Etched Glass Bakeware

This is a great gift idea. I used my Alphalicious Cricut cartridge to cut out NANA'S DISH in vinyl. I applied the vinyl to the dish and then applied etching cream. The directions on the etching cream say to wait 10 mins but I let it set for 20 mins.

Birthday Present Crisscross Card

I just love making crisscross cards. They are super easy and you don't need an envelope. I cut the present using Sweet Treats Cartridge. I used Tie the Knot Cartridge for the base of the card.

Zebra Birthday Card

 I made this card for my Niece. It's 5"x5". I used Create a Critter for the Zebra. I embossed Happy Birthday using my "happy birthday A2 embossing folder." I used a nail file to sand the embossed image to make the words pop a little bit. I used "Seeing Spots A2 folder" for the green. Then I adhered a hot pink ribbon to clean up the seam line.
The inside simply says "Happy Birthday" and it was cut using Create a Critter.

P.S. Create a Critter is my favorite cartridges... Just don't tell the other cartrdiges that!

Happy Birthday Ladybug!

This card reminds me of spring, which is just around the corner. This card is 5 ½ inches in diameter. I used Doodlecharm for the ladybug. I layered the wings with black, red and polka dot paper to give the wings dimension. The grass is from Create a Critter and the flowers are cut from the 2011 Mother’s Day Bouquet. For the actually card I welded two circles together, using design studio.

This is a side view, so you can see the wings and the grass popping up

This is the inside.

I know another criss cross card, but I love making these. I used Tie the Knot's invitation feature to create this card. The flowers were made using the NEW Mother's Day Bouquet cartridge.

Baby Olivia

 This card didn't turn out the way I pictured it in my mind but it's still cute. I used Doodlecharms for the baby bottle, the duck, and the diaper bag. Olivia is from Opposites Attract. The owl is from Create a Critter and I handmade the onesies. In the back there is a milk jug and that's from Create a Critter too. I made a pocket on the diaper bag for the owl, onesies, and the bottle. I didn't glue those down, so Olivia's mom could use them for her scrapbook.

Well I know Thanksgiving is over... but this card is so cute I had to post it. I only used Create a Critter for this project. I embossed the turkey feathers with D'Vine Swirl Cuttlebug folder and Swiss Dots for the turkey. I added a piece of stripe ribbon to the top hat to add a little color. I also added glitter to the swirls on the turkey feathers.

The inside of the card is my favorite part. Since I made this card for my niece, I used Thanksgiving jokes for the sentiment.
What happened when the turkey got into a fight? ---he got the stuffing knock out of him!
Which side of the turkey has the most feathers? --- the outside!

Criss Cross Skull

My favorite blogger Donna, posted a cut file for a criss cross card and I couldn't resist trying it out. If you want to make one too, check out her blog! The skull is from Indie Art Cartridge and it matched my paisley skull paper perfectly. All the paper is from DCWV. I did emboss the solid blue piece under the ribbon to all just a little more detail. For the inside card, I faux stitched it with a Gelly Roll pen and added a computer generated sentiment.

Happy Birthday Princess

I made this card for my friend's sister last October. She had a Halloween princess party. I was crunched for time and this is what I came up with... LOL. I used Indie Art Cartridge for the skull. Using design studio, I welded two blackout skulls together to make the card. The crown is from Sweet Treats cartridge and happy birthday if from Create a Critter.

 For the inside, I printed a computer generated message then cut it using my Cricut. I added the crown and a few rhinestones and "poof" I was done.
