Hello everyone! Today I want to share the valentines that I created for my grandkids. For my granddaughters card I used a really fun svg file from Lori Whitlock. Here’s the card I made for my granddaughter.
Here’s the card when it’s open. It’s a fun pop out card. I used my Cricut Explore Air2 to cut out this card. I even used the writing feature to write the sentiment.
For my grandsons card I decided to create the card without using the file. I did cut out a cute bee from Miss Kate Cuttables.
I used a couple of stamp sets from CardzTv to stamp the sentiment on the inside.
There you have it! I need to get these in the mail so they can receive them on time. Have a great weekend!

Hello everyone! It’s time for a new challenge over at PDE Linky Party! The challenge is “All Cards”. Here’s the card that I created for the challenge.
I absolutely loved this cute scarecrow sticker and wanted to use it on my card. I used some of my new Lawn Fawn dies to create the base and the little hill. I also used a Lawn Fawn die for my leaves.
I wanted the scarecrow sticker to stand out from the background so I put him on some black cardstock and trimmed around him then popped him up with some foam tape. I added some more fun die cuts to set my little seen and the front of my card is all ready.
I stamped the inside sentiment using CardzTv Stamp Set Thankful For You and added another little die cut leaf.
That’s my card. I hope you will join the challenge over at PDE Linky Party! Have a great weekend!
Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created for Mary’s challenge over at CardzTv. Here’s the challenge…
Cardz TV Sketch Designers Challenge #2
Create a card for Fall using Sketch #3 or #4.
For my card I used Sketch #3. You can get Mary’s sketches from her blog.
Here’s my card. I wanted my card to be a different size so I used the sketch without the measurements.
My fun design papers are from Lawn Fawn called Perfectly Plaid Fall. My little Pumpkin Owl is from Miss Kate Cuttables.
Here’s a closeup of my card.
I used my new favorite leaf die from Lawn Fawn for the leaves. I used the CardzTv stamp set Thankful for You for my sentiment. I left the inside blank but decided to add a few more die cut leaves.
That’s my card for Mary’s challenge. You should check it out and play along! Have a great day!
Hello everyone! Happy Friday! That means it’s time for another challenge at PDE Linky Party. The challenge this week is Anything But a Card! I got a new die set designed by Lori Whitlock for Sizzix and wanted to use it for my project this week. It’s a really cute 3D mini lantern. Here’s my project.
I die cut the lantern with some brown cardstock and then used another new die set I had from Lawn Fawn to cut the leaves. I used the Stampin Up Acorn punch for the little acorn and then added some May Arts twine. I used the CardzTv stamp set Thankful for Fall for the sentiment across the front.
I think that’s my new favorite die set for leaves. The little lantern will fit a small battery operated tea light through the top. I used some mini brads to attach the little handle.
That my project for this weeks challenge. I hope you will decide to play along! Here’s a quick photo of the die and stamp sets that I used in my project.
I decided to create a shaped card using the half watermelon. I also thought it would be fun if it was a shaker card. Here’s my watermelon shaker card.
The card measures approximately 4-1/4 inches. For the shaker part of the card I used some black and clear sequins as the watermelon seeds. Whenever I create a shaker card I like to cut multiple layers and stack them so I don’t have to use foam adhesive.
The sentiment for my card came from the CardzTv stamp set Fun in the Sun. I stamped the sentiment in black and added a couple of black sequins to the sentiment banner as well.
That’s my card for today. Thanks to Miss Kate Cuttables for allowing me to be a guest designer for them. Love me some Miss Kate’s! Have a great day!!
Hi everyone! Today I have a Mother’s Day card to share. I created a pocket card using some papers from the beautiful Bo Bunny Secret Garden paper collection.
For the front I fussy cut around the bird so I could insert a small die cut doily. I stamped the sentiment using CardzTv stamp set Big & Bold Sentiments.
For the inside tag of the pocket card I used the CardzTv stamp set Happy Days. I added an eyelet and some pretty sheer stitched ribbon from May Arts to the top of the insert. I added a small little banner with an enamel dot to the top as well. I used a decorative corner punch as well.
Thanks for looking! Have a great week!
I am entering this card in the Cardz TV Card Designers Challenge #6.
Hi everyone! Today I want to share a couple of little Easter treat holders. Mary at CardzTV is having a 3D challenge. For the challenge you are to create a treat holder for Easter. I used the CardzTv stamp set Happy Days for my project. I actually created a treat bag as well as a little pillow box.
For the little treat bag I used some really fun colored vellum from Doodlebug. It has little dots on it as well. It comes in some really fun spring colors and I thought the purple would look cute with my little “peep” die cut.
The treat bag is a die from Stampin Up. I used a Martha Stewart border punch as a little belly band and placed my die cut peep onto some stitched ovals. I added a little die cut tag and stamped Happy Easter on it and then finished it off with a little twine bow.
I used my Pillow Box punch board for the little Easter pillow box. I placed the die cut peep onto a circle and then layered a scalloped circle behind it. I stamped the Happy Easter sentiment onto some pink cardstock then used a small scallop circle to punch it out.
Hello everyone! Today I just wanted to share a cute treat box that I created for Valentines Day. I had some leftover boxes from a Stampin Up kit so I used that for the base of my project.
I wanted something quick so I punched hearts from some Heidi Swapp red glitter paper. I stamped my sentiment onto some white cardstock using the CardzTV stamp set Love in a Jar. I added the sentiment with a small red clothespin.
I added some black and white bakers twine. I layered the large heart onto a white circle then added a black scallop circle behind that. I added a few bling above the heart.
red clothespins – Michaels
small heart punch – Stampin Up Itty Bitty Punch pack
heart punch – Stampin Up Sweetheart Punch
scallop circle – Stampin Up 2-3/8 scallop circle punch
circle – Stampin Up 2 inch circle punch
bling – Stampin Up rhinestones
bakers twine – Doodlebug
Cardztv Stamp Set Love in a Jar
