I like to create cards, scrapbook layouts, mini albums and altered art. I love pretty paper, glitter and coloring with Copics. I have been married to my high school sweetheart for 24 years and we have two daughters. I share my craft creations on my blog at www.candyscreationsblog.blogspot.com .
Today I am sharing two cards that I created with the September Mon Ami Gabby Kit Club. I created a bow with the cream ribbon in the Kit for my Fall Harvest Girl Card.
This card also features a beautiful Fall Floral Embellishment that was included in the Kit and I adhered the small Fall Trim Flower from Mon Ami Gabby to the bottom right hand corner of my card as a final touch.
For my second card I created my Nature Card featuring the "Nature" Ephemera included in the September Kit, which I added some glitter to for some extra sparkle. I just love this beautiful Fall Ribbon with the pretty leaves. I added the Pearl Embellishment to the Burlap Flower and added Platinum Stickles to the edges of the burlap. I added glitter to the Wheat Embellishments and finished by adding the Fall Trip Flower at the base of the Wheat Embellishment.

Instructions: Begin by creating an A2 Sized card base out of cream cardstock. Next take an A2 sized card front from the Blushing Rose Paper Collection and die cut out the center using a Spellinders Classic Circles die. On die cut circle with Sweet Plum Ink stamp sentiment using the Encourage You Stamp Set. Sponge edges of card front and die cut circle with Cantaloupe ink. Adhere A2 card front to card base with Double Dots and adhere circle directly to the card base using Dries Clear Adhesive. On White Cardstock with Tuxedo Black Ink stamp rose petals with Classic Rose Cling Set and stamp arched rose image with Blushing Rose Stem Stamp Set. Die cut all with coordinating dies. Color leaves with a sponge dauber and New Sprout and Bamboo Leaves Ink, color blue rose petals with Ice Blue Chalk Ink and Teal Zeal Ink and buds with Lulu Lavender and Sweet Plum Ink. Shape with Deluxe Flower Shaping Kit and assemble as shown. With Dries Clear Adhesive add Leia Glitter to the roses and leaves and to the design paper, as desired. Add Iridescent Rhinestones to the four corners of the card front.
To create the the Doghouse, using a pencil I traced around the different sections of the Doghouse on the design paper and scissor cut out the sections. I adhered the design paper sections to the chipboard with Dries Clear Adhesive. To get an even more precise edge I then used a nail file along the edges of the Chipboard Doghouse. I sponged Old Paper Distress Ink along the edges and inside the opening of the Doghouse to create depth and shading. I then adhered the striped beige design paper to the back of the Chipboard Doghouse to cover the opening.
I heat embossed the Chipboard Dog and Chipboard Fence. Before I started I covered each piece with Gesso. For the Chipboard Fence I covered it with Clear Emboss It Ink and then added Weathered White Embossing Powder. I tapped off the excess and heat set it. To create the Chipboard Dog I covered it in Tree Branch Wendy Vecchi Archival Ink and added the coordinating Tree Branch Embossing Powder. I tapped of the excess and heat set it. Embossing chipboard creates a beautifully covered surface.
This scene I created is now ready to be added to a scrapbook page!
Hello crafters! Today I am sharing my Shabby Chic Rose Birdhouse I created featuring Heartfelt Creations Classic Rose Collection.
I found this birdhouse while I was on vacation out in the Black Hills of South Dakota this summer at a boutique and it was on sale. I immediately knew it would be perfect to decorate with roses created with this collection.
I used a hot glue gun to adhere the roses to the birdhouse.
I just love how this project turned out!
