Christmas Cloche # 3

This mini cloche # 3 is another deer scene. I used a tiny tree and a brown deer. To me these are magical. I think it is my inner little girl that delights in these. It stands 3" tall.  This is best seen if you look at it up close, to see all the details.

Christmas Cloche # 2

Here is another tiny cloche I made. It is 3.5" tall.  I will be selling these at a local craft fair (yes Dianne!). This one is a snowman and winter baubles. I added a glittered paper background behind the snowman. If you pull this up close you can see all the little details. I love the magic and whimsy of Christmas!

Christmas Cloche


How stinkin' cute is this? I love how it turned out! I bought these tiny cloches online. They stand 3" tall. This one is all silver and white. A tiny silver deer...love it! I added vintage rhinestone chain all around the base to add sparkle. I am having a lot of fun making these.  More to come...

Halloween haunted house









I had a lot of fun making this little haunted house. It's made of card stock. There is vellum in the windows which give the tea light inside a soft glow. Look closely, there is a skeleton hand coming out of the ground by the gravestone, an owl, a skull and lots of bats flying around.

It's that time of year


As soon as the weather turns, I turn...to Halloween, Fall, Orange, crispy leaves. I do love summer but I also enjoy the changing seasons. So now it's time for Halloween cards. I love making them! I have some grandchildren who will receive these. I used the new Tim Holtz 'pumpkin head' stamps for the awesome pumpkins. I colored them with orange markers. I used a brick embossing folder on the background and stamped random webs, spiders, bats and such. I added brads in the corners for a finished look. The fences are diecuts. 
Happy Crafting!

Finally doing some paper crafting

It's been awhile! summer came and with that came lots of company, as I live near the Atlantic ocean and so I get lots of summer company. Then I did a lot of traveling too. So now I have a pocket of days to craft before my next group of visitors arrives.







For the paper and flowers I used Heartfelt Creations paper and flower dies. The sentiment is from Altenew.  The flower centers are prills- so cool, they come in all different colors.  I stamped the flowers with a background stamp for more interest and each one also has wink-of-Stella shimmer on them.  I made this for a friend who's favorite color is purple.   
Happy Crafting!

pop up card

I made this for my granddaughter's upcoming birthday. (I added "happy birthday" to the front). The fun thing about these pop up cards is that they lay flat and so you can mail them. When opened, they 'pop' open. I think that is a fun way to send a card!  I didn't use any dies for this, as I don't own any. I found a tutorial on YouTube that was very easy to follow. I just goggled 'pop up card tutorials'.
Happy Crafting!
