Welcome Back to School Project

Hi! Last weekend we had a Back to School Facebook Fan page hop for KaDoodle Bug Designs and Too Cute by Jessica. The DT made some amazing projects!!  Thank you to all who stopped by and left some love on all of our pages. 

Here is my creations for the hop.

I created the cute little worm and chalkboard card from Feelin' Nerdy Bears: Too Cute By Jessica.

For the little worm, I used Peachy Keen's Erkle and Merkle Face Assortment. For his glasses I used a retired PK set called Accessories Assortment One. I then filled in the glasses with Glossy Accents. I outlined the worm body with green Color Box ink.

I added Gelly Roll Clear Star faux pen stitching to the outside edges of the card. The little stars are from a die cut from My Creative Time and I added a sequin on top. The ribbon I purchased from A.C. Moore.

I picked these adorable little pencil candy holder's up at A.C. Moore a few months ago and thought they would be perfect for this project. They are filled with skittles since I thought the "s" would be appropriate for school.

The tag is also from a My Creative Time Die cut. I did the worm exactly the same and put him on an apple this time. The apple comes from Apple Shaped Card: KaDoodleBug Designs. I removed the worm hole and the thank you from it. I had to put the stem and leaf low so it wouldn't cover the worm up. Even though it doesn't show well in the picture, I too, added clear star faux stitching to the apples. 

For the sentiment, I printed it out on "Word" and cut it out with a Dienamics die cut.

Right now both sites KaDoodle Bug Designs and Too Cute by Jessica are having a 50% off sale with no minimum purchase required. That is an amazing deal!! So please head on over and check out both of their amazing files!!

Peachy Keen Card Challenge: Sympathy

Hi! It has been a bit since I've posted on blogger! I had a lovely few weeks visiting family in the Midwest and decided to take a computer break. It was so great getting to have face to face conversations and not be glued to my Ipad or computer. 

Well now that I'm back it is time to get back into the swing of things in the crafting world. Today, we have a new challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps. It is a Just Cards Challenge and you are to make a sympathy card. 

So here is my sweet but simple card:

The little kitty cat comes from PK-289 Misty Sue and Colby Cheer Up. I stamped and paper pieced the body. I then stamped the image onto the oval and colored in the flowers with Copic Markers. 

The sentiment comes from PK-159 Thinking of You Bear. I stamped the sentiment onto a die cut that comes from My Creative Time.

The flower comes from PK-208 Hey Baby. I stamped and paper pieced the flower. I then used a light blue ink on the edges and added little blue pearls to the center.

I cut the oval and scallop oval out using spellbinders dies. I inked the edges with the light blue ink as well. The pearls on the scallop edge are from Recollections.

The paper comes from Basic Grey's Fiction 6x6 paper pad.

I finished by adding a ribbon accent to the side. The ribbon is from Celebrate 360.
