Create A Critter 2 contest project

This project was made for the contest for the Create A Critter 2 sneak peek contest.
I used the squiral and the tree icon that went with it. I cut the squirral out at 4" and the tree at 3". The sun is cut from Create a Critter at 1". I cuttlebugged the tree and added a little glitter on the leaves, buckle on the hat and the suns checks. I also added some googly eyes on the squirral and used my black gel pen for the trees eyes and mouth. I used my MS loop punch on the trim along the bottom. Everything is layed out on a 6x6 card.
Thanks for stopping by and visting and have a great day!

Wedding Card

I hope everyone had a relaxing and safe long holiday weekend. This project is for the new Cricut FANatic blog that a fellow cricut cirlce member started up since we have lost our beloved cricut circle blog a month ago. This is my very first time to be a designer for a blog other then my own. I think I'm going to have so much fun coming up with something new every month and getting to see what everyone else comes up with.

Today I have made a card to show ya'll. A good friend of ours just got married over the weekend and this is the card I made for them. For the card base I used my Art Philosophy cartridge and used the card on page 37 and cut it out withh the layers at 5.5". I used Echo Park paper from a 6x6 pad for the top layer and then used a few pieces of a darker red under the top layer for the pop of color to go with the dress. For the bottom layer I used a thin sheet of off white. I also added a couple of dimonds for a little bling.
For the dress I used Tie the Knot and the dress is from page 46 and cut it at 3.75". I used a piece of kinda darker red for the bottom layer of the dress and I also wanted to give this card a pop of color and have always thought that red looks very pretty and eleagnt with black and white. For the top layer of the dress I took a card and cut it in half so it would stand out from the other shade of white that I used for the card base using the devine swirls folder. I added some Martha Stewart pearls along the sash and bottom and cuttlebuged the top layer to give it some texture.
The MR. & MRS. I found also on Tie the Knot on page 62. I cut all layers at 1" and added some Martha Stewert crystal glitter to give it that extra sparkle.
Hope you have a wonderful day and can't wait to be back here this time next month with something new to show ya'll!

Weekly Challenge #62: Card Sketch Challenge

The weekly challenge on the cricut circle blog was to make a card using a card sketch using at least 2 cricut cuts. I used Cindy Loo for the deer and the tree and Art Philosophy for the banner. I used brown craft and purple cardstock and then used some Echo Park Springtime paper. I cut the deer out at 3" and the tree at 4" and the banner is cut out at 4.5"(I think lol). I used my corner rounder for the top part of the card and added white ribbon at the bottom part of the card.
Thanks for looking and have a great day! :)

You were suppost to use black, ornage, a shade of green and then 2 diff. shades of blue.

I made this for a challange over on the cricut circle blog. They have a challange where you can make any project that you would like and have to use 2 cricut cuts, use a new cartridge and an older cartridge.
I used Wild Card 2 for the new cartridge. I cut the card and the layers at 4.5". I used Create A Critter for the older cartridge and I cut Just Chillin' out at 1.5". I also tied a little twin around the trees.

I made this for the cricut circle NSD challenge where you had to use 3 diff. pattern papers, the color yellow, a butterfly bird or bug, machine pen or hand stiching and at least 3 cricut cuts.
I used the new cricut cartridge that just came out called Wild Card 2. I cut the bee hive card and the layer for it, the bee and all of his layers and the envolope and liner out at 4.5". I cut the BEE HAPPY out at 2". I also put the little bee on a wobbler and added stiching around the hive and his wings. I also used some yellow stickles around his door and used a black gel pen for his eyes and some black enamel accents for his mouth. This is really a super cute cartridge and so easy to put the cards together.

birthday card using Art Philosophy

I made this a few weeks ago for a friend of mine that had a birthday. This is the first card that I made with this cartridge. I cut the flowers out at 1" 1 1/2" and 2". I think the middle of the card was cut out at either 3 1/5" or 4". I used printed cardstock for the layered background (don't know the name of it but thought it looked pretty with this shade of purple). Spritzed a little glimmer mist on the roses and added some pearls.

A Get Well Easel Card For My Aunt

I have been so busy lately and I've noticed that I hadn't posted on my blog in awhile so I figured I would put this card up that I needed to make for my Aunt that is having a tumor removed from her brain in a couple of weeks.
I used kraft paper as the base, a piece of pink DCWV for the layering and then some printed cardstock that I had found at big lots the other day.
I cut the flower pot from Everyday Pop Up cards at 3.5" cuttlebuged the pot and cut Get Well Soon at 1.5" from Cindy Loo. I added a few pearls along the sides and pop dotted the flower and the base at the bottom and added a little twine around the pot to give it that little extra touch.

A card made for a special little girl using Hello Kitty Greetings

There is a lady on the cricut circle message board that has a friend that has a little girl that is very sick and asked if we could all make a card for her to raise her spirts. Her name just happens to be Trinitie (her nick name is Trin...same one I had in school) so I made this card for her cause I was told she was a girlie girl and what girl don't like Hello Kitty lol. I cut hello kitty out at 4" and TRIN out at 1" to fit the ballons and used some echo park paper that I had bought for valentines day and a little glitter and some black & white ribbon, a few pearls and 2 pink dimonds on the bow to give it that extra bling. I hope she likes it cause I kinda like how it turned out :)
