Another Christmas card

Here is another card I put together. I used Jubilee cricut cartridge for the "Merry Christmas" and Christmas Noel for the bears.
This one is a VERY simple card. I used plain card stock and coredinations card stock.

I "poped" this bear up a little for some diminsion. That's all for now. Thanks for looking! Have a wonderful day!

New card

Here is a card I put together today. I used Christmas Noel cricut cartridge.
The red background and trees is from Citrus cardstock pad, the red on the church and shadow on Happy Christmas are plain cardstock as are the snow, star and cream on the title. I used a yellow marker to color in the center of the star, it cuts as two pieces.
I used my glue pen and glitter to add a little sparkle to the trees and snow. The church was cut at 4 1/2 in. the trees and Happy Christmas were cut at 2 in. The star was cut at 2 3/4 in.
Here you can see I "pop dotted" the church for a little added dimension. Now only about 29 more to make. LOL
Will try to make a few diffrent ones to post on here soon, thanks for looking! Hope you have a wonderful day!

New card

Here is a new card I made today for my best friends birthday. Hope she liked it.
The base is plain cardstock, printed paper is from "Totally Girl" from My Minds Eye, the green is from coredinations nostalgia stack.
The font and martini glass are from Jubilee cricut cartridge. Ribbon is from Hobby Lobby.
This was a very simple card, but, I think it turned out pretty, I like the colors. Hope she enjoyed it too. On the inside you can see I use a piece of the printed paper with a piece of white cardstock that I inked with a copper color of ink ( Martha Stewart). By the way, I cut the base at 6x9 and folded in half. The font and glass were cut at 2".
Well thats all I have for now. Hope you enjoyed looking, thanks for stopping by and please leave a comment. Thanks and have a wonderful day!

Jitterbuggin challenge #14 Born to be Wild

Here's my entry for the Jitterbuggin challenge # 14 Born to be Wild. The challenge was to follow the sketch, add a cricut animal and to use stripes. So Bear with me......Also entered in Paper Playtime Challenge.
The card is made from brown coredinations, the stipe and blue behind the bear were from the scrap pile. I used Campout cricut cartridge for the bear and a simple hand written "Bear with me" with a strand of jute tied at each end.
Here is a close up of the sentiment. I did ink the edges of both the stripe and blue papers with brown ink for a rustic feel.
Here you can see that the bear and sentiment have been pop dotted, for a little more dimension.
Thanks for looking. Please feel free to leave comments, would love to hear from you. Hope you have a wonderful day!

More Thank you cards

Here are a couple more cards I made the other day.
I used mostly scraps. The ribbon and flower stamp I got out of the dollar bin at Target. I used inkjet card stock, I cut them down some and rounded the edge of the front flap. The font is from Jasmine cricut cartridge.
Here's one of the cards a little closer.

Thank you cards

Here are some cards I made while at my sisters house yesterday.
I needed to make some "Thank you" cards to send out to everyone who gave gifts to my daughter for her 2nd birthday. So if you see this before the card gets to you, you get a sneak peak of what your getting. LOL

Here is one of the cards, this one and 3 others I made have the white scallop.

This one has a brown scallop.
The brown is coredinations cardstock, all the pinks are from My Minds Eye Totally Girl ( I think, they were in the scap bag so not positive but pretty sure.) The ribbon came from Hobby Lobby. The base is plain white cardstock cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2 ( card is not folded in half, left one side a little longer than the other ).
That's all I have for today, hope to do more scapping soon. Thank you for looking and hope you liked it, please feel free to leave a comment love to hear from you! Thanks and have a wonderful day!!

Gift Card Holders

Here are some gift card holders I put together today and last night. This one I didn't have the right color of ribbon to go with it, so I just used what I had for an example. The papers are just some from the scraps bag, ribbon is from Wal-mart (years ago) and the buttons are also from Wal-mart. I used a Martha Stewart corner punch on the top corners.

For the buttons, I just knotted one end of the ribbon and put it through the holes on the back side button first then the front one, pulling the ribbon back through the hole to the back. Make the ribbon long enough to go around the holder at least once. I made mine long enough to go around and wrap around front button a couple of times and back around to wrap around the back button a couple times.  Sorry I didn't measure.
Here is the back of my card holder. You could do the oppisite and have the ribbon end on the front .
This one I just put a ribbon rose in the center and put a couple brads on the sides.

This one I just glued the two sides together cut the flower from some printed paper and used the corner punch on it, punched a hole on the side and put the ribbon thru and tied in a knot.
Hope you enjoyed looking. Please leave comments, I'd love to hear from you.
