Christmas Tag Swap

Image
These tags are for a tag swap sponsored by Maymay Made It.

All tags were cut with the Cricut Explore and embellished with scraps and goodies in my stash.








I had a lot of fun making these.

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.






First Shaker Card

Image
This is a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card.  Used the  Cricut Explore to cut, score, slice out the heart shape and write on the card.  I used a Cuttlebug Swiss dot embossing folder and some ribbon from my stash.

The acetate is from some packaging.  Getting the foam tape the right height and adding the glitter and sequins was a little tricky.  Now I know what to do, hopefully the next one is a little easier.

My folks have been married for 55 years!

Have a great day.  Make it a crafty one.

Had so much fun making this card for a swap! This is a 5 x 7 card with a black mat.

The purple spider web paper is from my stash. The Trick or Treat and bat are from an old DCWV die cut collection.

The shoes and leggings are from a Darice embossing folder.  I embossed 2 sets and cut them out separately to give some dimension.  The shoes are blinged out with a clear Wink of Stella pen and the buckles are silver Stickles.  The shoes are popped  too for more dimension.

Hated to see this one go. . .

Have a great day--  make it a crafty one.





Happy Halloween Card For Swap

Image
This is a 5 x 7 card that is 2 layers.  It has a black mat and a piece of scrap paper from an old collection.  ( I love to use up my scraps!).

The doily is cut in half to fit on the card.  I inked it with Distress Ink in Walnut.  The orange Halloween sticker and bling spiders are from my stash.

My swap partner liked it so that's all that matters.

Have a great day-- make it a crafty one.




Dr. Dreadful Halloween Card

Dr.  Dreadful is one of my favorite characters.  He is one my last remaining scraps from the Graphic 45 Steampunk Spells collection.

The card is 5 x 7.  I used some leftover scrap paper, lace and some metallic cogs.

Dr. Dreadful has a new home, since I used him for a swap.

Have a great day-- make it a crafty one.
