I finally got a set of Nestabilities to use in my Cuttlebug. Here is a wedding card I made for a coworker using the Nestabilities, stickles, a fiskars border punch, some ribbon from my stash, a Stampin' Up sentiment, embossing powder, and a cuttlebug embossing folder.

I made the following cards for friends at work. I really like the Panda one with the pink! The panda and bamboo were cut from Pagoda and then I used stickles on the bamboo.
This graduation card needed silver accents and I didn't really have any. So, I used some silver embossing powder on the on the large flowers and I think it turned out pretty good.
The frames on the grad card were cut from Storybook and the flowers were cut from Forever Young. The sentiment is from Stampin' Up.

A had a couple of requests for cards this past week. A coworker requested some notecards she could give her mother. Here is what I came up with:
Another coworker requested cards for her daughter. Check them out. I think they turned out pretty good.

Father's Day is coming soon so I decided to pull out one of my old Stampin' Up sets (Tractor Time). My dad is a farmer at heart so I figured this would be a great stamp for his card. Also, there is a challenge going on at My Pink Stamper to use yellow, brown and green in a project. Can you say John Deere colors? Perfect! Add a few stickles for bling, some Stampin' Up twine and a cut from the Storybook cartridge and viola!

Just wanted to do a quick post of a couple of birthday cards I made today. Most of the cards I make are girly so I wanted to try a couple of masculine cards. These were made using the Sweet Treats cartridge, a stamp from Stampin' Up and some stickles (even guys need bling).

This challenge was to make a shape card/scrapbook page/project. Recently I found a blog post (can't remember where) that had instructions on how to make a box from a 12x12 piece of cardstock that would fit A2 size cards/envelopes. I thought this would be a cute way to give someone a set of thank you notes.
So, this one was a little tricky. The challenge was to use a monochromatic theme (one color and a neutral). I found some yellow and gray polka dot ribbon recently so I decided to use yellow for this challenge. I used a Stampin' Up punch, a cuttlebug embossing folder, the ribbon and prima flowers.
OK, this challenge was to make something with a Child or with a child in mind. Since I don't have any kids hangin' around I had to think of something myself. So, I pull out the Everyday Paper Dolls cartridge and made the following. What little boy doesn't want to put on some sparkly armor and slay the dragon? Although, this dragon doesn't look very fierce to me.
This challenge was to make something for Teacher Appreciation Week. There are many teachers at my church and while I don't have any children, I realize how very important they are in a sometimes thankless occupation. So, here is a thank you to all the teachers out there! I used the Plantin Schoolbook cartridge, Tim Holtz distress ink, cuttlebug folder, ribbon from Wal-Mart and some stickles for bling.
So the name of this challenge is "I like you the least". We were challenged to use a cricut cartridge that we don't pull out very often. I chose the Destinations cartridge. To be honest, I've never used this cartridge. I haven't been to many of these places so I haven't had much need for it. I do have a friend who loves Yellowstone so I decided to make her a sticker (using the Xyron which I also don't pull out very often. I like that the image is sort of like a vintage patch or something. Check it out!
So this challenge was to think outside the box. So, last year I saw a blog (can't remember which one) where the poster used packing tape and glitter to make a snowflake card. I remember thinking it was a really cool effect but didn't get around to doing it. So, what better time to try than on NSD? Check it out!
So I haven't been crafty in a while so I decided to take part in National Scrapbook Day challenges over at Mypinkstamper.com. So, here are my creations!
This challenge was to make something with your mother in mind. I used the Walk in My Garden cricut cartridge, a Cuttlebug folder for texture, some twine from Stampin' Up, stickles, distress ink from Tim Holtz, and a saying from Stampin' Up.
