Crafty Cardz Challenge #125 “Critter Cuties”
Make a Valentine card with a critter

You can check out my card below. I decided to make a shape card using my Gypsy and the Create a Critter cartridge. The stamped sentiment is from the Pink By Design, Be Mine set.

I used rhinestones, pink chalk & polka dot embossing to embellish my adorable card. This card is just under 4 inches tall.

You could say no to that sweet face?

Hi Crafty Friends! Are you ready for the next Cricut Cardz Challenge? I hope so, because it starts now!

Challenge #120: “Attitude of Gratitude!” is the theme this week. Make a card for Thanksgiving using any cartridge(s) and colors you’d like.

For my card, I made a shape card using the sweet little squirrel from the Give A Hoot cartridge. I think she tuned out darling.

She is just the sweetest!

To embellishment the card, I sponged the darker brown pieces with brown inks, embossed them with the Swiss Dots embossing folder and popped them up on pop-dots. Lastly I gave her a twine bow and an acorn with a handwritten sentiment on it.

I love making shape cards with my Gypsy and Cricut. If you have never made one, be sure to give it a try. They are so fun and always a hit!

Thank you so much for stopping by today! Please join us at Cardz Tv for this fun Thanksgiving challenge!

Hi Crafty Friends! I hope everyone is doing great and ready for a new Cricut Cardz Challenge! For Challenge #118, “Anything Goes!” Use your Cricut to make a card, layout or craft project using any cartridge(s), any theme and any colors you’d like. Super easy and super fun!

For my design team card I decided to make a New Baby card. One of my best friends had a baby girl recently so I made a couple different baby cards. I think this card is really sweet and of course the Peachy Keen face is adorable. I used the Simply Charmed cartridge and patterned papers from Basic Grey and DCWV.

I added dry embossing, gems, pearls, ribbon & faux stitching for sweet embellishments.

Thanks for checking out my card and leaving me a comment.  Hope to you play along with us at Cardz Tv!

Hi Crafty Friends! Today I’d like to share with you my Design Team card for Cricut Cardz Challenge #93.

This weeks theme is “Think Pink“. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. To help promote this worthy cause, make a card for a friend or a loved one for Breast Cancer Awareness month. It can be a reminder card for self-exams and mammograms, a card congratulating a breast cancer survivor, or a card of encouragement for someone currently going through the trauma of breast cancer. Use any cartridges you’d like and use Pink as your primary color. Make sure you give your card to a friend or loved one!

Lace, gems and some dry embossing was the perfect way to dress up this diecut!

 

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope you join us for this weeks challenge at CardzTv! Have a wonderful week.
