Drummer Bear Box Card


Hi! I am officially starting to make my Christmas cards. Today I made this adorable "Drummer Bear Box Card" from My Scrap Chick. 



You can find the file HERE:

MATERIALS LIST

CG-Drummer Bear Box Card file from My Scrap Chick
Red glitter cardstock from AMERICAN CRAFTS
Pearlescent Paper by COLORBOK in gold and black.
Brown, tan and white cardstock by Recollections
Black Rhinestones from Micheal's
Aleenes Tacky Glue and Zig Two Way Glue

Before you put the rest of the card together, glue the head to the inside back of the card base. I added the hat with foam tape to add dimension.



Next, make the hands, making sure to add the drumsticks to the back of the hand. Add the pieces to create the top of the drum before adding the hands to the center piece, again using foam tape.




Using Aleenes Tacky Glue, put the card base together with the glitter on the outside. I hold things together with paper clips while everything dries. Add the center piece by gluing it in the middle of the box section. 




Add the drum details. I added black rhinestones to the points of the W shaped piece on the front.


 

And here is a side view of the finished Drummer Bear Box Card. I really love him in the glitter cardstock.

Witch Shoes



Hi! Sorry I've been MIA for awhile. My son and his family have been building a house and everything has been going wrong. Anyway, since tomorrow is Halloween, I figured it was time to make treat boxes for my granddaughters.


For my witch shoes I used CG_Witch Shoe Box from My Scrap Chick.

I enlarged the file slightly and followed the included PDF instructions on how to put the shoes together. It was very easy to do. I used the Spooky Delight stack by DCWV for my shoes. I also used scraps of orange glitter cardstock for the buttons and gold glossy cardstock for the buckle. I inked all the edges with black ink. The finished shoe measures 6.5 inches long by 5 inches tall. 


I think my granddaughters will love them. It's a quick project, so there is still plenty of time to make one or two Witch Shoe Boxes for your little witches and goblins. 

Thanks for looking. Happy Halloween!

Michigan t-shirt


While camping last week I made this Michigan t-shirt.


I used State Designs Michigan from My Scrap Chick for my t-shirt. I used the contour feature in Design Space to remove the heart from the Lower Peninsula and the slice feature to add a heart to the UP where I live. 


I started with a 11.5 inch square of camping themed fabric and ironed Heat and Bond Lite to the back. I cut the design out, then ironed it onto my t-shirt. Using two strands of embroidery floss, I blanket stitched around the images.


Even though my stitching is far from perfect, I'm happy with the way my t-shirt turned out, and it was a lot of fun to make.



Why not try to make a t-shirt for your home state?

Pirate Ship Boxcard

Ahoy Maties!



Hi! Today I am sharing this cute Pirate Ship Box Card from My Scrap Chick. You can find the file HERE: I also added a little pirate using the Bella and Baxtor Pirates file which you can find Here:


               CG - Pirate Ship Box Card: click to enlarge                                               Bella & Baxtor Pirates: click to enlarge       

The files imported into Design Space at the correct sizes. I used the Warm & Cozy Stack from the Jen Hadfield Home Made Collection for the boat base. I used scraps from my stash for everything else. The card went together easily.

The little pirate was made 3 inches tall including his hat. I attached him to the card with a couple foam dots.


Thanks for stopping by.

Puzzle Girl Autism Awareness Card



Hi! 
Today is New Release Day at Little Blue Button Stamps and I had the privilege of using "Puzzle Girl" for my project. You can find the New Releases HERE:

When I saw this image I immediately thought of Autism, so I decided to make an Autism Awareness card. The card is large at 5 by 7 inches. The framed puzzle file is from Cricut and the sentiment was inspired by a sentiment found on Pinterest. I used tiny alphabet gems I had in my stash for the sentiment.


The image was printed out in Design space at 4 inches. I colored her with Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and fussy cut her out leaving a narrow white border . She was mounted onto the card base with foam tape.



I hope you liked my Autism Awareness card. Thanks for stopping by.

Picnic Sophie


Hi! Today I am sharing my last DT project for Little Blue Button Stamps.


I used the sweet image, "Picnic Sophie" which can be found HERE:



I created the easel card using files from Bird's Cards. The card base is cut from "Watercolor Ombre" Stack by DCWV.  The floral frame was cut from Pearlescent Cardstock by Recollections. The card is accented with purple gel gems and paper flowers. The sentiment is from Digital Delights by Louby Loo and was added using foam squares.
"Picnic Sophie was colored with my Tri-Blend Markers from Spectrum Noir. She was also attached to the card base with foam squares. 



Thanks for stopping by!
Happy Crafting!

Mouse Ballet Slipper



It's Christmas in July At My Scrap Chick!
 I fell in love with this little "Mouse Ballet Slipper" and just had to make one.




You can find the svg file HERE:

MATERIALS LIST

Mouse Ballet Slipper svg
Cricut Felt in gray and pink
Scraps of green and red glitter cardstock
Black cardstock scrap
Two 3/8 inch wiggle eyes
3/8 inch pink gel sticker
6 inch piece of 1/8 inch wide red ribbon
Tacky glue
small clips (optional)
small glue dots

I cut the mouse body pieces and ears from Cricut Felt. I glued the pieces of the body together using Tacky Glue and held the pieces together while they dried with small clips. The mouse sole measures 4.5 inches long.


The ears slip into the slots and I added a dab of glue behind each ear to hold them in place. I also glued the tail at the back of the slipper.


I used Glue Dots to attach the eyes and nose and whiskers. I added the holly pieces with Tacky Glue.


I love this adorable little "Mouse Ballet Slipper!" I think I need to make another so I have a pair.

Thanks for stopping by!
