Cardztv Mailbox Hugs Challenge #2

I am in love with this Tiny Greetings
stamp set from Cardztv Stamps!  It is not
only beautiful but a tremendous value.  I don't
think Mary left one thing out of this set.

I've been using it on smaller projects but
look how cute it is on this A2 size card.


Look how simple, yet elegant that tiny font is for
this sympathy card!  I love using this pop of pink 
(bright green would be awesome also) against that
layer of black cardstock.  I love the edge die to add
some detail, but oh my, this was an easy card!

This was also my first time at using Nuvo drops and I liked them.
I pulled out my black and grey stamp pads, and I just started building
this image with a floral stamp set.  If you have a vine set, that would be
lovely as well.

Thanks for stopping by today!  We would love to see your
creations - so join us in this challenge at Cardztv.
Who knows?  You may win the challenge and get a
free stamp set!

Have a great weekend!

Cardztv Challenge - Anything Goes!

Welcome to the first Mailbox Smiles Design
Team Challenge featuring Cardztv Stamps!

Mary introduced a new stamp set a few weeks
ago called Mini Messages.  It's an awesome
set that can be your "go to" set when you are 
creating cards, mini cards, layouts, bookmarks, 
or even use in your planner.  These tiny messages
cover almost any holiday or special day.


For my shaped cards, I used a jar die cut and made it
into a shaker.  I also used die cuts for the flowers and made
a bouquet out of all the flowers and adhered them on top
of each other.  I used the Cardztv Mini Messages set
to stamp a tiny banner with the message!

I love this stamp set!

Join us in the challenge and post your
creation on The Cardztv Blog.

We look forward to seeing what you create!

A Mother's Day Sketch Challenge with Cardztv!

Wow I cannot believe we are
already talking about Mother's Day!

Time is sure flying by, right?

Any who - here is my newest card
using the Cardztv Sketch #1.


I just love this sketch as it's truly one you can use over and over
again.  I used the Cardztv NEW stamp set called Mini Messages
for my sentiment.  I'm telling you - run to get this set!!!!

It's the perfect size for mini cards and those little skinny
labels on cards that are so popular right now!

I used my Cricut to print and then cut out image.
I'm not thrilled but I'm still learning.  I almost printed it
out again and used the Scan and Cut to see if there would
be any difference but I ran out of time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today.

Link your creation up on Cardztv for your chance
to win some free stamps from Mary!

Happy Spring!

How about an Easter Sketch Challenge!

Welcome to my blog!
Today I'm excited to share with you another
sketch challenge with the Cardztv Design Team!

Mary asked her designers to create an Easter card using
any sketch we wanted.  I chose sketch 3 - it's one of my favs!

SKETCH THREE


I love this sweet Easter card!  I used Lawn Fawn's perfectly plaid
6x6 paper pad for my paper.



I chose the Cardztv Set called Easter Punnies
for the Hippity Hoppity sentiment.

"EASTER PUNNIES"



This card will be sent to my grandchildren in
California to wish them a Happy Easter!

You have until April 6th, 2017 to add your
creation to the Cardztv challenge!

Thank you for stopping by today~

Cardztv Sketch Challenge #4

Mary has a new sketch and
I love it so much, this is the 2nd
time I've used it!


I love pink, black and lime green together!
Those colors just make me HAPPY, so I thought it was
fitting to use the sentiment "Get your happy on" from
the Cardztv Stamp Set Mixed Messages.

As you can see I used a scallop circle and die cut
for the bottom image.  I had just gotten in my
monthly ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon so 
I used that beautiful green.

I love this 8x8 paper pad from the Paper Studio
with it's all white/black pages.

Mary had an instructional video on her site last week
that showed you how to use your Cricut Design Space
to "flatten" images and print them out on a circle
or a rectangle or really any shape you want.
This was my first attempt and I can assure you
it won't be my last.  If you go back to the Cardztv Blog,
you can see the video where she creates this lovely
card with different papers but uses the same
Circuit cartridge.

Okay now it's time to get your
crafty side on!  Link up on Mary's
site for a chance to win a set of
Cardztv stamps.

You have until March 23, 2017
to add your creation!

Thanks for stopping by!
