Young Crafter Unite Challenge #17: Something Sweet


It is the time for another challenge at Young Crafter Unite. The theme is something sweet.  Since it is right before Christmas and I just finished making cookies and gingerbread men.  The first thing came to my mind is holiday treats.

I used Hey, cookie and Sweet home from Neat and Tangled and made a fun and cute holiday card

Glitter Chevron holiday card

It has been really quiet here.  I have been busy preparing for the holidays.  I bet everybody else is too.  I am glad to say I am ready for Christmas.

Today I am playing along Lawnscaping Challenge #48: Make it shine

It was also entered into CFC83: Dashing into the snow, 10 minute's card dash, and Simon Says Merry Christmas Challenge.

Avery Elle December Release Day 5


Hi, everybody, welcome to the release day of Avery Elle release.  I am sharing the projects made with All occasion tag set.


The first is a holiday tag.  I used one of the tag tops and a tree image from Warm wishes set.  Stamps "TO" and "FROM" are from the Blooming Banners set.


The stripped tag topper matches perfectly with the sail of the boat in the Knotty set.  So I stamped the stripped tag on a piece of card stock and tugged it behide the main panel to add some interest.

Avery Elle December Release Day 3


Hi, everybody, welcome to the thrid day of Avery Elle release. The stamp we are featuring today is a punny valentine set - Knotty. 


I die cut the circles from the cork and stamped the knot on my first card.  I arranged the circles in different direction.  The background was stamped with the nordic lines images.  The cork I used is adhesive backed.  I adhered the cork onto the cardstock before die cut . 



My second card used the anchor image.  It was stamped and colored with copics.  I threaded some twine to add some texture.
