Valentine for Someone Special :)

Here is a new card I made today during my daughter's nap. It seems like that is the only time I have available to make something!
This card was made using the Imagine.

I used the Imagine More cartridge. The background paper was cut at 5 inches - I flood filled the rounded rectangle. Then I took apart one of the images and just used one layer of it for the tag on the card. This was cut at 3 inches. The owl was cut at 2.5 inches. The stamp of the branch is from American Crafts. The letters are thickers.

Also, I'd like to say thank you to all my new followers. Twenty followers may not be a lot to you, but to me - it's fabulous : )

Thanks for stopping by!

New Card Today

Hi, I have a new card for you today. I just won the cartridge Simply Charmed on ebay, so I thought I would make a couple of cards with it. I love this cartridge for fun, happy cards or images for scrapbook pages.
I made this card by cutting the birthday cake at 5 inches. I used the gypsy to weld two birthday cakes together so I could make this a shaped card. I love using the gypsy in order to make shaped cards. Also, I recently learned how to hide contours on images when cutting and I find that to be very helpful : )

Don't forget that if you are making a shaped card, you have to flip one of the images. I forgot that when I was making this card...

Since I forgot to flip one of the presents, the two halves to the card don't fold exactly on top of each other. Oh well, live and learn!

Have a great day : )

My Pink Stamper Challenge

Today I'd like to show you my entry into the My Pink Stamper Design Team Challenge. The Challenge is to use pink, brown, green, and one other color (I chose white).

For this very cute owl, I used the cartridge Hoot N Holler.

The owl is cut at 5 inches, and the other layers are cut accordingly. I used the gypsy in order to weld two owl pieces together so this would be a shaped card.

I cuttlebugged the front layer of the owl with the swiss dots folder for some added texture.

I also cut a heart from the same cartridge at 3.25 inches. I inked this piece and then glued it to the back of the owl.

Thanks for looking!

Have a great day : )

Happy New Year

Here is a Happy New Year card that I made using my Cricut. I used Celebrate with a Flourish and Jillibean Soup Christmas paper.

Hope you all enjoyed a fun celebration last night and have plans for a fabulous new year! We will be celebrating in March with a new baby girl : )
