Penguin Birthday Card

For this card I used my cricut with sure cuts alot. The penguin was a free cut file from . Check out their site for the cut file and other freebies. They also sell collections. I made the penguin into a card by putting 2 penguins together and flipping one and then hit weld. The card is 4 1/4 wide by 5 1/2 tall. I cut the base out using the shadow feature on SCAL and then cut the black and other details at the normal cut. I put orange stickles on the beak to give it some sparkle. I did ink around the edges also. Inside I put a scalloped circle and stamped a birthday sentiment on it. Enjoy!

Christmas Ornaments Card

For this card I used A Child's Year cartridge for the card shape and ornaments. The card shape can be found on page 43. I used the card feature with the shift button on. The ornaments came from page 57 using the icon button with the shift button off. The ornaments were cut at 2 1/2 inches. I stamped the santa and reindeer using versamark ink and white embossing powder on the ornaments and then used a heat gun to melt the powder. The stamps came from Michaels dollar bin. I used a white gel pen around the edges of the ornaments. The background paper is an old Christmas Stack. The tree's were made using shiny green paper and a tree punch. I glued the trees to the background paper. The edges were inked with brown ink and I went around the edges with a brown marker to give it stitch lines. Enjoy!

Winter Woodland House Christmas Card

This is a Christmas card that uses Winter Woodland Cartridge. The background paper is an old DCWV christmas stack. The paper used for the building was a shiny red gift bag that I cut up. The building is building 2 on page 43. It is cut at 4 inches. Remember to keep all the layers at 4 inches when cutting so the pieces will fit. Make sure you don't use real dial size. The layers will be the roof, bell, door and snow. I inked the edges of the decorative paper with a green ink pad. I inked and drew lines on the door and steps to give dimension. The stamps used were Studio G $1.00 stamps. Enjoy!

Fall Wreath

Here is a wreath that was created using the Cricut and A Childs Year cartridge. The leaves were cut at 2 1/2 inches. I used 8 1/2 inch paper and set the auto fill button. It calculated 15 leaves at 2 1/2 inches. I used Red cardstock, Yellow cardstock, Green cardstock, Orange cardstock, and Brown cardstock. I cut a silhouette circle for the base of the wreath using George and Basic Shapes cartridge. Each leaf was inked on the edges and then slighty curled to give a realistic shape. The scarecrow came from from the Harvest Hill Farm collection. He was cut at 6 inches using the sure cuts alot program. There are pieces that are cut for the face but I used a Peachy Keen face stamp for his face. I also cut some acorns from that collection and pop dotted them on the wreath. Stickles were used on some of the leaves to give an extra pop. (ignore the date on picture)Enjoy!

Winter Woodland Snowman card

This card I used the Winter Woodland Cartridge. I used the tag function for the snowman cut at 4 inches. I used design studio to size the snowman for the detail cut. I also used the hide button to hide the eyes and buttons on the snowman. I cut the hat and the bottom layer of the scarf with light blue. The detail layer of the scarf and hat were cut with dark blue. I glued all the layers together and put it on the snowman tag and attached it to the card front. The buttons on the snowman are black brads. I used a swirl stamp on the background paper and inked the edges of the paper with brown ink and used a white gel pen for the white stitch marks. I went around the edge with a dark blue ink to show the tag off a bit. The Happy Holiday is a Studio G $1.00 stamp. Enjoy!
