Valentine’s Day Banner

Hi all,

Deborah here with a Valentine’s Day share. I know Valentine’s is over, but our Theme for this month is Love/Sweets so I made a banner for Valentine’s Day and thought I would share.

For my banner I used an old tag that I traced on Kraft cardstock and then cut out. I placed eyelets at the top of the tags and ran lace through each one.
Supplies I used:
Embossing folder – dots
Paper – Blue Fern – Blush
Martha Stewart Punches
Prima – frames that I sprayed with color bloom sprays – cotton candy
Buttons from Buttons Galore
From my stash – lace, white pearls, feathers are from Joanns, wooden bird,
Vellum Valentine’s Day from Quick Quotes
Reneabouquets – butterflies (just gorgeous) & Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand & Glass Microbeads – Gold
Tim Holtz – Remnant Rubs – Botanical & Apothecary and Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy”
I shaded around each tag with PowderPuff – Very Berry.

I sprayed the frame with Color Bloom – Cotton Candy to give a little pink affect. 
I placed glue around the inside of the frame and then 
used Reneabouquet glass microbeads – Gold and let it dry. Also used the
TH Remnant Rubs “LOVE”inside the frame. Added a feathers and a button.
 Here I added a wooden bird I colored with a brown marker and added 
gold stickles to the wings. I also added sentiments from the TH
Remnant Rubs and drew a heart. The white butterfly is from Reneabouquets.
I used a Prima frame and added some pink paint on the from and added some 
Reneabouquet Chunky Glitter Glass – Sand on top of the pink areas. 
 Again I added TH Remnant Rubs female silhouette. A little pink flower
I had in my stash.
 On the first tag I used Sizzix Thinlits/TH Celebrate – sentiments die “happy” 
and a Vellum sentiment from Quick Quotes. 
There is a heart shaped button and a little pink flower from my stash. 
2nd Tag – has some feathers and heart shaped  button from Buttons Galore. 

Well I hope you found some inspiration today. With Easter coming up I think this might be a great idea to use as well, don’t you think?

Always and Forever

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya! I hope everyone had a nice Valentine’s Day. The hubby and I went to Bluegrass Underground for a concert in Cumberland Caverns. Yep, music in a cave. The acoustics are incredible and the temperature inside is 56 degrees year round which I still think it is cold but yesterday the temps where 32 degrees and it actually felt warm once we got inside the cave. That was my Valentine’s Day gift along with a trip to Sonic afterwards for a Butterfingers Blast…yum! 
Anyway this month’s theme over at the Crafty Card Gallery blog is Valentine’s Day and I want to share the card I created.

I started with a folded 4″x6″ patterned cardstock as the base for my card. I layered four pieces of patterned cardstock across the base of the card, then a gold foiled heart which I adhered all pieces down.

Next adhered two more scraps of cardstock diagonal on top of the foil heart.

Lastly I added always and forever diecut sentiment from my stash, Ric Rac and a button with thread to finish off this card. Very simple yet elegant. 🙂 If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

 Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!


You are the Bee’s Knees

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share a card for Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month’s theme is CHA inspired. Since I had some of my projects in some of the booths at CHA and I had used digital images/vintage theme I chose to go that route with my card.
I started with a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock from the Kraft and Black Cardstock Paper Pad which I folded in half…3″x6″…to create a card base. I gathered up scraps of patterned cardstock that had a vintage, pinkish, valentinish feel. Which I cut, punched and adhered to the front of the card.

The girl image I found on Tammy Tutterow’s blog and best part it is free. I love the mischievous look on the little girl’s face. I sized the image down and fussy cut out. Next I printed out some butterfly wings that I purchased from Altered Pages and I fussy cut those out too. I adhered the wings to the back of the girl and then glued her to the card base. The wings I added a little Stickles to the wings and punched a crown out and glued to the little girl’s head. I also added flat back pearls to the crown.

I finished off the card with bits of lace and trim and a button. Also on the scalloped edge of the cardstock I added sequin and more flat back pearls. The sentiment I printed from the computer. The plan is to use this card in a Valentine’s Day card swap that I signed up for over on Instagram…fingers crossed she likes it. 🙂
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Monday is awesome and enjoy creating!


Celebration Seeds

Hi everyone! It is me, Tonya and I would like to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery and this month’s theme is flowers. What I created isn’t a card but a little gift bag which you can put a card inside, gift card or something fun.
I started out with a 5″x7 1/2″ Large Paper Bag which I cut the “flap” off and punched the top of the bag with a decorative punch. Cut and adhered a 5″x5″ piece from the Take Our Breath Away Gypsy Moments Cardstock and ink the edges with green chalk ink. Then I adhered a Black Bookmark off center of the bag.

I cut the Best Wishes image from the Seed Packets on Ivory Cardstock. I love this collection. You can leave it as is or add paint/color to the image.

I used pop dots to raise the image off of the bag. I also used thread,l tulle, lace, pearl sprays, paper flowers and buttons to finish off the bag. I hope you like what I created and if you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:
Other Supplies:Pink and Lime Green Thread, Lace, Tulle, Buttons, Paper Flowers, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Pearl Sprays, Chalk Ink
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

Just a Note of Thanks!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a quick card I created. For this month’s challenge we had to come up with a thank you card.
I started with a folded 3″x6″ piece of cardstock as my base and cut a piece of typewriter cardstock slightly smaller than the base of the card.

I  dug through my mass collection of scraps and then cut various sizes of cardstock which I adhered to the bottom half of the card. The vintage typewriter is a digital image I found online and can’t remember where I found it. Just do a google/bing search for vintage typewriters and there’s a ton of images out there. 

I printed and then fussy cut the the typewriter out, used a little chalk ink to give it an old look. I also cut a slit in the typewriter so I cut add the “Just a note of thanks!”(printed off the computer) in and make it look like it was actually typed out. I finished off the card with two little hand cut banners, button, sequin and a dew drop. 
The hardest thing about this card is the fussy cutting. 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!


Be Thankful

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a quick card I created for the this month’s challenge. We had to create a card in the theme of Fall which could be either leaves, fall colors, pumpkins or thanksgiving.
I started with a 6″x12″ piece of polka dotted cardstock which I folded in half to created a 6″x6″ card base. I cut four pieces of cardstock/scrapbook paper down to fit the front of the card which I then adhered to the middle of the card. 

Next I printed off the turkey and “Be Thankful” images. I fussy cut the turkey out and the be thankful sentiment I cut from the whole saying Keep Calm and Be Thankful. I adhered the image to the card and added stickles to the leaf, turkey and acorns.

I adhered a small piece of cardstock to the corner of the card along with the sentiment and a button.

A very easy card other than the fussy cutting. 🙂 If you have any questions please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is awesome and enjoy creating!
