Challenge Me Monday #99

Hello Everyone,

#99 – Fancy Trims
Use fabric, lace or other trims on your project 
Here is my Entry: 
I started this 5 1/4" square card out with a base of white cs (you can hardly see this in the picture). Then the next layer is cut 5 1/8" square in black cs. The next layer is a 5" square I printed and cut with my imagine. The cartridge is the black and white by Teresa Collins (love this cart). I just used hot pink paper instead of white. The next layer is a scalloped square cut at 4 1/2" found on the Elegant Edges Cartridge. The pink cs is cut at 4 1/4". The girl is cut at 3 1/2" and is from the Forever Young Cartridge. The banners along with the sentiment piece of cs are 1 1/4" wide, each are shadowed with black cs. The sentiment is from Classy & Fabulous a MCT Stamp. I used pop ups on the scallop square, girl, banners, and sentiment. I added buttons, sheer ribbon, and a gemstone along with some distressing.
For the inside of the card I did something very easy I just wanted to cut down the white space on the inside. It is hard to fill it up on a 5 1/4" square card and it looks to plain if I don't add something.

Challenge Me Monday #98

Hello Everyone,

                                            Fun With Puns
Include a funny title or phrase on your project 
Here is my entry:
This was lots of fun, I just changed Sweetie to Sweet-tea. I cut the teapot at 3" from the Everyday Pop up Cards Cricut Cartridge. I used Recollections Kraft CS for the base of this A2 sized card. I used Graphic 45 Paper the Le' Romantique collection. I put glitter on the knob and the flowers are cut from some punches. I added the gold pearl pen to the centers of the flowers added stitching, jute, a button, distressing and MCT curly label die to my card. The sentiment is a mix from a couple MCT stamps.

Hope you like,

Throwback Thursday Challenge

Hello Everyone,

Here are the details for this challenge:
*** This challenge is a BUG'S THEME CHALLENGE! Use any older cartridge of YOUR choice & create a project of YOUR choice using a "BUG" theme!

This is my entry:

I used the Walk in my Garden cricut cartridge, definitely an older cartridge. I cut the flower pot out at 3". I welded 2 together at the side. I did this to hold it together better. I made one of these cards years ago and remember I really like it. It was the first thing I thought of for Emma's challenge this week. I have a lot of different flowers so I decided to add some of my stash instead of making some like I usually do.  The flowers are from Prima.  I just layered some and added centers. I tied a bow with some sheer ribbon and also added a teeny tag die cut  and a greeting from teeny tag greetings all from MCT. On the tag I added a bumblebee and I also did some distressing on the flower pot. (sorry not a very good picture of it)

Now for the inside: I am not sure who I am going to give this to. Maybe I will use it for Mother's Day. Therefore, I have not stamped anything on the tag that pulls out from the pot.

Challenge Me Monday #97

Hello Everyone,

#97 – Love is in the air
Include a heart on your project 
For this project I made a shaped card. I welded 2 scalloped hearts from the Sweethearts Cartridge. I cut this at 4.25 and then cut another scalloped heart at 3.75 to layer on top. The girl is cut from the Forever Young Cartridge and cut at (emblem) 2. On the banner I used one of the stamps from MCT 100% Sweetness. I added some small roses, stitching, and distressing. This was simple.

The label was cut at 3" and love was cut at 2". The rolled flowers are a die-namic from MFT Stamps.I added some bling and white gelly roll pen. Also the leafs are a punch from MS.
