July Blog Hop Inspiration

Hello!!
I'm here to share another entry for the PTI July Blog Hop!!
After I had made and given Irelyn her Coin Purse this morning, the kids decided they wanted to do their own projects!!  =) I thought AWESOME this will keep them occupied for atleast a couple hours!! =) (BONUS it took them 4 hours)
They each picked out their own colors of PTI Felt and they designed and picked out the other dies they wanted to use to decorate the Fronts of their Pockets!! I die cut the New PTI Phone Case Die Set!!  
Papertrey Ink - Phone Case Die
They had a BLAST making these and I gave them each a Blunt Needle to use for the Stitching!! They neither one have ever done anything like this and before so I think for their first projects they turned out AMAZING and I'm sure we will be doing this project again!! =)


THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!!

July Blog Hop Inspiration

Hello and Happy Friday!!
I'm stopping in to share a FUN little Project I've made for the Paper Trey Ink July Blog Hop!!
I've used the PTI Purse Dies and the coordinating PTI Coin Purse Pocket Die Set to create a Sweet Little Coin Purse for my niece!! =)
Papertrey Ink - Coin Purse Die       Papertrey Ink - Coin Purse Pockets Die Collection (set of 4)
I saw this fabric and fell in LOVE!! Isn't it CUTE!!?? I LOVED the colors and the Images!!
I used the Pocket Die to create a Layered Front Pocket and I've used some Iron-On Stabilizer to add to the Fabric along with adding a Felt Layer to make this alittle more STURDY!! I KNOW that Little Girls LOVE their Purses and I wanted to make sure that this was going to hold up to LOTS of abuse by a 4 yr. old!! =) I won't have to worry about it getting ripped or unraveling from LOTS of use!! I added some Brown Sequins and a seed bead to the eyes for a pop of glitz!! I think it really finishes the owl off in style!!

I can't wait to be INSPRED by ALL of the other creations that are going to be shared today on the PTI Blog for the Blog Hop!!  I hope your able to play along!!??
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)

Newton's Nook Designs Inky Paws Challenge #12!! =)

Pin It

Hello and Happy Friday!! =)
I'm stopping in to share the New Newton's Nook Designs Challenge over on the NND Inky Paws Challenge Blog and the FUN card I create for it!!
I LOVE this photo and I would LOVE to be on a BEACH somewhere just relaxing right now!! =)
We have been BUSY with our County Fair this week and I'm ready for a Vacation!!
I thought it would be FUN to create a little Framed Scene for my card do I started by stamping the Frame from the NND Around the House Stamp Set!!  I then cut out the inside of the frame and layered a Wave Image that I stamped and fussy cut from the New NND Beach Party Stamp Set!! I added some sand and one of the Sweet little Sand and Shovel Buckets from the New NND Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp Set!!
I paper pieced it for a realistic look and I LOVE the way it looks!! I also thought it need some Sea Gulls so I took the Image from the New NND Flamingo Stamp Set and stamped them with a second Generation stamp for a more faded image!! I added some Vellum over my Stripped Patterned Background to dull the starkness of them and so I could add my Sentiment!! I stamped it with Versa Mark and then Embossed it using some Ranger Platinum Embossing Powder and I LOVE the way it turned out!!

I hope your Inspired to play along and that you'll go and visit the other DT Blogs for even more INSPIRATION!! THANKS so much for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEKEND!! =)

JustRite Non-Traditional Christmas Card Challenge!! =)

Pin It

HELLO and HAPPY Hump Day!!
I wanted to play along with the New
JustRite Friday Challenge #125 Non-Traditional Christmas!!
We were asked to create a Non-Traditional Colored Christmas Card!! I fell in LOVE with the Spellbinders Build a Wreath Die Set last year and I wanted to create a FUN Holiday Wreath!! I used ALL White for my Wreath and then I covered some of the Pieces with some Rock Candy Distress Glitter!! I think white is a pretty Non-Traditional Color for a Holiday Wreath and I LOVE the look!! I added some White Pearls for some BEAUTIFUL Ornaments and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I die Cut a Spellbinders Frame and layered the Wreath onto it!! I played around with several different backgrounds for this card because I couldn't decide if I wanted a whimsical design or a more regal and clean design!! I ended up using a Wood Grain Embossed Background that I splattered with some Ink in the Turquoise, Bubble Gum Pink, Soft Purple and Vanilla!! Then I took a Glue Pen and added some Glue to each of the splatters and added some of the Rock Candy Distress Glitter to them!! I LOVE the way it came together!! I used Foam Tape to pop up the Panel and then I added a Turquoise Stain Bow and a FUN Vintaj Metal Square and a Turquoise Button that I tied with some White Floss!! I stamped my Sentiment from the JustRite Christmas Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamp Set and my card was finished!!
Christmas Vintage Labels Four Clear Stamps

                        
I was also Inspired by this BEAUTIFUL Image!! I've seen the AWESOME Festive Friday Challenge but I have NEVER had the time to play along!! This week I'm HAPPY to say I have FINALLY been able to play along and I LOVE the way my card turned out!! I think my Wreath is a pretty close match to the one in the photo!! =)



What do you think!! I took a couple pictures of my card both inside and outside so hopefully you could see how BEAUTIFUL it Sparkles in the light!!?? I hope you'll stop by the Just Rite Blog to check out all of the other Creations!! =) THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by and have a FABULOUS WEEK!! '

I've used some really FUN Party Bags from Pebbles as my starting point!! These type of bags are SO FUN to fill with ANYTHING your little heart desires!! =) I then die cut a Stitched Tag Die from Pretty Pink Posh and stamped my Image of Newton from the NEW Newton's Summer Vacation Stamp Set which is available today in the Newton's Nook Designs Store!! I wanted to incorporate some FUN Party Images like his hat and some Confetti and they were stamped from the Newton's Birthday Bash Stamp Set!! I layered my Sentiment too and I LOVE the way it turned out!! I colored my Images using some Colored Pencils and Gamsol!! Then I took a Wink of Stella Clear GLitter Pen and colored over the Party Hat and the Tube for a little added Sparkle and FUN!! The Large Burlap Bow is by My Mind's Eye and I think its the PERFECT way to finish off these Bags!! You could also make your own with little trouble!! =)
For the Second Tag: I used the same Bag and Die for my Tag Base but I stamped and Paper Pieced three of the Sweet little Cupcakes from the Newton's Nook Designs Love al a Carte Stamp Set!! I stamped onto some Glitter Paper for the Cupcake Lining and then some Patterned Paper for the Tops and the Hearts and Fussy Cut everything out and glued it together!! I added some Wink of Stella Glitter Pen in Clear to the Sprinkles and the Hearts after I colored the Sprinkles with my Colored Pencils!!

Hello!!
I can't wait to share this New Newton's Nook Designs Stamp set with you today!! Not that I have Favorites or anything, but this set is probably one of the CUTEST!! =) Newton's Summer Vacation has some FUN Images to create with!!
Don't you agree aren't these FUN!!?? I LOVE ALL of them!!


I wanted to create a Port Hole style design for the front of my card so I started by stamping the Waves from the NND Beach Party Stamp Set that was shared on Tuesday!! I stamped it twice and fussy cut it out to layer it for the base of my Port Hole!!  I paper pieced the Image and used some Wink of Stella Clear Glitter Pen for the Sunglasses!! I added a Die Cut Circle Ring from both Craft Foam and Patterned Paper for my Port Hole and then glued it over the Image!! I LOVE the dimension!! If you wanted you could also create a Shaker Card using the same technique only adding some acetate to the back side of the Port Hole before you glued it over the Image!! I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sequins and a couple Black Gems and my card was finished!!
