Paper Cutz Challenge Blog: Challenge #118

I'm re-posting this for Challenge #118 on Paper Cutz Challenge's Blog.  
The base of this card is a piece of green Papertrey Ink cardstock cut at 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" and folded in half.  I cut a piece of blue cardstock from The Paper Company's Value Pack at 2 1/2" x 5 1/4" and ran it through my Sizzix with my Cuttlebug Snowflakes A2 embossing folder.  I then used my ATG gun to attach it to the top half of the base of the card.  I used a piece of DCWV paper from their 12 x 12 Glitter Stack paper pack, cut it to 2" x 5 1/4", used a Fiskars' Threading Water boarder punch on it and attached it to the bottom half of the base of the card using my ATG gun.
I used my Cricut Expression with my "Winter Frolic" cartridge and The Paper Company Value Pack cardstock and cut the ornament at 3 1/2".  The hook and the star on it were cut with DCWV white glitter paper from their 12x12 Glitter Stack paper pack.  I attached the ornament to the ca…

Explosion Card Box!!

(Sorry for the blurry pictures, they were taken with my iPhone.)
I had a lot of fun making this one.  I still haven't decided what I'm going to do with it though lol.  I used DCWV's Neutral 12x12 paper pack to make the bases and then decorated them with paper from DCWV's Nana's Kids matstack and their Animal Crackers matstack.  Click here for the link to the video with all the dimensions to make this project.
I used my ATG gun to attach each "box" to the bigger one and also to attach the patterned paper.  On the lid I used my croc-a-dile to punch wholes in it and attached a piece of grosgrain ribbon with star shaped brads to simulate a handle.
There are lots of YouTube videos on different ways to make these and decorate them.  The possibilities are endless!!!!
Happy Crafting!!!!

Yappy Birthday!

I made this card for my nephew's birthday this year.  I figured this was a good fit for him since he loves his dog soooo much!!  His dog is a black lab, but I thought this dog was really cute.
ALL paper with the exception of the polka dot paper is from The Paper Company's Value Packs.  The polka dot paper is from DCWV's Nana's Kids Matstack.
For the base of my card I started with a piece of blue 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" cardstock and folded it in half.  I then cut the polka dotted paper at 4" x 5 1/4" and attached it to the base of the card using my ATG gun.  I then used a puppy paw print stamp from My Pink Stamper's "Even More Punny-licious" stamp set with a Stampin' Up! Classic Basic Black ink pad to add little puppy prints all over the page.  I also used the same stamp pad with another stamp from the same set for the sentiment on the card, "Yappy Birthday".
I cut the puppy, the present and the party hat all at 3 1/2" with my …
