PWCO Thanksgiving

Good morning and thank you for stopping by today. I know Thanksgiving is way past now, but it just past a few day for those of you located in the US. I wish I lived in the States, so that I could go line up to get some shopping done ahead for Christmas, lol...

Well, of course this is not the day for thinking of shopping, but be thankful for others and also to thank what you've got too.

Today's card is about Thanksgiving although it's a bit late. I used the "A Thankful Day" from the RAM Fall Collection. I stamped the image, colored it with Copic Markers, rubbed some distressing ink on top lightly, then added a light coating of Crackle Accents.

This sentiment also comes with the stamp.

Deb's Creations Ally & Beeble Gift Card Holder

Good morning :o) The weather has been so cold lately, so I think it would be nice to create something cheerful!! I am sharing with you today a gift card holder with Ally & Beeble image from Deb's Creations. She is one of my favorites from the Emerald Faeries Collection. I am going to use this gift holder for the following challenges:

Artful Inkables Think Ink #34 - all about punches and/or die cuts
A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge #131 - Anything Goes
Caardvarks Challenge - Gift Card/Money Holder
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Cut it out (punched shape or die cute)
Everybody Art Challenge #118 - Use Shapes
Die Cut Dreams Challenge #75 - Anything but a card
Ellephantastic Challenge #19 - Butterfly & or Xmas

Here is my finished project. I made this folder on a piece of 4 1/2" x 11" cardstock as base. Lay this piece long edge across the Scor-pal, score at 3" on each left & right side. Once I decorated it with DP, then I used my image piece as a closure by applying a piece of Velcro.

This challenge is hosted by our great talented DT Leader, Candy. She picked this picture to challenge you to creation a project using the following picture.

Here is my finished project. I made a card using #3063 Vintage Tilda and Leaf Wreath as from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS well as a little house that was from my Cricut Expression that I got from my hubby in Christmas 2007, but didn't open it until making this project. Not sure why, but it took me 3 years, lol

I am using this card for the following challenges:
Stamps R Us Challenge #9 - Sparkles and Scallops
ODBDSLC38 - Holiday
The Creative Cottage Challenge #27 - Someone special at Christmas
ABC Challenge - Christmas card
Lollipop Crafts Challenge - Christmas
Paper Cutz Challenge #68 - Christmas
Stamp and Create Challenge #7 - Tis the Season

Here is the card. I decorated the wreath with some ribbon and I put some foil under the wreath just so it added a little more bling & textures.

Edwin is having fun fishing - Shadow box card

Good morning Maggie Fans. LOL, Yes, it's Edwin today, not Tilda. Today is my husband's birthday, so I decided to post a 'male' card. I haven't been using Edwin for a while. The other day, I found some cute DP from a card kit swap I received about a year ago. When I saw this fishy dp, I remember there was a Edwin Fishing (currently out of stock) that would fit perfectly for this DP. So I pop over to Magnolia-licious to get it. There are many more Edwin stamps at Magnolia-licious that you can check out.

I am using this card for the following challenges:
My Time to Craft Challenge #115 - Window Fun
Gingerloft Challenge #6 - Great outdoors
Stamp with Fun Challenge #85 - Square
Cards for Men Challenge #23 - Animals
Crafty Creations Challenge #94 - Beautiful insides

Here is the finished shadow card. I added some metal words that are movable in between the 2 panels. I bought this sweet sentiment from a LSS over in Vancouver last year.

Here is a closer view on this cute Edwin Fishing

Deb's Creations - Not quite a stair step card

Good morning. Happy week everyone. Since the release of Deb's Creations' new stamp line - Emerald Faeries Collection, I made another card with Ebony which is one of these stamps. This one I made is not really a full stair step card because it has one less fold. Why? I found that the regular stair step card has not much space to write, and I wanted to have a bigger writing space. Therefore, I didn't make a fold on the very back piece of paper and that was the piece I leave for writing. This is such a cheerful image I made a thank you card with it.

I am also using this card for the following challenges:
Gingerloft Challenge #6 - Great Outdoor
Paper Sundaes Challenge #44 - Punches, Ribbon, Embossing, the color blue (at least 2 of these)
Cute Card Thursday Challenge #138 - Anything Goes
Anything Goes Challenge Week 24 - Emboss it
My Partner in Crafting Crime Challenge #15 - Marker Madness
Frosted Designs Word Challenge - Thanks or thankful
Creative Card Crew Challenge - Let's give thanks
Order of the Opus Gluei Challenge #79 - An Attitude of Gratitude (Thanks)
CCCB Week 30 - Thank you
The Character Cafe - Embossing
Lexi's Creations Challenge #26 - Anything Goes

Here is my finished card and this is the view to show you when the card is closed and can be tied with ribbon.

and here is the view when this is opened.

Here is a closer view on the cute Ebony image

Side view of this card

I embossed the yellow DP to add texture, used MS punch to punch the grass, and added the two metal mushroom accents to match with this stamp.

That's all I have to share with you today and hope you enjoy this card. Thank you again to stop by and hope to share more projects with you soon :o)
