Yay! It’s Friday! That doesn’t really mean that much to me, since I work weekends and shift work so I don’t have a weekend in the traditional sense, but hey! I’m excited for you if that’s how you roll
It’s a brand new challenge for you at Creative Corner Challenges this week. Let’s think outside the box and come up with some unusually shaped cards..anything but square or the traditional rectangle. The DT has some great inspiration for you on the blog this week.
I decided to break out my Wild Card Cartridge and one of my favorite ones on it is the Owl. So I cut it out usual some Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper. I’ve had it forever in my stash! I then added just some stickles for definition because that paper is pretty loud…LOL
It’s just a simple card because I am sending it out in the mail for an RAK so it can’t have a lot of embellishments on it. I hope you like it.
Stay tuned because we’ve got some changes coming up in May on the blog. Fun Fun Changes.
Amazing how Thursdays just creep up on you isn’t it, but it’s a good thing because that means it’s only one more day until the weekend! This week’s challenge is Shape it Up..we want to see a card or project that isn’t in the traditional square/rectangle shape. Hearts, circles, stars, birdhouses..whatever you can come up with, we want to see it. The DT is featuring this cute little set called Future Rock Star! Love her! As always with the challenge, we would love for you to use an AiFactory image but if you dont’ have any, so not a problem. Check out our freebie section and pick one up. You have to upload your project to the AiFactory Blog by Wednesday June 30 10:30pm EST to be eligible to win this set and a chance to be a guest designer with us. If you are uploading to an online gallery make sure that you label your card/project with AiF#41 so we can find it easily.
Here is my card this week…I chose to do a circle shape. I cut it out with my Wild Card Cartridge at 5.5″. It’s kind of hard to tell but I printed out the stars, colored them with my copics and then added a few layers of UTEE to make them a little thicker and to stand out a bit more. I printed the sentiment on the computer using one of the 100′s of fonts that I found for free on the internet. Using my Cuttlebug and Nestabilities, I cut her out, colored with Copics and then inked her up. I just fed the ribbon through the scallop holes. I hope you like the card and I hope that you will participate in this week’s challenge. I can’t wait to see what you do!

This week, you’ll find this card entered into the following challenges:
: Sugar and Spice (what could be more than a girly rocker??)
: Your favorite Sentiment (I love birthday sentiments, beyond the basic Happy Birthday!)
Cards for Men’s challenge this week is just a birthday card that could be used for a man/boy. Here’s mine. It’s not fancy but I liked the way it turned out. I’m still practicing with my copics…I cut the card shape using my new WildCard cricut cartridge.
I bought the book Cardmaking with Cricut by Tanya Fox and I love it. I’d been wanting it for awhile now so I got it. Although many of the cards are done with the WildCard Cartridge and the Expression, I believe that they can be tweaked to use the baby bug. This one is from page 4.
Here is the original
And here is my lift of it.
I didn’t have any little pearls for the eyes so I think that I will pick some up and swap them out for the beads. I don’t like them as much as I thought that I would. I think they’re too big.
Looking forward to making some more.
