Stand Out Saturday 33-2019

3D cards are some of my favorites to make.  I have wanted to make more shaker cards and decided that would be my card for this challenge.

Sometimes the Dollar Tree can provide materials for crafting.  I had picked up a whole pack of 4 x 6 colored craft foam sheets that contained several primary colors.  I used the red to cut the outline of the apple and used two layers since they were fairly thin.  The Cricut cut it easily.  I used two cartridges for the apple since I didn't like the leaves with the apple I wanted to use.  The slice feature let me make the outline I needed for the foam and also the red paper to cover the foam and plastic cover.  The background paper is Authentique's Homestead 6 x 6 pad.  Two sized of sequins filled the inside. The paper was double sided and I used the other side of the same paper to stamp the sentiment on. It is from a Unity set called Cuddlebug Penguin. - Denise

Color Me Friday 33-2019

Our colors for this month are red, yellow, and black.  A  8 x 8 Graphic 45 pad called Home Sweet Home was out for another project and had three patterns in red and yellow that I thought would work well with one of the quilt die I used on Monday.  It is called Flower Burst by Gina Marie Designs.

I love how you can cut four papers (three patterns and one solid) and make four different cards. I back the cardstock with Scrappy Tape that is on a roll 5inches x 30 yards. I cut it to the length I need and put the sticky side on the back of the paper.  It can then run through the die cut machine (it works with both my Cuttlebug and Cricut and that allows you to peel off the back and stick the various parts directly to the card base.. The sentiments are from a stamp set called Material Girl, but I don't remember who the manufacturer was. I wish making a real quilt was this easy, lol. - Denise

Inspiration Thursday 33-2019

Inspiration came from this image.

I liked the look of writing on a chalk board and came up with this card.

I have a whole paper pack from DCWV called chalkboard which has a great texture to it.  American Craft Galaxy Markers will not only write on this type of surface, but will fit into the pen holder of the Cricut Explore.  A search on Pinterest provided the quote.   The red marker proved to be more pink than red, but it still looked good.  The black was mounted on a yellow mat and placed on a white card base. - Denise
