Halloween card

Well it is a bit early for Halloween cards but I had bought the Happy Hauntings cart in the spring and figured since it is only 2 months away from Halloween why not bust that baby out and make a card.  So here is my Halloween card.  There are so many great cuts on the Happy Hauntings cart that this will surely not be my last card using this cart.  I cute the tomb stone at 3½ inches on page 60 of the Happy Hauntings hand book.  The word Frank N Stein was really tiny and a pain to put on but I managed.  I think if I ever do that cut again I will make it a inch bigger.  I got the web and little spider from the Paper Doll Dress Up cart on page 49.  I put a little glitter on the web.....hey gotta have a little glitter right?  I had some Halloween chipboard and one of them said Halloween so I used that.  Tied a bit of green twine at the top.   I guess it is never to early to start making cards for holidays.

Another card using Cindy Loo

This is just a simple card.  I like making a few cards that can be used for anything.  It is always nice when something comes up and you don't have time to make a card.  So here is my simple card.  I used a 5X7 card base.  The design is from the Cindy Loo cricut cart on page 32.  It was cut at 4 inches.  I just used a corner punch for the background paper, and put a few white dots on the design to help it pop a little.  Added a little embossing to the design.  A easy and fun card to make.

B-day card

I made this birthday card for my sister.  It is a 5x7 size card.  I was in the mood to make some larger die cuts.  I used the Cindy Loo cart.  I used the paisley from page 33 and cut it at 4 inch.  Added a chipboard with the saying Happy Birthday and a tiny bling flower.  The strip of pink going across the card used the paisley cuttlebug folder.  (yeah finally used that folder) I wanted to do something different then a cupcake or cake...nothing wrong with them I just was in the mood to do something different.  Hope she likes it.

Card for Busy Sister!

My sister has been busy working overtime and getting ready for her first grandbaby.  I thought I would just send her a card to say hi and let her know she is in my thoughts.  I used Create a Critter cricut cart pg. 68 for the word Busy.  Then I used "Just Because" Cards cricut cart for the bee and the word bee pg. 56.  Added some bling and sent it on its way.  I like making cards for my family & friends.  They don't have to be perfect for me.  It is just a nice way to let them know they are in my thoughts and it gives me a chance to relax and enjoy crafting.  Have a great day!

Watering can card

I used the watering can on page 66 of Kate's ABCs cricut cart to make this card.  I cut it at 4inch using my gypsy.  I ran the watering can and the orange flower through the cuttlebug using the swiss dots embossing folder.  On the back ground paper I used a sizzix embossing folder but I don't know the name of it *sorry*.  I threw the package out for it.  I wanted the card to have lots of texture.  The green felt butterflies I got from M's dollar bin awhile back.  Hope you like it.
