Welcome to the Neighborhood!

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

I had fun playing with my Cricut and building this cute little house. The card measures 5" x 6 1/2" cut from a lavender cardstock.
Cricut Cartridge is April Showers. The house is cut 5" from some leftover papers of a K&Company patterned paper pad. I added a small piece of vellum behind the windows and door.
Other supplies:
Martha Stewart Layered Arches edge punch is used on the white mat. 
Spellbinders MBossabilities Splendid embossing folder is used on the pale blue mat.
My Craft Spot - Friends and Neighbors Stamp was blog candy from Kimberly. Perfect sentiment for my little hand cut banner.
Crinkle ribbon is blog candy from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces.
Lots of inking and the purple gemstones are from my stash.

Simple Pleasures

Welcome to Glenda's Cards!

Today I am sharing a card that seems to be out of my color comfort zone. Most of you know that I love working with pinks, and of course, red and purple. However when I saw the weekly color challenge at  
The Shabby Tea Room, I was inspired to search for aqua and yellow papers.
My card measures 5" x 7" cut from white cardstock. Patterned papers are from paper pads that I have had for quite some time.
Cricut Cartridge
Country Life - Page 60 - Pitcher is cut 3". Pitcher is pop-dotted on the yellow mat. Phrase is cut 1.25"
Spellbinders - Nestabilities Eyelet Circles on the yellow dot paper
Martha Stewart Daisy Dot Edge Punch is used on the white layer.
Sew Easy Fancy floss - Baker's twine primary
Crinkle Ribbon from Karen at Little Scrap Pieces
Pearls and buttons from my stash and lots of inking complete the look.
