Simply Moovelous at Pause Dream Enjoy

Hello Everyone,
The challenge at Pause Dream Enjoy began earlier today. I know I am a little late posting, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to share even with everything that has been going on at school. Not ready to share about the changes, but when the time is right I will.   

This Week's Challenge...
~ Photo Inspiration ~
I (secretly) want to be a cow farmer. I would like to be able to collect and/or rescue cows and put them in a big pasture so they can graze all day. This cow makes me happy and that is how I want to feel ALL day ~ EVERY day!

Here is my Design Team project...

I added wiggly eyes with big lashes, which make her even cuter. The pattern papers are by American Crafts ~ Hello Spring stack and the stitched line tag-corner rectangle frame is from My Favorite Things.

The stamped sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas.
Other Challenges:

Hope you will join us at Pause Dream Enjoy this week for our "Photo Inspiration ~ "Cowchallenge. Be sure to check out how the other design team member's interpreted the photo.

Stay Creative,

3-2-1: I Turtley Adore You at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Diva Fans!
Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by!
Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.

This Week's Challenge...
~ 3- 2 - 1 ~
You must use 3 pattern papers, 2 embellishments, and 1 ribbon or bow.

Here is my Design Team project...
I had two these pattern papers sitting on my craft table and decided to finally use them...I just had to choose a third piece to fit the challenge. I used two skittles from DoubleClick and finally added a twine bow for the third component of the 3-2-1. 

I used the following sketch from Sunday Stamps.

I just received the MFT turtle in the mail and had to use it right away. After I stamped it, I realized I should have used my daughter's technique. She heat embosses the stamped image with clear embossing powder. It makes a sharp outline and prevents bleeding. If I have time after school, I may give it another try and replace my image. 
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "3-2-1challenge. 

Stay Creative,

Happy Springy Friday!
Today brings a special blog hop which combines Cut It Up and Die Cuttin' Divas design team members.

Here is my project:
I just love treat bags and boxes. What better way to tell someone you are thinking about them than with a pretty gift (This Jamie Cripps large gift box is from Silhouette Design Store). Give them a flower that will last, along with something they like (maybe candy, nail polish, craft goodies, or a gift card).  

I cut the flowers on my Cameo and the tiny tags with my Cuttlebug. The pattern paper is Hello Spring by American Crafts (I found this stack at Tuesday Mornings.).

Ribbon, twine, and gems were in the stash. 

I am also offering a prize...a surprise goodie pack of crafting supplies.

Golfer's Day at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Diva Fans!
Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by!
Today I am sharing the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Divas.

This Week's Challenge...
~ Golfer's Day ~
We did watch some of The Masters this past weekend. We were rooting for Ricki Fowler although we like many of the other players. He had a great game, so maybe next year he will win. Have you ever seen The Golf Boys videos? The first one is Oh Oh Oh and the other is 2.Oh.

Here is my Design Team project...
When I saw this golf bag, I thought it was going to be a cool treat.  While preparing, cutting, and assembling I was not impressed (the instructions were not very clear). It was a bit complicated and the size really is giant. I was at Wal-Mart last night after 9pm buying this huge candy bar, so I could get it all done. I would have preferred a regular size candy bar then I could make a bunch. Now that I am finished, it is pretty neat (but I was not thinking that along the way). 

The other side...
Hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Golfer's Daychallenge. 

Stay Creative,

It's Your Day to Smile or Say Hooray


We celebrated my daughter's birthday today. She will be 20 on Monday, but she came home for the weekend since we wouldn't be able to go to dinner or have Betty Cake on her actual day. Before going to Red Robin I started these cards and when we returned I finished them. 

My thought was to combine the sketch and color challenge at My Favorite Things. Goal accomplished! I am pretty pleased that the colors and layout worked. 

I started with the MFT gray cardstock and coral gingham from the Tiny Check stack, and then added the white and blue cardstock.   

The colors for MFT Challenge 90.

 I used the Happy Hippo stamp set along with Spectrum Noir markers.

Rather than adding the extra papers to the scrap pile, I just made a second one. I used the MFT Scribble Rose and Double the Smile die sets.

All the pieces were cut with my Cuttlebug. I have thought about getting a Big Kick/Big Shot, but with my machine cutting just fine I have decided to wait. 

Other Challenges:

Excited that I was able to complete these two.
