Action Wobble Time! April 26, 2014


I know you have seen them on cups, shirts, sheets, signs and people. Well, you are seeing them here now too! I did a super-quick, super-easy card for any random occasion. And it's dude-friendly!

Give it a little jiggle and moustache will wiggle!

The inside is just as corny.

I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the base of the front using the Braggadocio Font, and a moustache file from the online store. The moustache is mounted with an Action Wobble (see the info on them below).

I moustache you....did you like it? lol

Sketch~N~Scrap Card #24

Some Steampunk Just For You!

The blend of the Sketch~N~Scrap card sketch and our sponsor, Creative Embellishments brought together a steampunk inspired birthday card. I love the look of steampunk, but admittedly haven't dabbled with it too much. So there's no time like the present!

Here is the sketch:

My take:

I embossed soem kraft cardstock using two different embossing folders and lightly inked the raised images. I used some twine as my center. But the highlight of this card is definitely the gears. Here is how they started out:

Nice, sturdy chipboard. So how did I get such richness? Super simple. Embossing powder. I chose gold, silver, bronze and black. You just rub Versamark on the embellishment and cover it with the embossing powder and heat. They turned out stunning!

I glued them together and attached them to my card. They made a beautiful focal point.

Here is the inside of the my card:

I hope you enjoyed my project! Now, head over to Sketch~N~Scrap and get all the details on playing along. You could even win a $20 gift certificate to Creative Embellishments!

Action Wobbles Friday Post

Shello Friends!!!

It's that time again for my Friday post over at Action Wobbles! I put together a really cute wobble card to share with you.

I wanted something simple, and this came together so quickly. Kraft cardstock, a computer generated sentiment, a couple of stickers and an Action Wobble! What could be simpler?

 This is a great masculine card! Cute without being too "girly". The sentiment was printed then cut with some decorative scissors, and the edges were inked with distress ink.

The crab was attached with an Action Wobble to give it that wow factor!

Super simple, super cute!

Thanks for letting me share with you today. Here are some handy links for you:

FCCB #205 - Spring Cleaning

Happy Spring!

 Happy Monday and welcome to another Monday challenge!

Challenge #205 Spring Cleaning

This Weeks Sponsor

~Design Team Inspiration~
~This Weeks Challenge~
Spring Cleaning
Create a project using a cartridge or cut you have never used before.

To qualify for the prize, be sure to use at least 1 Cricut cut on your project
and if it's not obvious, let us know what cartridge you used.

Here is my card for the week:

Toodle Noodle Creative:

This is truly a KISS card (Keep It Simply, Sweetie)! For such a quick card to put together, it sure does have an impact. 

I cut the old-fashioned telephone using the Heritage Cartridge. I've had this cart for a while, always fond of a lot of the images, but admittedly have not used it much. When I came across the telephone, it spoke to me (pun intended!). The background stamp is from Mark's Finest Papers & Stamps. It's from the set "Cracked Hello", as is the sentiment. The inserts on the buttons are simply very thin strips of matching cardstock threaded through the holes...MUCH easier than using thread!

I did not finish the inside of this card other than a piece of kraft cardstock. It's another one of those cards that can be customized for pretty much any occasion, or even just a simple note.

Hope you enjoyed this card and are inspired to play along with us at FCCB. You will find tons of ideas and inspiration there!

First April Post for Sketch~N~Scrap


I have a nautical card to share with you today, based on a sketch by Kelly Holifield. Here is the sketch:

And here is my project:

I made a shaker element using vinyl foam weather seal. Yup, weather stripping. I wanted something that would be flexible. This was a little sticky to work with, but the end result was that it worked fine. I started cutting out the frame using some Spellbinders dies.

I stamped and embossed my image, then added the washi tape. I then adhered the stripping around the center that was cut out of my frame.

I added some sand and tiny rocks and placed an oval cut of acetate on top.

I then added the frame, stamped my sentiment, and added some baker's twine.

The weather stripping gives enough height to accommodate a generous amount of "stuff".

Hope you enjoyed my card and are inspired to play along with our sketches over at Sketch~N~Scrap. Head there now and you will find lots of ideas and inspiration. Our sponsor this month is Creative Embellishments. You could even with a $20 gift certificate! Go! Now! Play!
