Card sample from Crop

I will be posting a few cards I got finished at the crop yesterday.


Here is a neat technique. Emboss your design onto black paper with Silver. Color base coat in with light color pencils, smooth out with your finger, color darker shades next. This was inspired by a post here, if you would like to read more. #299


Tic Tac Treat

I used the large Tic Tac containers for this project. For the base of the project I used the Cricut cart George. I was able to cut 6 at a time.

Score at 2 3/8 and 3.
Fold and crease.


If you would like for your cover to tie shut, it’s easier to add the ribbon now so the ribbon can be covered with paper.
Now you can choose how you would like to decorate your cover. I punched small hearts so that the Tic Tacs would show through. I think a larger heart punched would be nice, but my punches were not the correct size.
Be sure to use extra tacky tape when you attach your Tic Tac container.


Teepee Card Tutorial – some assembly required

This card is so easy.

Start by cutting three 4×4 squares from the same color of card stock. I cut mine from different colors so that you can see more clearly.

Score each square from end to end.

Lay one square down. Using adhesive attach another square as shown in the picture. You will be gluing the front of the green paper to the back of the striped paper(white back)

Flip this over and glue the other square down as seen in this picture. You will be gluing the back side of the pink paper onto the front side of the striped paper Notice the direction the creases are going.

Your card should fold up into a tee pee shape now. You can attach it together by applying velcro, cutting a slit in the back side, or removable tape etc.

When finished card will fold to fit inside a greeting card size envelope, this card could be made larger for for a 5 3/4x 8 3/4 which I got from Walmart. Some assembly will be required by the receiver. :0)

Birthday Card

Another Birthday Card

Whoooo Whoooo

A quick recovery card for a friend at church. I challenge you even if you don’t draw much, try creating something and coloring with your copics, you might be surprised how cute it looks on a card.



Antique Card

Tim Holtz Distress Ink
Spellbinders Fleur De Lis
Tim Holtz Paper Pack
Die Cuts (ges gesch printed in Germany)

I puchased the die cuts from “A Small Cleverness ” in Orange Park, Fl They remind me of the antique cards my great grandmother had. The base of the card is from a Tim Holtz paper pack. I antiqued everything except the flower with the distress ink. After I put it all together I added stickles so that the little girl would not blend in so much. I placed a blank sheet inside to write a note on. I like the antiqued look of the card.





Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas ….just kidding, but it’s coming soon. In this layout I used a small piece of fabric, left over Merry Christmas die cuts, and a doll graphic I drew a colored with copics, love those things ! I really like the plaid paper in this layout.
