The Good Life

Welcome to another Cardz TV  challenge everyone!  This week's challenge is to use either a shamrock or a clover on your card.  I realize mine's a little small but it's there.  LOL
 
For my card I chose to use the Leprechaun in beer file by Sarah Bailey from the Silhouette store.  This one is Design ID #56339.  Now because this is a St. Patrick's Day cut I decided to do like the do in Savannah, Georgia and I'm sure many other places in the country and make my beer green.  I thought this added a bit more of a festive touch to the card.
 
The stamp that I used on my card is from the Cardz TV Stamps set titled Summer Fun.
 
The card blank that I used is from DCWV and came pre-embossed.  Pretty great huh?
 
And now that you've seen my take on this week's challenge be sure to check out the other wonderful designs that my DT sisters created for you this week.  They all really knocked this challenge out of the park.  Then after you've been filled with inspiration be sure to create your own card, link up and play along with us.
 
I can't wait to see what you create.

One Prick

I realize I'm like a week late on this one, but in honor of the release of Game of Thrones season 4 I decided to create a little card featuring Joffrey.  And why not?  His little figurine was included with the set as a commemorative piece from the Purple Wedding.
 
So to create my card I used this awesome file that was part of an SVG Cutting Files blog hop last year.  (Sorry folks that mean's it's not for sale and no I cannot share.)   Didn't she do an amazing job in capturing his likeness and attitude for this cut?
 
The shield that I used as my backdrop is from the Royalty cartridge by Cricut.
 
The stamped sentiment I used for this card is from the V is for Villains stamp set by Jaded Blossom.

Rush Delivery


Happy Wednesday everyone.  I have a funny little birthday card that I'd like to share with you today.  I created a different version with this same theme a couple years back but I think this version is so much cuter.

For my card today I used:

  • Marjorie Ann Designs' When I Grow Up - Aviator - for the helicopter on the outside and the clipart on the inside of my card
  • Hello Kitty for the presents - both of which I did using the print 'n cut feature.  I tried to cut and layer first but because of the size my machine didn't like my paper and tore it to shreds.
  • For my font, Cricut Design Space labeled it as "3 Birds Life's a Party"
And here is what the inside of my card looks like

Easter Charger



Hello everyone.  Today I have an Easter project that I'd like to share with you.  While looking through some of my stash I came across a charger plate that wasn't red and thought it might actually work for an Easter project so I went finding and putting together the perfect cuts.
 
For this project I used the Your Eggstra Sweet file from Marjorie Ann Designs for my bunny rabbit and her candy and I used the Easter Wreath from Treasure Box Designs for the eggs, leaves and 'flowers' encircling my charger.
 
When putting the bunny together I decided to pop dot her cheeks and then when I realized I needed some whiskers I went back to the Morning Coffee file from Marjorie Ann Designs and cut a set from there. 
 
Given the size of all my cuts this was an extremely easy project to put together and I love the way it turned out.  So much so that I just might have to keep this one all to myself instead of gifting it.
 
Here's a close up of that cute little bunny.....
 
 
And now I'm off to enter this into the following challenge:
 
Doubleclick Skittles - Animal Challenge - Ends March 3rd

Poisonous Fruit

 
Happy Monday everyone!  I am excited to tell you that today I am a guest designer over at Red Carpet Studio.  And boy have they got a fun challenge lined up for you.  In honor of the 87th Academy Awards the challenge is to Use circles for champagne bubbles and gold for the Oscar. You get to choose your accessory... a bow for a bow tie or bling for jewels or both.
 
For my take on this challenge I chose to make a card featuring a very well know villain  - the Evil Queen from Snow White.  Did you know that at the 11th Academy Awards, Disney was awarded an honorary Oscar, and that Snow White was nominated for Best Musical Score?  So what could be more fitting for this challenge?
 
The Evil Queen is one of several villains you'll find in the Villains file from Too Cute by Jessica.  As you can see I used gold on my background, circles for my sentiments and a small jewel on the evil queen's necklace.
 
My sentiments are from the Jaded Blossom stamp set Villain Candies.  I also used a sentiment from the V is for Villains stamp set on the inside of the card.
 
 
 
And now that you've seen my take on the be sure to  pop on over to Red Carpet Studio and check all the exciting projects the design team created.  The challenge ends March 12th so you have plenty of time to put your thinking cap on for this one. 




Wicked Birthday

Happy Sunday everyone.  Today I have another installment in my villain series to share with you.  This time I decided to create a birthday card.  Now I'm not sure which villain this is *gasp* and if one of you recognizes the character I'd love for you to share.  I'm guessing though that she's from the Disney cartoon Hercules??  Am I at least in the ballpark?
 
Anyway I created this card using the Villains file from Too Cute by Jessica.  And right now she's running a 90% off sale - but I'm not sure for how long.  Either way it's worth checking out.
 
My stamped sentiment is from the V is for Villain stamp set from Jaded Blossom.

And now I'm off to enter this card into the following challenge:

Aviator Layout

Today I have a layout that I'd like to share with you.  It's a simple one but one that means a lot to me as it features a picture of my Grandad during his stint in WWII.  My Grandad was an awesome man and even after his retirement from the Army he found a way to keep serving and giving back.
 
For this layout I used the new When I Grow Up - Aviator file from Marjorie Ann Designs.  Initially I had intended to use the paratrooper on a card but after I cut her out and put her together I realized that she was larger than I thought.  So then I decided to make a layout with her.  Of course I realize I used a girl on the layout of my Grandad but that's okay because I think it looks perfect....

And now I'm off to enter this layout into the following challenges:
