Simon Says Stamps Sentimental Circles Shaker Card

Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U, I hope your week is going smooth, mine, not so much, I got a touch of flu, however I can't afford to get sick right now I have too much going on, crafting, organization and clean up at my house and craft room, and also getting ready to go on vacation with my family.
Any how, I wanted to share with you this card that I made using a combination of new and not so new Simon Says Stamp.
I used the stitched circle die, the "Sentimental circle stamp set from the most recent release, "Falling for you", the cat from the "Furry cat and box" stamp set, the Envelope sentiments stamp set, and the small birthday hat from the "Hats off you" stamp set by Lawn Fawn.
I hope you'll enjoy this card and get inspired to try some shaker cards.

 I'm not an expert on shaker cards by any means, but with some some tips that my crafty friend Mayra from gave me, this card came really easy! The real trick is on the adhesive, I think, other than that no science.
 I am absolutely in love with the Simon Says Stamp stitched circle dies. I can't recommend them enough, if you want stitched dies.
I rarely embellish the inside of cards, if you want to see pretty insides, you need to visit my crafty  friend Tanya Adams, from Studio 3080 she does some beautiful incard designs. However I decided to add some sentiment to the inside and some sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by, I'll see you soon with more Crafty Time 4U

Lawnscaping Challenge, New Technique: Foil

Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U! I hope you had a blessed Memorial Day Weekend! I appreciated those who selfless gave their life for others!
Lawnscaping Challenge No. 106 is about trying a new technique.
The technique I tried was foil. I tried the different application, with the exception of toner print, and my favorite way was the "Score Tape" sticky sheets.
Let's look at the card that I created using the the foil technique.

 I cut stripes of the adhesive sheets (about 3/8") and placed them on diagonal, cut the excess off and applied the Deco-Foil using my fingers to apply pressure.

I adhered part of the score tape sheet on a piece of cardstock and diecut my frame, them I applied foil, again using just my fingers to apply pressure. I stamped another frame from white cardstock and cut just the center part to stamp the sentiment.

Finally I stamped and die cut some flowers from the Penelope's blossoms and adhere them using Foam adhesive and Tombow liquid glue.
I place all of my elements on a 5.5 x 4.25 white card base, and added some enamel dots.

If you want my opinion or review of the foil technique, please let me know in the comment section! 
Have a wonderful week!

Puppy Love Gift Tags

Hello, and welcome back to Crafty Time 4U It's Friday! and yesterday was my son's last day of this school year! Honestly I am sad, the school year flew away! I really don't want him to grow up so quickly! 
It was a crazy week and I finally going to have time to caught up with the blogs I read and all your comment on the different social media! 
Today I'm at the Marker POP blog sharing with you some tags that I created using the My Favorite Things "You got my heart" and the "You make my tail wag" stamp sets! I am such a pet person and every time I see a cute set with dogs or cats I have to have it! I love the sentiments on this two stamp sets, they are so sweet and helpful to deliver all kind of messages and greetings!
Here are the tags that I created, I hope you'll enjoy them, get inspired and try these adorable stamp sets. I hope you have an awesome and crafty weekend! 

All of the supplies are listed and linked bellow
To create the base for this tags, I use the "Stitched tags Dienamincs," and The "Stitched speech bubble edges" by My Favorite Things. I also used a variety of "Distress inks" to add colorful touches to some of the elements, like the grass and sky.

For this background, I used the small brick stencil, images and sentiments from the "You make my tail wag" stamp and coordinated die set by My Favorite Things
For this tag I used the "You have my heart" stamp and coordinated die by My favorite thing, the grass border is by Lawn Fawn


On this tag I used the images from "You make my tail wag" stamp set and coordinated die, and the sentiment from the "You have my heart" stamp set. Again the grassy border by Lawn Fawn
For the hole reinforcement, I used the small hole die from the "Tag you're it" die set by Lawn Fawn and added some twine.

Smile, Laugh, and Giggle With ME Photo Bomb Set

Welcome back to Crafty Time 4U, I hope your weekend was productive and fun! 

I was at the Marker POPblog on Saturday with a Colorful Saturday post and today, I am sharing the same card here at my blog for those of you that visit over here!
I used the new set by Mama Elephant called "Photo Bomb" this adorable stamp set coordinates with the Mama Elephant Creative Cuts "Polaroid Fun"
I used a lot of different Copic Markers, however, the images in this set are small, so there is not need for much of blending.
I have all the colors listed, as well as all the supplies linked bellow
I hope you'll enjoy this card and get inspired to give this set a try!

I wanted to go for a cork board look, as if the pictures were pinned to the board, so I added some adhesive cork with some enamel dots to simulate the pins.

I sponge some "Vintage photo Distress Ink"on the edges of the Polaroids to give them a little more character and dimension

I also stamped the sentiment and used the "Peacock Feathers Distress Marker to fill in the letters on the sentiment, to match the blue patterned paper to the left of the card. If you don't' have the peacock feather distress marker, smudge the ink pad on an acrylic block and use a blender pen. I went over real quick because this is not water color cardstock.

Copic Markers that I used: B06, BG13,  BG53, BG11, C5, C7, E000, E00, E11, E13, E21, E43, E44, E47, E49, E50, E51, E53, R27, RV11, RV13, W1, W3 W4, Y11, Y13, Y21, YR24  100
