Peachy Challenge 10 :: Just Cards :: Faux Stitching

Hi everyone.  This has been a really sad week for us at the house.
 As some of you might know we had 6 Shih Tzus doggies.  Well this week Missy who was my second fur baby got really sick and we had to put her to sleep.  Her Kidney's failed and there was nothing we could do to help.  Very Sad.

Well today I thought I would get into my craft room and change the mood a little.  

For today's challenge I used the
 PK stamp:PK-257 Easter Basket Bunny
Creative Time:Happy Hunting
Creative Time:Gift Card Sentitement
Paper is:BoBunny
Ink:Archival Rose Madder

It's A Coffee Date

Monday Madness...... Imagine THAT! Color challenge

For my project I used the Imagine and printed the paper from the Bubblegum Stripes cartridge.
The box is from Wrap It Up cartridge which was cut on the E2 only because I have problems when 
using CCR to print and cut on the Imagine and I wanted to hide the Tie that was part of the box.
The Latte's are from the new Coffee Break collection from

I Like You A Latte

For this project I used Emma's new stamp set You Are Perk-fect and Die is from Coffee Break.  These are from her March release.  Cute stuff.  The background is also Emma's, Spring Chicken Barkgrounds stamped with Archival Ink, Saffron.   The punch is Martha Stewart and I used Craft Card Stock for the card.
It sure feels good to get back into my Craft room after being down with the Flu or something for 8 days.  I am almost good to go.  Hopefully tomorrow I fell like my old self.

Just for You

Hop Release Link-up part-tea! 
So today Emma released her new collection for March.  I received my stamps today and had an idea of what I wanted to do, but you know how that goes.  What is in your head does not always turn out like you imagined.

Also Emma is always looking for different ways to use her Dies and here is my idea for today.  I used the Coffee Break set and used the COFFEE CUP DIE and inverted it to be a Vase.  I think it worked!
Also used her oval Die and the JUST FOR YOU is from her new set also, You Are Perk-Fect but I masked the top of the stamp and took of Freshly Brewed.  Well there you have it.

Jinger Adam's Design Team Call

Hi, my name is Barbara Brusca.  Better know as Barbara Craft Me This.  I have been crafting for about 2 years now and really love it.  I am retired so I have all the time in the world to just craft.  I have a studio, or craft room that I can go to in my house  any time of the day or night.

I now have the Expression, the E2 and the Imagine.  I also have the Gypsy and the Big Shot so I am pretty much Equiptmentized...  I guess that is not a word but it works for me.

I have been using mostly Emma's stamps and Peachy Keen stamps.  I am a fan of both.

This morning I saw this call on face book so I thought I would submit a project.  I would love to be on a Design Team because that is what I love to do, Design.

For my card I used  Kates ABC's
The Bunnies are cut at 3.5 2.5 and 2
The fence is done with a Die Cut from Emma (Creative Time For Me) Tiny Tags and then inked.
The grass is cut with Martha Stewart Sissors and the flowers are also one of her punches cut in a square and then added some fancy buttons for the flowers.
Threaded the ribbon through the fence to give it a little more dimension.
The colored flowers on the bottom are a tape runner.

I also enjoy doing videos and have posted some of my projects on You Tube under

A few of my Cards were published in the Cricut Cards magazine last August issue.  Pages 25 and 47.  That was really exciting.
Thanks for the opportunity to submit and thanks for taking a look at some of my projects.

Monday Madness...."IMAGINE" that! CHALLENGE ~ Episode 324

For my card I used the Imagine and Kate's Kitchen.  This is such a cute cartridge.  The design had only one flower pot but I added two more and then used the PK stamp for the  faces and Tiny Tags Greeting for the sentiment.  Cut the design in layers and used pop dots.  This was a fun project.  Thanks for stopping.

Happy Birthday Card

So this is a non Cricut non any kind of machine card.  I think this is the easiest card I ever made.
The card is an A2 card made with craft paper and then I matted it with BoBunny Smoochables stack.
The best part is the stamp from none other than Emma's collection "Gift Card Sentiments" Happy Birthday.  Well that was easy and fun. The card is for my husband who is having a birthday tomorrow.
