Ms. Claus Sewing

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Hope you had a Happy Thanksgiving! Now my thoughts turn to Christmas decorating and making cards! This card measures 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" and is cut from Recollections red cardstock. Patterned papers are from my scrap stash. I am playing with the fun Sketch 10 from Mary at CARDZ TV.

Cricut Cartridges:
Santa's Village -  Mrs. Claus Sewing is cut 1.62" wide x 2.5" high. This cartridge is one of the print and cut cartridges...love these images!
Using the Insert Images, I added a circle that is cut 2.75". I added a square and changed it to a 2.25" wide x 2" high rectangle. Two were cut at this size.
Cuttlebug:
Script folder was used on the circle. Kassie's Brocade was used on the two rectangles. I like the looks of the embossing.
Sentiment Merry Christmas is from Mary's CARDZ TV Home for Christmas stamp set. Crinkle ribbon bow is from Karen at Little Scraps Pieces.  Thanks to both ladies for my wins.

My Sheri's Crafts - Ch. 195 Winter

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today begins a new challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Design team sister Sue is hostess of  Challenge 195 - Winter. She asks that we create a project that has anything to do with Winter: Christmas, snow, hot chocolate, etc. 

Some time back, I was lucky to win a SVG certificate from FCCB sponsored by The Dreaming Tree. So many pretty SVG files are available on the site and it took me awhile to choose. I chose the lovely Christmas Bendi Cards SVG bundle. As it was a Christmas selection, I am just now playing with the file. This is also my first try with a Bendi card. I love the image and how great it all went together. I used black for the Santa sleigh against the snowflake background paper that I had chosen. I used sizes as given in the instructions. I am really pleased with the results! Many thanks to FCCB and The Dreaming Tree

Visit My Sheri Crafts to see the pretty designs by the talented design team. For more information and details, visit our indivdual blogs. 

Now it is your turn to play along with us. We look forward to seeing your pretty projects!

Decorated Christmas Plate

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

After seeing the pretty intricate images from a recently added cartridge in Cricut Design Space, I went shopping for a red charger. This one was bought at WalMart.

Cricut cartridge:
Intricate Seasonal Art - Let's Be Jolly is cut 7" wide x 6.44" high. The three layers of the image are cut from red, green, and white vinyl. The vinyl is from CraftEVinyl. Intricate is definitely the word for these images. I  was weeding for quite some time but I finally got it applied to the plate. 

I like the results and will be using the plate in my Christmas decorating.
