Cardztv 3D Challenge - Anything Goes!

Welcome to my blog today!
I am featuring a lovely
2 layer card and when you look at it
you may think "where's the 3D?"

I have started to use a product called Fun Foam
that you can purchase from Amazon or even from the
craft store.  I have a full layer of foam (instead of small pieces
of foam tape) under the one layer.
By using this full layer of foam, I find
that my cards mail better and make it
to their destination without damage.


Look how pretty these cards turned out!

SIMPLE THOUGHTS is one of my all time favorite
sentiment stamp sets from Cardztv Stamps!
Just look at that stunning font!


Again, even though you cannot see the foam layer
it makes a nice smooth surface and the dimension
that is perfect for a two layer card.

Do you like it?

If you are just starting the Blog Hop with me,
here's the full line up of all
my crafty friends!

Teacher Treats - Cardztv 3D Challenge

I have a heart for teachers!  Love them!
They have to have patience beyond normal and do
what many of us moms could never do!

Here in Indiana/Michigan, our teachers and kids
still have a summer break of about 2 1/2 months.

With the Cardztv 3D challenge, I decided instead of a
"treat", I would make a mini album and
give to a well deserving teacher.  This way they can chronicle
their summer fun and have the album already
put together.

Here are three snapshots but look below
as I've added in a quick video showing you more
detail and the exact Cardztv Stamp set that I used.




Here's the video!







Okay, now it's your turn to make a
gift for a teacher!  Pick someone who could
really use a pick me up!  They will love their 
treat!  Don't forget to click on all
of my Cardztv Design Team Sisters links!
They are all so talented!

Thanks for stopping!

Easter 3D treats!

On my Instagram feed the other day
I saw this cute little
bunny die that was too cute for 
words and I knew I had to have him.
He is from Lil' Inkers.  He cut beautifully
in my Cuttlebug and just so you know, I have
about 70 of these to make for work, but
I'm sharing with you now.

Isn't he the cutest????
I did use a Peachy Keen face, but
there are faces that come
in the die set.



Here's a basket FULL of bunnies!


I used two sets of Cardztv Stamps, 
EASTER PUNNIES & GOING IN CIRCLES

I used Easter Punnies on the banner tag
and Going in Circles under the candy.



Hop on over to Cardztv Stamps
to pick up your new stamps today!

Now you have until March 31 to link
up your own 3D Easter box or goodie bag
on Mary's site.

I can't wait to see what you create!

SPRING! I can't wait!

Hi all you Cardztv fans!
I am excited about Spring and even with
snow on the ground, I know it's coming.

The 3D Challenge for this week is
a spring home decor product and I'm so
excited to show you mine!

I used the Cardztv St. Patrick's Day stamp set
to create my tissue box cover for spring.
I cut the largest saying apart, placing it
exactly where I wanted it to go
and divided it into two panels.

Here's the first panel.

Here's the second Panel.

I added in some shamrock die cuts
and sequins and my project is done!


Look at this awesome set!

I apologize for my dark photos!
No sun here in Indiana (we have snow and ice).

Make sure you add your 3D spring home decor
project over on Cardztv.blogspot.com.

Thanks for stopping by!

Cardztv 3D Card Challenge

I love shaker cards!
I love being on the Cardztv 3D Design Team!
Today I get to share with you
both of my loves!!!

 You know us crafty people enable each other all
the time!  I have had this little heat sealer
from We R Memory Keepers for over a year
and it was still in the package.  I've been seeing
these adorable 3D clear pocket shaker cards
and had to try one of my own.

Oh my word - this was so easy, it wasn't funny.

I started with a clear acetate pocket that I store my 
stamps in and sealed three sides.  Then I put in my 
Starbucks gift card and add in my
sequins.  Then I sealed the last side.

I added a couple of die cuts and a banner tag with
 a cute sentiment from Cardztv Stamps called Critter Captions.

Here's close up!


I cut a small piece of paper to go 
on the back of my gift card and used two
more Cardztv Stamp sets, Brew Ha Ha and Happy Days.


One of the best parts about Cardztv stamps, is that
they all fit together nicely on your projects.
On this project I used 3 different stamp
sets all together and they look awesome.

What a wonderful investment into your
craft room!  Join the rest of 
the Design Team and create your own
3D Birthday Card and add
to the Cardztv website!

Contest runs from 2/19-3/3.

 Come on - get creating!!!
