Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge "Valentine Treat Box or Bag"


Hello my friends and happy Friday!  It's time for a 3D Challenge from our Cardz TV 3D DT.  Our challenge was to create a 3D treat box or bag.

For my treat box, I used the new Cardz TV Stamps set "Love Ya" and "Hugs and Kisses."  Both are perfect sets for Valentine's Day.  To make the boxes, I used the WRMK Envelope Punch Board.  The papers are from Stampin' Up as well as the Sweetheart Punch.  And let's not forget the yummy Hershey's Kisses!

Now it's your turn!  Simply create a Valentine box or bag.  Post a picture and a link to your project on Mary's blog.  You have until noon EST February 18th.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love hearing from you!

Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge #7



Hello my crafty friends!  It's time for our last challenge of the year for the 3D Cardz TV DT.  Where has the time gone?  Before you know it Christmas will be here!  Now for our challenge.  The challenge is to create a Christmas gift bag or box.

For my gift bag I used the wonderful new stamp set called "Glad Tidings."  This is a beautiful  set.  This is definitely a must have in my book.  I made the bag using the Gift Bag Punch Board from Stampin' Up.  I used a 2 inch circle punch and 2 3/8 scallop circle punch.  The tiny holly leaves were punched with a Studio G punch.  The snowflakes were punched with a punch that I've had for many years and topped with rhinestones.

Now it's your turn!  You have until noon EST December 24th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great weekend.

Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge #6 Christmas Tag


Hello my friends!  I hope you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  I had a hard time yesterday because this was the first Thanksgiving without my dad.  Lots of tears.  Anyway, today starts a new Cardz TV Stamps challenge.

Our challenge is to create a tag.  The "Warm Winter Wishes" sentiment is from the "Tiny Tidings" stamp set.  This set has fabulous set.  I just love the sentiments.  The little coffee mug with the reindeer was cut using a Cottage Cutz set.  It even cuts the little marshmallows.  And I just love reindeer.

Now it's your turn.  Just create a 3D tag and enter it on Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST December 10th.   I can't wait to see what you create!

For my sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Thankful For You."  This set has a fun variety of stamps for Thanksgiving.  The papers are from a 6 x 6 Doodlebug stack.  The teddy bear/turkey is from the Teddy Bear Parade.  The bear and it's layers were cut at 3 1/4 inches.  For the sign, I used the Handpicked Framelits from Stampin' Up.  I punched the leaves using an old punch from my ever growing stash.

Now it's your turn to join our challenge! Simply create a 3D Thanksgiving card.  Place it on Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST Thursday November 26th (Thanksgiving) to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome stamps to the winner!

Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge #4 Pumpkin Project



Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday, so that means a new Cardz TV Challenge.  Our challenge was to create a 3D project using pumpkins.  I decided to make a box for Tic Tacs.

I used the Cardz TV Stamps "Let's Face It" for the faces.  This is a fun set with cute little faces.  The sentiment comes from the "Fall Fun" set.  I cut out ovals for the Tic Tac box.  I used chenille stems for the pumpkin stems.  For the little pumpkins, I used a 3/4 x 4 inch piece of cardstock.  I scored them (with the long edge at the top of my score board) at 1, 2, 3.  I added sticky strip to one end, added the Hershey Kiss, and fold over the flap with the sticky strip.  For the pumpkins I used a small oval punch.

Okay, now it's your turn!  Just make a 3D project using pumpkins.  Add it to Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST on Thursday November 12.  Mary will be giving away a set of her wonderful stamps to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create!

I hope you have a fabulous weekend and have a safe and Happy Halloween!  I look forward to setting our clocks back an hour.  Thanks for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!

3D Cardz TV Challenge # 3 Halloween Treat Holder


Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and time for another Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge!  Our challenge is to create a candy wrapper or Halloween treat holder.  Anyone who knows me at all knows I LOVE to make treat holders.  Lol.
 
For my treat holders I used the "Frankly Frightful" and "Trick or Treat" sets.  These are awesome sets for treat holders and cards!  The papers are from Doodlebug and Stampin' Up!  The lamp post is a Doodlebug sticker.  And let's not forget the yummy treats!  My daughter loves the bottle pops so I decided to make a treat holder that would hold them.

Ok, now it's your turn!  Just create a candy wrapper or treat holder for Halloween.  Then add it to Mary'sBlog.  You have until noon EST October 28th, 2015.  I hope you take the challenge and I can't wait to see what you create!

Cardz TV 3D Challenge #2 "Fall Home Decor"

Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday, and today starts a new challenge for our Cardz TV 3D DT.  The challenge is to create a 3D home decor project for fall.
For my project I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Fall Fun."  This is a great set with lots of fun sentiments for fall.  And the pumpkin is cute!  I was recently in a local craft store and saw these glass candy dishes.  I remembered seeing candy corns that weren't the usual orange, yellow and white.  These are Macchiato and Caramel flavored.  They smell amazing!  I added a candle that is twice the size of a tealight to the center.  It really looks pretty at night.

Now it's your turn!  The challenge is to create a 3D home decor project for fall.  Then add it to Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST Thursday October 15th.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by and I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a wonderful weekend.
