Happy weekend all! Just wanted to pop in with this Father's Day card that I whipped up! I got so excited when I saw the prize at The Pink Stamper that I had to participate!!!
I used my Cricut Create and SCAL to make the oblong box with the sailboat cut out and then used a black marker in the Cricut to print the sentiment. I am really having fun with the new bug of my life. heehee.
The patterned paper is from a Me and My Big Ideas stack that I got at Micheal's a few weeks ago-lots of manly papers in it!
I cut the semi-circle with a Marvy punch and stuck the button in the blank spot. Easy as pie.
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! Chrissy
Oh my goodness, it has been a while! Not to make excuses, but... right after I got my Cricut I got SCAL and became obsessed with it! I was playing with it and getting to know how to use them together and the unthinkable happened!!! A computer virus. It was a bad one and my computer was gone for a few weeks. So, since then, I have been trying to recover all that was lost when the bug hit.
Also, in the same time frame were my 3 kids' birthdays and Easter, no kiddin'!
So, here we are, back in action.
I love love love the sketches at 2S4Y, so I thought I would humbly play along this week.
Here is the sketch...
And here is my little card... The papers are all from the DCWV Spring Stack, which, by the way, I picked up a Winner's for $11...it is 180 pages of cute! The cupcake is from Jane's Bakery at Squigglefly- with the glitter on top it looks good enough to eat. The ribbon and button are from Micheal's bargain bin and the label is cut with SCAL and my sweet little Cricut :) thanks for looking and hope to see you soon! Chrissy
And here is what happened........ I used some My Mind's Eye patterned paper for the background and sewed it on with my sewing machine. The two scalloped borders, the scalloped circle and the frames for the sentiment I cut out with my Cricut. The tree stamp is from a Hero Arts "Anyone Can Stamp" set and the "thanks!" is from a TPC sentiment set.
I used my Cricut to cut the butterflies and frame (heehee). I ran the larger butterflies through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder. The sentiment is from TPC and the ribbon is Offray from Walmart.
I have so many grand ideas running through my head to give the poor Cricut some exercise so I will be back soooon! Thanks for stopping by.
The challenge today at 365 Cards was to use this sketch and only embellish where the circle is- the rest is white space!
So, here goes!
The stamp is from the Colorbok Friendly Forrest set- I love that little deer! I just stamped her on a piece of card stock cut with my Spellbinders Label die. I stamped the little heart separately- it felt more Valentiney, then I added the little gem for the eye. The sentiment is computer generated.
I ran some white card stock through my Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots folder- just the bottom half of the card. Then I stitched the ribbon on with a bit of red embroidery thread. The X's remind me of kisses.
I made the heart and sentiment with MS Word and printed it on card stock. Then I cut it out with a scalloped circle Spellbinder. I stitched around the heart and around the scallops by hand.
