Continuing from yesterday’s posts, I made a couple of cute thank you cards.  I used the Imagine More Cartridge to make the focal die cuts.  The first one is called Merci Bear-Coup.  I added flock to the bear to make him look furry, liquid pearls for added detail and ribbon to finish it off.

the card measures 5 X 5 square.

 

The second thank you card is called Thanks a latte.  It is a much smaller card measuring 3 3/4 X 5 inches.  To make the words and the cup stand out I embossed with clear embossing powder.  Unfortunately it is hard to see the detail of the embossing.  Guess I’ll have to figure out how to take a better picture.  More to learn!  Stitching was done by pen to outline the base of the card.  To finish I added liquid pearls and ribbon.

A great card to give to a friend

Tomorrow I’ll post the friendly note cards!  Thanks for looking!

Happy Bird Day!

I’ve been experimenting with my Cricut Imagine this last week and have made several new cards. While I was playing, I cut out several images from the Imagine More Cards cartridge. Of course I had to print and cut out all the layers and put them together. At first I thought I would just save the completed die cuts for when I needed them but after thinking about it, I decided that I would either lose or forget where I put them. At any rate, I decided that in order to not lose them, I had better figure out how to use them. Here is the first card,

I was really pleased with the color and thought the little bird was quite adorable. The card is 51/2 X 4 inches. I cut the mat at 5 X 3 3/4, added the ribbon, bow and a few rhinestones to glitter it up!

The second card is also a birthday card. I layered the die cut then pop dotted the die cut for dimension. I had to search my stash to find the right paper for the mat, rounded the corners and added liquid pearls to complete the card. The card measures 5 1/2 X 4 inches.

Thanks for looking! More to come this week!

Sophie Anniversary Card

Saturday was my 34th wedding anniversary!  I made this card for my husband.  I used the Circle exclusive Sophie cartridge. This is one cartridge I am so glad to have. It is full of cards for all occasions.   I found exactly what I wanted on page 22 of the booklet.  I thought the lovebirds would be cute but also more elegant for the occasion.  I cut the card base at 5 1/2″ by 8 1/2″ from the cream color cardstock from the  DCVW Shimmer stack.  I also cut the liner at 2 3/4″ by 4 1/4″  from the  DCVW Mariposa stack. I got out my Cuddlebug and embossed the card using the Divine Swirl embossing folder.  Next, I used chalk to bring the embossing to life and inked the edges of the card with a dark blue.  Time to move to the inside.  I glued the liner to the upper  inside of the card.   I couldn’t find a stamp that I thought would work for this, so I went to my Creative Memories Storybook Creator software.  I created a custom sentiment for the inside to  print.  A little trimming and I was done.  I hope you like it!

A Very Busy Fall!

It is midway through October and I finally have some time to post what I’ve been doing lately.  I been busy making diecuts and working with Boardmaker visuals to complete some new bulletin boards for our class.  They are finally done!

The first bulletin board is outside our classroom and is there to showcase our little ones art.  Basically all I did was get out my Cricut, my Speaking of Fall cartridge and cut the title.  Here’s a picture of the Bulletin Board and a close up showing the details on the title.
