A thankful heart is a happy heart

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello my crafty friends~
I hope you had a wonderful weekend! 
I have a pretty card to share that I created for some of the challenges going on right now. It was a bit to hot this weekend so I decided to escaped the heat and play in my craft room some :)

I had picked up this new Die Version Birdhouse Branch Die and thought I would use it for my main focal point on my card. It's funny, because what I had envisioned in my head came out totally different when I was finished?! Anyone else have that happen?  Overall, I am happy with the end result. I definitely need a little practice with the TH splatter brush, lol! 
Hope you like it!
I used beautiful Country Roads papers from The Paper Studio that my friend Lisa  sent me. I love this pretty! Thanks so much Lisa! 
 I distressed the papers with the DIA and also added a layer of cheesecloth between the layers for some texture.  I heat embossed the sentiment from My Creative Time's~A Thankful Heart onto a Ribbon End Banner Die.
I used Die Version Birdhouse Branch Die and cut a few layers and then one out of foam for dimension. The added Sparkling Ice Glitter to the house and the adorable birdie is heat embossed with Shabby Blue Embossing Enamel.
In the right corner is the Bunch of Stitched Doily Die. The butterflies are the Pretty Butterflies & Dragonfly Dies also sprinkled with Sparkling Ice Glitter. The gorgeous ribbon is the Blues Bundle from DL.ART, the twine from My Craft Spot (no longer in business) and the flowers are from Recollection.  The teeny little button in the center is Die Versions Buttons Galore die which is embossed with shabby white enamel embossing powder. I finished with splatters of white acrylic paint applied with the TH splatter brush.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Scrapy Land Challenge #46 Emboss it PLUS brand of die Scrapy Land sells ( Die Version dies)
2.) Frilly and Funkie Challenge~All lined up
3.) Simon Says Monday Challenge~Add some texture
3.) DL.ART July Linky Challenge~Anything Goes
4.)  DL.ART Thankful Thursday Challenge~Summer Foods or can substitute for Thank you

Let's Celebrate~Happy Birthday!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone and happy Saturday! 
I hope you are having a great weekend~ 
It has been super hot here that past few days, in the 90's with high humidity! I certainly don't mind the heat but the humidity is horrible.
I took a break from the heat and found my way to the craft room for some play time...yay!
Today, I have a fun birthday set to share. I used a file from the Silhouette Store #79767 and cut it on my Cameo. I created these yummy Frozen treat favor boxes and cute matching cards to go with them.
I decorated the frozen treats with a tag that is cut at 1 1/2 from the Art Philosophy cartridge. Yup, I fired up the Cricut, hehe! The sentiment is from My Creative Time~Teeny Tag Holidays and I tied on a bow with Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from DL.ART.
The cards are 3 x 6 and decorated with the same papers to coordinate. The Popsicle is cut with another file called Sweet Summer Set (Miss Kate Cuttables) or Silhouette Store #62471 and the sentiment is from My Creative Time~You Make Life Sweet stamp set.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Seize the Birthday Challenge-Birthday Theme-Bold & Bright
2.) Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #275 Anything Goes
3.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #281 Anything Goes (use cricut cut) Art Philosophy cart

Birthday Greetings from under the sea

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hi Everyone and Happy Thursday!
I hope you are having a great week!
Today I have a quick and fun little birthday set to share with you today~
I picked up these awesome new dies at Jaded Blossoms during their July Die Release Blog Hop sale and couldn't wait to create with them.
Hope you like my project~
I used Jaded Blossoms new Scallop Rectangle Dies with the Rectangle Dies 1 for the base and layers of my card. The fun pattern paper is the Echo Park~Let's be Mermaid collection~super fun patterns in this pack:)
The adorable mermaid is stamped with Mermaid Kisses and colored with copics and then a Wink of Stella.  The sentiment is also from this set stamped onto a label that was fussy cut out.
Isn't she sweet?
The Envelope Die was used for the cute treat. It's perfect for a little chocolate, even enough room for a gift card :) I layered the front of it with the Scallop Square Dies and the Stitched Square dies. The label is the Mini Tag Dies 2 and again the sentiment is from Mermaid Kisses.  I finished both the card and treat with a little twine from my stash.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Decorate to Celebrate Challenge #15 Anything Goes
2.) DL.ART July Linky Anything Goes
3.) Little Scrap Pieces  Show it off Saturday

Jaded Blossom July Customer Challenge

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone! 
I hope you are all doing well?!
I have been trying to make some rounds the last couple of days when I've had a little time. It sure has been a busy summer so far with weddings, family gatherings and spending time with my granddaughters~They are at such a FUN age right now~they make my heart happy!

I had some time in my craft room today and couldn't wait to play in some fun challenges going on. I made a set of birthday cards and treat using a darling stamp set from Jaded Blossoms called
 Turtley Rad.  Jaded Blossom makes it super easy to use the SVG outlines so you don't have to fussy cut the images out.  Once you download it, you can open it in your svg software to create an offset to cut and stamp your images on. Super easy! 
I started with a Spellbinders Fleur De Lis Squares die for the base and then followed with layered squares. The sweet turtles are colored with copics and popped with foam adhesive tape. I finished with some sequins from my friend Carri at Doubleclick
The Gable Boxes are also from Jaded Blossom. I adhered these darling turtles on with foam tape and added a bundle of balloons to their tail. The balloons and the fun hat is created with Jaded Blossoms Birthday Dies. The faces on the balloons are from Peachy Keen Stamps~Bucket List Emojis Face Asst set.
 Aren't they cute?
  The sentiment is stamped with Turtley Rad onto a Panel Die. I finished with filling the boxes with chocolate kisses and tying on a cute bow with ribbon from my stash. The tiny turtles even comes on this stamp set to decorate the yummy chocolate kisses to match your creation. So fun!
I am entering this in the following challenges:

The sentiment is stamped with the same set.
I used Jaded Blossoms Goody Bag Die for the treat holder and then decorated the front panel up. I water colored the background with TH spiced marmalade and SU Barely Banana inks and with a water brush applied it and then let dry.
