A Sketch in Red & Green

This week at Die Cuttin' Divas we are looking back at all the fun sketch challenges we had this year. The first Tuesday of the month is always fun. We are asking that this week you select one of the year's sketches and make a card featuring red and green.  I used the June sketch to make this fun holiday card.
I love this fun tree and thought it would look good with this paper I had in my paper stash.  I selected the June sketch and got to work.

It is so fun to work with the sketches and I liked the added twist of using red and green.
Hope you get a chance to play along with us this week.

Supplies:
- Celebrate With Flourish Cricut Cartridge - tree
- Gold Stickles
- Sketch by Carson's Creations.

A Little Sparkle with Die Cuttin' Divas

I forgot to share my project with you this week for Die Cuttin' Divas - Make it Sparkle challenge.  I had my photo all set up for the challenge but forgot to share it on my own blog!!
I made these autograph books for my daughter and 2 nieces for our Thanksgiving trip. I found an svg file that matched the design used on some T-shirts my mom ordered for the girls.  I wanted these to be simple but had to add some sparkle!!

So sorry I forgot to share.  Still time to play along at DCD.

Sweet Locker Tags

Happy Day  to all. This week the Die Cuttin' Divas are thankful for anything and everything so we are celebrating with an Anything Goes Challenge.  I am sharing these locker tags I made for my sister's 2nd grade class.
I get to make her locker tags every year and love it as my middle schoolers are not totally into locker tags!! For this set of tags I made some sweet treats!
I combined 2 different ice cream treats to make these.  I used sundaes from Summer Celebrations and Sweet Treats to get just the right look for the locker tags. I also embossed the whipped cream to make it extra special.
I hope you have an extra special week and get to have the treat of time with your family.  I also hope you get time to join us and our anything goes challenge!

Supplies:
- Summer Celebrations Cricut Cartridge- sundae bottom
- Sweet Treats Cricut Cartridge - sundae whipped cream and cherry

I love this little Igor character and knew he needed a card this year. I cut him and the lettering from A Frightful Affair Cricut Collection. Once I had him all cut out he needed something so i added the embossing behind him and a little touch of sparkle in the lantern.
I love when you add simple touches to complete your look. I hope you are getting all your Halloween projects ready for your celebrations. Thank for visiting with me and I hope you can join in at Die Cuttin' Divas this week.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month with Die Cuttin' Divas

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month so Die Cuttin' Divas wanted to get in on the celebration of all the amazing fighters and survivors.
I found this wonderful saying and knew it would be a perfect card for one survivor I know. I added to this pennant shape and used print and cut to get it just right.  The border was added after printing.

I also print and cut the oval in the back after filling in with a pattern in Cricut Design Space. Now I can salute a hero who just finished her treatment. Hope you can join us this week  at DCD.

Supplies:
- Pink Journey Cricut Cartridge - ribbon
- Pretty Pennants Cricut Cartridge - pennant with border
- Bubblegum Stripe polka dot pattern fill
- Cotton Candy Stickles.
