A card with a TREAT inside

10 Aug
Hi everyone, I’m here with my post for Joy’s Life.com.
All of us on the design team have all been focusing on how to use the different craft containers that you can find on the Product page on Joy’s Life.com.
So today I am using one of the mixed sized tubes and also some of the sentiments from Sweet Popsicle Puns.
Here is the front of the card.
 
 
A close up of the sentiment on the card front.

 

 

From the side you can see the tube filled with candy..
 
 
When you open the card you can see the surprise inside.

 

 
Doesn’t that make and extra special card?

 

 
I love using the stamps here and there.

 

 

Here is one last look at the card, the cute little girl is from one of my Mary Engelbreit calendar pages.
 

 

All of my papers are from Canvas Corp, ahhh how I love Canvas Corp papers!!!
That is my card for today!  I hope you enjoyed it.

Really wowing you Wednesday!

8 Aug
Since we are fresh off our I Heart {ippity}, blog hop, I really felt like I needed to take it up a notch to WOW you all today!
For my project I am using the sketch on the Chick Challenges with Ippity site.
Here is the Sketch for Chick Challenge #41.
Also on the Unity Opportunity site they have a challenge going on and their challenge is to use the itty bitty {ippity} stamps and I am using the set called, SOMETHING GROOVY to play in that challenge also.
Here is a Gift set made from a draw string bag from STATELINEBAG.COM and inside the bag I have a craft container that is the perfect way to stash some cash for a birthday gift or whatever the occasion requires.
The container is a craft is a craft tube from Joy’s Life Products.com.
Here you can get a better look at how I have assembled the gift bag.
The bag itself measures 4″ x 6″ so instead of sewing the fabric, I used my Beacon Adhesives Fabric-Tac.
The stamped image is laminated and can be removed from the bag and doubles as a bookmark.
Aww…this set has so many fun surprises!!!
I just love everything about it!
I hope you do too!

I Heart {ippity} Wednesday Wowzer

18 Apr
My post is late today as I was awaiting the right amount of sunshine to take my picture.  I had the card all ready to go, when MARMALADE..the neighbors cat decided to come and visit!  OOPS!
Anyhow, I am using this fun sketch from the Chick Challenges blog.
 Here is my take on the sketch.
Lots of stitching on this card.  There are quite a few layers!
I am using the set called We’re Better Together.
I also am using lots of fabulous Vellum and Metallic Foil Board from GRAFIX ARTS.
Are those bees just the cutest little things or what?
One final look.
Thanks for stopping by today and I am on way to link up to the sketch challenge over on the CHICK CHALLENGES blog!  I have used this sketch quite a bit and it is a good one!
Join us..or at least go visit to see all the fabulous entries.

Floral Beauty with Authentique Paper and Cheery Lynn Designs

17 Feb
Today I am using more of the New Release dies.
I have made this colorful floral card.
I am so in love with the paper!
I am using my Scalloped Oval Reflections dies today.
I love using the reflections dies that I have for cards.
I used the Reflections Scalloped Oval to create the background.
 After I cut out 2 different sizes of the oval, only using the die as a 1/2 cut, I ran them through my Big Shot using the Wittle Wicker to emboss the 1/2 oval shapes.
I then cut some of the Mini Flourish Ones out in black and made my own rolled flowers with Judy’s Blooms as my flower base and some Scalloped Oval Stackers for my rolled flowers.
I added some Lace Corner Deco B‘s as the final touch.
If you have not seen all our new release dies, be sure to check them all out here.
Also be sure to check out our current Challenge, PRETTY IN PINK.
By participating, you have the chance to win a $20.00 gift certificate to Cheery Lynn Designs!
Hope you have enjoyed my post today, this has been Jeannie, have a great day.

Extreme Card Making with Cheery Lynn Designs

13 Jan
Today I am sharing a card that I made up in my head.
I am not afraid to make any kind of design, but I lack the engineering skills to make a card like this go smoothly.  It took quite a bit of time and if I make another, I know what I can do to improve this design.
There might be a name for this kind of card, but I have no clue what it is called.
This card is 6 layers and I tried to decorate each layer so that when looking through you could see all the embellishments at one time.  I tried to have the embellishments staggered so nothing overlapped each other.
Since our New Challenge is Beautiful Borders, I used lot of Cheery Lynn Designs borders on each layer.
The best way I can describe this is that it is sort of a shadowbox card.
Here is a side view so you can see how I put it together.
 This is a top looking through view.
I had a ton of fun making this, but next time, I might try to find some directions from someone who has already mastered this!
 My favorite part is my flowers on the front.  The greatest things to me is that when I make my own flowers with the Cheery Lynn Designs flower dies, I can use any kind of paper I want.   The final product is one of a kind, because I chose the design of the flower and the paper to perfectly match what I am making, that is a very GOOD THING to me!!
I hope you have enjoyed this project today, this has been Jeannie DeGruccio from The Polka Cabana with today’s post.
