                    Hi Everyone

                            I made a lovely card today with the help of Shenna Douglass and Crafter's Companion.

The stamp is called Poinsettia, and I love the fact that you can use the leaves in a variety of ways.

 Crafter's Companion's-Challenge.Blog is having a great contest. All you need to do is make a project using one of there stamps to enter. Pop over and take a look.

December's Theme is Sparkle

This month's prize is the Two Disc Humphrey Christmas Collection, and Three Humphrey Christmas stamp sets of your choice.  

Here are 2 more picture's of the card.

I stamped Gold Metallic card stock with VersaMark and embossed with red and green embossing powder to make the Poinsettia from the Sheena Douglass stamp set. I used pop dots to give the flower a 3-D effect. Then put glitter in the center and the tips of the flower and sprayed it with Spray-Seal-Satin-Varnish so the glitter would stay put. To cut my card stock the  Clever Cut-5-in-1-Paper-Trimmer came in very handy.

I hope you like the card. I had great fun making it.

We have so much fun over at Crafter's Companion. Come over and see all the new things we are doing. There is going to be a Christmas Blog Hop, and prizes, all kinds of fun!!
Check it out.

Thank you for stopping by.

And have a scrappy day.

December Project For Crafter's Companion

                           Hi Everyone

               Can you believe it's  December? I wanted to make something special to give away in a future contest and I saw this on a site called Amazing Paper Grace, pop over and check it out. They have a great step by step tutorial. Thank you for the great project.

                  This project is for the December Crafter's Companion Challenge. The theme this month is Make It Sparkle. How fun is that?
This month's prize is:  The Humphrey the Elephant Christmas Collection CD and three stamp set of your choice from the the Humphrey the Elephant Christmas collection!!!  This new CD collection contains 2 CDs with over 2,500 elements!

I wanted to thank four companies for creating the
wonderful products I used to make this project.

Crafter's Companion
Specialty Paper's Plus

 I started out with text weight parchment paper from

I used white, blue, and green. This type of paper folds
well, goes through the Big Shot machine with ease,
and inks up well.
You still have time to use the 10% off discount coupon.
Just type it in the coupon area, and you will receive 10 % off
all the parchment paper, and you can still get 50 sheets of the gold parchment card stock free.

This is the top of the flower.

Closer view. I am hopeing you can see all the
STICKLES glitter glue. It made every part of the project

This is a top view of the box, with a peek-a-boo center.

So when you put the flower inside, it is seen without opening the box.
I put a small charm inside, but you could put a gift, maybe earrings, or a pin, or a ring.
It would make a great gift box and you don't need to wrap it.

This is the bottom of the box, and the pedestal base.

To make the box and pedestal I used
It is a must, have. This product made it so easy to score.
Also the Ultimate Tool has the pegs to make the bows
 I used on the box and card.

When I had to glue down the lace pieces to the box,
is what I used. It covers the lace evenly, and it gives you a little time to reposition it if need be.

For the card I wanted a sentiment for any occasion.
I went through all my stamps and the one I liked the most was
Especially For You
From the stamp set

I use this stamp set all the time.
Pop over to Crafter's Companion  and check out all
the wonderful stamp sets.

Crafter's Companion has a wonderful Blog and Facebook page.

Make a project and enter the contest.

I hope you enjoyed the project.

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day.

Holiday Theme for November Challenge " VALENTINE'S DAY"

                   Hi everyone

        Today I am making my third card for the November Holiday Challenge.

                             I used Valentine's Day.This is the box.

                              I found the pattern on Free card kits .com . Very easy to print and cut out. I used the Ultimate Tool to score all the flaps.

The Extra Strong Glue Tape was the best, for holding the card  stock together.

                             I pulled out one of my favorite stamp kits.
                              The Fairyopolis Cardmaking Kit                     The fairy is made from the Flower Fairy's Decoupage Sheet.

The little rub-on's are in the set also. I used two stamps, One from the spring collection (Life can be a fairytale) and the other is from the summer collection (Every girl wants to be a fairy). This box would be great for a ring or earrings, or candy, or maybe a corsage box with a beautiful flower and a love note. All kinds of things. Just remember good things come in small packages.

The challenge this month was  so much fun. Please come over and join in. Make a project and enter it in the contest.
Just go to November Holiday Challenge and take a look around.

Thank you for stopping by.
And have a scrappy day!
