Graduation Card

On Sunday, I spent time making cards for upcoming events. First of which is the high school graduation of my neighbor. This z-fold card was made using Recollections cardstock in black, purple and silver metallic paper. I embossed the silver paper using the Cuttlebug folder -Textile. The layered cap image is from the cart, EveryDay Pop Up. I stamped a sentiment on a tag which fits inside the fold. Thanks, Laverne from A Crafter 's Haven for the idea and the card making class.

White on White

On Saturdays, I take a Cricut class at A C Moore. Today's theme was White on White. Here is a Sympathy Card. Using a 5 x 5 card from AC Cardstock (on sale for $1 for 8 cards), I cut and embossed the background from the Paper Lace Cartridge at 4 inches.  In hindsight, I should have cut it at 4.5 inches, well anyhoo. The butterfly is from Embellished Florals cut at 1.5 inches and also embossed. The sentiment was cut from Wild Card at 3.5 inches, heat embossed and placed with a pop-up pop dot (try saying that 5x fast). Pretty quick card to make. I love the white on white. In the process of finishing up another, so look for part 2 coming soon!

Happy Unbirthday? My Creative Time Throwback Challenge

Ok... so I used the Doodlebug Cartridge party hat image. I used George and Basic Shapes sentiment space and the background shapes. There is also the blue that had to show up somewhere on the card. This card was so easy, when I read the challenge statement, I immediately thought, "Hey, I think I can do this!" What's missing is the sentiment...so it is my "Happy UNBirthday Card". This is my first challenge on someone's blog. By the way, I think I will add some blue bling to the other hats. If you couldn't tell, I kinda like bling, hee hee!

Mother's Day #3

Mother's Day Card #2

Mother's Day Card Sketch Challenge 330

This is my very first CRICUT card that I created for submission. I submitted this card as a part of a sketch challenge. I love working with sketches. It makes it a little easier for me to design cards. I used an old Penny Black stamp...(I used to stamp a long time ago), turquoise and orange cardstock, some bling and OH NO, I forgot which cartridge I used to cut out the flowers. Well, I don't have that many yet. I believe that it was Plantin Schoolbook but I will make sure of that. I hope the picture is clear since I am using a substitute (my camera was stolen). I have a few more Mother's Day Cards to post even though it is after the fact.
