Saturday Craft projects

Two crafty projects to share today...



A shout out to the lovely freebies used in this card, thank you Karen for the inked set of balloons, thank you Laurel for the cloud stamps and thank you Etsy Inspired Challenge for the SRM stickers.  Yeah!

This fun balloon card uses this week's Play Date Cafe colors, love the rich blues.  I've also used balloons for the Moxie Fab World "In My Beautiful Balloon" challenge.  And since I was thinking of WMS for the gift bag below I decided to use this week's  Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge sketch.  And one last challenge, twine for this week's Wee Memories "Tangled Up" challenge.  Many thanks to all the DT team who leave comments week after week on all these fun challenges, I really appreciate it.



And next up, a fun little bag.


This gift bag is part the of the Waltzingmouse CASE challenge.  I was inspired by Bonnie's gift bag and since I've been doing a number of the other Moxie Fab World 350 Cards & Gifts, this bag works perfectly for the Gift Wrap Challenge.   I've used the WMS Say It With Style birthday sentiment & Very Vintage Label 1 (thank you Giesle).

Materials: First Card: Mint Motif clouds, Practicing Creativity Look Up Additions balloons, SRM sticker sentiment, Bic markers, Twinery Peapod twine, Versamagic night sky ink, Fiskars scallop rotary cutter


Gift Bag: WMS Say It With Style Sentiment, WMS Very Vintage Label 1, Sizzix Tim Holtz Ornamental Die, Tim Holtz embossing folder, Studio G pink ink, May Arts silk ribbon, pink patterned paper from my stash, recycle brown bag, Versafine black ink
