You're turtley Awesome....

Hi crafty friends! Hope everybody is having an awesome day. Today I am sharing a quick card I whipped up using an adorable cut file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  This file is the "Cutesy Sea Turtle" and can be found here: http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=1181

This card measures 4.5" x 6.25" and is made using both Bazzill and ReCollections card stock. The patterned paper used is from the "Surf's Up" paper pad, also from ReCollections. To start, I uploaded my file to Cricut Design Space and cut each piece using my Cricut Explore.  I then chalked each piece using my Color Box Chalk Inks (Pink Sky, Candied Yams, Aquamarine, Deep Green and Olive Pastel). I adhered all my pieces together using Art Glitter Glue and added some highlights and details using a white Gelly Roll pen and a Black Micron Pigma Pen (005).  My sentiment, "You're turtley Awesome" is from the Totally Turtle stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas and can be found here: http://craftindesertdivas.com/totally-turtle/ and is stamped using StazOn Jet Black Ink. To finish off my card, I added My Mind's Eye - Now and Then - Mildred "With You" enamel dots.

Thank you for stopping by today. I hope that you enjoyed today's project and hope to see you again soon! Have a fantastic crafty day!!

Like the flower & bee......

Good afternoon my crafty friends.  Today I am sharing a card that I created using another completely adorable file from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  This file can be found here: http://kadoodlebugdesigns.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=2&products_id=1164

This card measures 5 x 7 and was created using Bazzill and ReCollections card stock.  The patterned paper I used for my card base if from Hall Pass and is entitled "Rose".  To get started, I uploaded my file to Cricut Design Space and re-sized my image. I then cut out each piece using my Cricut Explore.  Once all pieces were cut, I used my Color Box Chalk Inks (Dark Brown, Dark Peony, Aquamarine and Citrus Yellow) to shade each piece.  I adhered my pieces together using Art Glitter Glue. I used a black Pigma Micron Pen (005) and a white Gelly Roll Pen to add highlights and details to my piece.

 I used my Cricut Explore to write my sentiment, "Like the flower and the bee, great friends are we" using the Elizabeth font. I added three enamel dots to my sentiment for that special added touch.  I also added Stickles to the center of each flower on my card base to give it just a small touch of sparkle (although you probably can't really see it in the picture.... sorry).

Thank you so much for visiting today! I hope you enjoy today's creation and hope to see you again soon!

All things grow with Love...

Hello there... Today I would like to share my inspiration for the Leinzlove Tear Bear Challemge Blog (http://leinzlovetearbearchallemge.blogspot.com)

Our theme this month is pastel flowers, so I created this really simple drapery fold card to share with you all today.  This card measures 4.25" x 5.50". My card base is made using ReCollections card stock. For the drapery portion of the card, I used double-sided patterned card stock from Pebbles.

To create the drapery fold on my card, I cut my patterned card stock down to 4" x 11.50". I then scored this piece at 3", 4", 6", 7", 9" and 10".  I then carefully lined up my paper on my cutting board and cut diagonally from the 3" score mark up to the other end, leaving about 1". I folded all of my scored lines and created my "drapery". I adhered this drapery portion onto my card base using Art Glitter Glue. 

I then cut .50" x 5.50" of the patterned card stock and used it as a border up on the top of the card. I adhered three flower embellishments from ReCollections on the left hand side of the card. I also added three green jelly dots from Queen & Co. on the border piece on the top right.

In the lower right corner, I added my sentiment, "all things grow with Love", which is part of a stamp set from Ki for Hampton Art and is stamped in Studio G dye ink.

I hope that you enjoyed my creation for today and I hope to see you come back soon and visit again! Happy crafting my friends!
