I made this Christmas decoration using the cricut. The backgound squares and the lettering were all cut using the storybook cartridge. I embossed the letters and the bell at the bottom with swiss dots and holly leaves on the red squares.
Simon Says Stamp and Show's current challenge is to show something made with a Tim Holtz technique. Its a bit difficult to choose, because they are all a lot of fun to do. I decided to choose water stamping as I was amazed by the effect you can get with it!!
Hi everyone, hope you are nearly ready for Christmas!!
I made this card using my favourite Dutch Houses stamps and a home made one (its supposed to look like a cobbled road). I then embossed with seafoam white and voila!! the background was embossed with swiss dots folder. A very quick and easy card :)
I made this tag for the Studio L3 challenge CCC #24 - Rock Candy Distress Stickles technique. Look in Tim's book for exact instructions. First I embossed with the music folder in the cuttlebug and then heat embossed with vanilla powder (oh!!! it smelled so good :D) then I covered it up with green distress ink (which I didn't let dry :( and promptly wiped it off when I applied the stickles stuff. But the green did stay around the embossing and I quite like this effect. (mistakes are good!!!) The flower is cut using a Marianne Design die and the robin and branch using a storybook cricut cartridge. I am also entering this in the delightful Challenges - embossing challenge
Hi everyone, I made this card using spellbinders labels dies for the card base and backing paper. The stamped image is by rubber stampede and the snowflakes were cut using Marianne Designs dies. I used corrugated card for the die cutting and it came out with an interesting texture - I'm very pleased with that! At the moment I have an obsession with the wavy sentiment labels - I saw a similar effect on some of the Scandinavian blogs.
I made this little birthday card for one of my nieces. (how do you spell niece or neice?? both look wrong!! - I'll check later). The Pink Stamper is having a birthday card challenge so I thought I would enter this card.
Hi everyone, last night I made a birthday card for my son's friend. I find it quite difficult to make cards for teenage boys. I don't always want a football or a computer game theme, so I tried something a bit different.
I made this card using a delightful vintage picture. The background paper is sewn onto the card and the hearts have snow on them with a bit of glitter for a bit of glam. I don't think you can have a Christmas card without glitter.
Hi there, hope you are having a nice Wednesday! This is a layout of one of our lovely guinea pigs (we are obsessed with them LOL). This gp is called Molly and the reason for this photo was to make a birthday card/book for my daughter's 16th birthday (made by the guinea pigs of course!). She posed perfectly what a star!!!
I cut the letters, apples and stars on my cricut (wow! what a wonderful machine)
