Altered Christmas Box

Hi Everyone I am a Guest Designer this month at Craft Hoarders Anonymous. The theme for this weeks challenge is Box It Up!  Your challenge is to create some sort of altered box. You can create a box from scratch, or you can alter a pre-made box. Your box can be made of paper, wood, chipboard, plastic, or metal. As long as you dig into your hoard to decorate a box, you have met the challenge requirements! The box does not have to be used as a box...it can be used as home decor or for any purpose you can imagine. Hope you can hop over to the blog at Craft Hoarders Anonymous and join the fun!

For this challenge I decided to alter a old cell phone box that I was hanging onto, I am so glad I kept it because it was perfect for this challenge.







The materials that I used to alter this box are Graphic 45 Twas The Night Before Christmas. Spellbinders Die Layered Poinsettia. Memory Box Die Fabulous Phlox.  Martha Stewart Punch Branch.

Summertime Love

Hi Everyone hope you are all having a great summer so far. I was chosen as May's winner at Crafting Musketeers and was asked if I wanted to be a GDT member for July's challenge, so of course, I said yes. The theme for this challenge is Summertime.

 I made the first layer for this card from Spellbinders Radiant Rectangles and Design paper is  American Crafts May Berry. Next layer is made from Spellbinders die Decorative Labels Twenty-Eight with a stamped image from JustRite's Black-Eyed Susan Vintage Labels Five. I colored the image using Spectrum Noir markers CT3, CT2 and Copic Markers YG63, BG75, E23, and E47. I also stamped the image on another piece of cardstock and colored using the same markers. I then fussy cut the flowers and pop them up onto the stamped image.  I then glued two flourishes from Sizzix Decorative Flourishes, and added a Bow to the top left corner. In the bottom right corner I stamped a sentiment from the same JustRite set onto Spellbinders Opulent Ovals and popped it up as well. Next I added some butterflies using Cherry-Lynn die Exotic Butterfly small.

Hope you like it! Thanks for stopping by and Happy Crafting!

JustRite Sunflower Card

Hi everyone I am so happy, it feels like Summer has finally arrived. I wanted to share with you today a card that I made for the JustRite Challenge this week.  This weeks challenge is a color inspiration following the pic below.
 
 
 
 
To make this card I used Spellbinders die Reflective Moments for the shape of my card. This die has been on my wish list since it was released and I finally picked it up this weekend at a local Craft store. So Happy!!! Next I added a layer of yellow card stock for my base and then layered that with Spellbinders Basic Lattice die using paper from G45 Sweet Sentiments Collection. (I felt so bad using this paper for lattice but from all the paper I have I didn't have much purple design paper). Next I layered with Spellbinders Opulent Ovals. Then I stamp two Sunflowers from JustRite Stamp Set Sunflowers Vintage Labels Five, (Soo love this set) and colored them using Spectrum Noir markers using colors CT4, GB5, and OR1 for the leaves I used Copic markers BG75 and YG63. Next I stamp out three hydrangeas from JustRite Stamp set Botanical Medallions & Banners. I colored the two lilac with Spectrum Noir markers PL2, LV2, and LV3. I colored the pink one using Copic markers RV21 and R83. I then fussy cut them and layered them. Then I used sentiments from JustRite's Botanical Medallions & Banners and stamped them onto tags made from Spellbinders Vintage Lace Motifs. Ribbon and Charm are from my stash.
