You're a cut above-card-CDD daily


Hi fellow crafters..
Here  to share a fun card I created with one of my favorite stamp sets: Beyond Measure.. 
by Crafting Desert Diva's


Here is the card I created:
I can't seem to get enough of the masking technique and so, was able to get all of these layers stamped onto my card..

how about a few close ups and some details:


First, I stamped my row of apples, then the books starting from the top stack and working my way down.. 


I then added a few pencils, the scissors and my sentiment.. adding the A+ last..

The edge doodling I did free hand using a fine tip black marker, just to add a little detail to the edge of my card.. 

Here is the stamp set I used:
and you can buy it HERE

Thanks for stopping by today..
Till next time

I had so much fun coloring him and adding the winter cap on him.. wanted to focus on Christmas colors ..
How about some close ups:

I added the sentiment Tis the season to be... from the "Tis The Season" set and combined it with the sentiment "Sprinkled with LOVE!" from the Got coffee set.. 

adding the "Merry Christmas" which is also on the Tis The Season sentiment set and so are the holly's..  For the  edge, I used a MS punch.

Isn't this guy just about the cutest?..LOL  I added the candy cane to his cup just to give it that Christmas feel.. I know I like to stir my coffee with a candy cane.. Yum!

Spook-tacular card-PPPR daily

Hi fellow crafters..
I'm here today to share a "spook-tacular" card I created using some of the Halloween themed cutting files from the Pretty Paper, Pretty Ribbon store..

here is the card I created:

Fun in a spooky kind of way..LOL 
 I absolutely love Halloween and I love to create fun Halloween themed projects and cards..

Here are some close ups and details:

I found some cute tombstone sayings online and used some free fonts I have in my stash to add them to the tombstones, just print and cut around edge.. These great tomb stones and the iron gate are in the Haunted Graveyard Cutting File.


I decided my card needed an over sized moon with some spooky bats lurking about :)
I found the perfect images in the Haunted Scenery Cutting File.


I decided it needed a banner and found the perfect one in the Sentiment Spots 5 cutting file.
I did the same as with the tombstones, added some fun fonts, print and then cut around edge..
The grass which was a must have, is in the Flower Assortments Cutting file.

and their you have my Spook-tacular Halloween card..
Thanks for stopping by today..
Till next time..
