Summer Fun

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone and Happy Friday!
Wow, it's Friday again? Doesn't it seem like the summer is just zooming by? I still can't believe we are creeping up on August already! One thing is for sure... once fall approaches, things start to slow down some in my neck of the woods and that means a bit more craft time for me :) 

I have a cute little project to share with you today! I was excited to find a little time to play in Craftin Desert Divas fun Linky Party~"Beach Theme" challenge that is going on.

I used a darling digital stamp from Craftin Desert Diva's called Floatie Girl for my card. I printed the image on card stock and colored her in with copics. I die cut the image using the Banner Dies and layered it on black mat the was layered onto the card base. I stamped the sentiment which is from the Gotta Wear Shades stamp set onto a Flag Banner Die. The adorable glasses are from the Taylored Expressions~Spectacles Die and the Corn Maze Sequins are from Craftin Desert Diva.
I made a fun little beach pail to go along with the card. I found this adorable beach pail at the Silhouette Store and cut on my Cameo. The sweet little image is stamped with the Gotta Wear Shades stamp set from Craftin Desert Diva and colored it with copics as well.
 I stamped the sentiment using the same stamp set onto a Flag Banner Die. I stamped the cute little face on the shovel with Peachy Keens Bucket List Emojis Face Asst stamp set. I then tied the shovel to the bucket with twine. I  filled the bucket with sour patch worms and tied a bow with some ribbon from my stash.

Brrr-ing on the holidays

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a good week!
I noticed a few Christmas in July challenges going on and thought I would join in. Not to mention, what a great way to get started on some Christmas cards, right?? Maybe for once, I can actually have some done ahead of schedule, lol! I have some new dies and stamps from Craftin Desert Diva that I used on this fun Christmas card~
Hope you like it:
After creating the base, I cut a panel for the background and water colored it with SU certainly celery. I stamped the inside sentiment with Craftin Desert Diva's~Chill Out stamp set. I then framed it with Craftin Desert Diva's~Crazy Stitched Frames. I turned this into a fun little shaker card and filled it with yummy Snow Palace sequins.
The adorable penguins and bulb are stamped with the same set, Chill Out and colored with copics. I added a little Wink of Stella for some shimmer. The bulbs are hanging with some twine from my stash and the faces are stamped with Peachy Keen Stamps~new Bucket List Emojis Face Asst.
I also created a cute little treat bag to match. The glassine bag is from Trendy Twine and is perfect size to hold some yummy candy or even a gift card :) The sweet penguin is adhered to an oval from the Banner Dies. I added a small strip of washi tape and then a little twine bow to
finish it up.

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

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!

Happy July 4th

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hello Everyone! 
Wow, can you believe it's July?! Wow, the time flies, ha?
We are just about to take off for the weekend so I have this as a scheduled post. We have some plans to visit family and then spend time at the lake.
Hope you have a fun and safe 4th! 

I have a very quick treat to share that I whipped up for the 4th! 
You know, with little ones running around here at Grandma's...they always love a treat?! Arya and her little friend helped me decorate these and had a blast!
I started with just an oreo double filled cookie and took them apart and with a little frosting on the stick, stuck it in the center and then put them back together. I let them set for about an hour and then  dipped them in Wilton's red candy melts. I then drizzled white over them and followed with candy sprinkles.
I put them in cello bags and then tied on a fun little tag. The tag is the SU scalloped oval punch and the sentiment is stamped with Craftin Desert Diva Celebrate Freedom stamp set. Perfect sentiments in this set for all your 4th  creations. 
I am entering this in the following challenges:
1.) Craftin Desert Diva's Linky Party~Red, White & Blue
2.) DL.ART Thankful Thursday #153 Summertime
3.) Little Scrap Pieces Show it Off Saturday
