Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 82

Atlantinc Hearts Sketch Challenge 82

Hellos all, been a while since I peeked in on my Blog, been soooo busy.  I have been getting ready for the fairs.  Having so much fun doing it too.  Snowmen wrapped popcorn, santa wrapped Santas, gift bags and boxes..the lilst goes on and on.  Going to need a big table.  Well enough of that, on to my project for the AHSC

I was at a craft event recently and made some candy gift boxes, and decided to incorporate the sketch into my project.  The papers I had there were from a friend and I think they ar Bo Bunny, not sure..anywho, here it is.

Above is the outside front of the box and below is the inside..the right side is a box with acetate in the window, great place to put Dove chocolates don't you think??? 

now lets see what you can do with the sketch :)  clink on the link below and Link your project up and see what the other Design team members have made.

Have a great week

Atlantic Hearts Sketch Challenge 80

Heelo fellow crafters and thanks for checking in, today I am posting for AHSC for the challenge 80.  When I looked at it, i was thinking the outer edge of the card is embossed possibly, so that is what I did.....

I used this dark burgundy paper I found in my stash for a dramatic effect, and then I found some papers from CTMH..Colonial white, Huntington and Olive. The ribbon was a loose piece I had in my ribbon bag and went perfectly with the fall theme,  I also used 2 stamp sets from CTMH.....

I used Saddle for the ink as well as Olive.
for a finishing touch I added mini green rhinestones.  I hope you like what I came up with, I was pleased,  Now it is your turn to give it a try:)   Head here and post your project and check out what the other DT members have to share.

You can also take a look at my website..there are plenty of new products to help you create and craft...

Happy Crafting!!

Snow on the way

 Hello everyone, Happy NOvember.  How are you all doing this weekend, I have been crafting, house cleaning and having a good day.

This afternoon I heard we were going to be getting a couple inches of snow this evening so I decided to color the snowman stamps I got in the mail today from UNITY stamps,

I colored them using Spectrum Noir markers.  I then asked m y Facebook friends if i shoud make tags or cards with them and they voted on cards and soI did get 3 done, and here they are

( I am going to enter this card in the Spectrum Noir November Challenge  here)
I can not wait to color some more,  I need to practice practice.
Well that is it for today...Oh and i wanted to tell you of the New November Stamp of the Month  which can be yours for $5 with the purchase of $50.00 on my website, and there are some new items in the While Supplies Last section...so you might want to take a look before it is gone!!
