My Sheri Crafts #153



Easter is just right around the corner and THAT is exactly what this next challenge at My Sheri Crafts is all about!  Design Team Sister, Sue, asked us to make a card to celebrate Easter that would feature a cross, bunnies, or eggs


I found this adorable bunny cut in Cricut Design Space and knew I just had to use that to make a shaped card.  The eggs are also from Cricut Design Space and I used Stickles to decorate them.  The leaves are from a Sizzix die cut.  The various flowers are from different Fiskars punch except for the large lilac and large pink colored ones. 

 
Here you see how it opens up.  I welded two of the bunny's base cuts right at the ears and used the second base layer to line the inside.  Another different flower... can never have enough of those and I definitely didn't want to use any flowers of the same kind.  "Happy Easter" is a stamp and I colored over the black ink with a pink glitter pen... made it look a bit sloppy though.  Oh well!

I'm back!  It's been 10 long challenges ago since I've updated my blog and I needed a moment to remember how to blog... hee hee.  Ok, all kidding aside, it's great to be back to the Design Team from my long break.  

This week's theme over at  My Sheri Crafts is all about St. Patrick's Day.  Design Team Sister, Glenda, has asked us to create a project that would include a pot of gold, a four leaf clover, or a leprechaun.   Since I haven't really crafted in a long time, I went with a simple project.




Since I don't celebrate St. Patrick's Day, I don't have any decor at home for this holiday.  I bought a black ceramic pot at the dollar store that reminded me of a pot of gold.  I decorated it with a strip of St. Patrick's Day themed papers from Recollections and layered it with kelly green gro-grain ribbon.  Then with my new Cricut Explore (yes, I finally got one), I cut the St. Patrick's Day label and the four leaf clovers.  I used emerald glitter to cover the cuts.  The fanned flower was created using a Fiskar border punch.  I also embellished with some three leaf clover buttons I got from Michael's. 



  
I stuck these cuts to an existing pot of plant I had in the living room and used the gold coins I got from the dollar store.  The planter is currently displayed now in my living room so guests can see it as they come in the house.  I actually like the idea of decorating a planter for every holiday to display in my living room

Get ready to celebrate BIRTHDAYS at My Sheri CraftsIt was my turn to pick the theme this time and since the month of September holds so many birthdays among people in my life... I figured it was the right theme to pick




I designed this card to look like a birthday present since most of the time... the card IS THE PRESENT!  

I used double-sided paper so that the top part of the present (which represents the box cover) would match the bottom part.  The bottom part is basically a pocket where the personalized note can slip in.  The border punch trimming is a Martha Stewart punch and instead of a giant bow, $1 stamp inside which I colored with gel markers, and I used silk flowers to finish it up

It's time for another challenge over at My Sheri Crafts.  Design Team Sister, Sarah, had asked us to create any project with a music theme but especially focusing on the piano.  I found a clipart image online of a baby grand folder and went with it.   I altered the image on Adobe Photoshop so I can cut it in multiple different pieces.  Here is what I came up with...




I used a double sided paper for the inside.  The black keys are popped up to add dimension and I used a flourish bird die cut from Spellbinders to use as my leaves for the metal red roses I've had in my stash.  

Now, to figure out who to give this to...

Angels


Angels... the new challenge over at My Sheri Crafts!  Design Team Sister, Peachy, had asked us to celebrate "Be an Angel" Day on August 22nd, by creating any angel project

Have you ever seen a craft project and thought they are the most adorable things ever?  Then you think to yourself... "I can make that!"




Well that's exactly what I did with these angle ornaments.  I've seen so many of them online and decided to attempt and make them myself



This white one was my first attempt.  I used plain white cardstock and brushed it with white perfect pearls.  The trimmings were from a stash I received from Design Team Sister, Charlotte.  The wings are Cheery Lynn die cut of a butterfly.  The head is a bell you often see in crafts during Christmas time and it's perfect for hanging up the ornaments.  The halo is made from a glittery piece of pipe cleaner



My second attempt is a smaller version and a more perfect size ornament.  I also decided that angels don't always have to wear white, do they?  So, into my stash of scrap papers I go!  The trimmings are also from Charlotte... thank you Charlotte!

Well, what do you think?
