Hello Spring

Hello to Spring.....Hello to you and Happy Sunday!

Today I want to show some Easter and Spring projects that I made this last week. Who isn't dying to get out all their Easter and Spring decor right about now and start decorating? I know I'm soooo ready for Spring and Easter always marks the transition from Winter to Spring for me. So I've been busy creating.

First of I want to show the cute Spring Wreath from SnapDragon Snippets that I made using the Flat 3D Daisy instead of the original flower - just to make it more dimensional.

I used AC Cardstock in Lollypop, Cotton Candy, Grass, Oregano, Melon and Sunflower and inked all the edges with Prima Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads. Then I used a black Sharpie to draw the small dot on the centers of the flowers. Finally I tied a pink dottet ribbon on top and that's it. Very very easy to make - and it's so Spring-y.
Next I made the small and adorable 3D Chick Box that I found in the Silhouette Design Store (it is a SVG Attic file though)
Isn't he cute?
I used AC Cardstock in Canary, Dandelion, Caramel, Chocolate and Black and for the wings I used Bazzill Swiss Dot Cardstock in a light yellow.
I inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk ink pads and mounted the wings with yellow heart shaped eyelets. Finally I dotted the little eye with a white Sharpie.
Love this little fellow to bits - and it's a box that you can put treats in!
Last but not least I made an Easter Card

This adorable and fun card is the Bunny Shaker Window Card from SnapDragon Snippets (also available in the Silhouette Design Store Design ID #189097)
For this baby I used AC Cardstock in White, Black, Carrot, Sunflower, Grass, Oregano and Peony and inked all the edges with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads. I used a piece of Acetate from Crafter's Companion as window and filled it with Skittles. Now who wouldn't love to get a card like this one?
And there you have it - the Easter/Spring projects I've been fiddling with this last week and believe me - I ain't done yet!
Thanks for joining me today - hope to see lots of Easter and Spring crafting goodies from you guys!

Rosette Cards with Lisa

Hi and welcome, everyone! Lisa, from The Relativity of Paper, taking over the blog today with a few cards featuring these beautiful Rosette A7 cards.  I started out making one and decided I had to make another card featuring this very unique rosette

 For the Easter card, I used the rosette, label, and banner from this file
I cut the rosette using Authentique 12 x 12 Micro Basics, the label and banner are cut from #110 Neenah cardstock, the Egg is cut from Doodlebug Paper. I used the negative from the egg cutout to add Distress Oxide Wilted Violet to the label to layer the egg over. Finished off with sentiment and a few gems. The egg can be found in the Silhouette Design Store under Snapdragon Snippets - 9 Easter Eggs. All this is layered on an A2 card base. The purple mat is Doodlebug Paper cut to size.

This is the card that started this well, actually, I've been dying to use this paper, MME In Bloom Kit, for a while now and I knew it would pair perfectly with this elegant Rosette Card.

This is the actual A7 card base that is included in the file cut from #110 Neenah Cardstock, matted with MME In Bloom, the labels are black cardstock and MME In Bloom, the rosette was cut from the MME In Bloom along with the circles atop the rosette. I finished it off with a sticker from the kit and black enamel dots.

I hope you'll give these cards a try. I think you will be surprised how easy they come together. 
As always, thanks for joining us.

Bunny Garden

Hello - so glad you want to join me today.
I'm sneaking in to show you a "little" project I made this week. You know when the idea hits, you just gotta go with it - so I did.
I've set my mind to changing up the Carrot 4 pnl 3d Box Fence from SnapDragon Snippets and I thought of changing the carrots to bunnies.

So I grabbed the nose and whiskers from the Bunny Shaker Window Card, the ears from the Bunny 3D Spheres Figure and the eyes from the Bunny Tummy Lip Balm Standing Card and started my project.

I made the Bunnies in White AC Cardstock with ears and nose in Cotton Candy and the eyes and whiskers in black pearl paper. I dotted the eyes and nose with a white Sharpie and inked the edges with a Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink pad in Pastel Brown.
The ears are made as I would for the 3D Spheres Figure, but I cut the bottom of and glued it onto the top of the front segment, filled it with candy and then I closed the box by tying a ribbon around the top segments and made a bow. I did this for all three bunnies.

Then onto the box itself....
It's made from green Bazzill Swiss Dot cardstock and White AC Cardstock and all edges are inked with Ingvild Bloome Chalk Ink Pads in Pastel Brown and Garden Grass. Then all I had to do was follow the instructions from Jodi G. Warners tutorial.

Last but not least I added some Prima flowers onto the fence for that Spring feel.
Hope you like this "little" project as much as I do and thanks for joining me today.

St. Patrick's Day Gift Box

 St.Patrick's day is one of those over looked holidays but I think its a great time to show a little love to those special people in your life.

Tracy from the Idea Closet and for today's project at SVG Attic I made a little treat box using a valentine file,  Heart Ribbon Tied Candy Box, in combination with one of the St. Patrick's Ornaments, Kiss Me.

I resized both files to get a perfect fit. Then cut out the heart box with some pretty green cardstock.

I love all of the Ornaments...I think I have bought every set.
It make the perfect little tag.

Fill the box with some green kisses and tie it all closed with twine.
All the files can be found at Snap Dragon Snippets, SVG Attics, sister site. 
You still have time to make some little gifts to share this week.

Masquerade Box ~ with Cyndy G

Hello today I am sharing with you a beautiful box I made using files from SVG Attic/Snapdragon Snippets.  I used Hex Box with Lid and Masquerade Decorated 3d Mask.  I just love how it turned out.

Hexagon box with masquerade mask on top

I used Graphic 45 Midnight Masquerade Collection.  The colors are so rich and vibrant.
I shrunk the size of the mask so that it would fit on the top of the box.

I added jewels and pearls to the mask and some crystal ribbon around the top of the lid.

St. Patty's Treat Boxes with Beth

Good Wednesday Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here today with these fun St. Patty's treats!
I started with the SnapDragon Snippets Pot O Gold Candy Wrap svg file and used DCWV's Garden Charm and Adhesive Mat stacks to create it.  I filled a small zip top bag with chocolates and adhered it inside the wrap to show through the front.  The finishing touch was a bow of yellow ribbon.
I then created two Gold Coin Boxes using The Paper Studio's Watercolor Daydream double sided paper.  For the top decorative layer, I inked it with Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink and splattered it with water for an oxidized look.  I assembled these boxes with Scotch Tacky glue.
I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Luck & Love for St. Patrick's Day

FTC disclaimer: I received some of these products for free but was not compensated for writing this post. To view my complete disclaimer, click here

St. Patrick's Day is among us! Hello all, I-team member Sonja here with my latest post. Looking at the calendar, I decided to put some of my St. Patrick's day stamps to use. I received a bunch for free a few years back and this is my first time pulling one out. I know shame on me! 

After picking out the two files I wanted to do from SnapDragon Snippets website, I decided the perfect paper to go with these files would be some bright colors from Bazzill Papers. 

 For the card, I used (1) Juicy Pear, (1) Easter Grass, and (1) Flintstone
After cutting the shoe shape out with the Silhouette Cameo 3, I grabbed my Craftwell eBrush to float in some color.

Next I wanted some texture on my shoe so I ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot with a Darice swirl embossing folder.

For the tag, I changed out the sentiment that comes with the file so that I could use my stamp.
Below the photo shows the difference with the embossing powder once heat is started to be applied to the stamp.
 I decided to distress the edges of the tag just to break up the blank space on it.
 Final Projects:

  At the last minute, I decided this card needed a lucky treat bag to go with it!

Materials Used: 

  • Bazzill Papers
    • (2) Juicy Pear
    • (2) Easter Grass
    • (1) Flintstone
  • DCWV Glitzy Glitter
    • (1) Gold
  • SnapDragon Snippets
  • Silhouette Cameo 3
  • Silhouette Studio-Designer Edition
  • Sizzix Big Shot
  • Darice
    • Embossing folder
    • Heat Gun

Hippity Hoppity Easter Time

Happy Sunday :-)
While snow finally covers the ground here in Denmark, there is no denying that Spring is on the way. Yes we got our portion of snow really late this year - but we got it so I'm happy.
We are now in the month of March and this year that means the Easter month. I guess that is why this little fella decided to move in with us - Bunny 3D Spheres Figure from SnapDragon Snippets.

He is made from AC Cardstock in Chocolate and Black along with glitter paper in Pink and Doodlebug Design paper " Easter Parade". The small jewel is from my stash and I dotted his eyes with a white Sharpie. You can find the tutorial for him here
He is so ready to meet all the other Easter creatures around the house and I bet there is going to be some new additions this year too.
Thanks for joining me today - hope your weekend is awesome and that you get a lot of spring crafting done.

Shine Bright with Lisa

Happy Friday, everyone! Lisa, here, and I'm taking over the blog today a few cards featuring this adorable Shamrock Light Bulb file. There are so many things you can do with this one file. It comes with two light bulbs; the one with the shamrock filament and one is just a plain light bulb. So this post started out as St. Patrick's Day cards but I decided I had to make the "Shine Bright" card. I wanted to show how you can use this for more than just St. Patrick's Day. 

For the shaker card I simply used my Silhouette Sketch Pen and cut the center of the shamrock out. I colored the image, carefully, with Zig Pens, cut acetate to adhere to back of image then added 3D mounting foam to the acetate(backside of light bulb panel), poured the gold sprinkles in, adhered to green cardstock that I attached to a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. I used my Silhouette Sketch Pen to create the sentiment and adhered with 3D mounting foam. Finishing off with three green enamel dots. 

This card was a little more work but not much and so worth it, in my opinion. I just added the sentiment by dragging it to the outline of the light bulb so that it snaps to the outline. Then I adjust the font size to fit the project. Now I did remove the outline of the bulb allowing the text to take its place. I then used a few COPIC markers to add color to the image, added googly eyes, layered it onto a green cardstock panel and then a 4.25" x 5.5" card base. 

For my last card, my favorite, I sized the plain bulb down, copy and pasted them, twisting and turning the bulbs creating a background. I die-cut the "shine" word and stamped the word bright using TH Distress Oxide Inks. Finished off with clear sequins. 
So, there you have it, three cards using one file. And I can see more cards being made in the near future. 

As always, thanks for joining us today!
