Penny Black Pansy Bouquet Card

 Hello friends.  Today's card was created with a Penny Black wood mounted rubber stamp.  The name on the stamp is Pansy Bouquet.  The stamp is so pretty.  For coloring inspiration, I googled "Pansies" for some ideas on how to color these sweet flowers.
 Pansies are a french word meaning thought or remembrance.  This card is going in my stash for when I want to let someone know I am thinking of them.  The stamped image was cut out on my Brother Cut N Scan.  I love that machine-it cuts a perfect border around the stamp.  The image was then mounted on a Spellbinders Lacy Circle and again on a Joy! Craft Square Frame.  Spellbinders Triple Floral is the next die and the background is a Martha Stewart Pansy Punch Around the Page Punch.
 Wink of Stella was used on the stamped image-you can't see it in the picture.  It was the first time I used it.  I still think I love and prefer Stickles.  For the corner adornment, just the pansy was cut out and mounted on a Cottage Cutz leaf die. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have more projects to share this week.  Be sure to check back soon.  Until next time......Happy Crafting!

Baby Shower Decorations

Greetings everyone! Back today with the last of the Shower decorations and a few pictures of the Baby Shower.  This banner was created on the Cricut with Mother's Day Floral Bouquet and Fontastic Fonts cartridge.  A fun project and here are all the banners that I made:
 Here is the banner that says Sweet Baby Girl outside the food tent.
The other banner with "Emma" was inside the tent.  This is how the decorations from previous post on my blog were set up.  I created the cake and placed Rosettes in the center that I made as the cake topper.  The cake plate is the type you can thread ribbon through to match your cake.  I tied tulle to make a tutu on the base....super cute.
 Here is the back yard before the guest arrived.  It was so pretty.  There were tiki torches for the evening.    If you would like to see more details and get products used, there are two videos to watch that are attached here.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!

Baby Shower Gable Box Favors

Aren't these gable boxes cute!  Love how they turned out.  These were so fun to make and may I add quick and easy.  The shower is Elephant themes and co-ed so these are for the guys.  You know what?  They are filled with peanuts too!  A great guy snack, right!   lol
 The paper is from JoAnn's and it's a Darice brand in Hot Pink and Turquoise.  I just love the color combination.  The little elephants have Recollection stickers on them.  This gable box die is so useful I can see myself using it again and again for different Holidays.
Thanks so much for stopping by today to view this project.  Sure do appreciate it.  I have more projects to post so be sure to keep checking.  Until next time......Happy Crafting!  Here is a list with links to the dies:

Baby Shower Elephant Centerpiece

Look what's happening at the Hurlock house.  Our family is growing with the addition of a sweet baby girl grand-daughter.  This was created for the shower we were supposed to have, but Emma decided to make her appearance a month early.....lol  The theme is elephants, of course. 
This elephant was created with the Cricut "Everyday Pop-up Card" Cartridge.  Years ago I never thought I would love my cricut so much, but I do.  I'm a die cut girl-but the cricut adds another level to my crafting.
The base is a 4-3/4 x 4-3/4" box from the "Dollar General".  The top of the box was not used.  A green piece of floral foam was glued to the bottom of the box.  The ribbon is from the "Dollar Store".  Tulle was tied with wire and tucked into the foam.  The pink paper picks are from Michael's and they have little half pearls glued to the center.
Here's a look at the back.  Two elephants were made and a straw glued to the center to attach to this box.  Thanks so much for stopping by today to view this project.  I have more cute Baby Shower things to share, so be sure to check back for more soon.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Elizabeth Crafts Daffodil

  Hello Crafters!!!   The Scrapbook Expo was in Orlando this past weekend.  It's an event that happens once a year and I look forward to going to.  While at the Expo I came across the Elizabeth Crafts Designs booth.  I fell in love with all the flower dies and just had to have this Daffodil.
 There's lots of dimension in these gorgeous flowers.  They are easy to make.  I used watercolor paper and distress stains and inks to color the flowers.

 This was so much fun to create.  I have lots of plans in the future for this beautiful die.  To create the sparkly effect diamond stickles were painted on the flowers and allowed to dry.
 Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Be sure to check back as I have a ton of things to share.....I just need to catch up with loading photos.  Until nest time, Happy Crafting!
Here's a list of dies:

CottageCutz Teapot & Teacup with Prima

 This is another card with the CottageCutz Teapot and Teacup die with Prima Tales of You & Me paper.  LOVE that paper.....lol  Although I did this card in blue, this one has a little bit different configuration with dies and embossing.  Along with the Marieanne Designs background dies the Cheery Lynn corner dies were used. 
The roses are created with a Marvy Punch and the edges were distressed with "brushed corduroy" distress ink.  Thanks so much for stopping by to view this creation.  Sure do appreciate it.  Until next time.  Happy Crafting!

Sizzix Fresh Brewed Card

 In honor of a very good friend of mine opening his own Coffee Shop on Monday, I wanted to share this card created with the Sizzix Fresh Brewed die by Tim Holtz.  Let me mention that he is  a wonderful friend and took all my family in during the Hurricane last October when we had no where else to go.  We were teasing him that he could be our middle son.  I am so proud of him and wish him all the best in this new endeavor. 
This is a fun die and I love the sizzix embossing folder that matches it.  This card could be considered masculine with the absences of bows and flowers.    Thanks so much for stopping by today.  Until next time, Happy Crafting.  See you again soon.
