Designer Beth ~ May Challenge “Something Around Your Home”

Hi, Beth here from The Crafty Scrap Yard!
Today, we’re sharing with you our “stamp challenge” for this month with Crafty Card Gallery design team. 
For this challenge we we’re asked to use: An item you would find in or around your home must be featured on your card.

Here is our card:

We love fruits & vegetables at our house!  You can always find an apple…in fact several types at our house.  When we moved to Arizona we never would have imagined they would have apple orchards here, but they do!  We love to go and pick them in the fall.  We have yet to find AZ cider like they have back from the Midwest but we did from some from the Midwest the past two years at Sam’s/Costco, yeah!!   

More details about our card can be found on our blog at here.

Birds of a feather flock together….

Hello Crafting friends,
It’s Nancy here and my turn to show you what I have created for our challenge this month.  The challenge was to use an item you would find in or around your home and it must be featured on your card.  It could be a stamp of a tree a cutout of a window or door, a key, etc….
I chose a bird!  We are so very fortunate to have a pond directly across the street from our home and have many a species of birds who grace us with their presence!  Not to leave out the hundreds of ducks that leave a little bit of themselves behind as well as a reminder that they were there….
We will save them for another card….lol
Here is what I came up with!

I thought it might be fun to add some texture to my bird by running him through a SU embossing folder.  Also, his wing is made from a butterfly punch cut in half.
Card Details:
Cardstock: SU and a scrap of red
Stamps: Sentiment -by Darcies 
Ink: Stazon Brown
Tools: Cricut- Picturesque cartridge- bird and branch
Cuttlebug: Lattice Folder from SU
Acc: Washi Tape, ribbon and pop dots
Thanks for stoppin’ in today…we love when you do!
Feel free to stop on over to my blog sometime and say hello!
Happy creating,

Design Team Challenge: Something Around Your Home

Good day all. I am here to share my Design Team project here at Crafty Card Gallery. Our challenge for this month was to make a card representing something around our house. Well, in our house clocks are a HUGE deal. Hubby makes the most beautiful clocks and my kids love to ignore them when they go off for school/work. So in honor of the many clocks that are scattered around our home, I made this card:

Of course I had to inject my sense of humor into this card. We all know it is 5 o’clock somewhere and I think this would make a great invite for time out with some friends. 

And here is a pic of a clock Hubby made for his sister:

Thanks to Jenn for having me over for a visit. Until next time…

A Birthday Card For The Plant vs Zombie Lover…

Hi, Thia here from Blue Moon Creation as today’s Guest Designer here on Crafty Card Gallery.

This month, our card is supposed to have an element from our home, so I picked something I see a lot of my hubby and son doing…playing Plants vs. Zombies on the iPad.

Being my hubby’s birthday, I decided to create this card (not from the Zombies) for him.

To see how I did it, please visit my blog HERE.

Thanks for stopping by the Crafty Card Gallery today!
