Blog Hop with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Paper House Productions

Good morning friends!  I am excited to participate in the blog hop between Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L and Paper House Productions.  I merged the two product lines together by creating a shaker card! I used two paper lines from Paper House, as well as the Cherry Blossom snapshot you see in the background of the card.
Hello Shaker Card by Michele Kovack for Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L/PHP BHop17
I created the shaker portion using a frame, Cherry Blossom’s snapshot, and acetate square from Paper House’s Let Freedom Ring Collection. I used Crafty Foam Tape between layers.

I added a sticker sentiment, heart, and arrow border from the Discover USA Collection directly on top of the acetate.  The red and green patterned paper are from the same collection.  I adore these papers so much! They remind me of an all American picnic! I adhered all of the layers onto my white card stock using E-Z Squares.

Stamping and Die Cuts!

Good morning!  How was your Easter?  
Mine was probably one of the best one's I've had in a very long time! The weather was gorgeous! My entire family made it and the food turned out perfect! 
Today I have a card that I shared on the SRM blog a few days ago. It uses their new Heaven and Earth stamp set.
The clouds were stamped and heat embossed in white.  I stamped the mountains on a separate piece of card stock and then colored them in using Water Color Twist Pencils. I used a white gel pen to add snow to the tops of the mountains. I also added "water" to the front of the mountains and the reflection of the sun.  I adhered it to the sky using crafty foam tape.  I glued a small felt circle for the sun and added rays with a Copic marker.  
I stamped the sentiment and added shadows with a gray Copic marker.  I tied a bit of Marigold Twine and a few sequins. The entire image was placed over a kraft die cut filigreed square from Spellbinders.  
Thank you so much for popping in today!

Stampin' Up! Happy Easter!

Good morning!
I need to get an assistant, I think, to help me get these blog posts up!  ;) 
But in any event, I got my booty on the computer and managed to squeak in this card!
I borrowed this cute Stampin' Up set from my Mother-in-law and colored it with Copic markers.  I added a bit of glimmer with a Wink of Stella pen.  
The cute plaid paper is from Lawn Fawn.  I added a bit of satin ribbon, a pink posie, and a few sequins.   
Thank you for stopping by!

Rainbow Trees

Who doesn't love a good rainbow color scheme?  With glitter to top it off?
That's what I did here with SRM's new set called, Heaven and Earth.  I stamped the trees on white card stock in a rainbow pattern and then added clear Stickles for a bit of sparkle and dimension. 
I wanted to "ground" the trees so I added a bit of shadow under each one using a gray Copic marker.  I lined up my sentiment using my Mini Misti and added coordinating rhinestones.  I tore the top and mounted it on a piece of black card stock.  I tore the top of that one too.  
I tied Marigold twine vertically and adhered a purple rhinestone to the center. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today!

I used lots and lots of Crafty Foam Tape between each layer.  Can you say obsessed with this stuff? It is definitely my go to adhesive!
I added a strip of Lawn Fawn plaid paper behind the image, a bit of twine, a vellum flower, and a few sequins to finish the card off.

Clear Treat Box Perfect for Easter!

Howdy and happy Thursday to you!  It is raining and storming here in Chicago like crazy! 
Trees are down, water in basements, siding blown off....it's been going on for about 24 hours and it is making me crazy! (I hate storms because I am a huge scaredy cat!)
So what's a girl to do when she is nervously waiting for the storm to pass?
Yep.
Craft.
I created this clear triangular treat box for SRM. 
I adhered a doily to the edge as a base for my watercolored/glittered Quickutz eggs.  I am total old school with my Quickutz.  I remember back in the day when they were super popular, us crafty girls would compare which dies we had and squeal when we got a brand new one! (Or maybe that was just me?  Because I am kind of a dork that way?)
I adhered a spring sentiment on white paper and then a strip of black paper to make it pop.  I placed it on top of my eggs with foam tape.  For my final touch I tied a bow with charcoal twine and glued a rhinestone to the center. 
As soon as it gets light out here, I can assess the damage to my house and property. Fun times.
I am praying that there is minimal damage.
This weekend the forecast looks warm and sunny.....so I just need to get through today and then I am home free!
Have a wonderful day!
Thank you all for stopping by!
