I made this super cute Easter card for the Peachy Keen sketch challenge #49. This one was a little difficult at first, but once I cut out all the squares, it came together nicely. The cut is from Treasure Box Designs and I cut it using my Sure Cuts A Lot.

Hi! I quickly pulled together treat bags for my daughter’s 5th grade class and her gymnastic team and I wanted to share it with you. These are super simple and very quick to make. Sara just loves cupcakes so we used the Sweet Treats cartridge, her favorite cartridge. Enjoy.

Hi everyone! I love the color pink and had been wanting to create a pink Christmas card. My Pink Stamper gave me just the right opportunity to do so. Robyn’s challenge was to create a card with 2 shades of pink, 2 shades of blue, and black and this is what I came up with. I added a jingle bell to the hat.
Jolly Holidays Cartridge
My Pink Stamper sentiment
Pink and black cardstock
iRock and blue gems
Studio G snowflake stamp
Fine clear embossing powered
Tim Holtz distressed ink (broken china)
White and blue ink
Designer paper (I created see post below for tutorial)
My daughter came to me and asked me to make a card that she could send to a soldier overseas. Her Jr. High English class has a voluntary project to send cards to soldier and she wanted to participate. So, I let her pick the Cricut cut and then I designed the card with her.
I really wanted to give some new inking techniques a try, so I created this card using an embossing and inking technique to create my own paper.
- Using a Studio G snowflake stamp, I randomly stamped a white piece of cardstock using Versa Mark
- I then used fine white embossing power and a heat gun to set it
- Next, I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Broken China) with a Tim Holtz blender and inked the entire page, making darker and lighter areas. The ink will not adhere to the embossed snowflakes so they stay white.
- Finally, I sprayed the paper with Tattered Angels Glimer Mist (Dazzling Diamonds) to give it a frosty look.
I think it turned out awesome. I am entering it in the following challenges. Wish me luck!
