My Pink Stamper Color Challenge

What a FAST and FUN 3 month term it's been being a member of the My Pink Design Team. Here is my project for the last challenge, which Robyn chose to do a color challenge using BROWN, GREEN, ORANGE, and PINK.

I used "straight from the nest" Cricut cartridge for the birds, which was the "border feature" and cut them at 3-1/2". The sentiment is from the "tweety-hoo" stamp set by My Pink Stamper. Paper is My Minds Eye and the cardstock is DCWV. I also used some wiggle eyes, a white pen, and a scallop border punch.

I would like to thank Robyn for a being a WONDERFUL design team leader and also for giving me this awesome opportunity and the ladies that I served with were FANTASTIC. Last but not least, I'd like to thank YOU, my viewers, for following me, supporting me, and leaving comments THANKS EVERYONE!

June "summer fun" project

For My Pink Design Team June project, the theme was "summer fun"!

I used "everyday paper dolls" Cricut cartridge for the grass, sun, and cloud......"create a critter" for the bird......"just because cards" for the tree.

The "fun memories" are from My Pink Stamper stamps "friends & family" set. For the sun's face I used Peachy Keen's "everyday character face assortment".

Cardstock and pattern paper is DCWV "flower shower stack". I did a lot of white stitch lines for a more "playful" feel!

After all the excitement of the new 24 Lite cartridges and the variety of those, I couldn't even begin to think of what type of cartridges would be released today on HELLO THURSDAY. Well, much to my surprise it was three Seasonals...H2O...Pumpkin Carving...and...October 31st. Plus a full content cartridge 3 Birds on Parade, which I understand Birds on Parade will be available through HSN in July. I really like ALL of these and hope to get my hands on them. The Seasonals will also be available in July, according to the Cricut Newsletter.

Just a friendly reminder that Megan at Above Rubies Studio is doing a LIVE show at 10pm EST. If you've commented on Above Rubies Studio during the celebration week you will want to watch as she'll be announcing winners! GOOD LUCK to everyone!!

"Truck" card

This card was my May "family" themed project for My Pink Design Team. I know, I'm posting it pretty late here, better late than never right!!  All of the papers are Stampin' Up. The truck was cut from the "heritage" Cricut cartridge. The sentiment was stamped using My Pink Stamper stamps "friends & family". This card could be used for a birthday or even for Father's day.

My Pink Stamper "LIVE"

Just a friendly reminder that Robyn is doing a "LIVE" show Friday evening at 8pm CST.

"Elk" card

Here is a card I made using one of the new "Criut Lite" cartridges called "Wildlife". It was the only new cartridge that my Wal-Mart had at the time, but I am hoping that after this Thursday and the official release, that my store will get the others in as well...I'm keeping my fingers crossed! This cartridge is great if you have an outdoors man or hunter in the family. Not only does it have the animal images but also wordage, very cool! Now on to the card, I cut the elk at 4 inches as well as the layers. All of the cardstock and pattern paper is Stampin' Up. The sentiment is from the My Pink Stamper stamps "family & friends". I ran the blue cardstock through my Cuttlebug using the "Moroccan" embossing folder.

Cricut Lite cartridges.

Exciting things are happening this week, as Provo Craft is officially releasing 24 of these new "Cricut lite" cartridges, which, from my understanding, you can purchase at your local Wal-Mart. Be sure to check this Thursday, June 10 for a special addition of HELLO THURSDAY!!! How exciting. Also on Thursday you may want to check out a few blogs RobynJoyMelanie, and Tammy as these ladies will be sharing projects they've made using these new releases.
