Cardz TV 3-D Challenge #6 "Its in the Bag"


Happy Friday my crafty friends!  It's time for another Challenge at Cardz TV.  Can you believe how fast December is going?  It's going way too fast for me!  Anyway, our new challenge is to create a Christmas gift bag.
                             ,
For the sentiment I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Christmas Critter Captions."  This set is so adorable!  I used double sided papers from Doodlebug for the bag.  The bears and stars are stickers from Doodlebug.  The trees were cut using framelits from Sizzix.  I used a mini EK Success punch for the little light bulbs and used a silver metallic Sharpie to color the ends.

Are you ready to join us?  I hope so!  Just make a Christmas gift bag, enter it on Mary's blog.  You have until noon EST December 25th.  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!

Lots of Hugs,

Cookies For Santa


Hello my crafty friends!  I thought I would pop in and share these cookie boxes I made for my aunt to give to her luncheon friends. (I forgot to take pictures of the other ones.  LOL) After messing around with dimensions, this is what I came up with.

The papers are from Doodlebug.  I used the Apothecary Framelits set from Stampin' Up! to make the window.  I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Tiny Tidings" for the "May your holidays be SWEET!" and the "Christmas Joy" for the "Cookies for SANTA!."  And let's not for get the Oreos.

Well, back to making cards, treat holders, and LOTS of shopping!  It has been so nice around the castle, it's been in the upper 50's.  Yesterday afternoon I was able to take my jacket off outside.  The last time I went without a coat outside in December is when I lived in Hawaii.  Crazy!  Friday is supposed to be 61!

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you!

Cardz TV 3D DT Challenge "Tag You're It"

Hello my crafty friends and Happy Black Friday!  I hope you and yours had a wonderful Thanksgiving.  Today starts another challenge over at Cardz TV.  Our challenge is to create 3 tags for Christmas.  We can all use those at this time of year.

For the tree tag and Santa tag, I used Cardz TV stamp set "Tiny Tidings."  For the "from one Flake to another!, I used the "Snow Day" set.  I love these stamps!  There are so many fun ones for Christmas.  For the tree, I used the Stampin' Up! tree punch, the bows were punched with a new EK Success punch.  For the Santa tag I used an EK Success small banner punch, and the Stampin' Up! banner punch.  Santa is a sticker from Doodlebug.  The snowman is a stamp from a stamp set I found at Michaels on clearance.  I punched the top with a 3" scallop circle punch from EK Success.

Now it's your turn!  Just create 3 tags for Christmas.  You have until noon EST Thursday December 11th.  Mary will be giving away a set of her stamps to the winner.  I hope you join us, I would love to see what you create!  Thanks so much for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you.  Have a safe and wonderful weekend!

CTVS 3D DT Challenge "Just For You"


Hello my crafty friends and happy Friday!  Today starts another challenge over at Cardz TV.  Mary gave our 3-D DT a challenge to make a Christmas gift card holder.  Can you believe Christmas is next month????  I usually make a lot of gift card holders every year.  Sometimes it's easier to give a gift card to that hard to shop for person.

For my gift card holder I used the Cardz TV Stamps set "Very Merry" for the "Something for your stocking!"  The "Merry Christmas!" came from the "Tiny Tidings" set.  These sets contain many wonderful sentiments for your holiday projects.  When you open this gift card holder, the top flap pulls up the gift card.  I made it using an EK Success Envelope Punch Board.   Here's a tutorial I found.  The paper came from a 6 x 6 paper pad from Doodlebug.  I used a Fiskars punch for the stocking, a 3-inch scallop circle punch from EK Success, scallop oval punch, small oval punch, word window punch, modern label punch from Stampin' Up!

Now it's your turn to make one.  Just create a Christmas gift card holder, head on over to Cardz TV and add your project.  You have until Noon November 27th to enter.  Mary will be giving away a set of her amazing stamps to the winner.  I can't wait to see what you create!

Thanks so much for stopping by, I would really love to hear from you!  I hope you have a safe and warm wonderful weekend!  Here around the castle it has been very cold.  Brrrr

I've Got My Eyes On You



Hello my crafty friends!  I hope your weekend is going well.  If you are looking for my Cardz TV
3-D "Fun Fold" challenge CLICK HERE.  I wanted to share a little treat holder I made last week.

 I just have to tell you, I love Mary's Cardz TV Stamps!  She has some of the best sentiments.  As soon as I received the new "Frankly Frightful" Halloween set I knew what I wanted to do.  I also used the "Trick or Treat" set for the "Happy Halloween"

The papers are from Doodlebug, and the eyeballs are chocolate with peanut butter inside.  Every year my mom has me make treat holders for the people at her bank.  So I've been making different ones I hope to share with you soon.

Thanks for stopping by, and I hope to hear from you!  Enjoy your weekend!

Lots of Hugs,

It's Friday, and time for another Cardz TV 3-D Challenge!  Our challenge was to make a 3-D card for Halloween.  I love to make Tri-Shutter cards. This one is a little different because it has a bigger panel to write on.                
  
For the "Flying by with a WITCHY hi!" I used the "Oct. 31st" Cardz TV Stamps set.  For the "BOOtiful!" and "YIKES" I used the "More Spooky Sayings" set. The "No tricks, Just Treats!" and "Happy OWL-oween!" came from the "Frankly Frightful" set.  These are all AWESOME sets for Halloween!  The papers, witch, cat, spider, owl, pumpkin, and little Franky are from Doodlebug.  The ghost was cut using the Fun Fall framelit set from Stampin' Up!

Now it's your turn!  Just create a 3-D card for Halloween (Box card, Easel, Stair Step, Side Step or Tri-Shutter etc)  You have until noon EST Thursday October 30th to enter.  Mary will be giving the winner a set of her awesome stamps.  I hope you stop by the blogs of my wonderful DT sisters.  You won't be disappointed!
