.....love and appreciation

Hi blogger friends!

I've got a card to share today that was suppose to be in October for Pastor Appreciation, but our Pastor just went through a bout of prostate cancer where they removed the prostate. So we moved it to November so he could recoop. We also took up a collection and today we presented he and his wonderful wife, not only with this card of appreciation but we're sending them to Hawaii for a few days. How fun is that! They were totally surprised and shocked and neither of them has been to Hawaii. (He's totally cancer free and no chemo, thank you Jesus!)

3-D Diorama

Hey blogger friends!

I have what's being called a 3-D diorama to share today.

Entering in these challenges:

Aud Sentiment - #188 AG
Crafting With Friends - #50 AAG
Crafty Creations - #350 AAG
Crafty Sentiments - Dies/ or Punches
Creative Fingers - #136 AAG
Creative Moments - #126 AAG
Dies R Us - #81 Fancy Corners
Fab n Funky - # AG/For a Friend
Glitter n Sparkle - #256 Embossing
Inky Chicks - #88 Use Fav Colors
Jo's Scrap Shack - #206 AAG
Penny's - #346 AAG
Polkadoodles - #36/37 AAG
QKR Stampede - #261 AG
The Paper Shelter - #309 Embossing

The dies on the front is from Crafter's Companion Die-sire dies. What's cool about these are that there are two seperate dies, a left side and a right side that you can use seperately or together, plus 2 more seperate butterflies. I chose to use both sides, which fits together seemlessly, and one of the butterflies.


On this one, the diorama is just a front and a back. But I've seen very intricate ones with as many as 6 layers deep. Pretty fun. Maybe one of these days I'll give it a shot.


The base papers for this is pretty easy.  The dies put together cut a 5x5" opening. So I figured a 6x6" front, plus 1/2 " on either side, plus another 1" on either side.
So you cut 2, 9x6" pcs of paper, scoring at 1", 1 1/2", 7 1/2" and 8", and then cut out the dies in the center. After you decorate both pieces, you adhere the two 1" sides together.



That's it for today!

Happy BEE-day!

Evening blogger peeps!

Wow! It's been over a month since my last post, where did August go?!

I've got a Bee-day card to share that I saw on Pinterest that I thought I'd try.

Entering in these challenges:

Aloha Fridays - #102 Birthdays
Brown Sugar - #266 AG
Catch The Bug - #9-1 AG
Crafting With Friends - #49 AAG
Crafty Creations - #349 AAG
Crafty Sentiments - AG
Creative Fingers - #136 AAG
Jo's Scrap Shack - #204 AAG
Pammie's Inky Pinkies - #1736 AAG
Polkadoodles = #34/35 AAG
Tuesday Throwdown - #359 Punches or Dies
The Sisterhood of Crafters - AG

This is what I'm calling a Center Step Card w/ a Center Stage.

I didn't have a template for this I just eyeballed it from the picture and came up with a 7x10" base, with 3/4" sides that fold at 1" increments, and then cut in another 1" from the sides and 3/4" from the top for the stage, with 1/4" fold at the back of the stage pc to adhere to the back of the card.
Don't know if that makes any sense.


For the bee hive, I cut strips of paper at graduating different lengths and used my corner rounder punch and scissors to make the ends round, (that was a little tricksey) then glued them together. I glued a pc of black paper to the back (for the entrance) about 1/4" longer than the hive and folded it back to adhere to the stage and to make it stand up.


The flowers are daisy dies that I had in my stash, and the bees.


The hexagon background is an embossing folder that I inked with a brayer and just pressed onto the paper.     The sentiment I printed out from WordPad on my computer, cut on a banner die.


That's it for now.
Thanks for takin' a peak and to all the challengers above for lettin' me play along.
Blessings!
