A Scraphappy Southernbelle

Friday, December 5, 2008

Hey yall! Well, I've been cardmaking all day today. I started out to do some challenges for the various scrapbook message boards I do, but ended up doing cards. Isn't that funny? I was just itchin' to play with two of the newer Cricut carts I have: Home Decor and Wild Card. Wild Card is actually my mom's. She loaned it to me, but now I must say, I gotta have it! It is awesome! Not only can you make too cute cards, but all the features on there! It's great! So, on to the cards I made today. I scanned all of these since the camera is dead, so maybe you can tell.

This is the first card I did. I used the Home Decor cart for the chandelier and the word 'adore.' I also used the Cuttlebug Mosaic embossing folder and some distress ink. Last, some stickles for bling.

The inside of the card:

"Happy Birthday"
Ok, this one looks SO much better in person. I used the Home Decor cart for the cool looking cupcake. The paper behind it is light blue metallic paper that I embossed with the Cuttlebug Music Notes folder, but when the scanner scanned it, you can see what it did. Sorry for that part. I also added some stickles to the frosting.

The inside of the card:

"Love Birds"
I also used the Home Decor cart for this one. I cut out these cute little birds. Aren't they too cute? I love them! They remind me of one of my fave birds...a peacock. I stickled them in different colors. I also cut out the word 'love.' Then, I used a Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch.

"Gingerbread House"

Ok, next, I decided to play with the Wild Card cart. This cart is so cool! You can cut these cute little shaped cards and then coordinating envie's! LOVE IT!!! This first card is a cute little house. I decided since Christmas time is here, I would make my house a 'gingerbread house.' The coordinating envie is a door. How cute! The envie is on the left and the card is on the right. Also, on the card, the little door actually opens! If you open the door, you are greeted by a cute little gingerbread man! Ok, I'm gigglin here! I have to tell yall...I was gigglin the whole time I did these Wild Card one's. Too much fun! Ha ha!

"Hoooope You Have A Very Merry Christmas"

Ok, I saved my favorite for last! Oh, I wish yall could see this one in person. It is just too darn cute! I mean cute!!!! I LOVE it! Did I meantion that? I love it! This first pic is of the owl shaped card. Yall know how I love any birds, but especially owls. So this was right up my alley! This was so easy and quick to pull together too. Gotta love that! All I did to the owl to jazz him up a bit was to use distress ink and some stickles. So here is the owl card up close:

Then here is the cute little envie that goes with! Now yall tell me if that envie isn't too cute! It folds up into the tree! I think it is too darlin'!

Then I scanned this so you could kind of see how the envie opens up to reveal the card. Hope you can get a better visual of it:

Ok, that is all for me today. I had so much fun making all these cards. I appreciate you stopping by and let me know what you think if you want to! I would love to hear from ya! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend so far. See you tomorrow! Hugs!
Pin It!

I LOVE the cards!!! I have make a gbread house too. You may have to come home early so we can have some time to play with that cart. Is that a good idea, or what!!!? I would love the see that house door open and the man inside. I know that is just too much. You did a great job as usual with your embellies on all the card projects.

Now for the owl. Having the card folded into the envie is great!!! I love those huge eyes.

I would love to see the cupcake card. The background is so shiny and eye-catching. Is the cupcake a cut-out or embossed? Either way, the recipient of this card will be thrilled as such a beautiful card.

Cant wait to see more work from the Wild Card cart.

Ooops!!! I forgot about the other two cards. Sowwy (Carter's version of sorry) I am diggin the birds too. That card is so cute. I knew you wanted to use that chandelier, and it turned out beautifully. It is a classy card.

I'm so glad you commented on the Wild card cartridge. I've been thinking about that one since I heard it was coming out this past summer. I'm happy to hear that it's good. I'm probably going to get it now.
