Ornament -Cricut "Christmas Noel" Cartridge

I played with the Cricut "Christmas Noel" cartridge the other day and made a few ornaments (keypad item -row 3 down, and #3 across). I cut them on Design Studio at 4" long and 2-1/4" wide using the main image, layer and shadow functions in different metallic and Bazzill papers. Then I spread Stickles all around the edge.  I also used the multi-cut function set at #2 to cut the images as they are so detailed (the first one I couldn't lift from the mat).

Here is a card I finished tonight using one of the ornaments.

-The white background layer is embossed with the Cuttlebug Damask Folder
-The printed border layer was cut with the SU Sizzix Topnote die
-Silver edging is Flower Soft Peel-off Stickers #457 Silver
-SU Ribbon

Butterfly Thank you

My husband asked me to make a Thank you card for a lady who helped him with the Open House of the local curling club (he is President this year). So, I also incorporated a few challenges in this card.

-On the swirl paper I used blue chalk ink and sponged over the pattern. Also Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distress ink on the edges.  On the brown paper, I used a script stamp, Martha Stewart clear butterfly, and also TH Tea Dye Distress ink on the edges.
-Cream organza ribbon overlaid with brown stitched ribbon binds the two patterned papers. 

- The oval was cut with Nesties and sponged around the edge with TH Tea Dye, popped up with foam tape. The thank you verse and oval is by Inkadinkadoo "Expressions & Frames" clear set. I then added Copper Stickles, and brown & cream pearls to highlite.
-Copper Stickles and pearls also highlite the butterflies

-EK Success embossed border punch on the bottom echoes the stamped pattern on the oval.

Another HM "Carrot Mouse" card

Double click to enlarge pic

A few weeks ago, I coloured six of these House Mouse images to have on hand. I put together this one on Monday but didn't upload right away as I wanted it to be a surprise to the person who received it. That's the bad thing about blogs - it's like a sneak peek for friends to see what you've been up to. LOL!

I haven't been feeling well lately and my cardmaking certainly shows it. You wouldn't believe how many have ended up in the "round filing bin" the last two weeks.....layers not straight, ink smudged, things just not working out!!! Probably you've noticed the layers aren't straight on this one either, but I didn't want to re-do for a third time. C'est la vie!

-Paper is from the Basic Grey "Eerie" 6x6 pad.
-layers and tag are Spellbinders
-The trick or treat stamp is by Studio G mini pack
-Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder
-Tim Holtz distressing ink- Marmalade & Black Soot
-EK Success curved embossing punch

Woo Hoo! I've been Published in SNR!

Woo Hoo! I just found out by email this morning that my House Mouse Pumpkin card will be published in the October 31st edition of Scrapbook News and Review, an on-line scrapbooking magazine. However, SNR also has sections for stamping and cardmaking, sketches, altered art, galleries, and community Forum.

I get regular email newsletters from SNR Card Universe Blog and lately they have been doing the daily Fall Tags. A week and a half ago, when I was checking out the first tag, I noticed a call for submissions for October. I have never done this before, so on a whim I decided to send them my pumpkin card. I figured I would never hear anything back because they would get so many entries......Boy, was I surprised when I got the email this morning!!!!

Now, I'm off to go and try to find all the places where my card might be seen and remove it as required by being published..........
