Stampin Up Artisan Blog Hop- Scary Treat Box

Wednesday, October 22

Welcome to this weeks Artisan Design Team Blog Hop!
As I mentioned a couple weeks ago I was backward through the holidays so tonight I have something a little spooky to share. Lol!

 

We were lucky enough to get the Seasonal Snapshot Journaling Cards in our boxes this month so I thought it would be fun to make a little treat box. The cards are a nice weight for this kind of project so I just took one of the 4 x 6 cards and scored at 2 1/2" on the long side & 1" on the short side. I found these cool glittered spider rings at the local party store & I just snipped of the ring part & hot glued it to my box. Then I just fussy cut the "scary" from another of the journaling cards & attached it with dimensionals.

Well that's all I have so lets jump on over to see what Sarah has cooked up today!

Stampin' Up! Artisan Blog Hop- Chalkboard Banner

Wednesday, October 15

Welcome to this weeks blog hop! Today we get to show off the projects that will be shared on Stampin Up's Facebook page this week. So here is my little creation-
 

I LOVE LOVE LOVE chalkboard art & would be elated if I had some mad hand lettering skillz but unfortunately I am horrible at it so when I saw the "I'm Thankful For" stamp I knew exactly what I wanted to create...Faux Chalkboard Art! I grabbed the chalkboard banner kit & my white craft ink & TA-DA! All I needed to do next was use my Pumpkin Pie reinker to dye some seam binding & now I have this little beauty hanging by my desk & I just love it so much. Hope you give a little Faux Chalboard Art a try!
Let's head over to visit Sarah, I'm sure she has something fun to share with us!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Blog Hop- Merry Christmas

Wednesday, October 8

Yep I'm just gonna pass by all the other holidays and jump straight to Christmas, lol!
Thanks for joining us this week!
 
 
Well I have to admit my uber talented friend Cindy Schuster inspired this card! She made the most beautiful card for the Convention displays that paired these two stamp sets. Isn't she clever?!
I kept my card pretty simple but I did add a touch of stitching to jazz it up a little.
Thanks again for stopping by now it's time to hop on over to visit Sarah!

Stampin Up Artisan Design Team Blog Hop- Holiday Home

Wednesday, October 1

 
Welcome to our first hop of the month of October! Crazy, right? The holidays will be upon us before we can blink. Yikes!
Well that means its time to start getting a stockpile of cards ready to go out! Aren't these little houses adorbs! I made them even cuter by coloring them with my Blendabilities markers. I also wanted the trim on the Coastal Cabana house to be white so I carefully went in with my white gel pen to add that in.
So that's all I have for you so lets go visit the fabulous Sarah Sagert-

Mickey Rosettes

Sunday, September 28

Just had to share really quick...
So when I made my Frightful Wreath instead of using the giant rosette I cut it up to make 4.


To do that you will cut the long strip down the middle where the hole for hanging it is located. Then you will cut each of those long strips at 2 inches the long way so down the entire length. You will end up with 2 strips that are wider than the other 2 so when you assemble them you will have 2 sizes. Next I punched a couple of circle of black cardstock to use as the base for my blob of hot glue and assembled the rosettes as I normally would. Hope that makes sense.
Well at my wreath class one of my friends loves Disney so I suggested that she make the rosettes in to a Mickey head! I was bummed because I had already assembled my wreath so I couldn't try it on my own then I remembered the Motley Monster DSP had an orange striped pattern!

I downloaded the Disney font & printed the Happy Halloween. I thought it came out pretty cute!

Fancy Friday Blog Hop!

Thursday, September 25

 

Whoop Whoop its time for the 2013 ADT Fancy Friday Monthly Blog Hop! I love that each month we have a new challenge. Last month it was a color combo & this month its a sketch!

 
I haven't done a sketch challenge in eons so this was super fun!

I switched it up a bit but still think I captured the gist of the sketch.
 
 
See that little glittery acorn-well I was just going to add a plain button then I saw Teneale Williams adorable glittered wood embellishments so I nixed the button & I think its much cuter!
Don't you?!
Well that's all I have for now so lets hop on over to see what the wonderful Alanna Wharf has been up to-
