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!

Love the Little Moments

Love the Little Moments

Here’s a card with the Stamp of the Month S1705 Live Love Laugh.  This one is done by a guest artist Jennifer P from my swap group.  This shows how you can color the card and have it look great for those who are not color-ers.   “Love” can be such a useful word when pair with different sentiments.  This sentiment is from the Cricut Cartridge Flower Market Collection and one of my favorite stamp sets.

Because the stamp set words are so large, it takes up most of the space on the card.  Simple is best.   The sentiments from Flower Market has these simple sayings that are done with a combination of 2 fonts, which I really like.  I don’t know if you can really see it for the picture from Flower Market. It’s the top set in the upper left corner.

See how perfect the sentiment goes with “love”.  It’s great to mix and match different stamp sets you have.

Love You More Than Coffee???

Love you More Than Coffee?

Here’s my second card for the Coffee Loving Cardmakers Blog Hop.

This is made using the CTMH Exclusive Cricut Cartridge Artistry!  I love being able to create cards like this.  I received a similar card from a downline, Debbie O’Neal, who is a whiz at the Cricut Stuff.  In Design Space, I created this file to make coffee cup cards:  https://us.cricut.com/design/#/canvas/38515691.  If you do not have the Artistry Cartridge, you can purchase it here (and be in my Great Cricut Giveaway see end of post).

Sugar Rush is the paper for the cup and Kraft Paper was used for the protective wrap.   What goes better with coffee then donuts and Sugar Rush is an awesome paper pack for this.  Using Chocolate Ink, stamp “love you more than” on the wrap.  Distress the edges with Chocolate and sponge daubers.  The stamps and dies are from Sugar Pea Designs.

Take the heart cut out from the Kraft paper and put on the lid.  Use 3-D foam tape on the lid for dimension.  Sugar Rush glitter dots (aren’t they just yummy) add the bling to the card with red enamel hearts inside the hearts.   Come back tomorrow for a Coffee Shaker Card!

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

  • All of  CTMH’s die cuts and stamps/die cuts combos are on sale for 25% off.

Always Be You – On Sale and Free Cutting File!

Always Be You – On Sale and FREE Cutting File!

My guest artist today is Linda B, another consultant on my team and participant in the 50 Card Swap.  She did an incredible job with this card and we are using it for our Come and Play Card Buffet.   Butterflies and ladybugs are always unique and different, just as people are.  We all have someone who needs a pick-me-up when times are tough.  Here’s the card for them.  Even a guy would like it.  =)

The stamp set used comes with die cuts. Thank goodness, right?  No fussy cutting!  Best of all, this month you can get this stamp set and dies for $17.95, 25% off!  You make the butterflies and ladybug different colors by stamping on the lighter ink pad color and adding the other colors by rolling the edges of the stamps on the ink pad.  Each one will turn out different, truly making each image and card unique.

The magnifying glass is cut from the Cricut using Basic Shapes of Design Space.  Use transparency sheets which you can pick up from Staples for the center of the magnifying glass.  Use Thin 3D Foam Tape to pop up the magnifying glass so that it’s over the butterfly and ladybugs.   Cut the jar with the Cricut Flower Market (exclusive to CTMH but you could win it this month with my Great Cricut Giveaway event) out of transparency and with the bug patterned paper.  Trim the bug paper to leave the top of the jar clear.  Cutting file at the end of the post.

Adhere the bug paper to the transparency using Liquid Glass.  Add the bow and use Liquid Glass to adhere it to the top of the transparency.  A little got will do.

Use silver our foil tape and the embellishments from the sequin pack to add the finishing touches to the card.  Simple with enough fun to make it special and unique.

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

  • All of  CTMH’s die cuts and stamps/die cuts combos are on sale for 25% off.
  • S1703 – Tea-rrific is an incrediable Stamp of the Month for $17.95 or $5.00 with a $50.00 order.

Team Gifts for the Cruise

I wanted to share the team gift I made for all of my team who earned the CTMH Incentive Cruise. I found these cute little passport books from my friend, Christa Wildesen who is a Fun Stampers Journey Coach.  I love the Zoe Paper and felt like it had the feel of traveling and being tropical

Team Gift wm

I found a number of stamps, current and retired, which matched traveling.  We get a special incentive stamp set for each event that is exclusive to the event.  This is where the ship comes from.

Team Gift b wm

I cut what images I could from the Cricut (various CTMH cartridges) and fussy cut some.

Team Gift a wm

I got the world charm and the silver silk from Christa as well! See what you can do with the silk! I wanted the silver to match the charm.

Silk Collage wm

I thought having a passport cover would be a unique team gift for earning the cruise.
