Thank you EAD Designs!

I made this card as a thank you for Emily at EAD Designs because I gave her suggestions for stickers and she brought them to life! You should send her ideas. You never know when she will use them! :)

Since she finally got the thank you today, I can post it now! 

I made this card with the Hoot-a-licious stickerz - how cute are they- because I knew she has a thing for owls. :) I also used the A2 Forest Branches Emboss Folder™ and some Cosmo Cricket Material Girl paper that I bought at Torendi

It was simple and quick because EAD makes it that easy!

Come back tomorrow for a Halloween blog hop that goes from October 1st -3rd where I am giving away My Pink Stamper stamps, a cartridge, some Cuttlebug folders, and EAD Designs stickerz sponsored by EAD! There are prizes at every stop and you won't want to miss out on the fun, so I hope you will hop along and hopefully win something!

On Monday, I will be making a big announcement that I am SO excited about! See you around, thanks for stopping by, and welcome to my new followers and I hope to keep getting better and better to inspire you! :)

Be Inspired #103 - Haunted House

This week for Be Inspired Wednesday at the Cuttlebug Challenges we are celebrating World Card Day early and giving you inspiration of all different kinds. We were given free reign and our personalities really came out in our work. I hope you enjoy and hop over to join in the fun! EDIT: They are giving away TWO cartridges to those that play along and follow! Woo Hoo! 

This haunted house was so much fun to create. I put on the Harry Potter movie in the background and went to work.

When I purchased the October 31st Cartridge™ I automatically knew I wanted to make this into a shape card on my Gypsy™. I paired this with some Pink Paislee™ supplies that I won over at Penny's blog! She was so generous and you will be seeing a lot of that awesome black glitter coming up. I had never used Pink Paislee™ and I loved it! Thank you!

Cartridge: October 31st™
Paper/Cardstock: Cricut™ Card Stock Earthtone (orange), Pink Paislee™ Twilight Collection (black), My Mind's Eye™: Ooh La La paper pack - For Him: Get in Line (yellow with orange cross-hatching, Bazzill™ (diamond white)
Adhesive: Glue Glider Pro Perma-Tac™ - I LOVE this and I have an ATG as well, but this is my new love for sure.
Glitter: Pink Paislee Pixie Stix™
Hero Arts Black Adhesive Gems
Glossy Accents

1. Weld together two haunted houses with everything "hidden" except the outline. Don't forget that one has to be flipped. (This is the dark orange layer.)
2. Duplicate the house that is going to be on the front and put on a new layer. (This is the black layer.)
3. Duplicate the house again on another new layer. On this layer, "hide" everything BUT the windows. You want the windows not to cut - for them to be solid. (This is the yellow with orange cross hatching layer.)
4. Cut all of the objects out.
5. Glue #3 to card base (#1) using your Glue Glider Pro.
6. Hand cut little white ghosts (I wish I would have had that adorable ghost in Paper Doll Dress Up for this one!) and draw sad little faces on them.
7. Glue sad little ghosts onto the yellow with orange cross-hatching layer making sure that they will peek out of the windows properly.
8. Take the black layer and apply glue to the roof (you could use Glossy Accents to make it more solid, but I wanted this house to look dilapidated so I just used glue and kept shaking it off.)
9. Add two orange Hero Arts adhesive gems to the gables of the house.
10. Add black adhesive gems to the bottom two sides and one as the door knob.
11. Apply Glossy Accents™ to the rest of the black layer
12. Pop dot the black layer and add to the front of the card.

Enjoy your card!

I might make this larger and do it as a wall decor item because I really liked how it turned out. I hope you do as well!

Well, I'm sure you are getting to know that I LOVE EAD Designs "stickerz" and vinyl.

In this post I am using one of the new sets called Lady Bug Fun!
I wanted this card to be clean, simple, and happy. I added buttons to the ladybug's antlers and the rest was oh so easy!

Paper: Bazzill™, Cricut™

Cuttin' Up Saturdays with Whoopsi Daisy!

This Saturday edition of Cuttin' Up is sponsored by Whoopsi Daisy!

I LOVE ELEPHANTS. I saw this one and HAD to have it. Isn't he the cutest? There are lots of people pregnant in my life right now and they all seem to be having boys! :) So I knew this card would come in handy.

I colored theWhoopsi Daisy Sheet 33™ image with my Sharpie™ markers. I used to use them for marking my golf ball so that it would differ from other people's. They sure came in handy!

I made this shaped card using my Gypsy™ and the Graphically Speaking Cartridge™. I used the clock shadow, hid the center hole, and then welded the moon (with holes hidden) to the front. Next I re-cut the moon in an off white, embossed it with the Checkerboard embossing folder, and used bright blue ColorBox™ ink to ink up the front inconsistently so it would look like the moon a bit. Obviously the moon isn't checkered - I do know that. :) I glued my image down so I could have him just peeking out and embellished with some Hero Arts™ adhesive stars.

Now, let me tell you it is no small feat taking a picture of a perfectly round card. I just kept rolling! But I was able to open it a bit and snap this picture. Haha. You should have seen me trying to do it. It was pretty funny.

Paper: white printer paper for the image and Core'dinations for the orange, DCWV for the off-white
Elephant: Whoopsi Daisy Sheet 33™
Markers: Sharpie™
Embossing: OhMyCrafts Exclusive Everyday Bundle: Checkerboard™
Stamps: My Pink Stamper: Everyday Occasions
Cartridges: Graphically Speaking™
Ink: ColorBox™, gStudio™
Hero Arts™ adhesive stars and gems

Don't forget to play along this week in our Be Inspired Wednesday challenge and you might 4 sheets (that's 16 images!) of Whoopsi Daisy images! :)

Be Inspired #102 with Whoopsi Daisy!

These digital stamps are too cute for their own good! Whoopsi Daisy is sponsoring us at the Cuttlebug Challenges this week! I love these images! :) We had to use at least two buttons and a bow!

I made this card without the Cricut (this one is for you, Dee!) :).

This is a feel better soon card. I always recommend drinking tea when sick, so why not send a tea bag with the card? What kind of tea, you ask...? This one happens to be Royal tea - it's close to an Earl Grey. I love Lady Grey and Rose tea. Those are my two favorites. Usually it's just peppermint when sick or sleepy though! Enough about me, onto the card!

I had so much fun coloring in this little lady and while the angle doesn't let you see, she is carrying a trey with a tea pot, sugar bowl, and milk pitcher. Too cute!

Embossing: A2 Victoria Emboss Folder™
Paper: DCWV™, Bo Bunny™, Bazzill™
Image: Whoopsi Daisy™ Sheet 42
Tea bag
Glossy Accents™
Sharpies and Copics

Come play along this week for your chance to win Whoopsi Daisy images! :)

Peachy Keen, Embellish Magazine, and My Pink Stamper

Here is another card that I made today for a few challenges.

Peachy Keen had a sketch for us:

Embellish Magazine is a new one for me. I got there from Jenny at Wee Memories' blog. So this is my first time in this challenge. It was a color challenge with paper piecing and I had a great time with this color combo. I had to tone it down because I had too many patterns and variations! :)

Lastly My Pink Stamper is doing the Anything Goes challenge so I am entering this in that one as well.

I used EAD Designs's Right on Target Stickerz for the tree and adorable mushroom. I love their products. They say the stickerz are reposition-able and thank goodness for me, they truly are. I put these stickers on a white sheet of card stock and then cut them out and popped them with dimensionals.

The card stock is Cricut™ and Recollections™ and the yellow design paper is K&Co.

I used the Swiss Dots Emboss Folder™ to emboss the little dots on the green layer. I finished it off with some Jillybean Soup ribbon that I picked up at Torendi™ and some doodling with a white gel pen. I have to say, I think this is one of the best bows I have ever done.

I used my new Glue Glider Pro™ with perma-tac™ for everything but the bow which is a separate piece and I stuck one of their Extreme Adhesive Squares™ behind it - I think I'm in love with those things!

Okay, this is my second post of the day so scroll down for the previous one. Tomorrow I will have a project done with images from Whoopi Daisy here and over at the Cuttlebug Challenge.

I am getting really excited for the blog hop that is coming up October 1-3. I have an awesome prize to give away so be sure to sign up as a follower and come back or just put it on your calendars! :)


Off the Wall Craftiness, Caardvarks, and My Pink Stamper

Today was a day to try to participate in some challenges which is always fun. :) I am participating in a few new ones. One of those new ones is called Caardvarks. Their challenge was clean and simple stamping.

I love participating in Kim's challenges at Off the Wall Craftiness and this was our inspiration photo:

Lastly, My Pink Stamper is having a challenge where anything goes so this one and the next one will both qualify for it! :)

This is an A2 sized card which Robyn would tell us over and over is 5.5x4.25" - but thank goodness because now I know it! I am ready to take the My Pink Stamper quiz! haha.

The white base is Bazzill™, the dark pink is Core'dinations™, and the light pink is actually white card stock. I inked up the Love is in the Air™ embossing folder and then embossed it so that everything ELSE was pink and the embossing was white. It's a technique I picked up from one of the design team members at the Cuttlebug Challenge before I was asked to be on the DT. I love learning new things. :)

I added some ribbon, some Hero Arts™ adhesive gems and adhesive flower, and cut the butterflies from the Gypsy Wanderings™ borders option and hid all of the detailing since I was going to cut it so small.

I hope you like it. It makes me smile and I can't wait to give it to one of my chick friends for their birthday!


EAD Designs is featuring my card! :)

Hey everyone, this morning I woke up to a fabulous surprise! The EAD team has featured my "Thanks for your service" card over on their blog! Please go over and leave me some love if you would like!

Have a great day!

Also, Digital Delights by Louby Loo (a sponsor of the Cuttlebug Challenge) is doing a giveaway! Head on over to check it out!

Cuttin' Up Saturdays with Crafty Secrets

This week we are being sponsored by Crafty Secrets - specialists in all things vintage in my opinion :)

The Cuttin' Up team has decided to do altered items for this edition and I am very excited about what I came up with.

My husband has to go to England and Paris on a business trip coming up and has asked me to go along. By using all of our combined airline points, I was able to book a flight!!! I am so excited. We are going from October 12-24th, but I will have posts going so fear not! I will not leave you without inspiration.

Well, recently we have gotten into making little videos - you know, tutorials and what not - and we are planning on making a DVD of our trip to Europe. It is my first time to Paris and I am oh so excited. Feel free to leave me comments on "must do" activities! So, I altered this blank DVD case to put our DVD in when we return! Notice the top of the trunk says "Paris" :)

I "mod-podged" the DVD case, mod-podged on the K&Co.™ background paper (this was my first time using Mod-Podge™ - love that stuff!) and Crafty Secrets™ items. I embossed the "Post Card" with the Window Panes Emboss Folder™. Then I cut the sentiment from Graphically Speaking™ out of Core'dinations™ paper and pop-dotted it. I added some buttons and voila!

Cartridge/Sentiment: Graphically Speaking™
Embossing: Oh My Crafts Exclusive: Window Panes™ (4 embossing folders on sale for $4.99 - That's why I bought them!)
Stamping: My Pink Stamper's Family and Friends™ set (the word "memories" stamped on the trunk)
Ink: VersaMark™ Neptune
Paper: K&Co.™, Core'dinations™

Don't forget to play along in our Be Inspired #101 Nostalgia challenge this week where you could win a prize package from Crafty Secrets!

EAD Designs, Peachy Keen, AND Digital Delights Challenges!

EAD Designs was having a color challenge and the theme was Farmer's Market - who doesn't love a good Farmer's Market?
Peachy Keen Stamps is having a color AND sketch challenge.
Since their colors were very similar, I decided to enter this in both! :)
BONUS! My good friend Wanda (HUGGLES) is now a member of the challenge DT over at Digital Delight's Delightful Challenge and this week you have to use a pumpkin. Done and done! :)

Here is the color combo/inspiration piece for EAD Designs:

Here is the sketch/color combo for PKS we had to work with:

Here is my card:

I think EAD will forgive me if I couldn't fit the cranberry in as I tried and tried, but I did get the pumpkins from the "farmer's market" aspect. :)

I welded a rectangle to the pumpkins on my Gypsy™ and hid the holes in the pumpkins for the background. Then I cut just the pumpkin border again with the holes in orange. I embossed the blue background piece with the Leafy Branch Emboss Folder™. Next I cut the layers and the sentiment is stamped with My Pink Stamper: Winter Punnies™ set. I popped the sentiment, added ribbon, tied it through a button, and added some Glossy Accents™ and Hero Arts™ adhesive gems.

Paper: Bazzill™, Core'dinations™, DCWV Home stack™
Cartridges: Gypsy Wanderings™
Embossing: A2 Leafy Branch Emboss Folder™
Sentiment: My Pink Stamper: Winter Punnies™ set
Glossy Accents™
Hero Arts™ adhesive gems

Thanks for viewing today! :) The October blog hop is coming up from Oct 1-3rd. I will have some great talent joining me and some fabulous prizes to give away... I just have to decide if I want to break them up or make it one fabulous prize. What do you think? :) The blog hop participants and order is up on the top left side of my home page. Enjoy your weekend!

My card for Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #24

Now it's my turn! :) This card was made for Off the Wall Craftiness Challenge #24 - Kim's blog! :)

I just got Winter Woodland yesterday in the mail from OhMyCrafts.... hint hint I bought two of them.... and why would I need two unless I was giving one away in the future.... :) Naturally I had to use the cartridge as soon as it came.

I loved this little squirrel. I hope you like it too! I Cuttlebugged the background layer and the acorn with Swiss Dots and the body with the Victoria Cuttlebug folders. I used my Fiskars Hearts™ border punch that Christy just gave me (THANKS CHRISTY!) and a cute little card was born! I finished it off with My Pink Stamper's Winter Punnies™ new stamp set (both the snowflakes and the sentiment) LOVE it! I have two more of her stamp sets on their way to me!

Cartridge: Winter Woodland™
Embossing: A2 Swiss Dots Emboss Folder™, A2 Victoria Emboss Folder™
Border Punch: Fiskars Hearts

Cuttin' Up Saturday - Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Challenges!

This week during the Cuttin' Up Saturday edition at the Cuttlebug Challenges we are going to use a "Happy Birthday" phrase that comes on a cartridge. There are a LOT of cartridges that come with a happy birthday phrase. I chose to use one from Elegant Cakes (there are actually two on this cartridge). I don't have my Cricut Cake™ Machine (yet), but I got this one just for the beautiful fonts and imagery and have used it on several cards. Remember, all the Cake Cartridges work in your Cricut®! :)

I wanted to make a shape card out of the words because it comes with a great shadow feature. I loaded the image onto my Gypsy™ and "hid" the holes in the shadow so that it would be a solid blackout image. After welding it together to make a card, I added another shadow layer (without hiding the holes), the phrase, and the "Happy" layer.

I chose to use Cosmo Cricket Material Girl DP that I got at Torendi. Torendi will soon be carrying Pink Paislee. Color me excited. Anyway, I digress.

After putting all of the layers together, I decided that it didn't have enough "pop" and was a little difficult to read, so I penned around all of the letters to make them stand out.

Simple quick and fun for a summer birthday!

Have a wonderful weekend! I am hosting a small Swarm at my house on Saturday and am very excited to teach some newbies the ways of the Cricut and Cuttlebug!

Don't forget to play in this week's Be Inspired challenge for a chance to win! :)

My Pink Stamper thank you and Torendi One Year Anniversary!

Hi everyone!

Just a quick post today showing you a thank you card I made for Robyn at My Pink Stamper for sending some stamps my way for the Cuttlebug Challenges (she should have gotten it by now hopefully) as well as an announcement that Torendi is having their one year anniversary and doing giveaways on their blog and facebook page!

I used some Sassafras paper from the Indie Girl Wee Bundle (back in stock!) for this thank you that I picked up at Torendi. Torendi also just got some new Sassafras paper in and they have an anniversary kit going that there are only 5 of, so pick one up if you want it! The sentiment came from My Pink Stamper's Everyday Occasions  - LOVE it.

The pink paper is Provo Craft Cricut Paper Pads Reds and Pinks™ and the grunge tag I won over at Mad Hatter Stamps a while ago. The flower is from the Gypsy Wanderings™ cartridge and embossed with Swiss Dots Emboss Folder™.

I just finished a huge project that I hope to share with you all soon - but I can't yet just in case it gets published. If it doesn't, it will be up very soon! I am very excited about it!

That's all for now! Have a beautiful day!

Be Inspired #100 - Happy Birthday Cuttlebug Challenges!

It's birthday week at the Cuttlebug Challenges and I am LOVING the spirit! :) It's always great to have birthday cards on hand, so join the challenge this week, play along, and maybe win some prizes as well!

This was a simple and fun card to make.

I used the A2 Happy Birthday Emboss Folder on some design paper from the Cosmo Cricket Material Girl Mini Deck that I picked up at Torendi.

I layered the card, tied a ribbon, and added a graphic from Designer's Calendar (the party hat and balloon). I then covered it with Glossy Accents and a cute card was born!

Have a great Wednesday!

Labor Day Layout

This was a quick layout done for a Labor Day Weekend challenge about what we did over the holiday. I'm not a "scrapbook person" so layouts are always really tough for me.

Cosmo Cricket Earth Love Chipboard™ - purchased from Torendi
Core'dinations paper - Nostalgia pack
Embossing: Embossing Folders Love is in the Air Set™, Swiss Dots Emboss Folder™
Cartridge: Storybook™

Don't forget that the Circle invitations are only good through the 13th, so if you would like to join, please send me an email and I will email you an invitation. :)

Have a great day!

Cuttin' Up Saturday with My Pink Stamper!

Hello everybody!

This is the My Pink Stamper edition of Cuttin' Up Saturdays at the Cuttlebug Challenge! I hope you are having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!

I think you already know by now that I LOVE My Pink Stamper stamps. This set is no different. In fact, you all have a chance to win it if you play along this week! This set is called Punny-licious.

I used my Gypsy™ and the Gypsy Wanderings™ "cartridge" for this whole card. As always, I am happy to email you the .gypsy file if you would like.

I used Core'dinations card stock. I meant to emboss one of the layers with Swiss Dots™ and totally forgot! But like Robyn at My Pink Stamper says, "If I wanted it to be perfect, I'd buy it at the store". So, I still love my Hoppy Birthday card. :)

I welded the bunny in the grass shadow to the card base (which is a shadow of a tag) in light pink.
Then I cut the bunny in the grass shadow again in dark pink.
Next I cut the bunny in the grass (regular) in olive green - my favorite color!
I used some basic shapes for the middle of the card, some white and black ribbon and black adhesive gems and voila! Hoppy birthday!

Don't forget to "hop" over to the Cuttlebug Challenge for a chance to win her Punny-licious stamp set! What a great prize! Thanks so much, Robyn!

Be Inspired #99 - My Pink Stamper and Our Anniversary!

On September 1st two years ago, I married the man of my dreams and the love of my life. So, Happy Anniversary, husband! The years that I have been with you have been the best of my life.

I am so excited to share this card that I made for him with all of you!

At the Cuttlebug Challenges this week, Robyn at My Pink Stamper™ is our sponsor! I received some stamps from the Family and Friends™ line. I was so excited to use the stamp that says, "Love Always". I just love the font! I can't say enough about My Pink Stamper™ stamps. They are the best quality stamps I have used to date. I will definitely be buying more especially now that she has come out with some for the holiday seasons. Go check them out! They're about to start shipping! :) She has a total of 12 stamp sets out. They're all so much fun! I think Buggy Punnies™ is still my favorite.
The stamp sets were an original idea by Robyn made to coordinate with your Cricut® cartridges.

Anywho, back to the card... I used the Sweethearts Cartridge™ for all of this and separated out the layers on my Gypsy™ so that I could weld the blackouts of the car together to make a card, hide certain features, and only cut out one of the color that I wanted (you'll know what I mean if you look at the cut in the handbook for the layers). I used Core'dinations™ card stock and some acetate to create the window - you can't tell as much that there is a clear window from the picture, but you'll have to take my word on it ;).

The only paper that isn't Core'dinations™ is the shiny paper that the license plate is made out of which is Bazzill™ Diamond Glaze card stock.

I used the My Pink Stamper's Family and Friends™ set to stamp Love Always on the license plate.

I ran the light blue layer through the Cuttlebug using the Love is in the Air Emboss Folder Set™. Embossing is gorgeous on Core'dinations card stock, don't you think?

Glue all the pieces together, add some adhesive pearls, and voila! You're done! :)

Go and play in the challenge over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! My Pink Stamper™ is generously giving away a set of her Punny-licious™ stamps to the winner!

I hope you all have a beautiful day and tell someone you love them whether it be parent, sibling, best friend, or spouse.
