St. Patrick's Day Card

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Here it is March already and I have a St. Patrick's Day card to share with you. I am playing with the sketch challenge at Tuesday Morning Sketches. I like the sketch and think it is a good way to use paper from my stash. That stack keeps growing! I think the St. Patrick's Day paper is pretty with the lavender and purples. This is a piece left over from another project that I will share soon with you. Green and Lavender papers are scraps from a Pearlescent paper pack.
Card is 5" x 6 1/2" cut from green cardstock.
Cricut Cartridge:
A Child's Year - Page 31 Hat is the Icon feature and is cut 2". Hat is applied to an Acton Wobble so it has a fun movement about it!
Polka Dots Folder is used on the 4 3/4" x 6 1/4" white background paper.
Lots of inking and Recollection green gemstones.

Hope you enjoy my card. It is simple but I think one of the grandkids will enjoy the Acton Wobble Hat!

Red Hat Lady 3-D Shoe

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! I recently purchased Cricut Princess Party cartridge and of course, my first project has to be a Red Hat Lady theme! The shoe is one of the reasons that I wanted the cartridge but several other cuts will work in a Red Hat theme!
Working in the Cricut Craft Room, I cut the shoe at 7 1/2" which is the largest size that would fit on the 12x12 paper. Paper is Bazzill Ruby Slipper--just love that name for the paper!!

The circle for the fabric yoyo had been cut some time back and I stitched it up to use on my shoe. Finished size measures 1 1/2". I glued one of my Red Hat buttons in the center of the yoyo and added a purple feather under the yoyo. Other supplies include Purple fabric trim, Recollections Floral Embellishments, gemstones, and pop dots. The "Friends" and button embellishments are from Dress It Up Friends button package. Red Hatters must have their feathers and bling!

Close up view of front of the shoe.

This was a fun project and went together really well. Next time, I may cut an extra paper using the shoe image so the shoe can be lined with a different patterned paper.
Hope you enjoy!

Fantabulous Cricut Ch. 100 - FCCB Color Challenge

Welcome To Glenda's Cards! Thank you for stopping by today!

Hope each of you had a great weekend! Time again for another fun challenge at Fantabulous Cricut! This week we are celebrating the 100th challenge! Wow! How exciting and Congratulations! Challenge 100 is Color Challenge - Use the 3 colors associated with FCCB - Green, Purple and Turquoise. How fitting is that!!
I am so excited to be participating in this 100th challenge and yet it is a bit sad for me because this is my last challenge as a design team member. I have had so much fun working with Robin, Amy Jo, and the talented designers for the past few months. I want to express my appreciation to Robin for allowing me 2 wonderful and fun terms at FCCB! Congratulations to the returning designers and to the new design team members!

Now to my card! I started with a 8 1/2" x 11" white cardstock and folded it in half to make a 8 1/2" x 5 1/2" card. Going through my stash of paper, I came across this pretty crafting theme paper that I thought would work good for the challenge. All the solid papers were in my stash also.

Cricut Cartridges: Working in the Cricut Craft Room
Nate's ABC's - Page 69 - Scissors cut 1.75". Page 70 - Glue cut at 1.75".
Simply Charmed - Page 54 - Word feature for "Craft Day" cut at 1.569" w x 1.375" h.
Plantin Schoolbook - Letters and shadows cut .75".

Cuttlebug: Hearts folder for the white mat. I wanted to create more focus on the hearts in the designer paper and also my love for crafting!
Martha Stewart - Butterfly Pop-Up Edge Punch. Designer paper has such pretty butterflies and I had to cover most of them up! I used some of the punched out butterflies on the white mat.
Other supplies include inking, rhinestones, pop dots, and buttons with bows made of DMC Memory Thread.

Now it is your turn to play along with us at Fantabulous Cricut. Please visit the blog to see all the creative projects by the design team. I am sure you will be inspired to play along with our color challenge. Remember you must use Green, Purple, and Turquoise plus a Cricut cut on your project!

I want to thank my blogging friends for all the support and friendships made while I have been serving on the  design team! The motto on the FCCB blog states, "Share, Create, and Inspire". You may notice on the designer paper on my card the words inspire and create. I love that piece of paper! I hope the projects that I have created and shared with you have been inspiring! I know I had a Fantabulous time!!
Best wishes to all at FCCB!

Thank you for your comments! I enjoy reading each one!
