Crafty Gals Corner Challenge- For the Ladies

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

 I hope your May is going great so far.  We have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner and it is all about the ladies.  Our sponsor this month is Moonflower digistamps. 

I was lucky enough to get to play with this darling stamp called "Lily the White Queen".


I tried a new color combo on her dress.

Dress and Crown: R59, R56, RV34, R81

Skin: Ell, E21, E51, E50

Hair: E99, YR24, YR23

Flowers: BV34, BV31

Leaves: YG13, YG11

The pattern paper is from Frank Garcia's Wild and Free collection.  The sentiment is from Queen and Company.  When the card was all complete, I used Wink of Stella on her ruffles and crown.

Here is a closer look at her:

 

Now it is your turn.  Create something "For the Ladies" and share it with us at Crafty Gals Corner.

Bitten By the Bug 2- Graduation

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Graduation season is upon us and our new challenge is Graduation.  I used my Cricut to make a Congrats banner.

I used Close to My Heart Art Philosophy to cut the banner pieces and the letters.  Then I used cut files from Kate's Cuttables to cut the diplomas, hats, "You did it!" signs stars and swirls.  

Here is a closer look at the banner pieces.


 

To finish the pieces, I added some black enamel dots to each piece.  
 
Now it is your turn.  Create something for graduations with your Cricut and share it with us at Bitten By The Bug 2.

Love to Craft Challenge Blog

 


Hello Crafty Friends,

It's a new month that means we have a new challenge at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.  This month I decided to create a easel card.  

 

I love easel cards because the card can be displayed for all to see.

This card was made with some pattern paper I found in my stash, I don't even know where I got it.  I just loved the flowers and garden theme.

When you open the card, it stands like this.


 A little trick I did was I used a border of a pattern paper and placed across the bottom of the card inside and this can be used to hold the easel part up.

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.  Then create your own project and share it with us at Love to Craft Challenge Blog.

Bitten by the Bug 2 - May the Force be with you

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we have a fun challenge over at Bitten by the Bug 2.  Are there any Star Wars fans?  The theme this week is May the Force be with you.  If you are not familiar with the phrase, it is a Star Wars play on words for the Fourth of May.  Instead of fourth, it is force.

I have only seen a few Star Wars and have never really gotten into the series of movies and things, but I know it is very popular.  I put an adult coffee spin on my project this week.

Anyone for some DeathStarbucks?

I found this SVG while looking through google.  I thought it would be the best image for an adult coffee mug.  I found the SVG at Editable SVG.  I cut the image with permanent vinyl.

Now it is your turn.  Create a Star Wars inspired project using your Cricut and share it with us at Bitten By the Bug 2.

Thanks for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.

Crafty Gals Corner

 


 Hello Crafty Friends,

Today we have a new challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.  The challenge is  Easter/Spring I had so much fun creating this Easter card with this sweet image from The Paper Shelter.

  

Here is the card I created.


 This is the first rocker card I have created, but it will definitely be making more.

I started with a 5 1/2 in circle with my Cricut to make the card base.  I then cut a circle a little bit smaller for the blue circle from Doodlebug Designs pattern paper.

I then die cut the scallop pattern paper from Doodlebug Designs with the Scallop Around die set from Fun Stampers Journey.  I then die cut the image with the Journey Circle Die set from Fun Stampers Journey.

I colored the image with my Copics:

Egg: C1 COO

Stripes: V17, V15, V12, RV34, RV32, RVll, BG18, BG15

Bunnies: E55, E53, E51

Butterflies: YR02, E93

Bow Tie: YG13, YG11

Grass: YG17, YG13, YG11

Here is a picture of card folded.

 

To finish the card, I added the paper flowers from my stash to the bottom of the image.

Now, create a Easter or Spring card and join the challenge at Crafty Gals Corner.

Bitten by the Bug 2- Fairy Tale Challenge

 

Hello Crafty Friends,

We have a new challenge at Bitten By the Bug 2 with a Fairy Tale theme.  Think about all the stories you enjoyed as a child like Cinderella or Peter Pan.

Fun Fact: Did you know there are over 500 versions of Cinderella in many different languages and cultures.  

I chose to create a project for Peter Pan, because I loved these cute fairies.

I used a file from Miss Kate's Cuttables and cut the fairies from permanent vinyl.  I then added them to the side of a stemless wine glass to make a little light.

Now, it is your turn.  Create a fairy tale inspired project with your cricut and join us at Bitten By The Bug 2. 

Thank you for stopping by.  Please leave me a comment.
