Cricut Beautiful Shaker Card

Today I’m sharing a Cricut Beautiful Shaker Card for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge # 295 Sequins or other Embellishments. Sponsored by SpieglMom. Projects are to have at least one Cricut cut and Sequins or other embellishments.

For my project, I decided to make a shaker card using the Yellow Frame from the Stand & Salute Cartridge.

Cricut Beautiful Shaker Card

Cut pink texture card stock at 3.25 in wide. Use the cut image to then cut a window out of a piece of fun foam. Cut a piece of white cardstock the same size as the top, this will be the back.

I find that cutting a back the same size as the front makes putting a shaker card together much easier.

White card stock cut at 4 in x 5.25 was used for the background. The Tim Holtz stencil and Texture paste was used. Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist colors: Party Pin and Cranberry Zing colored the background. Rouge Chalk in from Brutus Monroe was used around the edges of the A2 Greeting card.

On the back piece of the shaker card stamp the Botanical Background stamp from Brutus Monroe with Embossing Ink. Then spray with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists: Party Pink and Turquoise Blue.

Stamp the Botanical Background stamp on the pink shaker card front with Rouge Chalk ink from Brutus Monroe.

On a scrap of white card stock stamp the word Beautiful from the Beautiful stamp set from Brutus Monroe with Embossing ink, emboss with black powder. Use distress blending tool to add Rouge chalk ink to the edge after trimming down and rounding the corners of this piece.

Assemble the shaker card by attaching the fun foam to the Botanical background. Fill shaker card with sequins, butterfly sequins, and hole-less beads. Place shaker card top with acetate over fun foam.

Add 3D dots to the back of Beautiful sentiment and attach to lower right corner of the card.

Sweetheart Valentine Card

It’s a Sweetheart Valentine Card project on the blog today. The Fatabulous Circut Challenge Blog (aka FCCB) has a bi weekly challenge. This weeks challenge theme is #294 Valentines Day.

DL.Art is the sponsor for this weeks challenge. To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project and if it’s not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used. If you use a Cricut Explore machine, at least one cut must be from the Cricut catalog of images.

If it isn’t a card, you will get two entries into the drawing!

For this project I decided to use the Sweetheart cut file from the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge file M46C0D. This was cut on red card stock to fit on a standard A2 card. This was perfect for my Sweetheart Valentine Card project.

The couple featured on the card is from Calico Collage. Romantic Lovers is a digital download found on Calico Collage’s Etsy site. I’m a new member of her Design Team and loving the ability to work with her designs.

Also used in this card: Canvas Corp Red & White Diamond card stock. This paper is so yummy. I thought it was perfect as the background for this card, don’t you just love it too?

Of course I have to use inks on cards some where, and this card is no different. Brutus Monroe’s Detail Ink – Raven was used to give more definition to the edges of the layers. Used Tim Holtz Vintage Photo Distressed ink to add a little more distressed look to the photo as well.

The corrugated paper under the Sweethearts word was something in my stash. Not sure where it came from, but it has great texture. Reminds me of the days when Oreos had that great black texture in the bottom of the package. Oreos, yum..

Recently I went on an Ebay shopping spree and purchased a few dies from China. These little dies were very inexpensive and I think I’m addicted to them now.

The little self adhesive pearls are from Paper Studios. What I like to do is pick these up when there is a sale at Hobby Lobby, then I know I’ll have a supply of these on hand.

A process video was made, have a look.

I’m enjoying being on the FCCB Design Team. Being on the team is helping me to use my Cricut more often and learn more. Check out the FCCB site and join in the challenge.

Cricut Globe – Let it Snow

Today I’m sharing my Cricut Globe – Let it Snow project for the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog Challenge #293 – Snow Sponsored by Pretty Cute Stamps. Challenge this week is to have a snow theme and use at least one Cricut cut in the project.

Cricut Globe - Let it Snow

What a great time to use a snow globe than this? The globe is from the Joys of the Season Cricut Cartridge. It was cut at 4.5 in. tall. The top most layer was removed as I wanted to stamp on the top layer and not have holes cut through the image.

Used Brutus Monroe snowflake stamps from the Oh Deer set. Stamped in Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Tumbled Glass and Brutus Monroe Ink Cornflower.

Brutus Monroe Stamp Set Oh Deer was used. This little fat deer makes me laugh every time I see him. Stamped with Brutus Monroe Detail Ink – Raven on a scrap of white card stock and then fussy cut. Water colored with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist – Cork, Tattered Leather and It’s Black. Also used White High Impact paint by Tattered Angels.

Cricut Globe - Let it Snow

VersaMark Stamp pad was mashed onto Deer image and snow globe then Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder was applied and heat set. This gives the appearance of being inside a snow globe.

Let it Snow from Printworks Stamps was stamped in Brutus Monroe Embossing ink, embossed with black embossing powder.

Tim Holtz Distressed Ink Brushed Corduroy applied to base of the snow globe.

Cut white card stock at 4 in. x 5.25 emboss with Cuttlebug Snowflake embossing folder. Use Tim Holtz Disressed Ink Tumbled Glass and blending tool to add color around the edge. Mash VersaMark stamp pad to embossed image, cover with Ranger Clear Holographic embossing powder, heat set.

Blue card stock cut at 4.23 in. x 5.47 in. adhered as the first layer on a standard A2 greeting card. Layer Snowflake background. Assemble snow globe and adhere on top of embossed layer. Use pop dots to adhere Deer on top.
