CWC Challenge #69-Winter Warmth

Today’s challenge at Cooking with Cricut is to create a project with the theme of Winter warmth'   i.e. scarves, hats, fireplace, hot chocolate, etc.

I created a bear "Sending Warm Fuzzies" with a tall cup of frothy hot chocolate, with tiny marshmallows sprinkled with cinnamon and nutmeg and may I add, it smells yummy!

I used the Bear holding the caramel apple and the coffee cup from "I love you a latte".   The heart is from Cake Basics cartridge.  I embossed the cozzie and the blue paper with Darice's embossing folder I purchased at my LSS.  I didn't know they made embossing folders, until I saw them at my LSS.  I hope they make more designs. :)  The sentiment is my own, you may download it below.

Please stop by Cooking with Cricut and check out the fabulous designs from the Design Team.

Something Old, New, Borrowed & Blue Blog Hop

Welcome to Day One of Paper Crafting World and Cooking with Cricut’s first Blog Hop of 2012!  Our theme is: “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue!”

If you have arrived here from Heather's blog, The Hunny Pot you’re right on track.  If you want to start from the beginning, please head on over to see Melin at Cooking with Cricut.

We had to use something old from our craft stash, something new (a recent purchase or new technique), something borrowed (an element from a Cricut cut or from a Paper Crafting World cutting file or digi stamp) and of course, something blue.

Here's what I whipped up:

OLD:  The pattern paper and embossed paper is at least 5 years old. NEW:  The bling from Heide Grace and doily by Wilton.  BORROWED:  I borrowed the outfit from the Trick o Treating bear and put it on the new Fairy.  BLUE:  Well there's plenty on there. =)

Make sure you check in tomorrow at Cooking with Cricut for Day Two.

Birthday Gift Set

I used Purple Cow's, Craft Geek Spring Paper Punch to create the border on the card.  The gift box was a free One-Piece Gift Box SVG collection from SVG Cuts. The leaves are a cut from my Making Memories Slice. =)

Here's a closer look at the punched border.

Here's the border before I trimmed off the strips.  The guide on the punch base makes it super easy to create borders or paper lace, as you will see on my next project.

This is another card I created using the same paper punch from Purple Cows to create paper lace.  The fabulous image is a rubber stamp from Fresh Brewed Designs.  The gorgeous crinkle ribbon is by 3 Girl Jam.
