Hope you are having a great day ~ I need to make a handmade birthday card today for my dearest friend.  I wanted a birthday card that would make her smile, nothing serious just a fun card.  So I had a great Cricut Card Idea, using my Gypsy and that great cartridge download Smiley Cards, and I believe that I have a winner.  I also used my Cricut Expression machine to cut this tea cup out.

Look how cute this tea cup turned out.

I made a tea bag label with beige cardstock and stamped happy birthday with a Hero Arts stamp set. I layered the tea cup onto first lavender Stampin Up cardstock, that was then layered onto polka dot paper from  DCWV the summer stack paper pack, then one more layer on burgundy cardstock that I also used a border punch by EK Success that has birthday candles.  I used gold stickles for the flames of each candle and then also used Martha Stewart Opaque white marker for the base of the candle.

This is just another great Cricut Card Idea that is sure to be a keeper in your handmade card file.  You don’t need alot of paper for this tea cup so you can use up some scraps that you have laying around if you like.

Make it a Great Day and don’t forget to leave time to Craft!

12 Days of Christmas with Joans Craft World

On the third day of Christmas…..

Today we are creating Cricut covers for 2 year planners.

This is so much fun.  I will be using the Cricut Expression machine,  Cricut Doodlecharms cartridge, Cuttlebug with embossing folders and paper from DCWV called the Sweet stack.

Ooops I forgot also a 2 year day planner calendar.  I found these planners by Studio18.  They are so cute because of all the themes that they have.  Since I decided to make cupcakes Studo18 had a cupcake planner with each month showing a different decorated cupcake.  So all I did was decorate the outside cover.

First I cut with my Cricut Expression machine the cupcakes at 2″.   For the icing of the cupcake I used pastel colored cardstock and for the bottom paper wrapper I used craft paper.

Now comes the really fun part.  I used three embossing folders with my Cuttlebug to add some dimension to these cupcakes.    For the bottom wrapper I used the forest branches embossing folder.  I put the craft cardstock that looks like the wrapper into the embossing folder sideways so the lines of the branches really looks like a cupcake.  For the icing I used the new polka dot embossing folder and also the spots & dots.

These were so much fun to make and are going to be fantastic Christmas stocking “stuffers” for our family and friends this holiday.
