Yesterday I posted the first in this series of 4 cards I made a couple of weeks ago. Today, I am posting my personal favorite in this set. What I really liked was using a cut out image in the background in a "very" non-traditional method! I think this has become one of my fav things to do now with my Cricut Art Philosophy Cartridge! Anyhow. . .here's the sketch:
Ever get stumped. . . as I often do. . . on what to do for cards? I found this great set of papers I bought last JANUARY, I bought it at the time not only 'cause I really liked it, but it was "different" - so non-traditional winter papers! Anyways, I used the Verve Challenges for the Month of November to create four cards with all the same papers and stamp set! This was my personal challenge. . . sometimes I get distracted by all the "papers" I have hoarded away and have a hard time sitting down and picking what to do. . . anyways here's the original sketch:
Okay, I have to say I'm finding I not only have a stash of Christmas Papers I've completely forgotten about. . . but some of my cards I'm completely forgetting about as well. However, I've found a stash of cards and thought I'd share them with you!
This first card features a stamp from Stampin' Bella and I've co-ordinated it by coloring with Copic markers.
This second card is featuring some wonderful papers which were released by Bo-Bunny last year! LOVE THEM!!! Again the stamp is one from Stamping Bella and colored with Copic markers to co-ordinate with the papers!
These cards are very simple layouts. . . and oh so easy to put together!
Okay, I'm a little behind in posting my MOJO layouts. . . figured I'd better get some more posted ;) This was the last week for the month of November, and over at MOJO they like to mix things up and focus on non-traitional sized cards, so the option was for a round or square card.
Since the majority of my cards are square, I figured I'd try making a round Card! Here's my take on the layout:
Can I say I LOVEmy CTMH Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge!!! Yipeee. . . it made this card so simple! The actual shape is the scalloped circle at 5 3/4", the green scalloped circle is 5 1/2", the red circle is 5 1/4" and the B&T papers were two circles cut at 5", the circles were then stacked on my cutter and I cut 1/4 of the circle. Added some ribbon, cut the snowflake again from my Cricut Cartridge, the image is stamped on a tag from the Cartridge and framed with the same image.
B and T papers: CTMH (Christmas papers from last year - discontinued) Cardstock: CTMH New Englad Ivy, Cranberry, & Colonial White Stamps: Stampalicious Accessories: CTMH Glitter, CTMH Button, CTMH Cricut Art Phiolosophy Cartridge, Copic Markers, Staz-On Black Ink
