Flashback Friday 18.0

I am SO excited to share that All These Things is sponsoring the latest challenge over at the Flashback Friday Challenge blog!!! The challenge this month is to share the first owl card you ever blogged.  I had to go way back to July 2008 to find this crazy layered card using Pink Cat Studios stamps and Basic Grey paper.  It’s so fun for me to see how much my style has changed since I started making cards.

Make sure you check out the challenge over at the Flashback Friday Challenge blog – there is an awesome prize up for grabs AND a coupon code for All These Things!!!


More Holiday Tags

I’ve been on a tag making kick lately, as you can probably tell by looking at my last few blog posts.  The idea was to make a bunch and get them listed at my Etsy shop, All These Things, in time for the holiday shopping season.  Well here we are less than a month away from Christmas, and I still don’t have everything posted yet.

I really love the bright shades of red and green used on these tags.  The light blue and pops of yellow make this set a favorite of mine.  All the chipboard pieces are glittered and look so awesome in person!  You can find this set of four holiday tags at All These Things!

Tag Time

With Christmas fast approaching, I’ve been working on holiday gift tags the last few days. For some reason I’ve been of the mindset that I had an abundance of Christmas supplies. Turns out, I don’t! Here is one set that I made recently.  I love the red and olive green color combo.  I used a bit of red Stickles on the berries to help them stand out better.

I put a few sets of tags up in my Etsy store earlier today.  Be sure to check them out!

ETA: I’ve entered this into this weeks CAS-ual Fridays challenge (Thanks, Michele!!)

An Etsy Shop Update!

Hey all!  I just wanted to throw out there that I’ve got some new products in my Etsy shop.  I’m now selling full 240 yard spools of Divine Twine in addition to the 3 yard bundles.  I’ve also added some new colors recently, one of them is the Air Mail twine.  I love this stuff!!

Hambly meets Papertrey Ink

I am in need of some birthday cards, so here is a fun one using a Hambly Screen Prints transparency and Papertrey Ink stamps.  Next up to make:  baby cards!

I also wanted to mention that I lowered the shipping prices in my Etsy store for all Divine Twine purchases!  I’ve also added some circus ticket die cuts in some lighter colors that can be used for tags, scrapbooking, cardmaking, etc.  You can find my Etsy store HERE.

Etsy Store – Grand Opening!

This has been a few weeks in the making, but I’m finally ready to open the doors to my Etsy store!  Not to sell cards – but these:

Rolled Fabric Flowers!!!  I have a few headbands that I wear with these and had the thought that with a little fine-tuning, these would look AWESOME on scrapbook pages and cards!!  What makes these different then the flowers on headbands is they are much thinner, so they fit on scrap pages placed in page protectors and on cards inside envelopes.

Here’s a view from the side – see how skinny they are!  Each flower is approximately 2 inches wide and only 1/4″ thick!  Not much bigger than a button or a bow made out of ribbon.

Through Sunday (4/25) I’m offering a special – Buy five (5) flowers and I will include one (1) free with your order!!  Go HERE to reach my ETSY STORE.

Here is a card using a Rolled Fabric Flower in Watermelon with a bunch of fun, glittery American Crafts Dear Lizzy products!

April DD/DDA Challenge – Earth Day

This month the fabulous Kelly Landers is our hostess over on Splitcoaststampers for the Dirty Dozen/Dirty Dozen Alumni challenge.  Since Earth Day is right around the corner – we are celebrating Earth Day today!  In addition to making an Earth Day card, we needed to also have a recycled element and we were not allowed to use buttons (GASP!!)

I kind of stretched the theme a bit (Earth Day = Mother Earth = I love my Mom).  The recycled bit is the fabric used to make my rolled fabric flower (more on that in a bit!) and no buttons means just that – no buttons!  I did use some Kaisercraft rhinestones instead though.

Stamps: Lizzie Anne Designs (April 2010 Monthly Mix set)
Cardstock: Papertrey Ink (kraft, cream)
Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye (unknown collection)
Ink: Memento (rich cocoa); Copic marker (RV32)
Accessories: Kaisercraft rhinestones
Tools: EK Success scalloped border punch
Other: rolled fabric flower (handmade by me!)

So a bit more on the rolled fabric flower…  I will be selling these in my Etsy shop beginning THIS WEEK!  I will have a bunch of different colors to choose from, so stay tuned!
