Hello friends,  Today is a fun day for my fabulous Design Team and I over at Seize the Birthday, we are one of the many guests taking part in The Ultimate Challenge Blog Hop with Altenew!  We are absolutely thrilled that they contacted us to join them! Did I mention they have prizes too?  You have got to see the LONG list of Challenge Blogs joining the hop!  It’s incredible!!!

Before I go, my card was made with the Altenew stamp set called Botanical Garden.  I colored the rose buds with my Spectrum Noir pens and used some additional shading with some Prisma Colored Pencils. The sentiment is heat embossed and the black and white background was made with the same rose bud stamp. I added a little bit of white dots for some added interest.  Now, head on over to Seize the Birthday and check out what some of my team-mates have done…their cards are Sensational !!!!  Hope to see you in the gallery too! Nanc’

Die Cut Crazy Blog Hop

DCC FebBlogHop

Welcome to the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Valentine Blog Hop.

The designers have made some wonderful Valentine projects to inspire your own crafting with your die cuts.

If you just joined our hop, be sure and go back to the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Blog 

to learn how you can enter to win a prize

when following the hop from designer to designer.

 My holiday project I am sharing today is….a Valentine card!

BTW…My card is a little oversized and measures 4 3/4 x 5 1/2.

The first thing I did was cut out a 4 inch heart with my Cricut.

The next step was to make (6 ) 2 1/4 slits down the center of the hearts

with a Xacto knife approx. 3/4 inches apart.

Then I cut out 4 strips of ivory card stock 5/8″ wide…length doesn’t matter.

Now, the fun part it’s time to weave.

Here I just trimmed off to the size I wanted and put a tiny bit of glue on the

ends to keep them in place.

Here is another view.

The scalloped border was something from Creative Memories that I bet I have had for 8 years.

I added the Ivory victorian border that was cut with my Fiskars cutter.

The sentiment is from Gina K Designs along with the Spellbinders fancy tag.

Added a ribbon and some pop dots and I was done.

Thanks for stopping by the Die Cut Crazy Magazine Holiday Blog Hop.

I hope my project inspires you to create your own Valentine card and or project.

 Please leave a comment to let me know you have stopped by.

Next up in the hop is Melissa. Go see the amazing project she has prepared for you to enjoy!

Haunted Hop

WELCOME TO THE SEPTEMBER BLOG HOP!

“Haunted Hop”

Hi everyone!  Thanks for playing along in our September blog hop!  The Blog Hop with Sean & Regina is featuring cards and sentiments celebrating HALLOWEEN this month! Halloween was always such a fun holiday growing up! I remember the excitement building and then the fun school Halloween parties to the furious finale….trick or treating!  Join us on our haunting hop!  Each host/hostess will have a card creation posted that is his/her representation of what HALLOWEEN means to them.

OUR BLOG HOP SPONSOR!

Scrapbook Stamp Society is our blog hop sponsor!  The overall winner will receive digi’s from our sponsor.  Also, SOME of our blog hop host/hostess designers will be offering blog candy as prizes on their blog sites, so please do not forget to visit his/her blog (and leave a comment) to be eligible for bonus blog hop prizes!

Here is my Card for this HOP!

It’s a type of Tri-fold card just like my last Halloween card from a few days ago!

Love the close up of the pumpkin!

I took my little letter stamps and stamped them on cardstock in a up and down pattern…

then took a ruler and a black pen and added the outline to define the sign so I could cut it out. Hope that makes sense!

Some details:  The cardstock and DP is mostly Creative Memories, the Happy Halloween I made with some letter stamps I have had for a long time.

Used my Scallop Nestabilities from GKD… add some MS punch leaves and some twine and some black ink for added effects and there you have it!

Now it is your turn to blog hop with all of our friends!

The rules are simple:

  1. Leave a comment on my blog first (and become a follower to enter a chance to win the grand prize from Scrapbook Stamp Society)!  In addition, I am giving away some BONUS BLOG CANDY!
  2. Go down the list of blogs visiting all of them (see below).  Leave comments on their blog pages to be eligible for bonus blog candy from select blog hosts. The blog hop host/hostee offering bonus blog candy will indicate that he/she has a bonus blog candy prize so read their blog post carefully.  Each blog will have the name and blog address for the next host/hostess in line for the blog hop.
  3. At the end of the hop, a random winner will be chosen for the Blog Hop Grand Prize from our sponsor and select blog hop hosts for Bonus Blog Candy.  The deadline for leaving comments is Monday, September 24, 2012 at 8pm CST.   Winners of the Grand Prize and bonus Blog Candy will be announced Tuesday, September 25, 2012.

******** BONUS BLOG CANDY HERE ********

Please Subscribe to my Blog and leave a comment to be eligible to win blog candy!

What am I giving away you might ask?

 To keep up with the Halloween theme “Trick Or Treat” I thought it might be kinda fun to have it be a surprise… I promise I won’t disappoint you!
