Challenge Me Monday #135

Hello Everyone,

Today is Monday and so time for a new Challenge Me Monday over at the Fantabulous Cricut Blog.
The challenge is Seeing Spots. Make a project using Polka Dots. What a fun challenge. Here is my project:

My project is an A2 sized card. The base is black cs. I used my imagine and printed the polka dot paper from the Teresa Collins cartridge, Black and White.  I also printed the diamond paper. I used the swiss dots cuttlebug folder behind the frame. I used the CTMH Artiste, boy I love this cartridge, to cut out the flowers and the frame and silhoutte. I used a corner punch and added some red gems in the corners. I did not include a sentiment with this card. Well, I hope you join us for this challenge and link your project up I would love to see what you have created. If you have not stopped at the other design team members blog do so they have some pretty amazing projects.

Designer Challenge at MCT

Hello Everyone,

I am entering the challenge over at MCT and the host this week is Shar.
Here are her details to this challenge - make your own flowers, a minimum of three (3), they don't have to be the same, incorporate some kind of bling, and use them on a card or layout. But there is a teensy twist -- you must use this lovely color palette for your project.

Here is my project - I made a set of 3 cards to go along with a box to put them in. I used the Simple Stories Harvest Lane paper pad and the only cricut cut was from CTMH Artiste the flowers. The twine is my bling it fits right in with the fall theme. Everything else was part of the paper collection.
 This top picture is the box and below are the 3 cards I made out of the paper pad.

Thanks for stopping by,

Challenge Me Monday #133

Hello Everyone,

Well it is Monday and time for another Challenge Me Monday over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. This week the challenge is down at the farm. Make a project using a farm animal (cow, pig, horse, sheep etc) Well I knew exactly what I wanted to use for my farm animal the minute I heard about this challenge. First off if you can't tell I am a city girl and when I have visited the country or a farm my favorite animal was a cat. You can't have a farm without one of these or lots of these. I needed a birthday card and what better animal to put on one. I tried to show the cat in a light of queen of the farm. I hope you like it.

The base of my card is white and it is an A2 sized card. Next I layered black CS, then hot pink, and then black again. The cat was cut from Create a Critter and cut out at 3.5" and the party hat was also cut from the same cartridge. I did some inking, and I used my i-rock for the jewels. The sentiment came from My Craft Spot, Birthday Wishes stamp set. It was the perfect sentiment for my card. I hope you like it and  check out the rest of the design team they have made some amazing projects.  Then I hope you join us this week for this really fun challenge, I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Happy Crafting,

Challenge Me Monday #131

Hello Everyone,

It is time already for a new Challenge Me Monday over at the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog. For the challenge this week it is Get 'em Squished (Breast Cancer Awareness). Make a project using the color pink.
Here is my Project:

For my card today I used CTMH Artiste and Stand and Salute. My card base is 6 by 4 1/4. Just wanted to be a little different on size. The ribbons were cut from the Stand and Salute and 1 is cut at 5.5" and the other is 3".  The doily and the flower were cut from the Artiste and cut at 3.5" and 1.25" on the flower. The sentiment is from an old stamp set from Stampin Up. I colored the smaller ribbon and flower with my copic markers. I then used my air gun and sprayed some of the same color copic for the top piece of card stock. Well I hope you check out all the design team for some inspiration. They have created some amazing projects. Next I hope you take this challenge and link your project up. Thanks for stopping by.

Happy Crafting,
