Hello Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a great week. My week is going good and I’m looking forward to the weekend! St. Patrick’s Day is coming up and if you haven’t made a card, now is the perfect time. Crafty Cardz Challenge has a fun themed challenge just for you.

Challenge#127: “ERIN GO BRAUGH”
Make a card for St. Patrick’s Day using GREEN, BLACK and WHITE ONLY!

My 4×4 St. Paddy Day card is below. I used the leprechaun hat from Paper Doll Dress Up and the clover from Give A Hoot. I stamped the background with a Studio g stamp, embossed the hat, glittered the black trim, inked/chalked around each element and even though it doesn’t show the hat was dusted in green Pearl X powder and the clover is painted with green pearlized paint.

This is one time I wish I had an Action Wobble. Oh well, pop dots did the job!

I think the argyle embossing really adds a nice touch to the hat.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I can’t wait to see what you create for this challenge. Happy St. Patrick’s Day and be sure to enter this fun challenge at CardzTv!

Hi Crafty Friends! Are you ready for the next Cricut Cardz Challenge? I hope so, because it starts now!

Challenge #120: “Attitude of Gratitude!” is the theme this week. Make a card for Thanksgiving using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

For my card, I made a shape card using the sweet little squirrel from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I think she tuned out darling.

She is just the sweetest!

To embellishment the card, I sponged the darker brown pieces with brown inks, embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped them up on pop-dots. Lastly I gave her a twine bow and an acorn with a handwritten sentiment on it.

I love making shape cards with my Gypsy and Cricut. If you have never made one, be sure to give it a try. They are so fun and always a hit!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please join us at Cardz Tv for this fun Thanksgiving challenge!

Good afternoon Crafty Friends! I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Today I’d like to share with you my DT card for Cricut Card Challenge #116. The challenge is to make a Halloween card using the card feature from any cartridge and using any colors you’d like.

For my card I used the Wild Card cartridge. I think I’ll add a couple more embellishments because he doesn’t feel quite finished. If I do, I’ll be sure to post an updated photo. I just love making Halloween cards and hope you like mine!

Just a cute little monster going Trick or Treating as a human.

I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder in Bubbles to add texture to the lil' monster.

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. I look forward to seeing your Creature Feature cards at CardzTv!
