Anniversary & Valentines cards


Okay - it's been a LONG time since I've posted on here!

First one I used Indie Art for the heart, inked the circle after embossing with swiss dots & scored lines along the left & bottom. Prima flowers & a homemade stickle with "Butterscotch" alcohol inks.

2nd: Image from Aprile's monthly MCPT, Prima flower, stash button. Storybook used for the card base.

October MCPT



I love this image! I made it for the October MCPT challenge by Aprile! :) So fun!
The only Cricut is the spiderweb from PDDU - then I spritzed it with my homemade glimmer mist :)

Baby Gifts and Matching Cards!!

I am sooo proud of myself on these! I worked my little tush of on them! I wanted cards to match the gift bags, and I did so!

I had the perfect paper to match the stripes - which gave me the idea in the first place!
Elephant & Lion are from Zooballoo
ions mane is actually recycled from a magazine that had a sample of the "fleece sweater." I cut it out about a week ago & didn't have a use for it then, and I am so glad that I did cut it out!

Thanksgiving Cards

I bought this beautiful paper pack for Thanksgiving from Me & My Big Ideas. I absolutely love it. I only made 3 Thanksgiving cards so far, but plan to make more, especially since I just found some $1 Thanksgiving ribbon at Target :)


This one is the turkey from Doodlecharms, but the background is what I'm proud of :)
I used a Thanksgiving stamp set from Ms and watermarked it. But the actual paper is recycled from an Eddie Bauer bag! How cool?



I thought this leaf stamp was so beautiful! I might be using it for more Thanksgiving cards!

Christmas Cards

I've made more Christmas cards for a swap..here they are!

This first set, I made after seeing one of the videos from the Pink Stamper (see video here)
I used the floral fantasy embossing folder & inked the bottom half with white ink.
Ribbon from my stash across the middle.
The flower is from Joys of the Season.
I made a small stencil with the flower cut & used it with glimmer mist & made a small shimmery flower as a 'shadow'
I love that technique!


The trees here are from doodlecharms!

Carrie's Birthday Card



I made this birthday card for my sister-in-law. Actually, it's kinda a 1st for me. I usually don't use patterned paper...odd... I mean, this is my first time with Prima papers too!
I love it!
-Storybook for designs on front of card & envelope.
-Glossy accents in the center of card design
-Jasmine for her name & inked
-CB Swiss dots for one on front of envelope (I used SusieB's idea for the rubber packing mat, but only put it on the center of the flower so the swirls on the sides weren't touched! Awesome!

BBTB & BOAB 2 - ATC Cards




BBTB is having another contest!! Make whatever you want, just make it apply to school & must use one cricut cut!! With the instructions for the contest, there wasn't a time frame of when this could be made - so hopefully this will still be okay!
These are the ATC cards made for my partner "Osheasmom" Keisha
She is about to graduate & become a teacher :)

This was the first "word" for the project & was probably my favorite part!
A+ is from Plantin
The 2 frames are from Storybook
Swiss dots embossing with a little inking!! I love to ink my stuff!!
