Tea-rrific March

The March Stamp of the Month - Tea-rrific (S1703 is not available.

Check out these projects I have created using it!


 On the left page, I used one of the images as my journalling box. On the right page, I fussy cut the cups that were stamped on printed paper and paper pieced them. (The left pages is inspired by the layout on page 24 of the Seasonal Expressions 1, with the right page created to coordinate).


For this card, I used my Cricut Explore and Design Space to cut the cup shape for the top of the card. I used it to create a shaker card using a Flip Flap to hold my sequins.

Shaker Cards

Just before Christmas I made a couple of shaker cards. Now I can't stop making them. I have used some of the Close To My Heart Thin Cuts to make some and my Cricut Explore to make others! Recently, friends became grandparents for the first time so I made a shaker card for them and some extras too.

I use the CTMH Flip Flaps to add the sequins and other shaker items to my cards. To help the items "shake" I use CTMH 3D Foam Tape or CTMH Thin 3D Foam Tape on the back of my cards. I have found that the best sized Flip Flaps is 3" x 3" or 3" x 4". 

These are some of my most recent shaker cards.

 To cut the circle on this card I used the NEW Basic Circles Thin Cuts

I used the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the shape for this card. The sentiment is from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge


I used the CTMH Artbooking Cricut Cartridge to cut the shape for this card. The sentiment is from the Flower Market Cricut Cartridge. I also cut the shape in coloured cardstock (Raspberry) and added that behind the shaker for this one.

To cut the Dragon Fly on this card, I used the Dreamin' big Cardmaking Bundle Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I then stamped the dragonfly with Versamark Ink Pad and embossed it with silver embossing powder on the base of my card before adding the shaker element on top.  
For this card, I cut the butterflies using the Dreamin' big Cardmaking Bundle Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I then stamped the butterfly with Versamark Ink Pad and embossed it with silver embossing powder on the base of my card before adding the shaker element on top. 

This card was made for my daughter's friend's birthday. I cut the circle with the NEW Basic Circles Thin Cuts, and the Dragonfly and Butterflies with the Dreamin' big Cardmaking Bundle Stamp Set and Thin Cuts. I stamped the critters with Lagoon, Pear & Sea Glass Ink Pads and used the Versamark Ink Pad and Silver Embossing powder for the sentiments. To finish off, I used the Clear Shimmer Brush on the critters. 

Come back again soon and see what else I have been creating.

Easter Bunny Cuteness

The February Stamp of the Month is just so CUTE! 

I was recently inspired by a card I saw on Facebook by Corrina Murphy using this stamp set to create a page layout.
The card by Corrina, made me think of those mischievous little rabbits searching for Easter Eggs, so I made this layout to reflect that.
It was a fun and easy page to make. Thank you to Corrinna for sharing your cute card!
