Birthday Cut It Up Challenge #128 - One Step At a Time

Hi all!

Today is my husband's birthday so I made him a birthday card using the Simply Charmed cartridge. Both the balloons and cake are from that cartridge. I am playing along with Cut it Up challenge #128 - One Step at a time challenge which is to make a step card! My husband was impressed with the step card style. Hope you enjoy!

Falling For You Paper Play Sketch 49 Challenge

Hello out there!

It has been many years since I've been active on here (4) but now things are more settled in my life and I am back and in the crafting mood again and in our first house which I just realized it's been almost a year that we've been here! Three months away...crazy how time flies.

I am about to go back to school on Monday from summer break (kids come back Thursday but teachers on Monday) but I'm really hoping to be able to craft every now and then. If not during the week, then maybe on the weekends. We'll see how it goes and how busy I am this school year!

So my first papercraft creation in a very long time is a card. I just love making cards and I am using PaperPlay Sketches Sketch 49 to create my card. Since I'm going back to school, my summer is pretty much over and I'm looking onwards to the fall season and decided to make a fall themed card.

I used Create a Critter 2 cartridge to make my fall tree and the leaves are from Create a Critter cartridge. I embossed the white paper behind the tree with a leaves folder for my cuttlebug and inked over it in brown ink. I also embossed the tree with a tree bark folder. The papers are just from a Fall and Halloween stack I got from Hobby Lobby a long time ago. The brown paper also has wood grain of a tree on it. I have so much paper and embellishments that I really need to make sure I use before I go on a craft shopping spree! It's kind of ridiculous!

So there's my card and I hope you enjoy it!

Thanks for stopping by!

Cut It Up Challenge #25--What's Bugging You?

Happy Friday!! Today's challenge at Cut it Up Challenges is "What's Bugging You?". Make a creation using a bug! And of course, you must use a die cut.

Here is my creation:

I made this card using green cardstock making an A2 card--4 1/4" X 5 1/2". Then I added this pretty leaf paper which measures 4" X 5 1/4". The leaf I cut out from the "In My Garden" cartridge. It was cut at 2.5". The little caterpillar is from "Create a Critter" cartridge and is also cut at 2.5". Then I added the sentiment "Cute as a bug!" stamped in black to the corner of the card. Super simple and easy! 

Thanks for taking a look and be sure to check out the other DT member's creations and how to play along HERE.

Happy Friday all!!
