Kick Back & Relax

Hello friends! I hope you are having a fantastic Wednesday! I've been feeling a little under the weather, which has made me more spacey than usual, which is scary! I posted the Father's Day card for my husband in my last post, but I totally spaced on posting the card I gave to my Dad, so I'm sharing it with you today. I seem to say this a lot but better late than never, right?!....

CRICUT:  Imagine
CARTRIDGES:  "Life Is A Beach" (image), "Ancestry" (color palette)
PAPER:  DCWV  "The Travel Stack", Colorbok  white cardstock, kraft cardstock

Oh Happy Day!

Hi friends! I hope you are all having a great week! Today I have a quick card to share that I made the other day....

The base is white cardstock, sized at 5 x 5.5" (I don't know why the weird size, it just kinda worked out that way, lol). All of the colored & patterned papers are from the "Best Friends" cartridge. The patterned background layer is edged with Fiskars Paper Edgers in "Victorian". The yellow background is cut from the "Elegant Edges" cartridge (which I just bought & am loving!) and is embossed with the "Birds & Swirls" Cuttlebug folder. The edges of this layer & the card base are inked with some Martha Stewart ink in "Hibiscus".

The flower image is from the "Florals Embellished" cartridge (pg. 37, cut at 4"). The gems in the center are from my stash and the faux stitching & dots were done with a white Sakura gel pen. The twine is from the The Twinery and I used some Stickles in "Eucalyptus" on the leaves.

The sentiment is from 2 separate K Andrew Designs stamp sets:  "Owly Hoo Sentiments" and "Of Mice & Lil Men".

As you can see, I only used a part of some of the sentiments, easily done by just inking the part I wanted & wiping away any excess with a Q-tip or baby wipe. This makes the stamp sets even more versatile than they already are!

To purchase these sets or any others click HERE.

Just a reminder that you will receive a FREE bonus stamp set when you spend $25 or more! There are many fabulous NEW sets available - some available now & some available for pre-order. So head on over & check 'em out!

Getting Cricky Simply Sunday Challenge - "Summertime!"

Hi everyone! I feel like I'm 3 steps behind today because I'm coming off a debilitating migraine, but thank goodness for my doctor & good medication! I'm feeling gradually better & coming out of the fog. Anyway, enough about me, lol. Today is the start of another Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky! Our theme this month is "Summertime" & here is my contribution....

For the card base I used white cardstock & the "Art Philosophy" cartridge (pg. 61, size 5"). I inked the edges heavily with some VersaColor ink. The blue layer is from the same page, cut at 4.7". The sun image is from the "Enjoy The Seasons" cartridge, cut at 3". The blue layer is a pattern from this cartridge also. The twine is from The Twinery & the sun is accented with Stickles & Glossy Accents. The rhinestones are from my stash & the sentiments are heat embossed using Recollections embossing powder.

The sentiments are from the K Andrew Designs stamp set called "Food For Thought" ....

Isn't that cute? You can purchase this set - plus there are many more fabulous stamp sets available at K Andrew Designs - including many awesome new releases! You should really check it out, if you haven't already! *** During the month of June, if you spend $25 or more you will receive a FREE bonus stamp set! ***
