Wow, I actually got in two cards today =) This one was created specially for MoMo’s Tuesday Challenge. She challenged us to make a card with a princess theme. I decided to make a princess of the flowers and named her Princess Flora. The princess is from the Simply Charmed cartridge — what a super cute cartridge. This is the first cut I made from it but I can see myself using this one often! Using my Gypsy, I created a shaped card using the weld feature. I use a sheer fabric on the dress and my absolute favorite stamps – Peachy Keen — for the face. Hope you enjoy!

Hi everyone! Hope you all are staying nice an warm. We got hit by a big snow storm today which cancelled school for my girls. So, we decided to make a card this evening. My daughter just loves cupcakes so that was the basis of our card. I like this one so much that I’m entering it into two contests (1) Peachy Keen Lets Face it Fridays where we have to make a thank you card with a PK face stamp and (2) Pink by Design Team challenge where we had to make a card with a stamp sentiment for a chance to be part of Sara’s design team. How exciting!!

Robyn at My Pink Stamper is having a Design Team Challenge. How exciting! She is filling the last two spots on her design team with this challenge. The challenge is to create a project of your choice using your favorite cartridge and Robyn’s favorite colors of pink, brown, and green plus one other color of our choice (I chose red as my other color). My favorite cartridge is Create a Critter. All of the critters on it are just so darn adorable. I love pink and brown, so the color scheme was an easy one for me. I used my two favorite stamps — Peachy Keen and My Pink Stamper. I think it came out super, super cute. It would be soooo awesome to be selected as part of the MPS design team! I’m keeping my fingers crossed and my toes too!

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.

My 10 year old daughter really, really wanted to made a video of a card. She had been watching me do it so she wanted to give it a try. So, I had her create her own card and I video tapped her while she made it. I pretty much so let her have free reign on both the card and the video. My only stipulation was that she make a Christmas card. So, I officially have my first “guest” designer =). I think she did an awesome job on the card and on the video.

–Update: My PK Snow Woman made Top 5 on PK’s Face it Friday Challenge. Yay!!
I created this super cute snow woman for the Peachy Keen mini challenge. The challenge was to create a project using polka dots and white as your main color. I was dying for a chance to use my new Peachy Keen face stamp set. PK has to be my all time favorite stamps. They stamp to just about anything — including the white glitter paper I used for this challenge, stamp so clear, and are so darn adorable !!
I was also anxious to use my new Winter Frolic cartridge that came in the mail today. I ordered it from CricutMachine.com last week when they were having their Black Friday sale. Awesome, awesome prices! I created a shaped snowman card by welding the snowman blackout with my Gypsy. This was the first time I’ve done this and I’m happy to say it was sooo easy to do. I don’t know how I ever crafted without my Gypsy.
I used a DCWV premium paper stack white glitter cardstock for the snowman. And, I used DCWV blue and white polka dot for my card base. I also decided to polka dot her scarf, using gems and my iRock. Hope you enjoy my PK Snow Woman!
Erin has an awesome challange to do a sassy card. Here is what I came up with. This is the first project I did on my new Gypsy. I’m getting the hange of it =) This is also my first tent card. Since Erin was having so much fun doing tent cards, I decided to give it a try.
I used the Rock Princess cart along with my iRock, Stickles, and Nesting Flowers die. I also used a bunch of my scraps to make the sassy girl. I tried to force myself on this project to used as many of my scraps as possible. I inked the edges of just about all pieces. There are a lot of little pieces to this girl. I used my computer for the sentiment and then cut it out with a nesting flower die on my Cuttlebug.
