My Creative Time - Designer Challenge

Here is my creation for the My Creative Time Designer Challenge.
The challenge is hosted by Shar and she chose a color challenge with the additional challenge of including three flowers on the project.

I had the perfect 6x6 paper pad for this color challenge: Buttercup by LilyBeeDesign.
All of the patterned paper used was with this paper pad.
The flower, leaves, & chevron border was cut using the Close To My Heart Artiste Cricut Cartridge:
Feature Button: Accent 2 <Shift> - Button 24, cut at 3.5
The border is a tag welded together using my Gypsy.
Accent 4 - Button 27, cut at 5.5
The leaves can be found on Accent 3 <Shift> - Button 2, cut at 1.25
To finish my card I used a My Creative Time Die (Curly Label Die) and Stamp Set (Many Greetings)
Side view to show the dimension

So that's it from me...hope you enjoyed! :)

I am also linking this project to Pink Cricut's Link up Tuesday.

My Creative Time - Challenge

I am entering this card in My Creative Time's Challenge.  Emma from My Creative Time has a member of her Design Team pick the Challenge...this week the Challenge host is Tracy.  Tracy's challenge is to use googly eyes on our project.
I just love using googly eyes especially with the Mini Monster's Cricut Cartridge.
It was tough to choose just one monster, but I wanted to use My Creative Time's Small Talk stamp set, so I chose this guy as I thought he fit just perfect in the box.
He is Button 3 on the overlay and cut at 2.5.
To complete him I also used Feature Buttons: Layer 1 and Layer 2.
I then added the googly eyes, which makes him look just perfect! :)
The spider is from Happy Hauntings Cricut Cartridge.
He can be found on Button 27 <Shift>, cut at 1.71.
The Small Talk stamp set has a 2.75 x 2.75 dotted frame with a spot left open for 18 different coordinating sentiments to choose from. For this card of course I chose the Boo! sentiment...soo cute!
I then inked one side of the dotted frame to continue the line down so the frame
looks like the spider's web.  I really love how it turned out.
To finish up my card I added black ribbon and doodled some dots around the orange paper.
I hope everyone has a great week...thanks for stopping by,

Master Crafter Challenge hosted by Pink Cricut

I am so excited to be one of the participants in this challenge hosted by Sarah at Pink Cricut
There are 100 participants who each got a box with the following items:
Scissor Mouse sponsored by Westcott ,
DCWV Rockstar mat stack sponsored by DCWV Deals,
Cotton Bag Sponsored by State line Bag Co. ,
1/2 sheet of Rhinestones sponsored by Queen & Co.,
Sentiment stamp sponsored by Pink by Design,
Assorted Buttons.

The participants were asked to incorporate as much from their goodies as they could in creating their project.

So here is what I came up with:
With the Holiday's coming up I wanted to make an inexpensive homemade gift with the Cotton Bag provided...so I made a Pedicure in a Bag.  My bag and card are Birthday themed but this can easily be made into a Christmas theme as well.
Since this is a pediure in a bag I just couldn't resist using Pink by Design's Shoe Addict stamp set.
The sentiment is hard to read, but it says "Have a Glamorous Birthday"
I love how easy it was to stamp and color on this bag.
I also added some Iron on Vinyl that I had in my stash...this was cut using my Cricut.
CTMH Artiste Cartridge - Accent 1 <Shift>, Button 1 cut at .96.
To finish off the bag, I of course had to add some bling. 
I did this with the Queen & Co Rhinestones 
from my Mystery Box.
Inside my bag I included a Buffer, Nail File, Nail Clippers, Cuticle Pushers (which can all be purchased at the Dollar Tree) and Jamberry Nail Shields.
With a set of the nail shields cut in half they fit in the bag just perfect and my gift costs under $15!

For my A2 (4.25x5.5) card I used paper from the DCWV Rockstar Mat Stack and the Queen & Co Rhinestones provided in my Mystery Box.
The sentiment is another Pink by Design stamp set called Illuminate.
I just love this sentiment and think it goes perfectly with the bag!
For all of my Cricut Cuts I used the CTMH Artiste Cartridge.
Cuts on the Card:
The cut with the heart paper is on Feature Accent 4 <Shift>, Button # 31, cut at 3.75.
The Dress Form is on Feature Accent 1, Button # 11, cut at 3.0.
Then the top layer is the same button and size with Feature Accent 1 <Shift>
Well that's it from me. 
I can't wait to see what everyone creates!
Thanks for stopping by,
