5 & 12: Birthday card ideas from Stephanie!

Hi Crafty Friends!
Check out the absolutely adorable birthday cards that TCP designer, Stephanie has for you today!
Hey y’all! Hope this Tuesday finds you well & (if you’re in the US), getting ready for the Thanksgiving holiday! It’s such a great time for being with family & giving thanks for all that we are fortunate enough to  have. And then, it’s time to gear up for Christmas! While I love the season & am really excited, we have some birthdays to celebrate first! My nephew has a birthday in November & my youngest nephew’s birthday
is on December 12. Leah’s birthday is December 10 & she will be 12 this year! Holy-time is flying!!!
So before I dive head first into the Christmas season, I made some birthday cards. Both feature flair & sequins from The Crafty Pickle.

I used the Birthday button flair set & the Winter Sequins mix for both of my cards.
For my second card, I started with sketch #111 fromCardabilities and made Leah’s birthday card
I love the shimmer of this “Happy Birthday” flair! It’s great for a 12 year-old girl!!
be sure to visit The Crafty Pickle shop to see these products, and more!
Now that these birthday cards are behind me, I can make more Christmas projects!!
Have a good one!

Thankful Cards with designer, Kristin!

Hi Crafty Friends!
  Today, TCP Designer, Kristin, has some adorable handmade pocket cards she is sharing perfect for this season. Take a look!  
 
Hi Kristin here with my first blog post for The Crafty Pickle and I thought that this “Thankful Heart” stamps set just screamer for me to make some pocket pages cards for the kids to write what they were “Thankful” for this year!!
On the top left hand corner cards I thought that I would put a 5X7 picture of my family and I would slide it under the “Thankful Heart” stamped sentiment, then on the cards the kids would write over the wood grain embossing folders from Close to my Heart and all the different techniques I tried with the 3 different leafs stamps that were in the Thankful Heart stamp set, and then I added the arrow button flair set on the cards for you to follow your eyes around the layout!!!

 

 And then here are the close-ups:

 


Product I used:
Black  & Brown Stazon
Ranger White Super Fine Embossing Powder
Paper Trimmer, Foam Mat & Corner Rounder

Thank you for looking at my work!!

Thanks Kristin, adorable cards!!!

Bring on the Polar Bears!

Hi Everyone! 

  Today, design team member Julie has some great inspiration using the adorable Polar Bear Holiday stamp set from Close To My Heart! Take a look!

Hello!
Today had to show a series of CAS-cards that I made ​​for  The Crafty Pickle .
Next will be a lot of pictures and a little bit of English text, which gives me difficulty, still) Happy viewing and winter CAS-inspiration!
***
Hello!
Today I want to show you my winter card series with the cutest polar bears!
These stamps are very good and these bears are absolutely gorgeous!
For my first card I used the bear on the sledge. I coloured the scarf with watercolor pencils, stamped the sentiment inside of the card and made a round window to see it. I love the beautiful golden stars – it’s a perfect little accent.
For the second card I made the background using the snowflake stamp from the set. Little tiny snowflake looks great! I also create the snowdrifts and embossed it. I think that the bear wearing hood is my favorite!
 And my third card has silver heat embossing. Snowflakes looks very beautiful, especially in the sunshine. Here, I coloured the bear’s sweaters using Distress Ink and water.
I hope this helps you get in a wintry holiday mood!
***
That’s all for today, I hope you enjoyed my card series)
Have a nice day!
-Julie

Life Is Beautiful!

Hi Everyone! 

Up on the blog today we have a terrific Project Life layout from Stephanie! Take a look!

Hey y’all! Hope you are having a Wonderful Wednesday.
I have a PL spread to share today featuring flair and sequins from The Crafty Pickle!

I have used the Autumn flair and the Autumn Sequins mix. The flatter back of these flair buttons make them easy to add to my PL pages & they fit in my album without a ton of bulk! Check out the awesome selection in the store.

The two larger journal cards are from WRMK & the smaller “Gratitude” card is from MAMBI. Fall is one of my favorite seasons & I adore these photos from a trip to an apple orchard that our family likes to visit. The flair & sequins helped give the feel of Autumn to my page.
Thanks for visiting today. Keep crafty!!

Thanks Stephanie! I love how the sequins and flair added the special touch to an already awesome layout!

Creative gift idea using flair.

Hi Friends!
Today we have a great gift idea from design team member, Joann!If you stopped by my blog a few days ago, I shared with you all that I participated in a couple of Christmas craft fairs! It was my first time, and let me tell you, it was an awesome experience. I met a lot of people and actually made a few friends!

So with that said, I am sharing with you my first The Crafty Pickle Design Team post! I had a few nugget tins left over from my fairs (8 to be exact, lol) and I thought that I could redesign them for a few Thanksgiving gifts for a few family members and friends!

I used both CTMH Cartridges (Artiste and Art Philosophy) to cut all of my leaves at 2 inches and used some watercolors to give them so color. I wrapped my nugget tin with some craft paper (cutting that at 2 inches) and tied some brown twine. I then glued all of my leaves down and added some TCP November Flair to the center where all of my leaves met and finished it off with some fabulous TCP Autumn Sequins Mix! Hope you enjoyed my gift idea!

Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to stop by the The Crafty Pickle Etsy Shop for some awesome goodies!

Supplies used:
Watercolor Paper
Brown Twine
Watercolors
Thanks, Joann. This is absolutely adorable!!!
Happy Gifting everyone!

Happy Thanksgiving: Card by Carrie Bryant

Hi Carrie here to share with you a Thanksgiving card I made for my In-laws.

I created this card using the Thankful Heart stamp set from CTMH.  I love that I could use my watercolors to bring the fall colors of the leaves to life in this set. The sentiment is perfect for Thanksgiving too.

I am in love with the Sweater Weather collection by Simple Stories.
I think this great stamp set coordinates perfectly with this collection.  The fall mix sequins from TheCraftyPickle are a perfect accent to complete my card.

Thanks for stopping by today.

I wish you and yours a Blessed Holiday season filled with Thankful hearts.

Carrie

 

Thanks Carrie, I just love that stamp set and your card is just adorable!

Make sure to stop by this Monday for our FIRST blog hop and of course lots of prizes!

Have a great weekend everyone!

It’s PSL season!

Hi there, its Treasa here today to share a Project Life card that I made using some of the new Autumn sequin mix in The Crafty Pickle shop and a new flair badge that Taniesa created for wonderful fall season. I must confess that I absolutely love the fall, mostly because of the beautiful trees and the cooler weather but also because its “Pumpkin Season” and I love anything pumpkin and one of my most favorites are Pumpkin Spice Lattes from Starbucks. These things are fabulous and its like getting a mouthful of fall.
As soon as I received the Autumnsequin mix and thePSl flair I knew I had to create a Project Life card to document my love of PSL.

Here is a close up of that wonderful PSL flair and some of the sequins from the Autumn mix.

I also used some of the paper from the Close to my Heart Pathfinding line. This collection is so perfect for fall and coordinates so well with the Cozy Fall button flairs in the shop. You can also find the Pathfinding collection in Taniesa’s CTMH shop here.

Here’s one last look at the gorgeous Autumn sequin mix in the shop.

Thank you for stopping by and go check out The Crafty Pickle shop and blog.
