Hi everyone! Before we move onto the tutorial don’t forget to enter my blog giveaway!
This card is pretty simple and love how it turned out. The sun was cut using my Cricut from the Create a Critter cartridge, this was just the base layer, no additional layers needed. I placed pearls on every other ray, heat embossed the sentiment and applied a strip of lace on a roll from Michael’s. The pattern papers are off center and meet in the bottom right corner with a few more pearls under the lace in the lower right corner.
Sending You Sunshine

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.
Hi everyone! Today I thought I would share with you my “Just For You” Elephant Card and Gift Card Holder. I made this to give to my secret sister. I know she loves elephants and I wanted to make one that looked elegant.
I am pleased with the look of the card. Elle could have been popped up on double pop dots… her ears get lost at this angle.
As for the folds for the gift card…. I may have made a wrong turn somewhere but it worked out. You can see the correct way to make this card by watching this great video tutorial here. Here’s my card…. sorry, I know this isn’t the best photo .
The elephant is cut from the Cricut Create a Critter cartridge using the Cricut Expression. I believe she is cut (yes she, there is a bow… haha) at 3 inches. Edges inked with black Ditto ink.
The gray papers ran through the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug embossing folder using the Cuttlebug.
Bottom gray paper punched using EK Success Threading Water Boarder Punch
Pattern paper from DCWV The Luxury Stack
Gray and black ribbons are from AC Moore
“Just Saying” stamped with black ink
Glossy Accents used on the black of the ears, eyes, mouth and tail… not that you can tell. Terrible picture!
That’s it. Hope you like it. Go check out the Yoliebean’s video tutorials. She’s great.

Hi everyone! I thought I would share a card with you I made using the Cricut Create A Critter Cartridge and my Cricut Expression, incase you are looking for ideas for a winter type card. I used this card as Christmas cards for my Brother and Sister but can be altered to use now. The penguin has a scarf layer you can cut and replace the lights with the scarf… wa-la, a winter themed card just for you.
I used a standard white A2 size card base. Layered with DWCV textured green paper with a snowflake pattern paper I purchased from Wal-Mart from their 97 cent area. I inked all papers with brown ink.
I believe the penguin and layers are cut at 3 or 3.5 inches. I had to play around with sizing.. this guy has a really big head… haha. I ran the white layer of the penguin through the Divine Swirl CuttleBug embossing folder. The lights are from the reindeer cut on the Create A Critter. I really don’t remember the sizing. It was tricky to get the right size. I used glossy accents to cover the light bulbs to give them shine as well as using Stickles on the eyes.
I stamped all over the blue pattern paper and the penguin with a snowflake stamp also from the 97 cent bin at Wal-Mart using white ink.
I ran a piece of white grosgrain ribbon around the pattern paper and popped the penguin over the ribbon and stamped “sending warm fuzzies” under him in brown ink. I used my ATG gun to adhere everything together.
