Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge & Cricut Cardz Challenge #34

For this week's challenge on Emma's blog we were to use the cartridge Celebrations and make a birthday themed card. The challenge on Cricut Cardz was to create a card with a cake, cupcake, cookies or candy and any cartridges, colors or theme you'd like. So I decided to use a cupcake from the Celebrations cartridge and then my card would meet the requirements for both challenges. Whoo Hoo!!!!

I think I kind of got carried way with all the sparkle on this card. I used glitter cardstock for the frosting on my cupcake with pink Stickles added to the top. The same glitter cardstock was used under the embossed background which was sprayed with shimmer mist. Top that off with the silver metallic paper used for the cupcake liner! Lots of sparkle on this one!!

Hope everyone is having a fantastic weekend and thanks for stopping by my blog!!!

Christmas in July Challenge-The Cuttlebug Spot

I made this card for the Christmas in July challenge over on The Cuttlebug Spot site. I am loving all of these Christmas in July challenges because then at least I will have a few of my Christmas cards done before December!
I just love this cute little penguin from the Create-a-Critter cartridge. I used my Gypsy to hide the facial cuts and then used one of my  Peachy Keen stamps for the darling little face. The embossed background is sprayed with Shimmer Mist so it really sparkly although it doesn't show up in the picture as I had hoped. I also added some Ice Crystal Stickles to the snowflake brad.

Thanks for stopping by!!

Christmas in July Challenge # 3- Cardz TV

I was blog hopping yesterday and came across this great site of Mary's on Cardz TV and decided to join in on her Christmas in July challenge. For this challenge we were to use ribbon, buttons, or lace--could be all three or just one. I tried to work all three into my card but just couldn't get it to work so I only have ribbon and button on mine. This was a fun challenge and who can resist getting a jump on making their Christmas cards!!
It doesn't show up in the picture but I used shimmer mist to spray the white embossed background and also the ornament so it is really sparkly!! Gotta love the sparkle!!

Thanks for stopping by and hope everyone has a fantastic week!!!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge- Wild Card Cartridge-Holiday Theme

This week on My Creative Time, Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge is to use the Wild Card cartridge and create a holiday themed card for your favorite holiday. I was so happy to have this challenge as I had bought this cartridge because I just HAD to have it and I'm ashamed to say, had never used it. Now I have found so many cards I want to make on there!! So thanks Emma for the challenge-it was a fun one!!

I chose to make the Christmas card and envelope. It is hard to see in the picture but I used a gold pen on the "Merry Christmas". You also cannot see the inside of the envelope but I used the red and while polka dot paper for the liner for it.

Have a great weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

This week's challenge on My Creative Time with Emma is to use the Zoo Balloo cartridge or use any older cartridge to create an animal themed card or scrapbook page. I don't have Zoo Balloo so I went with the New Arrival cartridge to create my card.

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!!

Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge for this Week

For Emma's Throwback Thursday challenge for this week, we were to make a baby themed card or scrapbook page and use the cartridge New Arrival. I love making baby cards and actually had a new great, great niece born this week that I needed to make a card for so I was thrilled with the challenge!! Love this cartridge so much I ended up making two baby cards with it!!

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!!!
Happy Stamping!
