Wintry Fun...

Hello Fellow Crafters,

We are having such a blast of Wintry weather pass through here in Texas and the East Coast. It gives me sweet memories of my trip to Lake Tahoe with all its lovely wintry picture perfect landscapes. Snow can look so beautiful and I prefer to enjoy it on pictures and television.

Today I want to share a fun Wintry Card I made with an adorable 3D Snow Family Decoupage kit that comes in Sherri's White Christmas CD.  
   I chose to create a beautiful winter scene for my Snow Family

I also used for my background one of the Design Paper pages from the Dear Santa Printable Paper packs. The pink and white design which I dry embossed and layered with loose snow glitter. I also brushed a light layer of Snow Glitter paste on the Snow Family.
I hope you enjoyed your visit. Until next time Happy Crafting.

I'm Off to See the Wizard...with Besties of Oz

Hello Fellow Crafters,
I am so excited to share my fun with one of the New Release precolored printable images from a new Collection of Besties of Oz by Sherri Baldy. Along with some new single sold Besties of Oz Collection Design Papers. You can find them HERE.

I am also using a couple of Single sold Design Paper pages you can purchase from the Besties of Oz Design Paper Collection. I used Oz blue design with white dots  and Oz Music for my background to feature the adorable colored printable Tin Girl. I distressed one of the design papers with glitter and the other I embossed with a Cuttlebug Hearts folder and distressed with blue ink.  The adorable colored printable Tin Girl I added touches of Martha Stewart glitter.

Besties Oz Music

I also made a special tag to go with the card using one of the Precolored Printable images to make a set for a special friend. I simply cut her out with scissors and glued her on. I always love using Cuttlebug/Provocrat Heart embossed folder. I ink distressed the Besties Oz Music single sold design paper in blues and amber colored inks.

New Month...New Year with My Besties 3D and More

Happy New Year My Fellow Crafters,

I love the Minions among so many other things...they make me smile.  I want to wish you all a Happy New Year may it overflow with good health, love, joy and laughter as we are given new opportunities, new adventures, new hope and new ways to share our love.

It is January 2nd here in the United States and I am happy to start the year announcing January's Monthly Challenge with My Besties 3D and More. The THEME is always Anything Goes with a My Besties image and I love to share when I say "and More" that there is such a fun assortment of image styles you can play with. For instance: 3D Decoupage SheetsPre-colored PrintablesDigital imagesRubber Stamps and More. I invite you to visit the My Besties Shop  or Sherri Baldy's Etsy Store to see what Sherri Baldy Designs has for you to have fun with.

My project for this Challenge inspiration is an easel card featuring a colored Printable Dec bk 9 sheet I made into a 3D image with the beautiful background papers from digital Berry Blossom 3D kit. I had fun print the flower frame in two sizes and cutting them out with scissors. I also used my Spellbinders Heart and Scalloped heart Nestabilities dies to make embellishments. The sweet sentiment by is stamped on  Berry Blossom paper element I cut into a tag and embellished with miniatures flowers from my stash.  You can find more fun My Besties 3D Decoupage kits HERE
