MY PINK STAMPER'S 12 DAYS OF XMAS CHALLENGE!

Good Evening friends!

So my pink stamper is having 12 days of Christmas over on her blog. 12 days full of video tutorials, challenges and great give aways! So for day 6 she has presented a challenge that is simply, create a layout or card with a Christmas or winter theme for those who don't celebrate Christmas.


For this challenge I made two cards. The card base and sentiment are the same but I made two diff rent cuts from the "3 birds on parade" cricut cartridge. I cut the cute little birds at 3 1/2 inches and I used My pink stamper "winter puns" stamp set.

Enjoy your night!




1ST BIRTHDAY CENTERPIECES

Here are some centerpieces that I made for a little girl's 1st birthday party. The theme of the party is cupcakes and butterflies. How cute is that!

For the base, I wrapped a 5x5x5 Styrofoam cube and then made a bow with black satin ribbon. I cut out the cupcakes in two diff rent sizes, the bigger one is cut at 2 3/4 inches and the smaller one is cut at 2 inches. The butterfly is from the "once upon a princess cartridge" and is cut at 2 1/2 inches.The number 1 is from the sweet treats cartridge. I then took shish-ka-bob sticks and broke them in half, making two sticks out of one. I attached a glue dot behind the cuts and attached them to the stick and just inserted them where I wanted on the cube. The tag on the front is also from once upon a princess and is cut at 3 inches. The sentiment (make a wish) is from paper trey ink's mega mix messages stamp set.

Enjoy your night!




CUPCAKE BIRTHDAY INVITES

Hi friends,

So, I haven't posted in a little bit but i have been sooooo busy! Between getting ready for Christmas (which I can't believe is next weekend already) and working on this order for a little girl's 1st birthday party (tomorrow)I have been on the go non stop! :)

So, these invites I made are for a friend that is celebrating her daughter's 1st bday tomorrow. She decided on a cupcake and butterflies theme, which I thought was adorable and the colors she choose are pink, purple and chocolate brown.

This invite is a standard A2 size. I used recollections card stock (from Micheal's) and I used the Martha Stewart cupcake punch for the little cupcakes. I used the swiss dots embossing folder with my cuttlebug to add a little texture to my pink mat.

I also made centerpieces and favors for this party which I will be posting soon!

Enjoy your night!



GINGER BREAD MAN CARD ( CHRISTMAS CARD # 11 )

Good Afternoon friends!

Isn't this ginger bread man the cutest! Well I think so,lol. So as all you gypsy owners know, we all received 6 free cartridges as an update recently. Out of all of them "SMILEY CARDS" is definitely my favorite.

I cut out the gingerbread man in the shadow feature at 3.5 inches in a dark brown card stock and then I cut him out again at 3.25 inches in a kraft card stock. I used peachy keen face stamps to stamp his little face and the sentiment is from scrappy mom stamps. I also cut out the little tag for my sentiment at 2 inches from the once upon a princess cartridge.

I hope you guys have a fabulous day!






OWL CARD (CHRISTMAS CARD # 10)

Hi friends,
So I've been mia for a little bit because getting ready for christmas has been driving me bonkers (in a good way of course :-) For today's card I decided to use the winter frolic cartridge again. I'm loving all of the images on this cartridge! Along with winter frolic, my scrappy mom stamps have been getting plenty of use,lol. This sentiment goes so well with this cut!

This card is a standerd A2 size card. The owl was cut at 3.5 inches. I also used tags, bags, boxes and more to cut out the little tag for my sentiment.
