Love making 3x3 cards with Cardztv Stamps!

If you have followed my blog
you know that I have a love for 
making 3x3 cards.  Mary from
Cardztv created an awesome set called
Mini Messages that contains almost any
sentiment you might need.

My BFF is having an anniversary soon
and I plan to make a treat from my kitchen to
take to her.  The 3x3 cards are a perfect compliment
to gifts like this.


I had a new diecut from My Creative Time that
I had not used yet so it was the perfect anchor
for my card.  I made my own banner and
stamped Happy Anniversary from the Mini
Messages set and added it as the final
touch.  A few sequins and a Wink of Stella
pen was all I needed to finish my project.

Thank you for stopping by my blog.
Don't forget to enter the challenge at Cardztv.
You have until July 27th to link up
your creation.

Happy Crafting!

Cardztv Mailbox Smiles Challenge #5

Who doesn't love a deal?
I don't know of anyone who doesn't want
to save some money.
Two weeks ago I shared a die that
I purchased from Amazon on my challenge card.
Today I'm showing you another one.

I've been wanting this die for a long time, but
everyone that had one, it was just more money than I wanted to spend.
In steps in Amazon and it's
amazing pricing.  I love this die and encourage
you to do some searching if you also like die to
use in your Big Shot or Cuttlebug.

It's a rainbow!!!!
Obviously I cut out 6 of these and then layers the
pieces to create my rainbow!  I just love
this die!  I finished off with a couple other dies for the
edges of my top layer and then two more dies
for the sentiment.  Pretty Pink Posh sequins
finished up my project!




I used the Cardztv This and That set for my sentiment
and I CUT IT APART!  Trust me people this
is part of the beauty of clear stamps.  Just use a good pair of shears
and cut carefully.  I can now put this phrase on the
bottom of a front panel on a card or even use it on the inside.

Thank you for stopping by!

Cardztv Mailbox Smiles Design Team Challenge #4

Welcome to the 4th Challenge for
the Cardztv Mailbox Smiles Team!

I'm excited to bring you one of my 
favorite card designs - an awesome SHAKER card!

I sort of have a thing for things that sparkle
and when shaker cards started to make an appearance
I was all over the process.
I  like to shop on Amazon and one
evening while browsing a "die" popped up as a
suggestion from something I put in my cart.  I loved
the die, but I loved the price even more!  It
was like $3.99!  That is a steal compared
to what I normally pay for dies so I was 
curious and I wanted to see if the die actually
delivered a good strong cut.

Guess what???  It did!
Here's my shaker card:

I used the Cardztv Mixed Messages sentiment
which fit perfectly in the center window of the die cut.

I actually used the die 6 times and glued 5 of them
together for the depth to allow my shaker bits to move
around.  I took the top die and glued a piece of acetate
on for the window portion.  I had fun picking out some
shaker bits to match the color scheme and then I
placed the top die cut.



I love how it turned out and I'm pretty sure
whoever I decide to send to will certainly
"get their happy on"!

Thanks for stopping by!
Make sure and join the challenge and post
your creation on Cardztv blog page.

Happy crafting!

Cardztv Challenge #3 - Anything Goes

Hi crafty friends!
I hope your summer is off to a
beautiful start!  It doesn't seem possible that
we are already into June.

I plan to retire in late 2017 so I've
been trying to decide what to do when that happens
as I won't do well if I don't have SOMETHING to do.
So I've started a little side business and needed
some thank you notes to add in with 
my orders as they ship.

I reached for....................
You guessed it - Mini Messages Stamp Set
from Cardztv.  I LOVE THIS SET!


The 3x3 card is the perfect size to put in
the order bag - and just the right size to 
jot a quick personal thank you.
And who wouldn't like a little
chocolate?  I love to make these little notes and
now that Cardztv has this stamp set you can make
them for any occasion!

Join Mary and her team and take the challenge!
Create an Anything Goes project and post to Mary's
blog!  You could be a winner!

Thank you for stopping by!

Cardztv Mailbox Hugs Challenge #2

I am in love with this Tiny Greetings
stamp set from Cardztv Stamps!  It is not
only beautiful but a tremendous value.  I don't
think Mary left one thing out of this set.

I've been using it on smaller projects but
look how cute it is on this A2 size card.


Look how simple, yet elegant that tiny font is for
this sympathy card!  I love using this pop of pink 
(bright green would be awesome also) against that
layer of black cardstock.  I love the edge die to add
some detail, but oh my, this was an easy card!

This was also my first time at using Nuvo drops and I liked them.
I pulled out my black and grey stamp pads, and I just started building
this image with a floral stamp set.  If you have a vine set, that would be
lovely as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!  We would love to see your
creations - so join us in this challenge at Cardztv.
Who knows?  You may win the challenge and get a
free stamp set!

Have a great weekend!
