Anything Goes at My Paper Crafting

It is time for the new challenge at My Paper Crafting.  And this week the challenge is Anything Goes!!    I made a birthday card for the challenge.  I have been wanting to use this Cricut cut for some time, but just have not had the time.  I have been looking at several of the cuts on the Wrap It Up cartridge.  And that is when I ran across this cut of this fabulous automobile.

I just love this auto.  I wanted to use red for sure.  And then when I added the metallic gold to it, I knew I had what I wanted, an old automobile with great style!!

The papers I used are all from my stash.  I did a little inking with bronze around the mats.  I decided to add the strip of glittery ribbon to create a more festive mood to the card.  The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps.  And the scalloped circles are cut and embossed with two Spellbinder dies.  The three gems were added just for fun.

Please head over to My Paper Crafting to see what the design team members have created.  We hope you join our Anything Goes challenge and join in the fun.

Summer Citrus Colors and Birthday

This birthday card is inspired by the Tuesday Trigger, "Scene In Tangerine" at Moxie Fab World.  I began with papers from Recollection and My Minds Eye.  Then I used the Cricut Paper Pups cartridge to cut out my little canine friend.  This little guy looks like my friend's little dog.  The "Happy Birthday" is also cut from Paper Pups.  To pull the card together, I added the pretty little ribbon and a couple of sparkly gem flowers.  The little dog was inked in bronze.  

Now take a look at this trigger picture and tell me, what y ou think of my interpretation.  

Thanks for dropping by and have a summer citrus day!!

Happy Birthday From My Sheri Crafts

Its time for a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  And the challenge is all about birthday cards.  I have been making a set of cards for a silent auction at this year's Picasso Pets.  This is a night of fund raising for Hand In Paw.  There is a silent auction and a live auction.  During the live auction, art that has been done by a professional local artist, with the help of some furry friends is sold.

This past Monday, my three little dogs help artist, Becky Bradley with her painting.  It was hilarious and so much fun.  I cannot wait to see the finished product.  It has my sweet Ruby, Jack and Magnolia's foot prints all over it.  And Ruby even helped paint with her tail.

 Ruby and I are a registered Pet Partner Therapy Team with Hand In Paw.  We love the work we do and those we serve.

Well, as I said, I am making a couple of sets of cards for the silent auction.  One of the sets is going to be all ocassion cards with dogs on them.  Here are a couple of Birthday cards for the set.

I used paper from Recollections for the card.  The little dog is from the Cricut Paper Pups cartridge.  The little cupcake is from the Sweet Treats cartridge.  The icing on the cupcake is topped with glitter glue.  The three little flowers are from Target.  And I can't remember where I got the stamp for  the Birthday Wishes sentiment.  

This card is made with papers from My Mind"s Eye.  The "Happy Birthday" sentiment and little dog are both from the Cricut cartridge Paper Pups.  The little border at the top of the card ws made with a MS border punch.  And I added a little texture and color with the cute little ribbon and bow.  

I hope thse little furry friends with bring Happy Birthday wishes to someone.  Remember to go and see the wonderful birthday projects at My Sheri Crafts.  But, most of all we want you to join the challenge.

The cat and chair are cut from Country Life and the kitty milk bowl is cut from the Meow cartridge.  For texture, I added Ric Rac.  The sentiment I did on the computer.  This was such a fun and easy card to make.  

The next two cards have an apple theme.  

The apple tree and sentiment were cut from Country Life and the border was made with an EK Success border punch.  

The apple, pie, rolling pin and sentiment are from Country Life.  The tablecloth was done with an EK Success border punch.  

And here are a couple of cards using the pie cut from Country Life.

This card was done as a Thanksgiving card using the pie cut to make a pumpkin pie.The next card uses the same cut.

The buttons were added to the card to bring out the colors of the ribbon. 

This last card is a birthday card I made for my mom.

The bunny is from the Gypsy Wandering cartridge.  And the carrots are from Country Life.

Father's Day 2013 card

Today is Father's Day and I celebrate my sweet daddy, Tommy Wilson.  My dad is 89 years old.  How lucky I am to still have hime here.  He is such a wonderful loving and giving man.  He never asks for anything and always puts others firsts.  My dad is a wonderful Christian and a WWII vet.  Happy Father's Day to the very best daddy ever!!

Here is the card I made for him this year.  I was inspired to make this card by a card Mary made at Cardz TV.  

This is an A2 card.  The framed  yellow and black mats are cut from the Elegant Edges cartridges.  The yellow mat is emossed with a Cuttlebug folder.  The shirt and tie and cute from the Smply Charmed cartridge.  I used a gold ink pad for the edge inking on the tie.  So simple and yet so good looking for a man's card.  

Celebrate your dad and have a Happy Father's Day.

Tag With Gems

We are making tags with gems at My Paper Crafting this week.    Every time I make a tag, I just love it.  I don't know why I have not made many of them.

The tag base and topper were cut from the Cricut Sweet Tooth cartridge.  I inked around the edges with a bronze stamp pad.  The aqua decorative mat was cut from the Cricut Sentimentals cartridge and inked in bronze.  The bird and birdcage were both cut from the Cricut Serenade cartridge.  They were both inked with a gold ink pad.  I embellished the tag with a gem flourish and a sheer bronze ribbon and bow.  I think it just turned out so sweet.  I am committed to making more tags.

Don't forget to go visit My Paper Crafting and see more beautiful tags with gems.  Thanks for dropping by.  Please come back and visit often.

Summer Solstice at My Sheri Crafts

Don't you just love these long days of  daylight.  The challenge at My Sheri Crafts  is to create a project celebrating the Summer Solstice, the longest day of the year.

How fun it is when visiting the beach to go to the local amusement park and ride all the rides.  I especially thought of the folks visiting the Jersey Shore.  I know how happy they must be to be back on the Boardwalk and enjoying the beach, food and all the rides.  

I used the Cricut cartridge Summer Vacation for the rides.  The sentiments are from a K Andrew Design stamp set.  And I finished the card with a fun dotted ribbon.  Please join us for this fun summer challenge at My Sheri Crafts.  

And now here is a little music for all those at the beach this weekend.
