His & Her's

Hey y'all! Happy Monday! Checking in here with you on this rainy day...well it is rainy here in PA. We have had rain all weekend and it has gotten a little chilly! Brrr! But, the rain provided the perfect excuse for me to stay in and work at my scrapbooking desk. I was able to create 2 cards during the rain that I would like to share with you today. I created cards for 'him' and for 'her.' I am always needing a mix of cards for both women and men in my card stash, so I am glad I got these finished.

First up, I have a masculine card. I thought I would give this to my husband one day for a 'just because' sort of thing. I like to leave cards around for him for no special reason. I sometimes sneak them in his lunchbox before he heads to work, in his truck, on his pillow before bed, etc. It's just a little something sweet I like to do to always remind him that I love him. He seems to enjoy it too. Tee hee!

"You're Out Of This World"

Supplies Used
Cardstock: The Paper Studio, Core'dinations, The Paper Company
Patterned Paper: Studio Calico
Rhinestones: Michael's
Glitter Glue: Stickles (Ranger Industries)
Stamp: My Craft Spot
Ink: Stampin' Up!
Electronic Cutter: Cricut Expression (Provo Craft)
Software: Cricut Gypsy
Cartridge Used: Birthday Cakes
Adhesive: Helmar, Beacon Adhesives

I found this cute robot and the gears on the Cricut Birthday Cake cartridge. I used my Gypsy to weld the shadow of each shape together to create a shaped card.
 I added rhinestones for dimension and a bit of glitter glue to a few of the gears. Also, I used pop dots to pop up the top layer of the robot just for that extra layering effect.
 I used a stamp from My Craft Spot for the inside of the card.
 After finishing  the card for 'him,' I got to work on a card for 'her.' I thought I might send this to my Dad so that he will have a card for my Mom sometime. I thought it would be a nice everyday card or for anniversary/Valentine's Day.

"Sweetheart, My Heart Belongs To You"

Patterned Paper: Urban Lily, Jillibean Soup, Momenta
Rhinestones: Michael's
Pearls: Queen & Co.
Pin: Jenni Bowlin Studio

This shaped card is from the Wild Card cartridge. It is one of my favorite Cricut shapes!
 I wanted to mention too that this card is a scraplifted idea...sort of. LOL. I was on Pinterest the other day looking up pink/zebra print things. As many of you know, I have a daughter (a Yorkshire Terrier named Katie Scarlett) that I love to pamper. I am already planning her first birthday party and it will be in a pink/zebra print theme. I came across this awesome chocolate dipped strawberry. Doesn't this look yummy? I adore the colors, the patterns, everything!
 My strawberry is from the Create With Flourish Cricut cartridge.
 I added a twine bow and some rhinestones to the strawberry.
 I used crinkle ribbon to tie a bow on the edge. I then added a pin for a little extra detail.
 I popped up the strawberry using pop dots.
 For the inside, I added more patterned paper and stamps from My Craft Spot.
I hope you have enjoyed these 2 cards and that they will inspire you to create!

Happy Scrappin'!!!
Pin It!
