Happy Halloween Bingo Card

Standard

Hi, I can’t believe it is Halloween time again!  I just had to share this card with you!

I used Graphic 45 paper and cut the small card  for the embellishment.  I love bingo cards, and so i used my embossing folder to add this element.  I also used Tim Holtz’s ticket die to cut 2 tickets out of pattern paper and then added a candy embellishment to add dimension to the ribbon.

Please enjoy and thanks for stopping by!Image

VALENTINE HOME DECOR IDEA

Standard

I USED THE NEW VICTORIAN ROMANCE CARTRIDGE FOR THIS PROJECT.  IT WAS FUN AND REASONABLY EASY.  I USED K&CO PAPER AND ADDED LACE AND TULLE.  I ALSO USED THE CRICUT LOVE CART TO CUT OUT THE HEART THAT IS ON THE CONE.  YOU CAN ADD RIBBON AND HANG OR FILL  IT WITH CANDY FOR YOUR FAVORITE VALENTINE!

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!  MELISSA

I used the sizzix time piece embossing folder with tan cardstock. I then used Lost and

Found Paper and used it for the basic piece.  I then added some lace and red ric rac

and put a flower with a metal brad in the center.  I inked the project to add depth…

I used Tim Holtz’s Chain and hung a key on it.  I stamped a mannequin image to set

it apart and added a heart embellishment to this too!  Of course, i added bling around

the edges too!  I inked it in several places with different color inks to make it stand out!

Enjoy!  Thanks for stopping over!  Melissa

THANKS FOR JOINING ME!  I am very excited to do this hop! We all know how much getting a card can make our day, especially when we aren’t feeling our best!  I really hope this card will brighten a child’s day as they are all so precious!  For this card I used paper that I got from Target no less!  I used a K&Co valentine card from their card stack which I layered on fiber paper and added some red ribbon.  I also added a 3-D heart embellishment onto the card.  Again, easy fun and you need to make one too!  I hope you enjoy this!

Welcome to the hop!   We hope you will enjoy hopping with us!  If you just came from

Shannon – http://www.purplelionpaper.com/blog/ then you are in the right spot..I hope you will enjoy this atc card!

I used glittery card stock which i used the Tim Holtz atc card die. I then used the cricut elegant edges cartridge to cut out a circle for the background of the K& Co. embellishment I chose.  It is hard to see in the picture, but it is a reindeer in a snow globe with glitter snow.  I then used silver ribbon to add shine and a metal flower to finish it off.  Thanks for stopping by.  Stop by again tomorrow!  Melissa

FOR THIS CARD I USED THE MY MINDS EYE GLITTER CHRISTMAS CARD STOCK! I USED A K AND COMPANY TAG WITH A LITTLE GIRL THAT SAYS LET IT SNOW.  THIS IS A LITTLE HARD TO SEE IN THE PICTURE.  I USED ELEGANT EDGES BY CRICUT TO CUT OUT THE BACK TAG AND STAMPED IT WITH A SNOWFLAKE.  THE NEX PIECE THAT I ATTACHED THE LITTLE GIRL TO IS A PIECE OF CARDSTOCK CUT OUT WITH TIM HOLTZ’S ATC CARD DIE.  I USED HIS TINY ATTACHER TO ATTACH THE GIRL.  I ADDED A SPARKLY SNOWFLAKE AND THEN I USED GOLD RIBBON TO FINISH IT.

Thanks for stopping by, please come back tomorrow for another great project.

Thank you again for checking out my project… Now hop on over to (the next blog stop)  Kristen – http://fantabulouslypink.blogspot.com/

The brownies above are very easy and delicious! Just make your favorite brownie recipe and before you bake them, chop some macadamia nuts, about 1/2 cup and fold into the batter.  Bake as your recipe instructs…cool and enjoy!

The  card was just kinda crazy but i thought fun as it was a cookie theme!  Just basic Christmas paper and a big bow!  Thanks for stopping by!  Melissa
