Another Masculine Card – “Hi”

Another Masculine Card – “Hi”

Hi everyone!  I’m back to show you yet another masculine card.  I found a card on Pinterest by Amy Kollings that spoke to me so I created my take on the card.  I made a few changes to her card but over all I loved her design and stuck to it.

Simple Birthday Card Using the Silhouette

Simple Birthday Card Using the Silhouette

 

 

Hi everyone.  I made a card this weekend for my mother-in-law.  It’s pretty simple, I did use one image from the Silhouette store to add a little something to her card.  Hope you like it.

 

 

 

The card is a standard top fold A2 card.

  • Kraft card base
  • Purple card stock mat (open stock from Michael’s)
  • Green card stock mat (open stock from Michael’s)
  • Pattern paper is by Basic Gray ( 12×12 from stash)
  • Flower cut from Silhouette on same purple card stock.  I did remove the center cut so it would be solid and not cut out.  Cut the image twice, one smaller than other.
  • cut a piece of kraft card stock and stamped Happy Birthday from a Inkadinkado set using brown ink
  • Placed rhinestones in the center of flowers and on each end of the sentiment

 

Thank you for checking in with me.  See you in the next post.

 

Simple Masculine 50th Birthday Card

Simple Masculine 50th Birthday Card

 

Hi everyone!  I wanted to share with you today a card I made for my oldest brother who turned 50 this year.  Yeah, he’s pretty old… haha!  With 15 years between the two of us I feel I can loving say he’s old.

Ok, back to the card I made for him.  He’s a simple, no frills kinda guy. I created the card on a simple, manly, elegant way…. if you can do that???  He loved it and so did I.  Here it is:

 

 

 

It’s a standard A2 sized card.

  • black cardstock base cut and folded to 5 1/2 x 4 1/4, distressed edges (Tim Holtz Distressing tool)
  • pattern paper from My Mind’s Eye – Lost and Found two (my fav at the moment) cut to 5 1/4 x 4, distressed edges
  • inked edges with Tim Holtz Vintage Photo as well as lightly dabbed all over the paper to give a more vintage color, attached to card base
  • black mat from The Paper Studio – Texture Black -  cut at 5 x 3 3/4, distressed edges and inked edges and all over with Vintage photo
  • punched holes in all four corners with the Crop a dile, set antique gold eyelets.  Attached to pattern paper with foam tape
  • Numbers cut using the Cricut Expression From the Plantin SchoolBook Cartridge, at 2.5 inches (I think)  Paper found in my stash, inked edges and all over with Vintage Photo
  • Numbers attached straight to black mat

Easter Card

Easter Card

Hi everyone!  Hope you are having a great Friday and fun filled weekend ahead.  This will be a short and sweet post.  I have created a super cute Easter card and I wanted to share it with you. Sarah from Live, Love and SCRAP, created the cutest card, “Hugs! Chickie card.”  I thought it was perfect for Easter.  I pretty much “scraplifted” her entire card, it was that cute.  Check out her awesome blog and video tutorial here.  Thanks Sarah!

Here’s my version:

 

 

So cute that I made two.  Differences: I cut the base and layers. I don’t have any Peachy Keen Face Stamps :( I also used Ecru colored embroidery floss… no, I don’t have any baker’s twine either :(

I used the Imagine to cut out the colors in squares then I used my Expression to cut them out.  My Create a Critter cartridge will only work through my Gypsy, so I couldn’t color fill the images in the Imagine.  It all worked out.  I added a couple of glittery flowers to the eggs and stamped “XOXO” on the little banner.

Thanks for checking in with me.  Hope you have a wonderful Easter.  Be sure to follow me by email and like me on facebook.  See you in the next post.

Ribbon Rose Hair Pin

Ribbon Rose Hair Pin

Hi everyone!  Remember way back to my Two Projects Down, 10 To Go post in February?  In that post I showed a card that I made for my niece’s birthday.  The card featured a ribbon rose embellishment that actually was a hair pin.

Here is the video tutorial I followed to make my rose.  I used one inch wide grosgrain ribbon and my hot glue gun to secure as I went along.  When I was finished, I attached the rose to the hair pin using E6000 jewelry glue.

I used:

  • a creamy tan-colored textured DCWV cardstock as my card base, A2 size 51/2 x 4.25 folded, inked with brown ink
  • cut a piece of pink textured DCWV cardstock 5.25 x 4 as a mat, inked with brown ink
  • cut a piece of pattern paper from DCWV Glitter Stack Mat Stack to layer on top of the pink cardstock, inked with brown ink
  • printed the sentiment out on more of the creamy tan-colored cardstock from my printer and cut the strip 1 1/2 inches wide and 5.25 long, inked with brown ink
  • Then I slipped the hair pin over the sentiment strip

My First Card Using The Imagine

My First Card Using The Imagine

While trying to work on the design team call projects I came across pictures of cards I’ve made. I think I will share a few with you over the next little while. I really like how they turned out.

Up first is a card I made for… you guessed it, my daddy. This was the first complete card made using my Cricut Imagine and the Imagine More Cards cartridge.

You're just my type

 

Card base is a cream-colored cardstock cut to A2 size, edges are inked with Color Box brown ink.  The pattern paper is printed and cut from the Imagine More Cards cartridge pg. 42.  I wrapped some black embroidery thread around the pattern paper three times and taped to the back of the paper and I placed three small gun-metal colored brads to the bottom left side of the paper.    I attached the paper to the cardstock using some ATG.  The “You’re Just My Type” image cut in layers from pg. 8, adhered together using Two Way Glue Pen,  typewriter is popped up on foam tape.  I used Glossy Accents to cover the enter typewriter to give it an epoxy type finish.  The “love” badge is from the same cartridge, pg. 14, there is another one on the inside of the card .  All images are inked with the brown ink.

You're Just My Type

What do you think.  I fell in love with my Imagine while working on this card.  So much you can do, so much to learn.
