Freestyle Friday 29-2018

Today I can just play with paper and stamps  :)  I chose stamps from a stamp set (source unknown - it was sent as a gift).

Here is my card:

The stamps are stamped with brown ink on ivory card stock.  I inked the edges with brown ink and fussy cut the cup of coffee and coffee beans and oval cut the sentiments with my Big Shot.  The paper is from Coordinations.  I love plaid!  I used the yellow to accent and the polka dots are also from Coordinations.  I cut a 8 1/2 X 4 1/4 inch panel and creased it to make the Z card base.  I attached the brown Z then covered it with the plaid panels.  My best friend and I eat breakfast every Saturday morning and the waitress knows to bring our coffee without asking - she will be getting this card in the mail! ~ Gracie

Thursday in 3D 29-2018

Coming up with something 3D is always a challenge!  But I have a cruise coming up and my Bestie is going with me.  The cruise line we are going on no longer gives you the chocolate at turn down so I am planning on taking some Andies mints to surprise her.  The box I made today will be perfect!

Here is the box:

I used a Silhouette cut file.  I love the polka dot flip flops!  I attached the flowers in the center with a large brad (any excuse to use a brad is a good excuse - there is a never-ending supply floating around in my craft room!)  I used the super duper red double sided tape on the folds of the box so it would keep its shape on its way to New Orleans hid away in my carry on bag.  I know she is going to love it! ~ Gracie

Wow Wednesday 29-2018

It's Wow Wednesday!  Time to take a previous card and make it sparkle and shine!  After sitting and looking at yesterday's card I thought it was just not "enough".  If you know me, you know I'm all about that bling!

Here is the card before I worked on it:

And here is the card when I completed it!

I started by removing my sentiment with Undu (love it - adhesive is still sticky after coming off perfectly and drying!)  I added double-sided tape and dug out some glitter (yes, glitter - now my table is sparkly) and applied it to the tape pressing the glitter down and shaking off the excess.  That's when my table got sparkly!  I moved the chain on the treasure box to make it look like it is lying on the ocean floor and attached it with a glue dot.  I added the brass clock with a glue dot where a printed clock was on her tail.  Then I spruced up her hair with a bit more color (Prismacolor pencils( and added blue gel pen highlights.  Then I gave her a crown.  I really like the second version better! ~ Gracie
