May All Your Wishes Come True

Happy Friday and Good Day to All!
Today is my day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads and I am showcasing some patriotic foil washi tape and square sticky jewels, which is also perfect for the upcoming U.S. holiday (Independence Day).

Here is my Design Team project...
My father-in-law's birthday is the first week of July and I typically make him a birthday card using red, white, and blue colors. This year is no different. The pattern paper is from Pebbles ~ Americana stack.

I used the following sketch from Try Stampin On Tuesday.

The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Sweet Birthday Wishes. I like this one because it has stars inside the o's to match the washi tape.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

Paper Play Sketches #45

Hello Everyone!
Happy Wednesday! Today is going to be a good day becuase I think I am going to take a trip to My Favorite Things in Eustis to spend some gift cards that I recently received. I have a wish list, which should help because I get overwhelmed when I go in the store since I want everything!

Not only is it hump day, but it is also  Paper Play Sketches Day!
This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
At first I thought I was going to struggle with this sketch, but I knew I was up for the challenge. The key was finding the right (background) paper. I used Vintage Bliss by Simple Stories.

The flowers are from MFT Blueprints 12 and the stamped sentiment is Jaded Blossom ~ Sweet Birthday Wishes set. The glitter enamel dots are from Eyelet Outlet and Brads.
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted the sketch.

Stay Creative,

Campin' Critters at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Crafty Friends,
Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stoppping by on Diva Tuesday.

Today is the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva.
This Week's Challenge...
~ Campin' Critters ~

Here is my Design Team project...
When I think of camping I think of a tent  in the woods, under the stars...roughing it (although I prefer a RV with air conditioning and a bathroom). It is too hot and humid to go camping in Florida right now, but we do have a great state park down the road where you will see all type of critters. One of the most popular critters you'd see is the white tailed deer.

I started by cutting my SVG CuttingFiles chunky card base on my Cameo. Then I cut the tent, bear, and moon from Miss Kate Cuttables. I created my watercolor background to look like a night sky and finally added Wink of Glitter for the shimmer. All the pieces except the stars were adhered with foam dots to add dimension.

The sentiment is computer generated and it was cut with a MFT die on the Cuttlebug.

I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Campin' Critterschallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

Stay Creative,

Ombre Thanks

Happy Monday Crafty Friends!

Hubby went back to work, so my daughter and I are home with no major plans. I really need to de-clutter some closets and take a trip to the donation box. Sounds like a good home project.

For today's card I am sharing one of the MFT Camp Create techniques...Remarkable Resist. I enjoyed using embossing powder and watercolors to create the background on the first card, so I figured I would try again. I love all the options since there are so many different background stamps (I even added a few more to my wish list). I used white ZING! embossing powder and created an ombre look with four different shades of blue watercolors. 

Then I cut out the word "thanks" with my Cuttlebug from 5 different colors (light to dark).

I really like this design, so I may do it in a few other shades...red to pink, light to dark purple, oranges or greens. You can never have too many thank you cards in your stash.

 Hope you have a magnificent Monday!
Stay Creative,
Georgiana

Camp Create Day 5 Bonus: Dry Embossing

Happy Father's Day!
We just returned from having lunch at Cody's for Father's Day not to long ago and everyone is now full and content. Hubby is watching US Open and Kels is resting her knee. Her surgery went well and she is recovering nicely. Her follow-up appointment is next week, so we continue to ice and do simple leg lifts until then. I am in my craft room getting ready to create something new. Trying to decide if I should l pull out my watercolors or Colorbursts. Hmmm?  I may even check out the challenges at Paper Playful to see what has been posted the past couple of days.

The other day I participated in Camp Create Day 5 ~ Divine Dry Embossing, but I have had trouble getting a good picture. I tried late at night, then in the middle of yesterday, and finally this morning. Unfortuantely, this is it. I am not sure if the embossing is deep enough, but the first couple of times I added a paper shim and it cut the paper. Then I tried without (maybe I need to try a new embossing pad since that was the only piece I did not trade out). I used the MFT stitched oval scallop edge frame and the eiffel tower dies. 

The Jaded Blossom stamped sentiment was cut with a MFT fishtail flag and those are slate colored skittle by Doubleclick in the upper left corner. The cardstock is MFT Steel Grey and the polka dot vellum was a find in the Walmart clearance section.

Here is the Day 5 Bonus Badge.

I may try again to see if I can get the impression to my satisfaction, but I am glad I at least made an attempt. I hope MFT does some additional Camp Days later this summer like they hinted. Learning something new is always fun.

No Prob-Llama, That It's Your Birthday!

Happy Friday and Good Day to All!
Today is my day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads, so I have some more cute brads to share that became available during the Spring Release.

Here is my Design Team project...
I chose this MFT frame (Blueprints 27), so I could showcase these llama brads in each window.

  I added a piece of bling strip around each square. It is easy to cut to the length that you need.

I cut the balloon on my Cameo and added a piece of black craft thread for the string.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

It's a good day for some cookies...summer themed ones. If You Give a Crafter a Cookie has a new challenge and here is the photo inspiration...

Here is my Design Team project...
After looking at this picture for a few minutes, I decided I wanted to use the sunglasses and I wanted them to be bright colors. Then I used the Wonderful Watercolor technique from MFT Camp Create Day 1 to design my background.  

The stamped sentiment is from Jaded Blossom ~ Encouragement set.
Hope you will join us at If You Give a Crafter a Cookie this week for our "Photo Inspirationchallenge. The other design team members all interpreted the picture differently, so go check it out!
