Garden Fresh … TSTR #164!

Photo Inspiration #164Hello crafty friends!  I'm popping in today to share a cute little something I recently created for The Shabby Tea Room #164 - 'Beautiful Spring'!

Debbie TSTR #164 (2)I used the window sill shaped card file from The Cutting Cafe to make today's card!  How much fun I had creating this spring time little window scene!  I made curtains from patterned paper and then added a window box filled with blooms - complete with a little garden stake stamped using the Paper Sweeties Stand Add-on 1 stamp set!

Debbie TSTR #164 (1)Fun, right??  I love floral curtains, polka dots and window boxes filled with pretty blooms!!

Bloom Where You Are Planted … Fusion #4!

Challenge #4Hello crafty friends!  I have some fun news to share with you all today ... I was asked by my friend, Lesley Croghan, to guest design with the ladies over at Fusion for the #4 challenge!  For my assignment, I was asked to use the sketch and photo inspiration to come up with a {fusion} card -- too fun!

papersweeties-apr26(2)I used the Make Today Beautiful stamp set from Paper Sweeties to create the background patterned paper stamping two flower images in four different colors!  Next, I adhered a sentiment stamped using the same set and adhered it to a piece of pumpkin cardstock for a pop of color!  Last I adhered a pretty blue paper bloom to pick up the blooms in the stamped background piece and finished it off with a couple of green glittered leaves!

papersweeties-apr26(1)Please pop on over to the Fusion blog to check out the lovely creations by the design team girls, and then I hope you'll give this neat challenge a try ... will you use just the sketch -- just the photo -- or combine both to create FUSION??!!??

Hugs!

I {heart} U … TKJ #118!

Debbie TKJ #118 (3)For today's 'Recycle or Reuse' challenge #118 at The Kraft Journal, I used Spanish moss picked from trees while walking on a golf course in Florida and a stick from my backyard as my recycle/reuse items!  I created a white cardstock base onto which I layered black cardstock.  I added a strip of Music Note Tape on the bottom and tied a couple of lengths of Red Baker's Twine around the card.

Debbie TKJ #118 (2)

I added a die cut bird cage and then decorated it with the moss nest, twig perch and a die cut bird.  To make the bird, I adhered some Red Polka Dot Tape onto cardstock and then cut the bird shape.  A pretty paper bloom was added along with two Garnet Stick Pins for balance.

Debbie TKJ #118 (1)

Last, I added an I {heart} U sentiment stamped using the Fancy Monograms stamp set from Paper Sweeties!

Please be sure to visit The Kraft Journal challenge blog to check out the amazing inspiration projects created by the rest of the teamies!  We hope you'll play along with our 'Recycle or Reuse' challenge for your chance to win some goodness from The Kraft Outlet Shop!

Spring Is Here … TSTR #162!

Hello crafty peeps!  I'm popping in today to share my project for The Shabby Tea Room #162 - 'Pretty Shabby' inspired by this photo:

I created today using the Creations by AR template - Birdhouse Topiary!

Debbie TSTR #162 (1)This has got to be my all-time favorite template ever ... I adore birdhouses and sweet little birdies!  This was so much fun to create!

Debbie TSTR #162 (2)I punched a bird from sheet music paper from an old holiday song book and added her to a nest of recycled Spanish moss that I collected while walking a golf course with my hubby and sons, and then filled it with three little 'eggs'.  I adhered a sheet music piece of flair and created a shabby roof by distressing and inking the edges of the card stock.

Debbie TSTR #162 (3)I stamped this sweet tag using the Paper Sweeties Spring Is Here and Beautiful stamp sets!

Debbie TSTR #162 (4)I just love how this sweet project turned out!  What do you think?

Please be sure to pop on over to The Shabby Tea Room to check out the inspiration projects from the rest of the teamies ... and then I hope you'll give our 'Pretty Shabby' challenge a try for your chance to win an awesome prize package from Creations by AR!
