Welcome to our first 100 cartridge Blog Hop for 2012!! I have enjoyed being the hopper for months now and now I can to be both.. so EXCITED.. I am!
You should have arrived from http://theglamoroussideofscrapping.blogspot.com Ashley's AWESOME Blog
This is a long post so get a drink, relax and enjoy :)
I am so excited to be a Design Team Member over at Erica's Craft Room as today is my first official Blog Hop with the rest of my talented DT sisters :)
My cartridges I picked for Jan is: Feelin Groovy, Phrases, Robotz and Pink Journey. There are 4 cards shown here today.
My FIRST card is one that many of us can relate to either as a supporter or as a fighter. I have a friend in church that is such a fighter, you would have never known she had stage 4 breast cancer when she found out and told us. She amazed so many in Chemo with her spirit and fight and even gave strength to those who like me saw what she was going through and I can only pray I have the same fight should I ever endure this fight too. I saw her in this picture and purple is her favorite color. We walked with her many days and many nights.
My second project is 2 cartridges in one card... Feelin Groovy Valentine...
**I used Feelin' Groovy and Phrases. and with this I used the Imagine cartridge... I love the colors of the "hippie" era, I was in middle/High school when this phase was HOT... I will give this card to a friend of mine, she loved the bright colors and glitz look" :)
**The PHRASE cartridge is so awesome.. IF you are on the "line on whether to get it.. or not.. I would encourage you to do so.. Using it here for the word "feelin Groovy"
** ALL these awesome colors and designs are from the Imagine cartridge....
** I used the diamond Stickles to enhance her dress top and the bottom of her boots. As you can see she has a belt on.. It is from the remnants of the ribbon on the card itself.. NEVER throw anything away.. LOL. I also used the Diamond Stickles on all the dots on the green top layer paper. Just a lil extra bling..
** "Valentine" phrase is from the CTMH set of Say it in Style D1283
|the thread ribbon I used. That's what happens when you purchase from "scrapbook sales" no name packages...|
|I used pop dots to hold down the "feelin Groovy"|
My THIRD project is from Robotz.. SUCH an adorable cartridge! Today, I have made a gift bag using a green bag wrinkled and then blue ink all over it. (btw.. this is a messy process!!) I created the robot using #33 on the
**The letters were cut at 1.5 and the robot cut at 4.5. This robot had A LOT of pieces and like anything.. i had pieces left over.. oops.
**He is embossed on his hands, feet, tummy, and legs using the SPOTS and DOTS embossing folder from Cuttlebug.
**Bubblegum Stripes Imagine cartridge helped being this Robot to life with an outburst of colors!
**I made a small gift tag at 7.5 and embossed it with the Spots & Dots folder too and a little sand paper to give it a older look.
** a few more directions below pics.
|ink your embossed folder on the side with the print (cuttlebug, etc..) . put your paper item in there and roll away. When all done - just rinse off with water and let dry.|
|this is the effect the ink gives!|
|Gift tag embossed and held on by green twine from Ctmh..|
|Don't you just love my googly eyes! His tummy is embossed with the blue ink and then sandpapered to give it a awesome look.|
4th LAST but not least project is: Home Decor. My thoughts for this card is a kind of a.. thinking of you, your not alone type of a card.
