Memorial Day

At JAS, the theme is Memorial Day, and here is what I created:

The vintage clip art is courtesy of The Graphics Fairy. I highlighted parts of the image with a Sakura Jellyroll Stardust pen. I tore strips of red paper out of my stash and layered it onto the card base to mimic the flag's stripes. I had some dark blue star paper that I tore into a square, attached that, then mounted the vintage image onto the cardstock.

Simple, but pretty! Please join us at Just-A-Scrappin'!

UPDATE: This was chosen as the DIY Craft Pick of the Week at:

I am so honored & thrilled.

Garden Party

At Exploring Cricut, the challenge theme this week is "Here comes Summer". Here's my project:

The card was made from the Creative Cards cartridge. This is actually a mash-up of two cards on the cartridge. I thought the cut out looked like a trellis. I used the leaves and flowers off a different card to layer the trellis like a clemantis vine. I used mini pearls for the flower centers. The sentiment was computer generated and cut out with a Spellbinders die. The flowers were also embossed with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.

I want to use this for a Garden Party this summer!
