SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Industrial

     Hi and welcome. Today's project is from Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Industrial. Industrial can mean a few different things, gears, clocks, cameras, typewriters and such. I decided to use some gears and clock hands. I used Cricut Design Space for all the cuts on my Cricut Explore. The bottom red layer is cut at 5-3/4"x 5-3/4". The sentiment is cut at 5.67"x 3". And the clock hands were cut at .75"x 2" and .75"x 4". I used a red brad to secure the clock hands to the card. Here are the rest of the details:

  • Paper: Stampin' Up! Real Red, Basic Black, Whisper White
  • Cuts: Cricut Design Space
  • Brad: Oriental Trading
  • Adhesive: Zig 2 way Glue
     Thank you so much for coming on over to my blog and taking a look at my post. I really appreciate it. I hope you like it and join us over at SOUS for the Die Cut Challenge using this weeks theme. Have a great day! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - In The Garden

Hi and thanks for coming to my blog today. Here is my project for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge. For this week our challenge is In The Garden. With Spring now officially here I wanted something that showed Spring. So I did this really cute caterpillar crawling it's way on a flower. I used the Cricut cartridge Live Simply for the die
cut. I cut it out at 2-3/4" and pop dotted it to make it stand out. I embossed the back layer with a Cuttlebug folder Juli's Garden. I wanted something in the bottom right corner so I cut this doily from a die from My Craft Spot which is sadly out of business now. I layered a button on top
and put a piece of twine through it. I finally placed a piece of yellow ribbon around the layer and place everything on top. The inside of the card says Happy Spring stamped on it. Here are the details:



  • Cricut cart: Live Simply
  • Paper: Own stock
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Cuttlebug: Juli's Garden
  • Button: Own stock
  • Ribbon: Ofray
  • Doily: My Craft Spot
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamp Happiest Moments
  • Ink: Versafine in Onyx Black
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
Thanks again so much for coming to my blog and looking at my project. Don't forget to visit SOUS and join our Die Cut challenge this week of In The Garden. Post your link here. Well, have a great weekend and a great Spring. :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Clothing

     Hi and welcome to my blog! I am here this week with a new die cut challenge from Stuck On U Sketches and it is Clothing. This challenge was a little difficult at first because I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I decided at first to look through my stamps and see what I could come up with for a saying to go with my design whatever it was going to be. After I saw the saying "Hang in there" I came up with the idea of a clothesline. I then searched my Cricut cartridges for a clothesline die cut. I found the perfect one from Country Life.
I cut the line out at 4". I also decided that I wanted a real line instead of the paper one so I took a piece of twine and glued it to the paper line. The clothespins were just glued on top of it. I then put white eyelets in the corners. I stamped the card with the My Pink Stamper stamp and there you have this really cute, but inspiring card. Here are the details:

  • Cricut art: Country Life
  • Paper: Bazzill
  • Twine: Own stock
  • Eyelets: Doodlebug
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
     I really hope you like my project for the SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Clothing. It really was fun to put together and I like the way it came out. Thanks so much for coming to my blog and taking a look. Have a great weekend! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Key To My Heart

     Hi and welcome to my blog! First I want to say I am so sorry this is up so late. Life got away from me and I forgot but I have it up now :) Today we have a new challenge from SOUS and it is called Key To My Heart. At first I thought of using a really cute svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables but I decided to go a different route. Anything chocolate, especially cupcakes, are the Key To My Heart so I am going to use the literal meaning of Key To My Heart.
     I am using a standard A2 card base of 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" to start off my project. Next I chose to use a cupcake from Cricut cartridge Sweet Treats cut at 4-1/2". I
decided to use Valentine colors to using the suggested colors in the booklet. I embossed the top of the cupcake to give some dimension to the frosting and added some cute sequins as candy sprinkles. The sentiment on the bottom is using a die cut from My Craft Spot. It is hard to see the dimension of it
sticking out but it gives a little more flair to the card. Here are all the details:


  • Cricut cart: Sweet Treats
  • Paper: Doodlebug Lovebugs
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Sequins: Own Stock
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Banner: My Craft Spot
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
     Thanks so much for coming to my blog and looking at my Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Key To My Heart project. This card was so much fun putting together with all the extras. My favorite part would have to be the banner. Love the dimension. Well, have a great weekend everyone and thanks again for coming! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Warm and Cozy

Here is my Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Warm and Cozy. I had a little trouble at first coming up with idea of a project for this challenge. I had to think about what makes me all warm and cozy and I came up with the idea of a nice warm beverage of either a hot coffee or hot cocoa with nice melting marshmallows on top. I knew then I had my project. I started with the Cricut Lite cartridge Love A
Latte. I used my Cricut Explore to cut it out and did a beautiful job at all the tight corners. I am really loving my Explore. I cut the cup out at 4-1/2". This gave plenty of room for my stamp on top. I used foam adhesives to pop the cup up off of the card it's self. Here are all the details:

  • Cricut cart: Love A Latte
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Stamp: My Craft Spot
  • Ink: Versafine
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
I thank you so much for coming to my blog. And thank you for looking at my SOUS Die Cut challenge project. I hope you all have a great weekend. :)
