Tsunami Rose Design: Tea Party Dessert Cards

Hi everyone! I am here to share my project for Tsunami Rose Designs! This month I used the following Tea Party Desserts and Tea Party Desserts Add On kits to create three cards.
I will start with the first card...which is my favorite...I cut and folded a 5 1/2"x5 1/2" piece of kraft cardstock for my card base. I had leftover piece of printable large enough to frame the base of the card which I adhered along with a doily to the front of the card.

I cut out one of the envelopes from the kit, put together and inked the edges before adhering to the bottom corner of the card.

The leftover bits from the flowers, leaves and teapot I had fussy cut I didn't throw these away but crinkled, rolled up, distressed and inked and added as filler in the pocket. Next I filled in blank spots the fussy cut flowers and teapot. I also added the sentiment in the bottom corner of the card.

I added a couple of flowers, lace, pearl sprays and pink thread to finish off these card.

The next card I cut and folded a page from the kit to create the base for the card. I fussy cut the signage/flowers and birthday cake out and added to a doily and patterned cardstock.

I added Stickles to the cake and once dry I added tiny gems to the center of the flowers that are on the cake. I also adhered a flower, some leaves, thread, trim and a birthday sentiment that I had printed from the computer to finish this card off.

The last card I cut and folded a 4"x6" piece of kraft cardstock for the base of my card and added a piece of leftover printable to the base along with a doily. I then adhered a banner and the chocolate image to the card. 

Next I embellished the daisies with buttons, sequins and Dew Drops.  The sentiment I printed from the computer and I finished off the card with a flower,thread and a pearl spray.

The cake and chocolate cards are so easy to put together and only took me about and hour (minus fussy cutting) and now are ready for when I need a card to send to my friends or family. I tend to do all my fussy cutting while watching TV or if I have to wait at the doctor's makes time go quicker ;-)
Below are the links to both of the kits and they are only $5 each and you get so many printables with each kit!

Be sure to stop by the Tsunami Rose Designs Blog for inspiration and join their Facebook group Tsunami Rose Design Fans too. As always if you have any questions about these cards please let me know.
I would like to submit these cards for the following challenges:

Eileen Hull: Mini Cheery Flower Cards

Hi everyone! I am here to share my Inspiration Team project for today. This months theme is cards using Eileen Hull's diecuts. I am always in need of little enclosure cards for gifts and these are some fun cards I came up with.

I started with the Spring Leaves and Heart & Soul Flower diecuts and cut six flowers and six leaves from felt.

Next I cut three Needle Book diecuts from Yellow and Ivory Mini Reserve Dot Cardstock and folded each one in half to create my card base.

Next I back stitched three of the leaves down the center. If you are unfamiliar with how to do  the back stitch you can google or bing to get the directions.

For each of the leaves placed another felt leaf on the backside blanket stitched them together. The blanket stitch directions can also be found on the internet.

 For each of the cards I adhered the flowers and a leaf together.

I added a strip of patterned cardstock to the center of each card.

The center of each flower I glued a button and a mix of sequins, gems and Dew Drops to each.

There you have it! Some bright and cheery cards ready to be added to someone's package! Be sure to hop on over to Eileen Hull's blog to see what the Inspiration Team has created. As always if you have any questions about these cards please let me know.

Also I would like to submit these cards for the following challenge: 

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Tuesday is wonderful and enjoy creating!

Jute Fairy

Hi everyone! I want to share another project I created a few months ago but wasn't able to share until now. I used jute matboard from Crescent and Eileen Hull's Canning Jar 3D item # 658453 (this diecut is retired), Heart and Flower and Spring Leaves diecuts.

I put everything together according to the directions. I shaped the flowers and added buttons to the centers, along with twine and pearl sprays.

The little girl image I printed from the internet and the Fairy Wings I purchased from Altered Pages. I fussy cut everything out.  I added a little crumpled tissue page inside the jar and then I adhered the little girl, wings (I lightly added Stickles to the wings), moss and lace.

I  cut and adhered Gold Cardstock lid, lace and grim trim to the jar.

I am submitting this project for the following challenges:

As always if you haver any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by hope your day awesome and enjoy creating!

Be Merry Card

Hi everyone! I back with a Christmas card I had created this past Summer...I have shared these sporadically the last couple of month...and this is the last of that batch. I am sure I will be creating more later on. 
I folded a 6"x6" piece of cardstock from the Lost and Found Christmas Collection from My Mind's Eye in half to create a base for my card. I cut a piece of gold glitter cardstock to frame the Scalloped Rectangle from Spellbinders and adhered to the front of the card.

The "M" I found at Hobby Lobby on clearance. I painted it white and once dry applied adhesive and sprinkled with glitter.

I cut Be Merry from the same paper collection, punched two small holly leaves which I shaped and adhered to the bottom corner of the "M". I finished the card off with a little red gem.
I am also submitting this card for the following challenge:
As always if you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Jute Halloween Pocket Candy Holder

Hi everyone! Has the weather started cooling off where you live? Here, we are in the lower 80's but the nights are starting to fill more Fall like so it won't be long before I'll be wearing layers and complaining about the cold weather. LOL :-)
Well, I am here today to share a Halloween project I created several months ago but wasn't able to share until now.

Eileen Hull's Inspiration Team had teamed up with Crescent this past Summer and we got to play with samples of Jute Matboard (you can find this in full sheets 32"x40" in custom framing shops art stores). For my project I thought the black jute mat board would make a great Halloween project. 

I started by cutting a Flower Pocket diecut from the jute matboard and from patterned cardstock (to line the inside of the pocket).

I cut the Medallions diecut out twice from patterned cardstock and put together according to the directions. I added thread, twine along with button, sequin and a Dew Drop to the medallion before adhering it to the corner of the pocket.

The other corner I added a jack o lantern sticker from my stash and finished off with sequins, flower, dew drop and thread.

I can either add candy (which I have none on or use it to keep all of my Halloween goodies in one place. :-)
If you have any questions about this project please let me know.

Thanks for stopping by, hope your day is awesome and enjoy creating!
