Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 66

Hello Everyone,

I created this card for the Peachy Keen Sketch Challenge.

I started with an A2 sized card with black cs. The white is layered on top of the black and cut 4 x 5 1/4. Then the red pattern paper (made on the imagine with red cs and the black and white cart by Teresa Collins) is cut 3 7/8 x 5 1/8. The white cs with the stamped image is 2 1/2 x 4. The black piece of cs that runs across the top is 1 1/8 wide. Friends furever is from My Creative Time stamp set Classy & Fabulous and the die is also. The stamped images are from MCT also (Keepin' it Classy). I paper pieced the stamped image and just cut out a square for the bag and used just the handle of a purse in the stamp set. I applied liquid applique to her dress,  purse and collar of the dog. I distressed with black soot and put bling on the dog's collar. I also used my atyou spica pen in red to make shoes on the image and bracelets and hair bling.  This is hard to see in the picture. Finished it off with a bow. I hope you like it. I just can't quit playing around with Keppin' it Classy stamp set.

Etching with the Cricut

Hello everyone,

I wanted to share these bulbs I made with the Forever Young Cricut Cartridge.  I used my gypsy to utilize the 6 x 6 piece of shelf paper liner. You can also use vinyl. I was able to make 4 with the 6 x 6 piece I had. This is one of my favorite cartridges, love love love it.  I found these bulbs on sale after last Christmas with the plans in mind for this year. I think they will look darling on the tree. I will be giving these to the ladies that I meet with once a month on Thursday night. I have some other things I have been working on also.  I explain how I made them in the video.

I etched these 2 different ways one with negative and other with the image.

Thanks for watching.

Challenge Me Monday #87

#87 – Thank You

Hello everyone,
I hope you had a wonderful Black Friday. I know I did. I have so much to be thankful for. Top of the list  would be my family. That is why I chose to make a thankful card for a military serviceman. This card along with a care package will be going out this week.

I used the Stand and Salute

I used the second key (the flag) and took off the yellow chain so I could make the card 4 1/4 X 5 1/2. I cut out the eagle at 3" and I embossed the blue area for stars with swiss dots and rubbed white craft ink over it. The thanks is from wild card. I then attached the flag to a white base card.

Here is a look at the inside of the card. I cut the serviceman out at 3".

Thanks for taking a look.

Peachy Keen Stamps :: Sketch Challenge 65 w/ a Twist: Paper Piecing

Here is my entry for the challenge!
First of all this is a 4 1/4" square card. I printed the paper with my imagine. I used the Black and White colors and patterns by Teresa Collins. The penguin stamp is a peachy keen stamp along with sentiment.
I paper pieced his scarf with a solid red then I used my clear star dust on every other strip. The circle, scallop and tag are all nestibilities.  I used copics on the penguin and I added some dazzling diamonds for the snow. I added stitching around the tag, ribbon and some red pearls.

 Here is a look at the inside.

Thanks for taking a look.

Gift box - Purse Box

Hope you like this box. I designed it to fit the A2 cards in it. I will be giving these away for gifts at Christmas. My family request them so I thought making a nice sturdy box would last and then I would make refills for them when they needed more cards.

Wild Card Mini Album

I designed this mini album with the wild card cricut cartridge.  I called this mini Senior Year.  I used DCWV paper lace and linen which is mosty pinks and browns. Senior year is a very memorable time even with all the drama it goes by so fast.  Hope you enjoy.

I used glossy accents on the letters to make them stand out on the cover.
This is just one of the pages.

Cricut Portrait Tips

In this video that I posted I just show you the basics for the portrait mode.  I think sometimes it would have been the better default, not landscape.  It also has been misunderstood.  So I just show what I have learned about it just by using my cricut a whole lot.

Thanks and have a great day!

Hope you enjoy the viedo.

Have a great day!

Diaper Cake

I made this diaper cake for my friend's daughter shower.  We had the shower on Saturday March 12th.  It was so much fun and everyone enjoyed the cake. The new mother to be is doing a safari theme and concentrating on the monkey.  Monkeys are just so cute! It was so much fun to make I used the sweethearts and create a critter cricut cartridges.  The diapers are the prefolded cloth ones and very easy to fold in quarters and roll them.  Here is a picture and then I also did a video on it.

She loves the cake so much she will be using it for a decoration at her other shower.  Some time after that she will take it apart. I put the animals on with pop dots and should be easy to take off.  She will be able to save all of them and they will be used for the baby scrapbooks.  What a nice memory this will be giving her.  Her sister will be doing most of the scrapbooking.  Well here is the video on how I put this cake together and the reason it is pink, blue, yellow and green is because we did not knnow what she was having it was revealed at the shower and she is having a boy. 

Have a great day!

Wild Card Gypsy Envelopes

I use my gypsy to adjust sizes on different envelopes so they will fit 3 by 3, 4 by 4, 5.5 by 4.25 and any other size cards I need.  I just take off the aspect ratio and this gives you the freedom to create all kinds of sizes.

 For this video I used the envelope on page 54 of the Wild Card Cartridge.
3 x 3  is 5.75W x 4.75H
4 x 4 is 7.5W x 6H
4.25 x 4.25 is 8.10 W x 6.35H
4.25 x 5.5 is 10.25W x 6.25H
Have a great day!
