"Jumping for Joy" ...

Had this little cutie cut out from the Cricut Recess cartridge for a while and finally finished up the card for Creative Time Emma's "Throwback Thursday Challenge".

Here are the details for this challenge:
*** This challenge is a SPORTS CHALLENGE! Use any sports cartridge you have & if you don't own any sports theme carts, just use anything you have & just make sure it has something to do w/sports!:)

My eighth grade daughter was the inspiration for this card ... her school colors are red & white.  "Go Lions!"  The card is 4.25 x 5.5 inches and the little cheerleader is cut at 3.5 inches and stamped with Peachy Keen's "Wide eyed kids" face stamp.  I used My Creative Time's "Anyday Bingo & Crossword" stamp set for the little "S" on her uniform and the "Just a Little Note to Say ... " stamp set for the sentiment.  

- Cricut "Recess" cartridge (cheerleader) 3.5 inches
- My Creative Time stamps
- Peachy Keen stamps (Wide eyed kids face assortment)
- October Afternoon (printed paper)
- Paper Trey Ink / Stampin Up (cardstock)
- crinkle ribbon (etsy)

Can't wait for Miss Emma's new stamp release on Friday ... hope my paycheck is extra-big this week!

Scrappy Moms "Looney" Terrific Tuesday Challenge

Took a crafting hiatus for a while but I'm definitely back at it now and eager to do lots of creating in 2012.

Scrappy Moms' Terrific Tuesday challenge is to make a project using a cartoon character.  I chose Thumper (although I think Thumper is a boy and there is A LOT of pink here) from Cricut's "Disney Classics" cartridge and printed and cut it out on my Imagine.  I paired it with the stamp set from Scrappy Moms called "Furry Friends" for the sentiment.  The scalloped card is from Cricut's "Elegant Edges" and welded together on my Gypsy.  The printed paper is Basic Grey "Perhaps" and I used Liquid Pearls in "petal" for the little pearly dots along the scallops.  The little label is from My Creative Time and the embossing powder and ribbon were from Michael's.  

- Cricut "Disney Classics" cartridge (Thumper) 3.9 inches
- Cricut "Elegant Edges" cartridge (scalloped card base)
- Basic Grey (printed paper)
- Scrappy Moms stamps (sentiment)
- My Creative Time (label die)
- Michael's (ribbon & embossing powder)
- Liquid Pearls (petal)
