Card Creatin' Tuesday

Happy Tuesday!!! How are all of you fabulous crafters today? I hope you are enjoying a great week so far! I am so happy today because I finally got back to my scrappy studio and created some cards. I took like 5 days off because I just wasn't having any mojo. I didn't feel creative at all. But this morning I woke up refreshed and was ready go go! So, I decided to make a few cards for some challenges.

This card is a 'window' card. I created this with the use of my Cricut Gypsy after watching THIS fabulous tutorial from 'She's A Sassylady.' I know I have mentioned it before, but I LOVE Sheila's tutorials! They really have helped me to learn so much about my Gypsy and help me to stay creating. You must hop on over and check out her tutorials if you are a new Gypsy owner like me.

For this card, I used only the 'Gypsy Wanderings' cartridge that comes pre-loaded on the Gypsy. I love this cartridge! It is so whimsical and just perfect for my tastes. I have used this 'Thanks' word cut several times. For this project, I did use 'new to me' cut from the cartridge...the owl. I jazzed her up a tad with some glitter glue, bling, and you know I had to add a little bow. Of course, my trusty Helmar Adhesives helped to bring the whole card together. Yall know how I adore my Helmar!

Cardstock: Bazzill Basics Paper
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries)
Rhinestones: Queen & Co
Ribbon: K & Company
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Cartridge: Gypsy Wanderings (Provo Craft)
Software: Gypsy (Provo Craft)
 I love the little flourish that all of the images on 'Gypsy Wanderings' has. It really adds to the cut.
 I popped my owl up using some Helmar Zap Dots.
 Next up, I decided to play along with our current challenge on the 'Gyspy Chat' section of the Cricut Community. You know I love these challenges! If you have a Gypsy, you MUST come on over and join us! There is an awesome prize up for grabs!!!! Go HERE if you are interested in that.

The specs of this weeks challenge are to:
1. Make ANY project using a cut that has LAYERS...that's it. Super simple!

For my card, I used several cuts that have layers. I cut my card base from the 'Wild Card' cartridge. It has a solid base and then a top layer that has a curly looking window for the card front. I then turned to a new cartridge that Mom and I picked up, 'Wall Decor' & More', and cut the rooster and the rooster border with that. Last, I layered the sentiment (Thanks) using the 'Mini Monograms' cartridge. I had so much fun making this card! I love roosters! I want some rooster dishes so bad to put out on  my table. I thought of my Aunt Kay when I made this card because she has some beautiful rooster pieces in her home. So I may just have to send this to her some time.
