FCCB Challenge # 240, Anything But A Card

Happy Holidays 

My project for today is a treat box.  I wanted it to look like a gingerbread house.
I used Sweet Tooth Boxes for my Cricut cartridge. 

Another view

I cut the box out of brown paper and then decorated it like a gingerbread house and used the gingerbread cut from Paper Doll Dress Up and made a couple.  I used some scraps of paper, ribbon and gems to make most of my decorations.  The paper I used is from DCWV "Evergreen".

 Hope you join us for this weeks challenge.

FCCB Challenge #239 Beyond Red and Green

Hi! everyone. It's the countdown to Christmas.  The challenge today at FCCB is to make a Christmas project using colors other than the tradtional red and green.  I've seen a lot of decorations this year in pinks and blues.  Here is my card for inspiration today.

I used the following supplies:
Cricut cartridge Elegant Edges-scallops
Cricut cartridge Kate's ABC's - JOY
Spellbinders embossing folder-background
Fiskers stamp set for sentiment
Modge Podge mold and melting stick for birds

I embossed my card and then punched three evenly spaced 1" holes.  I cut the scallops to fit exactly over the holes for a frame using silver metallic paper from DCWV.  I stamped my sentiment and then heat embossed it with silver.  I punched three 1" circles out of the same paper and placed inside my card for my letters.  Some white silver edged ribbon and two doves and I was finished.  The hardest part was matching the scallop frames to the circles.

Hope you will all join our challenge.  
Link up your projects using any colors but red and green.

Challenge #237 at FCCB

Ready to embellish?  This weeks challenge is to use 3 embellishments.  But hey who wants to stop at three.  On my card I used Create- a-Critter to cut our this adorable Reindeer.  This is the first time I have used him/her.  So easy to piece together and so cute.

My three embelishments
Rhinestone Bling

The paper stack is DCVW "Evergreen"  from last year.  I made a couple of mini albums and have some scraps leftover which I used.  The reindeer is cut from Coordinations Chocolate Lovers pack from Joann's (perfect colors).  The string of lights are also cut from Create-a-Critter.

Now it's your turn.  Just link up to our challenge at FCCB.
Remember to use a Cricut cut and list your cartridge.
Have FUN.

Christmas Joy

The  Challenge for November at Gecko Galz is "Christmas Joy".

I used two collage sheets, "Christmas Cuties" and "Christmas Icons 2" for my images and made gift tags for Christmas.

Here are all four of them

I cut the tags from George and Basic Shapes Cricut cartridge. I sprayed them with Santa Red  and Dazzling Diamonds Glimmer Mist. I used two different stamps sets for the background. Fiskers "Season's Greetings" and G45 Christmas.  I used leftover flowers trims and ribbon and stickers from last year that only had one or two left in the package. I also added Diamond Stickles for some bling. Great way to use up scraps.

Here below are close-ups pictures of each tag.

I will be entering my tags in the Gecko Galz November challenge.  Join in the fun.

Which tag do you like best?  My fav is the first one, but they are all CUTE!

Bye Bye for Now, 

P>S> Check back in soon, I will be adding Christmas projects  frequently.  Gearing up for the Holidays.  I always make all my cards and tags as well as my gifts and packing.

FCCB Sketch Challenge # 236

This week at FCCB we are having a sketch challenge.  Here is the sketch below for you to interpret any way you want. Make sure you add a Cricut cut and let us know what cartridge you used.

This is the card I came up with using the sketch as my guide.

I used Create -A- Critter for my penguin.  I think he is so adorable. I added a red ribbon for his scarf and black flat-back pearls for is eyes.  The paper I used is from DCWV "Artic Wishes".

The sentiment is a  Fiskar's stamp set called "Season's Greetings".

I used a Martha Stewart snowflake punch for my top border and added some blue bling.  I heat embossed it with silver embossing powder in three layers.

For my scalloped border I used Elegant Edges Cricut cartridge.

For the little dots of snow I used white Glossy Accents.  To finish it off I added the white ribbon with the silver edges. 

Now it's your turn. Link up your project at FCCB this week.

Halloween Jeepers Creepers

Gecko Galzs Jeepers Creepers Challenge

I am entering the following Halloween card into the Gecko Galzs challenge for this month.  They are having their annual Halloween Blog Hop October 30 - November 1, 2014.

I used the "Witches" collage sheet for my image.

I layered the image on black cardstock and added a border cut from a Spellbinders die in orange.  I embossed orange cardstock with a spellbinders embossing folder and highlighted some of the diamonds with Stickles, Black Diamond.  The sentiment is from My Creative Time.  The trick and treat are from the "Halloween Circle and Squares" collage sheet from Gecko Galz.  I used glossy accents and popped them up for dimension.

Join me tomarrow at Gecko Galz for lots of Halloween fun and inspiration.

FCCB Challenge #234 Fright Night

Happy Halloween 

Hope every one is all ready for trick or treaters. I made this card really fast today.  The longest part of the preparation was piecing the vampire.  There are alot of little layers to put together, but I think he was worth it.  I used the Happy Haunting cartridge and cut him at 3.25".

The background and sentiment are from My Creative Time, "Spooky Starry Night".
I tied a black and white gingham ribbon and knotted it for the final touch. I did use black ink to the edges of the card to make it more spooky, the white was just too glaring to my eye.

Hope you will join our challenge this week and add your Halloween project.
