CTMH Dragonfly Frame Card

I have here a cute dragonfly card I made with my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge. I cut the card base and the frame at 4.75" and the dragonfly that goes on top at 3.75". I embossed the front of the card and the wings of the dragonfly with my Cuttlebug. I inked the edges of the frame and dragonfly. I used Viva Decor gold pearl pen to make some eyes and some lime green Stickles to give the dragonfly some sparkle. I have not decided on a sentiment yet, so I will leave that part to later when I have a recipient or occasion for this card. This card is pretty simple and quick to make. It can easily be mass produced.



I will enter this card into the challenges at:
My Creative Time- use a frame challenge
Simon Says Stamps Challenge -anything goes
Paper Play Time - anything goes.

Have a Crafty week!

Sock Monkey Cards

I decided to make this monkey for a couple of animal challenges and an anything goes challenge. He is the cute little sock monkey on the B is for Boy cartridge. He is cut at 4". I made three of these cards and stamped different sentiments of each one. I like how they all turned out. These will be great for friendship, birthdays, baby boy and much more. I inked the edges of the blue gingham card and the cream strip of paper.

I colored the butterfly with chalk and added some pink Stickles.


My card is 5.5x5.5" and the butterflies were stamped using a Martha Stewart butterfly set. The sentiment is from Close To My Heart (comes with 36 sentiments & images).
Sorry the light is awful in the pictures (its a dark rainy day here, no sunlight really).
Thanks for dropping by!

Lovely Layout

Hello Crafty friends, 


Today is a special post as I am submitting this Mother's Day layout I made to a Design Team Call at Bitten By the Bug 2












I just love how this turned out and the colors look fantastic together. I will be putting this into a white shadow box frame and giving it to my mom for Mother's Day. 


Here are some details:
-Dress form cut from Cricut Nifty Fifties at 9". The dress is actually made of fabric (there is a cute fabric paper stack from DCWV)!!! I jazzed it up with some ribbons, ruffle lace and pearls. 
-The 3D butterfly is from Recollections.
-The layered flowers are from the Cricut Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge at various sizes. 
-The square shape doilies are cut at 3.5" from Cricut Art Philosophy (CTMH) and the two different scrolls are cut at 2.25 and 1.63.
-The stickers that say LOVELY are from the dollar bins at Target.
-The circle under the 5x7 photo mat was cut from Plantin at 7".
-The papers are from my stash. Many of them are glittery, iridescent or metallic which the camera doesn't do justice on their beauty. 


Have a Crafty day!

April Showers


Welcome back everyone!

I made this super cute card for a challenge over at Cardz TV. The them is April Showers (umbrella, rain boots, rain puddles, showers, etc). I've be wanting to use the umbrella cut on my Paisley cartridge for a while now and LOVED it. I will be using that cute more often now. I printed my own custom sentiment on a piece of velum and attached it to the card. I love the way velum looks on a project and since I didn't have a stamp with quite the right sentiment I was going for I decided to make my own. I cut the umbrella at 3.5 inches. I also added some iRocks jewels on the points of the umbrella where the end of the metal would be.



Baby Boy Duck Card

Hello Crafty friends,

I have here a cute little duck card that I made for my stash. I currently do not know anyone having a baby boy right now, but that didn't stop me from making it- LOL.







 Here is where I got the PKS eye from on the duck. I only stamped one eye on the duck (see how versatile the stamps are)


Supplies I used:
-K& Company- Chocolate Neapolitan Stack
-Peachy Keen Stamps- Critter Faces Set A Medium
-Cricut New Arrival
-Sizzix- Three Dots embossing folder
-Orange crinkle ribbon
-EK Sucess- Dotted Wave Edge puncher
-Sakura- Souffle pens and white gel pen
-Momento Brown ink
-Clear embossing powder
-My Pink Stamper sentiment

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
1. Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge - Challenge 14 Color Inspiration (red, orange, yellow, blue green).
2. Docerela Creations - Baby theme using pink or blue.
3. More Than Favors - Baby or Pregnancy theme

Green & Teal Mother's Day Card

Hello Crafty friends, 

I'd like to show you this pretty Mother's Day card I made. I stamped the flower with a CTMH stamp called Just For You. The coordinating flower base was cut from the exclusive Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge (the stamp and the Cartridge can be purchased through my CTMH shopping links). I also added some crinkle ribbon and used an EK border punch to create the bottom paper ruffles. I used CTMH inks to stamp the images. I think this card is pretty and turned out just like I was aiming for. I didn't want to stamp Happy Mother's Day on the front (I felt like it would take away from the card if I put it on one of the ruffles  (punched borders layers at the bottom). I think I like it better without a sentiment on front (which could have been stamped inside as an alternative). I used a My Pink Stamper sentiment.







I will enter into the following challenges:
1. Pumpkin Spice -use green, a stamp & ribbon
2. Little Scrap Pieces -use some type of flower(s)
3. My Pink Stamper -Mother's Day theme

CTMH Flower Thank You Cards

Hello there,
Hope your weekend is off to a great start! I have some Thank You cards that I made to show you today. It seems like you can never have too many Thank You cards in your stash. As it turns out I'm always running low on those, so I try to make some when ever I can...which is never enough-lol. The beautiful flower was made using a Close To My Heart Stamp called JUST FOR YOU (#B1398, comes with 7 stamps for only $9.95). Also some of the ink colors used are also close to my heart. The CTMH Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge was also used to cut the flower out and then I stamped it with the coordinating CTMH stamp. I love there products and the quality of them is fantastic. In short, I did some Cuttlebugging, ink embossing, pop dotting, background stamping, and adding some ribbon.
I am entering this card into the following challenge: Simon Says Stamp Challenge - April Showers Bring Spring Flowers.
