2015-08-28; Cricut fun day…simple pop up card, or not.


The next card we made when Maggi came over for our Cricut Fun Day was this Christmas card. It looks simple but we did have trouble navigating our way through the pop-up. It took quite a while and many cookies for us to figure out the fold ;-)

Here is what mine ended up as, I added one of the die cut designs to decorate the front of the card and a simple $1 stamp for the sentiment.

Here you can see the opened card where I added the internal pop-up. I also added DSP and another sentiment this time by TAC.

Here you can see that although it is a pop-up, my version only stands out away from the card just a bit. Still nice looking in the blue and white though.

This card was cut using the cartridge Simple Pop-ups at 4.5″ We cut the pieces down to fit a 4×4″ card.

Thanks for stopping by today!

2015-08-27; Craft Day & Cricut Fun


Last Sunday I invited Ms. Maggi over for some crafty Cricut fun. I’ve had this card cut out for quite a while but it was never put together so I could share, until now.

I love how it turned out. We cut it from the cartridge Elegant Edges at 5″. I used the book feature to get the pretty scallop edge on the front of the card.

We did stamp just one sentiment on the front. This is a $1 stamp by Studio G.

I inadvertently cut out too many pieces so I will be making one or two more of these. I have three more cards to share from our craft day so be sure to stop back!

2015-08-26; Bird tag swap


Today I have a swap tag to share with you. I used an embossing folder to add the flowers and bird. The embossing didn’t show up on the card stock very well so I added chalk and some outlining.

I also stamped part of a sentiment (by Stampin’ Up); unfortunately the whole sentiment just didn’t fit. I did add it to the back of the tag though.

the little bird is embossed too. I colored him up, outlined him and then added some real feathers.

Which brings us back to the beginning….

to finish the tag off I added glitter glue, sequins, fibers, and a cloth bow.

Thanks for stopping by today!

2015-08-25; August Stamp Camp; Project #5 & review


And my last card to share with you from the August stamp camp is this lovely tree. I stampsed the tree and added the sentiment when I got home.

When I was adding the sentiment; I found this cute little bow laying on my desk. I have an embellishment box and it must have flipped out and landed on my desk. It adds a lot to the tree!~

2015-08-24; August Stamp Camp Project #4 Hello my friend


On today’s sample we used a die cut, washi tape and 2 rubber stamps. I love the clean simple look of this card!

2015-08-19 (9)

We stamped the hello first. Next we took the piece to the die cut machine and then cut out the star.

Finally we added DSP behind the star and then popped up the white panel using 3-d mounting tape.

Easy, quick and eye-catching. Just the way I like it, uh huh, uh huh.

2015-08-23; August Stamp Camp Project #3 Fall is a commin’


Today I have a very fall colored card that we made at the August Stamp Camp. We used a brayer to add the background color. I am very brayer challenged, so I’m glad we did this style of card so I could practice.

2015-08-19 (12)

The other technique that we did on this card is the mirror image. We stamped on acetate then just rubbed it on the card stock under the original image. Very fun and it added a lot of interest to our card.

And one last look before you go on about your day….

I still have another card or two to share so be sure to stop back!

2015-08-19; August Stamp Camp Project #1


This past week I went to the August Stamp Camp. We got to make 5 cards this month and today I’ll be sharing two of them. Here they are:

These are fun cards whether for Christmas or any theme really. They show how you can take scraps of DSP and make a eye-catching design. Here is a close up of the first one.

And now the other…
