Crafty Gals Corner Challenge - You're the Man!

You're the Man!

For this challenge, we are privileged to be sponsored by:
(in alphabetical order)



Bugaboo Digital Stamps
Prize ~ $12 gift certificate




Prize ~ $5 Gift Certificate



Prize ~ 2 Digital Images


For this challenge, we are celebrating the men in our lives! I decided that I would make a Father's Day card so my grandchildren could give their Dad a card. Here is my card:

Bugaboo Stamps

I thought that I'd do something a little different for this card. Anyway, for me it was different. Before I made the card base, I made the tie out of blue cardstock with black underneath. I then cut out my digital and colored her. Once that was done, I placed her onto the tie, and then did my matting for the card base. Some ribbon and buttons added, and it was done! 

This was such a fun card to do! I hope that you will join us for this month's challenge! But most of all, have fun with it, and stay safe!!

Prize ~ $10 Gift Certificate

For my card this month, I used Lilly the Dancing Princess. Isn't she a beauty? I used my Spectrum Noir color markers on her. I also layered her using a layer cut from my Cameo 4. I glittered up her crown to give it more of the "royalty" look to it. 

I hope that this card inspires you to join us! And thank you for stopping by! Until next time!

Blog Hop Featuring Jill Cameron Creations!


Hello, fellow crafters! I'm excited to share with you a blog hop, featuring designs by Jill Cameron Creations!  She has some great cut files, and I'm here today to share with you what I did! Be sure to follow along on the blog hop to give the designers some love, especially during these trying times!

Now let me share with you what I made. I decided with all the awesome files, I'd make 2 cards (for now anyway!). Here they are:

Keep Up the Good Work card & Rainbow Hugs card


Inside of Rainbow Hugs card


Here are the layers I used for the hugs card

Here are the layers I used for the Good Work card

As you can see, I had a lot of fun layers I cut out to make my cards. I also used my Foil Quill pen on my Silhouette Cameo 3 to get all the silver foils you see. For the "thank you", "hugs", and the "good work" sentiments, I used heat foil by using my laminating machine. I had a lot of fun! 

Once they were all cut, it was just a matter of putting the layers all together. And they turned out awesome! Be sure to click her name above to follow the link to her shop. 

Now, here's the lineup of designers!

Crafty Gals Corner - Easter/Spring 2020

Hello, all you wonderful crafters out there! I hope that this finds you happy and in good health!  So today is the beginning of a new challenge over at Crafty Gals Corner Challenge Blog!  And the theme for this challenge is: 
Easter / Spring 

Our awesome sponsors for this challenge are:



Creative Bug on the Loose
Prize ~ 5 digital stamps





Bugaboo Digital Stamps
Prize ~ $12 gift certificate





Digital Delights
Prize ~ $5 gift certificate

Now here is my card. I'm using Bella Easter Egg Bunny. She is such a little cutie!
So I started out with a base card foundation of  8 1/2" x 5 1/2", then folded in half at the center of the 8 1/2" side. I then layered paper from the Celebrate Today paper pack. (via my website at 
https://jeanieellis.closetomyheart.com/.  The double sided paper makes it a great way to coordinate papers without having to search. The next mounting sheet was 4" x 5 1/4", then the top layer 3 3/4" x 5". I added a leftover strip from the paper pack on the left side and then stamped the sentiment from the Happy Easter stamp setLastly, I layered on top the cute image. 

I colored the image using my Real Brush Arteza set. It was my first time using those, so I suggest you practice with these brushes first, as there is a learning curve. But I really like them! I used my ATG tape runner to adhere everything.

I hope that you are inspired by my card, and that you will join in on our challenge! 

Thank you for stopping by! Stay safe!
