This card features the Stamp of the Month S1305 – Pinwheel as well as the great paper pack, Dream Pop!!  I did not make this card as I received it as part of a swap.  I really like the use of black with the Dream Pop papers.  They used the Cricut collections to cut out the images that are stamped on as well as the mats for some of the images ( you could win one of these cartridges by joining my team this month!).  The layers of papers/colors make this card “happy”!

Let’s Celebrate!!

Pinwheels make my world go round!  One of my favorite paper artists made this card for a swap I host.  Joy McHargue made this great card showing off S1305 Pinwheel, our May Stamp of the Month! 

Lagoon, Pear,Creme BruIee, Smoothie are the ink/card stock colors.  Kraft paper is added as well.  With some baker’s twine, brads, and Red Glitz Glue – you’ve got a bright, happy card.  I love that you can use the Artiste Cricut Collection to cut out the pinwheels which you stamp.  Makes life soooo much more easy and fun! Wouldn’t you love to get this card in the mail?  I sure did!

Creatively Yours,

Dream Big……

On May 1, Jeff was promoted to Lieutenant an amazing dream come true for us.  I preserved this day using the Dream Pop papers in a layout I received from a swap I participated in.  I can’t take the credit for the artwork, just feeling very blessed to receive it.  Unfortunately, I don’t have the creator’s name to give credit for it.  I added Outdoor Denim as an accent color to the layout.  All the cuts for layering are from CTMH Art Philosphy or Artiste Cricut Cartridges.  One might thing the Dream Pop papers are too feminine but with the grey (Slate), green (Mint), and navy (Outdoor Denim), it works.  I love the added black sparkle papers (also CTMH)!!

Creatively yours,
