As a guest designer, I have been asked to feature one of my favorite cricut cartridges. And that is QUARTER TIME. As a vocalist, with a degree in music, I feel like the Quarter Note cartridge was created just for me! I have such a love for music and think that it is so over looked in our education system. Music is the Universal Language. No matter what our differences are, music can be loved and understood by all. So, as a kindergarten teacher I make sure that music, and all the fine arts are in the forefront! Now, without preaching any more, here is what I have created for you.
I just love this phrase,"Where words fail, music speaks". And the piano and little girl have such a bit of whimsy to them. I just love them.
I used K&Co paper to create the card, with the exception of the metallic gold. It is an AC Specialty paper.
The little Recollections flourishes, I found on sale at Michaels. I only wish I had purchased more. The fabric flowers are from Prima. And I finished the card with ribbons from my stash.
This next card is made with one of the gorgeous roses from the Quarter Note cartridge.
I used K&Co. paper for this card along with a stamp from Hampton Art.
I added Recollections flourishes some of my favorite sheer ribbon. JoAnn's has a large supply of this ribbon in many colors at a very reasonable price.
This next card is a very simple card. It has a cut from the Quarter Note cartridge that reminds me of a street performer in New Orleans' French Quarter.
I used DCWV papers and a few gems from Recollections. The sentiment is stamp from KAndres's Designs Positive Thinking set. They are great stamps, made right here in the good old USA, with $1.00 from each set going charity.
Using musicians again, I created this Christmas card.
I began creating this card by embossing the base paper with the Cuttlebug and a music folder. I then did some inking to it with a Tim Hioltz stamp. The sentiment is from a collection of holiday stamps from The Oriental Trading Company. I just think it is the perfect sentiment for this card. The papers used to make this card came from my scraps. I chose not to add any additional things to the card, because I wanted the embossing to be a focal point.
And now here is my last card made with the Quarter Note cartridge. This cartridge has a lovely font on it. So I used the font to make a monogram note card.
The label on the card is a cut from the Preserves cartridge. And the font is from Quarter Note. I used the divine swirls embossing folder on the top layer of the label. These papers are from Recollections. Just a simple note card, with a touch of loveliness.
Now, if you do not have the Quarter Note cartridge, you may want to take another look at it. It has something on it for everyone, not just music lovers like me.
