Awning Card with Sweet Cupcakes

This is an Awning Card SVG & is so Versatile!  The Cupcakes, cake stand and label are all from Cricut. I asked Cheryl from www.creativekuts.com to make this card file for me because I love the awning cards I see crafters posting to pinterest that they made with a word window punch. Wow Cheryl, you really knocked this out of the park!

The card base itself is from Kraft Card Stock  I used Cricut Create a critter for the outer 2 cupcakes. For the cherries I used some shiny shimmery holographic paper.  The pink with white hearts patterned paper is scraps from Lawn Fawn, Polka in the Meadow.  I used Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge for the center cupcake, the frosting layer which I ran through my Xyron and added some shimmer with pink glitter. That adorable label is also from Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge.  I used Cricut Sweet Treats Cartridge for the cake stand. Cuttlebug Swiss Dots for the embossing.  I used Happy Birthday Stamp from Craftin Desert Divas - Happy Celebrations stamp set ... looks like it was made to fit into that label from Cricut Cake Basics Cartridge!

For the inside I used some of the same papers to coordinate from the front.  I used my WRMK corner chomper to round the corners.  I stamped with a cute Cupcake stamp set that's been in my stash from a discount store (99 cent) for years... sorry I don't know the maker.

I will be entering into these fun challenges:
BBTB2 - Gemini "Twins" Challenge (2 Sm Cupcakes - Cricut Create a critter Cartridge)

Tri-fold Flag Card

I am loving this angled cut for this fun card.  Another great Card file from Cheryl over at www.CreativeKuts.com  You can find this card file here. (Will get link added for you later today)

 
 
This card is very busy with lots of embellishing from many sources lol.  I started with Recollections dark blue card stock for the base of the card.  The panels are cut from a K&Company paper pad called Americana.  I also purchased a matching embellishment kit that day and that is where the Glitter stars, bunting, star border and the circle art die-cuts come from, however I backed the circles with holographic scallop circles, the smaller is cut from spellbinders Ironwork Accents die and the larger scallop circle is from HOTP Circles & Scallops.  The fun Firecrackers are from Cricut Stand & Salute Cartridge.  I used yellow iridescent dimensional paint for the flame with red glitter in the center.  The adorable Fireworks are also cut from the Cricut Stand & Salute Cartridge.  I cut those from the same blue and red holographic paper and layered them together.
 
for the back panel I used a light blue paper for printing out the computer generated sentiment, then cut it out as a panel.  all edges of all pieces are inked with walnut distress ink using my round blending tool.

I hope you like my patriotic project today.  I hope to see you again soon.
Have a wonderful and Crafty Day!

Flower Centerfold Card

Are you just loving all of these fun new card cuts I have been sharing this week?  I have had so much fun working with Cheryl's new card files from www.creativekuts.com

If you came by yesterday you got to see a completely different masculine take I did on this card.  Today I am trying to mostly just utilize the file itself... Which is a wonderful file just how it is!

Flower Centerfold Card @ CreativeKuts.com

This card can be super quick and easy or it can be jazzed up however you like.  I had fun with it by utilizing the flower cuts from the front and placing them on the inside scattered around.  On the inside I added blue beads in a bottle on each flower.  On the front I added a dot of pink puffy paint inside each flower.  On the center large flower stack, first I ran them all thru Swiss dots embossing folder.  I curled the edges of each petal.  I used wink of Stella to accent the tips of the all the petals and I added just a small stripe thru the middle of each petal on the top blue flower only.  I added some blue and white twine to a pink button for the flower center.  I also embossed front panels with CB simply Charmed squares.  The inside pattern papers are from Recollections - All Girl
The inside sentiment stamp Happy Birthday is from HOTP - Botanical Blooms
The small flag banner with stitching on the front is from Desert Craftin Divas as well as the Hey there stamp... Both are from Short & Sweet Tags

Porthole Tri-Fold Father's Day Card

Yay! I finally got my Hubby's Father's Day Card made.  I used Cheryl's awesome new file - Centerfold Flower Card file from www.CreativeKuts.com and I left off the flowers and added a few other items to make it a masculine card.  I love being creative and making something beautiful into something else beautiful In a whole other direction 💜
If you stop by tomorrow you can see my centerfold flower card as the file was meant to be used with the flowers which you can buy Here - http://creativekuts.com/Center-Fold-Flower-Card-201639.htm
 
I created my own svg for the porthole by layering a silver circle on top of a smaller black circle, I added the 8 brads thru both of those layers... Then I added another black circle behind with foam squares in between each open Brad clasp to pop it up.  I then, as you can see only adhered it to the left side of the card.  The banner for the sentiment is a die cut from spellbinders that I used my ScanNCut to cut a shadow layer to back it... Love how that turned out!  I stamped the sentiment and only adhered the banner again to the left side of the card only.

Father's Day 6 Pack Box Card

My Daughter requested I make a Father's Day Card for her to give to her Hubby.  I gave her some options and she chose this adorable Six Pack Box Card from SVG Cuts.  But then she asked if I could make it look like the kind he drinks.  Hmmm I really had to put my thinking cap on but I assured her I would get it done.  I am so happy with how it turned out.
For the back I die cut a tag so she will have a place to sign this fun card from her and the kiddos.
So I used the SVG Cuts Kit Sunday with Dad to create this Box Card, I love her files!!!
 
I googled her Hubby's beer brand so I could try to come close to making it look right but when I saw the cute bottle I decided to take that approach and cut them with my ScanNCut
 
So Cute!!!
I also used the logo from the beer box online to create the Label designs for six pack box.  I had to resize each to line it up in SCAL with Mary's adorable file.
I also reprinted the label for the XX and fussy cut so I could pop that up on foam tape along with the sentiment Banner to create more dimension.
 
Products Used:
SVG Cuts Kit Sunday with Dad Box Card File
Papers- Recollections
HOTP "For the Guys" Clear stamp set for the Happy Father's Day Sentiment Stamp
Cuttlebug Simply Charmed Squares for the dry embossing on Green Handle section
Metal Screw Brads from my stash
Tag on Back - Simon Says Stamp Stitch Dress Up tags

Nautical Square Sunrise Father's Day Card

 I am lucky enough to be a guest designer over at Die Cuttin Divas again, Yay!!!  Always such an honor, thank you Ladies.  What a fun and awesome Square Sunrise card file this is from Cheryl over at Creativekuts.com  I will be making more of these for sure!  I needed to make an awesome Father's Day card for my guest designer spot.  My ideas  to get started with this card were to use my new lawn fawn stamp set and Cheryl's cool card cut and A ship image from my CD collection. This is what I came up with:

Sunrise Square card file – CreativeKuts.com
Sunrise layer– Kraft card stock
Pattern papers – the paper studio, the classics
Dry embossing – simply  charmed, squares
Ship printed label– crafters companion inspiration CD issue 2, Spring edition Times Gone By
Scan N Cut 2 - to cut out the printed Ship Label
Blue brads – recollections
Die cut anchors – Cricut Splish splash Cartridge
Bakers twine – Blue & White sew easy twine
Happy Father's Day stamp – Law Fawn celebration scripty sayings
Stamped with – memento  tuxedo black ink
I kept the inside pretty simple by creating the sentiment on my computer and the layering it over some printable paper from the same CD ROM collection that I got the ship from for the front of the card.   I love how it has the look of a lightly Stamped background of all types of transportation and time.
For the inside of the card I used:
The sentiment – created on my computer
Printable paper – crafters companion inspiration CD issue 2, spring edition - Times Gone By
Card layer Die cut – Simon says stamp, Bundle of stitched shapes
Ships wheel die cut – Cricut Splish splash cartridge
Blue Brad – recollections
I made a matching envelope from some of the same paper with my WRMK 123 Punchboard.  I then placed a ships wheel die cut to use as an inking mask and then inked that area with my blending tool and walnut stain distress ink then removed the mask.

Chickie Corner Sunrise Card

I had to use up my leftover Pieces from yesterdays Corner Sunrise card.  How fun!!!  I just love this card cut from CreativeKuts.com  You can buy the Corner Sunrise card Here  
This time I used my adorable Chickie stamp set from Craftin Desert Divas to embellish this Miss You Card.  Fussy cut Chickie by hand and colored the beak in with Spectrum Noir marker CR10.  I used spellbinders Fluer de Lis Doily Accents for the pink behind the chickie which is popped up on foam tape.  The white Scallop comes in the Corner Sunrise card file
for the embossing I used Suns & Flowers from Cuttlebug Create a critter set.  I sanded over the pink sections to show the white core.  Papers are all scraps from yesterdays project.  I also added 3 yellow gems from my stash.
For the inside I created the sentiment with my computer, printed out on yellow paper.  I used my Simon Says Stamp bundle of stitched shapes to cut it out and stamped the small chickie stamp in the corner.  Easy Peasy!!!

Floral Lace Mother's Day Card

 I am on day three of a killer headache so this card took forever to complete.  I wanted it to be extra special so I really took my time on it from the beginning planning stages all the way to the last pearl added.    I tried out some new techniques to me like coloring vellum with this card and really did have fun with it. That fabulous lattice card front is from Cricut Edge to Edge  cartridge. I then used that same shape to create a shaped card base.
 The beautiful floral images are from hot off the press lacy things stamp set.  I stamped onto Vellum with my black stazon ink, I ran it through my scan n cut 2.....  Oh good gosh you know I love that machine!    I did have to use my razor knife to cut the inner part, but that wasn't too hard.  I colored the backside of the vellum with my spectrum noir markers and a  couple of Green sharpie markers  for the leaves.  I stamped the floral image again on white card stock with the Stazon black ink and cut it out with my machine as well.   After cutting I went around the edges with a black sharpie marker just to get rid of any white edges.  I ran the white cardstock floral pieces through my Xyron so I could adhere it to the vellum pieces without it showing  through the vellum.
 I layered a center Mat cut from red foil paper and then another in black.  The Happy Mother's  Day sentiment is from Desert  Craftin diva's  called happy celebrations stamp set.  I stamped in versaMark and I heat embossed with Ranger white super fine detail embossing powder.  I ran that through cuttlebug  swirls embossing folder and the red foil in cuttlebug Swiss dots folder.   I also added some pearls from my stash I think I got them at Michael's.    I used sticky foam to pop up the floral images on the front of the card .
 For the inside of the card I layered another red piece that matches the front and I stamped the floral and the wishing you a beautiful day sentiment both from hot off the press lacy things stamp set with StazOn black ink because that paper  has a very slick surface.

 I will be playing along in these fun challenges:
Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - Challenge #275 - Mother's Day
BBTB2 - Mother's Day Flower Bouquet/Vase Challenge
