Brown paper packages tied up with strings

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hi Everyone!
I hope you are having a good week so far~
Today I am sharing a quick little project using some of Jaded Blossoms fun stamps and dies. I made a cute card and a matching gift package to hold a treat and some fun craft supplies to give to a few of my crafty friends, just because. I was recently tagged by my blogger buddy, Migdalia last week to participate in Technique Tuesday's Random Act of Cardness. What a fun idea....all you have to do is send out some cards for no reason other than to put a smile on someones face :) 
I embossed the back with a Sizzix folder. The clouds and sun are created with Spring Dies 2 and the face is stamped with PK Bucket List Emojis Face Asst. I layered a Panel Die and stamped the sentiment with Simple Sayings stamp set. The little birdies are from TH and colored with Copics. 
I also have a fun little package filled with some stickles and washi tape. I dressed the little kraft bags from Annie's Paper Boutique with a Luggage Tag Die and stamped with the Special Packaging stamp set. I tied a bow with black licorice trendy twine to finish it up :)

I chose to make a few thinking of you cards since I was so low in my stash~ I used the 
"Scripts & Music Notes stack from DCWV that I won recently from Cut it Up when they were celebrating their 100th challenge. It is such a beautiful stack filled with pretty patterns, some gold and even gorgeous printed vellum~thanks again Migdalia!
The doily is created with My Creative Time's Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies and the sentiment is stamped with the Ouch stamp set. 
The pretty border is from My Craft Spot~fancy Edges 2 dies (now retired) and the cute little banner is My Creative Time's Ribbon End Dies. I finished with some fun little sequins from my stash.

Made Just For You!

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend :)
I had so much fun creating these projects for today.  I used this gorgeous paper from DCWV called Boho Style that Megan from DCWV sent me. I LOVE this paper in this stack! It has printed cardstock with copper foil...so pretty!!! I can't wait to make more projects with it!
Thanks so much Megan~
This cute little 3D rectangle gift box and candy box favor below are from the Silhouette store and cut on my cameo. I decorated the front with a tag that was created with the file from the candy box favor.
 I tucked a few Memory Box Chloe Stems beneath the scallop and then layered a pretty flower using My Creative Time's~Rolled Flower Die.
So pretty!
The sentiments are stamped with My Creative Time's~Belly Band Stamp set. I finished with tying on Whipped Cream crinkle ribbon from my friend, Diana at DL.ART. Great little treat box for a birthday, wedding, anniversary, bridal shower etc. Many Possibilities!

Happy Birthday

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hello my crafty friends!
I hope you are having a great week and ready for the weekend to begin?! Yes, another weekend~they sure do come and go quick, ha?
We are going to have our hands full with two of our granddaughters who will be staying with us this weekend :) We have tickets to take them to Thomas the Train, sponsored by the North Shore Scenic Railroad, lunch, the park and top it off by taking them to the movie. I am pretty sure we will be exhausted when they go home on Sunday, but it will be FUN!

Today, I am sharing a couple of cute birthday cards for Arya's little friends who have birthdays coming up. I used this cute little stamp set from Joy Clair Stamps and paired it up with some fun dies/stamps from Jaded Blossom as well.

I started with Jaded Blossoms Scallop Rectangle Dies 2 for the base. The base layer is the Rectangle Dies 1 and then followed with another Scallop panel.
I stamped this adorable image from Joy Clair Stamps~Hoppy Birthday stamp set onto that panel and colored it with copics. I added a fun birthday hat that is created with Jaded Blossoms Birthday Dies.
I stamped the sentiment with Jaded Blossoms Turtley Rad stamp set onto a Mini Tag Dies 2 and finished with a little bow using ribbon from my stash.

Adventure Awaits

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps
Hi everyone!
I hope you are having a great week~
 I played in a challenge over at Frilly & Funkie and won a gift certificate from the The Funkie Junkie Boutique.  After looking in the boutique, I chose some crafting supplies that I could use for when I start my Christmas projects. Also, in my package of items, a couple of surprises.....there was this awesome image, button and some fun charms included. I have been holding onto them, thinking of what I could create with them and as soon as I saw
  Frilly and Funkie's new challenge "By the Sea"and I knew this was the time.
Thanks again Linda for the fun little extras! 
So, I got busy creating and this is what I came up with~
After choosing my card base and base layer, I followed with a pretty layer which I ran Viva Crackling Cream through a stencil from Folk Art for a crackling effect. After it dried, the next layer is Tim Holtz Sizzix Thinlits Mixed Media Die.  I then began to build the layers again doing the same process. I added cheesecloth for some texture. The sweet image is from Frilly and Funkie which I adhered onto a Jaded Blossom Luggage Tag Die.
 I tucked beneath the tag (on the side) the sentiment which is stamped with Jaded Blossom's
Up, Up and Away stamp set. I embossed it with fantasy silver from Sweet Stamps. The butterflies are Jaded Blossoms Spring Dies 2  and embossed in shabby blue enamel embossing powder.
