Wedding Card Overlay

Image
I needed a wedding card so began searching through pinterest because I felt my creativity has been a little strained lately.  I found one that inspired this card I created.

I used my Artfully Sent cricut cartridge to create this pretty overlay.   It is from a pocket card but I used the Slice feature in Design Space to cut it down to only the overlay portion.  (I really really love my Explore and using Design Space!).  I found some retired silver ribbon to put behind the overlay.  There are 3 layers of White Daisy Cardstock on this card!  I used the Thin foam tape around the frame of the overlay to pop it up a little bit.  For my sentiment, I cut out a fancy shape from the Artiste cricut cartridge making it large enough to fit my "happy wedding day" stamp.  This an M size stamp so it is just $2.95!  (Wedding Day - M1122) I heat embossed the sentiment in silver.
Simple yet elegant.
Just a reminder!!  BOTH the Artfully Sent and Artiste cricut cartridges are retiring this year! …

An Artfully Sent Happy Father's Day!

Image
Father's Day is coming up and I wanted to share the Father's Day card I created for my dad.  I wanted to use something from the Artfully Sent Cricut Cartridge to save some time. By the way.... did you know the Artfully Sent Cricut Collection (Z3168) is being retired?  If you don't have it, be sure to order it before it is gone for good!

This card was so easy!  I used the Desert Sand Fundamental Cardstock so when the card is folded, the center shows the pattern side.    To cut the card - set your size to 7".  There is no need to change the dial size when you cut the mustaches.  They are linked to the card so leave your dial size at 7" and they will be cut to fit your card.   To cut use these keys:  Scene<Env-4> and Shift Scene <Liner-4>.



I had a new stamp I wanted to use too so I created a space to use on the inside of the card.  This stamp is call Day For Dad (C1645).  Isn't it cute??  It coordinates with the Artistry Cricut Cartridge.  I used th…

You're One in a Melon

Image
Here is another fun card with the One in a Melon stamp set.  

I used Calypso paper for the background of the card. Using Cotton Candy and Pear inks, I stamped the watermelon across the bottom.  I stamped "You're one in a Melon" directly on the card with Cotton Candy ink and then again in Pear on a piece of scrap cardstock.  I cut out each letter (yes - each letter!) and added it to the top of the Cotton Candy letters using little tiny strips of foam tape.  That is what I love about foam tape!  You can cut it into what ever width you need!

Since this stamp set coordinates with the Artistry Cricut cartridge I was able to cut out the pineapple and then stamped it onto my shape.   The little arrow at the top is one of the Calypso compliments.  I added black sequins from the Calypso sequins pack to accent my card.

OK - I think I'll go eat some watermelon now!

The Proposal

Image
Here is another layout for the Study Abroad album I've been working on.  This layout is the last layout in the book.  During their last week in Cuba, John proposed to Kayli.  One of the other students knew it was going to happen so he was prepared with a camera.  I was so happy I could save that special day in a layout for them.


For this layout I used paper from Calypso along with Kraft cardstock for my base pages.  For my flowers, I used watercolor paints creating a wash of color.  Once it dried, I stamped several flowers from the Hawaiian Hibiscus stamp.  

This is one of the new Clear Watercolor PML cards.   I painted it a light blue with my watercolor paint.   Once painted the hearts show up very well.

Here is a close up of some of the flowers.   I'm not very good at watercolor detail painting so that is why I use the easy 'wash of paint' and then stamp method.

Pineapple Fun with Calypso

Image
Here is another card to get you in the mood for some summer fun! I featured the pineapple print paper from Calypso for this card and used the new One in a Melon stamp set.  I cut the pineapple featured shaped from the Artistry cricut cartridge on Canary cardstock.

To stamp my fruit I used the rock and roll technique to give the fruit some shading on the edges.  The piece layered behind the cut pineapple is actually one of the Picture My Life Cards that comes on one of the B&T sheets in the Calypso paper pack.

ok... now I'm ready for a fruity pineapple drink!

Products Used: Calypso Paper Pack - X7210B One In A Melon stamp set  - C1650 Calypso Sequins - Z3215 Black Shimmer Trim - Z1809 Black Ink - Z2105 Pear Ink - Z2197 Canary Ink - Z2643 Artistry Cricut Cartridge - Z3167

This stamp set was perfect timing for me!   I have been working on an album for my daughter and future son-in-law.  Back in January they both did a study abroad in Cuba.  I wanted to surprise them at their graduation/engagement party in May with a scrapbook album of their once in a lifetime experience!  This the page that I used this stamp set on -
