A Daughter-in-Law and a friend....

It is my daughter-in-laws birthday today..... and i made this card using cloud 9 papers and the Elegant Edges Cartridge.  I have lots of mulberry flowers and decided to make a butterfly with the flowers as part of the wings. I strung some beads for the body and attached with Glossy Accents.  Ink,pop dots, and layers with a ribbon finished it off.... 

The finished card...

I so loved making this card and am quite pleased with how it turned out.  The Elegant Edges cart made this so easy!!!!

~~Too cute fo Spook~~~

Trying our the card feature on Mini Monsters and using my new Peachy Keen Stamps.... What a wonderful combo!!!!  I usually don't do much stamping but I dug into my halloween stamps and couldn't resist the spiders or the sentiment!!!
Thanks for Looking!!!!!

Papercutzchallenge #109

Seems like when I go to a challenge site it always inspires me to do a little designing...of course with the help of alot of others that are so inspiring!!!  I was on Cricut's Message boards scrolling thru the cards and LindaK from The Paper Boutique posted a wonderful Halloween card with a great video on making a simple pop-up card.  Go check it out!!!  I had seen that Paper Cutz Challenge had a card challenge using Ghostly things and the colors purple, orange, black, and white only this week.  So using the video on a pop--up card from Linda and the challenge this is what I came up with!!!  (i also used the make it yourself wobble with Linda has video instructions for so my little ghost woobles and that makes his eyes move too!!!

I used Cricut's Mini Monsters for my little ghostly guy and the phrase feature for the popped up Haunting on the insides.  Wanted to leave a blank space to add a message or a gift card for one of my many neices or nephews that I will be sending this to this halloween season!!!  Thanks for stopping and taking a look with what I hope to be the start of many more to come......

New technique tried....

After watching utube and seeing Sketch 1 of Raq's weekley card challenge on the Provo Craft messageboards I just had to try inking up a embossing folder to see if it had the look of the sketch.
I was impressed with how it defined the image more and gave the embossing a deeper looking image.  I used a new butterfly punch i bought recently.  I really have to stay out of the stores.  Seems like I am buying more than I am scrapping!!  Thanks for taking a look!!!

New Cartridge/Challenge Entry




I haven’t posted or made a new card is so long.  I have been busy working on a tag challenge (my first) and have neglected my cards.  On My Craft Spot, this week they are challenging all to make a project for a friend.  I just purchased a couple of the newer Cricut Lite cartridges with Bump in the Night being one of them.  Even though we are all a little different we have friends of all kinds.  These cute little monsters reminded me of that!!!  I have watched Utube , visited different sites trying to get motivated to make a card.  I am sure you will see other cards similar to mine but I changed it up and combined different things to get my card!!  A few embossing folders and some ink button and bows and I have a card to send to a friend!!  Hopefully this card has broken the ice on the freeze I have been in making cards!!!
