Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge

This was a very simple card. I cut the mummy out using my Gypsy and Paper Doll Dress Up cartridge. I am not sure of the exact measurements but I think it was cut at 3 inches. I traced the coffin card on the back side of the orange cardstock then cut it out and adhered it to the card. I then used vintage photo and inked up the mummy to make him look old & dirty. I used some pop dots and attached him to the card. I then inked the edges of the card and added the DCWV chilling embellishment.

I cut this from another page in the DCWV matstack to add something to the inside of the card. I am entering this card in the the Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge.

My Creative Time Design Team Call...

This was created as my entry for the design team call over at My Creative Time. I originally seen this on Pinterest and thought I really need one of these in my house. I drew a triangle on the canvas then made a paper template and started measuring and rolling the paper. I then painted the canvas red and let it dry. I got out my hot glue gun and started gluing the rolled up paper on the paper template.  After the canvas was all dry I glued the paper tree to the canvas. I stamped the images and colored them. I then hot glued them to the tree and used some glossy accents to make them pop. It was really fun and simple to make. You should try it     :)

For this challenge you had to make a card using an older card that has a "card" feature on it. I chose Just Because Cards because I liked the edges on this one. I wanted to use these K&Company Halloween die cuts. I love the eyes on this one.

This is the inside of the card. I used the cat die cut from the same set and then used a stamp I bought in the dollar section at Michaels. I colored in the little candies with my stampin up pens.

I am entering this card in the Throwback Thursday Challenge - Episode #258

Snow Cutie Christmas

I love Christmas time and I LOVE snowmen. I wanted to start making some Christmas cards so that I can get a head start. :) I also wanted to use up this paper pack that I got from

Happy Holidays Snowman

I used my Gypsy to weld/make a card using the Blackletter cartridge. I cut an a2 sized card, sized the polka dotted paper at the same size to cover up where I welded the two images, and then I sized the green and white striped layer a little smaller (I am not sure of the exact measurements).

I used Doodlecharms to cut the snowman at 3 inches and the snowflakes I think where at 2 inches.  I used pop dots to add dimension to the snowflakes and the snowman. I inked the edges using Distress Ink in worn lipstick, stamped the sentiment and used stickles to color the nose on the snowman and the snowflakes.

  • Cricut cartridges - Blackletter & Doodlecharms
  • Distress Ink - worn lipstick
  • Memento ink - Tuxedo Black
