Pumpkin Spice Latte Addict’s Coffee Flair Pocket Letter

Happy Friday Pickle Pals!

I am super psyched to share one of my most recent Pocket Letters with you today!

I will be the first to admit that Pumpkin Spice lattes are actually NOT my cup of tea (or coffee), if you will.  However, I DO adore me some caramel frappoccino’s whenever I get close enough to our local Target with a Starbucks inside.  It’s good for my hips and my wallet that it’s not convenient to go to on a daily basis!Ha!! Ha!!!

The basis for my pocket letter was centered around some clipart that I found through Pinterest and Google–the memes, e-greetings, and pretty doodled coffees paired so well with a DCWV Fall paper stack, some old Target dollar spot felt leaves and pumpkins, some new Target dollar spot gold leaf stickers, and last but not least–my awesome coffee flair pieces, twine, and sequin relish mix from The Crafty Pickle shop!  Check out some of my detail shots below–click them to see them larger.

I hope you get to enjoy your own cup of coffee today and the beauty of fall before winter sneaks in!  We have flurries on the forecast here in the northeast this weekend.  It’s too early for me to even think about saying that FOUR letter word–haha.  Keep checking back because our shop should be reopening soon!

Paula’s Card Share

Hi Friends! It’s Paula here with a card share.
For the card base I used white cardstock and the patterned paper is from The Stamps of Life. The stamp set I used is from Close to My Heart. I created a shaker window using a 3×4 rectangle die I have in my stash. Then I added some acetate for the shaker window and relish mix from the shop for the shakers. I fussy cut out a stamped image of the ice cream cone from the set and paper pieced it together then popped it up on some foam tape.

Minions Movie Night Pocket Letter

minion1

Hi Pickle Gals!  I am so excited to share with you another one of my Pocket Letter creations using some fun goodies from The Crafty Pickle Etsy Shop (temporarily closed during their relocation).  Who doesn’t love Minions and a good movie night?!  I printed some fun clipart that I found searching Pinterest and Google and cut that out and layered it onto some MME and Basic Grey paper.  The Movie Night Flair assortment adds some fun details and pop of dimension–and some cool shaker elements!  They were actually what inspired my whole letter–then I used the Movie Night Sequin Relish mix, and the pineapple relish mix with a few google eyes to make some fun shaker pockets with my WRMK Fuse tool (which I LOVE!).  Check out some detail shots below and don’t forget to check back often for an announcement of the shop’s reopening and more fun ideas!  minion2minion3minion4

Have a crafty weekend Friends!

Documenting Moments with CTMH

Handmade Greeting cards are fun to create and to give to friends and family.  Close to My Heart has a ton of great stamps for creating cards.

I just purchased this “Documenting Moments” set.  I wanted to use this set for journaling but I also thought this set would make a cute greeting card to send to my daughter in college. 

I used Hero Arts Ombre Ink in Lilac to Grape to stamp my image. 

The perfect ink choice for this card, my daughters favorite color is purple. 

If your an avid card maker like me you should pick up some of the beautiful CTMH stamps available now.  

Thanks for stopping by today

Scrapping with Flair!

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest layout with you.

I love making scrapbook pages and incorporating flair buttons on my pages always excites me! Here is a look at my page:

new jeep

I started with the latest sketch from My Scraps & More. This is a page about my son’s love for his Power Wheels Jeep! I used lots of round elements to mimic the tires of a vehicle.

I adhered the “Documented” flair button onto a cork circle for more depth. I also used some self-adhesive sequins, also from TCP!

Many times flair buttons are thought to be made for PL or planners, but as you can see, they work well on traditional scrapbook pages too!

Thanks for visiting today!

Scary Halloween to you!

Hi there Crafty friends, it’s Lisa here today to show you a card I created for The Crafty Pickle.

IMG_6773

For this card I used the Close To My Heart Thriller set. To obtain the “grunge” look for the background, I used Ranger’s Alcohol Ink and the Alcohol Blending solution. I mixed these together on a blending sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. Once the cardstock was covered in color, I added the blending solution to the sponge and made quick dabs all over the cardstock. This blended all of the ink and made the colors look more cohesive. Once I achieved the look I was aiming for, I then sprayed the cardstock with the Black Soot Distress Spray to darken up the background a bit.

I stamped the sentiment “scary Halloween to you” on cardstock that I distressed with the Frayed Burlap Distress Ink. To finish the card up, I added a few sequins to the sentiment and the background from the Crafty Pickle Relish Mix.

I hope you enjoyed looking at my card, as soon as the Crafty Pickle shop reopens, be sure to take a peek at all the awesome Relish Mixes and Flairs to add fun to your projects.

Happy Monday!

Fallen Leaves foil card by Carrie

I am super excited to share with you today a project I have been dying to try ever since I saw a demo video by the uber talented Tim Holtz.  I will post the link to his video along with a list of products I used at the bottom of this page. 

 

I really like this NEW “Fallen Leaves” stamp set by CTMH.  The outlines are perfect for this technique.   Follow the link to purchase one for yourself. 


 I stamped the leave images onto craft cardstock then stamped over a few with embossing ink and applied the Sticky embossing powder ( like liquid glue when heated ) 

 

 

then I applied the foil sheets in three different metallic colors. These foil colors are really pretty, the photo does not do them justice.

 

I fussy cut a few extra leaves after they were dry and adhered them to my card with 3D foam squares to add some dimension.

 This is my finished card. I added a cream color photo mat to the Kraft card stock.  I really love this technique and plan on foiling more in the future.

 Thanks for stopping by today.  Be sure to view Tim’s video to see his handy work.   Carrie for ThecraftyPickle.com

Distress Embossing ink

Distress Inks in Vintage Photo, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey

Sweet Birthday Card

Hey Crafty friends! It’s Stephanie here today to share my latest card using The Crafty Pickle flair.

My sweet friend from high school (yep, we’ve been friends a LONG time!) had a birthday a week ago and I made her this card:

hbd 2u card

It’s a pretty simple card, using scrap papers from  my stash, some rumpled ribbon, foam alphas and this very cute elephant flair button! She adores elephants and when I first saw this button, she came to mind!

Isn’t the flair button the cutest?! I just love it and hope she enjoys this sweet card as well.

Thanks for stopping by today! I hope it’s a crafty one for you!

Hi Friends!
It’s Paula here with a few pocket scrapbooking cards and some shaker pockets I made. For the cards I just cut some cardstock to 3×4 and decorated with patterned paper and stamps and then added some sequins from the relish mixes in the shop…so cute!
I also added some of the awesome Disney flair and washi tape in the shop!!cards
For the shaker pocket I used a Simple Stories Photo Flip and added relish mix, a Disney flair and a few Disney punch out shapes. Then I sealed it with double sided tape and put some glitter washi tape on top of that. Easy peasy!
