Card for a coworker

This is my card for Paper Temptress this week.

My goal was for more texture.  The base for this card is Aqua Basis.  The Aqua was also used for the cutout on the front.  It seemed I needed a darker color to accent the main image so the Teal Basis worked perfectly.  This cardstock is nice and thick so the distressing tool worked perfectly. The main card front is made from Opal Mica Metallic.  Using the mica metallic gave me a little sheen on the main image.  Finally Midnight Blue Vellum was used for the sentiment.  I accented FOR YOU with some blue stickles.

Thinking of you with flowers

I saw this cute little design on pinterest.  You could highlight anything in the cutouts.  In the post I saw they had little puppies peaking out of the holes.  I decided I wanted different colors of flowers.  I used pop dots to pop the flowers up.

The base for this card  and the tag are Baronial Ivory linen..  Love the slight texture.  The green layer is Spring Larch glitter
In the second picture you can see the shimmer of the glitter line and also the texture of the linen line of cardstock.  The flowers were stamped on cryogen that also has a little shimmer.

Purple Birthday

This was a late birthday card for my mother-in-law.  The middle flowers are a peg set from Rubber Stamp Tapestry.  I stamped the flowers on Sweet Tooth Pop Tones.

The base for the card is Fairway Mica Metallic.  I love this The mica metallic line of cardstock  because of the beautiful sheen it has.

The light purple layer is Amethyst Mica Metallic.  I could not get away from the mica metallic so the corners are Violet Mica Metallic.  Sorry my lighting is a little off.  The corners are the same color.

See you next time.  I think it time for a technique.

Safari Birthday

My grandson wants a safari birthday party.  The stamp set is from Stampin' Up and is called Playful Pals.  The die set is called Pyramid Pals.  I needed the jungle looking leaves and cricut came to the rescue.

The base for this card is Copper Mica Metallic.  The black layer is Onyx  Mica Metallic.  I wanted the elephant to be a light gray color and the silver Mica Metallic did the job.  All the mica metallic line have a beautiful sheen to them,  The sentiment is stamped on Opal Mica Metallic.

I needed a nice olive green for the jungle leaves.  Olive Basis did the trick

Welcome to the Tribe

Happy New Year everyone.  Here is my first card for the new year.  My daughter's brother-in-law and his wife are having a baby.  The theme for the shower is Our Tribe.

 I found this image on Apex for free.  It seemed just perfect.

They don't know if they are having a boy or a girl, so I went with brown and teal.  The base for this card is Hot Fudge Pop Tones.  The second layer is shimmery and is Aquamarine Mica/Metallic.
Finally the wording was cut on the cricut from Teal Basis.  The tent is also Hot Fudge Pop Tones.

Blessed Christmas Wishes

Happy holiday season everyone.  I love this time of year.  It just seems like time flies and I don't get all my projects done.

This is a card I saw online and loved the shape and pieces.  First I want to tell you the score and cuts for this card.  With the 8 1/2 inch side score at 4 1//4 and then move and cut at 6 1/4.  On the 11 inch side cut at 5 1/2.  This should give you 2 card bases.  The inside is 4 x 5 1/2.  The front layers are 3 x3 and 3 1/4 x 3 1/4.  The side layer is 1 3/4 x 5 1/4.  This is all in inches.

I made the base out of Blumarino Incandescent.  It has a gold shimmer to it.  The inside and small front piece is Gold Pearl Linen.  Finally the red down the side is Wild Cherry Pop Tones. Manger was all cut from Cryogen White and then colored with ink.

The small manger die and stamp set is from Papertrey Ink

Georgia is Two

This is card for a friend's little one that is turning two.  They are having a donut party.
All the cardstock for this card is from Paper Temptress and the links are provided.  The base for this card is Red Pepper Classic Linen.  I wanted another color pop so I used Yellow Thin Columns for the second layer.  I used ink around the edges to accent the pattern on the paper.  Razzle Berry Pop Tones seemed to be perfect for some of the wording.  I wanted to showcase here how well the Pop Tones line cuts in the cricut.  The first part of Two is  Orange Fizz Pop Tones.  Finally the donut is Hot Fudge Pop Tones with the icing being Banana Split Pop Tones.

Glitter was used as much as possible to finish off the accents.
