Cute As A Button Inspiration

Hello all!
Today I'm sharing a little inspiration
over on the

I created a pop up box card using

I started by coloring the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and fussy cutting.
 I chose coordinating yardstick and designer paper.

I constructed the box base out of a 10 x 7 inch piece
of solid dark pink card stock and added panels
with the DP. I attached the image with acetate
to a strip of card stock inside the box.

I cut out several die cuts using Crafter's Companion 
and Taylored Expressions dies.
These were all attached the same way as the main image
with the exception of the fan and sentiment die cuts,
which were glued directly to the center flap.

And... the project is complete!

Be sure and check out this stamp along with
 the others available at

And don't forget to join in our monthly challenge at

And we always love seeing your Cute As A Button creations at

Until next time,
Happy Crafting!

Happy Christmas Eve

Happy Christmas Eve!

I have a card I wanted to share this morning
which was created with Crafter's Companion products.

This one was pretty quick and easy.

I simply took a 5 x 6.5 inch white card base and
ran it through the Gemini with the embossing folder.

colored the raised parts of the embossing with the Colourblend Pencils.
I went over the white areas with a clear Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen.

The stamped image was also colored with the Colourblend Pencils
and then fussy cut.

I popped the image on top of the card with foam tape.
The sentiment was stamped, trimmed and adhered with foam tape.

And there you go ...
quick and easy!

MHKDesigner Inspiration

Today's my day to share some inspiration on the

Since it's December and we're into the holiday mode
I created a gift bag using one of my favorite
MHKDesigns sets.

I love this vintage Santa image and it dresses
up a plain white gift bag perfectly for gift giving.
The tag was created using one of the greetings from the set.

I colored the image with pencils, fussy cut
and adhered with foam tape to a rectangular mat
of designer paper and solid card stock.
Coordinating designer paper was used behind the mat.

I hope I've inspired you 
to create something for the holiday season!

Until next time,
I wish you and yours Happy Holidays and Happy New Year!
