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 Morning Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having an excellent week. Today marks the start of Cricut Cardz Challenge #78. This weeks challenge is to make a Wedding Card. You can use any cartridges and colors that you’d like.

This is the first wedding card that I’ve made using my new Sweethearts cartridge. I really love the Bride and Groom and knew I had to use them! I thought the Gate Fold would be perfect for this card. Check out the pictures below and let me know what you think!

 

I love how the Bride and Groom are facing each other. The Gate Fold allows the card to open in the center to reveal the sentiment & handwritten note.

 

I think this is a really adorable Cricut cut. I used my Swiss Dots embossing folder to add some interest to her dress.

 

The sentiment and rings are from BasicGrey

 

Card Recipe:

  • Cartridge – Sweethearts
  • Heart Patterned Paper – Costco
  • Stamps – BasicGrey
  • Copic Markers
  • Flower Jewels – Heidi Swapp
  • CuttleBug Embossing Folder – Swiss Dots
  • Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl – Applied to dress
  • Vellum – Veil (handcut)

 

I hope you liked this card and find it inspiring! Be sure to head on over to CCC and enter your card! You never know you just might be randomly picked to win the monthly prize!

Hello my dear Crafty friends! I haven’t blogged in a while and need to get back on track.  So today I am sharing my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #62! This weeks challenge is to use a cup image from any cartridge. You may also use any colors you’d like.

My card measure 4.5 x 4.5. To make the card I used the Gypsy Wanderings cartridge for the the cup and gold shape. I used the Tags, Bags, Boxes and More cartridge to cut the tag. I used the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder and the Fiskars Hearts Texture Plate to dry emboss. The hearts in the cup are from a Martha Stewart punch. I had fun making my card and think it turned out really playful and cute. I hope you like it!

 

Lots of layers and textures make this card extra fun!

 

Peachy Keen faces really bring the hearts to life!

 

Sentiment is from Hampton Art.

To make this card I used my Cricut and the SCAL software. I entered this card into The Treehouse Thursday Challenge. The challenge this week is, Seeing Dots! It was a perfect chance to use my new Inkadinkado Polka-dots background stamp. I love how this card turned out!! If you would like to know what products I used please check out my youtube video by clicking here.
