Good afternoon friends! Today I’m sharing my card for the latest Lawn Fawnatics Challenge. Challenge #5 is all about being inpired by the Spring Inspiration Board. When you visit the website you’ll find that the Board is full of fun Spring colors and images.

I was so excited to use my brand new Bicycle Built For You stamp set and coordinating dies for this challenge. I really love how happy and sweet this card is. This stamp and die set is one of the cutest ever made!

I used Copic Markers to color the cute stamped images.

I colored her dress, flag, flowers and basket with my Wink of Stella pen.

Thank you so much for checking out my card. Be sure to head on over to Lawn Fawnatics to join the latest challenge! Have a wonderful day!

Hello and Happy May! Today I’m sharing with you my card for the newest Lawn Fawnatics challenge! The challenge theme this week is Black, White & Bright. I really enjoyed this theme as black and white is one of my favorite color combos.

I used the Donut Worry stamp set and coordinating die to create this card. It’s a super cute mini stamp set that is fun to color and has an adorable sentiment. For this card I tried no-line copic coloring for the first time. I enjoyed this coloring technique and look forward to trying it with watercolor too. I layered my stamped images and the sentiment on to some vellum. This really helps them be the focus when placed on a distracting background. I love the pop of pink and blue and think this little circle card will really brighten someone’s day.

Inside sentiment reads, “We’re here for you.”

Copic Markers used: R20, RV23, B32, B23, E11, E13

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!

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m so excited to share today’s card with you. I made it for Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge. The challenge is to use the Whale from the Create A Critter cartridge and make a play on words for the sentiment. I love puns, especially ones that are animal related. So I had a lot of fun making this card. If you would like to join the challenge go to FaceBook and search “Tacky Tuesday’s Challenge” and join the group.

She's still adorable even when she's sad.

Patterned paper from Me & My Big Ideas. Her little tear and spout are covered with Crystal Effects.

I typed the sentiment on my computer using Kristen ITC at 16 point.

I used my Gypsy to get the frown on my whale. To see a complete tutorial on how to do this click here to watch my YouTube video.

Gypsy image of creating the whale frown.

In the image above I have grouped together two top layers for the whale. For image #1 in red, I hid the mouth. For image #2 in grey, I hid the body, flipper and both eyes. Next I rotated the image so it was upside down and then aligned it’s mouth where image #1’s mouth was. Then I welded them together.  When you press the eyeball key to preview your cut, you will see the image below.

Hi Crafty Friends! I’m a wee bit late getting this post up. I celebrated my birthday on the 18th and amongst my fun day I forgot to post my card. I apologize for that. So without further delay here is my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #58. This weeks challenge is to make a card with a Snowman using any cartridges and colors you’d like. Super easy and snow much fun!

To cut the Snowpeople, I used my new Winter Woodland cart that I won in a blog hop last month from Courts Crafts! The hearts are cut using Gypsy Wanderings. The patterned paper is from DCWV Christmas Combo Stack. I applied Broken China distress ink around the edges of both the patterned paper and the card base. I hand drew their little faces, cut their noses from orange patterned paper, added pink chalk to their cheeks and cut fringe for her scarf.


I love you 'snow' much!


I think they are so cute together!


I hope you can join us this week at CCC! I can’t wait wait to see your Snowmen Cards! Thank you for your comments and support! Have a fabulous week! 🙂
