Just For You Gift Tag

Happy Friday everyone, and welcome to another week of 3D Cardz TV crafting fun. Today we are creating 3D gift tags. 
Now I have to admit, this one took a bit of thinking on my part. At first I couldn't wrap my brain around how I was going to create a gift tag that was 3D in nature.  Thank goodness for my Silhouette.  Being able to browse through the store I found several tags that fit the bill when I settled on this one. 
The tag is called 3D chevron tree gift card tag and it is Design ID #52968.
For my sentiments I used two different stamp sets from Cardz TV Stamps:  Simply Said (outside) and Naughty or Nice (inside).
I also wanted to add a bit of color on the inside and chose to use a couple of sequins from the Gear It Up sequins by Crafting Desert Divas.  Even though these were designed for gears/robots I think they worked out pretty well on my gift tag.
And now that you have seen my tag creation for this week's challenge be sure to check out the other wonderful designs and play along with us.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Superman Tissue Box Cover

Well it's been a couple weeks since I told you that I was working on creating a Superman tissue box cover, and finally it is complete.  It took a bit longer to complete because of my limited crafting time lately.  It's like I say, "I might be slow, but I get there eventually".  And this was no exception.
This cover is another one from the DC Comics Super Heroes pattern leaflet - #1779.  It's a leaflet that was published by Leisure Arts back in 1997 and for all the plastic canvas stuff I used to buy back then I'm surprised I never knew this existed.  Thank goodness for ebay and the daily perusals thereof.  Talk about a treasure trove.
There are plenty more designs to be made from this leaflet but I'm going to take a break from them so I can start another project I've been wanting to do.  Oh, and I have to finish an order for some crocheted hats.  Thank goodness for vacation so I can play catch up.
Happy Crafting everyone.

Thanks for Behaving

I was able to get a little paper crafting done this morning before we head off on our vacation.  And after the week I've had I really needed just this little bit of crafty goodness time.
Today I used the print 'n cut feature to create my card.  I love having this capability for those days when time is at a minimum but I still want something cute.  Speaking of cute, I used one of the "things" from the Marjorie Ann Designs file Very Very Merry Christmas.  If you love Dr. Seuss this is a must have file.
My stamped sentiment is from the Jaded Blossom stamp set titled Elf Workshop.

Lookin' Good Owl

I haven't had a lot of time for crafting the past few days.  It's a busy time for me with Annual, Board and Budget meetings.  And unfortunately it'll be that way until the end of the month.  So I'll just have to squeeze that crafting in as I have time.
Today though I do have a card to share.  This one was made using the mustache owl from SVG Cutting Files.  I had this scrap of mustache print paper in my stash and knew it would be perfect as a backdrop for my owl.
Add in a red skittle for the center of my bow and a stamped sentiment from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled You're the Man, and viola, my card is complete.
On the inside of my card I used a stamped sentiment from the Jaded Blossom stamp set titled The World (this was a freebie during one of the stamp releases this year).  The mustaches are also from the Cardz TV Stamps set You're the Man.

Thankgiving Slider Card

It's Friday!  And that means it's time for another Cardz TV Challenge.  This week the 3D Designers are up and this week our challenge was to create a 3D card for Thanksgiving.
For my card I decided to try my hand at making my first ever slider card.  While not 3D without the slider pulled it does become 3D when it is and so I followed that thought process and created my card.  In addition to the slider itself the card is also a regular folded card so it does have an inside as well giving yet another dimension when opened. 
I used the Turkey Slider Card from the Silhouette Design Store (Design ID #100178) to create my card.  Then using a combination of papers from my DCWV House Harvest mat stack I put it all together.
The stamped sentiment is from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled Happy Days.  I also added some skittles using one of each of the following colors: Rudolph Red, Willow, and Sunset Orange.
And now that you've seen my take on this week's challenge be sure to pop on over to Cardz TV and check out the other wonderful designs our team created for you. Then create a 3D card of your own, link up and play along with us.  You have two weeks (until Thanksgiving Day) to play along.

Now I'm going to enter my card into a couple of challenges:

Thank you or Thanksgiving - DoubleClick Connections - Ends November 24

Thanksgiving - DL Art - Ends November 25th

Warning: Grinch Alert

Today I bring you a fun, bah humbuggie card.  This cute Grinch like character is part of the Very Very Merry Christmas file from Marjorie Ann Designs.
Since this Grinch is reading over Santa's naughty and nice list I thought this letters to Santa background paper would be perfect.  It's one of the papers from the Paper Studio's Winter Wonderland mat stack that I found at Hobby Lobby.  I also added some skittles in Grinch Green and black.
For the final touch I used a couple of the stamps from the Jaded Blossom stamp set titled Elf Report Card.

Batman Tissue Box Cover

Since it's the middle of the week I figured today would be the perfect day to take a break from my card making to share with you a tissue box cover I finished over the weekend. 
As I was making my daily perusal of ebay a couple weeks ago I came across a DC Comics Super Heroes pattern leaflet - #1779.  It was published by Leisure Arts back in 1997 so you can only imagine some of the prices I saw for this pattern book.  One seller wanted $40 plus shipping.  YIKES!  Needless to say I didn't pay that much and was fortunate enough to come across an auction that had one bid and was ending in less than hour.  By the time it was all said and done I paid less than $15 - including shipping.
But I had to have this pattern because a couple of my children are big on the whole DC Comic franchise so I thought it would be cool to make some of these as gifts and such.  Now that I'm done with the Batman box I've moved on to Superman so I'll be sharing him soon.
