Tutti Designs - Fancy Top Hat

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

Today I'm sharing a New Release die called "Fancy Top Hat
which you can find HERE.

It was a happy little coincidence that I came across these papers the day before this die arrived.
Isn't it a great match? 
It makes up another fun masculine card:
perfect for Father's Day or a birthday.


I cut the die out of the paper, inked the edges, and adhered it with foam tape.
I added some masculine ribbon to the background paper, as well as the hat.
Finally, I added some bling. 


Here's a closer look at the die:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Fancy Pants - Swagger Digital Collection;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;
Ribbon: Striped Grosgrain;
Bling: Crafts - Rhinestones.

Cards and More Shop Blog DT - It's Your Day!

Hello, my friends! 

I'm back with a new project made with products from the Cards and More Shop .

I made a fun little card!
First, I stamped and colored the lovely image from Tiddly Inks.
Then I decorated the card base using the Dutch Doobadoo stencil, 
and purple Distress Ink.
I cut two tags out of purple cardstock.
I stamped the sentiment on one of them,
layered them up, and added twine and a flower.



Here's a closer look at the sweet little tag:


These were the products used from the Cards and More Shop :

Tiddly Inks Stamp - Be My Sunshine


Jane's Doodles Stamp - Birthday Wishes

Tutti Designs - Wedding Car?

Hello, my friends!

It's Monday, and I'm back with a new Tutti Designs share!

When is a Wedding Car just a car?
When you use the Wedding Car Die on a masculine card like this! 
You'll find it HERE.

I think I'll have to put this one away for my husband's birthday!
I really like this kraft and black patterned paper.
The back side is all kraft.
I cut the patterned piece to fit the black card base.
Then I centered the Stitched Oval Die on the back side, and cut it out.
I inked the edges and then adhered both pieces in place on the card front. 
I cut the Wedding Car from black cardstock and adhered it to the center of the oval.
Finally, I added two mini rhinestones to the weels, and three larger rhinestones in the corner. 



Here's a closer look at the fabulous die:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Colorbok Craft Paper - Cosmopolitan;
Ink: Distress Ink - Walnut Stain;

Mustard Seed Faith Challenge - God's Lullabies To Us

Sunday Blessings to you, my friends!

It's time for a new challenge over at Mustard Seed Faith Challenge Blog

The theme this week is "The Psalms as God's Lullabies To Us". 
Peggysue has a short devotional on the subject over on the blog.

I really love that as a description of the Psalms! 
Are you familiar with the Psalms? 
I think Psalm 23 is probably the most well known
but I love them all. 
Several years ago I had to have a major surgery and I was really scared. 
I pulled out my Bible and started reading the Psalms.
It really was a lullaby for me...and calmed all my fears.
I was able to face my surgery with peace.

If you're ever scared, or worried, or feeling alone...
...or if you're just feeling overwhelmed with life and the world today...
...just dig into the Psalms! 
Feel God speaking the Lullaby to you! 

For the challenge this week:

Create a Baby Card / Something With a Psalm as a Lullaby

I used some lovely items from Gecko Galz to create my card.



The image has a little mustard colored bird on it,
just for my friend Annabel! :o)


Materials Used:
Image: Gecko Galz - Baby Mine Digital Collage Set;
Bling: Crafts - Mini Rhinestones;
Seam Binding: My Sewing Stash;
Doily: My Stash.

So head on over to the

There you can meet the rest of the Design Team
and see what they've created for the challenge this week. 

Then check out the simple rules, make something,
and link it up!

I can't wait to see what you make! :o)

The Project Bin - More Fun is Good

Happy Wednesday, my friends!

Today I'm back with another project for The Project Bin!

I'm having some more fun with the Fun Is Good Stamp Set.
You can find it HERE.

I stamped the sentiment on this whimsical paper.
Then I die-cut it out.
I matted the paper on blue cardstock,
and adhered it to a white card base. 
Then I added the sentiment back in place using foam tape.


It doesn't show that much in the photo 
but the blue shows up as a bit of a frame around the quote.
To finish it off, I added a ribbon bow and a scattering of mini rhinestones.


Here's a closer look at the stamped sentiment:


Other Materials Used:
Papers: Reccollections - Cardstock, American Crafts - Color Crush;
Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Labels Six;
Bling: Crafts - Mini Rhinestones;
Ink: Stampin' Up - Real Red;
Ribbon: Offray.
