Stampin' N' Scrappin' Tutorial:Paper Cones

This is my turn at Stampin' N' Scrappin' for a tutorial and I decided to do Paper Cones for May day. I thought that being May Day is fast approaching that these paper cones would work great for May Day baskets for friends and loved ones. I put a little bit of elegance in them by using more fancy papers and decorations.

Starting with a 12x12 pattern paper, Trace a half circle on the opposite side of the design.
(I used a plate for my template.)

Cut out the half circle then mark the center of the straight side.

Trim approximately 1/4 of the half circle. ( Cut from center out)
Using double sided tape, tape the one straight side on none pattern side. Flip paper over and add a small piece of tape to the top of the pattern side.Roll paper into a cone shape pattern side out and tape together. (may want to roll first to shape cone)
Using punches, laces. etc. cut an 11" strip. Using strong adhesives such as double sided tape, glue dots etc., add adhesive to top of strip. (Glue Dots worked best for me)
Line up strip along top of cone and adhere and wrap around cone. (bottom of strip will not lay flat)If using a handle, add another 11" strip by securing each end with adhesive to the inside of top of cone.Embellish your cone with: ribbon, brads, jewels, etc.
Here are a few close up shots of these cones.

KLSNS Challeng #26 - Bling it On!

This weeks challenge over at KLSNS is Bling it On. I was challenged this week by what stamp to use. I really wanted to use this little guy, Chuck but I need to be "blingie" and I didn't know if that quite fit eachother. In the end I think it worked out. I love the image and I think it looks fine to add some gems and sparkle to the little alien. I don't know if it shows up so well but I also used crystal effects on the eyeballs.

We would love to have you join us over on KLSNS for this challenge. It is going on today through next Friday, April 23th at midnight. Come on over and show us your bling.

Materials: HH Chuck, Lizzie Anne
Papers: SU Tempting Turquouis, Only Orange, MME
Embellishments: Gems, Crystal Effects, stickles, Silver cording
Copics:BG32, BG49, YR15, YR18, R02

KLSNS Challenge #25 - Organic

This weeks challenge over on KLSNS is hosted by me. I hope you will all find it interesting. I decided to do an Organic challenge. Being it is close to Earth Day I thought what better way to celebrate than to get people outdoors or at least thinking about things in the outdoors. I personally started my cards by going on a walk, picking things up in the yard, and then creating them back to my craft room. I ended up throwing half of it back into nature but there were a few things that seemed to be interesting. I used some seeds from marigolds that I planted last year. and some twigs for these two cards.
Now, come on over to KLSNS and see what you can come up with. I would love to see your ideas.

As in the past challenge deadline is on Friday, April 16, at Midnight. We would love to have you join in.

Card 1 Card 2
Stamps: Lucy and Kitten Shy Kiki
Paper: SU-black, gray DP-SU SU-Certainly Celery, Tempting Terquios
Embellishments: twigs, dew drops Seeds, eyelet

CHALLENGES: Friday Sketch #95 & Kraftin' Kimmie #24

Here are my challenges for this weeks Friday Sketch and Kraftin' Kimmie. I had a hard time with the sketch being I did not have large Oval dies. But I hope I came close enough for the challenge. I used my Nesties to cut out the image and the frame around the image which works for the KK challenge of using punches or dies. I bought this image from Kraftin Kimmie awhile ago and just haven't had the chance to use it. I love the artsy look of it and thought it looked great with my new Basic Gray paper form KLSNS. I created the paint splashes background with a gel pen.

Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie: Lola Davinci
Paper: SU Old Olive, Chocolate Chip, dp-Basic Gray
Embellishments: Brads
Copics: E00, E11, E31, E55, E25, E47, G40, G882, YG67, Y21, YR23, R29, N3

Thanks for lookin',

Nutcrackers DT Entry

I was visiting a blog of my current DT memeber Jacilynn and found an invite to try out for another DT, Nutshells. I decided to give it a go. Here is my entry. Wish me luck. There is a full time and guest DT available. I think it looks fun.


KLSNS Challenge #24 - Recipe

The recipe for this card is: 1 cardstock, 2 designer papers, and 3 embellishments.
Yep, that makes this a 123 Recipe challenge. I haven't done many recipe cards but this was fun. I decided to use this cute little Hockey player from High Hopes, Goalie Gregg. I think he is great for a boys card which sometimes can be hard to make. I also used a sketch from a passed challenge. I am not sure which one but liked it and missed using it for the challenge.

Remember to head on over to the KLSNS blog site and give this challenge a go. We would love to have you join us. Remember you have until Friday, April 9th at midnight.

Stamps: HH Goalie Gregg, Lizzie Anne
Paper: SU Curry, SU-dp, BG-dp
