Gift Bag

Hello Fellow Crafters, hope your all having a good weekend. Today I made an altered gift bag to join  Peachy Keens Challenge 26 Gift Bag.


I used the 1 3/8th face stamps from Peachy Keen's 460-Happy Lashes Assortment and 486-Stitches Face Assortment for the cute flowers. 

I used an action wobble on the top flower. I love using action wobbles on projects, there so much fun:) 

The pretty lace punch is from Martha Stewart, sorry I can't remember the name of the punch. The tag was cut with my Cuttle Bug using Emma's My Creative Time  die from the "Teeny Tag Greetings" set and I used Emma's "Celebrate Good Times" set for the sentiment. 

If you have time, be sure to join in on the fun at Peachy Keen's  Gift Bag Challenge:)

Card made with Chalks

Hello fellow crafters, I just finished making my card to enter in Peachy keens Chalk-it-up Challenge. Here are a couple of pictures of how my card came together. I used Peachy Keen's Faceless Corn set and stamped my images on ivory color card stock.
 I used my Inkadinkado chalk sets to add color and make my background. 
I added the birthday wishes sentiment (stamp from My Creative Time Fun Pockets set) to my background. 
I took my easier and a ruler and erased some chalk off from my background to create a checkered background. This is not my original idea, I saw it on youtube and I don't remember from who, sorry, but I really wanted to try it out on my card.  

And finally my completed card:) Isn't the little corn cute, I wanted to make it seem like it was popping out of the pocket to say surprise! :)lol. I know you can't tell from the picture but I added glossy accents to the cute little corn. 

Heres a picture of the inside of my card.

Cup Cake Gift Card Tag Holder

Hello Fellow crafters: ) Today I have a tag that I made for Peachy Keens Color Challenge
Here's the color inspiration chart 
I just got my Creative Time "Celebrate Good Times Stamp" set and I really wanted to use the cute little cup cake die that comes in the set. Here's what I came up with. I used Peachy Keen's Cherub assortment set. 
I had seen a cute tag similar to the one I made on My Creative Time. It had a cute little pocket and I thought I could make one and use it as a gift card holder. I used My Creative Time's Tag Dies for my tag. 
Side View 

How cute is this tag, with the little Happy Birthday to you tiny tag! I'm going to be making more of these cute tags in the future.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
