CardzTV 3D Anything Goes Blog Hop

I'm so glad you could join us today for our CardzTV 3D Designer's Anything Goes Blog Hop! If you have come from Mary's blog, you are headed in the right direction.  If you just happened to stop at my blog and would like to hop along the entire hop then please go back to Mary's blog to begin the hop.  Now, grab your favorite beverage, sit back and relax, and get ready for some fun, inspiration,and the chance to win some blog candy too!


Here's what I made for today's blog hop. The file is from SVG cuts.  I assembled the light house according to the instruction from their website.

The red top of the lighthouse has space to put one of the battery operated tealight candles so the lighthouse lights up.  The top and bottom part of the light house also come apart to allow for additional tealight  candles or for a place to put some goodies.  I added a sentiment from the Just Saying CardzTV Stamp Set.

What's a blog hop without some blog candy!   I am giving away this Best of Pixar Cricut Cartridge.


It's easy to win this cartridge.  Simply become a follower using Bloglovin.  Leave me a comment on this post with a way to reach you if you win.  I will use random.org to select a winner on Monday, May 30th.  But that is not all.  Mary will be giving 3 sets of Cardz TV Stamps for her blog candy, so if you’re a follower of Cardz TV, just leave a comment on her blog!

Friends are Special

Hi everyone, Deanna here with another project for the Dies R Us Inspirational Blog.  Here is what I have for you today.
For the card base I started with white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" base.  I added a blue mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  I then added a strip of green cut at 4" X 1 1/2" and added that to the bottom of the card.  Next I die cut the Summerville Landscape die from Memory Box out of white card stock.  I then colored the cut with some copic markers.

Next I cut the tree using Dee's Distinctively Dies and the Tree Base 1 die. Next I cut the tree greenery also from Dee's Distinctively Dies using the Tree Toppers Die. If you haven't checked out the Dee's Distinctively Dies yet, you should.  They offer a wide variety of dies.

Once I assembled my tree I added it to my card front along with the landscape die cut.  To some splashes of color to the card I used the Poppystamps die Butterfly Sprinkles to cut out several butterflies in different colors and added them randomly to the card front.

Finally, to finish the card, I added some Wink of Stella Clear pen to the flowers and the butterflies and my sentiment.

I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  Be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to do some shopping while you are here. And don't forget to like us on our Facebook page.  You don't want to miss out on anything that is happening at Dies R Us.

2 Creative Chicks Challenge Showcase #10

It is time once again for a new challenge over at 2 Creative Chicks.  This is what I came up with.

My card base is white card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. Next I added a black mat, then my patterned paper mat each cut 1/8" small than the previous layer.

Using some watercolor paper  and some water colors I created the ocean and sand for my little scallop to sit on.  I also used some pan water colors to paint the scallop.  The stamps for this image are from Lawn Fawn and so is the die for the shell fish.  I just thought this was such a cute card.

Now it is your turn. Create a project and link it up to 2 Creative Chicks.

Farm Fresh-A Sunny Day Crafting Challenge


It's time for another challenge over at Sunny Day Crafting.  Here is what I came up with.


I came up with this card based on the inspirational photo for this challenge.

Now I am sure you are wondering how I came up with a pig and a chicken when the picture is of a barn.  That is the fun part of these challenges.  You can interpret the picture any way you want.  You might decide to use the colors from the picture, or the picture may represent something to you or you may choose to go with the theme of the picture.  That is what I chose to do.

When I looked at the photo it reminded me of my grandparents farm when I was younger. I loved going over there.  So I decided to recreate something that reminded me of my grandparents farm as this picture said, barn and farm to me.  Now on to the card details.

My card base is a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card cut from Kraft card stock.  Next I added a black mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".  My patterned paper is from my stash and was cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8".

The pig and chicken are from the Country Life cartridge and were cut at 3 3/4".  Once I cut all the layers I adhered them together and attached them to the front of the card with some foam tape.  The sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and I used a small tag punch to punch out the sentiment.  I then adhered it to my card front.

Now it is your turn. Make a project that this photo speaks to you.

Little things make a happy life.


Hi everyone, Deanna here, back with another project to help inspire you to use your dies from Dies R Us.

To make my card, I started with some watercolor card stock cut to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2".  Using Tumbled Glass, Mowed Lawn, and Peacock Feathers and my blending tool, I created a background for my card.

Next I die cut my card using the Memory Box Floral Breeze die. There are several dies like this Floral Breeze die so experiment a little. Next I die cut my butterfly from the Poppystamps Daphne Butterfly Die. I added some clear Wink of Stella to my butterfly die to give it some glimmer. Again, there are lots of butterfly dies available from Dies R Us that you can use. So go shop and pick up your favorites.

I cut and folded a piece of lavender card stock to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2"card base.  I attached my card front to the lavender card stock.  Again I added some Wink of Stella to the cut out from the Floral Breeze die and attached some sequins to my card front as well.

I hope you will join in on the fun over at the Dies R Us Challenge blog.  Be sure to pop over to the Dies R Us store to do some shopping while you are here. And don't forget to like us on our Facebook page.  You don't want to miss out on anything that is happening at Dies R Us.

Hang in There!

Hey everyone, it's Deanna back with another inspirational post for you all using the wonderful dies from Dies R Us.  Here is what I have for you today.

My card base is light blue card stock cut and folded to make a 4 1/4 X 5 1/2" card base.  Next I die cut the Stitched Lattice Background Die from Memory Box out of some light yellow card stock.  I attached the background to my card base.

I then cut out the Arin Bird and the Arin Bird Background dies also from Memory Box.  After adhering the two layers of the bird together, I adhered my bird to the lattice background using some foam tape. All my die cutting is done using my Sizzix Big Shot machine.

To finish the card, I randomly added some sequence to my card. I stamped and embossed my sentiment with WOW embossing powder and attached the sentiment to the card directly with some adhesive.

Margarita Time

It is time for another fun challenge over at a Sunny Day Crafting.  Here is what I came up with.

My project was based on this photo inspiration.

Now does that not remind you of all those wonderful Margaritas?

My card base is lime green and is cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base.  I added an orange mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and the patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4".

Now it is your turn.  Make a project using the colorful lime for inspiration. You can go many directions with this one.  Rainbows, select one color and highlight it on your project or take the lime as inspiration.  I look forward to seeing your projects.
