Hello! Today I’m sharing with you my DT card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #44. This weeks challenge is to make a Z-Fold card for Halloween. You can use any carts and colors you’d like! This was a fun card to make. I did keep it simple but I think it turned out pretty darn cute.

I used iridescent vellum paper to cut the ghost. I cut him at 4 inches using my Paper Doll Dress Up cart. To cut the word BOO, I used SCAL. I used my Creative Memories wavy cutter to cut the top of the card. The edges are stamped with a spider web stamp from Inkadinkado and embossed with iridescent ice from Stampin Up. The pattern paper is from Recollections and Target. Both of these papers are from last years Halloween collections. The ghost and pumpkin on the patterned paper are popped up using pop-dots. The orange cardstock on the inside of the card has been distressed using Tim Holtz’s paper distresser and inked with pigment inks. Stamping on the inside of the card is also from Inkadinkado. To complete the card I added white stitching around the ghost and the lettering.

I hope you can join in on the fun at CCC! We can’t wait to see your cards! Have a wonderful week and thanks again for stopping by.

I also entered this card into challenges at Stamp, Scrap & Doodle Saturdays and Fantabulous Cricut. Both challenges required us to use real or faux stitching. Check out all of these challenge sites they are each a lot of fun!

Here’s the Father’s Day card I made for my Dad. He loves to fish so I knew this would be perfect. I used my Everyday Paper Dolls cricut cart to cut out all the elements. I cut the paper doll & his accessories at 4 inches. His face is stamped with Peachy Keen stamps. I used Fiskars Embossing plates to add texture to his clothes and fishing bag. The fish on the pole is a sticker from Mrs. Grossman.

I entered this card into the Cricut Cardz Challenge #27, The Shabby Tea Room challenge #13 and My Sheri Crafts challenge #9. Each challenge required participants to make a Father’s Day card.

Thank you for checking out my card and leaving such sweet comments. I really appreciate them! 🙂

Happy Father's Day!

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!

Here’s my Hot Stuff Dino card!!

Getting the heart to cut like that was an accident. Because I put the patterned paper on the Cricut cutting mat the wrong way. But it gave the heart a fun look so I had to use it! 🙂 The paper already had scallop edges. But you could easily duplicate this look by cutting part the heart with a scallop scissor or using a scallop punch.

This Valentine card was made using the following products:

Large heart was cut using the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge Large heart patterned paper – Target Dollar Bin, 5 x7 paper Dino stamp – Inkadinkado Dino was colored using watercolor pencils Sentiment (I’m Yours, Be My Valentine) – Inkadinkado Ribbon – Martha Stewart Small heart punch – Marvy Uchida Iridescent Ice embossing powder – On wings & around heart Clear Embossing powder – On small heart in Dino’s hands Faux stitching – White Gelly Roll pen.

Card Front - Hot Stuff Dino

Here’s a really fun and silly card I made using stamps from Sassafras Lass, Life at the Pole. This card game made me giggle as I was making it. 😛

-The gingerbread man is embossed with clear embossing powder. The gift in his hand is a rub-on from the Target dollar spot.
-I punched the snowflakes out of paper that was embossed with Stampin’ Up’s iridescent ice.
-The sign pole is made from the candy cane stamp that is also in Life at the Pole. I hand wrote the “Naughty or Nice” sign.
-To make the snow, I ripped white cardstock then embossed it with iridescent ice. To finish the card, I inked the edges with blue pigment ink.

Have you been good this year? 😉

Naughty or Nice?


Lil' Gingerbread Man

Hand written sign and candy cane stamp pole.
