FBD Challenge #75

It's Wednesday and it's time for another challenge at Fresh Brewed Designs!  The challenge is to use cloth or felt.  I cut the poinsettia on paper then used that as a pattern to hand cut the felt.  Both images are from FBD, "Angel Cake Bakes" and "My Christmas Tree, the newest digi in the shop.

Tag It

I just love the sentiment and love "Sunshine" from Fresh Brewed Designs!!  How cute does she look with her polka dot rain boots!  The pattern paper is from K & Co. The card is one I saw a couple years ago, I don't remember where but I love heart pocket.  I used the heart from Sure Cuts A Lot program.  One heart sized smaller, then turned it upside down and welded both hearts.  The cloud is also a shape in the program.  The tag is from Tags, Boxes and More cartridge.  Purple is my favorite color and would you believe I don't have purple flowers! What??!!  I used Purple Soda Smooches to paint pink Prima flowers.  I just love how they turned out!!  I was surpised the bottle of Smooches wasn't dried out, I've had it since this Summer and who knows how long it sat on the store shelf. =)

Here's "Sunshine".

Especially for You

My sister's birthday, Dulce's Mom, has a birthday next month. Here's the card I created for her.
Check out the beautiful crocheted flowers!  My Mom made them for me!  ¡Gracias Socorrito!
The image is a rubber stamp from Freshed Brewed Designs.  I created the doily with Purple Cows'  Winter corner punch.  I rounded the corners and adhered them to a 3.5" circle.  Love how it turned out.  The sentiment is by Scrappy Cat, ribbon from Michaels.

Happy Everything

Here's the card I created, using paper from my stash and some new too!

The shape cut is from My Minds Eye, I Believe kit.  

Here's the inside of the card:  All images and sentiments are from The Stamps of Life.  The fancy label is a die cut from Sizzix cut on my Cuttlebug.   The glitter paper is from DCWV and I also used Gelly Roll Stardust glitter pen to accent the ribbon on the gifts.

The window frame is recycled from the packing of Art-C glitter.

Here's the packing I recycled.  I'll be creating another project using the brown window frame. =)

Thank you for stopping by today and HAPPY EVERYTHING!!


Here's a quick card I created using My Minds Eye, Believe Kit.  I first embossed the Kraft paper from The Paper Company with Cuttlebug Snowflake folder.  I then inked the flakes with a silver ink pad by Studio G, it added a bit of shimmer.  The die cuts and paper ribbon are all from the kit.

CWC Challenge #59 Harvest

Happy Wednesday! Today starts a new challenge at Cooking with Cricut!  It's all about Fruits, Cornucopia and Harvest time. 
The card base is from Elegant Edges cart, I used the hide/contour feature to hide the flourish on the lower right hand corner.  My paper kept tearing, what I should have done was use my Cri-Kit pens to draw, then add glitter.  The bear and the leaves behind him are digis from Paper Crafting World.
The sentiment is a stamp set from here..
Here's the inside of the card.  I used the Thanksgiving cart.  I used my Cri-Kit pens to draw the title.  I then colored and added some glitter to the leaves.
