Paper Trimmings Snowman Card

I was not doing anything tonight and decided to make another Christmas Card.  I wanted to use a cartridge that I haven't used in awhile, so I decided to go with Paper Trimmings.  There is a cute snowman that only has two layers to cut.  I cut the snowman at 3.75 inches from Paper Trimmings.  I also used the markers on him to make the edges standout a bit more.  I cut the scalloped oval from the Lacey Labels cartridge and the sentiment from Create a Critter2. I used scrap paper except for the scallop, which came from Norland Paper pack by Farm House Paper Company.  The card was kinda blah, so I added some stickles, 3 snowflakes and a metal Christmas present, as well as a strip of washi tape.

Get Well Soon card

Yesterday I heard that one of my clients suffered a heart attack recently.  I decided to make him a card.  I found a card on pinterest and decided to do something similar.  The layout is the same as the pinterest card, but I did change the heart beat on the card.  I also cut it rather than using twine.
I downloaded a clip art and traced the image in SCAL2, then saved it as a SVG and cut it with my cricut explore.
The sentiment came from My Pink Stamper Get Well Wishes stamp set.

Christmas in July Challenge -- Card 2

Here is another card I through together this morning for the Christmas in July challenge.
I don't like the papers, and the card does not stand well due to the acetate, but here it is.

I used Martha Stewart border for the snow and glitter (tinsel)  from Martha Stewart as well, the snowman is cut from Creative Memories Cheerful Seasons.

Paper is from Stampin up for the base, and scraps.

Donut Happy Birthday card

Today is a co-worker's birthday.  He was away this past week so we will be celebrating it on Monday.
This co-worker loves his honey cruller donuts.  While I couldn't find a cut for a honey cruller, I did have a few donut cuts.  The inspiration for this card came from Pinterest, where the card was done with stamps, and die cuts from Stampin Up.

I used TBBM2 -- box
           Love you a latte
           Sweet Shop
           Fast Food
           Art philosophy -- banner

I used my Imagine machine for this project as I find this machine so easy.  Just pick the image, the size and the color you want it.  Then just load one sheet of paper.  The pattern paper comes from a dollar store pack of paper called Birthday Blast by Forever in Time.  The sentiment comes from Forever in Time as well, but I can't find a name on the stamp set. I used nail polish as the sprinkles on the card.  I'm not happy with the results of them but they will do.
