Action Wobble Wednesday!

Hi there! I am so excited to be the guest designer today for ACTION WOBBLES "Wobble Wednesday Challenge"! I made a fun card for my niece's 4th birthday this past weekend! 

I cut my froggy and the card base with files I bought from the Silhouette store. I couldn't really tell you what the paper is from because I made a challenge to myself-USE MY SCRAPS BEFORE NEW PAPER! So far, so good! The blue shimmer background is from recollections (Michaels brand) though! 

The inside of the card is stamped with a sentiment from Jaded Blossom's " Sweet Birthday Wishes" set.I also added a strip of My Minds Eye pink polka dot washi tape to the side! 

My little banner is from Jaded Blossoms Candy Charms & Banners die set. I inked the edges & stamped the sentiment with Close To My Heart's smokey plum ink. The sentiment came from JB's "Birthday Candies" set. I added 2 little brads from my stash to hold it together. I also used "waterfall" & "purple" stickles on the hat and the present. 

Weeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!! Look at him go! I used my action wobble for a fun dancin' froggy! 

Was a little difficult to get a shot of the under side but you can see the springs there! 

Aiden (my 6 year old) asked me to make his cousin a little box to hold a bracelet he made for her. She LOVES cupcakes so I thought this was only appropriate! I got this file from the silhouette store as well. Again, used up some paper from my scrap stash and added some lime green ric rac ribbon. The tag came from Jaded Blossom's "Treat Tag Die". The cute little girl and the sentiment also came from JB's "sweet birthday wishes" set. I added a fun jewel to her head band! 

Thanks for taking a look today and have fun craftin'!

For my project today, I created a card for one of Neal's employees. His wife just had their 3rd little bundle of joy and all the staff got together to get him a gift card. I saw a similar card on Pinterest and loved how it turned out! I had to create this from scratch and I think it came out pretty good! 

I used tons of rectangles to make my dresser and used pop dots to add a 3d look to my drawers. A few pearl "knobs" completed the dresser! 

I used Jaded Blossom's Flag Dies for my banner, and both sentiments came from "Babies & Weddings". I inked them using Close To My Hearts 'crystal blue' & 'chocolate' inks. 

Jaded Blossoms monthly challenge is to create something with a gift card theme. I decided to enter my card into the challenge! 

Thanks for hopping with us today!

Happy Grandparents Day!

Grandparents Day was one of my favorite "unofficial" holidays when I was little. We always brought my grandma & grandpa to school with us and it was the best! I love to send out cards to all of them still but this year caught up with me! I can't send my grandpa one on time but I was able to make "pop" one (thats Neal's dad....the boys grandpa!)

I used Jaded Blossom's Father's Day stamp set for the cute sentiment stamped with CTMH outdoor denim ink. The bottle of soda pop came from the SIL store and i put a little twine on there as well. 

I used Liquid Glass on the bottle along with some light orange and dark orange stickles. 

Thanks for stopping by!
