Easter Bunny Card

The card below was made using Everyday Paper Dolls (Bunny), Plantin School Book (Flowers and Grass) and Doodlecharms (Egg). I used chalk and white pencil to accent the Bunny. The grass was cut in white and then inked with inky brushes in green and the flowers coloured with sakura stardust pens. Also the background was embossed with a Sizzix texture plate. TFL

Once Upon A Princess Castle

Here is the castle I made today using the Once Upon A Princess Cricut Cartridge. On my castle I also used the Jubilee Cricut Cartridge to cut a banner which I cut in half and wrapped around a cocktail stick to make a flag. All the castle components were cut at 7 inch and my castle was made completely out of A4 card stock of which I used 7 sheets (3 sheets of light pink, 3 sheets of dark pink and 1 sheet of brown). I also made a slight modification to my castle using design studio, with which I used the main front of the castle (the one with a drawbridge) and hid the contours so that all that was cut was the drawbridge itself. This enabled me to then emboss my drawbridge with a wood effect fiskars embossing plate and then I inked this with a lighter brown to bring the patternation out. From the base of the castle to the top of the tallest turret (with out flag) the castle measures just over 8 1/2 inches tall. Thanks for looking :)

Sheep Card

Here is a card I made using the Easter mini and Story Book Cartridge. The cut file was from a custom crops project which can be found here. On my card I used glossy accents on the nose and stuck on some clear crafty notions rainbow drops for eyes.  The white part of sheep is embossed with D'Vine Swirl cuttlebug folder. I also used Old Paper distress ink to ink the grey parts of the sheep.

Happy Birthday Cards for my Mum

Today as well as it being Mother’s Day is also my Mum’s Birthday so I thought I would share with you the cards I made her. The first card is the one I gave my Mum. It is made using A Child’s Year Cartridge for the fairy. The wings of the fairy have been glittered using a fine glue nib and some crystal glitter. The Happy Birthday was stamped using versa mark and then a chocolate embossing powder that actually smells of chocolate. YUM! The background shape that fills the card was cut using the Story Book Cartridge.




Here is the second card I made, which I used the Love Struck Mini cartridge. I cut the heart out of Ice White paper (A shinny white) and then inked it using my Inky brushes (these look like shaving brushes). TFL.

I also created a gift using the Easter mini Cartridge. To make it you cut a cupcake wrapper and then roll a pair of socks up and add a pompom for a cherry. I scrap lifted this idea from Greenbean on the cricut message board. To view their original post please click here.
