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! 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!

Thanks for coming by and I hope to see your Critter Cuties! 🙂

Happy Wednesday Crafty Friends! Today is the start of Cricut Cardz Challenge #103! This weeks theme is, “You Take the Cake!”. So head to your craft room and make a Birthday card with a cake or cupcake using any cartridges or colors you’d like.

My card this week is sweet and simple. I used the cupcake from the Simply Charmed cartridge. I embellished the card with a polka dot button, acetate satin ribbon and a Happy Birthday sentiment from The Greeting Farm. I hope you like it.

Sweet and simple!

I think this embellishment is a fun way to incorporate your sentiment and add a pop of color.

 

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I hope you play along with us at CCC. There will be a random winner chosen for a set of awesome CardzTv stamps! Have a great week everyone! 🙂

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.

I just love this card so much.

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.

3 Chi's cuddled up on the couch.

Here's sweet Tiki taking in the view at the park.

Hey Crafty Friends! How is everyone? I’m doing great and hope you all are too! I’m excited to announce that Cricut Cardz Challenge has a new home over at Cardz Tv! So be sure to update your bookmarks.

I’m also really excited to share my Design Team card for Challenge #91! The challenge this week is “Things That Go Bump In The Night!” So get ready to make a Halloween card with the spookiest, scariest image you can find. You can use any carts and colors that you’d like.

I love making Halloween cards so I had a lot of fun with this one! I didn’t have any scary images, so I dressed up the pumpkin card from the Wild Card cart with some stamps. I think it turned out pretty creepy! Let me know what you think.

Now that's one pumpkin I wouldn't want to run into!

Eek! I hope he's not still hungry.

I dusted the bats with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Pearl.

Thank you so much for stopping by today. I can’t wait to see your scary Halloween cards!!!
