Cricut Cardz Challenge # 48

Hello Everyone,

For this challenge we needed to make a Thanksgiving card using the card feature from any cartridge and any colors we would like.

I chose to use the Wild Card Cartridge and cut this card from page 43 and cut it out at 6 1/2". I also used my Fiskars Seasonal Cassette punch set to cut the little leaves on the card and envelope. I used the Create a Critter to cut out the Turkey from page 70 and he is cut at 2 3/4". I also used brown, yellow, red, and orange ribbon. I used some Tim Holtz Adirondack Espresso Color Wash spray on the green leaf on the envelope. I sprayed some onto a paper towel and dabbed it onto the leaf to give it a fall look. Also, for the leaf look on the envelope I took a leaf off of one of the trees outside of my house and inked it with some marroon Colorbox chalk ink and pressed it onto my envelope!

Make sure you stop over to Cricut Cardz Challenge to see what the Design Team #1 created and remember you can join the challenge also and you have until Nov 2, 2010! Join the fun and creativity :)

Christmas Easel Card

I used Joys of the Season for my Christmas Tree and cut it at 4 inches. I used the Snowflake Cuttlebug embossing folder with Aluminum Foil straight from my kitchen!!! I have never made an easel card and I had fun designing this card!! Hope you'll give it a try. I also used the "Snow Maker" pen to make the snow on my Christmas tree;)

Halloween Treat Bags

I made these Halloween Treat bags for my daughter's daycare!

There are a total of 19. I used a "Happy Halloween" stamp from Michaels for $1. The goodie bags I purchased at Wal-Mart for $2 for a bag of 20. I also purchased some Halloween pencils $2/20 pack and mini activity books that were also $2/20 pack. I used my Martha Stewart spider punch to put their names on their treat bags! I also used some orange ink around the stamped image. Very simple and inexpensive :)
