Happy New Year Crafty Friends! Here we are as January is about to pass us by. I hope everyone had a good month. I had a great month! January 18th was my birthday and Kris & I celebrated with a nice dinner out. I also received some lovely gifts. One of the gifts from my boyfriend was Project Life page protectors. I’m really excited to be doing this project and will be sure to share some pages with you all.

Now let’s get ready to make some Valentine’s Day cards! Check out my card below, I used the Sweethearts cartridge.

Good morning! I hope you’re having a good week. I’ve had a busy one making Christmas cards that were requested by family members. As soon as I finish those I can start making my own to send out. I’m sure most of you have been busy with the same. But I’m having a great time in my craft room amongst my patterned papers, glitter, stamps and Cricut!

Today I would like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #54. The challenge this week is to make a circle shaped Christmas card using any cartridges you would like but no red or green.

 

Nothing say's winter like a Giant glittery snowflake!

 

I think this snowflake is gorgeous.

 

I’m really happy with how my card turned out. I think it’s really pretty and wintery. I’ve been doing a lot of emboss resist lately and loving it! I hope you can join us over at Cricut Cardz Challenge this week! I would love to see what you come up with for this challenge. Thank you so much for stopping by and I appreciate your comments.

Tonight’s card is another Christmas card. I joined in the challenges over at CardzTv and Drunken Stampers. CardTv asked us make a card with a Christmas tree on it and Drunken Stampers asked for a Christmas card. This is what I came up with.

The swirl stamp is from Autumn Leaves, the tree is a Cuttlebug die and the gems are from Joann’s. I dusted gold perfect pearls over the tree and the edge of the card front. Then I finished the card by tying a bow on the tree trunk.

Thank you for taking the time to come to my blog! Have a wonderful evening! And don’t forget to check out the challenges above!

Love bling on a Christmas Tree!

Embossed swirls and Perfect Pearls!

Today’s card was entered into Paper Cutz Challenge#42 (Use buttons & ribbon, lace or hemp) & Drunken Stampers #17  (Distressed chipboard).

I really love how it turned out. I think this card would be great for the man in your life! The background is stamped with a wood grain stamp and embossed with clear embossing powder. The heart is a chipboard piece colored with a red Copic marker. It had a design that I didn’t like but after two coats of Copic marker it was gone! Then I wrapped hemp cord around it and secured it with a  button. After that I adhered the heart with 1/16 inch pop-dots. One the inside of the card I added a thinner button to accent the future message.

Thanks for taking a look at my card! Have a wonderful weekend!

Love U

I love the textures on the button mixed with the wood grain and hemp cord textures.

The inside of the card has a space for a message with a button accent.

The first three cards feature the same layout but different patterned paper and embossing. These cards are all simple to make and perfect if you’re short on time. The fourth card is made using scraps from the first two cards and stamps from Studio g. The tag is made with a scrap from the first card, deco scissors and stamps from Studio g.

I made this card for my Niece’s 12th Birthday. I really loved making it and had a lot of fun in the process. I wanted to make her something fun and cute and this was the end result! I think it turned out perfect for the occasion. She really loved it and thought it was cool. Below is a list of products I used and pictures. If you would like to see my youtube video of this card, please click here.

Card Front:
Ice cream cone – Everyday paper dolls cricut cartridge. Cut at 6.5 inches.
Cherry – hand cut circle, embossed with UTEE around 4 times
Pink patterned paper – light pink with pink polka-a-dots
Ice Cream – embossed with 5 or so layers of UTEE. While the last layer of utte was hot, I sprinkled small glass beads on it. Then I pressed them into the utte using a scrap piece of paper. This turned out really cute and looked just like sprinkles.
Cone – embossed with Fiskars embossing plate. Inked with Distess Ink in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.
Bee stamp – Inkadinkado
Heart punch – Martha Stewart
100% sweet stamp – Studio g

Inside Card:
Card base – Bazzill Kraft cardstock
Happy Birthday stamp – Studio g
Sweetie stamp – Target Dollar Bin, Valentines collection
Sweetie is colored with a pink glitter gel pen
Edges inked with Tea Dye Distress Ink
White faux stitching

To attach the card front to the card base, I used an eyelet at the top. Then I covered the eyelet with the cherry. I attached the cherry with a glue dot and a 1/16 pop dot.

Looks good enough to eat!

Tiny glass marbles pressed into UTTE and Inkadinkado bee stamp.

Embossed with Fiskars embossing plate and distressed with Tea Dye & Vintage Photo distress inks.

Inside sentiment. The card front and base are attched with an eyelet.
