Our Kreative Karma post! My favorite Chic

Hello Crafty Friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful day! Today is my day to post for Our Kreative Karma. I can’t believe that March is almost over with so, again this month we were to use pastels, spring or Easter designs. I chose to make this a birthday card using a chick and some My pink stamper stamps.

So Here’s my card
I used Create a critter for the chick and cut her at 3 1/2" 
For the banner I used the ek success scallop scallop punch on green glitter paper. Then wrapped it with limeade twine from doodlebug. 

I added some glossy accents on the beak and feet. 
and of course some googly eyes. 

I used My Pink Stamper stamps and memento tuxedo black ink. 

I think it turned out so cute. what a great card for a birthday close to Easter or just to send to a friend to let them know you are thinking of them. 

I hope that you will go over to Our Kreative Karma blog to follow us and see what the other designers have made this month.

Hey Chicka!

Hello Crafty Friends!
I hope you are all having a wonderful Thursday. I have been crafting up a storm and just loving that I have time to get in my craft area. I suffer from anxiety and depression and getting in the zone helps take away all of that, so if you have those problems I would love to hear about how crafting has helped you. I know it can be a sensitive subject to talk about but I think it is time to get it out in the open. So that others know that there is someone out there that understands them.
Ok so I have been on this Chick and Chicken kick all this week. Next week I am gonna have to find something else to focus on. Hehe! 

.I used country life to cut out the chicken. I cut her out at 3”. Here are some pictures of the cuts and the card.

I guess that is it for today. I hope you all decide to get in your crafty space and get some crafting done today!
Thanks for visiting my blog and see you tomorrow.

I used the paisley cartridge to cut the boots at 3” they are super big at that size.

After cutting the boots I added some stickles on the "pulls" and on the decor of the boot. then added glossy accents to the soles of the boots. 

The stamp is from a stamp set that came from oriental trading com. which i stamped with pacific blue ink. I tied a bow with yellow twine from doodlebug. 

So that's it. Thanks for stopping by.

Bunny back in town card Our Kreative Karma Post

Hi Crafty Friends!
I hope you are doing well. For your viewing pleasure today I have a circle card that I used a cricut cake cartridge and birthday bash to make a simple and cute card.

The cuts I used are from
Holiday Cakes pg 69 for bunny @ 2 ¼”
Birthday Bash pg 29 for card and layer @ 4 ¼

Here is my card.

I cut the bunny from the cake cartridge from a pale green and pale purple. Then I added stickles to the dots on the bunny.

When I cut the card, I cut both layers at 4 ¼” then I used the swiss dot cuttlebug folder to give the layer some demision.
The stamp is from walmart studio g it says the bunny is back in town. But with the embossing it didn’t stamp to well so I had to rewrite it.

Then I tied a bow with green satin ribbon.

And that is it. That’s all folks.
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will head over to Our Kreative Karma and follow our blog so that you can see when my design team sisters post.

Our Kreative Karma Post " My Favorite Peep"

Hi Crafty friends!
I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. Mine was okay! I had a little stomach bug on sat. but I got over it pretty fast, and I was able to create this cute little card for your viewing pleasure.

Here is my card and then I will tell you what I did.

For the bunnies I used and svg file. (I will try to find the link for you and place it here) I cut the bunnies at 2.5 inches on my cricut using scal.
After cutting them, I ran them through the xyron sticker maker and added clear glitter to them to make them look candied.
I could not remember if peeps have eyes or not so I chose not to add any because when I did they feel off.

I then cut 2 clouds that I found on google images. I made them a scal file and cut them at 2” and 1”
I popped the 1” up on foam tape.

For the grass I just cut the green paper with my scissors and ruffled it up.

I hand wrote the sentiment but I am not happy with my hand writing and wish I would have printed it on the computer so I may change that.

So that’s all folks!
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will head over to Our KreativeKarma and follow our blog so that you can see when my design team sisters post.

Happy Leprechaun Card dt post

Hello Crafty Friends!

I hope you are all doing well. Today is my designer day over at Our Kreative Karma. This month them is Spring, we are to create something for St. Patty’s day, Easter or use pastels. 

I chose to create something for St. Patty’s day.

So here is my card.

I used the simply charmed cricut cartridge. 

I cut the leprechaun at 3”. 

I used a sizzix face instead of cutting out the facial features on the cut.

For the card, I used a dark green card stock cut to an A2 card. 
The gold paper is from American Crafts foil pack. I cut it at 5 ¼ by 4
The shamrock paper is from Paper studio from hobby lobby.

I used a studio G stamp for the sentiment, and stamped it with topiary in from close to my heart.

I used an action wobble to give the lep. some movement. Then I added some glossy accents to the eye and boots and some glitter to the shamrock paper.

I love the way that he turned out.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope that you will go over to Our Kreative Karma and follow us. 

There are so many talented ladies on the design team and I would love for you to check out the other designers.
