PKS & MCT Co-Hop

***If you are looking for my Easter giveaway. Scroll down to the next post or click HERE.

Welcome to my stop on the final day of the Miss Kate Cuttables and Peachy Keen Stamps Co-Hop. I LOVE both of these companies so I was SO excited for the opportunity to join in this co-hop.

I made 3 little projects to share with you today. Here they are all together.


These two little cuties here are 3" shape cards. I had so much fun with them. I hid the faces and grouped the pieces together and then I used the print and cut feature on the Silhouette Cameo. For the cute chick I used the Chick Holding Egg cut from Miss Kate Cuttables and for the face I used the Happy Lashes 1 1/8 inch faces by Peachy Keen Stamps. The darling bunny is the Rabbit Holding Carrot by MKC and the face is from the Cute and Cuddly 1 1/8 inch face stamps by PKS. The little Happy Easter Sentiment on both of these is from the March 2014 SKOTM.


I thought it would be fun to have the back side of these shape cards be the back of the little critter. By mirroring the image and deleting some of the details and changing which layers were on top of the others I was able to create a pretty convincing little back side. What do you think?


For my last project I made an A2 sized card. I used the Cute Easter Egg svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables. I stamped the sky using the Cloudy Day A2 sized background stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. I also used the Piles of 1" Smiles for the faces and the Baby Easter Bunny stamp set both by PKS. I added some white baker's twine as an accent and I was done.


I hope you've enjoyed to fun. Don't forget to comment on all the participants blogs for your chance at some awesome prizes and to get a  free cutting file for the day.

 

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

Easter GIVEAWAY!

I have a fun Easter giveaway for you. I had these stamps donated for a giveaway quite a while back and the winner never claimed them and they didn't leave contact information for me either so I still have them. They are brand new in the package and are looking to find a loving home. They wouldn't get there before Easter but you could scrap some Easter memories with them or use them for cards and tags next year. All you need to do is leave me a comment and a WAY to CONTACT YOU! I plan on choosing a RANDOM winner at some point on Saturday, April 19th, 2014.

The cute set is Happy Hunting by Emma at My Creative Time.

Good luck! I will be back tomorrow with some fun Easter projects!

Accordion Birthday Card

My sweet husband just celebrated his birthday and I made this card for him. While I was at it I incorporated a couple of my favorite challenges. I followed the sketch at Peachy Keen Stamps and I did the 'no patterned paper' challenge at My Creative Time.

Here is the Peachy Keen Stamps sketch (I'm flipping it to show you how I interpreted the sketch).


Here is my card:


He he, isn't it cute. My husband plays the accordion and so when I saw this cut in the Musical Instruments set, in my Kawaii-a-Bunga Bundle from Lettering Delights, I was thrilled. I decided to use the print and cut feature on it. I printed on some pretty textured American Crafts cardstock. It really gives it a nice texture and look. My accordion is on an Action Wobble and looks pretty darn cute wobbling around. I stamped it with a Boy Mates Face stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. The sentiment and music notes come from My Creative Time's, Wow! So Many Candles stamp set. The card base itself was cut using My Creative Time's 4x4 Journal Die + More die set.

The card was a success here. I hope you like it too!


Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

April Showers Bring...

I wanted to share a mini sized card (3"x4") that I made to fit a gift card for Easter inside.

I made this up with the color/photo challenge at Peachy Keen Stamps in mind. The colors and picture just reminded me of spring in its sweet subtle pastel colors. What pretty inspiration:


This is what I came up with. A cute little chickie with her umbrella.


I used the following items to make this: Peachy Keen Stamps - CottageCutz Shower Peepers Dies and stamps. I also used the PK-107 Cloudy Day stamp by Peachy Keen Stamps. For the card base I made a shape card out of My Creative Time's Stitched 3x4 Journal Die and I also used the Stitched Grass Die as well.

Have a great day! Hugs- Glora

Wishing You Brighter Days

This card came together in minutes. I love that about Emma's products. I needed a quick card to put a gift card in for a friend going through some rough times. I kept it plan and SIMPLE. No frills at all but they loved it!


Here is what it looked like when it was opened up. The only thing that ended up different was that I added a little note for them.


Like I said simple and easy but it served its purpose beautifully.

I used Emma's Surprise Pop Out Card along with the Stitched Gift Card Pocket die and last of all the sentiment came from Treasured Moments

Plane and Simple Thank You!

I just LOVE My Creative Time products. They carry such a PUNCH! Here is a thank you card that I made using only My Creative Time products.


Isn't that paper airplane sweet? I love it.


I used the following My Creative Time items: Fly Away with Me Sentiments (for the Thank You!), Plane and Simple (for the plane & simple...), Fun Stitched Edges (for the notebook edges), 4x4 Journal Die + More (for the card base, red piece, blue piece and itty bitty hearts and stars), and Fun Paper Airplane Die (for the airplane die and the stamped stitching). 

I hope you enjoyed my card. Have a terrific day! Hugs- Glora
