Holiday at HIMCR

This week's challenge at Hiding in My Craft Room is any holiday. I made a super quick card with a Sizzix stamp and die set by Stephanie Barnard. I haven't had much time to craft lately but this went together really quickly. It's really basic but turned out pretty cute.


The paper is all Recollections. I used a Zig real brush marker for the feet and beak of the penguin, the rest is just ink. The snowflakes were a gift and I decided to throw a few of those on for a little sparkle.

Quick Fusion card

Hello everybody. I was in need of a few minutes of craft time today so there will be a couple of posts. This is the first of two posts. The only thing I used for this challenge was my paper cutter, a stamp from Unity Stamps, and some sequins. This card is for the Fusion Card Challenge. Here's the challenge.


I stuck mostly to the sketch but incorporated the flower idea with the paper. I think the patterned paper is Basic Grey but don't hold me to that. The yellow is Recollections. 


This was a super quick card but I like how it turned out. Have a great day!

I made this adorable umbrella egg from the Dreaming Tree Daffodilly Spring Bundle. It was pretty easy to put together once it was all cut. The hardest part was picking the papers. (Actually, the hardest part was getting a good picture. The light was weird and I had a tough time.) I used a butterfly from the Tablescapes Sping and Summer Cricut image set that went with it perfectly. I might add a couple more before I give it to somebody.

 Have a great week everyone! We are back to school after spring break which means the end of the year and graduation are quickly approaching.

The paper is Recollections and I believe it is a Cuttlebug embossing folder. The brads and bling are from my stash.

Thank you with Unity

I needed to make a quick thank you card and had this beautiful stamp from Unity that I hadn't used and this is the result. It went together really quickly using some basic rectangles and a Spellbinders scalloped circle die that was just the right size. The patterned paper is from Webster's Pages.


I stamped the image with Versa Fine ink and colored it quickly with Zig real brush markers. I'm adding to the DL Art Thankful Thursday challenge as you needed to use green and I happened to do that with this card.
