Happy December Crafty Friends! Can you believe that Christmas is just around the corner?! Which means, I’m already behind on making my Christmas cards. But Cricut Cardz Challenge has me making my first one!

Challenge#122: “Tis the season!” Make a Christmas or Hanukkah card using the card feature from any cartridge, and using any colors you’d like.

Faux stitching, polka dot vellum, gold perfect pearls and a festive sentiment dress this card up perfectly.

For my card I used the Winter Woodland cartridge. I added some little touches to dress up this otherwise simple card.

Thanks so much for your comments and coming by my blog. Please stop by Cardz Tv and join us for our last Challenge of 2012! Happy Holidays!

Happy November Crafty Friends! Can you believe the holiday season is upon us? I can’t! Although I do love making holiday cards! The card I’m sharing with you today is my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #95. The theme this week is, “We’re So Thankful”! Make a card for Thanksgiving using the card feature from any cartridge(s) you’d like and using any colors you’d like.

I used Smiley Cards for my card base, Everyday Paper Dolls and Paper Doll dress Up for the leaves and pumpkin.

Tonight’s card is a Christmas card! I joined the fun Christmas in July themed challenges over at Cricut Cardz, The Shabby Tea Room #18, Fussy and Fancy #14 and Simple Doodles #21! I had a great time bringing out some Christmas papers and stamps.

I used my Doodle Charms cart, Inkadinkado and Studio g stamps, red glitter and a white gel pen to make this cute Christmas card. The cards measures 4.25 x 5.5. The patterned paper is from the DCWV Flower Shower Stack.

Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my card!

Christmas Puppy Surprise!

I added glitter to strips of red cardstock to make ribbon.

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.

This is a vintage tag and gift box I made for my friend. Both of these items turned out really pretty and she loved them. For the gift box, it was one the store had given me and I covered it with paper and added embellishments. If you would like to watch the video and learn what products I used on these items click here!

I love these hot glue pearls. They are so pretty!

This picture shows off the gold perfect pearls and edge distressing really well.

Today I would like to share with you my St. Patrick’s Day cards and tag.

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.
