Halloween card

I'm pretty excited about this card, although there isn't much on it but some cricut cuts!
I used the dress from Dreams Come True.
Stickles on the trim
A Making Memories rub-on
Inside is the cauldron from PDDU
Paper is a Halloween pack from Recollections.

More Christmas Cards

Here are more I made for a swap

This one used JOTS for the penguin.
$1 stamp from Ms
EK Success Snowflake punch

Snowflake embossing folder
It was some paper from Sams (2 sided)
The core was white, so I lightly sanded the top, making all the snowflakes white against the blue background
$1 stamp from Ms

Cup from JOTS
Used vellum to cut the steam -- can you see it?? :)

Christmas Cards

I've made more Christmas cards for a 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!

I made this for the BOAB2
I love it so much, I might have to make one for myself to keep around here!

BOAB2 - Summer watermelon

Again, made this for the BOAB2. I love all the colors together, although it was hard to match them! haha
I even put glossy accents on the seeds to make them shine!

BOAB 2 - Notecards

Love these! First non-font cut I did from Storybook.
Used little bling in the middle of the flowers & popped the middle part up with dots.
I made 4 notecards.

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!!
