Here is my project
My Winter Cardinal is a file
from Designs By Cloud 9, I believe
it was a freebie!!
I added a strip of brown paper
on the left side of my card to represent
the tree because the branch looked
funny all by itself!!
I embossed the branch and tree with
the Cuttlebug Woodgrain folder and
the blue paper was embossed with a
snowflake folder.
I added lots of stickles in
Xmas Red to the berries
and Crystal to the snowflakes.
I also added Snowflake Embossing Tinsel
to simulate snow.
My sentiment is from
Jaded Blossoms Christmas Wishes stamp set
and the banner if from the Mini Tag dies.
And I hope you noticed that Nana

I am sorry that I just could not get a good picture of
this card, the glitter and shimmer paper are hard to photograph!!
The wise men are from Designs on Cloud Nine.
The sentiment and banner are from My Craft Spot.

For this tag I used a tag shape from the
Silhouette Store and the reindeer is from
SVG Cutting Files.  The banner is from
the SIL store, sorry not sure which stamp is
used for the sentiment!!
And of course the cute face is Peachy Keen.

This tag was cut using a Spellbinders die, some punches
and I think the snowman hat is from a Cricut cart,
not sure which one, I had these cut in a drawer!!
And another cute Peachy face.
I scraplifted this idea from tags

Monsters Inc.

Hello and happy Tuesday!!
Today I have a card to share
that I made for my oldest
grandson's 10th birthday.
 This super fun file was a freebie from
SVG Cutting Files during the "Trixie Hop"
If you have never done one of their hops
then what are you waiting for??
They almost always have some super fun
freebie files.  This one was part of a file
that included Sully and Mike.
I just wanted Mike so I ungrouped and
deleted the pieces I did not want.
I created a card base by making two offsets
and then welding them. I cut a 3rd offset
for my top layer.
Now I wanted my card to fold at the
top of Mike and not the balloon,
so I only included the balloon on the top layer.
I believe the balloon is from Miss Kates Cuttables.
I added a tag and sentiment
using Jaded Blossoms Mini Tag Dies
and Go Wild Stamp set.
I created an internal offset for this inside of
my card.  The sentiment is from Crafty Sprouts.
I even decorated the envelope using some
more stamps from Crafty Sprouts
and My Creative Time dies.
I will be entering this in the following challenges:

Cupcake Birthday

Hello and Happy Sunday
to all my crafty friends.
I have been sitting here
making out my Thanksgiving Menu
and grocery list.  I bought my Turkey
a few days ago, but I forgot several
things, so I have been going over my menu
and making out my list to ensure I don't forget anything!!
We will not celebrate until Friday.  We like
to make it easier for our kids since we are
a "blended family" and on Thanksgiving
our kids have to make several stops,
so whenever we can we celebrate on
a different day.
Anyway enough rambling, I have a birthday
card to share with you today that I
made for my friends baby girl.
She had a "Cupcake" birthday party.
I used quite a few different products for my card.
The adorable little girl is the
Cupcake Girl cutting file from
SVG Cutting Files.
The blue mat was cut with a
Martha Stewart border punch and
the next layer is the Journal Die
from My Creative Time.
I embossed it with a Cuttlebug folder.
My girls cute face is from Peachy Keen
and I covered the icing of the cupcake
with Distress Stickles.  The banner
at the top is also from My Creative Time.

For the inside, the blue mat
is a Spellbinders die,
the next layer is once again
the Journal Die from My Creative Time
and the Sentiment is from
My Creative Time as well.
I added some 3 Girl Jam ribbon
and some glitter tulle.

Their games are on Friday nights

I typed cut each name, sorry I did not
save the file and don't know what font I used!!
I created an offset for the with my cameo.
I added a little doodling and some ribbon
to the handles and they were done.
I filled them with all kinds of fun goodies!!
