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!
Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I am here to share two little cards I created for this month’s challenge. The theme this month is trees and since Christmas is just around the corner I thought I would make a couple of cards that can be added to my Christmas packages.
I started by cutting and folding a piece of 3″x6″ cardstock to make a 3″x3″ card base for each card. I used an assortment of scraps of cardstock to decorate the base.
I used Brenda Walton’s Movers and Shapers Label diecut and the Powdered Sugar Embossing folder on some of the scraps of cardstock.
I used the Treetops Cuttlebug diecut to create these Christmas trees. I inked the green one with chalk ink and added a sequin and pearl to the top of each tree. I finished off each card with a banner and a sentiment that I printed from the computer.
If you have any questions about these cards please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! It me, Tonya and I am here to share a card that I created. This month’s theme is butterflies and this is what I came up with.
I started by using the Scallop Card #3 diecut which I cut from Gold and Kraft and Damask cardstock. I then stamped the sentiment (from Paper Studio) onto a piece of white cardstock, inked the edges and adhered two pearl Dew Drops to the swirls on the sentiment.
Next I cut from a variety of Canvas Corp cardstocks: Turquoise and White, Hot Pink and White, Lime Green and White Ribbon and Blue and Ivory Mini Dot Reverse) the banners and butterflies (retired Stamping’ Up! Sizzix Beautiful Butterflies). I inked the edges of the banners and then adhered all pieces to the cardbase.
I used a 7 gypsies Photo Turn (retired) for the body of the butterfly and I added sequin and a Dew Drop for the head. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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.
Other Supplies:Pink and Lime Green Thread, Lace, Tulle, Buttons, Paper Flowers, Martha Stewart Edge Punch, Pearl Sprays, Chalk Ink
