HC/Special Pup

Hello everyone and Happy Wednesday to all! Today im sharing a couple of cards made with Heartfelt Creations Stamps :)

 Since the holidays have been keeping us all busy, I really havent crafted much, but today that is all changing :) Im back in my craftroom  :) I do hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!!
So for my 1st card I used Special Pup from Heartfelt Creations
Colored with Copics(E25, E31,E55, E57,R46,R59) I stamped this sweet puppy in memento black ink and then did all my outlines with copic original markers. I then colored in with E31 and E55. I cut the puppy out and popped him off of my card with foam squares. Ive added sewing,flowers,pearls and ribbon to complete my card.
Next up is Bear-y Fun!
Really Reasonable Ribbon (metallic band Silver and White)

I stamped my Bear-y Fun image in memento black ink and colored with copics(black and RV02, and E31). I also used Gala Glitz Pink for the scarf. I lastly added ribbon for my small bows and 2 roses! This was super easy and fast card to make! Took under 25 minutes :)

Bentley's Journey by Breanna for St.Judes

My daughter Breanna volunteered to write a children's storybook and donate it to St. Judes Childrens Hospital.
There were a few students in her English class that are also doing storybooks as well! Breanna did an AWESOME job on her story!

She wrote about a young boy who wanted his letter to get to Santa and he had 2 days til Christmas so he decided to do this long journey with his dog Baxter to the North Pole

A DARLING story that my daughter wrote all on her own, and she did an AWESOME job on it!! Well Bentley and his dog Baxter make it to the north pole and they get to meet Santa, and of course Santa grants his wish for a new puppy for Baxter!!!
Awesome Job Breanna! I'm sooo proud of you! Love you sweetie!

















I helped Breanna do the cover and I did the bows for her. We used Really Reasonable Ribbon in Diamond Satin Red.. The image on the front is from Alota Rubber Stamps. We used a border punch from Martha Stewart for the border. All lettering is stickers!
challenges:
Stamp with Fun/christmas

Really Reasonable Ribbon December Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and Welcome to RRR December Blog Hop!! Be sure to grab your favorite drink and hop along to all my DT Sisters blogs today to see some wonderful projects :)
12 Drawer Trinket Box
The Really Reasonable Ribbon Blog Hop starts at the RRR Blog HERE!
If you get lost along the way here is the complete lineup for todays hop!
Cheryl (Me)
I wanted to try making a 12 drawer Trinket box and it worked!! I did have to change up the measurements and will share them after the holidays. Right now I have alot going on :)

For my Box I used All Really Reasonable Ribbon and made the Rose Drawer pulls(they are handmade roses)
I also used the Brown leaves around the flowers. and ribbon for my bow. All these can be found in Decembers Ribbon Club Kit! LOVE this kit!!! And you will too!!
Supplies Used on my Box:
Really Reasonable Ribbon Dec Club Assortment(Brow ruffle,Brown satin,Brown leaves) I also used Scalloped trim green 
DCWV Mariposa pack/PTI dp and yellow cardstock
Heartfelt Creations Daisy Patch dicut and Love is sentiment
Gala Glitz in Brown
Flourishes in brown, butterfly,brads,and sewing
Challenges ive entered my box into are:
Craft Your Days Away/Diecuts
Crafty Emma Challenge/Anything but a christmas card(My box)
Alphabet Challenge/G is for Glitter(my gala Glitz glitter in the centers of the flowers)
Mami Doodles/anything Goes
Cute Card Thursday/Flowers
Creative Card Crew/anything Goes

On my box I used satin brown ribbon to make my ribbon roses(for drawer pulls) and then used the scalloped trim in green for around the roses for the look of leaves. On my diecut flowers by the sentiment I used brown leaves they come in this months club assortment found HERE! There are a total of 12 drawers on this box. 3 on each side, and they all have handmade roses on them for the look of drawer pulls. I cut out the tops of the drawers with a circle punch, and that is how I open them :)

For the top of my box I wanted it to have a calendar. I think it gives a little added extra for the trinket box. The calendar can be changed out yearly. I used foam dots to the calendar so it can be replace year after year. You could use velcro, but I went the easy way ...lol
I hope you enjoyed todays post, I love making these boxes, and have another idea in store for a Trinket box :) Cant wait to share :)
Your next stop on the Hop is True's Blog! Have fun!!
Hugs,
Cheryl

Heartfelt Creations

2 cards for todays post!
Hello everyone, todays post is for Heartfelt Creations. I have another Easel Calendar Card to share and an Ornament card. To see all other cards from me and my DT sisters visit us HERE!
For my Calendar Card I used
Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon
I first stamped 4 smallest roses on orange design paper, and 1 on red dp. Next I ran them through the diecut machine with matching dies. I stamped 2 larger ones on red design paper, and 1 larger one on orange design paper, and ran them through as well. Now I added dries clear glue to the edges and added gala glitz in brown and set aside to dry.


for my base card I cut a 6 x 12 piece and folded in half, then took the top flap and folded in down in half. Now I cut a 6 x 6 for the card front, and glued it to the bottom part of the fold.

My next layer is 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 then 5 x5. for the panels I just cut them and didnt measure, then were smaller than the 5 x5 so they would fit. I added sewing and lace to the 2.
lastly I added all the flowers,ribbon, and cross to complete my easel calendar.
Calendar can be found here at SCS
