Slice of Summer Shaped Card

Slice of Summer Shaped Card

Hello everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I have another fun summer shaped card to share. I used a really great svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables.

med_nested-summer-shapes2

I used the fun watermelon in this file to create my shaped card.

Watermelon Slice shaped card Front

Since this is a nesting file I didn’t use all of the layers.

I stamped my sentiment on the outside with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used my Stampin’ Up banner punch to punch the end and added a fun double bow with some May Arts jute string.

Watermelon Slice shaped card inside

I stamped the inside sentiment with the same ink. All of the cardstock is from Stampin’ Up. That’s my fun summer shaped card. I hope you give a shaped card a try. Have a great week!

Miss Kate Cuttables #1 Dad Card

Miss Kate Cuttables #1 Dad Card

Hello everyone! Today I want to share a card that I created for the Miss Kate blog. Since Father’s Day is this month I thought I would create a Father’s Day card. Miss Kate has so many great files that it was really hard to choose. I decided on a shaped card using the #1 Dad file.

med_1-dad-title

This file is actually a title file but I loved the design of it so I turned it into a shaped card using my Cricut Explore Air.

#1 Dad Shaped Card Front

This file worked great for a shaped card since it has a nice shadow layer that can be used as the base of the card. I added some dimension to the card by using some foam tape to the back of the tie.

I kept the sentiment pretty simple on the inside by using the Happy Father’s Day stamp from CardzTv Happy Days stamp set.

#1 Dad Shaped Card Inside

That’s my Father’s Day card. I like how it turned out. It was really simple to create. Have a great week!

Make A Wish Shaped Card

Make A Wish Shaped Card

Hi everyone! Today I have a fun shaped birthday card to share. I created this card using an image from Miss Kate Cuttables. I used the Make A Wish Title file.

med_make-a-wish-title2

I love using some of the title files to create shaped cards. I used my Cricut Explore Air to create this fun little card.

Make A Wish Card Front

Here’s a closeup of the front of the card.

I also used CardzTv Happy Days stamp set for my sentiment on the inside.

Make a wish inside

I added a few little stars to the inside just to add a little more color. Well that’s my card. Have a great week!

Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Challenge

Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook Challenge

Hi everyone! Today I want to share a little project that I created for the Miss Kate Cuttables Challenge that is currently going on over on the Miss Kate Cuttables Galleria Facebook page. All of the details are on the Miss Kate blog.

The challenge is Teacher Gifts. I used this really cute file called #1 Teacher and a couple of stars from another file.

med_1teachertitle

I made a cute little easel style post it note holder as my teacher gift.

#1 Teacher easel front

Here is the project open.

#1 Teacher Easel Post It Open

This project was a lot of fun to create and would make some great little gifts for anyone. I just used some scraps of leftover design paper in my stash and purchased a small little pack of mini gel pens.

Now it’s your turn to enter the challenge! Have a great week!

Graphic 45 ABC Primer Teacher Card

Graphic 45 ABC Primer Teacher Card

Hello everyone! Today I have a card to share with you that I created for Graphic 45. I used the ABC Primer Deluxe Collectors Edition as well as a few others to create a Teacher card.

ABC Primer Teacher Card

My card measures 5×7. I used solid black yardstick for the base of my card. My first layer is a fun polka dot print that is from the Graphic 45 Times Nouveau Collection. I used one of the adorable cut a parts from ABC Primer for the main image of my card. I wanted the image to stand out just a bit so I layered a small red check that is from the Graphic 45 12 Days of Christmas 6×6 patterns and solids. I did add a layer of foam to the back of the image to give some dimension. I used a metal corner and tied a red gingham bow to the bottom. I layered on a small black button with some black jute twine to the center of the bow.

ABC Primer Teacher Card Side

I used a small strip of gold colored paper from the 12 Days of Christmas 6×6 patterns and solids to create a small scalloped border. I used a really fun die set from Creative Time called Love to Learn to die cut the word Teacher as well as the cute little apple. I added those little die cut pieces to the gold scalloped border. I found a small metal tab in my stash and added it to the upper right hand corner.
I also finished off the inside of my card as well.

ABC Primer Teacher Card Inside

I used the same more papers from the 12 Days of Christmas 6×6 patterns and solids to mat the inside of my card. The base of the inside mat is gold and then I added a layer of cream to write a sentiment. I added another scalloped border to the top and one more fun little die cut apple. I did pop up the apple with pop dots to give dimension.

That’s my card for today! Thanks to all the fabulous Teachers! Have a great weekend!
