Penny’s Paper-Crafty.

I was just welcomed as a new design team member at Penny’s Paper-Crafty.  Our sponsor this week is #Bugaboo Stamps.  I already own several of their digital stamps which are SO cute.  This is my first card for their design team so I used their  #Spring Elephant design.

I cut extra flowers and added them to the design.  The sun, clouds and 3 of the flowers are brads from #Eylet Outlet the sequins are from there as well.

I'm very excited about the new design team, it's a weekly challenge which will keep me busy along with the challenges at Fantabulous Cricut. 

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Star Stampz - Use a Digital or Stamped Image

Simply Papercraft - Anything Goes

Bicycling into Spring

I love my bicycle.  I really began to love riding in Italy.  Everyone rode their bikes there, the streets were set-up for safe riding.  

I haven't been able to ride as much here in America.  The streets are just not safe for riding here and our cities are so spread out.  It hasn't changed my love for riding though. And my first thought of Spring, is riding my bike again! 

I used the main bicycle image from Summer Celebrations Cricut cartridge and then cut pieces from another bicycle from Independence Day.  

The flowers in the basket are Paisley Flowers from Holiday Cakes Cartridge and Walk In My Garden.   

The background embossing is Darice embossing folder, Grass Silhouette.

I added the ribbons to mirror the ribbons on the bicycle, but I'm not sure I like them.  I think I prefer it without them.
I also added sequins and brads to some of the flower centers and 3 white brads for decor above the bike. 

I miss many things about Italy, but riding my bike everywhere is one of the biggest things I miss. 

PLEASE join us in our SPRING challenge at Fantabulous CricutChallenge #299-SpringMake a project about Spring.

This is my second shaker card, and I like making them, but they are not easy and they take a lot of material. This shaker card is a pedestal card. 

This cut from Spring and Summer Tablescapes, 

I cut 4 times for depth and
4 circles just an 1/8 of an inch wider for the backing.  Used the negative for the shaker example and the actual cut for the pedestal holder. 

I used this glittery brads from BoBunny on this Fancy Pants Easter paper.  I had a small pack of these white pom-poms that I added to the tail.  A package of sequins created the interior of the shaker card.  

The second part of this is the cut I used from Dreaming Tree called the Gerbera Daisy SVG cut.  I love it.  I'm going to add another post about it, but here is the picture.  Dreaming Tree has been a great sponsor of Fantabulous Cricut and has many free cuts, such as this votive daisy for use.  Give them a look - Dreaming Tree

 Thanks for looking.  Come join us at Fantabulous Cricut  for our Easter Challenge
