A Non-Cricut Card

I'm glad I joined Emma's challenge, I created another non-Cricut card.  It's good practice, since the hubster will have the laptop all day tomorrow.

The pattern paper is DCWV Stack 7; the rub-ons by Fancy Pants; brads from my stash; ribbon from Michael's dollar bin.

Holiday Project Challenge - Cooking with Cricut

There I go, creating Christmas cards, when clearly I should be working on Thanksgiving. I'm entering this card in the Holiday Project Challenge over at Cooking with Cricut blog.

The reindeer and snowflakes are rub ons by Fancy Pants.  The poinsettias and brads are Making Memories and the ribbon is from Michael's.  The scallop cut is from 09 Kuts Up font, cut with Sure Cuts A Lot.  The label is from Home Decor cartridge.  I used three layers but cut only two, the smaller one was drawn using my Cri-Kit gel pens.  The "comfort and joy" is a cut file I shared last year...since the font is dainty, I used my Cri-Kit pens to draw (it cuts best over 4") I then colored it in with my Gelly Roll glitter pen. 


I got the inspiration from my friend Staci, Precious Memories Scrapbooking.  I have the same stamp set she won on blog a several weeks ago.  This is the first time using it...that's bad...the set is from Kelly Panacci by Sandylion.  I heat embossed using Pearllustre's so pretty.  The card base is TPC and the flowers were cut from DCWV Fall Stack '09.  The "thankful" cut is my own

Card Patterns Sketch Challenge # 90

I'm joining in on the fun! I have a few challenges I'm participating in this week. I figured it was a good way to get my card making going.  Now, I may not follow the sketch to the ink but it helps me get started.

Here's the card sketch from Card Patterns Blog.

Paper is  DCWV & The Paper Co.  Both stamps, "Merry Christmast" and the snowflakes are by Studio G...purchased at Michael's for a buck each.  I used VersaMark and then sprinkled Stampendous embossing powder, Red Tinsel and Kaleidoscope.  The red snowflake ribbon is from Karen Foster.  I dry embossed using Cuttlebug folders.

First Xmas Card of the Season!

Instead of creating Thanksgiving cards, I created my first Christmas card. The hubs had the laptop last night, so I cut without SCAL.  So I used Home Accents to cut the frame.

The card base is The Paper Co., cardstock and the pattern paper is DCWV.
Pointsettas and brads are Making Memories and the Holy ribbon is from Karen Foster.
The sentiment is a stamp from Inkadinkado Christmas Silhouettes I bought for $2. I used VersaMark and sprinkled Stampendous Silver Tinsel embossing powder and then heat embossed.
The tiny snowman tag is a stamp from Studio G, I stamped with one of their dollar ink pads, both I purchased from Joann's for a buck.  I used my glitter Gelly Roll and Creative Memories fine tips pens to color him in and finally I added a couple of gems from Darice and adhered them with Ailleen's Fast Grab Tacky glue.
