Smitten Mittens in Pastels

Smitten Mittens Stampin' Up!

 Hello Friends,

One of the many cool things about making handmade cards is that you can make them say anything you want.  What would you have this Smitten Mittens card be?

Is it a baby card or maybe a card to send to your grandchild or is it an Anniversary Card or Wedding Card or simply an I Love You Card?  What's your vote?

 

Smitten Mittens Stampin' Up!

 Besides the Smitten Mittens Stamp set and Many Mittens Dies, I used 3 additional die sets-Laying Squares, Stitched Shapes and Sweet & Sassy dies.  To make the scalloped frame, I simply used scallop square die for the outer part of the frame and another smaller square die to cut out the center.  The ruffled background was made with the Ruffled Dynamic Textures Impressions Embossing Folder.

 

This week Karen is our Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge Hostess and she chose Soft Sky, Powder Pink, Wild Wasbi and So Saffron.  And for dessert add scallops.  Hop on over and play along at Splitcoast Stampers Color Challenge.

You Move Me No Bones About It

Cards That Move
 Hello Friends,

Today, I'm going to share with you how to make 2 handmade cards in which the stamped image appears to be moving.  The first card was made with the You Move Me Stamp Set and coordinating Move Me Dies.  In the Stampin' Video below, you'll see how they work together to make an image appear to move.  

 

 Did you see the butterfly move?  Sweet, right?

 My soon to be 6 year old grandson has a birthday coming up and he loves dinosaurs, so I thought that I would give the No Bones About It (Dinosaur stamp set) a whirl with the Move Me Dies. 

 

Dinosaur Card That Moves
 The results aren't quite as impressive as it was with the You Move Me stamp set, but to a 6 year old, one dinosaur chasing another is fun.  I tucked the pull out into a Mini Treat bag that I made with the Mini Treat Bag Dies and Naturally Eclectic Designer Series Paper.

 

Dinosaur Card that Moves

 And when the Birthday Boy pulls on the tab, he'll discover his two dinosaurs with a Birthday Message!

Craft Room Organization-Compartment Shadow Boxes

Craft Room Organization

 Hello Friends,

Last Friday, I shared with you 3 Steps to Getting Started Organizing your Craft Space and Ribbon Organization.  This week, let's talk about using Compartment Shadow Boxes in your Craft Room.

Compartment Shadow Boxes are a great way to showcase and organize small things is your Craft Room.  They can be hung on the wall  or they can be free standing or...

Organize Your Craft Room

 they can be used lying flat in drawers to organize lots of little things.  This is oh so much better than rummaging through a drawer of this and that to find one small thing.  This one houses Washi Tape, Clear Blocks for stamping,  Address Stamps, Business Cards, adhesive removers, enamel dots, paper doilies and more.  Imagine a drawer that stores oodles of things and... each little thing has its own spot.

You can buy compartment Shadow Boxes both used and new.  Look for them in antique stores, online or in your local craft  and department stores.  

Let me know in the comments, if you found this Craft Room Organization tip helpful.  Be sure to stop back next week for daily paper craft ideas, a Color Challenge (Tuesday)  and more.  If you are looking for Handmade Christmas Cards and Paper Crafts ideas, be sure to stop by on Wednesday for my 3rd installment of the 12 Weeks of Christmas. 

 

Have a fabulous weekend,
