Roses & A Cup of Tea

Good Morning ya’all,

Hope you had a fabulous weekend. Today I am sharing an ATC that is a shabby chic look. Hope you all like it as our them this Month is “Flowers”, which is perfectly fitting with spring in the air, right?

ATC’s are Artist Trading Cards which measure 2 1/2 by 3 1/2. I making these little cards as they do not take a lot of time and there is not a lot of room. So they are something quick and easy to create when you want to craft but don’t have a lot of time.

Here is what I did to accomplish this ATC –

I used Blue Fern paper collection – Blush cut my base down to 2 1/2 by 3 1/2, fussy cut the teacup, bird & flower and heart with the little message inside the teacup. I added glossy accents to the heart and teacup. Crystal stickles to the fussy cut rose. Liquid pearls white to to the metal key and Say it with Pearls by Want 2 Scrap – white pearls in the corner and left side. I adhered lace in the middle of the card and placed the Prima Rose along with the gold heart button and fussy cut heart, teachp and other items ontop of the Lace from Reneabouquets, and the glitter glass is adhered on the background and placed my Reneabouquet butterfly to finish it off. I did distress the edges of the paper and used TH distress inks broken china & spun sugar around the card.

 Here you can see the Glitter Glass in the background 
You can notice the white liquid pearls I placed 
in the center of the Key and the little lace heart
peeking through
Supplies:
Paper – Blue Fern – Blush
Inks – TH distress inks – broken china & spun sugar
Accessories- Want 2 Scrap – say it with pearls; Buttons Galore – gold heart button; Glossy Accents; Stickles – crystals; Liquid Pearls – white; Renea Bouquets – lace, metal key, butterfly, glitter glass; Prima Marketing – pink rose

Julie Nutting Doll In Lace, Glitter and Bling

Hi All,

Deborah here posting another creation I made for Crafty Card Gallery
to go with our theme – female birthday for the month of March.

I know it’s a bit late but before I posted had to make sure that my swap partner received it as I had joined Scraps Of Darkness and Scrap Of Elegance facebook page Doll Tag Swap.

I always wondered why everyone loved using these Dolls and so I thought, “I gotta see what all the excitement is about them”. And I have to say, I thoroughly enjoyed coloring and embellishing this doll. There is so much versatility in using these Doll Stamps. This one was an image that was previously given to me by a friend but I did go out and purchase one from Hobby Lobby. (heheheheeee)

So here is my doll tag and supplies –

Stamp – Julie Nutting Doll stamp (I don’t know the name)
Paper – Authentique – Classique Pretty and Tags
Ink – TH Distress – black soot, spun sugar; colored with Copics
Accessories – ribbon – pink; seam binding – dyed using black soot; Lace; Prima Marketing – Gold flower center, Say it in Crystals;
Stickles – ice glade; Stampendous – Frantage embossing powder used Shabby pink (for the background)
**Stash – flowers

***Close Up – you can see the Frantage spread around the

tag and image.

***To get her dress to look poofy I folded up a piece of paper
like a skirt gluing that down first and then added the Lace
on top of the paper.

Thanks for stopping by to visit us we appreciate all your comments.Hope you have a great day and stay Crafty!!

Hugs,

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!


Vintage Inspired Santa Tag

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!


Snow and Penguins

Hi everyone! It’s me Tonya and I’m here to share a card I created for the Crafty Card Gallery blog. This month’s theme was either snow or penguins. Well, I incorporated both into my card. 🙂
I started with a folded 4″x6.5″ piece of cardstock from the Robin’s Nest.

I stamped the Penguin and verbiage  onto a piece of textured white cardstock and fussy cut the penguin out and inked around the edges. I adhered scraps of cardstock and a 4″ doily to the front of the card along with the penguin and sentiment.

I added sequins, stickles and a snowflake sequins to finish out the card. If you have any questions about this card please let me know.

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