Dynamic Duos #31 {Light Green and Red} Challenge

2012-12-03 16.39.46For this week’s dynamic duos challenge we were to use certainly celery and real red.  I decided to pull out my Winter Frolic cricut cartridge and create a card for a friend.  She is an animal advocate, so I thought this would be the perfect card for her for the holidays.  I used Authentique paper and cut the shapes at 3 inches.  I also used the sentiment that comes with the image and cut it at 2 inches.  I added wiggley eyes and lots of diamond dust stickels to help make it sparkle. I think it came out cute. Sorry if my camera washed the colors out a little.

Operation Write Home Sketch Challenge 144

Well we survived Hurricane Sandy. Lost power for a day and some tree damage
but we were lucky compared to others.
I made two cards for this challenge. One for a female and one for a male. I find
male cards hard to design. This sketch was a lot of fun. I plan on using
it again.
Please feel free to leave a comment. I love reading them and appreciate
your input. You can find the OWH post here

Operation Write Home Midweek Challenge Celebrate Friendship

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.

Midweek Throwdown Color Challenge at OWH

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.
