November Blog Hop~Feeling Flirty! Jazz up that Gift Card!

If you came from ScrapNJeannie, you are in the right place. If you have jumped here and just discovered our blog hop, feel free to check the list at Damask Divas blog to find the complete list of blog hop participants.

Hey everyone!  This month we are doing a blog hop featuring the Flirty paper pack by Close to my Heart!  Super cute and so versatile~I hate that it is going to retire soon!  I used my favorite cricut cartridge, the Artiste on both projects.  Please feel free to leave a comment or ask any questions!  I made two super easy projects...First I made a gift box for a baby shower.  I used stamp set C1501 New Arrival, Prisma glitter, and attempted to color the cute little elephant to look like a soft velour stuffed animal using alcohol markers.  It is the perfect little box to jazz up a gift card, or small gift!

Next I made a Christmas Card using the Artiste cricut cartridge.  It is a card that pulls out.  I used the Flirty paper pack and the stamp set D1440 Everlasting Life~I love that stamp set!!!  I used alcohol markers to color the pearls Ruby red.  It looks fabulous, but smears easily until they dry.

Mojo Monday 261

It's Mojo Monday...well, Mojo Wednesday around my house!  I love a challenge, so I have really enjoyed participating most weeks.   This week is October Mojo Madness CONTEST, so I had to get some Verve on and play this week for sure!  I used a beautiful stamp by Verve called 1Corinthians 15:57 Plain Jane, and Close to my Heart stamp set Words of Comfort.  I made my first  S-card, cut out using the Cricut Artiste cartridge.  I used the Artiste to cut all the shapes and embossed the banner using the Cuttlebug embossing folder, Textile Texture.  I used Ruby, Cashmere, Colonial White, and Cocoa cardstock and Black Tulle ribbon. The new technique I tried was coloring pearls with a ruby CTMH alchohol marker...Love it!!!  Here is what I came up with...
