CC Designs January Review -- Roberto's Rascals

Hello!  Are you freezing out there?  I know the mainland is seriously freezing right now but it's kind of cold here too.  Not nearly as cold I know, but still got my cozy socks on and bundled up at night to sleep.  It's funny though because it looks so sunny outside but the wind is so cold.

Well, it's review time for CC Designs January release.  I made a cute little Valentine's project and I followed this awesome tutorial to make this pop-up box card.  Eunice makes the most awesome and creative projects!

This is my first pop-up card box project.  It's a lot of fun and so much easier to follow Eunice's tutorial.  This image is Roberto's Rascals Blowing Kisses and the sentiment is from Adoring You.  I stamped it on the heart from the Grunge Envelope die which also comes with this super cute mini envelope.  I added a couple of doilies and tissue paper.  The hearts are from the Heart Border die.

Here is a close up.

Here is another view.  This folds flat but I didn't take a photo of it flat!  It still has to be handled with care though especially because of those heart garlands.

The kids went back to school today and now I'm trying to figure out what I should do first.  Maybe more coloring today?

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Wow, you made a terrific pop-up card. I love Eunice's box cards so I am happy that you provided the tutorial. Your creation is just as wonderful as the beauties that Eunice has shown on her blog. I love everything about your Valentine pop-up's perfect! Thank you for sharing your work with me; I really appreciate seeing it.

Yowza! I saw a tutorial on SCS for something similar (maybe it was the same) but I thought it might be too least at this time.

I hope CC realizes what a talented crafter they have on their make all of their images shine!

Ha, yeah, I was going to say too that that looks so complicated to make! Super cute box! Love the garland!
I know, I think we get poor cold tolerance living someplace warm, I sleep in my long pajamas with 2 comforters and a blanket and it's supposedly warm here compared to the rest of the country!

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

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

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.
