Robin's Nest DT

I am thrilled to participate in the Robin's Nest DT Hunt today.
 I am applying for both the Altered Art team and the Card team.
 I would love to fill my blog up with projects for BOTH teams made of Robin's Nest products!!!
Those that are interested in applying for the team have sent in a bio and application. In return we received this NIFTY logo and a chance to showcase a project of our choice!

~ Happy Thoughts ~
My project is this 3-D Mason Jar card.
To begin with I cut the Daisy Stripe Teal Cardstock
to a 4x7 and punched each end with a Kreaxions border punch.
Then I layered the Brilliant Blue Glitter Cardstock
so that it provided a contrast behind the butterfly border.
Finally I cut and folded the Boy Swirl Glitter Cardstock
into a 5x7 card blank to hold my fancy card front.
For this card I used an acrylic mason jar stamp.
 I stamped on my card front and on green paper.
I added cork butterflies and gold confetti
for the inside of the jar on the card front.
I cut the jar from the green paper with a craft knife and used dimensional adhesive to pop up the jar over its contents.
I punched large and small butterflies from the glitter cardstock
and placed them on the card for color accents.

Supplies:
Paper:Bella Blvd and Robin's Nest
Stamp:Little Yellow Bicycle
Ink:Clearsnap
Cork:American Crafts
Confetti:Spiegel Mom Scraps
Punches #901 and #604:Kreaxions

Scrap On!

 The nights become colder and the leaves begin to change;
 Fall puts on a color show!

Adventure Awaits

Autumn is my favorite season.
I live for long walks on those cool, clear days! 
Then there is the back-to-school, harvest, pumpkin everything...
yep, it's my favorite!
~ Adventure Awaits ~
I used Kreaxions punches and circle cutter to recreate that feel for this card.
For the sunshine I used Punch # 902 around the edge of a 5in circle. I connected the punched designs with a craft knife. I cut the resulting doily and inked the edges. 
The clouds started with a 4in circle and Punch #920. I layered them at the top edge of the card and under the sun.
Stop by the Just Imagine Blog to view more great stuff!

Supplies:
Paper:Craftsmith
Twine:Pick Your Plum
Chip Board:Simple Stories
Tiny Type:Authentique and Carta Bella

All The Best

Today's project is a Mason Jar card.
~ Wishing You All The Best ~
To make this card I stamped the mason jar twice. 
Once on the card front and a second time, on green paper.
With a bit of work with my craft knife I had second dimension for my card. I used dimensional adhesive to pop it up. I over stamped when I was adding the dandelion wishes so I tied on a twine bow and called it good.

Supplies:
Paper:Craftsmith
Stamps:CTMH, Little Yellow Bicycle
Alpha Stamps:Mason Row Pegs
Ink:ColorBox
Glitter Glue:Ranger
Twine:stash
Border Punch:Kreaxions #902
