Gold Makes Me Happy

Happy Friday Everyone!
Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by.  Today is my day to post at Eyelet Outlet and Brads. 

Here is my Design Team project...
With graduation, retirements, and lots of birthdays quickly approaching in the next couple of weeks, I decided to use the colors black, white, and gold to stay elegant and gender neutral. 

I created the background by laying the gold washi tape in diagonals strips.Then I cut the card mat with a MFT die from Blueprint 24. The inkadinkadoo sentiment was stamped with Versamark ink then Ebony embossing powder was heated. 

I punched a few small holes and inserted the gold glitter brads into the MFT stitched circle before applying pop dots for dimension.

I used the following products from Eyelet Outlet and Brads shop.

Gold Glitter Brads

PPS ~ Challenge #41

Happy Wednesday!
It is also FSA Math Day, but I would rather focus on something less stressful. How about a challenge! They can be fun since you have so many options.

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
We are having major changes in our school district and I know some of the people being effected. I wanted to make a card, so I could cheer up at least one person.

The stamped sentiment is by My Favorite Things ~ Encouraging set.
Now, I hope you will  join us this week for the Paper Play Sketches challenge. Be sure to visit the other Design Team members to see how they interpreted the sketch.

Welcome Polka Dots and Chevron

Happy Tuesday!
It's Die Cuttin' Diva day!

This Week's Challenge...
~ Polka Dots and/or Chevron ~

Here is my Design Team project...
A co-worker asked me to make a baby card, but she loves them personalized. I love polka dots and chevrons, so what a great opportunity to combine the two.

I used My Favorite Things dies ~ Stitched Rectangle Scallop Frames and the onesis was cut on my Cameo. The personalized info was printed on my computer then cut with a MFT stitched circle die. The stamp  ~ Scrappy Moms Stamps, the bow, and sequins were added last.

I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Polka Dots and/or Chevronschallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.

After adhering all the layers of card stock I added white ribbon and the clear flower gems.

Animal Cookies are Inspirational

Welcome back to Carson's Creations and thanks for stopping by!

Today, I am sharing If You Give a Crafter a Cookie's new challenge. These are quite creative challenges...you have a picture of a cookie (yes, a cookie) and you use it as inspiration to create your project....a card, a layout, a tag, a gift bag...anything!

This Week's Challenge...

Here is my Design Team project...
I love animals...domestic, farm, zoo, wild...it doesn't matter.  I told my class if I could have another career it would be a cow farmer (they laughed and thought I was joking). Animals bring joy and make me happy, especially my dog. Here is card to honor her. : )

Looking For Shaped Card at Die Cuttin' Divas

Hello Everyone,

It's Tuesday! We just started 3 weeks of testing season, 6 weeks left of this school year, 2 weeks until my daughter comes home from college for summer break, 2 months of fixing up Kyle's house with a little bit more, and we are still going strong. It's been busy (extremely) and we still need to keep plugging away. Looking forward to having more free time soon.  

Today the new challenge at Die Cuttin' Diva starts. 

This Week's Challenge...
~ Shaped Cards ~

Here is my Design Team project...
I had a few different projects planned (tool box, coffee cup, mixer), but decided to go with my original thought of using a paint palette (Too Cute by Jessica). I was going to using the palette as the base shape, but I didn't like the hole cut-out so I found a bracket shaped base that I cut on my Cameo.

I chose this SEI pattern paper (Cheery Brights) since it had all the colors of the paint splotches. The stamped sentiment is by Jaded Blossom ~ Dream in Color stamp set. The sequins were an after thought, but I like that the colors match.
I hope you will join us at Die Cuttin' Divas this week for our "Shaped Cardchallenge. Be sure to check out the other design team projects.
