Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card

This project has a lot in it today. A Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card.

Stamping, Digital Ephemera and Cricut Greeting Card

In the past week I have become a member of two design teams. With this project I’m showing how to use items that meet both of the design team requirements.

The first design team I want to tell you about is the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog (aka FCCB).

Being a part of this blog will challenge me to use my Cricut more often in projects. My biggest hope is that I’ll learn more techniques on how to use my Cricut and become a better user of this device. Hopefully this will benefit you as my audience as well.

The second team I want to tell you about is Calico Collage.

The designer Norella puts together beautiful collage sheets for the public to purchase and use. Looking through her designs I knew that these were a perfect fit for me to use in my art creations. My hope is that you will enjoy seeing these images and will be inspired by what you see.

For today’s project for the FCCB the challenge was to use something new. Since I’m new to the Calico Collage team I chose one of her Dashing Men images for this project paired with the Circut cut file: Home Decor Frame M3C018.

Here is a video of how the card was made.

This was a fun card to make, that helped me use things I had on hand. Making this card also made me think about my Cricut Cut files a little differently. I’m looking at the files in new ways to figure out how I can use these in more of my projects instead of every once and a while.

How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps

Today I’ll show you How to make a thinking of you card with Christmas Stamps. I got the idea because I’ve been doing so many Christmas cards and had the stamps already on my desk. But it is time to switch gears and make non Christmas cards.

Looking at the Sketched Holiday Christmas Stamps from Brutus|Monroe. Which right now are offered in a limited edition card set. I saw that the pine branches and pine cones would make a great card.

Pulling some supplies from my stash I knew I could make a great Thinking of You card with these Christmas Stamps. I used the Script embossing folder from Cuttlebug, the embossing diffuser from Tim Hotz, gold and metallic green embossing powder, Versa Mark ink, Tim Hotlz Distressed ink and Tattered Angels Glimmer  Mists – Cork, Coffee Shop and Blarney.

The paper used was bright white cardstock and some textured green cardstock that was in my stash. I have so much paper that I have no idea where the green came from. My goal this past year was to use up as much of my stash has I can. I’ve been making progress, but I still have lots of stuff to use!

The top piece is cut at 3 inches square and then a green layer 3.25 inches. The next white layer was 4 inches by 5.25 inches. The last green layer was just shy of 5.5 inches by 4.25 inches. This last layer I like to make just a tad smaller than my standard A2 card (8.5 x 5.5 card folded in half).

Not sure where I got the Thinking of you stamp. Wish that stamp companies would print their names on the sheets of acrylic stamps. When the packaging is gone you don’t know where it came from unless you were smart and remembered to write it down or place the items in a notebook. Silly me forgot to do that. lol

There is a video of the whole process, please watch and let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for stopping by the blog today.

A Card using the Butterfly Digital File from Brutus Monroe

Today I’m sharing A Card using the Butterfly Digital File from Brutus Monroe. I’ve had the honor of becoming a member of the Inspiration Team.

This first assignment was a tough one as I didn’t have any physical product. I had to think creatively and use a digital file. These digital cut files are made to pair with stamp sets that are offered at Brutus Monroe.  It was fun being creative, pulling supplies from my stash and using the butterfly digital file to create this card.

Check out the post and let me know what you thought for my first post with Brutus Monroe.
