Having Fun With The Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

I am having so much fun with this Cricut Cartridge.  I have been seeing a lot of crafty bloggers talk about this exclusive Cricut Cartridge only available through Close To My Heart.

So, I had to find a demonstrator in my area¬†and order this cartridge and get in on all the fun.¬† This was such a good purchase.¬† I think you have heard me say that before ūüôā

There are so many images 700 to be exact, and the Pop-Up cards are too cool.  With Halloween coming up in the next few weeks I decided to play with this pop up function.  Using my Cricut Expression it cut perfectly.  The folding was a little tricky at first but with my score board it make it easier.

The inside of this card is so cool I don’t want to put anything on the outside but it looks sooo boring, so I decided to just make it super simple, and here is what I came up with.

Stickles added the perfect “bling” to this card.¬† I might have to add some to the inside too.¬† Anyway, thanks for stopping by and hope you have a Happy Halloween.

A Simple Handstamped Birthday Card For A Cat Person

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Every time that I make a greeting card I take a few pictures.  Well my file is getting really big, which means that I have not shared with you all of my fun creations.

This card was for my sister-in-laws birthday.  She loves cats, plus her cat is really fluffy like the cat in this rubber stamp by Stampabilities.  I wanted to keep the card simple, yet not boring so I embellished with some ribbon from Ribbon Trends and the small flower that I made with the Flower Shoppe Cricut cartridge and Cricut Expression machine.

Using Copic sketch markers I just outlined the image and it gave it just the right amount of color.  The very muted background was done with a sponge dauber and memento inks.

I have heard this saying before and I thought it was really funny but didn’t have a stamp, so I used my own handwriting and wrote the sentiment on the front of the card as well as the inside.¬† The rest of the saying inside reads… The more you have the more you want to gag.

The smile on the cat¬†is so confident and is telling us that, I am cute and I know it ūüôā

Handmade Confirmation Card Using the Cricut Expression

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

Today I want to share with you a Handmade Confirmation Card that I made for our Godson Tyler.

I wasn’t sure how to go about making this card since I really didn’t have any rubber stamps for Confirmation, but I wanted it to be simple yet perfect.¬† Looking around my “craft world” I saw some American Crafts bakers twine and of course my Cricut Expression machine.¬† I knew that there had to be an image of the Holy Spirit in one of my many Cricut Cartridges, and I found it.¬†¬†Using the Life is a Beach Cricut Cartridge, and the images of seagulls would work great.

Cutting the image onto white cardstock using the Cricut Expression and then layered onto a strip of craft paper that I wrapped in the bakers twine.  I then computer generated the wording and printed on the same white cardstock that I used for the Holy Spirit (seagull).  One more layer of red cardstock and I think this card turned out just the way I expected.  The Cricut never lets me down, another great Cricut card idea!

For the inside I layered the same white on red with the computer generated message.¬† I forgot to take the picture before I wrote my personal message inside so that’s why the picture is cropped ūüôā

Today is “Talk Like a Pirate Day” ~ Ahoy Mattey

Hello My Fellow Crafters,

AHOY MATEY ~ Today is Talk Like A Pirate Day and I wanted to share with you a really fun Cricut Card Idea that I made to celebrate the occasion.

talk like a pirate day 2013

This little pirate was made with the 3 Birds on Parade Cricut Cartridge.  I think this cartridge is soooooo fun!

After cutting him all out and putting him together I decided that his sword needed some shine, so just added some silver stickles and  now it  looks great.

Then had some scrap Kraft paper and so I literally tore it up to look like land, sponged some Rich Cocoa (Brown) Memento ink onto the edges for more of a dimensional look.

For the background of the ocean all I did was take the other end of the scrap paper that I tore and used it as a stencil and lightly sponged Bahama Blue Memento ink onto the white card cardstock.

~ Enjoy Your Day Matey ~
