Merry Monday

This week the sketch by Lori at is to create a card with a Nativity scene. I don't know how many card crafters out there save their old Christmas cards, but I have some that date back more years than I care to count. I love to repurpose some of them when making Christmas cards. Since I don't have any Nativity stamps, I found this challenge the perfect time to go digging through my old Christmas card stash and find one.
Here is my card:
Nativity Scene - Old Christmas card
Sentiment - I printed on my computer using the "Old English" font
Tag - Is a Spellbinder, I used ribbon to thread through it
Doves - Metal Brads by Recollection
Cardstock - Scraps from my Scrap Box.

B'Day card for Dad

 Father's Day is almost here, but I decided to make a birthday card first. The base cardstock is from the DCWV "Industrial Chic" stack, these sheets are really think and make perfect base cards. The white panel is embossed with a CB "Wood Grain" folder, on the circle I used A Cuttlebug " Houndstooth" folder.  which I inked with the color "Terra". The sentiment and circles are printed and cut on the Explore. I added a cord embellishment and metal Brads.

Mojo Monday

Love the simple sketch Julee at provided for us this week. I always have a short supply of Children's birthday cards and I thought I would make a card for a little guy.
I used scraps to make most of the card, except the base card paper is from Recollections "All Seasons" stack and the cute little guy in his "wheels" is from DearieDolls  stamps. The sentiment is computer-printed using a Mickey Mouse font. Instead of the circle on the sketch I used a  sparkly Birthday Party Hat.

Merry Monday Challenge

Over at Linda inspired us to make a Snow Globe card. Loved the chance to try another Shaker card, since I don't make them very often and they are always a challenge for me. I find that with each Shaker card I make I find new ways to go about it and I am getting quicker at making them.
*Snow Globe - Is a Cricut image cut on Explore
*Globe Scene - Is cut from an old Christmas card.
*I used a Shaker 3" circle mold and filled it with assorted items such as tiny beads, tiny gold stars, fluffy snow and clear sequins.
*Foil Cardstock -  From a very old all foil stack I have from American Crafts called "AC Specialty Paper". A very nice assortment of all colors of 12X12 sheets in it. I'm pretty sure when it runs out I will never find another again, I bought it on clearance, too. 
*Sentiment - Old rubber stamp inked using Stazon Black ink. The tag is a Spellbinder with ribbon through it.
 *Christmas Tree Branches - Cut using a Martha Stewart punch, and added a pearl to them.
Sorry about the photo, very hard to take a good one with all the reflective materials.

The Paper Players

Posting this card at Leanne has provided a clean and simple challenge---to limit the layers and embellishments of our creation---with a WILD THING theme!
I cut out the Lion from the Cricut "Animal Kingdom cartridge and wrote the sentiment and "Roar" on my Explore.

Tuesday Morning Sketches

Had fun making Melissa's sketch at this week . I found this little feller on line (isn't he so cute?). I downloaded the paw print paper and embossed with CB "Wire" folder. I used glitter pens on his ear, collar and dog dish and a black metallic pen on his "spots", though they appear more gray than black. I added small red gems to the doggie panel. I cut the matted banner on my Explore. The sentiment I printed on Word using the "Baby Muffins" font, The tag is a Spellbinder and I ran satin ribbon through it.
