CardzTV. Today's challenge is to make a 3D project for St. Patrick's Day. Nothing says St. Paddy's Day like a Leprechaun's hat, so that is what I made. I found the cut in the Silhouette store. I stamped me sentiment using the St. Patrick's Day stamp set, on a hand cut tag and added a small white button to the center of the shamrock.
Now it is your turn. Show us your 3D items and you might win a set of CardzTV Stamps!

Glue n Seal. Starting from the center of your card stock you start applying your triangle pieces being sure to let the hang off of each end of the paper a bit and be sure you are covering the entire piece of card stock. You may have to adjust your placement to be sure the corners are covered. One done allow it to dry and the cut all the overhanging excess paper off. Next I adhered the entire panel to another piece of white card stock cut at 3 3/4" 5". And, Joy of Joy's I got to try out my new mini perfect layers when I cut my black mat. I used the 1/8" side and it was fast an easy to get a perfectly centered mat behind my image layer. I also added a 1/2" x 5" piece of black card stock to the front of my card. I then cut a butterfly out at 2 3/4" using my Cameo and some green and black card stock. Before adhering the layers together I decided I wanted to glitter my butterfly. I pressed the black layer of the butterfly into my Versamark embossing pad and sprinkled it with some Ranger Sticky Embossing powder. I think everyone should have some of this embossing powder it is awesome, because, when you heat it up it goes from the white powder to shiny and becomes sticky. I then sprinkled the layer with some of the Black Soot Distress Glitter and then briefly heated the whole thing again to make sure the glitter was permanently adhered. It was quick and easy with the Sticky Embossing powder and I don't have glitter falling off my project. If you would like some of the Sticky Embossing powder shoot Kim and email and she can special order for you. It is so worth it. The Distress Glitters are also a special order item and they are all gorgeous. Some of the prettiest glitter I've seen. Once I had the butterfly done, I adhere the two layers together with some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive. I adhered the butterfly to my card front with some of the Clear 3D foam pads. I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and added some bling to finish it off. Thanks for visiting. I hope you will get in touch with Kim to get your Sticky Embossing powdered ordered. You won't regret it!

I had a chance to make a fun birthday card this weekend.
My card base is white card stock cut and scored to a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a blue mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and a blue polka dot mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". Then another blue mat cut at 3 7/8" X 5 1/8" and then the striped mat cut at 3 3/4" X 5". My lady bird is cut at 3 1/2" from the Create a Critter 2 cartridge. I embossed the wing with a sizzix dots embossing folder and used some glossy accents to enhance the birds eye. I also added a small dimensional flower sticker to the bird's ribbon on her hat. My lady bird is attached to my card with foam tape.

My cousin's husband was killed on Monday in a senseless act of violence by a disgruntled employee. He worked for Benjamin Moore Paint in Vancouver, WA. I so feel for her. This is the card I made for her.
My card is white card stock cut and scored to 4 1/4" X 5 1/2". I added a dark purple mat cut at 4 1/8" X 5 3/8" and then my patterned paper mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4". My patterned paper is from the Graphic 45 Secret Garden paper pad.
I used Elegant Edges to cut a mat at 4". The shadow was cut out of light lavendar and the shadow was cut out of dark purple. I added some Fran tage to the dark purple mat. My butterfly was cut from a new Cottage Cutz die using my eBosser. I sprayed the die cut with some pink glitter dust.
I adhered it to my die cut to my mat with some Glossy Accents. I then adhered the mats to my card base with some foam tape. My sentiment is stamped using a stamp from the WOW! embossing powder company and was stamped in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. To finish I add some rhinestones to help balance out the card.
I purchased my Fran-Tage and Cottage Cutz dies from Cutters Creek.
It is time for a new challenge over at CardzTV. Today's challenge is to make a 3d Project for Valentine's Day. The mailbox is a file from the Silhouette Store and is a Lori Whitlock image.
I cut the mailbox at the default size and used some Zip-Dry adhesive to put it together. It was very simple to put together. For the front of the mailbox(the lid) I cut a strip of the pink stripe and adhered it around the outer edge.
I used the Snail Mail CardzTV Stamp Set for my sentiments. I stamps the SWAK in Memento Tuxedo black ink on the side of the mailbox to resemble the place you would put your name or address on your own mailbox. For the front of the lid I stamped the postage stamp image with the black ink and stamp inside of it with the Priority Mail stamp in Memento Love Letter ink. I then cut the stamp out and added some small pink rhinestones to each of the corners of the stamp and attached it to the front with some foam tape.
I put some Hershey's kisses on the inside of the mailbox for a special delivery. I hope you will join in the fun and play along with us with this challenge.

card stock cut and scored to make a 5" X 7" card base. I cut a red mat at 4 3/4" X 6 3/4" and the patterned paper mat at 4 1/2" X 6 1/2". All the layers were adhered together using my ATG gun. My image was cut using my Cricut Expression and the Love Struck cartridge at 4". After adhering the two layers together with some Scotch Quick Dry Adhesive I sprayed it with some Iridescent Glitter Dust. I adhered it to my card front with some foam squares. My sentiment was stamped with Memento Love Letter ink (my new favorite red). This can be ordered for you, just ask. Finally I added some red pearls to the sentiment mat. Thanks for stopping by.
