Pear and Partridge cards

I had some very creative and talented friends come over today to make some cards.  I think they turned out very well.

Cupcake Card from Artiste

I needed a card for my niece that is turning 7 on Halloween.  I used the Cricut Artiste cartridge to cut out the cupcake card at 4 3/4 out of non CTMH cardstock.  Then I cut the same image out again from  some retired Dotty for You paper.  I trimmed off the flap and ran through a crimper to add texture.  I cut out the icing image at 4 3/4 also.  I ran it through my Cuttlebug, added some Glitz Gel and some bling.  The Birthday Girl is cut at 1 1/2.  Silver Shimmer Trim closes the gap.  Hope she likes her cupcake! 

Thanks to Fancy Melissa and Cricut with Heart  for inspiration. 

Thanks for looking.

Give a girl the right shoe . . .

Made these two shoe cards from a template I bought from Tanya Bell .  So cute I just had to try.  She also has a video on how to put the card together and some other ideas.  I printed out the quote "Give a girl the right shoe and she can conquer the world" by Bette Midler to put on the inside.  This will be a birthday card for a very fashionable friend of mine.  Now I just have to decide which one to send her.

Graduation Cards

My nephew and his fiancee are graduating from chiropractic school so I made these two clean and simple, one layer cards.  I used smokey plum and sunset ink and some retired smokey plum ribbon.

Shirt Card - Redo

I thought the shirt card I did was a little small and I didn't like the way it fit in the envelope.  So I mounted it on a 5 x 7 card base of desert sand and added a sentiment from Just a Number stamp set.

Monogram Stamps on Pemberly

Using up more of my paper.  Just a few scraps left of my Pemberly paper so I thought I would make some personalized monogrammed note cards.  The card bases and envelopes are not CTMH . .  shhhh.  But everything else is.  I cut the note card file box on the Cricut Artiste and used my 1 1/4 circle punch to punch out the monogram after stamping. 

Thanks for looking.

Halloween items from Artiste

I had some time to "play" with paper this week end and thought I would make some Halloween items.  All items are cut using the Artiste cartridge.  Thanks to Cricut with Heart blog for inspiration every day.

Shirt Cards

I needed a couple masculine cards so I thought I would use up some of my retired Elemental paper.  It makes perfect shirt material.  I cut the shirts from the new Artiste cartridge.  The pockets are pop dotted to give them a little dimension.
