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!
Hi everyone! I am here to share a very quick project for Crafty Card Gallery blog and this month’s theme is Christmas. I know this is not a card but since I was needing a tag for my journal I thought I would share anyways. 🙂
I started with a 8 1/2″x3″ manilla tag as the base for my tag and then adhered a variety of patterned Christmas cardstock to the base and cut several bits of ric rac, fiber, beading and ribbon and tied to the top of the tag.
I used the Stampendous Jolly Santa stamp and stamped on white cardstock and a variety of patterned cardstock (hat and holly) which I fussy cut all out. The patterned cardstock I adhered to the top of the white Santa cut out. Next I lightly inked Santa’s beard in a tan to give it a vintage look. I used chalk on the face, cheeks and eyes. I glued the image to the tag and then added Stickles to the beard, hat and holly to finish off this quick little project. I hope you enjoyed this and if you have any questions about this tag please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by, hope your Saturday is awesome and enjoy creating!
Hi everyone! This month’s theme is Christmas here at Crafty Card Gallery and I am here to share my take on this month’s theme. Also if you didn’t know there is only 36 days until Christmas. It is so hard to believe that it is right around the corner. YIKES! I have been on a quest to try and use up scraps of cardstock on projects and this is what I came up with just using bits and pieces I had laying around.
I started with a 6″x6″ piece of Red Plain Linen Cardstock which I folded to 3″x6″ to create the card base. I ran a scrap of Brick Glitter Cardstock through my diecut machine using the Spellbinders Long Classic Scalloped Rectangle die and then I embossed it with the Snow Globe folder. Next I gathered more scraps and cut into banners and adhered to the card. The little tab that sticks out on the card is actually a clothing tag that I inked the edges and covered with some cardstock, sequin and dew drop.
The little “elf” girl I found online but I can’t remember where so if I do remember I will add the link. I printed her off and fussy cut out. I cut a little pointy hat out and glued it and the little girl to the card base.
I used the poinsettia diecut and cut the flower out three times and shaped with a stylus. I glued together, added a bit of green Ric Rac and metallic thread along with a gold sequin and dew drop to finish off the poinsettia.
If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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!
Hi everyone!!! It’s me, Tonya and I’m here to share two cards I created for our monthly challenge over at the Crafty Card Gallery. The theme for this month is pumpkins and this is the cards I came up with.
Both cards bases are cut from a 6″x6″ piece of cardstock and then folded into a 3″x6″ base for each card. The first is card is very easy to make. I used scraps of cardstock, buttons, Dew Drop, Ric Rac, and I used one of those $1 stamps that you can get at Michaels and stamped jack-o-lantern on a scrap of orange cardstock. Pretty simple huh? 🙂
The next card I used Damask Black and White cardstock
for the base of my card which I inked all edges of with Martha Stewart Stem Green Chalk Ink. I also used scraps of cardstock, buttons, Dew Drops, a doily that I glimmer misted with Tattered Angels Peach Delight and the 31 is cut from Sizzix Funky Brush dies. The vintage pumpkin image (I cut the image down) I got from Ephemera’s Vintage Garden
. There are five more Halloween images that are perfect for cards too.
If you have any questions about either card please let me know.
Thanks for stopping by today and I hope your Friday is wonderful and enjoy creating!!!
