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. :)

Valentine's Day Card

Hi again and welcome to my blog! If you are looking for my SOUS Challenge blog just scroll down some. I have decided to get started a little early this year with my Valentine's Day cards instead of putting it off until next month. I am going to make several different types and I plan to send them to family members and of course my husband. My first card in this series is this really cute card I made with my Cricut Explore and Cricut cartridge Love Struck. I have loved this die cut since the moment I saw it and
have wanted to use it on a card so bad so here it is. I cut it out at 5". I used a pretty metallic paper from Michael's and I also used Doodlebug's new Valentine's Day paper Love Bugs. This paper is so cute. I got it at Amazon.com. Here is the rest of the details:

  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Paper: Doodlebug Love Bugs, Michael's metallic paper
  • Lace: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Snow

Hello and welcome to my blog. Here is my card for the SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Snow. I was inspired to make this card after we got our first snowfall on Jan 1st, New Year's Day. All the animals searching for food through the snow. I used an A2 sized card for my base along with a light blue layer cut at 4 x 5-1/4. The next layer I cut was 3-3/4 x 5 and then I embossed it.  I cut the tree from Cricut cartridge Jolly Holidays at 4 inches. The robins were cut from Cricut cartridge
Winter Woodland at 2 inches and 1-1/2 inches. I placed stickles on the snow at the base of the tree and the snowflakes. Here are the rest of the details:

  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Embossing: Cuttlebug's Snowflakes
  • Ink: Blue Lagoon from Color Box
  • Stickles: Diamond
  • Blue dots: I-Rock
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Anything New Year

      Hi everyone and welcome to my blog! Today I have a Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge for you. The theme is Anything New Year. I created this cute little card for you with this adorable penguin on it all dress out and ready for a night out on the town. I used Create a Critter 2 for my die cut and I cut him out at 3.90" on my Cricut Explore.
It is great for cutting little tiny things like his bow tie and cane. I used Stickles on his hat band, bow tie, and cane to give him a little sparkle on such a big night.
Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Create a Critter 2
  • Paper: DCWV The Year Round Stack
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper "Happiest Moments"
  • Ink: Versafine - Onyx Black
  • Stickles: Starry Night
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas

     Welcome to my blog! Today I have a card I made for the Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Anything Christmas. I really love this really cute reindeer and thought he would look perfect on top of a Christmas card. I made it look like he is flying over the roof tops on Christmas Eve. I cut the little reindeer out from Cricut cartridge Create A Critter 2. I cut him out at 4". I put some Xmas Red Stickles
on his nose too. I then place him on the card. I know it is kind of hard to see the embossing underneath the reindeer. It is supposed to say Merry Christmas. I embossed with gold powder. I think next time I will do the embossing more then once! :) Here are the details:

  • Cricut cart: Create A Critter 2
  • Paper: American Crafts
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper "Christmas Biggie"
  • Stickles: Xmas Red
  • Embossing powder: Gold
  • Ink: Versamark clear
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
