Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Snowflake Greetings" Holiday Card

This week at Stuck on U Sketches, our theme is lots of snowflakes! This is a standard size 4.25"x5.5" card; I used my Crop-o-Dile Corner Chomper to round the top corners. The white cardstock was embossed with the Cuttlebug Snowflakes Embossing Folder for added texture.


The snowflake was cut from the Cricut Winter Lace cartridge at 3.25" and embellished with pearls. 


The sentiment frame was cut to fit the stamp.

"Holiday Wreath" Card

This is a pretty simple card but it turned out to be on of my favorites that I created this holiday season. I started with a standard 4.25"x5.5" card, layered it with designer paper and used my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch to create an accent piece. 


The wreath is cut from the Cricut Christmas cartridge at 3" and each of the layers were popped up on foam for added dimension. The bow is accented with a small, red gemstone. 


The sentiment frame was cut to fit my stamp and I used my Crop-o-Dile Corner Chomper to round the edges.

Momenta Design Team Project - "Like Mittens in Winter" Card

Hi, everyone! I'm here with my final project for the Momenta Design Team. I've had such a wonderful time creating with this design team and I'm so grateful that I was able to work with such an amazing company!

For my project, I created a cute winter card that can be used for any occasion. Once again, I used the Momenta 12x12 All Through the Year Super Paper Pad; this is one of my favorite paper stacks...the papers are so pretty and so versatile. 

This is a standard 4.25"x5.5" card. The mittens are cut from the Cricut Jolly Holidays cartridge at 2.75" and I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch to create an accent border. The sentiment frame was created by cutting two strips of rectangular cardstock and using the Fiskars Elegance 4-in1 Embossing corner punch on all four corners.  


All of my cuts were inked and popped up on foam for added dimension and the inside of the card is finished off with white cardstock and a strip of coordinating designer paper.

"Reindeer Family" Card

As soon as I saw the reindeer on the Cricut Christmas cartridge, I knew that I wanted to create a elegant holiday card. I began with a 4"x9.25" card and layered it with a 3.75"x9" piece of gold, metallic cardstock and a 3.5"x8.75" piece of white, snowflake designer paper. I used the Fiskars 4-in-1 Elegance Embossing Corner Punch to punch the top corners. I used the Martha Stewart Cherish Border Punch to create an accent piece and adhered it to the card as well.


Each reindeer was cut at 3.75" and embossed with the Cuttlebug Polka Dots embossing folder. The sentiment frame was cut from the Elegant Edges cartridge at 2.5". All the cuts were inked, popped up on foam and accented with twine and pearls. 




The inside of the card was finished with gold, metallic paper and white cardstock.

"Enjoy the Holiday" Card

This is a simple but festive holiday card that I created. I began with a 4.25"x5.5" portrait style card and layered it with a 4"x5.25" piece of gold metallic cardstock.  I added a 3.5"x5" piece of striped designer paper and a border strip cut from the Cricut Accent Essentials cartridge. Finally, I added a 2"x4.5" piece of gold metallic cardstock that I embossed with my Cuttlebug Argyle embossing folder.


The tree and all of it's layers were cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge at 3.5".


I stamped my sentiment onto a piece of white cardstock, adhered it to some designer paper and hand cut it into a banner shape. All of my cuts have been inked and popped up on foam for added dimension.

Fantabulous Cricut Design Team Post - "Virgin Mary" Home Decor Tag

Today at Fantabulous Cricut, our theme is Trimming with a Tag and the challenge is to use a tag somewhere on your project. This week, our challenge is sponsored by Core'dinations ColorCore Cardstock. My entire project was created with the Core'dinations Vintage Collection.


For my project, I created a large, decorative tag to use as a home decor piece. I began by cutting a large tag shape from the Cricut Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 10.5"; first, I cut the tag out of light-weight chipboard and then I cut the same shape out of paper and adhered them together. The Virgin Mary was cut from the Inspired Heart cartridge at 8.5" and the smaller, sentiment tag is cut from the Once Upon a Princess cartridge at 2". All of my cuts were popped up foam in order to create dimension and then I heavily embellished the piece with pearls, ribbons and flowers. 


I used the roughest edge of a nail file to distress the edges of my cuts and then lightly rubbed the file over the surface of my cuts to give them a rough, worn look. 




I added a small border piece near the bottom of my tag; I used the Martha Stewart Doily Lace border punch on the bottom edge of the accent piece and then embossed it with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder. I used my nail file to distress the embossed texture, added some lace to the bottom of the accent piece and adhered the entire piece to my tag.

All of my papers came from the Momenta 12x12 All Through the Year Super Paper Pad; I love using bright, fun colors in my winter projects and these colors and patterns were perfect. 


I used a my Fiskars Apron Lace border punch to create an accent piece and cut a background doily from the Cricut Lacy Labels cartridge at 10.5".


The snowman was cut from the Winter Frolic cartridge at 6" and the snowflakes were cut from the Winter Lace cartridge at 3", 3.25" and 4".

Stuck on U Sketches Design Team Post - "Bite Me" Card

This week's at Stuck on U Sketches our theme is Holiday Baking. I have more than a few grinches on my card list this year so I thought it would be fun to create a few snarky holiday cards.  

This is a standard 4"x9.25" card. I kept the design fairly simple because I wanted to showcase my papers without overwhelming the simple gingerbread man cut. I used my Fiskars Threading Water border punch for added interest. 


The little gingerbread man is cut from the Jolly Holidays cartridge at 3.75" and trimmed with white glitter paper and red rhinestones. Originally, I used my gypsy to hide the gingerbread man's face and used a stamp to give him a sad face but then I worried that he looked a little too sad. I hand altered the cut in order to make him look bitten. The font is cut from the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge at .75". 


The inside of the card is finished off with coordinating cardstock and designer paper.

Patches of Pink Design Team Project - Holiday Card Holder

Today, at Patches of Pink our theme is Christmas! For my project, I created a holiday card holder to display all of my holiday cards. I began with a 8"x13" piece of chipboard and created a fun Christmas scene. I punched two holes in the chipboard and added some twine in order to hang the card holder and hot glued three ribbons to the bottom in order to attach the cards. The cards are attached to the ribbon with clothespins. 


All of the cuts on this card holder were cut from the Cricut Jolly Holidays cartridge. Santa's sleigh was cut at 4", the reindeer at 3.75", the house at 6.25", the phase at 2.5" and the trees at 5", 4" 2.5" and 2.25" respectively. 


I popped most of my cuts up on foam and added several thicknesses of foam on some cuts to create a three dimensional effect.
