The Winter/Holiday Challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge

It is Thursday and that means it is time for a new challenge at the Creative Knockouts Challenge Blog.  This week's challenge is Winter/Holiday.  Our wonderful sponsor is The Artsy Stamper and if you enter you have the chance to win 1 free image.

I used the pre-colored poinsettia image to create my card.

          


Holiday Card Recipe

This beautiful digi was printed on Georgia Pacific 110 lb paper twice.  I used my Brother Scan n Cut to cut out both images.  I stacked the images on top of each other using pop dots in between to give the image some dimension.  The sentiment is from Stampin Up and I stamped it in Versamark Ink and heat set it with Range Platinum embossing powder.  I'm thinking this would be a great card to mass produce for Christmas cards.

Have a great day and enjoy the journey and some chocolate.

Making a Quilt with Your Cricut Maker - The Series

Hi all - I am in the process of making a quilt with my Cricut Maker and am sharing the process.  Today I show what fabrics I've picked and what you need to start this project, too.  I am very excited that I have a machine that does such precision cutting and eliminates the need for me to cut all the fabric pieces.


My goal is to make my own quilt patterns to be cut with the Maker and share them.  I also want to use my new Cameo 4 with the rotary blade to cut fabric for quilting as well.

Thanks for stopping by.  Give this video a thumbs up if you like it, subscribe if you want to see more crafty videos, click the bell to be notified that I've uploaded a new video and share with your crafty friends.

Have a great day and eat some chocolate.

Holiday 4 Kids Card Recipe

This adorable cardinal is from Stampendous.  I stamped him on watercolor card stock in Versamark Ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder.  I colored him with Tombow markers and cut him out with the coordinating dies and popped up on white card stock.  The sentiment is from Momma Elephant.
