Let's Travel Together

Hi!  Here's a little card I plan to enter in TGF's Farm Fresh Friday Pop Challenge.  We're to use a technique to "pop up" our projects so it reminded me of the "spotlight" technique that can be found on Splitcoast Stampers here.  Claudia and Company had a spotlight challenge also that I thought was pretty neat.

I picked TGF's Oliver & Amelia's Journey set because I love they way Amelia is looking at her bear and that's what I wanted to spotlight.  I also popped up the bear and her arm again on the spotlighted piece.  Paper tole technique, I think?

Here's another view.  I liked this technique because I didn't have to color much!  Although my hubby looked at it and gave it a weird look.  What?!  He says it's too artsy.  He likes simple the best which is true I suppose for most things.  But I'd say this is far from artsy.  Geez.

Did you notice my card edge?  Heehee, I just got my PTI edgers die so I had to try it.  Then I also wanted to use the banner die I got to put the sentiment from the Journey set.  I thought I could try to stamp each word of the sentiment in a straight row directly on the banner but kept getting it crooked so finally just stamped it on pink and cut it out to paste on the banner.  The banner is also popped up a bit.  I also used PTI's impression die on the kraft paper.  Amelia is stamped on PTI's rustic white cardstock. 

Thanks for reading and hope you're having a great weekend!

This is so cool, Eva! Something different and very artsy! Love the decorative edge--I'm waiting for my PTI order, too.

What a neat card! All I know is that's a lot of layering and coloring! You picked a very cute stamp! Ha ha, lots of new dies! Looks nice! How do you like the impression plates? Did you have to buy the 2 extra mats? I got my PTI order today. I might need to order again... now I'm thinking I should have gotten the ticket die.

VERY COOL! I love the spotlight technique and you rocked it! Loving the kraft & pink and the impressed background, too.

Wow, this looks so cool Eva! Love all the textures and the shaped edge, the spotlight treatment really puts the focus on Amelia & her teddy...very artsy! :)
Awesome card!

I love this! Adorable, and I do love that pop! I'm tempted to get that edger die especially after seeing your creation!

Snowman gift card holder

Hi!  I was planning to post this last night but I was just too tired to write or think of complete sentences.  It's been a busy week with the boys on Fall break and still trying to finish up a bunch of crafts.  I have been trying to make some crocheted crafts to put in my Etsy shop and finally I'm done with one.  It's a crocheted snowman that can hold a gift card or anything actually that is small enough to fit in the pouch.  The pattern is designed by ChiWei Ranck of One Dog Woof and can be found HERE . Here's the little snowman with his arms folded over in the front to look like he is hugging the card.  I added this fun card that I stamped.  You can definitely add in a gift card too behind this card. The gift card reaches under his nose. This is how the little opening of the pouch looks.  I hope I can make more of these little guys.  These would be so cute for teachers and I think it would be easy to put a little wire through the hat and then use it as

all occasion tags

Hello!  I have more tags to share today.  I kept these simple too to be used on most any occasion.  They have no sentiments on them. I used MFT's cute Birdie Brown Bitty Bears stamp set.  These were on my wish list for a while and I kept going back and forth about purchasing them especially because I wanted the dies to cut them out too and those were very expensive!  Geez, remember the old days when we used to fussy cut everything out by hand? This is the next 6 tags.  There's also a cute bear with a Santa hat that I didn't include in the photos.  This was a pretty quick project since I kept the bears white!  Not much coloring on these tags but they are still cute and colorful. I thought I was going to be doing more stamping but I've actually gone on to crochet more!  I've made 3 more crochet projects that I'll share soon.  Sometimes I do get the urge to color something but these days it's so much easier to pick up some yarn and my hook and crochet

coffee cup shaped cards

Hi!  I think after this post I may need a little nap!  My right shoulder is actually feeling worn out from all the typing and photo editing I've been doing lately.  And this cooler weather is making me drowsy.  It's getting cold here already! I made a bunch of these coffee shaped cards using a die from Honey Bee Stamps .  It's a cute coffee set but the die is extra long so it would probably help to have a longer platform to diecut.  I just have the standard sized one so I would pass it through once in my Big Shot and then rotate the cardstock and die carefully to cut the other end.  Manageable but the longer platform would be more convenient! I embossed the front of the card with some pretty snowflakes.  I think this is a Sizzix embossing folder.  And then stamped the coffee sleeve with some Lawn Fawn stamps. This is the inside.  The gift card slot does not come with this coffee cup die set.  I cut that opening with one of the dies from MFT's gift card dies.
