November 2013 Stamp Club

I missed going to Stamp Club this month so I had them put all my cards in bags and then I put them together at my house.  I know that mine are different than what they did, but I used all the same pieces!  I think they all turned out pretty good!  Missed you guys!

Each year I make a Thanksgiving card for our employees and this one is from a free cut that the Cricut had.  Was so easy to do and the wording was easy to cut out too even though it was so skinny.  Usually have trouble cutting out items that are that thin.  Hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving!

Worm on the Fence

This card was all cut out with the Cricut.  I made the fence by welding long rectangles and then after it was printed out, just angled the top ends with a pair of scissors.  I don't have a fence in my collection of cartridges (gasp!), so had to make my own.  I like that you can make things with The Craft Room if you don't have the image you need.  You can create right on the screen by piecing together items and welding them, so much fun!  Click on the picture to enlarge it to see my little worm crawling on the fence!  This turned out to be a happy card, makes me smile!

Just Because Cat

I like these rainbow type cards.  I made one a few posts back that was listed under Happy Thoughts and now this one, Just Because.  I got the idea of the star-burst or rainbow from one of the Splitcoast Challenges.  I cut all the pieces and edged them in brown, then laid them all out and it makes a perfect start-burst.  Made several of these cards with different stamps on the front.  And the hardest part for me is always paper matching.  Well finally got one of my little 4x6 (or 5x7)books of papers that we all collect and used several out of one of the books and all the papers go together perfectly!  Hope you have a great day 'just because'!

October 2013 Stamp Club

Opps, really late in posting these cards!  These are cards from our October Stamp Club.  As always, I changed up a few of them to suit my needs, but all were the same general idea.  I really like the bottom right card, looks like a little file folder!  Thanks, Diane, for putting up with me for always changing things!

50th Birthday

A friend turned 50 this year, so had to come up with a 50th birthday card for her!  Made the 50 with my Cricut and made an easel card so that after you open it the 50 can stay popped up.  For the Happy Birthday, it needed to be raised so that the top part of the card would have a brace so that it could stand up.  This was made with Shrink Plastic!  I stamped a rather large Happy Birthday directly onto a piece of white Shrink Plastic.  Made sure it was dry and then heated it up and had fun watching it shrink- it is always fun to watch that!  Then I just taped to inside of card and I had my thick brace.  Worked out perfect and I know that she had a great time on her special day!

Bible Verses

I wanted to  make some cards that had bible verses on them.  Found another blog (Word Art Wednesday) that had some free downloads, and came up with these four.  The inside I left blank so that you could write your own thoughts on the inside.  All of them are basically the same, but all are different.  Used different Cuttlebug Folders and embellishments.

Acorn and Leaves

A rather simple card, yet turned out rather nice.  Acorn and leaves cut with Cricut.  Used a square of burlap, but the weave was too tight.  So pulled out some of the strings to open it up more.  Used Floral Flourishes Cuttlebug Folder for background paper.  Paper was same color as card, so pop-dotted it onto front of card for dimension.  Happy Fall!

Halloween Cards

These cards are free cuts that were on the Cricut a while back.  Normally don't send out Halloween cards, but thought that these four were really cute.  Have a new Brick Cuttlebug Folder and was able to use it on the first two, really like the look of it!  The ghost was put on with a Wobble Spring, so you could actually make him move.  And the little mice on the bottom card . . . had them running around in the inside of the card too!  Hope you had a safe Halloween!
