My Sheri Crafts Challenge-Christmas Spirit

Happy Saturday, friends! It's time once again for a new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts! This one should be easy for you because I know you've probably been working on your Christmas projects! This time we want to see your Christmas projects that incorporate an old fashioned or vintage style. I consider this one of my signature styles, so I had a lot of fun making this card for you!

Isn't she just a cutie? In my internet travels I often come across free vintage images to be used in your arts and crafts. I've amassed a large collection of images and thought this sweet little girl would be perfect for an icy and snowy themed card! I love the combination of blues, white, cream and silver here. My favorite thing besides the image is the warm and cozy velvet ribbon. I don't use velvet that often, but I'm going to start!

I hope you'll join us this time over at My Sheri Crafts and link up your vintage style Christmas projects. Hope to see you there! Have a lovely weekend!

JustRite Papercraft November Release

Good morning and welcome to JustRite Papercraft's November release! We have some awesome products for you this month including some stamps and dies! We're condensing our release posts to one day only, so make sure you visit the Justrite blog and the rest of the designers linked later in the post to see all the wonderful inspiration projects we have for you.

This month JustRite is releasing a die set that is the companion to one of my favorite all time stamp sets, Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves. They are called Autumn Leaf dies. They can also be used without the stamps as well.
  I've created an Autumn themed card with this lovely image from The Graphics Fairy and used the Autumn Leaf dies to die cut some leaves from burlap and glittered paper. I've stamped the word 'Autumn' from Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves onto some muslin that I've cut into a long strip and fashioned it into a multi looped bow. I've also decorated the inside:
 I used another die cut leaf and stamped the sentiment and leaves from Shabby Chic Autumn Leaves.

Next up is a card made with the Remember You Are set. It's a very sweet sentiment set that can be used for encouragement cards or just because.

I found some bee themed paper in my stash and used the Bee And Laurel Spellbinders D'Lights dies on my card. The sentiment is surrounded by the laurel wreath and it fits just perfectly! This card is dolled up with some silk ribbon, Austrian crystals, a rhinestone embellishment and some sassy tulle trim! Here's a look at the inside:
I love how this one turned out!

My Sheri Crafts Challenge-Thanksgiving

Happy Saturday and welcome to another edition of the My Sheri Crafts Challenge! It's my week to host and I picked a Thanksgiving theme. Show us whatever you've been working on for Thanksgiving. Any type of project will do;cards,decor,mixed media,whatever! I made this vintage style greeting card.

I found this great vintage Thanksgiving post card online and just had to use him! I think he is just gorgeous! I layered him with seasonal papers from my stash; mostly Authentique.I added a bit of burlap and twine for texture and some fabric leaves I found at my local Micheal's. My finishing touch was a metal button from my button jar! I think he turned out just sweet!

Come over and link up your Thanksgiving projects for a shot at being the next guest designer over at My Sheri Crafts. You have until Friday November 27th to enter. See you there! Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely weekend!

Some Pop Up Cards To Share

Happy Saturday everyone! I hope your weekend is going great. It's been a week since I posted and I don't really know where the time went! I've been busy in the studio and have lots to show you in the coming weeks. Today I'm sharing some neat popup cards I made with Anna Griffin's  Engraved Endearments pop up card kit.The first picture is the front.

 As you open it, the pop up reveals itself
I just adore the blue color scheme! Hydrangeas are one of my favorite flowers. The antique etching style of the elements used here make this card a wonderful choice for fall and winter giving. Here's one more using a different color scheme:

The inside:

Sorry for the not so great picture; the cards have many depth levels and my camera was having a hard time knowing where to focus. These were not that hard to make; the kit comes pre-cut and all you really have to do is mix and match the embellishments in a way that pleases you. I'll be back this week with some Thanksgiving cards to share with you. I hope you enjoyed your visit, thanks for stopping over!
