It is time for another fun challenge at My Sheri Crafts! Challenge 88 is "Oh I Love America!" With Independence Day fast approaching, our design team sister Sarah asked us to make Patriotic cards/projects or use the Red/White/Blue theme! We are happy to welcome Ann Marie as our guest designer this challenge. Be sure to check out her gorgeous work!

My card measures 5"x 6 1/2". Again, I was able to use papers from my scrap stash.
Cricut Cartridge:
Phrases - Page 55. Phrase 2 cut 3". Phrase 2 Layer for the stars cut 3".
Cuttlebug: Polka Dots
Other supplies:
Phrase is pop-dotted on card. Versa Magic Gingerbread ink.
3 Girl JAM - Crinkle Ribbon Red, White, & Blue bundle. I just received this bundle and thought the red and blue ribbons would add a great finishing look to my card!

BBTB2 - Birthday and Pearls

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Happy Monday! It is time for another fun challenge at BBTB2! Our talented design team sister Stephanie is the hostess this week and she chose the theme Birthday and Pearls!
Many of the Cricut cartridges have a card feature with pretty and unique shapes. I chose to use a card feature for the base of my card for this challenge. Papers are K&Company double-sided papers which work really well for the card feature.
Cricut Cartridges:
Damask Decor - Page 64 - Gift. Using the Card Feature on shift, the image is cut at 5" for the card base. Card feature without shift is cut using another patterned paper for the top of the card.The gift shaped card will be a nice birthday card!
Wild Card - Page 61 - Phrase Happy Birthday is cut 6.5". This sentiment is seen inside the card. A personal message could be written on a mat and placed on left side of card.
Other supplies:
Seems like I am on a rosette kick lately! I wanted to dress up the front of the card and I found this small rosette which was too small for a prior project. It is made from papers from the same paper pack. Love these double sided papers because they coordinate so well! The rosette is cut 3/4" and measures 1 1/2" finished. I hand cut a small banner to place under the rosette.
Pearls are from my stash. Inking is Versa Magic Gingerbread.

 Be sure to stop by BBTB2 and see the beautiful and inspiring projects made by the talented ladies for this challenge. For more details on the projects, please visit the individual blogs and leave some love! We appreciate your visits and comments!
Now it is your turn to play along with us. We want to see Birthday cards and Pearls! Remember BBTB2 is a Cricut challenge and you must use a Cricut cut on your project and you must mention in your blogpost which Cricut cartridge you used.

Your comments are appreciated!

Just Rite color challenge

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Thanks for stopping by today! Today's card is inspired by the Just Rite Challenge # 075 - Color Challenge of Aqua, Apricot, and Orange. When I saw the colors for the challenge and the design team's pretty and inspirational work, I thought of some K&Company double-sided papers that I have had for a long time. Sometimes a friend and I will buy paper pads and divide the papers. These are such papers and I do not know the name of this particular K&Company pad. These are not colors that I normally use, but I enjoyed working with the papers and colors for the challenge!
Card is 5" x 6 1/2" brown cardstock and is layered with a patterned 5" X 6 1/2" designer paper. The design is a play with one of the sketches from June 2012 PageMaps.
I know you are seeing a lot of rosettes on my projects lately but I enjoy making rosettes. The designer paper is cut 1" and scored at each 1/4". An aqua blue brad is placed in the middle and then I added the rhinestone for a bit of bling!

Cricut Cartridge: Lovely Floral - Butterfly cut 1.75". Stickles used on the butterfly for a little bling. Would you believe I could not find the appropriate size rhinestones in my stash!
Just Rite - Friendship Nested Sentiments. Yay! I received a few more stamps!
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Class Scalloped Rectangles Largest used on the mats and third largest used on the sentiment mat.
Spellbinders M-Bossabilities - Splendid Design B
Trims are from a friend! Thanks so much Charlotte. I enjoyed working with the pretty trims on the card!
Other supplies include aqua rhinestones and Versa Magic Gingerbread inking. The Sentiment mat and butterfly are pop-dotted.

Be sure to visit Just Rite challenge blog and see all the great inspiration by the design team. You have until Wednesday June 27 at 6:00 P.M. Central to enter your project!
