Glitter Explosion Blog Hop

If you have arrived here from Pattern By Sher then you are in the right place! :-)
If you just came to OBX Stamping & Crafting to visit then please consider going to Yolie's and start at the beginning of the Glitter Explosion Blog Hop so you won't miss a single great project!

I have two projects for you today both very Glittery! The first one is in honor of Memorial Day, My Husband is retired from the US Coast Guard, so he is a Veteran and I am very proud of him and his service to our great country.
I bought this tray for $1 at Wal-Mart and I used glitter vinyl to embellish it. I created the
"God Bless the USA" from fonts on my computer and it is available for download over on the right hand side of the blog. I used silver glitter vinyl for the wording and the "white" dots. The dots are created using the basic shapes available in MTC and SCAL I used 1" circles and 1/2" circles, I cut 5 circles in the larger size and 5 circles of the smaller size in each of the three colors and placed them randomly. This tray is hand washable, I vinyled my mailbox over a year ago and it is holding up perfectly! (I did try to dishwasher a vinyled plate and the vinyl stayed but it started to "pick up" on the edges, so Hand wash!!) Here is a close up of the glitter vinyl.

My second project is a super cute card,

I used a svg from Blackleaf Studios' Flying High SVG and Graphics set and the background cloud paper is also from Blackleaf Studios. I used all glitter papers to cut out the airplane, the digi cloud paper and some yellow cardstock for the card base. The sentiment is from Joy's Life "You're So Punny" Stamp set. I really like this card, it is so bright and cheerful!

The next stop on your hop is Melin over at Paper Crafting World.

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

I created today's card using Joy's new "Barnyard Puns" Stamp set, this set is a must have and is so cute, I have made a bunch of cards with this set so far and have a bunch more planned! I used a new company for the svg pattern, Scrapping Bug Designs, I used their "Garden" pattern set and it is so cute and easy to cut and layer. I made the tomato plant using the tomatoes from svgcuts.com's " Veggie Garden Part 2" , the plant is from Lettering Delights "Spring is Bliss" svg set and I made the tomato cage using some toothpicks and twine from The Twinnery. I used a little chalk ink to highlight my pieces and a few gel pens to add detail and I was done! I hope you all like the card! A few notes, when I reach 500 followers, I have a HUGE giveaway coming so tell your friends and also please go over to my Facebook page and "like" me there, when I reach 100 followers on there I am having a giveaway too!!
Click on the pic of the stamps to go to Joy's and order this set, I am absolutely LOVING it, there are so many options and she has two new sets available for pre-order that are fabulous!!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

This week Joy assigned a summer theme so here is my take on a summer theme. I used  Joy's Life "You're So Punny" Stamp set for the sentiment and the cutie patootie girl in her beach chair with umbrella and super cool umbrella drink is from My Scrap Chick's "Bella & Baxtor at the Beach". The sand is a piece of kraft paper that I hand tore and then used some chalk inks to give it more dimension and the wave is from Stacey Pamprin (her website is no longer a working site) I already have a friend I am sending this card to and my friend will love it!!

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

I just love this weeks Joy's Life Design Team card! I used Joy's Life "Yummy Puns" stamp set for the sentiment, I used my masking technique to stamp the sentiment in two different colors.

The pears are from Lettering Delights " Eat, Drink and Be Hairy" svg set, the lips on Mrs Pear are from Lettering Delights "Lip Smackers" and the Bowler hat on Mr Pear is from Lettering Delights " Holiday Hats" I used the bunny ears hat and left off the ears. I used twine from the Twinnery and the tag is an svg that I can't remember where I got it (if anyone can help, please comment!) The checked paper is a digi paper from Lettering Delights Paper Pack "Best Witches" and the solids are from Michael's Recollections 12x12 cardstock pack. I hope that this card has showed how we can use items "outside the box" like the Halloween paper and the lips and hat, I almost didn't buy the svg files for the lips and the hat but I am so glad I decided to grab them, they really let you embellish other files, they can expand you other sets, they are like accessories and they can also stand on their own, I just love that! LOL I almost forgot, the flowers and brad on Mrs Pear are Prima flowers from my stash as well as the brad. Have a great Crafty Day!

Thanks a Melon Card

I finally found some time to play in my craft room yesterday and I finished this card that has been in production for - ever it seems! I will have to be honest and say I have no idea where I got the scalloped card base, I am sure it is from a scalloped square and I welded two together but it has been so long, I forgot. (hanging my head is shame!) The red checked picnic cloth I created using some digital paper and I used Photoshop to warp it so that it looked more like a cloth thrown down on the ground, I do like the way it turned out, pretty much like I imagined! LOL (that doesn't often happen LOL) The watermelon is from Lettering Delights "Summer Treats" svg set and the ants are from Just Yolie, they are actually two pieces, I only used the silhouette and drew in the eyes since they are so small. The twine is from the twinnery and the sentiment is from Joy's Life "Yummy Puns" stamp set. I hope to be posting more often, life has been rather crazy for me lately and the craft room has been getting rather dusty, I hope that has changed now! LOL

Joy's Life Design Team Thursday

I used Joy's Life Stamp Set "Yummy Puns" and a freebie svg to create this card for my mom for Mother's Day. I did use my Copic markers to give the popcorn more dimension and the inside says "Happy mother's Day" that I created using a font on my computer. Have a very Happy Mother's Day and Cinco De Mayo Everyone!
