Sizzix Butterfly Lantern

Hello my friends and fellow crafters!  For today's post, here is a cute little project using the Sizzix Butterfly Lantern die.  What fun these little lanterns were to create.  I placed tea lights inside them and they are just darling.  I could image using these at place settings for a dinner party or for a holiday tablescape.

The lanterns were cut on heavy black cardstock (the kind that Michael's sells now)  Viva Inka Gold paint in silver was rubbed onto the cardstock to create this beautiful metallic antique look to the lantern. 
As you can see I used various colorations of flowers for the lanterns.  The Flowers were created with Tim Holtz Tiny Tattered floral die.  The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch.
These are just so pretty.  So many possibilities.  In fact, I did them in another configuration that I will be posting soon.  So keep checking as I have lots more projects to share.  Until next time, Happy Crafting!

Penny Black Pansy Bouquet Card

 Hello friends.  Today's card was created with a Penny Black wood mounted rubber stamp.  The name on the stamp is Pansy Bouquet.  The stamp is so pretty.  For coloring inspiration, I googled "Pansies" for some ideas on how to color these sweet flowers.
 Pansies are a french word meaning thought or remembrance.  This card is going in my stash for when I want to let someone know I am thinking of them.  The stamped image was cut out on my Brother Cut N Scan.  I love that machine-it cuts a perfect border around the stamp.  The image was then mounted on a Spellbinders Lacy Circle and again on a Joy! Craft Square Frame.  Spellbinders Triple Floral is the next die and the background is a Martha Stewart Pansy Punch Around the Page Punch.
 Wink of Stella was used on the stamped image-you can't see it in the picture.  It was the first time I used it.  I still think I love and prefer Stickles.  For the corner adornment, just the pansy was cut out and mounted on a Cottage Cutz leaf die. 
Thanks so much for stopping by today.  I have more projects to share this week.  Be sure to check back soon.  Until next time......Happy Crafting!

Baby Shower Decorations

Greetings everyone! Back today with the last of the Shower decorations and a few pictures of the Baby Shower.  This banner was created on the Cricut with Mother's Day Floral Bouquet and Fontastic Fonts cartridge.  A fun project and here are all the banners that I made:
 Here is the banner that says Sweet Baby Girl outside the food tent.
The other banner with "Emma" was inside the tent.  This is how the decorations from previous post on my blog were set up.  I created the cake and placed Rosettes in the center that I made as the cake topper.  The cake plate is the type you can thread ribbon through to match your cake.  I tied tulle to make a tutu on the base....super cute.
 Here is the back yard before the guest arrived.  It was so pretty.  There were tiki torches for the evening.    If you would like to see more details and get products used, there are two videos to watch that are attached here.  Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Crafting!
