Hello everyone! It's time again for another KinderStampO Color it Monday. On this card I used Grungepaper covered in silver paint dauber and crackle paint. After I let that dry I cut out the cage using the Tim Holtz Sizzix Caged Bird die. I then cut the bird section of the die also from Grungepaper, inked it up, and then covered it in Glossy Accents. I took one of KinderStampO's Vintage Letter charms and covered it with a silver paint dauber and stamped my sentiment inside of it. I used the KinderStampO "Greetings From Home" stamp set. Once the sentiment was dry I also covered that with Glossy Accents. For the pink and silver background paper I used a white sheet of cardstock and stamped it with a background stamp that was inked up with silver paint dauber. I then brushed on pink die ink. I hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by :)

I got to do some scrapbooking supply shopping today and I found some really great tiki paper! I had the perfect pictures of a luau that have been just sitting here waiting for me to get started on a layout for them and when I found this paper today I was completely inspired. I used the Mahalo and Mahalo Nui Loa svg sets from Lettering Delights for the cuts. I also inked up the edges a bit and threw in a few Jolee's stickers to finish it off. I'm really pleased how this came out. Then again I'm pleased just to be knocking out a layout since I have been getting behind on them lately lol. Thanks for stopping by!

This card is made for the Circle cartridge challenge. I used French Manor (Circle cartridge) for the background card. I also used Sophie (Circle cartridge) for the flower. I can't remember which cartridge I used for the tag. I think it was probably Gypsy Wanderings since that's ususally where I get my tags from. The small flowers are Punch Bunch paper punches that I added black rhinestones to.

Hi guys! I've been getting all of my Cricut Circle Blogivesary Challenge entries ready to post. This is an entry for the Cuttlebug challenge on October 5th. The requirements of the challenge were to create a project with the Cuttlebug as the focus with at least two Cricut cuts. I broke out the Art Philosophy cartridge again for this card. It was quick and easy and I still think it came out nice. I cut out the diamond shaped card as the background. I cut the individual diamond shape at two varying sizes and used Cuttlebug folders to emboss each one. I then cut the tag and leaf at their corresponding sizes that matched the stamp set. I added a little inking, some stamping, and a few rhinestones and twine and viola! Easy peasy. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!

Last week was the Cricut Circle's blogiversary so to celebrate they are having a whole weeks worth of challenges with some really awesome prizes. I've been busy crafting away to come up with some entries and it's given me a chance to use some of my new carts so I had a ton of fun. My first entry is for the oct 7th challenge. The requirements were:
1) A title
2) At least 2 Cricut Cuts.
3. At least 3 buttons.
Here is what I came up with. I used my new cartridge Girl's Makeup Party cartridge (which I bought specifically for this fantastic title cut). The pink and white layers of the title are cut at 3 inches. I used the same cut twice but for the white background I used my Gypsy to hide all the inner cuts. I then took that same hidden inner cut image and sized it to 3.2 inches and cut it out of black as well for the final layer. The nail polish bottle is cut in the same manor. The picture mats are cut from Art Philosophy. The paper is Teresa Collins Posh collection and the girl heads I cut out by hand from one of the pieces of cardstock in the collection. I then added small button brads to the corners of the photo mats. I'm really excited with this one because it's been so long since I have made a layout. Now all I have to do is add in my photos. I hope you enjoy! Thanks for stopping by.

Hi everyone! I'm back with another design team submission for KinderStampO's sketchy Wednesday. I searched my stash for this project and was able to use different odds and ends that I felt went with the theme of the card. I also used the KinderStampO "Greetings from Home" stamp set. Check out the stamp set and all of Jess's other fabulous sets at the KinderStampO store. The image is from The Greeting Farm and I colored it in with my copic markers. I ususally do bold bright coloring but this time I did pale colors with little shading to give it more of a washed effect. I hope you enjoy. Thanks for stopping by!
