Get Well Card Fronts


I made these card fronts for my new Monthly Card Front Swap I am hosting on Cricut.com. The theme for December was Sympathy or Get Well. All stamps used here are by StampsbyJudith.com. I love her stamps, and she has so much to offer! Check her out if you have not already! I only wish she sold her stamps in more retail locations! I hate paying shipping & handling on stuff!!!

Addicted to Cardmaking Swap for December


Here is the card I made for the Addicted to Cardmaking Swap I host on Cricut.com. December’s theme was Cute Critters, or Funny Cards. I had actually stamped and colored these out way back in June! I was looking for just the right card to add them to! The Mouse is by House Mouse stamps. I used the Gamsol Technique to color them. The little apples in the background are stubbies from StampsbyJudith.com.
This was the last theme for the Addicted to Cardmaking SWAP. But it was so successful, and I had such a great time with it that we are doing a second round of it. It will be the 2009 Addicted to Cardmaking SWAP!

Floral ATC


I made these ATCs for a Swap I hosted on Cricut, the Floral ATCS. I used a flower stamp that I had been RAKd from someone on Cricut. (Sorry, I don’t recall who sent it to me.) The stamp is by stampcraft. I have actually used the same stamp for a few of the things I have posted on this blog. I really do like it. It is simple, yet versatile! The sentiment is a sentiment by the House Mouse Company.

My Favorite Things ATC



I made these for a swap I hosted called My Favorite Things on Cricut.com. I was in two groups, and had to make two different ATCs using something that was my Favorite. We were to choose a technique, a stamp, or a favorite thing.
The first one I used the Snow Dots Cuttlebug folder. I mounted it to blue, and then ran a piece of ribbon through a snowflake ribbon brad I got from Oriental Traders catalog.
The second I used one of those cute $1 stamp sets from Joann’s. I got the chocolate chip paper from Joann’s as well. Although I had to search several before I found it! The sentiment reads: “Why are the best things in life either bad for you or fattening?”

Animal ATC


I made this ATC for a swap I hosted on Cricut. The bunny image is by Rubber Stampede. The blue printed paper is from a paper stack I have from ages ago. This one was kind of rushed, but it still came out cute.

Winter Months ATCs




I made these ATCs for ChewysMommy's swap on Cricut. The theme was Winter Months. We were to make 5 ATCs for each of the months January through March.
January's ATC is a winter theme, as after all it snows a lot in January! :-) I used a snowflake stamp, which I believe is from Rubber Soul. Then I matted the Snowflake with a Scallop circle. I didn't have any ribbon the right color, so I took a white that I had, and ran it across my blue stamp pad to match the blue snowflake. The bling is from a package of self stick rhinestones I found in the Kids craft section at my local Wal-Mart store.
February's ATCused three hearts from the something New to Love set by Stampin Up. The sentiment is from there as well. I used the Very Vanilla cardstock along with Pink Passion, Pixie Pink and Real Red Classic Stamp pad colors. The Pink and Red Cardstocks I took from my scraps bag.
March's ATC used a sentiment I found online, typed on my computer, and then cut down to size. I used a green patterned paper that I got form one of the Die Cuts with a View Glitter Stack. I used a little shamrock stamp I had from a set of mini's from a real old set of Foam mounted Stampin Up set that I have. Sorry I don't know the name of it.
