Hello and thank you for stopping by today. Here is a wooden frame that I covered using some DCWV glitter paper and my Flower Shoppe cartridge to make the flowers.  I am going to add a picture to it of my Grandmother with my kids when they were younger.  I inked the edges of the frame using some chalk ink. I wanted to cover the wood but didn't feel like painting it.  



Materials:
  • Cricut - Flower Shoppe 
  • DCWV - The Glitter Stack
  • pink chalk ink
Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you enjoyed this frame. Don't forget to check out this weeks Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog challenge here.

Cut It Up - Arbor Day


Good morning there. Thanks for coming by today and checking out this card I made using the Animal Antics cartridge. This is a really cute cartridge. I made the trees background using this cartridge. This cartridge has this cool thing on it where you can make I think 5-6 different backgrounds and the layers.  It is really cute. I wanted to add a cute animal. I know that a fox doesn't walk around the forest with a wine bottle but I thought it would be kinda funny.  I cut the layers out using DCWV Gone Wild 12x12 stack.

Good afternoon everyone. Thanks for stopping by today. Here is a card that I made using Nate's ABC's.  I cut the image at 3.5 put all the layers together and used some glossy accents on the water just to make it look kinda wet.  I used some sugar n cream twist that I found in the yarn section of Michael's because I thought it kind of looks like twine. I then stamped and embossed the sentiment. Put some cute chrome pearls on it and voila here is the finished product.

Peachy Keen Stamps and DCWV Stack-a-holic Template Challenge


Good morning everyone. Thanks for stopping by. Here is a baby girl card that I made using the DCWV Baby Girl stack and my Gypsy to design.  Since I am entering this in the DCWV template challenge I had to follow the template and for me it is so much easier to do that on my Gypsy. I inked the edges using distress ink in spun sugar.  The sentiment is from MCT Gift card sentiments. I used some embossing on the face because it is patterned paper and usually you can not see a stamped image on it. I  then used a white gel pen for the whites of the eyes and some glossy accents on the eyes.
