Good Morning Crafty Friends! Are you ready for Cricut Cardz Challenge #108? The theme is “May Day”, make a card for any occasion using flowers from any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

For my 4 x 5.5 inch card I used the Give A Hoot cartridge. After cutting the tulips out three times, I used Copic markers to color the tulips and the rhinestones. I used my Nestabilities to cut a circle from the center then popped each of the tulips up on pop dots. The sentiment is from Hero Arts, Everyday Greetings.

Happy May Day!

I love to color clear rhinestones with Copics, Bic Mark It's or Sharpies. It's an easy way to get the perfect coordinating color.

Before I go, I wanted to give you an update on Bunny. After being very ill for two weeks she is is finally feeling better. She just finished two of her three medications and has been getting stronger each day. She’s still a bit slow but it’s so nice to see her getting back to her old self. Thanks for your kind words, I really appreciate. 🙂

Thank you for stopping by and checking out my card. I’ll leave you with a cute picture of Bunny napping with her new toy from her Grandma (my Mom).

Bunny Boo & Lambchop.

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I’m excited to share with you two Birthday cards that I made for my niece’s 14th Birthday.

I made the first card for my parents to give to her. I used the Betsy Bluebell stamp set from Penny Black and colored the image with Copic markers. I know the image may seem a bit young for her but it was just so cute. Plus I had just bought the stamp set so I had to use it!

The second card features an awesome stamp set from Stampin Up called Pick a Petal. So many fun things can be done with this set. If you would like more details about the cards just play the videos at the bottom of this post. Now onto the cards!

The patterned paper is from DCWV Sweet Stack & the image is popped up on pop dots.

Here's a close up of my Copic coloring.

The second layer of petals are popped up on pop dots for added dimension & fun!


Thank you so much for stopping by and checking out my cards today! I’ll be back soon to share the cards I made at Craft Night with some awesome ladies!

Happy Summer Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a great summer! It’s been beautiful here in Oregon. I’ve been enjoying my Summer and soaking up some of that sunshine! What are your Summer plans? One thing I know I’m doing is seeing the new Harry Potter! Anyone else?

Today I’d like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #82. The challenge this week is to make a card with Summer Apparel or An Accessory. You can use any cartridges and colors that you’d like. Super easy! I kept my card really simple and used minimal supplies. I also played with my new Nestabilities dies. (Whoa that rhymed! Lol!) I tried embellishing the bikini with rhinestones and then with pearls. But neither of them looked good. So I decided to keep it simple and let the layered scallops and patterned paper do the talking!

I hope you like it and come on over to CCC and join us this week! We can’t wait to see your new Summer cards!

I love all the bright colors and the Yellow Polka Dot Bikini let's everyone know, Summer is here!

The yellow scallop circle and the bikini are popped up on Foam Adhesive & Zots 3D Glue Dots.


Card Recipe:

  • Cartridge – Paper Doll Dress Up
  • Patterned Paper – DCWV Celebration Stack (orange) & Target Dollar Bin (polka dot)
  • Nestabilities Dies – Large Circle and Large Scallop Circle Set
  • Ink – Stampin Up, YoYo Yellow & Orange ColorBox Pigment Ink
  • Scotch Foam Adhesive & Zots 3D Glue Dots
