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
Stamping
Stickles
Rhinestone Bling
PLUS
Ribbon

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.

Bye Bye for Now,
KIM

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, 
KIM

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.

Bye, Bye for Now
