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 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. 🙂

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 error…I 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. 🙂
If you have any questions please let me know. Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is awesome and enjoy creating!!! 🙂

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. 🙂 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???

Hi everyone!!! It’s me Tonya and I’m here to share my card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. The theme for this month is either black and white or penguins. Well, I do have some penguins stamps but decided to go the black and white route. I used the backside of the Wind Flame with Thermal Icing , Black and White Glitter Border Swirl and Black Glitter Swirl on White cardstock from the Robin’s Nest to create the base and decorate the front of my 5″x8″ card along with some other scraps I had laying around. The corset diecut is from Gina’s Designs which I painted with white acrylic paint and once dry I added extra fine glitter to the top of it. Next I added gathered lace to make a skirt and last but not least I printed out “It’s Your Day” sentiment to the card.
Super easy card to make!!! It could be used either for a bridal shower or wedding card.

Hi everyone!!! It’s me Tonya!!! Can you believe it is only a week and a day and it will be Christmas!?!!?!? Are you ready??? Me? I finished my shopping today so all I need to do is wrap presents and if possible knock out a few handmade projects for some extra special people on my list.
Well, I’m here to share a card I created using a mini paperbag. All you have to do is fold the end of the bag to were it fits under the flat of the “bottom” of the bag. Next cut cardstock to fit each fold/flap of your card. I inked all edges of the cardstock before adhering to the card.
I used my Cuttlebug snowflake diecut and cut one snowflake from velum and the other one from cardstock which all the cardstock and chipboard snowflake is from the Winter Collection(Russia) from the Robin’s Nest and the Deco Snowflake sticker are from Ecstasy Crafts.
Now if you want to you can add a sweet little goodie inside the bag. Won’t that be a sweet surprise???
