Have A Sunny Day with Making Waves

Have a Sunny Day with Making Waves

Here is a very simple card using a black and white base, a sentiment stamp, some Cricut cut butterflies, and some embellishments.  The font of the sentiment stamp is nice and thick. It stands out well as the sole stamp on this card.

The butterflies are from Close To My Heart’s exclusive Circut Cartridges, Artbooking and Artisty.   The embellishments are from the Making Waves Sequin and Gem’s collection.

The Bashful Shimmer Brush was added over the top of the Making Waves background and texture paper.  This shimmers through the butterfly cut-out on top of the base.  It’s very subtle bling.  This card will be on the Card Buffet this Spring.

 Don’t forget the Pretty in Pink Sale!

All things pink are on sale 25-30% off.  Bundles are the best deal so don’t miss out.  Some of the pink is already gone.

February things to keep in mind:

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

Enjoy The Little Things and Blog Candy

This layout is created with the Falling For You and  Cats and Bats paper packs and the Enchantment Color Palette Cardstock with a few of the Basic colors thrown in.  All the Cricut cuts are from current CTMH Cricut Cartridges.   No stamping this go around but I reserve the right to add some later.  If I do, I’ll share what I do.  The layout design was inspired by Ms. Carrie when I saw her layout posted.   I did change a few things around.

All of the triangles are either 2″x 2″ or 3″ x 3″ squares cut in half, corner to corner.  I created the borders around the pictures with them.  The leaves come from 3 different Cricut Cartridges.   The coffee cups and  sentiment “Enjoy the Little Things” come from the new Cricut You are Here.  Jeff and I love to visit different coffee shops, just to check things out.  We found a cute little one and we have some pictures of this.  I can’t wait to add them.  The rich colors from the Enchantment palette help make this page work.

Layer the leaves in the corner and put the coffee cup on top with 3D foam tape.  Use the gold shimmer brush on the title, “Coffee” (Artbooking alphabet).

Continue to layer the leaves around the sentiment.  Pop the sentiment up on 3D foam tape.  Use your Gold Shimmer Pen to color in the “Enjoy”.

You’ll need the following to create this:

Love You A Latte…I really do

Love You A Latte

With an anniversary around the corner on April 1 (and no, it’s not an April Fool’s Joke), this is a great card to have done.  It’s another one of my shaker card experiments with creating the shaker cards from the Cricut.  The Designer Space cut file will be posted on March 31 with the last shaker of the group.  It’s also part of the Spring Coffee Lovers’ Blog Hop.  You can click here to see their post, the amazing sponsors, and fabulous art work. 

I used Sea Glass cardstock for the base and Kraft for the top.  I love Kraft paper for coffee cards.  I stamped a retired stamp from CTMH Coffee Stain randomly over the top of the craft paper.  The “Love You A Latte” says it all.  My husband is a coffee addict.  He’s got a K-Cup, an Nespresso, and I think he’s the holder of a platinum membership thingy with Starbucks, LOL.  Come to my house and you’ll get great coffee, tea, or espresso.

The sentiment is cut from the Cricut and piece together.  I used the Shimmer Brush to sparkle up the “you” in the sentiment.  For shaker contents, I used toppings from Queen and Company.   I liked how the new Neutral toppings mixed in with some of the older ones.  I think I like the old bottles better than the new packaging.  I put down some Dreamin Big sequins and added some Sugar Rush Dots to the center of them.  =)

This shaker card will be part of the extra shaker kits you can purchase at our Shaker Card Parties in April. 

March is a great month!  Here are the links to all of the great specials:
