St Pat's. Challenge

Looking forward to some challenges this coming month!  Here is one for CSDivas... Make a St. Patrick's Theme Project.  It can be a card, layout or home decor, but it has to have the color green and a pot of gold somewhere on it.  Here is what I came up with...

Leprechaun and pot of gold- PaperDoll Dress UpRainbow- Create a CritterShamrock- Designer's CalendarAlso for FCCB, the challenge is to create a shape card, something other than a square or rectangle.  I thought the shamrock would be perfect.  Using my Gypsy, I was able to take two shamrocks, flip the second one, and weld them together.  Here is the inside...
For the sentiment on Designer's Calendar, I used my Cricut green marker and traced it out.  But because it was only 2 inches, I needed to trace it again with my black marker pen.

Hope you join us at CSDivas and play along for a chance to win.

Brad Card Challenge

Here is my second challenge for the month for CSDivas...
For this challenge, we're doing brad cards. These are sooo easy and fun to do. Here are a couple I did from a book my BFF gave me...

Step one: Cut out a shape


Step two: Cut out the shadow/blackout

Step three: Attach the two in one place with a brad so it swings

Step four: Embellish your card, hiding your brad if you want.

Ice Cream Cone: I used a button for the cherry and glued over top of brad (Indie)


Car: I used buttons again for the headlight, I glued one over a brad and the other I used pop dots so they are sitting up the same  (Graphically Speaking)

Star: I used a brad under the top star along with pop up dots to hide the brad. (George)

Can't wait to see what you do! If you don't have a Cricut, no worries, you can still play. Take a two shapes like a square, circle, heart and attach them together with a brad and then decorate as normal :) Perfect way to use your scraps for a quick and easy card!!!
