Cardz TV 3D DT Blog Hop "Anything Goes"







Hello my crafty friends!  Welcome to the Cardz TV 3D DT Blog Hop!  If you came here from Deanna's Blog, you are headed in the right direction.  This is our last challenge for this term.  My daughter just finished the 6th grade yesterday and will be heading to Junior High in the fall.  Gasp!  At the beginning of the school year I try to take a picture of her with her new teacher.  And I always make a card and a special gift for her teacher at the end of the year.

For the card, I used the Cardz TV Stamps "School Days.  I heat embossed the stamp on chalk board paper.   The papers are from Doodlebug.  I used the Stampin' Up! Berry Basket for the basket filled with Ferrero Rocher candies.  For the treat holders I used the WRMK Envelope Punch Board to make the treat holders.  She passed them out to her class yesterday.  I had to make 28.  The papers are also from Doodlebug.

Okay, now for the blog candy!
  
For my blog candy I am giving away a We R Memory Keepers Envelope Punch Board.  There are more things to make with this little tool than just envelopes.  I've made different treat holders with it.  To be entered into my drawing, please be a follower of my blog, and leave me a comment.  You have until midnight MST Sunday May 24th.  I will announce the winner on Monday, May 25th.

The next stop on the hop is my talented friend Rhonda.  In case you get lost along the way, below is our line up.  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I would really love to hear from you!  Have a great weekend!

Cardz TV Stamps DT Challenge #8



Hello my crafty friends! Today starts a new challenge over at Cardz TV.  Our challenge is to create a 3D card for Mother's day.

For my card I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Happy Mother's Day."  I made this card to give to my Aunt who has been like a mother to me.  The paper is from Stampin' Up!  I used the Butterfly Thinlits die from Stampin' Up!, the Bitty Butterfly punch, and the flower from the Itty Bitty Accents punch set.  As for the fold, I'm not sure what this is called.  A friend showed me how to make it, but I'm not sure where it came from to give them credit.  I guess it could be called a Tri-Panel card?

Are you ready to take the challenge?  I hope so!  Just create a 3D Mother's Day card.  Add your creation to Mary's Blog.  You have until noon EST May 14, 2015.  Mary is 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 what you think of this project.  I hope you have a safe and wonderful weekend!

Lots of Hugs,

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!

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)

I know I haven't been posting very often or visiting your blogs lately. I've been having a hard time dealing with my dad's passing.  So much to deal with.  I hope to eventually get back on track.  Please bare with me.

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