Frame-It Train for Dylan

Happy Sunday!

Today I have a card that I made for my friend Stacey's son's 3rd birthday.  I actually made the card in September, so this is another post I am lax in getting around to.

I used the Creations by AR Frame-It Train Card template for this adorable card.  Dylan loves Thomas the Train and the picture in the frame was taken when he visited Thomas.

Supplies used:  Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Metallic Silver, Real Red, and Whisper White CS.

The 'Dylan' and 'Happy Birthday' train fonts are free downloads.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Gift and a Blog Award

Happy Thursday and Happy Thanksgiving!

I am lax in making this posting.  As today is Thanksgiving, I didn't want another day to go by without giving thanks to Diana.

Here is the adorable Acorn Treat Box (it was filled with  yummy truffles!) that she made:

Diana also nominated me for a blog award:

Thank you Diana!

IBSIC #35 - Ornament Easel Card

Happy Tuesday!

Today I have a card I created for Inspired by Stamping Inspiration Challenge #35.  Actually, I have two cards (more on that later in the post!).

Here is the inspiration photo:

And, here is my Ornament Easel card:

The 'Joy' stamp is from an Easter set and the 'Noel' was created with an Alphabet set. 

Supplies used:  Brushed Gold, Certainly Celery, and Pink Pirouette CS, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink Ink, Emboss It and Gold EP, Petals a Plenty EF, Spellbinders Oval, Poinsettia, and Scalloped Oval Dies, Rhinestones, Eucalyptus and Glam Pink Stickles, IBS Seam Binding, and IBS Easter and Fancy Alphabet Stamp Sets.

As I said earlier in this post, I had made two cards.  Well, I looked at the challenge when it was posted and thought about what type of card to make.  It was a day or two later that I went to my craft room to actually make the card.  Yesterday, as I was preparing to post the card, I realized the challenge was to use gold, pink, and white.  I had used pink and silver!  Back to the craft room I went to start over!  That's my story, sad but true.

So, I thought I would share the first card anyway:

Supplies used:  Certainly Silver, Pink Pirouette, and Silver CS, Certainly Celery and Pretty in Pink Ink, Emboss It and Silver EP, Petals a Plenty EF, Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three, Oval, and Poinsettia Dies, Rhinestones, Eucalyptus and Glam Pink Stickles,  IBS Seam Binding, and IBS Easter and Fancy Alphabet Stamp Sets.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you got a laugh out of my goof.  Lesson learned, read and re-read!

Happy crafting!

Creations by AR Christmas Customer Blog Hop

Happy Saturday!

Welcome to the Creations by AR (Adela Rossol) Christmas Customer Blog Hop.  I am stop number one and there is a total of nine stops (see list below). 

For today's hop I used the Gourmet Take Out Set.  This is a set of two templates, tall and short. 

First up is a picture of the front of my boxes side by side:

Here are all four sides of the tall box:

Each side is different, yet similar.  I really like the Ho, Ho, Ho, Merry Christmas theme.

And, all four sides of the short box:

Lastly, a picture of the top of the boxes:

Please see end of post for supply list.

The Gourmet Take Out Set is so cute and easy to assemble.  Adela's templates come in PDF (for those of you like myself that hand-cut templates) and cut file (for those of you lucky enough to have an electronic cutter).

Now, what would a blog hop be without a prize?  One random commentor will win a $5.00 gift certificate to Creations by AR.  Comments will close at midnight (Eastern Time) on Monday, November 19 and the blog hop winner will be announced Tuesday, November 20 on the Creations by AR Facebook Page and on my blog.

Happy Sunday!

I was not chosen for a position on the Heartfelt Creations Design Team.  I was very honored to have made it as a semi-finalist and I thank everyone who voted for me.  Though I am disappointed not to have made the DT, I am more upset not having received any communication from HC. 

Today I am sharing the card and 3D project that I submitted to HC for the final round.

First up is an easel card (finished size 5 1/2 x 5 1/2):

Supplies used:  Bazzill CS, HC Classic Editions Paper, Staz-On Timber Brown and Versafine Vintage Sepia Inks, HC Falling Leaves Dies, HC Open Falling Leaves Stamps, Champagne Shimmer Mist, and Burlap.

Next is a luminary:

The inside is finished with the same paper as the outside:

Supplies used:  Bazzill CS, HC Classic Edition Paper, Staz-On Timber Brown Ink, HC Falling Leaves Dies, HC Open Falling Leaves Stamps, Champagne Shimmer Mist, Prima Tea Thyme Crystals, and Vellum. 

Perhaps I will see my creations on display at StampFest in February.

Thanks for stopping by!

CFC #9 - Birthday Quadruple Easel Card

Happy Friday!

I hope everyone had a happy and safe Halloween.  There was a 6:00 PM trick or treating curfew here, so we didn't have any big kids, just the little cuties.  Clean-up and repairs are on-going, there are long lines at the gas stations with police controlling things as the stations run out, but slowly life is returning to normal.  It was good to hear a few trains running again and some planes flying.  Sadly, the death toll from Sandy has risen.  The destruction and devastation in NY and NJ are unbelievable, but I think we were lucky.  I still think back to Katrina and Andrew, and cannot begin to imagine what LA and FL went through with those storms. 

Today I have a Birthday Quadruple Easel Card for Crafty Friends Challenge #9 - All Things Glitz and Glam.

Supplies used:  Certainly Celery, Pretty in Pink, and So Saffron CS and DSP, Pretty in Pink Ink, Marianne, Sizzix, and Spellbinder Dies, MS and SU Punches, CTMH and SU Pearls and Rhinestones, and OCL and SU Stamps.
