Anything but a Card at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is Anything but a Card. This challenge will last 4 weeks.

I made a tissue box to help decorate for my son's first birthday party! We had a superhero theme and I had a ton of fun making themed foods and decorations. It was a wonderful celebration and we're so proud of our little superhero!




Here are some other photos from the party. Seems like yesterday that my design team sisters at IAAS welcomed our little dude into the world with a blog hop in in his honor!




We dressed up as She Hulk, the Hulk, and Bruce Banner!

Wild Paradise with the UnstampaBelles


Our theme this month at the UnstampaBelles challenge is Paradise Pretties and Tropical Delights, with the optional twist of Into the Wild. You need to follow the twist to be considered as the DT Favorite, but you only have to follow main theme to win our prize. And remember, no stamps!


The "wild" flamingo is a woven decal. The mug/straw/pineapple dies are from an Elizabeth Craft set. I die-cut the letters from a yellow patterned paper.  I added some mulberry flowers and accents with a gold pearl pen.

The base card is made with a double-sided paper from Graphic45; check out the pretty inside:

Be sure to check out the fabulous projects by my teammates the UnstampaBelles this month!

Fierce Knights -- UK Myths & Legends at International Art & Soul

This fortnight at the International Art & Soul Challenge our challenge is UK Myths & Legends.

I chose the legend of Saint George and the Dragon. The dragon-patterned paper as well as the sentiment stamps are from Echo Park. The other papers are from Graphic 45. The base card and pop-up element are cut using and Elizabeth Craft die set. I had lots of fun making this card, and it's for a very special someone for his birthday.

Frosty Friends -- Coffee Loving Cardmakers

http://coffeelovingcardmakers.com/
It's that time again: the Autumn/Winter Blog Hop with the Coffee Loving Cardmakers! I always enjoy playing along.

The sentiment is from a Stamps of Life set. The adorable paper is from Doodlebug Designs. The digi stamp is "Snowman Cocoa" from Bugaboo Stamps (although I'm not sure that it's available anymore.) The coffee bean die cuts are from an Elizabeth Crafts set; the shapes are from a Sizzix set.

Am I the only one who like iced coffee drinks even in cold weather‽ The original digi stamp has the snowman holding a stack of marshmallows, but I fussy-cut the frosty beverage from the Doodlebug paper for a little personalization!
