Congratulations-U Rock!

Hello and Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion! 

Hello Everyone! I hope you are all having a great day! I have been a busy bee today. I have been spending some time today cleaning and organizing my craft room.  It seriously looks like a disaster :( So, I decided I would quickly make a card for a few challenges that I just had to play in and then....get busy! So, that is what my afternoon is all about. I know I will feel so much better once it's clean and neat! Anyone else a messy crafter at times?

I made a quick card for my son who has a huge passion for music and to congratulate him on his classes at Julliard. I tried to keep it a bit on the masculine side (not happening, lol) which I always have such a hard time with because I like bling, ribbon and fun embellishments. So, anyway...hope you like it! 


My card base is cut at 5.00 x 9.23 from the Artiste cartridge and used my gypsy to weld together. The base layer at 4.53 x 8.36 and the next layer is a label cut at 3.59 x 4.02 and 3.71 x 4.16 also from the Artist cartridge. I embossed it with the spots and dots folder. I added a center mat, embossed with the Allegro folder and then used a Martha Stewart punch for the border.


 I used My Craft Spot cappuccino twine from the Twinery and a sweet tag using the Tiny Tags Metal Dies and the Tiny Tags 2 stamp set. 


The guitar is cut at 4 3/4 from the Life's a Party cartridge, inked up with walnut stain, then added a crinkle ribbon bow using My Craft Spot chocolate truffle ribbon and then popped the guitar up on the label. The congratulations is stamped with My Craft Spot Sweet Sentiment #2  stamp set, the bling from recollections and fun little brad from SU. 


I am entering this in the following challenges: 
1.) Paper Playtime Challenge #2-Use brown on your project
2.) Fantabulous Cricut Challenge #145-The Sound of Music
3.) Die Cuttin Divas Challenge #99-Edge punch with ribbon
4.) Twisted Tuesday Challenge #41-Tic Tac Toe and Crafty Machines (twine, sparkle an congratulations)
5.) Frosted Designs Fabulous Friday Challenge-Music

Thanks for stopping by!

  20. Super cool card for your talented son. You managed to put quite a few embellies on it and it still looks masculine. I am a messy crafter, I like to have lots of stuff around me when I craft.

  21. Wow Julliard!!!! Does he play guitar?? I am assuming because you have a guitar on the card but you know where assuming gets us, lol... That is amazing!!! Your card is amazing too as hard as you tried to make it masculin.. I think it worked out great!!!!! Lets just say it is closer than I would come to getting it to be masculin, LOL It is gorgeous Sherrie, the shape and cuts you used are simply beautiful, your son will love it! You must be one proud mom... I know I would be! hugs
