Wild Card Friday!

Happy Friday! Here are today's cards. The first one is the Circle card. #17 in the book.

When I looked at this card and saw the "Oh Happy Day", all I could think about is how excited my daughter is getting the closer it gets to her graduation date. So, I decided to make it a graduation card for one of her friends. I used their school colors of orange, black and white. I used fit to page and cut it out at 4". After it was all assembled, I used my signo white gel pen to do some faux stitching and some dots on the letters. The graduation cap is a glitter sticker from Reminisce.

Supplies Used:
Cricut (Wild Card Cartridge)
ATG 714
Signo Gel Pen
Sticker (Reminisce)
Ribbon (Offray)
White Cardstock (Georgia Pacific)

The second card today is the Thanks card. #18 in the book.

I love the shape of this card. I think it is so cute! I used fit to page and everything was cut out at 6 1/4" except for the hat. I cut the hat out at 5" and then used some dimensionals to pop it off the card.

Supplies Used:
Cricut (Wild Card cartridge)
Cuttlebug (Traffic Jam)
ColorBox Fluid Chalk (Blue Lagoon)
Stickles (Orange)
Ribbon (Offray)
White Cardstock (Georgia Pacific)
Stampin' Up! (Dimensionals)

Wild Card Friday!

Happy Friday! I don't know about you guys, but I am so ready for the weekend. :) The cards made with the Wild Card Cartridge this friday are the All in One #15 in the book and the Tweety #16 in the book.

The All in One is a gift card holder. I played around with this one so I could get an accurate meaurement that a gift card would fit in. The size that I found to work best was 4 1/4". The gift card does fit a little snug but it is a really good fit.

Here is what it looks like opened up:

The next card is the Tweety #16 in the book. I cut this one out at 5 1/4".

I used the border punch along the top of the liner and then wrapped some DMC yellow floss around it before I attached it to the card front. Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and take a look at my blog. I really appreciate it! :)

Supplies Used:
DCWV (Sweet Chocolate Frosting and Nusery Boy Glitter Chicks)

You Give Me Butterflies

Good morning! Over at Paper Therapy this week is a color challenge. Below is a list of the colors we had to use:

I am a newbie to Stampin' Up! products, so my collection from them isn't quite what I want it to be just yet. Believe me, I am working on it though! haha! I did my best trying to match the colors as close as I could with papers I had in my stash. This is what I came up with:

I used my Straight from the Nest cricut cartridge and cut the butterfly and its layers out at 3". The phrase was then cut out at 2". I was a little scared about these colors at first, but I am quite pleased with how the card turned out. Thanks for taking the time to stop in and take a look!

Thinking Of You

Here is the card I made for the My Pink Stamper Challenge (Pink, Green and Black). I had so much fun playing along. I have never worked with this color combination before so this was quite the challenge for me, but I think the card came out so cute! I just love it! I wanted Piglet (cut at 4") to hold a flower, so I free hand cut a stem out of my scrap green paper and attached a prima flower to it. Voila! Thanks so much for taking the time to stop in and take a look!

Wild Card #13 and #14

Hello All! I hope everybody's weekend is going well. So sorry I am late in posting this....again! My kiddos being on Spring Break has completely threw my schedule off track.

Here are the next 2 cards in my Wild Card series. The First one is #13 Tied Up in the book. I used fit to page and everything was cut out at 2 3/4".

The second on is #14 triangle in the book. I have to say, so far, this card is my least favorite. I just don't know what to do with it. :( Again, I used fit to page and everything was cut out at 6 1/4".

Thanks for taking the time to stop in and take a look!

MojoMonday Week 133

Happy Tuesday! It was very bright and hot here today. About 90 degrees. A little warm for the beginning of April. I can't complain though, I would rather be hot than cold. I stayed inside basking in the cold air from the AC and was able to make my card for MojoMonday Week 133. I got the free digital stamp from Frugal Ideas from the Parsonage I had a lot of fun coloring the image and working with the sketch from Mojo Monday. Thanks for taking to time to stop by and take a look!

Supplies Used:

Martha Stewart (Floral Lace Border Punch)
Stickles (Diamond)

Wild Card 11 and 12

Happy Monday! I am so sorry I did not get around to posting these on Friday. I woke up on Friday with a very sore neck, must have slept on it wrong, and then with Easter weekend and my kids starting Spring Break, things have just been a little crazy. :)

Here are the next 2 cards in the Wild Card Series. The first one is #11 in the book called Swoop. I used the fit to page feature on my expression and got the measurement of 4". Everything was cut out using that measurement. I think this card came out really cute.

The second card is #12 in the book called Leaf. There are so many possibilities for this window card. I went ahead and went with the Autumn, but I love window cards and I really think I will be using this card base quite a bit. I used fit to page on my expression and got the measurement of 6 1/4". I cut everything out at that size EXCEPT for the little leaf icons. They were cut out at 2" each.

Thanks for taking the time to stop in and take a look! Have a great day!
