkled it with white glitter.  I also used pink puffy paint for her frosting squiggles, Pink gel pen for nose, white gel pen for eyes and cheek dots and a little pink chalk to rosy up those cheeks.

The card itself is a center step card I created myself, I also created the pink and purple bottom layers in Scal 2 then ran them through my Snowflake embossing folder.  The Beautiful Oval Behind her is from Spellbinders Opulent Ovals, The fancy border under the Baubles is from Spellbinders Frosty Forms.  The  Snowflakes are from My Craft spot Snowflake Border metal dies, Bauble ornaments are from Cricut Very Merry Tags, front Merry Christmas sentiment stamped on a Spellbinders Banner Die is from Craftin Desert Diva's called Happy Celebrations.

inside stamps are from Cardmaker and I tried to coordinate the inks with colors I used on the front of the card.  "May Magical Moments and Happy Memories Surround You With Joy this Christmas"  I just love that awesome sentiment.  Oh and all of my piecing's including the inside mat are all inked up with Tim Holtz Walnut Stain Distress ink.  Also I added some bling to the bauble ornaments and the snowflakes.

3 Dimensional Fun Thanksgiving Frame

This was so much fun to make and will house a Beautiful Photo of my Grand Kids when they come for Thanksgiving in a couple of weeks!  I will hang this in my dining Room for a little fall D├ęcor this year and every year after :)  Let me apologize for the reflection on the glass, this was almost impossible to get a decent picture of... UGH!!!

I used an 11X14 Frame with some fun Fall Paper out of an extra large Heidi Grace Paper Pad that is 12X18 inches cut to fit as the Background.  
The adorable Turkey in the pot is from Treasure Box Designs called I'm Cooked.  I splattered the pot with white paint (what a mess but like the outcome)  I placed all of the tail feathers how I wanted them and then placed some scotch tape on the back to keep them positioned and ran them through my Cuttlebug Swirls Folder.  For his sign I used my Cricut Brown marker pen to spell out YIKES! then went over it dashed style in white Gel Pen, I ran the sign through Cuttlebug Forest Branches sideways to give it a wood look and on his wings to give them a textured look.  Also used my white gel pen to accent the eyes.  For the fire and wood under the pot I used cuts from Cricut Potpourri Basket Cartridge.  I had to do some customizing and cutting to get the fire out in front of the pot.  Still thinking I may play with and fix that better still :) 
For the Brown Frame mat I used one of my Martha Stewart Punch Around the page sets, Optic Dots.  then I cut a piece of Orange Recollection's cardstock and the a piece of Fall Words Pattern Paper from DCWV The Halloween and Fall Stack to fit the Frame.

The Adorable Squirrel And Acorn Nuts are from Too Cute by Jessica, Nutty For Fall.
I used my Cuttlebug Simply Charmed Squares Folder for embossing the Acorn Tops.  I used my white gel pen to accent the eyes and nose on the adorable squirrel.  I also blushed his cheeks lightly with a peach colored chalk and added 3 whisker dots to each cheek with a brown colored pencil.  I wrapped a light colored sheer ribbon at the top of my frame tied in a simple knot and added some raffia to give a fall look.  I wanted to add a button in the center but did not think the glass would allow for that.  I placed all of that inside the frame and closed it up, but first slid my wide brown ribbon under the glass and again tied a simply knot in the center.  I took a piece of fun shiny orange ribbon and tied it around the brown knot with tails going in opposite direction.  Took some more raffia and cut it into sprigs and added that to the front of my ribbon knots with some Brown and white Bakers Twine.  I used the same twine to hang my adorable tag from.  The Orange tag is a cut from Cricut Very Merry Tags, I added that custom topper I made myself in brown that I also ran through the CB Simply Squared Embossing folder to match with the acorns.

The awesome Sentiment stamp is from Craftin Desert Divas called Simply Holiday's Word Art... I love this set and just received it yesterday :)  Plus I got the Free SVG background layer for the stamp from CDD on FB too.  What a fabulous touch it gives and I was able to pop it up on Foam dots to give such dimension.  I used my water color pencils to color in some things on the stamped image and then used my water brush pen to blend it together a bit.  Oh back up the bow that sticks out, I used a spellbinder's die for the pretty medallion then I added a beautiful Pumpkin I cut from Cricut Thanksgiving Cartridge

Gift Box with tag and metal snowflake

So I have been so busy this week but trying to get this fun gift box made for the Challenge over at My Craft Spot from last week.... I think I am just making it under the wire as they already started their new challenge this week.  Last month I bought this awesome gift box svg from My Craft Spot after viewing all of the wonderful DT projects in the sneak peeks and blog hop (I fell in LOVE).  I wanted to use it in this fun use something metal challenge and here is what I came up with.

 I made the gift box and added dotted lines at the fold lines since I don't have a score tool on my machine.  I absolutely adore this little gift box... It can be used for so much more than just Christmas too.
 The tag came in the same cut file also with the Gift box and so does that beautiful bow on top.  I used one of my fun Tiny Tags Christmas Stamp Set for the December 25 stamped in versamark and then heat embossed in white.  That is also a My Craft Spot Product as well as the awesome snowflake I used from the Snowflake Border Metal die set I got last year from My Craft Spot.  I cut the snowflake out of a Monster Can ( I cut the actual snowflake border out too but have not used it yet) I used the shiny metal side for the front and decided to color it in with a purple sharpie.  I then added it to the fun tag and there you go... what an adorable gift box for some lucky person :)
Here is a view of how I attached the bow to the top of the box with a purple metal brad.

Here is the awesome snowflake Border from that set that I plan to use on something very soon and a few more of the single flakes that I did some coloring on.  the bottom one shows the back  with the monster can label view :)

Fall Place Cards / Nugget Holders

This was a fun project and a great asset to not only let my guests know where to sit at the thanksgiving Day Dinner table, but also gives them a little treat for after the feast.  I designed the nugget holder myself in Scal 2.

I also used Gypsy wanderings for the cute leaf on each and then stamped them with cute peachy keen faces and one of them is a Treasure Box face stamp (the green one on the far left).  Each holder itself is embossed with CB swirls I also added a fun orange fancy spellbinders cut from ironworks accents around the hole before I added the ribbon...what a nice touch it added.  Each holder has two tags attached with a brad.  The mini tag has either a stamped "for you" or a cricut cut "for you" cut from Cricut Alphabet Cartridge.  The bigger tag is embossed with CB squares folder from the simply charmed set with the stamped leaf popped up on foam tape on top of that tag.  Each one has a hand written name tag tucked in behind the tags mad from Spellbinders ribbon banners die.  Inside each place card is a yummy Snickers peanut butter squared.

I am entering this project into these fun Challenges:

Thankful For You Leaf Card

Thankful For You fun Fall Center Step card.

I used several Cricut Cartridges for this one. The back leaves cut from CM Cheerful Seasons the front Leaf from Gypsy Wanderings, which I stamped the with Peachy Keen wide eyed kids face stamp. "Thankful" also from CM Cheerful Seasons... "For You" is from Cricut Alphabet.  plus a spellbinders Moroccan Accents die for that fancy edge on either side of the main center section.  Some cuttlebug embossing done, birds and swirls on side orange pieces and Anna griffin border from Climbing Rose set on bottom orange piece.  That Gorgeous brown pattern paper is like a raised velvet pattern... It is fabulous in person! On the side sections I placed Metal Brown Flower Brad Buddies with an orange flower brad in the center of each.  I tied a pretty gold cord around card with a brown button attached but it was missing something so I added a bushel of raffia behind that.

Harvest Flower Gift Box

A cute little treat box for some Fall goodies.

I used the Flower top box from Cricut Tags Bags Boxes and more cut in Kraft card stock for the box.  I made a simple wrapper for it in some pretty fall stripe paper.  I cut the Harvest from the Cricut CM Cheerful Seasons.

I cut this awesome flower from Cricut Bloom cartridge and curled up the petals to give it some definition and only attached it to one half of the flower top box so you can still get inside to the treats.
