Die Cuttin Diva's Challenge

This week at Die Cuttin Diva's we are celebrating Music in our schools month.

When I was in grade school I was lucky to go to a school that had a pretty cool music program. We got to play all sorts of instruments that you just don't see anymore. I took piano lessons on and off throughout grade school and high school until I joined the hand bell choir and a vocal group in high school. Not to mention plays, musicals, and performances. Needless to say I loved all of the experiences I had because of music in my schools.

I used my Cuttlebug embossing folder and the Rock Princess Cricut cartridge for this card. The stamp is a dollar find from Michael's.

Join us at the Die Cuttin Diva's Blog for this week's Music challenge.

Wobble Wednesday's First Challenge

A year or so ago my sister introduced me to action wobbles and I fell in LOVE.
These hidden craft supplies make cards so much fun!

I am entering this card in Wobble Wednesday's first challenge: Anything goes.

I used the robotz and indie art carts from cricut, the diamond plate from cuttlebug, and copper brads from my stash. The robot is (of course) on an action wobble!
After I had finished my card my husband said, "Is that a cow?"
I was crushed but went with it and it is now known as the robot cow card. :)

Thanks for visiting my blog.

Die Cuttin' Diva's Challenge

We have a color challenge for you this week:
Green, Yellow, Black, and White.

One of the gifts I received for Christmas was this book:

I decided to try my hand at the Iris fold. These were the supplies I chose to use.

I cut out a couple of Shamrocks using the Paper Doll Dress Up Cartridge. Cut at 3".

The four patterned papers I cut into 1.5" strips (only one 12" strip for each paper.)
and folded them in half.

Then you use the back side of the image and tape your pieces alternating the patterned paper and angling the paper 15-30 degrees every layer.

This is what my card looks like all finished. I used Trendy Twine for the bottom of the card. The stamp is from My Creative Time and the buttons were a gift from my best friend's mom.

I look forward to your entries this week and Hope that you try this fold on your project for this week's color challenge over at Die Cuttin' Diva's.
Thanks for visiting.

Die Cuttin Diva's

What a great challenge we had last week at Die Cuttin Diva's. I loved seeing all of your projects.
This week is sketch week at DCD.

It is March already (can you believe it!) and I wanted to make a St. Patty's Day card.

I used Paper Doll Dress Up Cricut Cartridge for the shamrock, Trendy Twine for the bow, and the trim if from Hobby Lobby.the sentiment is from my favorite stamp creator, Emma at My Creative Time. I know I didn't follow the theme of the sketch as most of the DT did, but I do love how different all of their cards turned out as well.

Head on over to the Die Cuttin Diva's sketch challenge and enter to win our blog candy. I am sponsoring the challenge this week. I wanted to stock you up for St. Patty's Day!

Thanks for stopping by.

Critter Sketch Challenge

This week our challenge is simple... Use Buttons. That's it.
I decided to create a frame out of the buttons I received for my birthday.

I know Valentine's Day has past but I love how the frame turned out.
I do have plans to add ribbon to the frame and an image inside the frame.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope to see you at Critter Sketch.
