Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge #7


Hello my crafty friends!  Today starts another challenge at Cardz TV.  The challenge is to create a 3D project with flowers.

I thought this would be perfect for Mother's Day for my mom.  The sentiment comes from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Mother's Day."  I made the flowers using the Bow Builder punch from Stampin' Up, the little pick was made using the Handpicked framelits.  For the box, I had found this TUTORIAL last year but  never got around to making it, so I decided to do it for this challenge.  I used the Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up on the card stock.  For the garden pick, I used the Handpicked framlelits from Stampin' Up.

What do you think?  Do you think my mom will like it?  Are you ready to take the challenge?  Just create a 3D project with flowers.  Add your project to Mary's Blog by noon EST April 30th.  Mary will be giving away a set of her awesome stamp sets 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!  I hope you have a great weekend!

3D Cardz TV DT Challenge #6

Hello my crafty friends!  Welcome to the 3D Cardz TV DT Challenge!  Our new challenge is to create a home decor project for Spring.

I had this little crate hanging around and decided to use it for my project.  I painted it with white craft paint, bought two little clay pots, and some flowers from Michaels.  The sentiment comes from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Think Spring."  The white circle punch is 1 1/2, the pink scallop circle punch is 2 inches, and the green one is 2 3/8 inches.  I used the Bitty Butterfly punch from Stampin' Up.

Are you ready to take the challenge?  Just create a home decor project for Spring, add your project to Mary's blog.  You have until  noon EST Thursday April 16th to enter.  Mary is giving away a set of her fabulous Cardz TV stamps to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Here Comes Peter Cottontail




Hello my crafty friends!  Have you entered our challenge over at Cardz TV.  Just a reminder, you have until noon EST Thursday April 2nd to enter.

I made these fun little bunnies for a friend who ordered some Easter treats.  I had to make a total of 17.  (My mom ordered 9 of them for the people at her bank, and I need four for some friends.)  The sentiment came from the Cardz TV Stamps set "Easter Blessings."   I used the Fry Box die from Stampin' Up.  I just love this die.  The papers are from Bo Bunny.  I used a 1/2, 3/4, and 1 inch circle punches, the nose is a heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch pack.  For the garden signs I used the From the Garden stamp set and the Handpicked Framelits from Stampin' Up.

What do you think?  I would really love to hear what you think.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Have a great day!

Lots of Hugs,

I love the little Lindt chocolate bunnies.  They are so adorable!  (Even the little lambs and chicks.)  So I decided I wanted to make a little hutch for the bunny.  For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Easter Blessings."  This is a beautiful set.  I love the sentiments and verses.  I used the Hardwood stamp from Stampin' Up for the wood panel look.
Banner - Itty Banner Framelit set (Stampin' Up)
Flowers - Itty Bitty Accents Punch Pack (Stampin' Up)
Butterfly - Bitty Butterfly punch (Stampin' Up)
Branch - Owl Builder Punch (Stampin' Up)

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


Hello my crafty friends and welcome to the 3D Cardz TV DT Challenge for St. Patrick's Day.  This weeks' challenge is to create a treat box or bag for St. Patrick's Day.

I guess mine is sort of a box/bowl.  For the sentiment, I used the Cardz TV Stamps set
                       
 It has lots of fun sayings for St. Patrick's Day.  The patterned paper is from Echo Park, and I used gold shiny paper as a mat.  I used 1 3/8 and 1 1/2 circle punches, and a scallop circle punch.  And of course I used the oh so yummy Hershey Nuggets.

Now it's your turn!  Just create a box or bag for St. Patrick's Day, then enter your project on Mary's blog.  You have until noon EST March 19, 2015 to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create!  Don't forget to stop by the other Design Team members' blogs for more inspiration.

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

Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge # 3

Hello my crafty friends and welcome to the Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge!  Today starts a new challenge.  The challenge is to create an embellished bag for a new baby.  We could either buy a bag or create a bag and embellish it.  I chose to create my bag.

I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Ticket Talk 2."  This set has a lot of fun sayings.  I used double sided paper from Echo Park.  I cut the elephant and the rattle from the Sugar and Spice cartridge.  The elephant was cut at 2 1/2 inches, and the rattle was cut at 1 1/2 inches.  The butterflies were punched using the Stampin' Up Bitty Butterfly punch.  The googly eye came from Michaels.

Now it's your turn!  Come take the challenge with us.  Just embellish or create a gift bag for a new baby.  You have until March 5th to enter your creation.  Mary will be giving away a set of her fabulous stamp sets to the winner.

I wanted to thank those of you who commented on my last post about my dad.  It means so much to me.  It's been a day at a time for me.

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

Cardz TV Challenge #2 3D Valentine Treat Box or Bag





Hello my crafty friends!  Happy Friday and welcome to the Cardz TV 3D DT challenge.  Our challenge was to create a 3D Valentine treat box or bag.  I made these for Christmas for some nurses where my dad was receiving chemotherapy.  A friend had requested some of these for Valentine's Day.

                                                              
I played around with the dimensions and came up with this box to hold Oreos.  I used the "Hugs and Kisses Cardz TV Stamps.  The red Oreos are the winter ones, and the pinkish ones are berry flavored. The cookie and candy paper is from Doodlebug, and the chevron paper is from the Stampin' Up Stacked with Love paper stack.  I used the Stampin' Up  Heart framelit set to make the window in the center, the mini heart punch from the Itty Bitty Punch pack set from Stampin' Up, and the Bow Builder punch from Stampin' Up for the bow.

Now it's your turn!  Just create a treat box or bag for Valentine's Day.  You have until February 19th to enter our challenge.  I can't wait to see what you create!

On a personal note, I haven't been posting on my blog for quite some time.  My dad passed away last month and life just got turned upside down for a while.  So much to do.  I'm sorry I haven't commented on some of your blogs for quite a while.  I hope to get back into some sort of routine soon.  Please be patient with me.

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

Lots of Hugs,
