Spring Has Sprung

The new challenge at My Sheri Crafts is all about spring.  The challenge is to create a project that projects what you think spring is all about.

I wanted to make a card that depicted a spring shower.  I thought this K&Co  blue polka dot paper was the perfect beginning.  I think it is a great play on a spring shower with the polka dots being the raindrops.  

This sweet little image is a cut from the Cricut cartridge Kates ABC's.  When I found the yellow and blue printed paper, I knew I wanted to use it for her raincoat and boots!  It is just such a bright happy print.  After cutting the image and attaching it to the card, I found this ribbon which matches the umbrella.  And that ribbon was the perfect finishing touch to my card.

Please come and join in the challenge.  Just go to My Sheri Crafts and link up your project.  While there you will see some fabulous projects about spring.!!!!

Tag With Cross

Each Thursday the wonderful ladies at My Paper Crafting feature tag and artist trading cards with a theme.  How appropriate it is that this week the them is to include a cross on the project.  

I began my tag with a tag cut from the Lacey Labels cartridge.  I cut the tag out in three different sizes with three different papers to create the layers.  The pretty floral frame is also from Lacey Labels.  Everything on the tag is inked in gold.  

The cross and hearts are cut from the Easter 2010 cartridge.  I added them to the tag with foam tape to give  them dimension.  The four little gems are from Recollections and the pretty gemcluster on the cross is from Prima.  

And then to finish the tag I added these two pretty sheer ribbons.  The rgold ribbon is from Jo Anns and the mauve ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.  All of the papers are from K&Co.  


Please go to My Paper Crafting to see all the beautiful tags from our design team.  And then join us by making your own tag or ATC with a cross.  Have a great week and a wonderful Easter weekend.

Damask Decor Showcase

Hello, and welcome to this week's cartridge showcase, Damask Decor. And what a great cartridge it is.  Along with the regular cuts, there are two different layer cuts,  silhouette cuts, tag cuts and a card and envelope cut.  

And now for the projets I have made.

This card was such a simple one to make.  I used the card cut for the base of the card and then the card overlay cut.  I then added a strip of  brown to the card and topped it with a pink ribbon.  And then to complete the card I added a bow and gems.  How easy wss that!!  

I had this wonderful trim that I had been eager to use and when I saw these papers of the same colors I knew I had a project ready to be made.  I began with a white card base topped with a turquoise damask printed mat.  I then added the green and purple matstopped with the tri-colored trim.  The pretty damask design was added and adorned with some little gems.  The little bird was cut from the Give A Hoot cartridge.  And the sentiment is from a K Andrew stampset.  And then I finished the card with a pretty crinckle ribbon bow.   This card has always been one of my favorites because it is so unusual.   

This little damask shaped card was cut made by welding two shapes together with my Gypsy.  The little heart is a favorite shape of mine and one I have used often.  This card was embellished with an eposy sticker that says Live, Laugh, Love, some little pink gems and three tiny pink roses.

This little teapot card was so easy to make using the card cuts on the cartridge.  A small blue bow was added.  I just love this teapot cut.  

I have also used Damask Decor to make a couple of banners.  

This first banner is has a shabby chic look to it with the pretty pale colors.  It says "Bliss" and hangs from an antique French armoie in a guest bedroom.  It is embellished with pretty roses, silk ribbons and sweet gems.  

I made this Christmas banner to use on a bulletin board in my classroom.  The banner base shapes began with the Damask Decor cartridge.  I really like these shapes to create a banner.  The ginerbread and candy shapes were cut from various Christmas cartridges.  The banner hangs from a sheer red ribbon.

This shaped card was made with the pumpkin from Damask Decor.  I added several eposy fall leaves, a tri-colored crinkle ribbon bow and a sentiment stamp.  

Here is another card made with the pumpkin cut.  It is a shaker card.  And oh what a fun card it is.

Hello Spring!

It is officially spring and time for warmer weather and flowers blooming.  The CWC challenge this  week at My Paper Crafting is to make a project about Spring.

This little caard was so easy to make.  I used the A Walk In My Garden cartridge tocut the tulips and the flower pots.  I actually used the border cut for the flower pots, so they are only one cut.  The inking was done with gold ink. I cut the grass by hand.  All of the papers came from my stash.  And lastly, I added  the ribbon just to give it texture and more color.  

Join us this week at My Paper Crafting as we celebrate the beginning of Spring!

Cartridge Showcase: Garden Soup

Hello everyone!!  I am delighted to bring to you a showcase of the cartridge, Garden Soup.

This cartridge has some wonderful images, phrases, and borders.  And I do think it has some of the best  3D projects ever.  

Today, I have three cards to share with you using the Garden Soup cartridge.  The first one is a little card made with the honeycomb shape.  The one I am using is plain.  Hoever there are some great honeycomb shapes that include design cuts.   

The little honeycombs were cut at 1 inch.  I ran them through my zyron to make it easy to place them on the card.  The little flower is also cut from Garden Soup.  The white paper was embossed with the Swiss dots folder and inked around the edges with black.  The senitment is a stamp from Inkadinkado.  It was added to the card with foam tape.  The bird sticker is from a set that I found int he $1.00 bin at JoAnn's.  And of course, I just had to add ribbon and twine.

My next card makes me think of planting that spring garden.  And it is about that toime of year.  

Isn't this wheelbarrow wonderful!  I hand cut the dirt and added it.  The wheelbarrow is inked with a little pewter.  The watering can, shovel and pick are also from the Garden Soup cartridge.  

The little birds I added to the card are from ColorBox and came from JoAnn's.  The sentiment is fromt Just Rite Stampers.  The labels for the sentiment were cut with Spellbinders dies, and then inked in pewter.

Here is a little card that will surely bring the sunshine.  

The base of the card is kraaft.  I added a pale yessow mat and then topped it with a white mate.  I used an embossing border folder called wicker weave on the left of the card.  I then inked it with a little charteuse and added three little yelow gems to it.  
The daffodils were cut from the Garden Soup cartridge.  I then added some yellow glitter glue to them. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stampers. The labels for the stamp were cut with Spellbinder dies.  The white label is inked with chartreuse and the green mat is inked with green.  I added another little yellow gem to the sentiment.  To complete the crd I added a pretty sheer yellow bow.  

Thank you for joining me for this showcae.  I have had so much fun with the cartridge, that I am not putting it up until I make a few more projects.  Drop back by my in a few days to see those projects as well.

You will see more of the Garden Soup cartridge today at My Paper Crafting.  So head over there for more fun!

Read Across America 2013

Hello, and welcome as we celebrate the NEA's Read Across America and Dr. Suess' Birthday.


As part of this celebration, we, the design team at My Sheri Crafts are looking for projects about reading and books.  I have made this card for our school librartian.  She has been doing such a gret job with the children at our school and providing all kinds of events and activities as part of the celebration.

I made the card with K&Co paper.  The library shelf with the books and lamp is one of my new all time favorites.  It is from the Wall Decor and More cartridge.  It has been inked in brown.  The word "knowledge" is also from the same cartridge.  And for a little texture, I added a little piece of tea dyed lace.  Oh,  I cannot wait to give it to her Monday.  I know she will love it.  

Come visit all the design team members at My Sheri Crafts and see their reading projects. We especially want you to join in the challenge.  Just remember...


Let's keep America reading!  Thanks for dropping by!
