Minion Birthday Card


Hi There,

Made this birthday card for my Super husband.

He means the world to me and I’m not to sure what I’d do without him.

My husband loves the minions, so I thought this would be a really cute card for him.

The Superman minion .svg file was from the SVG Cuts “Super Hero” Blog Hop!” on April 24, 2015.

Background cupcake pattern is from DCWV – Everyday Stack 6″ x 6″ paper pad.

Other background paper was found at the dollar store, so not sure who makes it. I thought it looks great for a birthday background though.

I used my Cuttlebug and Quickutz Nesting Frame 7 dies from We R memory keepers to cut out the shapes.

This is the inside of the card. I realized that I spelled “Your” wrong and fixed it to “You’re” with a marker later. Oops!

The Wonder woman minion .svg file was from the SVG Cuts “One in a “Minion” Blog Hop!” on June 12, 2015. The file was only available at the time of the hop.

To make this card, I imported the .svg files into Cricut Design Space and then used the Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces.

LOVE  my Cricut Explore!!!

For the sentiments, I used the Magneto font in Microsoft Word and then just printed it out on my printer and cut around the wording.

Hope you like it! My husband thought it was pretty funny.

Pink Bear Birthday Card


Hi There,

I’m back to share a birthday card that I made for my niece’s birthday.

 

Pink Bear HB in 200 dpi

I used the .svg freebie that I had received from KaDoodle Bugs Designs – Cuddly Pink Bear. I thought this bear was just so adorable.

I imported the file into Cricut Design Space and then used the Cricut Explore to cut all of the pieces.

For the bear, I used the embossing tool because I didn’t want to cut the Mulberry Paper  (Nicole Handmade Mulberry Paper). Instead, I just required the outlines so that I could wet around the images and then tear them a part.

Used my Cuttlebug to do the following:

The circle was cut with Lifestyle Crafts Cutting Dies – Nesting Circles. – 3rd largest die and Doodlebug Design Inc. –

Sugar Shoppe 6 x 6 paper pad.

Inked around the edges with Dew Drop Memento – Rose Bud.

The scallop was cut with WeR Memory Keepers – Quickutz Nesting Scallops – largest die.

Doily was cut from My Creative Time – Bunch of Stitched Doily Dies.

Used Inkssentials Glossy Accents for the nose and Wink of Stella Gl. White 000 for the hat.

Some stickles for the ice cream sprinkles.

Peel Offs – Happy Birthday Assortment for the sentiment.

Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen was used on the eyes for highlights and stitching around the scallops.

Pigma Micron #5 – Black was used for the eyelashes.

 

 

 

Super Mario Minion Birthday Card


Hi There,

Sharing a Super Mario Birthday card that I made for my nephew.

Super Mario Minion HB in 300 dpi

The .svg file was from the SVG Cuts “One in a “Minion” Blog Hop!” on June 12, 2015. The file was only available at the time of the hop.

To make this card, I imported the .svg file into Cricut Design Space and then used the Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces.

LOVE  my Cricut Explore!!!

I needed to find some brick to put the characters up on, so I went shopping looking for an embossing folder or die cut. Couldn’t find any and then it dawned on me.

I have Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore. I could just make my own wall!!!!

I used the round corner rectangle and made various sizes, cut them out and placed them onto a solid colour. Voila! I had my brick wall.

For the background I used #Summer Paper Pad 6 x 6 in (15.2 x 15.2 cm) from American Crafts.

The sentiment is from Craftin Desert Divas – Little Super Star.

Balloons are from Frances Meyer – Stickers – (FST 955 Balloons).

White stitching around the pocket is made with

Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.

Snowman Globe

It’s Christmas in July!

Here is a snowman shaker card that I made.

This is a close-up.

Snoman - Closeup

To make the card, I used my Cricut Explore to cut out the snow globe from “Cricut Cartridge – Joys of the Season – #M3EAF0″.

To make the window, I merged together the large circle and a small rectangle in Cricut Design Space.

Next, I put the smaller globe on top of the merged piece and then used the slice tool.

This enabled me to cut the cardboard pieces out. I cut out 4 pieces of thin cardboard and then glued the cellophane across the top.

I had received some flowers and kept the cellophane that they used to wrap the flowers up with.

Works great for shaker cards and it cuts easily.

The snowman is from Peachy Keen Stamps –

“PK-1346 Picture Snow Day”

Sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva’s “Chill Out”

Used my Cuttlebug to cut the Snow using Craftin Desert Diva’s – “Landscape Dies” then embossed with “D’Vine Swirl”

Background paper behind snowman is from Recollections Signature – Blue Christmas 6 in x 6 in paper pad.

Snowmwan’s jacket was paperpierced from DCWV Premium Paper Pack – Assorted papers.

Card base is Recollections – Frost.

I used Spectrum Noir Pens LV1, LV2, CR4, BT1 and Blender pen to colour.

Memento – Tuxedo Black was used for sentiment and for stamping the snowman.
