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!

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope you’re ready for a spooky Cricut Cardz Challenge! Challenge #117 is to make an S-fold card for Halloween using any cartridge(s) and any colors you’d like. If you’ve never made an S-Fold card here’s a link to Mary’s cute card and instructions.

It’s been a while since I made an S-Fold card so it was fun to do that fold again. To cut the pumpkin’s I used the Smiley Cards cartridge. The patterned papers are from DCWV. Everything is inked, chalked and popped up on pop dots. Halloween cards are so fun to make and I look forward to posting more in the coming weeks.

Don't say they didn't warn you!

Thanks so much for coming by today and seeing my “spooky” pumpkin card. I am really looking forward to seeing your Halloween S-Fold cards!

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!

Good Morning Crafty Friends! I’m excited to share my Cricut Cardz Challenge Design Team card with you today! I really loved making this card and hope you like it. This is also my first Christmas card of the year! I’m probably getting started a little late compared to most but that’s ok.

We are on Challenge #96. The Theme this week is “Christmas: Say It with S!” Make a card for Christmas using an image that starts with the letter S, using any cartridge(s) and any colors you’d like.

Adding a small personal touch adds so much to this simple & cute card. Our personalized stockings are my favorite part!

 

If you were wondering Bunny, Tiki and Fudge are our Chihuahua’s! Here’s some pics of them hanging out.

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.
