Gypsy Made Simple Challenge

Happy Sunday Yall! I hope you all are having a wonderful, peaceful Sunday. I am all alone today. Brandon is in Jersey, so I decided to sit at my desk and work for a bit. I decided to go ahead and make my card for the current 'Gypsy Made Simple' challenge over at She's A Sassy Lady. This week Sheila showed us how to use our Cricut Gypsy to make a shaker card.
So I pulled out Esmerelda (my Gypsy...yes, I named her! LOL) and designed this card last night while watching football. I used the following Cricut Cartridges:
1. Give A Hoot
2. Gypsy Wanderings
3. Plantin' Schoolbook
I have a thing for peacocks, as many of you know, so I incorporated the peacock from 'Give A Hoot' into this card. For my 'shaker action,' I decided to use some dew drops from The Robin's Nest. This card was so fun and easy to make! I love picking it up and giving it a shake while doing a little dance. I'm glad I am by myself today because Brandon would probably look at me like I was crazy when I start dancing with my shaker card! ROFL! I also used some pearls from Queen & Company and Stickles glitter glue on the sentiment. All patterned paper is from My Mind's Eye. Cardstock is from The Paper Studio and Core'dinations. Of course, I pulled out my favorite Helmar Adhesives to pull the project together. I used the Helmar Quick Fix Adhesive Runner, Helmar 450 Quick Dry Adhesive, and Helmar Zap Dots. I'm thinking this type of card would make a great tutorial using my Helmar...stay tuned...the wheels are already turning in my head! LOL

"Happy Birthday"
 Up close of my peacock and sentiment. This patterned paper is glittery. I hope you can tell. I really loved it!
 I shook the card up and layed it down flat so you can see the dew drops that are inside.
 Inside of my card. I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page punch set on the blue piece of paper.
That's it for me today! I'm off to clean up my mess and chill. I need to be giving my house a deep clean, but I'm thinking I'll put it off until Wednesday. Tee Hee!

Happy Scrappin'!
Pin It!
