Dynamic Duos Color Challenge

2013-02-20 20.36.29Hi,

I made this card for the Dynamic Duo’s color challenge. We were to use the color combination turquoise and black. It is hard to see in my picture but the outfits were colored with turquoise and black. The stamps are from Close to My Heart.  I used Tombow dual brush pens and Recollections paper. I love the sentiment. It is sooo true. LOL

Male birthday card and OWH challenge using Silhouette

Hi,

Here is another birthday card I made for the OWH birthday challenge. I find male themed cards very hard to make. I think this one works great for a male birthday card. I used my silhouette and the print and cut feature to create the car card.  I purchased the car shape card from silhouette online store. If you haven’t tried the cut and print feature, I highly recommend giving it a go. There are 2013-02-04 14.42.112013-02-04 14.41.43a lot of videos on you tube that explain how it works. It really is very easy. The stamps for my card are from Close to My Heart. I paper pieced them on the card. I really like the way the card came out and plan on making one for my brother-in-law with his name on the license plate instead of USA.

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.

OWH Sketch Challenge #143 with Tonic Studios!

Operation Write Home along with Tonic Studios has challenged us to create a card for our Troops using sketch #143.

Here’s the sketch…

I decided to create a card with a winter theme. I used Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut cartridge for the snowflakes and the coordinating winter stamp for the sentiment.  I used cuddlebug snowflake embossing folder for the background.  I highlighted the embossed snowflakes with Tim Holtz embossing ink. I added liquid pearls to the snowflake to give it a little dimension and sparkle.  I embellished the bow with a crystal from Megan Elizabeth | Above Rubies Studio

I love the blue and white colors together. The card measures 4.25 by 5.50.

Comments are always welcome.

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.
