Have a Happy Day

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone!
 I hope your having a fantastic day!
Today, I have a fun little box to share with you. I made it to hold some chocolates and a gift card for a friends birthday. Of course, the gift card for this buddy is for a craft store~I don't know about you.. but for me, a gift card in a craft store is truly celebrating like a kid in a candy store!!! LOL!
I cut the gable box at 4" from the Artiste cartridge. The 3 pattern papers I used are from a DCWV paper stack called La Creme. It's an older stack but I sure like the papers!
The label is a Spellbinders Fancy Frame Tags 2. I distressed the edges with frayed burlap and then used sparkling ice glitter along the edges. I stamped the sentiment with My Craft Spot's Build A Birthday stamp set. The flower is created with  My Craft Spot's Daisy and Rolled Roses flower metal dies and then rolled in sparkling ice glitter along with a fun gem in the center. I tucked in these pretty leaves cut from Poppystamps Dies called the Lovely Tendril die.
I tied on a bow with Midnight Black crinkle ribbon, added a small flower from stash and a cute little tag. For the tag I used the Ting Tags metal die and then stamped the sentiment with the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set and inked the edges with frayed burlap.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Scrapy Land Challenge #1 Anything Goes
(need to incorporate one (or more) die brands that Scrappy Land sells (Poppystamps & Spellbinders)
2.) Love Rubberstamps Challenge #120 Glitter & Sparkle

Thank You

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are all having a great week so far!
 Boy, has the weather ever changed here the last couple of the 40's! Brrrr...not ready for that yet! I have been seeing so many Halloween projects in blogland and lovin' the inspiration but before get started on that, I have a fun little thank you card to share using My Craft Spot's Chunky Alphabet stamp set and the Heart Border metal die set.
 I folded one flap of the card back in half and then using the Heart Border metal die, I carefully ran the heart die through the cuttlebug only part of the way. I re~placed the heart die and repeated that step two more times. I also cut red hearts to layer on top and adhered them down.
The lacy scallop edging in from a Martha Stewart punch and then I stamped the thank you using the Chunky Alphabet stamp set. I tied on small little bows with ribbon from my stash :)
The inside pattern paper is from Echo Park~Sweet Girl. I cut a panel and layered a Spellbinders Decorative Labels Eight. I then followed with a Labels Seventeen which I embossed with the swiss dots folder. This adorable little girl is from the Silhouette store and the face is stamped with PKSC-21 September 2013 stamp set. I added rosy cheeks, some freckles, glossy accents and doodling to finish it up.
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Craftin Desert Divas  Linky Party~Anything Goes
2.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it off Saturday
3.) DL.ART Linky Party~September

Real Love Stories never have endings

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone! 
Happy Friday! I have a quick wedding card to share with you as we are off to another wedding this weekend! This is for my nephew and lovely bride to be. The pictures really don't do justice as it was hard to get good pictures due to the shimmery papers :(

When creating this card, I also kept in mind a few challenges that were going on. The design for this card is from the sketch challenge that is going on over at Die Cuttin Divas this week. There is still a little time if you want to join in.
Here is my card:
I used pretty pattern papers from Paper Studio called Blanc Boutique. I also used some shimmery gray paper I had in my stash.
The label is from the Artiste cartridge and cut at 2 1/2 which is embossed with the divine swirls folder. The oval is cut at 1 3/4 also from the same cartridge and inked around the edges with a Color Box~Silver ink pad.
The sentiment is stamped using My Craft Spot's Happily Ever After stamp set. I heat embossed the sentiment with Top Boss~Silver embossing powder. Isn't that pretty?
I am entering this in the following challenges; 
1.) Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #181 Sketch Challenge
1.) Sweet Stamps Challenge #185 Embossing

Happy Birthday!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion!
Hello Everyone!
I hope your having a great week so far :) Don't they just seem to be flying by so quick? I still can't believe we are in the month of September already! Crazy! 
I have a fun birthday card to share with you today. Once again, using some fun stamps that I picked up from my friend Tara at Craftin Desert Divas. It is called Simply Said and does it ever have some CUTE sentiments on it :) Be sure to go check it is definitely one you should have in your craft room!
I started with a longer style card base/envelope from Lasting Impressions and then popped this sweet clown on it with foam dots.
The clown is from the Silhouette Store which was cut on my cameo, design #44173. I stamped the sweet face using PK-1401 Clowning Around Face stamp set. Oooh, so cute, ha?  I colored in the eyes, added some rosy cheeks and then glossy accents. I also added glossy accents on the hat tassel and the buttons on the clowns suit.
Isn't he just adorable?
I added brackets on the top and bottom of card using My Creative Times Stitched Bracket Die. I stamped the sentiments and the XO's with Craftin Desert Divas Simply Said stamp set. I finished it up by adding a fun little double bow using 3 Girl JAM sunflower crinkle ribbon.
I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) 3 Girl JAM Challenge~Happy Birthday

Just Because

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 
Good Afternoon my crafty friends!
Happy Monday and Happy Labor Day :)
Today, I have a fun card to share with you using stamps from my friend Tara over at Craftin Desert Divas. I coordinated two of the sets for this card. They are called Simply Said and Blooming For You. Tara also has a linky party going on so be sure to head over there and play in the challenge!
The details are HERE
I started with a 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 card base and followed with 3 panels about 1/8" increments. Then distressed all the edges with the zutter DIA. I then used Nesting Eyelet Square dies for the next layers.
The adorable bear is from the Blooming For You stamp set which I colored with copics and then a touch of Wink of Stella glitter pen for a shimmery effect.
I tied on a pretty bow with ribbon from SU that was in my bin. The pink Jute String bow is from My Craft Spot and then a small flower that was added to the center which was from my stash.
The tag is cut at 1 1/2 from Art Philosophy cartridge and the sentiment is stamped with the Simply Said stamp set and then tied on. The corners have citrus skittles that I picked up from my friend Carri.
For the inside, I used SU punches for the circle and the scallop.  I stamped the sentiment and the butterfly all from the Blooming For You stamp set.
