Mickey hand shaker card

I needed to make a thank you card for my Grandson's Kindergarten teacher so this is what I came up with.
I started out with a black A-2 card base folded at the top.   I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitched shapes set for the stitched rectangle that I cut in red.   I ran that through my Cuttlebug star embossing folder.  I used a stitched fishtail banner stacks die for the black-and-white polkadot which is from Pebbles - Basics.   I tied a bow around that layer with some red and white bakers twine.  I used a stitched scallop circle die to cut the black for the center.  Using my Cricut expression and an SVG file for the shaker hand I got from my friend Cheryl over at Creative Kuts.  I filled the shaker with some red seed beads.  I backed the shaker and also cut a stitched banner for the sentiment out of some yellow striped pattern paper from my scraps stash. The sentiment I created on my computer and printed and cut out  with the sew stitched fishtail banner die.   I cut some small hearts out of red foil on the Cricut expression to scatter on the front of the card.
On the inside I used my Cricut explore to write the personalized sentiment to his teacher.   I also had it write his name and the school years at the bottom and cut a small Mickey head to place next to his name.  The Mickey head is from Cricut Mickey and friends cartridge.  I cut three more red foil hearts to scatter around inside.  I used Simon says stamp bundle of stitch shapes for the white stitched rectangle.  I left plenty of room for him to personally sign his name also.

One final touch, I had my Cricut Explore Air write out her name on the envelope.
That's it for me today, thanks so much for stopping by to see my projects.

Kinder-Grad Star Wobble Easel Card

 My little man (Grandson) is graduating kindergarten tomorrow so I wanted to make him a fun interactive card to commemorate the day.   I decided to go with an easel card with an interactive action wobble.

The adorable star is from Cricut – Simply Charmed.  The graduation cap is from Cricut – Everyday Paper Dolls.   All of the stitched layers are from different die stacks.  The large stitched rectangle is from Simon Says Stamp dies - Bundle of Stitched Shapes. 
The small stitched stars are from a star die stack, as are the smaller stitched rectangles that are from a different die stack, which I used to pop up on foam tape for the inside sentiment.  The sentiments are written with the Cricut explore air using these fonts:  2019 is BauerBodni BT and everything else is AmeriGarmnd BT

Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I'm up to in my craft room.  Have a wonderful Day.

Rose Beauty Birthday Card

I am in love with this beautiful Layered Rose svg from Creative Kuts!  I really had fun putting this together!
The flower is 3 layers, two different colors of Bazzill card stock, Forget Me Not & Hyacinth card stock and then the top layer is a repeat of the darker, Forget me not color that I colored a shade darker with spectrum noir marker LV1.  The leaves I used just two layers of green Card stock plus a spectrum noir marker VB1 for some shading.
Card Base layer - Bazzill card stock, Forget Me Not color
White layer - stitched rectangle die from Simon Says Stamp dies - Bundle of Stitched Shapes
I then took one of my Curved Scallop Edge Die from Your Next Stamp
I used my Tim Holtz Distress marker spritzing tool with spectrum noir marker LV3 for the purple splats of color on white.
The Happy Birthday Stamp from Tags & Trims stamp set - HOTP stamped in Violet Ink and heat embossed with clear acrylic embossing powder.

Happy 1st Mother's Day Card

Following the sketch over at Tuesday Morning Sketches this week is how I came up with the layout for this sweet baby themed Mother's Day card for my Beautiful Niece who just recently became a Mommy.
I started with a Gravity Grape purple card base.  The cute diaper pin pattern paper is from a Momenta - Baby Paper pad.  I used my stitched rectangle from Simon Say Stamp (SSS) - Bundle of Stitched Shapes to cut that layer.
I created the sentiment with my Cricut Explore using Fontastic Fonts - DJ Terrific font written with Cricut .03 black pen onto Cricut Note Card from Ultimate Creative Sampler Cartridge, cut in pink and shadow layer in the same gravity grape purple card stock.  The fun embellishments are all from Cricut also:  Rattle - Wild Card Cartridge,  Bottle & Baby Face -  Doodlecharms Cartridge
For the baby face I cut the shadow layer instead so I could stamp my own face.  That cutie patootie face stamp is from Peachy Keen - Just Baby, using a white gel pen to enhance the eyes and baby tooth.   I used a cute scrap of pink and purple chevron pattern paper to cut her sweet hair bow from and added a pink iridescent enamel Dot to the center. 
For the inside I used more pattern paper from that same stack this time with cute little baby feet all over and cutting with that same SSS Stitched Rectangle die.  For the Sentiment Stamp I cut a label out from Spellbinders - Labels Twenty-Three and stamped the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo black ink.  I also stamped a lacy heart in pink and then went over it in purple ink.  Both of those stamps are from HOTP - Lacy Things stamp set.

Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful rest of your weekend.  Crafty Hugs, Eva Scraps

2019 Star Grad Shaker Card

This awesome card file is an SVG from CreativeKuts.com   We have a Grandson graduating High school in a few more weeks so I needed a cool card for him.
I started with a gray card base.  The pattern paper is from DCWV - Glam Rock with foil stars, I shadowed that in black card stock.  The large shaker star is sitting on top of the card using several cutouts in white to build up for the shaker element.  I used a solid star in black card stock for the back or bottom of the shaker and a gray star frame to go over the solid acrylic star on top.  I used some mini metallic silver and gold stars and some mini gray beads inside the shaker element.  Cutting some of the stars and the 2019 out of silver glitter card stock (The Paper Studio) and the rest of the stars from black card stock.  All of the small stars are popped up on foam tape and the larger ones are adhered flat.  The sentiment banner is popped up on foam and written with Cricut pen on the Cricut Explore.

On the inside:
I really didn't have much for Graduation in my stamp collection so I used a CD from HOTP - Card Greetings & Sentiments that I edited in my Craft Artist program on my computer.  I shadowed that with black card stock cut with a Stitched Rectangle from SSS - Bundle of Stitched Shapes.
Thanks for stopping by, have a wonderful Weekend!  Crafty Hugs, Eva Scraps

Flower Edge Birthday Card

This card was inspired by a design I saw on Pinterest ..... Blog - Paper Therapy
I loved how the evacuated flower piece is flipped around to complete the flower.  For my card I cut the pattern paper down to 5 1/2" X 2 1/2" I then took my SSS Straight stitched edge die from Simon Says Stamp - Bundle of Stitched Shapes Die set and butted it up against the edge on either side to create the stitching.  For the flowers I used Stitched Daisies Wafer dies - Simon Says Stamp.  Using both styles for the smallest daisy .... the cutout flower plus the stitched edge outline on the pattern paper piece.  I used the flower center die, cutting in black card stock and then adding clear wink of stella for a beautiful sparkle in the flower centers.  I used black cardstock for the Happy Birthday word die but cut them apart to change placement.  The pattern paper is from Pink & Main - Beach Babe.  A really simple but striking birthday card for my stash box of cards.  Thanks so much for stopping by to see what I am up to in my Craft room this week.  You can expect to see a bunch of cute shaker cards coming up soon.  Crafty Hugs, Eva Scraps
