Spooky Themes at Cut It Up

Now I have prefrace this post with the fact that I am not a big fan of Halloween, therefore, this challenge was indeed a challenge. This wee at Cut It UpHalloween is right around the corner. We are asked to create a Halloween/spooky themed project. Include a die-cut. Challenge ends Oct. 31 at noon EST.
I decided to make a more cutsie spooky card. Check it out:

I used two cartridges for this card. The bird ghost and the spooky word come from the 3 Birds on Parade Cricut Catridge and the bird house comes from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Catridge.
I totally forgot to mention here that I used twine fromTrendy Twine Thank you Trendy Twine!
Now, it's your turn! Head on over to Cut It Up and link up your Spooky project!

Down on the Farm

It's time for another Fantabulous Cricut blog Challenge. This week we are asked to visit the farm and create a project using a Farm Animal (Cow, Pig, Horse, Sheep, etc). Ok, gotta love this especially since it got me using a cartridge that I have had for awhile and not used much! So, check out my card set below!

To make these cards I pretty much solely used the Country Life Cricut Cartridge, however, I did use the Paper Lace Cart for the base on a couple of these cards. I embossed the backgrounds to give the cards a little texture and added some distressing ink around the edges to embellish them a bit. 
I have included a few more pics of the entire set below, as well as the file folder I made (using a tutorial from Inking Idaho) to hold the card set.

Well, thank you for looking and I hope that you are inspired to create your own Down on the Farm project and upload it to Fantabulous Cricut!

Columbus Day

This week at Fantabulous Cricut we are celebrating Columbus Day. We are asked to make a project using a ship cricut cut. This turned out to be a very fun challenge for me. Check out my project below.

I decided to make a card. I used the ship from Wall Decor and More and attached it to two welded cards from the Just Because Cards Cricut Cartridge. I welded two cards bases together with my gypsy to create a card that would open in the middle. See the opened card below.

This is the card when it is opened up.
Thanks for looking at my project this week. Now it's your turn to create a project using a ship cut and don't forget to upload it to Fantabulous Cricut!

Breast Cancer Awareness With Cut It Up

Welcome to another Cut It Up challenge. This week we are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness by making a project in honor of it. Just remember to include a die cut and the challenge ends Oct. 17th at Noon! Here's my project.

This card was made using the Home Decor Cricut Cartridge for the base of the sentiment. I used a Bible verse stamp that says: 
"My peace I give unto you let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid." John 14:1
I thought the verse went pretty well with the theme of Breast Cancer this week. I embossed it with white embossing powder to help it stand out and added a pink ribbon from my stash to embellish the card and to create the pink ribbon.
Now, it's your turn to create a project and upload it to Cut It Up! Don't forget to add a diecut to your project!

Breast Cancer Awareness

Welcome to this weeks Fantabulous Cricut blog challenge. This week we are honoring Breast Cancer Awareness week. The challenge is called "Get 'em Squished" and we are asked to use the color pink in our projects. 

I decided to make a pink and white card. Every woman is beautiful so I choose to use a stamp that said Beautiful and then I embossed it with white embossing powder. I used the Stamping, Home Decor, and George and Basic Shapes Cricut Cartridges to make this card. I created the Breast Cancer Awareness ribbon out of some pink ribbon that I had and added a peice of bling to embellish it.
Now it's your turn to upload your project to Fantabulous Cricut!
