Good morning to my lovely blog readers. I can't believe it's Monday already- what happened to my weekend? I am still in the midst of sorting my office, Cricut has been so generous with us Circle DT girls, I ran out of room to store my carts, so I am trying a new system with them. It's taken me several hours to revamp tho, and I still have about half my carts to go.
In the meantime, I am still sticking to my guns and making more family and me time as well. Today starts a new step for me, and we'll see how that goes.
So for today, I only have a couple cards to share with you. And I hope to be back this week with at least one more post. Again, I am looking forward to offering up some nice prize packages, so please be sure to check in here.
Card #1. I used my Imagine machine, and cut out the scalloped oval, and the bracket shape. I embossed the bracket with seeing spots embossing folder, and the oval with swiss dots folder. and I put in a piece of UCutIt foam between them. I added on a couple little buttons and this big fun butterfly I cut from the Imagine as well ( it prints the color on there too) I layered all this on some American Crafts City Park paper, then added in a little bit of Pink Paislee houndstooth. I then used some glittered foam Thickers for my greeting.
I love white on white with dimension, it's so pretty!
Card #2. Going through my Pink Paislee box, I pulled out some of the pleated ribbon, I love this stuff, and the colors of the Bayberry Cottage are so pretty, one is lime ( HEART!!) and the other this beautiful berry color) which when I glanced at my City Park scraps and saw this balloon in felt, HAD to match with. I cut out some more of that pretty cloud paper, layered a simple plain blue paper, and a tiny strip of the colored stripe, then added on my pleated ribbon. Over that I added this Big Shotz die and Sizzix embossed plaid folder bracket shape. I added UCutIt foam ( by Glue Arts) under the clouds and the bit of bracket not under the ribbon. I added in some Pink Paislee glittered sticker- the brackets and my American Crafts fabric letters I sprayed in lime. ( Do you like that technique I shared? How many of you are going to create your own colors of letter stickers?)
I hope you like this card as much as I do!!
