My Sheri Crafts #155


I broke my arm!  That's right, but that's not going to stop me from participating in the newest theme challenge over at My Sheri CraftsSince Mother's Day is nearby, Design Team Sister, Sandy, asked us to make "something girly." I have limited use of my right arm right now so I had to make something simple. 




These are gift card covers with a matching purse to hide them in instead of an envelope.  Really, I just wanted to use up scrap papers which I now have a drawer full.  The bag cut is from Cricut cartridge: Bags, Tags, Boxes & More.  The trimmings for the first 3 purses were given to me by former Design Team Sister, Charlotte.  The last one is from Michael's Crafts.  The rest of the embellishments are from my stash and yes... I have to use those up too!


*The cards are 3.5" x 2"
*The purse are 4" x 4.5" x 1.75"

According to Design Team Sister, Sarah... April is National Humor Month.  Well why not?  April does have April's Fool Day and Tax Day... hee hee!  She had asked us to create a humorous card for the latest My Sheri Crafts challenge


My friend is turning 40 this month so why not make an "over the hill" card?  Well not quite.  I did use the traditional colors from the "over the hill" theme of black, silver (or gray), and white.  I made the card shaped into a "40" and made a cut of the word "forty" ... as if it wasn't obvious enough.  Both cuts were created with *SCAL


So here you have the twist... I printed the label "Happy 29th Birthday!!! (again)" on my computer and used a Spellbinder die cut to frame it.  The green flourish is a Cheery Lynn die cut and the roses are Quilted Creations die cuts


I decided to make another card... a simple one.  I found the image of metallic colorful shot glasses from the internet and printed it.  The words were printed from the computer and then I slapped them all together in different layers

*Both cards fit an A2 envelope
*SCAL: Sure Cuts A Lot

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
