Happy Easter bunny card


Good afternoon. Today I wanted to show you a card that I made using my Gyspy to weld the card together using Doodlecharms cartridge. Super simple card that I think I am going to give to my daughter for Easter this year. I inked the edges using Distress Ink in Pumice Stone, put some little flowers to make it look like a girly bunny with barrettes in her hair, then used some googlie eyes, drew some eyelashes & whiskers and used some chalk for the cheeks & ears.


I am entering this card in the Throwback Thursday Challenge over at My Creative Time.


MATERIALS:
  • Distress Ink - Pumice Stone
  • Cricut & Gypsy - Doodlecharms cartridge

You're the Best

Here is a card that I made using my Imagine and the sketch for the challenge at My Creative Time. I thought I would keep this real simple and easy. I printed the polka dot paper at 4 inches and used one of the stock images that come on the imagine. I also cut the yellow & green polka dot paper at 4 inches and then trimmed it down to fit. I used my Sew Easy stitcher around the edges instead of using a punch, then I wrapped some sheer ribbon and pop dotted the flower on the ribbon.

Ooh la la!

This bag was made using my Imagine & the Imgine More Cards cartridge. I wanted to make something other than a card or layout and I wanted to use one of the 3D projects that come on this cartridge. I used some sheer ribbon to wrap around it to give it a little girly feel and then used some dimensional stickers to give it a little bling. I hope you like my project. Thanks for stopping by.

Thank you so much!

Here is a thank you card that I made using some Echo Park paper and matching element stickers. I used my gypsy to weld the base of the card together using Just Because Cards. The base of the card was cut at 4x4, the next layer at 3.25, and then I used some pop dots to give the stickers dimension. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Father's Day shirt & tie

Here is a Father's Day card I made for my father in law. I wanted to use my PKS faces because frankly it has been a while. I used my gypsy to weld the base of the card together using the shadow feature of the shirt, then made the shit and tie. I used the hide feature on my gypsy to hide the face that usually cuts out on the tie, then stamped the cute little PKS face from Happy Lashes and colored in the cheeks with a little chalk. I put it all together after inking all the edges using Distress Ink in Vintage Paper. Thanks for stopping by. I hope this card inspires you.

Sham-rockin day


I know it's a day early but Happy St Patrick's Day! I hope you don't forget to wear green or you will get pinched. haha

For this card I wanted to join in the fun over at My Pink Stamper surprise blog hop.

I used my Gypsy to weld the hat image that I got from A Child's Year to make the card base, then copied another one and cut it in the Shamrock paper to cover the part of the card that is welded together.  I cut the shamrocks at 2.88 on my Gypsy, for the sentiment I used my Curly Label die from My Creative Time and then stamped the sentiment on a white piece of paper and trimmed around it then inked the edges. I used pop dots on the sentiment and the shamrocks to give them some dimension.  I thought the card needed a little something so I cut a black piece of ribbon to make it look like part of the hat.

Thanks for stopping by I hope you all have a wonderful St Patty's Day! 




MATERIALS:
  • Recollections paper - Shamrocks
  • My Creative Time - Curly Label die & I Believe in Leprechauns
  • Cricut cartridge - Celebrate With Flourish & A Child's Year

March Stack-a-holic Template Challenge


Here is the layout that I made for the DCWV March Stack-a-holic Template Challenge


For this challenge you have to follow the sketch above and also use DCWV paper. Since I have tons of DCWV stacks I love doing these challenges. I wanted to make a page with pictures of my husband and I. I printed up some pictures, used a punch by Martha Strewart because I thought it matched the checkered paper behind the pictures. I used my XL Label Die from My Creative Time to cut out the tag so that I can do some journaling, the heart I cut out from one of the pages in the Immortal Stack, and the sentiment is from Love Letters by Recollections.


I hope you like what I can up with. I am thinking I might add a little bling to it or something. Its not flashy enough for me. Thanks for stopping by.

 

Materials:
  • My Creative Time - XL Label Die
  • Distress Ink - Walnut Stain & Black Soot
  • Martha Stewart punch
  • DCWV - Immortal Love Stack & Glitter Stack
  • Recollections - Love Letters stack (sentiment)

Cards for Men Challenge 5 - Sketch


Here is the stamped Humphrey image before I colored it. I wanted to show you how I stamped it onto Papertrey Ink white cardstock.


Here is the image after I colored it all in using my Spectrum Noir markers. I have been practicing my coloring with these markers. I am not a real good colorer so I have been using the same colors that are on the cover of all the stamps.



This card was made for the challenge over at Cards for Men Challenge 5 - sketch.


The card base is a 5x5 and the paper I used was My Mind's Eye On The Bright Side 2 6x6 paper pad. I cut out the paper to follow the sketch and this is what I came up with. I used my iRock to give it a little male bling. haha.

Monday Madness "Imagine" Challenge - Episode 324

I am so excited to dust off my Imagine and put it to work. Emma at My Creative Time is starting a new Monday Madness "Imagine" Challenge which is great news because I am sure like other Imagine owners you some times forget about the Imagine so this is a great opportunity to get her out and put her to good use. For this challenge you had to use your Imagine or pattered paper if you do not own an Imagine and the colors teal, red, & pink.


Now on to my card. For the card base I used plain white cardstock, inked the edges with Distress Ink in Pumice Stone, adhered the paper to the card base and used pop dots on the image and then glossy accents on the eyes and the coffee inside the cup. I try not to use glossy accents on any of the imagine projects because I have noticed that sometimes the ink smudges.



For the sentiment I used my stitched oval die and the sentiment is from More Gift Card Sentiments both are from My Creative Time. I stamped the sentiment on a piece of white cardstock then cut around it, cut the shape on the end (sorry I have no clue what the name if that is, I am going with pennant maybe haha), then inked the edges using Pumice Stone, punched a hole, used a blingy brad, and then used pop dots to adhere it to the card. I hope you like it because I do and I am not sure if this card is going to be given to anyone cause I am thinking I might want to keep it for myself.

Fetch A Sketch Challenge 19 & Monday Challenge #47


I wanted to make a card for a man/boy because usually most of the cards I make are girly. I made this card for two challenges and one is a sketch. So I cut  the squares using my 1.5 inch square paper punch then used my corner rounder (one of my favorite tools), and then inked the edges using Distress Ink in Spiced Marmalade. The paper I used was a 6x6 paper pad from Fancy Pants called Summer's End.



 I also used this paper to cut my rooster out using my Gypsy and Just Because Cards cartridge. I think he is sized at just under 4 inches. I inked him up just a little using the Spiced Marmalade again and then I tied the brown ribbon around the card and adhered everything to the card base. I used my Teeny Tag Greetings & dies from My Creative Time and then popped up the tag using pop dots.




I am entering this card into the Fetch A Sketch Challenge 19
and

For the inside of my card I cut out a green square,  used my Stitched Oval Die and the sentiment using my This and That stamp set all from My Creative Time.
