Today we had a fun time at my sister’s house. She is expecting so I made a cute “mommy to be” card for her and gave her some maternity clothes (this is her first child). I had made my mom’s card before so I thought I would just add a cute envelope. Here are my two projects for Mother’s Day:
I used the New Arrival cricut cartridge on this card. The mommy was cut at 4 1/2 inches. I cut three layers: 1 black, 1 brown and 1 patterned paper. The black was used for the main figure. The brown was used for the pants and the hair (I used a silver marker to make the polka dots) and I used the glitter stack for the patterned paper. The card was cut at 5″ tall x 4 1/2 wide.
Now for the hippo on the envelope I used the create a critter cutting it at 4 1/2 inches. I used the moving eyes (found at Michaels) and the Martha Stewart glitter polka dots paper. I used plan fuschia card stock and pink card stock for the back ground and mouth of the hippo.
Today I did a smaller project. I used my Stand and Salute cartridge cutting the triangle banner at 6 1/2″ Fit to length button (using 9 x 11 1/2 paper). I used the Storybook cartridge to cut out my letters and shadows at 4 1/2″. I used Sparkles cotton candy pink paint to draw a border around the triangles. I used a flower stamp using green ink. I connected all the triangles but punching holes on each top side of the triangle and weaving in the string.
Today is National Scrapbook Day and I am tagging along to mypinkstamper.com challenges. I was up really early (for me) so I can watch and start watching the blog and the challenges. The first challenge was creating a Mother’s day card. Here is my version….
Well we know my mom had 4 kids so I decided to use the Create a Critter cartridge along with the Mother 2010 cartridge for this card. I also used my cuttlebug. The card is 5 1/2″ x 8″. The monkeys were cut at 2 1/4″, Mama was cut at 2″. I used the Animal Crackers stack from DCWV for the pink leaves back ground. I used basic pink, lime, hot pink, black, beige, brown and green card stock from Recollecitions (sold at Michaels).
