I had decided to make my Cricut creation from the Paper Pups cartridge, which is one of my favorites. I had intended to make a Christmas card but as I was building my card using my Gypsy, suddenly I had a scrapbook page instead! In fact, it's my first scrapbook page I've made in over a year and a half.
The pup and presents were cut at 2.5 inches. I used American Crafts cardstock, which is my favorite cardstock to use with the Cricut. The Christmas title along the left edge is from a DCWV Holiday Stack from a years past. The photo mat paw prints came from border punch.
I added a googlie eye to the pup for fun. The dog bones on the Christmas tree are also from Paper Pups. I cut them at .5 inches in order to get them to fit on my tree to look like Christmas garland.
I used my black glaze pen to "string" the bones together.
Looking through my google reader today I found a challenge that I made a card for a few days back without even knowing it! The challenge is at the Corrosive Challenge Blog and it's to make a card for a kid. 95% of my cards fit into this category! =)
This fun summer time digi is from Pixie Dust Studios. I love the tilted head of the doggie. I colored the image with copic markers and cut with nestabilities.
Looks like the Christmas in July blog hop will be postponed a day. Come back tomorrow to see my scrapbook page! =)
I love this stamp and this sentiment together! The stamp is from Kraftin Kimmie. I colored her with copic markers, cut her out to the best of my ability. The sentiment stamp was a purchase I made earlier in the year at a stamping convention.
Coming up tomorrow I'm participating in the My Cricut Craft Room's Christmas in July Blog Hop ! Stay tuned to see the first scrapbook page I've created in a year and half! I've made lots and lots of cards, but no scrapbook pages! I had a blast making it.
Lately I've had this thing about coloring hair purple. I'll be posting more of my current hair coloring preference.
This cutie girl is from the Greeting Farm. I colored her with copics. The sentiment is from the $1 bin at Michaels. I also colored the pink sentiment with copics. the dotted paper is from my "scrap box".
Funny fact--- when I was four or five years old I wanted to be a tennis star! I don't think I had ever even played but decided it sounded good to me at that point. LOL I had completely forgotten about that until I started this blog post.
This is a Kraftin Kimmie stamp. I colored her with copic markers. I cut her with a Nestabilities die. The sentiment is from a $1 stamp set. The blue paper was embossed with the cuttlebug.
This card is heading to Operation Write Home.
Thanks so much for looking. Have an awesome day!
I'm participating in the Hambo Hoedown again this week! I did get the freebie digi to play with but since it's not really my type of digi, I knew that I wouldn't actually use the card I decided to re-use my previous weeks digi! The challenge was to make a gate fold card. It's the first one I've done!
I colored my digi with copic markers. I used the oval nestabilities on the digi and the shadow.
I decided to give street corner Josh some purple hair. I colored him with copic markers, but left the lamp post uncolored intentionally. I cut him out with a nestability and inked the edges. The green background paper is embossed with the cuttlebug. The sentiment was made on my computer. Oh yeah, the stamp is from Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps.
Chloe is cruizin around dropping presents off and it's not even Christmas yet! This cutie is a Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp. I colored her with copic markers. I used a Grand Nestabilities for the cut shape. The sentiment was made on my computer.
I was able to participate in a lot of challenges this week! This one is for Pixie Dust Studios. The challenge is to make a girly girl card with ribbon/bow. I love this digi...I'm rooting for her to get out of the house work and get on with the business of being a princess. I colored her with copic markers, and cut her out with nestabilities. I used a pink ribbon behind the image and added some flowers with a brad in the center. The sentiment is stamped and colored in to match my pink theme.
This is my entry into Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamp Challenge #51--Christmas in July! This is the the gorgeous Christmas Tree Ruby. She's looking very happy to be decorating her tree! I colored Ruby with copic markers. Cut her with a nestabilities. The sparkly paper is from DCWV Christmas stack that is probably a few years old. I used an edge punch on the top of the sparkly paper. The sentiment is from a $1 stamp set, the banner was cut from my Cricut.
Kraftin Kimmie Challenge #86 is to make a card with a tag in it. I had inked up Rosabelle earlier this week and decided to use her. She's colored with copic markers and cut with the oval nestabilities. The tag was made on my Cricut. I used the sentiment on talullahbelle because I like that sentiment best. I added some bright pink ribbon to the tag. I like the green background pattern paper because it brings out the green in the mushroom.
Every year I participate in the Humane Society's Dog-a-thon walk with Patti, Buster and Belle (when she's not in heat or having pups! She's missed it three times!). This year I'm trying a different tactic to drum up donations. I made some yummmmmmmmmy sugar cookies to give in exchange for a $5 donation.
I used all scraps in making the labels. I had the clear dog bags from previous projects. I'm very pleased with how they turn out. Sure hope they all sell!
Thanks for stopping by. Have an awesome day. Woof!
This little girl is from a fun summertime set of stamps by Pink Cat Studios. The image and the blue shadow paper are cut from nestabilities. The kisses & hugs stamp and the ticket are from A Muse Studios. Added in a layered set of flowers with a brad flower in the middle.
On this image I inked the edges. Embossed the white strip of paper and added a scalloped sentiment that I had made on my computer.
