Cute Little Dinosaur Card

 Hello Friends,

Before I show you my card, I wanted to tell you that Blogger is getting rid of the FeedBurner feature. This means that if you kindly subscribe to my blog by email-you will no longer receive those emails. Boo! This is set for a couple of months from now. But I looked at the emails and there seems to be only a handful of legit emails. So I am going to have this blog post be the last post emailed out. Thank you for subscribing! You can see all of my crafty makes either here, on my Iliketocutandpaste Facebook and Instagram accounts.

So here is this cute thank you card!

I used an echo park embossing folder.  The sentiment is from Taylored Expressions. And this cute dinosaur is a print and cut from my Silhouette machine and the Silhouette Design Store. Here lately I am loving the option of printing and cutting things out. Shhh don't let my stamps and stickers find out ;)

And who can resist googly eyes?  

Thank you for subscribing to my blog. I hope to see you in other outlets. :) Hugs!

I am submitting this card into the follow challenges:

Orchid Vignette Box

 Hello Friends!

I am so excited to share a cool vignette box that I made for a friend of mine. :)  My friends loves and takes care of orchids-so I had to make sure I incorporated that into this box. It was a thank you from me to her. Sometimes cards just aren't enough ;)

So here is the vignette box:

I made these orchids using a silhouette design store file and wilted violet and wild honey distress oxide inks. The leaves are from a tim holtz funky floral die cut set and I trimmed the leaves to look like this. I did a little paper shaping, also.  I used a botanical rub on on from tim holtz in the background.

This is an adornment metal charm from tim holtz. I made it purple with alcohol ink.  And the dreamer of dreams is another rub on from a different set. 

There's another picture of the orchids because I love how they turned out. They are in a little tim holtz jar (corked vials) and I glued the stem to the side of the jar to keep the orchids from moving around.

The background is a tim holtz wallpaper that I colored with vintage photo and broken china distress oxide. The bird is clay and made from a mod podge mold. I painted it with a finnabair sparks paint-butterfly spells.

Rust! I love to create rust! I used finnabairs 3 paint/paste rust effects. This is over a clip thing that has a whole in it. Originally, it was an orange clip from Making Memories. Then I painted black gesso over it and clipped it to the side. I made the rust happen and used extra jump rings for the time coin and antique gem- both are tim holtz.

Here's a side view.  I sprayed stormy sky distress oxide spray onto the box so it has a blue tint.

Look at that rust!

Another view.  The paper doll is from tim holtz.

This is the 2nd smallest vignette box that Tim sells. I also added antique glass glitter from Melissa Francis along the corner on the left and the bottom.  I feel that I need more glitter in my life and used it here. :)

I am submitting this cool vignette box into the following challenges:

Path of Positivity Challenge: #90 Smile/Laugh This is a thank  you for my friend for helping me. I know she will smile when she sees the orchids. :)

Pretty Yellow Daffodil!

 Hello Friends!

Happy New Month to You! We have a new challenge at the Rainbow Card Challenge. This month we are all about Daffodil. :) Check out this inspiring color board!

So this is what I did for Daffodil:

I used a dylusional stencil and art anthology yellow glitter dimensional paint to create the background. I made the pineapple using my silhouette machine. I used a little rustic wilderness distress oxide on the pinepple leaf. And the sentiment is a free stamp from a purchase from Taylored Expressions. I used mulberry paper behind the pineapple and pop dots. I stamped on the mulberry paper also and added some sweet little flowers from Paper Studio (hobby lobby).

Here is an angled look at the card. This way you can see the dimension and glittery goodness of the background. 

I hope you are inspired to get out all things yellow and make a fabulous card and link it to the Rainbow Card Challenge. We would love to see you! 

Thank you for stopping by! :)
