Mahalo Card

After thinking about this card for 2 days, I finally got it made!  I made it for these 3 challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut-Challenge #61 Blue Skies-use the color blue and 1 cloud
My Creative Time-Use an "older" cartridge and the colors green and yellow
Scrappy Moms Stamps- Terrific Tuesday-use Life's A Beach

This a 5 1/4" square card.  I cut the chair at 2 1/2", umbrella at 2 3/4", sun at 2", and the cloud and beach ball each at 1".  I inked the edges of everything.  I used my Creative Memories decorative trimmer to cut the sand paper.  I pop dotted the cloud up. 


Cartridges-Life's A Beach, Every Day Paper Dolls, Designer's Calendar

Cardstock-all scraps!

Birthday Card

I finally made another card!  This one is for my brother's birthday next week.  This is just a standard A2 sized card.  I cut the boot at 3".  I inked the edges of all the pieces with Chestnut Roan and used my CM brown pen to connect the cuts to get the pattern on the boots.  I really wanted this card to have the sentiment "Kick Up Your Heels."  I looked for over a week at stores and on line.  I never did find a stamp set with that sentiment, so I just made it myself!  I have NEVER done that before!  It's not great, but it's for my brother and he won't care!

Thank you for a Teacher card

I have decided that along with my new blog colors, I am going to try a new way of posting.  I am also going to cut down on my labels.  Let me know if you like this way better!

Today I made a card that will work for 3 different challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut-Teacher Feature-use the color red
My Creative Time-Throwback Thursday-use Doodlecharms and the color blue
My Craft Spot-Bling It Up!-use something shiny!
I cut the apple at 3" and the worm at 2 1/5".  I inked the edges of everything, even though you can really only see it on the green.  I added a scrap piece of white glitter paper to make the accent on the apple.  I added googly eyes to the worm and pop dotted him up.

Apple from Doodlecharms
Worm from Create A Critter
All of the paper was from my scrap pile!
Edges inked with Colorbox chalk ink
Punch from Stampin' Up
Stamp from Close To My Heart

MPS Challenge 5

Challenge #5-make a 3D item.  This is the last one! YAY!  I did all 12!  I wasn't going to do this one, but it was the only one I didn't do and it has a really great prize!  I thought I was cutting a cupcake wrapper from Sweet Treats, but I hit fit to page and it is 11" big!  So, maybe I now have a really cute container for my scrapping area!  All the cuts are from Sweet Treats!

I am now done and I am taking tomorrow off! :)

MPS Challenge 9

Challenge #9-use glitz, glam, and glitter!  My picture is not very good, but the green (My Mind's Eye) paper and the white (DCWV) are glittery.  I used Sweet Treats for the cuts.  I used a texture plate from SU to give the cone some depth.  The stamp is Scrappy Mom's.

MPS Challenge 12

Challenge #12-make a project with a kid theme.  The challenge on Paper Playtime this week is to make a 9x4 card.  I have been wanting to make a card with my Toy Story cartridge, so I figured this bigger card would be the way to go.  I cut Woody at 6".  The pieces were still incredibly small!  But, I think the card turned out really cute!  The printed paper is from Creative Imaginations.  The stamp and ink are CTMH.

MPS Challenge 11

Challenge #11-use pink, green, and black on your project.  Much harder than it sounds!  I got the sketch from the Mojo Monday blog.  I am also using this for the challenge at Cardztv.   I used Block Party for my cuts.  The green print paper is from Creative Imaginations.  I inked the edges of the watermelon to give it some depth.  The stamps is from Scrappy Mom's using CTMH ink.  The cardstock was all scraps, but the pink is melon mambo from SU.
