Crafty Cardz Challenge #125 “Critter Cuties”
Make a Valentine card with a critter

You can check out my card below. I decided to make a shape card using my Gypsy and the Create a Critter cartridge. The stamped sentiment is from the Pink By Design, Be Mine set.

I used rhinestones, pink chalk & polka dot embossing to embellish my adorable card. This card is just under 4 inches tall.

You could say no to that sweet face?

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m excited to share my DT card with you today. I made this for Cricut Cardz Challenge #114. The theme this week is “Critter Cuties”. Make a card using a “critter” (dog, cat, cow, chicken, duck, horse, etc.) from any cartridge(s), and using any colors or theme you’d like.

I made this kids birthday card using the Create A Critter cartridge. I cut the dog, party hat and the balloon out using CAC. For extra fun I added fringe, glitter and a rhinestone to the party hat. I stamped on the balloon using a dollar stamp and then tied it with thread to the dogs tail. Then I popped all three up on foam adhesive. To add interest to the plain card base I used a strip of patterned paper and stamped the birthday sentiment. Last but not least, I added Crystal Effects to give him a little wet nose! I hope you like this card and be sure to join us at CardzTv!

I love this little doggie! He's so happy and cute!

Good Morning Crafty Friends! It’s August 1st and the start of a new Cricut Cardz Challenge! The theme for Challenge #113 is “School’s Cool!”. Make a card for Back to School using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

I decided to keep my card clean and simple for this challenge. The apple is from the Create a Critter cartridge. It’s stamped using VersaMark and an ABC border stamp. I hand cut the stem from kraft paper and inked it with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. Then I tied a piece of green cord to it and popped it up on foam tape. The border and apple are stamped using the HamptonArt Border Number stamp set.

Reading, Writing and Arithmetic!

I hope you like this card and come join us at CardzTv for this Back To School challenge!

Good afternoon Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a good day. I apologize for getting my post up so late. My Chihuahua Bunny has not been well so I wasn’t able to work on my post. She’s fighting a liver infection so I’ve been giving her meds and keeping a close eye one her. We are really hoping and praying that she pulls through. She’s a fighter and a spunky little girl so we are keeping positive.

I do want to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #107. The theme this week is “There’s no other, like my Mother”. Make a Mother’s Day card using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

I hope you like my card. I used Create a Critter to cut out the flowers and Plantin Schoolbook to make the frame. The flowers are sprayed with perfect pearl mist and embellished with buttons.

This card turned out just how I wanted it to. Clean, Simple and Happy!

Six happy little buttons, tied five different ways!

 

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my card. Have a wonderful day!

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I’d like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #93.

This weeks theme is “Think Pink“. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. To help promote this worthy cause, make a card for a friend or a loved one for Breast Cancer Awareness month. It can be a reminder card for self-exams and mammograms, a card congratulating a breast cancer survivor, or a card of encouragement for someone currently going through the trauma of breast cancer. Use any cartridges you’d like and use Pink as your primary color. Make sure you give your card to a friend or loved one!

Lace, gems and some dry embossing was the perfect way to dress up this diecut!

 

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you join us for this weeks challenge at CardzTv! Have a wonderful week.
