SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Clothing

     Hi and welcome to my blog! I am here this week with a new die cut challenge from Stuck On U Sketches and it is Clothing. This challenge was a little difficult at first because I had no idea what I was going to do with it. I decided at first to look through my stamps and see what I could come up with for a saying to go with my design whatever it was going to be. After I saw the saying "Hang in there" I came up with the idea of a clothesline. I then searched my Cricut cartridges for a clothesline die cut. I found the perfect one from Country Life.
I cut the line out at 4". I also decided that I wanted a real line instead of the paper one so I took a piece of twine and glued it to the paper line. The clothespins were just glued on top of it. I then put white eyelets in the corners. I stamped the card with the My Pink Stamper stamp and there you have this really cute, but inspiring card. Here are the details:

  • Cricut art: Country Life
  • Paper: Bazzill
  • Twine: Own stock
  • Eyelets: Doodlebug
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
     I really hope you like my project for the SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Clothing. It really was fun to put together and I like the way it came out. Thanks so much for coming to my blog and taking a look. Have a great weekend! :)

SOUS Die Cut Challenge - Key To My Heart

     Hi and welcome to my blog! First I want to say I am so sorry this is up so late. Life got away from me and I forgot but I have it up now :) Today we have a new challenge from SOUS and it is called Key To My Heart. At first I thought of using a really cute svg file from Miss Kate Cuttables but I decided to go a different route. Anything chocolate, especially cupcakes, are the Key To My Heart so I am going to use the literal meaning of Key To My Heart.
     I am using a standard A2 card base of 4-1/4" by 5-1/2" to start off my project. Next I chose to use a cupcake from Cricut cartridge Sweet Treats cut at 4-1/2". I
decided to use Valentine colors to using the suggested colors in the booklet. I embossed the top of the cupcake to give some dimension to the frosting and added some cute sequins as candy sprinkles. The sentiment on the bottom is using a die cut from My Craft Spot. It is hard to see the dimension of it
sticking out but it gives a little more flair to the card. Here are all the details:

  • Cricut cart: Sweet Treats
  • Paper: Doodlebug Lovebugs
  • Cardstock: Bazzill
  • Ribbon: Really Reasonable Ribbon
  • Sequins: Own Stock
  • Stamp: My Pink Stamper
  • Ink: Versafine Onyx Black
  • Banner: My Craft Spot
  • Adhesive: Scotch, Zig
     Thanks so much for coming to my blog and looking at my Stuck On U Sketches Die Cut Challenge - Key To My Heart project. This card was so much fun putting together with all the extras. My favorite part would have to be the banner. Love the dimension. Well, have a great weekend everyone and thanks again for coming! :)
