A Little Birdie Told Me....Circle Cricut Card

This is the final card from my Cricut Class last week.  This card was cut using the Card/Shift buttons and I cut it 4 1/2".  The cricut cuts the small flowers out of the card base, so I added Lucy B&T paper behind them to peek through. 

I cut the large flower <flower8> on page 50 and stamped it with the Lucy WOTG stamp set.  I used Sparkles to embellish the flowers.  I cut the leaves from the <petal2> key and crimped them with the Fiskar Crimping Tool.  I used the "Life is Tweet" stamp of the month for the sentiment and the vines.

This is the inside of the card and I used the sentiment, flowers, and bird from "Life is Tweet."  Today is the last day to order your "Life is Tweet" June Stamp of the Month.  Also, Buy 2 stamp sets, Get 1 FREE ends today too!

Lucy Tag Card - Cricut Class

This card was one that I made for the Cricut Class last week.  The card shape is on page 50 (our focus page) and is on the Card button - I cut it 5 1/2" - The Cricut AP measures the height of whatever you are cutting.  The scalloped piece is on the Decorative Layer on page 50 as well (cut 5 1/2"). 

I also cut the flowers with <flower8> and used the Lucy Workshop on the Go stamp set to stamp the flowers.  I cut the leaves using <petal2> and then crimped them with the Fiskars crimping tool.  I used Foam Tape to pop the flowers up and added Pearl Opaques to dress it up.  I added pink Seam Binding to top of the tag card to finish.

How Tweet Of You Cricut Project

We made this cute little purse at my cricut class last week.  Our focus page from our Cricut AP Cartridge was page 50 - the tag is on that page and we cut it at 2". 

The purse is on page 23 and on the Font Layer/Shift Keys (5").  We cut the front handle off and added <shape2> for the purse tab/buckle (tab was cut at 1 1/4" and I used a small piece of velcro as the closure). 

We used the "Life is Tweet" Stamp of the Month for the stamping.  A large sparkle and Paradise Baker's Twine were used to embellish this cute purse.

These would be perfect as a favor for a Tea Party, Birthday Party, Wedding, etc.  You could put candy, earrings, or anything small in this little purse!

Congratulations on Your New Arrival Card

The focal point on this card was inspired by my friend, Christine Adams.  I just love this little elephant and I scraplifted the way she made his ear on her card!  The stamp is from the New Arrival set and is Cricut AP compatible, so I cut out the Colonial White piece and the Blush Cardstock piece on the cricut.  The paper is from the Lucy paper packet - so cute for a baby girl!

I stamped the elephant on the Colonial White Cardstock; again on Grey Wool Cardstock; and a third time on Blush Cardstock.  I cut the Grey Wool Elephant out and popped it up with foam tape and repeated that step for the pink ear.  I used our bonding memories glue pen on the ear and let it dry a bit; then added prisma glitter. 

The flower is from our new "Bitty Buds" assortment and I colored the leaves with pear marker.  I used Grey Wool Baker's Twine and a Licorice Opaque to finish it off.  I don't know about you, but I need to make baby cards!  If you have made any lately, please email me a picture!  You may win A PRIZE!

Could I Be Any Cuter? Baby Card

I love our new stamp set called New Arrival.  It is really fun to use with all of the cute animals and it also is Cricut compatible.  I cut the focal point; focal point mat; hearts and roses with the Cricut AP Cartridge. 

I stamped the crocodile and colored him with our markers.  I cut the crocodile out and popped it up with foam tape.  I used Pearl Opaques in the center of the roses and I used
lace trim from my stash.

Happy Birthday Clear Card

This is one of our clear cards and I used Lucy paper and the Lucy Workshops on the Go stamp set for all of the stamping.  I cut the flower with the Cricut AP Cartridge and then used the coordinating stamp.  I cut the leaves out on the cricut and crimped them with my Fiskars crimping tool.  I made a  fold in each leaf and distressed them with grey wool ink.

I used sparkles and Neutral Baker's Twine in grey wool to embellish this card.

Life is Tweet Card

Here is another June Stamp of the Month card.  I cut the Colonial White flower out with the Cricut AP Cartridge and stamped it with the coordinating stamp.  I also cut the stem/leaf and the little bird piece with the Cricut as well. 

The large pink flower is from our Pink Ribbon Collection and I trimmed one flower off and adhered it with glue dots.  I added Pearl Opaques to the center of the flower and also to the bird's eye. 

After the card was assembled, I used our Bonding Memories Glue pen and traced the design on the large flower; I let it dry a bit; and then I added Prisma Glitter.

"A Little Birdie Told Me....It's your Birthday" Card

This is the card we made at $10 Month Playgroups this week.  We used the June Stamp of the Month, "Life is Tweet" along with the Lucy paper packet, coordinating stamp pads, and markers.  I cut the Colonial White and Cotton Candy paper using the Cricut Art Philosophy cartridge - I LOVE that cartridge!

 We stamped the bird with StazOn ink on the Colonial White piece; stamped it again on the yellow floral paper; and cut it out.  The yellow bird piece is popped with Foam Tape for added dimension.  We used a Black Opaque Pearl for his eye and embellished the party hat with Silver Glitz Glitter Glue.  We also added seam binding to the card to finish it off.

Life is Tweet is available through June 30.  You may purchase it for $17.95 or $5 with a $50 subtotal purchase.  This stamp set is Cricut AP Compatible as you can see.
