Holy Bat Signal, Batman!.....

I made this Batman card for a little friend who is turning 3 soon.  Three is such a fun age and this little guy is totally into Super Hero's.... POW!

It was a little  hard for me to keep this as a simple boy card.  I didn't think ribbons, buttons or glitter would go over to well for Batman so I just added some black adhesive brads.  Kind of reminds me of rivets you may see around a large light.

Here's how I made it on my Gypsy:

Art Philosophy- Card Base cut at 5.24 inches
Batman- Bat Signal/Shadow cut at 4.53 inches
Batman- 3 Font/Shadow cut at 2.25 inches
Stamp Sentiment- generic dollar bin
Adhesive brads

Valentines Bee Mine Treat Box.....

Pin It
  For the challenge this week at Cooking with Cricut, we want to see you create Anything but a
card using polka-dots and the color yellow!

Bee Mine Treat Box

Valentines Bee Mine Treat Box

This little "Bee Mine" treat box is cut from the Spring Holiday Cards cartridge.  I've had this cartridge for over a year now and have taken it out of the package only once to load it on my Gypsy-Eeeeek!  (Shhhh.. I'll admit, I'm a cartridge hoarder!).  This was the perfect challenge for me to finally bust it out and make a Valentines project while incorporating a cute bee to bring in the challenge color yellow. 

Valentines Multi-Fold Card Tutorial...

 Today I'm sharing a tutorial for The Paper Variety on how to make two different types of Multi-Fold Cards which are just perfect for Valentines Day.

These lil' multi-fold cards are simple to make and what I like about them the most, is they give you a reason to use up some of them purrty scrap pieces you've been hoarding piling up and can't seem to throw out 'cause you totally heart the collection.

Whenever I'm making these multi-fold cards, I'll repeat over and over to myself  "Measure Twice, Score Once", "Measure Twice, Score Once".   Even though I may think I'm a paper carpenter, I still make measurement errors...Ack!

The Best Kisses are Chocolate....

Welcome to the Link Up Love "Valentines" Party at Getting Cricky.   Today I'm linking up a little bowl of chocolate serendipity!   Yes, I intended this project to be something else but by happy accident it turned into this. The Best Kisses are Chocolate, right?

I was attempting to make the small ice cream cone/cupcake on Sweet Tooth Boxes and for some reason my cuts were off and the whole project wouldn't fit together. (Well, Duh..they need to be the same size to fit so- Duh again!) Let's face it though, the directions on that cartridge are not the easiest to follow. 

Simply Sunday Challenge....Let It Snow

( Second post of the day...Please scroll down for TPV challenge)

Welcome to Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge, Let It Snow.  We want to see your snow inspired project while adding some type of embossing to it.   

I turned this tuque hat into a quirky card using my Gypsy and the Creative Memories Cheerful Season cartridge.  I chose fun, bright colors and two different texture embossing folders for a mix-match look.  The quirky card is complimented with a stamped sentiment "I like your style"  from K. Andrew Designs-Fashionable Friends stamps.

The inside of the card is also stamped with another sentiment from  Fashionable Friends

Check out Kristal's Fashionable Friends Stamps.....so many fun ideas!

Rosette Photo Frame...

Welcome to the next challenge at  The Paper Variety.  For this challenge we want to see your paper rosette's, fan folds or medallion embellishments inspired by this photo.

I  love to make rosettes, especially rosette wreaths!  I gave this rosette picture-frame wreath to my parents for Christmas.   I mean, what else do you give two people for Christmas that don't need or want anything?  A picture of their Grand kids!

I used the Hoot-n-Holler Lite cartridge for my owl and sentiment cuts. 

The paper pack is Wild Saffron from K & Company. I just love this paper! I embellished the frame with various ribbons, gems, burlap, buttons and leaves. 

How cute are these little owls? The red owl represents my daughter and the green owl represents my son.

Thanks for looking and we look forward to you linking up your fan-fold projects at TPV. Remember you have 2 weeks to link your project.

Ice Skate Card...

Welcome to Cooking with Cricut Challenge # 68-Photo Inspiration.  The challenge this week is to see how this photo inspires your Cricut creativity.

When I saw this photo, my first thought was ice skating.  I know how to ice skate but I'm definitely not an ice skater nor did I grow up in the snow.   Also, if you look at the water it's not frozen so you can't really skate on it either-duh!    Anyways, an ice skate was my inspiration and I wanted to turn a skate into a shaped card.
I welded the ice skate together on my Gypsy using  the Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons cartridge.  I added a snowflake die-cut, laced the shoe with ribbon and stamped a  sentiment inside the card from K. Andrew Design-Winter Wishes Stamps.
We look forward to you linking up with  CWC to see how this photo inspires you. 
 Thanks for Looking!

Cardinal Card.......

    I like birds and have always enjoyed bird feeders but unfortunately, the only birds we attract  where I live are called "Sky Rats"...AKA as the Pigeon.  I even have spikes on the roof of my house!
 So, a paper Cardinal will have to do for now.    This card makes me think those pretty photos of a bright red Cardinal sitting on a bush in the snow. 

 Here's how I made it:
50 States Cartridge- Cardinal
Christmas Solutions- Evergreen bush
Paper Doll Dress Up- Snow Border
Embellishments: Red & White twine, wooden button and swirls embossing folder. 
Paper-Kraft paper, patterned cardstock , white glitter paper.

The Paper Variety Color Challenge.....Wish Upon a Star.

Pin It

Welcome to The Paper Variety and my first project as a new member of TPV design team.  Yeah!  Our first bi-weekly challenge of the New Year at TPV  is a color challenge.

I actually made two projects for this challenge.  Being my first project as a new design team member I started to over think, wanting to make a really great project but then I got the creativity block and couldn't create.  So, I looked though some inspiration that I keep and I found these stars that I've been wanting to make for sometime now .  I just love them and I'm going to hang them on my craft room wall.

The stars are cut from George and Basic Shapes at 11", 9" and 6 inches. I scored and ink the stars to add dimension and embellished with twine, buttons and stamped a "wish" sentiment from K. Andrews Designs.

We look forward to you linking up your color challenge project at TPV.  Check out the great prize to one lucky winner!

  Thanks for looking and remember our challenges now runs for 2 weeks! 
Happy New Year!
