The Theme: Red,yellow & blue, any Cricut cartridge.
I used the Mini Monograms cartridge to create the base of the card, I cut out 2 shadow layers and adhered them together. Then I cut out the largest die in the Spellbinders Star Circles, along with the little star.
I made the rocket with the Cricut Lite B is for Boy cartridge and added some Glossy Accents to the window. The rocket is flying by the moon which is made with the pop-up moon Fiskars punch.
The sentiment is from Pink By Design’s Small Things which I embossed in black.
I used red cardstock for the inside, cut out with the Mini Monograms cartridge and cut off the very top to fit.
The Alien also comes from the B is for Boy cartridge, I cut him out at 2″ and added some googly eyes in red, yellow and blue for some fun. The sentiment comes from Pink By Design’s Train Station stamp set.
I will be linking up this post to Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday, head on over and check out what some talented crafters have been up to.

So here is my entry for challenge # 1
The Tombstone and sentiment are from the Peachy Keen Frankly stamp set. I used the masking technique in order to get 3 layered tombstones.
The paper is from K and Company Halloween 12×12 paper pack and embossed the sentiment with black embossing powder.
A couple of popdots for the tops of the tombstones and the sentiment which I used a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Die to cut out.
For the inside I used the tooth and Happy Halloween sentiment from the Frankly set as well. I used Memento Grape Jelly Ink with clear embossing powder and black embossing powder for the teeth.
Yesterday I went to a Surprise Birthday party for my friend’s daughter, she turned the big 10. We all huddled by the door with balloons in our hands, waiting for her to open the door and throw them at her.. SURPRISE!!
She had this huge smile on her face and her eyes wide, in shock walking around in a slight daze.
Good food, friends, family and of course birthday cake = a Dino-Mite birthday party.
She loves dinosaurs so I made this Triceratops card with the Dinosaur Tracks Cricut cartridge.
I made this card the same way as the Happy Piggy Party card, by cutting 2 shadow layers and adhering them together, then cutting all the remaining layers.
I ran some of the layers through my Cuttlebug with the Mesh embossing folder to give him scaly skin. (I forgot to emboss the brown legs.. Oops!)
For the inside of the card I used the first layer and then cut part of the top off so it would fit inside. I used the Dinosaur Party stamp set by Pink Cat Studio for the inside sentiment with some Cottage Ivy Memento Ink.
It was a Dino-Mite birthday filled with lots of love, fun and excitement for a very surprised 10 yr old!
So this week Provo Craft had a sneak peek of the new Create a Critter 2 cartridge. They allowed 5 images to be revealed on the Cricut Craft Room for Crafters to use and create with for a few days.
The best part…. make a project, post it on the Cricut Project Center and be entered to win access to the WHOLE library of cartridges on the Cricut Craft Room.
Can you believe that?! Crazy!
So here is my entry.
I call him Happy Piggy Party.
Using the Create a Critter 2 cartridge I cut 2 Piggy Shadow layers at 6″. Then scored one shadow layer at the base of the pig’s ear, folded and adhered to the other shadow layer, this made my card base.
I cut the remaining layers and adhered them together. I paper pieced the hat with pink and white star patterned paper and added some white mini star brads. I also used 2 yellow flower buttons with Glossy Accents.
For the inside of the card I cut 1 more layer but this time I hid the contour lines to leave me with just a outline. I then used Pink By Design’s Simply Everything and Country Living stamp sets for the sentiment.
I will be linking this to the Sarah Hamer’s Link Up Tuesday. Check out what everyone has been busy crafting away to this week.
