Valentine's sweet treat

Happy Valentine's Day!!! I thought I'd post this before Saturday and before I forget to post it.
I used Sizzix "sweet treat" die from the Life Made Simple line.
This was the first time I used Doodlebug's solid red card stock to make a box. I must say, it really is good card stock for making boxes with creases. Plus it matches all their paper.
The size of the bag is perfect for small treats. I put a Ghirardelli chocolate and 2 tea bags in it.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! Sorry this post is so short. Have a great holiday weekend!!!

Just Hatched Valentine Card

Valentine's Day is a week away so I thought I'd make another card using this new Sizzix die. It's from the Life Made Simple line called "tri shutter card". When you fold it up, it fits in a Project Life pocket page - 3x4 size. I used Mama Elephant's, "just hatched" clear stamp set with matching dies.
I think it's an Easter set from last year but it is such a cute set. I couldn't resist.
I love Memento Luxe ink. I used Lady Bug to stamp the sentiments. The color is so rich.
And I posted it on Instagram and Mama Elephant reposted it. I was so excited!!! Lol! If you're on Instagram, please follow me @ccmiyashiro.
Thanks for coming back and reading my posts! Have a great week!!!

Valentine's Day wheel card

Hi, I'm back again!!! Before I forget, Happy Valentine's Day! Just in case I don't make it back here in time. I finally had a chance to play with this wheel card die from Sizzix. So, you spin the round scallop wheel to see the different pictures. Such a cute idea! I did a video on it but for some reason, I was having a hard time posting the video. 
I used Mama Elephant's clear stamp set - Purrfect Pair along with the matching dies to cut them out. 
Along with the Sizzix matching embellishment set for the wheel card die.
I used Memento Luxe Love Letter to stamp the sentiment. So far, this is one of the nicest red pigment ink that i have come across.
And Wink of Stella clear over all the images in the wheel. It's so hard to see the glitter.
Thanks for stopping by here today!!! Have a great weekend!!!

Season's Greetings

Hi I'm back again! I'm really into using gold mirror card stock these days. My husband ordered a bunch of Avery Elle's "season's greetings" dies and he wanted me to make a sample for him using the die. It's a pretty font and I like that the words are all connected. 
I had a bunch of stamped embossed cards lying around so I decided to use it for the card base. I finally got to use the gold sheer shimmer spritz from Imagine Crafts. It is so pretty and a nice shade of gold. I sprayed it on the card base. You have to see it in real life.
The sheer sequins is from Pretty Pink Posh and the gold sequins is from Doodlebug Designs. The stitched frame is Mama Elephant.
Hope your weekend is going well! I am trying to recover from a bad sinus infection that I got earlier this week. Thanks for stopping by!!!

Purrfect together

Hi everyone!!! I thought I had posted this card but I guess I didn't. The stamp set is called "purrfect pair" by Mama Elephant. And I used the matching dies to cut the kitties out. I have never made a black card before but I wanted to use gold embossing powder for the sentiment and it just seemed to go well together. Reminds me of McKinley high school colors. Lol! I must say that the Mama Elephant clear stamps stamp very well. 
I forgot to take a photo of my Christmas card swap with the stamp club ladies so I had to take this one  that I had given to one of the ladies. Our theme was baby shaker cards. Everyone did such a great job on their shaker cards. I didn't get a chance to take photos of the cards. I used Dandelion Designs baby girl stamp set. Word sentiment is from Mama Elephant.
Can you see Olaf peeking out from behind the top of the card? It was a cute pillow box favor. I didn't even know what that character was but found out that it is real popular with the little kids. So clever, it was made with punches.
Thanks for stopping by today!!! I have so much to catch up on. Haven't made any Christmas cards yet or bought any Christmas presents. So much to do!
Have a great weekend!!!

Let's roll

Ok, it has been a month since I last posted. I got my hands on a new die set from MFT Dienamics - gift card grooves (I think that's the name) and made a gift card holder using one of the dies. There are 4 dies in the set and you can make your gift card holder 4 different ways.
I used Lawn Fawn's "let's roll" stamp set since I had extra pieces lying on my craft table. In fact, everything I used was scraps. Lol! I cut the holder at 3" x 12" and scored at 3 1/4" and 7 1/2". That's it. Very easy to make!
My husband has a new line in his store called Pretty Pink Posh and her sequins are the best I've seen so far. I used the clear 4mm on the stamped flowers in the background. If you click on the photo you can see it better. I also used clear wink of stella on the sushi.
Here's what one of the dies looks like.
I really haven't had much time lately to work on any projects. It's the busiest time of the year at work. I'm kind of dreading next week Friday because we have to go to our stores and take down Thanksgiving and put up New Years.
Well, thanks for checking in and staying with me here on the blog. Hope you have a great Thanksgiving Day!!!

Christmas sample cards

Playing catch up here. I have other cards that I haven't posted yet but I will soon. First up is a water globe shaker card. I used Taylored Expressions stamp and die to make the water globe. The stamp is called winter penguin from Lawn Fawn. The sequins is Doodlebug Designs.
This 2nd card is a side step card from Sizzix. I love how easy it is to use this die to cut the card. I tried cutting it out by hand before and could never get the cut parts even. The stamp is from Dandelion Designs called teeny weeny Christmas. And the words are from the new tag set from Sizzix.
This last project is a new die from Sizzix called notepad holder die by Brenda Walton. It is made for post-it notes and fits perfectly in it.
I used the winter penguin stamp from Lawn Fawn again. I actually have a bunch that I stamped because these are all the mistake ones. Lol! Do you have those too? I waste so much copic paper when I make mistakes.
Here's a side view so you can see the post-it note pad. The little snowflake stamp is so cute and comes with the penguin stamp.
Well, today was pretty much one of those stay at home days for me since its been raining from tropical storm Ana. At least it cooled down because it's been so hot and muggy!!!
Thanks for checking back here. I'm not sure if anyone reads my blog anymore. I've been posting more on Facebook and Instagram.
Have a great weekend!!!
