Thank You Card with Core'dinations and Craftwell

 Hi it is Pam today sharing a big Thank You to Core'dinations for being this months sponsor with us at Craftwell.
 I started my card by running the Core'dinations ColorCore paper through my eBosser along with a Nesting Doily Die from LifeStyle Crafts.
I just love the beautiful impression that Teresa Collins Damask Embossing Folder makes using the Core'dinations Paper. (Make sure to lightly sand once you have embossed to get a full affect of the color core center.) Thanks for stopping by and look forward to sharing with you next week. Hugs Pammejo

August Kit Projects with C'est Magnifique

Today is my first post for C'est Magnifique using the August Kit. This kit is so romantic as you will see with my projects.  
For my first project I used a wedding photo of my gorgeous daughter in law, like I said the paper is just so romantic and worked perfect for this wedding layout. I used mist on the paper, filigree,  letters, tag and resin fairy,
 For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.

I love this layout of my sweet grand-daughter. I created my back ground using  green paint, gesso and honeycomb mask from my stash prior to layering my photos to. I made a few flags from the paper and the sticker sheet. I then added clusters of flowers, wood letters and stickers from the kit . 
For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.

I love to make cards so I create a couple from the kit.  I used a doily die I had from stash along with a piece  paper from the kit. I cut the doily in half so I could use it on both cards. The journal cards from the kit was sprayed with the mist from the kit....aren't they pretty. I love to fussy on each card there is a handmade of the dove, the other of the roses. 
For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.

This has to be my favorite piece I created with the altered tray. I painted the tray and filigree from the kit with green paint from my stash. Add some of the beautiful paper and sticker border to each piece along with the beautiful flowers and resins.
 For my layout I have used the main kit, the flower add-on kit, the embellishment add-on kit.
I hope you enjoyed my projects using the August Kit and loved that you stopped by, see you next time!!!! Pammejo

Hot Air Balloon Party Favor with Core'dinations and Craftwell

Hi today I am sharing with you how to  make Hot Air Balloon Party Favor Boxes. These are super easy to make and can be used for lots of different occasions...
Start by getting your eBosser ready with the platforms and your hot air balloon die, along with your Core'dinations Nostalgic Paper Pad. Cut two of each of the balloons using your favorite papers from the paper pad.
This is the amazing part...see how many of the balloons you can place on the eBosser platforms using Teresa Collins Damask Embossing Folder. 
After you have your hot air balloon cut and embossed, sand both sides using your sanding block.
Stack the balloons and sew down the center.
Cut your box out, using the eBosser and Teresa Collins Woodgrain Embossing Folder, emboss. Ink front and back of pieces and form box. 
Here is a closer look at the box once it was formed and decorated. 
I placed my hot air balloon into the box and added candy after it was decorated. I hope you enjoyed my Hot Air Candy Box Party Favor Box and try to make some for yourself. Hugs Pammejo

Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #12 - Who's The Boss Challenge

 Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge #12 - Who's the Boss?
Today is all about embossing for the challenge on the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog. I made my card using products from Crafters Companion. I love the background the Make A Wish Embossing Folder made using red card stock, it gave such an amazing detailed image. I stamped and colored my Jessica image from the stamp set  using alcohol markers on to white card stock, layered it on to some of the red cardstock that I had left over and matching pattern paper when I was finished coloring. I stamped "Time To Celebrate" from the Jessica Stamp Set on to some yellow pattern paper and made some flags to place on my card front. Added a few flowers and a fancy satin bow to finish my card up. So I hope you show us some embossing on your project ....   All you have to do is create a project that you have embossed and load into the Craft Hoarders Anonymous Challenge Blog...easy peasy. You can use dry embossing or heat embossing. You can use an embossing folder or a stencil. You can emboss with embossing paste or embossing powder. You can even create something with ultra-thick embossing enamel. You probably have some sort of embossing apparatus in your hoard.
Well, every challenge should have a prize packages... Spectrum Noir and Crafter's Companion has given us this fabulous prize package as a giveaway for Challenge #12. WELL HERE IT IS!!!!

Rose Thank You Card with Craftwell and Core'dinations

I love making Thank You Cards...I feel we all need to remember to send thank you cards out more often, it is always nice to receive something pretty in the mail when you want to say thanks to someone. 
And the gorgeous Core'dinations ColorCore Nostalgia Cardstock makes it so easy to make multiples of any card especially when you are using Teresa Collins large embossing folders.
I cut my pieces from 3 different pieces of the shades of purple from the pad and did a border punch on the lightest of the paper...
 Layered them all at once onto the Damask Embossing Folder....
Running them through the eBosser at one time, how cool is that....
 And there you have it, all beautifully embossed, all at I said super easy to make multiples of the thank you card.
 Layer the pieces on to your card base....
I added a pretty rose that I colored in using my Copic Markers to the center of my card, along with some stick pins, ribbon and sentiment to the front to finish my Rose Thank You Card with. Hugs Pammejo

Happy Birthday Card with Cardabilities - Sketch 103

 Wow, is all I can say about the fabulous Cardabilities Sketch 103 that Karan Gerber design for us this month. It is amazing!!!! I created my card using Teresa Collins Hello Life Collection along with Couture Creations dies and Prima Flowers. 
 Here is a better look at the sketch and you can see my interpertation of it.
 I added a few Prima Flowers and leaves along with a few hand made rosettes and flourishes to my card. I always love adding bows and seam binding makes fabulous bows.
I distressed the edge of my base papers to help give that vintage feel and did some stamping on the paper with black ink prior to adding the die cuts. The fancy label is fussy cut from one of the journal blocks that come in the collection. 
 I love sharing with you all the dimension that you can achieve by doing a bit of layering with pop dots.

I try to finish my inside of my card and I thought the Oh Happy Day Journal Block was perfect for my Happy Birthday Card. So make sure to check out the challenge on the Carabilites site and link up your projects using Sketch 102. Hugs Pammejo
