Operation Write Home Midweek Throwdown Winter Fun

2012-10-14 20.00.41This week OWH challenged us to make Winter themed cards that are fun for our heroes to send home
to their family and friends! I made both of these cards using the Cricut Very Merry Tags cartridge.  I had a lot of fun using this cartridge and plan on making several other cards from the cuts on it.  I used a little liquid pearl to add a bit of pop to the snowflake and his eyes.  The second card is a try fold card. I used my cuddlebug snowflake folder for the background.  I made the button with a Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment on the first card is a Fiskars stamp.

I plan on making a few more of these to include in my box of cards to OWH.

Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge Celebrate Friendship

Hi,
I hope everyone is having a great week. It is hard to believe October is almost over.

This week OWH has challenged us to make friendship cards for our troops to send home.

I made this card using the Country Life Cricut cartridge. I cut the little pig and hen at 4 inches. I added liquid pearls to the pig , hen and sun for dimension.  I also used glossy accents. The paper for the background is from the cricut celebrations paper pack. The ticket stamp is a Close to My Heart stamp and the little tag and sentiment is from teeny tag sentiments by  My Creative Time. The finished card measures 5.50 by 4.25.

I love to get feedback, so please feel free to leave a comment.

Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge at OWH

This week at Operation Write Home there  is a color challenge using Red & Green! We’re to make cards using the colors Red & Green for our heroes to send home to their family and friends!  I used Cricut Snow Friends cartridge to make my snowman cut at 3 inches. I added a little stickles to the snowflake on his shirt to give it a little shimmer. The paper was from a holiday pack I got last year.

Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Trains, Planes and Automobiles

Hi all,

I am loving this wonderful weather here in NJ.  I was inspired to create this card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge when I watched some neighbor children skateboarding today.  We were to create a card using a form of transportation.  I did not want to do the usual modes of travel so I thought skateboarding would be a great alternative.  Hope you enjoy it.  I used the cricut cartridge Everyday Paper Dolls and CTMH stamp It’s Your Day for the sentiment.

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge 34 color inspiration

I am submitting this card in the Peachy Keen Stamps challenge 34 color inspiration. The little gnomes are one of their mini stamps. I colored them with Tombow dual brush pens and added a little stickles to give the card a little glimmer.

Halloween trifold card

Hi everyone,
I hope your week is going well.
I am working on some Halloween cards for a fun swap at My Fun Crafts.
I was inspired to make trifold cards from a video on Craft e Corner.
My ghost is from Cricut cartridge Paper Doll Dress Up. The cute face is a Peachy Keen stamp. The paper is from my stash from last year. I used Martha Stewart embossing powder for the BOO inside the card.
Hope you have a great first week back to school. Halloween will be here before we know it.
PS. I just received my Fiskateer scissors from Fiskars, a wonderful free gift for becoming a Fiskateer, #9430. Thankyou Fiskars!!!Halloween trifold card

VCMP for OWH, ODBD challenge #1

ODBD challenge #1 for OWHI made this card for Operation Write Home’s Labor Day hop.  ODBD is sponsoring our first challenge.  We were to make a card with an encouraging sentiment.  I love making cards for OWH and encourage you to join us in this very rewarding endeavor.  Helping our troops stay in touch with their  love ones is one way of saying thankyou for all they do.

For this card I used the Martha Stwewart butterfly stamp. The sentiment is an Inkadinkado stamp.  I love this sentiment.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend.  Enjoy the three days off.  I know I am.

Diaper Cakes

 I made these diaper cakes for my daughter’s baby shower.  The theme was all about books and since her nickname is “bug” I included some “love bugs”.
