My Sheri Crafts #160


Fourth of July is next weekend so Design Team Sister, Glenda, had asked us to create any card or project that is patriotic .  Check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


I wanted to make something a bit on the rustic side so this is what I came up with.  These are scrap pieces of papers from my daughter's Civic class project so I thought they were perfect to use since they're patriotic.  The three layers of stars are cuts from Cricut and I popped them up at each layer for some dimension.  All pieces were inked at the edges... I should have distress the printed paper, but oh well.  The flag heart buttons I've had for over two years and I finally got a chance to use them!  The colors were so bright on them so I also distressed them for a more rustic look.


Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"

Something Masculine


Father's Day is coming up soon so Design Team Sister, Sandy, had asked us to create something masculine.  Whether it's a card or a crafty project you'd like to make, come check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


I don't usually make masculine cards... I have a lot more fun adding flowers to things.  However, it's a necessary thing we must do from time to time.  This one is for my hubby for Father's Day.  He does love his exercise!  The triathlon symbols were downloaded from the internet and I made them  into SVG files to cut with my Cricut.  The border punch is a Fiskar... reminds me of waves.  I fell in love with the  $1 stamp I got from Michael's Craft.  I figured it would be a perfect statement for this high impact exercise card... since I prefer the couch.

Card size: 5.5" x 4.25"

My Sheri Crafts #158



Summer is approaching fast and the heat is becoming unbearable... especially if you live in South Florida.  What better way to cool off but to go to the beach... or at least drench yourself with water.  Our very own Sheri had asked us to create any project that features the water.  So come check out the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


Instead of a card that features the beach, I decided to decorate a simple hand soap bottle.  I used Goo Begone to remove all the branding.  The flourish is from Sizzix and I used a dark brown vinyl because it's water proof.  I hot glued the shells and silk flowers to represent the beach theme.  This is the color theme of my powder room and this project is LONG overdue.


Some of you may remember, this project from My Sheri Crafts #115 "Let's Take a Trip" where I made a wreath.  This wreath is hanging in the same powder room and I just now made a matching accessory for it.  It's been lonely for a long time.  You can check out the details of the wreath here.

You got it!  Graduation Day is fast approaching with the end of the school year.  Design Team Sister, Glenda, asked us to create a graduation card or any project that is school related for the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts


Here is my take on this challenge.   The graduation cap is a cut I've had as an SVG file and I can't remember where it came from.  I popped up the top part of the cap for some dimension.  I made the tassel from DMC cross-stitching floss.  The colors are royal blue and yellow, the middle school colors where my daughter is currently attending... and leaving as she is in 8th grade. "Congratulations Graduate" is a stamp that came from a set of rubber occasion stamps.  The diploma is just 2" of rolled up printer paper and the ribbon is also a DMC floss.  The printed paper is from DCWV and I used a Fiskar photo corner punch to hold it in place.


Here is a second picture with a matching envelope.  The color is a bit off on this one

My right arm is still in a cast but that's still not going to stop me from crafting!  Design Team Sister, Marge, asked us to create a birthday card with a matching envelope for the newest challenge over at My Sheri Crafts



Since I still have very limited use of my right arm (my writing hand at that)... I have to keep with simple projects.  I don't think you can get simpler than this card.  The paper is from DCWV, flowers from Michael's, trimming from Charlotte (previous Design Team Sister), and the "Happy Birthday" is a $1 stamp from Michael's.


*Card size 5.5" x 4.25"
