Get Whale Soon Card

I just receive my first My Pink Stamper stamp set (Punny-licious) and have been dying to use it. Luckily there were two challenges this week that were perfect for it. I created this card for the Tacky Tuesday challenge and Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge.

Tacky Tuesday required you to use the whale from Create-a-Critter and to have a whale related sentiment. C x 4 required you to use the Create-a-Critter Cartridge.

Recipe - Card size 4 1/4 x 5 1/2

Whale cut at 3 1/2 - Create a Critter
Plaid paper and Green strip - DCWV Stack 7 -- I think :( I am seriously disorganized!
Sentiment - My Pink Stamper!

Mini Monsters B-day Card

Created this card for the Cricut Cartridge Chaos Challenge #2 (what a mouthful!). The challenge was to create something using the selected cartridge, which we (the "viewers") get to vote on. The selected cart was Mini Monsters, which I am just loving. I think all these little monsters are just so cute. Inside Happy Birthday is from Create-a-Critter, front sentiment is computer generated...I think it should be changed from "in" to "up". But once I stick something down, I usually never go back.

Flaunt It Fridays

I made this card as a Flaunt It Fridays challenge. The challenge was to use the skull found in Mini Monsters in a non Halloween card/project.
The outside of the card is just the simple "Beware" Skull, black card stock with white card stock, I added googly eyes for a little dimension.
The inside tells you what you need to beware of! :) I used the witches cauldron and the lamppost sign, both from Mini Monsters, to create a little Love Potion 4 Sale setup. I think it's cute, kinda subtle.

KinderStampO Tag Swap

Around Christmas, I stumbled upon the Christmas Cheer Blog Hop being sponsored by Gloria's Goofy Craft Spot and through the hop I found KinderStampO. I was excited to find that they were holding a January Tag Swap with Birthdays as the theme. I made 16 tags and will be sending them to Texas (that's were Jessica from KinderStampO is located). I'm so excited to see what I get back and hope that it doesn't take too long for the return package. I'm also a little nervous, I hope that my tags aren't too "amateurish".

Tag cut from Preserves - black card stock
Hat cut from Straight from the Nest - MME "party time"
Cupcake cut from Celebrations - MME "party time"
Green background is from DCWV "Citrus" card stock
Not sure about the measurements, I always forget to write that down and then drive myself batty when I'm trying to recreate my project.

Thanks for looking, PLEASE feel free to leave a comment, I love them! :)

Birthday Card

Today my daughter, Jessica, asked me to make a card for her friend's mother and I didn't want to make the card too cutesy. So I went to My Pink Stamper (my first choice for inspiration) to see some ideas for how to use the Forever Young cartridge and found episode 205. To say that I like this card is an understatement...I love the way this card turned out. I really am quite tickled with it. I've been working on quite a few things lately. I've joined a tag swap at The theme was birthdays, so I've created some tags with hats and cupcakes. I also made a "Baby" card using the Songbird cartridge. Thanks for reading :)
