Hello Friend and heads up

Hello Friend and heads up

Check out this super cute Hello Friend dragonfly card that will be on the Come and Play Card Buffet.  My goal is to clear out some of the stash of papers that I have hanging around.  Using the Cricut to create this dragonfly and retired Dream Big papers, here’s a great card for the Card Buffet!

The sentiment is stamped on a banner from the banner thin cut dies which are on sale for $10.49 or $27.90 in the banners bundle.

Liquid Glass is used over the wings to create the glossy effect.  Tried to keep it “in the lines” of the wings but some went out.  You can layer the Liquid Glass, letting it dry between coats.

Heads up for April’s Specials for New and Former Consultants:

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:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  Have a sunny day!  It promises to be fairly warm today.  Maybe we’ll see some sunny weather to dry out all that rain we’ve gotten over the last 48 hours.  If you need some creative help,  I’m here to help you out – email me: info@lindacreates.com.

Star Cards

Star Cards

Check out these awesome star cards!  Just love them.   They have been popping up all over the boards so I just had to try and make them.  The inspiration for them comes from this YouTube video:

I did the template version and then hopped over to Design Space to create a cutting file for this.  Probably will add one of these cards to the Card Buffet so I need it to be able to cut fast.  In addition, I made it so it will fit in an A5 envelope for convenience sake.  The first card is made with Chelsea Gardens Paper Pack and the Chelsea Garden Cardmaking Stamp Set.  Beautiful.  All the stamping is done on vellum and heat embossed with silver.  Use the Shin Han Touch markers to color the vellum pieces.

The second card is made with the Gimme Some Sugar Paper Pack.   The coffee cups and sentiment are cut from the Cricut so there is no stamping on this card.  Gimme Some Sugar looks wonderful with the kraft papers.

I’ll come back and do a longer post on the hows.  The cards were so fun and easy once in Design Space I just had to share.

February things to keep in mind:

Thanks for stopping by to checkout my creative world.  Truly a fun card, this star card is sure to wow your friends.  Be sure to catch the next card buffets because there will be only 10 cards!   If you need some creative help,  I’m here to help you out – give me a call or email me: info@lindacreates.com!!

Together

Together

This great card is from another guest artist and team member, Laurie L!  “Together” is the sentiment from the May Stamp of the Month “Live Love Laugh” S1705.  It’s used together with this the Flower Marker Cricut collection and the Whimsy Fundamental Collection.  Brilliant combination.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Randomly stamp the flowers and leaves from the stamp set on the Sweet Leaf cardstock.  Mount this and a piece of the Sweet Leaf on Thistle.  Cut a banner (pg 3)  and the flower (pg 14) from Flower Market.  Emboss “together” on the banner and use thin 3D foam tape to mount the banner.

 

Assemble the pieces of the flower and mount on the banner. Use a 3D foam tape under the flower to provide additional stability.

 

Here’s a great YouTube video on additional uses of the cartridge.  This is really a great cartridge collection.  Be sure to add it to your collection and get 2 entries into the Great Cricut Giveaway and 4 of the workshops offered on my class page for FREE!

Life Gets Stormy

Life Gets Stormy:

Unfortunately we all have moments or times in our lives where life is not working out well.  Thank goodness for those friends who walk life with us when we can barely do it.  This shaker card celebrates those relationships.

I love the sentiment and it comes from a wonderful stamp set that is retired from CTMH.  I love it some much it has a permanent residence in my stamp collection.

The contents of the shaker are “happy”.  Flowers, stars, pearls, silver beads and more “toppings” from Queen and Company (Shaker, die, and topping are from here).  This card is on the Shaker Card Party Buffet.

The Little Moments

The Little Moments

 

Here’s another one of the Butterfly Shakers using this great stamp set from the Flower Market Cricut Bundle.  It’s really awesome with all of the mixed font sayings.   I designed this to celebrate those little moments in life that make it so wonderful.  Facebook posts up memories and one of the ones they reminded me of is how I love watching SG play with dandelions and blowing away the seeds.  It’s not monumental.  It’s a little moment and it’s special.

See, isn’t she beautiful with her dandelion.  I hope she’ll always find pleasure in these little moments of life.

The shaker and die for the shaker are from Queen and Company.  The insides of this shaker are sequins and some seed beads that I think I got from AC Moore.  These matched the card better.  The sequins are from the Dreaming Big Sequins.  And those great silver glitter gems are no more as the Sugar Rush gems are sold out.  Per  sadness on that one.   I love this ribbon and you can get it in the Enchanted Ribbon Collection.

 

I put a little bitty gem on the “i” in “little”.  Super happy with this shaker card.  It’s part of the Shaker Card Party Buffet.  You can get it at the Harbor Scrapbooking event in April or at one of my CropTastic’s in May.    The paper is Blossom which is retired but I had a few sheets in my paper stash!  Loving getting to use up the stash.

Sending Hugs Shaker Card

Sending Hugs Shaker Card:

Shaker cards are really a lot of fun.  This balloon card is sending some hugs to someone who needs them.  The shaker elements is the “extra special” part of the card.  I used Georgie paper that had in my stash.  I’m working on using my stash right now to make room for the New Seasonal Expressions that will be launched very very soon.  =)

I used Jillibean’s shaker cup, card base, and dies to create the shaker.  The insides of the shaker are from Queen and Company.  All other materials are CTMH.  The cardstock colors are Juniper, Slate, and Crystal Blue.  The ribbon is from the Enchantment Ribbon Collection.  All the stamping is done in Juniper Ink which is still one of my favorite colors.

There is a back panel behind the shaker cup.  I stamped “hugs enclosed” on it before sealing the cup, then you adhere the paper panel to the back of the front of the card so the cup comes through the hole in the card.  I stood the card up for taking the picture so you could see it.  On the inside, I stamped “to brighten your day”.
