2017-03-17; Creative Cards Cartridge by Cricut, Card #5


You have just arrived in time to see Card # 5 in the series from the Cartridge Creative Cards.

2017-03-08  Creative Cards # 5 (3)

I let this flocked & glittered dp do all of the work for me.

The mini sentiment is by Hero Arts. I covered the tiny circle in crystal effects which is why there is a slight halo in the center. That is the ink reacting to the crystal effects. I’m never sure which ink will react with it, some do and some don’t.

What happened to card #4 you may ask?
I took Card # 4 with me to the March Shoe Box craft night.
You can see that design again HERE if you are interested.
I think the ladies really liked the tri-fold design.

Card # 3 in the series from the Cartridge Creative Cards

Another tri-fold card, this time a window. I did add a sheet of acetate to make window glass and a few additional punched leaves to the flower grouping.

Here is a close up of the flowers. I used a stylus on each bud and leaf section. The centers were filled with 3-d paint.

Now the 1st flap has been opened. The cat came from the cartridge Meow. The shelf was just free hand cut and placed using 3-d mounting tape to give it dimension. The flower pot is by Art Impressions and the leaves and vine are a Spellbinder die.

Now the 2nd flap is folded out & is fully opened.

A close up of the flower layers so you can see that each layer was sponged, molded, and then stacked for dimension.

2017-03-14; Creative Cards – Card #1 Swinging bird cage


Recently I received the cartridge “Creative Cards” I have been playing with it and enjoy the ready-designed sketches they have. For the next few days I’ll share a few of the cards.

this is the first card in the brochure style book that the cartridge comes with. The card base was cut at 5.25 inches, which was as large as it would go.

Here I’ve opened the 1st flap of this tri-fold card.

2017-02-26 Creative cards -1 (2)

Second flap and now fully open

2017-02-26 Creative cards -1 (1)

In 2015 my girlfriend lent me her cartridge and at that time I made this sample…

Another sample: Bird in a cage

I have a few more of the cards from the cartridge made…stay tuned and I’ll share them shortly!

2017-03-12; Sewing theme


Today’s sample is another stamp from Sonia’s inheritance; $3 dress form.

2017-02-25 (1)

To keep with the sewing theme I added old eyelet lace & ric-rack along the borders. The background was made using dylusions spray inks. Once that was dry I over-stamped in black. The embossed background was done by using pre-printed DP and a Tim Holtz sewing theme embossing folder.

2017-03-11; Maggi’s 2nd card-morphed.


this is the 2nd card that I brought home in pieces from the March shoe box craft night. Nothing is glued down, but it does give you the general idea of what it would look like if finished.

2017-03-06 (5)

Sitting at my craft desk at home I added a few more pieces and embellishments and it morphed into this design. I kept all of the original elements to keep the flavor of what Maggi shared with us, I just added to it.

2017-03-06  morphed (2)

This close look at the package lets you see that I popped it up over the already popped up frame. I added crystal effects to each of the dots on the package, candle and background. I also embossed the white background with white dots.

2017-03-06  morphed (4)

The banner sentiment is actually a rub on that I brought home with me. I put it onto white card stock, cut the “tails” sponged, popped up and added dots that came from the same sticker page as the package and candle. You can see that I added crystal effects here too.

Thanks to Maggi for sharing all of her supplies with us!

2017-03-10; Maggi’s card, now morphed!


this is a photo of one of the cards that Maggi brought to our shoe box craft night this past week. The photo looks funny as I only laid the pieces out and nothing is glued down. Looking at it I knew I wanted to add a few more mats. I brought the pieces home and added to it just a bit.

2017-03-06 (4)

Here is what the design morphed into. I made sure to keep all of the original elements so that I would not lose the flavor of what Maggi shared.

2017-03-10  morphed (4)

I added this mat cut with my Cricut using the cartridge Creative Cards (Cut at 2-3/4″ & 3″) I then took the white mat and added Cuttlebug embossing. The cupcake and hat are pre-printed stickers. I added 3-d mounting tape and tiny gems.

2017-03-10  morphed (3)

Here is a close look at the banner. You can tell it’s hand cut 🙂 The sentiment is actually a rub on. I cut it into pieces and put it on two different banners. See the tiny gems? I added a gem to the center of each of the spots in the background.

And one more look at today’s card before you go on about your day………

Thank you Maggi for bringing this fun card for all of us at the shoe box group.
