My Sheri Crafts - Ch. 80 Warm Wishes

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!
Happy Saturday everyone! It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 80 is Warm Wishes which is brought to you by design team member Sandy. With the weather being cold this time of the year, Sandy wants us to wish our friends warm thoughts and wishes. Some examples would be warm soup, baking, and hot cocoa! I chose to use a teapot for my project!
Cricut Cartridge:
Damask Decor - Page 61 Teapot card feature is cut at 5" using a pretty double-sided paper from K&Company! I used another co-ordinating paper from the same paper pad for the teapot layer which was cut at the same size. This card requires a larger size envelope. I was able to find an envelope in my stash that worked for mailing to my friend!

The rosette is 12" x 3/4" paper and is scored at each 1/4" using the Martha Stewart scoreboard. I found this pretty button in my stash and thought it would be perfect for the finishing touch on the rosette. The shank of the button was glued in the rosette opening.
The sentiment is a rub-on from my stash and is placed on a piece of vellum. Lots of inking and gold Stickles complete the look!

Be sure to visit My Sheri Crafts to see the lovely projects filled with "Warm Wishes" made by our guest designer and design team members. We love your visits and appreciate your comments! We look forward to seeing your projects. A guest designer will be chosen and several Ooh La La awards will be given!

Thank you for your visit and comments!

Hearts of Love

Welcome to Glenda's Cards

I have been so busy trying to finish Valentine cards that I have been unable to post before Valentine's Day. Today I am sharing the Valentine card made for my daughter! Card is 6 1/2" x 5" cut from white Colorbok cardstock. I saw a cute card sketch recently at CPS-Card Sketches that I wanted to try. I did not have time until now to try it so I missed the challenge. After adding extra embellishments, this is my play with the sketch.
Designer paper is K&Company Kelly Panacci Valentine paper pad. I have enjoyed working with this pretty double-sided paper for my Valentine cards this year. Guess who bought another pack of this pretty paper while it was available! You may be seeing more cards with these papers!

Cricut Cartridges:
Love Struck - Heart
Flower Shoppe - Flower
Ribbons and Rosettes - Page 35 - Heart border (White strip under the heart). I hand cut a piece of the red paper to place behind it.

I cut the small sentiment banner and stamped Happy Valentine's Day using a dollar stamp from Michael's. Red Heart gemstones were added. You can see a tutorial for the 3D Pop-up Sentiment Banner that Melanie shared at Fantabulous Cricut.

Ribbon is from my stash!

Shaped Valentine card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards! Thanks for stopping by today!

Happy Valentine's Day! Today I am sharing a Valentine card made using a card feature from a Cricut cartridge. I like the pretty shape of the card and the overlay cut with the heart opening.
Cricut Cartridges:
Life's a Party - Page 62  Card feature and the mat are cut at 5" using the Cricut Craft Room. I was so surprised to see this pretty card on this cartridge! I need to take a closer look at some of my cartridges!
For some reason, I was unable to hide the little fold lines on the card. However, the lines are only slightly noticeable after the mat was glued on.
Flower Shoppe - Flower -Second image on 4th row cut 1.75" and again at 1.50". First image on 1st row cut 1.75".
Home Decor - I sized the word "Love" to fit inside the heart and did not record the actual size.
I used Martha Stewart inking around the edges. Tiny Recollections pearls were placed around the heart opening.
White Colorbok cardstock was used for the card base. Designer Paper is K&Company Kelly Panacci Valentine. I love this paper and have been using a lot from this pad. Guess who bought another pad of this same paper this weekend!! I will hoard it for awhile!!
