Cardz TV 3D DT "Spring" Challenge





Happy Friday my crafty friends!  Today starts another challenge for our 3D DT.  The challenge is to create a 3D project for Spring.  I've been so ready for Spring!  I love to see the flowers blooming up everywhere.  So for my project I made this different version of a Box Card that my friend showed me how to make.  I did change up the measurements for the panels.   For the sentiments I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Think Spring."  This is a fun set for Spring.
                                                       
The patterned paper is from Imaginisce, the pink colored paper is Strawberry Slush, and the base is Bo Bunny Sunflower Double Dot paper.  The flowers were stamped and punched using the Petite Petals bundle from Stampin' Up.  I used the Little Leaves Sizzlits from Stampin Up for the stems.  I punched the butterfly with the Stampin Up Bitty Butterfly punch.  I used the Fiskars grass edge punch for the grass.  For the clouds I used the Cloudy Day embossing folder from Stampin' Up, and the Vine Street embossing folder from Stampin' Up.  If you would like to make one of these fun cards, here is the VIDEO.

Now it's your turn.  Just create a 3D project for Spring.  Once your done, head on over to Mary's blog and add your project.  You have until Thursday May 1, 2014 to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome stamps to the winner.  I hope you stop by the other DT ladies' blogs to see their fun Spring projects.  Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you leave a comment to let me know what you think.  Have a great weekend!

Cardz TV 3D DT "Easter" Challenge


Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and it's time for another Cardz TV 3-D DT Challenge.  The theme for our challenge is Easter.  I made these a few weeks ago after a friend shared with me how to make these fun little treat holders.  I used the Cardz TV Stamps sets "Going in Circles", "Easter Punnies", and "Easter Blessings."
                                 
                                                                 
The boxes were made using the WRMK Envelope Punch Board.  I used the Square and Sunburst framelit sets from Stampin' Up to make the windows.  The papers are from Doodlebug.  I used the Word Window, Modern Label, Scallop Circle punch, and the 1 1/4 Circle punch from Stampin' Up.  The larger label punch is from EK Success, and the small egg punch is an old punch I've had for many many years.  And who could forget the chocolate!  The little bunny and chick are from Lindt, the egg is from Cadbury, and the little eggs are from Hershey.  Yummy!  So what do you think?

Are you ready to join our challenge?  Just make a 3-D project for Easter.  You have until noon EST Thursday April 17th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome stamp sets to the winner!  I can't wait to see what you create!  Don't forget to stop by the blogs of the other DT members for more fun projects.

Thank you for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great creative weekend!

Cardz TV 3-D "New Baby" Challenge









 Happy Friday my crafty friends!  Today starts another challenge over at Cardz TV.  The theme for this challenge is a New Baby.  (Picture heavy)   My project was inspired by a friend of mine who shared how to make this kind of card.  (Thanks Ann!)  For the "Jump for joy!" sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Toad-ally Awesome."  For the "So SWEET!" and for the "Big Congrats!" I used the "Ticket Talk 2" set.

The patterned paper is from Recollections.  To create the Onesie on the front, I used the Baby Steps cartridge and cut it at 2 inches for all of the layers. I used stickers mounted to acetate that I mounted to the inside flaps.  I created the bow with the WRMK Envelope Punch Board.  And of course, I used my favorite EK Success photo corner punch.  The scallops were punched using a 2 3/8 and a 2 inch scallop punch.  The white circle is a 1 1/2.  The white circle on the card is 1 3/4, and the yellow scallop punch is 1 3/4.  I located a tutorial in case you want to make one.  I am pretty sure you'll want to.  I know I'll be making more!

Are you ready to join our challenge?  Just create a 3-D project for a new baby.  Then head over to Mary's Blog to enter.  You have until noon EST April 3, 2014 to enter.  Mary will be giving a set of her fabulous stamps to the winner.  I hope you visit the blogs of my Design Team sisters to see what fun projects they have created.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really like to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Happy St. Patrick's Day



Happy St. Patrick's Day my friends!  Are you wearing green?  Here's a card I wanted to share with you that I had made a couple of weeks ago and saved it for today.  The shape of the card was made using Stampin' Up's heart framelits.  The paper for the base is from Reminisce.  I used gold foil paper for the sides, and card stock on top of that.  I ran it through my Big Kick using the Square Lattice embossing folder from Stampin' Up.  The sentiments are from the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  I created the shamrocks using the small heart punch from Stampin' Up, and I created the stem using two oval punches.  I punched the smaller one first, then I punched the larger one around it leaving a small edge and then trimmed it at an angle.  Voila!

I hope your day has started off well!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,
Laura

St. Patrick's Day 3-D Cardz TV DT Challenge #3

Hello my crafty friends!  It's Friday and that means it's time for a Cardz TV 3-D DT Challenge.  Our theme is St. Patrick's Day.  For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "St. Patrick's Day."  I just love this Irish Blessing sentiment.  I used the Stampin' Up Deco Art Framelits to cut the mats.

I used an 8-inch straw wreath and wrapped it with white ribbon.  For the flowers I used the Stampin' Up Spiral Flower Die.  I cut them out with felt.  I used some Recollections pearls for the centers of the flowers, and added some foliage.  What do you think?

Now it's your turn.  All you have to do is make a 3-D project for St. Patrick's Day.  Add it to Mary's blog.  You have until noon EST March 19th.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome Cardz TV Stamps sets.  I hope you check out the other DT member's blogs for more inspiration.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!
