Sharing a card made from Too Cute By Jessica – Christmas Animals SVG Cuts designed by Jesssica Owens 2014.

Here is a close-up of the image.

Using my Cricut Explore and Cricut Design Space, I uploaded the images and then cut the pieces out for the cat and wreath.

I decided to add some layers to the wreath using Martha Stuart branch punch and then adding some Xmas Red stickles to make some holly.

For the eyes, I used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen.  I drew in some eyelashes with Pigma Micron 01 black marker, but you can’t really see them. Thought it would be a cool idea to use black thread for the whiskers to show up.

Sentiment was stamped with VersaMark ink and heat embossed with Ranger Embossing Powder White – Extra Fine Detail.

Stamp used is from Jaded Blossom Stamps – Meow and Forever.

Die cuts are from My Creative Time – Scalloped Stitched Oval Dies.

Embossing folder used – Swiss Dots was then used on the scalloped die cut and on oval – Christmas Ornaments on Recollections – Christmas Inkjet Printable Glitter Paper – 8.5 x 11″.

Background paper is from American Crafts – Holiday – 6 x 6″ (15.2 x 15.2 cm) paper pack.

Hope you like it!

Birthday Bears


Hi there,

Back to share a card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica Bears from  Too Cute by Jessica – Birthday-Girl-Bears

and Too Cute by Jessica –  Birthday Boy Bears for my Aunt’s birthday.

Sentiment on front of card is from JadededBlossom stamps “Party Animal”.

Dotted eyes with Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Used Wink of Stella – Clear on the pompoms and on the base of hat to add some extra sparkle.

I made the card so that the 2 front panels opened up to reveal the sentiment.

Here are some close-ups.

GirlBDyBear BDBoyBear

The bears were really fuzzy, but I put them through the Xyron, so they look a little bit scruffy. LOL! I still like how they turned out though. Hope you do too!

My aunt really loved her card. Made me very happy!

I used Cricut Design Space and my Cricut Explore to cut out all of the pieces. For the bears, I used the scoring tool and mulberry paper. Then I just outlined the pieces so that I could see them better. Wet around the outlines and pulled my bear pieces apart to make them fuzzy. Added some brown chalk to give the edges some added dimension.

On the inside, I added this sentiment from  “Whatnot Sentiments Set Three – Your Next Stamp”.

Graduation Card


Hi There,

Sharing a graduation card that I made using Too Cute By Jessica – Graduation Pals.

Boy-Graduate

I thought this file was so cute! Used Cricut Design Space and Cricut Explore to cut out the pieces. Then ran everything through my Xyron. Used some inks to ink the edges and put the card together on blue Recollections Card Stock. Lost his little nose somehow after I had cut it out! LOL! So, I used the cut out to draw it in with my Zig marker and then drew him a little mouth.

Used pink chalk for the cheeks.

The sentiment is from My Creative Time – Happy Everything Stamp Set. Used Versamark – Onyx black and then Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder for “graduation”.

Used Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen for the eyes.

Hope you like it!

Birthday Party Hat


Hi There,

Back again to share a card that I made using one of last week’s Kadoodle Bug Designs Party freebies .svg’s called Party Hat Cutie by Melissa Deuss 2016.

KBBDCard

Here is a close up:

KB-BD-Closeup

To make this I uploaded the image into Cricut Design Space and used my Cricut Explore to cut out the images. Inked around all of the edges and then ran the pieces through my Xyron’s. Makes it so much easier to put the pieces together. LOL!

The background paper is Forever In Time Paper Craft Collection – Cupcake Craze, which I picked up from our local dollar store. I just love how it went with this card.

The lettering is from Forever in Time Scrapbook Collection – Sticker Trendz – SS460A.

I cut out the borders with Craftin Desert Diva’s Fancy Frames. This has to be one of my favourite cutting die sets that I own.

My Creative Time: Fun Vertical Greetings were used for the frames around the wording! I really love this set too!

I dotted the eyes using Gelly Roll Sakura #8 Pen. Lastly, I added in a little bit of  Craftin Desert Diva’s – Posies sequins.

Hope you like it!
