My Sheri Crafts #182



This week at My Sheri Crafts, DT sister, Sandy, had asked us to create a project with lots of bling or pearls.  I chose to go with pearls in particular.  I decided to make a card with a kimono and Japanese flowers.   The Japanese characters are "Happy Birthday" in Kanji.  I plan to give this to my youngest daughter.  She is currently  infatuated with anything Japanese.  You can't tell from the picture but the kimono is popped up for more dimension




  • Kanji characters are printed on photo paper
  • Papers are DCWV
  • Kimono and the white flowers are from Cricut cartridge: Pagoda
  • Pink blossoms are from Cricut cartridge: Pretty Packages
  • Flourish are Spellbinders

Thanks for looking!

Mickey Ears

Mickey Ears


As promised... I am sharing my first two Mickey ears that I had made! 
This past February, I participated in runDisney's Princess half marathon weekend and so, of course, I had to make a Princess themed ears to walk around Disney World and the running expo.  I just used glitter foam to make the crown and hot glued it on the band.  I covered the base of the crown with some poof to hide the glue.  Not too shabby for the first Mickey ears I have ever made, I think

 

Here is the back side of the crown.  I took a sparkly unicorn button to cover up the staples that connected the seam of the foam crown.  The tulle inside the crown is just to cover up the hollowness


My second Mickey ears... Star Wars Dark Side theme  


This was made for the Dark Side Half Marathon weekend.  I used iron-on vinyl for the Imperial logo as well as Darth Vader.  Both images I picked up online somewhere then I cut it using my Cricut.  The Tie Fighter is a metal die cast I bought from GameStop.  It's a bit on the heavy side.  I used tulle for clouds... real purpose... to cover the hot glue



These are so fun to make!  I will be making more since I'm already signed up for three more runDisney races.  I can't wait to share those with you as well

The directions on how I made the base of the head band and ears are on this post: Nothing Flat!

Check out the newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts.  It's all about 3D!  Nothing flat, according to DT sister, Sarah.  So, I'm taking this opportunity to showcase my newest addiction... making my own Mickey ears.  That's right!  I started making my own Mickey ears in January 2016.  I participate in a lot of runDisney events and they always have a theme.  As I write this blog, I'm actually on a plane to Disneyland to run the Tinkerbell 10K / half marathon challenge this weekend.  This is my third Mickey ears (I will share the first two I made when I get back home).


 

I started off with one of those headbands you get at JoAnn's for $1 each and remove the fabric covering (you end up with a thin plastic headband ready to be covered). I take two balsa wood circle shapes from the wood aisle and clip a little portion of each so it can sit flat on the head band. All 3 pieces are then covered with felt. I just use black felt because I actually like it to be black ears. Once you get the black band/ear base... it's time to decorate!


I got the Tinkerbell cake topper from our local grocery store bakery. I took a couple of 2" silk flowers and layered them for her to sit on. The flourish and small paper butterfly in the back are Cheery Lyn die cuts. The small leaves are Sizzix die cuts. The flowers are all a mixture of silk, plastic, and rolled paper die cuts. The metal butterflies were part of some old embellishment pack I got from Michael's. I also brushed all the flowers with glitter glue to add more sparkles!

My Sheri Crafts #180


After a SUPER long break... I'm back!  What a great time to be back too just in time for a fun new theme over at My Sheri Crafts.  It's all about making shaped cards.  No traditional square or rectangular cards.


* Folded over

My project is a dog card.  I found a clipart image online.  I created different layers on Adobe Photoshop for the different colors to turn it into an SVG file.  Then I cut each layer with my Cricut.


* Standing up (you can see a little of the inside of the card) 

I wasn't quite sure of what occasion to use this card for just yet so I left it without any sentiments.  I added the rainbow ribbon and used a bone button I've had in my stash for a topper.  I can always remove the ribbon if I decide to give it to a boy.


 Card size: 5.5" x 7.25"

Check out the newest theme over at My Sheri Crafts. It's all about reaching out to those you haven't seen in ages.  We've all made these types of cards... thinking of you... miss you... hello...
Well it's time to showcase those cards or project!
 

I have been hoarding a lot of papers and I decided to use up some from Close to My Heart.  This is from the Wings collection.  The stamp is from Michael's Crafts.  Flourish are Spellbinders.  The rolled up flowers are Sizzix.  I think I used up too much inking... the flowers look black!  LoL!  They are actually very dark burgundy
