Two Challenges, One Card

Thought I might get some multi-tasking in today by combining two challenges on one card!

So, I used the sketch from CPS....

And the colors from the Color Throwdown......

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.

Thanks for popping by and have a great weekend!

2S4U- Laura's Sketch 46

Hi there!

It is my first post since I got my CRICUT!! I am soooo excited, I haven't been able to do anything but play with my new toy!

So, my first card with the help of my little Cricut friend is for the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge.

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.

365 Cards- Day 347 {white space}

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.

Pretty simple.

Have a super day,

Be My Valentine -CPS

Hi there,

Just a little Valentine card to share, based on the CPS sketch for the week.....

It is a pretty CAS sketch so I kept my card CAS.

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.

Thanks for stopping by and have a super week!

I had a little sleepy head baby this morning. She was out visiting last nite and slept in until 10am! So, I took full advantage and made a few cards.

First is Day 340-Shape Up....using hearts on the card.

And the second card is for Day 341- Substitution Please...use a heart in place of a blossom.

I may even get another done before the day is out!

Thanks for looking and have a super weekend,

Card Patterns Sketch 49- Love You

Good day all!

This is the sketch from Card Patterns for the week.

And here is my version.

I used some patterned paper from My Mind's Eye All Boy's stack. The sentiment is computer generated with the Circus font and cut out with my Spellbinders labels die. The button is made from chipboard cut with the Cuttlebug and painted with acrylic paint and sealed with Mod Podge. The ribbon is from Micheal's and the eyelets are from the dollar store.

Have a great day and take care!

365 Cards Day 339- Love Is In the Air

Don't cha just LOVE Valentine's Day?!?!

I have been in Valentine's mode for awhile- let's face it, since Christmas, lol!

The challenge today at 365 Cards is to use the word "love" in the sentiment of your card. Easy-peasey!

I used a love ding-bat that I downloaded in anticipation of the arrival of my CRICUT!!! I am super excited. I used MS Paint to color the hearts and printed it on pink card stock. Then sentiment is from a Doodlebug stamp set.

That's all for now! See you soon and thanks for taking a peek.
