For my project, I created a holiday card with the cute new Cuckoo Clock stamp set; love this clock image!
The clock was colored with markers and layered it with foam tape to add dimension. I used the Nesting Rectangle Fancy Frame Die Set for the center card and silver glitter layer and adhered them to a A2 sized card base. D2BA snowflake pattern paper gave the card a wintery background and the looks amazing with the colors used on the clock.

To add more detail to the white center card, I stamped a variety of snowflakes from the Christmas Owl stamp set in shades of blue. I like the soft blue tones and the mix of snowflake shapes and sizes. Lastly, I stamped the sentiment "I'm Cuckoo for You." in a coordinating blue ink to complete the design.

Stinkin' Fun Birthday Shaker!

Good morning Friends!
Tasha here sharing another fun birthday card created with the adorable Stinkin' Happy stamp set!

For this festive shaker card, I created a center step card base and built the shaker on top of the center panel. The shaker frame features my favorite D2BA pattern paper that coordinates perfectly with the yellow and pink layers!

The sentiment "Happy Stinkin' Birthday" was stamped with Totally Black Ink on to a sky colored background. Instead of sequins, I used blue and yellow beads. I just love this color combo!

The cute skunk and flower images were colored with markers and layered on the card with foam dots. green glitter paper added some sparkle and a simple grass lined border added more detail to the bottom of the card.

To complete the design, I added pretty yellow floral pattern paper to each side panel. I also added a cute little heart cut from the coordinating Skunk Die Set to the top of the shaker frame. This card is just too Stinkin' sweet and I can not wait to mail it to a special friend!

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you enjoyed today's project!

D2BA August Challenge -Anything Goes

Hello and welcome back to my blog!
Today's project was created for the Dare 2B Artzy August Challenge.

The theme is "Anything Goes" and I used the lovely Poinsettia Tangle stamp set to create a fun gift card holder/tag.

The box was constructed with heavy weight card stock and the inside pocket was decorated with new plaid D2BA pattern paper; love plaids!!!

To give the pretty poinsettia more texture, I used the coordinating dies to cut out two layers and colored the petals with watercolors. For the center, I used three red flower stamens to give tons of texture and a little sparkle. 

The sentiment selected was "Season's Greetings" and it was embossed in white on red card stock. The white pops and I love the red and white color combo next to the plaid paper.

Lastly, Gold glitter paper was layered on the front of the box and I created a cute little bow from the same plaid paper. A gold metallic ribbon was used for the loop to attach the tag to a gift bag or hang on a tree. These are going to be awesome for gift-giving this holiday season!

You're A Classic!

Hello Friends!
Tasha here sharing a masculine birthday card inspired by the D2BA July Challenge!
For my card, I used the fun Classic Dad stamp set to create a retro themed masculine card. I love the variety of images and sentiments included in this set!

The car was colored with markers and I used pretty teal colors to allow it to really pop. I layered the car with foam tape and added some clear glitter pen on top to give a little sparkle. I didn't want to get to carried away with the glitter, but a little shimmer works with the classic car look.

For the center card's background, I stamped the Route 66 sign with distress ink on to cream card stock. I used the same ink to distress the edges and add to the vintage feel.

Lastly, I stamped a fun sentiment and layered the card on to a vintage themed pattern paper and dark red card base. I also stamped the "Classic" in red to complete the design. I love the way this card turned out and look forward to giving it to someone special!

Crafter's Castle July Challenge -Snow Happy Treat Bags

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog!
I am so happy to be a guest designer for the Crafter's Castle July Challenge sponsored by SheepSki Designs.
For my project I created two super festive treat bags with the Snow Happy digital stamp.

I used the fun snowman digi to create a holiday pattern paper for the fronts of the bags. I love the pastel colors!

To add a little more detail, I created a fun layered tag with glitter paper, a banner, and a sparkly snowman. I adhered it to the top corner and think it looks awesome !

Lastly, I added some iridescent plastic to the inside of the bag. The colors are so pretty and really work with the theme. I can not wait to make more of these bags for Christmas!

You're Stinkin' Awesome

Hi D2BA Friends!
Tasha here sharing a gatefold card created with the adorable new Stinkin' Happy Stamp Set!

The cute skunk and flower images were stamped with D2BA Totally Black ink and cut with the coordinating Skunk die set. I used alcohol markers to color them and added glitter on the flower petals for some sparkle. Love that the die set will work with both new skunk stamp sets!

The colors used were inspired by the cheerful D2BA pattern paper. This plaid print is one of my favorites and I think the colors work great with this little outdoor scene.

For the inside of the card, I stamped "You're So Stinkin' AWESOME" in two different ink colors. This set includes a variety of sentiments and offers some stand alone words to customize your greetings. This is another way to get more use out of one set.

Lastly, I stamped a second skunk and flower in a light-blue ink color to complete the card. The pastel blue pops against the white, but is still light enough to not overpower a handwritten greeting.

Guest DT: Crafter's Castle July Challenge

Hi everyone and welcome back to my blog! 
This year has been flying by and it's already time for another fun crafty challenge from The Crater's Castle Blog. This month's theme is "Christmas in July" and is sponsored by SheepSki Designs!
My Christmas card was created using the super fun "Huddle" Digital Stamp. Penguins are one of my favorite animals and I could not wait to use this digi! Each critter is so cute and I love that they have different winter gear on to make it look like a group picture. The one with glasses is my favorite!

The "Merry Christmas" sentiment used was a stamp I already owned, but I thought the teal ink color worked perfectly with the theme. To add a little more detail, I attached an enamel heart in a coordinating color. I also added some clear glitter to the hats and snow for some sparkle. It's hard to see in the pictures, but it looks so pretty when the light shines on the card!

Lastly, I layered the card on to layers of silver glitter, pink, and blue card stock before adhering it to a white card base. I love this design and can not wait to send it out this Christmas!
