Snowflake Warm Hearts Card with Beth

Good Monday Morning!  Beth from Beth's Beauties here with you today to share this wintery card.
 I created it using the Snowflake Cutaway Two-Fold A7 card from SnapDragon Snippets.  It was a very straight forward card to assemble.  The papers I used were from Craft Smith's Ice Crystals stack and DCWV's Glitzy Glitter stack.  I tied the card shut with Totally White Trendy Twine.
 The sentiment was cut with dark brown vinyl.  I love cutting sentiments out of vinyl because it always cuts flawlessly and the adhesive is already on the back!  Since transfer tape is used, no worries about spacing either :)
 Here is a look at the card all opened up.  I embellished the snowflake with White Nuvo Crystal Drops.  Adhesives used include ATG and Lineco Adhesive in a precision tip bottle.  More details can be found on my blog.

I hope you have a wonderfully crafty day!

Paper Fun Part 1

Hello all. I-team member Sonja here with a Valentine's inspired project. This is a two part post. The second half to this set will be posted on Wednesday, January 24th and it is the grand finale to this project. A must see, so tune back in!

I received the newest double sided stack from DCWV called the Wild Side. It has all sorts of different types of animal prints and textures. When I saw the Cheetah print set, I knew immediately I wanted to make the 3D Stiletto. Which then led to doing a matching tie, 2 champagne flutes, and 1 stand.  All four files can be found on SnapDragon Snippets page or the Silhouette Store.

The great thing with the double sided stacks is that you don't have to decorate the other side of the project.
However, I decided I wanted the inside to be black with a gold insole and a black glitter heel.
Those tiny little clothes pins are great to have on hand while working with 3D projects.
So I found it easier to form the shoe first and then add in the sole.
 First one down
 Can't have a sassy heel without some bling!

I was able to tie in part 1 and 2 of this project with the ribbon, bling, and matching handmade flowers.

Materials Used: 

DCWV Wild Side 12 x 12 Double Sided stack

DCWV Glitzy Glitter stack
Core d' nations Black 12 x 12 cardstock
K&Company Adhesive Gems
Jolee-s Adhesive Gems
Offray Ribbon
Silhouette Design Store
Silhouette Cameo 3
Silhouette Studio~Designer Edition
Aleene's Original Tacky Glue

The Post-Christmas-Blues.....

....yup! There is such a thing. I suffer from it BIG time! That creative void or vaccum where you don't know what to make or create. Seems like you been totally busy and's quiet. Totally blank.
I sat down last night - tired from being up way too late New Years Eve and really really lazy. I started going through different projects I could create (I do that sometimes - kinda planning ahead) and there it was!
The cute 3D Snow Globe Box from the JGW Snow Flurries kit (also found here in the Silhouette Design Store) and I decided to make my own version of it ;-)

All I really did was make an octagon-shaped hole in the middle and layer it with some vellum so light can shine through. Then I too one of the snow flakes from the Snow Flake Hanging Card from the SDS Ornament kit (or design #22717 in the Silhouette Design Store) and cut out 4 of them and then glued them side to side to make a 3D snow flake to hang in the middle of the Snow Globe.

Finally I put in a color shifting LED light into the box and voila!

I do think it's fun when imagination runs wild and you can come up with new ways to make things.
Thanks for joining me today - I hope you came into 2018 with happiness and a big bang and I look forward to showing you lots of new projects.

New Years Eve Decorations

Hello again and Happy Sunday.
It's New Years Eve tonight (Yay) and that is a special occasion around my house. My hubby and two boys are more excited for this evening than for their Birthday or even for Christmas. So naturally we make a big deal out of it - even if we're only 4 or 5 people around to celebrate it.
Every year I make decorations for New Years Eve and some is kept for next year and some don't survive (yes it gets pretty wild around here)
This year I set my eyes on the new Candles in Three Sizes for LED Tea Lights from an upcoming kit from SVG Attic. Watch for it in a set next summer for early Christmas crafting. You can also find the Candles in the Snapdragon Snippets store or in the Silhouette Design Store.

These are very easy to make and I made all three in a jiffy. I decided that since they are meant as decor for New Years Eve, I not only wanted them to be candles but to look like small crackers/fireworks as well.  The little "fuse" or paper flame is included with the candles and is simply assembled by rolling it on a pencil or something similar and gluing the tube together. Then curl the long strips. I just put it over the LED flame but you can also glue it inside the candle hole.
I made the candles in AC Cardstock in Black and decorated them with AC POW glitter paper with a chevron pattern in silver.
And what is New Years Eve without  Champagne or Champagne glasses?
So I made two 3D Champagne Glasses from the JGW New Years Celebration kit

I didn't use acetate on mine or decorated them with gems or stones but kept them in the same color scheme as the rest of my decorations: Black, White and Silver. I don't plan for using them for candy but I might use them as candle holders - a LED Tea Light fits perfectly in them.
I used AC Cardstock in White for the glasses and decorated them with AC POW glitter paper in Silver and Black. On the top of the glasses I put some glitter washi tape from my stash.
I must say that these were also very easy to make. The trick is to use a pencil or wooden dowel inside the stem as it helps to hold the top onto the stem and makes it more sturdy.
Well that was what I had to show you today. I wish a Happy New Year to all of you and hope to see you a lot more in 2018

A Toast To Your New Year

Hello and thanks for joining me today.
I just want to show you the card I made for my friends Birthday (it's today: Happy Birthday Sys!)
Usually I don't want to make Christmas themed cards for people who has Birthday around Christmas or New Year themed cards for those, who's Birthday is close to the New Year, because I think it important that their Birthday be celebrated like everyone else's. But in this case I made an exception.
This card is from the JGW New Years Celebration kit and I saw two meanings in the sentiment - One for toasting in the New Year and one for toasting in somebody's new year.....a Happy Birthday.
I made the card in Black and White AC Cardstock along with gold pearl paper, gold and silver AC POW glitter paper and gold and silver adhesive foil from Silhouette. Then I simply added some small bubble gems from Queen & Co. and Voila!
I gave my friend this card along with a bottle of bubbly Asti Spumante so she has something to toast in the New Year and her new year.
Thanks for joining me today - please come back tomorrow where I'll show you some of my New Years Eve decorations I just made.
