Bloom Breast Cancer Awareness Card

by Ginger on October 27, 2010

Breast Cancer Awareness Icon

In honor of Breast Cancer Awareness, I made a pink  Bloom card. I used the Country Life Cricut Cartridge to cut out the pitcher that’s holding the flowers.

The word Bloom was cut using the Storybook cartridge and the pink ribbon was cut using the Pink Journey cartridge. I used my Gypsy to make all the cuts at once. I love how the Gypsy lets you do that.

The card is a standard A2 size, which is 4 ¼ x5 ½. The word Bloom was cut at 1 ½ inches and the pitcher of flowers was cut at 3 ½ inches. I used some Anna Griffin paper for the card background and AC Moore pink cardstock for the card base.

Just wanted to share this little chipboard dress that I made for my sister’s birthday. The apron opens up and you can place a photo inside.

The chipboard dress and vintage hanger are from Crafty Secrets. They make a cute little boy outfit also.

Happy Monday! I just wanted to share a birthday card that I made for a friend who is turning 50.

I used my gypsy to cut the 50 and happy birthday. I love how you can design your card on the Gypsy using multiple cartridges. For this card I used Storybook for the 50 and Once Upon a Princess for the sentiment. The paper is from Making Memories Sabrina collection as well as AC Moore cardstock.

Thanksgiving Card

I designed the Thanksgiving card on my Gypsy using the Create-a-Critter cartridge. I thought he needed a bow tie so I added some ribbon to the front. I used my white gel pen and did some faux stitching around his feathers and hay. I popped Mr. Turkey up with some foam tape to add dimension and inked all of my edges. I stamped the sentiment, Happy Thanksgiving, on the inside and added a fall leaf stamp to the front of the card as well.

Well, I better get my birthday card in the mail. Thanks for looking and as always, please leave me a comment. Thanks!!


Cricut Imagine Card

by Ginger on October 22, 2010

Hello everyone, just wanted to share with you a card I made with my new Imagine machine. The artwork is from the “Best Friends”cartridge where I used the layer feature. I used craft cardstock for the base of my card.

I glimmer misted some prima flowers and added some DCWV ribbon. I accented the leaves and the bird’s wing with some glossy accents, inked all of the edges, and used some foam tape to give the card even more dimension.

Well, let me know what you think. Have a great day!


Halloween Treat Bag

by Ginger on October 21, 2010

Wow, ok.. so it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. My apologies, but with all of the awesome Circle SWARM prizes I won it’s been an overwhelming week!

The Salt Lake City Swarm was amazing.  The sponsors make-n-takes were fabulous. I loved them all. The Halloween treat box/bag was darling so I decided to come home and make a few.

Here’s my version of the treat box that we made at the SWARM.
