Poinsettia Ornament ~ with Cyndy G

Good morning.  Today I am sharing a project from SVG Attic.  I used the Poinsettia 3D Topper from JGW Christmas Botanical to make these beautiful ornaments.  The paper is Maja Designs.  This is beautiful paper from Sweden. 

I decided to go with some different colors with these ornaments.  The blue one is my favorite.  I made these smaller than the original size.  The base of the ornament is about 5" wide.  Thank you for stopping today.

Looky Looky Fishy

Looky Looky Fishy!  I used Grab the Bait Kit to create this card.  So sit back and enjoy the details. Thank you.

This card was a labor of love! I cut the school of fish out 10 times. I layered them to create an area to have the iridescent sequins.

I used Doodlebug Designs cardstock to put this card together.

I do remember how much work shaker cards are but love the outcome.  Hope you do as well!

Fall Shakers

Hiya and happy Sunday :-)

Fall is here! Might not feel like it in some parts of the world, but the calendar says so. Soon the leaves will be dropping every where but first they'll turn with magnificent colors - Oh I can't wait!

To bring you in the mood, I made two cards. They were originally flat cards but I turned them into shakers. Just can't help that urge to make it a bit more challenging.

You'll find both cards in the JGW Harvest Wishes kit and the first one I played with, is the 3 Vintage Pumpkin Card:

For this card, I used AC Cardstock in Oregano, Butterscotch, Apricot and Rouge along with patterned paper from Carta Bella's Collection "Hello Fall"

It is very easy to make such a card into a shaker card if you own a Silhouette Cameo. You simply undo compound path on the pumpkins and make a internal offset of those shapes. You cut these shapes 5-6 times and layer them and glue this shape unto the back piece. Then you take your first made shapes and cut them in acetate. You layer the original pumpkin piece onto the acetate and glue it down. Now you find the glitter and confetti you want to use in the shaker and gently put it into the raised shape and close the pumpkin by gluing the top piece with the acetate onto the raised shape. Voila! 

I sure hope I made sense there!

Next I made (with the exact same procedure) the Leaf Flake Card:

For this I used AC Cardstock in Leaf, Apricot and Rouge along with the patterned paper from Carta Bella. The top panel of the card is cut in Rose Gold Foil Sticker paper (grrrr…..doesn't show well on the picture) and for both cards I used various glitters and glass beads from my stash along with confetti from Nuvo.

Hope you enjoyed my post today - Fall isn't over yet and neither am I, so look forward to more Fall projects from me.

Halloween Fun

Happy Friday! Lisa here from The Relativity of Paper bringing you a few Halloween projects from the JGW Halloween Soiree Collection

 I dressed the BOO up a little bit with Silver Gilding Flakes. I use spray adhesive to add gilding flakes, it works like a treat. I added 3D mounting foam to the back of each letter. I love that I went with a black and white theme. That seems to be the thing in my house right now. I added a piece of vellum to each box. 

Earlier this year I ordered the new Echo Park Paper Kits - Bewitched Collection. I used it for all the projects shown in this post. The easel card is a perfect card base for adding your own embellishments, this card base is a must-have in my book. 

I used the easel card and resized the mat that's included in the file.  The easel card is a perfect card base for adding your own embellishments, this card base is a must-have in my book. 

As always, thanks for joining us!

Perfect Pumpkin Projects

I don't really love fall. 
Here in Salt Lake, it seams like we get 5 days of fall and then winter hits!

But I do love Pumpkin!

So today for SVG Attic I created 2 projects featuring those beautiful pumpkins.

The first project is the Folk Art Pumpkin Patchwork card.

This is such a pretty card. 
If you love quilts or patchwork, Jodi has some beautiful quilt blocks and patchwork images.


The Pumpkin Block 3D Box, is another fun and easy file.
I made mine a little bit smaller and then distressed the edges.

The best part of this project is its made up of three smaller boxes.
The boxes can be filled with small treats or  gift cards.
Tie the boxes together and give as a gift to someone special.

I hope you enjoy these pumpkin projects as much as I have.
Thank you for joining me today.

Trio Birthday Cards with Beth

Hello my crafty friends!  Happy Monday.  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with these three trio cards.
 I really love this side profile sunflower trio card that is part of the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit.  I used papers from Fancy Pants' Time for Spring 6x6 paper pad and wrapped Krazy for Kraft Trendy Twine around it.
 The other two cards are for nephews of mine.  The patterned papers on both are from DCWV's Boyhood stack.  The rocket trio card is from SVG Outta This World kit.  I embellished with Rainbow Glossy Dots and stamped a sentiment from Pretty Cute Stamps' Super Sentiments stamp set.
 The final card is the Baseball Bat Trio Card file and is embellished with Berries Jubilee Trendy Twine and the stamps I used are from Pink and Main's Birthday Wishes stamp set.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Bewitched Cake Stand

Hello (waving enthusiastically) … just sneaking in today to show you a very fun project I've been working on this last week.

I got the idea from a friend who showed me this picture:

First I thought "corny" but then I kept thinking about it and wondering if it could be made in paper. And....yeah it could!

Roaming through files I found that SVG Attic had the right files for it, so I started building.

I wanted mine to be a Halloween inspired Cake Stand and I gathered the files I needed for this: The 3D Witches Boot from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit, the Sunflower 3D Cake Stand from the JGW Sunflower Sunshine kit and the Cats & Pumpkins Hollow Centers Wreath

I also made the Mini-Candy Cauldron also from the JGW Bewitched Botique kit to sit on top of the stand - I would have liked a cupcake but just didn't feel like baking.

This is how it turned out:

It's made from AC Cardstock in Leaf, Black, Melon, Grape, Carrot and Charcoal along with some Purple Pearl Paper, Gold Foiled Cardstock and patterned paper from Doodlebug's Collections "Boos and Brews" and "Booville"

I used the stem part from the Cake Stand to make the legs (just made it a bit longer) and added some glitter tape onto for striped socks. Inside the legs are two 3/4" dowels for support.

The top part of the cake stand is reinforced underneath with 4 platform shaped pieces and the legs are glued unto it with hot glue. I chose to use the Cat and Pumpkin Wreath to place on the top for a fun decoration.

The boots are downsized by 50% to fit the size of the Stand and the legs are glued into them also with hot glue. I added some glas stones into the boots for weight so the whole stand gets more sturdy.

I used twine, various Doodlebug sprinkles and the small patches etc. that comes along with the boots.

For the Cauldron I used gold foiled cardstock for the handle and chose to use the spider tag on which I doodled two small eyes and added a black gem.

Actually it's a pretty easy projects when you think about it - it's all about getting that idea. Thank you Sandy for providing me with it.

Thanks for joining me today - I really hope you like this wacky project. A fun centerpiece on the Halloween table or as decor in the living room….endless possibilities.
