I had to get creative on this one. I used my Sure Cuts a Lot 2 program to create this “wedding dress.”  I began by “welding” a heart and a triangle together. I flipped the heart upside down. I then copied the “welded” image and “welded” again to make the full card. The card measure 5 1/2″ tall by 7″ wide.

For the “pearl” stand I used some pearls left over from my wedding! They are put together already in a strand so I just cut about 1″ and taped it in the back so the pearls don’t come lose.  For the dress I used “from my heart- metallic papers” I embossed using my Cuttlebug machine. I tied up the cute bow using organza ribbon.

For the skirt I used an old ribbon I had from one of my Downtown Los Angeles fabric district buys 🙂

I did a very simple card for this one. I did not even use my cricut! I used basic pink card stock for the card. I used lavender card stock for the overlay. I used my Swiss Dots on the Cuttlebug to give texture to the lavender back ground. I used my pink and chocolate ribbon I bought from Costco for the middle of the card.

I used my downtown finds “butterflies” for the embellishment as well as a heart shaped jewel. I used the stampology clear stamps to stamp the tag and the “Thanks” with blue ink and pink ink.

I hope you all like it!

I was up until 12:30 a.m. last night still making my cards for the challenge. I have to take the pictures of all of them and upload them. I am having problems with the image quality so I am going to have my husband help me with clearer images 🙂

Cards pictures still to come!

Today is National Scrapbook Day and I am tagging along to mypinkstamper.com challenges. I was up really early (for me) so I can watch and start watching the blog and the challenges. The first challenge was creating a Mother’s day card. Here is my version….

Well we know my mom had 4 kids so I decided to use the Create a Critter cartridge along with the Mother 2010 cartridge for this card. I also used my cuttlebug. The card is 5 1/2″ x 8″. The monkeys were cut at 2 1/4″, Mama was cut at 2″. I used the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV for the pink leaves back ground. I used basic pink, lime, hot pink, black, beige, brown and green card stock from Recollecitions (sold at Michaels).

A closer look at the “monkeys”

Decided to make this special card for a very special person. She is expecting and I thought this would be a nice card.

I used the “New Arrival” Cricut Cartridge to create the card. I also used the cuttlebug “swirls” to give texture to the background.

I used the Animal Crackers Stack for the glittery green “ribbon”.

I also used the Storybook cartridge to cut the stork’s back drop. I used the scallop on page 40 and cut it at 2 1/2″ The stork was cut at 2″. The rattles were cut at 1 1/4″ inches.
