"Tag It" at Tuesday Throwdown

It's Tuesday so that means another awesome challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Tag It" and we are sponsored by
 http://thepapershelter.com/

I've used the beautiful "French Brunch Paper: and their precolored image "Yummy" for my card
 
I printed the "Yummy" image on their pretty paper and on another piece of scrap.  Then I fussy cut the image on the scrap and added it to the original print with pop dots for some added dimension.
The tag is a Cricut cut and I've used the write then cut feature for it and for the inside.



Thanks for checking in!  I hope to see you join in the fun this week!

A Japanese "Screen" Card

Here is another try at the screen card:


"The Oriental Collection" stampset created exclusively for Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine.


The poem is one I found online and used the writing function on the Cricut for it and the thank you section..

I'm really loving these cards!

My First "Screen" Card

We have a new challenge this week at Tuesday Throwdown and our theme is "Create Your Own Background".  I've created the background on the inside of my card.

 I'm excited to share this card with you today!  I saw these super cute "Screen Cards" in the Cardmaking and Papercraft Magazine and I decided I could recreate those in Design Space.  Here's the magazine picture:


And after much pasting, slicing and dicing, here is my first one:




I love how it turned out and it was so fun!  I've created the background on the inside with a foam daisy stamp that I randomly stamped on my paper before cutting it for the panels.  The poem on the left was done with the writing feature of the Cricut.  Super easy and perfect for my card!  All the diecuts are Cricut images.  The poem says:  "Mother's love is peace.  It need not be acquired.  It need not be deserved."  by Erich Fromm.

Thanks for stopping by!

A Panda Hello

Good morning!  It's time for another sweet challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Crop Your Image" and we are sponsored by
 https://www.etsy.com/shop/KittyBeeDesign

I've used our sponsor's cute "Winter Panda" for my card.  Here is the original digi:
and here is my card with the cropped image:

I didn't do any coloring this time and used papers with lots of color.  The sentiment is made with the Write and Cut feature of the Cricut Explore, then mounted on "Doyley Circles", Cricut cuts. from The First Few Years cartridge.  The paper is from Studio 18 and the ribbon is from American Crafts.


Thanks for stopping by and I hope to see you join us this week!

From All of Us Critters

Well, Tuesday brings another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown!  This week our theme is "Critter Crazy" and we are sponsored by:
 http://www.mygrafico.com/digital-stamps/cat_95.html

I've used 3 images from their Woodland Critters set for my card.


I like the simpleness of this one!  I printed the image and sentiment on the card base and images only a second time on scrap paper before coloring and hand cutting them out.  A little fun bling from Studio Katia and it's all done!  Well, the outside is, anyway.  Inside is a Congratulations stamp.

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you'll come join us!

A Shiny Mandela Flower

Good morning!  We start another fun challenge today over at Tuesday Throwdown!  Our theme is Glimmer and Shine. This week we have a new sponsor, and I love their stuff!  
Studio Katia has beautiful stamps and embellishments!  Today I have a fun card to share using their Mandela Flower stamp for the image, the sentiment is from their Blooming Bunch set, the bling is from their Crystal Rainbow Confetti and Crystal Rainbow Fusion.  (I tried to use all the colors included in the bling sets.  They're so fun!)

.  This picture doesn't do the colors justice.


I colored the image with Spectrum Noir pencils and added a strip of shimmery yellow ribbon.  The lavender mat is glitter cardstock, for just a little more shine!

Now, who doesn't want to play with bling this week?!?  Get to sparkling and come join us!

A Rainbow Zebra

Hello!  Today is another new challenge at Tuesday Throwdown.  We are sponsored this week by "Your Next Stamp" and they have the cutest stamps!


I've used their stamp set "Jungle Critters 2" for my card:


I've stamped the zebra 3 times.  The first layer is on the card base, the second and third were on a separate piece of scrap and I've hand cut them out, the third layer is just his face and both layers are mounted with pop dots so he really stands out with some dimension.  He's colored with Spectrum Noir markers.

The sentiment stamp is part of the set and the little dots are sparkly Gumdrops available from our sponsor.   

Thanks for stopping by and I sure hope you'll join us at Tuesday Throwdown!
