Christmas Ride

Hi everyone,
I was down with a bad cold but I'm feeling a bit better so I made this card for the Winter Wonderland Challenge. The theme is to use red and green with boughs of holly.  I am not really sure of this card yet it just seems like somthing is missing or maybe it just needs to be a bigger sizse. I cut it with the cricut at 4.5" sq. I used my gypsy and hid the contour on some of the cuts to get different colors. Thanks for stopping by for a visit, happy creating everyone.

Paper: EK sucess kit sale item ( we all love sales)
Ink: white gel pen, black gel pen, copic markers black and green
Accessories: cricut christmas card cartridge, white satin ribbon

Boo Spider!

Hi everyone,

Isn't this the cutest little spider you have seen? I was browsing the rock princess handbook and came across this little cutie. This was it! When I put my glasses on to get the cuts I needed I had a good laugh b/c it wasn't a spider it is a heart with wings on page 54. Well I decided to go with my original idea and made the spider. The base is cut at 5.5 sq. and used the peachy keen monster face stamps. The boo letters were cut from the micky font cartridge. The white web is cut at 3.25" and inked with black ink spot. the strips of kraft paper was cut at 1" and put into the big shot usng the cuttlebug herring bone embossing folder. Spider was cut 3". I am entering this card into three challenges this week. Stamps R Us challenge is a Halloween theme. Peachy Keen Challenge is to use their sketch and kraft CS. The Pink Stamper challenge is anything goes.

Thanks to everyone who has stopped by to visit me. Leave me a comment so I can come visit you too. Happy creating everyone!

Hey Cupcake!

Hi everyone,

Have you ever had a crafting day and nothing was working right, well today was that day for me. I even finished putting the layers on and attached it to my card upside down. I didn't realize it until it was to late to take it off. so I cut the layer off and added it to another card base. I decided to make an inchy card. They are so much fun to make. DCWV has a paper stack called Sweet stack. The paper is georgous in it. I used the 3/4" sq punch to punch some of the images on one of the papers to layer it with the 7/8" punch.  Pear Tree Designs challenge this week isa  pink theme, so this fits the challenge well. Who doesn't like pink? 

Stamp Set: Scrappy Moms
Paper: SU  whisper white, scallop border trim punch, 3/4"sq  punch, DCWV Sweets stack, white ribbon, MS 7/8" scallop sq punch,

Thanks for stopping by to visit, happy creating everyone!

HoHoHo Santa

Hi Everyone,
ABC Christmas Challenge this week is S for Santa but not red. I decided on the pink and used the copics markers #0,E00,E02,R20,RV11 pinks,YG11,G17,W1. On santas hat I used dazzling diamonds glitter. Around the frame is gold matalic marker. The shimmer paper just seemed to make the card pop a little. Adding the ribbon and pink card base. I am looking at it and thinking I should have added some stitching so If I make any changes I will add the photo on to this post.  I am also entering this card into Aly's Sunday Challenge sparkle and glitter. The sketch is from Sketch Saturday. Thanks for stopping by and visiting me. Happy creating everyone!

Stamp Sets: Inkadinkadoo Christmas Season, Pink Scrapper Winter Fun

....Home is where the heart is...

Hi everyone,

Tuesday Taggers challenge this week is to use a project that features a house. I thought is was a great idea so I just had to join in. Their sponsor this week is the Craft Barn and we are to add a link in our post to them. Raise The Bar challenge is wanting a hut on your project. Any type of home.  I used the cut for the light house from wall decor and more cartridge and cut it at 4". It had 2 layer to the cut but I added some paper behind the windows to make it pop. I used an embossing folder on the lighthouse, hoping to make it look like it had bricks.  The cloud was cut by hand and I should have made it a bit longer to go behind the lighthouse, but I didn't think if it untill I had finished the card. The seagulls were cut at 1" using life is a beach cartridge. I didn't have a sentiment I wanted so I used the computer and typed it up. I used the big shot with the top note die for the frame and  added white stitching around the frame to finish it off. 

Paper: DCWV autumn splendor DSP, SU close to cocoa, whisper white, crushed currey, garden green
Ink: white gel pen
Accessories: big shot top note die, embossing folder, computer sentiment, life is a beach , wall decor and more cricut cartridge's.

Thank you all for stopping by and visiting. Happy Creating everyone.
