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!

Good afternoon Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is having a good day. I apologize for getting my post up so late. My Chihuahua Bunny has not been well so I wasn’t able to work on my post. She’s fighting a liver infection so I’ve been giving her meds and keeping a close eye one her. We are really hoping and praying that she pulls through. She’s a fighter and a spunky little girl so we are keeping positive.

I do want to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #107. The theme this week is “There’s no other, like my Mother”. Make a Mother’s Day card using any cartridge(s) and using any colors you’d like.

I hope you like my card. I used Create a Critter to cut out the flowers and Plantin Schoolbook to make the frame. The flowers are sprayed with perfect pearl mist and embellished with buttons.

This card turned out just how I wanted it to. Clean, Simple and Happy!

Six happy little buttons, tied five different ways!

 

Thank you so much for coming by and checking out my card. Have a wonderful day!

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!!!

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I am sharing with you a special tag I made for my boyfriend’s sister. On January 20th she turned 18 and I wanted to add a special handmade item to her gift. She want’s to go to Paris someday so I knew I wanted to use my Eiffel Tower stamp. When I checked Angelica and Erin‘s Music Mondays challenge it instantly gave me the inspiration I needed to make her tag. The inspiring song this week is, Golden by Jill Scott. Check out their challenge, it’s a lot of fun to play along!

Elizabeth is a such as blessing to know and she is such a sweetheart. I’m hoping this year is a golden one for her. It will definitely be a big year, as she will graduate high school and then be a freshman at the University of Oregon in the Fall. I’m wishing her the absolute best! Live life like it’s Golden!!!

 

The Eiffel Tower and golden butterflies look beautiful together. Entire tag is distressed with Tea Dye and Vintage Photo.

 

The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch. To distress the edges of the tag I used my Tim Hotlz distressing tool. I also added a magnet to the back of the tag.

 

Eiffel Tower stamp from Inkadinkado. Pearls are from Recollections and colored with Copic E33 for an antiqued look.

 

I dusted the entire tag with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold. Then I painted the edges with Perfect Gold and a bit of water. The script stamp is from Tim Holtz.

 

I almost forgot to mention, she as well as her guests really loved the tag and thought it was very beautiful. Thank you so much for checking out my tag! To see a complete recipe check out my YouTube channel.

Thanks Angelica and Erin for a fun challenge, I’m looking forward to the next one!

Good morning! I hope everyone is having a good week. Today is the start of another Cricut Cardz Challenge! This weeks challenge is to make a Christmas card using the card feature of any cartridge and using any colors you’d like. Super easy and a great way to add another card to your holiday stash. I hope you’ll join us for Challenge #50!

Happy Holiday's

To make my card I used the card feature on the Smiley Card cartridge. It was the perfect shape to make my wreath. The wreath is made using my Martha Stewart oak leaf punch and some red gems. The leaves are lightly dusted with Perfect Pearls in Perfect Gold. Then a red bow was added for that perfect festive touch. I inked the edges of the card front with gold pigment ink. I stamped the sentiment (Hero Arts, Owl Christmas) on dark green paper with Versamark and embossed it with white embossing powder. I adhered that to the inside of the card making sure my sentiment lined up in the center of the wreath. To finish off the card I added three red gems under the sentiment.

I hope you like my card and that it gives you inspiration to join us for this weeks challenge. Thank you for checking out my card and leaving me such nice comments. I appreciate it so much.

Hi! How is everyone? I’m doing great! I can’t believe October is coming to a close. It feels like it went by so fast! The cold and rainy weather is definitely here. But it’s perfect crafting weather! So today I have for you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #48! This weeks challenge is to make a card for Thanksgiving using the card feature. You can use any cartridge and colors you like. Super easy and fun! I hope you join us this week.

I decided to make a Thanksgiving Dinner invitation using the Doodlecharms cartridge and paper from DCWV Indian Summer Fall Stack. (Which wasn’t a hard choice since out of all the carts I own this is the only cart with the card feature. Lol.) I used my new Gypsy to design this card so I was able to hide some of the cut lines on the leaves. This is a flat postcard style card that measures 4.25 x 5.50. First I inked the card base, printed wording and the leaves with distress inks in Tea Dye and Vintage Photo. Then I attached the printed wording to my invite. Next I crumpled the leaves, attached them to my card base and dusted perfect pearls in perfect pearl and gold onto them. The wording was typed on my computer and printed using French Script MT font at 22 point. To finish the card I used two brown eyelets at the bottom.

If you’re hosting Thanksgiving dinner this year maybe this will inspire your invitations or perhaps it will inspire you to make a Fall card. I hope you like my invitation. Have a wonderful week and Happy Halloween!!!

A light dusting of Perfect Pearls gives the leaves a pretty shimmer.
