You're A Star - Stamp Anniething dt post

Hi there!!  Today is my turn to post on the Stamp Anniething blog and I have a fun card to share with you.  You might be able to guess by the name of my blog that I am a dance teacher! ;) so when I saw this sweet image from Paige, Shall We Dance I knew I had to have it!!


 I colored her costume in a traditional ballet pink scheme and then added the blue background to help make the pink stand out more.  The star sequins were something I had in my stash and they fit the color scheme perfectly.  The sentiment is from a Lawn Fawn stamp set.


Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Baby Card - My Scrap Chick dt post

Happy Sunday!!  I have a baby card to share with you that I created for a special somebody in my life using some fun files from My Scrap Chick.



for my card I used the My Scrap Chick "Onesie Girls Tutu Easel Card".  I chose this card file because my friend is having a girl and she is also a dance teacher.  We were coworkers for many years and she has even taught one of my kiddos.


Since I am mailing my card I wanted to create a matching envelope that would allow room for the dimension of my card so I used My Scrap Chick's "Chunkie A2 Envie Fancy" set.  I used the same paper as I did on my card to make them coordinate.


Look!!  Plenty of room for my card and a gift card to go in there too!!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Congratulations - SAT dt post

Hi there!!  Popping in to share a card I created and am sharing over on the Stamp Anniething blog today.  I made this card specifically for a bridal shower I was attending using the Eloise Congratulations stamp.


I used the flower image from the stamp set and embossed it with clear embossing powder to create my background paper for the top portion of my card.  I addded some sparkle to the flowers using my Spectrum Noir clear sparkle pen.


The sentiment is also from the same stamp set.  I used a border die from MFT stamps and added a couple of flowers from my stash to finish off my card.  Thanks so much for stopping by today!!

Christmas in July - My Scrap Chick DT

***For Day 1 of Stamp Anniething Release please head over HERE***


Happy 5th of July!!  I hope you had an enjoyable holiday weekend/celebration my USA friends!!  I am sharing a Christmas in July project I created for My Scrap Chick.  The design team will be showcasing projects centered around Christmas all this week.  I am so glad to be working on some Christmas projects this far in advance as I always have such great intentions in the fall/winter to do so many and then the busyness of the season makes it hard to keep up with my goals!  Anyone else feel that way??  So for my project I created some gift bags -


well 3 of them to be exact ;) 




I had purchased a set of plain, colored gift bags some time ago from a local craft store with the intentions of creating decorated bags.  I used a few different files from My Scrap Chick for the images on the front of my bags.  

I took the images from the front of the "treat boxes" and enlarged them to fit propotionately on the front of the gift bags.  I hope I have inspired you with some holiday projects!  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Tony will be available in the store Friday along with the other 2 stamps we show you  this week!!
`~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~


I decided my "Tony" should be a bit tan from hanging outside on his tree branch ;) so I chose to work with some darker skin tones.  Since he's been hanging out in the sun I decided to give him some bleached hair too!!  I created my sky background with an older cloud stencil I have and some distress inks.  




I hope you enjoyed our July release!

 Have a great day!

Coffee or Tea?? - MSC dt

I just love coffee!!  How about you?  The smell of it makes me feel all warm and cozy and the thought of having a cup of coffee is actually relaxing to me.  I think it is because it feels luxurious to sip on a mug of coffee - as though you have all the time in the world to enjoy and savor this liquid awesome!! Now don't get me wrong, I do like tea too especially warm tea on a cold and rainy afternoon - nothing warms me up better than that!  I also love to collect tea cups and all sorts of tea service.  Which is your favorite - coffee or tea?  Since I love them both I decided to create a project that reflected each and enter them into the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.

Here is my tea inspired card -


I used My Scrap Chick "Teapot Card and Envelope" set to create my card and the coordinating envelope for it.  




This will be my first entry into the 2017 Summer Coffee Lovers Blog Hop - come back later to see my coffee project :-)  Thanks for stopping by today!!

Congrats Grad!! - MSC dt

Tis the season for grad parties!!  We had a special one to attend yesterday and I created a special card and drink tumbler for the grad.


To create my card I used My Scrap Chick's "Girl Grad Emoji Box".  I deleted the layers for the box and only used the layers for the emoji.  I then created an offset and cut two of them to create my card base.  I scored one of the offsets about 1 inch down and adhered the two offsets together with some scor tape.  I added the bling since all the grads like to decorate their caps these days!  I also used some glossy accents to the sunglasses.


For the drink tumbler I used My Scrap Chick's "Grad's With Class" set and cut out vinyl in colors that matched the recipient's school colors.  I then filled the tumbler with money - all in $1 bills!!


School gets out in late June here so I know many of you are past graduation season but I hope I have inspired you for future opportunities.  Thanks for stopping by today!!

#birthday wishes - MSC dt

Happy Tuesday my crafty friends!!  I hope you all had a great Memorial Day weekend and perhaps even got some crafty time in!!  My hubby's birthday was yesterday and I wanted to share with you the card I made for him -


I used My Scrap Chick's "Hashtag Birthday Wishes" file and created a shaped card with it.  I used my Silhouette software and created a large offset of the base layer from the cut file (the gray part of the card).  I cut the offset out twice from some heavy cardstock (110 pound).  Because the offset was long I couldn't weld and make a base for my card in one cut so instead I scored the bottom layer of the card with my Scor Pal at about 1 inch in from the left and used some Scor Tape to adhere the two layers together thus creating my card base.  The photo below shows this more clearly -


I used some bright colored papers to make the card fun and added some balloons which I cut out from My Scrap Chick's "Snowball's Havin' A Ball" file.  I decided to use twine for the string on my balloons and finished up the card with some bright enamel dots and pen stitching using my white gel pen.  




Thanks so much for stopping by today!!  I hope I have inspired you with an idea for the next time you need a birthday card and especially one for a masculine recipient ;)  Hugs!!
