Cars shaped card

 This card was made using my gypsy and the Disney Cars cricut cartridge. I used the route 66 sign and welded two of them together to make a shape card. I then cut out all the layers and used the gypsy to hide contours and make the shapes the way I wanted. The stamps are a fiskars stamp set that I used to emboss the background and stamp the car. I colored the car with watercolor pencils and added some sparkle to the detailing with squibbles iridescent.

Thanks for looking.

Cow birthday petal card

This card was made for a friend who loves cows.  I wanted a cow standing up and did not have one on my cricut cartridges so I used a program to convert an image for cutting. I love how I can use these programs to compliment my cricut cartridges. The cow was cut at 3.5 inches and layered. I shaded around all the edges. I used a piece of DCWV's Flower Shower paper pack for the background and grass. The blades of grass were cut from Disney's Pooh and Friends cricut cartridge to add a little more dimension. The party stamp is from Studio G. I then incorporated the envelope to become part of the card by mounting the card base to the envelope. The envelope was cut from Stampin Up's dsp. I then stamped on a circle with a Stampin Up set and made the circle into a tag. The ribbon is from Stampin Up.
Thanks for looking.

Hello Kitty Butterfly with Peachy Keen Stamps

I tried out my two favorite things on this card (Gypsy and Peachy Keen's Wide Eyed Kids face stamps). If you have not tried Peachy Keen stamps, you don't know what your missing. Kathy's stamps stamp perfectly without much pressure and they bring life to your projects.

I used the butterfly from Hello Kitty Greetings cricut cartridge and hid the contours in the face and body for stamping and highlighted with a jelly roll white gel pen.  The designer paper is from Prima "Rock on Love". The side accents are from Gypsy Wanderings cricut gypsy cartridge. I will add a sentiment later.

Thanks for looking.
