Cardabilities Design Team Reveal #124: Forever Flip Card

Hello, crafty friends!

It's the 30th...It's Cardabilities Design Team Reveal Day! It's also my last project as a DT member...hope you enjoyed all my projects!

Here's the fun sketch by Karan:


Our Sponsor for this sketch is Crafty City:



You have until the 13th of the following month to link up (click HERE to link your projects)!

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought swing (or flip) card!









I used double-sided paper and cut the card and wreath using Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge (CTMH).
I heat embossed the wreath in silver. I added a cream panel, a punched border, some washi tape and stamping to the card.
The birds and banner are heat embossed in clear and popped-up with foam tape. The cake was heat embossed in silver.

Thank you for stopping by!

French Dies {Fri}: Butterfly and Apple Honeycomb Card

Hello,

Today, I have  two die cut cards to share! 
I cut both cards using Artfully Sent Cricut cartridge (CTMH).
I heat embossed a few of the "left over" hexagons in gold (and red) and adhered them to the inside of cards.

First up is:



I cut the butterfly using Artbooking Cricut cartridge (it was altered in CCR) and heat embossed it in black UTEE (ultra thick embossing enamel), twice. The second time, I also sprinkled some copper and platinum UTEE.


Now...if you're going to leave the card with the open front like that, I suggest inking or heat embossing the back side of the butterfly for a finished look.
You could also back the die cut front panel with glittered or patterned paper, if you don't want the writing showing.
Another option is to write the message on the back of the card.


Challenges:

Second card:


These hexagons were adhered with foam tape.


Challenges:

Have a nice weekend!!!

Decorate to Celebrate DT Challenge #101: Altered Mirror

Hello, Crafty Friends!

It's time for Decorate to Celebrate today! You can create anything 3-D...for a chance to win a prize from Rhonda - a mini album.

I altered a plain mirror from IKEA for a friend, who had a baby girl recently.


Challenges:



I used some old papers from BasicGrey, stamps from Autumn Leaves and Stampabilities, flowers (Recollections and Prima), gemstones, pearls (The Paper Studio), stickers (K&Co.), glitter gel (CTMH), clear embossing powder, and spray (Tsukineko/Imagine Crafts).

I plan to add the baby's name on the lower right...maybe cut it out using my Cricut...or stamp it...what do you think I should do? =)


Thank you for stopping by!

Challenges:


I'm not really into gold...but lately, I've been in love with gold! Especially gold/mint or coral, and gold/black.
I used the CTMH Artbooking cartridge for the star overlay and the flower, and I heat embossed them in gold.
I used CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge for the banner and the panel (altered in CCR and trimmed).
Then, I added some stamping to the panel and banner, popped-up the flower with 3-D foam tape, and added the thread and button.

{Sat} PS26 #11: Pocket Scrapbooking (2 Pages)

Happy Saturday, crafty friends!

Today is the day I post for my Project Scrapbooking 26!
If you have "no" time to scrapbook, these 3x4 or 4x6 cards might just be your life saver!

I have 2 pages to share with you:

I'd like to link one of them here:


No embellishments here! Just photos and cards! It takes more time to print the photos, than to put them together! =)
Next time, I'll share some pages with some embellishments...

Have a nice weekend!
