Pop Out Valentine Cards

Hello everyone! Today I want to share the valentines that I created for my grandkids. For my granddaughters card I used a really fun svg file from Lori Whitlock. Here’s the card I made for my granddaughter.

Here’s the card when it’s open. It’s a fun pop out card. I used my Cricut Explore Air2 to cut out this card. I even used the writing feature to write the sentiment.

For my grandsons card I decided to create the card without using the file. I did cut out a cute bee from Miss Kate Cuttables.

G45 FALL Banner

G45 FALL Banner

Hello everyone! Happy Friday! Today is the day for another challenge at PDE Linky Party. The challenge this time is “Anything but a Card”. I decided to create a fun FALL banner using a leaf chipboard mini album that I had in my stash. Here’s my banner.

I painted the leaves with a bunch of different paints from my stash. I did use the Tim Holtz copper paint and lots of distress ink. I used a wide black Copic marker to go around the edges of the leaves. I die cut several circles and doilies using the Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids.

I used some Lawn Fawn leaf dies and the Stampin Up Acorn Builder punch as well. I cut out the letters on my Cricut Explore Air using the papers from Graphic 45 Safari Adventure 6×6 patterns and solids. I used some gold thread to attach the leaves together and tied some bows with some May Arts jute string.

Here are photos of each letter.

Miss Kate Cuttables A Slice of Summer Card – Guest Designer

Miss Kate Cuttables A Slice of Summer Card – Guest Designer

Hello everyone! Today I am a guest designer for Miss Kate Cuttables. For my project I used a really fun watermelon set file.
This awesome little file has three different watermelon die cuts.

med_watermelon-set67

I decided to create a shaped card using the half watermelon. I also thought it would be fun if it was a shaker card. Here’s my watermelon shaker card.

The card measures approximately 4-1/4 inches. For the shaker part of the card I used some black and clear sequins as the watermelon seeds. Whenever I create a shaker card I like to cut multiple layers and stack them so I don’t have to use foam adhesive.

The sentiment for my card came from the CardzTv stamp set Fun in the Sun. I stamped the sentiment in black and added a couple of black sequins to the sentiment banner as well.

That’s my card for today. Thanks to Miss Kate Cuttables for allowing me to be a guest designer for them. Love me some Miss Kate’s! Have a great day!!

Miss Kate Cuttables Snow Globe Shaker Card

Miss Kate Cuttables Snow Globe Shaker Card

Hi everyone! Thanks for stopping by. Today I want to share a card that I created for the Miss Kate Cuttables blog. I used one of the cute snow globe files to make a shaker card.

Here’s the front of my card.

MKC Snow Globe Shaker Card

My card measures 5-1/2×7-1/4. I didn’t use all of the cuts from the snow globe file because I wanted to make a shaker card. I used my Cricut Explore Air to do this. I love how you can manipulate files to create just exactly what you want. I added some chunky snow filler in my shaker card.

The background paper is from Stampin Up’s Merry Moments paper pack. The sentiment is from the stamp set Christmas Cuties which is also from Stampin Up. I left the inside blank so I can add my own personal greeting.

There you have it! That’s my card. I think I’m going to send it to the grandkids! Make sure you check out all of the cute files over at Miss Kate.

Miss Kate Cuttables Passport Booklet

Miss Kate Cuttables Passport Booklet

Hello everyone! Today I have a project to share with you using a fun Miss Kate Cuttables file called Passport.

med_passport

I used my awesome Cricut Explore Air to create this fun realistic passport. I welded the back layer to the front layer then scored it down the middle. I duplicated the white layer so I would have one for both sides of my booklet.

MKC Passport Front

For the front of the booklet I wanted some gold leafing so the passport would look meow realistic. I punched out a white circle and used my Krylon gold leaf pen around the edges. I just wanted the gold to show up through the leaves.

On the inside I added a punched red stamp and a little photo frame.

That’s my project! Have a great day!

Miss Kate Cuttables Learn, Discover and Grow Photo Card

Hi everyone! Today is my day to post over on the Miss Kate blog. For my project I decided to do a school themed photo card. I used two different files from Miss Kate for my project.

Here is the front of my photo card.

Learn, Discover, Grow Owl photo card front

I used the print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore Air for the cute school owl. I cut the Learn, Discover, and Grow title file at 4.5 inches wide so it would fit on the front of my photo card.

For the inside of my card I double matted most of the spaces and added a larger school owl to the center photo mat.

I think the owl is so cute that I had to add it to the back of my card as well.

That’s my project! I think it turned out cute. I think the photo card is my new favorite! I do have a tutorial here on my blog on how to create the base of the card. Make sure you check out all of the awesome files that Miss Kate has.

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.

#1 Dad Shaped Card Closeup

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!
