Tigger card

This is a cute little card with one of my favorite characters - Tigger.  I love how this cut looks like he's bouncing, so I thought he would be perfect for Wobble Wednesdays challenge.  I put him on an Action Wobble.  I added a couple of MS punch butterflies and some ribbon and the sentiment "What's Up"  I thought that was perfect for this card.

What's the Scoop

This card is a cute little ice cream cone.  I cut it out of Cricut Simply Charmed at 3".  nd the Elegant Edges for the 2nd layer.  I used my MS score board to make a criss cross pattern on the cone.  Then I inked it up with Tim Holtz Tea Dye distress ink.  I stamped the top ice cream with Pechy Keen Corney kis and the little drops of ice cream also using PK.  I used bakers twine and tied on two little flip flop buttons.

First Christmas card of the year

Every November I start going crazy trying to make all the Thanksgiving and Christmas cards for the year, there is never enough time.  So this year, I decided to make some earlier in the year, if there is a challenge that it would work with.  So Fantabulous Cricut challenge has one that is perfect.  Use a church, bell or cross and the color blue.  It also must have a cricut cut.

I used the Christmas cart, cut at 4".  DCWV Winter Wonderland paper that I inked around with Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass distress ink.  I added a little glitter in the snow and around the church.  Some stash ribbon and stamp.

Another Fathers Day card

ThiI card is for my husband from the kids.  I used the barbeque cut on the From My Kitchen Cricut cart.  I used the Ultra Thick Embossing Powder on the grill to make it shiny

I cut the spiral smoke and the steak from the Block Party cart.  I think it turned out cute!

Father's Day card

This is the card I made for my father in law.  It's a cute cut I found on the Simply Charmed cart.  I made it into a shaped card. I cut a second copy of the cut for the top layer and inked around the edges using Tim Holtx Tea Dye distress ink.  I added two little collar buttons.

Wobble Wednesday Challenge

This challenge was a little more difficult, you have to use 2 action Wobbles in your project.  I decided to use 1 on the image and 1 on the sentiment.  I really like how it turned out!

The cut is from Mickey and Friends.  I love Tinkerbell.  I used an EK punch for the sentiment.  The sentiment is from my stash.

Mod Podge Frame

This is a frame I upscaled for my mother-in-law's birthday later this month.  I took a clearance frame I got at target for $.99.  Then I tore up some tissue paper I got from the Dollar Tree, into little pieces.  I put it on with Martha Stewarts decoupage glue and sealer.

While this was drying, I cut out a bunch of flowers and leaves using my Spellbinders Bitty blossoms.  I also cut out some butterflies using my Cricut Kate's ABC's.  I also stamped the sentiment Happy Birthday to you using my Peachy Keen stamps.  I put the sentient on an Action Wobble.  I think the photo frame turned out so pretty.

Here are some other photos of closeups.

Freedom card

This challenge was to make a card for Memorial Day, Military or Poppy.  I used my Stand and Salute cartridge for Freedom and the eagle.  I used a new Peachy Keen stamp set for the flag and USA.  I inked the flag with red except in the corner where I inked it with the blue.  I like the rustic look .  I used some red, white and blue bakers twine.

Aurora Birthday card

One of my grandnieces birthday is later this month and she loves the princesses, she also loves to dance!  So I decided to make her birthday card with a Disney Princess dancing from Happily Ever After.  I put them on an Action Wobble so they would look even more like they were dancing. 

I added a princess ribbon a leaf and a couple of flowers.  I also added some stickles on the petticoat of her dress to make it look more like lace. 
The inside of the card is stamped with my new Peachy Keen stamp from the Pocket Posies set.
I think she will like this card.
