Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend.  It has been Super Hot here in North Florida, and as much as I love the beach and pool, on days this hot and humid, crafting in air conditioning is so much more enjoyable 🙂

Since our move I am still re-arranging my “Craft World” and finding some really fun supplies that I haven’t used in awhile, along with some new items too.

So these cards have been made with fun color inks from different manufacturers.  The greens, bright blue and purple are Memento Dye inks, and the red, dark blue and yellows are from Stampin’ Up.

All the stamps used are from the new Stampin’ Up Flower Patch set that also has the matching thin dies that you can run through a Sizzix or a Cuttlebug machine.

The white cardstock is from Close To My Heart, that was embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder from Anna Griffin.

The great thing about making cards like these is that you can use them for any occasion.  It’s just when you stamp your inside sentiment that you make it a certain kinda card such as birthday, anniversary, thinking of you…..  But these cards were made for Birthdays.

I think I need to keep staying cool in my “Craft World” ~  Come back for a visit to see what I create for my next card.

Hello My Friends,

Today I want to share with you a handmade coffee cup birthday card that I made for my brother-in-law.  I have seen lots of cards in the shape of a coffee cups like the ones you would see at your local coffee shop, and I thought that would be a fun idea for a birthday card.  Well after looking at all of my Cricut Cartridges, would you believe that I did not have that cartridge?    So here is where a little imagination and some creativity comes in.

Using the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge, Gypsy and Cricut Expression machine,  I made a coffee cup card.

I cut the shape in blackout mode of the refrigerator, yup, you read that correctly the refrigerator.  All I did was cut the two small legs off the bottom and I had the shape of a coffee cup.  I was enclosing a gift card into this card so i just made sure when sizing this card that the card would fit inside without sticking out.  Using the Gypsy I welding the sides together which made a card.  All I needed to do is fold in the center.

As I am writing this post and looking at the From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge booklet and  I am laughing because I could have just used the shift function and I would have got the same image and wouldn’t have had to cut off the legs. 🙂

Anyway I increased the size and cut it out again but his time with a brown cardstock.  Then using a paper cutter (or you could use a scissor) just snipped off the top pf the refrigerator shape to make it look like a lid.  It looked good but seeing pictures of coffee cup lids they had some curve to it, so I took a small oval paper punch and with one punch on each side did the trick of looking like a lid.  Then added a piece of raffia for a little extra dimension.

For the bottom half of the coffee cup took the brown cardstock, cut a strip that would wrap around the entire card (just like the cup wrap you would get in a coffee shop so you don’t burn your hands on the hot cup)  ran that strip through the Cuttlebug with embossing folder.  Final touch was the circle birthday sentiment, circle punch then applied with a pop dot.

~ Happy Birthday Harry ~

Hello My Friends,

My Godson’s birthday is this month and I wanted to make him a special card.  He loves cookies and we sent him a big box of Oreo cookies as part of his present.  As I was looking the box it gave me a great idea.  Make a Oreo cookie card.

The Picture didn’t come out that good but the card looked great!

I made the cookie using the Cricut Expression along with the Mini Monograms Cricut Cartridge.  The circle scallop shape was great  for the cookie top and bottom and just a circle for the cream.  Also using the Cuttlebug I embossed the top with the polka dot embossing folder.

Then to make it a personal cookie instead of cutting out the letters for Oreo I used the Plantin SchoolBook Cricut Cartridge and cut out Tyler’s name for the top of the cookie.  Attached the top and bottom with a mini brad.

Looking at this picture as I am writing this post is making me want a big glass of milk and some cookies 🙂

Wishing Tyler A Very Happy Birthday!

Hello My Friends,

Have you ever made a card and when it was complete said to yourself or out loud “Wow that looks Fantastic”?  Well, I just did 🙂

Having a Handstamped Birthday Card Idea along with Cricut Card Idea can only turn out to be Wonderful!

Using just two stamps from Stampin’ Up, a few paper punches from Stampin’ Up and Marvy Uchida , Cuttlebug with polka dot embossing folder, Cricut Expression machine, Lovely Floral Cricut cartridge, cardstock from The Paper Cut, and some pearl embellishments from Jolee.

When I was done with the stamping and layering of this card it looked great but it needed just one more thing.  I had to add an image from the Lovely Floral Cricut lite cartridge.  The butterfly was perfect.  It added the final touch to this handmade birthday card.  And you know me, I love my Cricut 🙂

12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World

On the first Day of Christmas…

Making handmade Christmas Cards and Christmas Crafts while listening to Christmas Carols, does it getter better then this?  This year I wanted to make different kinds of Christmas Cards, what I mean is not all the same.  So for my first 12 cards I used a stamp set from Stampin’ Up that I got years ago.  I stamped the image using tuxedo black memento ink and colored in the design with Copic sketch markers.  I had some A2 cards that I purchased at Michaels that had such small wintry prints in soft blue and purple colors that I decided to use them.

For the inside sentiment I used a Merry Christmas stamp  from Uptown Rubber Stamp.

Of course that could have been all I needed to complete this Christmas card, but I had to add something else.  I decided what better then to layer cardstock.  I used my Cuttlebug with embossing folders. One layer was with a Snowflakes and the other layer with Swiss dots.  These embossing folders did the trick.  I then put them all together using my pink ATG adhesive gun.

Look how cute my first dozen Christmas Cards turned out.
