Cupcake Explosion Box |Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps | Designer Highlight | Day 2

Hello again everyone!!

If you are looking for a Faith Friday post, please come back on Sunday - I am up for Heart of Worship so I will share then!!

 

Yesterday, I shared a fun fold card for the Prickley Pear Rubber Stamps Designer Highlight day.  Today I am sharing the Explosion Box to go along with it!!  And I am sharing below, how I created it, with today's video. 

I used the same papers although I added a couple richer colors with the 12x12 papers.   

But I also used the Cupcake Dies and Valentine Cupcake Builder set

PPRS DH 2-9 b

For the inside, you can go as wild as you want.  I really wanted to add some banners hanging down to really celebrate the birthday!

I also created a cute lil cake using a tea light.  I saw this once online and am so excited to get to share it with you today!! 

PPRS DH 2-9b

There are lots of great layers to this box, and decorating them can be the best part.  I kept things pretty simple as this will be a display piece for PPRS.

CDD DEcember 1

This image is called Ginger Cookie and he was super cute to color with my Copics.  I also added some dimension and shading with my white gel pen! 

I used papers from the Here Comes Santa Claus paper pad, which coordinates so well with our Christmas Matte Enamel Embellishments! My cards are not complete without those sprinkles of cuteness!! 

I used the Fancy Frames dies and the Stitched in Circles dies to cut everything out.  And I paired the image with a sentiment from our This & That stamp set.

Riley & Company Stamps | November Release | Mushroom Lane

Hey all!!  

Today we are kicking off the November Release from Riley & Co Stamps November Release!  We have some new Mushroom Lane Houses to add to the collection!  What a fun little set of images!!  

I wanted to make something other than a card today.  So while browsing at the local Ben Franklin Crafts, I picked up this wood piece and the word home.  I painted the word home to match my image, and adhered everything to the wood piece.   

 

November Release 1

Here is a detail shot of my house.  It turned out so cute!!  There really are some great details to all of these houses!!

Introducing New Years Greetings | MHK Designs October Release

Hi crafty friends!!  It’s the last day of the MHK October Release, and I’m super excited to share today’s project!  It’s my favorite of the whole release!!  I knew that I wanted to create a wine bottle topper for this set, New Years Greetings. 

 

MHK Release

 

I printed the image on vellum and added it to the red tag with some black ribbon and silver cording.  I printed the sentiment on white paper and added it to the topper.  I also added some small black sprinkles to add some classy accents. 

This was very simple, but will be a great addition to a bottle of wine when visiting friends or family this holiday season! 

MHK Release 2

Make sure you check out all of the new release sets today in the Etsy Store.  Also check out the MHK Designs blog today for more inspiration from the other team members.

Coffee Week Video Series | Episode 5

054

Make sure you scroll down to see all of the Episodes this week!  And then check out the entire Video play list HERE on YouTube.

 

Everything on today’s project can be found in the Craftin Desert Divas Store. 

Coffin Break

The stamp images are from Ghostly Greetings, and that is where the inspiration started.  I saw this sentiment and thought HOW COOL would it be if there was a coffin holding a Kcup.  So the only way to knew to do that was to create the image in Cricut Design Space.  You can find the link to that below. 

I also used the new Doodlebug Halloween papers, Boos and Brews and then I added the matte finish sprinkles.   The potion bottles are so fitting with the Coffee theme.

I hope you enjoyed this final coffee themed project for the week.  I’ve enjoyed sharing this week. 

ONE BIG CHANGE – I do mention in the video that I will start Halloween WEEK next week, and due to time and other commitments, I will not be doing a week of videos.  Instead, I will start a Halloween Series next week and it will be sporadic over the next couple of weeks. 

Enjoy today’s video.

Fitness Hippo Spinner Card | Craftin’ Desert Divas

Hippo Collage

 Hi friends!!  I have a fun video for you today sharing how I made this super cute lil spinner-ish card.  I don't know what you would call it I guess.  HA!  I knew tho, that I wanted to have those three Fitness Hippo images twist through the card.  Hopefully, by watching the video you can get the idea.  However, I didn't have a plan, I really just was winging it.   If you also want to create it, please let me know and I can help you get the idea of it. 

 Fitness Hippo

 

I used three of the new Fitness Hippo digital stamps form Craftin' Desert Divas. The sentiment is from Be Inspired. You can find the new Shaker dies HERE.  Papers are the Jillibean Kraft In Color and sprinkles are the Birthday Girl pack.
