Lawn Fawn~Baaah Humbug~Love, Peace & Joy

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to share a card a made using a few stamp sets from the new Lawn Fawn release!  I used the super cute Baaah Humbug set which I stamped on the Let's Bokeh paper.  Then I stamped Snowy Backdrops with silver Delicata pigment ink for the background on Eggplant CS from CTMH.  I also used the Lawn Fawn Love die, and cut it out of Slate CS from CTMH.  For the star of Bethlehem, I stamped the star from Blessed Christmas (Paper Smooches).  Then I scanned it and cut it out on my ScanNcut. This was a super easy card to put together, and so fun!  I made a card tutorial of this card for my YouTube channel, the link will be posted below.  I hope you like it!

Mama Elephant~Sledding Fun with Tandem Ride

Hey everyone!  I just wanted to share my last two cards I made using my Mama Elephant stamps.  Oh, how I LOVE Mama Elephant stamps...As soon as I saw both of these stamp sets, I knew exactly what I would do with them!  Use the bike with the Tandem Ride set?  No thanks...But, the way these cute little animals sit sideways, they are perfect for going sledding!  So, I used a Wplus9 stamp set to make a sled and it was perfect!  I also made a card with Woodland Gifts, having the friends help each other hang a star on their tree.  Here's what I came up with:

Foxes make me Happy

Hey everyone!  Just wanted to share a shaker card I made using the foxes and stamp sets from the new Cricut cart from CTMH~Artistry Collection.  I used the CTMH Flip Flaps, to make the easiest shaker card ever!  I made this card for all the CTMH club gals, so I hope you like it!  Since I'm in the process of moving from Missouri to California right now...I can't promise I will have time to make a tutorial of this card.  But, I will link a YouTube video which I show this card up close, and show I how use Flip Flaps and Pocket Pages to make a shaker card.  ;)

Easiest Shaker Card~EVER!

Hey everyone!  I've been holding on to a secret, and waiting until I had time to share a video.  Sometimes it is really much easier to share an idea on YouTube, then for me to explain in writing it out.  I found the easiest way to make shaker cards~using CTMH Flip Flaps!  You can also use the Photo Pockets from Simple Stories (I purchased mine from Micheal's with a coupon).  The Flip Flaps from CTMH are $3.95 and already have the fold creased, the Pockets from Michaels don't have the fold.  But, both work...I think it is the easiest way to make a shaker card, with no Fuse Tool required.  ;)  I made a YouTube video to share how I make them, I will post below!

Polaroid Money Card~YouTube video

Hey everyone!  Just popping in here while I have a share a new project I came up with using the new CTMH Artistry cartridge.  It's a money card, and I think it turned out super cute!  For the last few years and have gotten lazy with birthday presents for my 9 year old's friends.  I give them cash, jazzed up in one way or another.  Not ONE child has minded, usually when they open it...the pretend to faint, lol!  Here is my latest creation:  (Design Space File & YouTube video below!)

I used Design Space to size the Polaroid to fit the Flip Flaps .  I cut the base with Glacier, and two inside sections (one Thistle, and one silver).  Then I attached the Flip Flap to the back, so it would roll up inside.  I used a scrap piece of paper to attach the the polaroid to my card base.  The card case is 4 3/4" x 8 1/2.  I used the Holiday Tag for the Happy Birthday sentiment.

Sorry~I can't give dimensions for this if you aren't using the Explore...But, you can estimate the dimensions off my DS file, and use it in Cricut Craft room.  You will have to add the slit on the Polaroid base.  Test it out on scrap paper first to make sure everything fits!  :)  I also added scraps at the bottom of the Flip Flap to prevent the flap from going to far inside the slit.  Click below for my Design Space File and YouTube video!

September Stamp of the Month

Hey everyone!  I have had a few hours today to make a few quick cards to share.  First, I had to play with the stamp set that will only be available this month, the CTMH Stamp of the Month (SOTM).   I love the big bold flowers, and decided to try to double stamp them.  I made a set of four...two I stamped gold first, then black; then the other two I stamped the black first and gold next.   I still just love that Delicata Gold pigment ink!  I used the sentiment from the stamp set Always Grateful.  I used the new cardstock colors from the Enchantment Paper.  This stamp set was so fun, I can't wait to play with it again!
