Love is in the Air at Fantabulous Cricut Challenge

Yes another valentine!!!  This one is with Fantabulous Cricuts #97 – Love is in the air Include a heart on your project


I used the Cricut Sweethearts Cartridge which is a must for valentine cards or any card that is all about LOVE!!!!  I spruced up the little puppy my way used a little bit of the Valentine supplies I have bought thru the year.  Reflections border punch  some thickers that are blinged up a little and one of those dollar bin stamps that are so addictive for a card maker.  (I like to think of myself that way) 

Thanks so much for stopping by and sharing my love with me to making cards!!!!!

YOU"RE Just my type~~~~

I have been fixated on using my imagine and trying to learn all it's capabilities in the Craft Room.  I am a slow learner but it is becoming easier and easier.  I have been lucky that it has done everything I have asked it with no glitches so far in the craft room. shhhhhhhhhh i shouldn't say that to loud or jinx myself!!!  I have seen other valentines with typewriters and dediced to change up the cuts on the Imagine More Cartridge for this card.  I really need to start writing down my sizes I use.  This is a A2 size card with some old gingham paper i have had for years.  I just put it on the mat and printed my sentiment which i moved around and added a text box with Ashlyn Alphabet cartridge.

I am all about texture so i used a few embossing folders on a few elements on the card and finished it up with some red stickles!!!!

Doesn't the Imagine print nice on the printed paper!!!!!  Sure helps when your stamping skills need brushed up on!!!!

I hope you stay and look around my blog at some of the other things I am learning to do with my Scrappin Goodies!!!

Mom's 82 Birthday Card

Its a special day at our house today!!!  Its my mom's 82 birthday!!!  My mom has been living with us since my dad passed away two years ago  and I haven't gotten to spend many of those birthdays with her
because she lived so far away from us, so today is special!!!  Of course with such a special day comes a special card.... 

I have been trying to perfect using my imagine with my cards lately and using the printer in it to get the right papers to go with my cards.  I can never just let a cut go with out either inking, embossing, and adding embellishments and like other crafters'  using punches and border punches to add to the designs of my cards!!

I am so pleased with how the imagine prints and that you can layer your cards to give them depth.  Of course inking the edges always help!!! 

I used the Imagine More Cards cartridge to do most of this card and of course a stamp for the sentiment!!

Lots and lots of mounting tape and glue dots to make sure things don't come off my card!!!

I have decided to enter this in two different challenges this week because this was a personal challenge for me!!! 

Challenges I entered are My Craft Spot
                                   Die Cuttin Divas
Both challenges are a ANYTHING GOES CHALLENGE!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and feel free to comment or ask any questions about what I do!!!
