Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for the month of October we had to either use pumpkin/jack o’lanterns or chocolate. 
This is what I came up with for my card. The base is a folded 6″x6″ piece of purple cardstock. I cut and layered patterned cardstock/scrapbook paper which I adhered to the base of the card.

The Clyde’s Pumpkin Patch image is cut from Echo Park’s Chillingsworth Manor  Poster  and Tickets sheet of cardstock. I distressed the edges and then inked. Then added pop dots to the back to give it some “height”. 

I cut three thin strips of orange tulle and made mini bows out of them. I adhered behind the image along with some black and white polka dot flowers and some mini lime green balls picks that I had bought at Christmas but never used. I also added sequins, dew drops and black lace.

I finished off the card with ric rac and buttons. I’m really pleased with how the card turned out and was very easy to make.

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!

What the World Needs is a Group Hug

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a card I created for Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for this month is blue and tan and this is my take on this month’s challenge. 

With all the craziness that has been going in the world I just wished that we could all get along and I thought this sentiment was perfect to convey what I wanted to get across. 
The base of the card is from K & Company’s Julianne card making pad. I love the fact that the base and the rubber stamp I used from 7 Gypsies are a perfect complement to each other. I used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper to frame the hearts which I cutout from the Sizzix Hearts and Brackets diecut. I free handed a banner for the sentiment and adhered all together.

A very quick and simple card! If you have any questions please let me know.

Supplies Used:
K & Company: Julianne Cardmaking Pad
Robin’s Nest: Dew Drops
Sizzix: Heart and Bracket Diecut
Sequin
7 Gypsies: Collections from the Journey Stamp Set
StazOn Ink

When Your Giddy Up has Got Up and Left

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share a card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. This months theme is animals and this is what I came up with.
I used a pre-cut card base from K & Company’s Julianne collection. I love the fact its cut to size and all you have to do fold. I stamped the Da Vinci Horse from Stampendous! onto a piece of Vanilla Fleur Glitter Cardstock  and adhered to the top of the card base  Next I cut out the “Old Dan” horse which is a free printable from Eclectic Anthology. I roughed up the edges of the printable, added part of an old zipper along the bottom of the printable and glued to the base. I printed the sentiments from the computer, cut out my own banner, used an oval distressed metal pick to adhere both sentiments to the card. I used Dew Drops to finish up my card.

I think this is a fairly easy card to do if I do say so myself. ๐Ÿ™‚

#1 Dad Easel Card

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya and this month we had to try a new technique. Well, if you know me I love taking a 12×12 sheet of cardstock and making four 3″x6″ cards out of that one sheet. After much trial and errorโ€ฆI tried gesso and a stencil and let me tell you I had a very big mess but I did manage a few gessoed dots on the top part of my card without smearing. I did decided to finally try my hand at a easel card and this is what I came up with.
I cut a 6″x6″ cardbase from Calamity Jane Stripe cardstock and the easel I cut a 6″x11″ with folds at 4″, 4″,1″,1″,1″ from brown cardstock.
The sailors digital image is from Eclectic Anthology. I printed on cardstock and fussy cut out. I cut a piece of cream cardstock and distressed the edges and inked and then adhered the sailor image to the top of it. Next I added gauze, twine around the edge of the cream colored cardstock and then adhered to the base. I fussy cut sea life from a sheet of scrapbook paper that is from Paper Studio. I adhered those along with real mini seashells, dew drops and sequins around the edges of the base.

I folded the brown cardstock and adhered to the back of the card. 

Next I cut the leftover striped and red cardstock and glued three of the sides to the back to make a pocket. It will be perfect to add a small note and gift card. Now I have a father’s day card finished and need to create one more. ๐Ÿ™‚

If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Celebrate Big!

Hi everyone! It’s me, Tonya. I’m here to share a quick card I created. I cut a 4″x5 1/2″ base from white cardstock. Used scraps of cardstock and scrapbook paper I had laying around, stamped Celebrate Big on a scrap of white cardstock and inked all edges of before adhering to the top of the card. The diecut I received in a swap over a year ago is from Spellbinders but I’m not sure which set it is from??? 
The last thing I added was some sequins and dew drops to the banner and a tiny flower which sequin and dew drop to the corner of the celebrate sign.

This is a very easy peasy card that you can knock out in only a short amount of time. It can be used for a birthday or retirement celebration.

A Little Birdie Told Meโ€ฆ

Hi everyone!!! Spring is almost here!!! Days are getting longer and a little bit warmer which has got me in the mood to create something fun  and springy. ๐Ÿ™‚ I have a card I created for this month challenge which is something  birthday related.
I stared with cutting a card base using the Sizzix Card, Scallop #3 die from Moss Green Glitter Cardstock. Next I gathered up my card stock scraps, two stickers from the Robin’s Nest: Spring Sticker and White Dew Drop  to use on this adorable card. The little birdie is from the Little Spring Birdies college sheet from Altered Pages. I fussy cut one of the bird out and added a sequin, Crystal Stickles and a little party hat that I cut from my scraps. The birthday is sentiment is from the Stampin’ Up Simple Sayings II set. 

Isn’t the little birdie just festive???
