You're Snow.........

Morning Crafty Friends!! Hope your week is going great. I was off work the last two days and got to get in my crafty room. Today is my day to showcase a project at Cardz TV Gallery. I got the Frozen cartridge last week and didn't have a chance to play with it. I just had to make a card. So that is what I am showcasing today. And of course one of Mary's stamps!!! I cut Olaf. Doesn't he look so happy? The pattern paper is from the Doodlebug Design-Frosty Friends 6x6 pad. I cut snow drifts and coated them and Olaf in White Ink of Stella. I used the Clear Ink of Stella on the colored parts of Olaf. I added some Doodlebug Christmas Assortment Sprinkles and then finished my card off with a sentiment from the 'Snow Day' stamp set.
I hope ya'll have been visiting Cardz TV Gallery to check out the projects that my DT Sister's have been showcasing each day, Monday thru Friday. If you haven't, then I can assure you that you have been missing some awesomeness for sure!!!!
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

Rachelle Birthday Bash Blog Hop



Good morning everyone!! We are so glad you have decided to join our blog hop honoring our wonderful friend Rachelle's birthday. Happy Birthday Rachelle!!!!
If you got here from Deb's blog then you are in the right place. If you just decided to stop by, well thank you. How about joining us for our blog hop? You will really enjoy all of the projects that these talented ladies have made. Just start at the beginning with Rachelle. She has some awesome blog candy to giveaway too!!! Make sure you read the rules for how to be in the draw to win.
In honor of Rachelle's birthday, I have made two cards.
This first card I used an SVG from My Scrap Chick called Bee-e. I cut it out using my Cricut Explore. I added some clear Wink of Stella to it's wings and Glossy Accents to the eyes. I embossed the bg using the Cuttlebug Honeycomb embossing folder. The sentiment on the front is from the 'Birds and Bees' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. I added some Bo Bunny-Modern Miss Jewels to the corners of the sentiment piece and popped it up. On the inside, I used the border embossing folder from the Honeycomb set. The inside sentiment is from the 'Heartfelt Basics' stamp set from Papertrey Ink. I finished the inside with some more of the Bo Bunny Jewels.


The second card is a cut file from the Silhouette Store. It is called Bronto Dinosaur and file # 85866. I also cut the envelope that goes with it. It is file #85869. These are from Snapdragon Snippets. This file makes an a7 card. Very simple and easy to make using my Silhouette Cameo. I used the pieces, little dinosaur and dinosaur feet to put on the inside. I think it is perfect for the little guy in your life that's having a birthday.


Well, that is it for me. I hope you like my cards!!!!
Oh, wait. I have some blog candy to give away, too!! Please just leave one comment and a way for me to get in touch with you should you win.

In honor of your birthday...

Good Monday morning!! Today is the start of a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. Our wonderfully talented DT Emily is hosting this week. The challenge is to make a shaped card.
I decided to make my own shaped card. Using my Explore, I took this cute cut from the 'Smiley Cards' cartridge, ungrouped the pieces, make a copy of the base of the cake, flipped it and welded it together. I just love how it turned out!!! I used some Clear Wink of Stella on the candle flames and the blacks of the eyes are coated in glossy accents. I used some Pebbles, Inc-Candy Dots to decorate the icing. The sentiment is from the 'Happy Days' stamp set and the inside one is from the 'Foodie Punnies' set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the shaped cards that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!!! While you are there, check the sidebar for the rules for our challenges. Then head to your crafty space and create a shaped card using your Cricut.
Can't wait to see your cards!!!

Wet 'n' Wild!

Morning Crafty Friends!!! Hope you had a great weekend and are ready for a new challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2. I have the honor of hosting the challenge this week!! Since it is so hot most places, I decided to go with a swimming &/or water theme this week. Make a project using a Cricut cut that has to do with water.
I've used this cut (the only reason I bought this one) from the 'Fun in the Sun' cartridge before. I cut it out and put it all together. That was way before my Explore and the Print and Cut!! I decided to Print and Cut it and use it this week. I cut two so I could pop her up. Then I got to thinking, she needs to be on an action wobble!!! So here she is, wobble away in the ocean!!! The sentiments that I used are from the 'A Day at the Beach' stamp set from Mary-Cardz TV Stamps. The bg pattern paper is from an old American Crafts set that I have.
Head on over to Bitten By The Bug 2 and check out the creations that my DT Sister's made. Awesomeness for sure!!!

With Heartfelt Sympathy

Evening to all of my crafty friends!! I hardly ever post in between my challenge team posts. But I bought some great Stampin' Up products and wanted to show you what I made with some of them.
The card base is Crumb Cake.
I added a layer of Bermuda Bay.
I stamped the sentiment on a White Tea Lace Doily using Versa Mark and them used Gold Embossing Powder.
The stamp set I used is 'Heartfelt Sympathy'.
I added a Very Vintage Button with some Linen Thread ran through the middle holes and tied in a bow.
I made a banner to go behind the doily using Rich Razzleberry.
The only thing that isn't from Stampin' Up is the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch that I used. Those are punched from the Rich Razzleberry. I also coated them in Clear Wink of Stella. I realized after I took the pictures that I failed to do the one on the inside!! Will get that one done!
For the inside I layered Bermuda Bay, Rich Razzleberry and then Bermuda Bay again for the sentiment. It is also embossed.
The base idea for this card is in the latest Stampin' Up catalog. I just changed it up a little bit and made it like I wanted it.
If you have a need or just have a want for some Stampin' Up products, just visit my awesome friend Edna at Inkspirations With Edna. She is very talented and does great videos!! If you head over to her place, tell her that Sharon sent ya.
Hope ya'll like my card!!!! :)

fun Food

Morning Crafty Friends!! Are ya ready for Monday morning and a new fun challenge at Bitten By The Bug 2? Our wonderfully talented DT Sister Melanie has challenged us and you to make a project using a Cricut cut of a food item. Did you know that today is Onion Ring Day? I didn't either until Melanie told us. How about that. I decided to go with a layout this week. I know!!!! A layout instead of a card!!! I used the print and cut feature on my Cricut Explore for all of the cuts. Fast and easy!!! The picnic table is from the Camp Out cartridge. The Food is from the Fast Food cartridge. The Title is from Baby Steps and the Sun is from the Sesame Street Seasons cartridges. I'm really pleased with how it turned out. I think that our oldest grandson (16 yrs.old) could eat that tall burger!!!!
How about heading on over to Bittjen By The Bug 2 and check out the projects that my DT Sisters have made. Awesomeness for sure!!!
