May Your Birthday Be as Sweet as You

Hello... if anyone out there is still reading my poor neglected blog, lol.  However, I've kinda been on a roll this week, I'm posting my 5th card... woop, woop!  I made one more shadow box card in honor of Lisa Lynn's birthday!  She is a member of my Design Team over at Imagine That! digis by Kris and is sweet as can be.  So Lisa, this one's for you...


I used one of my newest digi sets, Chloe's Mixer (see all our Baking Mice sets HERE)

I posted a link in my last post to the shadow box tutorial I followed, but I'll link it here too.  And then I found yet another use for my envelope punch board!!  It makes these really nifty paper bows :)  You can watch the video on those HERE.  

And for those who cannot watch videos (I know I'm running low on my allotted usage for this month) here are the measurements to cut your pieces...  Base = 1 x 5"  /  Middle = 1 x 6.5"  /  Top = 1 x 5.5"



If you create one of these shadow box cards this week, you can enter it at Latina's Arts & Crafts challenge blog and possibly win 3 digi sets from my store!!  :)  Get ta crafting!!

A Shadow Box Card & Sneak Peek

Hi there!  It's been a loong time since I've actually sat down and created a card!  I've done plenty on my computer with creating digis and papers and scrapbook pages.  But see, my craft room has been in shambles for quite some time and with both my husband's and my desks in a small room, it doesn't leave much room for crafting.  But good news!  I am sponsoring Latina's Arts n' Crafts this month and the challenge is to create a shadow box card!

 I've never made one quite like this so I took the challenge.  I'm posting this one here instead of my store blog because I've used a new set of mine that is not yet released to the public.  ;)  So you get a sneak peek of one of our August sets, called "Gone Buggy" - it's a large set with lots of choices and some cute digi papers to match, so keep an eye out for their release.


I used a different tutorial than the one on Latina's A&C because they used cm and my cutter in is inches.  So I found this one - http://ricas-haven.blogspot.com/2011/03/card-shadow-box-tutorial.html

and here's my other one I posted on my store blog yesterday using
  Sweet Feet Tea Set  and the Tea n' Roses digi papers.  




Take the plunge and join their challenge!!  You could win 3 digi sets of your choice from my shop!

Happy Crafting!
