Happy 4th of July!

Just received Scrappy Moms "Yankee Doodle Dandy" stamp set and the sentiments are soooo perfect for my 4th of July cards.  Decided to try them out with cards for my little niece and nephew.  

I used the "Cricut Decals" cart on my new Expression 2.  I cut each of the patterns at 3.5 inches, but had to change the eyes a little as the eyes just shred when cutting ... they are so small.  I added Action Wobbles to the little girl and boy so they are "waving" their little sparkler and flag around!  Hope they like them!

- Cricut Decals cartridge
- Scrappy Moms Stamps (Yankee Doodle Dandy) - sentiments
- DCWV printed paper
- Paper Trey Ink card stock

Mr. Pink's Photo Inspiration Challenge

Pink By Design's "Mr. Pink" has a GREAT challenge going on right now ... Create a project, card, layout or something else that is inspired by the picture below ...

I must say, Mr. Pink has great taste in photos .... wish I could jump in there right now and grab a tasty daiquiri.  I chose to create a card using Pink By Design's "Summer Vacation" stamp set for my sentiment.  It is definitely one of my favorite sets I have of Sarah's.   I used the Pack Your Bags cartridge for the beach scene and the SpongeBob Squarepants for the tiki frame.  The printed paper is from Bella Blvd.

"Lotso" Birthday Hugs

My Pink Stamper Color Challenge

Robyn is hosting a challenge over at "My Pink Stamper" using the colors orange, turquoise and green.  Wanted to create something summery and had the perfect paper in my stash.  Used "Everyday Life" stamp set from My Pink Stamper for the "Enjoy" sentiment.

Don't Worry ... be happy!

This was a really fun card to make for Emma's Throwback Thursday Challenge at My Creative Time.  I have been wanting to use this cute little girl on a card for quite some time and this was just the push I needed.  Emma's adorable sentiment stamp is just perfect for this ... from her "Turn That Frown Upside Down" set.

The challenge involved using any of the Lite cartridges and some form of "bling".  I chose the Playtime cart for the little ice cream girl and Twinkle toes for the frame shape.  Of course, she needed a Peachy Keen face to go with it!  I used Glossy Accents for the little tear in her eye and the ice cream scoops.

- Playtime cartridge (girl)
- Twinkle Toes cartridge (frame)
- Cuttlebug embossing folder "Polka Dots"
- My Creative Time "Turn That Frown Upside Down" sentiment
- Peachy Keen Stamps (Wide Eyed Kids Assortment)
