Cooking with Cricut Challenge - The Real Meaning of Christmas

I am so happy with how this card turned out! I used Lacy Labels and cut the "All Boy" Frame at 2.25" The blue paper is Core'dinations and embossed with the Cuttlebug snowflake pattern and sanded lightly. The Holy Family Stamp is SU and the ribbon is actually ripped off an Ann Taylor Loft shopping bag. That's called upcycling, right? Not just being cheap? lol.

Cooking with Cricut Challenge - Stockings!

Sorry this is getting posted late- we've had quite the week here. While this stocking says it is a Cricut one in the DT post, it is actually something I whipped up in inkscape. I was planning on using my Cricut, but I only have a stocking cut on my Gypsy and my Gypsy cord mysteriously disappeared... I hope to have it replaced by next week! This is a 3.5" square gift tag, all the paper is K & Co and stickles were added to the stocking and one of the gingerbread men. I hope you can join us in this week's challenge at CWC! And Melin is giving away a free stocking cut file for those of you who don't have one- so no excuses! :)

Fifth Avenue Cards

I'm making card sets for some people for Christmas, so I have some random cards for you today. Last night, I got to try out my new SU set, Fifth Avenue. These first two were inspired by things I saw in the splitcoaststampers fifth avenue gallery...

This first one is just the rose stamp and a Fiskars "thinking of you" stamp in an A2 size.

This one uses the poppy stamp and they are cut out and put on dimensionals with pearl sitckers put on the middle. The paper is Core'dinations and the ribbon is JoAnn's. The "Thanks" stamp is also SU, but I can't remember the set name at the moment.

This last one was done with my Cricut- inspiration for this came from an Everyday Cricut post a few months back, but I changed the tags they were making into A2 sized cards. The doily cut is from Storybook and done with Core'dinations paper. The bow is hemp.
