Have a Racin' Good Birthday!

Hi Crafters! Today Glora & I are doing our Cricut Cut Challenge. Fun! :)  I chose this fun race car on the Beep Beep Cricut Cartridge for this months cut.  I find it fun making boy cards.  I enjoy the challenge.  lol  This card I made for my nephews birthday.  My sisters family LOVES Nascar, especially Jimmy Johnson.  So yes, I know this isn't a Nascar style of racecar, but I don't care.  It's a race car and I used his colors.  I'm good.  lol

I had this idea that I wanted to create a "crowd".  I remember seeing a cake that used sprinkles on it to create a crowd and loved that idea and I wanted to try and figure out if I could recreate that on a card.  So I thought 'Sprinkles = Glitter' and tried it out.  I cut out, by hand, a semi circle-ish shape and covered it with glue on top.  I took a pinch of glitter from a lot of different colors and combined them in one bowl and mixed it together.  I then poured that over the glue tape and spread it around.  It's kind of hard to see in the picture but it turned out better than I thought.  It also catches the light in every angle.  Reminds me of the flashes of camera, so, I'm happy.  :)

For the rims I used the i-Top brads without the tops attached.  I thought it looked more like car rims. 

Be sure to head on over to Glora's to check out what she made using this cut.  I can't wait to see it myself!  :)

Simply Thank You

Hi Crafters & Bakers! Today I'm making a card off of an Easter cookie my cousin Georganne made in March 2012. I needed some inspiration for a Thank You card. Of course, I go to her creative site (it's amazing, check it out) and saw this little gem and thought it would be a perfect card. Thanks Georganne!!! :)

 To see the post showcasing this yummy creative deliciousness go HERE.  The following is my version of this cookie:

To make the dotted pattern I found this dotted cut on the Holiday Cakes Cricut cartridge.  OK first, I had NO clue I had that cartridge!  LOL  Second, I layered it on my Gypsy to create this design and just hid the rectangle that surrounded the dots so the dots were the only thing that was cut.  The cut is found on page 64 in the handbook and on button 37.  This is what the cut looks like:

Thanks for stopping by!
