Thank you card from Dreaming Tree

Hello Crafty Friends,

I love Dreaming Tree.  It is a great website for many great Cricut projects.  Today is a simple card.


All cardstock is from American Craft.  They have some great textured Cardstock that is perfect for something like this.

I cut the file at the A2 card style.  I then took the cup and embossed using the Fiddle Leaf Embossing Folder from Fun Stampers Journey to add texture. 
I then stamped the "Thank You", on the banner piece using Black Licorice ink and the stamp from Spellbinders.

Starburst Technique Coffee Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Have you seen the new technique of starburst cards?  I have had too much fun trying them out.

Here is the card I created using the Echo Park Coffee Collection.


The card starts with a 4 1/4 x 5 1/2 inch cardstock piece. 
Each pattern piece of paper is cut at 1 1/2 x 6 and then cut on the diagonal.
Then you place the first strip down in the middle of the card and build from there. 
Pretty easy.

To finish the card, I added the cup strip to the bottom of the card.  I cut this strip from one of the piece of paper.  I then added the sentiment from an icon sheet in the collection.

Sympathy Dutch Fold Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Can you believe that May is almost over?  The month flew by.  I have really enjoyed sharing some fun fold card this month.  I tried several fun folds that I will be using again.

One I really enjoyed making was the dutch fold card.  So today, I am sharing a Sympathy Dutch Fold card.


I shared the first Dutch Door fold back on May 5th, where I used the same paper pack; Dark Botanical Paper pad from Michael's.  This time I used one of the icon pieces and created the sentiment.  I stamped the sentiment from Inside and Out stamp set from Fun Stampers Journey with Black Licorice ink.
I then cut the butterfly from another icon piece and added it to the front.


Here is the inside with the sentiment.


Here is the card standing up.

Double Folded Thank you Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

I have been sharing fun fold card this month and today I am sharing another one.

Today I am sharing a card that is really more of a pocket with some one layer cards.


The base of the card is created with a double sided piece of pattern paper.  I used a piece of black white pattern paper from Doodlebug to create my card.  I used this pattern to create the base.

I stamped the Thank you on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink.  I then used foam squares to add it to the Bubble Gum Cardstock and then added that to the card.

Here is the inside cards.


The piece on the right has a pocket so you can add a gift card.

Coffee Buckle Card

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today I have what the pattern was called a buckle card.  Whatever name it is given, I like the fold.


The base of the card is created using Whip Cream Cardstock and Cream and Sugar pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs. 

Here is the card opened.


I started with a regular 5 1/2 x 8 piece of cardstock, folded in half.  I then cut 3 inches off one flap. 
I added a piece of Whip Cream cardstock measuring 3 1/2 x 4 1/4 to the front flap.  That makes the buckle.
Then I added strips of coffee bean paper to the sides of the inside and the top of the small flap.  I then added the piece of Whip Cream cardstock to the front flap and added the coffee cup pattern paper.
I die cut the coffee cup and the word coffee from Your Next Die set, Java Geek.  After I had the coffee cup together, I stamped the face on the cup from the stamp set with the same name.

Thank you stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Bitten By the Bug 2: Military Challenge



Hello Crafty Friends,

Happy Memorial Day!   Remember the real reason for why we celebrate this day.  I hope you are making the most of the day with your family.

Today we have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2.  We want to see your military makes.

I saw this idea on a Facebook group I wanted to create it.


I used the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge from Close to My Heart to create the rolled flowers.  I cut the flowers from Candy Apple, Whip Cream and Huckleberry Fusion Cardstock from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then added pearls to the inside of the blue flowers for the stars. 

I hot glued the flowers onto a piece of Black Licorice Cardstock, that I then placed inside the shadow box I got from Dollar Tree.

I then cut "Proud Military Family" file from Love SVG.com with my Cricut from white  and silver vinyl and placed them on the glass of the shadow box.  It is hard to see, but the stars are cut from silver vinyl. 

Thank you for stopping by,  Please leave me a comment.  If you have a Cricut, come join the challenge and show us your Cricut projects.
